Navigation in Swift
Every app that doesn't only consist of one single UI needs some form of navigation - to enable users to move between different screens and to display information or react to events. This week, let's take a look at a few different options for dealing with navigation in Swift apps, focusing on iOS this time.

An inversion of nature: how air conditioning created the modern city | Cities | The Guardian
The architect Rem Koolhaas called this phenomenon “Junkspace”, a “product of the encounter between escalator and air conditioning, conceived in an incubator of sheetrock … always interior, so extensive that you rarely perceive limits.” In the Gulf and China as in much of the US, the mall became the principal gathering place, being a zone where large numbers could comfortably pass their time, leaving streets to be occupied by air conditioning’s mechanical ally, the automobile.

Air conditioning is anti-social. It buys its owner comfort at the cost of shifting the surplus heat somewhere else

In Pursuit of Production Minimalism — Brandur Leach
Over time, technologies are added, but are rarely removed. Left unchecked, production stacks that have been around long enough become sprawling patchworks combining everything under the sun. This effect is dangerous:

More parts means more cognitive complexity. If a system becomes too difficult to understand then the risk of bugs or operational mishaps increases as developers make changes without understanding all the intertwined concerns.

Nothing operates flawlessly once it hits pr...
