Dark Future Ahead 16 – News from the ‘Net of a Cyberpunk bent30 June, 2016
Lots of information on architecture this time around but buildings are important. Now, tune in for the latest interesting and cyberpunk inspiring stories that I have found:
When business travelers suspect they will need help, they often contract with International SOS (or similar firm) to provide advice and action when required (from the Economist, may requires registration). Seems like the sort of company who might have to hire specialists now and then.
Would you feel safe in a skyscraper made of wood? I think I would as long as it was not too tall. But lots of opportunities for incorporating things into the structure of the building if you can hit the right point of the production process. Also, a very green way to construct buildings if done properly.
The future of building is green is various ways, visit the Edge in Amsterdam, a green, interconnected office building complete with security drones(!). It is the greenest building built so far with a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) score of 98.36%, the highest ever, making it the target to match (or beat) for sustainability in buildings.
How security uses intelligent design of buildings to control your movement and get a good look at you. Things to remember for people on both sides of the law. Remember, cameras are everywhere, plan accordingly.
What visions of the coming dark future have you seen recently?
