These are a few of my favorite things
Hi beautiful people
This week's three things that I noticed, and think are good work. :)
A vertical farm, a pay it forward card game, and a new instagram account I'm enjoying.
Have a good one!
1. Vertical farms
Vertical Farming is sprouting (pun intended) up everywhere, from a proposed 100 hectare farm in Shanghai to a concept winning the eVolo Skyscraper competition.
International architecture firm Sasaki just unveiled plans for a spectacular 100-hectare urban farm set amidst the soaring skyscapers of Shanghai. The project is a mega farming laboratory that will meet the food needs of almost 24 million people while serving as a center for innovation, interaction, and education within the world of urban agriculture - In Habitat
Polish designers Pawel Lipiński and Mateusz Frankowski have envisioned a conceptual high-rise building that would act as a vertical farm, able to be disassembled and moved to different locations across sub-Saharan Africa.
The Mashambas Skyscraper project won first place in the eVolo Skyscraper Competition, which annually invites architects and designers to conceive futuristic towers. The winner was chosen from a pool of 444 entries. - Dezeen
2. game for humanity
A card game that you play in real life, just noticed it for the first time at my local coffeeshop this morning. It is a deck of 30 cards, each with a random act of kindness task on. Once you have completed the task, you hand the card to the total stranger so they can 'pay it forward'.
Go order yours here and follow them on Facebook and Instagram to get inspired.
3. Instagram: Ed Freeman
My new favorite Instagram account is by Ed Freeman, photographer based in LA. I especially like his shots of buildings / landscapes, and use of colour. Very, very good.
(O, there is some nudity on the account, for the sensitive ones..)
