While persian carpets are world renowned, bricks have a strong relationship with iranian historical architecture. in this building, ‘the house of 40 knots’ by habibeh madjdabadi and alireza mashhadimirza, the two entities are fused into a contemporary façade that appears as a collection of intricately interwoven modules.Save this picture!© Habibeh Madjdabadi + Alireza Mashhadimirzain textile factories, two people work together to make a carpet – one reads the instructions while the other sits behind the scaffold and makes the braids. the architects elaborate by saying, ‘the one who reads the instruction does not necessarily know how to knit. she reads the instructions, usually with a rhythm, and like a song: two reds, a yellow below, two blue . . . those instructions are usually drawn on checkered papers.’ the handmade exterior of this residence is also made using a similar system. one craftsman reads and the other places raised, filler, and hollow bricks in corresponding supporting bars between L profiles. due to this technique, there is no need for phase drawings and the construction sequence can be performed through a series of simple, localized labors. workers can lay down the clay blocks row by row without having to understand the concept of whole façade.Save this picture!© Habibeh Madjdabadi + Alireza MashhadimirzaSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Habibeh Madjdabadi + Alireza Mashhadimirzaas the result is thought to be one unified object, madjdabadi and mashhadimirza intentionally avoided designing different components separately. instead, the aesthetic is defined by a series of loose rules that allow both sides of the repeated units to be visible. from the outside, they appear as an integrated texture, and from the inside, they appear as window parapets embedded into the masonry. also, a standard cube geometry is used at various scales: in the protrusions of the outer surface, in planters of the fencing, and in shelves of the interior.Save this picture!© Habibeh Madjdabadi + Alireza MashhadimirzaProject gallerySee allShow lessBusiness Garden Štefánikova / Architekti Šebo LichýSelected ProjectsHanergy Renewable Energy Exhibition Center / TRIAD China Ltd.Selected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officehabibeh madjdabadi + alireza mashhadimirzaOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTehranIranPublished on May 28, 2016Cite: “House of 40 Knots / Habibeh Madjdabadi + Alireza Mashhadimirza” 27 May 2016.

first_imgYesterday I had a story about local baseball teams gearing up for their pennant push by signing up hot shots late in the season. Not only were these games always available for summer fun, many other bygone activities helped the summer months fly by. At least half of the area youth were connected to farms, so there was always the field work of summer, but also there were your local 4-H Fairs that usually occurred in July. Most churches had a summer softball league, but in those days it was usually limited to the male population. Sorry, ladies, Title IX had not come along yet. If you lived in a town or in a small city and you were old enough to work, you probably mowed lawns, babysat, or worked on a relatives farm. For those outside jobs, it was a lot of fun at the end of the job or at the end of the day to strip as many clothes off as you thought you could get by with and jump into some local creek, pond, or whatever body of water was available. Few of us farm kids ever thought about going to the city pool. If you were old enough to drive, there was always the local drive-in for an evening activity. I know a few of my buddies tried the alcohol route, but most of us were satisfied with soft drinks and ice cream. Thank heavens no one had invented a Game Boy, so we actually did most things out in the fresh air. The first day of school always became “who got the best tan through the summer?” Oh, for those lazy, hazy days of summer.last_img read more

first_imgDownloads:Letter to schoolsLetter to corporate organisationsDo things differentlyThe International Marketing Council of South Africa (Brand South Africa) today launched the Nation Brand ‘Legacy’ campaign, which aims to align the brand to South Africans’ unique culture, while simultaneously improving the country’s global competitiveness. The campaign will focus on the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ success by defining the values that make South Africans unique.  These values are then aligned with the Brand South Africa value proposition to change the backward view of legacy into a forward looking perspective that will define the way in which we behave.  This will ultimately contribute to the country’s rating in international competitive studies in that we don’t only just ‘write’ about ‘how’ citizens should behave, but actually influence the desired behaviour we want people to adopt.“The 2010 FIFA World Cup™ may be over, but its legacy remains,” said Miller Matola, CEO of Brand South Africa. The campaign identifies reasons why our nation is unique, from our sports teams to our children and renowned South African attitude. Founded on the South African brand values of Ubuntu, sustainability, possibility, diversity, innovation and creativity, it builds on the successful hosting of the tournament, which the organisation considers to have been delivered by the people of South Africa. “Our success was mainly about people – ordinary South Africans who came together to make the tournament the most successful in its history, though we cannot discount the incredible infrastructural development that contributed to it,” he said.The ‘Legacy’ campaign platform aims to leverage the momentum gained during the World Cup to continue to mobilise South Africans including business, political and civil society leadership. It also aims to entrench the principles of pride, patriotism and solid citizenship that have been established over the past year. Thus as South Africans put their souls into making the World Cup a success, the next six weeks will call on all to “Put your soul into it” again and again!Each Friday, for the next six weeks, South Africans will celebrate all the things that makes us who we are, the unique values displayed during the World Cup and enable us to be proud of our nation, culture and heritage. Themes include support the ‘Class of 2010’, do something different, our beautiful country and celebrate your South African heritage, with the events calendar available at, or provided below.“This year, we have come together as a nation united and flown the flag high. Now we need to keep it flying and remind ourselves how we made the event the most successful FIFA World Cup™ in history. We’ve always known we had it in us, now let us celebrate it,” said Matola. ”Put your soul into it.”“We will be providing platforms that will enable us all to continue to achieve and showcase our “South Africanness” to the world,” adding that it was the South African ‘can do’ attitude and commitment that was at the heart of the World Cup development, our successful hosting of the tournament itself and which will heavily inform our post tournament activity. Supporting ‘Class of 2010’ This week, the campaign focuses on supporting the Department of Education‘s ‘Class of 2010’ initiative. Matola said that with the countdown to final exams well underway, it is up to us to support our scholars as they prepare for their final examinations.Brand South Africa enables South Africans to formally pledge to help where they can. “Most importantly, we need to pledge to help learners realise how important their education is, but we can also give support by helping a scholar to write a study plan or assisting with revision,” he said.The pledge ( states, “We the people of South Africa, recognising the injustices of our past, honour those who suffered and sacrificed to bring knowledge and education to our youth. We will respect and protect the dignity of each child and stand up for justice. We sincerely declare that we shall uphold the rights and values of our Constitution, and promise to act in accordance with the duties and responsibilities that flow from these rights. Nkosi Sikelel’ i’Afrika.”Matola himself has pledged both his and Brand South Africa’s support for the Class of 2010. “My organisation has dedicated Fridays to distributing stationery to schools, donating 30 minutes of their lunchtime to teaching learners about Post-Matric career choices,” he affirmed. “What is your pledge to support the Class of 2010?  Visit to find out what you can do for a school near you.” Building a South African legacy South Africans offer fresh solutions to seemingly insurmountable challenges that face the world – just one reason why we are a truly competitive nation. “This campaign is significant because it fulfils a strategic communications objective for the Nation Brand, while providing us all with practical ways in which we can contribute to our country’s development,” said Matola.He encouraged people to tell, even show the world why you are proud to be South African. “We have so much in common and so much humanity to celebrate.”“There is no turning back, as we continue to define and showcase who we are as a nation to the world. We are a people who are proudly defined by Ubuntu, diversity, innovation and creativity. Our “South Africanness” undoubtedly opens up a lifetime of possibilities for us all,” concluded Matola. FridayTheme 27 August 2010 Support the ‘Class of 2010’ In the build up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, we stood together as a nation in support of our team and country. We learnt a valuable lesson, that together we can do anything we put our souls into. If you pledge that same support to your ‘Class of 2010’, you can give them all the inspiration and motivation they need to succeed, not only in their final examinations, but also in life.  3 September 2010 Do something different The 2010 FIFA World Cup™ marked a massive change in the way we saw ourselves and the way the world saw us. We proved our ability to succeed against all odds, to create a legacy to last a lifetime. This Friday, Fly the Flag for our ability to see things differently, to see challenges where others see obstacles and no matter what, to make a plan. Do something differently and acknowledge how each of us made the world see our country in a new light. Put your soul into it.  Instead of sending an email, pick up the phone Call an old friend Celebrate those who have made a difference in your community and join them Put a suggestion box up where people can share their ideas on how to do things differently  10 September 2010 Our beautiful country Thousands of new visitors experienced South Africa during the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ and went home with memories to last a lifetime. We impressed the world with our ability to unite for a common cause and create a legacy for our country and children. We now know what we can do when we stand together, so let’s do it again and make sure our country stays beautiful for generations to come. Fly the Flag this Friday for our beautiful country.  Host a recycling day. Ask everyone to bring in paper, glass, plastic and tins to be recycled and given a new lease on life. Plant a tree at home, at school, at your office or in a community space. Host a cleanup day around the office, your school or community.  24 September 2010 Celebrate your South African heritage We made the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ the most successful in its history. We hosted the world and we celebrated our nation. If we were asked how we achieved what we did, the answer would be easy – because we are South Africans. Fly the Flag today for our South African Heritage and celebrate our diversity as our source of strength and resilience. We are the soul of South Africa.  Have a braai and celebrate your South African Heritage on 24 September. Wear clothes reflecting your culture. Spend time with someone else from a different culture and learn about their customs.  About the International Marketing Council of South Africa (Brand South Africa)The International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC) was established in August 2002 to help create a positive and compelling brand image for South Africa. At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective. This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign.  There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It seems that over the past few years when it comes to the corn and soybean crops, Ohio has been no stranger to variation. Bill Mullen with Seed Consultants says that variation will also be seen within the field this year and much of it will depend on soil types and hybrid selection. He suggests that farmers need to check out their fields to see if an early harvest will be necessary.last_img
