Red+Housing / OBRA Architects

More images and architect’s description after the break. Architecture on the Edge of Survival involves the development of an original prototype of emergency housing for future potential deployment in areas of natural or man-made disaster anywhere in the world. Emergency housing from the point of view of design is only an extreme form of architecture. Its context is that of almost unsustainable conditions, and its object, the creation of an environment we can inhabit temporarily while living on the edge. Red+Housing is proposed with the knowledge that, when living on the edge of survival, action needs to be decisive and precise. 01. 02. 03. 04. 05. 06. 07. 08. 09.

Eco Tech: Inflatable Solar Skin allows inefficient buildings to generate solar energy

Architectural firms are envisioning new buildings that will be able to generate energy for themselves with a solar energy generating façade. But with most of the metropolis already converted into a concrete jungle there has to be a way to make the already existing skyscrapers green. Designers over at Studio Formwork have tried to do just that with a new product design known as Solar Skin. The Solar Skin is a lightweight unitized system of inflatable solar components that can be zipped together to form a temporary skin that provides an inefficient building access to the growing trend of onsite energy generation, without any renovation. ENERGÍAS VERDES. WIND ENERGY. New Wind Turbine Is Silent, Sleek and Designed to Catch City Winds. If you launch a clean energy business in Manhattan it’s almost a given you’ll be inspired to start designing products specifically for the urban environment.

New Wind Turbine Is Silent, Sleek and Designed to Catch City Winds

Urban Green Energy has just launched a new, one-kilowatt wind turbine designed specifically for city rooftop use! A machine certainly made for the modern dweller, the near silent Eddy GT turbine is a chic piece of wind technology that rotates on a vertical axis, optimizing wind capture, even as the air stream shifts within the dynamic city landscape. The Eddy GT takes up just 40 square feet to generate its kilowatt — to get that much juice from a solar array, you would need up to 400 square feet, which is a tough sell in major cities like New York and San Francisco. While not a light investment at $7,000 per turbine, Urban Green Energy CEO Nick Blitterswyk estimates that in California, which offers a rebate, you could break even in 10 years, and without the $3,000 rebate, it could take 20 years.

Urban windmills harm the environment. "The problem is not the windmill - it is the wind" Small windmills have been around for some decades, but in recent years the focus has shifted on developing their potential use in an urban environment (where most of us live).

Urban windmills harm the environment

It’s difficult to keep track of the numerous proposed new designs, meant to be placed on the roof or on a mast in the garden. Small windmills in built-up environments are a remarkable trend. Through the ages, windmills have always demanded a free flow of strong wind. LEDS. El wire - Tron Costume. Our Elite EL Wire emits a spectacular uniform light source, 360 degrees throughout its entire length.

El wire - Tron Costume

EL Wire is Non-Toxic, cold to the touch, very durable, and resistant to water and ice. Just add 2 AA batteries and this kit is ready to go. This is the wire they used at burning man to make outfits that looked like a Tron Costume. Uses 2 AA batteries -- not included. For an additional control you can also purchase our new 9-Volt inverter allows the user to control the function (flash or steady on) like our regular EL Wire kits but when set on the flashing mode the user can control the speed of the flash and the intensity of the light.

Los nuevos nómadas abogan por simplificar su existencia renunciando a objetos innecesarios y, de paso, una nueva generación de diseñadores, emprendedores y compañías desarrollan abrigos minimalistas que puedan transportarse con el menor esfuerzo físico y económico. Algo así como el mínimo común denominador del abrigo humano, una vivienda que proteja de la intemperie, sea asequible y pueda transportarse con facilidad.

The Mobile Performance Venue (MPV) is made up of a revolutionary inflatable outer wall surrounding a central aluminium stage structure and can accommodate an audience of up to 3,500 people. Tectoniks collaborated with Various Architects on the design of the innovative inflatable skin - a process which involved the construction of a full scale mockup section.

Mobile Performance Venue - Various Architects. 2hD: An inflatable event space. Despite its large scale, the profiles of the structure were carefully designed to define an iconic and welcoming space, without overpowering or competing with the surrounding buildings of the museum. Public receptions, press events and film projections all took place inside the inflatable space during the museum's week-long reopening ceremonies. At night, the integrated lighting system transformed the structure into a beacon, softly glowing in the park (Photo: © Max Lerouge/LMCU) Drops of rain shimmering on the inflatable skin, made of satin rip-stop nylon fabric. 2hD were commissioned by the Lille Métropole Museum of Modern Art (LaM) to conceive an innovative pavilion to host the ceremonies celebrating the museum’s re-opening after five years of refurbishment and extension works. The structure was first installed in September 2010 to host thousands of visitors for the week long opening festivities.
