This project hybridizes two typologies: the modern house and the industrial shed with north light from above. The program specificity, with 4 autonomous but interrelated units – house, guest apartment, atelier and garage- together with the slope from the terrain design the frame where we integrated both types into a single volume. Save this picture!Cortesía de F451 ArquitecturaThis integration modified the regular use of some of the spaces of the original type based in the new relationship with its immediate surroundings. The house does not land on the ground but changes the relationship with it as the plan progresses. The volume emerges from it in one of the extremes, aligns the house with the garden in the central area and finally detaches itself in the west side. The open hallway that appears in the central area where the house and the atelier merge is designed as exterior and roofed space. It becomes the area of relationship of the different programs and works as a climatic regulator for them. Save this picture!DiagramThe energetic efficiency of the proposal and its landscape integration are two major considerations for the constructive solution of the project. The merging between the house and the atelier happens in such a way that every space has double orientation, lighting and ventilation. Save this picture!Cortesía de F451 ArquitecturaThe construction is based on a metal corrugated plate exposed in the interior, with a thermal layer of 10cm that covers all the volume and with an exterior finished of flexible stucco on fiber reinforced resins. The vertical walls are made of honeycomb clay block that reinforce the thermal insulation from the outside and increases the interior thermal lag. In the guest apartment the thermal blanket is substituted by a garden roof that establishes continuity between the garden and the building and provides a similar insulation.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’I Love, Love, Love : to Build’ ExhibitionArticlesNanjing Road Mixed Use Area Proposal / RTA-OfficeArticles Share Area: 395 m²+ 19 Share Mixed Use Architecture Projects ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/329500/lara-rios-house-atelier-f451-arquitectura Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officef451 ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureIndustrial ArchitectureWorkshopResidential ArchitectureHousesGijón/XixónSpainPublished on February 08, 2013Cite: “Lara Rios House & Atelier / F451 Arquitectura” [Vivienda Y Estudio Lara Ríos / F451 Arquitectura] 08 Feb 2013.

The 2 Girls Building is a mixed use building that fuses art, photography and architecture. The project explores the relationship between the three disciplines and blurs their respective boundaries resulting in one craft overlapping and appropriating with the characteristics of the others in the form of a new medium. As a result photography appropriates architectural materiality and photography shifts into the architectural space of the third dimension. Architecture becomes photography, photography becomes architecture and the building becomes a hybrid urban artefact within the built environment.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeKUD collaborated with Melbourne Artist Samantha Everton during the design process to ensure a collaborative integration of art forms throughout the project. The “Masquerade”, from Everton’s ‘Vintage Dolls’ series, that features on the building façade, was specifically selected for its familiar vernacular in its subject matter which is synonymous with inner city traditional domestic spaces and more importantly, for the drama and theatre it provides to the public realm. The primary circulation space doubles as a de facto art gallery with art works on display, dividing the offices, warehouse spaces and residential apartments.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe collaboration injected another layer of complexity; unintentionally exchanging and swapping the roll of the architect to artist and the artist to architect. The boundaries of the alliance were blurred, redefining ‘the artist’ and ‘the architect’ as one expression. This synergy spawned a hybrid typology and ensured that the photo‐archi‐art prevailed.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeProject gallerySee allShow lessAIA Names 6 US Libraries as 2015’s BestArchitecture NewsHello Wood Open Call 2015: Project VillageArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Melbourne VIC, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The static space includes 2 bedrooms, 1 for the homeowner, 1 for guests. Utilized the main East-West location of the land, we organize the static space with night activities (2 bedrooms) in the east, where there is soft light in the morning (back), is structured as a bunk bed with the lower part for the homeowner, the upper part for guests.Save this picture!© Hoang LeDynamic space with mainly daytimes activities, we put it in the west, where there is sunset light in the afternoon. With kitchen and dining table are center ( first floor ). These spaces are almost absolutely open to the quiet road in front of the house. We want a celibate person can connect better with the surrounding community in these blank spacesSave this picture!© Hoang LeWe want the ventilation in this house to be natural, especially the heat from the rooftop, and this is our solutions: firstly, we divide the height of the floors with the low first floor (2m35), spreading horizontally, high second floor (4m2), next, set the second floor at different high level, and lastly, we organize voids interject. With the weather condition of southern Viet Nam, where there is no winter, this allows us to organize ventilation slots fixed on the surface of the house ( façade, back, rooftop ). Basically, besides the main door ( first floor ) this house almost has no windows, air ventilation inside-out of the house implements through these fixed slots. .This helps reduce the cost of the door section as well as reducing the closing time of the windows for a celibate homeowner.Save this picture!© Hoang LeSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hoang LeWe have always loved nature through lighting and external weather changes. However, the anti-heat handling of the main west house is a big challenge. Outside, we used the shade of the tree above (tall tree in front, climbing tree at the back) as a large awning. Inside, we use buffer space, cloth curtains, bamboo curtains that adjust the portion of light directly from the outside.Save this picture!© Hoang LeThe construction of a simple structure also saves us costs on the project. We build a concrete shell, finish it with glass, use wood to divide the space inside (bunk bed), use the leftover wood to create the furniture for the house with local craftsmen right on the construction site.Save this picture!ModelThi house is a small housing project with a low expense.

Kalief BrowderAnother mother has lost her child to the racist, brutal prison system. Kalief Browder, an African American who was only 22 years old, committed suicide on June 6, after having spent more than three years in jail at Rikers Island in New York City. He hung himself with an air conditioner cord at his home in the Bronx.Browder was arrested in the spring of 2010 at the age of 16 for allegedly stealing a backpack. Bail was set at $3,000, a sum his mother could not afford. Throughout his three-year ordeal at Rikers, Kalief heroically refused to plead guilty, always stating his innocence — even though it might have meant an early release.Browder’s case caught the attention of well-known journalists. For example, a spotlight was shone on his tribulations in an article written by Jennifer Gonnerman in the New Yorker’s Oct. 6, 2014, issue. That article and others detailed that this young man, a teenager, a beautiful child who might have had a promising and wonderful life, spent more than a thousand days in jail where he was brutally treated, beaten and tortured.Browder later related stories to his family about being starved and beaten by Rikers’ guards. Video footage acquired later by journalists sadly confirmed this nightmare.Unbelievably, two of Browder’s three years at Rikers were spent in solitary confinement. While incarcerated, he tried to end his life several times. Clearly, the prison-industrial complex broke this young man’s fighting spirit.Because of Browder’s horrific situation, there have since been a plethora of articles in the mainstream media about what he went through during his 1,000 days at Rikers Island. Articles of condemnation abound, rightfully calling Rikers a “house of horrors” and even comparing it to Abu Ghraib. Politicians like Mayor Bill de Blasio condemn conditions at Rikers Island.But unlike what many media accounts are stating — that “New Yorkers did not fail Kalief” — the system did fail him. The working class of New York City is not to be blamed; its rulers are.Browder the rule, not the exceptionBrowder garnered much attention and support. Upon his release, he was able to meet Jay Z. Rosie O’Donnell invited him to appear on TV on “The View” on Nov. 7, 2014. Anonymous donors paid for some of his tuition for community college.Still Browder could not overcome the demons that had been planted in his young mind as a result of solitary confinement and torture.Let this be a hard lesson for the liberal petty bourgeoisie. Charity or heartfelt generosity is not enough to save a life. One New Yorker article that exposes the terrible reality of so many prisoners can serve more to make a writer famous than deal with the root causes.New Yorkers are not passive about prison conditions. Example after example abound of families and activists who work night and day to show what is happening in the prison systems in New York and throughout the country. However, their voices don’t seem to be heard as much as those who write for the New Yorker.Reports from many legal sources, entities such as the United Nations, countless mental health experts and well-documented films have clearly demonstrated the dangers of solitary confinement and the horrors of prison conditions in this country. Solitary confinement has been shown to drive adult men insane. Imagine the effects on a young mind.This is an age-old problem; it did not just begin. In her book “The New Jim Crow,” Michelle Alexander demonstrates that this government and the capitalist system it upholds are calculated and designed to jail the oppressed. The prison system — just like the killer cops who walk free — shows that Black and Brown lives do not matter under the capitalist system.That is why the entire capitalist system must be overturned and uprooted in order to save the lives of future Kalief Browders. Until then, Rikers Island should be shut down immediately, killer cops should be jailed and the occupying police force disarmed. That should be the order of the day.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
April 27, 2021 Find out more News Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam Pro-democracy activist Vi Duc Hoi’s eight-year jail sentence has been reduced to five years on appeal but is still extremely harsh, Reporters Without Borders said today, reiterating its call for the release of Hoi and all the other 17 netizens currently detained in Vietnam.In a decision issued yesterday, the appeal court also reduced the length of the house arrest that Hoi will have to serve after release from prison from five years to three. The original sentence of eight years in prison and five years house arrest on a charge of anti-government propaganda was imposed last January.“Vi Du Hoi’s only ‘crime’ was to post comments online on such subjects as land expropriations, corruption and the advantages of a multiparty system,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The reduction of his sentence on appeal is just symbolic and indicative of a government desire to camouflage the severity of the repression.”The organization added: “Another cyber-dissident, Cu Huy Ha Vu, was sentenced last month to seven years in prison and three years of house arrest on the same charge. The authorities can no longer hide the scale of these arbitrary arrests and severe sentences. Fearing Jasmine Revolution-style destabilization, they are criminalizing free speech and, in so doing, have confirmed Vietnam’s position as the world’s second biggest prison for cyber-dissidents.”Hoi was awarded a Human Rights Watch prize in 2009.——————————————————————————————–Cyber-dissident gets eight years in prison for anti-government propaganda01.27.2011Reporters Without Borders condemns the eight-year jail sentence that a court in the northern province of Lang Son imposed yesterday on Vi Duc Hoi, a former Communist Party official turned cyber-dissident who has been detained since October.Convicted of anti-government propaganda and threatening national security under article 88 of the 1999 criminal code, the 54-year-old Hoi was also sentenced to five years of house arrest after his release from prison. His lawyer, Tran Lam, said he would appeal Reporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to quash Hoi’s conviction and release him without delay. At the opening of the Communist Party’s congress on 11 January, the press freedom organisation had urged the government to show clemency and to free all of the country’s imprisoned journalists and cyber-dissidents (read the article).“The world’s second biggest prison for netizens, Vietnam is ignoring international pressure and the appeals of human rights groups and is sticking to its policy of repression and control of news and information,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The government is continuing its habit of arbitrarily convicting citizens whose only crime is to dare to express their views freely.”The press freedom organization added: “An additional layer of repression was recently introduced when the government adopted a new decree regulating the activities of journalists and bloggers.” (read the article)After joining the Communist Party in 1980, Hoi was soon put in charge of a local propaganda department. Expelled from the party in 2007 for calling for democracy, he began to post comments online on such sensitive subjects as land expropriations, corruption and the advantages of a multiparty system. His home was searched on 7 October and he was formally arrested 20 days later. He had been facing the possibility of a 20-year jail sentence. A member of the Bloc 8406 network of pro-democracy activists, Hoi was previously arrested in April 2008 for taking part in a protest during the Olympic torch relay.Vietnam was ranked 165th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is on the Reporters Without Borders list of Enemies of the Internet.

SeanPavonePhoto/iStockBy LUKE BARR, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — As President Donald Trump ramps up his hard-line rhetoric against protesters, The Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday it is launching rapid deployment teams to federal monuments over the Fourth of July weekend.The effort comes in the wake of nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody in May — many of which have targeted Confederate and other statues and monuments.“As we approach the July 4th holiday, I have directed the deployment and pre-positioning of Rapid Deployment Teams (RDT) across the country to respond to potential threats to facilities and property,” said DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf. “While the Department respects every American’s right to protest peacefully, violence and civil unrest will not be tolerated.”The Department says the task force will work with the Department of the Interior and Department of Justice to establish information sharing but would not provide specifics as to what the teams would do and how many personnel would be deployed. It is also unclear whether DHS is responding to any specific threat or planned protest.Trump has been focusing on protecting statues and monuments, last week signing an executive order to do so.“I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues – and combatting recent Criminal Violence,” Trump tweeted. “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!”The Department says Trump’s executive order “directs DHS, within its statutory authority, to provide personnel to assist with the protection of federal monuments, memorials, statues, or property.”Trump has tweeted numerous times about protecting statues, even tweeting the FBI wanted poster for some of the alleged suspects who tried to take down the Andrew Jackson statue outside the White House.“We are tracking down the two Anarchists who threw paint on the magnificent George Washington Statue in Manhattan. We have them on tape. They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act. Turn yourselves in now,” the president tweeted.Over the weekend, DOJ charged four people with allegedly trying to take down the statue.On Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning, Wolf said that because of the “lawlessness” of the past few weeks “the president, the administration, we are taking some really strong action.”But the American Civil Liberties Union said the government, specifically DHS, should be focused on other critical issues.“DHS should not be prioritizing the protection of property over the wellbeing of Black and Brown communities. DHS has proven time and time again that it cannot be trusted to protect human life. The fact that they are now being deputized to protect property shows exactly where this administration’s priorities are,” Andrea Flores, deputy director of immigration policy for the ACLU said in a statement to ABC News. “Our government should be focusing resources on keeping communities of color safe and investing resources in investigating threats to the wellbeing of these communities not turning additional law enforcement resources against them and further militarizing our streets.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

February 13, 2020 /Sports News – National Students from LeBron James’ school surprised with free college tuition for 4 years FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(AKRON, Ohio) — Students from LeBron James’ I Promise School in Ohio received the surprise of a lifetime that will make the next move in their education a slam dunk.The LeBron James Family Foundation announced Wednesday that it will provide four years of free tuition for eligible students in the school’s first graduating class in partnership with Kent State University. The group of high school juniors from the NBA superstar’s public school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, visited Kent State University where university officials spoke to the room of eager students.“You are Mr. LeBron James’ first class, his first love, it all started because of you,” Melody Tankersley, interim senior vice president and provost at KSU, said.Todd Diacon, KSU president, helped to reveal the big surprise, asking the students to retrieve an envelope that was under their chairs. Inside every envelope was a card from the school that read, “Kent State guarantees your tuition free for four years! You will also receive free room and meal plan for your first year.”“We are doing this because we know of the transformative power of a higher education and a college degree, but most of all we’re doing this because you guys have demonstrated over the past several years that you have the grit, that you have the determination, that you have the dreams to succeed,” Diacon said.The Lakers star retweeted multiple videos from the I Promise School and his foundation to help share the good news.James first opened the public school in 2018 through the LeBron James Family Foundation to help at-risk youth.
