Tobias Weiss and Gernot Reisenhofer have designed a cool series of terraced hillside homes that save energy heating and cooling by integrating into the landscape. Nestled against the surrounding hills, each green-roofed apartment takes advantage of passive solar design, rainwater recycling, and photovoltaic sunshades. Not really a new idea (even the rendering looks retro) but it does look like it has a nice neighborhood feel.
Great ( if not also complicated) recipes for dozens of interesting ice creams. So far we have made the black coffee which was excellent and we modified the vanilla to make chocolate chip for Ian. Not surprising but the key to this is patience and quality ingredients (especially the vanilla). Thanks Ann.
The idea is there but the execution is a little too coarse and uncoordinated. The use of orange is bold but could have used a little relieve, perhaps on the surfaces in the "folded" area. The handset which is the perhaps the best feature when compared with cell phone ergonomics does not seem to relate to the body. But still, I like it.
Is kodak coming back? I don't know but at least they have stopped trying to copy Leica. Such a talented team, it is a shame that they can't seem to let go of what they want to make and focus on making things people want. The proportions here are a bit dated but still interesting.
Best BBQ in chicago? I think so. Best restaurant in chicago. Not sure about that but it is pretty amazing. Just be ready to wait for a table because they do not take reservations and also plan to look for a parking place for a while.
