10 Principles for Transport in Urban Life : My City : Our Cities Ourselves

10 Principles for Transport in Urban Life : My City : Our Cities Ourselves | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

Cities produce more than 70 percent of the world’s carbon emissions, and transport is one of the largest contributors. Therefore, getting urban transport right is crucial to the health of our cities and our planet.

 

Our Cities Ourselves, a project of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, attempts to address these issues and promote a vision for our cities that is more livable, equitable, and sustainable. By highlighting international best practices and successful case studies, OCO seeks to facilitate an exchange of ideas on present urban conditions, key challenges, and possible solutions to realize our vision for better cities.

 

The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy works with cities worldwide to bring about sustainable transport solutions that cut greenhouse gas emissions, reduce poverty, and improve the quality of urban life.

Yokohama International Port Terminal | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it
Seen as an extension of the urban ground rather than a pier, the terminal becomes an uninterrupted and multi-directional urban space. Not to mention the fact that this layout is perfect for coping with the seismic problems Japan often faces.

AA Landscape Urbanism "Social Waterscapes" 2011-12

"The Social Waterscapes Project investigates the role of water infrastructures within the city as a medium to improve social life. In the context of Chinese rapid urbanisation, we explore the potential of water as an instrument of modernisation. [...] The Masterplan aims to integrate the existing  urban pattern of the villages, recognizing and establishing them as cores of the cultural identity of the new city. [...] The relationship between water and people becomes the crucial driver for all the decisions in designing the city."

 

Social waterscapes is the design thesis of Jaime Traspaderne, Ana Abram and Costanza Madricardo at the Architectural Association within the Landscape Urbanism Programme 2011/2012.
