How did Bike sauna come to existence?

The idea of creating a Bike sauna for city bikers came out spontaneously last year at a Christmas party of bike servicing outfit Bajkazyl at Rašínovo nábřeží. For that occasion we brought our older concept – sauna on wheels that can be dragged behind a car. That evening our sauna went through serious testing by more than 40 people. Everyone liked the concept very much, it was perhaps its greatest success yet. But we couldn’t ignore many calls for sauna that could be dragged behind a bicycle.

Bike Share System in Copenhagen, Denmark by RAFAA

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Article source: RAFAA

Higher Density & Sustainable Transportation

In the post-oil era, the cost of transportation will rise dramatically. The solution lies in the densification of the city as well as in finding alternative ways of commuting. The long term question remains, how much density Copenhagen can afford and at what price. A first step into the right direction has been done by expanding the existing, extensive network of bike lanes into the suburbs. Additionally, there is also a network of 13 highway bike routes for bicycle commuters in planning. They will connect the suburbs with the city centre. The new Bicycle Sharing System must be integrated into this concept to create synergies with other fields, e.g. public and individual transportation. It must become an integral part of a comprehensive transport and energy policy.

6×11 Alpine hut in Stara fuzina, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: OFIS arhitekti

This hut is situated in a small Alpine village, part of the Triglav national park with very strict rules on construction and architectural design. The client bought the site together with an existing construction permit for a generic project. The demand of the client was not to change the construction permit but to change the elements of the house to suit his family – to position the openings toward the views and to increase its sustainability.

The Truffle is a piece of nature built with earth, full of air. A space within a stone that sits on the ground and blends with the territory. It camouflages, by emulating the processes of mineral formation in its structure, and integrates with the natural environment, complying with its laws.

The NYBILLBOARD in Brooklyn, Staten Island by Prechteck Architect

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Prechteck

This proposal seeks for a way to add a new horizontal layer to Manhattan. An elevated link between towers, separated from traffic and noise, filled with public functions, bicycle lanes and walkways. The groundarea covered by towers will be given back to the public by integrating its roofs  to the grid of linking walkways, elevated gardens and public facilities and, as a unique aspect, it introduces public life into the skyline of Manhattan.

Cradle in Santa Monica, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Commissioned by the City of Santa Monica, Cradle is situated on the exterior wall of a parking structure at a shopping mall – originally designed by Frank Gehry.  The site is near the beach, and is heavily trafficked by tourists on foot and in automobiles. An aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres, the sculpture functions structurally like an enormous Newton’s Cradle – the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives in Hollywood films. Each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination of gravity and neighboring balls. The whole array reflects distorted images of passersby.

Ecco by NAU

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Article source: NAU

Since their introduction, automobiles have been a source of passion and meanings as individual as their drivers.  Today they are often associated with luxury, performance or safety, but the Ecco aims to remind us they can still be about freedom.  Following on the heels of design classics like the Airstream or VW camper van, this concept vehicle gets passengers to their destination, and becomes a temporary home when they get there.  Compact, stylish and aerodynamic while on the road, when it is parked, the Ecco expands to provide a level space and comfort than its fore bearers could only dream of.
