BOX PIG - building bail-out - Khadambi Asalache - Footprint - Foster’s chair

BOX PIG
Is it a chair? Is it a table? It’s BOX PIG, and it certainly has a healthy set of teeth.

Building bail-out
Read about the American Institute of Architects’ request for Story text00 billion in federal stimulus funds - for green building, schools and ‘community development’.

Khadambi Asalache
Save up a few pounds for the National Trust’s £4m quest to preserve the house of African poet Khadambi Asalache, a modest Lambeth home boasting ‘one of the most extraordinary interiors in Britain’.

Footprint
Check out the AJ’s new sustainability blog, Footprint. The site - which is updated daily by AJ sustainability editor Hattie Hartman - focuses on eco-projects, green practice, energy issues and sustainable products.

Foster’s chair
Foster + Partners have designed a sofa for German manufacturers Walter Knoll, launched at IMM Cologne in Germany this week. See pictures at Dezeen.
