HELIOS REHAB SANCTUARY [Solar + Healing]
Within an ethereal rehabilitating tower, shades of society gather forming communities of hope.Occupants are treated with supported clean peaceful living. The tower, vertically zoned, focuses on healing the BODY (lower), MIND (mid-section) and SPIRIT (high).
Truly sustainable cities should focus on the economy of resources but also the health of the people. read more
LEPER CREATIVITY: THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL CYCLONOPEDIA SYMPOSIUM
March 11, 10AM – 6.30PM
Hailed by novelists, philosophers, artists, and cinematographers, Reza Negarestani’s Cyclonopedia: Complicity with Anonymous Materials is a key work in an emerging continental movement in philosophy, “speculative realism.” Cyclonopedia has attracted a wide-ranging and interdisciplinary audience, provoking a vital debate around the relationship between philosophy, geopolitics, geophysics, and the art world. read more
Extracting maximum driving pleasure from every drop of fuel is the aim of EfficientDynamics. With an array of intelligent technologies, it is able to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while simultaneously enhancing your vehicle’s dynamic performance.
The array of leading-edge technologies that are part of the EfficientDynamics philosophy are as diverse as they are innovative. From new fuel combustion technologies to lighter construction materials, low-friction components and improved aerodynamics all the way to comprehensive and highly sophisticated energy management. However, the aim of each of these innovations is the same: to deliver maximum driving pleasure from a minimum of fuel.
Zero-E Adds Eco-Bling to Architectural Modeling
BY Cliff KuangThu -via: Fast Company
Woods Bagot and Buro Happold have invented a design program that helps architects and engineers create zero-emissions buildings. These days, progressive architects and engineers wax philosophical about bio-mass digesters, photovoltaics, and water recycling systems. But what is their effect, really? Will they truly make a difference? Woods Bagot, an Australia-based architecture mega-firm, and Buro Happold, a British giant in architectural engineering, have teamed up to produce Zero-E, a system for modeling building performance that might help architects understand the precise effects of all the eco-bling that they add to their buildings. While systems like this already exist for building systems such as LEED, Woods Bagot claims that this is the first time anyone has developed something that integrates such advanced technologies–and tests them against the supremely rigorous standard of zero emissions.
