    First Vertical Forest In Asia To Have Over 3,000 Plants And Turns CO2 Into 132 Pounds Of Oxygen Per Day

    First Vertical Forest In Asia To Have Over 3,000 Plants And Turns CO2 Into 132 Pounds Of Oxygen Per Day

    It’s a good job that these vertical forests in Nanjing, China are going to produce 132 pounds (60kg) of oxygen every day, because they’ll literally take your breath away when you see them.
    They’re called the Nanjing Towers, and once they’re complete in 2018 they’ll be Asia’s first ever vertical forests. Designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, each tower will stand 656ft and 354ft respectively, and between them they’ll house over 1,000 trees and approximately 2,500 shrubs from 23 different local species. The taller tower will contain offices, a museum, a green architecture school and a rooftop club, while the smaller tower will house a rooftop pool and a 247-room Hyatt hotel. Balconies will afford visitors stunning views of the dizzying vertical forests that are intended to help regenerate local biodiversity. These aren’t the first vertical forests that Stefano has designed however. Two have already been built in Milan and similar buildings have been planned for Lausanne, Switzerland. In an increasingly polluted world, these green designs are a real breath of fresh air.

    ‘Life Hacks’ So Crappy, They’re Hilarious

    ‘Life Hacks’ So Crappy, They’re Hilarious

    Creativity is often described as a process of coming up with original ideas that have value. And these ideas below sure are original… they just struggle with the value part.
    Internauts have gathered in a special sub-Reddit called /r/ShittyLifeProTips, where they share these ludicrous “life hacks,” which besides being hilarious, bring more of a negative value to those who would practice them.

    The absurdity is strong with the tips ranging from putting on a spiked vest to get some personal space on the subway, to eating your food with toothpaste to save time. But as hilarious as these are, make sure you don’t confuse them with actually useful life hacks… (h/t)

    Museum Of Bad Art Will Make You Wanna Unsee These Paintings

    Museum Of Bad Art Will Make You Wanna Unsee These Paintings

    The Museum Of Bad Art, also known as MOBA, is the first institution dedicated to bringing “the worst of art to the widest of audiences” in the world. Apparently, some art is just “too bad to ignore,” and American antique dealer Scott Wilson realized that after a particular find in the trash – ‘Lucy In The Field With Flowers’, a painting that is now considered a founding piece of the museum.
    Today, the museum boasts 3 galleries in Boston, Massachusetts area, with 600 pieces and up to 70 works of bad art in display at any particular time: “We are the world’s leading authority on bad art,” museum’s spokesperson told CBS. When asked how they distinguish bad art, the woman replied: “It’s like pornography, it’s hard to define, but I know it when I see it… You just look at it, and you’re, “wait, what?’

    But don’t get fooled if you think it’s easy to meet museum’s low standards – it’s a highly selective process, as they are not interested in kitsch, faked bad art or works that are just plain boring.

    The institution is proud to rescue art from the public waste system (trash bins, flea markets and such), and say that featured artists are happy their works get to be displayed. It’s still a way for them to connect and communicate with the audience.
