SITEThe project is located in a field in Geroskipou. To the north is the only neighbour, another residence, sitting higher than the project. To the east is a public road, with a row of mature conifer trees forming the boundary. The plot is generally level and exposed to the neighbour and views from the public roads to the south and west. Access to the site is from the road to the east.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomCONCEPTThe concept was born of the combination of two materials often found near this location: concrete tube pipe sections and metal sheet. The materials are translated here to the residence’s two separate envelopes: a metal structure clad in metal and glass, and the two walls of stacked concrete pipe sections running along the north and south facades of the residence.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Creative Photo RoomThe first envelope comprises the load-bearing structure of metal beams and columns sitting on a concrete slab foundation. The roof is formed of corrugated metal sheet, and the exterior walls are formed of aluminium-framed double glazing, fixed and moving. The glass envelope contains the interior of the house, providing unobstructed views to the outside. Clean, minimal, and technologically advanced, it creates a strong contrast with the second envelope.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomThe second envelope of concrete tubes is heavy, earthy, low-tech. It provides additional sheltering from the environment, specifically the sun and air, and filters views from and towards the house. The tube walls is where the privacy of the residence ends.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomDESIGN AND LAYOUTThe layout of spaces is linear along the east-west axis. The open plan living area is to the east, providing a dining area, kitchen, and sitting area. Three bedrooms and a study are placed along a corridor-gallery that runs the length of the house. Huge glass doors slide open to the deck veranda that runs outside to the south. The veranda is dispersed with garden pockets, containing small trees and fragrant plants.To the North is a water corridor that abuts the house. The same large sliding doors open directly to it. The water corridor sets the ambience of the soundscape and influences the light, reflecting it to the interior.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Creative Photo RoomProduct Description.The interior benefits from a high degree of thermal insulation thanks to the Envelop system. In the winter the south façade enjoys passive solar gains. An awning above the glass provide shade in the summer and prevent overheating, whilst the concrete tube walls shelter from strong winds.The Envelop 3D system used here is an integrated system with modules for different functions: fixed external walls, sliding and fixed windows, entrance door, all are provided by the system. It is installed in a single continuous track, 76 metres long, without the need for extra framing.Save this picture!© Creative Photo RoomThe walls contain polystyrene and fiberglass thermal insulation and are sealed externally with white glass.

As you enter the house the interior opens itself in a fluid and luminous space that dialogs with the back garden through large sliding glass panels that, when opened, integrate physically with the garden deck. Save this picture!© Paula MoraisThe house layout arrangement reflects the laid-back and gregarious lifestyle of its inhabitants, which are constantly receiving guests and hosting large groups of friends and family. On the left side of the ground floor is the social area and to the right, isolated from the rest, is the guest room and service area (the last two have and independently access to the garden). The social area is totally integrated, composed of a living room, dining room, kitchen, and home theater room. A piece of 7-meter multi-purpose furniture (dinner table, kitchen countertop/cabinet) was designed to serve as a functional support and a binding element between the rooms.Save this picture!© Paula MoraisVibrant punctual primary colors contrast with the concrete, stone and black and white masonry surfaces.

The external bedroom walls are covered, like the entrance panel, by a timber slat wall made of certified tropical wood that forms big chamfers in both extremities while keeping the slats aligned. The bedrooms, with large windows facing north (which receives more sunlight in the southern hemisphere), enjoy a beautiful view of an environmentally protected wooded area.

Eyewitness in Columbia, S.C. reports racists routed at Statehouse as Black Liberation flag flies high

first_imgMembers of Building Columbia’s Future and Bloods Crips Folks occupy Statehouse steps before confronting racists, June 29. WW photo: Bill StarrColumbia, S.C., June 29 — Things finally jumped off at the Statehouse tonight. The Confederates had called another rally. When this reporter got there around 4:30 there was a small group of them with large Confederate flags and a small group of us with homemade anti-racist signs.Then a convoy of cars with the red, black and green flags of Black Liberation showed up. We were joined by a well-organized group of young Black women and men from Building Columbia’s Future and Bloods Crips Folks.They occupied the space from the monument to the street, blocking off the graybacks. BCF marched over and rallied on the Statehouse steps when Confederate reinforcements arrived in pickup trucks with huge Confederate flags. They were driving by, slowly gunning their engines, when one of the flags came off a truck. The driver jumped out and did a reenactment of Confederate Army General George Pickett’s charge at Gettysburg during the U.S. Civil War — with similar result.The driver went down, his friends retreated, the cops rushed in and — assessing correctly the relationship of forces — arrested him.The racists disembarked up the block and began heading toward the Black History monument on one side of the Statehouse, so we all ran over that way. Several fights ensued around the Statehouse grounds, all ending up pretty much the same way — Confederates rolling on the grass with empty flagpoles. At the end of the day, the cops blocked off Gervais Street, an antiracist crowd occupied the Statehouse grounds and about 10 remaining Confederates stood behind a line of cops.Along with the great BCF group, the anti-Confederate flag group included a contingent of high-school-age white women, who were there all day, and two homeless white workers.My homemade sign got a lot of attention. It said on one side, “Honor the millions who died in slavery — Take it down!” and on the other side, “My ancestors fought for that flag — They were wrong!”At one point the graybacks started singing “Dixie.” A TV news clip showed me singing and shouting the words to “John Brown’s Body” in their face.A large anti-Confederate-flag rally in Columbia is planned for July 4. The South Carolina State Senate votes on July 6 about taking it down. A North Carolina Klan group has announced a rally at the Statehouse in Raleigh on July 18. It ain’t over.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Credit: EWB-CaltechOn the steep, tea-covered hillsides of Ilam in eastern Nepal, where 25 percent of households live below the poverty level and electricity is scarce, clean running water is scarcer still. What comes out of the region’s centralized distribution systems is unfiltered, untreated, and teeming with nitrates, viruses, and E. coli. Purifying it is the consumer’s responsibility.But wood and yak dung, the only available fuels for boiling water, are precious, and purification tablets impart an unpleasant chlorine taste. The result? During the rainy season, local hospitals overflow with typhoid and gastrointestinal cases, mostly involving children and tainted runoff.That may change, thanks to a gravity flow and slow-sand filtration system designed by Caltech undergraduates. They represent EWB-Caltech, one of the newest chapters of Engineers Without Borders USA, a nongovernmental organization (NGO) whose mission is to design and implement sustainable engineering projects in underprivileged communities.Founded in 2012 by Sarah Wright (BS ’13, bioengineering), EWB-Caltech already has about 30 members. This summer, a half dozen of the chapter’s members are traveling to Ilam, where they are staying with local villagers while helping to oversee and implement the system’s construction. The hillside will be partly excavated and then reconstructed. Layers of rock, gravel, sand, polyethylene sheeting, and soil will soak up rainfall, filtering and purifying it as it trickles into underground water. Pipes tapping into the underground water will run downhill to a small communal enclosure made of poured concrete, providing a reliable supply of clean water for about 100 households, with another 200 indirectly affected.The students will not be working alone, says their mentor, environmental engineering consultant Gordon Treweek (MS ’71, PhD ’75) who is partnering with Caltech engineering students for the first time. “All EWB projects are community-driven, with the local workforce providing much of the labor. And we’ve received tremendous logistical support, including interpreters, from the Namsaling Community Development Center, an NGO in Ilam that had previously worked with an EWB chapter from the University of Colorado, Boulder.”According to EWB requirements the Nepalese must contribute 5 percent of the project’s budget. EWB-Caltech copresidents Jihoon Lee (a senior in bioengineering) and Nauman Javed (a senior in physics) acknowledge that successfully coming up with the remainder—over $20,000—involved nearly continuous fund-raising. “We’ve been applying for grants, soliciting private donations, partnering with companies, especially water-related and environmental corporations, and we held a benefit dinner in January that was largely attended by Caltech faculty and friends,” says Lee.Both a 10-day on-site assessment trip last summer and this summer’s trip were covered by individual donations and grants. The assessment trip took Treweek, Javed, and fellow Caltech senior Webster Guan (chemical engineering) to Ilam to meet with the NGO; to survey the local community of about 100 families to ascertain their needs and willingness to assist in the construction and ongoing maintenance of the water tap stand; and to gather predesign data for planning construction and estimating costs.“The support we have received from Caltech alumni directly and through their networks of contacts at Northrop Grumman and Boeing has been invaluable in helping to keep this project moving forward,” Treweek says.After the assessment trip, the students spent the 2014–15 school year preparing detailed engineering documents using computer-aided design techniques. In this, they were assisted by the water-resource engineering firms Carollo Engineers and Montgomery Watson Harza, whose pro bono involvement did not surprise Treweek. “Consulting engineering firms frequently donate resources for projects like this,” he says. “It’s socially responsible, and it gives them a chance to observe future engineers addressing the four traditional phases of engineering: planning, design, fund-raising, and construction.”With preventable infectious diseases a leading component of Ilam’s one-in-three infant mortality rate, the project includes a public-education component. “Besides training the local villagers who will maintain our spring-water source protection system,” says Javed, “we plan to visit local schools, demonstrate how the system works, teach a little germ theory.”But no amount of careful planning can guarantee success. Similar projects have failed due to engineering problems, misaligned long-term governance strategies, eleventh-hour reprioritizations by the community, even simple miscommunication. “We’ve drafted plenty of contingency plans,” affirms Lee, “with great support from EWB-USA. Their stringent review procedures covered every engineering and social aspect of the project, and they’ve given us detailed feedback on our drawings, schedules, and rationales.”After the implementation phase—which ends just one week before classes resume back in Pasadena—EWB-Caltech will continue to monitor the site for five to six years. By then the current members will have moved on and a new group of student leaders will have taken over this project. But for now, they are spending their summer trying to build a better world, drop by drop. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy last_img read more
