              Kamal Meattle: How to grow fresh air | TED Kamal Meattle was told by his doctors that he would have to leave New Delhi, one of the cities with the world’s dirtiest air, to save his lungs and health. Instead of fleeing his home, he consulted a 1989 study by NASA before developing a unique tactic for cleaning the air of his office building: a greenhouse containing hundreds of common household plants, including money plant, areca palm and mother-in-law’s tongue.

              How To Build Your Own Living Structures by Ken Isaacs

              How To Build Your Own Living Structures is an out-of-print manual (PDF available here) by Ken Isaacs, who is known for an architectural career of radically deconstructing conventional notions of modernism. The DIY guide consists of a series of his Living Structures, all hand-made and affordable furniture and architectural units, that provide multifunctional use which challenged the way people work and live within their own homes and environments. The spatial requirements for the Living Structures are that they are larger than furniture yet smaller than architecture.

              “Put traditional, separate pieces of furniture in a tiny shelter and you have a shack, uncleanable, crowded and impossible to live in. The old ideas of furniture have always interfered with the development of truly compact, ecologically correct homes." – Ken Isaacs
