2nd City Zoning GIS and Agent-Based Modelling Colorado architecture students design rugged micro cabins Architecture students from the University of Colorado Denver have built a series of rustic dwellings for an outdoor education school in the Rocky Mountains (+ slideshow). Participating in a design-build programme, the students designed the cabins for the Colorado Outward Bound School – one of 40 schools around the globe run by Outward Bound, the nonprofit outdoor education organisation that focuses on expeditionary learning. The Colorado Outward Bound Micro Cabins – each measuring between 140 and 200 square feet (13 to 18 square metres) – were created to serve as "micro dormitories". There are 14 dwellings in total, and they were constructed on-site in three weeks. Made of metal and wood, the cabins are situated on a steep hillside in a lodgepole pine forest near Leadville, a small town in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Elevated several feet off the ground, the dwellings were designed to have a low environmental impact. Each cabin sleeps two to three occupants. Project credits:

ElementR | R pour les sciences humaines et sociales digital urban | modelling, visualising, sensing and visualising urban environments untitled Sous nous, le refuge Bastien Daret A un moment où l’espace s’appréhende par le biais d’un regard extra-humain, le cinéma américain propose une mise en image des urbanités souterraines comme espaces-refuges problématiques et interroge la porosité de la frontière entre dessus et dessous. « I come from… like you », dit le Pingouin au personnage incarné par Christopher Walken dans Batman, le défi (Tim Burton, 1991). Batcave de Batman, le défi (Tim Burton, 1991) Pour le Batman incarné par Christian Bale dans la trilogie de Christopher Nolan, l’enjeu du refuge souterrain est plus pragmatique. Echapper au regard : un enjeu contemporain Pour le méchant de films d’action contemporains aussi, rien de tel que le souterrain pour échapper au point de vue zénithal, à cette cartographie intempestive qui menace de mettre à mal chacun de ses plans. En tant que défi au regard humain, ce point de vue zénithal a intrigué, nourri et irrigué le cinéma contemporain. La ville sous la ville : porosités d’un imaginaire analogique
