Buildings, bicyles and pallets


Building with pallets seems to be the new black and the always very readable Jetson Green highlights a marvellous exhibition by HDR Architecture called Unit Load_Redux which examines the use of pallets and underlines how wasteful we are in dealing with them by combining them with bicycles. Here's what Preston at JG says:
"Visitors can produce 125-200 watts while riding the bikes, which goes to power the LED lights illuminating the project at night. And when the exhibit is over, the pallets will go back to being used as pallets and the bikes will be donated away."
