Piers Fawkes: About The My Ideal City Project & How You Can Contribute
PSFK helps launch MyIdealCity, a crowdsourced plan to redesign a city in South America.
A team of partners have launched a global conversation that will lead to a real plan to redevelop a city. The foundation to this project is The My Ideal City site which is a place to for conversation for everyday people around trends in urban living across the world. The discussion will ultimately inspire a redevelopment plan that will presented to city planners in Bogota.
Over the next six months, W Radio in Bogota and PSFK.com will be discussing trends around the future of the city in Spanish and English respectively. Each week both parties will discuss the same urban living trend – and each day we will ask our audiences to respond to the same questions via Twitter and on MyIdealCity.com. The answers to these questions will be gathered and later reviewed by architect Winka Dubbeldam and urban planner Gary Hack as they work on a plan to redevelop a neighborhood in downtown Bogota.
