GOOGLE CREATING WIFI-BLIMPS STRETCHING FROM SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA TO SOUTH EAST ASIA CONNECTING UP TO 1 BILLION PEOPLE.
It’s a super good start now people in those areas need devices to use the wifi with.
√√√ thumbs up to google and let’s not get cynical and think about all the International spying that possibly financially backed up this project.
We’re excited to introduce Kim Holleman’s IDEAS CITY project, Trailer Park: A Mobile Public Park!
IDEAS CITY, a biennial Festival in New York City from May 1 – May 4, explores the future of cities around the globe with the belief that arts and culture are essential to the vitality of urban centers, making them better places to live, work, and play. This year’s theme is Untapped Capital, with participants focused on resources that are under-recognized or underutilized in our cities. Learn more at www.ideas-city.org.
NAME: Kim Holleman
PROJECT: Trailer Park: A Mobile Public Park
Brief description of the project:
Trailer Park: A Mobile Public Park is a living public park housed inside a fourteen-foot silver trailer that is 100 percent “street legal.” At Trailer Park, people can walk inside to go outside! The trailer houses a number of features that you might find at any other park, including brick planter beds, concrete and wooden benches, a winding stone path, trees, shrubs, vines, succulents, a fish pond, flowers, and even tiny insects and mushrooms every spring and fall. And the best part about it—it can go anywhere!
The Katho Catholic Academy commissioned dmvA Architecten and the South African firm A3 Architects to design a mobile student housing concept that provides students with their own detached bedroom units that plug in to a central terminal. The HUB 01 prototype in Kortrijk features units clad in either plants or solar panels.
