Excerpt:


The green bottle Christmas tree design reused some 2,330 glass bottles, collected over a period of one year from 13 families of Pamplona region in Spain. The 6m high conical structure, resembling a tree, with a diameter of 4.80m at the base used 90% green glass bottles and 10% transparent glass bottles. These glass bottles were then lit using waterproof linear fluorescent lamps Philips TCW060, arranged radially into three circular rings in parallel planes to the base. The light is projected towards the cone’s vertex illuminating the bottles; with colour temperature 840 and total power of only 2.3kW to emit a radiant green light on a street in Spain.

Remembering Paolo Soleri 1919-2013

Today the world has lost one of its great minds. Paolo Soleri, architect, builder, artist, writer, theorist, husband, father, born on Summer Solstice, June 21, 1919, has died at age 93.

Paolo Soleri spent a lifetime investigating how architecture, specifically the architecture of the city, could support the countless possibilities of human aspiration. The urban project he founded, Arcosanti, 65 miles north of Phoenix, was described by NEWSWEEK magazine as “…the most important urban experiment undertaken in our lifetimes.”

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Soleri was an amazing contrast in design from the usual American living styles. Here is a tribute to that amazing person.

Have we all been duped by the Myers-Briggs test? - Fortune Management

Have we all been duped by the Myers-Briggs test? - Fortune Management | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Despite its popularity, the personality test has been subject to sustained criticism by professional psychologists for over three decades. (Have we all been duped by the Myers-Briggs test?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

How many have completed all or part of this test over the years. This article presents very good points to support the idea that while it's kind of fun to see "who you are and what your like" that might just be all there really is to these tests.

 

Excerpt:

FORTUNE -- "When Frank Parsons opened the world's first career guidance center in Boston in 1908, he began by asking prospective clients 116 penetrating questions about their ambitions, strengths, and weaknesses (and how often they bathed). But then he did something more unusual: He measured their skulls.

 

Parsons was a committed believer in phrenology. If you had a large forehead, he might recommend you become a lawyer or engineer. But if your skull was more developed behind the ears, you were of the "animal type" and best suited to manual work.

 

Career advice has, thankfully, come a long way since then. But now, instead of measuring the outside of people's heads, it has become common to measure the inside using psychometric tests. Personality testing has grown into a major industry and is standard procedure in leadership and management courses, as part of job-interview processes, and, increasingly, in career counselling. But should we really trust such tests to deliver scientific, objective truth?"
