The architects were inspired by the design of the Ariel Sharon National Park itself, which is a super ambitious project to turn one of the world’s largest garbage dumps into a flourishing green space . The reuse of shipping containers makes perfect sense, as an estimated 800,000 containers are abandoned by the maritime services each year. The use of containers will also save on production, costs and construction time, and the modular units are flexible enough to adapt to any changes required. RELATED: Tel Aviv’s notorious ‘Garbage Mountain’ transforms into world’s largest recycling park Yoav Messer Architects ‘ Econtainer Bridge is made of a continuous line of containers punctuated by balconies that provide space to stop, take a rest and enjoy the gorgeous views on each side. The bridge is set upon four columns, minimizing its impact on the ground. A great (re)use for shipping containers that we haven’t seen before, the Econtainer Bridge will provide access to the park while serving as a destination in its own right. + Yoav Messer Architects + Tel Aviv’s notorious ‘Garbage Mountain’ transforms into world’s largest recycling park Images © Yoav Messer Architects

Comments Off on Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection bans term ‘climate change’

Climate change is not so much a threat to parts of Florida, as much as it is a real and present problem ; Miami already incurs regular street flooding at high tide, and parts of the state sit six feet below sea level. But Florida is also unabashedly Florida—its politicians, including presidential hopeful Jeb Bush frequently deny that climate change even exists. And now Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection —yes, the very agency that deals with the consequences of climate change—has banned employees from using the terms ‘climate change’ and ‘global warming.’ Read the rest of Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection bans term ‘climate change’ Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Climate Change , deniers , DEP , department of Environmental Protection , environmental law , florida , global warming , jeb bush , Miami , Policy , rick scott , science , sea level rise , wetlands
