Comments Off on 10 Landscape Design Projects That Turn Damaged and Neglected Spaces Into Healthy, Beautiful Environments

The High Line Park in NYC. Photo by Jill Fehrenbacher for Inhabitat Landscape architects frequently work to transform areas that contain industrial and toxic waste, infrastructure no longer in use, or land affected by war , natural disaster or disuse. These neglected places, while often having a negative impact on the environment and surrounding community, are simultaneously part of our cultural heritage. To highlight the significance of these spaces, and the potential that they hold to become something more than a blight, we’ve gathered up a series of projects that illuminate how designers use unlikely opportunities to transform landscapes into spectacular spaces—all while preserving their historic and cultural meaning. These 10 case studies showcase the creative approaches global city governments, preservationists, developers and the design community have taken to transform marginalized places into healthy and meaningful environments for everyone to enjoy.

Comments Off on 100% Chemical-Free Sprayer Kills the Most Common Pathogens Using Only Water

This amazing Eco3Spray handheld sprayer from Franke turns ordinary tap water into ozone, enabling it to kill common nasties like E. coli, salmonella, staph aureus, and pneumonia without using any chemicals. The unit works by transforming water into ozone through a  diamond electrolysis cell , technology that was selected from 300 entries as one of the Top Twenty Most Viable Water Technologies at the  2013 Global Water Summit . As strong as chlorine in its cleaning power without the fumes, the ozone is completely safe – even for use on fruits and vegetables.
