How a video game might help us build better cities | Karoliina Korppoo

With more than half of the world population living in cities, one thing is undeniable: we are an urban species. Part game, part urban planning sketching tool, “Cities: Skylines” encourages people to use their creativity and self-expression to rethink the cities of tomorrow. Designer Karoliina Korppoo takes us on a tour through some extraordinary places users have created, from futuristic fantasy cities to remarkably realistic landscapes. What does your dream city look like?

  1. I’m sorry, I just can’t listen to this. I don’t know if it’s accent, poor English or the fact that she is suuuuuper nervous so she can’t even pronounce ONE word correctly but it actually hurts my brain to try to listen to this.
    I hear words I can tell from how she says other words that she SHOULD be able to say normally but for some strange reason she adds and removes entire letters and sounds from words.
    Sometimes I feel like she only says HALF the word and sometimes she says the word plus another half of something that shouldn’t even be there. Sorry, but get someone who can actually TALK to make a speech. Gosh almighty.

  2. My girlfriend told me to stop playing Pokemon as it was childish.

    I started thrashing about and roared “You don’t have enough badges to control me!”
