Wildside – A Book About Those Who Chose Nature

It’s almost as hard to succinctly define the book Wildside: The Enchanted Life of Hunters and Gatherers as it is to summarize the kind of people you will meet in its pages.

We’ll start with the book, though. Wildside, published in 2016 by the Berlin-based publishing and creative agency Gestalten (or, more formally, Die Gestalten Verlag), is similar to many of the other artistic volumes the company has released over the past few decades in that design plays as big a role as content.

Swedish University Students Design Modern Solar-Powered Home (PHOTOS)

Team Sweden, consisting of 25 students from Chalmers University, recently developed this environmentally-friendly group house that is powered entirely by the sun. Halo is a sustainable living concept that began as a rough sketch and eventually emerged into a full-scale, functioning building.

The 645-square-foot circular design was intended to foster group living by providing smaller private rooms and larger amounts of shared communal space throughout the home. The team’s motto for the project was, “Shared space is double space.”

The contemporary concept was constructed with renewable materials, including Swedish spruce used to form the main structure, and wood fiber used for interior insulation. Solar cells compose the large exterior roof and absorb solar power to create an energy-efficient living space.

As a result of the team’s innovative ideas and dedication to the project, the building concept won third place in the international student competition, Solar Decathlon, earlier this year.




Four killed in car explosion in Sweden

Cause of blast on roundabout in Gothenburg is unclear, but police open criminal investigation

Four people, including a young girl, have been killed after a car exploded on a roundabout in Sweden’s second city of Gothenburg, police say.

The cause of Friday’s explosion was unclear, but police said they had started a criminal investigation.

Few details were initially released, but police confirmed on Saturday that three people had been pronounced dead at the scene. The girl was taken to hospital where she later died.

The victims’ ages and identities were not given.

Rescuers said the car had exploded on a roundabout near a fire station and was destroyed by the time they arrived.

Gothenburg has been experiencing a surge in violent conflict between rival criminal gangs, including a restaurant shooting in March that left two people dead.
