The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight
BY CHRIS HAWLEY
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"The Belt Line … will be the next phase in Buffalo’s sustainable development."
In The Belt Line: Hiding in Plain Sight from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 16, urbanist and preservationist, Chris Hawley, presents the Belt Line -- one of the most conspicuous and least-known features of Buffalo, NY. Each day, trains go by along it and people drive underneath and over it. It is the "third strand" in Buffalo's DNA, as important to the city's physical and economic geography as Joseph Ellicott's radial and grid plan and Frederick Law Olmsted's park and parkway system; as consequential to the city's development as the Erie Canal and Interstate Highway System.
The Belt Line was opened in 1883, with segments dating back to 1836. The rail line is 15 miles long, forming a continuous loop through Buffaloʼs downtown as well as the prominent industrial loft clusters that it helped to create. Today, the Belt Line's 12 million square feet of largely vacant or underutilized industrial space is the city's next frontier for sustainable development. Factory buildings are being recycled as mixed-use developments. These former industrial areas are becoming walkable centers again.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, July 27th, 2016.

A Guide to Post-Racial America and Urban Renewal in Genoa
Presentations Duante Beddingfield is a local writer whose work can be found in the Dayton Daily News and on the Welcome Dayton website. With his presentation (from PKN Dayton Vol. 10), Duante hopes to help guide us towards a post-racial America, by going through the "dos" and "don'ts" of having a black friend. Beatrice Moretti and Paola Sabbion are architects from URBAN LAB. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1), they cover a project called the new City Urban Planning. The project involved the announcement of the Genoa Urban Plan 2010 through the publication of the Urban Lab Notebooks, and the staging of the exhibition "Genoa Today, Genoa Tomorrow" in December 2011, an extraordinary instrument of participation and opportunity for discussion. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above, for PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7. It was designed by Francisco Riveros of Mundo Estudio. Photos We'll hopefully have more to share in the coming days, but for now here's a peek (above) at what the recent PKN Innsbruck Vol. 1 looked like -- and the event poster was posted to our Tumblr blog prior to the event. Calendar Tonight (July 19) we have St. Albert's first PKN, and there's a special edition PKN in Chicago. Tomorrow, it's Tijuana's turn to host its very first PKN, while Waterville has its Vol. 8.
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.

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.
