  • ‘The Human Scale’: We’re all human, so why aren’t we building cities for people? - Spacing Ottawa
    the possibility of the gigacity built for the car or precedents of how good design can help to make our metropolises more humane such as the pedestrianization of Times Square And while many of the red flags raised in the documentary are not new to those who make urbanism circles their home the film acts as an important albeit beautifully shot and highly stylized reminder of our need to be aware of the impact that our actions and decision will have as we shape our urban environments But perhaps most simply and poetically stated and acting as the theme throughout the film is the question of if we are human ourselves why are we not building our cities at the scale of the human or with people rather than cars finances or political rationale as our primary concern For as Chapter 5 states It is very cheap to be nice to people Gehl has made it the trademark of his practice to design in ways that encourage community and spontaneity engage people at an appropriate scale and speed and focus on the spaces between buildings as the areas which are meant to act as our truly public places and therefore require our greatest attention and philanthropy What is of most interesting locally however is the timing of the film s Ottawa premiere and its correspondence to Ottawa s Safe Streets proposal as one of twelve planning issues currently open for public consideration as a part of the Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 review of the City s Official Plan Transportation Master Plan and a host of other urban related city policies This recognition of the need to create streets that are designed to meet the needs of all people whether they choose to walk bike drive or take public transit

  • #TEDxElginSt: Is Ottawa having an identity crisis, or are we simply in need of a little self-discovery? - Spacing Ottawa
    such a TEDx show the change that is already beginning to happen in Ottawa It was the third session however curated around the notion of community that most closely united the theme of Rethink Rebuild with the event name of Elgin Street Beginning with local architectural theorist and space practitioner Sarah Gelbard graduate of Carleton s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism those in attendance were treated to a presentation on how space can become place in the line of philosopher Michel de Certeau Gelbard wittily explained that she loved architecture too much to be an architect and that while she was not a practicing architect she believed that her work indicated that she instead practices architecture As such her work in Ottawa centers around the appropriation of public spaces including parking spots and bus stops in which she creates installations or interruptions under the belief that place is practiced space Intrinsically for Gelbard architecture is what narrates that city and as such is never really finished Writer and editor Stephanie Vicente later shared an open and honest discussion about her own struggles with mental illness and the feelings of experiencing an identity crisis which was interesting related by Vicente to the apparent complex and lack of self esteem which Ottawa itself seems to be facing Vicente went on to co founded Herd Magazine as a form of expressive therapy and as a way to herd the cultural livestock she was surprised to find in a city often seen as only containing bureaucratic culture It was this dichotomy that propelled her to create the magazine after having explored the city upon regaining her own self confidence and after hearing that her friends were surprised to hear of all the creative events and outlets she was finding in such a government town Armed with the belief that Ottawa is in fact a lively creative hub if you look hard enough Vicente is working to help reshape Ottawa s own self identity just as she had worked hard to do for herself and is aiming to use this passion to better the creative community in Ottawa and bring together all corners of arts and culture together This insightful presentation thus worked to present the idea that Ottawa is perhaps in need of a renewed sense of self one that can only come from self discovery as well as less mutual exclusion between groups and Vicente drove this point home closing with a plea for Ottawans to keep both an open mind and eye out for the next thing to be a part of in the creative culture of Ottawa Other speakers at the event included Dave Conabree who spoke on the topic of the importance of crowd sourcing and social networking in the public service sector Jessica Tomlin Executive Director of Match International who shared 6 Myths About Women s Rights and her desire to transform our society Tabatha Soltay on how we can use game based learning to change how we
