Use our methods DP0 (Design Project Zero) is a 90-minute (including debrief) fast-paced project though a full design cycle.

Should technology improve cities, or should cities improve technology? I was honoured this week to be invited to join the Academy of Urbanism, a society of professionals, academics and policy makers from a variety of backgrounds whose work is concerned in some way with cities.

With P2P Towards a Post-Capitalist Society * De Wereld Redden. Met P2P naar een post-kapitalische samenleving. Michel Bauwens en Jean Lievens. Houtekiet / Oikos, 2013 Please note: the original Flemish title for the book is “De Wereld Redden”, which translates to “Save the World” in English.

In the episode, “The Tower of David,” our pale-skinned hero is seen in custody, shaven-headed and gutshot, during a rendezvous on Venezuela’s jungle coastline, where one group of gun-wielding malandros (villains) hand him over to another. Brody, in a delirious state of writhing agony, lying in the back of a pickup, is driven to Caracas and into one of South America’s most apocalyptic urban fastnesses, the Tower of David. The Tower is a half-finished forty-five-story skyscraper-cum-ghetto that rises from the heart of downtown Caracas.

civic technology This is a liveblog of the talk "Understanding America's Interested Bystander: A Complicated Relationship with Civic Duty," by Kate Krontiris, John Webb, Charlotte Krontiris, and Chris Chapman. Blogged by @natematias and @erhardt, with illustrations by @willowbl00. What motivates everyday people in America to do things that are civic, and how do we engage the unengaged? Kate Krontiris and John Webb shared the results of a major study carried out by Google's Civic Innovation team today at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Resilience Alliance - Adaptive Cycle The model of the adaptive cycle was derived from the comparative study of the dynamics of ecosystems. It is meant to be a tool for thought. It focuses attention upon processes of destruction and reorganization, which are often neglected in favor of growth and conservation.
