Even the most ardent and hardened of southerners has to admit that Manchester is one of the UK’s great cities. Blessed with an amazing cathedral, an abundance of brilliant pubs and an immense cultural history, we’re always looking for an excuse to hop on the Pendolino from Euston on a Friday evening. Now we have another one.

Climate change is the most horrific threat our species has ever known: No matter how powerful you are or how much money you have, our transforming planet is a reckoning for every one of us. But there are degrees to this misery. If you’re perched in a Manhattan penthouse, the effects might not be immediately apparent (because you don’t care or aren’t paying attention, or both). If you’re a subsistence farmer in Kenya, the situation is already much more dire.

To help cure the planet’s ailments, Zhen Dai suggests antacid. In powdered form, calcium carbonate—often used to relieve upset stomachs—can reflect light; by peppering the sky with the shiny white particles, the Harvard researcher thinks it might be possible to block just enough sunlight to achieve some temperature control here on Earth. Dai’s work calls for a custom-­designed test balloon that, pending an independent committee’s green light, is set to release up to a kilogram of calcium carbonate 12 miles above the US, in what will be the first solar geoengineering experiment in the lower atmosphere. Small onboard propellers will stir the payload into the air.

Camilla Greenwell for Secret Cinema It was a glorious, audacious debut. The creators of the secret worlds are currently delivering their 48th production, which opened on 8 August, styled as their first festival with a heady mix of live music, theatre scenes and of course an immersive film screening. And there is much to praise about Secret Cinema Presents William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, which transports crowds of up to 5,000 per show to Verona Beach, a sprawling open-air backdrop inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s cult 1996 classic.

You know how people are always taking pictures near the leaning tower of Pisa, pretending to hold it? Or the classic “sun in palm” photos? While these may be considered “classic” cliches, with the constantly rising social media use, a lot of new ones have emerged. And one Instagram account called Insta Repeat is dedicated to pointing them out.

the philosophy behind belgium based studio ARK is returning to the basics by providing a simple dwelling within nature. over the past three years the studio has been working on re-designing, building and testing different types of ‘ark-shelters’. the aim is to provide a place that of comfort in the heart of the nature where one can detox their mind. with this perspective ARK has created a new shelter type — the prefabricated ‘into the wild cabin’. as the 40m² dwelling is surrounded by openings on each of its five sides, it is entire exposed to its natural surroundings. each opening brings in a new atmosphere.

an architectural artwork by mark wallinger and studio octopi has opened at runnymede in the english county of surrey. more than 800 years ago, the meadow of runnymede served as the location where feudal barons forced king john to seal the magna carta — a founding moment in shaping the basis of common law across the world. titled ‘writ in water’, the installation celebrates the enduring significance of the charter, and has been designed to offer an immersive environment for contemplation and reflection.
