Brittny Badger is taking items from her friends junk drawers and creating order from their chaos. She also disassembles lots of appliances. Given the opportunity I could probably organize stuff like this for hours, so Brittny please let me know if you need an assistant. (via coudal)

Recycling the posts of Venice

Entries by David Chipperfield and Paola Navone for the “Tra le Briccole di Venezia” (“Among the posts in Venice”) exhibition that explores ways to recycle the massive oak posts used to dock gondolas.

The so called “briccole”, the posts in chestnut oak on which Venice is built, are used for docking gondolas and as beacons. They are at least ten meters (32.8 feet) high and once driven into the lagoon, they have an average life not longer than 5-10 years. Their section affected by tide rise and fall becomes the natural home for microorganisms as well as sea flora and fauna, but once corroded, they are completely replaced.

Many more ideas in their unfortunately usability-lacking site. (via cielbleu)
