London Underground: Dalston Renaissance

Nearby is the newly completed Dalston Barn. The French architectural collective EXYZT designed the simple timber-frame structure with five pitched roofs as part of a wider plan for the area that was developed by Muf Architecture/Art and J&L Gibbons Landscape Architects in consultation with the local community. Instead of a deterministic master plan for the area, the design team identified 76 micro-projects that build on the existing qualities of the neighborhood and gently inserted new amenities, including signage, plantings and play facilities. Local businesses, schools and community groups are involved with the management and afterlife of these projects.

Creative Class: Where the Creative Class Jobs Will Be

More than 35 million people are currently employed in creative class work in fields like science, technology, and engineering; business, finance, and management; law, health care, and education; and arts, culture, media, and entertainment. The creative class makes up roughly a third of total employment and accounts for more than half of all wages and salaries in America. Creative class employment has seen relatively low rates of unemployment during the course of the economic crisis. Creative class jobs will make up roughly half of all projected U.S. employment growth – adding 6.8 million new jobs by 2018

The zest in the west: Sydney’s sizzling centre

As the ugg boot has refashioned itself, so has Parramatta, which bills itself as the creative city. It has a $1.4 billion makeover of Civic Place in the pipeline, part of one of the state’s largest mixed-use urban renewal projects.

Parramatta City Council is also rolling out the red carpet next month with the launch of a Screen NSW program to entice filmmakers to use its historic buildings and pretty river setting as a backdrop for movies. A $100,000 plan to turn disused commercial buildings into spaces for artists to exhibit and sell their works recently won state and council funding.

Parramatta City Council plans to offer its downtown building foyers as display places for artists whose works feature in Sculpture by the Sea. It already provides 15 artists reduced rent at the studios it operates in Church Street Mall. it is hoped that the World Heritage listing of Old Government House and Parramatta Park this month will lead to a boom for tourism to Australia’s second-oldest city, which attracts about 35,000 to 50,000 international, interstate and local visitors a year.
