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?

The project is a climatically efficient home rooted in the cultural context of India, which is the result of several iterations and explorations through a continuous design process. The house is built on a West facing site, with a remarkable old Bead tree, commonly called ‘Manjadi’, right at the entrance. This leguminous tree with a rough textured bark, bright polished red seeds and vibrant green leaves inspired the project, from the inception of design.Save this picture!© Redz PhotographySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Redz PhotographyIt has an open plan with freely flowing spaces and connected volumes to overcome the limitations of a linear foot print. The green court and water garden added for passive cooling, acts as an open to sky, family space protected from the harsh tropical weather. The interior of the house is defined by an interplay of light, darkness and colors. The master bedroom on the first floor opens to a linear balcony with a sliding wooden partition, for protection from the afternoon heat. It also has a weathered steel jalli on the outer façade, with an intricate water cut pattern, that filters the twilight sun. It resembles a lantern at night, paying homage to the rich craft heritage of India. The kitchen is a more utilitarian version of a traditional Asian kitchen, in pastel shades.Save this picture!© Redz PhotographyThe color palette displays a sharp contrast of earthen tones with different hues of blue, accentuated by a combination of warm and white lighting. Both the exteriors and interiors show hints of the magical blue, in varying shades. The landscape design for this house introduces varying colors and textures to the native lush green flora of the tropics. The plants are individually picked to create a unique sustainable combination, that requires minimal maintenance.Save this picture!© Redz PhotographyAnyone who has spent their childhood roaming the green and verdant landscape of rural Kerala would have fond memories of collecting the seeds of Manjadi tree that resembles rubies. The wild beauty of these seeds, combined with their relative rarity made them coveted objects to kids. This tree also forms an integral part of the cultural landscape of India depicted in many folktales and stories. This subtle addition of nature inspired aesthetics, has transformed a contemporary utilitarian house into a tropical living space, with a unique Indian identity.Save this picture!© Redz PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessSeoho-dong Residence / a round architectsSelected ProjectsSuccah by the Sea Temporary Outdoor Exhibition / Office FeuermanSelected Projects Share India “COPY”last_img read more

In the past 12 days since the show the charity has received donations of 12,000 knitted baby hats.The woolly hats are needed to help save the lives of newborn babies, over one million of whom each year do not survive beyond their first day of life. The hat helps prevent a dangerous drop in body temperature, which can make babies prone to catching pneumonia.Campaigning knitters are being asked to fill in an action card which Save the Children will send to Gordon Brown asking him to prioritise saving children’s lives.Paul O’Grady will be talking more about his involvement with Save the Children’s campaign on this Friday’s show (11 April).He said: “If something as simple as a knitted hat can help to save a child’s life then we should all get knitting!

Stamp pricing error to net Action for Children up to £60,000

first_img A pricing error by Royal Mail will see up to £60,000 go to its charity partner Action for Children.Last week, Royal Mail announced increases in the prices of First and Second Class stamps from 25 March. These will see the price of a First Class stamp rise by 3p to 70p and the price of a Second Class stamp by 3p to 61p.However, the rise in Second Class stamp prices breaches Ofcom’s current price cap of 60p, which will remain in place until 1 April. The cap will then rise to 65p, and then in line with the annual CPI rate of inflation until April 2024.Royal Mail has said the price changes are necessary to ‘help ensure the sustainability of the Universal Postal Service’ but said the error was inadvertent and apologised once it realised it had gone above the price cap. It has announced that it will donate the extra money this error brings in – expected to be around £60,000 – to Action for Children. Action for Children has been Royal Mail’s charity partner since 2017.

Haitians protest U.S. treatment

first_imgThroughout the world, Haitian communities on Jan. 12 commemorated with grief and anger the eighth anniversary of the catastrophic 2010 earthquake that devastated their homeland.There was grief because tens of thousands of people had lost their lives. A million and a half had their homes destroyed. More tens of thousands were injured. Many still can be seen hobbling through the streets of Port-au-Prince.There was anger because the United States ruling class once again had used a catastrophe to invade Haiti at a time when United Nations forces occupying Haiti were in disarray. The Pentagon seized control of its air and sea ports, managing relief supplies that flowed into Haiti contributed due to  worldwide solidarity over this catastrophe.In anger also because nongovernmental organizations and foundations diverted billions of dollars of aid that had been designated for the Haitian people.In New York, Dahoud Andre, of the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti (Komokoda), led a protest on the anniversary in front of the Clinton Foundation offices on Sixth Avenue. He charged that “the Clinton Foundation, which has an office in this building, stole $6 billion that was meant for the Haitian people.” Bill Clinton was appointed by the U.N. as one of the two top managers of all these funds.“The press over here has not said anything to condemn the Clinton Foundation, and we hope that today, the press will take this opportunity to ask the Clintons what happened to these billions of dollars,” he added.The day before the anniversary, Donald Trump used a filthy, racist term in a White House meeting to describe Haiti and African countries, according to members of Congress who were present. Clearly, the calloused and exploitive relation the U.S. ruling establishment has with Haiti is bipartisan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Human Rights Council should approve cyber-surveillance report

first_img Reporters Without Borders welcomes a report to the UN Human Rights Council on state internet surveillance, which makes clear the grave effects of government internet monitoring on human rights, especially freedom of information. Organisation Related documents Report of the Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Frank La RuePDF – 537.76 KB June 1, 2013 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Human Rights Council should approve cyber-surveillance report The report was issued by Frank LaRue, UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression. A Council vote on the report is scheduled on 3 June. Reporters Without Borders asks that the Council’s member states approve the report. The document marks the international community’s first effort to address the issue of internet surveillance. A vote of approval would lay the groundwork for international and regional limitations on government internet monitoring.The issue has been a major concern of RWB for nearly 10 years (read RSF submission for United Forum on business and Human Rights). The press freedom organization has repeatedly opposed state and private sector actions designed to monitor specific groups and individuals. A special report on surveillance of 12 March (the World Day Against Cyber-Censorship) explores the issue in depth.The special rapporteur’s report makes clear that security excesses linked to this form of surveillance are widespread. The use of technology that enables spying on citizens is not limited to authoritarian states, LaRue notes. He cites laws on terrorism, national security and organized crime that are on the books in many democratic countries – laws that authorize cyber-surveillance. These may be used to “target vulnerable groups,” including journalists, the report says. (Paragraph 52: “Journalists are also particularly vulnerable to becoming targets of communications surveillance because of their reliance on online communication”).In addition, the special rapporteur notes that journalists are especially exposed to the negative effects of surveillance, which may involve “violation of…human rights” (Paragraph 51).The rapporteur notes that the use of personal data affects personal privacy. For journalists and their sources, surveillance of their communications can have catastrophic consequences.Relevant laws now in place are in many cases out of date or inadequate and must be adapted to keep pace with technological change, the report concludes (Paragraph 50). The document recommends penalizing unauthorized surveillance and establishing judicial control of the practice (Paragraph 54), especially as it involves collecting and storing personal data.The report recommends that governments raise public awareness of the uses of communications technology and of the extent of surveillance mechanisms and legal authority.Notably, the rapporteur shares the concern expressed by RWB in its special report on surveillance over “new methods for conducting surveillance” (Paragraph 62), such as offensive intrusion (including trojans), as well as interception under legal authority.RWB commends LaRue’s call for states to assume responsibility on this issue They are obliged not only to respect rights, but above all to protect them against violations (Paragraph 76). The organization expresses its agreement with the rapporteur’s recommendations concerning the private sector: “States must take measures to prevent the commercialization of surveillance technologies, paying particular attention to research, development, trade, export and use of these technologies considering their ability to facilitate systematic human rights violations.” (Paragraph 97).These recommendations demand the attention not only of governments, but of companies (internet service providers, Web companies, producers and exporters of surveillance devices and software). For its part, RWB has demanded penalties for companies found to be involved in surveillance activities that endanger freedom of information.In that regard, RWB has also noted a trend cited by LaRue concerning internet filtering and censorship: “The burden of such policy is transferred to private intermediaries.” (Paragraph 46). The free press organization has repeatedly criticized the danger of the growing power of the private sector in the surveillance field. center_img Help by sharing this information RSF_en Newslast_img read more
