The «boxes» house is a rehabilitation of a ground floor house, with a contiguous garden, located in Largo de Carnide in Lisbon, Portugal. The project reinterprets the idea of patio-house, both the Mediterranean vernacular typology and the Mies van der Rohe’s modern conception, and the informal domesticity and constructive simplicity of the Case Study Houses, that we found developed by Inaki Abalos in the idea of the “pragmatist house” in his book “The Good Life”. On the other hand, the existing urban context, the specific configuration of the house, and the new program required, demanded a conceptual research of the complex and ambiguous relations between interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGInitially we tried an approach closer to the recovery of the existing building. But the abandoned and degraded condition of the building and the pre-existing spatial organization – central longitudinal corridor, with public areas facing the square to the North, and private and service areas facing the garden to the South – demanded a more hands-on approach. Reversing the previous logic of the internal spaces, the project redefined the whole interior, intensifying the relationship with the garden and the best exposure. The project subtracts a courtyard in the existing building and adds a glass pavilion in the garden, with an usable roof, allowing a more extended and fluid disposition of the public areas of the house. With this we achieved a good natural light and spatial openness in the existing house and an open and transparent relationship between the new living room and the garden. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe functional organization is structured by the material boxes, that accommodate the private program, making the public space the negative of its placement in space. If, on the one hand, we developed a dynamic and flexible conception of space, through the use of mobile elements, on the other hand, we neutralized the transitional spaces between private and public areas – here reduced to the plane of the doors hidden in the boxes – stressing the sudden changes of environment through the differentiation of materials and the use of colour, somehow reminiscent of what we watched in The Cook, the thief, his wife and her lover by Peter Greenway.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessHotel + Spa in Gdynia / Igor BrożynaArticlesTrimo Urban Crash 2011: Opening of the Winning Life StandArticles Share Year: last_img read more

Racovita House / Corina Dindareanu

Bogdan Ionita, Dynasty VDB srl,Architect In Charge:Corina DindareanuCity:BucureștiCountry:RomaniaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Cosmin DragomirText description provided by the architects. The building is located in a neighborhood of courtyard houses, a mix of volumes and styles where 4-5 storey interwar buildings can be seen next to modest ground floor longhouses. Each of them expresses sincerely in its formal aspects the time when it was built as well as its residential function, which is also the aim of the new construction. The plot is situated in the central area of Bucharest, in a protected urban zone. The project is a private commission for a single family house, nevertheless even in the smallest interventions there is a part of the project that concerns the insertion of a new piece in the urban fabric that we have to deal with. In this case the building was visually very present in the intersection of Mantuleasa and Dimitire Racovita street, and the volume attempts to respond to this situation. The street façade is more “opaque” responding to the north-western orientation, but the building opens gradually as it evolves towards the courtyard area: the side façade features the entrance, as in all the typical longhouses in this area, mirroring the neighboring house, while the backyard façade opens completely to embrace the green space of the garden.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe house consists of a compact volume of 11m height (height regime being at least 10m max. 15m), with ground floor, 1st and 2nd floor (partially) facing the street, similar in size to the adjacent buildings, and a lower body (only ground floor) with a light metal structure and sliding glass walls, which along with the surrounding pergolas allows the living room to merge with the garden.Save this picture!SectionA narrow zone of the house next to the dividing property wall gathers in a 2m wide band all the services: bathrooms, kitchen, storage, installations.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Cosmin DragomirFollowing the principles of sustainability, for minimal energy waste the use of a ventilated façade was a priority from the very beginning. Wood was chosen as a low environmental impact material, as well as an envelope that ideally combines the environmental requirements with the aesthetical ones, being a warm, domestic, traditional material suitable for residential function. The same wood finish was also used inside the house to emphasize the access zone and vertical movement (using vertical ladders identical to those on the facade) and also as a floor finish. For the flooring in bathrooms, kitchen, and the lower living area, natural stone was used, the same as outside, to obtain the continuity of this interior with the outdoor terrace and the garden.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirSave this picture!Facade DetailSave this picture!© Cosmin DragomirControversy may be inherent when acting in a protected urban area: the project intends to enrich the fabric of this part of the city with a new building that aesthetically expresses its residential function in a contemporary way, yet establishes a dialogue with the older neighboring houses, with the urban space created at the intersection of the streets, with the adjacent courtyards that merge with garden of the new house,Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirProject gallerySee allShow lessFOM Hochschule Building in Düsseldorf / J.

Sonardyne delivers Fusion 2 remote operation first

first_imgSonardyne surveyors based in the UK were able to remotely access and operate the Fusion 2 survey Sonardyne delivers Fusion 2 remote operation first. (Credit: Sonardyne.) Underwater technology company Sonardyne has successfully provided remote Fusion 2 survey operations capability on a live subsea construction campaign in the US Gulf of Mexico.Using its new Remote Operations Access Module (ROAM), Sonardyne surveyors based in the UK were able to remotely access and operate the Fusion 2 survey and construction software onboard Subsea 7 vessels in the Gulf of Mexico.By using the ROAM, potential limitations on operations posed by international travel restrictions were mitigated and the decision to upgrade from Fusion 1 to Fusion 2 was de-risked.Fusion 2 streamlines offshore field development operations by reducing the time and capital expenditure needed to undertake survey and construction tasks. It combines traditional Long BaseLine (LBL) and inertial navigation system (INS) techniques in one, unlocking significant benefits, not least being able to perform real-time simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) calibration of sparse seabed transponder arrays. Real-time SLAM calibration capability means far less hardware has to be deployed on the seafloor, significantly reducing vessel time, environmental impact and equipment inventories.ROAM is a rugged, portable communications link in a box which can operate over satellite or any other available network, such as 4G/5G and vessel Wi-Fi, providing secure access between Sonardyne engineers and any vessel needing remote expert assistance.The remote operations service was provided this summer during a deep water campaign on the Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the US Gulf of Mexico. Subsea 7 onboard surveyors were able to undertake remote training in Fusion 2 prior to deployment. Then, using the ROAM, Sonardyne surveyors working onshore in the UK were able to work shifts alongside their counterparts onboard the vessel in Fusion 2, supporting live positioning operations and taking secure control if required.

BAVO and Feminist United invite students to discuss catcalling culture with ‘Don’t Call Me Pumpkin’

first_imgAs Halloween approaches and the end of domestic violence month nears, the Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO) hosted Don’t Call Me Pumpkin, an event co-sponsored by Feminist United that encapsulates the two. The event encouraged students to initiate discussions about catcalling while they painted pumpkins.“Don’t Call Me Pumpkin is an event where everyone can come in and have a conversation about catcalling,” senior Anne Nowalk, treasurer for Feminist United, said. “That is something that is so important, especially around Halloween when people are wearing costumes. We’re able to open up a dialogue about [catcalling] before Halloween begins while doing something fun that everyone enjoys, which is painting pumpkins.” Courtney Driscoll BAVO and Feminist United hosted ‘Don’t Call Me Pumpkin’ in the student center, inviting students to carve pumpkins and discuss catcalling culture.Senior and student advisory committee (SAC) member Courtney Driscoll said Don’t Call Me Pumpkin is “an event to give awareness for catcalling, which is also known as street harassment.”“It’s basically a place where we can come celebrate Halloween [and] paint pumpkins, but also give awareness on catcalling, what it is and ways to react to it appropriately and safely,” Driscoll said.The event started by defining the act of catcalling. It then featured students who felt comfortable sharing their own experiences and how they personally reacted to the harassment. The discussion was followed by tips on how to react to future catcalling.“I think an event like this promotes a safe environment to come and interact with other students while we’re promoting awareness for catcalling, sexual assault, stalking and sexual violence as a whole,” Driscoll said. “We’re doing that but also creating fun events where you can interact with other students.” Catcalling is easy to shrug off because it’s often regarded as “something funny” or a joke, Nowalk said, when in reality it’s sexual harassment.“Both women, men, and non-binary people do not deserve to be catcalled or objectified by what they wear, how they walk, or their appearance,” Nowalk said. “And unfortunately that’s still something that is so normalized in our society, so having this event where we’re able to have a dialogue about this is extremely important for our community.”Nowalk said the importance of events like this for the Saint Mary’s community is not lost on her.“I think [it] is extremely important that individuals can come here whether or not they’re involved with BAVO or involved with Feminist United because the subject is something that everyone can resonate with, whether you believe you’re a feminist or involved with BAVO,” Nowalk said. “It’s really good that the whole Saint Mary’s community can be involved and be ready to talk about these subjects.”The issue is particularly pertinent to Saint Mary’s, Driscoll said.“I think an event like this is important because it gives awareness to issues that we as women in an all women’s college experience and will sadly experience, if not already, in the future,” she said.Nowalk said events such as Don’t Call Me Pumpkin start important discussions on campus.“Events like these mean for the community that students are able to speak about things that they may have been uncomfortable talking about with others, creating a friendly atmosphere where people can feel the need to speak up when they want to, with the comfort that they have and the bravery they have,” Nowalk said.Tags: BAVO, catcalling, Don’t Call Me Pumpkin, Feminist United, pumpkin carvinglast_img read more

Despite GM strike, October jobs see gains

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Despite a General Motors strike that depressed the month’s numbers, October’s “job report was a solid one which supports [last] week’s Fed decision of a hawkish rate cut,” said NAFCU Chief Economist and Vice President of Research Curt Long. October saw 128,000 jobs added, and the September and August gains were revised up by 44,000 and 51,000 jobs, respectively.“Job gains were above expectations and the service sector is growing, but wage growth remains slow,” Long added. “More positive revisions of past months’ numbers is a good sign…The labor force participation rate rose to its highest point since 2013, but modest wage growth suggests there is further room to run for the labor market.“[Federal Reserve] Chairman [Jerome] Powell indicated this week that there is a high bar to clear for any further interest rate moves, whether easing or tightening. The labor market will continue to improve into 2020, providing a sturdy buffer against recession,” Long concluded. continue reading »last_img read more

Global T20 Canada shifts to City of Brampton

first_img… last year’s runners-up West Indies B pull outBy Frederick HalleyTORONTO, Canada – The inaugural runners-up in last year’s Global T20 Canada will be a no-show when this year’s tournament bowls off here on July 25.According to a release from the organisers, West Indies B, who lost to the Chris Gayle-led Vancouver Knights in last year’s final played at the Maple Leaf Cricket Club (MLCC) ground, will not be participating in the annual showpiece.Tournament director Jason Harper did not give any reason for the non-participation of West Indies B but told reporters that an unnamed franchise will replace the regional side.West Indies B’s withdrawal can be seen as a major surprise after Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Canada “agreed to generate a new expanded partnership in the forthcoming months that will see more collaboration and participation of players and administrators in cricket, at CWI and Cricket Canada events,” a recent joint release from the two bodies pointed out.The release followed a visit by Cricket Canada president Ranjit Saini to Antigua where he was hosted at a dinner meeting by CWI president Ricky Skerritt then met with Chief Executive Officer Johnny Grave to update the existing Memorandum of Understanding, “designed to strengthen partnerships between both cricket organisations.”The organisers also announced that the tournament has been shifted from the MLCC ground in Mississauga to a new venue in the city of Brampton but the exact location is still to be determined.The release pointed out that ‘after completing its inaugural season in King City in 2018, Bombay Sports Company Ltd formally Mercuri Canada, the league organisers evaluated the impact of hosting the event in a more central location and listened to the feedback of the cricket fans.”The organisers further disclosed that “in collaboration with the City of Brampton and Mayor Patrick Brown the decision was taken to move the 2019 edition to west of Toronto and into the heart of the cricket-loving community from July 25 to August 11, 2019.”A staunch cricket fan, Brampton’s mayor Patrick Brown was delighted that his city will be playing host to the mega event. “As a healthy and safe city where cricket is especially popular, Brampton is an ideal location for this renowned event. We invite local, national and international audiences to attend what is sure to be a thrilling tournament this summer.”According to Mayor Brown, “Brampton has the biggest cricket fans in Canada. Just a few weeks ago we saw the Indian Premier League final and fans in Brampton stayed up to the early hours to watch the final. That’s how passionate our fans are.”Mayor Brown further added, “The City of Brampton has committed to more cricket infrastructure development. Currently two existing venues are getting lights and we are in discussions on the feasibility of a multi-purpose complex that includes a cricket stadium.”Tournament director Harper disclosed that “to date almost 1 100 cricketers from across the globe have registered for our player draft. This shows that Canada is a preferred location for the world’s best players and is a sought-after destination.”Toronto Nationals, Montreal Tigers, Edmonton Royals, Winnipeg Hawks and Vancouver Knights are the teams confirmed to date and they will be battling for US$500 000 first prize.GT20 Canada also announced the launch of a mascot contest. The contest is open to the general public and will be on its social media and website until June 30. The winner of the contest will receive a flight for two to Europe with a three-night stay at a hotel.last_img read more
