Removing Streets Is The Only Way To Reclaim Open Space In Cities

Removing Streets Is The Only Way To Reclaim Open Space In Cities | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Cities across the world have started turning their attention to the acres of land allocated to roads and the almighty car. The Reclaim the Streets and Critical Mass movements illustrate the pressure building in communities across the world for a better use of the valuable space now dedicated to streets. Anarchists asked a basic question: Why don’t streets belong to people, not cars? Municipalities listened and are taking initiatives to find a better balance.

Michael Hansmeyer: Building unimaginable shapes

"Inspired by cell division, Michael Hansmeyer writes algorithms that design outrageously fascinating shapes and forms with millions of facets. No person could draft them by hand, but they're buildable -- and they could revolutionize the way we think of architectural form.
Michael Hansmeyer is an architect and programmer who explores the use of algorithms and computation to generate architectural form."

The Top 6 Green Buildings at the 2012 London Olympics

The Top 6 Green Buildings at the 2012 London Olympics | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

The 2012 London Olympics could very well be the most sustainable Summer Games on record...

No Olympic organizers have worked harder to make this massive event more environmentally responsible than London 2012. That commitment has carried over to many of the Games’ buildings, including the main Olympic Stadium, the lightest ever built. The 80,000 seat stadium boasts a bevy of sustainable construction features, including rainwater harvesting, a fabric roof and interesting choices in recycled materials. With no disrespect to the Game’s focal point, we here at Inhabitat have come up with what we believe are the six greenest buildings built for the 2012 London Olympics.

NASA - Satellites See Unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Melt

NASA - Satellites See Unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Melt | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

For several days this month, Greenland's surface ice cover melted over a larger area than at any time in more than 30 years of satellite observations. Nearly the entire ice cover of Greenland, from its thin, low-lying coastal edges to its two-mile-thick center, experienced some degree of melting at its surface, according to measurements from three independent satellites analyzed by NASA and university scientists.

On average in the summer, about half of the surface of Greenland's ice sheet naturally melts. At high elevations, most of that melt water quickly refreezes in place. Near the coast, some of the melt water is retained by the ice sheet and the rest is lost to the ocean. But this year the extent of ice melting at or near the surface jumped dramatically. According to satellite data, an estimated 97 percent of the ice sheet surface thawed at some point in mid-July.

Researchers have not yet determined whether this extensive melt event will affect the overall volume of ice loss this summer and contribute to sea level rise.

"The Greenland ice sheet is a vast area with a varied history of change. This event, combined with other natural but uncommon phenomena, such as the large calving event last week on Petermann Glacier, are part of a complex story," said Tom Wagner, NASA's cryosphere program manager in Washington. "Satellite observations are helping us understand how events like these may relate to one another as well as to the broader climate system."

NATURE urbaine en projets. Vers une nouvelle alliance entre nature et ville

NATURE urbaine en projets. Vers une nouvelle alliance entre nature et ville | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Intitulé « Nature urbaine en projets », le présent colloque a pour ambition de mieux comprendre et connaître ce qu’il en est du devenir de la ville –sa nature- dès lors qu’elle s’attache à la nature. Car s'il faut bien envisager l’avenir des formes urbaines naturelles –promenades plantées, parcs, jardins- héritées de l’histoire, c’est à l’aune d’une demande sociale de nature, elle-même fluctuante, que cela doit être fait. Et s’il faut dès lors appréhender le devenir des modèles de nature auxquels se réfèrent les architectes, les paysagistes et les urbanistes qui aménagent nos villes en espaces naturels, il convient tout autant d’interroger les mutations du « projet » en tant qu’outil de conception auquel ces professionnels ont recours. Il n’est pas jusque la question de l’ « innovation » architecturale, paysagère et urbanistique qui n’implique la notion de dépassement du présent inhérente aux projets de nature urbaine. Une nouvelle alliance entre nature et ville se dessinerait-elle ?
