In this talk inspired by his City Arcadia micro-commission, Artist and Poet Adam Steiner considers how, as an artist, you can make an Arcadia of Coventry. He posits the theory that this might be your duty as an artist, but also perhaps as a citizen. Describing his process and project proposals, Adam offers us a way to look differently at the city.
University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism
BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.
Child-Friendly in the City
"Children are part of our cities. If our cities aren't designed for children, then they're not meant for citizens. If they're not meant for citizens, they're not cities."
In "Child-Friendly in the City" from PechaKucha Night Edmonton Vol.25, Ian Smith speaks to a demographic whose voices often go unheard in urban decision-making: children. In Ian's presentation, he challenges us to view our spaces through the eyes of the younger generation while acknowledging that we all have a part to play in building child-friendly cities.
Pop Up Urbanism – Black Rock City
BY THOM WHITE

What happens when some friends start having a Summer solstice bonfire on the beach? Well, if you keep it up long enough you end up building the 3rd largest city in Nevada for 70,000 radical self-expressionists for one week a year, and then erasing all trace of it until the next solstice. Thom White has been participating for a number of years and shares his insider knowledge of Black Rock City and the Burning Man Festival.
