La bellezza delle città viste dall’alto
Nel libro, oltre alle città, vengono immortalati dettagli, paesaggi, landmarks o infrastrutture. In questo post invece la nostra selezione riguarda porzioni urbane di paesi più o meno piccoli.
Uno spettacolo incredibile a mio parere, ovviamente questa non è una scala umana, e in passato nessuno avrebbe mai visto la propria città da questa distanza quasi come se fosse il disegno di un architetto-urbanista.
Oggi invece a noi basta una connessione internet e possiamo viaggiare ovunque nel mondo e immaginarci di essere in qualsiasi posto in qualsiasi momento.

Today our thoughts are with the people of Ankara, Turkey after they suffered a brutal bombing attack yesterday in one of the city’s public squares. Ankara is home to more than five million residents and serves as the country’s capital. Residential housing in the northern section of the city is visible in this Overview.

The Island Walk neighborhood in Naples, Florida, USA is home to approximately 3,305 people. Because many cities in the state of Florida contain master-planned communities, often built on top of waterways in the latter half of the twentieth century, there are a number of intricate designs such as this one that are visible from the Overview perspective.

The planned city of La Plata, the capital city of the Province of Buenos Aires, is characterized by its strict grid pattern. At the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris, the new city was awarded two gold medals for the “City of the Future” and “Better performance built.” /// This is the fifth post in our week focused on urban planning /// Source imagery: @digitalglobe
Here’s one of my favorite images from the 'Where We Design' chapter in “Overview”. The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort. The rationale for this construction was that an attack on any individual wall could be defended from the two adjacent star points by shooting the enemy from behind. The three rings that surround Palmanova were completed in 1593, 1690, and 1813. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant, source imagery: @digitalglobe
