This start up idea is about selling online organic products (fresh vegetables and more).

The idea is to sell food that comes from organic and certificated local farms.

The grocery order will be placed online through the website , the customer will select products by quantity and then will select the delivery address, day and suitable time slot. 

The grocery bill will be paid once the shopping will reach the customer's place by cash or credit card.

A geared bicycle will be the means of transport.

ORTOCICLO wants to create a direct connection between small local farmers and local customers.

This idea was born due my deep trust in eating seasonal food free from any kind of toxic and harmful substances for the human body and the environment.

Another goal of ORTOCICLO is to give a chance to the customers to be informed about where the food they eating comes from and who and how made it.

Minor Urban Disasters

Each day we pass by what Ariel Schlesinger calls "Minor Urban Disasters". These can include, but are not limited to: lazy constructions, acts of frustration taken out on physical objects, and discarded or misplaced products.  In this edition of Presentation of the Day from PKN Tokyo Vol. 74, he points out the fact that most of us tend to overlook the humor, or sadness that can be found when coming into contact with these small peculiarities. One must have sympathy for the inanimate, for these senseless acts of human savagery and carelessness are vicious: cinder block heedlessly used to fill a circular window in Tel Aviv, a tossed-aside umbrella bent by some angry soul, bricks once painted with signs of guidance improperly re-situated, road signs knocked back by trucks not suited for the clearance height. Won't you open your heart to those who cannot defend themselves?

Urban City Development in China

If there ever was a crystal ball into China's urban future, this is it: Thomas Hussey discusses China's current growth in urbanization. As we see in "Urban City Development in China" from PKN Chicago Vol. 25, although there are several challenges, such as outdated buildings, over-engineered highways, and pollution to deal with, they hope to redevelop the city, connect cities together, and create new cities entirely that would come to be potential solutions to those probelms.

Transport and Urban Planning for People

Cars take up a lot of space and cost a lot of money, we need better ways to get people around cities. As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, "People need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices." Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. In "Transport and Urban Planning for People" from a special urban edition of PKN Auckland, we see that Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.

Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century

 "My thesis is to rethink how to plan cities in the future and reveal that these vernacular settlements are not frozen in time." In "Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century" from PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 150, Architect Elaine Kwong, backed by success stories of today’s fastest-growing urban collectives in China, shares with us fresh perspectives of the term ‘vernacular’. Elaine spent the last couple of years at Harvard University researching alternate ways of urban development that can enable people to be agents of their environments rather than passive beneficiaries or victims. 建築家のElaine Kwongさんは、ハーバード大学で数年過ごした後、社会に対し積極的に環境について伝えるため、都市開発の代替方法を研究しました。 今日の中国で急成長している都市集団の成功事例研究に裏打ちされ、Elaineさんは私たちと共に「vernacular」という言葉の新しい視点を共有したいと考えています。
