Tadao Ando, el concepto arquitectónico de la simplicidad.Como no tenía ninguna formación académica ni conexiones en el mundo de la arquitectura, tuve que hacer todo por mi cuenta. Reconocí la importancia de la auto-ayuda, lo que me llevó a estudiar y actuar más enérgicamente”.

Eurostar Train Service Review - St. Pancras in London | Splash Magazines | Los Angeles

Last week I had a chance to go back into the Connaught Tunnel – the Victorian railway tunnel that runs underneath two of London’s docks and will be part of the future Crossrail service.

This is Urige Buta and his son in their Norwegian flat. Buta fled Ethiopia in 2003, fearing for his life. Originally surviving as a cleaner, he would train in a mile-long service tunnel built for sewage pipes to escape Norway's harsh winter. Now a recognised refugee, he will soon become an Olympic athlete. Thank you UNHCR for this inspiring post! Watch Buta in the marathon on Sunday 12th August.
