I just want to be clean when the work is done, and don my ubiquitous Spandex jacket.

Floating pool, so the swimming pool is in fact swimming.  Will it pee in the river as it swims like those in the pool?

The floating pool idea seems like a good one.

Yeah no. How about we simply focus on allowing form to follow function and not get crazy with inefficient designs.

Quite simply, we need to make Passive House a building standard for all small buildings & offices - and/or make them meet the  Living Building Challenge.

Considering we can design and build an office in Seattle that can supply all of it's energy from solar panels, collect and treat it's own rainwater and not require a single connection to the outside grid, plus it's designed to last 250 years - I think it's about time to do the same with other new buildings.

I liked the clean skies in the last one pictured in Beijing, now that there is a science fictional fantasy.

The Ant Farm architects / artists did portable inflatables in the early 1970s.

(They also did, more famously, the Cadillac Ranch a few years later.)

The future sounds stupid. I've been casting about for some hobbies lately and I guess one of them will have to be smoking.

In the interim, I shall be living in a poorly constructed lean-to somewhere in the north west. Please alert me when this is over via an instasquirrel message addressed to Ka­m­ek­o­oz­ie[nospam-﹫-backwards]ka­og­i­b­eht­*com

When you make form follow function you end up with Soviet concrete blocks. There needs to be room for creativity.
