Minimalist Gottshalden House Blending With The Green Surroundings | Internet marketing | Scoop.it

Overlooking Lake Zürich, in Winterthur, Switzerland, the Gottshalden House is a relaxing three-storey home.


The house’s exterior is all covered in timber cladding. Located in a tranquil and quiet site and surrounded by a beautiful green scenery, the picturesque home was designed by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten. The simple, angular dream-like house integrates perfectly into the landscape, unveiling a breezy and uncluttered interior.

The L-shaped floor plan boasts oak plank ceilings and flush-mounted windows that offer framed views of the surroundings. Wood is the main material used to define the interior, which is well-ventilated and flooded with light.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, July 10, 2013 11:24 AM

But while the +1 button has long given you the option to post a piece of content to the Google+ stream, just +1ing something without specifically sharing it publicly or with a particular person or circle has been pretty much guaranteed to go unnoticed by others, unless they happened to be digging around your profile looking at your +1 list or see it come up in their search results.

china completes the largest building in the world | Internet marketing | Scoop.it

it's one of the superlatives destined for a record book: 'what is the world's largest building?' a year ago the answer would have been dubai's international airport terminal 3, but as of july 1st the new century global center in the fiercely-growing mega-city of chengdu undoubtedly takes the title.  with 1.2 million square feet spread out over 18 stories in a glass and steel structure, the program includes what one might expect for a building of this scale: a 14-screen imax theater, shops, restaurants, offices, hotels (yes, plural), the reconstruction of an entire mediterranean village, an artificial beach with realistic sunsets and sea breezes orchestrated by the help of an LED wall (in a contemporary 'truman show' fashion), and a 500,000 ft2 art center next door designed by none other than zaha hadid. to make some spatial comparisons, the building could comfortably house three pentagons or 20 sydney opera houses. it's important to add as well that the entire structure was constructed in just a year, and stands as a testament to the will and ability of the chinese

Donald Clark Plan B: Good, bad and ugly: 7 critics of social media

Donald Clark Plan B: Good, bad and ugly: 7 critics of social media | Internet marketing | Scoop.it

I’m of an age (56) where lots of my contemporaries show contempt towards social media. It’s rarely a reasoned argument, simply a sneer accompanied by a ‘I’m too good for that sort of thing’ attitude. Euan Semple made the valid point on Facebook that “Not being attracted to the social web is OK but adopting a sneering tone when you tell me that, frankly, isn’t.” and that it’s not easy dealing with the criticism as the debate as it’s very difficult arguing the case for something your opponent has never used or has no real knowledge of.
