Located near the Xiang river in a prime area of the city’s downtown, the tower will dominate the city’s horizon and bear a strong presence on the skyline. Read on for the architects’ description… Save this picture!© RRC STUDIOThe concept for the Xiang River Tower stemmed from the idea of Chinese boxes contained in a single bigger box – each box, stacked on top of another, containing several programs. Luxury residences occupy the upper half of the tower while a hotel is located below, followed by premium office spaces that occupy the tower’s lower portion.  Save this picture!© RRC STUDIOOn the top levels, amenity floors joining the three programs include recreation rooms and a spa. Additional amenities are on the landscaped roof of the tower and include a pool, pavilion and a belvedere.  Save this picture!© RRC STUDIOAt the base, different types of leisure spaces create an extension of the square and of the public parks that surround the tower. The large entrance hall serves as a point of distribution of the entire tower and creates a meeting place for different types of users.  Save this picture!© RRC STUDIOThe Xiang River Tower incorporates sustainable building practices into its design through advanced building systems, a double skin and natural ventilation. Due to its considerable height, it has a natural temperature gradient and a higher wind speed that both reduce the need for artificial cooling. This strategy is reminiscent of a wind tower and is a sustainable way to cut down on the building’s energy consumption.Project gallerySee allShow lessDoes Prince Charles Abuse His Power Over Architects?Architecture NewsUnified Architectural Theory: An IntroductionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/421136/xiang-river-tower-by-rrc-studio Clipboard Mixed Use Architecture CopyAbout this officeRRC STUDIOOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsSkyscrapersChangshaHousingSkyscrapersResidentialMixed UseChinaPublished on August 31, 2013Cite: Barbara Porada. “Xiang River Tower / RRC STUDIO” 31 Aug 2013.

Dave Matthews Band Releases Charlottesville 2018 Recording For Summer Tour Ticket Holders

first_imgOn December 14th and 15th, 2018, Dave Matthews Band played a two-night homecoming run at Charlottesville, VA’s John Paul Jones Arena, bringing their first North American fall tour since 2012 to a close. A previously unreleased live recording of the show from December 14th is now available to download for fans who have purchased tickets to DMB’s upcoming 2019 summer tour.The Friday night concert at Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena began with a pair of tunes from 2002’s Busted Stuff, with “Big Eyed Fish” transitioning smoothly into “Bartender”. They continued with another older fan-favorite in “Satellite” before turning to one of their newer tunes, “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”. “#41”, “Again and Again”, and “Everyday” all came next before the band charged into a cover of Aerosmith‘s 1975 anthem, “Sweet Emotion”, which has become a recurring setlist staple throughout much of the fall tour.The band’s mid-set collaboration alongside the Preservation Hall Jazz Band came 10 songs into the show. Their performance of the newer song, “That Girl Is You”, started with plenty of fresh energy thanks to the unapologetic tone and presence of NOLA outfit’s horns. The song took plenty of time to open up and develop, with the members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing away on their trombones, trumpets, and saxophones while a smiling Matthews strummed along on with his acoustic guitar.The second half of the show saw the band continue with performances of “Louisiana Bayou”, their go-to cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer”, “Don’t Drink The Water”, and “So Right”. The set came to an end following performances of “Why I Am”, “You & Me”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street”. They would return for a two-song encore of “Christmas Song”, which recently made its way back into the setlist after a four-year break, and their cover of Bob Dylan‘s “All Along the Watchtower”, which included a verse from Led Zeppelin‘s “Stairway To Heaven”. DMB summer tour ticket holders can head here for more information on how to access the show recording.For a list of Dave Matthews Band’s upcoming tour dates, see below.

See goal by Andre Ayew that almost helped Swansea beat Blackburn [VIDEO]

first_imgAndre Ayew almost ended up scoring the winner for Swansea against Blackburn on Saturday just like his brother Jordan.However, his penalty was not enough for the Swans as they gave away a 94th-minute goal, as the Championship match ended 2-2.The goal was Andre Ayew’s 12th league goal in the Championship and 14th overall.Blackburn took the lead in the 25th minute when Sam Gallagher got on the end of Ryan Nyambe’s low cross to score.Rhian Brewster got the leveller, firing in a brilliant half-volley just before halftime.Three minutes after the break, Jordon Garrick was brought down in the box and the referee pointed to the spot.Andre Ayew stepped up and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.It was his second goal in as many games after he scored in the win over Huddersfield only days earlier.it wasn’t his best goal this season but it looked for a long time like being an important one as Swansea were seemingly heading for the win, Blackburn found an equaliser in the 94th minute as Johnson’s effort was deflected past Woodman.Take a look at the goal below:last_img read more

Lakers coach Byron Scott not backing off ‘soft’ comments

first_imgRonnie Price initially insisted he didn’t have a broken nose.Not only was the Lakers point guard’s nose badly broken during Monday’s loss to the Trailblazers, he needed 11 stitches and got a black eye resulting from the damage. If that wasn’t enough, the next day he came down with severe flu symptoms.His sickness restricted him such that he didn’t have to decide if his nose was healed enough to play in Wednesday’s loss to the Clippers. After sitting out one game, his symptoms subsided enough for Price to practice Thursday and after insisting he wouldn’t wear a mask to protect his healing nose, the veteran guard reluctantly donned one. He is expected to play today against Orlando wearing the mask, but is eager to be rid of it.“I hate this thing,” Price said. “It’s the worst. It’s comfortable as far as what it is and I’m happy that someone actually put the time in to make it, but as far as me wearing it, I can’t stand it.”After taking an elbow to the nose from Portland’s Thomas Robinson on Monday, Price said the pain didn’t kick in until later that night. He was actually hoping to stop the bleeding in time to get back in the game after leaving with 29.8 seconds left in the third quarter.“They kept on telling me ‘Your nose it broke,’” Price said. “I was like, ‘No it’s not. It doesn’t hurt.’ I kept (shifting it back and forth) and it probably made it worse. Then I got to the doctor. … I looked at it and I saw that one side was dented in and the other was poking out. I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’”Young day-to-dayNick Young sat out of Thursday’s practice with a sore knee the small forward hit on the floor after he slipped coming off a screen during the second quarter of Wednesday’s loss to the Clippers.After visiting a doctor and getting X-rays on Thursday, Young called himself day-to-day and said he expects to play today when the Lakers host Orlando.Young is officially listed as questionable for the game as is Wesley Johnson, who has missed the last two games with a strained right hip flexor. Kobe Bryant also sat out of Thursday’s practice. Byron Scott wasn’t emulating the Zen Master on Wednesday night when he called his own team soft after the Lakers’ embarrassing 114-89 loss to the Clippers.It wasn’t an attempt to manipulate his team through the media, something Phil Jackson might appreciate. The Lakers coach was just mad.“I was just telling them the truth,” Scott said. “I just wanted to tell them how I felt and how I thought the Clippers viewed us as a basketball team. And I was just being totally honest.”Scott didn’t back off his comments Thursday after a practice he made sure to point out concluded with a healthy dose of running. To the contrary, Scott acknowledged the seriousness of his choice of the word soft. “It’s almost like walking up to another man and slapping him,” Scott said. “But like I said, I wasn’t pulling punches.”With his team trailing by 22 at halftime — the Lakers’ largest deficit of the night was 43 — Scott relayed the same message to his team that he later told the media. When the game ended, he simply told the players to go home. In an effort to not further enrage himself, Scott hadn’t viewed the game tape from the 25-point loss as of Thursday afternoon. “I did myself a favor and didn’t look at the video,” he said. “I’ll look at the video (Thursday) afternoon. Because for me, if I looked at the video (Wednesday) night or (Thursday) morning before practice, it probably would have just made me more pissed off, to be honest with you. Let’s get through practice. I’ll go home and I’ll look at it. Then I’ll probably come out here (Friday) pissed off.”Tough week for Pricecenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
