So ein Ding 24/3 - dr.dk/DR2: "I denne uge ser Nikolaj Sonne på anmeldelser af de to 8 megapixel kameramobiler Samsung innov8 og Sony Ericsson C905.
De dyster på bedste kameraydelse under forskellige forhold som man typisk kommer ud for.

Derudover er der en joker i spil i form af det udmærkede kompaktkamera Canon IXUS I80, der også har 8 megapixel"

Article - 1558 - Birminghams Beorma Tower Gets The Horne: "he designs for an ashamedly blocky 30 floor tower by Trevor Horne Architects could be the next tall building proposal for Birmingham.

The scheme by Sahlia Investments occupies a 0.77 hectare site between Digbeth, Well Lane, Park Street and Allison Street literally over the road from the famously organic Selfridges store that has put Birmingham on the map of modern architecture.

If built it will contain offices, a hotel and basement parking in a new urban quarter that will ring a revamped public area at Orwell Place.

The architects claim their scheme was inspired by the Satellite City Towers of Pritzker Prize winning architect, Luis Barragán although the complex geometric form of the scheme and the airy glass cladding certainly flies in the face of Barragán's soaring forms and strong use of Mexican colours.

The blockiness is designed as a deliberate visual counterpoint to the curvaceousness of Selfridges although it rejects a traditional straight up tower shape for something with slipped elements and projecting sections that are suspended in mid-air out creating a more complicated form.

At ground level the existing site is a challenging one to develop as it contains several listed buildings. The architects have come up with a solution for this that will see them retained with their facades worked into the proposals creating a variety of old and new"

BEORMA - Google Search: "Birmingham' roughly means 'The home of the tribe or people of Beorma'."

Solihull Council - Chelmsley Wood history

Solihull Council - Chelmsley Wood history: "During the Second World War some 3,000 houses in Birmingham were destroyed and no more were built for 6 years.

In order to meet demand, new houses had to be built in large numbers and the slum clearance programme had to be resumed to enable redevelopment of Birmingham city centre. Large new estates were built within the city boundaries e.g. Druids Heath, but by the 1960s there was insufficient land left to accommodate further large-scale developments.

In November 1963, Birmingham City Council took the decision that would lead to the building of the Chelmsley Wood estate."
