The house is located in a new community on the outskirts of the city. The project is meant to be a sober and orderly intervention; a pause within a visually noisy context. Once you walk in the interior of the house, one understands that the spacial sequence is defined by its structure. By structure we mean shape, space and movement. Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIn an attempt to reduce, but above all, keep control of construction costs, inexpensive modular elements were used –e.g. concrete blocks – as well as materials that do not require maintenance – e.g. exposed concrete and pre-painted metal panels-. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteConcrete blocks comprise the exterior envelope of the house with metal framing with gypsum board on the inside.  The metal framing hosts all of the pipes and wires without interfering with the CMU, while providing optimal thermal insulation. The project is laid over a grid of parallel walls which run from east to west, crossed by 4 beams in a north-south orientation. Walls define spaces and there are sloped slabs between beams.Save this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessWin a FREE Full Pass to the 2016 AIA National Convention from reThink WoodArchitecture NewsTranslucent Wood?

Fairtrade Fortnight in Limerick with emphasis on chocolate

first_imgLimerickNewsFairtrade Fortnight in Limerick with emphasis on chocolateBy Meghann Scully – March 4, 2020 154 Advertisement The plight of chocolate producers around the world is the focus for this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight in Limerick.Luis Miguel Garcia, a Colombian Fairtrade Coffee Co-op Manager gave a first-hand account of the importance of Fairtrade for his co-workers and their families to the assembled audience, which included the Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, head of Fairtrade Ireland Peter Gaynor and students from around Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Luis joined Fairtrade supporters from across Limerick and Ireland for the annual initiative, which features a programme of talks and community events aimed at promoting awareness of Fairtrade and Fairtrade-certified products.Young people from across Limerick city and county were also a focus of the event as they displayed their posters as part of the Fairtrade Poster competition, which they created to help change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves.Speaking at the event, Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Sheahan said: “The work of the Limerick Fairtrade Committee has been ongoing since Limerick became a Fairtrade City in 2005. More and more people are becoming aware of the need for ethical production of goods and become a lot more conscious of where products are sourced.”“I would also like to congratulate the entrants in the poster competition.  Through your efforts you are raising the profile of Fairtrade and the important work it carries out across the world.”Luis Miguel Garcia said: “It is very satisfying to know that all the achievements we get, goes directly for people that really need them. That is why I wake up every day to go and work with passion. We need to work as any other Company to be sustainable; for us sustainability is beyond economics; it’s also environmental and social. It´s just that Fairtrade give us the tools to get there.”Chairperson of the Limerick Fairtrade City Committee, Dolores O’Meara said: “The focus is on Chocolate this year. Cocoa farmers are struggling. The World Bank considers the extreme poverty level to be €1.72 per day. The majority of cocoa farmers earn just 90 cent a day. In order to make a proper living wage they need €2.35 a day. Cocoa farmers get just 7% from each bar of chocolate that we buy.”“They need to get a better price for their cocoa beans and to sell more under Fairtrade terms. Fairtrade guarantees them a minimum price for their beans and it also gives them an extra payment called a Premium which can be spent on community projects like wells, schools, literacy classes, updating their farming methods. They depend on us to be ‘conscious’ consumers and to look for the Fairtrade logo when we shop!”This event also saw the winners of the Limerick Fairtrade City Committee’s Poster Competition for schools and community groups being announced.Targeted at schools and community development groups, the Fairtrade Poster Competition 2020 winners are:1st Prize: Vivienne OBrien Scoil An Spioraid Naoimh, Roxborough2nd Prize: Emily Garrett Desmond College, Newcastle West3rd Prize: Lucy Greenslade, Milford NSSr Rosetta Gray Award: Scoil An Spioraid Naoimh, RoxboroughHighly Commended Medal Winners:An Mhodhscoil, Limerick: Lilian Harney, Rose Buckley, Aodhbha Wardle, Alice de Bláca, Michael Linnane, Liam RelihanSt Mary’s Boys’ NS Abbeyfeale: Shane Collins and Darragh LyonsKnockea NS: Ben O’Dwyer and Julianna RonanScoil An Spioraid Naoimh, Roxborough: Ruth Kirby, Isabella Slattery Coll and Hailey LoMilford NS, Castletroy: Beth Murphy and Faye JerbertDonoughmore NS: Aoibhinn Finnegan and Aimee May RyanCorpus Christi PS, Moyross: Kayla Vaughan, Sophie Butler and Emma DowneyOur Lady of Lourdes NS, Rosbrien: Shannon Stenson, Bernadette Corbett, Onuwa Amadi, Hassan Mamun, Hadia Diallo, Elizabeth Palkova and Caoimhe OkafarLaural Hill Coláiste FCJ: Faye Nic Annadh and Aisling Muir TAGSchocolatefairtradeFairtrade FortnightKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Facebook Twitter WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival center_img Previous articleAidan Corr’s Junior Rugby Round UpNext articleDeposit and return scheme to cut use of single-use cups Meghann Scully Linkedin WhatsApp Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League openerlast_img read more
