My morning photo walk was off to a slow start today. I’m not sure why, but I’ve had a few recent photos which really pleased me and I think I was feeling a bit too picky and cautious about who to approach. I’ve never been one to select only the spectacular characters but like the “slice of life” approach, portraying a wide variety of people and maybe my recent good fortune upset that approach a bit. Mind you, I did have a couple of nice encounters but neither generated a project request (and maybe that’s a good development in its own way).

 

I was near the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in Toronto where I have had a few nice encounters with interesting, creative students and decided to head that way for a look-see. On my way I noticed this streetcar turn-around which goes through the ground floor of a building. I liked the light reflecting off the windows, the curve, and the soft light near the sidewalk. If only a suitable person were to appear, but what would “suitable” be? I was turned down by an edgy-looking fellow with a beard who was just finishing his coffee beak and had to get back to his office. He was polite and wished me well with the project.

 

All of a sudden this striking young woman exited the OCAD door and I approached her without hesitation. Her response was an equally spontaneous “Yes. I’d be glad to help you out.” Meet Iman, a 20 year old third year student at the College in the Environmental Architecture program. I told her of the streetcar turn-around which was now nearly a block away and asked if she had enough time to walk there with me and she said “Sure. I know where you mean and I’m going that direction anyway.” My day had suddenly turned lucky. I used the short walk to give her the details of the project and she knew Flickr and was fine with it.

 

I demonstrated my portrait idea by standing where I wanted her to be and invited her to put down her cup of coffee and backpack, apologizing that the ground was kind of dirty. She didn’t seem to mind. I switched to spot metering and got to it. The first few photos showed her warm smile and I then invited a neutral expression and switched to manual focus to gain more experience with manual. We were suddenly joined by a somewhat beefy-looking female security guard who informed us that we were near an active streetcar track. She seemed to be concerned about our safety but I think she was also letting us know it was private property. I thanked her for her concern and Iman and I told her we were almost done (and there was no hint of a streetcar anywhere). This was the one last photo we made.

 

Iman was interested in my camera because she was impressed by the quality of the images on the screen. She is thinking of buying a Nikon camera because she would like to take a photography course in her final year at the College. We talked for a few minutes about cameras.

 

Iman’s parents are from Somalia but she was born and raised in Canada. I asked if she’d ever visited Somalia and she said she hadn’t. I told her my impression was that it’s not a very safe place to visit these days and perhaps it would be better to not visit until the situation was more stable and safe. I’m not positive about this but I believe it’s true.

 

Iman was one more example of why I shouldn’t be afraid to approach Muslim women for my project. Some may be uncomfortable with the concept but Iman couldn’t have been sweeter or more willing to help out. Thank you Iman for participating in 100 Strangers. You are now Stranger #504 in Round 6 of my project.

While walking in Olaiyah Street, I was surprised that the Environmental Architecture (Sustainable Architecture) takes place in Riyadh! So, I couldn't stand watching without taking shots :D

 

Location: Olaiyah Street, Olaiya Town, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

 

Function: It's used as a low energy architecture to decrease the solar radiation in hot cities like Riyadh in which the average temperature at day is 43°C - 45°C. so the shades and shadows are valuable there. I just wanted to know if the curtain wall and shading device could be cheaper than the other heat insulation materials?? I wish but I don't think so!

Just it's disadvantages that at winter solar radiation is needed since the winter there is very cold and very short, so it needs some balance.

Location: Staffordshire

Gross Area: 50 to 99 square metres [sqm]

 

This unit is one of many new concept extensions we are involved in designing. It uses sheep’s wool insulation and features a green roof. Both of these aspects offer a sustainable, environmentally friendly approach to architecture.

 

There is a new incentive for clients to think and be environmental responsible. The Government's renewable energy policy aims to put the UK on a path to cut its carbon dioxide emissions by 2020. Thankfully significant carbon dioxide savings can be gained by displacing fossil fuels.

 

To date it is hard to find unobtrusive sustainable energy systems to be used in conservation areas and on listed buildings. The Ground Source Heat Pump changes that. It is a renewable energy source, acting as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel. This will provide a 100% solution to heating and hot water. As heat pumps do not require a flue there are no emissions of any sort.

 

The environmental benefits are the substantial reduction of carbon emissions. When combined with Juice by Npower, this can attains a carbon neutral solution.

Trani, Apulia (Italy)

 

The Castle of Trani is one of the most important and, despite the suffered mutations, one of the best legible among the castels erected from the emperor Federico II of Swabia to guardianship of his favorite Kingdom of Sicily, inherited by his mother, the princess Norman Constanza of Altavilla.

 

The foundation of the castel, on a rocky more low in comparison to the firm earth and probably isolated since the origin, it involved the destruction of a modest outpost of look-out, a small tower of referable watch to the centuries X - XI, recovered under the actual entry.

 

Important datum on the coast pugliese of the castels system of Federico II, in the XIII century the most modern of Europe, rises not too far from the famous cathedral, strategically situated to the center of a roadstead, whose low backdrops would always be revealed a good natural defense, both from the fury of the waves and from possible attacks on the northern front.

 

On model of the cruciform castles of Earth Saint, it had simple and functional quadrangular plant, strengthened to the vertexes from four square towers of peer height.

 

The castel, with the sequence of the dynasties, first to the Angioinis, then to the Aragonese ones, it was always, up to our days, of government ownership, except a brief period (1385-1419), when it was assigned to the captain Alberico da Barbiano, thanks to the services made to Charles III of Durazzo in struggle for the succession with Luigi D'Angiò.

 

Preserving unchanged the strategic value of the position, in the XVI century, with the advent of the fire weapons, the castle was adjusted to the new defensive techniques, answering to the diffused demand of re-fortification of the Mediterranean coasts, threatened by the Turkish advance. The operation involved the increase of the southern front, less favorite from the nature and overlooking the open country and the realization of two bastions to the opposite edges of southwest (to point of lance) and northeast (to square plant), assuring the fire hedgetop coverage of the whole perimeter of the fortitude.

 

The Castle uninterruptedly covered its role of military garrison, to exception of the years 1586-1677, when it was center of the Sacred Regal Hearing of the province of Barri, until, in the XIX century, was turned to provincial central jail, destination stopped only in 1974.

 

Restored by the Superintendence for the Environmental, Architectural, Artistic and Historical heritage of Puglia, from 1979, it has been open to the public June 5 th 1998.

To riff off of Dave Gray's smart thingking, one of my favorite parts of the book is the discussion of multiscale user experience design.

 

Kuniavsky goes beyond Mark Weiser's model of tabs, pads, and boards to embrace a wider range of scales: covert, mobile, personal, environmental, architectural, and urban. The idea is to get us thinking about which devices and interfaces work best at which scales and how they can work together.

 

Of course, it's not easy to imagine multiscale interactions in the abstract. That's why I love the Business Origami approach. By combining tangible artifacts and sketching, it makes brainstorming more accessible and fun.

 

What I'd like to see #lazyweb is a Ubicomp Origami Kit with icons for multiscale and multisensory devices. Timo's Everyware Icons for sensor fields and objects with invisible qualities might be a good place to start. How else can we make it easier (and more fun) to sketch the future?

Strange Connections

 

UX Storytellers is a free ebook worth checking out.

 

Video (plus interview) from my Ubiquitous IA talk at IDEA 2010.

Look as if an architect had a hand in it, and hence that the owners (unlike the great majority of north Queenslanders) had an appreciation of Modernism and contemporary directions in house design. It has the lightweight, steel-framed, Glenn Murcutt 'touch-the-earth-lightly' look. If I built on my own plot on the Tableland, I would have something similar, though simpler and sleeker.

 

Note the solar water heating and photovoltaic cells - the owners are also environmentally conscious. I doubt they are local farmers!

Dual-Flush Toilet

 

Compared with standard toilets, a dual-flush toilet conserves water by having two types of flush buttons: .9gpf (gallons per flush) and 1.6 gpf for different usage. Statistics show that in the US, 5.8 billion gallons of water are use each day to flush toilets!

Prospect 1 - Katharina Grosse Site

5418 Dauphine Street

New Orleans, Louisiana

 

KATHARINA GROSSE (b. 1961, Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany) lives and works in Düsseldorf and Berlin.

 

Katharina Grosse’s site-specific abstract paintings organically expand, covering a range of surfaces, including aluminum, canvas, paper, and existing architectural elements. Grosse first started to attract attention in the mid-1990s with her unusual color-field paintings. Each Grosse mural is unique, responding to the particular environmental, architectural and social circumstance and constitute, more than anything, color events. The artist explores consistency, transparency, and contrast of paint and color while experimenting with technique and painting gestures in both her site-specific works and her works on canvas.

 

Grosse’s installations have been commissioned by institutions throughout the world including the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris; Magasin 3, Stockholm; Konsthall, Stockholm; and the Artsonje Museum Kyongju, Korea, among others. Recent projects have been at Museu Serralves, Portugal, and the Renaissance Society, Chicago.
