Dutch NL Architects’ newest bridge is part of their proposal to connect Hong Kong with the mainland of China.

The bridge’s dynamic twisted form is a great resolution to the differences in driving styles, namely that in Hong Kong, people drive on the left side of the road and in the mainland China, they drive on the right side.

To address the changes in driving, the architects have designed the road flipper -a device designed to ‘celebrate’ the traffic switch. It aims to redirect traffic in an efficient and safe way by physically twisting the roads.

In addition to the bridge, NL Architects have proposed to make some adjustments to the master plan to improve the area.

The ‘necklace’ is formed by an archipelago of artificial islands along the border of Hong Kong and China.

Ji Jingyu, a 48-year-old stuntman, from China, is walking barefoot on a giant knife, during a performance, in a park in Nanjing. I knew China hosts some really weird events.

But I don’t see how it can get any more bad ass then a dude walking on the sharp edge of a custom made giant knife.

This epic annual event took place on May 2.

A Florida man police say wore an elaborate mask to rob several banks and businesses in the Tri-State over the past month is behind bars on a $3 million bond.

Conrad Zdzierak, 30, was arraigned Thursday morning on six counts of aggravated robbery in Hamilton County court.

Acting on a tip, officers from several departments served a search warrant at the Extended Stay America Hotel at 320 Glensprings Drive in Springdale Wednesday afternoon where they arrested Zdzierak.

Officers discovered a red dye pack from a bank had exploded inside a vehicle that belongs to Zdzierak.

Police then tried to enter Zdzierak’s room, but were encountered by a dog that bit one of the officers, prompting one of them to fire their gun.

Once inside, officers discovered evidence, including a Hollywood-style mask linking Zdzierak to six robberies.

“The suspect seen in the surveillance photographs and that we were looking for, we believed to be an African American male. The suspect was actually a male, white, who was wearing an elaborate disguise,” said Lieutenant Michael Mathis with the Springdale Police Department.

Springdale police says they have never seen such an elaborate mask.

Police say Zdzierak committed five of the robberies last Friday, April 9.

Investigators say Zdzierak would hand a note to an employee indicating he had a gun and demanded cash.

According to police, Zdzierak has been living in the Springdale hotel for the last year.

The robberies Zdzierak is charged with are:

  • March 5 – Chaco Bank, 1143 Smiley, Forest Park, Ohio
  • April 9 – Key Bank, 8457 Winton Road, Springfield Township, Ohio
  • April 9 – Fifth Third Bank, 10595 Springfield Pike, Woodlawn, Ohio
  • April 9 – Key Bank, 11355 Princeton Pike, Springdale, Ohio
  • April 9 – CVS Pharmacy, 11601 Springfield Pike, Springdale, Ohio
  • April 9 – Franklin Savings, 1100 West Kemper Road, Forest Park, Ohio

In a world where people appreciate good design everywhere, cool mini hotel rooms are the latest ‘it’ trend. In Tokyo, the Capsule Inn exemplifies the bare-essentials hotel rooms for brief use, and similar concepts are popping up at airports, train stations and downtowns around the world, replacing and mimicking the “day rooms” already existing at many airports.

Unlike Tokyo’s bed-only cabins where customers climb into a human equivalent of a honeycomb for a night’s rest, Yotel pods at Gatwick and Heathrow airports in London and Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam come in larger and more comfortable formats. These self-contained mini hotel rooms are equipped with a bed, table, HD TV and Wi-Fi.

The fourth Yotel is set to arrive in New York in 2011 with a location opening on 42nd and 10th street boasting 669 luxury rooms and the largest outside terrace in any hotel in New York

Also in Amsterdam, Citizen M has a hotel with 230 mini rooms at Schiphol Airport and a 215-room hotel in Amsterdam City. Citizen M plans to open similar hotels across Europe.

Qbic Hotels has opened two “cheap chic” hotels with mini rooms in the Netherlands: Qbic World Trade Centre Amsterdam and Qbic Maastricht, plus one in Antwerp, Belgium.

Taking the next step in rest and space efficiency, Russia’s Arch Group designed the SleepBox.

Along with an airport version of the rest pod, equipped with the usual, high-tech necessities offered by other companies, Arch Group has also designed an easy-to-relocate version fit for hostels. A small, mobile compartment, 2m (l) x 1.4m (w) x 2.3m (h), SleepBox is made of wood and MDF. SleepBox is meant to “allow very efficient use of available space and, if necessary, a quick change of layout”, making it perfect for hostels where demand and space available often come in conflict with each other. The hostel-specific SleepBox features bunk beds, flip-out tables and sockets for computers or phone chargers and not much else.
