The existing property and residence of postwar years was already rebuilt in the 90ies of the last century. Now it has been extended to an ensemble by an additional building. The open courtyard was completed and the existing garage partially built on.

The various sights and the path of the sun had a big influence on the concept of the design. The classic way to organize space (living downstairs, sleeping upstairs) was turned upside down. The living takes place on the top floor in order to allow grand views and bright rooms. A morning and evening terrace crown the house. While the eastern terrace grants views towards the town Haag and the central space of Wels/Linz the western terrace enables views towards the forest of Hausruck. The entrance and the bedrooms are located on the medium floor. The ground floor which is on the same level as the garden accommodates a home office and a guest room.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe medium and the top floor are placed on a solid base which has been extended through a supporting wall towards the south where it completes the courtyard. The top floors which are covered by gray Eternit integrate the garage into the new ensemble.

MAD Architects Unveil Their First US Residential Project

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/644493/mad-architects-unveil-their-first-us-residential-project Clipboard CopyMAD Architects has unveiled what will be their first US residential project, 8600 Wilshire. Planned to be built in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, the 18-unit “hillside village” will be perched atop commercial space and united by a water-efficient “living wall” that was inspired by the local flora.As MAD says, the project “demonstrates founder Ma Yansong’s core design philosophy: to coalesce nature and community into a living environment among high-density cities.” It is expected to break ground this October, and complete in 2016. Save this picture!© MAD ArchitectsFrom the architects: Bringing the nature found on the adjacent foothills of Los Angeles into the city of Beverly Hills, 8600 Wilshire mimics a small sinuous white hill boasting an 18-unit residential village atop commercial space. Clustered white glass villas and trees ascend upward to contour the Beverly Hills skyline and provide a distinctive streetscape on Wilshire Boulevard. The “hillside village” offers a variety of housing types for city residents, including three townhouses, five villas, two studios and eight condominiums. The massing of the village cultivates community with the added benefit of individual balcony-patios to maintain independence and privacy. Villa residents experience a balance between public and private as the incandescent villas appear opaque from the street, yet reveal a transparent façade facing the private garden, townhouse and condominium units. Save this picture!© MAD ArchitectsThe village is wrapped in a water-efficient “living wall” of native, drought-tolerant succulents and vines. Undulating around perforated windows on the façade, this vertical garden extends interior space to the exterior balconies and provides a natural green-screen for condominium residents. Along Wilshire Boulevard, the living wall lifts off the ground to reveal glass storefronts at ground level. The resulting effect is a floating plinth that resembles local privacy hedges and conceals an elevated courtyard. Hidden away from the street is an elevated courtyard accented by a canopy of trees and native plantings. At the center of this secret garden is a water feature flowing gently to a secondary reflecting pool in the lobby below. As residents leave the everyday bustle of the city, they find solitude at 8600 Wilshire in a garden valley—at home in nature. In high-density cities, Modernist and Post-Modernist housing typically prioritized functions and formats over human relationships to the environment. For 8600 Wilshire, MAD considers the possibility of a new model for West Coast vernacular amid the sprawling density of Los Angeles. MAD purposes a harmonious architectural space of human experience by placing residents in the spiritual landscape of nature.

The project is about a small apartment with seven rooms in Binh Thanh District, a nearly central area in Ho Chi Minh City. The site has unique slightly curved shape by merging several plots of different sizes with the total length of around 40 meters. It is located in a high density area surrounded by two or three-storey buildings. On initial inspection of the site, we felt that there is much potential due to: “remaining urban open space / void created haphazardly in the crowded city”. Therefore, on careful consideration, we concluded that this open ‘urban’ space can be utilized to design both an attractive and well-designed open spaced building harnessing the natural daylight and wind.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!Concept SketchSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe volume of the building is formed by optimization of the licensed construction boundary according to building regulation. Based on the study on the ‘cross-sectional’ perspective, a large open courtyard is placed in the middle of the building and a U-shaped solid mass is created by two ‘towers’ with the connection at the ground floor. Furthermore, we create a void for connecting the garden-space on ground floor to the open-area courtyard. In addition, we prepared the “Lanai (=semi-outdoor space)” for each room, exposed to the courtyard. These outside spaces (open-area courtyard, garden space, and Lanai) are organically connected each other making use of the “fresh” air-circulation and deep day lighting penetration for whole of the building. A lot of outside space enhances occupants’ living style with a deep connection to the outdoor found in tropical areas.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAccording to the client’s request, we tried to utilize the local materials in Vietnam for low cost construction. The terracotta screen block is very popular in Vietnam. We combine different patterns of blocks, creating a characteristic Façade and outside space in the courtyard, which makes use of natural ventilation, passive cooling by shading, while simultaneously enhancing occupant security.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiIn the outside space, we planted a lot of greenery making use of the natural abundance of natural daylight and natural ventilation, creating an enjoyable outdoor space. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiOriginally published on March 06, 2017. Project gallerySee allShow lessFrom Equitable Architecture to Exploring New Environments: 5 Young Practices in EuropeArticlesImagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero): “Architectural Photography Need…Interviews Share CopyAbout this officeSanuki Daisuke architectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsBình ThạnhIcebergOn InstagramBrick ApartmentsVietnamPublished on August 25, 2020Cite: “Apartment in Binh Thanh / Sanuki Daisuke architects ” 25 Aug 2020.

84th Indiana State FFA Convention set to Begin

first_img 2013 IN FFA convention opensThe 84th Indiana FFA State Convention is getting underway on the campus of Purdue University and runs through Thursday afternoon when the next state officer team will be introduced. Again this year well over 2,000 FFA members from all over Indiana will attend.“We have already pre-registered over 2,000 and I would expect another at least 500 on top of that” said Steve Hickey, the Director of Leadership Programs at the Indiana FFA Association. “Summers are filled with conflicts but we have a lot of kids come very, very excited for both the contests and the convention itself.”With all those conflicts pulling high school students in every direction, how is FFA membership fairing? Hickey tells HAT it’s been a great year.“We have not just maintained, we’ve had an exciting year from a growth standpoint and actually have our highest membership of 10,300 members, which is the highest we’ve had in over 20 years. So we’re really excited. That’s almost a 900 member increase from just last year alone and we believe that’s only going to grow.”Hickey said they continue to see school corporations add ag programs and some schools are adding ag teachers, “and the only time we seem to lose a program is if they literally cannot find a teacher to replace one that’s leaving. A lack of qualified ag teachers is the biggest challenge in the profession right now.”Maybe this week’s convention will spawn some future qualified ag teachers.“That is certainly one of the goals,” Hickey said. “It’s a real focus of our teachers and of the FFA, to really focus with kids on what a great career option this is. So we’re hopeful and working hard for the future.” Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News 84th Indiana State FFA Convention set to Begin 84th Indiana State FFA Convention set to Begin By Andy Eubank – Jun 16, 2013 Previous articlePractices Improving Soil Health Also Reduce Erosion in Extreme WeatherNext article25×25 Urges House to Continue Prosperity of Renewable Energy Andy Eubanklast_img read more

As vaccinations lag, Israel combats online misinformation

first_img Facebook As vaccinations lag, Israel combats online misinformation Facebook Pinterest JERUSALEM (AP) — After surging ahead in the race to vaccinate its population against the coronavirus, Israel is blaming online misinformation for a sudden slowdown in the campaign. Now, officials are fighting back. Israel’s Health Ministry, which is spearheading the vaccination efforts, is employing both warnings and incentives as it tries to persuade reluctant holdouts to get immunized. It has beefed up a digital task force to counter spurious claims about the vaccines, while local governments are turning to DJs and free food to lure people to vaccination centers. Concerts and museums could soon be off limits to the unvaccinated. “Decide whether you are part of the celebration or whether you will be left behind,” Health Minister Yuli Edelstein declared on Twitter. “Just lend a shoulder to the vaccine.” Since launching its COVID-19 vaccine campaign in December, over a quarter of the population — 2.5 million people — has received both doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, according to the Health Ministry. Over 42% have received the first shot. The vaccination rates are among the highest in the world, and many countries are looking at the Israeli experience to understand what may lie ahead in the future. But in a cause for concern, Israel has seen a drop in immunization rates since making the vaccine available to everyone over the age of 16 this month. In February, Israel averaged just over 106,000 vaccinations per day, down from January’s daily average of more than 127,000 per day, according to Health Ministry statistics. The reluctance of some groups in the population to get vaccinated is a key reason why infection rates remain high. Israel, a country of 9.3 million people, has reported over 5,000 new cases each day over the past week, according to the ministry. In all, the country has recorded over 723,000 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic and nearly 5,400 deaths — over 20% of them in the past month. Last week Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has pinned his reelection hopes on the vaccination campaign, said the only obstacle to completing the task was “the fake news and the superstitious and sometimes malicious beliefs that are planted in the public and on the internet.” The Health Ministry has reportedly invested millions of dollars in its efforts to educate the public. The task has been complicated because different segments of society have resisted vaccination calls for different reasons. In the case of the ultra-Orthodox, some influential religious leaders have called on their followers not be immunized. Meanwhile, Israel’s Arab minority tends to suffer from a lack of trust in the Jewish leadership. And younger Israelis often think they can’t get seriously ill. Einav Shimron, the Health Ministry’s deputy director for international relations, said the ministry is working with physicians and religious leaders to counter misinformation, such as claims that the vaccine can cause infertility. The ministry manages a command center with 11 trackers who monitor social media activity for anti-vaccination posts in Hebrew, Russian, Amharic, Arabic and English on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Telegram. The center is adding more staffers in the coming days. The undertaking is akin to whack-a-mole for conspiracy theories. Shimron said center alerts the Justice Ministry to any misinformation, and the ministry immediately presses the social media networks to remove the false claims. “There are several times we even called the police” on grounds that the false claims are a public health risk, she said. In the ultra-Orthodox community, where internet use is low, the response is often more low tech. Anti-vaccination rabbis have posted false claims on posters — known as pashkevils — commonly used to spread messages among the faithful. The ministry is countering with pashkevils of its own. Rabbi Yuval Hacohen Asherov, a popular Jewish preacher with an online following who has stated that germs do not cause diseases, has posted numerous anti-vaccine videos with hundreds of thousands of views. A recent video falsely claimed the COVID-19 vaccine caused death. “Why run? Why vaccinate now? Let’s do it in another half a year — maybe. Let’s see what happens,” Ashrov said. “Why should the Swiss and Chinese use us as guinea pigs to see what happens?” The Health Ministry has asked the Justice Ministry to try to get Asherov’s videos pulled from YouTube and said that he “endangers the public.” Asherov declined requests for comment. It was not clear if YouTube has been formally approached. But Avishai Matia, another anti-vaccine activist, said his Facebook and Twitter accounts with thousands of followers were suspended this month in what he called a “violent reaction by the technology giants in cooperation with the WHO and other groups.” Matia has wrongly claimed the Pfizer vaccine is “an experimental drug” that is being tested on Israeli citizens. In fact, it has been granted approval for emergency use in the U.S. and Europe. In exchange for getting sufficient quantities for its population, Israel has agreed to share data with Pfizer, though it is not conducting any experiments. Facebook did not respond to requests for comment about its collaboration with Israeli authorities. At the same time, authorities are devising incentives for people to get the jab. The Health and Culture ministries said Sunday that museums, libraries, concert venues and other cultural events will reopen later this month — but only to those who have been fully immunized. The Health Ministry is also enlisting dozens of Israeli social media influencers to promote immunization in concert with its own online video campaign. One new message released on Valentine’s Day showed a man presenting his girlfriend with a small box appearing to contain an engagement ring. “Will you get vaccinated with me?” he asks, as she opens the box to find a vaccine vial. The ultra-Orthodox town of Bnei Brak has tried to encourage immunization by serving free cholent — a hearty stew — to residents who turn up for a vaccine. A municipal spokesman said Thursday’s “Operation Cholent” brought in three times the typical number of recipients. Holon, a Tel Aviv suburb, has enlisted the help of DJs and a party atmosphere to draw over-16s to receive immunizations. Ministry figures show Israelis between 16-30 have been vaccinated at levels far below the national average. For many young and middle-aged Israelis, however, the availability of coronavirus vaccines has been enough of an incentive to line up. At an immunization center in Tel Aviv, Moran Keret, 44, said that a friend convinced her to go. “The corona is not going away. So if it’s not disappearing, I’m here.” By Digital AIM Web Support – February 15, 2021 WhatsApp WhatsAppcenter_img Local NewsWorld News TAGS  Twitter Pinterest Twitter Previous articleUK’s chief mouser celebrates 10 years on the prowlNext articleThe Latest: No. 1 Barty into Australian Open quarterfinals Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

We were told how the Northwest Gateway Initiative is failing to deliver on a number of levels. Committee Members expressed concern that this flagship initiative, which was agreed entirely in the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement, is not progressing as it should.  “We have long understood the compelling case for delivery of the A5 road upgrade. There is no doubt that the longstanding dearth of modern transport infrastructure to the North West is seriously hindering development, and the relatively high unemployment and poverty rates can be directly attributed to this lack of connectivity. The lack of progress on this key project in the North West underlines the need for the channels of practical cooperation to be re-invigorated. “The Committee agreed a number of actions to highlight the concerns raised at today’s meeting at Ministerial and Official levels. We intend to write to the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport to outline the imperative of speedy delivery of the A5. The Committee also intend to invite Officials from relevant Departments to consider how this road project, and other key areas of the Gateway Initiative, can be progressed.

The acquisition notice was challenged by the appellant in Rajasthan High Court and was dismissed. Subsequently, a division bench appeal was filed before the HC and the during its pendency, a “declaration” under section 6 of the Act of 1953 was issued by the State of Rajasthan on 13.09.1975. The HC quashed the acquisition proceedings. Following this, the Respondent as well as the State of Rajhasthan filed special leave petitions which were dismissed in 1994.Notably, during the pendency of the aforementioned SLPs, an agreement was arrived at between the parties in the instant case (and the State of Rajasthan) which was to the effect that out of 249 bighas of land, 104 would be retained by the appellant and the remaining (145 bighas) would be “sold” to the Respondent, subject to the fixation of price of land, construction etc. to be finalised through Arbitration.An Agreement was entered into by parties and the matter of determination was decided by the Arbitrator by Award dated 09.06.1985. In the said Award, the Arbitrator mentioned that the parties had “referred their dispute regarding determination of compensation of land to me as Sole Arbitrator”.The Arbitrator Justice Chandra Bhan Bhargav decided the compensation payable for by the Respondent to the tune of Rs. 12,18,700/- and passed an Award, which was subsequently accepted by Respondent and Appellant and filed before the Additional DJ.The Appellant then filed its objections to the Award before the DJ, which were allowed and the matter was sent back to the Sole Arbitrator.The Respondent challenged the Order of DJ before the Rajasthan HC, which was allowed and the HC reaffirmed the order of Sole Arbitrator in the first instance (dated 09.06.1985).The Appellant challenged the affirmation before the Supreme Court vide appeal and it was dismissed, whereupon the Award attained finality.The Respondent filed for execution of the Award in terms of execution of the Sale deed before the DJ and the Appellants oppsed the same, denying any such direction of execution of sale deed by the Final Award. The ADJ, allowed the Execution application, which was challenged by the Appellants in the Rajasthan HC vide Civil Revison and subsequently the Respondent filed a suit for specific performance, which was withdrawn thereafter, while the subsistence of Civil Revision Petition (of Appellant) continued.Rajasthan HC dismissed the Civil Revision petition of the Appellants and also noted that Respondent’s withdrawal of the suit for specific performance woild not amount to admission by the respondent Company that the Award and subsequent order based on it, were not suitable and enforceable.Aggrieved, the Appellant(s) were in Appeal in the present case.What the Court held:The Court allowed the Appellant(s) appeal and held that the quashed the impugned Judgement of Rajasthan High Court. The bench noted that the Award of the Arbitrator in the present case was not a conclusive contract between the parties which could be executed. The Court noted that a right would only have accrued to the Respondent to purchase the land at the fixed land price, could the Agreement which had been executed between parties been enforced at the behest of Respondent.In light of this, the bench noted,”Going behind the decree for doing complete justice would not mean that the entire nature of the case could be changed, and what was not awarded in favour of the respondent, could be granted by the executing court. It was only after the respondent had exercised its right to purchase the land at the price fixed by the Arbitrator that a right to enforce the Agreement could have arisen in favour of the respondent. The Award of the Arbitrator, in the present case, in itself was not a conclusive contract between the parties, which could be executed” Furthermore, it was held that since neither the Agreement ((dated 1.02.1980) nor the Award (dated 09.06.1985) had  been registered and that the impact of non-registration would result in non-execution of such Award.Arguments on behalf of the Appellants were led by Senior Advocates Sudhir Chandra, Brijender Chahar & Advocate Pradeep Kumar Bakshi (AoR).Arguments on behalf of the Respondent(s) were led by Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave & Advocate Nitin Kumar Thakur (AoR).Case DetailsTitle : Firm Rajasthan Udyog and othersCase No : Civil Appeal No. 2376 of 2020Click Here To Download Judgement[Read Judgement]Next Storylast_img read more
