Comments Off on Help make a flat-pack building to support migrant children in Calais

The port city of Calais has become home to a number of refugee camps that have become known as “the Jungle.” In attempt to help the children who live in “the Jungle,” a group of architecture students, known as Tak Tak Tak, launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the Calais Kids Space , a safe and comfortable flat-pack structure for children. The flat-pack timber frame would be made with landfill-bound materials wherever possible and prefabricated offsite. The designers say the space should be big enough to hold up to 70 people and be flexible in its day-to-day use. To help make Calais Kids Space a reality, head over to Tak Tak Tak’s crowdfunding page . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBy-zLnPFko + Calais Kids Space The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Momentum brings a psychedelic show of light and color to Vivid Sydney

A dynamic show of light and color has touched down in the land Down Under. As part of Vivid Sydney , the city’s annual light, music, and ideas festival, Australian artists Stephanie Shehata and Erin Slaviero created Momentum , a collection of three vertical freestanding portals that explore the relationship between light, material, form and speed. Viewers can interact with each portal by spinning a wheel that transforms the installation into a moving kaleidoscope of color and reflection. The installation is on view from 6PM onwards every day in Walsh Bay until the end of Vivid Sydney on Saturday, June 18. https://vimeo.com/168824671 + Momentum The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Gabion walls and recycled steel panels for an outstanding green home in Texas

Comments Off on Gabion walls and recycled steel panels for an outstanding green home in Texas

The house comprises a series of interconnected modules stretching from the front porch to the garage. Two outdoor patios demarcate different functions, with the entry patio acting as a covered porch. The second one separates the main living area, including the kitchen and dining room, from the study, children’s room and utility spaces. It can also be used for outdoor grilling and connects the powder room with the swimming pool . Related: Casa Gavion Uses a Breathing Gabion Wall To Keep Cool in Baja, Mexico The roof of the elongated volume is clad in recycled corrugated steel panels with a weathered finish. Together with a visually dominant gabion wall, which shelters the pool area from outside views, it acts as a modern interpretation of some of the iconic elements of the Texas vernacular , and a beautiful example of critical regionalism. + Buchanan Architecture Via Archdaily Photos by James F.

Comments Off on Artist sculpts lifelike grizzly bear from recycled cardboard

Artist Claudio Barake has been sculpting with recycled materials for many years. Using only discarded paper, wood, and cardboard, the artist crushes these found materials into a juice used as BioFuel and the remaining fibers are used to produce a flourless papier-mâché pulp. This solid cardboard Grizzly Bear measures 42cm in height and stands regally on a Peroba reclaimed wood base. The color, natural cardboard, is perfectly fitting for a Grizzly. + BARAKE PAPIER MACHÊ The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Comments Off on The fhlo bottle keeps you hydrated and helps get water to those in need

The fhlo bottle is a reusable water bottle designed to keep you hydrated and make an impact. Every purchase of a fhlo bottle  helps keep well water flowing for those in need through The Adventure Product, which creates jobs and restores wells in developing nations. The design is a modern take on the fuel canisters used to transport water back and forth from the wells in developing nations. The opening clasp is a cam style latch and the transparent front allows you to keep tabs on your liquid levels. It features a 1/3 volume indicator reminding you when its time to fill up and representing the broken wells you’re helping restore. The bottle is designed to be unique so it can act as an iconic symbol that can get the conversation started about getting water to those who need it. + Support fhlo on Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

KÓSMOS necklaces are made to last a lifetime using industrial pipe waste

Comments Off on KÓSMOS necklaces are made to last a lifetime using industrial pipe waste

A small Malmö-based design studio by the Norwegian duo Kristin Løberg and Martina Zbinden has developed a new jewelry brand entitled KÓSMOS with elegant necklaces made out of  industrial waste from metal pipes. The polished rings in copper, brass and aluminum combines a beautiful symphony of various material and size combinations. The studio’s vision is to build a brand with substance and honesty, with a touch of experimental fun. The jewelry packaging also hides a clever surprise: a business card made out of sandpaper. This reflects the core design philosophy of the brand: products should stand the test of time and age gracefully.  KÓSMOS does that by naturally darkening over time due to oxidation, but the sandpaper will enable those who don´t desire this effect to brush it off using sandpaper. The designers behind KÓSMOS think its important that designers play the role as humble educators, and give people cues to care for their products instead of just buying something new. + KOSMOS  The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
