Suburban Nomad: Hybrid Igloo, Yurt, Tent + Tipi Home Idea The juxtaposition of such lifestyle extremes – fixed-space suburban living and nomadic world-travel dwelling – makes for a fascinating conceptual challenge. It was, in fact, similarly neighboring opposites that gave rise to the idea in the mid of design student living on a lovely nature-filled campus but surrounded by suburbia on all sides. John Paananen took it upon himself to discover what would happen if he were to make over one of the most mobile kinds of traditional buildings – the tipi, with inspiration from its yurt, tent and igloo cousins – turning it into a stationary home with all of the creature comforts to be found in contemporary suburbs. Instead of a portable and organically-evolved design, he chose to force-fit the general shape and style of a conventional nomadic dwelling into the space and settings. The results?

Cat Inspiration Search Results You should follow Designspiration on Twitter and Facebook for site news. — Shelby Designspiration Search Color Mediumsmalllarge Discover When Typography Speaks Louder Than Words Advertisement Clever graphic designers love to use typography to explore the interaction between the look of type and what type actually says. In communicating a message, a balance has to be achieved between the visual and the verbal aspects of a design. Sometimes, however, designers explore the visual aspect of type to a much greater extent than the verbal. In these cases, the visual language does all the talking. This article explores when the visual elements of typography speak louder than words.

$1000 Egg House on Wheels for a Working Urban Architect The newly-graduated architect rarely has the luxury of living in an owned home, and may even find their starting salary insufficient to afford a decent apartment within walking (or riding) distance of the office. For a three-figure sum, this designer has solved both problems at once via a unique DIY dwelling project. Dai Haifei needed to save money and spent so much time at work anyway, the solution was strange but simple: construct a livable abode that can be wheeled and parked in the empty space right outside of the workplace. It isn’t much – just a bed, a lamp and a water tank inside – but it is sufficient for someone trying to save and scrape together a living.

Picture of the Day: A Tiny River House in Serbia «TwistedSifter Oct 17, 2012 My friend Dan G. emailed me this wonderful photograph by Irene Becker that shows a tiny house in the middle of the Drina River near the town of Bajina Basta, Serbia. The capture was highlighted by National Geographic as one of the best ‘Photos of the Day‘ for the month of August 2012. The Drina is a 346 km long river that forms much of the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. It is the longest tributary of the Sava River and the longest karst river in the Dinaric Alps. Illustrations Of Superheroes IRL We always catch superheroes doing cool stuff like flying, running real fast, or beating up on bad guys. We don’t really get to see the normal, regular-people type stuff like teeth brushing, taco eating or bathroom pooping. Enter Artist Greg Guillemin. He shows us the other side of superheroes. The not so super side. There’s Batman and Robin making out like there’s no tomorrow, Wonder Woman stuffing her bra, even Superman picking his nose!

j'aime beaucoup plus pinterest de pearltrees I like way more pinterest than pearltrees by sidneygreene Mar 28

Unfortunately, I don't know any like this that's free. Closest to icyte is webnotes (also paid). Workarounds: Evernote can also include PDFs and finally Mendeley has recently integrated with something called papercritic: by kbpc172 Mar 4

For maryflager: Neither do I. At any rate, a pleasure for me to have one of my pearltrees beutified by your decent comments along with the kind comments by other 'pearltree'iers :) 2 march by mshaddd Mar 2

I don't know how I got involved in this conversation. Not that I mind. I just don't know how it happened... :/ lol by maryflager Mar 2

Hello there federlessen, thanks for your kind remark. If it was sent to me then, I have to say that my pearltrees are non profit-collaborative work. Best by mshaddd Mar 1

hey kat;thats paid service.any free service avalible?is there any free site for pdf? by kunal.deshpande Feb 29

You may also want to have a look at iCyte-- allows you to also annotate pdfs. Diigo can seem a bit odd at first, but it's really fantastic. by kbpc172 Feb 15

I've started playing with pinterest more seriously and like it a lot. My favorites right now are pearltrees, pinterest, and diigo. I have to admit that for research, I think diigo might be the best- the ability to annotate, add notes, generate a report, means that a bookmark can be much more than just a link and is wonderful for full scale research. I still love Pearltrees- the ability for visual organization is great and adding pearltrees means greater levels of organization- which can be good... or bad...that said, i like appreciate pinterest more and more- if you imagine each board as a main pearl, it can be interesting for stuff like collaborative work with students or other shared projects- less levels of organization, but still interesting and very visual. by kbpc172 Feb 9

Ok, so are these comments based on my pearl of pinterest, or just in general?? I'm still trying to figure this thing out!! Lol by piperglam Feb 2

Do you think that one is more inherently social than the other? I find I don't get a lot of comments on my pearls (except this one). But, that could just b/c no one is interested in the same things I am :( by pattychanman Feb 1

I love Pinterest and Pearltrees—there are some things you just cannot pin and others you plain cannot pearl. Together they organize my inspiration perfectly. by a2adrienne Feb 1

I don't think of pinterest as an alternate for pearl trees because you cannot make a mind map in pinterest. This can be much more than simply organizing my interests. by eimat Feb 1

I believe it's good for anyone who's more of a visual thinker/organiser than text/verbal, or othrewise. I enjoy it. There's possibly more females invilved because it's used heavily for fashion. Lends itself well to single frame comics. You coud use it to show what books/noves you'rre reading by showing a pic of the cover, then addind a short review or link to a review. (Or write a stort/book an pin the cover...) There's a lot of recipies pinned, and could be used for much else. by eimat Jan 29

I wouldn't go as far as saying it is especially for woman, it uses graphics in the way that pealtree uses webs of small bubbles to communicate to users and is more for people who are visual learners. As you said it is just another alternative and I find it just as interesting and inspiring. by jake_f Jan 26

I use it for buying lots and lots of gifts... love homemade and unique items.... by kbhall1957 Jan 25
