Amazing colour images of 1940s London

theseyoungarchies:

London, 1940s, in hi-res color: These photographs were taken using Kodachrome film by Chalmers Butterfield, probably in 1949.

I would die to see London like this in person.

#London  #1940s

Check out this Agritecture bridge concept by Chetwoods architects that was the winning entry for the London Bridge competition!

Laurie Chetwood’s design for an inhabited London Bridge includes  solar-powered spires housing a self-sufficient hydroponic organic farm  and commercial centre taking advantage of renewable energy generation,  harvesting and efficient re-use of water, solar heating and natural  ventilation. The vertical farm acts as a cooling tower and powers a wind  turbine. Solar heated convection heats water, and EFTE provides a solar  PV skin for electricity generation.
