In the elaboration of this project, due to our client’s fascination by the landscape’s beauty, we tried to produce an architecture that minimized disturbances to the environment. We chose a mono-oriented plan, which was rationalized and simplified to be inscribed in the plot’s width.

The procedure was effective to preserve the sights, improve sustainability and ultimately to allow nature to return to the place that belongs to her, to strengthen the feeling of being able to inhabit the landscape.

I have come forth to this hill at sunset to see the forms of the mountains in the horizon—to behold and commune with something grander than man. Their mere distance and unprofanedness is an infinite encouragement. It is with infinite yearning and aspiration that I seek solitude, more and more resolved and strong; but with a certain weakness that i seek society ever.” – Henry David Thoreau, journal, 14 august 1854. Edifice: “a building, especially an imposing one.” Or as “a complex system of beliefs.”Save this picture!© Marco PetriniSave this picture!Plan, Section and ElevationsSave this picture!© Marco PetriniThe edifice, is a modest 500 square foot cedar cabin located in Fremont, New York. Approximately two hours northwest of New York City nestled in the woods of the western Catskills mountains. The edifice is an exercise in reduction, to live with only what is necessary and self-reliance. Inspired by the writings of the transcendentalist Emerson and Thoreau, the cabin stands as an example of introverted architecture or neo-transcendentalism. Transcendentalism as defined as, a belief in the inherent goodness of people and nature. The belief that society and its institutions have corrupted the purity of the individual and that people are at their best when truly self-sustaining and independent. In the architecture of the edifice, this is exhibited through its physical isolation, essentialist programming and self-sustaining infrastructure. The building sits quietly among the trees, in perfect balance with its environment.Save this picture!© Marco PetriniUpon approach, the building offers no clear entry, as it remains undefined until physically engaged. As in art, one must move around the work to understand it in relation to its context, revealing more of itself over time. As articulated by Richard Serra, “i think you always have to find where the boundary is in relation to the context in order to be able to articulate how you want the space to interact with the viewer.” The presents of the structure highlights the surrounding environment itself. The building acts as an inflection point within the context of space to heighten our awareness of the environment. The east facing façade, austere, with no fenestration acts as a screen for the sun and trees to project a play of light and shadow. This interaction produces a type of camouflage for the structure, blurring the delineation of its edges and mass with the passing of ephemeral light. Psychologically, the interplay of light and shadow establishes a sense of place through memory. The building can only exist in this specific environment through the interaction of the trees, sunlight and our eyes.Save this picture!© Marco PetriniAs one moves around the building, a single strip window on the south and west façade slowly reveal the spaces within, allowing the individual a brief moment to view the interior program. The north face of the building folds inwards opening itself up as the point of entry through its void but also as an internalized deck, making a subtle historical reference to the traditional farmhouse porch. Once inside, the program of the building is divided into four zones, live, cook, dine and sleep. Defined as a “lifecycle” program, it is the minimum essence of human habitation and sustainability. At the heart of the space, separating the sleeping from the living zone is the service core. Within the core are the required systems to sustain habitation. All systems pertaining to the habitation of the cabin are “introverted” or traditionally defined as, “off-grid.” These systems include solar power, water harvesting and composting toilet. Heating is provided by a wood burning stove and cooling is accomplished through cross ventilation. Lighting for the space is provided by candle.Save this picture!© Marco PetriniArchitect’s statement: The edifice is a belief, a belief in individuality and self-reliance. I wanted to find a sense of internal peace within myself through the act of architecture. What was found through the creation of the physical work within the woods was actually the spiritual and emotion construction of a place within the soul. An internalized place defined by harmony within the nature of our existence. In this sense of space creation, the work becomes timeless and without any physical boarder. The work transcends the physical realm to become part of us, holistic and eternal. This architecture is systemically connected to the environment through sustainable technology and infrastructure. Self-sustaining with zero ecological footprint. The edifice is an architecture of responsibility and respect for our environment and ourselves.Save this picture!© Marco PetriniSave this picture!Heating Water DiagramSave this picture!© Marco PetriniProject gallerySee allShow lessAICL Mumbai Workplace Interiors / SAV Architecture + DesignSelected ProjectsWS House / bercetche estudioSelected Projects Share Area:  500 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Marco Pierre White spices up Norwood’s Business Breakfast raising £80,000

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Marco Pierre White spices up Norwood’s Business Breakfast raising £80,000 Tagged with: Celebrity corporate Events Marco Pierre White gave 180 guests their fill of Michelin-starred entertainment at the Business Breakfast which raised nearly £80,000 for Norwood on Friday 13 February. The Hell’s Kitchen super chef added a dash of excitement as the guest speaker at the breakfast, which was sponsored by New World Corporate Finance and took place at the elegant Chancery Court Hotel. The money raised from one of the most prestigious networking events in the business calendar, will help Norwood to support children, adults and families coping with learning disabilities and social disadvantage.A fantastic meal for six with Marco Pierre White joining guests at the table, was auctioned at the breakfast raising even more money for Norwood, while two tickets for the Carling Cup final were also snapped up.Guests watched a film which highlighted the vital work Norwood does to make a huge difference to the lives of over 7000 children, families and adults who rely on the support of Norwood’s services each year. The flamboyant chef and restaurateur, who was grilled by interviewer and Sunday Express Editor, Martin Townsend, spoke about his tough beginnings, losing his mother as a young boy growing up on a council estate in Leeds.He said, “Watching that film about Norwood shows how important it is that there are people helping children deal with problems. Children are being given understanding and being listened to, they are having counselling and being shown some of the softness that I could have done with when I was growing up. As a child you don’t realise what happens to you and how it affects you.”Marco went on to share the ingredients of his success, including how he learnt his trade from great chefs Roux and Blanc and went on to train Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, famously reducing the F-word chef to tears in the process. Though he won three Michelin stars by the age of 33 he handed them back and opened his White Star Line of more than 30 restaurants.He explained, “I realised I had three options. I could continue to work 90 hours a week, I could continue to charge high prices but not work and live a lie, or I could abdicate from my position, and that’s what I decided to do.”Commenting on the appropriate response as a restaurateur to the nation’s decreasing appetite for eating out, White said, “It’s tough. I think the worst you can do is lower your prices. In fact, you should increase your price. It’s the only logical way forward.”He chose his friend Heston Blumenthal to take onto a desert island with him, saying, “I wouldn’t take Delia, I wouldn’t take Nigella, I’d take my old friend Heston,” he joked, “Because he’s intelligent and I’d get 18 courses for dinner every night.”Sara Parish, Norwood’s Events Manager said, “I’d like to thank Marco Pierre White and Martin Townsend for their entertaining discussion this morning and thank you to our guests for their support of this event that has helped to raise almost £80,000 for Norwood. This money is vital to continue to support children, adults and families coping with learning disabilities and social disadvantage to be as independent as possible and to achieve their full potential in life.”For further information, please contact Naomi Creeger, Public Relations Manager at Norwood, on 020 8420 6942 or email [email protected] availableEnds (649 words)Notes to EditorsFor further information, photos and interviews, please contact Michael Siva, Public Relations Officer at Norwood, on 020 8420 6900 or email [email protected] is the UK’s leading charity supporting children, families and adults, coping with disabilities and social disadvantage, in the Jewish community and beyond.Every year Norwood provides thousands of people with vital, specialised support to meet their individual needs to give them the opportunity to reach their potential and live life to the full.· We have more than 120 support services for approximately 7,000 children, families and adults in the UK.· Services include supported housing for people with a learning disability; education for children with special educational needs, and fostering and adoption services to find secure and loving homes for many children.To find out more about our services, please go towww.norwood.org.uk  35 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 21 February 2009 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Opposition newspaper editor freed after being held secretly for more than a month

first_img Organisation January 6, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Opposition newspaper editor freed after being held secretly for more than a month Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal Hussein Khogali, the publisher and editor of the independent, Arabic-language daily Alwan, was freed on 5 January after more than a month in detention. The police secretly held him in Khartoum’s Kober prison from 22 November until 18 December, allowing him no contact with either his lawyer or family. They then moved him to a military hospital because he has an abdominal hernia. While there, he was guarded by two members of the National Security Agency (NSA) and was allowed to receive visits from his wife. Very occasional visits by other family members were also allowed. He was held under article 31 of the National Security Act which empowers the security forces to hold someone for three to six months without charge.——————————-30 November, 2004Opposition newspaper editor held in secret location for past weekReporters Without Borders voiced alarm today about the detention of Hussein Khogali, the publisher and editor of the independent Arabic-language daily Alwan, who has been held by the police in an undisclosed location since 22 November without being charged. It is believed he may be in Kober prison, but neither his family nor his lawyer has been allowed to contact him. The police also confiscated the newspaper’s entire 23 November issue.”We have a right to be worried when, after several months of harassment and surveillance, a journalist is arrested and held in a secret location,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is unacceptable the way they have virtually made him disappear. The Sudanese authorities must say what he is charged with, and whatever the charges, they must guarantee his rights as a citizen.”Khogali was already imprisoned for 17 days in September, and was only released on condition he stopped writing in his own newspaper. He was told this verbally by members of the National Security Agency (NSA) who, according to a local source, suspected him of continuing to write the occasional article.The authorities have always considered Khogali to be a sympathiser of Hassan Alturabi, the leader of the Islamist opposition Popular National Congress (PNC), and his newspaper has been viewed as the PNC’s semi-official mouthpiece. But Khogali has always insisted the newspaper is independent.After his release in September, the NSA asked him to accuse Alturabi and his party of plotting a coup and sowing discord in the capital, Khartoum, but he refused. NSA agents paid several unannounced visits to the newspaper’s printing works in October and November, gathering information and taking away articles.

A tradition since 2004, the event—this year fully virtual due to COVID-19—provides an “outlet for industry leaders to collaborate and innovate,” according to organizers.  This year’s virtual conference kicked off Tuesday with a keynote address by Min Alexander, GM and COO for online residential real estate auction marketplace Auction.com.  Alexander said a few things that latter panelists echoed. While acknowledging how many changes are occurring this year as the result of a national health crisis—issues related to workflow, technology, resources, and communication, to name a few—she said the “north star” for her company remains the same: “Does this serve and strengthen our communities?”  Before diving into some housing data from her colleague, economist Daren Blomquist, and discussing the differences between the current recession and 2008, she shared with the audience the important instruction she tells her own team: “Get comfortable being uncomfortable.” This theme of agility, responding quickly to the many inevitable changes, was also mentioned throughout the day as one essential characteristic for any individual or organization hoping to thrive in the coming months and years.  “Be nimble and anticipatory of things facing you in the future,” said Patrick Coon, Senior Managing Director of Servicing for Home Point Financial, when asked during a “State of the Industry” panel about the biggest challenges facing property preservation. He cited the need to respond quickly to recent increased staffing demand, more and deeper reporting and analysis, and the in-depth preparation that needs to happen as we enter 2021—and approach the onslaught of forbearance exits it will likely bring.  This “known-unknown,” as the “State of the Industry” moderator Ed Delgado, Five Star Global’s Chairman Emeritus, phrased it, is one challenge unanimously acknowledged by the panelists. The session’s speakers included Coon; Tim Rood, Head of Industry Relations for SitusAMC; Caroline Reaves, CEO of Mortgage Contracting Services; Marcel Bryar, Managing Director of Mortgage Policy Advisors (MPA); Alan Jaffa, CEO of Safeguard; and Sara Singhas, Director of Loan Administration for the MBA.   The current high rate of forbearance plans could prove problematic when it comes to neighborhood blight, Jaffa said. He noted that properties in forbearance, though delinquent, do not undergo the regular property inspections performed on bank-owned properties.  “Code enforcement hasn’t been telling us just yet about a big spike [in blight], but we’ve been concerned about it from the beginning,” he said. “During forbearance process the servicer is not performing an inspection. Many people aren’t considering this but you’re talking about probably millions of properties that have not been making payments and have not undergone an inspection, and this is a concern, which could also affect surrounding home prices.”   Coping with disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey, in past years has helped prepare the mortgage servicing/housing industry for its efficient response to the ongoing COVID-19 disaster, Bryar said. Still, some of Congress’ foreclosure prevention measures created new uncertainties for the industry. “The CARES act was historical but the ways various groups … interpreted and regulated it was striking,” he added, and he suggested that is something to which the industry will need to constantly adjust as new or updated actions are taken.The policy conversation led to a discussion about the possible impact of the upcoming election. While the panelists each shared different predictions about what degree to which the outcomes will affect the industry, a number agreed that the first few months following the election, whatever the result, could be fraught with unrest due to the probability that one party will challenge it.  “It’s [the election] closer than what the media makes it appear,” Delgado said, in response to a question regarding the upcoming presidential election “We’ll see what happens next week. Irrespective of the outcome, I believe the results will be challenged.” Jaffa added, “Before we worry about new regulations for servicers, we will need to get through the first few months.” The conference continues Wednesday.

He lost his father at age 11 and became the “man of the house” for his mother and four sisters.“Donald Jr. grew up among people he loved and those who loved him,” Tatom said. “Through the way the people in his hometown lived their lives, he learned about hard work, about honesty, responsibility, commitment and dependability. He learned to be understanding and to care about others.“What makes a man like that? Growing up in a small town, and not just any small town. A small Southern town where people are like family.
