‘BubbleDeck’ Technology at Harvey Mudd College / MATT Construction via arch daily
MATT Construction is utilizing an innovative new slab technology called BubbleDeck, which replaces a significant percentage of a slab’s concrete mass with hollow or foam-filled plastic balls, made from recycled plastic material. The Teaching and Learning Building at Harvey Mudd College (HMC), designed by Boora Architects with structural engineering provided by kpff, will be the first above-ground building in the United States to employ the technology. HMC has enthusiastically embraced this project on their campus.

I know lots of you tube videos of these guys already exist, but I couldn’t help but make my own version.

Delicious results, a whole tray eaten in seconds.

Photos from my first stop on my Asia Adventure. 

Seoul was fantastic, I would even consider living there one day. From the metro, so the fantastic food, to just being in a city that is buzzing with people and activities 24 hours a day (well, except for the really early morning, I think everyone stays out too late - which is AWESOME) in almost every neighbourhood on every street. 

If only so I could have access to all the Tapoki I could ever dream of eating.

Off to Bangkok!

Off to Bangkok!

Seoul, Korea

I’ve been in Seoul since last Wednesday. Minus a couple of days where we bullet trained down south for some rain and lots of temples. Been a really great visit here, so many ridiculously large meals, spice, baked goods for breakfast (Paris Baguette - Korean bakery chain), coffee (we counted 10 different coffee shops in 3 blocks), and an incredibly integrated subway that goes everywhere.

Highlights:
- palaces
- Everland amusement park - the biggest scariest wooden roller coaster I’ve ever been on
- bullet trains
- rain, so much rain
- more palaces
- Buddhist sanctuaries and pagodas
- Buddhist grotto in the mountain
- so much fog
- giant bell ringing competition
- strange couples hotel
- a bathhouse
- sleeping on the floor at the bathhouse
- Namsan tower - locks of love (yup we put one on)
- green tea soft serve
- hard beds feeling softer after sleeping on the floor
