Our work is the materialization of a housing project within a proposal of two houses in the El Quimilar neighbourhood, on the outskirts of the city of La Plata. Resolved at the same time, the premise aimed to achieve an architecture with identity, which despite being an investment project, did not lose architectural quality.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaránRespecting the logic of an overall structure, it was decided to generate two units that were different and isolated from each other, thus achieving their individuality and the optimization of the resulting free space in each one of them. Promoting privacy and good sunlight are particularities that, many times, houses lose when they are coupled or when typologies are repeated. For this reason, the focus was placed on these questions, taking these characteristics as preferences of a user that, although indefinite, may be characteristic to this type of urbanization far from the urban area.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaránSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Luis BarandiaránThe optimization of resources and of the built space directed the guidelines towards a compact two-level architecture, which is evident in the resulting image, but incorporating intermediate spaces that guarantee privacy, the necessary sieve of light and visuals, and allows vertical connections in the house.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaránAn introverted top floor establishes filtered relationships with the exterior, cut out by the concrete block, giving rise to the development of the most private functions. The more extroverted ground floor seeks to break the limits established by its roof to give freedom to the most public activities. The floorplan of the ground floor extends and escapes from the pure prism of the upper floor, articulating uses, assembling accesses, directing expansions and visuals, establishing perceptual limits that exceed the built material (the carpentry), thus expanding the spatial perception of the interiors.Save this picture!Section ASave this picture!Section BDespite being a small house, the project strategies try to generate a contribution to the user’s living experience, generating environments of maximum comfort.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaránProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity of Waterloo Engineering 5 and 7 / Perkins&WillSelected ProjectsPaquidermo Building / Martin DulantoSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952281/dos-casas-quimilar-s-plus-s-arquitectas Clipboard Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Chaos Group, Adobe Systems Incorporated, Alucam, Casa Brea, Ceramicos La Plata, DAMITECH, Hormigonera platense, La Industrial, Miksa, Sanicentro, Trimble Navigation Houses “COPY” Area: 110 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architect: CopyAbout this officeS+S arquitectasOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCity BellOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on November 30, 2020Cite: “Dos Casas Quimilar / S+S arquitectas” [Dos Casas Quimilar / S+S arquitectas] 30 Nov 2020.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has asked the regulatory authority to adjudicate upon at least one or two show-cause notices issued for non-compliance, before the next date of hearing. The order has come in a plea moved by Paytm seeking a direction to be issued to TRAI as well as to various telecom operators to ensure compliance with the TCCCPR Regulations. It is the case of the Petitioners that non-compliance with the guidelines have led to rise in the cases of unsolicited commercial calls and SMSs sent to customers to commit online fraud and phishing. While pulling up TRAI for lack of compliance with its own regulatory framework, the court said: ‘These regulations were issued in 2018, why haven’t you taken action against a single entity for non-compliance? What are you waiting for, why are you so shy in taking the action? Every time you come up with one excuse or the other. You take action on the show cause notice issued to at least one or two entities, others will automatically toe the line.’ The court further informed TRAI that it doesn’t expect the body to investigate frauds. It only expects TRAI to create a telecom regulatory framework that reduces the possibility of committing online frauds. Today, appearing for the Petitioners, Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave argued that an outer-limit should be fixed for TRAI to ensure that all entities register their headers under the said regulations. Mr Dave further argued that TRAI should be directed to issue show-cause notices to the non-complying entities and take action against them. He said: ‘TRAI has itself stated in its affidavit that more compliance needs to be made with the 2018 Regulation. Despite having adequate powers, why isn’t TRAI taking any action against the erring entities.’ Appearing for one of the telecoms, Senior Advocate Dayan Krishnan argued that a deadline is already in place beyond which unregistered entities can’t operate. Appearing for TRAI, Mr Arjun Natarajan argued that TRAI is taking action against non-compliance by issuing show cause notices. He further informed the court that 1.62 lac headers have been registered as of September 18. ‘As a same entity can have multiple headers, looking at the number of registered headers is not sufficient to evaluate progress made in ensuring compliance with the regulations’, Mr Natarajan argued. While granting time to TRAI to submit an affidavit to show action taken against some entities, the court noted that it expects the regulatory body to adjudicate on the show-cause notices issued to some of the entities for non-compliance.

Mark Makela/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — A juror on Bill Cosby’s retrial said it was the comedian’s own words that made him sure beyond a reasonable doubt that Cosby was guilty.“It was his deposition, really,” Harrison Snyder, 22, said of what ultimately made him come to the conclusion Cosby was guilty. “Mr. Cosby admitted to giving these Quaaludes to women, young women, in order to have sex with them.”Cosby, 80, was convicted on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault last Thursday. Snyder was among the seven men and five women that came to the conclusion that Cosby was guilty, after spending a little over 12 hours deliberating.The conviction came approximately 11 months after a mistrial was declared in Cosby’s first trial, after a jury failed to reach a verdict.“Some have said that I made the right decision, and some people have said that they still think that he’s innocent,” Snyder said.He added, however, that he tells those people: “If you were there, you would say the same thing. You would say that he’s guilty.”Before the trial, Snyder said that he was largely unfamiliar with the actor, who earned the nickname “America’s Dad.”“I really didn’t know a lot. I knew he was an actor,” Snyder said. “I knew that he did ‘The Cosby Show.’”Snyder said he never watched the show, adding: “I’m a little too young for that.”The juror added that he believed Andrea Constand, one of Cosby’s main accusers who said the actor drugged and sexually assaulted her, when she testified against Cosby.“There were doubts in my mind because there were inconsistencies,” Snyder said of Constand’s testimony.He added that Dr. Barbara Ziv, the psychiatrist who also testified at Cosby’s trial, told them that it is “not uncommon for them to have inconsistencies.”“So I don’t think it really played a role in my decision that there were inconsistencies,” he added.Snyder said hearing Cosby say in his own words that he gave drugs to other women was stronger in his eyes than the words of the five other women who testified against him.“In the deposition, he stated that he gave these drugs to other women,” Snyder said. “I don’t think it really necessarily mattered that these other five women were here, because he said it himself. That he used these drugs on other women.”Snyder said he doesn’t believe the race, age or gender of the jurors played a role in the outcome of the trial.Moreover, while many speculated that the #MeToo movement loomed large and perhaps swayed the jury in the Cosby trial, Snyder said he doesn’t believe it played a role in the jury’s decision at all.“I didn’t really even know about the #MeToo movement,” he said.“I really only found out about after I got home,” he added. “Then I looked online to see what everything was.”The jury was largely on the same page when it came to arriving at the guilty verdict on all three charges, according to Snyder.He added that he has “no doubt at all” that they came to the right conclusion.Cosby’s attorneys say he plans to appeal the verdict.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
