Aquaduct by IDEO

Aquaduct by IDEO. this concept tricycle that purifies water as the rider pedals, at the Design Indaba conference in Cape Town last month. Called Aquaduct, it was developed to help people in the developing world who have to make long journeys to collect water, which is often unsafe to drink.The tricycle has a large water tank mounted over the rear axles. Pedalling draws water through a filter to a second, removable, tank mounted in front of the handlebars.

yesterday mike and carla went to go pick up donated recycled bike parts at Recycle-a-Bicycle‘s LIC warehouse.  there they met the program’s wonderful director, pasqualina, who’s really interested in finding new/other uses for bicycle parts. the organization is really exciting and they have a bunch of on-going community projects, from flower sculptures to youth bicycle classes, internships, volunteer opportunities, bike benefits, and basically everything and anything to do with bicycles. we think it’s really great that they’re interested in what we’re doing, just as much as we’re interested in what they’re doing, and we look forward to this and any other projects that might come from this happy union. thanks!!!

re.ison d’être

Red_iculous is an architectural proposal for a flood plain community on Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. after visiting sites in Cambodia, Vietnam, and China, it was abundantly clear that the bicycle played an integral role in modern asian society (not only a mode of transportation, but a material to be harnessed). This, alongside studies in plastic forming, site, water, mechanical connection, cycles, mobility, and deployability begin to converge upon a solution tailored to the people of the flood plain.
