I hope you’ve managed to switch off, shut down and get away to some wild
landscapes in the past month,
leaving your gadgets and screens behind. If you have,
you might have missed some of the eye candy
and more sober brain food that was posted on our Facebook page,
so now you’re in for a treat.
Like the striking, almost haunting winter shot of our kabinettgarten at the Internationale Garten Ausstellung which opens in April in Berlin.
Check out the many sketches Anton added to the GREENinc Sketchbook album ,
including some more of the kabinettgarten.
And if you haven’t done so already, you have to check out the presentation the team prepared for Khama Plaza in Gaborone, Botswana. You’ll see why I say so.
There are two articles on cities, one on smart ones vs dumb ones
(“There’s community and there’s commuting. Let’s not confuse the two“.)
and one on visualization software that lets you compare the density and texture of different urban areas, producing figure/ground images of streets and blocks at a set scale.
In case you ever need to compare Irvine and Tunis objectively.
You never know.
Wishing you a wonderful 2017.
’til next time.
