As our world changes, so must smart cities. Data and solutions alike are more likely to come from citizens than developers as societies evolve.

Personal Branding Is Much More Than Self-Marketing

Personal Branding Is Much More Than Self-Marketing | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
I hate the term personal branding. It's one of those catchphrases that by now has been written about ad infinitum. Much of what's out there tends to carry the same message- to the point that there's even a wikipedia article on it. Personal branding is equated with the term "self-packaging" with the goal of marketing…

Thierry Curty's curator insight, March 5, 2:03 PM
Et après on viendra nous parler de la France qui décline. Des cerveaux qui s'en vont, et ragnagna et ragnagna... 

La réalité est que la France est au top dans quasiment tous les secteurs, y compris et c'est regrettable, le french bashing. Si elle n'avait pas à combattre sa population, elle serait peut-être bien autre chose que telle qu'elle est perçue. 

Le français est un peu con, c'est ça son problème, jamais l'allemand ou l'anglais n'aurait l'idée d'agir contre son pays comme le fait le français moyen.

Paris's Grand Plans to Make a Tourist HOTspot More Appealing to Locals

Paris's Grand Plans to Make a Tourist HOTspot More Appealing to Locals | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
Given its incredible history, the Île de la Cité really should be more enticing than it is. An island in the heart of Paris that splits the river Seine like an elaborate galleon blown upstream, it has been inhabited for over 2,000 years. It houses two of Europe’s most beautiful churches—Notre Dame Cathedral and the Sainte Chapelle—one of the world’s best preserved renaissance bridges, and the former prison of Marie Antoinette. Despite this sheer tonnage of beauty and memory, the island still retains a perplexingly arid atmosphere, with little street life beyond the tourists in transit.

That could now be set to change. As the final gesture of his term, France’s President François Hollande has made a revamp of the Île de la Cité one of his key legacy projects. The plan, by architect Dominique Perrault, is detailed in an exhibition that opened at the Conciergerie last week. Still at the conceptual stage, it would see the island effectively redesigned to make it more vibrant and pedestrian friendly, giving visitors more things to see there, and, above all, providing a host of new facilities that would make the place more attractive to ordinary Parisians.

A great idea that could be negated by IoT vulnerabilities to hacking and cybersecurity issues. Too much dependence on digital technology could have serious social consequences if control systems are exploited by hackers.

Israel Proves the Desalination Era Is Here

Israel Proves the Desalination Era Is Here | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
One of the driest countries on Earth now makes more freshwater than it needs

 

Driven by necessity, Israel is learning to squeeze more out of a drop of water than any country on Earth; researchers have pioneered new techniques in drip irrigation, water treatment and desalination. “The Middle East is drying up,” says Osnat Gillor, a professor at the Zuckerberg Institute who studies the use of recycled wastewater on crops. “The only country that isn’t suffering acute water stress is Israel.” That water stress has been a major factor in the turmoil tearing apart the Middle East, but Bar-Zeev believes that Israel’s solutions can help its parched neighbors, too — and in the process, bring together old enemies in common cause.

6 REASONS Cities Are Located Where They Are

6 REASONS Cities Are Located Where They Are | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
Frank Lloyd Wright once described cities as both ‘our glory and our menace’. With more than half of the world’s population now living in cities, architects are becoming increasingly interested in their origins. Many fields of historical, geographical, and spatial research are devoted to exploring the evolution of cities, revealing a set of similarities across the globe. In a recent video, Wendover Productions described a common set of characteristics linking some of our largest cities, six of which we have outlined below.

The PARAMETRIC Process Behind the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie's Auditorium

The PARAMETRIC Process Behind the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie's Auditorium | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
Of all its bells and whistles, the focal point of Herzog and de Meuron’s latest successful endeavor, the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, is arguably the central auditorium, as explored in this new article by WIRED. An incredible example of the possibilities of parametric design, the hall is comprised of 10,000 individual acoustic panels that line the walls, ceilings, railings and balconies. Each of the panels consists of one million “cells” of varying dimensions, created to help define the sound within the space.

In order to accomplish this feat, Herzog and de Meuron collaborated with renowned acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, and Benjamin Koren of One to One, who created the algorithm responsible for the 10,000 unique panels. “That’s the power of parametric design,” said Koren. “Once all of that is in place, I hit play and it creates a million cells, all different and all based on these parameters. I have 100 percent control over setting up the algorithm, and then I have no more control.”
