Turning Bridge-Building Sideways

In 1978, SOM architect Myron Goldsmith and engineer T.Y. Lin created a remarkable structure to span the challenging middle fork of California’s American River. Ruck-A-Chucky Bridge elegantly solves the problem of building a stable, economical structure across a wide, steep gorge by entirely rethinking the principles of bridge-building. A “hanging arc,” the bridge was to be suspended by 80 high-strength cables and balanced by tensile forces. Though unbuilt, Ruck-A-Chucky Bridge stands as a masterwork of innovative design and structural economy to this day. Learn more

The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (DutchKoninklijke Serres van LakenFrenchSerres Royales de Laeken), are a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Palace of Laeken in the north of Brussels. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.

The complex was commissioned by King Leopold II and designed by Alphonse Balat. Built between 1874 and 1895, the complex was finished with the completion of the so-called “Iron Church”, a domed greenhouse that would originally serve as the royal chapel. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.

The complex can only be visited during a two-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom.

After the Apocalypse: High Art in a Dark Future

In their “Apocalypse in Art" series, Ukrainian artists Vitaliy and Elena Vasilieva envision the world’s current citadels of art under siege. In a future desolated by environmental disaster, the familiar forms of our cultural landmarks stand out in sharp relief: the New Museum's stacked blocks in a flooded landscape, the Guggenheim's helical galleries nestled among the sand dunes, and the Pompidou Center's exposed infrastructure lit up in a lightning storm. By placing cultural landmarks in imagined post-apocalyptic world, the artists raise questions about the longevity and role of art and the relationship between environment and our cultural artifacts. Even in an apocalyptic future, art lives on, a testament to the power of cultural creation. Indeed, the series suggests that if culture is harnessed to transform how we view and treat the environment, such an end might be averted.

would be cool if tumblr had an option to see reblogged posts in the tags as well, with no posts from the same source appearing more than once so it’s not just spam

that, and a managable way to search and view liked posts, i’ve been here three years and can’t believe i’m still manually roblogging them to a seperate blog
