Innovative Sustainability: Matchbox Elementary School Sports Hall

Innovative Sustainability: Matchbox Elementary School Sports Hall | Communication design | Scoop.it

The Obrenovac First Elementary School is the first established school in Belgrade, almost 200 years old. During the two centuries pupils of this school had no adequate indoor space for physical education and sports activities. 

From the very beginning the idea was to design low budget, energy efficient and sustainable building with no unnecessary details.

As Obrenovac Municipality is close to the river Sava banks, it is under the influence of the underground water. This was the crucial technical problem which had to be resolved from the first preliminary design phase. Through design process, the solution for these challenges has been successfully found by designing the waterproof concrete hull, 5 meters deep in the ground, just few centimeters over the highest underground water level. This concept provided some kind of waterproof box, as boat sink, for all premises inside.

Infographic: Are We on the Path to Peak Water?

Infographic: Are We on the Path to Peak Water? | Communication design | Scoop.it

Many scientists and experts fear that humanity is reaching the point of peak water — the point at which freshwater is being consumed faster than it is being replenished or available. In the infographic above we take a look at the amount of water use around the world. Can we cut back before we reach the point of no return?


Kylie Schultz researched, wrote and produced this infographic as a participant in the Ensia Mentor Program. Her mentor for the project was Ensia director Todd Reubold. Infographic design and layout byAmber Billings.

Water no get enemy! (Fela Kuti)

The product designer Simin Qui, has developed a water aerator that produce a beautiful complex liquid combination with three different designs. Water is a precious resource, we shouldn't waste it! 

Water aerators are very useful for preventing it and you can buy for small change. According to you, the SWIRL will be sold in large quantities?

Solar Power Is A Huge Water Saver (World Water Day Infographic)

Solar Power Is A Huge Water Saver (World Water Day Infographic) | Communication design | Scoop.it

Every year since 1993, the community of nations has focused on the importance of fresh water and advocated for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Severe droughts experienced recently in places like the American West, the Horn of Africa, Russia, China, and Australia have highlighted the fact that humans are rapidly using up the world's water supplies—and when they’re gone, they’re gone. We are spending one of our most vital resources in greater volumes every day.

One Block Off The Grid recently developed an infographic to illustrate how energy production depends on water. It shows water use by four of the most common energy sources: coal, nuclear, oil and gas, and solar. Solar comes out on top big time.

Interesting infographic from Lauren Moss.  This graphic makes a strong case for solar power. It's about time Hawaii integrated more solar power into the grid.  With the adoption of "smart meters" and better grid management, we can lessen our dependence on imported oil for power generation.  Aloha, Russ.
