Trees cocooned in spiders webs


Trees cocooned in spiders webs, an unexpected side effect of the flooding in Sindh, Pakistan

An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs. People in this part of Sindh have never seen this phenonemon before - but they also report that there are now less mosquitos than they would expect, given the amoungt of stagnant, standing water that is around.

It is thought that the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders web thus reducing the risk of malaria, which would be one blessing for the people of Sindh, facing so many other hardships after the floods.

Abandoned Skyscraper - Bangkok


Bangkok. Property boom. Then Asian Financial Crisis ’97. No more money. Construction halted from one day to the other, never to be picked up again. It’s still there, completely abandoned.

The Death of Rendering

Quite a few technologies have evolved far enough to actually challenge rendering. Most are just coming of age now in 2011. No more will you wait for a test render. These are actually good enough to use as a final presentation.

The contenders:

Cryengine 3



In this video you can clearly see direct Sketchup integration. Other CAD software is sure to be included. The best part? It is free for non-commercial purposes. Release: July 2011
Other two examples of Cryengine 3:

Frostibte 2



The engine that powers Battlefield 3 is being prepared for use in design and architecture too.

Digital Fabricated Staircase

the sculptured staircase, designed by alex haw's london-based atmos studio for a residential project,
recreates the structural flow of the living spaces, incorporating the pattern of the house's skirting board into its form.
in accordance with the greater layout of the space, which seeks to visually connect rooms and other living spaces,
the risers of the staircase extend into the bathroom space below, stretching along the wall and around existing furniture,
to integrate fully into the space.

the stair was digitally fabricated, using sheets of MDF and oak that were digitally cut directly from the architecture team's

design plans into the individual pieces of the structure. each component was engineered to slot together,
creating a unified form once assembled.

Vreau sa vad si la noi lucruri de genul asta. Sa nu va aud ca nu se poate in Romania :P
Daca nu stiti unde sa le taiati va spun eu.
