Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Television shows on urbanism: Innovation Cities on CNBC

Philips, a large systems integration firm with what we would call a "smart city" agenda, is sponsoring a short vignette series on CNBC TV called "Innovation Cities." Each two and a half minute episode will focus on a facet of city life, exploring an innovation which is providing dynamic change and contributing to business development in health, the home and schools. The series will air once a week (each Thursday) for nine weeks and full episodes will also be available across all CNBC’s digital and mobile platforms.

The first episode explores how technology can be used to allow people more control over their own healthcare through a virtual patient monitoring system known as TEKI, which utilises existing technology in the Xbox Kinect to enable patients to manage existing conditions at home.



2. Plus earlier in the year, KCET, a PBS station in Los Angeles, did a series of programs under the title, City Walk. I wasn't totally enamored of the snippets I watched, but I haven't watched the entire series, which is available online.
