Garbage masquerading as art or in this case architecture.
No, this form of structure will not sweep the earth. It will not be used by millions. It is made and talked about merely to demonstrate the faux aesthetic "taste" of the culturally "superior" commenter/critic.
The more uglly the better, the more shocking, the more avant garde blah blah blah. The real product is the display of cultural superiority, not housing.
Nitrates that would be washed away into storm drains, I presume.
Aren't nitrates fertilizer? Isn't fertilizer run-off one of the largest, if not the largest contributor to offshore dead zones?
Where are we gonna get all the potash?
You seen the spec price on that?
Nitrates kill salmonids, fwiw.
@2, the run-off could feasibly be diverted to useful purposes such as fertilizing fields or growing alage for biofuels.
Anyhoo, the whole thing smacks of polishing a turd. The production of concrete is one of the greatest contributors to global CO2 emissions.
more like completely finish freeway park off. the homeless & the mentally ill aren't a cultural asset.
Earthships built with slave labor are the way of the future.
Those concrete bedrooms look as if they would be very hot and stuffy. Why not use recycled wood and plastic for the same purpose?
Multiple posts will be a thing of the past.
Turn the million dollar toilets into hostels.
Those hostels are just asking to be rolled in the middle of the night by a burly band of trouble makers.
Dear Charles Mudede,
Girl, you crazy.
I regret I have but one built structure to give for my soon to be invaded by Canada country.
*the additive — under the influence of sunlight — binds ...* - so it would be of little use in the Pacific NW.
Carbonate, typically extracted from the earth to make the cement (used in concrete) can be made through flowing waste CO2 from natural gas power plants through water. Essentially, they've turned cement production carbon-negative.
They're already setting this up in California, and they're going to probably ramp it up as civil engineering folks trust the new stuff is as good as the old.
Hobbit holes above ground...
1. Nitrates are not something we want more of in our runoff. Nitrates --> algae blooms --> dead zones. Oh, and also blue baby syndrome.
2. Are those Ikea lamps?
