ROCK-SETTE in Istanbul, Turkey by Dinkoff Architects & Engineers Inc.

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Article source: Dinkoff Architects & Engineers Inc.

DISASTER PREVENTION AND EDUCATION CENTER

The rich culture of Turkey includes a monument to human achievement, invention, and practicality – a site called Cappadocia.  More than two thousand years ago, the people of the region sought a strong, permanent and imposing shelter.   Inspired by the natural geological formations in the region which withstood all natural onslaughts, the people carved and “engineered” homes and public spaces within those natural rock formations.  They did this with such skill and esthetics that it still echoes today with vibrancy and life.

Esperanza Dos in Manabí, Ecuador by Al Borde

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Article source: Al Borde

Here in Cabuyal people live without electricity, without sewage or running water. People do not use money; they have no jobs or professions. People do not measure time with clocks; do not use meters or rulers. Here there is no private property, nor institutions. Over here life is simple: if they are tired, they sleep, if they are bored, they play. They have ignored boundaries, morals and shoes. They do not need gods, laws, or degrees. They satisfy their needs almost obviously: the sea and the land are the supermarket and forest trees are the material to build their houses.
