Architects H Arquitectes The house for a couple with three children – without noticeable programmatic nuances – is situated in the typical development of workers housing from the first half of the 20th century, close to the historic centre of the city: orthogonal streets and long and narrow lots – four meters -.

The project strategy may be seen in the section of the dwelling: a rather unusual arrangement of the program in floors, the incorporation of a courtyard on the ground floor and the use of the stairway as a tool for natural light an ventilation. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezTaking advantage of the fact that the client children were not babies – the youngest was ten- we decided to separate the master suite from the rest of the bedrooms and situate in on the ground floor. The project rejected the normative possibility of occupying one hundred percent of the ground floor and incorporated a courtyard, around which the master suite and the father’s studio were located. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezOn this same floor, access from the street, converting the garage into the vestibule (or the vestibule into garage). A dark space –black- that admits both, persons and cars. The area for day use was placed on the first floor (one flight up), on the level of the terrace formed by the ground floor roof. The kitchen, dining room and living room inter-relate without more than the necessary, minimum impediments. Generating a succession of diaphanous and continuous spaces from the façade to the street –kitchen- until the back of the lot –terrace-. The stairway was not interference, it is light and precise. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe children’s three individual bedrooms were situated on the second floor, in the front , tied to the stairway by means of a large studio, which becomes a common playroom. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe stairway- in open fretwork from the first floor is defined with great precision, since a great transparency is demanded of it, both in order to permit the greatest entry of natural light as well as to not block the relationship of the common spaces on the first floor. This tool is connected to a large skylight that captures natural light and ventilation. In defending these objectives, the normative possibility of making an attic crawl space was rejected and the building is covered with an inverted flat roof. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe façade- our façades- in an urban situation as described seeks to recover the compositional values of the traditional façades of most of the houses in the surrounding area. Vertical windows, with opaque shutters, over a background that never questions the wall character of the neighbouring buildings. The façade, with the shutters closed, tends to an absolute silence, altered only by the submerged and coloured door.Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: Green Roof Residence / LIJO RENY architectsArticlesFree CompetitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

  • GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress

    first_img Facebook Twitter GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress SHARE GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 14, 2016 A national standard for food products that contain genetically modified ingredients is finally on the President’s desk.  The House passed its first GMO label bill a year ago, but it took passage of a state law in Vermont to goad the Senate into action. Just ahead of a 6 week recess, the House passed the Senate version of the bill on Thursday and it is now on its way to the President. Farm and commodity organizations praised the quick House action on an issue that was more about biotechnology than food safety. “Today, our representatives in the House built upon last week’s work in the Senate, taking another important step toward bringing consistency to the marketplace,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling. “This achievement was made possible as members of the food and agricultural value chain came together as never before to advance a solution that works for farmers, food companies and, most importantly, consumers.” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said, “House passage of GMO disclosure legislation means we now begin the work of putting in place a uniform, national labeling system that will provide balanced, accurate information to consumers. Genetically engineered crops have a decades-long track record of safety and benefits for agricultural productivity and our environment.”  American Soybean Association President Richard Wilkins said, “We believe this thoughtfully-crafted compromise provides consumers with the information they need, without stigmatizing a safe and sustainable food technology.” Home Indiana Agriculture News GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress Previous articleMonsanto, BASF, Resume Talks on AcquisitionNext articleIndiana Ag will be a part of Governor’s Billion Dollar Plan Gary Truitt The President is expected to sign the measure, but don’t expect GMO opposition to go away.

  • Three men convicted of kidnapping and killing journalist in 2012

    first_img March 28, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three men convicted of kidnapping and killing journalist in 2012 to go further HondurasAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders welcomes the conviction of three men for the murder of Alfredo Villatoro, a journalist who hosted a show on radio HRN and coordinated its programming. He was found dead near Tegucigalpa on 15 May 2012, six days after being kidnapped from his home.A Tegucigalpa criminal court convicted Marvin Alonso Gómez and two brothers, Osman Fernando and Edgar Francisco Osorio Argujo, on 25 March, exactly 22 months after their arrest on 25 May 2012. Accepting the detailed evidence presented by the prosecution, which included DNA identification and records of calls to Villatoro’s family demanding a ransom, the court found them guilty of aggravated abduction.Sentences are to be announced on 25 April. According to the judges in charge of the case, the three men could receive sentences ranging from 40 years to life imprisonment under article 192 of the penal code.“We welcome this conviction, we look forward to the sentencing and we like to think that the thorough investigation by the special prosecutor for organized crime is indicative of a desire by the authorities to reestablish justice in Honduras,” said Camille Soulier, head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We hope this case will set a positive precedent and we urge the authorities to show the same commitment to resolving all crimes of violence against journalists, in order to end the impunity that has become the norm.”More than 40 Honduran journalists have been gunned down in the past ten years. The most emblematic cases include those of:- Aníbal Barrow, the host of the political show “Aníbal Barrow y nada más” on Globo TV, whose dismembered and partially burned body was found in July 2013, 11 days after he was kidnapped near San Pedro Sula, in the northern department of Cortés.

  • French construction firms evacuate staff from Chernobyl

    first_img Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released PARIS, Feb 13, 2013 (AFP) – French construction firms Vinci and Bouygues said Wednesday they had evacuated as a precaution around 80 employees from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine after a section of the roof collapsed.The two companies are working on constructing the sarcophagus structure covering the reactor that exploded in 1986 in the world’s worst nuclear disaster.A section of the plant collapsed under the weight of snow but there were no injuries or any increase in radiation from the reactor, the country’s emergency agency said Wednesday.”The preliminary reason for the collapse was too much snow on the roof,” the agency said, adding that the radiation situation is “within the norm” and nobody was harmed in Tuesday’s incident.The roof was constructed after the 1986 disaster but is not part of the sarcophagus structure covering the reactor, it said.However the collapse underlines concerns about the condition of the now defunct nuclear plant over two-and-a-half-decades after the world’s worst nuclear disaster.Part of the roof and some of the walls at the plant’s machine room, close to the sarcophagus that seals the reactor number four which melted down in the 1986 accident, fell under the weight of the snow.The area of the accident is estimated about 600 square metres, (6,500 square feet), the emergency agency said.Structure not critical for protectionA statement on the website of the power station described the accident as the “partial failure of the wall slabs and light roof of the Unit 4 Turbine Hall.”It said that the damaged structure was not critical part of the protection structures at the power plant.”There are no changes in the radiation situation at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant industrial site and in the exclusion zone. There were no injuries,” it said.Chernobyl is only around 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Ukraine’s capital Kiev and lies close to the borders with Russia and Belarus. The area around the plant is still very contaminated and is designated as a depopulated “exclusion zone”.Amid concerns about the state of the sarcophagus, an arch-shaped structure called the New Safe Confinement is being built nearby to slide over the existing sarcophagus covering the reactor.The EBRD is administering the fund to build the shelter with the help of donor contributions. When it is finished in 2015, the structure will weigh 20,000 tonnes and span 257 metres (almost 850 feet).Two workers were killed by the April 26, 1986 explosion and 28 other rescuers and staff died of radiation exposure in the next months. Tens of thousands of people needed to be evacuated and fears remain over the scale of damage to people’s health.In 1986 and 1987, the Soviet government sent more than half a million rescue workers, known as liquidators, to clear up the power station and decontaminate the surrounding area.However the total death toll from Chernobyl remains a subject of bitter scientific controversy, with estimates ranging from no more than a few dozen deaths directly attributable to the disaster to tens of thousands.Watch archived news footage of the original accident below: Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest WhatsApp News Dail to vote later on extending emergency Covid powers Dail hears questions over design, funding and operation of Mica redress scheme Google+ Previous articleConclave to elect new pope not before March 15th: VaticanNext articleMan charged over pensioner burglary in Tullamore admin Facebookcenter_img Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Twitter French construction firms evacuate staff from Chernobyl Twitter Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By admin – February 13, 2013 HSE warns of ‘widespread cancellations’ of appointments next week PSNI and Gardai urged to investigate Adams’ claims he sheltered on-the-run suspect in Donegal Google+last_img read more

  • Antarctic palaeo-ice streams

    first_imgWe review the geomorphological, sedimentological and chronological evidence for palaeo-icestreams on the continental shelf of Antarctica and use this information to investigate basal conditions and processes, and to identify factors controlling grounding-line retreat. A comprehensive circum-Antarctic inventory of known palaeo-icestreams, their basal characteristics and minimum ages for their retreat following the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) is also provided. Antarcticpalaeo-icestreams are identified by a set of diagnostic landforms that, nonetheless, display considerable spatial variability due to the influence of substrate, flow velocity and subglacial processes. During the LGM, palaeo-icestreams extended, via bathymetric troughs, to the shelf edge of the Antarctic Peninsula and West Antarctica, and typically, to the mid-outer shelf of East Antarctica. The retreat history of the AntarcticIce Sheet since the LGM is characterised by considerable asynchroneity, with individual icestreams exhibiting different retreat histories. This variability allows Antarcticpalaeo-icestreams to be classified into discrete retreat styles and the controls on grounding-line retreat to be investigated. Such analysis highlights the important impact of internal factors on icestream dynamics, such as bed characteristics and slope, and drainage basin size. Whilst grounding-line retreat may be triggered, and to some extent paced, by external (atmospheric and oceanic) forcing, the individual characteristics of each icestream will modulate the precise timing and rate of retreat through time.last_img read more

  • USA: Austal Breaks Ground On Three New Facilities

    first_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: Austal View post tag: Breaks April 1, 2011 Austal USA held a combined groundbreaking ceremony today, to celebrate the start of work on three new facilities including Phase 2 of the Modular Manufacturing Facility (MMF); a new office complex; and an additional waterfront Assembly Bay.The ceremony was held at Austal USA’s shipyard in Mobile, Alabama, where construction is underway on the U.S. Navy’s Independence-class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program and the Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) program.This event was attended by several notable dignitaries, including Alabama Governor Robert Bentley; Rear Admiral Joseph F. Campbell (Deputy Commander, Logistics, Maintenance and Industrial Operations, Naval Sea Systems Command); Mobile County Commission President Merceria Ludgood; Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson; Mobile City Council President Reggie Copeland; City Council Vice President Fred Richardson and Councilmen John Williams and Jermaine Burrell; Austal USA President and Chief Operating Officer Joe Rella; Stephen Gray, President and Chief Executive Officer of Gray Construction, and Henry Seawell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Thompson Holdings, (the companies that are contracted for the design and build of the new facilities); and representatives from Senators Sessions and Shelby and Congressman Bonner’s office.At the ground breaking ceremony, Governor Bentley commented: “Thanks to Austal USA, hope and opportunity have been brought to those living along the Alabama Gulf Coast. Employment at Austal USA has increased from 113 employees in May 2004 to an employment level in excess of 2,000 today.”“As we enter into the second major expansion at Austal, employment will increase to 3,600 employees. These are good paying jobs that allow our citizens to partner with Austal to produce the best ships for the U.S. Navy.”When asked about the impact these new investments would have on Austal’s shipbuilding capability and the local economy, Joe Rella commented, “This new expansion fulfills the commitment Austal made during the LCS competition, and will enable Austal to hire the expanded workforce to meet the delivery requirements for both the JHSV and LCS programs. The contribution to the local economy from our jobs and procurement activity will cascade into many business sectors located on the Gulf Coast.”Located on Dunlap Drive, in Mobile, Alabama, the Phase 2 MMF project will double the existing manufacturing floor space to 700,000 sq. ft and add 30,000 sq. ft. of office space. When complete, the state-of-the-art facility will be capable of constructing six large aluminum vessels such as the Navy’s LCS and/or JHSV per year.The new three-story office complex will be placed just north of the MMF and will encompass over 108,000 sq. ft. of office space to include a reconfigurable multi-purpose room capable of seating 400 people auditorium-style. It will house 450 employees and will be five times the size of the existing two-story office building on Dunlap Drive.Assembly Bay 5 will be constructed south of the mid yard breakroom adjacent to Assembly Bay 4 where Coronado (LCS 4) is currently being constructed. It will have 59,000 sq. ft. of floor space, 425 feet long by 135 feet wide and will be similar to that of the existing Assembly Bays 3 and 4, with the ability to join with the future expansion of Assembly Bay 6.Gray Construction, located in Birmingham, is constructing the second half of the MMF and the office complex. Thompson Engineering is designing and constructing Assembly Bay 5. Local subcontractors being used are SJ&L, Rowe Surveying and Engineering, Southern Earth Sciences, Jordan Pile Driving, Robert J. Baggett, Persons Service Company, A&B Electric, KMC, National Pump and Compressor, Gorham HVAC, Kittrell Acoustics, Warehouse Equipment/Supply, and Team Steel Placement.[mappress]Source: Austal, April 1, 2011 View post tag: facilities USA: Austal Breaks Ground On Three New Facilities View post tag: Navy View post tag: three Industry news View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Ground Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Austal Breaks Ground On Three New Facilities View post tag: New Share this articlelast_img read more
