2 wearable technologies make kinetic power a reality
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
Researchers have long pursued the notion of capturing energy from movement of the human body through activities such as walking or running.

Frank Lloyd Wright New Jersey house reborn in Arkansas
artnet
It seems as if no undertaking is too unwieldy — or expensive — for the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to handle. Last year, the Bentonville, Arkansas, institution (with unfathomably deep pockets, thanks to the largess of museum founder and Walmart zillionaire Alice Walton), announced that it had purchased, for an undisclosed sum, an important Usonian house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

ThyssenKrupp announces horizontal elevator prototype
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
The dream of the horizontal elevator is no longer the stuff of sweet, candy-making fiction. Recently, German company ThyssenKrupp unveiled a Wonka-esque prototype system that allows multiple elevator cabs to move vertically and horizontally in a single shaft. The result: elevators that can operate at a higher capacity while taking up less relative space, particularly in the service of super-tall buildings whose forms have been constrained by the technological and financial limits of internal transportation systems.

Shigeru Ban's work with wood
ArchDaily
Shigeru Ban’s portfolio is a strange dichotomy, split between shelters for natural disaster refugees and museums commissioned by wealthy patrons of the arts. Even stranger is the fact that, in both cases, Ban’s material palette frequently incorporates recycled cardboard, paper and old beer crates. The Pritzker prize laureate is unique in this regard, and so great is his predilection for recycled paper tubes, that he has become known as the “Paper Architect.”
