the pop music center in southern taiwan by manuel monteserín opened its doors to the public, ten years after it won the award of an international competition. the design team sought to give a strong identity to this area, where due to its history and geopolitical situation, many cultural elements coexist and thrive.
The high-speed trains will be entirely built in the North East and Midlands, at factories in Derby, Crewe and County Durham.
Capable of speeds up to 225mph (360km/h), the trains will reportedly be the fastest and lowest carbon per passenger-kilometre trains of their kind in the UK.
By 2025, Dubai plans for a fourth of its buildings to be printed in 3D construction methods, demonstrating the potential of a fast-growing technology capable of redefining and pushing the limits of traditional architecture. As the technique emerges as a viable solution in the construction, engineering, and architecture areas, its popularity is quickly increasing. In fact, just between 2021 and 2028, the global 3D construction market is expected to grow by 91%, according to a July 2021 report by Grand View Research.

The UK Space Agency is awarding a £3.9m grant for the development of Reaction Engines’ Sabre technology.
Sabre – Synergetic Air Breathing Rocket Engine – is a new class of engine for propelling both high-speed aircraft and spacecraft, delivering the fuel efficiency of a jet engine with the power of a rocket.
The European Space Agency (ESA) and Russia's Roscosmos plan to launch their joint Mars rover mission in 2022. It was earlier planned to take off in 2020, but got delayed for several reasons. The main cause behind the delay is that the journey from Earth to Mars is only attempted when the planets are favourably aligned. As the agencies are again gearing up for the launch of the ExoMars "Rosalind Franklin" vehicle, the ESA has shared an Instagram post explaining the incredible features of the cameras aboard it and how they intend to explore the Red Planet.
OnRobot's new WebLytics software can monitor the performance of multiple collaborative robot applications simultaneously and in real-time, gathering equipment data from both robots and tools that transforms into easy-to-understand, visualized device and application-level intelligence.
Virtual and augmented reality headsets are designed to place wearers directly into other environments, worlds, and experiences. While the technology is already popular among consumers for its immersive quality, there could be a future where the holographic displays look even more like real life. In their own pursuit of these better displays, the Stanford Computational Imaging Lab has combined their expertise in optics and artificial intelligence.
