Are bookshops still available in today’s generation? With the popular reading device like the Amazon Kindle and the Apple iPad available in the market today, bookshops are surely reducing in number. Well, whatever it is, what’s good about this bookshop that the Campaign has is that, it does not only provide its readers the right knowledge that they need but it also helps save the environment, why, because this unique foldaway is made of cardboard, thus can be easily recyclable after use. The foldaway bookshop is installed with the aim to hold architecture books as part of the London Festival of Architecture. You know what; this eco-friendly festival bookshop can be a perfect tool for any school libraries. This will definitely make the student aware about the numerous environmental issues , and will eventually help in promoting environmental care. Campaign’s stylish yet eco-friendly Foldaway Bookshop will remains on its place at the festival until July 4.
Creating an eco friendly place could be a big challenge to any architects and if they have done it they way it should be is a great achievement for them. Ecosistema Urbano Architects are now in the process of developing the Eco Boulevard in Vallecas, in Madrid Spain. A public place will have self-sufficient facilities to support everybody’s needs with their daily activities within the area. This project belongs to everyone, and has a goal of creating an atmosphere that invites and promotes activity in an urban public space. It is great to hear that we can now live green without sacrificing what we are currently enjoying with our present lifestyle.
Text from the website:
The goal of this project is to create an atmosphere that invites and promotes activity in an urban public space that is “sick” due to “bad planning”.
The simple climatic adaptation systems installed in the trees of air are of the evapotranspirative type, which is often used in greenhouses. This aerotechnical practice or artificial adaptation is not a part of a commercial strategy. On the contrary, it tries to undo the leisure – consumption binomial and reactivate the public space by creating climatically adapted environments (8ºC-10ºC cooler than the rest of the street in summer) where citizens will be once again active participants in public spaces.
Safety, Security and comfort are what the Swiv door wanted to bring to its user. Designed by Louisa Kwan, it has a steel panel that records the palm details of every user using the electro magnetic technology and when they enter, they will just lay their palm on the steel panel and when the panel recognizes, the door will open. What’s good with the Swiv door is that it cannot be opened by any physical means of strength because of the technology it uses, meaning it strictly prevents unauthorized entry. You will not only feel the safety with the Swiv door but also it is very futuristic that will make every user feel the spirit of technology and style.
