Over 50% of the world's population now lives in cities, so the conditions are ripe for improving, adjusting and rethinking the urban landscape and city life. The web flourishes with digital platforms for community discussion, since now it’s city dwellers - rather than governing executives - that actively take part in city-related decision-making...
Check out the following seven websites that harness the power, wisdom and knowledge of the crowds to cultivate smarter future cities.

The Evolution of Urban Planning in 10 Diagrams

The Evolution of Urban Planning in 10 Diagrams | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it
A new exhibit from the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association showcases the simple visualizations of complex ideas that have changed how we live.

The exhibition’s title – Grand Reductions – suggests a simple illustration’s power to encapsulate complex ideas. And for that reason the medium has always been suited to the city, an intricate organism that has been re-imagined (with satellite towns! in rural grids! in megaregions!) by generations of architects, planners and idealists.

In the urban context, diagrams can be powerful precisely because they make weighty questions of land use and design digestible in a single sweep of the eye. But as well-known plans, such as Le Corbusier’s, illustrates, they can also seductively oversimplify the problems of cities. These 10 diagrams have been tremendously influential – not always for the good...

Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog

Et si on partageait la valeur ? | weave Blog | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Changer de paradigme : passer de la « corporate social responsibility » à la « creation of shared value ».

 

Il y aurait d’un côté la valeur économique, et de l’autre les valeurs sociales, les deux n’entrant que très rarement en contact – sauf pour une lutte à mort.

C’est à cette vision binaire que s’est attaqué Michael Porter, un des professeurs de stratégie d’entreprise les plus reconnus dans le monde, en faisant paraitre, à l’étonnement général, en 2011 un article fondamental intitulé « Creating shared value » dans la Harvard Business Review. Il y faisait deux constats principaux.

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn?

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Are mistakes a part of the learning process? If they are, what does this say about our current education system? This post explores these ideas, asking the following questions and following each with a number of responses that explores each question in greater detail. The first section has two questions:

* Why are mistakes important to achieve engagement and learning?

* Why do we avoid mistakes in our current model?

The second section, Turning Mistakes into Learning Opportunities asks one question:

* How can we use learning errors to our advantage?

At the beginning of this post the author speaks of James Joyce, and also does so at the end where she states (referring to Joyce) "a true genius sees all learning as an opportunity to improve and discover. Errors are taken at will. In making mistakes, we can reach new heights and find our true genius." Will schools move in this direction?

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

The Harvard Graduate School of Design released its Ecological Urbanism app last month. The interactive app adapts content from the GSD book of the same name, which explores how designers can unite urbanism with environmentalism.

 

Combining data from around the world, the app “reveals and locates current practices, emerging trends, and opportunities for new initiatives” in regard to the future of cities.

 

A collaboration between the school and Second Story Interactive Studios,the app stems from the GSD’s Ecological Urbanism conference and dovetails with the duo’s ongoing efforts to explore sustainability in our cities of the future.

More than 100 participating architects and designers have provided content for the project, including such heavyweights as OMA, Rem Koolhaas, Kara Oehler, and Stefano Boeri. And the ever-evolving app allows designers and academics to add research and project updates as they happen...

Cities on Rails: Mobile Master Plan Turns Trains into Towns

Cities on Rails: Mobile Master Plan Turns Trains into Towns | Lateral Thinking Knowledge | Scoop.it

Modular thinking is brilliant and infectious, expanding and spreading from industrial-revolution technologies to three-dimensional printing... even to cities!

 

The Swedish architecture firm Jagnefalt Milton explores this issue in their daring and award-winning design of A Rolling Master Plan, conceived of as a way to utilize existing rail routes to shift entire towns – or even cities – worth of people and places.

 

Consider seasonal migrations, for instance: festivals, markets, concerts and other events that move throughout the year. What if they could take their architecture with them as they traveled? Then there are hotels, restaurants and other commercial functions that see demand change over time as well as by season. What if they could deploy rooms or eateries around a country at will? Sure, it is conceptual, but the real-life applications are astonishing once you start thinking about ways buildings could adapt if only they could move more freely...
