SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE CONTAINERS / by Luís De Garrido The book aims to demonstrate a methodology for sustainable architecture using containers. The containers have been designed to store and transport goods over long distances, and in a tight, economical and safe way. However, it also happens, the curious coincidence that the spaces that have been designed for storing and transporting goods, have a proper human scale. That is, they are also valid for designing living spaces. However, do not forget that the containers have not been designed to be lived in. Therefore, the first thing to be done when using containers in architecture is to ensure the minimum conditions of habitability inside. Therefore, Luis De Garrido analyzes all actions to be carried out in order to make habitable the buildings made ​​by containers, and also achieve real sustainable architecture using them. These actions include: 1. To illustrate the process, Luis De Garrido analyzes -exhaustively- 4 model buildings that he has projected using containers:

Architecture Brunelleschi, in the building of the dome of Florence Cathedral in the early 15th-century, not only transformed the building and the city, but also the role and status of the architect.[1][2] Architecture (Latin architectura, after the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων – arkhitekton – from ἀρχι- "chief" and τέκτων "builder, carpenter, mason") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. "Architecture" can mean: Architecture has to do with planning, designing and constructing form, space and ambience to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. The word "architecture" has also been adopted to describe other designed systems, especially in information technology.[3] Theory of architecture[edit] Historic treatises[edit] Modern concepts of architecture[edit] History[edit]

9 Very Common Figure Drawing Mistakes, And How to Avoid Them Over the last twenty-five years I have spent my fair share of time drawing and studying the human figure. As a result, I’ve come across several (actually, nine) common figure-drawing mistakes over and over again. Like any other art process, figure drawing is a fluid activity and impossible to pin down with exact rules—but if your goal is to create a more convincing life drawing, then these next few ideas will certainly help. Here are the nine common figure-drawing mistakes, along with their solutions: Mistake #1 – Drawing without a goal in sight More often than not, people immediately begin sketching without establishing some kind of intention in their mind first. Solution: Pause for a moment before beginning your drawing and to look at what you see in front of you. Mistake #2 – Failing to keep the figure on the page It’s always shame when heads, arms or feet get unintentionally cut out of a drawing, just because the artist has run out of room on the paper.

Homesteading with a Shipping Container House, Part I - Truth is Treason Posted on Apr 26, 2010 in Alternative Energy & Architecture , Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts Kevin Hayden Years ago, I saw a picture of a shipping container house. Here I am, years later, and I am just now starting my project. I know there are many people out there who will say, “That’s to ensure others against a poorly made structure…” “That’s so that a uniform safety standard is achieved.” So through my searches and aggravation, I finally discovered a small plot of land north east of the Oklahoma City metro. After talking to the land owners (a small, local real estate company), I discovered that they imposed building restrictions, too. After thinking about it from a “typical home” perspective, I interpreted this restriction as meaning the home site should have 4 walls, a roof and painted/finished exterior within 9 months. With this land company, they even offered to finance the cost of a new septic to be installed. I close the land deal in a few days and will post updates along the way.

re;char interview on Mashable Name: re:char Big Idea: Utilize organic waste to create carbon-negative charcoal, a substance that pulls CO2 from the air and helps crops grow taller and stronger. Why It's Working: Re:char's mission is about providing farmers — both at home and in developing countries such as Kenya — with conservation-oriented soil-boosting complexes that can double food output compared to traditional farming methods. How do you convince longtime traditional farmers that they could produce 200% more food every crop season if they mix their soil with specially-designed charcoal? "It's hard to get them to do anything out of their routine because it's very risky for them, especially when you're talking about their livelihood," says Aramburu. But once they saw the bountiful corn stalks that re:char could grow on Kenyan soil, they began to listen. The benefits of this charcoal are twofold: The chemical makeup of the biochar pulls carbon dioxide from the air and then feeds it back in the soil.
