Deserted Places: Sathorn Unique: Bangkok's ghost skyscraper

Deserted Places: Sathorn Unique: Bangkok's ghost skyscraper | City to the sky | Scoop.it

The construction of the Sathorn Unique tower in Bangkok began in the early '90s when the Thai economy was booming. The Asian Financial Crisis changed all that as the tower was abandoned in 1997, when the construction was 80% completed.

Toronto - from above - by Tom Ryaboi | City to the sky | Scoop.it

Toronto-based photographer Tom Ryaboi has produced spectacular work of his rooftopping escapades. The risks may be great, but the photographic results are simply visually arresting: small human figures framed against the backdrop of a concrete urban jungle, city lights all aglow.

Optimiser la taille des villes de demain

Optimiser la taille des villes de demain | City to the sky | Scoop.it

La ville du futur devrait viser une taille optimale pour assurer une meilleure utilisation de ses ressources plutôt qu'une vision de développement où tout converge vers le centre. Voilà l'une des pistes dégagées lors de deux discussions selon la formule du Café des sciences, qui se sont déroulées en France et au Québec sous le thème de l'homme dans la cité de demain. Vanessa Chenel, Pascal Newby et Sergii Tutashkonko, tous trois étudiants en cotutelle de l'Université de Sherbrooke et de l'Institut des nanotechnologies de Lyon, ont été appelés à piloter cet exercice qui a réuni deux panels de 11 participants, de chaque côté de l'Atlantique. La démarche fait l'objet d'une présentation au Congrès de l'Acfas, le 10 mai.
