Inhabitat is a weblog devoted to the future of design that carries some very interesting articles. Their focus is upon tracking innovations in design, materials and practices that are pushing architecture and home design towards a more sustainable future.
The site is well worth a browse, offering sections on technology and energy that cover a vast array of topics of interest to Foundation readers, from renewable energy to architectural design and beyond.
The renewable energy section for example carries a series of articles that follow the development of Kite powered ships. SkySails, one of the companies producing these kites claim that their use can cut down fuel consumption by up to 30% and have a positive effect on Co2 production.
In a variation on the kite theme the site also carries a report about developments in rigid sail technology, able to produce power not only from the wind but also using solar cells.
The site also carries an array of articles addressing various issues around nanotechnology, and the products section is brimming with interesting things to spend your hard earned cash on.
The Inhabitat mission ‘Green design is good design and good design is green design’ and logo ‘Design Will Save The World’ are bold statements that are worthy of pondering and developing.
