Bamboo, one of the most sustainable building materials in the world, can grow up to four feet in a single day and combines strength and flexibility. It is affordable and abundant and, in the case of equatorial states, can be locally sourced. Andrew Ma’s tent combines bamboo with other organic materials. The only non-organic materials used during construction were plastic ropes that hold bamboo poles together.
The building was commissioned by The Green School in Bali, whose campus is made entirely from sustainably harvested bamboo. The building was used for the graduation ceremony and the Conservation Conference Weekend that featured Dr. Jane Goodall as their honorary speaker. They were looking to build a structure that could accommodate 500 people and would not destroy the site. The structure comprised multiple teepee tents connected with structural poles to ensure additional anchoring support. In order to prevent lateral movements, 15cm diameter reject bamboo poles were cut in quarters at a 50cm length and anchored down on the ends and the sides of each bamboo pole. Except for a few large poles, which were brought in from Java, most of the resources were sourced locally.

After 13 seasons with Nike, Manchester United have just announced a new £70 million-a-year with adidas. This is more than double the amount the historic club currently receives from Nike, beating off U.S. competitors such as Warrior and Under Armour. The staggering £750m GBP deal is also underlined by a recently-unveiled partnership with American auto manufacturer Chevrolet, thereby ushering in a substantially revitalizing revenue stream for the club. The deal will start for the ’15-’16 season as Nike’s will continue for one more campaign. Details about the length of the contract are not known yet but it will be a boost for United as they aim to bounce back to the former glory days, after failing to qualify for this season’s Champions League. Keep checking back as more details come through.
Princess Juliana International Airport (IATA: SXM, ICAO: TNCM) (also known as Saint Maarten International Airport) serves the Dutch part of the island of Saint Martin. The airport serves as a hub for Windward Islands Airways and is the major gateway for the smaller Leeward Islands, including Anguilla, Saba, St. Barthélemy and St. Eustatius. It is named after Juliana of the Netherlands, who as crown princess landed here in 1944, the year after the airport opened. There is also an airport on the French side of the island, called Aéroport de Grand Case or L'Espérance Airport. The airport is perhaps best known for very low-altitude flyover landing approaches due to one end of its runway being extremely close to the shore and Maho Beach. Check A few cool landing videos below
