Spiral Staircase 2.0

Tired of error-prone and badly translated instruction sheets or plans, Arke stairs is shipping an instruction dvd with movies on how to setup their products. In the video, a solid craftsman proves step by step, that the thousand pieces in front of you really can become the staircase you ordered. What an opportunity to load this video-manual to the ipod and carry it along to the construction site in order to directly conduct the advised steps! Even identifying the single elements is a snap, thanks to the carefully shot and labeled elements-sequences for every working stage.

Fleeting Architecture and Hideout

Featuring the etoy.TANK-PLANT at MFO park and the MISSION ETERNITY SARCOPHAGUS in San Jose.

From the publisher's website:
Spacecraft presents projects that meet the changing spatial needs of our modern lifestyles and that are simultaneously expanding our current understanding of architecture. On the one hand, the book features flexible, fleeting structures that only exist for a limited time. On the other hand, Spacecraft focuses on spaces that are used temporarily. Whether vacation homes, urban hideouts, art projects, pavilions or studios, all of the included work is distinguished by a playful, unconventional use of space.

Obviously a must have.

Relocation of the etoy tank system successful.


the future of container vessels

The Economist has an article regarding the future of container vessels.

The currently largest ship, the Emma Maersk, has a capacity of 11000 TEUs (20 foot containers). Future container vessels are planned for up to 18000 TEUs.

Such capacity however implies trouble for the future, since some of the most important canals and shipping routes, let alone ports are not capable to cater to such monsters.

The article is an interesting read and can be found here
