Tiger-Stone Machine Offers Time and Labor Efficient Alternative to Brick Laying 

Brick roads are beautiful and durable, but due to the effort it takes to produce them, they are often overlooked as a time efficient option. What once was a labor-intensive, back-breaking job has now become a snap with this automatic Dutch paver laying machine, called the Tiger-Stone. The device rolls out a beautiful and sustainable hardscape, creating an instant road anywhere it travels. While the process may look magical, the secret lies in a smartly designed gravity-based system.

A-cero Architects Design Sleek Sofa for Sancal

Spanish Architecture firm A-cero has consistently produced innovative and beautiful architecture for the modern age. Headquartered on the outskirts of Madrid, A-cero is headed by Joaquin Torres, and was established in 1996. Fifteen years later, the firm has four global offices and a new furniture collaboration with Sancal.

The name of their design is Ace, and it transfers over much of the architectural modernism seen in A-cero’s buildings. There are clean lines and soft edges, but Ace is most similar to A-cero’s distinctive modular style.

L.A. County Dedicates First Green Library

Whittier is now home to Los Angeles County's first green library, which was dedicated last week and opened at the beginning of October. The Sorensen Library received a LEED silver rating. It is made entirely of steel and 40% recycled materials. The roof reduces heat gain, and the interior lighting is engineered to only turn on when natural light is insufficient. Even the parking lot is built to minimize environmental impact - it absorbs rainwater in order to reduce the toxins in Santa Monica Bay. The library is part of the County’s Sustainable Design Implementation program.
