URBAN SCREENS AND ACTIVE DESIGN

slide2

OVERVIEW – ACTIVE DESIGN:

IN THE 21ST CENTURY, DESIGNERS PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN COMBATING THE MOST RAPIDLY GROWING PUBLIC HEALTH EPIDEMICS OF OUR TIME: OBESITY AND ITS IMPACT ON RELATED CHRONIC DISEASES SUCH AS DIABETES, HEART DISEASE, AND SOME CANCERS. TODAY, PHYSICAL INACTIVITY AND UNHEALTHY DIET ARE SECOND ONLY TO TOBACCO AS THE MAIN CAUSES OF PREMATURE DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES. A GROWING BODY OF RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT EVIDENCE-BASED ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN DESIGN STRATEGIES CAN INCREASE REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND HEALTHY EATING.

ACTIVE DESIGN ENCOURAGES DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS AND CITY PLANNERS TO LEVERAGE THE NATURAL RESOURCES OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT TO INJECT MODES OF DESIGN THAT GET PEOPLE MOVING.

OBJECTIVE:

ESTABLISH INTERCONNECTIONS BETWEEN WHAT APPEARS TO BE UNCONNECTED

CAPTURE INTERCONNECTIONS BETWEEN WHAT GETS CATEGORIZED AS BELONGING TO DIFFERENT DOMAINS (GLOBAL, URBAN, PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL, RICH AND POOR AREAS IN A CITY; CONNECT MICROENVIRONMENTS WITH GLOBAL SPAN

REDEFINE ACCESS AND CONTROL OF SCREENS

slide4

EMPLOY “URBAN SCREENS” AT PUBLIC PLAYGROUNDS IN UNDERDEVELOPED NEIGHBORHOODS AROUND THE WORLD.

THE SCREENS WILL FEATURE TRAINING VIDEOS FROM PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES WHO DEMONSTRATE A SPECIFIC WORKOUT THAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE MEANS OF THE HOST PLAYGROUND (IE. PULL UPS ON MONKEY BARS OR STAIR CLIMBING, BOX JUMPS).

THE “URBAN SCREENS” WILL INCLUDE A BUILT IN TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL ALLOW IT TO CONNECT WITH SMARTPHONES ENABLING USERS TO:

“CHECK IN” AT EACH SITE

TRACK OF THEIR ACTIVITY

CONNECT WITH USERS AT THE COMPLIMENTARY LOCAL AND GLOBAL SITES

UPLOAD THEIR OWN TRAINING ROUTINES

CHALLENGE

“DIGITAL REWARDS CAN BE EARNED AND REDEEMED AT PARTICIPATING THIRD PARTY VENDORS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA OF THE HOST PARK. (EX. SOMEONE WHO CHECKS IN 5 TIMES IN A WEEK EARNS A FREE WATER FROM THE LOCAL WHOLE FOODS)”

slide5

ATHLETES - INTERCONNECTIONS:

GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED – FAN’S BOTH LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY

DISENFRANCHISED NEIHBORHOODS

PUBLIC PARKS - DOMAINS:

FREE / ACCESS

EXIST LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY

TECHNOLOGY NEUTRALIZES THE UNFAMILIAR – CREATES CONNECTIONS

URBANS SCREENS GIVES A MICRO ENVIRONMENT GLOBAL SPAN

TECHNOLOGY/ SCREENS/ SMART PHONES – ACCESS AND CONTROL:

LOCAL COMMUNITY TO A GLOBAL COMMUNITY

LOCAL SUPPORT TO GLOBAL SUPPORT
