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

    Los Angeles Housing and Incubator for Artists Hopes to Grow to Every Community | Planetizen: The Urban Planning, Design, and Development Network →

    For those curious about what a creative live/work community art center looks like, downtown Los Angeles offers a glimpse at one.

    Clement Lau, a Los Angeles County planner, recently visited the Art Share LA, which provides artists with live/work lofts and offers spaces for classes, exhibitions, and events.

    The Aftermath of a Music Festival via Amusing Planet

    The morning after the night the Reading Festival concluded, and the festival goers disseminated, photographer David White took off in a helicopter to capture the scene of the campsite. The 90,000 strong crowd that collected at the venue to enjoy the 3-day music festival had left behind a chaos of abandoned tents, beer cans, cigarette butts, half-eaten food, discarded packaging, grubby clothes, sleeping bags and a sea of plastic.

    View of Superkilen, Nørrebro 

A kilometre-long public park that winds its way through an area to the north of Copenhagen’s city centre, Superkilen is dotted with surreal follies – from a giant Japanese octopus slide to a star-shaped Moroccan fountain – inspired by the many different nationalities that live in this diverse district.

London’s Design Museum announces it’s designs of the year. More info:

    Bringing the ‘Ghosts’ of Google Street View To Life
There’s a whole cottage industry online devoted to mining for these oddities (see here, here, here, and here, a blog devoted entirely to people caught walking their dogs on Google Street View).
Artist Paolo Cirio, however, believes that all of these images are misappropriated data.
"It’s really interesting for me that Google didn’t ask permission to do what they did, just going around every single city in the world and taking pictures without even alerting the police, or the public administration"
