Comments Off on Adelaide races to beat Copenhagen as the world’s first carbon-neutral city

Adelaide is setting its sights on becoming the world’s first carbon neutral city. The government has set a goal of attracting $10 bn in green investment to South Australia in a new strategy paper, which will be available for public comment. “The federal government’s emissions targets are appallingly low, it means they are giving up on the world staying below a 2C temperature rise,” Ian Hunter, climate change and environment minister for South Australia, told the Guardian.

Architects Use Film Techniques to Design the ‘Cross-Cutting’ Masterplan in Norway

Comments Off on Architects Use Film Techniques to Design the ‘Cross-Cutting’ Masterplan in Norway

The site is divided into three main areas with the historical center working as a connective tissue between the north and the south. It is further fragmented by the motorway, which divides it into two parts going through the central historical zone. Four different conditions were recognized regarding the distribution of various typologies, and the subdivision that accompanies this spatial arrangement aims to create stronger links between them. The architects proposed a new planning strategy that introduces commercial activities and communal spaces to an area oversaturated by residential buildings. The strategy includes pedestrian and green areas and the introduction of a new area which would consist of ten 4-8-storey high buildings. These would be built using locally sourced materials. Each building would comprise apartments of different sizes, ranging from 60 to 150 square meters. The towers ’ roofs would be partially covered in vegetation. + Stefano Rocchetti + EUROPAN 12 Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: architecture competition , Cross-Cutting Dikemark , Europan 12 , Europan competition , green architecture , locally sourced materials , Luca Vernocchi , masterplan design , Norway Architecture , Norway masterplans , Stefano Rocchetti , Sustainable buildings

Comments Off on Australian Researchers Propose Turning Millions of Tons of Pig Waste into Alternative Energy for China

Photo via Shutterstock Where there are million of animals, there are millions of tons of waste. In a clever solution to a major waste disposal problem, Australian researchers have found a way to convert 1.4 million tons of Chinese pig excrement into fertilizer and a source of alternative energy. The project, which is operated by the Adelaide, Australia Cooperate Research Centre For Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment ( CRC CARE ), has won a national science award for its solution for pig waste in China.

Secto lamps fall into the latter category. Designed by architect Seppo Koho for the Finnish company Secto Design , these wooden lamps , which have been handcrafted from birch by local cabinet makers, have a modern form, but they also have a classic, timeless quality.

Ventus: The Computer Game that Uses Crowd-Sourced Info to Map Global CO2 Emissions

Comments Off on Ventus: The Computer Game that Uses Crowd-Sourced Info to Map Global CO2 Emissions

While not everyone can become a full-time climate activist, it is still possible to contribute to the battle against global warming. Researchers from Arizona State University have created an online computer game called Ventus that serves as a repository that maps the world’s CO2 emissions from power plants. Led by Kevin Gurney, the program allows those living near generation sites to enter the name and location of the facilities along with how much and what type of fuel is used, the amount of electricity generated, and overall CO2 released into the atmosphere.
