Revisión de una obra representativa de la integración de las artes en el Patrimonio Industrial,  el mural de la central del río Eume en A Coruña de José María de Labra, por  Antonio S. Río Vázquez y Silvia Blanco Agüeira.

La central hidroeléctrica del Eume, actualmente propiedad de ENDESA, se sitúa en el límite de los ayuntamientos de A Capela y Monfero, en la provincia de A Coruña. Su construcción se debió al plan de explotación de los principales ríos gallegos ideado por Fuerzas Eléctricas del Noroeste a mediados de los años cincuenta. El trabajo conjunto de ingenieros, arquitectos y artistas plásticos convirtió dichas infraestructuras en la expresión perfecta del ideal de integración de las artes, asumiendo las corrientes estéticas más vanguardistas del momento.

7 Insanely Clever Hacks For Bedroom Storage

5 hours 42 min ago

Having an additional space in an apartment is a major need in metro cities as the price of bigger spaces for purchase or rent is generally quite high.

With some DIY tricks, one can create additional storage space in the bedroom. Below are 7 insanely clever hacks for bedroom storage to try:

  • Drawers Attached to the Bed

Drawers Attached to Bed

The bottom of the bed being an unused space, using the same for storage is a great idea. One can easily get good drawers fixed to it, or plan to buy a bed with readymade drawers attached to it. This storage space is extremely useful to keep blankets, clothes or other items which are used seasonally.

  • Use Glue Hooks Inside the Closet

The back wall inside the closet is another unused space. Accessing the back is quite difficult, when clothes are hanging in the front. . To use this space wisely, one can fix hooks on the wall and hang things which are not used quite frequently, for example, belts, handbags, scarves and much more.

Crowbars: Vending Machines Reward Crows for Cleaning Up Cigarette Butts

20 January, 2018 - 18:00
[ By WebUrbanist in Conceptual & Futuristic & Technology. ]

Each year, trillions of cigarette butts are thrown on the streets of cities worldwide, but what if a highly intelligent urban creature could be trained to pick them up, and even be automatically given a treat for their troubles?

Crows are adept learners, able to use tools and think outside the box. Notably, they have already been trained to use specialized ‘vending machines’ in which they receive food for depositing a coin. By extension, butts could be the new coin of the urban crow realm.

Cities have tried all kinds of things to get smokers to stop discarding butts on the ground, including ‘ballot bins’ letting them vote for favorite sports teams as well as light-up and musical garbage cans. Alas, humans are tricky to train, and not always very responsible.
