Henderson Waves: A Pedestrian Bridge Envisioned for Singapore

Henderson Waves: A Pedestrian Bridge Envisioned for Singapore | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Arising from an international bridge design competition, Henderson Waves and other connections form part of a nine kilometer stretch of leisure destination that urban planners have envisioned for in the south of Singapore. This tallest pedestrian bridge and other elevated walkways creatively link up hills, parks and attractions to extend the green and recreational spaces available, bringing people closer to nature. 
Designed by RSP Architects Planners & Engineers Pte Ltd and IJP Corporation (UK), the 274 meter long bridge springs from a scenic location off Mount Faber to Telok Blangah. At 36 meters above Henderson Road, the bridge flows organically in seven wave spans, echoing the ridges’ profiles.

Organic farming may be outgrowing its ideals

Organic farming may be outgrowing its ideals | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Even as more Americans buy foods labeled organic, the products are moving away from a traditional emphasis on local growing and limited environmental strain.

 

Organic farming has changed for the years; it is not just the small private farms of yesteryear.  How have increasing consumer demand, economies of scale and expanding markets reshaped the geographic patterns of organic farming?  How is the transportation of agricultural products reconfiguring the networks?
