A Giganitic Trigone Designed for New Orleans

NOAH

NOAH
Home  |  Building
NOAH (New Orleans Arcology Habitat) or Arco(short for arcology), this massive trigone building that contains all the elements of a city within one structure. NOAH is a 1200-foot-tall arco designed especially for New Orleans. NOAH proposes to be a habitat for 40,000 residents who can benefit from the planned residential units, school system, commercial, retail, hotels, casinos, parking, and public works facilities. And features this structure will use an array of green systems, including solar panels, water turbines, wind turbines, fresh water recovery, and a passive solar glazing system.
Design Challenge:
1. The first challenge is to overcome both the physical and psychological damages of recurring severe weather patterns. Though re-population has begun, the need to provide a stabilized and safe environment is paramount to a long term recovery and economic well being of New Orleans.
2. The second challenge is that New Orleans has too much water. The city has been built at and below sea levels which creates consistently high water table and makes it prone to flooding and storm surges.
3. The third challenge is that New Orleans is built on soil condition which consists of thousands of feet of soft soil, silt and clay. These conditions make building large scale concentrated structures difficult.
Believing that NOAH is a viable plan, our solution to overcome these challenges is to take advantage of these seemingly conflicting issues with the introduction of a floating urban platform.

Sleep at your 'dog house'! Called Hibernate, by Aimee Pegram.
"Sometimes we all just want to get away and escape from what's going on around us whether it's a personal place or just hiding behind a wall. Hibernate offers you your own cocoon to do this in a comfortable environment, designer Aimee Pegram explains. Designed by Aimee Pegram.
"My process was casting rope and resin around a 5 ft inflatable balloon, weaving fluently to form the cocoon like nest. Then when the rope has set, simply burst the balloon to create the form
With inspiration from the Blue Peter Balloon string demonstration some of us may have watched as children, I wanted to expand on the unique process to create an environment that is aesthetically pleasing, unique and comfortable.
Once encased in this environment the person has a sense of escape whilst still seeing what is going on around them." Availale in various sizes and colors, and can be made to order for GBP 950, contact her mail: aimeepegram#hotmail.com.

Yella Grapnel

Yella Grapnel
Home  |  Outdoor
The Yella Grapnel($27) is an essential tool for tree climbers or wall climbers. It¡¯s small enough to carry in a pocket or gear bag on every climb(3 ½ inches long grapnel).
"It takes inspiration from UK climber Michael Spraggon¡®s idea to recurve the tines for more reliable line-snagging performance. Instead of the simple upward bend of the original tines, the new tines coil around and inward, still leaving plenty of space between tine and shank for the line to enter the coil.
At our direction, our fabricator gave us a variety of new prototypes based on this concept. We tested them snagging both throwline and rope. We threw them both right-handed and left-handed. In a trial of 40 well-aimed tosses (not including air tosses), the winner snagged the line 36 times ¨C an impressive 90% success rate! "
