Life Between Buildings

Life Between Buildings | Adaptive Cities | Scoop.it
'Life Between Buildings' asks the fundamental question "What has happened to life in cities?". It persistently investigates why life has disappeared from the cities, and it provides solutions on how to invite life back. If we want to create livable spaces we need to prioritize people, the human senses, and the human scale by planning cities in eye level.

Bikes vs. Cars - Is This a City or a Battlefield?

Bikes vs. Cars - Is This a City or a Battlefield? | Adaptive Cities | Scoop.it
Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Gertten is no stranger to controversy. In 2009 he made a documentary entitled “Bananas!” about Dole Foods’ mistreatment of its workers in Nicaragua. When he was subsequently sued by Dole, he followed it up with the 2011 documentary about the lawsuit, “Big Boys Gone Bananas!”

From the title of his latest documentary, “Bikes vs. Cars” one might assume (as I did), that Gertten is attempting to stir up controversy once again. But Gertten is adamant that, such as in the case of the previous two films, he is simply highlighting an issue. “A film gets controversial when somebody is attacking it,” he explains. “I’m telling a story about different ways to plan a city. You plan a city based on the car model or you plan it from a more human-scale model where the bike is more in the center. Is that controversial?”

The difference between the ‘sharing economy’ and true community | Adaptive Cities | Scoop.it
The “sharing economy” is just as often predatory as communal. Yet there are new opportunities for collaboration, sharing, and trust-building at the intersection of urban space and cyberspace.

Placemaking and the Human Scale City

Placemaking and the Human Scale City | Adaptive Cities | Scoop.it
We don’t like to define ourselves by what we are against. We aren’t against skyscrapers, development, luxury housing, or cars. We are for places. There is no one human scale, but by engaging in a placemaking process, we can find the scale that works for every community.
