How the workplace is changing

A recent study by real estate consultancy CBRE shows that by 2030, the standard-issue office with rows and rows of desks could be a thing of the past as corporates will increasingly be shaping their offices to create what is called a "high performance workplace".

Peter Andrew, Director of Workplace Strategy Asia at CBRE, discusses how pioneering companies are increasing looking to change the way the office environment looks and functions.

Polaroid Cube

New challenger active-technology by retro photography brand Polaroid hits the streets. Introducing The Cube. Read more.

Polaroid Cube

I love this fun new bit released technology by retro photography brand Polaroid. Want.

The Polaroid Cube, a tiny, cute HD action-video camera, is now available for pre-order on its website—it will debut in October 2014 with a full range of accessories and mounts. 

Priced at only US$99, it may offer a viable alternative to the popular GoPro, which costs two to four times as much—according to Polaroid CEO Scott Hardy, the Cube is not targeting the “the professional and amateur and aspirational thrill-seekers but going after more of the lifestyle segments”. 

Although it is small—measuring at just 35mm—this latest product from Polaroid is highly competent as a tool for documenting one’s life in a fun, convenient way. 

Other than being weatherproof, shockproof and mountable, it is also very easy to use with a single button on its top—press once to capture a still image, and twice for video.

THERE wins NSW tender with Property Agents McGrath

We are pleased to anounce that THERE have ben appointed along with Property Agent heavy-weights McGrath, to with the positioning and strategic marketing campaign for a brand new land release by Ku-ring-gai Council

The site, owned jointly by Council and the NSW Department of Planning, was previously part of the planned B2 road corridor to link the F3 and M2 motorways. This option was abandoned by the then state government in 1996.

Work has begun on a 26 lot residential land subdivision in South Turramurra - a rare opportunity to purchase new residential land in Ku-ring-gai.

Through THERE facilating a naming evaluation process and criteria, the site has been determined as Turramurra Way.

Nestled within one of Sydney's premier Garden and National Park suburbs… Turramurra Way is a limited land offer that represents the final piece in the beautiful suburb South Turramurra.

A limited number of generous single dwelling land lots are being released for the first time, fully serviced and ready-to-build on. Situated  in a leafy, sought-after pocket, that combines lifestyle, established community, connectivity and comprehensive amenity. South Turramurra offers a family-friendly neighbourhood set amongst some of Ku-ring-gai's most peaceful pocket.

THERE has been commissioned to produce the brand campagn and strategy, local area and lifestyle  image creation, tone of voice copywriting, brochure design, website, print ads, onsite sales display and much more.

The site is being auctioned on November 1 - so watch this space in the coming weeks for the Brand campaign and collateral roll-out.

The hostel that fell to earth

A giant cube that appears to have landed on its side in the Slovakia's High mountain peaks sparks my two passions of skiing and architecture Read more.

The hostel that fell to earth

One of two passions in life are skiing and architectural. So when I saw this giant cube that appears to have landed on its side in the Slovakia's High Tatras peaks mountains I just had to investigate further…

 

This giant cube that appears to have landed on its side in the mountains is a proposal by Czech studio Atelier 8000 for a facilities building in Slovakia's High Tatras peaks

With the "succinct shape of a simple cube" that appears to have been dropped at random onto the snowy landscape, The design would create dining and accommodation for people trekking across Slovakia's highest mountain range.

According to the designers, the orientation of the structure would allow three sides of it to be visible from any given point around its perimeter.

Each of these surfaces would present a square grid, made up of photovoltaics, windows and aluminium panels, in an arrangement designed to generate as much solar energy as possible and minimise the building's carbon footprint.

"The glass surfaces of windows and photovoltaic panels along with the light transparency of the metal plating complete the whole picture of the site with a touch of glimmer – just like the glints and reflections which can be observed on the surface of a mountain lake or on thawing ice," said the designers.

Atelier 8000 developed the proposal for the Ke Marská Hut architectural competition, which asked applicants to design a building offering accommodation, a restaurant, a medical facility, skiing storage and a garage for a snowmobile.

The competition was won by others, so is now unlikely to make it off the drawing board - that said, it gets my vote. Love.

Meet the Trail Blazers. This is amazing. This is the future.

Curious by nature, I love all things digital and emerging technologies… and this is definately one to watch out for. Introducing Pixelstick - Light painting evolved, a kickstarter iniatiave.

What is it? Designed by Brookyln-based BitBanger Labs, the Pixelstick is a fancy new gadget for creating long-exposure light paintings.

How does it work? The device reads digital images created in Photoshop (or any other editor) and displays them one line at a time through an array of 198 full-color RGB LEDs. The images can be any height up to 198 pixels tall and many thousands of pixels wide creating huge possibilities for visual effects.

Where did it come from?  Pixelstick began as a proof of concept using an arduino and some off the shelf LED strips. It moved quickly into custom LED circuit boards, a more powerful ARM microcontroller and a sturdier design made of lightweight aluminum rather than plastic tubing. With the ability to control the density of the LED count while at the same time refining the custom aluminum extrusion, the current version of pixelstick began to take shape.

Early controller prototypes were bare circuit boards, followed by a rather quaint wooden handbox (which we still quite like), and eventually on to higher and higher fidelity 3d printed enclosures. Each iteration performed better and was tweaked as we logged more hours with the pixelstick.

 

What next? We are investigating its usability in our THERE studio's own image making. It's one small step-forward for pixel imagery, one huge unique leap-forward for image creators.
