Travel to U.S.: Oklahoma: Norman in maps: Photo 12
A watershed: the moment that Norman broke free from gridded subdividions. The diagram compares two hypothetical subdivisions, one gridded and the other laid out as blocks around open space. The diagram was intended to show developers they they could make more money while providing a greater amount of green space. The diagram wasn't as theoretical as it looks, either, and the diagram on the right was actually built as shown. The street on the north is Robinson; the one on the right is Flood. Lee Rogers, the planner, for many years headed the university's department of regional and city planning.
