Ventilation in a pot



I did an illustration for KOTE #5, following the article “Ventilasjonsanlegg på potte” (“ventilation in a pot”) by Ingunn C. Hvidsten. The article is about the health benefits of indoor plants. See the TED-talk by Kamal Meattle that inspired the article here.

SketchUp – Favorite plugins for Landscape Architecture

We have been using Trimble SketchUp quite extensively as of late.

  • Tett, tettere, tetteste! Det finnes håp? - VOL. 2
    I del 1 så vi at hytteutbyggingen og hyttekulturen står i fare. Vi må tenke nytt. Men hva om nytenkningen og alternativene allerede finnes?
  • Tett, Tettere, tetteste! Bygd, by, hyttefelt på fjellet - vol. 1
    FN sier at menneske aktiviteter som å bygge ut på verdifull areal kan utrydde opp mot 1 million arter. Betyr dette at vi nordmenn må gi opp hyttedrømmen?
