One of the most interesting engineering details from the construction of the Large Hadron Collider LHC is the fact that they had to freeze an underground river in place, using liquid nitrogen, in order to assemble the detector.
This requires a constant supply of liquid helium pumped down from eight over-ground refrigeration plants — about , liters per year in total. A crazed billionaire installs a pipework labyrinth of liquid helium pumps beneath his home in Barcelona — and he proceeds to create a subterranean glacier inside the faults of the earth itself, freezing the soil down to a depth of six miles and altering the local climate, before carving a spectacular series of show caves out of the permafrost, wearing Antarctic expedition gear, armed with remote control micro-tunneling machines.
Riding zip lines through the autumn tree canopies of rural Pennsylvania is something of a growth industry, it seems, exploring ski resorts during the off-season by speeding downhill at 50 mph in a roped-up harness. From The New York Times :. Some zip lines are basically thrill rides that follow the cut of ski slopes and at this time of year offer expansive views of the autumn blaze of colors, along with an adrenaline rush.
Other courses like the one we were on are marketed as canopy tours , designed with a challenging combination of swaying sky bridges, cable traverses and zip line pathways cut through the deep forest. Once we climbed a cargo net to reach our first tree platform, we were literally amid the autumn foliage, not quite in the canopy of fully grown oaks and poplars but close enough to squirrels to guess their sex as they scampered from limb to limb just above us. This kind of vertical immersion in an otherwise inaccessible overhead landscape is incredibly interesting, in and of itself — but 1 it also reminds me of a project by artists Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings in which they reimagined the city of San Francisco as a city of roller coasters, wildlife preserves, underground libraries and health clubs installed inside BART cars, and, of course, zip lines across the San Francisco Bay.
Sky Tours of Manhattan. In the same way that you can take, for instance, Entourage -themed bus tours of Los Angeles, you could take Spiderman -themed zip line tours of New York. You call up Canopy Tours and ask them to price-out the entirety of Chicago. Or Istanbul. At the very least, they could map it.
Zip lines through the London financial district. Zip lines through the sandstone arches of Utah. Zip lines through Angkor Wat. A Zip Line Olympiad across the domes and spires of central Europe. Flowering plants and ferns and oak trees go whizzing by in an aerial gardenry that defies belief.
And if zip lines could realistically open up a whole new world of spatial volume in the modern high-rise metropolis, what new architectures and city surfaces might result? Part of the Liverpool Biennial]. In other words, the city is derivative; it is a collection of landmarks. It is vast, referentially comprehensive, and visually detailed—but, outside of its sheer curiosity, there is very little there that might recommend a visit. It is Brussels or The Hague. One might even say that Urville is framed to avoid the emotional vicissitudes of everyday life. Is it possible to create a genuine city from nothing—or can we only construct large congregations of architecture?
More urbanized than we have ever been before, have humans have apparently changed the very nature of the species: Humans are now animals that live together in cities. We are builders, dwellers and thinkers of towers and streets. But for all the talk of the ancient hunter-gatherer finally succumbing to the bright lights of the big city, it is not at all clear that we even know what cities really are.
Can we be certain, for all of the buildings currently under construction in places like Dubai, Shenzhen, and even Dallas-Ft. Worth, that it is cities we are creating? We are surrounded by more buildings than ever before, but perhaps this observation alone is not enough to say that human life has been thoroughly urbanized. An interesting analogy comes to us here from the history of videogame design.
But what exactly happened—and how does it relate to urban design? Great commercials were produced. Except for the programmers, however, no one was in the business of creating great videogames. Atari had a stellar business plan and a first-rate marketing team—but, for all intents and purposes, it had nothing interesting to sell. Following the logic of this example, it is easy enough to see Dubai—or even Tucson, Arizona—as a failed videogame in the desert, ironically under-designed and over-promoted. One could even say that we have perfected the art of the anti-city—that we have made up anything but truly urban environments.
Dubai, for instance, is famously difficult to navigate on foot, requiring a ten minute car ride down six-lane motorways, complete with frequently lethal U-turns, simply to get to the hotel across the street. Part of the Liverpool Biennial International 08 ]. But cities today are well known for popping up in the middle of nowhere, history-less and incomprehensible. There are slums, refugee camps, army bases—and Dubai.
Cities now erupt and linger; they are both too early and far too late. Cities move in, take root and expand, whole neighborhoods throwing themselves together in convulsions of glass and steel. Instead of cities of light soaring toward heaven, much of the twenty-first-century urban world squats in squalor, surrounded by pollution, excrement, and decay. These are not cities in any recognised infrastructural or legislative sense; they are, rather, dense collections of buildings.
On the other hand, sometimes a made-up city does not even require acts of construction. That is, what might appear simply to be a field of cloned single-family houses, buffered by vast tracts of manicured green space, can be transformed into a city with the stroke of a pen. Cities are thus created everyday, in other words, within the administrative guidelines for managing inhabited landscapes—and no new ground need ever be broken. The mayors of established cities have had a hard time adjusting to this fact. Paul and Miami. These are cities made up less by buildings than by tax codes and the law.
From boomburbs to Urville, via super-slums and Dubai, these instant cities take shape in less than a single generation and cross a fantastic landscape of competing urban forms. Is it really possible, though, that we could continue to make up and construct the wrong kinds of cities? One could perhaps be excused here for concluding that successful cities cannot be made up at all , that there is something fundamentally unthinkable or excessive to this process, something that simply cannot be planned in advance.
We are city-hunting. Writers fly halfway round the world to describe their newest adventures in Middle Eastern air-conditioning. Every urban day is remarkable, we read, for it is different—and somehow bigger, more extreme—than the last. Petersburg, to commission private islands, domes, and pyramids. We experiment with Olympic Villages.
Because it no longer matters if we are wrong about our cities; we will always be right if we just make up more. In one room, you can actually squeeze behind a wardrobe and end up in the school addition. In other words, could you apply the internal climatic lessons of architecture — windows and doors like valves that stop drafts — to outdoor landscapes , using folly-like structures to control the weather? In any case, the couple who bought the castle went on to bring their entire family there with them:.
When the family moved into Duncraig in the summer of , the castle had no sewage system. Everyone used portable toilets outside the castle. Seventeen people made do with one washing machine and two kitchens. When winter arrived at Duncraig, which is farther north than Moscow, the days shrank to a mere six and a half hours. Without streetlights or any large town for dozens of miles, the long nights were disorientingly dark.
Without central heat, it was impossible to get warm. All the clothes at the back of the wardrobe went rotten with mold. The specifics of the ensuing breakdown make for a fascinating read, but, in broad strokes, everything falls apart: they actually pay part of the family to leave, buying out their initial share of the investment; a court order against opening a day school inside a leaky side-building full of broken electrical equipment is obtained; and the parents are, incredibly, evicted from the property without compensation.
Read the rest if you get a chance. Farmers, however, as Boing Boing and the original blog post it links to are both quick to point out, are often portrayed in media polls as a voice of cultural and political authenticity in the United States. They are real Americans , the idea goes, a kind of quiet majority in the background that presidential candidates and media pundits would be foolish to overlook. But surely the more accurate lesson to be drawn from such a statement is exactly the opposite? If the United States — if the entire world — is rapidly urbanizing, then it would seem like literally the last thing we need in the White House, in an era of collapsing bridges and levees, is someone whose idea of public infrastructure is a dirt road.
