The site for this single family residence is located immediately alongside the northern ridge of “El Cerro de Chipinque” in the Sierra Madre Oriental range in the state of Nuevo Leon in northeast Mexico. The house is configured to maximize views of the parallel ridgeline, as well as the dramatic peak, known as La Eme (“the M”), which terminates the eastern vista.Save this picture!© Phillip SpearsIn the configuration of the residence, interior and exterior spaces are defined primarily by vertical planes of concrete, sliding in and out of the house to define interior and exterior zones for living, exploring the themes of Transparency and Penetration.Save this picture!© Phillip SpearsSave this picture!© Phillip SpearsSecondary forms clad in thinly sliced black granite or contrasting white plaster express more solid and enclosed volumes. The texture and color of the granite allude to the visible rock peaks of the mountain range looming above. More monochromatic cut stone was used for flooring. Completing the palette of materials, warmer tones of wood are used inside and out which contrast with the coolness of the granite and concrete.Save this picture!© Phillip SpearsSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Phillip SpearsWhile the wood and stone components are largely expressed as simple cubic forms, the plasticity inherent in concrete is expressed and articulated with more complexity — forming portals, generating negative space, and framing views. The composition is an honest expression of materials, selected to provide a range of textures, and configured to provide a hierarchy of scale.Save this picture!© Phillip SpearsPassive solar design is employed to manage solar gain. Rain is harvested from the roof and stored for irrigation and decorative fountains. “Permanent” materials are used for lifecycle longevity, including a decay-resistant wood species on the exterior.Save this picture!© Phillip SpearsProject gallerySee allShow lessA Virtual Look Inside the Case Study House #3 by William W Wurster & Theodore BernardiArticlesPeople Are Sharing this Puzzle that Supposedly Tests Whether You’re “Smarter Than an…Architecture News Share Photographs:  Phillip Spears Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” CopyHouses•San Pedro Garza García, Mexico Projects Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” James Choate III Mexico Lead Architects: last_img read more

Recent detailed scientific studies show that because of dropping wind, solar and battery prices, President Joe Biden’s net-zero carbon goal can be accomplished far cheaper than feared in the past and with health benefits “many, many times” outweighing the costs, said Princeton University ecologist Stephen Pacala, who was part of one study at Princeton.last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Eco-Business:Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) will henceforth reject requests for loans for new coal projects, the bank’s head, Tadashi Maeda, was reported saying on Wednesday, making it the third Japanese financial institution to signal a shift away from the world’s dirtiest fossil fuel this month.The government-run firm, which has lent billions to coal developers over the years, will no longer accept loan applications for new coal-fired power stations, said the governor in an interview with Japanese business magazine Diamond Online, explaining that assessments of coal investments took too long, which could lock countries into energy technology that could be outdated by the time a decision was reached.For now, JBIC’s coal exit remains a mere statement, as it yet needs to be enshrined in a formal policy, said Julien Vincent, executive director of Australian non-governmental organisation Market Forces, which has been campaigning for Asian banks to ditch coal. It is still unclear when such a policy will be released.One of the world’s top providers of subsidised government capital for coal power development, JBIC has handed out US$14 billion in loans for nearly 30 new coal power plants, helping add at least another 37.7 gigawatts of new polluting coal power capacity from Mexico to Indonesia, data by Market Forces shows.But it is not alone. Major lenders in Japan, including Mizuho, Mitsubishi UFJ and Sumitomo Mitsui, have been the biggest coal financiers globally. In the five years since the Paris climate accord was signed, they have poured US$282 billion into fossil fuels, revealed a report released last month. However, this also puts Japan in a unique position to drive Asia’s shift away from dirty coal. Earlier this year, the nation’s environment ministry said it would review its export policy on coal-fired power stations in response to global criticism over the government’s backing of coal projects in countries like Indonesia and Vietnam.“If Japan puts an end to exporting coal power and focuses exclusively on catalysing renewable technology, South Korea and China may be under tremendous pressure to change due to stresses on their balance sheets,” said Sara Ahmed, an energy finance analyst for the US-based Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.[Tim Ha]More: JBIC becomes third Japanese bank in a month to signal move away from coal Japan Bank for International Cooperation takes first steps away from coal-plant financinglast_img read more
