Human life throughout history has developed in alternating waves of migration and settlement. The movement of people across the earth led to the discovery of new territories as well as the creation of new communities among strangers forming towns, cities, and nations. Navigating this duality between exploration and settlement, movement and stillness is a fundamental essence of what it means to be human. In the aftermath of global wars and natural disasters, the world has witnessed the displacement of millions of people across continents. Refugees seeking shelter from disasters carry from their homes what they can and resettle in unknown lands, often starting with nothing but a tent to call home. “Weaving a home” reexamines the traditional architectural concept of tent shelters by creating a technical, structural fabric that expands to enclose and contracts for mobility while providing the comforts of contemporary life (heat, running water, electricity, storage, etc.)

Une maison en sac de sable Vous souvenez-vous de vos jeux d’enfants, avec vos frères/sœurs/amis, lorsque vous vous cachiez derrière des sacs de sable, comme à la guerre ? Et bien il existe depuis longtemps maintenant une technique de construction similaire à cela, qui permet d’obtenir des habitations très efficaces et performantes énergétiquement à des prix imbattables. A l’origine utilisée dans les pays africains, elle s’exporte peu à peu dans nos contrées plus tempérées . Regardons quelques années en arrière : les armées du monde, bien qu’elles ne soient les meilleurs exemples existants d’écologie et de « durabilité », ont toujours utilisé des sacs de sable pour les bases, camps provisoires… Les avantages pour eux étaient multiples : protection contre les projectiles (en fonction de la taille et de l’épaisseur des sacs, ils peuvent protéger d’une simple balle à un obus !)

Farmer builds a house for just £150 using materials he found in skips... and the current tenant pays their rent in MILK Michael Buck used only natural materials or unwanted items to build 'cob house' at bottom of his gardenHe said he wanted to challenge the notion that paying for a house should take a lifetimeHe is now renting out the property to a worker on a neighouring farm, who pays for her lodgings in milk By David Wilkes for the Daily Mail Published: 11:32 GMT, 25 November 2013 | Updated: 02:06 GMT, 26 November 2013 It looks like something straight out of Middle Earth – and the story behind it is almost as fantastical.

Geodesic Dome Calculator Our geodesic dome calculator will calculate the length and number of struts for 2V, 3V, and 4V geodesic domes based on the specified radius. It's a useful tool for planning the size of your dome. Enter a dome radius and click Calculate to begin. To calculate the strut lengths enter a value for the dome's Radius below. Numbers must be entered in decimal format, IE 10.5 feet, not 10 feet 6 inches. Use the pulldown menu to choose your units.

Making a Cover for our Geodesic Dome Making the cover for the geodesic dome turned out to be quite a project. Patrick and I spent quite a lot of time talking about it, planning it out, and brainstorming better ideas. When we finally started, we realized that we didn't have a workspace big enough to lay out the tarps!

Rick Bono's Geodesic Dome Program - DOME 4.80 DOME 4.80ar.02 DOME is a program, by Rick Bono, for creating models of geodesic domes, spheres and related models. I have modified DOME 4.80 slightly to add support for OFF output, which can then be processed and displayed by Antiprism and other packages (but see also, the Antiprism geodesic program, which will make Class I, II, and III models based on general polyhedra). While I was looking at this I fixed some small problems I had getting DOME to build. I converted the build to use the Autotools, which will hopefully help with portability.

In search for renewable energy sources, could trash be king? Now Playing Forget solar: New push for waste as renewable energy source With the massive "People's Climate March" and the meeting of world leaders at the U.N. The 2×1 rectangle and Domes Next week I am going to be at the Gathering for Gardner, an exciting meeting of mathematicians, magicians, puzzlers and others inspired by the life and work of Martin Gardner. This post is a version of the talk I will be giving. The 2×1 rectangle is not one of mathematics most celebrated shapes. Yet it is so much more flexible than the more common square.
