The managers of a recycling center in Silicon Valley are looking for a woman who dropped off an extremely rare early Apple I computer, which turned out to be worth $200,000. Several weeks ago, an unnamed woman donated several boxes of computer parts to a Clean Bay Area recycling center, and the center is hoping to identify her so that she can share in the earnings after the rare computer sold at auction.

Elon Musk replies to criticism regarding $4.9 billion in government subsidies

Elon Musk has built an empire through innovation in electric cars, solar power and space technology – however a recent Los Angeles Times article called him out for relying on $4.9 billion in government subsidies. On Monday Musk rebutted the article, saying that was “misleading and deceptive to the reader.” Musk said the backing his companies get from state and federal governments represents legitimate business practices – and he called the Times report “inexcusable” and inaccurate. “The article makes it seem as though my company is getting some huge check, which is fundamentally false,” Musk said. “None of the incentives are necessary. They are all helpful.”

Are you a student who knows all the sustainable architecture buzzwords but has little to no idea how to apply those eco-friendly techniques on-site? You’re not alone. To help students better understand construction terminology, materials, and technical detailing, Wilf Meynell of Studio Bark and TRADA University Liaison Manager Liz Turner launched the 2015 Bark Live-Build, an eight-week student workshop to teach students how to design and build an eco-friendly building in England’s Norfolk county. To join, email Studo Bark a short 200 to 300 word personal statement. Accommodation and meals are free, however, students will need to pay for an £80 personal toolbox, including items like a handsaw and claw hammer, which they can keep after the workshop. Only eight spots are available. The deadline to apply is June 8, 2015.

Google launches $20 million challenge to innovate designs for people with disabilities

prosthetic limbs, robot arms, Mission ARM Japan

The one billion plus people around the world who live with a disability, physical or developmental, face enormous challenges that too often are ignored by the able-bodied majority. People with disabilities and those who love them endure despite these challenges, but they need advocates to help make the world accessible. It’s hard to think of a more influential, global advocate than Google. The tech giant recently announced the Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities, a $20 million grant program that aims to “build awareness, identify solutions and help create universal access for people with disabilities.”

Is this Chinese building a knockoff of Herzog and de Meuron's "Jenga" tower?

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but the adage doesn’t exactly fly when it comes to proprietary architectural designs. A stealthy investigation by Curbed has uncovered that Chinese developer Wide Horizon seems to be a huge fan of Herzog and de Meuron‘s Jenga-esque 56 Leonard Street tower in New York City. In fact, it can be argued that many features of the company’s new development in Chengdu, China look like they were basically “borrowed” from the downtown NYC building.

The Flatiron Building is the next model in Lego Architecture line

filed under: Architecture, Art, LEGO

The Flatiron Building in New York City is an iconic landmark that has been at the corner of Broadway and Fifth Avenue for over 100 years. Now, LEGO has taken the Flatiron and turned it into a buildable, affordable LEGO model. While not quite as refined and detailed as the original, this model has the classic Flatiron shape while lacking some of the windows and other features. Unlike some LEGO Architecture sets, like Fallingwater which retails around $135 and the Imperial Hotel at $79, this set is only $40 and comes with a mere 471 pieces, as well as a nameplate and background information on the building.
