How to Win Friends and Influence Engineers Part Three - Sky Hook Anyone?

Cities can be polluted, over crowded, crazy places to live - but now Architects and Designers are proposing that we live in towers suspended from Asteroids or聽even聽move to a magnetically levitated island complete with parks and trees.Cities used...

Natal/RN, 21 de abril de 2018Aos meus netosLiberdade ainda que tardia脡 贸bvio que voc锚s sabem que o dia de hoje, 21 de abril, 茅 dedicado a Tiradentes e, claro, como estudaram nos livros de Hist贸ria do Brasil, sabem que Joaquim Jos茅 da Silva...

Isso mesmo, amigo CityVP 馃悵 Manjit, mas aqui, abaixo do equador, a hist贸ria se repete continuamente, sempre como farsa. O canto 脿 liberdade 茅 sempre mais dolorido. Contundo, confio que eles, netos, ter茫o um Brasil livre de tantas injusti莽as sociais.

I also place hope of Freedom in the time of my grand-children. They will have the ability to see history at their fingertips in a way that most people have not learned to see in our time. History keeps repeating itself but at some point we will have a generation who will connect change with meaningful freedom. Also will check out 2017 Movie Joaquim https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpTr4Wzh0Z8 - I am sure it will come with English subtitles. GOOGLE TRANSLATION : Eu tamb茅m coloco a esperan莽a da Liberdade no tempo dos meus netos. Eles ter茫o a capacidade de ver a hist贸ria na ponta dos dedos de uma maneira que a maioria das pessoas n茫o aprendeu a ver em nosso tempo. A hist贸ria continua se repetindo, mas em algum momento teremos uma gera莽茫o que conectar谩 a mudan莽a com uma liberdade significativa. Tamb茅m ir谩 verificar 2017 Movie Joaquim https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpTr4Wzh0Z8 - Tenho certeza que vir谩 com legendas em ingl锚s.

Proma 馃悵 Nautiyal - I've got loads of articles cached on the bluedesigns.org website that your brother might like and there are tons of excellent architecture and green building sites - favourites of mine include Inhabitat, Proud Green Building, Arch Daily, Dezeen and Architectural Digest. If your brother ever wants to chat, we can set up a skype call or he can email/pm me. I have two great loves in architecture, heritage buildings (and their preservation) and clean modern design. Much as I would love to live on a big plot of land and build a house (or even houses) on it that I have designed, the other half of me would love to live in a heritage home, we have some stunning houses here in Joburg - particularly in areas like Melville, Auckland Park, Greenside and Parktown West that were built in the late 1800's through to the 1930s. Their high pressed iron ceilings, thick walls and beautiful sense of scale, flow and space really can't be beat!

Lovely share, Claire L Cardwell. So glad to see your works and designs through this buzz. I had never seen anything like the Ndeble houses, they are delightful. The Cedar Creek Estate building looks beautiful. I prefer the first one, though. I really hope it is built someday, because it looks elegant. The building overlooking the Sandy Bay, too, is marvelous. The technicality you explained regarding the roof and the the slopes was new thing I learnt. I enjoy looking at architectural wonders, especially historical ones. They seem to hold so many voices, experiences, and especially the culture of the people who built it. An architect has the power to create something everlasting, which speaks volumes about the time and the conditions they lived in. My brother happens to be a budding architect, and till date he has drawn some pretty amazing designs, and happens to be the youngest in the batch to have actually contributed to a live project. I will share your beBee blog with him, I am sure, he will enjoy learning from you. As for me, I will keep my eyes open and camera ready, now. If and when I manage to visit a sight which houses such beautiful buildings, I will definitely take pics and note down info which I can jot down here, later.

Until a few minutes ago I had no idea of who Cao Yong was but for a chance share by Savvy Raj on LinkedIn and immediately the blueish-purplish hue of his painting caught my attention, only to find that form of style in countless paintings found in...

Abu Madi the famous poet said those people who are deprived of inner beauty see nothing in life beautiful. Because you are on the other side of the spectrum you see beauty and share your thoughts about it. The last thing fish know about is the water they live in. Yes, many people also the last thing they know about is appreciating the beauty surrounding them. Your buzz is a reminder for all of us to wake up.

It is the artistic soul of Cao Yong which is spraying out here and it is this which waters an appreciative soul. Our eyes are born to see the art of life itself but at some point we start seeing things, objects and stuff - we cease to be amazed by even the colour we are capable of seeing and then our eyes simply become information flows that populate our head but cease reaching our soul. Your comment itself is soul worthy because you do have the eyes to see it.
