This is a real resource for people interested in alternative city development and research. Editors and authors Jochen Becker and Stephan Lanz and others have made publicly available major parts of their writing on Cities like Istanbul, Teheran, Farvelas in Rio and more. Among the books are "City og COOP", and "Space // Troubles". The books continue a strong German tradition for alternative but thoroughly researched urban investigations.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
