Comments Off on Inhabitat’s top design stories of 2014 – vote for your favorite!

Green design will save the world, and this year designers went all out with an incredible range of innovations. Sada brought us an incredible hubless folding bike  while Klemmens Torggler introduced the world to an origami-like folding door  and the Egloo room heater sparked a lively debate. When it came to re-designing the way we live, we saw a tiny trailer home with all the luxuries, woven refugee tents that get their power from the sun and a clever little microbus for the eco-traveller.  Tell us which design you think tops them all.

Inhabitat’s top 6 art stories of 2014

Comments Off on Inhabitat’s top 6 art stories of 2014

People have been creating art to inspire and communicate ideas to one another since we first put handprints on cave walls, and here at Inhabitat, we’ve been fortunate enough to discover some of the most breathtaking art pieces from around the world. Over the past year, we’ve seen a  hand-knit hammock stretched across a Utah chasm, and an ocean of poppies spilling out from the Tower of London. Eerie underwater sculptures have given us a chilling view of the future after climate change, and an anatomical Barbie offered a glimpse into the impossible internal workings of that iconic doll, while photo galleries showcased a child’s African animal companions , as well as the oldest living organisms on the planet. Which story did you like best? Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll.

Comments Off on Wind Power Generated 126% of Scotland’s Household Energy Needs Last Month

According to new statistics released by the World Wildlife Fund Scotland , Scottish renewable energy had a “bumper month” in October, 2014, with wind power alone generating an estimated 982,842 MWh of electricity. This is enough clean energy to power around 3,045,000 homes, and equates to 126 percent of the electricity needs of Scottish households. Solar power and hot water generation also performed well, despite the country’s reputation for grey and misty weather.
