Fun on three wheels

Drive me to the moon

Audi is supporting the Part Time Scientists team in the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition to land a privately funded rover on the moon in 2017. The brand new rover, which will need to drive 500 meters across the moon’s surface, is being built out of aluminium. The contest aims to incentivize space entrepreneurs to create a new era of affordable access to the moon and beyond.

Seeing the wood for the trees

Aluminium curtain walling from Sapa’s Technal brand has helped turn a stunning treehouse in Yorkshire in the UK into a multi-award-winning conference venue recognized for architectural excellence. Designed by the Harris Partnership and built by Conlon Construction, the 2,060-square-foot airfoil-shaped timber, copper and glass treehouse accommodates up to 140 people and appears to float among the trees. Fabricated and installed by AW Glazing, Technal’s GEODE-MX SG structural glazing was used to provide brilliant views of the surrounding woodland and to maintain a feeling of openness and nature, both inside and out.
