Hiei. The client is an artist who needed an atelier and a house for his family with a space for his parents to live together in the near future. The houses in the nearby existing residential area are gable-roofed keeping to the regulation that demands slanted roof, which appeared to be providing a sense of serenity along the street. We pursued a study for architecture to match the site in between such residential area and woods. Save this picture!© Satoshi Shigeta© Satoshi Shigeta One structure covering all the requirements and the considerations thereof deemed to be too large a volume for the site of such environment. In addition, we were told that an atelier might cause noise and odor. Taking these conditions into account and being inspired by the client’s objet d’ art reproducing various commodities, we worked out such an overall plan as to arrange three similar, independent houses of cottage type ― one for atelier and the other two are for the client’s family and for his parents. Save this picture!Section The construction of the atelier was simplified to meet the extremely low budget. Cement excelsior boards serving as bearing wall structures with heat insulation and fireproof effect were attached to the structure, which were then covered with corrugated polycarbonate plates. Heat condensing stuff was buried in the ground under the floor to provide floor heating through the foundation utilizing midnight electric power. The surface of the foundation concrete is finished off with trowel to serve as floors. Structural materials for walls and roofs are left exposed to facilitate modification by the client. Save this picture!© Satoshi Shigeta© Satoshi Shigeta The foundation of the two living houses was finished simply with mortar to most efficiently use the floor heating by foundation heat condensing system as well as the atelier. The inside walls were all finished with lauan plywood and painted white partly. Save this picture!© Satoshi Shigeta© Satoshi Shigeta The size and arrangement of windows were proportionally scaled up modeling the conventional cottage type to make the houses look smaller than they actually are. Save this picture!© Satoshi Shigeta© Satoshi Shigeta The floor space of upstairs was not required to be so large but was required to be independent to some extent. As ordinarily upright walls would make the space of upstairs cramped and the ceiling of downstairs too high, the partition walls were leaned to have the solid space divided diagonally, and thereby a ”hill-like-floor” and a ”roof-like-ceiling” emerged. Here appeared such a new model as assembling a small cottage type into a large cottage type. Save this picture!Floor Plans A cottage type is assertive enough to make people imagine the interior to be consistent to the exterior, and vice versa. Above a ceiling suggesting a cottage style roof another ceiling suggesting another cottage style roof is provided, and thereby we think we have created a solid space as if it is ever extending up.

The house is located in a social housing neighborhood from the early 1960´s. Originally conceived in prefabricated concrete panels and wooden trusses saddle roofs, the economic growth of this particular part of the city has generated continuous changes and improvements in the houses, being this specific construction one of the few still left in its original condition, without interventions of any kind.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe project considers an horizontal expansion of the house adjoining it to the east and west limits of the site. The vertical expansion is designed in a light steel structure. Setting the building in the center of the site releases space to the front and back of the house, creating the access and parking to one side, and a wide garden to the other.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreSave this picture!1st floor planThe interiors are designed in search of expanse and natural lighting. In the center of the house, a double storey vertical void is generated, connecting the two levels with a light staircase. This empty vertical space articulates the rooms of the first floor, while it gives intimacy and privacy to the second floor bedrooms.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreNoble materials are specified both in structure and in finishing details, enhancing the particular textures and characteristics of each element.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe house opens itself generously with windows towards the north while it la shuts itself with walls towards the west, seeking the best possible passive heat control, complimented by the various crossed ventilations based on the differences in sunlight [and thus in temperature] that affect the many faces of the construction.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe wooden cladding in the exterior of the second floor is actually a ventilated wall system which helps diminish the thermal transmittance of the walls and at the same time gives a uniform, elegant finish. The exterior walls on first floor are painted in a dark, neutral color that in contrast with the bright illuminated interiors, configure a simple yet sophisticated color palette.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe new residence is not only larger [165 square meters], but it also achieves a better occupation of the site, a new relation with the borders and the exteriors, a more sustainable interaction with the weather, and overall, a much better dialogue with the urban context in which it´s located.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreProject gallerySee allShow lessRÉVELER / Collective CamposazSelected ProjectsAsia Pacific Architecture ForumSymposium Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910490/virginia-house-2712-asociados Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910490/virginia-house-2712-asociados Clipboard Virginia House / 2712 / asociados CopyAbout this office2712 / asociadosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSustainabilityvitacuraChilePublished on January 30, 2019Cite: “Virginia House / 2712 / asociados” [Casa Virginia / 2712 / asociados] 30 Jan 2019.

Hot weather sees charity Trailwalker trek cancelled

first_imgHot weather sees charity Trailwalker trek cancelled  190 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Trailwalker, the 100km trek organised by Oxfam, the Queens Gurkha Signals and The Gurkha Welfare Trust has been cancelled due to the hot weather. The annual trek across the South Downs Way was scheduled to take place this weekend, but with temperatures forecast to rise above 27 degrees Celsius, the Army has advised that participants are at risk of heat injury and exhaustion if the event goes ahead as planned. Teams made up of four walkers with a two-person support crew must complete the distance in 30 hours. Alternatives had been explored, including a shorter route and alternative timing, but a viable option could not be found to run the event without a risk to either safety or the logistical operation.Matt Jerwood, Oxfam Head of Events, Festivals & Regional Engagement said: “The organisations which run the event have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel Trailwalker 2018 after receiving expert advice from the Army.  The health and well-being of the participants has to be the absolute priority. The expert advice we have been given is the predicted hot temperatures and dry conditions present a real risk to walkers, so of course we must cancel.“We had hoped the weather might change but specialist forecasting from the Met office, received this morning, made it clear that it is going to be dangerously hot.” Entrants will be offered the chance to defer to 2019. Two thousand participants registered to take part in this weekend’s event. They tackle the trek in teams of four, walking alongside the Queens Gurkha Signals who complete the exercise as part of their military training. The event takes one year to plan, with careful coordination of logistics and supplies. Trailwalker has been held for the past 20 years and the money raised is shared between The Gurkha Welfare Trust and Oxfam.

Reporters Without Borders to close its English-language site for 24 hours

first_img United StatesAmericas United StatesAmericas to go further WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en In an unprecedented move, Reporters Without Borders will shut down its English-language website for 24 hours from 8 a.m. EST on 18 January, in protest against two online piracy bills, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA), which are currently working their way through the US Congress.In so doing, Reporters Without Borders is joining the many other organizations with a special interest in the Internet, such as Wikipedia, the social network Reddit and the French “hactivist” group, the Parti Pirate (Pirate Party), which will make their websites inaccessible tomorrow in a show of opposition to the proposed legislation.“We have decided to close our English-language website for 24 hours to symbolize the oppressive gag that would spread over the Internet as we know it if SOPA and PIPA are adopted,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These bills would affect an incalculable number of Internet users who are innocent of any kind of intellectual property violation by forcing websites to block access to other sites suspected of vaguely-defined copyright breaches.“These two excessively repressive bills would lead to an unprecedented degree of Internet censorship and would sacrifice online freedom of expression in the name of combating piracy. It is not right that the country that gave birth to the Internet should now deliver the death blow to digital freedom.“Such legislation would discredit the US government’s advocacy of worldwide online freedom of expression and would really hurt netizens who use censorship circumvention tools and open-source communities.

From STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 | 10:39 am 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Business News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News The second of NASA’s two Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) spacecraft has successfully completed its planned main engine burn and is now in lunar orbit. Working together, GRAIL-A and GRAIL-B will study the moon as never before. “NASA greets the new year with a new mission of exploration,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “The twin GRAIL spacecraft will vastly expand our knowledge of our moon and the evolution of our own planet. We begin this year reminding people around the world that NASA does big, bold things in order to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown.”GRAIL-B achieved lunar orbit at 2:43 p.m. PST (5:43 p.m. EST) today. GRAIL-A successfully completed its burn yesterday at 2 p.m. PST (5 p.m. EST). The insertion maneuvers placed the spacecraft into a near-polar, elliptical orbit with an orbital period of approximately 11.5 hours. Over the coming weeks, the GRAIL team will execute a series of burns with each spacecraft to reduce their orbital period to just under two hours. At the start of the science phase in March 2012, the two GRAILs will be in a near-polar, near-circular orbit with an altitude of about 34 miles (55 kilometers).During GRAIL’s science mission, the two spacecraft will transmit radio signal precisely defining the distance between them. As they fly over areas of greater and lesser gravity caused by visible features such as mountains and craters, and masses hidden beneath the lunar surface, the distance between the two spacecraft will change slightly.Scientists will translate this information into a high-resolution map of the moon’s gravitational field. The data will allow scientists to understand what goes on below the lunar surface. This information will increase knowledge of how Earth and its rocky neighbors in the inner solar system developed into the diverse worlds we see today.Each spacecraft carries a small camera called GRAIL MoonKAM (Moon Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students) with the sole purpose of education and public outreach. The MoonKAM program is led by Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, and her team at Sally Ride Science in collaboration with undergraduate students at the University of California in San Diego.GRAIL MoonKAM will engage middle schools across the country in the GRAIL mission and lunar exploration. Thousands of fifth- to eighth-grade students will select target areas on the lunar surface and send requests to the GRAIL MoonKAM Mission Operations Center in San Diego. Photos of the target areas will be sent back by the GRAIL satellites for students to study.A student contest that began in October 2011 also will choose new names for the spacecraft. The new names are scheduled to be announced in January 2012. Ride and Maria Zuber, the mission’s principal investigator at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, chaired the final round of judging.NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, manages the GRAIL mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington. The GRAIL mission is part of the Discovery Program managed at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver built the spacecraft.

Dr.Joshi alleges non-implementation of the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act, 2010. He also contends that provisions of the said act are inadequate to curb the menace of violence against medical professionals and institutions. Therefore, he seeks guidelines to be framed and directions be issued to the State “to implement Guidelines in order to protect medical professionals and institutions from mob violence at the behest of the friends and relatives of the patients.” “Insufficient protection to Medicare Service Institutions and Medicare Service Personnel is a serious violation of their Right to Practice Medical Profession, without any hindrance and also their Right to Life”, petitioner argues.In Tuesday’s hearing, the bench noted-“A concern of seminal importance is raised in this PIL petition. The concern relates to alleged non-implementation of the provisions of the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act, 2010 as well as the amendments introduced in the Epidemic Disease Act, 1897.”Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare appeared for the State and sought two weeks time to file a reply affidavit. Court granted the request and directed the matter to be listed on October 13, 2020.The petition states-“Unfortunately, the violence against medical professionals is a global phenomenon.According to the World Health Organization, about 8-38% of healthcare workers suffer physical violence at some point in their careers. However, it is more acute in our country.”Referring to an October 2017 issue of Indian Journal of Pediatrics, the petition goes on to state that according to Indian Medical Association, 75 per cent doctors have experienced violence at some point in their career. Thereafter, the concern expressed by the petitioner is exemplified by a case cited in the petition wherein irked by the death of his pregnant wife due to alleged negligence during operation by a woman surgeon at the government medical college hospital, her husband murdered the doctor at her clinic in 2012.Moreover, the petitioner contended that on account of attacks on resident doctors, IMA had gone on strike in Maharashtra in 2017. The petition states-“The public is becoming increasingly intolerant to a large number of social issues because of poor governance and vote bank politics. Laws to prevent violence against doctors do exist but they need to be made more stringent and implemented properly. It is submitted that, no doubt, in 19 States, there is specific law in this regard. With effect from April 28, 2010, the Respondent No. 8 has brought into effect the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act, 2010, running in just nine Sections.”Apart from directions for formulation of guidelines, the petitioner has also suggested constitution of a committee of experts to look into the definition of medical accident and possibility of covering Medical Accidents with suitable insuranceAdvocate Nitin Deshpande appeared on behalf of the petitioner.
