This project deals with the degrees of relationship between the exterior and interior as its main idea. Variated exterior spaces, defined by the geometries of the house are generated, and create patios and transition spaces with exterior capsules existing as the smallest unit of definitive interior space. Save this picture!The second idea variable arises from the material in its capacity to be both a unit and a multiple as well as the generation of texture through repetition and large surface areas of wall and ground. In this way the concrete is cast with perforations or undulations and the floor planes in stone or paving tiles laid out over the ground. The shifting projection of shadow over these surfaces amplifies their quality. Save this picture!Formally, the house is composed of three volumes differentiated by function: public, private, and service areas. The circulation path, in the style of a promenade, begins at a ramp in the access patio, passing to an interior circulation whose double height gives structure to the constant relationship with the spaces and exteriors and generates a perception of transition through the different interior moments.Project gallerySee allShow lessCity Shortens Nouvel’s 53rd Street TowerArticlesAD Round Up: Public Facilities Part IIArticles Sharecenter_img San Damian house / DawSave this projectSaveSan Damian house / Daw Save this picture!+ 29 Share “COPY” Chile San Damian house / Daw Houses Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

It is the construction modification of a family house in Prague, which was completed and reconstructed several times as an originally recreational building from the 1930s for permanent residence. Considering these interventions, its stability was no longer sufficient. The fundamental decision was thus to complement and in general stiffen the construction with a steel corset. Another problem was the original mansard roof, which had a thickness of only 15 cm.Save this picture!© Aleš JungmannSave this picture!© Aleš JungmannSave this picture!© Aleš JungmannThe removal of the entire roof, which we decided for in the end, allowed not only a more effective resolution of the problem of the weatherproofing but also adaptation of the layout on the second floor above ground so that it met the demands of the investor. The second floor is also expanded by a new room in the space of the former terrace. The steel corset is not only a technical element; it is intended also as a trellis for climbing plants and consolidates the entire building in terms of the architecture. The whole corset is comprised of the same steel prisms welded from L profiles in a module of 1280 mm.Save this picture!© Aleš JungmannThis module made it possible to ideally preserve the existing openings of the retained part of the building. The masonry construction of the second floor from lightweight concrete blocks complements the bearing steel part and helps carry the new roof reinforced concrete slab, which will serve as a walkable terrace with a garden modification. Access to the roof directly from the garden is made possible by a service staircase, which is designed from the side of the building within the steel construction. The interior of the second floor leaves the concrete blocks and concrete ceiling visible.Save this picture!© Aleš JungmannSave this picture!Save this picture!Along with the supporting steel structure, all materials are therefore admitted in their natural form. This rough interior is complemented by mobile furniture made of birch plywood in the form of sleeping cells, cabinets that divide the rooms, and solitary furniture. An integral part of each room was the design of the curtains. Every family member chose his or her colour solution on the same selected theme. The interior and exterior of the building create a platform that will change over time.Save this picture!© Aleš JungmannProject gallerySee allShow lessMeet the Winners for the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of Mosul’s Al Nouri ComplexArchitecture NewsEqumenia Church in Floda / Kaminsky ArkitekturSelected Projects Share House in a Steel Corset / ŠÉPKA ARCHITEKTISave this projectSaveHouse in a Steel Corset / ŠÉPKA ARCHITEKTI Houses CopyAbout this officeŠÉPKA ARCHITEKTIOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergOn InstagramOn FacebookPraha-SuchdolCzech RepublicPublished on April 16, 2021Cite: “House in a Steel Corset / ŠÉPKA ARCHITEKTI” 16 Apr 2021.

first_imgIn December, all of Indonesia’s labor unions led a massive campaign for a much higher minimum wage.Minimum wages in Indonesia vary from province to province and even from city to city. They are set by a local committee consisting of business representatives, local politicians and union representatives, and then must be approved by the governor or mayor.Since Indonesia is a big country, around 250 million people, with a lot of industry, wage levels floored by a minimum are very important to millions of workers.One particular issue that has bothered the unions is that the formula for calculating the minimum wage ignores the cost of fuel; the government just raised fuel prices by 30 percent. The unions also feel the cost of phone service and refrigerators needs to be in the market basket.According to Bloomberg News, Jakarta Gov. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama approved a 2015 minimum wage of $219 a month, while unions want about $285 a month.Dedi Hartono, a worker on the Jakarta Wage Council, said at least 5 million workers will join rallies, including assemblies outside the offices of the governor and president, to protest this low minimum.According to press reports, 50,000 people marched through Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, in a militant display of popular anger.Outside of Jakarta, the situation was very mixed. Some regions saw the governor reject the pro-business levels of the wage board. Some regions saw solid successes for the unions and others not so much. But all over Indonesia, the workers responded to the call of their unions and were out in the streets by the millions.The website of the International Federation of Worker Educational Associations published a report from the Federation of Indonesia Metalworkers Unions showing the strength of the movement. In some factories, 70 percent of the production lines were stopped. The report adds that “12 workers [were] arrested and detained by police during the night. If last year we were dealing with thugs, this year our enemy is the police.”In 1965-66, after a military coup took the power from President Sukarno, a million Indonesians, mainly members of the Indonesian Communist Party and its progressive mass organizations, were slaughtered in an operation conducted by the Indonesian military and endorsed by the United States. It has taken a long time, but the progressive movement defending Indonesian workers has come back and is showing its strength in the streets.Read the 1965 pamphlet, “Indonesia: The second greatest crime of the century” at thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Foundation’s generous grant award will help ChapCare purchase and implement digital x-ray equipment and software at its Fair Oaks health center.“The Patron Saints Foundation is proud to make this important grant to ChapCare,” said Kathleen T. Shannon, Executive Director of The Patron Saints Foundation. “The purchase and implementation of digital x-ray equipment and software targets an identified need in the communities that ChapCare serves, to reduce barriers to receiving high-quality x-ray services.”Margaret B. Martinez, ChapCare’s Chief Executive Officer said, “ChapCare would like to express our deepest gratitude to The Patron Saints Foundation. The addition of digital x-ray services at our health centers will achieve increased access to this service for our patients, increased quality of care, and increased patient satisfaction due to enhanced x-ray services.”ChapCare’s ability to provide digital x-ray services is critical to improve the short-term health of its patients. It will also help fulfill ChapCare’s goal to enhance its technology infrastructure as it moves toward 2014 and the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act.About ChapCareChapCare was founded in 1995 by a committed group of community residents, city officials, and health care agencies to establish primary care health services for the low-income, uninsured residents in the Pasadena area. ChapCare began providing medical services in 1998 and dental services in 2001. Today, ChapCare is a network of HRSA-funded community health centers that has provided medical services to countless under-insured and uninsured residents of the San Gabriel Valley for almost 15 years. The organization operates 3 health centers in the Pasadena area, and a mobile van in the El Monte region. ChapCare provides over 54,000 primary healthcare visits annually to over 15,000 patients. ChapCare will open a new health center in the City of South El Monte in February 2013.About The Patron Saints FoundationThe Patron Saints Foundation evolved from the St. Luke Foundation which was a public charity created in 1979 to support the not-for-profit St. Luke Hospital located in Pasadena, California. In 1985, St. Luke Hospital was sold and became a for-profit hospital. At that time, the Articles of Incorporation were restated to allow the Patron Saints Foundation to take control of the assets of the St. Luke Foundation. These assets have been invested and now fund the activities of The Patron Saints Foundation.The Patron Saints Foundation is a private foundation that provides grants to public charities that improve the health of individuals residing in the West San Gabriel Valley through health care programs that are consistent with the moral and religious teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Foundation provides approximately $500,000 in grants annually.

first_imgToa55/iStockBy HALEY YAMADA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Colorado residents are facing emergency evacuations after explosive growth from a new wildfire, the latest of the state‘s growing infernos.The entire town of Grand Lake was forced to evacuate Wednesday night after the East Troublesome Fire grew six times in size to encompass over 125,000 acres west of Denver.“It’s pretty scary. Everybody I know, all of my friends, we got out,” said Grand Lake evacuee CarrieAnn Fain.The fire burned close to 6,000 acres within an hour, destroying an unknown number of structures. Grand County sheriff’s deputies went door-to-door to help evacuate the town quickly.“We got flame lengths jumping off the top of the ridges,” firefighter John Demaris told KMGH-TV.Grand County Sheriff Brett Schroetlin said during a press conference Thursday that it was the fire’s explosive growth that led to a “worst of the worst” case scenario.“We planned for the worst. This was the worst of the worst of the worst,” Schroetlin said on Thursday.Late Wednesday night, Schroetlin also addressed the community in a video message posted on the Grand County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.“Today has been an extremely, extremely challenging day for our community,” said Schroetlin, who praised first responders. “They made some incredible rescues, some incredible evacuations, and they worked here for you.”“Our community is Grand,” he added. “We are, without a doubt, and we’ll get through this together.”Fueled by dry, windy conditions, the fire crossed through Rocky Mountain National Park Thursday afternoon, forcing it to close. Under an eerie dark orange sky, Estes Park became the latest town to evacuate Thursday due to the approaching inferno.“Evacuate the area immediately and as quickly as possible,” an emergency message from the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office read. “Do not delay leaving to gather belongings or make efforts to protect your home or business.”The East Troublesome Fire is now the fourth largest fire in Colorado State history. Colorado’s largest fire ever, the Cameron Peak Fire, is burning simultaneously less than 12 miles away.Overall, seven fires are currently scorching across the Centennial State and strong gusty winds are expected in the latter half of the week, making the danger of a spreading fire critical.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgSpecimens of a late Bajocian to early Callovian isocrinid assigned to Pentacrinites cf. P. californicus (Clark), and specimens collected by Hikuroa in 1999–2000, are described as a new species of Chariocrinus. All specimens were collected from rock exposures of the Latady Formation at eight localities in the Behrendt and Hauberg Mountains, Ellsworth Land, Antarctica. The fauna, preserved in situ at all localities, is essentially complete, but due to tectonism, localities may have been moved many kilometres from their original position. Chariocrinus latadiensis n. sp. is compared with congeneric species and those of Hispidocrinus. It is the first record of the genus in the Southern Hemisphere, which has European Tethyan affinities. Columnals are pentastellate to pentalobate, and the symplectial articula appear diagnostic of Hispidocrinus but are included in Chariocrinus on the basis of spineless axillaries and fused adjacent crenulae; those of Hispidocrinus are spined and separated by a furrow or smooth band, respectively. A single pluricolumnal (?Apiocrinus) is the only associated crinoid found at any of the localities. Chariocrinus latadiensis lived a semi‐sessile existence on a volcarenite substrate in association with vagrant ammonites, epifaunal and infaunal bivalves, and epifaunal brachiopods. The benthic taxa lived in shallow, low energy marine environments in the Middle Jurassic, part of a submarine back‐arc basin near the shore off southeastern Gondwana.last_img read more
