I wrote a book chapter about Lautner's houses being used as sets for pornography. Beautifully edited clip! I can't believe it hasn't been viewed more! http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/archiporn.pdf

The video was kindly filmed and produced by Gus Potts, a video documentary maker specialising in architecture, urbanism, urban cycling and place making. 

The blog posts I read from are here:

Below are my sources in the order I refer to them in the lecture:

Every 20 minute bike trip = AUD$14.30 to Australian economy http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/infrastructure/mcu/urbanpolicy/active_travel/files/infra1874_mcu_active_travel_report_final.pdf

Cycling worth DKK1.22 per km to Danish economy
Copenhagen City of Cyclists Bicycle Account, 2010http://www.cycling-embassy.dk/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Bicycle-account-2010-Copenhagen.pdf


5 to 1 return on bike infrastructure investment in Portland OR 
(Fuel and health savings, plus value of saved lives)

More discretionary trips in Portland OR

People associate transit with anxiety:

Cycling controls weight, where walking does not:
Lusk et al., (2010) “Bicycle Riding, Walking and Weight Gain in Premenopausal Women” Archives of Internal Medicine June 28:170(12):1050-1056

Barrier protected cycle tracks are safer and more popular;

Concepts borrowed from my friend and colleague Anne Lusk include the idea that bikes are "social bridges" helping us meet (as she uses it here: http://www.pinebank.org/images/AnneLusk_Bio.pdf) and her interest in Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET) scores in assessing built environments. Here's a look at her most recent work on that topic: http://faculty.washington.edu/abassok/bikeurb/resources/presentations/lusk.pdf

Tim, why didn't you take the footpath as well?

My bike is the width of the pavement, and the road round there is actually fairly quiet, fortunately. (It's not overly clear, but me & youngest are on the Bakfiets there.)

Thanks BikeHugger. I noticed a spike in the number of hits to my blog thanks to you!
 
Ramps, Not Lifts

Instead of lifts in apartment buildings, what if there were ramps that cyclists rode up to their room... Somewhat related, Rem Koolhaus' design for the Seattle Public Library includes a ramp to browse books instead of floors with stairs....
