Estudio Arq. Jorge de Vita , Arquitectura & Valuaciones BLDG BLOG | Today's Buildings The origin of the television set was heavily shrouded in both spiritualism and the occult, Stefan Andriopoulos writes in his new book Ghostly Apparitions. In fact, as its very name implies, the television was first conceived as a technical device for seeing at a distance: like the telephone (speaking at a distance) and telescope (viewing at a distance), the television was intended as an almost magical box through which we could watch distant events unfold, a kind of technological crystal ball. Andriopoulos's book puts the TV into a long line of other "optical media" that go back at least as far as popular Renaissance experiments involving technologically-induced illusions, such as concave mirrors, magic lanterns, disorienting walls of smoke, and other "ghostly apparitions" and "phantasmagoric projections" created by specialty devices. A Magic Lantern for Watching Events at a Distance Part Tomb, Part Church, Part Planetarium It was a multifaceted and extraordinary undertaking.
Permacultura 'Mandala de la permacultura', ilustración de Graham Burnett, que resume la ética y los principios del diseño permacultural (utilizado con permiso). casa nueva de adobe y paja La permacultura es una rama de diseño ecológico, la ingeniería ecológica, y el diseño del medio ambiente que se desarrolla la arquitectura sostenible y los sistemas agrícolas de automantenimiento modelados desde los ecosistemas naturales. El término permacultura (como un método sistemático) fue acuñado por primera vez por los australianos Bill Mollison y David Holmgren en 1978. La permacultura es una filosofía de trabajar con, y no contra la naturaleza; de prolongada y atenta observación más que prolongado y la mano de obra sin pensar, y de ver las plantas y los animales en todas sus funciones, en lugar de tratar cualquier zona como un sistema de un solo producto." - Bill Mollison. Orígenes[editar] La permacultura está en la actualidad bien establecida a lo largo y ancho del mundo, existiendo muchos ejemplos de su uso.
Microsiervos ASGA Arquitectos Bilbao The Outlands - Build your own log cabin undefined BUILD A Handsome, sturdy and affordable Log Cabin. The log cabin is still a great choice if you want to build your own home. BY MICHAEL CHOTINER; Illustrations by Harry Schaare Mankind's preference for living in structures made of natural timbers is longstanding and well documented. Each area developed its own distinct methods, from the square hewn log homes of France to the dovetail-joined cabins of Germany. Log building has always required a lot of patient, physically demanding work. Here's a short course in log building to show you what's involved. Opinions about log selection and proper cutting season vary with the individual craftsman and the building locale. Trees should be felled in early winter. The best seasoning method is to air-dry the logs for one to two years-the longer the better. Many pioneer cabins were built without foundations because they were constructed in haste or meant to be temporary shelter. Cutting the corner notches is a fivestep procedure. 1.
Cuando la naturaleza llama: la vida al margen de la sociedad de consumo En 1845, Henry David Thoreau abandona la casa familiar de Concord (EEUU) y se instala en la cabaña de madera que él mismo ha construido junto a la laguna de Walden. Thoreau no se marcha a los bosques escapando de la vida, sino movido por el deseo de vivirla intensamente de principio a fin. “Fui a los bosques porque quería vivir deliberadamente, enfrentar solo los hechos esenciales de la vida, y ver si no podía aprender lo que ella tenía que enseñar, no sea que cuando estuviera por morir descubriera que no había vivido”. De aquella experiencia solitaria surgieron las líneas de Walden, un ensayo en defensa de una existencia libre y salvaje, un canto a la simplificación de la vida, a la naturaleza como la verdadera vía para escapar de las esclavitudes de la sociedad industrial. Vida al margen del mercado Entre 2010 y 2013, Bruy vivió de forma nómada, haciendo autostop a través de Europa, sin ningún rumbo o destino fijado de antemano. Bruy se topó con gente muy distinta.
Minid.net Below The Clouds Rikkert The Minimalists V Houses at Verana | Been-Seen There are many ways to build employee quarters, temporary housing for those who decide to come work for a season at Verana. This summer we decided to build some additional housing and the images here show you what we came up with. V-houses at V-erana. An experiment which turned out to be exciting to design, to build and after all to live in. The idea to build those ‘outlooks’ came from Jo Scheer who had build his ‘hoochs’ in Puerto Rico and Oregon. He used mainly Bamboo or Douglas fir poles; we decided to use metal instead. With 16’ off the ground they also created an instant spectacular view where there normally wouldn’t be one. For privacy reasons we spaced all ‘rooms’ about 18’ apart. And, once we had figured out how to build the first one, all others were just a repetition. The houses are self contained. Go here if you are interested in some construction images or send us an email if you would like more details about the project. 2008 Jan 31 6 responses. share this Back to articles
BETONBABE SketchUp. Construction Matters examines the relation between advances in construction technology and artistic form in modern architecture. Please support this project by backing it on Kickstarter. As you might know, the editor of this blog graduated from architecture school more than a year ago and is no longer surrounded by beautiful books. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (and longer) she sits in front of a Windows desktop computer with two monitors. Therefore, the editor of this blog was not able to post things the way she used to. Therefore, she will start posting things again from now - but things will be different. You will see: The Real World of Architecture. PS: If she happens to have enough time after work to scan books, you will of course still find inspirational images on this blog. A participatory facade installation for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale next month. Please share! BETONBABE + university library = many posts apologies.
Co-Existence To put it to you plainly and not beat around the bush, I have always expected myself to do something GREAT. Something BIG. Actually about doing a lot of GREAT and BIG things. I have often found myself at a crossroad due to these expectations, lost, questioning if what I am doing is great enough or even great from the beginning? Is it possibly a feeling of urgency towards what I believe is happening in the world and a desire to be part of something that gives to the world? It is not until recently that I could see these expectations and I have therefore never really taken the time to reflected upon it. It is a picture that has in many ways taken away the excitement of the puzzle that I see life being. But it is you how have to choose them, or choose how you reflect upon them in order to see where they fit. I read the article ( and paused. in the puzzle that is life.
