We got a nice set of clamps of different kinds from Bessey, the world leading company for clamps and all kind of fasteners. Thats a nice addition to our existing ones.
Thanks to Bessey for this kind support.
every now and then we receive mindblowing contents about concepts and newest inventions. This time we received a link to a sunshade from Wouter a former student from us. Hey what a cool concept, but its a rendering and the time the louvers start flipping outwards raised directly questions we have to ask every day in our studio...what about wind loads, what about the forces on the axles and do you really think you are able to control each of the flaps individually...
Never the less a great looking proposal, still questionable but maybe some time we are able to build it in reality ...
One of our colleagues Koen Mulder is busy with research about masonry patterns, he was already supported by a national subsidies, now he would like to finish his work with an interesting book about this topic. To make this possible, Koen is asking for a crowd funding - order the book today, get in in 2015
We have to mention that the book will be in dutch first, but who knows an english version may follow.
