Transport and Urban Planning for People

BY JULIE ANNE GENTER
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, people need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices. Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.

Thom White has been participating for a number of years and shares his insider knowledge of Black Rock City and the Burning Man Festival.

Pop your illustrations up!

BY IRYNA DONSKA
@ VOL 22 ON FEB 23, 2017

Ирина Донская: Превращаю скучные excel-таблицы в pop-up книги. Знаю, что самые «вкусные» издания следует искать в отделе до 10 лет; и как создается подобный magic.

Pop your illustrations up! O pop-up книгах и иллюстрациях для них. О том, как такие вещи изготовляют. В чем их волшебство. О работе на грани иллюстрации и инженерии.

In "The Sounds of the City" from PechaKucha Night New Westminster Vol. 16, Vincent Andrisani explains the important role that sounds play in our everyday lives. In his talk, Vincent argues that if we listen to the city with enough patience and curiosity, we can hear ideas for a more equitable approach to urban design and planning.
