Two Voi e-scooters parked in street of Turku city, Finland

This was taken from the footbridge at the Royal Victoria Dock. It was too windy for this kind of photo really, but after quite a few attempts, I managed to get a sharp shot.

 

The building in the foreground is called The Crystal and houses a permanent exhibition on sustainable city development, as well as being a highly sustainable building itself.

Thanks for viewing :-)

The Museum of Tomorrow (Portuguese: Museu do Amanhã) is a science museum in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was designed by Spanish neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava, and built next to the waterfront at Pier Maua. Its construction was supported by the Roberto Marinho Foundation and cost approximately 230 million reais. The building was opened on December 17, 2015 with President Dilma Rousseff in attendance.[1]

The main exhibition takes visitors through five main areas: Cosmos, Earth, Anthropocene, Tomorrow and Now via a number of experiments and experiences. The museum mixes science with an innovative design to focus on sustainable cities.[1]

Funded by the Rio city government with support from sponsors, the building attempts to set new standards of sustainability in the municipality. Compared with conventional buildings, designers say it uses 40% less energy (including the 9% of its power it derives from the sun), and the cooling system taps deep water from nearby Guanabara Bay. The structure looks set to be one of Rio’s most famous tourist sights. Its solar spines and fan-like skylight have been designed so that the building can adapt to changing environmental conditions.[1]

The museum has partnerships with Brazil’s leading universities, global science institutions and collects real-time data on climate and population from space agencies and the United Nations. It has also hired consultants from a range of related fields, including astronauts, social scientists and climate experts. It sits waterside in a port area that was left abandoned for decades, and is now being renovated with new office blocks, apartments and restaurants. The museum is part of the city's port area renewal for the 2016 Summer Olympics. [1]

Todi is a town and comune (municipality) of the province of Perugia (Umbria) in central Italy. It is perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the east bank of the river Tiber, commanding distant views in every direction.

In the 1990s, Richard S. Levine, a professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky, chose Todi as the model sustainable city, because of its scale and its ability to reinvent itself over time. After that, the Italian press reported on Todi as the world's most livable city.

The Housing Development Corporation, established in 2001, aims to plan and build a new sustainable city called Hulhumalé. The mission statement reads: "‘The City of Hope’ is being developed as a modern Smart city with a focus on youth and providing opportunities with the necessary infrastructure to encourage the creative entrepreneurship of the youth of the nation. ‘Youth City’ developments focus around the Knowledge Park, IT Park etc. planned for the Phase 2 of Hulhumalé. The city, with its upcoming fiber optic network, is designed to incorporate the aspects of a ‘Gigabit Community’ to provide the required ICT Backbone to achieve the speeds to cater for the regional market."

I've spent a couple of days in the Phase 1 town with its wonderful, long white-sandy beach and lots of new architecture. Of course I ventured to the northern border of this town where, looking across a channel with lots of aquatic birds, you can see the construction of Phase 2 (inset). Five bridges are to span that canal, and the inset shows work in progress on Bridge 5.

It's a very dusty and hot area, but small plants have a way of fending for themselves even in this kind of environment. Here's a Zornia; I'm not sure which one. There are very many different kinds all over the world, and they naturalise quickly in 'foreign' areas. The name 'Zornia' is for Johannes Zorn (1739-1799) a German naturalist who published a number of volumes with beautiful engravings of plants.

I set myself the project of recreating each model Christian and I built on LEGO Masters US in miniature. Which one is your favorite?

Excerpt from metrolinx.com:

 

Evergreen Brick Works and Friends of Pan Am Path lead project to have murals painted on Bridge 81 concrete pillars

 

Japanese artist Hiroyasu Tsuri has done that with a massive mural below the historic rail bridge next to the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto. With support from Metrolinx, his work was commissioned by Evergreen and Friends of Pan Am Path in 2017. The piece, featuring a large snake and plants native to the area, was completed in September.

 

“It makes things pop in a landscape that you hadn’t noticed,” said Hannah Kemp, the art and exhibits coordinator for Evergreen Brick Works. “You find yourself bringing new perspectives to something that has always been there.”

 

Tsuri’s mural is one of two that will be painted on Bridge 81, which is no longer in use, based on a “sustainable city” theme. The second will be created in the spring by world-renowned artists EL MAC + KWEST. Another called ‘The Pull of the Land’ by Faith XLVII has been there since 2013.

 

“It’s some of the elements that I like,” said Tsuri, otherwise known as TWOONE. “I like old, decaying walls, the greens and stuff. I like how it looks.”

 

Curator Emmanuel Jarus is an internationally recognized muralist from Toronto and has been excited about bringing this space to life.

 

“It’s obviously an older, historic looking bridge with a beautiful façade to paint,” said Jarus. “The fact that it’s unique instead of it being a flat, brick wall. As soon as something has its own personality and uniqueness to it, it makes it attractive as an art piece.”

CopenHill - Amager Bakke - at night…

 

“CopenHill, also known as Amager Bakke, is a power plant located on an industrial waterfront that is capable of converting 440,000 tons of waste into clean energy annually. It was designed by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) to double as public infrastructure, and is complete with tree-lined hiking trails and ski slopes on its roof along with the "tallest artificial climbing wall in the world" on its facade.” (1).

 

“Nearly a decade in the making, the landmark CopenHill waste-to-energy plant has finally opened in Copenhagen. CopenHill is the result of nearly ten years of thought, time and design. To complete the project, BIG worked with SLA, AKT, Lüchinger+Meyer, MOE and Rambøll. The plant aspires to embody the notion of Hedonistic Sustainability while aligning with Copenhagen’s goal of becoming the world’s first carbon-neutral city by 2025. The 41,000m2 project includes an urban recreation center and environmental education hub, turning social infrastructure into an architectural landmark. Beneath the slopes, furnaces, steam, and turbines convert 440,000 tons of waste annually into enough clean energy to deliver electricity and district heating for 150,000 homes. CopenHill features a continuous façade comprised of 1.2m tall and 3.3m wide aluminum bricks stacked like gigantic bricks overlapping each other.

 

CopenHill is a blatant architectural expression of something that would otherwise have remained invisible: that it is the cleanest waste-to-energy power plant in the world. As a power plant, CopenHill is so clean that we have been able to turn its building mass into the bedrock of the social life of the city – its façade is climbable, its roof is hikeable and its slopes are skiable. A crystal clear example of Hedonistic Sustainability – that a sustainable city is not only better for the environment – it is also more enjoyable for the lives of its citizens.” Bjarke Ingels, Founder & Creative Director, BIG.” (2).

Vancouver the Sustainable City with a view of Stanley Park and Lions Gate Bridge at Night

The Museum of Tomorrow (Portuguese: Museu do Amanhã) is a science museum in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was designed by Spanish neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava, and built next to the waterfront at Pier Maua. Its construction was supported by the Roberto Marinho Foundation and cost approximately 230 million reais (£40m/$59m). The building was opened on December 17, 2015 with President Dilma Rousseff in attendance.

 

The structure – which was supposed to have opened before last year’s World Cup – looks set to be one of Rio’s most famous tourist sights. With solar spines that bristle above and a fan-like skylight below, it is designed to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Catalan architect Santiago Calatrava says he was inspired by the bromeliads in Rio’s Botanical Gardens. Inside, however, the whitewashed curves are more reminiscent of the 1960s concrete modernism of Oscar Niemeyer.

 

The main exhibition takes visitors through five main areas: Cosmos, Earth, Anthropocene, Tomorrow and Now via a number of experiments and experiences. The museum mixes science with an innovative design to focus on sustainable cities.

 

Funded by the Rio city government with support from sponsors, the building attempts to set new standards of sustainability in the municipality. Compared with conventional buildings, designers say it uses 40% less energy (including the 9% of its power it derives from the sun), and the cooling system taps deep water from nearby Guanabara Bay. The structure looks set to be one of Rio’s most famous tourist sights. Its solar spines and fan-like skylight have been designed so that the building can adapt to changing environmental conditions

 

The concept of the museum is that tomorrow is not ready. The 'Tomorrow' will be the construction and people will participate in this construction as Brazilians, citizens and members of the human species. This is not a museum for objects, but a museum for ideas.

 

It's a 'new generation' of science museums for transform our thinking in order to shape the next 50 years of life on this planet in a sustainable and harmonious coexistence.

Taiping is No 3 most sustainable city in the world

Dhaka (Bangladesh) traffic has been called one of the 7 wonders of the modern world. To be fair, this is a street adjacent to New Market and isn't really a normal traffic road. For example, rickshaws are prohibited. Bangladesh has been promoting the use of natural gas (CNG) for over a decade resulting in significant reduction in smog.

Church of the Saviour on the city (the other is the Church of the Transfiguration on the city; the Church of origin Fair Drev Cross that on the city) is a church in the historic center of Yaroslavl in the Kotoroslnoj Quay. Located at the border of the city by the Chopped descent to a low Bank of Kotorosl. It is known that the temple there was a wooden church of the Transfiguration "even in times of Yaroslavl specific princes», i. e. before the year 1463. The Church was a parish and was located on "city of the size of the" why and got the name "the Saviour on a sustainable city". In 1978-1981 years the temple was renovated by the forces of JaSNPRM. Fully restored facades of the main volume, the north aisle and the Bell Tower. Hoisted gilt crosses. Eliminated the most dangerous cracks and potholes. In 1991-1993 years conducted repeated repair work. In July 2003 the year Temple passed Yaroslavl diocese. Abbot (2003 year)-ieromonah Sergy (Drums), obedience to the first Pro-Rector of the Yaroslavl Theological Seminary.

Rod Hunt was commissioned by Bloomberg Businessweek to visualise Megacity 2050, how an idealised future city might look in 2050 incorporating new ideas in urban planning and sustainability.

 

Some of the featured developments include waste energy systems, vertical farming, renewable energy, floating platforms, sailing ship/airship freight, Bioswales, Geothermal heating/cooling, heat-deflecting green roofs, prefabricated homes and shaded/green-walled buildings. The city is built around walking, followed by bicycles, then electric vehicles and public transit. The final article ultimately wasn't published due to space issues in the magazine.

At the end of October 2011, the world population will pass the 7 billion mark. This year’s annual report by UNFPA, the UN population fund, highlights the remarkable trends behind the numbers: roughly one in two people now lives in an urban area, the global average life span is 68 years, and close to a billion people are 60 and over. The report sees the possibilities in 7 billion – for fostering sustainable cities, productive labour forces, and generations young and old that contribute to the well-being of economies and societies.

The fight against the environmental, socio-cultural and urban crisis is one of the topics on which many cities have been more or less involved. Town planners have been mainly concerned with being futuristic and perhaps utopian? Smart cities do not really seem to create urban life? Except in shopping centres? And especially now with the shopping that happens at home? We have a bit of cities without crossing each other and without producing an identity? What is identity? What's the point of being able to keep cultural roots?

Should all the architects in the world design the same cities with towers and shopping centres????

  

Although, in recent years, changes and transformations in urban development have occurred gradually and the facilities and the variety of instruments, materials and technologies have been limited, the dominant rules of urban planning and design have led to ideal cities with a well-formed harmonious and sustainable image and responsive spaces. But today, despite the growth and development of science and technology and the creation of modern concepts of sustainable development, we are unfortunately confronted with increasingly destructive, unjust and unstable cities.

 

The loss of identity, which plays a vital role in the urban structure, is one of the problems of modern urban spaces. The importance of this concern is related to the socio-cultural and conceptual aspects of urban spaces as a context for urban life. Therefore, urban sustainability is a challenge which should not only be considered on the basis of environmental concepts, but also its physical and conceptual aspects are important in order to present an integrative framework in urban planning and design. In addition, one of the most effective ways of achieving a sustainable urban form is to use the physical identity and hidden characteristics of traditional cities in order to use their design model and to update it in line with modern movements.

 

Therefore, in this project the role of identity in the quality of the city is first examined, then some general physical indicators of the sustainable city are designed using a traditional city approach, and finally, one of the traditional sustainable cities, as a case study, is selected and analysed according to its physical identity factors. Finally, this drawing concludes the importance of the sense of identity and physical elements in urban sustainability, especially in the new proposal of urban spaces.

  

We went to visit the Sustainable Cities Exhibition at The Crystal in London, and they hav an amazing wildlife garden outside! I have never seen so many ladybirds in such a small area. Ladybirds of all kinds were doing what ladybirds do in spring, including this lovely pair of Adonis ladybirds!

 

The Adonis Ladybird (Adonia variegata) has a more elongated shape, different face/thorax and is smaller and less common than the Seven-spot Ladybird.

Spots are sometimes fused. Legs are black (unlike the larger Harlequin). Like the Seven-spot and Harlequin, the Adonis eats aphids and garden pests.

The sustainable city ...

Do you remember back in the original Sim City(95?) where you could build those giant self-sustaining cities? That's what this place always reminds me of. This was taken several years ago at the Missouri Botanical Garden in Saint Louis. Beautiful place, and this is reason #1000 why I never delete my old unused RAWs.

Tahuna sewage upgrade project.

This extended outfall project, is to help pour poorly treated waste out to sea.

 

Sustainable cities don't simply pump their effluent into the sea!

But we are still doing it here in Dunedin New Zealand.

 

Beaches have been closed and we have restricted shellfish harvesting because of sewage contaminated beaches.

 

The new sewer outfall here at St Kilda beach will only bring things into line with a sewer of a third world country.

 

'The Crystal' (seen here middle right) is an exhibition venue based around showcasing sustainable cities. Designed by architects Wilkinson Eyre and owned by Siemens, it opened in 2012.

 

It sits on the far western edge of Victoria Dock and is adjacent to the northern cable car station of the Emirates Air Line, seen left here. This links it to Greenwich Peninsula and the O2 on the southern side of the Thames.

Santa Monica is a beachfront city in western Los Angeles County, California, United States. Situated on Santa Monica Bay, it is bordered on three sides by the city of Los Angeles – Pacific Palisades to the north, Brentwood on the northeast, Sawtelle on the east, Mar Vista on the southeast, and Venice on the south. The Census Bureau population for Santa Monica in 2010 was 89,736.

 

Due in part to an agreeable climate, Santa Monica became a famed resort town by the early 20th century. The city has experienced a boom since the late 1980s through the revitalization of its downtown core, significant job growth and increased tourism. The Santa Monica Pier remains a popular destination.

 

Santa Monica is one of the most environmentally activist municipalities in the nation. The city first proposed its Sustainable City Plan in 1992 and in 1994, was one of the first cities in the nation to formally adopt a comprehensive sustainability plan, setting waste reduction and water conservation policies for both public and private sector through its Office of Sustainability and the Environment. Eighty-two percent of the city's public works vehicles now run on alternative fuels, including nearly 100% of the municipal bus system, making it among the largest such fleets in the country. Santa Monica fleet vehicles and buses now source their natural gas from Redeem, a Southern California-based supplier of renewable and sustainable natural gas obtained from non-fracked methane biogas generated from organic landfill waste.

 

Santa Monica has adopted a Community Energy Independence Initiative, with a goal of achieving complete energy independence by 2020 (vs. California's already ambitious 33% renewables goal).

Ever since the breakaway of B11!!! from the mainland, Berryessa has been obsessed with the implications. However, she thought conquering the land would anger Lux, as it was her will to move the peninsula. Instead, Berryessa devoted her resources to exploring the sea floor underneath where the land had been. If it it was able to float so far away, it was plausible it was never attached to the planet beneath the sea to begin with.

 

What Aberryca found was marvelous. The skeleton of a gigantic behemoth of a sea creature was found in the depths of the abyss. Strange and unseen corals and kelps, along with other oversized lifeforms, were discovered in the area of the extinct beast.

 

Aberryca being one of the foremost authorities on genetic modification technology, could not wait to build a new facility to research the area and its current and past life. The Seed program was born.

 

With the facilities of a small city, Seed has a threefold purpose. The first is reverse bioengineer the life from the skeleton and surrounding life to learn as much as possible. The second was to take that data and weaponize it. The JUICE augmentation bulb contains DNA from the skeleton fused with modern species and enhanced by the transformative properties of JUICE. The resulting gestating creature is highly classified. The final purpose of the base is to serve as a self sustaining city in the extremely likely event of the end of the world in five weeks.

 

What will the new treasure trove of biological data yield for mighty Berryessa?

The Museum of Tomorrow (Portuguese: Museu do Amanhã) is a science museum in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was designed by Spanish neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava, and built next to the waterfront at Pier Maua. Its construction was supported by the Roberto Marinho Foundation and cost approximately 230 million reais. The building was opened on December 17, 2015 with President Dilma Rousseff in attendance.[1]

The main exhibition takes visitors through five main areas: Cosmos, Earth, Anthropocene, Tomorrow and Now via a number of experiments and experiences. The museum mixes science with an innovative design to focus on sustainable cities.[1]

Funded by the Rio city government with support from sponsors, the building attempts to set new standards of sustainability in the municipality. Compared with conventional buildings, designers say it uses 40% less energy (including the 9% of its power it derives from the sun), and the cooling system taps deep water from nearby Guanabara Bay. The structure looks set to be one of Rio’s most famous tourist sights. Its solar spines and fan-like skylight have been designed so that the building can adapt to changing environmental conditions.[1]

The museum has partnerships with Brazil’s leading universities, global science institutions and collects real-time data on climate and population from space agencies and the United Nations. It has also hired consultants from a range of related fields, including astronauts, social scientists and climate experts. It sits waterside in a port area that was left abandoned for decades, and is now being renovated with new office blocks, apartments and restaurants. The museum is part of the city's port area renewal for the 2016 Summer Olympics. [1]

City of Almere and MVRDV present Vision 2030

(Almere, June 26, 2009) Dutch new town Almere plans to grow with 60,000 houses, 100,000 working places and all related facilities. By this Almere will grow into the fifth city of the Netherlands in an effort to relief and to offer qualities to the urbanised west of the Netherlands. MVRDV was commissioned to collaborate with the city to design a concept structure vision to accommodate this growth. The growth will take place in four main areas: Almere IJ-land, a new island off the coast in the IJ-lake, Almere Pampus, a neighbourhood focussed on the lake and open to experimental housing, Almere Centre, an extended city centre surrounding the central lake, and Oosterwold, an area devoted to more rural and organic urbanism. Together the proposals form the new framework to accompany the growth of the city until 2030. Together with the entire board of city councilors and the mayor, Adri Duivesteijn, city councilor of Almere and Winy Maas of MVRDV, presented the concept structure vision to the ministers of Transport, Public Works and Water Management (V&W), Camiel Eurlings and minister of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment, Jacqueline Cramer (VROM) on June 26th. The design of IJland has been a collaboration with Adriaan Geuze of West8 and William McDonough of McDonough and Partners.

 

“The structure vision for Almere is more than an urban masterplan…” said Adri Duivesteijn, city councilor of Almere, “…it describes how the city can develop in economic, cultural and social terms. The expansion is not a quantitative effort. Even though the number of 60,000 new homes is impressive, the main objective is the addition of new qualities. Almere wants to serve the demand of the Randstad and at the same time needs the chance to develop into an ecologic, social and economically sustainable city”.

 

The Axis: Nowadays Almere is a city with 185,000 inhabitants, 30 years ago it was an empty stretch of land reclaimed from the sea. The growth will preserve and further expand Almere’s model of a poly-nuclear city. It will diversify the existing city by adding various densities, programs and characters that do not exist yet is the current situation,

The vision consists of four major development areas, each with their own character, logic and identity. These new area developments are connected by an infrastructural axis which connects the metropolitan area of Amsterdam with Almere. Between the two cities the Almere IJ-land (referring to IJ-lake) is a connector, literally as well as in economical and cultural perspective. The axis then leads to Almere Pampus, the Centre of Almere and Oosterwold in the east and will in the future be continued to connect Utrecht.

 

Almere IJ-land: Together with West 8 and William McDonough, MVRDV worked on the unique opportunity to design a series of urban and nature reserve islands. The new rail connection to Amsterdam and a needed ecological intervention in the IJ-lake offered the potential to propose the creation of a living area with 5,000 up to 10,000 homes, combined with this nature development. IJ-land combines ecological and infrastructural interventions with the possibility to live and work in a natural riparian environment. The island could also be part of the possible Dutch bid for the 2028 Olympic Games.

 

Almere Pampus: This area will combine the feeling of a coastal town with high density and make room for 20,000 homes, all streets are all leading to the boulevard at the lake. The existing maintenance harbour will be reused for leisure and floating villages. There will be a new train station with a plaza at the coast.

 

Almere Centre: The current centre will grow and extend to the southbank of the Weerwater , turning the central lake into the Weerwater-park and becoming in time the cultural and economical heart of the city. On the junction of the new axis, a motorway and the rail connection the motorway will be covered which makes it possible to develop up to 5,000 homes, offices and public amenities. The central station will be developed into an economical hub and will be surrounded with new program.

 

Almere Oosterwold: This large area in the east offers room for up to 18,000 new homes and a variety of functions such as business and retail centres. It will be developed following individual and collective initiatives, from small scale to large scale, with plots that are always surrounded by nature development, urban agriculture or local parks. The area will reserve areas for future development after 2030.

 

The vision 2030 is not a blueprint but a flexible development strategy. Duivesteijn: “It is a framework which can be filled in by the people of the city. By remaining flexible we create possibilities to adjust the plans to future opportunities.” Almere wants to develop according to this structure vision in order to become an ecological, social and economically sustainable city. For this large investments in infrastructure are needed to connect the city with in future 350,000 inhabitants to its surroundings and to Amsterdam

 

Winy Maas will remain involved in the further development of the concept structure vision in a supervising role. MVRDV has a long history of engagement with Almere: Earlier projects included two studies on new ways of organic urban development for Almere Hout and Almere Homeruskwartier, a study for the A6 Boulevard and the study for Pampus harbour, a neighbourhood of 500 floating dwellings. MVRDV’s Jacob van Rijs currently works on part of Olympiakwartier, a dense urban district of in total 220.000m2 mix use with public facilities.

 

O Museu do Amanhã é um museu construído no município do Rio de Janeiro, no Brasil. O prédio, projeto do arquiteto espanhol Santiago Calatrava, foi erguido ao lado da Praça Mauá, na zona portuária (mais precisamente no Píer Mauá). Sua construção teve o apoio da Fundação Roberto Marinho e teve o custo total de cerca de 230 milhões de reais. O edifício foi inaugurado em 17 de dezembro de 2015 recebeu cerca de 25 mil visitantes em seu primeiro final de semana de funcionamento.

O antigo píer desativado passou a abrigar uma construção pós-moderna, orgânica e sustentável que, atualmente, é um ícone da identidade local e cultural da cidade do Rio de Janeiro. A proposta da instituição é ser um museu de artes e ciências, além de contar com mostras que alertam sobre os perigos das mudanças climáticas, da degradação ambiental e do colapso social. O edifício conta com espinhas solares que se movem ao longo da claraboia, projetadas para adaptar-se às mudanças das condições ambientais. A exposição principal é majoritariamente digital e foca em ideias ao invés de objetos.[1] O museu tem parcerias com importantes universidades brasileiras e instituições científicas globais e coleta de dados em tempo real sobre o clima e a população de agências espaciais e das Nações Unidas. A instituição também tem consultores de várias áreas, como astronautas, cientistas sociais e climatologistas.

Como uma das âncoras do projeto de revitalização urbana chamado Porto Maravilha, o museu recebeu, em 2015, como doação antes de sua inauguração, a escultura Puffed Star II, do renomado artista norte-americano Frank Stella. O trabalho consiste de uma estrela de vinte pontas e seis metros de diâmetro que foi instalado no espelho d'água do museu, em frente à Baía de Guanabara. A escultura metálica, antes da doação para acervo permanente a céu aberto do museu, esteve em exposição na cidade de Nova York.

Um dos objetivos da construção do museu foi fortalecer a identidade cultural e internacional da cidade do Rio de Janeiro. A cidade do Cristo Redentorsempre foi muito conhecida pelas suas praias e eventos, como o carnaval, mas havia a necessidade do fortalecimento da paradiplomacia cultural. Outras cidades, como Londres e Paris, também são muito conhecidas por seus acervos culturais.[4] O Museu foi apresentado como um ícone da reurbanização da zona portuária.

Todi is a town and comune (municipality) of the province of Perugia (region of Umbria) in central Italy. It is perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the east bank of the river Tiber, commanding distant views in every direction.

 

In the 1990s, Richard S. Levine, a professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky, chose Todi as the model sustainable city, because of its scale and its ability to reinvent itself over time. After that, the Italian press reported on Todi as the world's most livable city.

One of the first "generation ships", the Colonial Voyager was designed to be a self-sustaining city in the stars, with a lush biodome to grow specially adapted plants and complete industrial manufacturing facilities in the event any part of the ship needed to be upgraded or replaced.

 

The vessel was never intended to land in its destination system--instead, a small portion of the hull could detach and become an atmospheric landing craft, capable of depositing colonists and their equipment to the surface and returning to the host ship for another load.

 

This didn't start out as a tribute to legoloverman, though he certainly deserves it. In actuality this ended up nothing like the idea it started out, instead as I worked on it I noticed it was taking on a variation of a Classic Space theme. The MOC grew organically as it went along, much like the ship itself as it traveled between stars.

 

I have more pictures, but they came out crappy so I'm going to have to either retake them or do some photo touch up. I'll have more angles up later.

We already knew it was good, and now Fitzroy Gardens has also won the Banksia Foundation’s Sustainable Cities Award for its depot redevelopment. ift.tt/2ymRLrM
