CEO Who Hates His Title
Climbing mountains and living on the beach, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia Outdoor Clothing, had no intention of being one of the most successful people in his industry. However, he has used his title and his company to do more than just tell southern frat apparel. Chouinard has driven environmental campaigns, started one of the first maternity leave programs, and changed the way we look at business. It’s people like Chouinard that make us realize that doing big business with a soul, while incredibly difficult, is possible.

J.J. Abrams’ second Star Trek outing “Into Darkness” will hit movie screens this week, no doubt packed with excitement, explosions, mind-melding Vulcans and phasers set to stun.

“This building puts 4,450 households on two acres and it is actually designed with energy conservation in mind. By going huge they are getting tremendous manufacturing efficiencies; by going vertical they get the kind of repetition that makes it affordable. By going half a mile high and 220 stories they are going to get noticed.”
That is Lloyd Alter describing the sustainable case for what will be the world’s tallest building. See more pictures and a video here: One Building, One City: World’s tallest prefab, Sky City, is breaking ground in June
