Haus der Waldeulen, Wolfurt, Austria by Riegger Bär Architekten

Die Waldeulen sind ein Verein zur Förderung der Wald- und Erlebnispädagogik. Der Spielraum Wald dient dabei als ganzheitliche Wahrnehmungsförderung und Sinnesschulung sowie intensive Bewegungserfahrungen in der Natur. Märchenhafte und fantasieanregende Spielmöglichkeiten durch spielerisches Lernen von ökologischen Zusammenhängen. Um dieses Angebot durchgängig d.h. auch bei sehr schlechter Witterung anbieten zu können, ist es erforderlich den Spielraum „Wald“ durch eine Schutzhütte zu ergänzen, in welcher Kinder und Erzieher bei sehr schlechten (nassen/kalten) Witterungsbedingungen Schutz und Aufenthaltsmöglichkeit finden. Die Schutzhütte, der sog. „Waldsetzkasten“ ist als ein von aussen offenes Regal geplant. Die umlaufenden Regalflächen dienen den Kindern z.B. als Aufbewahrungsort ihrer Waldfundstücke, als Insektenhotel oder gar als Futterstelle für die Waldbewohner. Im inneren beherbergt der „Waldsetzkasten“ einen geschlossenen Raum der in den oben beschriebenen Fällen zum Aufwärmen und zum Jausen dient. Vorgelagert zu diesem Bereich befindet sich ein offener, jedoch gedeckter Unterschlupf.

What do you call someone who is obsessed with the moon

a lunatic

only astronauts will get this ;)





Gaston really is the most terrifying Disney villain because he could be anyone in the world.

Later he convinces the whole town to set up his wedding with the knowledge that the would-be bride would be thrown into it. Everyone finds his creepy-ass tactics as cute and “boys will be boys” esque. So yeah, he is terrifying.

Yeah, the truly scary thing about Beauty and the Beast isn’t that Gaston exists, but that society fucking loves him. People who deride the movie by saying it’s about Stockholm Syndrome are ignoring that it’s actually about the various ways that truly decent people get othered by society. People don’t trust the Beast because of the way he looks, which only feeds his anger issues and pushes him further away. Gaston isn’t the only one who criticizes Belle for being bookish, either; the whole town says there must be something wrong with her. And her father gets carted off to a mental asylum for being just a little eccentric.

Howard Ashman, who collaborated on the film’s score and had a huge influence on the movie’s story and themes, was a gay man who died of AIDS shortly after work on the film was completed. If you watch the film with that in mind, the message of it becomes clear. Gaston demonstrates that bullies are rewarded and beloved by society as long as they possess a certain set of characteristics, while nice people who don’t are ostracized. The love story between Belle and the Beast is about them finding solace in each other after society rejects them both.

Notice how the Beast reacts when the whole town comes for him. He’s not angry, he’s sad. He’s tired. And he almost gives up because he has nothing to live for. But then he sees that Belle has come back for him, and suddenly he does. In the original fairy tale, the Beast asks Belle to marry him every night, and the spell is broken when she accepts. In the Disney movie, he waits for her to love him, because he cannot love himself. That’s how badly being ostracized from society and told that you’re a monster all your life can fuck with your head and make you stop seeing yourself as human.

Society rewards the bullies because we’ve been brought up to believe that their victims don’t belong. That if someone doesn’t fit in, then they have to be put in their place, or destroyed. And this movie demonstrates that this line of thinking is wrong. It’s so much deeper than a standard “be yourself” message, and that’s why it’s one of my favorite Disney movies.

I also thought it was important to demonstrate the value of full scale iteration in architectural education. There are too many architecture students who don’t understand basic physical limitations of materials or how they can be joined. This project was a way to show how building a small structure with simple detailing can be more valuable than drawing a complex project that is theoretical and poorly understood. I think we need more making in architecture!”

I want to live here.

You know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that in book stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor

I’m going to reblog this until it’s a cultural norm.

Lets do it

plus less chance of drugs being slipped into your book
