Already in the detailing phase. It was a very horizontal and full of aediculae house, containing independent suites for the 23 and 30 years old son and daughter. The project resembled very much Frank Lloyd Wright prairie houses, belonging to a place, with the mixed structure of Stone walls, steel, and wood. The owners ended up suddenly with the opportunity to acquire another beautiful condo lot in a forest area in Correas and we changed the address of the project adapting the program of construction.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresIn the new address, in order to insert new architecture in the beautiful existing context, we developed the project together with some reforms services, along 18 months in a very intuitive and collaborative process with the owners, so typical of reforms. Three original suites were preserved and enlarged and a new external master bedroom was created. A new living/dining/playing room with integrated kitchen, home theater, and varanda is the central space of the project, with its customized dining table and picturesque wood materiality. There were created also aediculae such as an open and covered pavilion bar containing barbecue and pizza oven, an ofurô pavilion, fitness room pavilion, workshop/barn, two running water natural pools, inserted in the local river that crosses the land.Save this picture!© Anita Soares18 months before, when we started projecting their other house, in the other neighborhood, I started buying stones, pieces of reused wood, doors and windows from demolitions, rare and high-quality material acquired from different sources that are generally offered to me – people many times want to get rid of this kind of material because they don’t have where to store, where to deploy, or because of the human labour costs involved in restoring. At that same time, I finally could acquire(after 6 years trying) pieces of wood from a heavy engineering firm, that were used as floating decks for excavation and land moving machines in flooded areas.Save this picture!© André NazarethSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© André Nazareth I tried to buy them to deploy in my house years before, having realized the potentiality of the material, but could acquire only when the place where they were stored changed was sold. The pieces remained for a while exposed to weathering, gaining unique texture without compromising its resistance, because they are high-density hardwood: maçaranduba, garapa, Pau Brasil, ipê tabaco, cumaru, etc. After selection and cleaning of the pieces with bench saw, and a lot of sandpaper manual work, there were obtained 17m3 of high-quality material, in perfect conditions, which makes up large part of the structure of the Project, associated to other systems like metallic structure and sealed waterproof wooden floors deployed in the green roofs, in some parts waterproof concrete slabs, covered by green roof.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe concept was integrating architecture and landscape through the single-story solution and creation of aediculae spreading the constructed area in parts, resulting in a group of pavillions blended with the lush surrounding Atlantic Forest. The project respected local relief, boulders, and native pre-existing species. Save this picture!© Anita SoaresNatural materials like stone and wood were extensively deployed, non-reflective colors like English green were used for the metallic apparent pieces and moss green for the apparent parts of external masonry. Bulky pieces of hardwood in unusual formats(23x23cm or 30x30cm) were used in a great part of the structure, as much as the leftovers of the wood cleaning process, creating a wood omnipresence in most of the spaces. Some details like the entrance gate and the barn external cladding are also an example of recycled wood use.Save this picture!© André NazarethThe horizontality of the construction that allows views of surrounding mountains, the creation of aediculae spread through the garden, integrating with the landscape, natural materiality, light roofing systems, transparency, previously developed concepts with the owners, emphasizing adequacy to the existing context. Influences; Zanine, Frank Lloyd Wright, Peter Zumthor, rural architecture from southern Brazil and the northwest USA. The piece of land is enormous(more than 35.000m2) but the existing house had small but very cozy suites, that were preserved. Save this picture!© André NazarethThe living room also with modest measures was enlarged creating a unified and functional space, integrated with the landscape. The house attachments/aediculae – fitness room, master bedroom, workshop/barn, garage, ofuro pavilion, were erected from foundation until finishing. The existing suites were preserved with minimum changes, the living room was extended with a bulky wood structure, creating the central space of the project, the living/dining/playing/home theater/varanda/kitchen room.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe differential was the integration with nature. Landscape design as an architectural element. Wood and stone materiality, the technicity of the spans, 10,5mts metallic beams in the garage, 3,80 cantilever structure in fitness room, and in pizza/barbecue metallic/wooden roof. The living room, kitchen, and home theater are one only unified space, with no partitions. Even though with modest measures, adapted from the existing house, the large wooden framed glass openings and the integrated space visually expands the domestic life towards the garden and the region magnificent landscape. Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThere is a comfortable and functional spatial sizing avoiding excess baggage for life. Wood deployed as the main element, in flooring, structure, windows and doors framings and roofs create a tactile and cozy atmosphere. In the corridors, closets and suites bathrooms, skylights were created making use of natural light.Save this picture!© André NazarethFrom a sustainability point of view, deploying reused stones and wood minimizes cut of trees and rocky quarries, investing in human labor rather than in extractive, being considered responsible and ecological use of material, according to LEED-GBC. Lightning: Indirect lighting throughout the house, in amber color tone, very comfortable for the eyes. Centennial trees lighting and different colors of light for each element, stones, water and trees/bushes. Light fittings designed in copper, harmonizing with wood structure and with the gardens The exploitation of topography, stones, native arboreal species. Save this picture!© André NazarethThe precise insertion of new species and the clever use of existing elements. Landscape designer: Lula Cancio – Floriverde Paisagismo Integration with nature, natural materiality, spreading the construction in parts, creating an interesting route through the luxuriant Atlantic Forest natural landscape, resulting in a light architecture that responds and belongs to place. From different points of the garden, you can see the famous mountains Mãe D’água, Pedra do Cone, Pico da Alcobaça, interacting with architecture. In general, the structure was made from wooden square logs (23x23cm and 30x30cm), and thick wooden planks, masonry parts received moss green acrylic painting or wooden slats cladding. New wooden windows framings with wide openings were made from Freijó.Save this picture!© André NazarethSustainability – reusing material, skylights in closets and bathrooms. Automation – irrigation, lighting cenarium and entrance gates. Wood, Stone, and steel were predominant, combined in many ways. Wood for the visual, animic and thermal comfort.Stone, for the perenniality, deployed in many external flooring areas, garden stairs, natural pools claddings, paths pavings, and some wall cladding. Sleek steel structures associated with wooden floor pieces, sealed with an asplalt blanket and covered by native epiphetae, in a green roof system that demands no soil, contrast with bulky pillars made from square wood logs. The wide span of the garage, the big cantilevered roof in the fitness room and in barbecue cover were possible due to metallic structure, “i” profile and square tubular pieces.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe interior project was very simple, following exterior materiality, adapting the owner’s existing furniture and works of art, some amazing pieces as Oscar Niemeyer armchairs and Katharina Welper’s paintings. Also to be mentioned are the room solid hardwood doors, some in Sucupira, some in Canela, very rare and high-quality species. Customized countertops, kitchen cabinet, dining table, fitness room’s sideboards, home theater’s sofa were made out of noble Brazilian scavenged wood, Peroba Rosa e Canela preta.Save this picture!© André NazarethProject gallerySee allShow lessTehran Skyscraper Combines Cryptocurrency Mining with Vertical Water ParkArchitecture NewsFlow Gallery / John Pardey ArchitectsSelected Projects Share House in Correas / Rodrigo Simão ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveHouse in Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura ArchDaily Photographs:  André Nazareth, Anita Soares Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Save this picture!© André Nazareth+ 46Curated by Matheus Pereira Share “COPY” Rodrigo Simão “COPY” Manufacturers: Antonio Bassous, Brennand, Chão de barro, Comercial Gerdau, Discafer, Edjur Marcenaria, Imperfer, Jorge Barbosa, Marcenaria Pica-pau, Sergio Loos, Serra tintas, Serraria Boa Vista, Serraria Itaipava, Temper master CopyAbout this officeRodrigo Simão ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPetrópolisBrazilPublished on June 03, 2019Cite: “House in Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura” [Casa em Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura] 03 Jun 2019.

The house overlooks the hamlet “La Place”, in Ayent, central Valais. The project takes root in the site’s memory, by reinterpreting the atmosphere and the materialization of its vernacular architecture. Like the barns of the hamlet, the house stands in a meadow that is left blank. Thus, the project frees itself from all boundaries. The grass grows according to the seasons and the livestock can come and graze. The main terrace is on top of the house, away from prying eyes and offering a stunning view.Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderSave this picture!East elevationSave this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe materiality of the project recalls the barns’ one, with a mineral cold-looking structure and a wooden roof opened on both gable ends. The roof of the house shifted lengthwise and free from any middle supporting structure, which seems to be floating over the house, which interrogates its primary function which is to shelter a house.Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe heritage of the local barns continues through the expression of the facades. They allow showing a base, the main body, and a roof, thanks to the treatments of the concrete and the wooden framework.

first_imgJustice walk for Tymar Crawford, July 15.Tymar Crawford, a 28-year-old Black man, was shot dead in his driveway by the Pensacola Police Department on July 5. Police claimed that Crawford attempted to attack them and they shot in “self-defense.” However, Crawford’s fiancee, Kimberly Henderson, and children, who were inside the house and witnessed the entire incident, say Crawford had his hands up when he was killed. The local media are, of course, promoting the narrative of the police. Arms of the capitalist state will do anything they can to maintain a grip on the people. People aren’t fooled: Tymar Crawford was murdered! There have been nonstop demonstrations, social media campaigns and rallies to win justice for Crawford. With the Pensacola Dream Defenders in the lead, other groups involved in organizing these actions have been the Answer Coalition, Social Trans Initiative (Strive) and Workers World Party. Over 600 people, mainly Black Pensacola residents, marched July 15 from Crawford’s front yard to the doors of the Pensacola Police Department. Chanting and waving signs, they shut down a lane of traffic on Cervantes Street, one of the busiest roads in downtown Pensacola. Behind those marching on foot was a steady procession of cars and trucks driven by Crawford’s family and friends.The police did not attempt to interfere with this powerful action, even when it was brought to their front door. At the station Henderson spoke about the outpouring of love and support she has received and the desire for justice for Crawford.  Dozens of cars driving by honked and waved support. A list of demands made by Crawford’s family was read: release the names of all cops involved in Crawford’s murder, terminate them immediately,  decrease the criminalization of marijuana possession and loitering, halt random police stops in low-income neighborhoods, create an all-civilian oversight committee with a police commission and civilian complaint office, hold quarterly police training by local organizations, and financial restitution to the family of Tymar Crawford to cover funeral costs. Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson already agreed to some of these demands, such as decreasing the criminalization of marijuana possession and loitering, but the police department has refused to release the names of officers involved in Crawford’s murder. Until all demands are met, protests and disruptions will continue. Tymar Crawford will have justice, or the city of Pensacola will have no peace!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia May 18, 2021 Find out more EthiopiaAfrica Receive email alerts Three journalists and six bloggers who have been held for the past five months were denied bail by a federal court in Addis Ababa yesterday after the prosecution argued that article 3 of the 2009 anti-terrorism law, under which they are detained, precludes release on bail. The defence said article 3’s bail prohibition does not apply because none of them has been individually charged with a specific crime under the anti-terrorism law. The defence also argued that article 3 violates the constitutional guarantee of the right to release on bail.The three journalists are Tesfalem Waldyes, Edom Kasaye and Asmamaw Hailegiorgis, and the six bloggers – all members of the Zone 9 collective – are Atnaf Berhane, Mahlet Fantahun, Befekadu Hailu, Abel Wabella, Natnail Feleke and Zelalem Kibret. One of the collective’s co-founders, Soliyana Shimelis, is being prosecuted in absentia.“The Ethiopian government is clearly trying to gag the media,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “These three journalists and nine bloggers have been held for nearly five months without being given the least guarantee of due process. The prosecution still has not said what precisely they are supposed to have done to justify the charges. We call for their immediate release because they have no place being in prison.”The prosecution accused them on 17 July of “organizing themselves into covert sub-groups to overthrow the government by contacting and receiving finance and training from two designated terrorist groups” – the US-based opposition group Ginbot 7 and the separatist Oromo Liberation Front (OLF). They are facing up to 15 years in prison under the anti-terrorism law.Restrictions on freedom of information have grown in recent months in Ethiopia, where at least six journalists are currently detained in connection with their work. A state broadcaster fired 20 employees because of their political views on 25 June, and the justice ministry announced on 5 August that it intended to bring criminal charges against six news publications for “encouraging terrorism and endangering national security.”Ethiopia is ranked 143rd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

A frequent speaker at industry events and conferences, Palim’s insights have appeared in various media outlets. Before joining Fannie Mae, Palim worked as an economic consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers and for LECG. He began his career as a fixed-income manager. Palim recently spoke with DS News about the economic factors impacting the U.S. housing and mortgage markets and what we can expect this year.What are some misconceptions first-time buyers may have about the homebuying process?It’s a failure on our part as an overall industry to better educate people. It is an infrequent transaction, in that it is an opaque transaction and a high-value part of consumer’s balance sheet, so you have those competing tensions. However, first-time homebuyers face the same knowledge challenges in getting ready to own and knowing what it takes to qualify. How have student loans and other debts impacted home purchasing power for millennials and other first-time buyers?What we’ve seen in that data over the years is that there’s this substantial number of people who attain homeownership and have student debts, so what appears to be going on is that it delays your ability to transition. Some households start out with student loans but are able to make sufficient income to carry that debt. They then also use debt to buy cars and are more likely to have a lower down payment when it comes time to buy, but they do attain home ownership. The key thing here is, are you actually improving your market skills through the debt and education you take on?What can we expect throughout the rest of the year, from a macroeconomic perspective?If you step back on our forecast, last year we were at 3% growth, and we’re forecasting 2.3% for this year, and a slowdown in 2020 to 1.8%. The key things to be watching for on the macro side is what’s happening with business confidence and investment, and then on the consumer side, consumer confidence and consumer spending.That’s something we are always watching for, but in this case, you have mixed policies, a dynamic affecting the economy. On the one hand, you have the Fed, which has paused its rate hikes, and we’re waiting to see what the lagged effects are for the interest rate increases that have already occurred. The most notable example of that would be car sales, which have been flat and are now going sideways. That’s an interest-rate-sensitive component of consumer spending. You’ve seen some deterioration in credit performance, so we’ll be watching closely to see what happens there.We’re also watching the housing sector closely, where the rise in mortgage rates has had a big impact last year on affordability. You’ve now had a substantial decline in mortgage rates, and we’re hopeful that will help continue to spur a recovery in the housing market during this spring and into the summer, given how weak it was over the winter. We also have some policy tension going on. On the one hand, you’ve got the Fed pausing; on the other hand, you have all the concerns around trade negotiations, growth outside the U.S., and what impact trade policy is having on growth around the world. What’s going on with various crises in Europe, what’s going on with growth in Asia, and are central banks around the world able to respond—by and large, they are not, because they already have negative interest rates. The global policy perspective is, along with the trade issue, a down-side risks for the outlook.How will the global economy impact the U.S. housing market?Contrast with where we were in the beginning of 2018, where we had pretty coordinated increases in growth across the globe, to where we are now, where we’ve seen over the winter months, and the second half of last year and into the winter, where we saw substantial slowdown in economic activity around the world. You even had a negative quarter in Germany, you saw softness in Italy, and you had Brexit, which continues to hang over the European outlook.Last year we were talking about, “Wow, when would other central banks follow the Fed and start tightening policy, or at least stop expanding their balance sheets.” By this spring, it had become a different world, and the European Central Bank has moved away from any loosening or any tightening. You still have negative rates across many bond markets, and in the short term, a number of central banks with negative interest rates. They are finding that that’s not stimulating growth in Japan or in Europe the way they’d hoped for. The U.S. economy has been, by far, the bright star in the global economy.How does that play back into the U.S. housing market? Part of the reason we’ve had the decline in mortgage rates since October is the global slowdown meant that the yield on 10-year government bond rates around the world have come down. The U.S. remains the highest yielding of all the major bond markets. So, as rates decline around the world, the U.S. bond market becomes very attractive and rates follow the rest of the world down.

A 3-judge Bench comprising of Justices NV Ramana, SK Kaul and BR Gavai decided to leave it to the discretion of the Government to take a call as to when it would be best suited to bring these people back, and refused to interfere. Pursuant to a notice on advocate Vibha Datta Makhija’s plea to evacuate distressed Indians who are stranded in US while their temporary visas were expiring, the Central government filed a status report apprising the Court of the measures being taken by them to ensure the well-being of the said Indians. The report outlined details of the nodal officers appointed by the Government for each region and highlighted the various measures undertaken by the embassy and consulates to help those stranded, in collaboration with some voluntary organisations that had stepped in. Referring to the report, Makhija expressed her appreciation for the work being done by the Government but implored the Court to see how worker stranded in US were in dire conditions and yet were being discriminated against (since the Government had managed to evacuate Indians from Wuhan, Italy and Iran earlier). “We have a list of 110 people in dire need of help. Helplines are there. Government has said they will consider evacuation on a case by case basis. Evacuations have been done. There needs to be fairness. Evacuations have been organised by Indian government to bring back Indian citizens.” Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Government, informed the Court the Court that evacuations had been conducted earlier, but they have been stopped internationally at this point. He submitted that the Indian Government would not be able to evacuate them right now, but were in talks to ensure that they are not in distress. Expressing their inability to order Indians to be brought back at this point, Justice Kaul stated that “they cannot be brought in no matter how much we want. Assistance is being given to them. They are spread across US.” Referring to the argument of discrimination in not evacuating certain citizens, the Court observed “we cannot do anything at this time. Don’t pitch it at a level which does not exist.” Refusing to interfere, the Court reiterated that these citizens could not be brought back and stated that they had been informed that the US government was extending visas in light of the global outbreak. Makhija attempted to throw light on how visa extensions would cost USD 500, equivalent to INR 35,000, but the Court enunciated that it could not control the decisions of another Government. It was concluded that “the court will not tell government to do anything in a particular manner. It’s a worldwide problem. Each country is doing their best. These are not matters for the Court’s intervention.” Noting that the Government’s status report evidenced their “proactive approach” towards the situation, the Bench disposed of the matter. However, liberty was granted to the Petitioner to make representations before nodal officers along with the Ministry of External Affairs within two weeks to enable the government to identify the exact situation of distress faced by the individuals and take appropriate measures.The order stated :”on a request made by the Petitioners, the learned Solicitor General submitted that a representation can be made regarding specific vulnerable people to the designated officers mentioned in Annexure-I of the list of officers attached with the Status Report filed by the Ministry of External Affairs, within two weeks.On such a representation being filed by the Petitioners, the concerned authorities are directed to consider the same on its own merits and take appropriate steps to ameliorate the conditions of those in USA.   With the above direction, the writ petition stands disposed of”.Petition for students in Moldova Apropos another plea filed by social worker Anvar Bapu, seeking airlifting of 400 Indian students from Moldova to Cochin, the Court recorded SG Mehta’s submission that it would not be possible to allow the prayer because of the current restrictions imposed by the Government, and refused to give any directions to them. The petitioner apprised the Court of Indian students being in isolation for a month and a half in Moldova where no cases of COVID-19 existed at present. It was also submitted that Air Moldova was willing to transport them back, but the Indian government was not giving the plane permission to land. “There is no problem in Kerala. We have medical facilities. This is a limited prayer to allow the plane to land”, pleaded the petitioner. The argument was rejected by the Court citing the Government’s decision to impose a complete travel ban. “The government has said no people will be allowed to come. The same thing has happened in case of students from UK/US. The government has taken a decision to not allow any flights or trains. How can we ask them to allow the plane to land? Government is not allowing international flights…Let them take a decision…As and when it’s feasible to bring them back it can be done.” With this, the matter was disposed of. Whenever the Government decides to allow flights, the Court added, “the petitioner is at liberty to make a request to bring the children back to the State of Kerala.The order stated :”In this petition preferred under Article 32 of the Constitution of India, the petitioner has prayed for a direction to respondent No.1 to make arrangements for expeditious repatriation of students stranded in Republic of Moldova to Cochin.Taking into consideration the restrictions imposed by the Government of India, learned Solicitor General submits that it is not possible in the present situation to allow such a prayer.”In view of the above, we are not inclined to give any direction to the Government of India in this regard.However, whenever the Government of India takes a call on allowing the flights, the petitioner is at liberty to make a request to bring the children back to the State of Kerala. Click here to download order (Vibha Dutta Makhija’s plea)Click here to download order (Anvar Bapu’s plea)Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
