Last week I issued a challenge to design a book lamp like boutique ones made by Typewriter Boneyard but for a fraction of the cost. Lo and behold, user Richard made a beauty. Using three used books and light fitting parts found at a DIY store, he built this model with two hours of spare time and less than £15. A tip of the hat to you sir for putting together such an impressive (and functioning) model.

RO&AD, an architectural firm whose name sounds very much like a quote from an intoxicated Chris Farley, recently designed The Trench Bridge. A pedestrian foot path designed to make us rethink the way we look at bridges, this one crosses the moat in front of Fort de Roovere in Halsteren. A neat concept, but one that would only be applicable on a small scale to bodies of water that stay at a constant depth.
