Unlike traditional low-cost, temporary disaster relief shelters, Binishells are intended to be permanent fixtures. The technique is speedy and, according to Bini, costs start at just $3,500. A cluster of Binishells might look like a sci-fi film set, but the materials to build one could be found on any job site. “Aside from some special additives, our concrete mix can be sourced locally almost anywhere,” says Nicoló Bini

Binishells were pioneered by Dr. Dante Bini, Nicoló’s father, and the first Binishell, which popped up in 1964, is still standing.

I’m glad Scott Watanabe's amazing designs of King Turbo Bug are a hit, but let's just take a moment to consider that he also gave us another glimpse of how Ralph could have looked and that he’s posing like a ballerina in the first pic.

Ow, yeah… I remember reading about this, for a period in the production time… Ralph was supposed to retain his 8-bit look even on the CGI views of the video-game world ^^

"I have never been interested in exposing myself to media like architectural magazines and never felt it a necessity… I don’t want to have labels put on me and my works, like I am better or worse than this or that architect, because architecture itself is very pure and touches our heart."
