The site is on an island on the west coast of Sweden, and has a unique position perched on a steep mountain rock located close to the highest point in the landscape. It offers wide and open views over the sea and the horizon. The client wanted two houses, one for the parents and one for the children that are also adults by now, both with extra rooms for visiting friends.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tham & Videgård ArkitekterThe challenge offered by the steep site was solved with two terraced levels built up from the local stones used for foundation walls of many of the older houses on these islands that were originally populated by fishermen and captains. The resulting platforms are integrated within the rocky landscape, set against the protruding bedrock. Above the solid stonewalls and concrete terrace, a light structural framework of wood defines the contour of the houses. An inner ring of large glass sliding doors separate the interior from the terrace, a continuous loggia space encircles all four facades.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tham & Videgård ArkitekterSave this picture!Plan house 1Save this picture!Courtesy of Tham & Videgård ArkitekterStairs to access the house platforms are included in the solid base while a few steps and stonewalls are the only additions to the natural environment, the rest has been left untouched.

It is enclosed on all sides by an overpowering city fabric. The design was incorporated into a challenging triangular site profile with acute angles at two of its corners. Whilst two of its edges faces vehicular roads, an edifice engulfs its third. The western corner manifests the highest point on site, surrounded by running pavements and roads along its periphery. The terrain gradually slopes down along it’s northern edge from west to east.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JTaking advantage of the sharp angled plot, the building towers in a defensive fashion to fight against the paraphernalia of the imposing city fabric. Its elevational profile has anarmor-like appeal,further accentuated with a large corten steel sheeting along the northern facade. It conceals all activities within the three-sided fortification, and showcases a sudden bout of exposure at the terrace of the building. The construction appears to levitate at different horizontal planes adding a certain depth to the facade surfaces. The primary bulk is lifted off the street level translating into a stilt parking at ground level. Whilst the terrace level parasol manifests a sharp angled concrete slab, giving it a sense of finesse.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe building sports unfinished neutral concrete bands all along it’s surface corners and edges. It is strategically juxtaposed with the flame red accent of a rusted and perforated corten steel sheeting. The sheeting is framed delicately within the concrete frames, creating a protective veil-like fabric along the north facade.Save this picture!Conceptual SectionProgrammatically, the core of the site unifies and divides the layout into two distinctive activity zones resonating vertically and horizontally through the building. It houses a double height living space and stairwell. From here, activities radiate towards the western and eastern wings on either side of the triangular layout. The first floor accommodates a kitchen, dining and spill out terrace towards the eastern wing, while the western wing accommodates a bedroom with an attached bath.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe concept resonates to the second floor layout as well. Individual bed and bath spaces are accommodated in both wings that eventually converge at a pedestrian bridge at the core. The terrace at the third floor level, opens up significantly creating a scenic vantage point to the generously canopied tree lines of the city. It accommodates an enclosed terrace lounge at the core, surrounded by open terraces along its periphery. A guest bed and bath sits at the eastern wing of the terrace layout.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Terrace Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe defensive fortress-like exteriors suddenly translate into warm and protective finishes of the interiors. The spaces showcase rustic and earthy tones against a neutral palette of walls and flooring, adhering to the scheme of the building. This gives ample room for earthy accents and interior landscaping that aesthetically enliven the spaces. The dappled light streaming in through the corten sheeting screen, adds the finishing touch to the scene.

Growth Energy: American Drivers Top Three Billion Miles Driven on E15

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 18, 2018 SHARE Home Energy Growth Energy: American Drivers Top Three Billion Miles Driven on E15 Facebook Twitter Growth Energy: American Drivers Top Three Billion Miles Driven on E15 SHARE American drivers have logged another billion miles on E15 in just the past three months, according to Growth Energy, which says the total number of miles driven on E15 now sits at more than three billion. Growth Energy CEO Emily Schor says the growth comes from “forward-thinking retailers who have figured out that E15 is smart business” and from consumers who rely on the “value proposition” of E15 fuels.Growth Energy, which works with the nonprofit Prime the Pump, helps build the needed infrastructure and distribution of biofuel blends, which they say give drivers more choice at the pump. E15 is approved for use in all vehicles 2001 and newer, as well as in all flex-fuel vehicles, which combined represent more than 87 percent of vehicles on the road.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleAg Coalition Formed to Support NAFTA Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Syrian citizen journalists and activists capture 2012 Netizen Prize

first_img SyriaMiddle East – North Africa March 12, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Syrian citizen journalists and activists capture 2012 Netizen Prize Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists March 12, 2021 Find out more to go further News Organisation RSF_en News Help by sharing this information center_img Receive email alerts News Pictures of the ceremony hereSyrian citizen journalists and activists Monday were awarded the 2012 Reporters Without Borders Netizen Prize sponsored by Google.The media center of the Local Coordination Committees brings together groups of citizen journalists to collect and disseminate, in real time, information and images of Syria’s uprising. Jasmine, a 27-year-old Syrian activist who lives now in Canada, accepted the award on behalf of the activists inside of the country.“The Netizen Prize proves that our voices were heard and that we succeeded in delivering the stories of millions of Syrians who are struggling on the ground to achieve what they have always dreamed – to live in freedom and dignity,” Jasmine said. “Thank you for acknowledging our presence as an active and effective media organization.”Syrian journalists and bloggers are threatened and arrested by the government. International news organizations are, for the most part, kept out of the country. In their absence, the committees are almost the only way to keep the world abreast of the violence wracking the country. They emerged spontaneously following the start of the Syrian revolution last March, bringing together human rights activists and local journalists, and now are found in most cities and towns across the country.Informants on the ground send information and the committees confirm it from multiple sources. A third group translates the news into English and distributes it on the group’s website. Videos and pictures are posted on Facebook and on a photo blog.‘There are millions of stories that made us cry, laugh, get mixed emotions since the uprising began,” Jasmine explained “We were talking to a mother of three detainees and she made us promise each other that no matter what, we will never stop covering the events of our beloved Syria.”The award was distributed on World Day Against Cyber Censorship at a ceremony in Paris. 2012 nominees came from around the globe, from Russia to Syria to Brazil, China and beyond. Their geographic diversity is a reflection of the growing impact of the Net. Once connected, each one of us is now able to share our thoughts and observations with the world.But freedom of information remains fragile and digital segregation increases. Reporters Without Borders has counted 200 cases of netizens arrests in 2011, up 30% over the previous year. Five were killed. This is the highest level of violence against netizens ever recorded. More than 120 netizens are currently in jail for keeping us informed.”Netizens are more and more persecuted also because they have become instrumental in the news gathering process” said Dominique Gerbaud, President of Reporters Without Borders. Governments are clamping down with increasingly sophisticated methods of censorship, surveillance and repression. More than ever, Reporters Without Borders is proud to have established with Google’s support an award that recognizes and rewards the courage of netizens.”Google products are blocked in about 25 of 125 countries in which the company operates. Forty countries engage in active censorship, up from four a decade ago. “The Internet allows courageous individuals in Syria and elsewhere to tell their story to the world,” said Google France President Jean-Marc Tassetto. “The Netizen Prize and our work with Reporters Without Borders testifies to our belief that access to information will lead to greater freedom and greater social and economic development.”Reporters Without Borders inaugurated the annual World Day against Cyber Censorship in 2008, with the aim of protecting a single Internet, free, and accessible to all. Google joined in 2010 to sponsor the Netizen of the Year award, which recognises a user, a blogger or a dissident who stood up for his work in defence of freedom of expression on the Net. An international jury of media experts, bloggers and representatives of Reporters Without Borders branches has voted to choose the winner who receives prize money of EUR 2,500.In 2010, the Netizen Prize was awarded to Iranian cyberfeminists. Last year, it went to Nawaat, a group blog run by independent Tunisian bloggers.

Picture: Oisin McHugh University of Limerick Students’ Union has launched a new hardship support service for students experiencing extreme financial difficulties. The new service, which includes a textile and food bank, is also environmentally friendly, helping to reduce waste among students and staff.A student hardship fund already exists offering financial support to those most in need, however, those working at the frontline of the service identified the related issue of food poverty as an urgent concern not currently being addressed.“It came to our attention that quite often students leave it to the last minute to seek financial assistance without realising that the application can take a number of days to process. At that point, students can sometimes have absolutely nothing and indeed not have eaten. With the help of donations from our on-campus students and the financial aid committee, we decided to create a food pantry here in the SU, with non-perishable foods in order to help students through this time,” explained Adele O’Carroll, head of facilities, supports and services with ULSU.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In December, the accommodation office on behalf of ULSU, accepted donations of non-perishable food, clean bedclothes and blankets from students not returning for the second semester, including international students and UL students taking part in study-abroad and cooperative-education programmes.Pictured was Roberta Harrington, ULSU Welfare Officer, Sean Bailey Whyte, Student Information and Support Coordinator and Adele O Carroll, Head of Facilities, Supplies and Services. Picture: Oisin McHugh“With these items, and others bought through the hardship fund, we have set up a food pantry as well as a bed-in-a-bag offering for any students needing to avail of the service. So far we have had a really positive response from students donating items as a means of helping other students who find themselves experiencing real hardship,” Adele said.“We are currently accepting donations of sealed, non-perishable food items, clean towels and bedding and financial donations to the student hardship fund administered by the financial aid committee. Unfortunately, this is a very real and regular need for many students,” she continued.This initiative comes just months after the students’ union introduced another environmentally and socially conscious campaign whereby it installed water filling stations in the Students’ Centre providing chilled, filtered water free of charge for use by the entire campus community, saving students the cost of purchasing bottles of water and also reducing plastic bottle waste.For further information on supporting the student pantry or Student Hardship Fund scheme, please email: [email protected] about education here.
