Responding to the Landscape: Archipelago House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Responding to the Landscape: Archipelago House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter | Yan's Earth | Scoop.it

The goal for this project was to provide a direct relationship with the dramatic archipelago landscape and to create a simple platform which would offer several diverse readings of the relationship between space and nature. Conceived as a light-weight construction in wood and glass and located in Stockholm’s outer archipelago, this summer house was built within the specific conditions prevailing on the island.

Without any car access, all materials had to be brought by boat from the mainland. Wood was chosen throughout the design in order to provide simplicity of construction and to minimize difficulties with heavy transportation.

The horizontal character of the black-stained exterior relates to the verticality of the island’s tall pines, and mirrored views of the Baltic Sea. The geometry of the plan is generated by the specifics of the site; the house sits on a flat surface between two rocky outcrops, and is oriented simultaneously towards the sun in south and towards sea views in the west. With smaller rooms placed behind, the three large social areas of the house open up to the terrace and provide an open platform, criss-crossed by sliding glass...

Climate Victims Deserve a Hearing, Whether Here or in The Hague - Huffington Post

Climate Victims Deserve a Hearing, Whether Here or in The Hague - Huffington Post | Yan's Earth | Scoop.it
Climate Victims Deserve a Hearing, Whether Here or in The HagueHuffington PostLast week, leaders of the 193 members of the United Nations General Assembly descended upon New York to open that body's sixty-seventh session.

Last year, several small island states called on the U.N. General Assembly to request an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice on the responsibilities of nations whose emissions of greenhouse gases within their jurisdictions contribute to serious harms in other countries. Sensing that endless political negotiations have resulted in little progress internationally, the islands sought to show that the climate change problem is one of law and justice, rather than merely politics and power.

What we want to discuss here is the effect of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on evolution and show how present evolutionary theory, developed and codified prior to the chemical revolution, does not account for life in our contaminated world.
