Sustainable Cities of Northern EuropeStockholm, Malmo, Copenhagen, Odense, Freiburg, Strasbourg, and Zurich, Europe - Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and SwitzerlandArrive Date: 7/1/2010 End Date: 7/31/2010Program OverviewThis course examines principles of sustainability as they apply to urban areas. We will explore 9 cities in 5 European countries: Stockholm and Malmo, in Sweden; Copenhagen, Aero, and Odense in Denmark; Hannover and Freiburg, in Germany; Strasbourg in France; and Zurich in Switzerland. Each is widely recognized for their efforts to become more sustainable.We will explore innovations such as: compact, mixed use, transit-(and pedestrian) oriented planning; high quality urban design for walkable cities, car-free developments, urban waterfront and brownfield development, bicycle friendly urbanism, alternative housing models, renewable energy sources solar, wind, bio-fuels) and energy efficiency, recycling, reuse and reduction in solid waste, innovations in heating and cooling at the district scale, storm water management, natural areas restoration and preservation as part of the urban fabric, and similar topics that require a policy, planning and urban design response. Students will learn sustainable measures; to quickly “read” cities and recognize how they function; gain insights into how European communities have embraced sustainable concepts; and gain insights into how to translate these lessons to U.S. cities.In each community, we will: (1) take a walking (and biking) tour of key parts of the city; (2) take specialized tours of innovative places, neighborhoods, and facilities often by testing local public transit or energy facilities; (3) learn from local officials and scholars about the country, region or community’s efforts; and (4) complete a series of hands on field exercises in urban design and sustainable planning. Students will keep a journal, do a series of visual and mapping exercises, and develop a substantial paper on a sustainability topic of the student’s choice.
tawnya:Went and saw the Tara Donovan exhibit at MCASD downtown. It blew my tiny little mind in the very best way possible. I strongly recommend it. Like, a LOT.
ray333:... my first one at a Pink Floyd concert at Anaheim Stadium in 1977. It really happened - other people saw it, too!
ray333:At the Anaheim Stadium show in '77 PF played "Animals" al the way through, then "Wish You Were Here" from cover to cover, followed by one encore from DSOTM: "Money."

Njord Noatun: bikingbill:Interesting website idea ... worldwide bike and part registration:Clever idea. Two questions:How does the finder decode the bar code so as to identify the rightful owner?What kind of self-print sticker is durable enough to survive intact exposed to the elements on a bike frame?I am sure there are good answers to my questions - just wondering!
Cecil:Today marks 90 days without driving. I will celebrate by riding CM tonight and picking up my '71 Polara wagon tomorrow.
