The Crow’s Nest Residence by BCV Architects

BCV Architects have designed a ski cabin located at the top of the Sugar Bowl Ski Resort in California. From the architects The Crow’s Nest is a ski cabin located at 7,080 feet elevation, on the mountain of the same name in the Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. Anchored on the slope, and responsive to its setting, the cabin design explores the intersection of classic modern aesthetics, craft, and the extreme climatic conditions of the site. Sugar Bowl resort is located at historic Donner Summit in the Sierra Nevada range. The Ski Resort, founded in 1939, is one of the oldest in America. The climate and topography around Sugar Bowl makes for unusually heavy snowfall, and its relatively small residential village (112 home sites) is snow-bound through the winter. The Crow’s Nest is perched on one of the highest sites in the resort and is a true ski-in, ski-out cabin, located substantially higher in elevation than many of the ski lifts.

Infinite Light : Solar Powered Light inside PET Bottle

Infinite Light has won Green Dot Award 2013 for its innovative and sustainable design. Dr. Hakan Gursu has come up with a light that helps humanity and environment, it can be very useful in rural households that still don’t have access to electricity. At night, there are still many families that are forced to use kerosene lamps that usually cost about 25% of their weekly budgets to light them. Aside from the high cost, those lamps also increase the risk of fire and harmful smoke. Infinite Light could be a simple solution, a high quality solar powered lamp that is more cost effective. It’s a green lamp that uses solar energy or batteries to power itself placed in PET bottle. Flexible solar panel is wrapped around the bottle to collect sun’s light and those batteries convert the light into energy. The part that casts the light is attached at the bottom of the metal parts, it also functions as cover and supporter of the bottle. There’s a metal wire at the top that functions as handle wh
