Green Village Set along the terraced slopes of the Ayung River in Sibang, Bali, Green Village is a master-planned community of eighteen dramatically unique homes, each custom designed, rigorously engineered, and hand-constructed to embody the inherent strengths and versatility of bamboo. Within walking distance of the Green School, the architectural innovations and structural vocabulary are an extension of the sustainable principles and artisan craftsmanship of the world famous campus. According to Elora Hardy, creative director of the Ibuku design team, “Green Village has redefined the potential of sustainable materials. It is a place where where people connect with nature. We build light on the land. With very few resources or attention a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years, and that house can stand strong for a lifetime.
index Probably one of the most ubiquitous and necessary requirements in any aquarium is the proper movement of water within, as well as to and from, the tank. While for many years the main way this was done in tanks was through air stones and lift tubes, most modern aquarium systems rely on electric water pumps of one form or another. Water pumps are typically more powerful, quieter and much more flexible in terms of the applications they can be used for than their earlier air-powered counter parts. The goal of this article, then, is to describe how these water pumps operate, how one goes about selecting a pump for a given application and then how best to install or place your pump for that use.

Eco-Dome: Moon Cocoon - Cal-Earth Building Designs The Eco-Dome is a small home design of approximately 400 square feet (40 sq. meters) interior space. It consists of a large central dome, surrounded by four smaller niches and a wind-scoop, in a clover leaf pattern. Learning and building an Eco-Dome is the next stage after building a small emergency shelter and provides hands-on learning experience in the essential aspects of Superadobe construction. It's small size of approximately 400 square feet (interior space), makes it a manageable structure for the first time owner builder. Colorful Binishell Dome Homes Made from Inflatable Concrete Cost Just $3,500 Architect Nicoló Bini uses a technique similar to covering a balloon with papier-mâché to build his concrete Binishell domed homes. He starts with a two-dimensional shape on the ground, adds wooden form around an air bladder and reinforcing steel rebar, and then places a load of concrete that sets and slowly rises from the ground. Hit the jump to learn more about these unusual structures.
Automated Generation of Interactive 3D Exploded View Diagrams Wilmot Li, Maneesh Agrawala, Brian Curless, David Salesin We present a system for creating and viewing interactive exploded views of complex 3D models. In our approach, a 3D input model is organized into an explosion graph that encodes how parts explode with respect to each other.
The Monolithic Dome Monolithic Domes are constructed following a method that requires a tough, inflatable Airform, steel-reinforced concrete and a polyurethane foam insulation. Each of these ingredients is used in a technologically specific way. Our domes can be designed to fit any architectural need: homes, cabins, churches, schools, gymnasiums, arenas and stadiums, bulk storages, landlord dwellings and various other privately or publicly owned facilities. Monolithic Domes meet FEMA standards for providing near-absolute protection and have a proven ability to survive tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, most manmade disasters, fire, termites and rot.
The Future of Energy FilmThe Future of Energy Film Want to support the movement? The Future of Energy is a non-profit film. Even though we've finished production, we're still actively seeking funds to cover the cost of music licensing, stock footage, and editing fees for post production. In addition, our plan is to tour the film internationally through schools, colleges, and local communities. Sorbent Cross-section of a gas mask, with sorbent material visible A material similar to molecular sieve material, which acts by adsorption (attracting molecules to its surface). It has a large internal surface area and good thermal conductivity. It is typically supplied in pellets of 1 mm to 2 mm diameter and roughly 5 mm length or as grains of the order 1 mm. Occasionally as beads up to 5 mm diameter. They are typically made from aluminium oxide with a porous structure.Materials used to absorb other materials due to their high affinity for doing so.
Monolithic Homes When it comes to homes, Monolithic does not believe in one size or one style fits all. Your Monolithic Dome home can be everything you need and everything you want in the home of your dreams. It can be small and cozy or spacious and luxurious; one-storied or multistoried; at ground level, totally underground or earth-bermed; built in virtually any location and environment. Flexibility is the key idea behind our home designs. The interior of your Monolithic Dome home can be partitioned into rooms or areas that fit your needs and wants.
The One Community Duplicable City Center Open Source Hub One Community is designing an open source and free-shared duplicable city center to save resources and help model a redefinition of how people choose to live. This structure will function as a recreation center, large-scale dining hall, large-scale laundry facility, and alternative for visitors that might not (at first) be comfortable staying in the earthbag or straw bale hand-constructed homes. As part of One Community’s global-transformation and duplicable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities model, this one building will function as a revenue stream and communal-use and resource-saving replacement of individual kitchens, laundry rooms, and living rooms for all residents of One Community. This page contains the following sections related to the design and function of this building:
Joining an Ecovillage Each time more people are willing to leave their actual life behind and step into a more fulfilling life situation. We are so happy to see this tendency, but many times it is not easy to find or create a project. Supporting all this seeking people and help to establish more and more Eco villages is one of the main reasons for creating this website. Read here what you can do: Presenting yourself First make sure your profile is well set up, so you awake the interest of potential partners or existing projects and help them to find you.
