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.

The Geography of a Pencil

A film from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, adapted from the 1958 essay by Leonard E. Read.


This year's Geography Awareness Week's theme was "Declare Your Interdependence!"  The GAW poster for 2012 focused on the Geography of a Pencil and this video works together nicely as a supplement to that poster.  You may see the economics of capitalism and globalization in a less optimistic light than Leonard Read, but the theme of interconnectedness makes this a great resource.

An interesting take on the pencil.

The Life of a T-Shirt [Infographic]

The Life of a T-Shirt [Infographic] | scatol8® | Scoop.it
The textiles industry is one of the biggest contributors to landfill waste in both the UK and the US.

The fast fashion model that has developed within our consumerist society is promoting negative consumer behaviour across the globe. Throwaway fashion has become the norm, with customers spending minimal amounts of money on a garment that has an unbelievably short life span, meaning it will no doubt end up in the bin.

This infographic, designed by myself for Urban Times in collaboration with TextƧure, provides an insight into the statistics behind the life of a t-shirt (bare in mind that it does not include the entire apparel industry), revealing some shocking facts about the water and energy consumption during the production of a simple t-shirt. It also provides some simple yet effective ways in which everyone can help.
