Something I’ve wanted to post for weeks now.  ”Carta Marina” dates from 1555— it’s Scandinavia seen through the eyes of a Swedish ex-pat named Olaus Magnus.  I love the color, the composition, and the level of detail, especially as regards sea monsters.

FRACKPOOL: The Legacy of Hydraulic Fracturing in Blackpool
Jason Lamb / M.Arch / The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL / Advisors: CJ Lim and Bernd Felsinger / July 2014
Constructing Bloomfield Fracking Station 8 of 35
Chinese investment prompts the transitory integration of hydraulic fracturing within Blackpool, for the exploitation of shale gas. An unconventional approach towards hydraulic fracturing instigates urban regeneration and provides a framework which cultivates new industries, generates sustainable water systems and induces renewable methods of energy production. Thirty-five fracking stations are integrated and a sustainable offshore community is constructed to offset effected communities. During fracking the station serves as a platform from which shale gas can be extracted, processed and distributed. Over an 80 year timespan, the project speculates the transformation of Blackpool from an industrial Petropolis, to a less resource dependent and decentralized sustainable city. Industrial infrastructure once used for hydraulic fracturing is re-purposed to process energy crops and grey-water from the region. As a method of urban regeneration, the legacy plan aims to enhance socio-economic and well-being opportunities for communities in Blackpool.
