NAUTILUS ECO-RESORT, PHILIPPINES, by @vincentcallebautarchitectures 🌱🌿🍃 ROTATING APARTMENTS : To the East of the Nautilus Eco-Resort, 12 small spiral towers of varying heights invite travelers to live in apartments turning on their axis and following the course of the sun. Distributed in three branches, the 54 modules of three dwelling units fully rotate 360 degrees in one day. The 162 apartments offer exceptional views towards the landscape. The facades are adjusted surfaces integrating ramps to access the panoramic terraces. The central mat incorporates the vertical circulation and is covered with lush vegetation walls. At the top, a triskel roof also integrates solar tubes producing hot water and photovoltaic pergolas.

Biomimetic Learning Center 
Zero-Emission, Zero-Waste, Zero-Poverty, by @vincentcallebautarchitectures 🌱🌿🍃 In a world that is shrinking, the Nautilus Eco-Resort project wants to extend the field of action of a triple-zero eco-tourism: zero-emission, zero-waste, zero poverty. Discover the world without distorting it. Revitalize ecosystems instead of impoverishing and polluting them. Actively participate in the restoration of cultural heritage. Exchange without arrogance and enrich yourself with the local communities by sharing eco-responsible behaviors. In the years to come, the relationship that we decide to maintain with nature will determine the sustainability of the Homo-Sapiens that we are. With this mindset, the Nautilus Eco-Resort is resolutely committed to the concept of environmental resilience, militating for a new social system that is concerned about human and planetary health!

New Zealand has just passed historic climate change law to ensure a safe future for our kids and grandkids.
. 
We’ve led the world before in nuclear disarmament and in votes for women, now we need are leading again. @jamesshawmp 
The introduced amendment bill aims to :
✅Reduce all greenhouse gases (except biogenic methane) to net zero by 2050
✅Establish emissions budgets to act as stepping stones towards the long-term target.
✅Require the Govt to develop and implement policies for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
✅And has established a new, independent Climate Change Commission to provide expert advice and monitoring to help keep successive govt on track to meeting long-term goals.

Focused on this spot for 1 week. But I’m curious why linear time is so important for ppl to know..?
.
.
There are several steps... not even steps — moreso a stream of consciousness underneath mechanical recordings... as the process of doing something intuitively triggers unforeseen possibilities/realizations. The main reasons I settled here, were a giant piece of orthoclase (center bottom), and a broken tree root with preferable slink. .
.
.
Which butterfly’d out — first dabbling, “plinko”ing into a 20 minute rough build (pictured in previous post) — decidedly intermediate. But it was a quick spontaneous re-phrase with a familiar rock fam(**). .
.
I was video interviewed twice next to the rough version, which had 2 spinal rocks alternated back and forth — subpar aesthetic for my elite standards — but the stability helped me get a feel for this heavy wing, which is literally UP-cycled from an August 2018 creation(**). It seemed too heavy to safely raise up and place this way last year. . . But once I initially zeroed the forces involved on the top counterbalance over a basic spine, i sat with it for several hours.. took ~ 3 photos for documentation, studied the images, and proceeded to rework the spine and minimize contacts. Why? — because THAT was closer to spirit, despite the challenge. .
.
In a timelapse, it shows the way my whole body creates a kind of scaffold around the structure while I’m tuning.. for max stability, cuz losing control of the large ones up top would’ve been worst case scenario. Thankfully I avoided the #risk, albeit not without near disasters — saved by #breath control, meditative #focus and #reflex. .
.
The rest almost arranged itself into an #intuitive asymmetrical resonance of shapes and gravity... which lit up in direct sun, imprinting a kind of energetic symmetry onto the mind’s eye. . . So I want to transmit this #vision throughout the hive mind, cuz it entranced my #spirit for a #lovely moment, and dissolved back to #nothing. .

New Zealand's prime minister @JacindaArdern told MPs they were on the "right side of history" as her landmark climate legislation passed in parliament on Thursday. The new zero-carbon bill commits New Zealand to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees with a 2050 greenhouse gas reduction target. Speaking after the bill was passed, Ardern said; "I absolutely believe and continue to stand by the statement that climate change is the biggest challenge of our time."

With the exception of 2018, This “orb” creation has been a kind of annual ritual for me since 2012. While the finished form is nothing short of extraordinary to see in person, it’s the overall process that I’ve grown to love the most. Everything from hiking up the flatirons with heavy camera gear, to articulating 3 dimensional physical and visual symmetry with an abundance of varying size and thickness, but uniformly flat flagstone, in an all-or-nothing 7-hour flow on the side of a mountain, with a variety of bird song over the distant hum of ‘civilization’ down below, is an excellent prescription for a kind of soul whispering. . . .
.
Since no one has ever really seen the creation process besides the odd glimpse from serendipitous hikers, I decided to timelapse the build process, beginning from the neck up. Snapped about 4000 frames at a 7 sec interval, and finished just in time for sunset to round out the wave.
.
.
A few things I especially love about this instance, is that it broke a 2 year silence of the ritual, it was my first creation of autumn 2019, the whim appeared during new moon, instead of the traditional full.  It was a testament to using the heartbreak of a ‘failed’ attempt (the previous day) as fuel for ultimately succeeding. And it was spun into existence during the birth of my cousin’s first child.. . So, in a sense, the previous day’s collapse, despite how angry I became with myself over a post completion error, was perfectly timed for this day. . . ❤️🧙🏼‍♂️

PLASTIC: has a poor reputation because when it is littered, it is bad for wildlife [1], and degrades very slowly [2]. However, if we improve our reuse, recycling, and disposal of plastic [17], then plastic seems like a great option for many things due to its low carbon footprint [3].
.
PAPER: The carbon footprint of a paper bag is similar to, or greater than, that of a plastic bag [3,7]. However, since a paper bag is more likely to break, it will usually be re-used fewer times than a plastic bag [3].
.
COTTON: has a reputation as a great alternative to plastic [6]. Sadly, this idea is just a result of clever marketing [5]. Growing cotton requires vast quantities of water: ~2700 liters to make a t-shirt [9]. This causes huge water shortages, such as the drying of the 4th biggest lake in the world (the Aral Sea), which is now 10% of its original size [10]. Much of the lake was replaced by desert, causing pesticide-laden dust storms that cause throat cancer - this area has the highest rates of this disease in the world [9]. Organic cotton is made without using pesticides [3]. This is good for the farmers [11,12], but means the crop grows slower and needs more land, worsening the overall environmental impact [3,13]. Excluding littered plastic, the total environmental impact of a cotton bag is ~7100x worse than a thin plastic bag; organic cotton is ~20,000x worse [3]!
.
POLYESTER: needs much less water than cotton to be made [14]. It can be made from recycled plastics, and can itself be recycled, so should in theory should not require much new oil to be extracted [14]. However, polyester has a higher carbon footprint than cotton [15]. Plus, every time you wash it, microplastics are released into the water system, eventually polluting the ocean [14,18]. And, it cannot be coloured with natural dyes, meaning water pollution is worse [14].
.
So, it’s a complicated picture! In the end, the best way to save resources and the environmental harm caused in production, is to buy fewer things or to get them second-hand [16]. We will write about further alternatives like hemp in the future. :)
