With great excitement and pride, here are this week's highlights from April 28 to May 2, 2021:
|@barski||Architecture + Design: Old log house, city of Rivne, Ukraine.|
Tentatively, the area of this house is about seventy square meters. In front of the entrance to the house there is no cold dressing room, which protects from the penetration of cold air into the house in winter. But, such houses are easy to warm up with a wood-burning stove. Wood is an excellent heat insulator and breathable material, which prevents mold from developing on the walls of the house.
|@soulsdetour||Dimitrovgrad, the Artificial Child of Communism|
That's why it's sad when you walk the streets and watch the cracked and falling plaster of these old monumental buildings, the crumbling balconies and columns. It is as if this little artificial child of the then system is no longer needed by anyone and is completely abandoned by his parents, who left with the departure of the regime. And it's just ... sad.
|@lizelle||Ancient Roman Features in Modern Day|
Arches are also used in Engineering design and here we see the Umtamvuna River Bridge that connects the province of KwaZulu-Natal with the Eastern Cape. This is the largest steel suspension bridge in South Africa with a span of 206 metres and an archway that has a height of 35 metres above the road which in turn is 30 metres above the water level of the Umtamvuna River. The natural curve of an arch dissipates the force outward thus reducing the tension and giving a bridge its strength.

As much as we witnessed and desired to include the majority of awesome publications, we could only curate specific content that falls within our preferred minimum standard of 500 words (English language) and 1000 words for bilingual posts.
Moreover, we also highly encourage everyone in our community to socially engage with others by commenting on their posts and by replying to their comments.
Thank you very much to all who continuously contribute, participate, and support the Architecture+Design Community!
