We Have Everything We Need Already, by Shilpa Jain

We Have Everything We Need Already, by Shilpa Jain | ludmila | Scoop.it
My grandmother never went to school, she never knew how to read or write, and she was such a wise and brilliant woman. She was incredibly creative, could come up with songs and dances and games right on the spot.

20 Smart City Technologies for 2013 and Beyond

Santiago Chile announced they’re going to become a “smart city” in 2013. Santiago is just one example of a growing number of areas around the globe preparing and modernizing for the future, in fact demographers have long predicted the mass urbanization of metropolitan areas across the world. According to the United Nations, by the year 2050, 80% of the world will be living in urban areas. The equivalent of seven Manhattan size cities will be built each year until 2050. For these cities to thrive they must use smart technology to its fullest. Let’s take a look at what’s available now and what’s coming down the pipe.

The Systems That Power the Year's Most Sustainable Buildings

The Systems That Power the Year's Most Sustainable Buildings | ludmila | Scoop.it

Only a decade ago, sustainable building techniques were fairly rare, a fringe culture on the periphery of mainstream architecture. But with Stephen Colbert interviewing radically green architects like Mitchell Joachim and Passive House buildingspopping up in New York City, that's all changing very quickly.

For concrete evidence of the shift, look no further than this year's Top Ten Green Buildings, an annual list chosen by the American Institute of Architects. A few years ago, this list was full of single-family homes commissioned by clients with a special interest in sustainability. Lately, it's full of schools, government buildings, and commercial developments.

PES-Architects Designs A Theater That Harvests Rainwater!

PES-Architects Designs A Theater That Harvests Rainwater! | ludmila | Scoop.it

Evoking the character of a butterfly, eight massive steel wings stretch out from the roof 50 meters from the ground. While the wings add a distinct sculptural element to the crown of the theater, they reflect direct sunlight, sheltering interior spaces from excessive heat. The slanting of the roof wings also work to harvest rainwater, taking advantage of the local climate and reducing the building’s impact on the environment. Adding to the theater’s distinctness, thousands of LED lights illuminate the aluminum wings, and make it possible to change the color  according to the character of the performances. Inside, the Main Opera Auditorium is covered by more than 15,000 solid bamboo blocks, all individually shaped according to acoustic needs. The architects say that an exciting part of the design was the ability to realize a building that captures the local character while infusing a distinctly Finnish element in its forms and materials.

Stunning

That's really cool how there are thousands of lights that can change the color of the roof depending on the performance.
