After the Renaissance museums went public with palatial structures where the idea of the gallery arose, a space to display paintings and sculpture. Later, museums became centers of education, researching, collecting, and actively provoking thought and the exchange of ideas. By presenting the highest achievements of culture, museums became a stabilizing and regenerative force, crusading for quality and excellence. The role of the modern museum is both aesthetic and didactic, both Temple and Forum. The design of contemporary museum can be characterized by two polar approaches.

Tri-core Pillow I LOVE my pillow! and service was excellent Review by Thryn(Posted on 4/9/14) I can not express how wonderful both my core pillow and the customer service was.

Friction & Force of Gravity Support Slim Leaning Deck Chair It looks daunting if not downright dangerous – two side supports, anchored to nothing and angled away from normal (in the sense of: ninety degrees from the ground) look little like legs, and the seat swings freely between them. Still, this is basic physics at its best – adding the gravitational pull of the Earth as well as human weight makes it more stable, not less. While it would not work in space or some other zero-or-anti-gravity situation, it would be a wonderful seat to lean against your home on your deck or porch. Designed by Bernhard Burkard, the connections and materials are quite basic – metal fasteners hold together a wood frame, which in turn supports a canvas lounge chair. Rubber stoppers add frictional resistance to hold the whole thing in place.
