Sustainability Library Designed by London College of Communication Students

archiWEB 3.0 - October 9, 2014 - 21:00

A group of year one BA (Hons) Spatial Design students at the London College of Communication were given a live project to promote sustainable design within LCC. Joy Williams and Ashleigh Nutton collaborated to design a sustainability library that could be used for special talks, as well as a mobile book unit that could be transported to other locations. The unit that will be used as a lecture space and permanent sustainability library was brightened up with eco-paints such as Ecos Organic and Little Greene, while the floor tiles were donated by Interface; a sustainable flooring company. Seating has been created by folding used clothing and stacking them into small benches. Made primarily from donated. up cycled materials, the mobile bookstand was built from reclaimed wooden pallets and MDF from a local scrap yard, and the wheels came from an old shopping trolley. Over the 2014-2015 school year, both the space and the mobile unit will be used for a series of guest expert talks on sustainability and books organized by Barbara Salvadori.

6 Recipes for a Vegan French Canadian Thanksgiving Menu

archiWEB 3.0 - October 9, 2014 - 20:30

The harvest comes in early here in Canada; a full month before our neighbors to the south, in fact! As such, our Thanksgiving feast falls on the second weekend in October, rather than mid November, and you can bet that the season’s bounty is celebrated with great delight all across the country. Every region has its signature dishes for this particular holiday, and rural Québec is no exception. Although traditional fare is quite meat-heavy (turkey, ham, pork-filled pies and such), there are some gorgeous options for those who prefer a plant-based diet. Here are a few classic Québecois Thanksgiving dishes that we’ve updated for vegan palates.

Fracking Company Paints Drill Bits Pink to Fight Breast Cancer

archiWEB 3.0 - October 9, 2014 - 18:44

Accusations of “pinkwashing” have recently been leveled at a partnership between breast cancer organization Susan G. Komen and “oilfield services” company Baker Hughes. To help raise awareness of breast cancer amongst its predominantly male workforce, Baker Hughes has painted 1,000 drill bits pink and is distributing them to oil and gas fields worldwide. Due to widespread concern and ongoing research into possible connections between the fracking industry and cancer, many are asking why on Earth Komen has entered into this partnership.

Commentary: Does Helsinki Need Two Competitions?

archiWEB 3.0 - October 9, 2014 - 18:01
While the Guggenheim Foundation has launched a controversial architectural competition for a museum on a waterfront site in Helsinki, a group of architects has mounted a counter-competition called The Next Helsinki. “We hope to find something better for this important site than the anachronism of another containment vessel for art,” says architect, critic, and educator Michael Sorkin.
