Spinapp

Our research on the issues of space, flows and interaction confirms that perceived security in public transport cannot be satisfactorily addressed from a technical point of view only
It requires knowledge and understanding of the context, culture, social and economic dynamics of the station environment and surroundings, as well as an understanding of the mechanisms and behaviour of users.
SpinApp integrates security, energy and environment data and enables owners, developers, facility managers to calculate the cost of refurbishment and climate resilience adaptation.

Adapt, focus, engage, here comes post-COVID-19

Despite the deep pain caused by the loss of many dear ones due to this pandemic, COVID-19 can also be seen as an occasion to re-think, re-design, re-view and roll-out. To be sure, the lock-down and confinement have generated improved air quality, lower noise levels, more frequent walking, jogging, walking and cycling, shopping for fresh food and groceries in local stores as well as stepped up our digital connectivity.

Cities, energy & waste

In 1960 the World counted two mega cities (with populations of over 10 million), New York and Tokyo; in 2011, the number had risen to twenty two. Today there are 47 megacities in the world. Most of them are located in Asia. The largest are the metropolitan areas of Tokyo, Shanghai, and Jakarta, each having over 30 million inhabitants. China alone has 15 megacities, India has six. The front-runner, as the fastest urbanising continent, is Africa.
