[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.
"Come to this city with nothing but a Desire, Commitment; be willing to work hard and all of the infastructure you need exists"
Great cities are telling stories that we can see. We've got to be able to see your story.
Great cities also cast a compelling vision of the future. We don't just get stuck in the past; we preserve that and cherish it. Great cities are telling stories of hope in the future.
Don't you love that when you're in a city? When you can read the old and the new all together in the same area in the same street. That's context. That's the story of the city playing out right in front of you. . . . We gotta hold onto the old.
Great cities tell true stories.
Cities and the stories they tell need to be about you and your unique role; you and your individuality. We need cities with people who are living out their uniqueness.
I happen to agree with Eames that art is a quality, not a product.
Craft is not a product, it's a quality.
Cities are stories that go on and on and we all get to play a part of these stories.
Often times we find ourselves running around and running errands but there's always something worth noticing, sometimes when you least expect it.
The most expensive transportation systems out there… are the ones nobody uses.
Contemporary architecture can’t send a certain message into eternity forever.
Architecture is gradually acquiring features of an interface, and this interface should be user-friendly.
That power - we're going to laugh it away - and that's part of what makes these memes effective.
Now go ahead. Mingle. Connect. Combine. And go make Montréal this citizen platform!
Technology is giving a lot of power to the users rather than to large technology companies. In politics, it is the power of citizens that is taking shape.
Urbanization is changing our political behaviour.
We need more collaboration and less territoriality.
We are in the process of taking back our streets. The street is crucial because it is the first incarnation of our shared space. Everything happens on the street. We always have to go down to the street.
In a city, stories are important. Anecdotes, urban legends are important.
You're now living in a city, as you're watching it happen, that is growing before you.
Design does matter. Being a designer is important because, as a designer, we have the ability to design the world we want to live in. So I think it’s up to all of us to design something worthwhile.
This is about business to business spending local and how that affects how your investment flies.
I don't know why we need a huge closet full of crappily made clothes.
How much are we willing to pay for convenience and low price when the currency in that exchange is our identity as a city?
We need to create a culture of accepting mistakes and actually rewarding people who are at least trying.
We accept that with innovation comes mistakes.
Accepting the status quo is not an answer, that's an excuse.
We need to be questioning why things are done a certain way and always be looking for that better way, not just accepting the status quo.
Change has to happen. It's inevitable.
The core of the Upstart ethos is thinking about how we can creatively engage with individuals and communities to create transformation and change.
I'm really interested in this uptick of lo-fi small scale creative participation.
Everyone is looking for someone else to do something first in order to fix the city.
A city is a set of opportunities and possibilities.
I believe that data visualization can not only help us understand today's cities, but that it also has the potential to help us shape the city of the future.
I have explored data visualization really as a tool for understanding urban form.
Transit patterns demonstrate how an interactive application has the potential to tell many stories from within a single set of data.
The people and places are what make living in a big city.
Never stop being amazed by your surroundings.
Storytelling has really experienced a renaissance in our digital daily lives.
I figured out that I had to step out of my comfort zone and get out into the world and meet the people.
Inspiration lies on the street in front of you.
When you live in a city as a creative, you get your inspiration either from within or from your surroundings.
The flip side of interactivity and the interface is surveillance, monitoring, data collection.
Remix culture is a way to take control of the narrative. It's not just a critique, it shows another way entirely.
The actions we learn for social and creative expression can take a political form.
Internet censorship is like those crazy baby videos, those cat videos—it just won't go away.
Memes are the street are of the social web.
It's that little act of creating, shifting, and putting it in your perspective, that makes memes very powerful.
Just start your project and everything else will fall into place.
