You are stronger than you think.
Remember, remember, remember.
The ticking heard from Abraham Lincoln’s pocket watch as he sits at his desk and plays with it is the actual ticking sound from the watch he carried in his pocket. An audio engineer went to the museum in Kentucky where the watch is kept to get sound bites from it.
That is absolutely fantastic! Talk about dedication to authenticity…
It’s a long road up to recovery from here….
Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall | ICD/ITKE/IIGS University of Stuttgart | Via
The Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall is an architectural prototype building and a showcase for the current developments in computational design and robotic fabrication for lightweight timber construction. Funded by the European Union and the state of Baden‐Württemberg, the building is the first to have its primary structure entirely made of robotically prefabricated beech plywood plates. The newly developed timber construction offers not only innovative architectural possibilities; it is also highly resource efficient, with the load bearing plate structure being just 50mm thin. This is made possible through integrative computational design, simulation, fabrication and surveying methods.

A picture worth a thousand words, indeed.

That was the problem with Harriet. It can’t be conjugated in Icelandic.
Icelandic resident Tristan Cardew • Discussing the situation regarding his 10-year-old daughter Harriet, whose passport renewal was denied because it’s not an approved name under Icelandic law. The girl was able to travel previously on a passport that listed her name as “Stúlka,” or “girl.” “But this time, the authorities have decided to apply the letter of the law,” Cardew said. “And that says no official document will be issued to people who do not bear an approved Icelandic name.” (via shortformblog)
Naming laws are a little bit ridiculous.

Does anyone know anything about this tiny house?
The photo was spotted on Pinterest. The caption read, “Passed on a road West of Worcester.” Does anyone know anything about this tiny house, like who built it? It looks incredible! I’d love to see the interior and learn how it was built.

…unique for its ability to be reconfigured by the owners in project and also post-delivery. The interior walls consist of lightweight panels that can be easily relocated or removed by two people. Several years have been spent refining the concept in order to arrive at a finished product that would be quick to manufacture, easy to assemble, of good quality and affordable.
The interior wall system consists of frames that are snapped into place in […] tracks. As a result, the rooms can be expanded or reduced in increments of 1.5 m. Finish panels are then attached to both sides of the wall frames.
…the decor of the house can be changed just by flipping the [wood veneer] panels over. Similar panels can be used to cover the windows as needed for privacy or to block out unwanted sunlight and views.
Whoa! Way cool!
