Legendary Bristol-based outfit Massive Attack is turning over data from various tours and recording stints to Manchester University in the name of research. The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research will use the volunteered information to assess the primary sources of carbon emissions within the industry, from “band travel and production, audience transport and venue.”…

With the release of Seven Up! in 1964, filmmaker Michael Apted introduced a documentary series that would become one of cinema's most ambitious, groundbreaking and beautiful projects. Every seven years, Apted has produced an installment that follows the same 14 British people—from age seven to this year's final installment, in which they've reached 63 years…

In a post-apocalyptic future, what might happen to life if humans left the scene? After all, humans are very likely to disappear long before the sun expands into a red giant and exterminates all living things from the Earth. Assuming that we don’t extinguish all other life as we disappear (an unlikely feat in spite …

For years now, luxury hotel group Six Senses has impressed upon travelers the positive effects of adhering, honestly, to the values of the destinations they visit. This is undeniably evident in Bhutan, the mystifying, mountainous nation in South Asia, where Gross National Happiness factors into the daily lives of its population. Set high in the Eastern Himalayas, landlocked between India and China, Bhutan’s natural beauty and its mythological history appeal to many who dream of remote travel—but several roadblocks prevent rampant tourism. This has been to the benefit of the Buddhist nation. In building blockades, the Bhutanese have preserved their culture and lands for dedicated, respectful and patient visitors.

In hopes of convincing car owners to opt into electric models, Britain is considering awarding green drivers benefits for being eco-friendly—thus allowing “civic authorities to give the greenest vehicles preferential treatment, such as allowing them to drive in bus lanes, use special parking spaces, or access areas that are barred to more polluting alternatives.”

In UI/UX, a common pattern that’s needed time and again is that of a simple animated opening and closing panel, or ‘drawer’. You don’t need a library to make these. With some basic HTML/CSS and JavaScript, we’re going to learn how to do it ourselves.

From the tight medieval alleys of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter to Eixample’s carefully planned, uniquely shaped octangular blocks (the cut-off corners transform every intersection into more open plazas), Barcelona bursts with history, spirit, and inspiration—it’s a city that renders even the most fervent minimalist design lovers speechless and transforms them into romantics, with a little help from Gaudí and friends. In between the voluptuous, biomorphic, elaborate, and ornate Catalan takes on Art Nouveau (aka Modernisme), below are recommendations for where to stop and take a breath. For additional Barcelona take a look at our Word of Mouth: Barcelona guide from earlier this year and our personal notes on visiting the city.

There’s a lot to learn from London, a city with perhaps the most storied music history in the past 150 or so years. During a recent visit, we delved into several multi-sensory, sonically-driven experiences—some as simple as a live orchestral concert and others as creative as a five-story flat transformed into a living diorama of a time machine. It’s this kind of evolving energy that makes London a hub for future-forward dance music venues, too.

One in three people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and women are 70% more likely to suffer than men. In London, Buzzbar (the walk-in digital and marketing production service) has responded to these statistics by creating the world’s largest SAD lamp for passers-by to up their serotonin levels on the way to and from work.

Dubbed “Wellness Window,” the idea was inspired following a friend of Buzzbar’s CEO, Anna Downey, being diagnosed with SAD. “She was a different person,” Downey tells us. “And the stats around SAD are shocking. Buzzbar already brightens up one of the busiest intersections of London; the Lumie installation takes this to the next level. We’re hoping that the installation will help hundreds of thousands of Londoners and visitors from around the world. People seem to be enjoying it… We’ve had a few locals having coffee breaks in front of the lamp.”

Venice is a reality apart. Every time you arrive in the city you're catapulted into reflections on water and glass, too many tourists along small crowded streets, palazzos and alleys and gondolas. It's a place where senses are constantly stimulated. It's real, but somehow imaginary.

Officially on display at the Paris Zoo from 19 October, this unicellular organism will be the first-ever “brainless blob” to be showcased in a zoo. Despite not having a brain, the mass can complete a bevy of tasks from improvising music to maneuvering through a maze, remembering which food it likes best, and crossing a…
