Across the world, cities are encouraging cycling to make their centers livable again.
Could cycling actually become a key organizing principle for future urban growth and the design of new buildings? What would cities designed for cycling look like and feel like? What is needed to make the perfect cycling city?
In Velotopia: The Production of Cyclespace in Our Minds and Our Cities, architectural theorist and historian Steven Fleming, a leading international figure in bicycle urbanism and author of the bestselling Cycle Space (2013), argues that the best-connected cities in the future will be those that put cycling before walking and public transport. According to Fleming, cities organized around cycling will be greener and healthier, but also fairer and more accessible than today’s cities―more productive, comfortable, social and fun. In this volume, Fleming dares readers to think big, to radically reimagine cities and city life around movement on two wheels.
The first bike-centric model of urban planning and building design, Velotopia is a book for designers, planners, students, advocates and the general reader―all those shaping cities and the built environment who imagine a future for the cycling city.
Octopussy Year: 1983 Director: John Glen Series Rank: #24 Year Rank: #120 Oscar Nominations: none Nighthawk Nominations: none Bond Girl: Maud Adams (Octopussy), Kristina Wayborn (Magda) Bond Villain: Louis Jourdan (Kamal Khan), Kabir Bedi... It had been the directorial debut of John Glen, who had edited three previous Bond films. With Glen returning for the next film, could, perhaps they do it again. The final two Moore films would be the worst of the lot, filled with jokes, lackluster villains, unimpressive Bond girls and a Bond who was clearly too old for the role. And I have a hard time deciding which one is worse. This is much better than the other Roger Moore films. ” When we got to Octopussy , she just could not contain her disbelief at what her eyes were seeing. What is wrong with this film. Yes, it’s the title of a Bond short story by Ian Fleming, but it works for a Bond short story. As a film title, and a character name, it’s just ridiculous and it sound more ridiculous every time someone in the film says it. Yet, it’s far from the most ridiculous thing in this film. How about Louis Jourdan as the primary villain (already a silly idea) who’s an exiled Afghan prince. How about when Bond escapes his palace (why, exactly, does an exiled Afghan prince have a castle in India. At one point Bond dresses in a gorilla suit to hide from one of the villains. If only he could have hidden this whole film. The story is ridiculous, the performances are pretty terrible and even the action scenes (like getting chased through the crowded streets of India on what is essentially a golf cart) aren’t particularly good. This film isn’t just bad for a Bond film – it starts to get down into the range of simply being a bad film. Now, at the risk of sounding sexist, although writing an appreciation of James Bond films has already put me at the risk of sounding sexist, one of the things you can generally look forward to in a Bond film is the Bond girl, the eye candy.
