Going Urban

If the Dark Lord has forbidden it, you are not to speak...   Master has given Dobby a sock  

An Australian social science student with a peaked interest in urban, social, and environmental planning. I look forward to evolutionary cityscapes, rapid public transit systems, and the implementation of creative, long-term, cost-effective designs.

I've taken to reblogging non-relevant posts between urbanism goodness. I regret nothing.

On Tuesdays, I’m the supermarket employee that builds the displays at the end of every aisle.

“fuck you, you fucking fuck” is all I say to bottles of shampoo and packets of biscuits for nine hours.

The Pruitt-Igoe projects were razed in 1972, but their influence on Ferguson’s social and financial divides echo today as redevelopment is planned.

India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

universe—cosmos:

Imagine how it would look if the Orion nebula is only four light years away - the distance the nearest star is to us, instead of 1,300 light years. It would be so bright that we wouldn’t be aware of the dark sky. We wouldn’t see other stars. The whole world would be the Orion nebula and the sun.

-The Universe 2x14: Nebulas

It would be impossible to get bored looking at this sky.

I just stumbled upon a “corner shop” art project in east London, where everything on the shelves—from the cigarettes to the packs of gum—are hand-sewn. http://ift.tt/1AXLBH0 via Instagram http://ift.tt/1tD3MfO
