More than half of the world now lives in urban areas. In the U.S., urban dwellers make up 83 percent of the population, and it's growing every day. What does it mean to live in a city today? What are the challenges for cities going forward?

Urban Identity: Citizens and their Cities | This Big City | Sustainable Thinking | Candy Chang and Public Art | Scoop.it

Are you your city? Not the usual question one might ask, but in a way, we are all part of our cities, for without citizens they would not be what they are. But what role does the citizen play in shaping a city’s identity, and vice versa?

Little Libraries and Tactical Urbanism: Places [Design Observer]

Little Libraries and Tactical Urbanism: Places [Design Observer] | Candy Chang and Public Art | Scoop.it

 

retour sur l'émergence  des "mini, pop-up, guerilla and ad-hoc " bibliothèques dans les villes et le courant des Little Libraries...

 

De la co-construction au DIY, panorama de ces initiatives en cours aux US : que nous disent ces projets (et les communautés qui les portent) sur la bibliothèque istitutionnelle ?

c'est bien la question...

 

"these projects can't help but raise big and important questions regarding the protocols of access, the ideals of knowledge and rules of intellectual property, the health of public institutions, the viability of public space and public life, and the definitions of civic values(...) The little library movement is enabling us — sometimes unintentionally, sometimes not — to appreciate the distance that separates these ephemeral, marginal spaces and projects from the strong, stable public institutions that have been so central to our cities, and to our democracy. So perhaps the challenge now is to determine how these ever more prevalent "provisional, opportunistic and guerilla" projects can complement and strengthen our more traditional institutions and the cities they serve."

DOING IT DIFFERENTLY

It’s all about creativity and innovative entrepreneurship, pop ups, collaboration and the sometimes seemingly crazy. Doing it Differently looks at a range of creative and innovative solutions to the challenges of urban living. Creativity in all its forms is essential to the healthy evolution of urban environments, particularly when undergoing such rapid change.
