The change is not just only moving from living in a 4-story commercial building to a single-story home, but also changing of mind and feeling to adapt to the new context. Therefore, the design takes into account balancing and blending between “Convention vs Science”, “The sense of security vs The comfort of new living in an open space” and “Chinese and Thai architecture”Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatAlthough in his senior years, the homeowner welcomes rational and modern thinking. Yet, as a Chinese-Thai descent, he does not overlook the belief in Feng Shui which affects not only the orientation of the house in the vast land but also facing of the house toward the north-east street and the location of the master bedroom too. In addition, the designer has employed the climatological data and analysis of the site to locate the central hall, which is the heart of this house, facing south to the view of Garjan giant trees in the temple: the best view of this area. So this hall embraces ventilation and comfort that the client had never received before when living in a commercial building.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatRegarding the familiar sense of security throughout the homeowner’s previous accommodation, this factor is what the designer is to first focus on with the new context: by designing the transparent fence, leaving the area as the front yard for clear of vision, and creating a large wall to prevent a private area from the eyes of the passersby. However, to reduce the solidity of the wall, the designer has created the particular pattern of masonry to make a porous brick wall and has installed the clear glass sliding windows inside the wall to present two layers of security. Moreover, the surrounded area is designated as an open space, which is the same concept used in a traditional Thai house that often leaves the packed soil ground around it. But this house, river gravels are used instead as they would clatter if intruders broke in.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatIn addition, located in the idyllic landscape of Angthong suburb, the building is designed based on basic elements of architecture, including locally available materials such as wood, steel, and concrete. Yet, the most important material was the local-made “Angthong bricks” with an intention to show an authenticity of material to reflect its true value and to create harmony with the rural landscape surrounding. Apart from this, because of the location which is on an open land with no perennial trees together with the concept of safety, the architect has created a surrounding space around the building, thus allowing the light to shine through the semi-transparent plane that has built for a safety reason. Also, light and shadow on the plane of the architecture itself appear and change according to different moments of the day: a good example of how natural power imparts the value of space.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatProject gallerySee allShow lessHof van Duivenvoorde / 70F architectureSelected ProjectsNhà Của Tiến / 23o5studioSelected Projects Sharecenter_img CopyAbout this officeTeerachai LeesuraplanonOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThailandPublished on March 06, 2018Cite: “Lean House / Teerachai Leesuraplanon” 06 Mar 2018.

The house, dubbed as the Private Residence No. 7 is located in the middle of a neo-posh locality of the city. The exposed-concrete residence shows how architecture can be used as a tool to give expression to human mind through a clever play of open and closed spaces.

The openings are oriented to pull in more light from the north and east facades and to significantly reduce heat gain from the south and west.Save this picture!© Harsh Pandya / PanchkonThe interior voids, facade openings, rooftop courtyard, elevated garden and extended walls work together with light, shadow and the landscape to create a powerful influence of nature while keeping the identity of that of the monolith intact.

This seemed like an excellent starting point for a home in an old and traditional town of Bohinjska Bistrica.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Žiga LovšinToday the house stands amid others in the centre of Bistrica, enveloped by a wooden façade and a gank, both traditional features that were once prevalent among houses in the Gorenjska region.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinAt the moment the house still boasts a colour of fresh wood, but in time it will fade to shades of grey and completely blend in with the existing surroundings, thus becoming an integrated part of the existing town’s landscape. With this colour change, the façade will visually step aside and let the gank, overgrown by red carnations, and a small green garden in front of the house to come forward and take charge in shaping the view of the house.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinOur design process aimed to create a house with contemporary attributes but it still had to, in its form, gracefully intertwine some of the traditional elements.  We’ve achieved that by reinterpreting the traditional gank, which on the eastern facade follows a more conventional form, but in contrast, takes on a modern approach on the southern facade. In this part of the building the gank, which is traditionally executed on the higher floors, descends to the ground, with added on wooden cladding, hiding the entrance to the apartment below.Save this picture!© Ana SkobeThis shift in height and partial coverage, emphasizes the main entrance to the above unit and exposes the building’s functional hierarchy. In addition to that, the wooden cladding screens off big windows placed in the wellness area, shielding the intimate space from the outside. The same visual approach is used on the rest of the facades – larger windows used to bring in heaps of light are moved back behind the wooden cladding, leaving only smaller windows visible from the exterior. These being a reference to the traditional features and local typology.Save this picture!© Ana SkobeThe house is divided into two units – the first unit used by the owner as his private accommodation and the second used for renting. With this functional divide in mind, we wanted to create two independent functional units gathered within the same architectural envelope.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinThe division of the inside space is portrayed on the facades in form of their partitions and can as well be seen in a form of its immediate surroundings. The renting unit comes with a garden on a different ground level as the rest of the landscape, which grants the users more privacy and at the same time ensures more harmonious incorporation of a rather large object into the old city centre.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinIn the interior of the house, the main feature is the visible wooden roof structure, which becomes a dominant visual element and therefore shapes the atmosphere of the upper floor. On the ground floor, space is, as seen in most traditional houses, concentrated around a stove.Save this picture!© Žiga LovšinProject gallerySee allShow lessBadinter School / YOONSEUX ArchitectesSelected ProjectsWho Are Lacaton & Vassal? 15 Things to Know About the 2021 Pritzker Architecture Lau…Architecture News Share Photographs Houses CopyAbout this officeRaketaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSloveniaPublished on March 16, 2021Cite: “BBL Apartment House / Raketa” 16 Mar 2021.

Don’t forget Ukraine’s communist traditions

first_imgYoung communists in Kiev carry photos of Komsomol resistance fighters executed by Nazis in occupied Ukraine 71 years before, on Feb. 8, 1943.Ukrainian workers over the past century have made heroic contributions to the struggle for socialism in Europe and North America. This should not be forgotten even though reactionary forces currently have the political ascendency in Western Ukraine.The toppling of a Soviet war memorial in the Western Ukrainian town of Stryi spits upon everyone who died fighting the Nazis. It’s an attack on the millions of Ukrainians who fought heroically in the Red Army and the many thousands who were anti-Nazi partisans.At least 25 statues of Lenin — the leader of the 1917 October Socialist Revolution — have been toppled. Meanwhile wreaths have been placed upon statues of the fascist Stepan Bandera, whose followers murdered Jewish and Polish people.These actions go hand in hand with demanding a Ukrainian NAFTA-type agreement that would make the country a vassal of European and U.S. banks.Hanging the Confederate flag of the U.S. slave masters inside Kiev’s City Hall, as those who put the new Kiev regime in power did, dirties the revolutionary traditions of Ukrainian workers and peasants.In the early 20th century, Ukrainian immigrants founded meeting halls in the United States and Canada called labor temples. The Ukrainian Labor Temple in Winnipeg, Canada, still stands, though it was raided by police during the 1919 Winnipeg general strike.Over its entrance are two clasping hands reaching across a globe with the slogan “Workers of the World Unite.” The pro-Soviet Ukrainian Labor News was published there weekly. (Manitoba Historical Society)It was Ukrainian immigrants who were the backbone of the communist movement in Western Canada. Following the October Revolution, the Ukrainian Labour Farmer Temple Association founded 25 branches in Saskatchewan alone. (Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan)This association supported the 1931 coal miners’ strike in Bienfait, Saskatchewan. The workers were organized by the Workers Unity League, which was led by Communist Party members.Royal Canadian Mounted Police killed three of these strikers on September 29, 1931, in nearby Estevan. The inscription “Murdered by RCMP” is on their tombstones. Many more workers were wounded or arrested.The Ukrainian Labour Farmer Temple Association was shut down by the “Mounties” in January 1940. The Association of United Ukrainian Canadians continues the ULFTA’s progressive traditions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RWB launches petition for release of Azerbaijani journalist Ismayilova

first_img Help by sharing this information to go further News RSF_en Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh The investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova, a leading figure in the battle for press freedom in Azerbaijan, was arrested on 5 December. Reporters Without Borders has launched a petition to demand her release and for the senseless charges against her to be dropped. Sign the petitionIsmayilova, an award-winning journalist and figurehead of independent journalism in Azerbaijan, joins the ranks of the 100 political prisoners in the country. She foresaw her arrest, but despite the growing harassment to which she has been subjected for many years, nothing could persuade her to leave the country for which she has fought for years with exceptional courage and persistence.Release Khadija IsmayilovaPetitionShe is the former Baku bureau chief of the Azerbaijani service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, banned from the airwaves since 2009, who now works for various news outlets. She devotes herself to the most taboo subjects such as the dominance of the all-powerful presidential clan in the country’s most lucrative businesses, conflicts of interest and high-level corruption. The day before she was arrested, the president’s chief of staff, Ramiz Mehdiyev, referred to her by name in a speech violently denouncing an Azerbaijani “fifth column” and foreign attempts to destabilise the country.As part of its efforts to eliminate media pluralism, the government of President Ilham Aliyev placed her in preventive detention for a minimum of two months, accusing her of driving a former colleague to attempt suicide. Such a charge against the human rights campaigner, who has previously faced allegations of spying and libel, is patently absurd.Ismayilova joins nine other journalists and at least five bloggers in custody, all imprisoned because of their professional activities. Reporters Without Borders calls for their immediate and unconditional release.“In imprisoning a journalist of such worldwide repute as Khadija Ismayilova, the Baku authorities have given a huge slap in the face to all those who believe in freedom of information and human rights,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “The government of Ilham Aliyev orchestrated an unprecedented crackdown while Azerbaijan held the chairmanship of the Council of Europe and has now expressed in the clearest possible terms its feeling of complete impunity. It’s high time it was proved wrong.”Defiant in the face of threatsIn 2011, Ismayilova disclosed that Aliyev’s two daughters, through a front company, had shares in the flourishing Telecoms firm Azercell, which has a monopoly on 3G access in Azerbaijan despite suspicions surrounding its entry into the market.A year later, she and a colleague, Nushabe Fatullayeva, disclosed that the two women also had shares in a gold and silver mine recently opened in the village of Chovdar. Besides entailing environmental risks, the operation involved the purchase of land on the cheap and the destruction of the local infrastructure.At the time, Ismayilova was the victim of a smear campaign involving an explicit video. Far from giving up, she exposed these machinations and published her exposé of the president’s family again. The video was posted online and she was the target of a vilification campaign in the official media. The campaign was revived the following year after the publication of a second video.Instead of being discouraged, in 2013 she contributed to an investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists which disclosed that the president’s family had shares in companies based in the British Virgin Islands which benefited from lucrative building contracts in Baku.As the Azerbaijani authorities stepped up their repressive efforts, the pressure on Ismayilova increased. She was accused of spying, libel, and taking part in an unauthorized demonstration, She was detained at the airport and finally barred from leaving the country in October this year.Her activities have recently entered a new dimension. After most of Azerbaijan’s human rights activists were arrested, she has gradually filled some of the gap. She contributed to the compilation of a list of political prisoners, fought to organized legal support and assistance for families and tirelessly kept the international community informed about her country’s headlong plunge into the abyss as far as respect for human rights were concerned.Before repression reached a new high this year, Azerbaijan was ranked in 160th place of 180 countries in the latest World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders.Help us to free Khadija Ismayilova by signing the petition.Photo: Azadliq Radiosu (RFE/RL) News December 15, 2014 – Updated on May 24, 2016 RWB launches petition for release of Azerbaijani journalist Ismayilova Follow the news on Azerbaijan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News News Receive email alerts RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 4, 2021 Find out more June 8, 2021 Find out more April 9, 2021 Find out more Organisation last_img read more

RWB supports independent probe into brutal attack on reporter

first_img News Reporters Without Borders condemns the brutal attack on Tetyana Chornovil, an outspoken journalist with the Ukrainskaya Pravda daily newspaper, who was dragged from her car and badly beaten in Kiev on the night of 24 December.“We support the decision by the Institute for Mass Information, a Reporters Without Borders partner, to conduct an independent investigation to ensure that those responsible for this act of barbarity are brought to justice,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We are appalled by this violent attack, the gravest of all the many abuses against journalists in Ukraine in recent months. Such violations of the Ukrainian media’s safety and freedom of expression are intolerable.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Journalists must be able to work freely. We urge the Ukrainian authorities to guarantee respect for justice, freedom of information and fundamental rights.”A journalist who has become well known for her investigative reporting about senior government officials and politicians, Chornovil is also a leading activist in the “Euromaidan” protests in Kiev’s Independence Square against President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to back out of a partnership agreement with the European Union.She was driving in her car in a Kiev suburb on the night of 24 December when three unidentified men in an SUV forced her to stop, gave her a severe beating and left her at the side of road. Rushed to hospital with concussion and multiple facial fractures, she has undergone several operations and is still in intensive care.Chornovil attributes the attack to her latest article, posted on her blog on 24 December, in she wrote about a luxury villa owned by interior minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko.The attack has triggered a wave of outrage in Ukrainian civil society. Several demonstrations have been held supporting Chornovil and calling for the interior minister’s resignation, and many opposition leaders, including Yulia Tymoshenko, have condemned the attack.The police say they are investigating it as a case of “hooliganism” under article 296-2 of the Criminal Code and have arrested three suspects.There has been a sharp increase in violations of freedom of information since the start of the Euromaidan movement. At least 50 journalists have been physically attacked during demonstrations since the start of December and three opposition media were stormed on 9 December.According to the Institute for Mass Information, journalists have been the victims of a total of 101 physical attacks in 2013.Ukraine is ranked 126th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Coonagh to Knockalisheen Road Scheme allocated funding of €1.4m

first_imgNewsCommunityCoonagh to Knockalisheen Road Scheme allocated funding of €1.4mBy Staff Reporter – May 30, 2014 1640 Email Advertisement WhatsApp Linkedin The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has approved an allocation of €1.4 million for the Coonagh to Knockalisheen scheme to advance to full Tender Stage. On successfully completing the Tender Stage, the scheme should proceed to construction by the end of 2014.Limerick City and County Council has welcomed this allocation and is confident that construction should begin this year on the €40m Coonagh to Knockalisheen Road Scheme following this allocation of €1.4m for the project.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The scheme, a key element of the Moyross Regeneration Programme, will provide a new link road to Moyross, and a new 3km urban style dual carriageway between the R857 at the Coonagh roundabout and the Knockalisheen Road along the North West side of the city. As part of the project, the Knockalisheen Road will also be upgraded with new footpaths and cycle lanes resulting in improved access to communities, increased potential for development and reduced congestion in the city centre.The €1.4m funding is in addition to €1.5m already allocated at the start of 2014 and it has been allocated to complete the land acquisition and commence construction of the scheme.Brian Geaney, Home and Social Directorate, Limerick City and County Council described the allocation as ‘great news particularly for the people of Moyross.’“This road is a key element of the new infrastructure required to open up Moyross and should be the catalyst to drive on the remainder of the work required under the Regeneration Framework Implementation plans and attract in private investment,” he explained. “It’s a major project costed at €40m out of a total of €106m value of projects for the Moyross area and it will provide a great boost for the overall Regeneration process resulting in approx 100 plus construction jobs over a 30 month construction period.”Chairperson of the Moyross Regeneration Committee and Principal of Corpus Christi School, Moyross, Tiernan O’Neill described the announcement as “hugely welcome” by the community.“Moyross has been synonymous with being known as Ireland’s longest cul-de sac for many years,” he said. “The image of Moyross as a dead end has both physical and metaphorical connotations and this access route which opens Moyross to the surrounding communities is a very significant step in the Regeneration of the area. I would like to put on record the Regeneration Committees appreciation of the work officials from the Office of Regeneration have put into getting this proposal over the line. It would be a huge boost for the Regeneration Process if this project was shovel ready within the next 6 months.”The proposed Coonagh to Knockalisheen Road Scheme will provide an essential link road to the Moyross area. In the absence of the planned scheme traffic to Moyross is accessed from the Knockalisheen Road and Killeely Road and ends in a cul-de-sac at Delmege Park.
