Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland

The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water


What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?

Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?

Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.

Engineers are magicians.

LIKE WAVES / Padiglione della Spagna, Expo Shanghai 2010

EMDT- Miralles Tagliabue

Come in un turbine d’aria le forme si animano prendendo vita da un moto che ricorda quello del mare. Il rivestimento in pannelli di vimini conferisce dinamismo all’edificio creando una membrana in grado di filtrare la luce, il respiro.

Il vimini è l’elemento che insieme alla struttura d’acciaio costituisce il sistema costruttivo dell’edificio; risultato di una tecnica lavorativa comune sia alla Spagna che alla Cina, grazie ai suoi intrecci rende possibile quella vibrazione che pervade il padiglione come in un movimento di danza congelato.

La fluidità caratterizza tutti gli ambienti, che si susseguono con continuità invitando i fruitori a percorrerli come in un percorso i cui confini si fanno labili e cambiano continuamente.
