Comments Off on Worlds first circular-economy business park mimics nature to achieve sustainability

The Triango sustainable business park in Paris, designed by  RAU Architects , SeARCH , and karres + brands , embraces the idea of a  circular economy  using inspiration from nature. The idea behind the proposal is to create facilities that can behave dynamically throughout their period of use and to use materials that can be used over and over again in the future. The new campus will include over 41 acres (167,000 square meters) of modular offices , incubators , and ateliers, organized around a central park. It is marked by public spaces and inter-building connections, fostering synergy and a new way of working. Related: ICEhouse designed for continuous reuse will be 100% Cradle to Cradle certified A robust framework forms the spine of the master plan, with three characteristic zones defined by unique site qualities. The urban zone is a compact strip, where, transparent, active, ground floors and open public spaces, consisting of gardens and green atria , create a lively urban character. This space has a large production greenhouse which will provide energy-neutral food and ingredients used in the products of the companies working in the area and for small local shops and restaurants. The organic zone includes innovative outdoor areas for new ways of work and recreation, while the landmark zone forms a striking façade towards the adjacent highway. + RAU Architects + SeARCH + karres + brands

Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees every time you click

Comments Off on Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees every time you click

Ecosia is an eco-friendly alternative to Google – it works just like any other search engine, so you can still find what you are looking for, but Ecosia donates surplus advertising income to a tree planting program. All told, that’s at least 80% of its profits, all going towards making the planet a little greener, and all you have to do is do what you are already doing. A small team of Ecosia users have already contributed enough to plant 4 million trees, so imagine what we could do if everyone switched. Want to be sure all that money is going where they say it will? You can  keep tabs on Ecosia  because they publish proof every month of the work they – and you – are doing. + Ecosia

Comments Off on How the Moon Could Meet the World’s Energy Needs for the Next 10,000 Years

Mining the moon to meet our energy needs may sound like the plot from a sci-fi movie , but China is considering doing exactly that. Helium 3 is an extremely valuable isotope that could be used in clean fusion plants to generate energy – and it’s available in vast quantities on the moon. Some scientists say that the moon is so rich in Helium 3 that it could solve the world’s energy problems for at least 10,000 years.

In a location as picturesque as Vals, Switzerland , it’s difficult to imagine any new construction that wouldn’t impose on the beautiful landscape. So, when the rare opportunity was granted to construct a new dwelling just a stone’s throw away from the famed Vals thermal baths , it was of paramount importance to not disturb the tranquil site. Designed by the architects of SeArch and Christian Müller , this underground house exemplifies the notion that thoughtfully constructed buildings can live in harmony with their surrounding environs.
