Message in a Bottle
BY NINA LESIGA
@ VOL 1
ON OCT 12, 2015
Nina Lesiga’s passion is the use travel as a source of empowerment and self discovery. Her passion for beach combing has led her to collect all sorts of items washed up upon the shore near home and during her travels. Each piece that Nina picked up “called” to her and she didn’t worry about what to do with it. Then one day during a solitary walk on the beach, she found a message in a bottle. In an instant she knew what to do - she would pay the happiness forward and this decision began a chain of magical connections amongst strangers.
How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature
BY NICHOLAS RAJKOVICH
@ VOL 16
ON APR 14, 2016
"How do we start thinking about heat waves and why are heat waves so important?"
In How One Man on a 75-Pound Bicycle Took a City's Temperature from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, architect and University at Buffalo Professor, Nicholas B. Rajkovich describes the design of a bicycle-based weather station used to find the “hot spots” of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Every year in the United States, more people die from heat waves than any other type of natural disaster. Extreme heat events are expected to increase in the future due to climate change. Collecting a fine scale of microclimatic data can help to determine how physical characteristics contribute to human exposure to ground and air temperatures. These data also suggest how urban design strategies can reduce the impacts of the urban heat island effect. However, microclimate measurement poses substantial challenges. Rajkovich’s work investigates the intersection of energy efficient buildings, renewable energy, and climate change resilience.
