Common Ground in a Liquid City: Essays in Defense of an Urban Future :: AK Press | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

If we want to preserve what's still left of the natural world, we need to stop using so much of it. And cities are the best chance we have left for a sustainable future ... but only if they remain vibrant, dynamic spaces that are unfolded by millions of people working together—and not by master plans and planners. What will it take to make our cities truly sustainable?

 

In a world where the flow of money and jobs and people is largely determined by the whims of global capital, Matt Hern's Common Ground in a Liquid Cit rey is afreshingly down-to-earth look at the importance of place in the urban future.

Alex Steffen: The shareable future of cities | Video on TED.com

TED Talk: How can cities help save the future? Alex Steffen shows some cool neighborhood-based green projects that expand our access to things we want and need -- while reducing the time we spend in cars. Interesting concepts: by not stealing the future, selling it now and calling it GDP, says he. Cool concepts, being implemented already right now.

Performatism, a post-postmodern architecture style in an integral age

Performatism, a post-postmodern architecture style in an integral age | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Integral architecture is not simply about applying a single integrally informed methodology to new, unconstructed “Integral Buildings,” (however important that practice perhaps is), but is something already in our midst. We have only to recognize its features, bring our awareness to them, construct attempts at definitions, and then play with the novelty until something new emerges.

Landscape+Urbanism: Black Rock City

Landscape+Urbanism: Black Rock City | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Burning Man: An interesting article making some strange connections between the land of free spiritedness that is Burning Man, specifically the arrangement of the temporary settlement 'Black Rock City' with the ideology of New Urbanism. I can't think of two uniquely different mind-sets and approaches, so find the connection to be somewhat comical - but am keeping an open mind. So read for yourself... and determine perhaps if that next vacant town square surrounded by walk-up townhouses would benefit from an iconic super human sculptural icon that regularly is set aflame.

Pattern language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pattern language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

A pattern language, a term coined by architect Christopher Alexander, is a structured method of describing good design practices within a field of expertise. Advocates of this design approach claim that ordinary people of ordinary intelligence can use it to successfully solve very large, complex design problems. Like all languages, a pattern language has vocabulary, syntax, and grammar. The odd part is that the language is applied to some complex activity other than communication
