‘Kong: Skull Island’ - The VFX Tools Behind the King of the Jungle | Design FX | WIRED

King Kong films hold a special distinction in the annals of cinema. Each new entry in the series often sets a new high-water mark for movie making special effects. Mike Seymour breaks down some the techniques used in 'Kong: Skull Island,’ one of the most visually impressive films to date.

As Doctor Doom from ‘the fantastic four’…

As Doutan from ‘Warcraft’…

As himself, when not in ‘motion-capture’…

As Koba from ‘Dawn of the planet of the apes’…

As above, an when not monkeying about, he looks as if about to go ‘ape-shit’

Strain - Aloha

Aloha’s flowers will be big and fluffy, leaving room for white wispy hairs and sparkling crystals. The aroma of this strain is that of grass and citrus for a fresh experience that may have you thinking of your next island getaway. Its sativa effects can be a touch too much for some users, so those who are looking for less head high stimulation should be warned.

The face you make when you wake up in Jamaica!!! #SideEffectsOfJamaica

SERIE: Top 5 green roofs worldwide

The City Hall rooftop garden

Chicago’s most famous rooftop garden sits atop City Hall, an 11-story office building in the Loop. First planted in 2000, the City Hall rooftop garden was conceived as a demonstration project - part of the City’s Urban Heat Island Initiative - to test the benefits of green roofs and how they affect temperature and air quality. The garden consists of 20,000 plants of more than 150 species, including shrubs, vines and two trees. The plants were selected for their ability to thrive in the conditions on the roof, which is exposed to the sun and can be windy and arid. Most are prairie plants native to the Chicago region.

The first major passively ventilated & cooled building in London, winner of the RIBA President’s Research Award 2007

“The building has a hybrid environmental strategy, naturally ventilated all year and passively cooled through the summer months but engaging downdraught cooling via a central lightwell through periods of summer peak temperatures. The London ‘heat island effect’ shows the city centre to be warming but the SSEES project demonstrates that it is possible to configure a low energy strategy in a city centre at these latitudes. This is the first known application of this low energy environmental strategy in a city centre in the world. The strategy has been exhaustively modelled and tested at the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development at De Montfort University, Leicester, and the BP Institute for Multiphase Flow at Cambridge University. Fresh air, tempered in winter or pre-cooled in mid summer, flows from the atrium across the floorplates to the exterior exhausts. We have devised acoustically treated narrow section transfer ducts within partitions to allow air to pass across enclosed spaces such as the first floor computer rooms without unwelcome sound transfer.”
