Toward a Global Localism {FAVEL issues} hypoxic ischemic brain injury recovery

Ralph spencer steenblik guest posting at flavelissues from wenzhou, china hypoxic brain injury recovery time where he is a professor of architecture in the wenzhou-kean university school of public architecture. He is writing this post as a set of observations and opportunities within his practice and pedagogy. This post focuses on manuel de sola morales’ idea of urban acupuncture within a chinese context, particularly in contrast the a tabula rasa approach. The article highlights the aedes, regions on the rise conference and the wenzhou wetlands studio, he is running with in collaboration with linnea moore and dean david mohney at wenzhou-kean university.

I found myself participating in the songyang, china, aedes conference called “ regions on the rise,” organized by hans anxiety attack causes diarrhea jurgen commerell, following an exhibition curated by eduard kogel.


The subject of the conference highlighted the work of xu tiantian (徐甜甜), with an exhibition of her work (debuting in berlin in 2017) and site visits to several of her local projects. She made it a life passion to revitalize the remote and rural area called songyang county. The county is home to a large number of traditional villages unscathed by modern industrialization. It is only second in the country in number of “traditional villages”.

Let me contrast these efforts with my current home town of wenzhou, china; only three hours east (on the coast) by car from songyang. Wenzhou is a beautiful place with an amazing network of natural and ancient artificial transportation canals. The canals span across the hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy prognosis oujiang / wenruitang river delta. Unfortunately, with the transportation developments of the industrial revolution, the efficiencies of the canals as a primary transportation network have become surpassed by the automobile. Therefore, the canals have become less valued and have not been as meticulously maintained. In some instances the canals have been neurofeedback anxiety testimonials filled in and replaced with roads and insensitive high-rise developments. Often the villages are cleared from the landscape to make way for such high-rises. My colleague vincent peu duvallon describes the phenomenon as a timeline with several frozen instances. You simultaneously see the traditional village, the demolition rubble, and the relocation towers; all visible from a single vantage point.

Within the political climate in china, often fast paced developments occur sweeping the landscape, overlooking the details, and potentially ending up with somewhat of a simcity problem, with anxiety test nhs infrastructure lacking the soul brought by local initiated buy in. This development pattern may be similar to the postwar scenario in the united states (US), and possibly throughout the globe. Within the US, a primary method for addressing the need for housing near cities was through suburbia. This pattern has continued as a modus operandi, turning a dream into a commuting, pollution, and low density land use nightmare. There a number of issues or problems related to common, suburban, low density, developer que es anoxia cerebral driven, sprawl (which occupies much of the current surroundings of global metropolitan areas). NPR produced a series entitled beyond sprawl, which highlights some of these challenges. At the conference in songyang remy sietchiping, of UN-HABITAT, introduced many of the documents surrounding the united nations efforts regarding urbanism. He spoke about the ways that the “ new urban agenda” can aid in efforts to create a more intelligent urban fabric from the CBD to the rural village. He also discussed sustainable development goal 11 to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”

Urban acupunctural strategy (originally conceived by manuel de sola morales 2) is also different from the top down brute force precedent of bilbao social anxiety testimonials, which used the prestige of the architects, and the monumentality of the projects to solidify the global position. Ideally an acupunctural strategy starts with grassroot participation, employing a caring detail cognizant designer in creating catalytic interventions. This requires intentional actors willing to act and improve the community starting with the details, from the bottom up. Then having the vision to build in mechanisms for institutional momentum. Connecting these actors with thoughtful designers is critical.

Within the architectural design studios at wenzhou-kean university, our efforts focus on addressing issues of community anxiété engagement, along with a focus on reinvigorating historic infrastructure. The wenzhou wetlands studio focuses on engaging the wetlands canal network in an effort to produce key catalysts for the local economy, optimistically, in an effort to circumvent the threat of replacement with placeless relocation towers. As we continue educating young architects in training, we hope they will build on this work of sensitive interventions, toward a global localism.
