    "If you build a city that is great for an eight-year-old and for an 80-year-old, then you build a city that is going to be great for everybody. They’re like an indicator species. We need to stop building cities as if everybody in them is 30 years old and athletic."

    Gil Penalosa, the "pied piper for sustainable transportation," quoted in a Globe & Mail profile.

March’s theme is Hidden and in honor of it our Chicago chapter is having Matthew Hoffman speak. You might have heard about his You Are Beautiful project, a little sticker that sparked a big movement. Pictured is a mural he did in Rogers Park that covers an underpass. Find out more. →

    We love Solange Knowles’ shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.

    After the breakup she relocated to L.A. with Julez, and recorded a more adventurous second album, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. Filled with eclectic R&B, Motown, and blues influences and an equally diverse crew of collaborators including Cee-Lo Green, Pharrell Williams, and Mark Ronson, the record earned nearly unanimous critical praise, and even broke the Top 10 on the Billboard 200. Its success signaled the arrival of a new, liberated Knowles. She also revamped her wardrobe. Gone were the gaudy pink ruffles and awkward fedoras of her Solo Stardays, and in came a playful mix of bold prints and saturated colors, always accessorized with killer shoes and her now signature red lip. “You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts,” she says. “I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn’t quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work.” That epiphany took one simple thing: having a closet of her own, which she got when Julez started school in L.A. “I had to stabilize our lives and stay in one place,” she says. “It sounds silly, I know, but having space for my clothes made a huge difference. I was able to get organized, free myself of clutter, and develop a style that felt like me.”

    Peep the entire interview HERE.

    "Yes, there are many things that are wrong with the world. So many things to be against — but you can’t be against everything. At some point you have to begin to stand for something. Maybe the most important question is not what am I against, but what do I stand for? On my best days, I want to stand for love conquering a multitude of wrongs. I want to stand for forgiveness, for mercy, for beauty, for grace."

    Seven Apps to Improve Quality of Life in Cities

    It’s no secret that more and more people are using smart phones to get the most out of their urban experiences—at home or while traveling. Guardian Cities lists some of the best urban apps and launches a contest to find the best apps worldwide.

    Alex Hern provides a list of apps that “the Guardian Tech Desk can’t do without, in our own cities and others.”

    A few examples:

    • CityMapper “puts the combined efforts of four transit agencies to shame…” (i.e. New York, Berlin, London, and Paris). The app “uses public data to provide a best-in-class mapping app for getting you from A to B as quickly and cheaply as possible.”
    • London’s Best Coffee: “Blue Crow Media makes a number of apps that help very specific connoisseurs find their way around a city. As well as coffee apps for London and New York, it makes Craft Beer apps for the same two cities, and Burgerapp, which guides you to the best hamburgers in London.”

    In a separate article, Guardian Cities announces the AppMyCity! competition to discover and “embrace any new app that improves your urban experience, connects people and makes cities more fun, vibrant and sustainable places.”
