For the Explicit Architecture
"   Debes disfrutar de las pequeñas cosas aunque eso signifique romper otras   "
"   Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?   "


Abandoned cooling tower


I love george carlin but I’m tired of this post because he misses the obvious intersection of race and economics that played into this

Any time the government has decided to strip away (or not give) rights to minority group it’s been to the benefit of the majority (white) group

No one’s gonna take white folks rights away because there’s no one to profit from that


found it


when you keep starting your sentence over and over again because no one is paying attention to you




Research Pavilion 2014 | ICD-ITKE University of Stuttgart | Nam Hoang

The project is the latest in a series of successful biomimetic investigations by the Institute of Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE). This pavilion studies the naturally lightweight structures of the beetle elytra, a protective shell for the wings and abdomen of a beetle.
The high performance of these elytra are due to their efficient material construction, their geometric morphology and double layered systems, and the mechanical properties of their natural fiber composite. These qualities are replicated within the pavilion through the use of carbon and glass fiber, an intense investigation into fiber winding patterns, and the development of a robotic winding process involving two 6-axis industrial robots weaving a computationally generated patterns.
