Small sustainable design on North Stradbroke Island

Small sustainable design on North Stradbroke Island | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

The architecture of these detached holiday retreats on North Stradbroke Island encapsulates a recent trend towards small, sustainable house design. Paul Butterworth Architect designed the homes in response to a brief requiring cost-effective, versatile design that was carefully tuned to the Stradbroke climate and lifestyle.

Designed to accommodate both large gatherings or an intimate couples retreat, central decks form the core of both dwellings, with the compact interiors opening up to and borrowing from the outdoor deck spaces. The building form, materials and colours were chosen to dissolve into the natural hues, shadows and textures of the bush surrounds...

"-Can digital technologies enable citizens to act on collectively shared issues?

 -Can principles from online culture help to form new collectives around communal      resources in an urban context?

 -Can media technologies bring about a sense of place and connection among urbanites, and a feeling of ‘ownership’ of their environment?

 

These are the main questions that will be addressed during the international conference Social Cities of Tomorrow."

The Lexicon of Sustainability

Our earliest descendants were hunter/gatherers who foraged for their food, were in tune with their surroundings, and ate with the seasons. After foraging was essentially replaced by agriculture, people became increasingly detached from where their food came from. Foraging offers people a way to reconnect with nature and shows that food is all around us.

 

@OzarkHerbs offers foraging workshops.

Architectural “iphoneography” / Lynette Jackson | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

According to Spillman Farmer Architects‘ blog “Speaking of Architecture“, Lynette Jackson aka Flickr user Page67_Lynette Jackson uses her iphone to document, design and publish images of the built environment around her through Instagram. Taking a series of images that zoom deeper and deeper into the nuances of architectural form and space, Jackson’s use of pop-art imagery and graphic tools bring out details that otherwise go unnoticed and creates a narrative about each individual work of architecture that she documents.

@manufernandez

It is likely you have heard about this project of building a new city from scratch to test new urban technologies, but no people will be living there. In fact, we first heard about it some months ago (I wrote some paragraphs linking this with my memories from Dead cities and other tales, by Mike Davis, in which he depicts the construction of a german town in Utah to test the destruction potential of city centres aerial bombing).

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 19, 2014 9:33 PM

Yes, design is making an impact on some areas of schools but, unfortunately, the schools aren't really built in a way that allows for much major "remodelling" but that doesn't mean that schools can't begin to make changes to what is happening inside the building. Design and designers have a great many options and it's time that education begin to shift from the desks, rows, learning at the front model.

The Third Industrial Revolution

The Third Industrial Revolution | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

From the year 2000 to 2010 the number of manufacturing jobs in America fell by about a third. The rise of outsourcing and offshoring and the growth of sophisticated supply chains has enabled companies the world over to use China, India and other lower-wage countries as workshops. Now, the global financial crisis has people thinking it is time their countries returned to making stuff in order to create jobs and prevent more manufacturing skills from being lost. These factors, and technologies like robotics, 3D printing and artificial intelligence could help bring about a Third Industrial Revolution.

How Trust Is Built in Peer-to-Peer Marketplaces

How Trust Is Built in Peer-to-Peer Marketplaces | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

As the sharing economy continues to gain momentum, the importance of security and trust between users is becoming increasingly apparent. Not only the Airbnb incident in June 2011 or the shutdown of the luxury carsharing company HiGear have shown that peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplaces involve higher risks than business-to-consumer e-commerce. The key advocates of the sharing economy Rachel Botsman and Lisa Gansky have also identified “trust between strangers” as a necessary foundation for the functioning of P2P asset-sharing marketplaces. While the existing reputation systems such as eBay’s rating system may have been sufficient for e-commerce, the newer P2P platforms, such as car or flat sharing, require more complex trust systems. Since acting anonymously is far easier on the Web than in real life, P2P transactions also call for some type of identity verification, that confirms that you are who you say you are. Having recognized these issues, several entrepreneurs in different countries have begun to build portable cross-platform trust and identity systems meant to facilitate the sharing of assets between individuals, such as TrustCloud, Briiefly, Legit and Peertrust.

Reconfigurations of the Urban Grid

Reconfigurations of the Urban Grid | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Rento van Drunen’s Gridcollages on pytr75′s blog put my mind back to Albert Pope’s book, Ladders which was published in 1996.

 

This book was very influential on my work and my thinking about urban structures and the systems that are used to put and keep them in place. In Ladders, Pope suggested that the pre war urban grid, when it was first conceived, was an open system.

Bach on Sleds: a sustainable New Zealand retreat

Bach on Sleds: a sustainable New Zealand retreat | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
On the shore of an idyllic white sandy beach on New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula rests an elegant hut. The site lies within the coastal erosion zone, where all building must be removable. This is taken literally and the hut is designed on two thick wooden sleds for movement back up the site or across the beach and onto a barge.

The hut is a series of simple design moves. The aesthetic is natural and reminiscent of a beach artifact/perhaps a surf-life-saving or observation tower.

The two storey shutter on the front facade winches open to form an awning, shading the interior from summer sun while allowing winter sun to enter.

The hut is totally sustainable from its modest size to the use of timber in its cladding, structure, lining and joinery and from its worm tank waste system to the separate potable grey water tanks.

NASA: How much water is on Planet Earth? Visualization: All water bunched up to a single ball [photo]

NASA: How much water is on Planet Earth? Visualization: All water bunched up to a single ball [photo] | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

How much of planet Earth is made of water? Very little, actually. Although oceans of water cover about 70 percent of Earth's surface, these oceans are shallow compared to the Earth's radius. The above illustration shows what would happen if all of the water on or near the surface of the Earth were bunched up into a ball. The radius of this ball would be only about 700 kilometers, less than half the radius of the Earth's Moon, but slightly larger than Saturn's moon Rhea which, like many moons in our outer Solar System, is mostly water ice. How even this much water came to be on the Earth and whether any significant amount is trapped far beneath Earth's surface remain topics of research.

The Limits of Density

The Limits of Density | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Denser cities are more productive, more innovative, and more energy efficient.

 

Density is all the rage these days. Urban economists, some of whom could be heard extolling the praises of "sun, skills, and sprawl" just a few years ago, now see increasing density as the key to improving productivity and driving economic growth. In his story for The Atlantic, "How Skyscrapers Can Save the City," Harvard University’s Edward Glaeser put it this way: "As America struggles to regain its economic footing, we would do well to remember that dense cities are also far more productive than suburbs, and offer better-paying jobs ... tall buildings enable the human interactions that are at the heart of economic innovation, and of progress itself." Well-intentioned planners and preservationists drive up prices when they stand in the way of taller and taller buildings, he argues. Overly restrictive height limitations not only impede economic progress, but make cities less, not more, liveable.

 

There can be no doubt that density has its advantages. In general, denser cities are more productive, more innovative, and more energy efficient. But only up to a point.
