Concentric Zones of Building Age in Chicago

Concentric Zones of Building Age in Chicago | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

"Many of the original and innovative contributions to the field of urban sociology came out of the University of Chicago in the early 20th Century. Influenced by the natural sciences, in particular evolutionary biology, members of the Chicago School forwarded an ecological approach to sociology emphasizing the interaction between human behavior, social structures and the built environment. In their view, competition over scarce resources, particularly land, led to the spatial differentiation of urban areas into zones of similar use and similar social groups.

Two of the major proponents of urban ecology were Ernest Burgess and Robert E. Park, professors at the University of Chicago, who together in 1925 published a book entitled The City." 

 

Many students struggle with models when there isn't a corresponding example.  The Concentric Zone Model and Chicago are a great marriage.

Timelapse - The City Limits

*UPDATE May 10th: Here's a video interview that I did this morning for MSNBC : http://on.msnbc.com/juqWHz ---------- I shot this timelapse montage from late 2010 through early 2011. One year in the making.

 

With the intention of showing the duality between city and nature the timelapse, Dominic Boudreault created a beautiful montage of the urban landscape that is a thought-provoking piece. Locations include Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, New York and Chicago.

Interactive panoramic view of Paris

Interactive panoramic view of Paris | Nuevas Geografías | Scoop.it

From the Eiffel Tower, you can pan and zoom to see the whole city.  A fantastic 'hook' for urban geography.  Paris has been the model for so many urban restructuring projects, that this would work nicely as grist for discuss centering on ideas of urbanism (and it's just stunningly gorgeous).  Enjoy playing this this.
