GREEN QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Why are we being forced to choose between the economy and the environment? We tend to forget that without an environment we would not have an economy, as everything we consume and I mean everything comes from our environment."

~ Franke James (contemporary artist, photographer, writer)

聪明空气是一家小型社会企业,用价格实在的DIY空气净化器改善居室空气质量。

2013年1月,雾霾袭击北京,在中国做研究的美国博士生Thomas Talhelm开始质疑“市面上的空气净化器为什么如此价高?” 经过一番研究,他用在淘宝上买的HEPA滤网绑在一个家用电风扇上,制成简易的空气净化器,并用颗粒计数仪进行效果测试,然后把测试结果发布在自己的博客上。

几家媒体报到了Thomas的DIY净化器,北京能源网络提出为他举办DIY空气净化器活动,让更多人用上物美价廉的DIY空气净化器。

举办过几次DIY活动之后,Thomas发现即使大家知道如何DIY净化器,但不少人反映“找不到合适的风扇”、“不知道哪里卖的HEPA滤网信得过”。于是Thomas与朋友Anna和Gus合作,在2013年9月创办了“聪明空气”网站,为大家提供尺寸合适的DIY净化器风扇和质量最优的HEPA滤网。

聪明空气一直坚持数据、测试方法的公开透明,想让更多人花更少的钱,就能在中国用上空气净化器,呼吸上洁净健康的空气。

Anti-tectonics

In China and the rest of the world the concept of Smart Cities is becoming more and more a new model for the development of urban environment.

But what is a “Smart City”?

Architects, Momo Andrea Destro and Eugenia Murialdo, explain the ideals behind "anti-tectonics" and planning cities for an intelligent future.

3rd Beijing Environment & Healthy Lifestyle Fair

International Environment Day is on 5th of June and to mark this important date the 3rd Beijing Environment and Healthy Lifestyle Fair will take place on Saturday 28 June from 10:00 to 17:00 at the Hilton Beijing.

The First Beijing Environment and Sustainability Fair event, held on 15 June 2013, was such an amazing success that both Exhibitors and Visitors asked us not to make it an annual event but to organize two events per year.

The Second Beijing Environment and Sustainability Fair was even better. The majority of the original exhibitors returned for the second Fair and there were many new faces.

China's Unquenchable Thirst

Hot & Hungry

As part of our ongoing series on water issues, we want to bring Oxfam's John Magrath and Leslie Morris-Iveson report on water, climate change risks and the need for local response plans to your attention:

Climate change is all about water; a hotter world with more extreme and chaotic weather will profoundly affect the water cycle and every nation will see impacts. The recent United States National Climate Assessment has been the most forthright report to say that people in the USA are being affected by such changes right now.

INTELLIGENT URBANISM

Intelligent Urbanism

In China and the rest of the world the concept of Smart Cities is becoming more and more a new model for the development of urban environment.

But what is a “Smart City”?

Are technology, data management, and service design the only approaches to this topic? Or is it an entirely new vision of city planning that could generate a real urban revolution?
Anti-tectonics is investigating these issues since early 2013, strong of previous experiences in masterplanning and architecture in China, also working extensively on research based projects. Anti-tectonics is currently working with European and Chinese institutions and companies in the development of alternative designs and scenarios for better cities.

Led by architects Giannantonio Bongiorno, Momo Andrea Destro, and Eugenia Murialdo, the program has been launched in the context of Beijing Design Week 2013 (26th September - 3rd October 2013)

This time, the guest Momo Andrea Destro and his partner Eugenia Murialdo will reveal to us the ultimate mystery about Anti-tectonics and Smart City.

双城生活:短暂的辉煌

这是点废成绿环保组织与今日美术馆合作推出的第五场有关环保的艺术家沙活动。同时担任GtB的北京方面负责人和今日美术馆的实习生,这样的双重身份给我带来了些许的压力也有更多的感悟。与谭思考老师的交流中,我了解到他作为一名旅居艺术家的生活方式及其对于他的艺术创作产生的深远影响。在不同城市中的来回穿梭,对于不同生活环境的作出的艺术应答以及不时的爽朗大笑让我对谭老师倍感有趣和亲切,同时也让我对于角色之间的转化有了更精确的拿捏。
谭老师有着跨国跨文化的生活背景。祖辈是移居到印尼泗水的福建人,由于父亲学习德文而举家前往荷兰海牙。那也是谭老师出生的地方。后搬回泗水,因苏加诺当权时期反华气氛紧张,谭老师一家而后便定居澳洲墨尔本。如此这般折腾的搬家史让谭老师从小对于家的意识很淡薄,虽在澳洲完成了学业,但澳洲对于他来说并没有家的温暖。可以说他是个一直在路上的人,旅居是他的第二天性。直到1987年第一次踏上中国的土地,他的心中才有了微微的安定。也许是对于中国有种似曾相识的亲切感,或是蓬勃发展的中国及其深厚的文化底蕴激发了他的创作灵感。两者都有。

Retul Bike Fit Services

Retül 3-D Technology

June 15th – June 20th, the Retül Bike Fit team is visiting Beijing again. Serk has booked one of the leading trainers – Winston Tam for a few days so you can get access to a first class fitter and (in my opinion) the best technology for bike fit.

Why bike fit?
It’s the single most important factor for improving your performance and more importantly your comfort on the bike. Forget about wider tyres, more aero wheels or electronic shifting till you have at least got your position on the bike correct. Cycling is an activity with constant repeated movements. If you are in the wrong position on the bike it not only causes pain but can also cause injury.
