Intelligent Cities

Intelligent Cities | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

How do we make decisions about where to live, how to get around, what places we value? If we believe that more and better information leads to better, sustainable decisions, where do we get our information? With contributions from experts in research, design, and the technology industry, Intelligent Cities offers an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of urban development.

 

This wide-ranging and readable book draws on the museum’s year-long Intelligent Cities initiative, an exploration of how data and information technology impact the way cities look, feel, and function. The book features original and award winning infographics commissioned by the museum and provides a context for today's issues in the history of technology and urban form, the telephone, the computer, mass media, and their impacts on human settlement and society.

 

Publisher: The National Building Museum

Lieux et modèles : l'exemple des villes de fondation au XXe siècle

Lieux et modèles : l'exemple des villes de fondation au XXe siècle | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Cette thèse se propose d'étudier le lien existant entre les lieux et les sites naturels d'une part, les modèles de cité de l'autre. Le contexte analysé est celui des villes de fondation, c'est-à-dire des villes planifiées et créées en un temps court, totalement constituées, résultant de modèles formels complets et le plus souvent engendrées par un pouvoir centralisé ou une décision concentrée. Dans l'histoire des villes, on peut dire que les villes de fondation réalisées les plus importantes sont les villes idéales grecques, les villes romaines, les villes royales, les villes coloniales européennes, les villes de l'industrie. Au XXe siècle les occasions de créer des ensembles urbains se raréfient au profit de l'extension. Toutefois plusieurs pays ont procédé à des créations des villes de tertiaire : le Brésil avec Brasilia, l'Inde avec Chandigarh et Navi Mumbai (New Bombay), la Chine avec Shenzhen, la Grande-Bretagne avec les New Towns comme c'est le cas de Milton Keynes, la France avec les Villes Nouvelles, dont Marne-la-Vallée ou encore La Grande-Motte.

Infographics of the Day: How Segregated Is Your City? | Co.Design

Infographics of the Day: How Segregated Is Your City? | Co.Design | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Every city is integrated (and segregated) in unique ways.

Recently, cartographer Bill Rankin produced an astounding map of Chicago, which managed to show the city's areas of racial integration.

Eric Fischer saw those maps, and took it upon himself to create similar ones for the top 40 cities in the United States. Fisher used a straight forward method borrowed from Rankin: Using U.S. Census data from 2000, he created a map where one dot equals 25 people. The dots are then color-coded based on race: White is pink; Black is blue; Hispanic is orange, and Asian is green.

The results for various cities are fascinating: Just like every city is different, every city is integrated (or segregated) in different ways.

༄ NUTOPIA 2 [sergio falcone & co.]: Gasping from out the Shallows: Reflections on revolution in the early twenty-first century

༄ NUTOPIA 2 [sergio falcone & co.]: Gasping from out the Shallows: Reflections on revolution in the early twenty-first century | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Human beings are not fully conscious of their real lives. Groping in the dark, overwhelmed by the consequences of their acts, at every moment groups and individuals find themselves faced with outcomes they had not intended […] What should be abolished continues, and we continue to wear away with it. We are engulfed. Separated from each other. The years pass and we haven’t changed anything.
(Guy Debord, On the Passage of a Few Persons Through a Rather Brief Unity of Time, 1959)

 

We have invented nothing. We adapt ourselves, with a few variations, into the network of possible itineraries. We get used to it, it seems.
(Guy Debord, Critique of Separation, 1961)

 

If it seems somewhat absurd to talk of revolution, this is obviously because the organized revolutionary movement has long since disappeared from the modern countries where the possibilities of a decisive social transformation are concentrated. But all the alternatives are even more absurd, since they imply accepting the existing order in one way or another.
(Internationale Situationniste #6, 1961)

Inde: Dharavi, le bidonville qui vaut des millions

Inde: Dharavi, le bidonville qui vaut des millions | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Vu de haut, Dharavi n’est qu’un interminable alignement anarchique de petites maisons aux toits en tôle. Mais à hauteur d’homme, les ruelles étroites de ce bidonville regorgent d’une activité débordante et inépuisable : depuis la confection textile ou de poterie en passant par le recyclage du plastique de Bombay, le décor vivant du film Slumdog Millionnaire est une gigantesque usine informelle, qui génère une activité d’environ 500 millions d’euros par an. Mais ce modèle unique pourrait bientôt prendre fin, rattrapé par l’expansion d’une ville en manque d’espace, et un plan de réaménagement pharaonique.

Salt Building / Acton Ostry Architects

The Salt Building is an iconic, historic landmark centrally located in the Southeast False Creek sustainable neighbourhood of Vancouver. The former waterfront structure embodies the legacy of the rich working past of the industrial area that once bristled with ship builders, steel fabricators and sawmills. Constructed in the 1930’s, the Salt Building was originally a refinery for sea salt shipped up from San Francisco.
