Adaptive Architecture of “Sensory digital infrastructure” as UNSense describes it, will use data to adapt and adjust our living environment to our changing needs. A “technology that adapts to its users.” Citysense Social & Creative Innovation Health, safety, liveability and mobility are complex challenges that require innovative, social and adaptive solutions. That’s why we believe
The International Community have designated parts of our seas, oceans, estuaries and large lakes as “Marine Protected Areas.” The concept is to promote conservation in these areas to protect these important resources and can include wildlife refuges or research facilities. The Marine Protected Areas (MPA) are protected and legislated by regional authorities around the world.
This is incredible! I was certainly naieve to the fact that the “lake” in Central Park, New York City, was polluted given all the media attention it receives and all of the “super property” that is adjacent. This architectural solution that combines renewable energy through a wind turbine to filter the water and reduce it’s
Sustainable innovation – instead of trying to refine existing approaches and technologies to sourcing water, the WaterSeer organization changed the focus to accessing the moisture in our atmosphere and then condensing it below ground. WaterSeer – a simple device that provides clean fresh water right where people live. Overseer journal provides the latest thinking on their
The Arctic Circle conjures up images of extreme weather conditions, but one family has managed to create their own cozy oasis in the far reaches of Norway. The Hjertefølger family has been living on Norway’s Sandhornøya island, where they started their journey into sustainable living, since 2013. Their three-story cob home—built from sand, water, clay, and other
University researchers in the UK are exploring cellulose and xylan on a molecular level that could lead to innovations in strengthening wood materials. Molecules 10,000 times narrower than the width of a human hair could hold the key to making possible wooden skyscrapers and more energy-efficient paper production, according to research published today in the
