Posted By Olivia Chen On October 2, 2009 @ 4:15 pm In Blog links | No Comments
Last week, Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG  asked Mason White of InfraNet Lab  for his thoughts on the growing interest in infrastructure and planning. White reflected that designers today that are looking to positively impact the built environment, and are subsequently thinking about the bigger picture rather than object-orientated thinking. So if you love architecture, and are curious about the larger systems at work at the city scale — and you want make sure it is environmentally conscious, take a peek at the initiatives and innovations that were covered this week below.
Mother Nature Network  tells us about a program in New York City that will train building managers  in the latest green building practices.
Good Magazine  reminds us that there are several components to creating more livable cities .
Green Options  says that England  and China  have new transportation projects: ecowordly  says England has a dual plan that include bikes and trains . cleantechnica  says China is funding a high-speed rail .
(Oh, and Happy Birthday, Worldchanging !)
