Now it’s just a question of convincing his collaborators that sharing an office is worth the price (which isn’t out of line with similar, albeit less curated spaces). The first invitations were dispatched a few weeks ago, “and in an ideal scenario, we’re hand-picking them from a very deep pool–the people we collaborate with now, and new talent as well,” Benshetrit says. “Either a few hundred, or maybe even a thousand people will say ‘I want to be part of it.’ We don’t know what deck of cards from which we will get to choose.” … [Read more...] about Dror Benshetrit Opens A Shared Office For Hand-Picked Creatives

GoPro is also developing a variety of short-form narrative shows on its YouTube channel, some of them only available on a subscription basis. Sitting at the nexus of social media and high-resolution video has meant that GoPro was, from the start, an entertainment brand as well as a consumer electronics manufacturer, and the company continues to use this to its advantage. (Perhaps only Red Bull has been as successful at marketing itself through creating and distributing action-sports footage.) The GoPro Awards program, which flows free product and massive publicity to amateur GoPro users, has been a successful adjunct to sponsoring athletes, who typically create the best and most-watched videos. Now the company is looking to do even more, by partnering with the likes of soccer team Real Madrid and Moto GP superstar Valentino Rossi and developing original programming set to debut the end of 2017. “We drive revenue in a number of ways,” says Ocean MacAdams, vice president of … [Read more...] about Can GoPro Rise Again?
One challenge is extreme heat. “Our research has shown that between now and the middle of the century, the frequency of days with extreme heat is projected to increase pretty steeply,” says Kristy Dahl, a senior climate scientist at the nonprofit Union of Concerned Scientists. In Miami, for example, until recently, there were around 16 days a year that felt hotter than 100°. By the middle of the century, that could jump to 114 days a year. Heat can take out infrastructure. Last year, a highway near St. Louis buckled because of high temperatures, and train tracks warped during a record-setting heat wave in San Francisco. … [Read more...] about We’re on track to hit 1.5°C of warming in 2040.

Ibrahim illustrates his point with a project Portland designed–the commercial areas of the Nice/Cote d’Azur Airport in Nice, France. “They represent the essence of the Cote d’Azur, and create a synergistic feeling through the incorporation of lots of greenery, images of the beach, and restaurants designed to emulate a seaside dining experience,” he says. Another example? Changi Airport in Singapore, which Ibrahim sees as the very best of its class. “Its design is fundamentally human and beautiful, incorporating sensory experiences like butterfly gardens, plant gardens, and swimming pools for travelers,” he says. This kind of humane, calming design could turn JFK into an airport on par with both. … [Read more...] about The Airports That Architects Want To Redesign The Most
