Allison Furfine's curator insight, December 8, 2014 6:01 PM

These are the newest destinations for travel in 2015. It's interesting to see what new places are emerging as "hot spots" for travel. If you want to see the new cool places to go, this article would be a great resource. I like how new places are constantly being discovered. Travel and tourism is so important to some of these places in order to stimulate their economies.

SHADE: A Solar Home Adapts for Sustainable Desert Living

SHADE: A Solar Home Adapts for Sustainable Desert Living | Good Places | Scoop.it

Team ASUNM, a collaborative effort between Arizona State University and University of New Mexico, has come together to address the inefficiencies of urban sprawl and to create a model for sustainable desert living, dubbed SHADE (Solar Home Adapting for Desert Equilibrium), which is an entry in the Solar Decathlon 2013 competition that takes place on October 3-13, 2013 in Irvine, California.

 

Using external vertical screens and a solar canopy for shade, the SHADE home experiences a stable, consistent temperature with the use of a radiant cooling system used alongside an air cooling unit. Team ASUNM is exploring the residential application of thermal storage to chill water at night to create ice that cools a glycol solution during the day.

A Unique Hotel Creatively Reimagines Concrete Pipes as Seating

A Unique Hotel Creatively Reimagines Concrete Pipes as Seating | Good Places | Scoop.it

Australian architectural firm Techne has recently redesigned the Prahran Hotel and pub. The process involved the demolition of the rear extension to be replaced with a very unique and modern addition.


The designers chose to use large concrete pipes as both the pub's seating and outer facade. The tubes are stacked on top of each other to meet the building’s two-story height while still allowing plenty of natural light in through the windows. There are 17 pipes in all. The ones used for customers can hold anywhere from two to twelve guests and are complete with leather seating and timber paneling.

Other unique aspects of this renovation include the large open courtyard that enhances natural light and the concrete half-pipe that has been mounted on steel beams, acting as an alternate dining booth. The interior of the building is a mix of unfinished concrete and metal. This feature helps to contrast the warmth of the natural wood and leather found throughout the structure.
