1. studioroosegaarde.net - The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands glowing stones inspired by 'Starry Night'. It charges at daytime and gives light at night. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage between Nuenen en Eindhoven NL, the area where Van Gogh lived in 1883.

    This is the second Smart Highway Project which are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure. The goal is to make smart roads by using light, energy and road signs that interact with the traffic situation.

  3. 8-House is located in Ørestad on the edge of Copenhagen. 8-House offers homes for people in all of life’s stages: the young and the old, singles, families that grow and families that become smaller. Instead of dividing the different functions of the building - for both habitation and retail - into separate blocks, the various functions have been spread out horizontally. The apartments are placed at the top while the commercial program unfolds at the base of the building. As a result, the different horizontal layers have achieved a quality of their own: the apartments benefit from the view, sunlight and fresh air, while the commercial merges with life on the street.

  5. Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: Climate, earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

    In the trailer you meet Aline Cavalcante in Sao Paulo, Brazil, From the same city also urban studies professor Raquel Rolnik and car salesman Nicolas Habib. Over the film we meet local historian and bike acitivist Dan Koeppel in Los Angeles. Joel Ewanick who defends the good souls of the car industry is a former top marketing director for General Motors, Porsche and more. He is now working with hydrogene car solutions in California.

A documentary about Jan Gehl and his town planning concept and my love to ride a bike, hike and enjoy nature inspired me to inform myself more about alternatives of classical "stressful car towns". Who wants will find here videos which I find interesting to that topic and topics connected to it.
