Wired did a great docu about a huge solar powered energy plant that stores the heat in molten salt. We heard about this earlier, but the size of the mirrors / heliostats is really amazing. Have a look, next to this there is also a second video on youtube.
In his series, Behind a Little House, Manuel Cosentino transforms a tiny little house on a simple hill into a series of dramatically majestic landscapes. For two years, the Italian photographer documented the same location, capturing the house set against the changing light and weather throughout the years.
for the 7th time the facade symposium was organised in Detmold Germany, the Detmolder Schule for Architecture who is also running the facade master program was able to handpick a very interesting set of lectures following the topic Design vs Development. With lectures from architects, industry and consultants within the facade business the whole day was running fast and delivered a nice set of discussions.
An incredible steel structure integrated in the roof of the historical exhibition building of the K21 / Dusseldorf ….and incredible experience to climb the net is a height of 20 m! Make sure, you feel well when entering.
Exhibition is open till autumn 2014 – worth a trip!
When the superheroes meet in a comic book its called “crossover”…We decided to do a crossover with Festool and Hettich to learn something about the products of Hettich and what is the best occasion to learn something ? Yes build something …so next to a very interesting introduction from Hettich in festools headquater in the Netherlands we build also our 6th bucky lab flightcase, our Heco Box. We got Heco Schrauben as a partner for the bucky lab already a time ago and they were so generous to send us every screw they made …and what do you do with these ….bucky lab style neatly organized in our Raaco Boxxers, but how to travel with these heavy set of screws …So the old shopping kart was not the best solution and we have now a perfectly shaped box which houses the assortment of Heco. The last finishing touches still missing but the build of the box was a big success, having 5 trainers from festool and the expert from hettich with their hand on the box to make these smooth running multiple drawer organizing box.
We cant wait to see the box in action, to get a short impression of the day have a look, we made a video.
Thanks to Festool, Hettich and Heco and also Raaco for their great support!

The Imagine blog is supported by the Imagine Group which is a network of teachers and constructors – of builders, structural planners and climate designers. The group sees itself as a merger of educational, research and planning institutions working on conceptual and experimental solutions for structural and climate-related challenges.
Imagine Group’s concept is to network the knowledge base according to the tasks and challenges at hand, to provide technical solutions for esthetic and constructive issues. This type of networked collaboration without large, locally fixed hierarchies enables an interdisciplinary, yet topic-related working method that is efficient and – just as important – fun.
You are welcome to enjoy our blog that will include not only our concepts, ideas, news and thoughts but will also offer inspiring topics as well as pictures for your own creative work.
