King Hell Killer

Fantastische paviljoens van Rintala Eggertsson Architects aan de Noorse kust bij Sandhornøya. De paviljoens zijn gemaakt in het kader van het reizend arctische SALT Festival, dat in verschillende landen rond de Noordpool gehouden wordt.

"SALT begins its journey upon an Arctic beach on the mountainous island of Sandhornøya, south of Bodø, Northern Norway, 29th August 2014 until 6th September 2015. Here, at this remote location, surrounded by breath-taking nature, visitors can discover a place to engage the mind, body and soul. SALT will over the coming years travel across the northernmost part of our planet, making a home in Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Ireland, Scotland, Spitsbergen, Alaska and Russia. SALT is an ambitious and inspiring concept designed to stir the imagination. Like nothing that has come before, it will also leave no physical trace. SALT is an initiative for arts, culture and environment that will each year move to a new location in the Arctic. SALT uses the Arctic nature as a framework for strong arts and cultural experiences.”

Lake Cabin, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti | via

Erected within the same boundaries as the former 1970s cabin, which was lacking suitable insulation and infrastructure, the simple wooden structure offers an improved connection with the forested site. Wood was chosen as the most suitable building material because of the cabin’s environs and because the construction methods caused minimal disruption to the site.

"The lake is a holiday destination with timber construction already present in cottages and cabins," explained Nasadil. "We aimed at a lightweight building which would not embed itself in nature with concrete foundations, but was more sensitive."

The cabin is raised above the forest floor on steel screws that allow the sandy terrain to continue underneath. The use of prefabricated construction techniques also helped to reduce the build time for the project, which was limited by the harsh winter weather.

Components for the timber framework were laser cut and transported to the site, where they were assembled in just one and a half weeks. The client oversaw the rest of the building process over a period of ten months. Vertical larch battens cladding the cabin’s exterior reference the trunks of the surrounding pine trees and continue across the folding shutters, creating a sealed facade that protects the cabin when closed.

When fully opened, the shutters reveal a glazed wall that provides an expansive view of the lake. The glass surface is split into sections that slide open to connect the interior with a small decked space outside.

Imaging Energy with Infrared Thermography

Infrared thermography (IRT), or thermal imaging, utilizes cameras that can detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects above absolute zero, thermography makes it possible to see one’s environment even in the dark. In other words, thermography allows us to see the world as embodied energy. Thermal imaging has traditionally been reserved for applications like clinical diagnostics and military surveillance, but it has also come to be used for everything from Predator-vision and videos of Formula-1 race cars burning rubber to, most recently, iPhone camera add-ons. The technology raises the question of what other types of “energy imaging” might be possible in the near future, and whether these innovations can help us to more holistically understand our world as a highly dynamic and energetic place.
