    • 9. 4Square Worldwide n/a http://foursquare.com Does 4Square tell the story of the users of a City? Foursquare is a mobile application that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. It is a friend-finder, a social city guide and a game that challenges users to experience new things, and rewards them for doing so. Foursquare lets users "check in" to a place when they're there, tell friends where they are and track the history of where they've been and who they've been there with. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 10. TED Worldwide http://www.ted.com Do you have an idea of how the world should be? Tell your story. TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker "ideas worth spreading," talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been reengineered around TEDTalks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world's most inspiring voices. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 11. Hotel Ballymun Ballymun, Dublin 2007 http://www.hotelballymun.com/ Guests at Hotel Ballymun were able to appreciate the spectacular views over Dublin, just weeks before these views ceased to exist. In addition to the nine individually designed, single and double bedrooms there was a garden room, a tv lounge, communal kitchen, reception area, breakfast and seating area, as well as an intimate conference and events centre. The rooms were furnished with one-off pieces, customised and remodelled from existing furniture, which were designed and made by people from the Ballymun area, during a two month series of workshops with Irish design duo Sticks and recent RCA graduate Jonathan Legge. A diverse programme of cultural and social events took place in the Hotel. Talks, live art and music performances took place at the Hotel throughout the day and in the evenings. There was also a chance for the general public to take the lift up to view Hotel Ballymun. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

    • 24. Irish Landmark Trust, Ireland http://irishlandmark.com/ The Irish Landmark Trust Ltd. was founded in 1992 with a remit to save interesting and unusual 'landmark' properties throughout the whole of Ireland and to re-use them, once restored, as good quality self catering holiday accommodation. At its heart is the principle that the structure iself is of prime importance and any interventions must respect this. Their buildings are varied, from lighthouses, to gatelodges, to tower houses, to school houses, to mews, which - because of their individuality, even eccentricity - are unsuitable as permanent residences. But often in remote and delightful parts of the country, they are ideal retreats for those seeking a short stay in fascinating and sensitively restored buildings. Further, they see themselves as problem solvers. Owners, private and public, with responsibility for important buildings are faced with the dual task of restoring and finding sustainable uses for them. By taking a building on lease we are enabled to restore it, and can sustain it on short-term lettings until the expiry of the lease (typically, 50 years) when the fully restored building reverts to the owner. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 25. Guilt Forgiveness, Worldwide N/A Egs... Carbon Offset Websites Catholic Church Indulgences 'Guilt-forgiveness' programmes are often very good at making money, but usually do no solve the underlying problem. They allow people to act in a way that is often detrimental to the 'commons' but lets them feel OK with it as they are 'forgiven' once they pay for it. The organisers often cite the excuse that the revenue generated will help others. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 26. Green Graveyard Co., Ireland / Worldwide N/A http://www.greencoffinsireland.com/natural-burial.html People sometimes talk about where they would like their final resting place to be. Often they describe a green place with trees, flowers and wildlife in abundance. They describe a beautiful and unspoiled place where their family and friends can visit and be at peace. Conventional Irish Graveyards fall a long way short of these wishes. Gone are the marble headstones and concrete surrounds that are common place in Irish graveyards, replaced instead by a small grave marker and the planting of a native Irish tree. Visitors walk along pathways surrounded by native Irish trees and flowers, spotting wildlife in their newly created habitats. These natural burial grounds are sacred and natural places where people of all faiths and those without any religion will find a beautiful final resting place. Allowing your funeral to be used as a conservation tool will leave a legacy of care and respect for our planet. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 27. The WIR Bank, Switzerland, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIR_Bank The WIR bank is a not for profit bank. It serves the interest of the clients, not the bank itself. It is a very stable system, not prone to failure as the current banking system is. It remains fully operational even in times of general economic crisis. WIR may have contributed to the remarkable stability of the Swiss economy, as it dampens downturns in the business cycle. One of the remarkable things about it is that it issues its own currency which becomes popular when the Swiss Franc is doing badly, and vice-versa. In that way it avoids the economic peaks and troughs that Ireland has experienced in the past decade. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 28. LPs and Apples, Amsterdam A music shop in Amsterdam sells LPs inside and apples outside. He makes his profit from the apples, but loves the LPs. Some of the more interesting businesses in the world bring their income in through a 'side door'...for example Google (provides all sorts of services, but incomes in through ads...when do you ever think of Google as an advertising company...certainly not your first thought anyway! 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 29. Anti-squatting, Amsterdam N/A It's legal in Amsterdam to squat. Squatting isn't particularly interesting and can often be negative. However it induces 'anti-squatting' whereby the owner of the property let's someone or a group use the space in order to prevent squatting. In return they keep the street alive (no vacant properties), and often are required (as one of their conditions) to actually give something back to the street as the landlord wants the area to get/keep a good name. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 30. Iveagh Trust, Artisan Cottages, Cadburys ‘model village’, Guinnesses. Ireland and UK 2009 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iveagh_Trust http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadstone_%28Dublin%29_railway_station http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_village These were all models of businesses considering the lifestyles of their employees. As your family grew, you moved to a larger house. As your children moved out, you down-sized. It was an early form of affordable housing and rewarded tenants who treated their propery well. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 31. Wad River/Emerald Co-Op, Dublin Completion Due 2011 http://www.wadriver.org/emerald.html A group of people set up the Emerald Co-Op with a view to creating a fully-sustainable housing development and community for themselves. It is onsite and should be completed in the first half of 2011.It will probably be one of the best examples of ecological and sustainable housing in Ireland when finished. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 32. The Village Cloughjordan, Ireland Under Construction http://thevillage.ie/ Similar to the Emerald Housing Co-Op, this was formed by a charity with the aim of developing a sustainable community which would also serve as an example to the remainder of Ireland. Located in North Tipperary, the very large site was designed in three areas – 1/3 for housing, 1/3 for food production, and 1/3 for 'wild' – according to ecological principles. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 33. Floating Alotments, Amsterdam N/A http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/4736389/Allotments-on-canals-to-be-offered-to-public.html In a city with copious amounts of water, it may have been an obvious step to create floating alotments. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 34. Treasure Hunt, Moscow, Russia, Recent Years 'Dozor' is a treasure hunt tha t takes place across Russia every two weeks. It's aimed at adults and much of the idea is the element of speed and danger. For example it takes place at night and many of the clues are hidden under water or in underground tunnels etc. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 35. Peer-to-Peer Tech. n/a n/a Peer-to-peer technologies are about to greatly open up a world of sharing stuff. Sharing books, sharing cars, sharing gramaphones. Perhaps they're on the rise as people are getting used to sharing things online, so it's a natural step to then share them offline. It reduces environmental impacts and costs for the user. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
    • 36. AVEGO Worldwide n/a http://www.avego.com/ Avego is a peer-to-peer carpooling iPhone app. If you're driving somewhere you can offer to share your car (via the app). It shows you who's looking for a lift along your route and puts you together. After your trip you both 'rate' each other (did they turn up on time, were they friendly, etc) and this information is then available for future users. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

Some also wanted a hiding place until a six-year-old girl pointed out that “you can’t do that because everyone would know where it is”. “ How do you make hills out of wood?” he asked, scratching his head.

TASC Ireland n/a http://www.tascnet.ie/ TASC is an independent think-tank dedicated to combating Ireland’s high level of economic inequality and ensuring that public policy has equality at its core. Economic inequality is not confined to income inequality, but exists across many areas of the economy - for example, asset ownership, wealth, taxation, health, housing and education. Thus, fighting economic inequality is about ensuring that economic interests are rendered subordinate to the common good in areas such as education, health and welfare. It is also about redistributing risk, wealth and power. This, in turn, requires increased accountability and transparency at all levels. The primary focus of TASC’s current work is to identify solutions to the present economic crisis aimed at achieving recovery with equality. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

Composed out of polygonal, polypropylene, photoreactive segments which respond to ultra-violet light, OR’s captivating powers lie in its capacity to adapt its appearance to changes in weather and daylight. Its "skin" emits flourishing hues of blue and green when exposed to sunlight and maintains a subtle translucent white when the installation is overcome by shade. Best of all, OR’s effects are not limited to daytime - at night, it generates ample atmosphere by becoming a "psychedelic chandelier" flooding its surrounding areas with a dramatic disco of lights. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

The entry point for people new to the network for using Dublin Bus in particular is very high. It demands existing geographic knowledge of the city and putting up with a confusing layout of bus connections. A city centre public transport map has been missing for years. In collaboration with other academic researchers of sustainable public transport alternatives for Dublin, a network of Bus Rapid Transit connections was developed. These routes are distributed throughout the city. Furthermore, these measures allowed for simplifications and cost effective upgrades to the network. As part of my MA I created a set of new public transport maps that match international high standards. A city centre public transport map with this level of clarity and detail has never existed in Dublin. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

Secondly, we have been working in community development projects as a volunteer and in a paid capacity for many years, and we could witness how people we were working with were isolated but had a great potential once they were given opportunities. we decided then to combine our environmental awareness with the social inclusion via a medium – the bicycle – that appears to us like being a very promising transportation solution to our congested city. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

It encourages traffic engineers, urban planners and experts from other fields to consult with users of public space when planning and designing streets and squares in both built and non-built environments. The concept shares some characteristics with Living streets. Shared space removes the traditional segregation of motor vehicles, pedestrians and other road users. Conventional road priority management systems and devices such as kerbs, lines, signs and signals are replaced with an integrated, people-oriented understanding of public space, such that walking, cycling, shopping and driving cars become integrated activities. 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City

There are two types and the referendums are said, by their adversaries, to slow politics down. On the other hand, empirical scientists, e.g. Bruno S. Frey among many, show that this and other instruments of citizens' participation, direct democracy, contribute to stability and happiness. The votes on referendums are always held on a Sunday, typically three or four times a year, and in most cases, the votes concern several referendums at the same time, often at different political levels (federal, cantonal, municipal). 17/09/10 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City
