Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 31, 2015 1:41 PM

I often fly into CVG (Cincinnati) and wondered why those 3 letters are used as the airport code instead of CIN.  "Serving the greater Cincinnati metro area, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky's airport code comes from the nearby city of Covington."  So why is Chicago ORD and Washington D.C.'s airport IAD?  Airport codes has all the answers to these sorts of questions, but the great circle mapper can help you visualize how these transportation hubs are connected and make fun maps of all your travels.

House on Wheels: Architecture Student Converts Old School Bus Into Modular Living Space

House on Wheels: Architecture Student Converts Old School Bus Into Modular Living Space | Navigate | Scoop.it

A house on wheels can be an adventure vehicle, a home with a view, or a moveable apartment unit.  A recent University of Minnesota architecture graduate took on a unique thesis project when he converted an old school bus into a living space.

Hank Butitta’s goal was to push the design process beyond theory and beyond drawings. The school bus project was a three-dimensional space, and it came with the corresponding challenges and benefits. The challenge was to take the limited square footage and develop a flexible multi-use space.
