A word, “cow shed”, shown in a title might sound strange, but it is because I , who named it, simply think so. Of course, it is not a cow shed, but a proper residence, but it was named because of its condition and a sense of volume that the architecture has. It is located in Nasushiobara. It is not a country villa, but a building for a permanent dwelling.The shape of the architecture is “beginning of architecture”, namely, a base point and is a gate directing at nature. The site is located at a dead end place, when a street turns in a right angle, on a small hill of a newly developed residential district, which is 10 kilometers southwest of Nasushiobara station. That is, beyond the point there is only a natural forest open to the south. Therefore, the architecture is a gate towards the forest.Save this picture!© Ken Yokogawa  “Yes, just like Geoffrey Bawa ……” The gate is in 26 meters in the total length, rising up for 4.5 meters from ground level for a wall height. A polyhedron roof rises for further two meters up, so it has a volumetric scale that is unlike from ordinary residences. A blocking wall has a hole that penetrates a road and green of the forest can peek.Save this picture!© Ken YokogawaThough the site sets deep green forest in its front, in reality, it was in a triangular shape that a view is open towards the east side. I wanted to secure a view over a court wrapped in green by lowering the eastern land for a half floor (-1,500mm). I put the feeling of G.Bawa in half floor lower eastern side court and a garden open towards the upper level’s forest. For the interior space of the architecture, each room is arranged by a half floor skipped floors composition. In other words, residents come and go 26 meters long distance over an outdoor road that is penetrated in plan. In fact, the interior of polyhedron, this time composed of wooden three-dimensional trusses, is one-room space under one roof, consisted of spaces continuing kitchen, a skipped floor level study and to a guest room.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Exhibition Calls for a Bold Vision in the “Great Basin”EventEstar House / REC ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & AssociatesSave this projectSaveHayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/447974/hayasaka-house-ken-yokogawa-architect-and-associates Clipboard 2013 CopyAbout this officeKen Yokogawa Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNasushiobaraHousesJapanPublished on November 14, 2013Cite: “Hayasaka House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates” 14 Nov 2013.

An important aspect was to achive a harmonious integration of the building on its own site. Sibiu is an old city with a well-defined center of medieval buildings, dating from the Renaissance and Baroque period. Therefore, the double pitched roof, the proportions of windows and the spaces between them were an attempt to adjust to existing archetypes. All these elements add a “gothic” spirit to the building, ensuring a better integration on the site.Save this picture!© Peter MarxAnother purpose of this project was to obtain the essence of form on a minimalist key. In order to accomplish this, we used the same material for both roof and facade. It is understandable how the roof dictated the material for the vertical elevations as well. This is how the all-copper solution crystallised, copper being a material that ages beautifully and diversely.Save this picture!Section CThe simple volume of the house is divided in two, by a void that illuminates the interior, bringing the light right in the middle of the composition. Inside, a fluent and continuous space is created by the presence of this atrium, representing the core of the building, creating an introverted space despite the small size of the site. Half levels add dynamism to the construction and their connection is made, besides the immaculate white stairs, by an elevator.Save this picture!© Peter MarxTo highlight the spectacular interior volume we used mostly white, so the color perception does not interfere with the perception of space itself. In this way we have managed to place the “public” functions facing the street (hall, living         room) and the “private” ones facing the backyard (bedrooms).Save this picture!Section BAlso for reasons of privacy the home cinema is located in the semi-basement, facing a generous english courtyard. In order to make the semi-basement, part of the daytime area, the english courtyard was outlined by stepped rowes filled with greenery/vegetation and the transparency of the home cinema windows represents an extension of the room towards this relaxing courtyard.Save this picture!© Peter MarxThe stage design of the plants with the stepped rows ensures a discreet nightime lighting and protection from the surroundings. The image of the aging copper brings life to the building, but also clashes with the simplicity of the volume, something highly beneficiary in this context.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn the spirit of unity of expression both the fence and the gate were made of oxidized steel, protected with a colorless varnish. The kitchen, the technical room and the home cinema are placed in the semi-basement, the ground floor has an entry hall and the stairs leading to the dining area; then we find the living room placed on the first floor with the related stairs that arrive to the sleeping areas – the master bedrooms and the other bedrooms on the last floor, facing the backyard.Save this picture!© Peter MarxThe rhythm given by the full and hollow areas from the facade benefits the interior design. The beneficiary is an art collector and this way the paintings can be placed organized and rhythmically between the windows. The facade is well isolated and ventilated, also granted with a heath recovery system, placed near the roof.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMichael Graves Dies at 80Architecture NewsRSHP Unveils Plans for Two Tower Development in BogotáArchitecture News Share Copper House in Sibiu / Radu TeacăSave this projectSaveCopper House in Sibiu / Radu Teacălast_img read more

Yulhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, is a residential area that has the appearance of the past, unlike its surroundings of a new city. Unlike the parking lot and the well-maintained area, when you enter the complex, you face a high wall facing the road. It seems to indicate the disconnected communication of residents of Yulhyeon-dong. However, Y-Project tries to promote community coexistence and contribute to the community as a new residential prototype of Yulhyeon-dong neighborhood.Save this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonY-Project is a loving gift of parents to an ordinary 20-year-old son with developmental disabilities. This building has a formation as a ‘group home’ which about five people with developmental disabilities live in together. The required spatial scale is based on the average adult height, and the attribute of the dissolved space in it should be an environment in which positive emotion could be expressed.Save this picture!DiagramThe cork of the multi-purpose hall is fluffy and protects the user from the injury, and also serves as a sound-absorbing plate to prevent the sound from ringing. Considering the psychological stability, birch plywood boards with comfortable texture or light tones of color was used as the finishing material.Save this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonSave this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonThe multi-purpose hall which has high ceiling is continuously transformed. It turns into a banquet hall, where people can share delicious food, or sometimes it welcomes people by functioning as a lecture room. The lighting differs according to the program’s character, so that it functions and adjusts the atmosphere of the space. The first floor exterior wall, the toilet and the kitchen are composed of structural walls supporting the load, and the remaining inner walls are made of variable walls so that the first floor can be used as a residential space at any time.Save this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonSave this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonThe Y-Project has soft narrative flows in it created by the layer of space. Spatial narratives, which are structured to travel from the spaces to another, when the door open, stimulates the consciousness and raises the interest of adults with developmental disabilities. Save this picture!Section PerspectiveWe separate the spaces by covering the kitchen floor with tiles and the living room with wood, and revealing the outline of the space while saving the first floor central hallway. Ceiling louvers above the main corridor provide a balance and order for the entire living room. The Client wanted to keep whole layout of the building as residential, but hoped that the first-floor entrance would not show the character of it. In order to monitor the access, we have planned a glass wall with a shelf furniture of plywood board integrated, creating an office atmosphere.Save this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonThe yellow steel plate on the core is a thoughtful design that is freely designed along the frame of the staircase. A noticeable yellow color suggests a clear circulation, and the lighting installed under the steel plate acts as a compass to safely go up and down the stairs. The freely application of yellow color contrasts with the heavy dark gray and makes the space more dramatic and rhythmic compared to the living room, which is finished with birch.Save this picture!© Joon-hwan YoonProject gallerySee allShow lessMOMO Office / PAL DesignSelected ProjectsAlbert Park Extension / MUSK Architecture StudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” Construction: JU-SUNG MEC Electrical Engineer: Photographs Architects: RNK DESIGN Area Area of this architecture project South Korea Mechanical Engineer: CopyAbout this officeRNK DESIGNOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBamgogae-ro 24-gilSouth KoreaPublished on August 06, 2018Cite: “Y-Project RNK DESIGN / RNK DESIGN” 06 Aug 2018.

Westridge Residence / Miró Rivera Architects

first_img Houses Design Team:Ken Jones, Lilliana Fields, Matthew HelvestonEngineering:JM Structural EngineeringCity:AustinCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsText description provided by the architects. The Westridge Residence represents the intersection of inspiring design and exceptional sustainability. Built for a family of four, the design-build project focuses on two compact structures—a main house and detached garage with a guest apartment—linked by a trellis of rebar suspended in a natural catenary curve. The home was designed to enable and enhance harmonious living, with the intent to create a space where interaction with the outdoors is at the crux of daily life. Situated on the flattest portion of a wooded, sloping site, the residence basks in natural light and enjoys a sense of openness. Every space was designed to have a unique connection to the outdoors: large windows in every room; a sheltered open-air deck on the upper level; and an expansive outdoor deck flanked by the pool and lawn.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsThe main house contains an open living/dining/kitchen area and a master suite on the ground floor. Full-height sliding doors in the open living area and a rotating, suspended fireplace allow the side of the house facing the deck to be completely opened up to the outdoors. A canary wood staircase leads to the upper floor, which houses two bedrooms, a playroom with a kitchenette, a small media room, exercise/meditation space (convertible to another bedroom), and an open-air deck with views over the sloping property. The tall ceilings created by the curving roofline allowed for the addition of a small loft space accessed by a ladder in one of the children’s bedrooms.Save this picture!SectionThe detached guest house provides a model for seamlessly incorporating accessory dwelling units (ADUs) into site planning and architectural design. The lower level has an open-air carport, workshop, and storeroom. A weathering steel staircase with Ipei treads leads up to a home office and guest apartment with a bathroom and kitchenette. The mechanical system for the unit is separated from the main house, allowing for minimal energy usage when it is unoccupied. The two buildings are linked by an Ipei deck that runs parallel to a 40-foot long swimming pool. The resulting “dog trot” that separates the two structures allows views through the house to the steep, wooded slope beyond, and for the family to enjoy views of the site from the pool, deck, and a small “front lawn” of native buffalo grass.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsOverhead spans the home’s most distinctive design feature: a canopy of closely-spaced 1/2″ rebar strands that provide shade to the outdoor spaces while visually completing the curving rooflines of the main and guest houses. Weathering steel reappears at the built-in barbecue pit and as edging for a series of planters that steps down to the driveway and entry gate. The home is located in South Austin on a site with steep slopes and a broad canopy of existing trees. The long axis of the design follows the contours of the site, allowing for minimal disruption to the existing landscape and taking advantage of the tall foundation to create a functional basement that is used for storage and laundry. Taking advantage of the large site, a quarter-mile walking trail wanders down from the house, passing a limestone spring and pool and winding through an elm woodland, remnant prairie, and cedar break. Save this picture!First Floor PlanSustainabilityCompared to an energy model from a baseline case study, the home uses 22% less energy annually. A 6.8-kilowatt rooftop photovoltaic system generates nearly 40% of the home’s total annual energy usage. The home makes extensive use of low-voltage LED lighting inside, while the exterior light fixtures are designed to reduce light pollution. A geothermal loop field consisting of five 250-foot deep wells handles five tons of heating and cooling load. The deck that connects the two structures conceals five 2,000-gallon rainwater storage tanks. The collected rainwater is used for irrigation and to compensate for the seasonal evaporative loss in the swimming pool. A landscape approach utilizing over 100 native species was chosen to complement and enrich the 1.3-acre site’s native prairie and woodland species.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsAll invasive plants were replaced with native species, while the existing native plant communities were maintained and enhanced. A significant portion of the site spanning north-south downhill from the house is a dedicated biofiltration field that naturally retains and/or filters rainwater as it makes its way toward a nearby creek. As the builders, the architects worked to develop a waste-management plan to address the disposal of unused materials, and any waste produced on-site. In the end, 83% of construction waste by weight was recycled or salvaged. In order to minimize environmental impact, measures were taken to ensure that no hazardous materials were used in constructing the residence. All interior wall and ceiling paints contained 10 g/l or less of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and the majority of those contained none. The insulation has no added formaldehyde.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Heights Building / BIGSelected ProjectsFirst Smart Forest City in Mexico Designed by Stefano Boeri ArchitettiArchitecture News Share General Contractor: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927255/westridge-residence-miro-rivera-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Austin, United States Lighting: Projects ArcLight Design “COPY” Westridge Residence / Miró Rivera Architects CopyAbout this officeMiró Rivera ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on October 29, 2019Cite: “Westridge Residence / Miró Rivera Architects” 29 Oct 2019.

Seattle: 10,000 march to honor Martin Luther King

first_imgKing Day in Seattle, Jan. 20.Seattle The 38th annual march celebrating the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 20 was larger than usual this year.  The racism and hatred spewed by President Donald Trump and his political allies, and the crisis of poverty faced by so many people, no doubt motivated many demonstrators to participate.There was agreement among the crowd with this statement made from the podium: “We can make the Trump era the final thrust of the beast of white supremacy!” The march and rally were part of an all-day program, organized by the Seattle MLK, Jr. Organizing Coalition. There was a morning job and opportunity fair at Garfield High School in Seattle’s historic Black community, followed by 26 workshops dealing with social justice issues and then a midday rally in the gym. A youth cultural rally was held the day before. The Duwamish Nation, the first people of Seattle, welcomed demonstrators to the event. A representative of the Muckleshoot Nation was thanked for a large donation to the march. Singer Josephine Howell led the crowd in singing the Black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Michael  “Quess” Moor from Take ‘Em Down NOLA gave a spoken word performance about their grassroots struggle which led to the removal of four white supremacist monuments in New Orleans.Speakers also honored local veterans of the Civil Rights struggle, including the late Jacquie Jones-Walsh, a “pillar of the community.” She was vice president of the local Coalition of Black Trade Unionists and the Martin Luther King Celebration Committee and served on the executive board of the Washington State Labor Council.Honoree Larry Gossett spoke at the rally. He recently retired from his 25-year stint as Martin Luther King County councilperson. Gossett helped found the Black Student Union and worked on the struggle that won affirmative action for students at the University of Washington.In 1983, community leaders exposed the fact that King County had been (outrageously!) named after William Rufus DeVane King, a member of one of the largest slave-owning families in Alabama. He was also vice president for six weeks in 1853 in President Franklin Pierce’s administration.  Along with other members of the Black community, Gossett was a key organizer in the struggle which pressured the government to rename Seattle’s King County after Martin Luther King and to put Dr. King’s picture as a logo on all Metro buses and other county properties.Hotel and hospital workers, Machinists marchOn the way to downtown Seattle for another rally, the multinational march, which included a large youth contingent, detoured to protest a new jail for youth being built in the Black community. Members of UNITE HERE, who are fighting attacks on their livelihoods at the Edgewater Hotel, marched alongside members of the Machinists union who work at Boeing.The marchers stopped at Swedish/Providence Hospital to hear hospital workers speak. Members of SEIU Healthcare 1199 NW appealed to demonstrators for support in their struggle against severe staffing shortages and low wages. Some 8,000 workers from three unions are set to strike from Jan. 28 to 30 at the giant hospital chain. It is anticipated that thousands of workers from around Washington state could join this unfair labor practice strike.As the protestors continued on to the King County Correctional Facility, a large banner displayed near the front of the march read: “Cops and King County jail guards are brutalizing womxn and girls: Black Womxn’s Lives Matter!” Outside the penal facility, activist Nikita Oliver denounced the jail as “a place where Black and Brown people are disproportionately locked up for crimes of survival.”The march ended at City Hall Park where Gossett explained: “The reason we are congregating here is because homeless people, our own people, hang out at this park.”A community meal was provided for everyone at Garfield High School after the march. An atmosphere of solidarity and unity prevailed among those who participated in the day’s activities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Scouting Fields, First Step of Harvest

first_img Scouting Fields, First Step of Harvest Harvest activity will begin to pick up steam this coming week across the state, but one of the first steps of harvest should be scouting your fields. Determining when to open a field for harvest is a critical decision each farmer makes.  Brian Bush, agronomist with DuPont Pioneer, says scouting fields is a good step, “Checking fields now can be important. If we are not checking now, we are at risk of lodging.” He added that a few minutes today may save a grower from a big problem down the road. Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Our harvest updates from Pioneer will continue next week. More details can be found on the agronomy page.  Scouting Fields, First Step of Harvest With moisture levels running high this year, Bush says dry down is a key factor to consider when checking fields for harvest, “Pioneer has some great ratings for dry down, but it is still important to go to the field and check.”  Bush said, with daytime highs or 75 degrees and overnight lows around 55 degrees, a crop will lose about 1/3 to 1/2 percent of moisture per day, “Before you decide to let it stand in the field another week to dry down, check your stalk strength. The last thing you want to do is have your crop go down while trying to save a few dollars on dryer gas.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Scouting Fields, First Step of Harvest Bush warns that some hybrids can stand in a field longer than others and that the standability of a crop is a key factor to consider when making that harvest decision, “It does us no good to have a hybrid that yields well but you can’t get it into the head. Pioneer hybrids like P1105AM is a great yielding hybrid but should be targeted for early harvest because it has the risk of stalk lodging.” By Gary Truitt – Sep 25, 2014 Facebook Twitter Previous articleUS Ethanol Production Drops to Six-Month LowNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more

Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Sep 12, 2019 This month’s 2019/20 U.S. corn outlook is for reduced production, lower corn used for ethanol, and slightly higher ending stocks.Corn production is forecast at 13.799 billion bushels, down 102 million from last month on a lower yield forecast. Corn supplies are down from last month, as a smaller crop more than offsets larger beginning stocks due to lower estimated exports and corn used for ethanol for 2018/19.Corn used for ethanol for 2019/20 is lowered 25 million bushels. With use falling more than supply, corn ending stocks are up 9 million bushels from last month.The season-average corn price received by producers is unchanged at $3.60 per bushel.U.S. oilseed production for 2019/20 is projected at 110.2 million tons, down 1.3 million from last month with lower soybean and cottonseed production partly offset by a higher peanut forecast.Soybean production is projected at 3.6 billion bushels, down 47 million on a lower yield forecast of 47.9 bushels per acre.Soybean supplies are reduced 2 percent on lower production and beginning stocks. With soybean crush and exports unchanged, ending stocks are projected at 640 million bushels, down 115 million from last month.The U.S. season-average soybean price for 2019/20 is forecast at $8.50 per bushel, up 10 cents. The soybean meal price is projected at $305 per short ton, up $5.00. The soybean oil price forecast is unchanged at 29.5 cents per pound.The full report is here.

They were programme director Anibal Barrow, kidnapped and killed on 24 June, and cameraman Manuel Murillo, who was killed on 24 October.“Globo is one of the few national broadcasters to criticize the June 2009 coup d’état,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Its staff and reporters in the field have paid a high price for this for the past four years. It has included military occupation of their premises, confiscation of their equipment and targeted murders. The mere fact of working for Globo exposed Argeñal to danger.“A total of 38 journalists have been killed in the past decade in Honduras, two thirds of them since the 2009 coup. Given the almost complete collapse of the rule of law, will this latest murder remain unpunished like nearly all the others? Does it signal the start of a new crackdown at a time when the country’s future seems more uncertain than ever?”Reporters Without Borders added: “We fear the worst, and we regret the international community’s inadequate response to this disaster. The priority right now is that authorities investigate this new crime.”TV Globo chief David Romero Ellner said Argeñal had received threats after exposing a case of corruption in a local hospital. His murder could also be linked to his well-known support for Liberty and Refoundation, the party led by Xiomara Castro, a candidate in the 24 November presidential election and wife of Manuel Zelaya, the president ousted by the 2009 coup.

Bill Thomson to Seek Re-Election as Pasadena Community College Trustee

first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Bill Thomson, who ran for Mayor and lost earlier this year, announced Monday that he will seek a third term to the Pasadena Area Community College District Board of Trustees for Area 4, which covers most of Pasadena.Thomson says he wants to build on advances over the past eight years in making stronger ties with cities and school districts in the PCC area, enrolling more local students, improving career and technical programs, maintaining fiscal integrity, and striving for higher levels of educational excellence.“Through the Pathway Project that I helped initiate, PCC has moved students from high school through Pasadena City College and on to four-year colleges and universities,” said Thomson. “We’ve made good progress with Pasadena high schools, and I want to keep that progress going with other high schools in the PCC college district and with other universities.”“PCC is a great college,” said Thomson. “I’m committed to continue working to make this great college even greater.”Recently, Thomson helped raise more than $1 million dollars in scholarships for PCC students through the first-ever “PCC Celebrates Student Success” Gala that he and his wife, Carol, chaired in May. By all standards, the Gala was a tremendous success, not only in raising money for scholarships, but in bringing more than 500 people to the PCC campus and spreading the word of the outstanding work that PCC does for its students and our community.First elected to the board of trustees in 2007 with more than two-thirds of the vote, Thomson garnered almost 85 percent of the vote in 2011. He will stand for reelection on November 3.Thomson has a background as an intellectual property litigation attorney. He is currently with the intellectual property firm of Brooks Kushman in its Los Angeles office.He also has a distinguished record of civic leadership, having served as the Mayor of Pasadena (1988-1990), as a Pasadena City councilmember (1981-1997), and as the chair and member of the Rose Bowl Operating Company and the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, among many civic activities.Thomson earned a Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center and a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering from Bucknell University.Thomson and his wife, Carol, have lived within a mile from PCC for more than 40 years, and they have been actively involved in the Pasadena community throughout that time.
