music of birds, fresh air of crowded driftwoods


 
After the Colvin recreational walk--after the Robin sitting;
After the Golfsmith shopping, in term of Fresh food and physical fit,
now, a bluejay, bluejay hawks, swaying their arms, batting for a base,
resting in peaceful blood stream near Lake Michigan:
Oxygen of the universe, inhaling and exhaling, jittering bells,
fresh air, irresistible air---pleasant fuel, odd, sexy air,
taxing its way into our lungs, Kenmore cooler, puffing its breath,
sizzle the way, to our ear drums, giggling and buoyant, with blank smoke.

 Qatar Sprouts A Towering Cactus Skyscraper 

Six Word Saturday


regardless your opinion
Qatar Sprouts A Towering Cactus Skyscraper is a green onion

no matter what people think
the construction and design is world famous now and then

now listen to the story by

 


The Minister of Municipal Affairs & Agriculture (MMAA) in Qatar is getting a brand new office building that takes the form of a towering cactus. Designed by Bangkok-based Aesthetics Architects, the modern office and adjoining botanical dome take cues from cacti and the way that they successfully survive in hot, dry environments.

 Qatar is fairly barren, covered by sand, and receives and average annual rainfall of 3.2 inches. Since Qatar has the highest GDP in the world, they can afford to construct spectacular buildings that can be very efficient in the hot desert environment. Aesthetics Architects GO Group decided to model the MMA’s new office upon the cactus, taking inspiration from the way these plants deal with the scorching desert climate.

An excellent example of desert architecture, MMA’s new building is designed be very energy efficient and utilizes sun shades on its windows. Depending on the intensity of the sun during the day, the sun shades can open or close to keep out the heat when it is too much. This is similar to how a cactus chooses to perform transpiration at night rather during the day in order to retain water – another great example of biomimicry. The botanic dome at the base of the tower will house a botanical garden. Hopefully it will include an edible garden and a living machine as well.
