Researchers at the Technical University of Dresden have been working with German architecture firm Henn to create the first concrete building to be reinforced with carbon fibres instead of steel. Read more
Ennead Architects has completed work on a stunning new astronomy museum in Shanghai, China, that also happens to be the world's largest. The building's curving design – it contains no straight lines or right angles according to the firm – is inspired by the cosmos and parts of it function a little like an oversized sundial, marking the passage of time.Continue ReadingCategory: Architecture, Lifes
The world produces more than 1.8 billion tons of steel a year, releasing nearly twice that weight in carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Indeed, steel production accounts for somewhere between 7-8 percent of global anthropogenic carbon emissions, so this industry is a key target in the race to zero by 2050.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Energy, Steel, Manufacturing Technologies, H
In a breakthrough that could open up exciting new possibilities in computing and electronics, scientists in the US have developed a two-dimensional magnetic material that is the thinnest in the world. The magnet is just a single atom thick and, unlike similar materials developed previously, is able to function at room temperature, which, among other applications, could allow data to be stored at
the design showcases a texture similar to that of an actual orange peel, while some say that it even smells like orange cookies. The post meet ‘ohmie’: world’s first fully circular 3D printed lamp made from orange peels appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Not content with boasting the world's tallest building, the world's largest mall and a host of other forward-thinking ventures that include flying taxis and firefighters with jetpacks, Dubai has now opened the deepest swimming pool in the world. Deep Dive Dubai takes underwater explorers to depths of 60 m (196 ft), where they can enjoy the make-believe relics of an abandoned sunken city.Continue
MX3D has finally realized its ambitious plan to install what's described as the world's first 3D-printed steel bridge over a canal in Amsterdam. The Queen of the Netherlands has officially opened the bridge to the public and, as well as an eye-catching design, it features hidden sensors that are collecting data on its structural integrity, crowd behavior, and more.Continue ReadingCategory: 3D Pri
after several years of work, the futuristic bridge has now opened to the public in amsterdam's red light district. The post world’s first 3D printed steel bridge installed over one of amsterdam’s oldest canals appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Western Australia could soon be home to the world's biggest green hydrogen project. The Western Green Energy hub (WGEH) wants to deploy 50 GW of solar and wind generation to produce up to 3.5 million tons of green hydrogen or 20 million tons of ammonia a year.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Solar-to-Hydrogen, Hydrogen, Hydrogen Economy, Energy
Through pioneering projects in Mexico, China, Texas and elsewhere, we're starting to see how 3D printing can make building construction a whole lot more cost effective. An affordable housing venture in Africa named 14Trees has now leveraged the technology to produce the world's first 3D-printed school in Malawi, where students started taking their first lessons late last month.Continue ReadingCat is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
