Fiber artist Olek has created a larger-than-life tribute to presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in New York City. The piece is an unbelievable 16-by-46-foot crochet blanket, nailed to a billboard overlooking New Jersey’s Route 139 highway. Featuring the hashtag #ImWithHer, an image of Hillary’s face, and a shocking pink background, the blanket reportedly took a team of 38 helpers over four weeks to create. The entire piece consists of 794,880 individual stitches.

Comments Off on Billboard Produces Drinkable Water From Desert Air in Peru

Peruvian researchers have collaborated with an ad agency to create an unusual billboard that generates drinking water from thin air . While the billboard fulfills its traditional role as an advertising tool—in this case for courses at Lima’s University of Engineering and Technology (UTEC)—it harvests moisture directly from the air, which is then processed through a filtration system . Capable of producing 25 gallons (96 liters) of water a day during summer, the billboard has produced 9450 liters of clean drinking water for a nearby community in the three months since it was first installed.

Chuanbing Tang from the University of South Carolina is looking to the noble conifer to provide the key to biodegradable, renewable plastics. His research group has been altering the natural resins of firs, pines, and other evergreens through polymerization to create compounds that are more sustainable than fossil fuel-derived plastics.

Comments Off on British Cooperative Launches World’s Largest Community-Owned Solar Park

The Westmill Solar Cooperative announced Nov. 1 the launch of the world’s largest community-owned solar project in the south of England near Oxford. The 5 MW 30-acre Westmill solar park consists of 20,260 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and is designed to generate 4.8 GWhr per year, which the cooperative says is equivalent to a year’s electricity consumption for 1,500 homes and enough to prevent 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The park was built by an initial group of private investors with the intention of selling it to a community-owned cooperative.

Comments Off on EFGH designs a green recreational landscape for Rosario

Ritu Mathur: The Billboard Park Designed by EFGH Architectural Design Studio So far the city of Rosario, the industrial hub of Argentina, has been famous for its neoclassical architecture that has been retained over hundreds of years through its public and private buildings and tourists have thronged the city to have a look at the beautiful archaic buildings preserved through conscious efforts by its residents. But very soon, Rosario could also be known for its contemporary designed honeycomb structured park at the banks of Paraná River. Picture Gallery The Billboard Park Billboard Park by EFGH Architectural Design Studio The recreational park has been designed in such a way that it provides optimal spaces of public spaces. It also gives an opportunity to the visitors to view interactive designs and enjoy the breathtaking beautiful views of the Paraná River. The park has been named as Billboard park because of its unique structure which uses both the horizontal and vertical spaces. The vertical structure of the park has striking similarities with the bee hive and the visitors can stand on the small units of this billboard like structure and can have an eagle’s eye view of the river. The park is set in a triangular shaped plot of land and makes best use of the available space. The green side of the park faces the river and makes it an incredible experience to look at the river. The plants in the holes are grown in light weight soil free medium to avoid any kind of excess burden on the structure of the vertical park. There are a lot of niches in this structure from where the city of Rosario can be seen in a new light. The credit for designing this unconventional park goes to a New York based firm, EFGH Architectural Design Studio. The firm is known for creating unconventional and yet multipurpose buildings. The park is an example of using unconventional strategic approach in designing public spaces. Via: Evolo
