Fantastische paviljoens van Rintala Eggertsson Architects aan de Noorse kust bij Sandhornøya. De paviljoens zijn gemaakt in het kader van het reizend arctische SALT Festival, dat in verschillende landen rond de Noordpool gehouden wordt.

"SALT begins its journey upon an Arctic beach on the mountainous island of Sandhornøya, south of Bodø, Northern Norway, 29th August 2014 until 6th September 2015. Here, at this remote location, surrounded by breath-taking nature, visitors can discover a place to engage the mind, body and soul. SALT will over the coming years travel across the northernmost part of our planet, making a home in Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Ireland, Scotland, Spitsbergen, Alaska and Russia. SALT is an ambitious and inspiring concept designed to stir the imagination. Like nothing that has come before, it will also leave no physical trace. SALT is an initiative for arts, culture and environment that will each year move to a new location in the Arctic. SALT uses the Arctic nature as a framework for strong arts and cultural experiences.”

RESEARCH LABORATORY

Groningen, Netherlands, 2003–2008

The facade isconstructed from flat, vertical aluminum slats, which, in places, are twisted outwards in bowed forms. Tall, vertical undulations are generated, which present an open or a closed aspect depending on the angle under which they are viewed.

On the lower level the colour yellow is used, which gradually changes to green towards the top of the building.

In the interior, two internal vertical voids allow daylight to enter the interior functioning as a form of internal facade. The two voids have the geometry of asymmetrical truncated cones which mirror each other vertically. Shared walkways surround these internal voids, creating a clear organisation whereby dark corridor systems can be avoided.On the ground floor, where daylight is at its lowest, yellow is used. Per floor this colour then deepens through to orange and finally to red on the uppermost level.

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case
