The Dragonfly for New York City (Vincent Callebaut, 2011)

The 600 m high vertical farm building was planned to New York City’s Roosevelt Island. It could contain 28 different farms fro vegetables  meat, fruit and others. The building would be self-sufficient because of the solar panels and wind power.

The Emotional see thru Dress

The dress contains “e-foils,” (opaque coils mad of “electronics, LEDs, copper and other media) & response to your heartbeat, making the dress more of less transparent.

Europa City, suburbs of Paris

The 0.3 sq mile (0.8 sq km) green-roofed city is the dream of the Danish architecture firm BIG led by Bjarke Ingels. Europa City will include restaurants, shopping facilities, housing and office spaces, but there will be a pool a real ski slope, too.


Try Air To Stay Dry

Back in May last year I did a roundup of the Most Unconventional Umbrellas seen here on YD. I wish I had stumbled across the Air Umbrella then, because it’s the mother of unconventional designs! Imagine an umbrella with no canopy! The barrier between you and the raindrops is a sheet of steady air that is blown out by this hollow pipe. Physics and a lot of engineering stuff is clogging my brains to accept this design, but if I put these dark clouds of doubt out of the way, we may have something in this concept. Think about it!

  • You can control the length of the stick and the size of the air canopy.
