With the aim to turn waste materials derived from animals back into animals, Swiss designer Adrien Rovero has design the Skinni. SKinni is a collection of toys made from leather off-cuts in collaboration with leather manufacturer Thomas Posenanski. The leather off-cuts are thencut using a computerized cutting machine and folded it into animal shapes then secured with rubber fastenings. This can be a perfect toy for our kids. In this way, we can show love to our family and to the environment at the same time particularly those animals that use to protect us at times. With these toys also, our little one can also live the green life with our help.
Many of us claims to have very limited space but with the creation of the Loci Studio Urban Eco-Garden-Beijing, it seems like we do not have the right complain on why we do not have our own garden even when we are living in big cities like Beijing. The Urban Eco-Garden is a project of Loci Studio aimed to transform a vacant inner-city backyard in Central Beijing.
The project resulted into creating a productive garden and transforming the then lifeless and useless space into a productive one. This idea may be old to some cities like in New York City, where a rooftop garden is made, but in China, urban farming is not common. This project will surely help address the increasing problem on environmental pollution, food contamination and soaring cost of living in China.
Today, the city backyard in Beijing has seven large raised vege-beds. The bed collected only rainwater and has automatic drip irrigation. Fertilizers used for the eco-garden beds are all natural too with the rotatable chicken coup designed to fit perfectly over each of the seven vege-beds. In addition to the chicken coup and rainwater collection system, the garden will also soon have to have an aquaculture or aquaponic system, which will serve as the source of edible fish as well as serves as an irrigation system for the aquaponic plants growing in the garden.
Loci Studio Urban Eco-Garden-Beijing will have numerous plants including cucumber, tomato, eggplant, leafy greens and Chinese herbs. At present, the harvest from the garden is good enough to support three adults. The idea is becoming popular because the occupants are sharing the products produced by Loci Studio Urban Eco-Garden-Beijing to the community.

Mostly of the eco-friendly architecture I have heard are made of recycled materials or have featured different eco-friendly features like solar power, wind mills, and the like. The Recyclable Basketball Stadium is very new to me. I have never heard of a recyclable building ever since, until the birth of the Recyclable Basketball Stadium in London, which just recently had its groundbreaking. Constructed and designed for 2012 Olympic Games, the Basketball Stadium is designed to be deconstructed or recycled, which is obvious a reason enough to call it green architecture. In addition, the building is made of 1,000 tons of recyclable steel.
