I always wondered if the louvers on my POD Hotel project would actually look decent, or even work. Danny Libeskind has a new project in Germany that is not too far off from the facade idea, and the louvers actually look pretty good. In fact, I even like the project, although it looks like the cool "green balconies" got axed. Still, POD hotel would look way cooler...
3D printed camera! Hopefully Noah will take his makerbots for a spin and we can make a couple. Plans here.
