The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight

@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"The Belt Line … will be the next phase in Buffalo’s sustainable development."

In The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 16, urbanist and preservationist, Chris Hawley, presents the Belt Line -- one of the most conspicuous and least-known features of Buffalo, NY. Each day, trains go by along it and people drive underneath and over it. It is the "third strand" in Buffalo's DNA, as important to the city's physical and economic geography as Joseph Ellicott's radial and grid plan and Frederick Law Olmsted's park and parkway system; as consequential to the city's development as the Erie Canal and Interstate Highway System.

The Belt Line was opened in 1883, with segments dating back to 1836. The rail line is 15 miles long, forming a continuous loop through Buffaloʼs downtown as well as the prominent industrial loft clusters that it helped to create. Today, the Belt Line's 12 million square feet of largely vacant or underutilized industrial space is the city's next frontier for sustainable development. Factory buildings are being recycled as mixed-use developments. These former industrial areas are becoming walkable centers again.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, July 27th, 2016.

Sustainable Fashion

@ VOL 50 ON SEP 04, 2018

I started researching the brands I support and the garments in my wardrobe, and realised i need to become a Conscious Consumer. My wardrobe was bursting at the seems and I was funding fast fashion. More research led me to the Rana Plaza Collapse and the conditions the factory workers worked in which made me more aware of why I need to know who made my clothes. #WhoMadeMyClothes is now a global movement through the Fashion Revolution which was started after the Rana Plaza collapse. I have just done two courses on sustainable fashion, and would also like to touch on my findings when i researched a pair of Zara jeans in my wardrobe. Attached are sample slides with talking points & images.
