Tactical Urbanism and City Planning and Book Review. Tactical Urbanism / Island Press Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change, a new book by urban planners Mike Lydon and Anthony Garcia is the first book to really organize all the small fixes that seem to have spontaneously sprung up in so many communities in a way that everyone can understand.

Tactical Urbanism and City Planning and Book Review

These fixes — some temporary and others long-term — aim to address common problems in communities today, often in streets and public spaces: a lack of safe sidewalks or crosswalks; the absence of clear signage; the dearth of neighborhood parks and plazas, and, more broadly, the lack of community connection and solidarity. Shedding its perception as an illegal or “guerrilla” approach, tactical urbanism is becoming a method of choice for innovative local governments, developers, or non-profits as well. As Lydon and Garcia explain in a great overview that provides deep historical context, “tactical urbanism” isn’t new. Dutch woonerf / Dick van Veen Yarnbombed tree / Made in slant.

Vinge Station, by Henning Larsen Architects, Vinge, Denmark A visit to the future Vinge, Denmark, train station will likely evoke the imagination of Star Wars rather than the tradition of Hogwarts.

Stunning New Train Station Brings Landscape to Center of City

The design by Henning Larsen Architects is futuristic, visionary, and beautiful. The Danish studio won an architectural competition to design the S-train station that will form the chief transportation hub in the center of Vinge, a 350-hectare city to be built in the Frederikssund region north of Copenhagen. The S-train is a network of regional trains in the Copenhagen area. A team from Henning Larsen Architects, in cooperation with Tredje Natur, MOE A/S and the Irish Railway Procurement Agency, designed the proposal, which a competition jury called both visionary and beautiful.

New Piazza Design Turns Dead Space into Vibrant Social Space

Look at the path. It leads the user to a social nodal space. The Piazza Nember in Jesolo, Italy, by Valeri Zoia and Stradivarie Architects, is a well-designed space for social activities with its pathways of contrasting colors, and play areas that allow children and adults alike to experience the joy of play and meeting new friends. Location The town lies north of Venice, between Eraclea and Cavallino-Treporti.

Modelos ciudadanos en un lugar de abundancia energética >> Alterconsumismo

No alcanza todos los puntos del sistema. Gobiernos, multinacionales y empresas forman las redes de este sistema de organización que también define nuestro sistema energético de hoy: la procedencia de las energías limpias, renovables o fósiles; sus lugares de origen; la compra-venta de las mismas, sus infraestructuras, su distribución y su consumo. Todo ello define hoy en España nuestra dependencia energética y nuestra sostenibilidad. Boa mistura rejuvinate mexican neighborhood with otomi art. Apr 24, 2014.
