Pin, or Safety Pin, was invented by an american named Walter Hunt in 1849.
Amanita citrus sinensis, commonly known in english as orange’s mushroom. It might remind you its lovely tasted, posh but a little bit tricky cousin Amanita caesarea, commonly known in english as Caesar’s mushroom. If you happen to know Chinese, you may find that orange’s mushroom and Caesar’s mushroom unreasonably share the same name in Chinese. Nothing can be more confusing than that. Despite name and appearance, they have nothing in common. Continue reading Orange’s Mushroom
This is the last competition we participated and lost in 2015. The competition has been sponsored by a glass company for the past decades, many topics therefore were closely connected with glass. This year is the 50 year anniversary, they made a anniversary-feeling topic — “the glass”, asking participants rethink the role of glass in architecture. Continue reading Glass for A Blind Child
People write plans on calendar. That’s why many calendars leave space for writing. But it’s boring. That’s why you only do it on the first 2-3 days every year:
1 January: Change myself this year

Granted Calendar goes deeper, unveiling the underlying patterns of time that nobody has ever seen. These hidden messages could possibly assist you on study, career, thinking, relationship, and almost any human activity. In a word, smart people follow Granted Calendar.

The second house we lived in Milan was a super tiny one, about just 20 m². Small as it was, everything had to go vertical: Washing machine on top of fridge; bed on top of a balcony in between bathroom and wardrobe, connected to the living room with a moveable wooden ladder; orange tile on top of bathroom, indicating you could sit there eating watermelon in summer; of course, you could lie or sit or put things on top of wardrobe too.
Although it was so small, it had almost everything to support our life: except fridge and washing machine we talked before, there are a tiny balcony, a ceiling fan, an oven, a shower room, a bidet, and so on. We loved it when we saw it the first time. Continue reading Lamp A
