Ilia estudio interiorismo: Instalación en un parque Italiano. 4 Important Things to Consider When Designing Streets For People, Not Just Cars. 4 Important Things to Consider When Designing Streets For People, Not Just Cars Go to any medieval European city and you will see what streets looked like before the advent of the car: lovely, small narrow lanes, intimate, and undisputedly human-scale.
We have very few cities in the US where you can find streets like this. For the most part what you see is streets that have been designed with the car in mind—at a large scale for a fast speed. In my native San Francisco, we are making the streets safer for walking and biking by widening sidewalks, turning car lanes into bike lanes, and slowing down the cars. Bostanlı Footbridge & Sunset Lounge / steb. Bostanlı Footbridge & Sunset Lounge / steb From the architect.
Bostanlı Footbridge and Bostanlı Sunset Lounge have been designed by Studio Evren Başbuğ Architects as part of the 'Karşıkıyı' concept created for 'İzmirSea' coastal regeneration project. These two architectural interventions that are positioned in close proximity and in reference to each other, have generated a new, integrated coastal attraction together, where Bostanlı Creek flows into the bay, on a very special and unique spot due to the geometric form of the coastline, and the urban memory possessed. The site has become one of the favorite public attraction points in Karşıyaka, İzmir and has been embraced and visited by the residents from all around the city since the opening in July 2016. In alignment with the masterplan decisions of 'Karşıkıyı' concept, 'Bostanlı Footbridge', was proposed to connect two sides of Bostanlı Creek and thus to complete one of the missing pieces of the continuous coastal promenade.
LIMATOPÍAS: PLAZAS LÍQUIDAS PARA CIUDADES CALUROSAS. Este domingo 1 de Enero ocurrió algo inesperado en el espacio público del distrito de Chorrillos, en Lima: Ante el incesante calor, muchas personas optaron por meterse o mojarse los pies al "espejo de agua" que se encuentra en la berma central de la Costa Verde, algo que nos habla de una nueva forma de apropiación del espacio público en la capital, aunque ya había sucedido en menor medida en algunas piletas de agua.

"The Arrogance of Space": Mapping The Unfair Distribution of Public Space at Urban Intersections Unequal distribution of public space when it comes to pedestrians, cyclists and people driving cars is an issue that urban mobility specialist Mikael Colville-Andersen calls "The Arrogance of Space.
" The urban planner and founder of Copenhagenize believe that this term can be applied to streets that are dominated by traffic engineers from last century where streets were made primarily for cars. To illustrate his position, Mikael analyzed the amount of space allocated to each of these groups, in addition to "dead space” and space for buildings, in the streets of Calgary, Paris, and Tokyo by comparing each sector using different colors.
Take a look at the findings below. Paris. World's first non-rectangular football field built in thailand.

Espacios públicos amables para una ciudad informal, la experiencia de "Barrio Mío" en Lima. La ciudad de Lima, con 9 millones de habitantes, se compone en un 70% de construcciones informales, levantadas a través de la autogestión de las comunidades y sus futuros habitantes.
En una ciudad fragmentada -entre invasiones y barriadas-, se hace urgente generar lazos entre el estado, el sector privado y la sociedad civil, para reconstruir el escaso espacio público existente y llevar la arquitectura a aquellas zonas que lo requieran. Este es el desafío del Programa Barrio Mío de la Municipalidad de Lima, asesorando técnicamente a los vecinos organizados en zonas de laderas, para generar proyectos de recuperación y mejora de espacios públicos dentro de un sistema urbano integral.

WORKac‘s design for a 1-kilometer section of Hua Qiang Bei Road in Shenzhen was awarded first prize.
The design responds to the area’s growing commercial character which has unfortunately created traffic problems. For the proposal, the road becomes a series of “strategic interventions” where “five iconic lanterns”, (twisting bands of required program) create unique, visible destinations through a process of “urban acupuncture”. More images and more about the design after the break. The lanterns’ size makes them visible across the street, and they also provide shade during the day and glow with activity during the night. Each lantern contains special destination public programs such as an electronics museum, an urban information hub or a “figure eight” observation pavilion. Underground, new connective spaces provide public amenities and provide connections across the street and between four newly created metro lines. * h u e c o s – u r b a n o s ( 2 ) a l d o – v a n – e y c k : p a r q u e s – d e – j u e g o – e n – A m s t e r d a m.
