There is a small island of just 10,000 people that is about to do something amazing – the entire island is cutting itself completely off of the traditional power grid and moving entirely to renewable energy. El Hierro, the smallest of the Canary Islands, plans to become completely self sufficient next month when its 11.5 megawatt wind farm kicks into gear. The island already has a water turbine which generates electricity for the island and by adding wind power, El Hierro will be able to go totally off-grid.

Shoib: Milson Island Sports Stadium Designed by Allen Jack + Cottier Architects You have seen several sports stadiums made up of steel and concrete but the Milson Island Sports Stadium proposal is one of a kind as it designed to offer people a more natural environment. Designed by Allen Jack and Cottier Architects , the stadium is located be located on a small island on Hawkesbury River in New South Wales, Australia. An eco-friendly and oval-shaped stadium, which is made up of 30 percent plywood, is used for sports activities and performances. Since the stadium is located on an island, it is accessible only by boat. Picture Gallery Milson Island Sports Stadium Milson Island Sports Stadium by Allen Jack + Cottier Architects In order to allow sportspersons and performers to have a feel of natural environment, the designers have glazed the bottom four feet of the stadium using vision glass. The stadium gets good natural light which comes inside through several skylights fixed above grills in the roof. The circular roof of the stadium is sloping, which takes the rainwater directly into basins but reject debris. Designers have used computer simulations to design the roof. Vent grills are present throughout the floor perimeter to allow the entry of air inside the stadium. The roof has 12 turbine vents to release the air. The unique design of the stadium will definitely attract children and it will allow them to remain connected with the nature while playing or performing at the stadium. Via: Evolo
