The Top 7 Content Marketing Trends That Will Dominate 2015 | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it

Content marketing is bigger than ever; content creation and publication is at an all-time high, and traditional marketing budgets are being reallocated to content marketing efforts. However, despite its pervasive usage, content marketing isn’t without its struggles.
In this article, I’ll outline some of the significant challenges marketers will face this year when it comes to content marketing, as well as looking at trends we’re likely to see during 2015.

SEO expert Jayson DeMers nails is with his content marketing predictions for the upcoming year.


In case you were wondering whether or not to take these predictions seriously, check out the post Jayson wrote last year around this time predicting the trends for 2014. Almost all of them proved to be true, with the small exception of the importance of Google+ due to SEO things like Authorship (which was discontinued a few months ago).


From creative new distribution methods to increases in native advertising, guest blogging, and budgets, I'm really excited for the year ahead! What about you?

I really like using Influencer Lists to keep across the conversations of the Tweeps that I am particularly fond of following.  Add those people who you really enjoy following (maybe by area of expertise, current topic etc) to a list - either your own or a List to which they are already attached.  

 

This allows you to quickly scan the conversations of those people, plus other like-minded people on the same lists - a really simple way to bundle up your most influential conversations.

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it

Vietnam-based architect firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed an environmentally-friendly structure for FPT University that is located about 34 km away from Hanoi.
The façade of the seven-story building is designed to look like a checkerboard, with huge floor trees placed in the openings. The openings also let in lots of natural sunlight, saving on energy.
Measuring at 11,065-square-meters, the structure will also feature a green roof to protect the whole building from too much sunlight.
According to the architects, “the structure is intended to promote sustainable development in Vietnam,” and “instill sustainable practices in the future generations”.

Stefano Boeri's "vertical forest" nears completion in Milan

Stefano Boeri's "vertical forest" nears completion in Milan | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it
A pair of skyscrapers by Boeri Studio are nearing completion in Milan, featuring as many trees as could be planted in a hectare of forest.

The studio led by Italian architect Stefano Boeri came up with the concept of Bosco Verticale, or Vertical Forest, as a way to combine high-density residential development with tree planting in city centres.

The first project born from this concept is now nearing completion in the Isola area of Milan's fast-developing Porta Nuova district. Two towers, measuring 80 and 112 metres, are set to open later this year and are already home to 900 trees.

"The project is set to create a new standard for sustainable housing," said engineering firm Arup, who is working alongside Boeri Studio to deliver the project...

In 2002, he mounted an exhibition, Ashes and Snow, in the Corderia of the Venice Arsenal e. and invited Shigeru Ban to design a prefabricated gallery in which this show could be displayed in varied locations.

Naturalist and architect shared a concern to make the building environmentally sensitive, and for Ban it was a challenge to recycle commonplace materials on a heroic scale.

Passive Houses: 13 Reasons Why the Future Will Be Dominated by this New Pioneering Trend

Passive Houses: 13 Reasons Why the Future Will Be Dominated by this New Pioneering Trend | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it

Passive Houses are essentially buildings which use very little energy for heating and cooling, whilst also providing a high level of comfort. 

The houses are so energy efficient they can save up to 90% in heating costs. One of the main focal points of Passive Houses is minimizing air leakage from the property. In fact, for a house to be certified, ‘the building must not leak more air than 0.6 times the house volume per hour’. The houses implement the latest in insulation technology, triple-glazed windows, balanced energy recovery ventilation and limiting thermal bridging, being heated mostly using ‘passive’ energy from electrical equipment, people and passive solar gains...

Named Zootopia, the proposal reimagines the 1960s zoo and safari park in central Jutland as a continuous landscape of forests, savannahs and rivers that centre around a sunken courtyard of visitors' facilities.

A Farming Kindergarten in Vietnam with a Spiraling Green Roof

A Farming Kindergarten in Vietnam with a Spiraling Green Roof | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it

In Dongnai, Vietnam, Vo Trong Nghia Architects has completed the construction of ‘farming kindergarten’, a large pre-school designed to accommodate up to 500 children. The project is envisioned as a model of sustainability set within the tropical climate, allowing the school’s young inhabitants to understand the importance of sustainable education and design.

A fully accessible green roof drawn in a triple-ring-shape creates three courtyards enclosed by the looping structure, providing safe and secure playgrounds for the kindergarten’s occupants. The different levels and gradients created by the building’s spiral form offer a series of distinct outdoor learning environments, where children are able to forge a close relationship with the natural world.

What if we could rebuild New York City?

What if we could rebuild New York City? | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it
New York has become one of the world’s most populous, densely packed cities. What if you could redraw the city’s map – and build it from scratch?

 

If we were designing New York today, how different would it look?

The new New York City would balance the relationship between the information networks that the metropolis depends on and Earth’s finite resources.

All vital components of life would be monitored and attuned to the needs of every organism, not just humans. Supplies of food and water, our energy and waste and even our air would be sensibly scrutinised. Thanks to masses of miniaturised low-cost electronic components deployed across the city, communication becomes far easier. New York will grow and adapt to millions of new minds entering it everyday.

The city would make sure every need is provided for within its borders. How we provide nutrients, transports, and shelter would be updated. Dilapidated buildings would be replaced with vertical agriculture and new kinds of housing would join cleaner, greener ways to get around the city. What were once streets become snaking arteries of livable spaces, embedded with renewable energy sources, low-tech, green vehicles for mobility and productive nutrient zones. The former street grid could provide the foundation for new flexible networks. By reengineering the obsolete streets, we can create robust and ecologically active pathways.

While all this may sound optimistic, some of this city of tomorrow is already taking shape...

22 Modern Shipping Container Homes Around the World

22 Modern Shipping Container Homes Around the World | Fransoix's Musings - Les intérêts de Fransoix | Scoop.it

With a little bit of imagination (and a lot work), some talented architects have succeeded in designing dwellings made of shipping containers, ranging from off-the-grid guest homes to full time single family homes.


Shipping Container homes have their pros and cons: they are durable and eco-friendly, usually more cost-effective to build than conventional construction, and pre-fab modules can be easily transported by truck. But they also must be well insulated and sealed, as the steel conducts heat and can easily rust.

Ellie Ruby-Rose Rasmussen's curator insight, April 18, 1:51 AM

I have curated this item because I believe it aligns with understanding of technology and sustainability. Educators (myself inclusive) should draw upon real world events and topics. Technology improvements in architecture have taken the spotlight in recent years as people work towards more sustainable lifestyles in the construction of homes and other buildings. Personal friends of mine have recently ventured in this concept of building and successfully completed their new home made from three shipping containers, in Point Cartwright, sunshine coast.

 

To propose a task to students that requires them to design a sustainable home from recycled materials, e.g. shipping containers. I believe, will transform student thinking about how technology is used, in order to improve design and work towards a preferred future (Albion, 2014).

 

This concept of this resource align with the Australian Curriculum as follows:

Design and Technology, Knowledge and Understanding:

- Recognise the role of people in design and technologies occupations and explore factors, including sustainability that impact on the design of products, services and environments to meet community needs (ACTDEK010)

- Investigate the suitability of materials, systems, components, tools and equipment for a range of purposes (ACTDEK013)
