  1. Sure we've seen glorified dehumidifiers like this before, but we're a sucker for any aquatic wonder which claims to solve the world's drinking water shortage. The exterior wall-mounted Watermill from Element Four is the latest "water from thin air" contraption and produces up to 3.2 gallons of water a day, pumped through a trusty ultraviolet sterilizer. But more importantly, it offers to hydrate your family of 6 (according to EF) for a mere thirty-five cents a day in power, not including whatever price Element Four decides to sell it for. Or you could just stick a bucket on your roof and be done with it -- we hear it rains occasionally. http://www.gadgetreview.com/2008/09/the-watermill-converts-humid-air-to-drinkable-water.html
  2. Munch Museum to join Opera House in Oslo's new cultural district Spanish firm Herreros Arquitectos has won first prize in the invited international competition for a master plan of the Bjorvika neighborhood, Oslo, proposing the Munch Museum as the focus. The future complex formed by the Munch Museum MM and the Stenersen Museum Collections is not only to safeguard and disseminate a basic heritage of the history and character of Norwegian culture. The complex is conceived as an institution which is open to the city and highly visible, that “which must be visited many times in a lifetime”, said the spokesperson for Herreros. The project’s spaces include a Leisure Island; Beach Area; Museum Island; Munch Plaza; Library Plaza; Bispekaia Market Square and Housing Courtyards. The Museum building is located at the end of the Pauselkia Peninsula, near the Oslo Opera House, avoiding the cones of perception and ensuring views over the fort from the surrounding mountains are kept. With this position Herreros aim to intensify the tension between the fjord and solid ground, and to avoid the arrogant gesture of placing it frontally. The museum is built as a vertical concrete box of 16 m of free light hermetically sealed except when the program requires opening of spaces. It is built with four 40 cm thick screens which form a prism, the long sides of which require buttresses (60x30cm) every 6m which embrace lightly post-tensioned flagstones. The gap resulting from levelling up the buttresses in order to have exhibition rooms with continuous walls generates an installations chamber which is highly versatile and which runs along the building and ensures exhaustive control of the networks in each room. The proposal as a whole is notably integrated with energy and environmental sensitivity issues. The mass use of water from the fjord as a temperature controlling element in the building is based on the elimination of air conditioning as far as possible, substituting it for an element which is easily treated, subject to work at low temperature and with a minimum waste of energy. http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=11495

  4. Les rues pietonnieres sont un lien extraordinaire entre la ville et ses habitants. On veut faire revenir les familles en Centre ville, la rue pietonne en serait un élément attractif mais dans quel secteur de la ville? Quelle serait la rue ou vous voudriez entendre plus les pas des passants que les moteurs des voitures?
  5. 18 mai 2007 Le square Saint-Louis a retrouvé sa fontaine la semaine dernière. La restauration a été annoncée au mois d'octobre dernier. Les travaux se sont échelonnés tout l'hiver. La restauration était devenue nécessaire pour assurer l’intégrité physique et maintenir la valeur artistique de l’œuvre. La restauration de l’œuvre d’art a été effectuée en atelier par la firme Dolléans Inc. Art Conservation, au montant de 72 609 $. La fontaine fut réinstallée le 16 avril et mise en opération le 8 mai. Réalisée en 1849, la fontaine en fonte de fer, située au centre d’un grand bassin peint dans le square Saint-Louis, fait partie d’une série de fontaines du même type à Montréal, dont plusieurs sont maintenant disparues. Ces œuvres d’art datent de la fin du XIXe siècle et début du XXe siècle. Les éléments constituant ce type de fontaine étaient à l’époque vendus sur catalogue par Mott Iron Works. Les différentes composantes de ces œuvres permettaient d’ériger des fontaines différentes et personnalisées. «Cette fontaine, qui date de l’époque victorienne, représente un élément patrimonial important pour notre métropole et pour l’arrondissement du Plateau-Mont-Royal. C’est pourquoi je suis heureuse de la décision de conserver et de mettre en valeur cet élément identitaire qui occupe une place particulière dans le cœur des résidents du Plateau», a affirmé Helen Fotopulos, mairesse de l’arrondissement du Plateau-Mont-Royal.
