Activating Cities: Enable love to flow
[Collaborations] are what activate our cities.
CreativeMornings is a collaborative platform. It allows all sorts of creatives and audiences to come forward.
Creative programming in the spirit of place making is key.
How can we program our spaces to make them places? That's what creative programming is for...
You get the sense of belonging [in your city] because you love it. You don't see the city as just a shell that you go in and get out. You invest yourself into it. I think that is what's going to make our cities truly sustainable.
When you look at a city in a 200-year-old view, whatever decisions you take today is going to affect someone else in the future.
When you apply [love] to your craft, how you take care of the planet and community, and your cities, then everything starts to change.
When you love someone, you are more humane, empathetic, mindful, and think long-term.
The future sustainable city might be all about love.
I think the future of a sustainable city is going to be less hardware and more software.
Let's stop architects from just talking with other architects. What if we get architects to engage the larger creative community?
I used to design buildings and interested in designing cities, but it transitioned to figuring out how to activate cities.
