Thin Concrete Roof

I stumbled across this method when looking at concrete roof structures.  It involves pouring concrete over cloth and chicken wire.

Television series that is pretty cool and pretty dated

So I have mentioned this series to some, but I thought I would post it for all of you.  The series is called Connections: an Alternative View of Change.  The series was done in the 70s by a guy named James Burke and discusses how the technologies that we take for granted come about.  He refers to technology as an interdependent network of inventions that build on each other.  When one piece of the network is removed the network falls apart.  Attached is the first 10min segment of the first episode.  There are ten episodes in the series and I think most are on youtube.  Enjoy

:(

I dont really have anything to say, or even a nifty link to share, at the moment. But I just wanted to encourage anyone who does find something, even if its not really architecture-y, to share it. Because right now our blog is pretty much dead, and thats sad.

It doesnt have to be fancy or super in-depth. I just don’t want this blog to become completely dead and irrelevant, when it could at least be an interesting collection of things any of us have found amusing, interesting, inspiring, funny, or just wanted to share with everyone easily.

 

So people. POST your/some STUFF! please?
