The design is carefully inserted into the urban fabric of the Tudela old quarter. This area is signified by the Jewish, Muslim and Christian footprints. Yet, the surroundings are defined by the massive condition derived from its medieval heritage. The narrow and tortuous streets are characterized by the texturized rendered walls and the wood galleries. The house merges into this both cultural and physical preexistence.Save this picture!SectionThe internal space takes place in between two façades. An external façade is defined as a part of the public space. Therefor it is conscious of the relation with the buildings nearby. And it carefully takes into account the public condition of the category. Its main elements are solid, stable. Just a few small gestures remind the quotidian use. As the handrail deformation, prepared to assemble the traditional flowers pots.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe courtyard façade, and also we include the roof into this category, it is informal. And it reflects the everyday life dynamism. Its geometry is adaptive depending on the internal necessities. Stairs and courtyard are intertwined. The stairs landings are transformed into playing space, reading space or even workspace, facing the court. It is casual, alive as wood is.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe building structure reflexes these two different moments. So, it is strict in the façade and adaptive to the courtyard. The use of the materials is rough, expressive, sincere. White terrazzo pavements, plaster walls, wooden plans and concrete roof slabs define the inner spaces. The sustainability strategy is based on the strong walls isolation and the effectiveness of the courtyard as a thermal regulator.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricExternally, the house aims being discreet but flirty, seduced by Sant Jorge Church, the Cathedral and the chip massive walls. Its interior twists and becomes alive with the magic mystery of a trapped maple tree. It dances, as we do, alone at home, while we are cooking, drinking and listening music.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: AZ AWARDS 2015Architecture NewsHousing Extension in Puerto de Santa María / Yunes – TortoleroSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/586949/nko-house-in-tudela-lagula-arquitectes-ahedo-studio Clipboard Save this picture!© Adrià Goula+ 19 Share NKO House in Tudela / Lagula Arquitectes + Studio Ahedo Year:  Photographs Spain Area:  316 m² Area:  316 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Tudela, Spain 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/586949/nko-house-in-tudela-lagula-arquitectes-ahedo-studio Clipboard Year:  “COPY” Architects: Lagula Arquitectes, Studio Ahedo Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeLagula ArquitectesOfficeFollowStudio Ahedo OfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTudelaMies van der Rohe AwardHousesSpainPublished on January 18, 2015Cite: “NKO House in Tudela / Lagula Arquitectes + Studio Ahedo ” 18 Jan 2015.

Texas officials scramble to administer 5,000 COVID vaccines after power loss

first_imgHouston MethodistBY: SASHA PEZENIK AND IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(HOUSTON) — Health officials in Texas scrambled to administer over 5,000 vaccine doses before they expired after the harsh winter storm hitting the state knocked out the power of the freezers storing the vaccines.Harris County public health officials said that their facility that stored the Moderna vaccine lost power early Monday morning and a backup generator also failed. The freezers that kept 8,430 vaccine doses at their containment temperature were among the affected equipment, they said.“We got to work under the mission to avoid losing those vaccines with the loss of power, and we quickly put together a plan to allocate and to salvage them,” Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said at a news conference Monday evening.The judge said county officials put a plan a place to “expedite” allocation of those vaccines to locations where there were large groups of people, and that didn’t require too much driving, and with appropriate medical personnel on site to administer the doses.“We were looking for places where there were already large numbers of people, or where there were, nurses, trained medical professionals who could administer the vaccines, and where we wouldn’t need folks to drive somewhere in this very dangerous weather and road conditions,” Hidalgo said.Officials were able to distribute 5,410 doses from the affected facility to four designated centers. The Harris County Jail received 3,000 doses, Methodist Hospital received 1,000, Rice University received 810, doses and 600 doses went to LBJ Hospital and Ben Taub hospital, according to Hidalgo.The remaining doses were saved after the health officials got some promising news from Moderna, according to the judge.“They gave us updated guidance, specific to us, that the vaccine supply [that] we thought we were going to lose in a few hours, we could actually re-refrigerate, and administer later to our waitlist,” Hidalgo said. “So roughly half…of the vaccines have been distributed, and the rest have been put back in storage for distribution per our normal process.”The state has been hit with power problems all weekend following a winter storm that dropped several inches of snow and brought temperatures to below freezing. Power outages in the state have impacted at least 3.6 million customers as of 5:30 p.m. ET.Officials said that some Texas customers would not have power for the rest of the day.ABC News’ Timmy Truong contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Local authorities unmoved by threat of strike action

first_imgLocal government employers will not be increasing their 3 per cent pay offerdespite unions’ strike threat of action for the first time in 23 years. Francesca Okosi, vice-president of Socpo, told Personnel Today that localgovernment could not afford a higher increase. She said: “I am disappointed they are balloting. They must understandthat we are the poor cousins of the public sector and it is the best offer wecan give.” Last week, local government pay negotiators increased the offer by 0.5 to 3per cent for 1.2 million. The unions rejected the pay offer despite it meaning employees would get apay rise double the rate of inflation, and the lowest paid employees in thesector would earn 17 per cent more than the national minimum wage. Okosi said: “A lot of local authorities could not afford last year’spay rise which led to many holding back on recruitment and cutting some posts,which is not beneficial to union members.” Local authorities unmoved by threat of strike actionOn 5 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Honduras Requests International Aid for Fight against Crime

first_img On February 1, Honduras requested international aid for the fight that the government is waging against high levels of crime, especially due to the participation of police officers in organized-crime activities, Security Minister Pompeyo Bonilla announced. “We’re requesting cooperation both in terms of recommendations and in terms of everything with which friendly countries might be able to help us,” Bonilla said following a meeting with ambassadors from various countries, in which Foreign Minister Arturo Corrales, Communications Minister Miguel Bonilla, and legislators participated. Honduras has a homicide rate of 82 per 100,000 inhabitants, the highest in the world, according to a UN report. Porfirio Lobo’s administration admits that the problem of insecurity in Honduras has gotten out of hand, upon the discovery in October that entire police precincts — some 14,500 men — were part of gangs engaged in drug trafficking, kidnapping, assault, murder for hire, and extortion. “There’s great cooperation with friendly countries; they’re collaborating with diagnostic studies and recommendations of what we should do (…) in order to respond to the Honduran people with peace and security,” the security minister emphasized. Bonilla mentioned a recent diagnostic study of the police force by Colombian experts, which reported “generalized corruption,” “indifference in providing services,” and “lack of training.” Three experts from the Chilean Carabineros, the country’s national paramilitary police force, have been in Honduras since January 29 to conduct an evaluation of the police and present recommendations on how to overcome the problems. On January 31, Congress approved a decree to purge the police, the Public Prosecutor’s Office, and the judicial branch through actions adopted by a commission made up of domestic and foreign experts. The commission will be able “to investigate within the National Police, throughout its structure and from top to bottom, acts of corruption, violations of human rights, crimes of various kinds, modes of operation in conducting criminal activities, police abuses in the various municipalities where they operate, and criminal structures existing within the police force.” By Dialogo February 03, 2012last_img read more
