In Greenburgh, New York, a sustainable architecture has been built. It may not have the formal LEED certificate, but it has various green features that made the building sustainable. The Greenburgh’s public library is another green building by mid-town based Beatty, Harvey & Associates Architects. It does have various green features like the geothermal heating and cooling system, automated lighting controls, locally sourced materials, and a lobby floor that built from recycled rubber tires. The town had opened this library to the public back in December. It’s a $20 million, 45,000sqf library that is located adjacent to Interstate 287 in Westchester County.
Sustainable and enjoyable shelter is what the Bznbooze would bring to the community. This shelter will be built using straw bale construction method that is highly sustainable and cost efficient. Locally produced bales will be stacked and secured to one other with the use of a bamboo stakes that will extend beyond the top of the straw bale to support the roof structure. In addition, the roof will be built with an overlapping bamboo slats tat slopes down that let the rainwater falls down directly toward a rain garden located in front of the structure. Moreover, Bambooze has a circular opening made with a combination of recycled glass bottles and short bamboo shoots.

Just like the other Toyota products like the Toyota i-Real, Toyota PM, Toyota i-unit, Toyota i-foot and i-swing, the Toyota Winglet is just another unique creation for personal transportation. This Toyota Winglet has a body with an area like of an A3 size paper, with an electric motor attached, two wheels and internal sensors. Available in three designs, the S, M, and L, both have the same function but with center handles design differently. This vehicle maybe unique, however I do not find it useful. With a less than an hour life after an hour of charging, I find this product energy inefficient. However, this is perfect for short distance activity.
