I want a Sun Hive! What is it? A “new” design for an apicentric hive — one that focuses first on the health of pollinators, and second on honey production. 
I will not get around to building one any time soon, but here are free instructions for constructing your own Sun Hive. Via.

“Arguably literature’s basic charge is to describe being in the world—the Grainger catalog reveals just how extensively our writers have failed to document the varieties of work happening now, and the hyper-precise terminology surrounding that work.”
Dan Piepenbring on the wonders of industrial-supply catalogs.
 Neat piece on the specificity of words and the specificity of tools, materials, and devices found in this mammoth catalog. This was a highlight, in his discussion of item descriptions:
"If ‘For sale: baby shoes, never worn’ counts as a story, then so, too, must ‘all-wood coffins store flat and assemble without tools. Can be stacked 3-high when assembled to maximize space in mass-casualty emergencies.’ Or: ‘High-visibility warning whips alert other vehicles of your presence.’ Or: ‘Stretch knit material covers head to protect from overspray.’

The Moses Bridge by RO&AD Architecten

When we traditionally think of a bridge, we imagine it spanning over the top of the water.The folks at RO&AD Architecten though have taken the concept and tweaked it a bit, instead putting the bridge in the water. Called The Moses Bridge, the bridge is made from Accoya wood, “a high technology wood that is supposedly harder and more durable than some of the best tropical woods. It is treated with a nontoxic anti-fungal coating.” The bridge actually leads to a 17th Century Dutch fort, and the water you’re seeing is a moat that surrounds the fort. All in all it’s a clever idea done rather well, so well in fact that they’re a finalist in the Dutch Design Awards.

This looks awesome but what if it were to rain heavily/flood? Whatever, I want to go to there.

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.
