1 WILL PERKINS MEDIATED ENVIRONMENTS URBAN SCREENS AND ACTIVE DESIGN

2 OVERVIEW – ACTIVE DESIGN: IN THE 21ST CENTURY, DESIGNERS PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN COMBATING THE MOST RAPIDLY GROWING PUBLIC HEALTH EPIDEMICS OF OUR TIME: OBESITY AND ITS IMPACT ON RELATED CHRONIC DISEASES SUCH AS DIABETES, HEART DISEASE, AND SOME CANCERS. TODAY, PHYSICAL INACTIVITY AND UNHEALTHY DIET ARE SECOND ONLY TO TOBACCO AS THE MAIN CAUSES OF PREMATURE DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES. A GROWING BODY OF RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT EVIDENCE-BASED ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN DESIGN STRATEGIES CAN INCREASE REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND HEALTHY EATING. ACTIVE DESIGN ENCOURAGES DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS AND CITY PLANNERS TO LEVERAGE THE NATURAL RESOURCES OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT TO INJECT MODES OF DESIGN THAT GET PEOPLE MOVING. NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION, ACTIVE DESIGN GUIDELINES,

3 OBJECTIVE: ESTABLISH INTERCONNECTIONS BETWEEN WHAT APPEARS TO BE UNCONNECTED CAPTURE INTERCONNECTIONS BETWEEN WHAT GETS CATEGORIZED AS BELONGING TO DIFFERENT DOMAINS (GLOBAL, URBAN, PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL, RICH AND POOR AREAS IN A CITY; CONNECT MICROENVIRONMENTS WITH GLOBAL SPAN REDEFINE ACCESS AND CONTROL OF SCREENS

4 EMPLOY “URBAN SCREENS” AT PUBLIC PLAYGROUNDS IN UNDERDEVELOPED NEIGHBORHOODS AROUND THE WORLD. THE SCREENS WILL FEATURE TRAINING VIDEOS FROM PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES WHO DEMONSTRATE A SPECIFIC WORKOUT THAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE MEANS OF THE HOST PLAYGROUND (IE.

THE “URBAN SCREENS” WILL INCLUDE A BUILT IN TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL ALLOW IT TO CONNECT WITH SMARTPHONES ENABLING USERS TO: “CHECK IN” AT EACH SITE TRACK OF THEIR ACTIVITY CONNECT WITH USERS AT THE COMPLIMENTARY LOCAL AND GLOBAL SITES UPLOAD THEIR OWN TRAINING ROUTINES CHALLENGE “DIGITAL REWARDS CAN BE EARNED AND REDEEMED AT PARTICIPATING THIRD PARTY VENDORS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA OF THE HOST PARK. (EX. SOMEONE WHO CHECKS IN 5 TIMES IN A WEEK EARNS A FREE WATER FROM THE LOCAL WHOLE FOODS)”

5 ATHLETES - INTERCONNECTIONS: GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED – FAN’S BOTH LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY DISENFRANCHISED NEIHBORHOODS PUBLIC PARKS - DOMAINS: FREE / ACCESS EXIST LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY TECHNOLOGY NEUTRALIZES THE UNFAMILIAR – CREATES CONNECTIONS URBANS SCREENS GIVES A MICRO ENVIRONMENT GLOBAL SPAN TECHNOLOGY/ SCREENS/ SMART PHONES – ACCESS AND CONTROL: LOCAL COMMUNITY TO A GLOBAL COMMUNITY LOCAL SUPPORT TO GLOBAL SUPPORT
