October Newsletter

Fast forward to October.

The big news this month must be that GREENinc is one of 50 international firms featured in a new book called Futurescapes, published by Thames and Hudson. Check it out.

James put up a post on the Facebook site saying he thought he’d like to try out this capsule hotel. The lights in your capsule gradually come on to wake you up in the morning without disturbing the guy in the next cubblyhole.

Does a sleeping bag count as a capsule? I slept out in one in the Imfolozi Game Reserve last month on a wilderness trail. Everyone’s lights came on at the same time, except the guy doing night watch. And you could sit up without bumping your head.

James also posted a link to post on growing infrastructure. With a bit of patience, something beautiful and useful, too. He suggests we could use models in photos of our work, like this series of Government Plaza in Tokyo. Maybe, but I’m sure we could do better!

Check out these cool portable LED lamps that Anton posted. He also posted some new pics of the Botswana Innovation Hub.

Finally, it’s really worth downloading this short film by Alex Roman called The Third and The Seventh. But be warned, you may never be happy with your animations again. Lovely.

’til next time…
