Large urban residences are registries as well as articulations of filial, financial and aspirational value. Catering as much to their inhabitants’ needs as to their whims, they are, simultaneously, spaces of private indulgence as also objects of a more socially motivated aesthetic expression.Save this picture!© André J FanthomeLittle wonder then that the luxurious and the exotic are sought in various ways from their design. As processes of globalised supply and demand, impact construction, fabrication and procurement logistics, greater value seems to be drawn from the extrinsic or exotic in terms of materiality and the machined in terms of form and technology. Systems of architectural production also appear to have cleaved apart the relationships between making and material while form seems to rely heavily on geometries that ease the application of industrially produced and pre­engineered surface renders. Ironically, the search for the unusual in contemporary urban architecture seems akin to a walk in a “walled garden” of ubiquitous aesthetics.Save this picture!© André J FanthomeOUTRÉ HOUSE attempts a rediscovery of the singular and distinctive, specifically, in the working of humble materials; on site and by hand. It attempts to do so by re­centring the umbilical bond between making and material. From bespoke concrete formwork and poured flooring to curved joinery and rhythmically notched masonry, the design releases its handmade construction from the shackles of the straight line, giving it flight. It, thus, allows crafted details to overlay each other and to swarm all over the design rather than be restricted merely to points of material intersection. Save this picture!© André J FanthomeInduced by the city grid and its volumetric controls, the urban residential form most commonly, and perhaps most simplistically, resolves into rectilinearity. This box­form resolution of the program unavoidably results in spatial compartmentalisation, on top of which real estate imperatives encourage apartment stacks of clunkily laid out cookie­cutter floor plates. The curvilinearity of the building creates more fluid spatial formations and helps create smoothly transitioning spaces for social convivialities between the members of the resident family. Save this picture!SectionOUTRÉ HOUSE also rekindles the relationship between the crafted and the natural. The warp of the handmade and weft of the verdant further position this design away from the industrial. The interweaving of precisely turned wooden louvres and vertically installed planters allows the vegetal to enmesh with the structural, coalescing into internal and rooftop gardens. This coupling of craft and foliage also underlines the bespoke floral chandelier designed by Mann Singh for the lounge. Save this picture!© André J FanthomeProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Mod Apartment in Kyiv / Sergey Makhno ArchitectsSelected ProjectsINDESEM 2017 is Open for EntriesStudent Competitions Share Adhunik Infrastructure Civil Contractors: Structural Engineers: ArchDaily Outré House / Anagram ArchitectsSave this projectSaveOutré House / Anagram Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Anagram Architects Outré House / Anagram Architectslast_img read more

Park Extension is a historically Greek neighborhood that has many small unique detached homes that were often built by the hands of the people who lived in them. The area is a strange suburban enclave amidst an urban fabric that is far denser and less green. In the summer the sound of the birds and the rustling of the leaves can leave you confused to think that you are still in Montreal.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauFor us the eclectic nature of that little segment of park extension was what was really worth preserving, although the homes are all single-family dwellings, they vary greatly with the typical urban fabric in Montreal and from one another in their materials and style. The use of inexpensive light cladding materials is also something we noticed, which is rare in a city where brick cladding is most common and consequently obliged by city planners. For us, it was important that the new project felt like it was in continuity with what used to be there, almost like it grew out of it.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThe client wanted to add a storey to the house and we wanted to make sure to maintain that image of that eclectic white house in the middle of lush greenery; this was carried out by maintaining the proportions of the windows, replacing the white horizontal siding with a white vertical corrugated steel cladding to accentuate the project’s new verticality and paying homage to the original pitched roof of the home, by maintaining an angle on one side of the house. It was important for us to use a simple, inexpensive cladding, but to detail it with great care; we really liked the idea of using a cheap material with refined details. Town planners can often prioritize the use of noble materials like brick, but for us, in this part of town, the use of simple and cheap materials is an integral part of the built heritage of this place which we think is important to carry on.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Plan – BasementSave this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauConsidering the small 25ftx25ft footprint of the house, the client was brave enough to allow us to sacrifice a proportion of the ground floor and the second storey floor in order to generate 2 voids, one on the ground floor and another over the kitchen on the second story; allowing for light to reach deep into the basement while creating a sense of grandeur in a relatively small space.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThis strategy also generates the possibility for many interesting interactions to take place between the three communicating stories; each space has unique spatial qualities which aim to offer a diverse experience to the inhabitants. The double heights also help generate a sense of grandeur, in a relatively small footprint.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauThis project was our first built work that we undertook in the first year after our graduation from architecture school. We are incredibly touched to have had the opportunity to contribute to creating what we hope will become a new point of reference in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Raphael ThibodeauProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Future Workspace That Isn’t the WorkplaceArticlesThe Art of Visual Communication: 12 Tips for Creating Powerful Mood BoardsArticles Share Save this picture!© Raphael Thibodeau+ 37Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2020 Photographs Houses CopyHouses•Montreal, Canada Year:  Projects CopyAbout this officeNicholas FrancoeurOfficeFollowJoel LortieOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMontrealOn FacebookCanadaPublished on May 01, 2021Cite: “Park EX House / Nicholas Francoeur + Joel Lortie” 01 May 2021.

San Diego families unite against police abuse

first_imgFamilies from San Diego’s African-American and Latino/a communities met at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church on May 21, the sixth anniversary of the murder of Anastasio Hernández Rojas. They held a panel discussion titled “Black and Brown Families Unite: Demanding Law Enforcement Accountability.”The panelists were María De La Cruz, mother of Hernández Rojas; Jack Bryson, the father of a friend of Oscar Grant who was with Grant when he was killed; Brandon Duncan, hip-hop artist and activist; and DeWayne Harvey, the father of Aaron Harvey.The panelists each told their stories, beginning with Dwayne Harvey, whose son is one of 33 young Black men jailed and charged with associating with gangs that the authorities link to nine shootings around the area. San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis had these young men charged under California Penal Code 182.5, a racist statute used to arrest Black youth for having done nothing more than supposedly associate with supposed gang members who have been accused of crimes. Aaron Harvey had no criminal record before his arrest but could face 25 years in prison.Brandon Duncan, a rapper and another one of the San Diego 33 jailed under the racist statute, told of the events leading to his arrest and of his imprisonment. “I spent seven months in jail, literally fighting for my life,” Brandon said.Jack Bryson told the story of Oscar Grant, who, on Jan. 1, 2009, on his way home from a New Year’s Eve party, was shot and killed by Bay Area Rapid Transit police in Oakland, Calif. Bryson told how the Black and Brown people in the Bay Area are organizing and coming together. Black and Brown people are becoming so strong together that the politicians are nervous. Black and Brown people have been so oppressed they did not have the strength to fight back, but now are coming together and fighting as one — one of the cops’ worst fears.María De La Cruz spoke of her son, Anastasio Hernández Rojas, who was brutally tortured and murdered by over a dozen Customs and Border Patrol thugs at the San Ysidro border crossing into Tijuana, Mexico, on May 28, 2010. This brutal incident was caught on video by a passing pedestrian, but six years later there is still no justice.Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish translation via headphones was available at the meeting. Following the presentations, the floor was opened for discussion, questions and comments on what we can do together to stop police terror in our communities.The program concluded with cultural performances by Mujeres en Resistencia and a powerful spoken word performance by Mi-Ocean Rice.“Black and Brown Families Unite: Demanding Law Enforcement Accountability” was organized by the American Friends Service Committee, Alliance San Diego, Revitalize Not Militarize and Faith That Does Justice.In the more than 90-year history of the Border Patrol, never has an agent been successfully prosecuted under federal law for the killing of border residents. Over the last decade, police brutality in communities of color has become a largely overlooked epidemic. Whether the law enforcement agency is U.S. Customs and Border Protection or the local police force, Black and Brown communities must unite to combat abuse.People at the meeting were encouraged to vote, get involved, join an organization, stay informed and share what they learn with others.The Southern Border Communities Coalition recorded the discussion and posted a video on their Facebook website.It happened that the same day as the meeting, Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders was in San Diego for several events. Sanders found time to visit the ugly scar of the border wall that separates San Ysidro and Tijuana with María Puga, the widow of Hernández Rojas, and supporters. Sanders expressed his solidarity with their struggle for justice and with the struggle of a group of U.S. military veterans who, because they are undocumented, have been deported to Tijuana.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalists talk about their release seven years after the “Black Spring”

A total of 27 of them were arrested because of their opinions during the “Black Spring” crackdown of March 2003, and were given sentences ranging from 14 to 27 years in prison. Nineteen of them were still in prison at the time of the dynastic transfer of power between the Castro brothers in February 2008. Now – together with four other journalists who were arrested subsequently – six of the original 27 are still waiting to be released from prison and, almost certainly, to be sent into exile as well.Have they recovered their “freedom”? Not according to the journalists who were interviewed for this video in Madrid on 19 and 20 August, just as three more were arriving from Havana. “I will be free when my country is free,” said Ricardo González Alfonso, Reporters Without Borders correspondent and founder of the magazine De Cuba.

Despite spending €100 million so far to set up irish water, this monster quango is already out of control. Water services have been moved beyond the control of local councils and the Dail.Some €200 million has gone to irish water from the budget and €600 million more from motor tax funds. A further €500 million will be taken from the national pension reserve fund to install meters and not one metre of leaking pipe has been fixed. They have been given a blank cheque to do what they want.”Mc laughlin concluded The €50 million spent on consultants is outrageous at any time but in the current climate it’s a scandal and reminiscent of Fianna Fáil’s record of wastage of taxpayer’s money on other unwanted quangos. No amount of spin or waffle can justify it. The expertise already existed in local authorities to run and improve water services”.”Minister hogan should make a statement and answer questions in the Dail on this issue next week and john tierney of irish water should appear before the public accounts committee to account for this €50 million spend” Pinterestcenter_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Google+ WhatsApp Donegal Councillor says Irish Water consultants spending is a national scandal 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North WhatsApplast_img read more

Driver to share first-hand story at teen event

first_img Email the author Stories told of death at the hands of a drunk driver are most often told by family members and friends of the victims. Not often does the public have an opportunity to hear “the rest of the story.”Those who attend the fourth annual County Teen Safe Driving Event Friday night at Cattleman Park will have the opportunity to hear the story from the driver who caused the deaths of two young women.Jennifer C. Garrett, event organizer, said it is important for young people to know and realize that the driver who causes a deadly accident and his or her family suffer dire consequences, also. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Skip Smallridge paints a vivid picture of prison life and tells of the agony of living with the knowledge that he caused the death of two young women.Smallridge cautions that what happened to him could happen to anyone who gets behind the wheel of an automobile while under the influence.“Renee Napier and Eric Smallridge will hopefully make teens think twice before they drink and drive or ride with someone who is,” Garrett said. “If their stories can save one life, what a blessing that will be.”Assistant District Attorney Jon Folmar will also be a featured speaker. He will speak on Alabama’s DUI law.“We’ll have several local agencies that will have informational booths set up, including the Troy Fire Department, Troy Police Department, Pike County Sheriff’s Department, East Central Mental Heath Children’s Services, Boys and Girls Club and the Alabama ABC Board.“Our goal is to show kids and adults that every decision people make while driving affects more than just them,” Garrett said. “We invited people of all ages to come.”The doors at Cattleman Park will open at 5:30 p.m. Friday and the program will begin at 6 p.m. Admission is free.Sponsors of this year’s event include Horn Beverage, Griffin & Wilkes Insurance, the UPS Store, and the Pike County Cattleman’s Association.For more information about the project, email [email protected] or visit Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Published 11:00 pm Tuesday, January 14, 2014 You Might Like COWS AND CARS Terry Messick retired from Ken Cox Ford and took up cattle farming.

Their stories of heartache and forgiveness are mixed into one.”Garrett said, on May 11, 2002, Smallridge made a decision to drink and drive. That decision was a deadly one.Smallridge’s Jeep hit the rear end of the women’s vehicle sending it smashing into a tree.
