The project transforms a 1950s apartment into a surreal set where reality and fiction coexist in a quasi-theatrical scene. Thanks to the multidisciplinary approach of its two founders, the studio celebrates the graphic sign, in a project that fuses architecture, theatre, music, and illustration.Save this picture!IllustrationRecommended ProductsShowerAcquabellaBathroom Panel – DecorUrban LightingLouis PoulsenStreet Lighting – Post TopsPorcelain StonewareCosentinoSurfaces – Dekton® Chromica CollectionDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalIn alignment with the wishes of the clients  – a young couple – the architects have, on the one hand with the help of local craftsmen, recovered the pre-existing Venetian terrazzo flooring, while on the other they have completely disrupted the internal distribution to give way to new storytelling.Save this picture!© Paolo FuscoKicking off with the insertion of new materials in correspondence with the traces of the original divisions, the living area is defined by a clear band in black and Botticino marble. The area along the corridor takes up the original design of the flooring with a pinkish binder with pozzolan powder, while the bedroom is tinged with the warm nuances of brick red micro cement. The result is a combination of designs in different grains and colours that creates a “collage” effect, in contrast with the absolute white of the plastered walls.The apartment reveals itself longitudinally along the main wall, which represents the limit between private and representative space and creates a landscape punctuated by three different elements.Save this picture!© Paolo FuscoA white lacquered bridge wardrobe hides a small study: the reader’s refuge, an intimate, silent space, isolated from the rest of the home. A grey-blue flush-to-the-wall door that seems drawn on, gives access to the salle de bain covered in white mosaic with contrasting joints, cut by an ogival passage which gives a glimpse the back wall in peacock-colored enamel and the free washbasin standing. Finally, an arched door in classic blue lacquered wood leads to the sleeping area with clear lines and a welcoming atmosphere. The door, with its wooden profile that juts out 70cm towards the dining room, is the centerpiece of the living area and hides the kitchen furniture from view.Save this picture!© Paolo FuscoThe living room is the largest space in the house: a yellow curtain runs along with the demolished partition, outlining the areas and drawing a soft border between the different functions.Save this picture!© Paolo FuscoRetroscena offers a playful and fantastic vision of the house.

The house is located in a suburban commune of Hanoi which has undergone a rapid process of urbanization. It is designed in a philosophy that it will help shape a place similar to the natural environment in an artificial manner. The proposed structure of the house resembles that of a Cave. The overall structure is made up of and enclosed by two layers of brick wall meeting one another at an intersection, with alternate ‘green’ arrangements of plants and vegetables. Bricks have long been a familiar local material and widely used in rural areas of Vietnam with a simple manual construction method.Save this picture!© Nguyen Tien ThanhThe two built-in layers of wall function as a filter to eliminate the adverse aspects of the external environment (sunshine from the west, dust, noise) and bring nature (light, rain, wind) to where necessary inside.

RSF pays tribute to Asma Jahangir, defender of the freedom to inform

first_img to go further Pakistani human rights activist Asma Jahangir died on 11 February at the age of 66 (photo: Arif Ali / AFP). News Asma Jahangir always fought for democracy and what guarantees democracy, starting with the press. Repeatedly detained, assaulted and threatened with death, she never stopped combatting Pakistan’s dictators, military and intelligence agencies with courage and determination, including as president of the Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan from 2010 to 2012.“The death of Asma Jahangir is a tragic loss for the entire human rights and press freedom movement,” RSF deputy director-general Antoine Bernard said. “With just her courage and the strength of her conviction, she achieved spectacular progress and won admiration in Pakistan and in all the countries where she worked. She truly embodied the universality of our struggle.”“Asma Jahangir was a towering figure in the defence of human rights, including press freedom and free speech,” said Iqbal Khattak, RSF’s representative in Pakistan. “Her sudden death is a major blow for the fight to enable the poorest sectors of the Pakistani population to fully enjoy these fundamental rights, which the powerful security forces and their religious supporters seek to deny the people. She embodied courageous support for journalists’ fight for freedom, and will endure as a powerful symbol of freedom.”As Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Iran for the UN Human Rights Council, Jahangir firmly condemned the harassment of journalists in Iran in an October 2017 report. In 1987, she co-founded the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, which included press freedom and the protection of journalists among its leading causes.Many Pakistani media and journalists’ organizations have paid tribute to this “human rights icon” on social networks and in the press since her death. The recipient of many awards including the 2014 Right Livelihood Award, she will continue as an emblem of the struggle for human rights and democracy in Pakistan.RSF shares the grief of this leading Pakistani activist’s family and offers its condolences to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. Pakistan is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

That’s in contrast to the country as a whole, which saw a slight rise in new builds.The total number of new residential and commercial buildings recorded in Donegal in 2012 was 753, down from 1,149 in 2011.The 753 new buildings identified in Donegal were composed of 696 residential buildings, 49 commercial buildings and 8 were dual-purpose buildings with both residential and commercial elements. These new additions bring the total number of buildings in Donegal to 87,907.The recorded figures highlight that 107 or 14% of this new commercial and residential stock in Donegal are vacant. The data further indicates that 154 buildings across the county were under construction at the end of the year.The decrease in new building additions in Donegal in 2012 of 29% is in contrast to a 2% increase recorded nationally.

Equity Residential sees profits drop 13% in Q4

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Commercial Real EstateMultifamily Market But that trend started reversing in December, and continued to improve at the start of 2021. The occupancy rate for Equity’s urban portfolio was nearly 92 percent in January.“We are encouraged by the recovery in demand in all of our markets and especially in our urban submarkets,” CEO Mark Parrell said during Wednesday’s earnings call.The company owns and operates 304 multifamily properties, many of which are in big cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and New York.To weather the storm, the landlord used concessions to lure tenants at the height of the pandemic. But it’s scaled those back in the past four weeks, with between 25 to 30 percent of leasing applications coming with some kind of concession versus 50 percent in November, said COO Michael Manelis.“We have a long way to go but recovery is in sight,” he said.Still, the company intends to unload a few properties in places such as New York City and San Francisco if the price is right.“It’s not like we’re not interested in staying invested in the area. It’s just spreading the money out a little bit,” Parrell said.“I think New York will continue to be a great urban center, and San Francisco will eventually recover,” he added. “But I think places like Denver now have an urban center. It’s not as dense as it needs to be, but it’s attractive.”Contact Akiko Matsuda Full Name* Message* Sam Zell (Getty, iStock)There may be a light at the end of the tunnel for Sam Zell’s Equity Residential: Its earnings dropped less in the fourth quarter than they did in the previous one.The REIT’s net income in the fourth quarter was $263 million, down 13 percent from $277.8 million in the same period last year, the company reported Wednesday.While the year-over-year drop is significant, it’s much smaller than the 58 percent year-over-year drop it saw in the third quarter. Its total revenue during the fourth quarter was $613.4 million, down by 10 percent year-over-year.The company’s multifamily portfolio was severely affected by urban flight after the pandemic began. As tenants in cities like New York City and San Francisco decamped to the suburbs and smaller cities, the average occupancy rate of the REIT’s urban apartments plummeted by nearly 8 percentage points. It went from nearly 96.5 percent in early March to about 88.5 percent in late October.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreEquity Residential sees profits drop 58%There’s an exodus from NYC.

Spatial distribution of average vorticity in the high-latitude ionosphere and its variation with interplanetary magnetic field direction and season

first_imgWe present a technique to measure the magnetic field-aligned vorticity of meso-scale plasma flows in the F-region ionosphere using line-of-sight velocity measurements made by the Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN).Vorticity is often used as a proxy for magnetic field-aligned current (FAC) intensity in the ionosphere but also provides information about turbulent processes in the ionosphere and magnetosphere.Using 6 years (2000-2005 inclusive) of vorticity measurements made by 6 SuperDARN radars in the northern hemisphere we have compiled, for the first time, maps of average vorticity across the northern polar ionosphere.These maps have been subdivided according to different seasonal and interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) conditions.The variations in the morphology of the vorticity maps with IMF direction match very closely those seen in maps of average FAC intensity (determined using different methods and instrumentation), suggesting that vorticity is a good proxy for FAC in an averaged sense.The variations in the morphology of the vorticity maps with season show differences from those seen in the FAC maps, illustrating that ionospheric conductance plays a major role in determining the differences between measurements of vorticity and FAC.last_img read more

Bill Legalizing CBD Oil Passes House

first_imgFEBRUARY 27TH, 2018  BRITNEY TAYLOR INDIANA A bill that would allow the sale of CBD oil with low THC levels unanimously passes the House Tuesday. Senate Bill 52 passed 93-0.This bill would allow Hoosiers to buy CBD oil that contains no more than 0.3 percent of THC, and no other controlled substances.CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive derivative of the cannabis plant. CBD oil has been shown to help with various medical conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, and severe pain.The oil would be available for purchase over-the-counter from retailers across the state.The Senate passed a similar bill on February 5th, 35-13. A conference committee will convene to work out a few differences between the two versions before heading to Governor Eric Holcomb’s desk.This bill is authored by Senator Jim Tomes and co-sponsored by Representative Wendy McNamara.You can see how legislators voted on this bill below.Britney TaylorWeb ProducerMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me:TwitterFacebook FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
