Click here to view the embedded video. In an effort to preserve the ancient art of beekeeping and safely bring it to a new, urban audience, industrial designer Francesco Faccin has created the Honey Factory . The metal and wood parallelogram structure features a prominent chimney that forms a focal point for the piece of micro architecture, while protecting the bees from harm. A viewing window towards the base of the structure, meanwhile, provides a close-up view of the hives and beekeeping in action for budding apiarists of all ages.

Comments Off on Protesters stage “Paddle In Seattle” against Shell Oil Rig

Last Thursday, Shell brought its enormous Polar Pioneer drilling rig into Seattle. On Saturday, about 500 kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing and even solar-powered party rigging protesters surrounded the rig , shouting “Shell No!” or #sHellno. Shell Oil plans to use Seattle as its staging area for drilling operations off the coast of Alaska this summer. Hopefully, Shell can avoid spilling massive amounts of the oil into the Chukchi Sea, but if its drilling attempts of 2012 are any indication, according to Grist.org, we can likely expect a “big, fat mess.” Read the rest of Protesters stage “Paddle In Seattle” against Shell Oil Rig Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: greenpeace seattle , greenpeace usa , seattle kayakers , seattle port , seattle protesters , seattle protesters on kayaks and paddleboards , shell drilling rig seattle , shell oil , shell oil in seattle

Comments Off on Anti-Expo protests in Milan erupt in violence, clashes with riot police

The May 1 opening of the Milan Expo 2015 architectural show has been marred by violent clashes between a group of protesters and Italian riot police. Reuters reports that “thick clouds of smoke from burning cars filled parts of central Milan” as masked individuals threw rocks and petrol bombs, and law enforcement retaliated with teargas. The wider, student-organized No Expo protests—which have otherwise been nonviolent—are speaking out against the immense cost of the temporary Expo at a time when Italy is facing economic hardship.
