This is one of my favorite photos I took last year. I love it so much, I actually have it framed in the room where most of my plant babes live. 🌿 Photography is a hobby of mine, and I’m excited to share my favorites with you guys! 📷 #plantsandprints . . . . . . . . . . #minimalistic #urbanism #architecture_best #placemaking #archidetails #archiphotography #buildinglovers #sovietmodernism #simpleandpure #minimalplanet #minimalarchitecture #symetry #perspectives #abmplantlady #abmspaces #abmhome #snapshotofmyhome #wherewedwell #shophomedecor #minimaldecoration #nordicstyling #homedecor #interiorandhome #myinterior #uohome #lightandbright #decorcrushing #showemyourstyled #apartmenttherapy
City-makers, what do you think of this? 👍 or 👎 #walkingbillboards #advertising
Was instructed to take a walk at my humane workplace today (that is genuine). Feeling grateful to the Chinese people whose families missed them while they built the railway that united this country. Sad I couldn't find a @historicacanada minute on them. Is there one?

“Another Room in the House” Last summer I went exploring the Boston Harbor. I focused on who uses the waterfront, why, and in what manner, pondering I about the nature of how place is created. Not just the physical aspect, but place as a creative process that influences, as Amanda Blunden said “how your body feels on that seat, in that space” . Access to Boston’s waterfront has been an integral part of the conversation about public spaces in Boston, but I realized that this conversation should move towards the more difficult and subjective issue of placemaking. The key issue is how the Harbor will be shaped to create a place for the enjoyment of all. The focus on access has resulted in sections that feel like hallways, where people go from point A to point B. . Placemaking is about vision, determining and reflecting the city Bostonians want, need, and deserve—not only as consumers, as workers, or as taxpayers, but as humans. The love affair with luxury-based development has eroded that vision, and planning initiatives in many sections of the Harbor have created spaces whose ultimate beneficiaries are those in the position to pay for such luxury. No matter how much access is protected, such focus is leaving most Boston residents de facto excluded from the recreational potential and the character of the Harbor as a space for all. . See more about Another Room in the House: https://bit.ly/2SVntCT or link at bio . Opening Exhibition Jan 22. Details here: https://bit.ly/2HfHa6O . 1 Karen J. and Charlie Clark, residents of South Boston, are two of the many weekend visitors to this quiet corner of South Boston port to fish—or just to escape crowds in other spaces. . 2 Courageous Sailing in the Charlestown Navy Yard hosts SailBlind, run by the Carroll Center for the Blind. Bruce Howell, seen setting up a sail, says this program helps “rebuild your sense of self-worth and self-confidence, and by learning to do something new like sailing, it [gives] me a chance to feel good about myself and gives me a reason to keep living.”

Starting refinements to the first phase our new community master plan in Tulsa Ok. This hand sketch version shows blocks extending from the historic farm yard green which will remain as the heart. Most of the lots are normative in size for traditional neighborhood homes with some that are wider and shallower but similar in overall area with various width that will work with many many new urbanism single family plans. The Learning Cottage school building anchors the green to the south, while the simple historic shed barn sits on the north end as a renewed civic building. This design has an overall cranky village character including where the streets and lanes have faceted bends (not curvy) to best create enclosure and offer views of terminated vista and the house streetscape elevations. There are some additional duplex, apartment lots, and abundant ADU which can stand along or be part of main lots. Will be walking the staked centerlines of the streets out on the site over the next few days of work sessions to advance the design. #housingchoice #NewCivicVision #PocketNeighborhood #NewUrbanism #LightImprint #LowImpactDevelopment #LID #CNU #landconservation #PocketCourtProject #TraditionalNeighborhoodDevelopment #placemaking #community #edison #harlow #evolvingcommunities #tulsa #osagehills #greenway #permaculture #janewalks #villagegreen #farmsquare #frontporch #greatstreets #originalgreen #urbandesign Thomas E.

Making way for pending growth in the Charlotte region. Today we are helping convert old sprawl into high density, mixed-use, infill development. We’ll be bringing in some goodies too, such as a greenway & pedestrian connectivity, and #missingmiddle housing (ie. quadplexes, duplex townhomes, mansion flats), plus lots of beautiful streets! . . . . #Urbansprawl #sprawl #placemaking #urbandesign #urbanplanning #mixedusedevelopment #mixeduse #landscapearchitecture #landscapedesign #placemaking #placemakingdesign #pedestrianconnection #missingmiddlehousing

For NYC residents and visitors the High Line has become one of the most celebrated public spaces within the city. The High Line currently has 3 completed sections (opened 2009, 2011, and 2014 respectably) and one section under construction (opens 2019). From the The High Line’s website one learns the following: “It’s a public space where you can view art, walk through gardens, experience a performance, savor delicious food, or just connect with friends and neighbors—while enjoying a unique perspective of the city. Built on a historic, elevated freight line, the High Line has become a world-renowned inspiration for how cities can transform industrial infrastructure into beautiful, hybrid public spaces.” Yet, we can see a noticeable difference between the High Line and the sidewalks right underneath it. At Walkspan, we believe on extending the quality and beauty of the High Line to the low line, all of NYC’s sidewalks. Let’s start a conversation on how we can adopt, to a feasible and prudent extent, the qualities and features of the High Line to our city sidewalks. #highline #highlinenyc #nyc #openspace #publicspace #nyclandmark #landmark #tourism #visitnyc #nycgo #placemaking #urbanspace #completestreets #urbanplanning #development #parks #gardens #sidewalks #walk #foodforthough #letstalk #placemakingopportunity #opportunity #growth #nature #beauty #architecture #bikelane #walkablecity #smartcity

"People of colour can't even imagine what being included feels like in public spaces in Cape Town" - Zahira Asmal, speaking at #freespace tonight. Dr Luyanda Mpahlawa, a Cape Town-based architect and urban designer, will also be speaking at #freespace , and recently made a similar point to Cape Talk 567 AM about public space in a South African context, saying: "Space in South Africa is contested. Space is categorised according to race, culture and income group. There's a whole other dimension to the exclusivity that we are experiencing." . .

Excited to be part of ‘The Maker Session’ @thepilgrm on Tuesday 22 Jan 2019: With arts and crafts’ role in reimagining old and new neighbourhoods, along with the role of ‘place’ becoming increasingly more prevalent, we ask why? From King’s Cross to Hackney and Williamsburg to Detroit, we’re seeing new developments stick closely to their heritage, with intentions to reinvent old narrative for the modern world. With these iconic neighbourhoods springing back to life, each rooted in history and combining craft with both architecture and design - we ask how, and just where this trend is headed. Panellists: Tamsin Green, Project Leader at Heatherwick Studio
 Tim Hubbard, Founder at 93ft
