Are smart cities a bright idea for the Global South? by Robert Muggah | CIC

Are smart cities a bright idea for the Global South? by Robert Muggah | CIC | design and roll | Scoop.it

Smart cities are very much a “developed world” concept. The hundred or so smart cities routinely featured in the global media are virtually all located in North America and Western Europe, with a sprinkling in East and Southeast Asia (see the map below). Smart cities are perceived by industry experts as a rapidly maturing market in the north. Not surprisingly, smart city champions are actively exploring new investment opportunities, especially in emerging markets and also lower income settings. They are keenly aware that almost 90 per cent of future population growth will be concentrated in Africa and Asia. ...

Cargotecture – the Rise of Recycling Shipping Containers

Cargotecture – the Rise of Recycling Shipping Containers | design and roll | Scoop.it

One man’s trash is said to be another man’s treasure, and now old cargo shipping containers are rapidly becoming sought-after treasure in the architecture industry.


The term cargotecture, coined in 2005 by HyBrid Architecture, is used to describe any building partially or entirely built from recycled ISO shipping containers. It may seem strange that such a simple, aesthetically-unappealing box could be so loved by modern architects, but the increased use of reclaimed materials in architecture is starting to show no bounds.

In a world dominated by mass production, architects are being forced to find alternative ways of designing buildings that will make the smallest impact on the earth. Extending the life of discarded materials and saving salvageable items from landfill is a completely viable approach.

Shipping containers are resistant to fire, termites, hurricanes and earthquakes, proving themselves to be extremely resilient.

 

Somewhat like stacking blocks of Lego, steel or aluminum shipping containers are a perfectly strong building block...

Natalie Curtis's curator insight, March 8, 2013 9:27 AM

I love that I've finally found the neologism for this type of architecture finally! Cargotecture is an upcoming trend in the architect's world and this article is actually one of the most brief and yet informative blogs I may have found in my short search, so far of these shipping container homes and buildings. The containers prove to be a very useful and easily moveable. They are in great abundance, which is fantastic since they are so often used for their resilience to fire, termites, hurricanes and earthquakes. So there's my answer finally to why these containers are becoming so popular amongst architects.

Sustainable Design | Green Hotelier | design and roll | Scoop.it
Increasingly under pressure to improve efficiencies, hoteliers are realising that good design in new-build properties can significantly reduce operational costs as well as their overall impact on the environment.

As the “green” building movement gains momentum, there are increasing opportunities for hoteliers to take advantage of the latest innovations in sustainable design and incorporate them into their new-build properties, says Mike Scott

The hotels of tomorrow will look, feel and operate vastly differently to those of today. They will have to. Increasingly under pressure to improve efficiencies, hoteliers are realising that good design in new-build properties can significantly reduce operational costs as well as their overall impact on the environment.

According to the UN World Tourism Organisation, the tourism sector as a whole contributed an estimated 5% of total global emissions in 2005, with accommodation contributing a fifth of those emissions. The report observes that: “Hotels rely on a wide range of natural resource inputs and generate significant waste through their lifecycle....

Blue Plan for Copenhagen Harbour by Tredje Natur and PK3

Blue Plan for Copenhagen Harbour by Tredje Natur and PK3 | design and roll | Scoop.it

Danish architects Tredje Natur and PK3 have designed a series of artificial islands that will transform Copenhagen's harbour into a recreational area filled with wildlife and water sports.

 

"Research shows that there is a clear connection between the physical activity level of humans and the experienced accessibility to nature – the easier the experienced accessibility to nature is, the bigger desire for physical activity. Other research indicates that stays in nature have a positive influence on the mental health of humans and on the reduction of stress," said the architects.
