Andrea Gore's What's Left of Us explores ritual and symbolism after death. Most remarkable is the outline of each urn which is personalized with the facial profile of the deceased. But the project goes further, the ceramic urns can be made to rapidly disintegrate when buried or enameled to last a much longer time.

Elitsa Nikova's ice fishing hut design modernizes the iconic winter shelter by introducing passive solar heating. South facing glazing follows the sun by manually pushing the unit, which sits on the ice via metal blades, to follow the sun. The hut pivots on the hole inside made for fishing.
