Inspirados por la película The Tree Lover – Trädälskaren (2008), del director Jonas Selberg, la empresa sueca Treehotel inició hace algún tiempo un proyecto que puede cambiar el futuro de la arquitectura. El Mirrorcube –»Cubo de espejo«, 277.000 €– es ni más ni menos que un cubículo construido con los más modernos materiales – y los más clásicos, como la madera – para conseguir así un efecto único. En un entorno totalmente natural se emplazan estos cubos habitables que destacan por estar recubiertos de un cristal especial fabricado con la última tecnología que permite aislar del ruido y la climatología el interior del habitáculo.

Al tratarse de un material tipo ´espejo´ todo el entorno se refleja en la superficie de la estancia, con lo que no produce ningún impacto paisajístico.

Complejas fórmulas matemáticas realizadas con súper ordenadores han posibilitado el uso de cables de acero que sujetan cada uno de estos futuristas cubos para así poder aguantar sin problemas cualquier inclemencia climatológica.

Deserted Mining Town of Pyramiden, Sweden

Like This!

A thriving coal-mining town sold by Sweden to the former Soviet Union in the early 1920s fell victim to a classic case of soviet state-run company decision-making. Once the town was deemed insufficiently necessary and productive for the government’s purposes it was summarily and suddenly evacuated in its entirety. The population left many relics and furniture items behind which tourists can see through the windows – but not up close as visitors are forbidden (for safety reasons) from entering.

The Russian mining settlement of Pyramiden was discontinued and abandoned in 1998. Since then time has virtually been standing still here. With its wide streets and planned town-structure the place is a witness to the Soviet presence on the islands in the 1970s and 1980s. Everything here was designed with effectiveness and with mining in mind, but also with the intention of taking care of the workers’ welfare and family life. In contrast to the male dominated Longyearbyen, a community of families was characteristic for the Russian settlements.

Pyramiden – De Wikipedia

Pyramiden (DanishNorwegian and Swedish meaning «the pyramid», Russian: Пирамида, piramida) was a Russian settlement and coal mining community on the archipelago of SvalbardNorway. It was founded by Sweden in 1910, and sold to the Soviet Union in 1927.

It lies at the foot of the Billefjorden on the island of Spitsbergen, and is named for the pyramid-shaped mountain adjacent to the town. The settlement, with a one time population of over 1,000 inhabitants,[1] was abandoned January 10, 1998 by its owner, the state-owned Russian companyArctikugol Trust, and is now a ghost town. Within the buildings things remain exactly as they were left, abandoned in a hurry.

There are no restrictions on visiting Pyramiden. However, visitors may not enter any buildings without permission, even if the doors are open, due to the health and safety hazards involved. Most buildings are now locked. Pyramiden is accessible by boat or snowmobile. Guided tours are available in Russian, Norwegian, and English.

The nearest settlements are Svalbard’s capital, Longyearbyen, some 50 km to the south,Barentsburg approximately 100 km south-east and the small research community of Ny-Ålesund, 100 km to the west.
