The Manta Underwater Room / Genberg Underwater Hotels

The Manta Underwater Room / Genberg Underwater Hotels | innovative design | Scoop.it

Imagine yourself encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swimming lazily by - sometimes in three or four layers of different species above the reef floor. This is the heart-stopping experience that awaits you in the underwater room. The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood, and each an experience in itself...

[Completed in 2013 by Genberg Underwater Hotels in Tanzania]

A Tiny, DIY Trailer Home Built by a Couple on a Budget

A Tiny, DIY Trailer Home Built by a Couple on a Budget | innovative design | Scoop.it
A young couple on the move build a small home that will go wherever life takes them.

Brian and Joni Buzarde's 236-square-foot trailer has made upward mobility possible, having moved with them from Austin, Texas, to the Rocky Mountains hamlet of Marble, Colorado.

They started by purchasing a 26-foot-long flatbed chassis for about $7,000 and then bolted on walls made from structural insulated panels—foam insulation sandwiched between sections of oriented strand board.

Inside, the dominant material is birch-veneer plywood—a modern choice, versatile enough to serve as walls, floor, ceiling, and kitchen cabinets. The place is full of tiny-house efficiencies: There’s a loft bed, a half-size refrigerator, and eight-inch-deep storage compartments built into the floor. The bathtub is a galvanized-steel cow trough, and a closet area omits a formal dresser in favor of hanging baskets. A large sliding-glass door cuts down on interior storage possibilities but adds  natural brightness, enhanced by two skylights.

An innovative floating survival shelter that rises above floods | innovative design | Scoop.it
Zhou Ying and Niu Yuntao created a floating emergency shelter that could save lives during floods and tsunamis.

The alarming pace of rising sea levels has inspired designers Zhou Ying and Niu Yuntao to create a floating emergency shelter that could save lives during floods and tsunamis. Instead of conventional exposed life rafts, survivors can use the Duckweed Survival House as an enclosed floating shelter that protects people from large waves while trying to get to safety.

Stellar in Nantes, France: A Public Sculpture That Looks Like A Roller Coaster Of Chairs

Margot Krasojevic Turns Snow Cave Shelters into Practical, Impossible Art

Margot Krasojevic Turns Snow Cave Shelters into Practical, Impossible Art | innovative design | Scoop.it

Margot Krasojevic's latest proposal, a mesh shelter that takes the concept of snow caves and applies it to an artificial structure, is built for an eminently practical purpose: a built emergency shelter for climbers and others caught in extreme conditions.

The elaborate, high tech and naturally contoured structure is as much a thought experiment as it is a serious architectural proposal, with the carbon fibre mesh acting as a snow-catcher, forming a frame for a large snow drift. The captured snow works as both building material and insulation, allowing for the creation of a shelter of several rooms. Inside sits a wooden frame suspended from the mesh and attached to the landscape by climbing ropes, which avoid freezing by swaying. This frame can have canvases attached to it, and contains cell-like modules that would act as sleeping areas...

Lisbon's Junk Gets a Second Life as Gorgeous 3D Animal Street Art

Lisbon's Junk Gets a Second Life as Gorgeous 3D Animal Street Art | innovative design | Scoop.it

Lisbon, one of Europe’s most underrated cities, has in recent years been the recipient of an influx of artists. The local talent also exists in spades. One of these homegrown creatives is artist Arturo “Bordalo II,” who uses materials like old tires, scrap metal, steering wheels, oil paint, and bumpers to form impressive, larger-than-life 3D murals on walls and back alleys throughout the city. The stars of these murals are almost always animals, and the art itself is a mix of Banksy and a more colorful Tim Burton...

Filip Janssens expanded on his 2014 collection of small steel furniture called JOINTED, which was presented at the Design Biennale Interieur Kortrijk, and went big, really big. The JOINTED CUBE is based on the same idea but is a steel framed outdoor installation.

It’s partly closed with pine walls, floor, and ceiling, but with moments of openness highlighted by steel cubes. The cubes become places to sit or tables to highlight objects. Modular seats are both inside and outside the cube.

Visitors can climb to the top of this pavilion in the Jardin des Tuileries, which is made up of a complex lattice of identical timber beams.

Designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates for Galerie Phillipe Gravier, the structure is based on small nomadic shelters, and has been assembled using techniques typical of traditional Japanese carpentry.

"The pavilion consists of identical wooden pieces that have been stacked, twisted and assembled to create a poetic dynamic volume," said Kuma. "It offers an organic geometry by a geometric composition of wood."

Ship Shape: Inhouse Designs a Shipping Container Office For Ad Agency Ninety9Cents | innovative design | Scoop.it

At Cape Town’s advertising agency Ninety9Cents, the architecture firm Inhouse put in its 2 cents—in the form of the reception area’s shipping container. It’s lined with OSB and furnished to serve as a waiting lounge for clients from the likes of Checkers and Puma. That’s all a nod not only to the harbor, seen from the windows, but also to the creative solutions the agency sends around the globe. The other major intervention is less symbolic than pragmatic. A bleacher-style structure that also houses the kitchen acts as a communication hub for the 200-strong staff, split between three office levels...

Cityscape Portraits | Andrea Constantini | innovative design | Scoop.it

Andrea Constantini is an Italian photographer and graphic designer, and founder of PhotogtaphizeMag, an independent, free, electronic magazine.

He believes that “photography in the modern has received the gift of digital”, a gift that he uses in his beautiful works. In his architecturalized collection, he emphasized the idea of the human mind is made for being constantly elsewhere, this being one of the single, most important distinctions between a “conscious man and an instinctive animal”, giving us the ability to overcome the boundaries of not only social restraints, economical differencies and other such daily struggles, but also infinite concepts such as space and time...

Set Up This Bamboo 'Glamper' in 45 Minutes | innovative design | Scoop.it

From a fancy suspended "tree house" to doughnut-shaped high-tech tents, the pursuit of "glamping" (glamorous camping, that is) continues to inspire designers. Another case in point: the Froute Pod, a new glamper designed by Giant Grass, a Melbourne-based social enterprise focused on building sustainable structures with bamboo. Bearing an indubitable resemblance to an onion, the glowing pod constructed from bamboo and waterproof canvas includes two side flaps that can be peeled back to form awnings. The bulbous shape, according to the designers, is supposed to optimize standing room on the interior, which reaches a maximum height of about eight feet.
