Urban planner. I travel. I collect case studies. I share. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of the arts and urbanism.

    Urban Farming Case Study:

With the mission to operate sustainable urban farms and innovative growing systems, Farm: Shop in East London sells produce from it’s own fish farm and rooftop chicken coop. Rated as one of Time Out London’s Top 100 Shops, FARM: Shop is a great place to see experiments in urban farming in action. Their in-store cafe serves delicious fresh food too.

    IKEA is known for their shrewd reading of consumer behavior, so it makes sense they’re investing in just such a scheme. Strand East is a 6,000-person community the corporation is building on a 27-acre industrial plot adjacent to London’s 2012 Olympic Park. Already under construction, the village will open in 2013.

    Feeling nostalgic and enjoying this wonderful video of city life in London during 1927. I especially like the trip through Hyde Park.

    Built from 8 recycled shipping containers arranged on 2 overhanging levels. The restaurant chain’s way of experimenting with new design and new dishes.  It also boasts a tequila bar with stunning river views. The Wahaca Southbank Experiment will run for 18 months, before moving on to another location.
