Sam nurt powstał w połowie lat 90-tych ubiegłego wieku, jednak nazwa zaczęła funkcjonować dopiero po artykule New York Times w 2002 roku. Pomimo, iż nazwa miała raczej charakter prześmiewczy, szybko przyjęła się do obiegu i teraz funkcjonuje jako oficjalna nazwa tegoż nurtu.

Źródłem tego był jednak Jan Kaplický, brytyjski architekt czeskiego pochodzenia, który -wspólnie z Amandą Levete– zaprojektował słynny neo futurystyczny (i jakże charakterystyczny!) budynek Selfridges w Birmingham.

Budynek ten zbudowany jest na stalowej konstrukcji, użyto również betonu natryskowego, co pozwoliło zachować obły kształt budynku. Prócz kształtu, najbardziej charakterystycznym elementem sklepu Selfridges jest jego fasada. Ściany budynku zostały pokryte 15000 anodowanych aluminiowych dysków, umocowanych na niebieskim tle.

Choć sklep Selfridges jest częścią centrum handlowego Bullring, Selfridges miało się odróżnić od samego kompleksu, w związku z czym powstał projekt aluminiowej fasady.

Projekt ten zdobył wiele nagród, m.in. nagrodę Concrete Society, Structural Steel Awards 2004, Royal Fine Art Commission Trust, Retail Innovation 2004, Institution of Civil Engineers, Project Award Winner 2004 i inne.

W nurcie blobizmu powstało też wiele innych budynków, np. biblioteka filologiczna w Berlinie, która ma kształt mózgu; hala koncertowa i centrum muzyczne Sage Gateshead w Anglii, London City Hall, Złote Tarasy w Warszawie, czy zaprojektowany przez E.H Pavie Biomorphic House w Izraelu.

The warmth of aran sweaters https://ubuzzup.com/the-warmth-of-aran-sweaters/ https://ubuzzup.com/the-warmth-of-aran-sweaters/#respond Mon, 10 May 2021 14:03:23 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1719 Men’s Aran Sweaters is a truly special type of wool that is often passed down through families from generation to generation. The wool is generally taken from sheep of the Aran Islands – Ireland. A truly unique fabric as every wool fiber is different and has its own characteristics. This is why it’s so difficult to get a standard type that will fit a person – it’s not just because of the fibers, but because each person has their own body type and body shape. When you are getting an Aran sweater, it may seem like an item from the past, but once you try one on and notice the differences in how it fits your body, you’ll know it’s actually perfect forever.

The sweaters tend to go with a traditional colour scheme – light reds, blacks, browns, or navy blue – it’s all about the style. When getting a basic aran sweater, make sure you choose a design or style that goes well with most clothing you own.

The other way was to delve into the magical depths of your Mothers breeze block thick catalogue. It was like an early Amazon, just printed. It seemed to contain everything but the kitchen sink.

Why Buy TV Aerials? https://ubuzzup.com/why-buy-tv-aerials/ https://ubuzzup.com/why-buy-tv-aerials/#respond Wed, 05 May 2021 13:18:10 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1712 TV Aerials are one of the ways that you can get the channels and programs that you want to watch on your television set. TV aerials are not to be confused with traditional cable televisions or satellite televisions. The difference between these two forms of television technology is the number of channels that can be delivered with a TV aerial system. You will pay a monthly subscription fee in order to have access to a selection of TV channels that can be delivered to your television set in the way that you choose.

The most popular type of TV aerials are the freebie ones. A freeview TV aerial system delivers a selection of free-to-air channels to your TV set, but does not feature any regular television programming. Most people prefer this type of TV service because it provides them with all of the channels and programs that they love, at no extra charge to them. If you are looking for more television channels, you can purchase a satellite subscription from your local provider or you can search for satellite providers online and compare the ones that are available in your area.

TV aerials also come with a wide variety of extra features such as digital video recording (DVR), picture in picture (PIP), and HD Voice. A TV aerial unit that is capable of recording shows, movies, and music will have a better picture in picture and sound quality than one that does not have these extra features. Satellite TV services that offer the best possible picture in picture and sound will also provide you with more digital channels, which can also include high definition channels. If you are looking for the most premium quality picture and sound then you should consider an indoor aerials package. It is always best to get your aerial installed by a professional TV Aerials Swansea company like One Vision Tv Aerials as they will be able to discuss your needs and instal the right solution for you.

Benefits of using a Bamboo Toothbrush https://ubuzzup.com/benefits-of-using-a-bamboo-toothbrush/ https://ubuzzup.com/benefits-of-using-a-bamboo-toothbrush/#respond Tue, 04 May 2021 11:49:43 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1708 The bamboo toothbrush, such as the ones from Bambooth,  has a lot of benefits over conventional plastic or metal toothbrushes. These are reasons why they have become so popular with people from all walks of life. Below we will discuss the many reasons why a bamboo toothbrush can make a great investment.

Image credit

First of all, bamboo toothbrushes are better for the environment because they are made of all natural materials. This means that there are no harmful chemicals or toxins in these materials. Since plastics can sometimes Leach into water sources, it is best to use bamboo toothbrushes instead. Also, these are biodegradable materials which means that they can be turned into energy for the future. This is especially important in light of global warming and the issues surrounding it today.

Image credit

Second of all, bamboo toothbrushes have a more advanced technology than typical toothbrushes with a plastic handle. The advanced technology is represented by the fact that the handle of a bamboo toothbrush has grooves on both sides of the handle. These groves help to trap bad breath causing bacteria that reside in between the teeth, between the bristles of the brush, and between the teeth themselves. These bacteria can easily cause foul mouth odors and bad breath, and this is why a bamboo handle on a toothbrush helps to keep these problems at bay.

What Are Global Standards For Food Storage And Distribution? https://ubuzzup.com/what-are-global-standards-for-food-storage-and-distribution/ https://ubuzzup.com/what-are-global-standards-for-food-storage-and-distribution/#respond Tue, 20 Apr 2021 13:56:26 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1696 Why are there international standards for food storage and distribution? International standards are created to ensure that standards are met across the world for the protection of citizens everywhere. Groups of nations have agreed to a set of standards that must be followed whenever one country wishes to export goods to another. Nations that are part of the World Trade Organization have agreed to a set of trade rules that must be followed when it comes to the importing, exporting, and delivering of goods.

Image credit

If one nation wishes to export food to another, there must be international standards that are met. This helps to protect the supply chain, meaning that goods and especially food are kept in top condition for the consumer at the end of the chain. Depending on what the standards are, that may mean charges will be placed on the food in order to compensate for the safety steps that need to occur. For more information on the benefits of taking part in a BRC Audit, visit a site like MQM Consulting

Image credit

There is, unfortunately, huge scope for crimes such as food fraud and attempts at adulteration throughout a supply chain. This is why laws and regulations are so important, ensuring that procedures for safety are followed and that traceability of food sources is easily identified. Businesses can sign up to recognised schemes and receive regular audits, which provides considerable peace of mind for consumers.

How to Develop a Formula for Success in Business https://ubuzzup.com/how-to-develop-a-formula-for-success-in-business/ https://ubuzzup.com/how-to-develop-a-formula-for-success-in-business/#respond Mon, 19 Apr 2021 13:05:27 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1693 If you are interested in knowing how to develop a formula for success in business, you will probably read a book on the subject or at least spend time watching a lot of business related content online. For some people, this is enough. However, these won’t be tailored to your specific business needs and it is probably a good idea for you to make a formula for success in the business that you practice. For advice on Business Coaching, visit Randall and Payne

If you want to know how to develop a formula for success in business, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. First of all, it is a mistake to believe that the formula you will create for success in business will work with all businesses. Far from it, the most successful companies out there all share a certain core philosophy about their success. If you put a different spin on it, however, you could find yourself starting your own business that is absolutely unique.

One thing that is worth mentioning about a formula for success in business is that it should be designed around an area of interest to you. If you are an artistic person, for example, you may want to design a formula for success in business that is designed around a way for you to express yourself creatively. Whatever area of interest that you have, you should devote some time to finding out all you can about it and coming up with a formula for success in business that works for you.

Fleet Vehicle Maintenance Tips to Keep your Fleet Running Smoothly https://ubuzzup.com/fleet-vehicle-maintenance-tips-to-keep-your-fleet-running-smoothly/ https://ubuzzup.com/fleet-vehicle-maintenance-tips-to-keep-your-fleet-running-smoothly/#respond Thu, 15 Apr 2021 13:22:23 +0000 http://ubuzzup.com/?p=1690 It’s not only freight shipping and transit companies that rely on a fleet of company vehicles to keep their business operating. There are many different types of businesses that would be in big trouble if their fleet of work vehicles were off the road, including contractors, landscaping companies, courier services, and many more. In order to ensure the success of their business, these companies who rely on their commercial fleet vehicles need to make sure their fleets are kept running smoothly. If you are a fleet manager or a business owner, then keep reading to find out a few top fleet maintenance tips from Spencers Auto & Diesel Fleet Mechanics which will help keep your commercial fleet running smoothly.

Make Preventative Maintenance a Priority

Addressing potential issues before they turn into problems is a great way to help keep your fleet of commercial vehicles running on schedule. Most drivers perform at least some types of preventative maintenance on their vehicles, such as tire rotations and oil changes, but as a fleet manager, you should go one step further by performing routine vehicle safety inspections to check things such as fluid levels, belt tension, and general inspections for signs of wear and tear that could lead to premature failure of essential vehicle components.

Basic issues such as proper tire inflation and low fluid levels can be checked by anybody, even fleet managers who have minimal experience when it comes to automotive mechanics, but it is still important to ensure you have certified fleet mechanics perform more comprehensive preventative maintenance inspections and checks. Their experience will let them identify problems that someone with minimal experience would be unable to identify. They will also be able to spot issues which could cause breakdowns or accidents in advance, and then replace those parts before any problems or more substantial damage arises. This helps to keep your fleet running smoothly, avoiding unnecessary costs and employee downtime.

Prepare for the Worst

Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how religiously fleet managers adhere to fleet vehicle maintenance schedules, or how carefully their employees drive, there is always a chance that something will go wrong with your vehicles. While you can avoid it to some extent by applying the tips in this article, when something does go wrong, make sure you are prepared. Make sure you have a reliable fleet vehicle mechanic who will be able to diagnose the issues and get your fleet vehicles back on the road as quickly as possible.

The fleet vehicle mechanics at Spencers Auto and Diesel are the number one choice for many fleet managers in Ocala, FL. If you are looking for a fleet mechanic to help you manage your fleet in Ocala, FL, then give them a call to make sure that when something does go wrong with your vehicle, you have a certified fleet mechanic standing by, ready to get you back on the road.

Frequently Review your Fleet Management Plan

For a sure fire way to reduce a fleet managers’ stress, make it easier to manage costs, ensure driver safety, improve the brand’s image – by making sure all vehicles are in good shape, both aesthetically and mechanically – and increase regulatory compliance, you need to have a well-executed fleet management plan. As any company grows, so does the fleet, and over time drivers and/or vehicles can be replaced. It’s important for fleet managers to review these plans regularly, to ensure they remain up-to-date on the current standings of the fleet. One of the best ways to keep a fleet running smoothly is by performing periodic audits on key performance indicators.

Wrapping Up…

Whether you manage a handful of work vans, or dozens of 18-wheelers, as a fleet manager you have a lot on your plate. But, by utilising a comprehensive fleet maintenance plan, performing regular preventative maintenance tasks, and ensuring that all employees are on the same page with regards to vehicle safety, you can improve the performance of the company vehicles, and ultimately ensure that your fleet keeps running smoothly.
