Présentation de l'éditeur

The world’s cities are on pace to balloon from 3.6 billion inhabitants today to more than 6 billion by mid-century. As a result, we face both a dire emergency and a tremendous opportunity. At their best, our modern cities are hubs of human connection, fountains of creativity, and exemplars of green living. Yet at the same time, they still suffer the symptoms of industrial urbanization: pollution, crowding, crime, social fragmentation, and dehumanization. Now is the time to envision what cities can be and to transform them. This book, produced in partnership with the Atlantic Cities, celebrates 12 promising, provocative responses to this challenge, in realms ranging from transportation to food to art. It asks and begins to answer: How can we transform cities to be sustainable, efficient, beautiful, and invigorating to the human soul? And practically speaking, how do we get from here to there?

HASH(0x8996675c) étoiles sur 5 Interested in Cities? Then Read This Book. 22 mars 2013
Par B. McEwan - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
City 2.0 is a short book of highly interesting and enlightening essays about city life, now and in the years to come. Published by the visionaries at TED, it features a series of short, genuinely brilliant pieces that describe how some cities are innovating their processes, infrastructure and built environments to make life better for their current residents and to prepare to accommodate the tens of thousands of people who are expected to move into cities during the next 40 or so years.

For a mere $2.99 you can download this excellent book to your Kindle or any handheld that is running the Kindle application. Then start reading and be surprised. You'll learn how walkable cities contribute to public health by creating friendly streets that encourage walking rather than driving. Author Jeff Speck writes in the essay entitled, Walkable Cities, "Increasingly, it is becoming clear that the American health care crisis is largely an urban design crisis, with walkability at the heart of the cure."

Speck describes how Oklahoma City, rated by Prevention Magazine as one of the "10 Worst US Walking Cities" in 2008, took action to make itself more friendly to pedestrians. It re-examined its wide driving lanes and one-way streets, both of which encourage speeding. The city narrowed lanes, restored two-way traffic, installed bike lanes and planted several thousand street trees. With the space saved from narrowing the driving lanes, more than 800 parallel parking spaces were added to one of the city's main streets, Robinson Avenue. Not only did this result in a far more pleasant streetscape, but local businesses directly benefited. Why? Because for every parking space that is removed from a street an adjacent business loses about $10,000 per year in sales! (According to the National Main Street Program.)

City 2.0 is loaded with fascinating facts and stories along these lines, highlighting everything from high-tech urban apartments with flexible walls to guerrilla urbanism to autocatalytic cities. If you are interested in cities yet don't know what these terms mean, you really need to pick up this excellent book and find out.

HASH(0x89966984) étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Essays on the Future of Urban Life 24 mai 2014

I am not an urban planner or architect and have no training in design or city planning. Coming into the subject without much expertise, I can attest to the value of this book as an amazing introduction to the topic. It is a light read, but packed with incredible concepts which will spur me on to read more on the topic. I was particularly fascinated by the discussion of aquaponics and its possibilities in an urban setting. I just discovered TED books and can't get enough of them!

HASH(0x89966be8) étoiles sur 5 Decent compendium of ideas 19 décembre 2013
Par George - Publié sur

Depending on your knowledge of contemporary planning and design, urban issues, and placemaking and/or entrepreneurial efforts, this blog-like book is eye-opening, reinforcing, or, at the low-end of the spectrum, adding nothing new. Across the book, the general superficial coverage of ideas and initiatives from a mixed-bag of contributors moves from inspiring and innovative to middling and insufficient. Not great but not bad.

This is a selection of essays on important topics related to the City and urban planning. Unfortunately America over committed to the suburbs, the automobile and ugly sky scrapers so we're stuck with over rated city's that people don't actually want to live in because they have no character or soul.

Chicago is a good example of how outdated and over rated America has become but there were no essays on this city. Hopefully change will come soon. America is in desperate need for transforming bottom up infrastructure projects that build community and foster civic participation.

Par Vincent P Nolan, Jr - Publié sur

This book appeared as a recommended book for me after completing Brad Feld's StartUp Communities. City 2.0 is so much more important and useful to local leaders who want to improve their communities. It is perhaps one of the most readable books of its type and provides a variety of ideas that ANY community can employ to make their city stronger! As an economic developer who often becomes frustrated by command and control bureaucracy, this was like a manifesto I might have written to release those frustrations.
