Call for Sustainability: Shape of Victorian House Filled with Oil Barrels

advertise here

We really appreciate those designers who struggle to create not just luxurious projects that would attract and sell, but create statements of major concern for people worldwide. We consider this idea to fit the profile above. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimated the oil amount that is being dropped daily in the Gulf of Mexico: 5,000 barrels. Hullet Jones of the San Francisco firm Jones | Haydu came up with a way to illustrate just how much this means. He did the Math and figured out that 10,000 barrels of oil (aka the spillage of oil in two days) could fill up a Victorian home in San Francisco. We will say no more and let you think about the implications. However, we would love to know where you stand regarding this project.-via Inhabitat
