Happy birthday, World Wide Web!

I have no idea why, but I am fascinated by the big universe that is the Web, and how it came into being. While I don't understand how packets and nodes work, the simple fact that I'm here typing this message to people who live hundreds and even thousands of miles away from here is amazing. 

I'm not going to ask you what you were doing 25 years ago, of course. But do you remember the first time you used the Internet?

Green8: A 'Vertical Garden City' for Berlin

Green8:  A 'Vertical Garden City' for Berlin | What's Happening to Our World | Scoop.it
This conceptual skyscraper for Berlin has a twisted figure-of-eight structure that curves around elevated gardens and greenhouses.

Agnieszka Preibisz and Peter Sandhaus, architects based in Berlin, developed the design to contribute to a new masterplan being put together for the eastern quarter of the city.

Describing the building as a "vertical garden city", the architects have planned a network of gardens and greenhouses that would slot into the two hollows of the figure-of-eight, intended to serve a growing desire among city dwellers for self-sustaining gardening.

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia | What's Happening to Our World | Scoop.it
The Pertamina Energy Tower's curved façade is precisely calibrated for Jakarta's proximity to the equator to mitigate solar heat gain year-round.

 

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper soon will grace the center of Jakarta, Indonesia — the Pertamina Energy Tower. When it's finished in 2019, it will be 99 stories high and serve as the headquarters of the national energy company. In addition to the 20,000 people who will work there, it will be the centerpiece of a campus that has a mosque, a sports center and a 2,000-seat auditorium for the performing arts.

Shaped like a funnel, the top of the tower opens at the top, capturing wind and sucking it inside to run a series of vertical wind turbines that provide 25 percent of the building's electricity.

The building is designed to be a symbol of Indonesia's commitment to sustainable development. Find more details at the link.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 24, 2014 11:32 AM

Hopefully, this will be the wave of the future. The building is designed specifically for the place it is going to sit and how it can gain the most energy from the natural resources available. They are taking advantage of the sunlight and geothermal sources of energy that do not pollute the environment and never run out.

Solar Research Paves Way for Energy-Harvesting Glass

Solar Research Paves Way for Energy-Harvesting Glass | What's Happening to Our World | Scoop.it
A UK-based company is developing solar-cell technology that could help advance the market for integrating solar energy-harvesting glass into commercial buildings.

Oxford Photovoltaics (PV) -- co-founded by Oxford University physicist Henry Snaith -- is using a material called perovskite to develop thin-film solar cells that can be printed directly onto glass to be used as semi-transparent, solar-energy harvesting material in large buildings. This potentially new market for solar cells -- the so-called building integrated photovoltaic, or BIP, market -- is in its nascent stages, but is poised to become a key commercial use of solar energy in the future.
