11 Principles of Placemaking

11 Principles of Placemaking
BeerBergman's insight:

technologies and society... you cannot not pass by design thinking and Placemaking, which seem particularly correlated. Excellent presentation, and here are the four first principles (read the rest for yourself :-) : 

***

  • 2. 1. The community is the expert. The people living and working in a place know what needs to be done and how to do it.
  • 3. 2. You are creating a place not a design. Successful neighborhood improvements rely less on blueprints and more on engaged local citizens and a solid management plan.
  • 4. 3. You can’t do it alone. The right partners will bring more resources, innovative ideas, and new sources of energy.
  • 5. 4. They’ll always say it can’t be done. When officials, business people, and neighbors say it won’t work, what they really mean is “We’ve never done it like this before.”

Want a smarter city? Then it's time to indulge in time travel

A new planning tool lets people vote on and see, via a virtual simulation, how planning proposals will affect their city. By Jay McGregor
BeerBergman's insight:

Smart cities, the concept of many planning architects and politiciens. How do we imagine the future of the cities, how will we live, act, react in highly populated environments with enormous constraints in all aspects of life in the city (space, time, actors, beliefs, political programs, ...).

Great article, emphasizing the need of the introduction of aspects of direct democracy in the technological process in order to picture a more accurate simulation.

Excerpt.

***

“Smart cities are great, but they’re generally aimed at grabbing data,” says Sengupta. Indeed, the very idea of a smart city is a linear one. What Sengupta is proposing is far more multi-dimensional.

“We take the smart city concept and improve on it, we call this a ‘stage 4 system’,” he explains. “We take all of that smart city data, throw in historical, sociological, geographical, cultural, ecological, industrial and academic data, alongside ground data and you have something very interesting. If, on top of that, you include public participation, ie the thoughts and ideas of citizens, you can build a live and kicking virtual replica city. The more data we have, the more accurate the simulation is and the more future proofed it is”.

BeerBergman's insight:

Now this is amazing! Data visualization of car sharing in Milan - what can it learn us about mobility patterns in the city? Excerpt.

***

"This project is intended as a small experiment with an Academic purpose. Our goal is to find out new way to explore, analyze and visualize mobility patterns in the city without any commercial or advertising purpose.
As we explain in the previous description we don't have the data about the routes of each car but we used a routing open service to estimate them. If you are interested about this topic please take a look at this project by Mappable that have been particularly inspiring for us."

Imagine if you could build a city that is shared.

Where people become micro-entrepreneurs,

and local mom and pops flourish once again.
