As we attempt to combine multi-device design requirements with complex, media-rich narratives, we’ve hit the wall. The chunky, fields-and-templates approach we’ve developed can’t save us from the mismatch between our content and HTML’s descriptive tools. The good news is we don’t have to convert all our projects to XML to learn from the XML community’s wisdom. By using custom elements and properties to represent content’s meaning, transforming it into HTML on output, and ensuring that editing tools share the same vocabulary, we can publish structured content that supports the needs of today’s editors and art directors while also making our content safe for future generations.
Name: Marco Pecota & Ilse Gudino Location: Toronto, Canada Size: 2,700 square feet Years lived in: 5 years, owned Imagining what the combined efforts of an industrial furniture designer/horror magazine publisher/film maker and a professional flamenco dancer could do with a boxy mixed-use building couldn’t even come close to the dramatic reality that is Marco & Ilse’s multi-level loft. Especially considering the fact that every inch was carefully planned in a full interior demolition and re-design by Marco himself.
Commissioned by the Development and Maintenance of Sports Facilities, Iran, the Rock Climbing Hall designed by architects, Lida Almassian anf Shahin Heidari from Tehran-based New Wave Architecture, is inspired by the geological process of the large-scale movements of the earth‘s crust and its tectonic forces. The facility is designed to simulate the exhilarating rock-climbing experience for both, adventurers and onlookers alike.
Deforestation has long been cited as a problem, but a lack of accessible data meant that the general public had to take someone's word for the figures. As a result, its threat always seemed more abstract and nebulous than, say, climate change or rising sea levels.
Until now: Google has unveiled its Global Forest Watch, an online tool that monitors deforestation around the world in near-real time.
Whether for your personal profile or your brand page, the desire and question of how to schedule Google Plus posts is one that comes up daily, yet the answers aren't obvious. Here are ALL of your options.
"When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?"
Mexico City has plans to create an "Earthscraper", a building that will descent 65 floors into the Earth. It's designed to be a sustainable alternative for offices, shops, and museums in the future, and the plans will blow your mind.

Arctic Harvester was the first prize winning entry in the “Innovation and Architecture for the Sea” category of the Jacques Rougerie Foundation International Architecture Competition, 2013. It proposes an itinerant soil-less agricultural infrastructure designed to drift the circulating ocean currents between Greenland and Canada, exploiting the nutrient-rich fresh water released by melting icebergs as the basis for a large-scale hydroponic-farming system. The floating facility is equipped to house a community of 800 people, inspired in its compact urban form by vertically oriented, bayside Greenlandic villages and their social, cultural and economic relationship to the sea.
Today in the highly digital world that we have come to live in, the experience has to be extended to the consumer’s devices: namely mobile phones, tablets and personal computers delivered on the backbone of the World Wide Web.
So in this era where consumers have come to expect more from their brands, are patients correct in demanding a better user experience from their care providers?
Healthcare organizations are aware of this expectation and they are also aware that physicians and their allied co-workers need a better medium to communicate and collaborate among them. This not only leads to a better experience for all but also is critical as hospitals continue to drive better clinical outcomes.
One of the aspects of digital engagement is providing an exceptional web experience, whether it is providing physicians with real time data and reports on the cases they are following or engaging patients with education that can help them manage their health better.
The digital experience can help in achieving the following
1) Provide a platform for better collaboration between physicians. Also this helps in increasing consultations between experts who are not necessarily collocated but still need a visual to make a better diagnosis.
2) Accentuates the sharing of information between hospitals and even between various departments of the same hospital.
3) Leveraging the existing hospital information to give a visual picture to the patients on education and how they can leverage the hospital and its facilities to the best of its ability.
4) Running extensive 360 degree programs involving various departments like surgery, nutrition and physiotherapy.
5) Providing a mechanism for better healthcare management.
