An innovative way to give new life to old tires: In Milwaukee, two students are trying to connect two neighborhoods via an old rail line. And they’re using the old tires the future park is littered with to make it more than just a gravel path.
If you’re looking for the beating heart of the digital age — a physical location where the scope, grandeur, and geekiness of the kingdom of bits become manifest—you could do a lot worse than Lenoir, North Carolina. This rural city of 18,000 was once rife with furniture factories. Now it’s the home of a Google data center.
La Trobe University’s planning and community development program and student association, Plan B, has cleaned up at the Planning Institute of Australia’s (PIA) annual Victorian awards, walking away with two titles.
‘We are the only university to win awards in two categories. For a program that has only been in existence for six years this is a real affirmation of the coming of age of the program and consolidates our position as a leader and innovator in the planning community,’ said Mr Budge.
Mr Budge said he was particularly delighted with the students’ win in the coveted Public Engagement and Community Planning Award, which is selected based on initiatives in best practice public engagement that achieve an outstanding contribution to social planning practice and outcomes.
‘Plan B, the La Trobe University Student Planners Association is to be commended for the initiatives they have developed and implemented in their communities that have led to this award. The future certainly looks bright for these motivated and talented students,’ said Mr Budge.

Anastassia Elias creates beautiful little worlds inside of loo paper rolls. She uses manicure scissors and a cutter to carve tiny paper shapes of the same color as the roll. She aims to create the illusion that the paper shapes are part of the roll. Afterwards she carefully arranges the paper animals, men, trees, forms and objects inside of the round shape with a tweezer so that they won´t overlap each other and to make best use of the incidence of light. Elias is 36 years old and studied philology and journalism, she lives in Paris and works as a full-time artist and illustrator, focusing mainly on paper collages and paintings.
