+ Pool : piscines flottantes qui filtrent la pollution dans New York

+ Pool : piscines flottantes qui filtrent la pollution dans New York | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

+ Pool est un projet complètement insolite, lancé en 2010 par un groupe de new-yorkais, qui consiste à construire dans la baie de la ville 4 piscines rectangulaires, qui formeraient une croix. Ce projet est porté par les citoyens grâce à une collecte crowdfunding.

Conçue comme des passoires géantes, chaque bassin filtrerait l’eau de la rivière Hudson et la traiterait pour la rendre conforme à la baignade.

Town Square Initiative: New York - Urban Planning and Design Concepts

Town Square Initiative: New York - Urban Planning and Design Concepts | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

The Town Square Initiative is a yearlong volunteer effort in which Gensler designers set out to unearth and re-imagine unexpected open space in cities around the globe. All 43 Gensler offices were invited to participate in the conceptual project, in which we challenged our designers to identify open space in the city and reimagine it as a town square.

10 High-Tech, Green City Solutions for Beating the Heat

10 High-Tech, Green City Solutions for Beating the Heat | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

From a solar mansion in China to a floating farm in New York, green buildings are sprouting up in cities around the world. Among their many benefits are curbing fossil-fuel use and reducing the urban heat island effect.


The Science Barge is a floating environmental education classroom and greenhouse on the Hudson River in New York. Fueled by solar power, wind, and biofuels, the barge, which was built in 2007, has zero carbon emissions.

Vegetables are grown hydroponically in an effort to preserve natural resources and adapt to urban environments, where healthy soil, or soil at all, is hard to come by. Rainwater and treated river water are used for irrigation.

The owner of the barge—New York Sun Works—designed it as a prototype for closed-loop and self-sufficient rooftop gardens in urban areas.

If the waters rise we could move those in places like New Orleans to floating cities?  or maybe we should move some of the policitians there and cut them loose?

Comment Isaac Asimov voyait 2014 en 1964 - Framablog

Comment Isaac Asimov voyait 2014 en 1964 - Framablog | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

En 1964, le célèbre écrivain de science-fiction Isaac Asimov visitait l’Exposition Universelle de New York. Il se mit alors à imaginer, dans l’article traduit ci-dessous, ce qu’il pourrait bien advenir dans 50 ans, c’est-à-dire en 2014.

Force est de constater que bon nombre de ses hypothèses étaient prémonitoires…

Les logements du futur

Les logements du futur | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Des logements aussi indépendants qu’un pavillon et aussi économes en espace qu’un collectif, tout en restant peu chers. C’est le défi relevé par ces projets qui seront construits.

Maisons perchées sur les toits, maisons jardins et maisons de villages superposées dans des petits collectifs urbains, maisons jumelées en duplex ou triplex, assemblage de plots ressemblant à un jeu de construction ou résidence plus traditionnelle mais dont la souplesse, la modularité et l’adaptabilité sont individualisées pour chaque foyer. Voici quelques-unes des pistes explorées par les professionnels de la construction pour les années à venir. Et voici peut-être les logements toulousains du futur.
