Let's Build a City

BY VIRGIL IERUBINO
@ VOL 6 ON SEP 13, 2016

Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 11th, 2017.

Being an Independent Farmer in Central Texas, Wooden Buildings in Ostrava, and a Teaser Video from PKN Trnava

Presentations Linda Perez was born and raised in San Antonio. Over the course of her life, she has cleaned hominid fossils and taught secondary school in Kenya, done research at Harvard University and conducted a health care survey in the Andes Mountains, helped initiate sustainable agriculture and rural businesses in Zambia and assisted in HIV/AIDS awareness & prevention in Swaziland. Since 1993, she has overseen the development of a herd of Beefmaster cattle on her 300-acre L&M Ranch, 40 minutes south of San Antonio. Her presentation (from PKN San Antonio Vol. 6) focuses on her life as an independent, organic farmer in the heart of Texas. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ostrava Vol. 8) contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students. The buildings are inspired by traditional dwellings found in many parts of the world, that are friendly to the environment and, for the most part, very cheap. Martin also points out the bureaucratic system that affects Czech building policies. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog comes in the form of a trio of posters for the upcoming PKN that's set to happen on October 26 in Orlando -- although V6 appears on the poster, this is in fact the series' Vol. 7, and you'll find the full list of presenters on the official event page. Video Today we have a great video teaser to share for the upcoming PKN Trnava Vol. 5, which will be part of the Grape Festival, one of the biggest music festivals in Slovakia.   Calendar Today (August 22) you can catch the following two events: PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8. Tomorrow, you have the following three PKNs to choose from: PKN Edinburgh Vol. 19, PKN San Antonio Vol. 7, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 7.

The resulting "people" she creates have not only starred in their own shows, but have also been made to interact with other famous pieces. Ixchel Lechuga's presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Xalapa Vol. 8) is all about why the city center can and should produce agriculture products.

Has new urbanism regenerated the way we are and the way we behave? Are we really getting revitalized? What is the new URBANITAS? Architects, designers and fashion designers from Turkey and the Netherlands will present their cases around the theme of "Urban Transformation." Photos The photo above is from this photo gallery [Picasa] for last July's PKN Kyiv Vol. 8. Here's also a report on the event (Google translated).

The Gentleman Honey Farmer

Pecha Kucha Volume 1 - Creating A Healthy City Urban beekeeping, along with other urban agriculture practices, has been on the rise in recent years. Drastic declines in honey bee populations over the last decade have severe economic and environmental implications. Honey bee colonies have demonstrated higher survival rates in urban settings. Many world-class cities have adopted policies that allow for reasonable beekeeping practices, while other municipalities maintain policies that are detrimental to the survival of a creature whose existence is critical to a healthy ecosystem. This presentation aims to provide a general overview of urban beekeeping practices. Come hear more from Adam Nelson is the founder of GeoBees, an early-stage software development company dedicated to apicultural research using geospatial analysis.
