Sumizara Charcoal Ashtray by Akihilog Kumagaya

Have you heard of a charcoal ashtray already? Well this is now the time to introduce this wonderful creation of Akihilog Kumagaya called Sumizara. A charcoal ashtray can put out cigarettes and deodorizes at the same time. That is not the only work the charcoal ashtray can do, because it is coated by coat of charcoal that has an antiseptic and dust control action, which is a great feature. In addition, burn resistance and deodorant is such a wonderful thing the Sumizara has. I think this one will not only be a prefect thing to have in a house, but rather I find it important.

Green Lighthouse Design : Beautiful to Our Eyes and Our Earth

Commended as the inspiration of sustainability, the Green Lighthouse by Christensen & Co Architects did a ground breaking last October 29, 2008. The building has a great structural design, which is not only beautiful to our eyes but is also use to reduce CO2 emissions. Why it is called as sustainable? Simply because the proportion between windows and façade has been carefully calculated to make sure that the building will not consume large amount of energy for heating. What’s good about this building is that it has the ability to collect excess solar energy during the summertime and put it in an underground store and use it later when the power of the sun is out.

NASA is Planning to Build Solar Powered Satellite

Global Warming issue makes the people getting aware and look for various remedies in caring our nature already. The National Space Society Beno Bova just did it, and has strongly recommends that the next president of the United States should commission a US$1 billion solar powered satellite from NASA before their second term ends. In this way, people can now save from the high prices of gas. The satellite works out by harnessing energy directly from the sun and distributes it back to the receiver on Earth using microwave frequencies. The concept can be old but I think this will really help us from the sky rocketing prices of gas.

Brunner House Design that Preserve and Respect The Building’s Original Footprint

Another great architectural design has been created by the Luca Selva Architects in the form of the Brunner House. Owned by a pastor’s family with three kids, the property has been bought with an existing pavilion-like structure in it that served as a doctor practice in 2005. The family intended to made an expansion in it and turned it into their home. The architects did a different kind of expansion just to keep the surrounding garden area untouched by extending vertically rather than horizontally. Because of that idea, they have preserved and respected the building’s original footprint. The Brunner House is located in Witterswil.
