Biber Architects’ American Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015 to Honor Food Trucks and Vertical Farming

Biber Architects’ American Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015 to Honor Food Trucks and Vertical Farming | Développement durable, Sustainable development | Scoop.it

The United States will celebrate one of its most prized national treasures at the next World’s Fair: the food truck. In honor of the theme of the 2015  Milano Expo—“Feed the Planet, Energy for Life”—the American Pavilion, called American Food 2.0, includes street-level food trucks that will serve up some favorite American dishes.

The pavilion’s most visually distinctive feature, is its hydroponic facade—or, a football-field-length,vertical farm that is planted with harvestable crops. “It is as though a typical horizontal field was rotated (think Inception with a farm field standing in for Paris) to become the side of a building,” said Biber Architects in a statement. “It’s not our proposal for serious urban or vertical farming, which is usually indoors, but a didactic display talking about the past, present, and future of the American farm, and the American diet.”

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Reading in the mobile era | Développement durable, Sustainable development | Scoop.it

UNESCO is currently investigating how access to text can be improved through the use of technology, specifically basic mobile phones. Today mobile phones are common in areas where books are scarce. The United Nations estimates that 6 billion people have access to a connected mobile device of some sort, while only 4.5 billion have access to a toilet.

L’industrie du plastique milite pour une interdiction de jeter ses produits en Europe

L’industrie du plastique milite pour une interdiction de jeter ses produits en Europe | Développement durable, Sustainable development | Scoop.it
Les fabricants de plastique plaident en faveur d’une interdiction à
l’échelle européenne du dépôt de plastique dans les décharges.
Delphine Plasse's insight:

Quand on sait qu'un continent entier de déchets naviguent entre l'Alaska et le Japon, la pression monte. La plupart des pays européens sont déjà bien en deça de leurs objectifs de recyclage. (50% d'ici à 2020)
