Me three. Anxious and claustrophobic. Good for getting people to not linger; bad for drawing people in and getting them to stay, relax, and enjoy their beverages. I think it may be because the design is reminiscent of a collapsible structure in a state
This! Ahh the awkward “Wonder if someone else thought of this?” post.
I read “Gariep” on my front page of reddit and I was like, woah, hold up there, that’s a word I don’t see floating around in the wild very often…
I didn’t do much to be honest. A couple of highpass filters set to blend setting ‘soft light’ to sharpen the image. Then a black and white filter at around 30% opacity to desaturate the colours. I also used the b&w filter to darken
That word…I do not think it means what you think it means. >Infrastructure: the basic physical and organizational structures and facilities (e.g., buildings, roads, and power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise
They take it for granted. I recently visited Rome. There are literally ruins everywhere. It’s still the same city that Caesar lived in, but with modern infrastructure piled on ruins piled on ruins. I saw a place where they were doing roadwork and it
The Cheltenham Races attracts about 80,000 people a day over Gold Cup week, about half of them travel over from Ireland. It’s a wonderful drunken thing.
It’s supposed to represent a dragon boat (traditional Chinese boat). Taiwan is also a seismically active area, that might have something to do with it.
Too bad not a lot of talent happens in that pretty building.
Here are a few illustrations of the building with the original round opening: http://image2.xitek.com/forum/200503/1604/160453/160453_1110601672.jpg http://www.bhcglobal.net/Pictures/BHC_98/MEDIUM/4.jpg http://norcalman.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/fig4b.jpg http://images.businessweek.com/ss/07/03/0315_skyscrapers/image/shanghai_world.jpg
This picture’s thumbnail looks entirely different from the full size. Ignoring the vertical rows of trees, it looks like a shot of the tree line taken from one of those fields. The white ground in the top right and the shadows of the clouds
I love that prison, architecture was so dramatic back then. Just imagine how that presentation went to the king or whoever. maybe it was even their suggestion architect – “…and then, there’s one large arch in the middle” king – “what if you shortened
Just about to finish my fourth semester in a subset of civil engineering, have been staring at vibrations and dynamics text all day, and my mind immediately starting racing when I saw this. Just hoping the prof doesn’t see this before Monday.
Ha, I’m from Champaign and our local paper had a great quote regarding our performance Saturday. >Illinois looked outmatched nearly the entire first half. The second half seemed merely a way for Washington fans to pass the time on a picturesque day in the
I take the ferry pretty often. It’s hard to tell exactly how many are empty in the picture, but it’s typically pretty full. After looking closer, I think the picture may have been taken from the Alameda Ferry Terminal.

[Here](https://i.imgur.com/oQvBTYi.jpg)’s a pic from inside the parliament chamber during the first republic. As a bonus, [here](https://i.imgur.com/mAuF1vg.jpg)’s the first free German parliament, the [National Assembly of 1848](https://i.imgur.com/pDHgEJN.jpg), in St. Paul’s church in Frankfurt (Imperial city of king-elections in the HRR).
Ewing Kauffman (the namesake) was a pharmaceutical entreprenuer, among many things. He basically started a pharmaceutical company, sold it for a crap ton of money and was very charitable with the profits. The Kansas City Royals baseball stadium is named after him as well
33 Thomas was a AT&T routing center. It was not designed for human’s to inhabit other than security, and maintenance. Those large rectangular openings are ventilation shafts for computers which originally were vacuum tube based. It is designed to seal itself off in the
Which, per km, is the second highest price for a train connection(that is not an airport train) in Europe. Only Eurostar London-Brussels is more expensive. Oh, and this was for the old line, which has since been shortened. http://sverigesradio.se/sida/artikel.aspx?programid=2054&artikel=5786670
Agreed it looks like giant molded plastic parts that snap together. Edit: just looked at http://buildipedia.com/aec-pros/featured-architecture/zaragozas-bridge-pavilion and http://www.arcspace.com/features/zaha-hadid-architects/zaragoza-bridge-pavilion/ … its a bit better inside and with engineering details but I still think the exterior looks ridiculous in the context of its environment.
As someone who currently lives in DC, I was thinking this was supposed to be in Vienna, VA at first, which was obviously a little confusing (since that isn’t exactly a major skyscraper center).
The short version is that the electrical contacts which open and close to connect or disconnect the circuit are enclosed in a sealed chamber filled with SF6. That’s it. But why SF6? If you open the contacts of a high voltage breaker in air,
