Urban Interaction Design - Online Conversation with Tobias Revell, Manu Fernández and Han Pham
Along with Tobias Revell and Han Pham, and hosted by Martin Brynskov, I will be part of the conversation for the next ten days, discussing the character and relevance of the emerging field of urban interaction design. You can follow the conversation as a series of question-responses rounds and let´s see how the experiment works.

"China has been moving sand onto reefs and shoals to add several new islands to the Spratly archipelago, in what foreign officials say is a new effort to expand the Chinese footprint in the South China Sea. The officials say the islands will be able to support large buildings, human habitation and surveillance equipment, including radar."

#UrbanReviewer finally online! 150 NYC urban plans since 1949 in one online tool http://www.urbanreviewer.org/ by @596Acres
596 Acres has teamed up with Partner & Partners and SmartSign to produce a comprehensive online map showing all the adopted neighborhood master plans for New York City. It has taken us nearly two years to follow up on a Freedom of Information Law request for records of those plans and meticulous translation of paper plans into machine-readable spreadsheets to make this map. The plans were written with a great city in mind. Huge swaths were designated for demolition, to be paid for with federal dollars. Lots that were designated this way to justify the funding for demolition had to be included in a plan that stated what they “should” be - designations like “housing,” “industrial,” and “open space.”
