Comments Off on CU-Boulder Study Finds ‘Unprecedented’ Warming in Eastern Canadian Arctic

A new University of Colorado Boulder study reveals a level of warming in the Eastern Canadian Arctic that likely hasn’t been seen since the end of the last interglacial period 120,000 years ago. Radioactive carbon dates from 145 dead moss clumps emerging from four different receding Baffin Island ice caps show the mosses had not been exposed to the elements in at least 44,000 years.

Comments Off on Ancient Bees Were Wiped Out with the Dinosaurs

Researchers recently discovered that today’s bee populations are not the first to succumb to environmental changes. Their studies reveal that along with dinosaurs , a species of carpenter bees was completely wiped out 65 million years ago. By studying this historic extinction, the researchers hope to find meaningful ways to prevent the current decline that threatens several bee species throughout the globe.

Beautifully Renovated Hispasat Office is Wrapped in a Space-Age Solar Facade

Comments Off on Beautifully Renovated Hispasat Office is Wrapped in a Space-Age Solar Facade

Rather than building a brand new office, Spanish communication satellite company Hispasat chose to renovate their existing headquarters with a stunning perforated facade that actually improves the performance of the existing building. The original circular office building was constructed in the 1970s, and over the last few decades the structure fell out of date while also suffering from excess solar heat gain and glare. To solve the ongoing problems, Herreros Arquitectos proposed adding a new exterior skin that would control solar radiation and illumination while giving the building a space-age aesthetic.
