Ultimate Sustainable Nomadic Home

Ultimate Sustainable Nomadic Home | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

Designed by Berlin-based Studio Aisslinger, this incredibly attractive modular home was created almost 4,000 ft above sea level. Located near Bozen in Northern Italy, it features magnificent views of the Dolomite mountains, yet can be easily taken apart and rebuilt in a new location. This makes the structure perfect for the travelling nomad, all while leaving a minimal CO2 footprint.

Skyscraping Tower of Abraham Lincoln Books

Skyscraping Tower of Abraham Lincoln Books | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it
There is a lot to be said about Abraham Lincoln, one of America's most influential presidents, which is made abundantly clear by the newly erected tower of books in the nation's capital. The cylindrical structure stands three stories high at approximately 34 feet in height and features over 15,000 titles about the 16th president of the free world. The innumerable volumes of works present in this towering pillar symbolize the never-ending discussion about the famed American president.

 

Placed in the lobby of Ford's Theatre Center for Education and Leadership, it makes for an excellent introductory piece to the new museum dedicated to Lincoln's history. Fascinatingly, it is adjacent to where Lincoln died at the Petersen House. The museum is currently under construction and set to open later this month, in time for President's Day.
