Singapore's Archifest Zero Waste Pavilion

Singapore's Archifest Zero Waste Pavilion | hrisThoma | Scoop.it

WOW Architects was selected to design and build the first-ever Pavilion for Singapore’s Archifest last year.

 

The aesthetic design of the pavilion was a response to the duality of the site, while the zero waste and buildability strategy was developed around two highly rapid deployable and re-useable systems. The first is the main structure, composed of box-truss systems, and the second is a polymer mesh developed for slope control that has unique attributes that enhance the usability and interaction of the space.

To achieve zero-waste, the design team considered time, materials, cost and the afterlife of the elements, with a . The box-truss system, including the roof takes a maximum of approximately 7 days to deploy, while the membrane takes a maximum of approximately 3 days to install. Overall time frame to complete construction is 10-15 days.

The cellular membrane can be re-used in Fort Canning Hill’s other areas requiring slope protection and stabilization or it will be donated to a nearby country whose village/farmland has been affected by soil erosion from slopes.

Great concept.

OFFICIAL ANDREASCY's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:53 AM
Colleague David Lee once again comes through with a great blog post all about business origin stories. Here he gives us the origin story of the Make A Stand Lemon-aid. It is a terrific example of the power of an origin story. Don't have a social cause that got you started? Not so fast -- sure you do! You were passionate about some problem you wanted to solve. That's what we want to hear about. This goes for whether you are an entreprenuer or a huge enterprise. We all have our origin stories. They are the lifeblood of organizations. Follow the tips Lee talks about in the article, watch the video for inspiration, and let your passion show!

What is a Natural Storyteller? | hrisThoma | Scoop.it

"You know that feeling, when you can’t wait to get home to tell your significant other about the crazy thing that just happened at work? The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling stories. (Usually more than once.) The above excerpt essentially describes every single day of my life. Sharing life experiences with people who mean something to me is what makes these experiences that much more exciting.


Read below, as Karen Dietz sums up my thoughts way better than I ever could. Thanks Karen and Gregg!

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.

Harvard Business Review’s Social Outlook

Harvard Business Review’s Social Outlook | hrisThoma | Scoop.it

The academic and business publication has quietly grown a digital presence....

 

Over the last several years, the Harvard Business Review has quietly grown its digital presence, and it points to social as the main reason. HBR is a cross between a magazine and an academic journal. But with the exponential growth in digital, the outlet is trying to be more egalitarian without watering down its heavily researched and often didactic business-management content. The publication, which costs $100 per year or $17 a month, believes social media’s role as a democratization tool can make its content more accessible to a wider audience.

 

“Social has been a key channel for us to increase the impact of these ideas,” said Eric Hellweg, HBR’s digital strategy director. “That’s the heart of what we do. But to unearth these ideas and tell them in the social realm, it becomes an effective way to spread these ideas around the world. It’s a great way to get reach and influence.”...

Gary Goel's curator insight, April 12, 2013 11:53 AM

I still have to Roll with Android unless Apple made a deal with ADOBE yet? Anyone know? I love the smooth interface and camera but I still see blank spots where there is " FLASH" from Adobe. Meaning as a person in Business I don't get full Web. But if anyone knows an app or can update me on that I would buy the ever fashionable IPHONE. But Google is Google and Google has the Open Source Lanquage that give the power of the world to download and create. Apple remains Proprietary and you have to buy their apps or a limited to their apps right? Or do they let people download and build what they  want?

Sharp perspective on entrepreneurship from a 19 year old. If all entrepreneurs had this fresh yet oddly wise view, more startups would have some success.


When the initial focus is on creating the absolutely best user experience possible, and not letting monitization get in the way or simplicity and ease of use, you have a winner.


The problem is, most angel investors (at least the seasoned ones) will not be able to look past NOT having a business model/financial projections. The enlightened few will get it. LIke the enlightened few entrepreneurs will get matched up with them.


I expect this approach to take years to take hold. I suppose twitter and facebook started this way.
