(UIUC accepted me pretty early on. then UC Berkeley rejected me a second time. took me a week to get over this. T____T;;; then PSU finally got back to me. yayy~ choosing PDX over Urbana-Champaign although the latter has a pretty good program as well, because.. the Pacific NW! and taking the bus or train 2h to a major city from Champaign would kinda be a pain.)
Student Housing Project Keetwonen, Amsterdam Here, containers have been used to create 1,000 dorm units for Dutch students, making it the biggest container city in the world. It was launched by Tempo Housing in 2006. Not only does it look hip and provides all the amenities a student could ask for, it also has a rooftop used for rainwater drainage, heat dispersal and insulation of the units below. The award-winning project has received a lot of international attention and is so successful that its planned relocation after 5 years has been postponed until 2016.
Across the University of Arizona campus, students, faculty and staff get to enjoy these separated bike paths. (photo by Steven Vance)
This would be nice on UCSD campus. (on Library Walk — instead of cyclists needing to dismount and walk or try to meander slowly through throngs of students walking. and on Ridge Walk / that other path from Muir to ERC.)
I really never knew an Arizona town could be so bike-friendly. I guess I’ve heard too much about Phoenix.
