    • Pittsburgh: 'It's Better Than You Thought'


      from The Atlantic Added 1,249 38 0

      Since 2000, the tech boom has attracted droves of young, educated people to Pittsburgh. Now, many newcomers consider the city to be a bikeable and walkable paradise. This short documentary considers how it became cyclist-friendly, as well as how those changes strengthened local communities. "Everybody has a negative connotation of this city," says one resident. "It's a different place than most people think it is."

      • VIEWS OF DETROIT - exploring film in urban planning (Full Movie)


        from [PÅ::NU] Added 3,731 38 3

        This film, captured over two weeks in November 2010 by a group of Danish planning students, it is a part of a research experiment on how to use film as a method of urban development. The film uses a strongly subjective narrative, with no aim to point out answers to the challenges Detroit is currently facing. However we hope our methodology can inspire planners to include new perspectives from everyday life in their work: creating future cities. You can watch the film in full length or see the different chapters on this channel. www.vimeo.com/channels/viewsofdetroit We captured a full round with the light rail system of Detroit "The People Mover". We challenge musicians to download the film and ad their own soundtrack to it. We will gather the work at the People Mover channel: www.vimeo.com/channels/peoplemover _______________________________________________ Metodeeksperiment udført af tre studerende fra Plan, By & Proces, et byudviklingsstudie på Roskilde Universitet. Dette er ikke en dokumentar film i traditionel forstand, men et eksperiment over hvordan man kan bruge filmen som et aktiv research-, analyse-, empowerment- og dialogværktøj i byplanlægningen. Materialet er optaget over 14 dages feltarbejde i Detroit november 2010. Filmen er spundet over fire forskellige koncepter, der i denne film er sat sammen over flere forskellige kapitler.

              • Augmented Urban Model


                from Katja Knecht Added 30.6K 34 4

                In architecture and urban planning physical and digital models fulfil different tasks and functions within the design process and are not directly connected. This is due to their largely complementary characteristics and qualities. Whereas physical models are primarily used as a design tool and to represent and communicate a design, digital models also support the evaluation of a design by employing computer-aided analysis and simulation techniques. Within the scope of my master thesis I analysed the use of the model as an analogue and digital design tool as well as its importance for the work process. In addition, I examined existing tangible user interfaces from the field of architecture and urban design. Based on early projects and approaches in this area such as the metaDESK by Ullmer and Ishii and the Urban Planning Tool Urp by Underkoffler and Ishii I developed a prototype application, the Augmented Urban Model. The Augmented Urban Model aims to bridge the gap between physical and digital models and their usage in urban design and planning. The objective is furthermore to create a tangible user interface which facilitates interaction with and manipulation of digital data in real space. It combines the qualities of physical and digital models in the work process to facilitate the handling of digital applications and transfers digital data into a spatial context by augmenting the physical model with digital information. The Augmented Urban Model was realised using current technologies, such as a back projection table and conventional consumer electronics (Microsoft Kinect), which enabled me to use and process non-predefined model elements. I implemented a simple shadow simulation to test the prototype. The application was developed in Visual Studio 2010 using csharp (C#).

                    Propomos uma rede lógica de ciclovias planas para Lisboa, com inclinação entre 0% e 4%, visível na rua, ligando as principais zonas da cidade. Gosta? Lisboa Horizontal candidatou-se ao concurso Ideias de Origem Portuguesa da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian - façam favor de votar e partilhar ! http://2015.ideiasdeorigemportuguesa.org/ideias/78 Acreditamos na bicicleta como um meio de transporte alternativo, viável e promotor de Felicidade Individual e Colectiva, que promove a Sustentabilidade Económica e Ambiental das Sociedades! Mais do que a utilização das bicicletas de forma lúdica ou recreativa, o Projecto Lisboa Horizontal visa criar condições físicas e exequíveis (conceito inspirado nas linhas de METRO) que promovam a circulação de bicicletas na cidade de Lisboa, numa óptica utilitária e pragmática, abrangendo de forma massiva públicos-alvo que vão desde a classe trabalhadora aos turistas, passando pelos estudantes, numa cidade cujo desafio de sustentabilidade ambiental se apresenta como uma das grandes prioridades futuras! Crescimento Económico, Criação de Emprego Local, Aumento da Productividade, Melhoria da Qualidade Ambiental e Diminuição das Despesas com a Saúde das Propulações, são apenas algumas das vantagens abordadas em diversos estudos (Business Insider Mag “13 Reasons You Should Start Biking To Work, Mandi Woodruff, 2012) e publicações (ex. “Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save The Economy, Elly Blue, Microcosm Publishing, 2014), baseados em casos reais, por esse mundo fora! O Projecto Lisboa Horizontal afirma-se assim como um motor de mudança em prol de uma Sociedade Mais Feliz e Económica e Ambientalmente Sustentável! https://www.facebook.com/lisboahorizontal http://www.lisboahorizontal.pt

                      Ton Matton is a Dutch-born urban planner who moved to the countryside in eastern Germany to break out of an everyday life designing soulless suburbs and performing uninspiring jobs. Nearly ten years ago, he found a deserted schoolhouse in Wendorf, close to the Baltic coast, and made it his Werkstatt Wendorf, a place for experiments and free thinking.
