making a difference from the streets

in my pocket, my phone buzzes. i'm in the middle of a conversation: it will have to wait...


it's my third year now: i am on a tour across the americas in a mobile urban design unit that brings ideas to sprout within communities about how to better their urban environment.


for too long, our cities have been built for capitalist productivity and efficiency, leaving our human living environments with very little human…

helping protesters through technology

i've returned to quebec after 7 months of absence to find my province sabotaged by politicians. with friends i've discussed a variety of guerilla actions, or even just the possibility to head to toronto this summer for the G4 summit, meet-up with activists and contest the decisions our leaders are taking in respect to our heritage, our resources and our fate.



this is perhaps the main reason why, in sudden frustration, i've decided to try and do something now, something…

Looking-up to urban heroes

one of the things i am currently fascinated with is public space as mass media. i beleive that our everyday environment should reflect the considerations of our time: it should compel us to be aware, critical and curious.


in my quest for a hero, i've found rebar, a group active in san francisco that has spawned such activities as…

The value of local wisdom

i am an object designer, an architect, an urban designer, a maker of things. also, i hate to be told by people how to do my job: i don't tell the plumber how to fix my sink, do i?


the problem is, i am only one person, with a limited amount of knowledge. when going to a different country, a different city, or even a different part of town, i can't claim to know anything about how people live, what they want, or what they need. and even if i needed to do…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
