“We think we can develop a vehicle that operates on bike lanes, that’s accessible to elderly, disabled, women in skirts, business people, and address the issues of energy, congestion, mobility, aging, and obesity simultaneously.”
For the first time in history more people live in cities than in rural areas and the trend is accelerating worldwide. In this TEDPrize City 2.0 talk Kent Larson, director of the MIT Media Lab Changing Places’ group, tackles the problems of increased congestion and pollution with new models for urban dwellings, shared-use vehicles, and responsive environments.
Play the City proposes using city gaming in real planning and city design procedures. Our Re-Play Noord! game was part of La Fabrique de la Cite’s Building the Shared City conference August 2012 in Amsterdam.
The legal plan of Overhoeks is slowly but decisively progressing. We ask what would be the most desirable form of an organic development around the Shell Tower and Grootlab? Do we really need 70.000 sqm of extra offices in Overhoeks as the legal plan suggests? How to organize the remaining 200.000sqm of housing job? Can small entrepreneurs be the authors of this task replacing a giant investor?
Reinvent Payphones Winner: NYC I/O: The Responsive City – Best in Community Impact
Control Group and Titan partnered to create NYC I/O— the transformation of the corner payphone into a digital node that will usher in a new era of The Responsive City. By updating the payphone with a modern array of sensors and displays to create a foundational input/output system for an open, urban-scale computing platform, we can allow New York City to respond to and serve the people. Through open access to real time data and a distribution platform for community, civic, arts and comercial apps and messaging, we can create a safer, more efficient, and more enjoyable city.
NYC manages a telecommunications network of 11,412 public pay payphones throughout the five boroughs. Payphone use has decreased with mobile device adoption, but payphones still serve the communications needs of thousands of New Yorkers a day, especially in times of emergency. The City asked the tech and design community to reinvent New York City payphones to make our city more accessible, safer, healthier, and better informed.
- Create a full data network by using existing payphone infrastructure.
- Make each payphone a primary input/output tool for interactive communication between the city and citizens
- Make the software and hardware open and flexible to evolve over time to accomodate changes in technologies over time
