EDEN FALLS: Skyscraper Zoo Topped With a Waterfall
Costanera Sur is a proposal for a vertical zoo in Buenos Aires that transforms a pile of rubble into a towering pillar of falling water. Designed by Visiondivision. the project aims to reclaim debris left over from the construction of Buenos Aires’ decades-old highways, is entirely self-sufficient, and could theoretically provide water and energy to surrounding structures. Costanera Sur features a central pipe structure that draws water from a nearby river, filters it, and pumps it through the building, eventually overflowing a rooftop pool and creating a waterfall that flows over the building’s facade.
The ETRX3 series is the 3rd generation of advanced ZigBee modules from Telegesis and the first module family on the market to feature the EM357 – the latest ARM® Cortex M-3 SOC’s from Ember.

They will be available with either an on board antennae or a Hirose U.
Zen Style Medieval Japanese Architecture (Karayo)
By Haunty The Architecture of the Zen Sect (Zenshuyo) The first Zen Buddhist sect, the Rinzai, was introduced to Japan by a monk called Myoan Eisai (1141-1215), only to be followed shortly by the second Zen sect, the Soto, that was introduced by Eihei Dogen (1200-1253). Eisai was supported by the second Kamakura shogun, Yoritomo's son Yoriie, and was encouraged to build Buddhist temples in Kyoto and in Kamakura.

Z architecture principles of operation
Sign extending from a variable bit-width Sometimes we need to extend the sign of a number but we don't know a priori the number of bits, b, in which it is represented. (Or we could be programming in a language like Java, which lacks bitfields. ) The code above requires four operations, but when the bitwidth is a constant rather than variable, it requires only two fast operations, assuming the upper bits are already zeroes.

In May 2014, SC Johnson unveiled a new exhibit called The Two Taliesins. showcasing the architecture of Wright’s two famous homes: Taliesin, in Spring Green, Wisconsin and Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The exhibit compares and contrasts how Wright incorporated his signature and revolutionary “organic” design concepts into his own homes, located in two very different landscapes and climates.
