Double tap if you agree with Kenneth Boulding "It is the adaptable, not the well-adapted who survive." #theglobalgridquotes
I’ve developed a slight obsession with construction since moving to London. It’s so ever-present. I can’t ignore it. Every picture I take there’s a crane looming in the distance, a fluoro jacket, a barrier or a machine... changing the face and feel of the city day by day. It also makes me think about who gets built into the city and who gets built out. Who is all this building for? _ _ _ #construction #constructinglondon #building #constructionworker #fluorescent #fluoro #change #changingcity #cityscape #crane #london #igerslondon #londonphoto #londonphotographer #urbanphotography #urban #streetphotography #street #streetscape #buildinglondon #cityplanning #citylife
Hurricane Harvey, which hit Houston is late August, is reportedly one of the costliest storms when it comes to the damage. The hurricane brought unprecedented rain to the area, and more storms are brewing in the Atlantic this week. As storms pic up, the areas impacted can be a lesson for all policymakers, planners, engineers, developers, and the public when it comes to land planning and development. In an era of unprecedented weather events, infrastructure must be adaptable, resilient, and equitable.

For the last photo, we have a scene from a canal on Seagull Island【海鸥岛】. The island is very far from the central city but still close enough to the long reach of Metro Line 4 to be accessible. It features some of the expanses of rural farmland and water villages that are incorporated into Guangzhou city. Seagull Island is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the sprawling urban core and a chance to see pastoral life along with the unique architecture and urban design of water villages. Thanks for following along and hope you enjoyed the photos of this fantastic city! #wayfindingguideGuangzhou Photo by @yoeltaomas

I really like pedestrian christmas streets. No cars, but people in the streets, smiling to other strangers! :) Density creates closeness. #cityplanning

So, there was a day when I really wanted a drawing from @ickle.jane and she said lets exchange art! I was like 🤔 what I am gonna do if I do not draw. Probably something I enjoy, potentially a city planning, an utopian one. So let me introduce a flying city with quite a standard city layout with a business centre and banks being on one side, central park with an art museum in the middle and a residential area on the other side. Separate cloud islands represent various get aways, like tropical chillax, a Finnish style fishing and sauna or a winter skiing retreat. There is also a cats island and a school that is connected to the residential quarters, because schools should be fun. There is also space inside the flying city...but this could be anything...I believe the inside part could be changed and adapted depending on the circumstances, whether is a concert hall, a shelter or just separately hired spaces. 🤗 Drawn on A3. . . #art #artistic #cityplanning #city #utopian #utopiancity #estate #drawing #sketch #design #architecture #architectural #utopianarchitecture #a3 #ink #watercolor #creative #inspiration
IDEA 443/365. IN THE SUBURBS THE SQUARE WORKS AS A AGORA (A CENTRIPETE TOOL THAT CALLS THE PEOPLE). . Port-au-Prince (Haiti), Carrefour-Feuilles [Tapis Rouge public space] Tapis Rouge is one of several public spaces in Carrefour-Feuilles, Haiti, built under program “A better life in my neighbourhood” in Haitian Creole. The program aims to construct multifunctional spaces that facilitate and promote social cohesion through an inclusive approach. The design itself is inherently community-oriented and understands public space as an anthropological ground from which identity and social relations grow. The program and the architectural design have been established directly with the community. An open-air amphitheatre, intended for community gathering, marks the centre of the space.

COMING SOON: Google's first ever smart city is coming to Toronto's Queens Quay East region.⠀ ⠀ Sidewalk, a subsidiary of Google and Alphabet Inc, have announced their plans to start building a "smart city within a city" on Toronto's waterfront. Stretching from just east of Jarvis to just past parliament, the new region dubbed "quayside" might turn into the world's first smart city. ⠀ ⠀ Here are some proposed ideas put forth by Google:⠀ ⠀ 1. Self-driving taxi-robots that pick you up the same way an Uber cab would⠀ 2. Introduction of self-driving cars that can be rented the same way you rent a zipcar.⠀ 3. Underground garbage collection eliminating the need for garbage trucks⠀ 4. Modular homes that can be built on top of each other (Imagine adding a block on top of another block, sort of like Lego)⠀ 5. Sidewalks that offer heating or windshields, increasing outdoor time by as much as 200%⠀ 6. Venice style residences and canals, homes built with canals in between, digital boat rentals for moving around the canals⠀ 7. A smart city that collects pedestrian information and uses it to improve the livability of the city.⠀ 8. Augmented reality built into the digital layer of the neighborhood, such that a firefighter can ⠀ ⠀ Despite all the good news, some are rightfully worried about privacy issues that such a project can raise. How will this information be stored? Who will have access to it? Will the program run only on anonymous meta-data or will personal information be collected about individuals? ⠀ ⠀ We encourage residents of this neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods to be involved in the planning and execution of this one of a kind imitative. We need not fear progress and technology so long as our personal liberties remain intact. ⠀ ⠀ What are your thoughts about Sidewalk Toronto? Let us know in the comments below and get the conversation going.
✨Tip of the Day✨ Many people don’t think about checking in with their local government before selling their home. It is important to make contact with the building department before listing to ensure that they have accurate information about your property. Most towns keep records of buildings and permits. The lead building inspector is given the job of making certain any changes meet current codes and that work is done by licensed contractors. When you are in the process of selling, the buyer will go to the building department to do their due diligence. If an open permit exists or if there is no record of a current renovation project, the buyer may be leery of moving forward with the purchase. #ConnieBurkeProperties #RealEstate #BuildingInspection

Bicycles parked on a stone tile street in the Yuexiu District【越秀区】the ancient center of Guangzhou. Although there is minimal dedicated infrastructure for bicycles in Guangzhou compared to cities like Beijing, that does not prevent them from being ubiquitous in every corner of the city. With the advent of shared bike companies such as Mobike and Ofo, the bicycle has seen an urban renaissance in China. #wayfindingguideGuangzhou Photo by @yoeltaomas
