Final Friday Five


February – it’s the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on! See below for our round up of the best articles from the past month…

Fixing our broken housing market

Earlier this month the government announced its plans to ‘fix the broken housing market’ and build more homes across England. This included a series of measures to build homes in the right places, to speed up house building and to help diversify the housing market.

While this is entirely a step in the right direction, we’ve also called for better, more efficient homes, to ensure that properties are built with residents and the future in mind.

The list includes everything from Disney favourite Moana (which shoes how dependent some communities are on the surrounding environment) to Leonardo DiCaprio for his ‘Before the Flood’ documentary.

No surprise as to who won the Lifetime Achievement Award…!

Box set binge spawns 3D plans of TV shows

Do you just love The US Office? If so, you’ll feel like you know Dunder Mifflin like the back of your hand.

And any Mad Men fans will have seen Don Draper walking through Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce countless times.

These are just two of the fictional environments that have been recreated as 3D plans by Drawbotics. The team spent hours binge-watching their favourite TV shows, before recreating authentic floor plans each fictitious office. (Sounds like a pretty good weeks’ work to us…!)

You can see these here.
