"Urbanisation is important because we can’t keep developing our food basin and we shouldn’t sentence young people to a life in the outskirts of suburbia, cut off from effective transport and services."

BICYCLE CENTER: Congested São Paulo to open free cyclist hub
Infamous for its traffic congestion, São Paulo has worked for years to improve rapid transit and to prove bike lanes and bike-share kiosks. Now, it will have something more for cyclists: a massive new headquarters for all their needs.
Nora Lamm reports for Global Site Plans that South America’s largest city begins construction this week on the “Largo Bike” facility. It will feature bike parking, showers, maintenance and repair along with restrooms and changing stations. Rentals will be available through Bike Sampa, the local bike-share service. Use of the facility will be free to registered users.
Underscoring the city’s commitment to promoting cleaner transportation, the cycling hub will be open 24-hours-a-day. São Paulo approved the structure, which opens this month, in response to record levels of congestion on its roads, the article says. The city already has an extensive network of bike lanes covering 260 km (162 miles).

"The future of art is not artistic, but urban."
Hi y’all, I’m just starting out on Twitter.
What I’m looking for is to have conversations and share information about topics that I’m (and hopefully you are) really passionate about. There’s not much there at the moment but as time goes on I’ll start to use the site more efficiently.
So if you’re interested in the following or want to see more personal posts have a gander.
- urban planning/design
- current affairs (incl. #auspol and #QandA)
- gaming (esp. N64 and pokemon)
I’m also looking to follow and RT people who share similar interests (I have you already ThisBigCity, and your French account ;) ).
If this sounds like you let me know! I really just want to share my urban planning and gaming excitement with people :3

Billboard Homes for the Homeless
Project Gregory is a non profit effort that converts existing billboard structures into affordable housing units. Maintenance costs, skills, and resources are covered through funds raised by the advert space and partner reciprocity.The Republic of Slovakian project utilises the electricity used to keep the billboard lit at night to power the home’s interior.
This project is open source and Project Gregory encourages all cities in all countries to construct new, innovative designs and involve as many companies as possible to help make a difference.
