Town Square Initiative: New York - Urban Planning and Design Concepts

Town Square Initiative: New York - Urban Planning and Design Concepts | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The Town Square Initiative is a yearlong volunteer effort in which Gensler designers set out to unearth and re-imagine unexpected open space in cities around the globe. All 43 Gensler offices were invited to participate in the conceptual project, in which we challenged our designers to identify open space in the city and reimagine it as a town square.

Diagramming the appliances that use the most energy

Diagramming the appliances that use the most energy | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Where does my electricity bill go?

The data included in our infographic is an average of our most recently tested appliances.

Our expert testers also identify the most efficient models on the market, which can save you significantly on running costs even against the average power consumption.

 

Electricity usage derived from product testing between 2011 and 2012. The infographic shows the hot water heater using the lion's share of the power. However this is based on electric hot water heaters using an off-peak rate. If you have solar, heat pump or high-efficiency gas, then your water heating costs are likely to be much lower.

As a general rule, the older your appliances are, the more likely they are to use more energy. For example in late-2009 over 50% of new TVs had an energy rating of less than 4 stars. By mid-2011 this number had dropped to less than 10%...

A Siberian Eco-city Inside a One Kilometer Crater

A Siberian Eco-city Inside a One Kilometer Crater | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Eco-city 2020 is a proposal for the rehabilitation of the Mirniy industrial zone in Eastern Siberia, Russia designed by the innovative architectural studio AB Elis Ltd.

The project would be located inside a giant man-made crater of more than one kilometer in diameter and 550 meters deep that used to be one of the world’s largest quarries. The idea is to create a new garden city shielded from the harsh Siberian environmental conditions and instead, attract tourists and residents to Eastern Siberia, with the ability to accommodate more than 100,000 people. The new city is planned to be divided in 3 main levels with a vertical farm, forests, residences, and recreational areas.

One of the most interesting aspects of the proposal is the glass dome that will protect the city and would be covered by photovoltaic cells that will harvest enough solar energy for the new development. A central core houses the majority of the vertical circulations and infrastructure along with a multi-level research center. The housing area is located in the first level with outdoor terraces overlooking a forest in the center of the city, in order to create a new type of highly dense urbanism in harmony with nature.
