Share Your World – 2014 Week 27
If you were the architect of one existing building, which building would you select?
Stackable Solar Skyscraper, Mexico City
Nearly every level of the massive, airy Vertical Park design for Mexico City by Jorge Hernandez de la Garza contains solar panels to harvest all the sun it needs to provide power for homes, offices and recreation space. The stackable design allows expansion and even relocation as necessary, adding more sky gardens and urban farms.
What is one of your favorite quotes?
“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
― Max Ehrmann, Desiderata: A Poem for a Way of Life
What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
Browns and Oranges go best with my complexion, but I’m most comfortable wearing blue.
What is something you learned in the last week?
Actually, I learned it just a few minutes ago while searching for famous solar buildings. The White House now has solar panels installed on it’s roof.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week, I was grateful to have my family from Kentucky come down to visit for the 4th of July Holiday weekend.
This week I’m looking forward to helping with my youngest grandson’s 1st Birthday Portraits and taking my oldest grandson to the splash pad.
