The Urban Observatory: A New Way To Compare Cities, From The Creator Of TED

The Urban Observatory: A New Way To Compare Cities, From The Creator Of TED | mending the gap | Scoop.it
This giant installation and a website you can play with at home lets you compare the worlds urban centers side by side.

We live in a world of easily accessible maps; however, our map knowledge is limited by the fact that no two cities collect data the same way. Maps often aren’t drawn to the same scale, and until now, there hasn’t been a way to compare data on things like income, cost of living, water distribution, and power grids.

It’s a problem that has bugged Richard Saul Wurman, the creator of the TED conference (as well as an architect and graphic designer), for decades.

Wurman recently teamed up with Jon Kamen of Radical Media and Esri president Jack Dangermond to create an ambitious solution: the Urban Observatory, an immersive exhibit featuring standardized comparative data on over 16 cities. Zoom in on one city map and other cities will simultaneously zoom in at the same scale, making it possible to compare data on traffic density, vegetation, residential land use, and so on.

Sustainable Treehouse Community in the Costa Rican Jungle

Sustainable Treehouse Community in the Costa Rican Jungle | mending the gap | Scoop.it

Finca Bellavista is a community of interconnected sustainable treehouses set high in the trees of the Costa Rican jungle.


Simply one of these extraordinary sustainable treehouses would be amazing, but a whole network of interconnected treehouses  is indescribable.  Finca Bellavista is a community of tree dwellers living high in the foliage of the Costa Rican jungle.

Community founders, Mateo and Erica Hogan discovered the 62-acrea property on the edge of the Rio Bellavista River with the intention of creating an escape for themselves. Upon brainstorming options for affording the property, they settled on building a treehouse structure and inviting friends and others to join them, the result is the interconnected treehouse community we've shared below. Each structure is connected by bridges and zip lines, which they liken to "the Ewok village in Return of the Jedi."

Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 11, 2013 3:55 AM

The people at Organovo Holdings have teamed up with autodesk to design bioprinting machine. This machines main idea and fuction is to have the capability to print living tissues and hopefully move on to a more complex task such as organs. Although presentlyhe people at Orgnovo are able to create a slice of tissue, they require alot more hard work to reach their goal of being able to create a whole liver.Being able to recreate human body parts with the aid of 3d printing may not be so far off into the future. This would be music to the ears of people who have lost limbs or have been critically damaged in someway. This could also mean that we are able to sustain a elderly persons vital organs for longer period of time.

Columbia University and the Van Alen Institute Map How Our Brains Navigate the City

Columbia University and the Van Alen Institute Map How Our Brains Navigate the City | mending the gap | Scoop.it
The GSAPP’s Cloud Lab teams up with neurologists and the design institute to track how urban environments can make people relaxed or tense.

This spring, the Cloud Lab at Columbia University and the Van Alen Institute tackled the challenge of assessing and mapping how people respond to their environment as a part of Van Alen’s Elsewhere series on wellness in the city.

Instead of the typical focus groups, however, the researchers tracked brainwaves to gauge the mental activities of nearly 100 volunteers; using electroencephalography-based (EEG) measurements and the GPS tracking app, the research team collected more than 1 gigabyte of data over 200 walking sessions that, in theory, create a snapshot of a day-in-the-life of the neighborhood’s mental states. 

Presenting the data in a manner that retained its spatial qualities required the researchers to develop their own software for visualization. At a public follow-up presentation in May, the team presented the simplified data on a 3D map of DUMBO. Areas in cyan indicate places in which participants were in a more meditative and relaxed state, while areas in red indicate places where participants had a more focused or heightened sense of awareness...

Kalani Kirk Hausman's curator insight, April 19, 2013 2:59 PM

The concept of self-assembling structures actually predates 3D printing by some time, but the ability to print complex mixtures of materials using 3D printers makes it far easier to build structures that will transform when the proper energy is provided (hot water, electric current, etc). The so-called "4-D printed" parts generally mix two materials with dissimilar responses to stimuli like the application of heat - by varying which sides of the printed component are printed of one material or another, and the ability to vary the thickness and internal structure during fabrication, the end result can be a stick that becomes the MIT logo when warmed up. The same capabilities might one day provide simpler structures that could be placed on the moon and then unfold as a high-tech form of oragami to form habitation structures and other larger structured facilities using only the sun's heat.
