Yuppie Urbanism v. Egalitarian Urbanism -
But whether that fact dooms egalitarian urbanism depends in large part, it seems to me, on how successful yuppie urbanism is. If, on the one hand, the new urban ideology is applied in a limited, targeted way – if public transit investment goes mainly to pretty-looking but functionally useless streetcars in gentrifying downtown districts, rather than improving regional bus networks (and maybe trains in some metro areas); if politicians’ commitment to urban design is limited to sexy mixed-use development only in those same central areas they want to gentrify, rather than a complete overhaul of zoning and design standards across the region; if a few center-city bike lanes aren’t accompanied by a broader change in road construction guidelines to make walking and accessing public transit viable and safe; then early 21st century urbanism will have the same anti-egalitarian legacy as mid-20th century urbanism.
Google has a new exciting project called Night Walk launched. The project combines several of his Google services to an acoustic city walk. With the help of Google Street View can move through the scene-Cours Julien district of Marseilles, in the process.
@MRDIZASTER @knamelis @905Arcane Arcane? That’s a hard name! Sorry for the late reply, but you’ve always had a problem with time ;)— IKEA Canada (@IKEACanada)May 21, 2014
Wow. IKEA just referenced a rap battle in reply to a tweet from Dizaster, one of the battlers from the video.
They might look back and think it was a bad idea, but they put Diz in a box…like furniture from IKEA.
“The shuttle takes me to downtown Phoenix and every bar I go into there are guys with stitches around the rim of an eye socket where a good slam packed their face meat against its sharp edge. There are guys with sideways noses, and these guys at the bar see me with the puckered hole in my cheek and we’re an instant family.”
