Unfortunately after some time of development the project had to be canceled by the contractor.Save this picture!© Pedro KokOriginally it was designed using steel frame as structural system, after cancelation we have updated the whole project to use structural concrete blocks, more usual in Brazilian construction, and still a rational modular building system. The project was set aside for a while until came the opportunity to build one unit as a prototype and still be used as home for the housekeepers of a property in a rural district from Campinas.Save this picture!© Pedro KokWe then set off for an experimental construction, where the cost could not exceed R$ 50,000.00 (around US$ 14,000.00), or something around R$ 700.00/m2. The goal: to house a family with two children.Save this picture!Initially, we determined that the house would have 70sqm, enough to provide users better quality of life (Brazil´s federal government has delivered homes with approximate 40sqm in social housing programs as Minha Casa Minha Vida -literal translation My House My Life- without expansion possibility).Save this picture!DiagramThe original design aims to rescue street interaction and conviviality stimulation between residents of the same neighborhood. A frame at the main façade creates an extensive masonry bench next to the sidewalk, creating a favorable permanence place. It’s almost an attempt to rescue smaller cities traditions where people put chairs on sidewalk and enjoy as time passes, watching children playing on streets. The house design is very simple, yet it ensures efficient lighting and natural ventilation in social and service areas. A patio located strategically around the kitchen, office and living room, brings light and air renewal to the more permanency home environments. The courtyard is the guarantee that even with a house attached on its side the project will still have all natural resources necessary for its residents.In addition to kitchen, living room, patio and laundry services, the project can adapt to different internal configurations:3 bedrooms + bathroom + office or 1 suite + 2 bedrooms + bathroomSave this picture!PlansTwo important decisions were taken in order to reduce building costs: Eliminate the roof slab and the exterior and interior plaster. Instead, we used roll texture applied directly on block and a PVC ceiling system together with cement roof to function on an interim basis as insulated roof and slab. A site with many treetops around contributed in preventing overheating inside the building. With good quality concrete blocks it was possible to let them apparent, reducing painting costs.Save this picture!diagramAfter completion we saw ourselves encouraged by the remarkable increase in the quality of life of Casa dos Caseiros residents and since it is difficult to low income population to hire an architect to design aesthetically pleasant and functional homes, we have decided release the project as an OPEN SOURCE project. We will provide (http://www.247arquitetura.com.br/casa-dos-caseiros/) the project free of charge on our website, as a way of democratization of ideas to be improved and adapted by communities.Save this picture!© Pedro KokWe believe that the idea of ​​a network of good projects will inject into the market ways to overcome economic barriers and distances between architect and final client. We lack new typologies and best urban insertions.Save this picture!© Pedro KokIt is very important to remember that adjustments are necessary since the project will be built in different bioclimatic zones, building systems, topography, rules and regulations.Save this picture!© Pedro KokProject gallerySee allShow lessCasas Melhoradas Reimagines Affordable Housing in Maputo, MozambiqueArchitecture NewsRiccardo De Cal: Into the Labyrinth — architetture venezianeExhibition Share Houses ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789540/casa-dos-caseiros-2-arquitetura-design Clipboardlast_img read more

Disturbing wave of prosecutions on eve of national dialogue

first_img News German spyware company FinFisher searched by public prosecutors BahrainMiddle East – North Africa Organisation October 14, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders accuses the authorities of continuing to crack down on journalists and media freedom in violation of the spirit for the national dialogue that King Hamad Ben Issa Al-Khalifa wants to begin tomorrow with the aim of relaunching political reforms after the unrest that began last March and the ensuing repression.Journalists and media are still being prosecuted before military courts, although the state of emergency was lifted on 1 June. The authorities are also maintaining strict control over the circulation of news and information and are pumping out propaganda aimed at both Bahraini and foreign media.Reporters Without Borders calls for a response from the international community that includes the dispatch of a United Nations special rapporteur to Bahrain.Bahrain Society of Photography president Mohamed Salman Al-Sheikh, a freelance photographer who was arrested on 11 May, was brought before a military court in Riffa, the second largest city, on 28 June. His family was not told about at the hearing and therefore was unable to organize his defence. No information has been released about the charges being pressed against this journalist, who has won many international awards.Abbas Al-Murshid, a freelance journalist and writer who was arrested on 16 May, was brought before a judge on 27 June and was told that he was charged with participating in illegal demonstrations, disseminating false information on online forums and inciting hatred against the government. His request to be freed on bail was denied. Security officers present in the courtroom refused to let his wife and lawyer talk to him although the judge had given his permission. He is to be tried by court martial on 7 July.Abdullah Alawi and Jassem Al-Sabbagh, two journalists who were arrested after being forced to resign from the newspaper Al-Bilad, are being prosecuted on charges of publishing false information and photos, and participating in illegal demonstrations. The second hearing in their trial was held on 23 June.As already reported, a military court imposed jail sentences on 22 June on 21 people accused of belonging to terrorist organizations and trying to overthrow the government. Eight of them, including the human rights activist and blogger Abduljalil Al-Singace, were given life sentences. The other 13 got sentences ranging from two to 15 years in prison. The blogger Ali Abdulemam, who was tried in absentia, got 15 years (http://en.rsf.org/bahrain-one-blogger-sentenced-to-life-22-06-2011,40507…).The authorities are keeping reporting about the ongoing trials under strict control, maintaining a ban on coverage of national security cases. The government news agency BNA publishes a daily summary of some of the ongoing trials, but trials involving any journalists other than those with Al-Wasat are usually ignored.The authorities announced on 14 June that they were going to bring a lawsuit against British journalist Robert Fisk, the London-based Independent’s Middle East correspondent, in the United Kingdom for waging a “defamatory and premeditated media campaign” against Bahrain and for alleged bias and unprofessionalism in his coverage of recent events.Fisk has repeatedly criticized the trials of doctors and nurses accused of supporting the anti-government protests. He also reported that Saudi military forces invaded Bahrain without waiting for an invitation from the Bahraini authorities.Reporters Without Borders hails the release of Faysal Hayyat, a sports journalist who was arrested on 8 April, although he is still facing charges of “sports crimes.” A military prosecutor issued a statement saying he would be tried according to established legal procedures. No trial date has so far been announced.The blogger Ali Omid has also been released but seven other netizens and eight journalists, including three photographers, continue to be detained.

No blankets for amputee at University Hospital Limerick

To make matters worse he was not given any blankets whilst in a bed in ward 1C,” Mr Dunne posted.“He spent his first night sleeping with the bare coat on his back over him. He was later amputated the next day. To this day, he is still in hospital and still has not received a blanket after asking numerous times,” he claimed.Responding to the story, AAA General Election candidate for Limerick City, Cllr Cian Prendiville, called on immediate action to “resolve the crisis in our health service”.“Underfunded, over-crowded, understaffed – this is the reality of the health service in Limerick. The austerity parties are running our health system into the ground. We now hear almost daily of the horror stories pouring out of our hospitals,” Cllr Prendiville declared.“The shocking inability to meet Ronan Dunne’s father’s request for a blanket is becoming an all too common story as the University Hospital Limerick simply does not have the resources to deal with the number of patients coming in.“I’ve also been told of cases where nurses had to give a patient their coat instead of a blanket. Is this what recovery looks like for public patients? If this is stability, I’d hate to see what the Labour Party and Fine Gael would call chaos!”Cllr Prendiville is now calling for extra funding to be immediately released to University Hospital Limerick to allow it to cope with demand.“What happened to Ronan’s father must not happen again,” he said.In response, a spokeswoman for UL Hospital Group said it could not comment on individual cases for reasons of patient confidentiality.“All hospital beds on all wards in University Hospital Limerick (UHL) are made up with sheets and blankets to required standards for the comfort of our patients. Any requests for additional blankets by patients are met,” she said.

Troy celebrates influence of music on community

first_img Mayor Jimmy Lunsford has joined communities all across the nation in celebrating music by proclaiming the week of May 6-13 National Music Week in Troy.“Music is the common denominator for people of all nations,” Lunsford said. “Music is one of the greatest forces in creating peace and harmony throughout the world.”The Alabama Federation of Music Clubs and the National Federation of Music Clubs of which the Troy Music Club is a member are dedicated to encouraging young musicians, increasing musical knowledge and to advancing American music. Sponsored Content Published 10:50 pm Monday, May 7, 2012 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories Skip Email the author Troy celebrates influence of music on community Print Article In 1976, Spann and Joyce Conrad produced a music program for the nation’s Bicentennial celebration, and from that came the tradition of the fifth-grade musicals.“The musical involved all the fifth grades and was usually one of the Walt Disney stories, such as ‘Sleeping Beauty’ or ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ ” Spann said. “The play was complete with tryouts, costumes (that were most often made by parents), acting, singing, background music and lights. Recordings of the musical were frequently played at high school graduation parties.”Dr. Phil Kelley, who directed many musicals at Troy University, said that incoming students often cited the fifth-grade performances as part of their acting experience.Another Troy Schools’ tradition was “The Nutcracker Suite.”At Christmas, Spann would tell the story behind each part of the composition with the music playing in the background. Once he started it, he was never able to relinquish it. Each year, ‘The Nutcracker Suite’ was repeated by popular demand.Special recognition came to the area in the early 1970s when Troy was selected as one of five locations in the United States for IMPACT, a project designed to integrate the arts into the academic courses, especially history and English.Spann was responsible for the musical arts, Betty Wagoner for the visual arts and Bob Goss for dance. Goss was the coordinator of the project, which lasted for two years and three summers.“The IMPACT project resulted in the formation of the Troy Arts Council because those involved worked closely with the Alabama State Council on the Arts,” Wagoner said.
