This morning Americans across the country arose at ungodly hours, braving the dark, cold, and unruly crowds all in the name of SHOPPING. Each year Black Friday marks the upcoming holiday season with a day full of frenzied shopping, and the infamous event has become as synonymous with Thanksgiving weekend as turkey itself. While some will spend the day trolling the malls for deals, thankfully there are more than a handful of people (like us!) who are just saying “NO” to excessive consumerism and spending the day doing more wholesome activities for Buy Nothing Day. Buy Nothing is a non-profit organization initiated by Canadian Mennonites 20 years ago, inspiring people all over the world to say no to just say no to Black Friday. This year why buck the Black Friday trend by choosing not to purchase anything for the holidays at all. Are you up to the challenge?

This article was originally published in October of 2011.

Earlier this year we reported on the opening of the stunning Salvador Dalí Museum located in St. Petersburg, Florida. The museum is home to the world’s largest collection of Dalí works, and since its debut this past April, the dazzling venue has already welcomed over 300,000 visitors. With its clean minimalist lines juxtaposed against a sparkling geodesic glass atrium, the spectacular structure designed by HOK stands as a work of art in its own right, while still paying homage to the spirit of Salvador Dalí. The building also brings more to the table than just its looks. Housing over 2,000 pieces of Dalí’s most important works, the museum is sited within a corner of the country that often finds itself battered by severe storms with catastrophic results. To prepare for the worst, HOK designed the shell of the structure to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. The design also features numerous green systems, including a solar hot water powered dehumidification system, high efficiency HVAC and ventilation systems, and strategic daylighting to illuminate the interiors. We recently sat down with principal architect and Senior Vice President of HOK Yann Weymouth who enlightened us on the intricacies of the design, and what it took to get the museum built. Jump ahead for our exclusive interview with Yann as he explains the design, and how his team of architects and engineers used Building Information Modeling to build a space that’s not only beautiful and sustainable, but disaster-proof.

Previously on Inhabitat we’ve written about Made in Space’s ambitious plans to bring 3D printing to the International Space Station. But how will such technology work when everything is floating? To find out, we caught up with Made in Space co-founder, Mike Chen. Mike discussed with us the challenges of extruding plastic in microgravity, how one designs a printer made for space, and how this technology could benefit future space missions. Keep reading to learn more about how the ever-popular, advanced manufacturing method is entering the final frontier.

Green Building in Cold Climates: Inhabitat Interview with Bernat and Kate of Maison Durable Portneuf

Maison Durable Portneuf, Biomur, Kate Alvo

We’ve seen many examples of how well green buildings can work in temperate and warm climates, but what about the harsher conditions that can lash homes in rural Quebec? Inhabitat recently had the opportunity to interview Bernat Ferragut and Kate Alvo of Maison Durable Portneuf about the innovative techniques they used to create their eco-friendly, sustainable, elegant home in the woods of Portneuf, Quebec, and how they can help others do the same.

VIDEO: Olafur Eliasson's Solar "Little Sun" LED Lamp Lights Up Lives Around the World

Artist Olafur Eliasson explores the importance of turning artistic potential into environmental action in this inspiring video created by VICE for The Creators Project. Eliasson discusses his Little Sun – a solar-powered LED lamp that can run for up to 5 hours on a single charge. One in every five people on the planet has no access to electricity, so Eliasson sought to harness solar energy in a creative lamp that provides an affordable and sustainable light source for all. Check out the video above!

INTERVIEW: HOK's Bill Odell on the Design of Saudi Arabia's KAUST University, the World's Largest LEED Platinum Project

Opened late 2009, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia, has come to be Saudi Arabia’s first LEED certified project and the world’s largest LEED Platinum project. Designed by HOK, the university is a super sustainable learning institution dedicated to advancing science and technology with a fellowship program that provides full tuition to both male and female graduate and doctorate students. The campus was designed as part of a larger master plan (also designed by HOK) to support a new town of 12,000 people living in over 6.5 million sqf on a 3,200 acre space along the Red Sea. Sited in an environment facing extraordinary challenges, including an extremely hot, humid climate, HOK was asked to create a low-energy, sustainable project that would also provide the necessary facilities to support cutting edge research and education, and a comfortable place to live. What resulted was a spectacular campus, that while modern in design, also draws deeply upon the traditional architecture of Saudi Arabia to minimize its energy needs. Structured like a traditional Arabic city, the campus is compressed to minimize the amount of exterior envelope exposed to the sun and reduce outdoor walking distances. The project also utilizes everything from passively cooled circulation thoroughfares, solar towers, traditional Arabic ‘mashrabiya‘ screens, water reclamation able to capture 100% of the wastewater, and more. We recently sat down with HOK’s Bill Odell, architect and Director of HOK’s Science & Technology group, to talk about the design of KAUST. Read on for Bill’s fascinating story on how he and his global team at HOK were able to construct this top-notch, high-tech institution, and how the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) helped them turn out the world’s biggest sustainable project in just 28 months.

Green fashion already has a strong group of loyal followers, but how do we get the word out to a larger audience? We recently caught up with multi-platinum recording artist Will.i.am to see how he is using his influence and fashion expertise (did you know that he attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles before becoming a Black Eyed Pea?) to spread knowledge about the importance of sustainable fashion to the masses.

VIDEO: Procter & Gamble's Dirty Practices are Destroying the Forest and Making Orphans Out of Baby Orangutans

Many of you may be familiar with Procter & Gamble’s “Thank You, Mom” campaign, which features several cute tots learning how to walk, swim, and more. But there’s another, less than adorable side to P&G that they’ve worked hard to keep under wraps. After conducting a yearlong investigation, Greenpeace has revealed that P&G has been sourcing its palm oil (an ingredient used in shampoos and other health and household products) from plantations that have decimated the forests of Indonesia. What’s even more shocking is that the remains of multiple endangered orangutans have been found scattered throughout and just outside land owned by two major suppliers of the palm oil. Greenpeace recently released a video showing some of the damage that’s been done to the landscape and to the habitats of these endangered animals. Please take a moment to watch it above and share it with your family and friends. And if you’re one of the more than 5 billion people who use their products—which range from Pantene to Tide and Gillette—do consider boycotting P&G products for those that use sustainably harvested materials. You can also further urge the company to do the right thing by signing Greenpeace’s petition asking them to make their products ethically.

At a time when most college students are still trying to figure out how they want to make an impact on the world, 22-year-old Kacie Meyers is already building a business empire with Pal Hardwood, transforming discarded wooden pallets into well-designed products, and giving jobs to people with special needs. We recently had the privilege of chatting with the Johnson and Wales University graduate in Charlotte, North Carolina, during her public presentation as a college entrepreneur in ImpactU‘s business accelerator program. Check out our interview with this young social entrepreneur who is finding ways to use design as a catalyst to do good for individuals in need, as well as for the planet.
