The architecture facing and adjusting the natureThe site is located at the base of Bandai-san(mountain), we designed a second house for the family who living in the city. This region is designated as special heavy snowfalls area, we used more than 2m-high snow load to design a stilt structural system to protect the house from snow. The house has two blocks; a living function and a life related watery function are separately accommodated in each block. These are connected by a bridge that makes people enjoy harshness and happiness in natural environment with their five senses.Save this picture!Courtesy of Life Style Koubou “One year project” as the name indicates “move with times” which means that it took entire one year to experience the whole process such as tree cutting, sawing, fabrication, and assembling together with nature. At its heart, a house building is expected to be succeeding each process through dialogue with nature. In general, the process of cutting tree is done in the depth of winter to draw the maximum material performance. And then lumbers are seasoned for half a year or three years at most. Average construction period is about four months for general housing project nowadays, compare to the recent work situation, the one year preparation period could be quite a long time. However, the length of time we spent in this project make many stories created by people involved in each process of cutting, sawing, processing, delivery, and assembling and planting trees at the site.Save this picture!Courtesy of Life Style KoubouOne hundred twenty trees with 80 to 90-year-old and approx. 40cm diameter, without any special treatment, keep the wooden original features, adjust lumber to original log size not to a standard, these diligent works make every expression of trees become alive.Save this picture!© Ryoo, In KeunIt usually functioning in accordance with defined regulations in modern society, we ponder that construction of the “One year project” should yield to nature. It would probably never have the chance to use up a tree until nothing left, however it makes possible by adapting the flexible method of yielding nature. Save this picture!Courtesy of Life Style KoubouSave this picture!Frame DrawingWe believe whenever we use natural wealth trees, we have to circulate the forest and give them better environment more than before. This is an idea of “borrow” not “receive” the resources from natural environment. After the project completion, we have to return-as-we-used to plant the same kind of trees to prepare the necessary amount of natural material for next generations.Save this picture!Courtesy of Life Style KoubouA life in a tree slowly growing from a nursery is not captivated by the times, and it moves with the people and vice versa.Save this picture!© Ryoo, In KeunProject gallerySee allShow less1305 STUDIO in Shanghai / 1305 STUDIOSelected ProjectsPangyo J Residence / Kim Seunghoy (Seoul National University) + KYWC ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

An old red Massey Ferguson like Grandpa Joan’s still works the land. In this fast-paced world, there are still ancient landscapes where the fumes of the neighbouring houses are important and accompany you in winter; corners of happiness where orchards outside the walls and on the banks of the river are nicely kept. This is the story of a family refuge where one can enjoy nature and simple things; of a time machine that wants to keep this precious landscape forever unchanged.Save this picture!AxonometricaIn this project, a meadow was constructed as an adaptation to the topography of the terrain. Elements, such as the garage, the water basin, the walkway or the sloping wall in the background that follows and cuts the steep slope, form a flat surface. And on its top, there rests an autonomous rectangular volume that houses the minimum functions of a dwelling in a single open-plan space; to the south, there is a living, dining and resting room; and within the thick wall that isolates us from the north, there are toilets and the entrance.Save this picture!© Marc TorraSave this picture!Planta Primer PisoSave this picture!© Marc TorraThis architectural object transforms its relationship with the environment as the seasons change in the riverbank vegetation filter that accompanies it, but also from the varying expression of its gaze, which enjoys the landscape protected from the sun when it raises its eyelids. And, fearful of the brevity of this sober beauty, the refuge rests unstable on a hillside ledge like an owl ready to take flight with the landscape caught on its retina.Save this picture!Elevación 2Project gallerySee allShow lessLisbon City Guide: 24 Places to See in Portugal’s CapitalArchitecture City GuideHoliday Cabin / Lendager GroupSelected Projects Share 2017 Architects: Arnau estudi d’arquitectura Year Completion year of this architecture project Spain ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895172/retina-house-arnau-estudi-darquitectura Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Santa Pau, Spain Year:  CopyAbout this officeArnau estudi d’arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta PauSpainPublished on November 19, 2019Cite: “Retina House / Arnau estudi d’arquitectura” [Casa Retina / Arnau estudi d’arquitectura] 19 Nov 2019.

Lucy Gower’s book offers 10 steps to build creativity and innovation skills

first_imgThe book features case studies from both the charity and corporate sectors that address these common challenges including:• How a charity focused on the important problem of getting medicines to rural parts of Africa to save the lives of children that die from diarrhoea and other preventable conditions by successfully taking inspiration from another sector.• How one charity learned from its failure and now puts its beneficiaries at the centre of its work which has led to a complete change in approach to fundraising and service delivery.• How one charity changed its tick box approach to recruitment based just on experience to employ creative thinkers with attitude and ambition with great success.Gower commented on why she chose to write the book. She said:“Innovation is a business survival strategy. If charities continue to put their heads in the sand and hope that everything will be OK they are sadly mistaken. Now more than ever before, charities must focus on how they raise more money in order to provide better, more impactful services for those that need them.”The 256-page book is available in paperback and Kindle versions.The Innovation Workout is available on Amazon and selected WH Smiths in the UK. 2. Managing riskCharities are risk adverse, they fear failure and criticism for a failed idea to have wasted donors money. An innovation approach involves testing on a small scale, evaluating and adapting – which minimises risk.3. Creating a culture of innovationYou can have the best process or framework for innovation but if your people are not focused, motivated and given permission to innovate nothing happens.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: innovation Charity sector innovation specialist Lucy Gower has written ‘The Innovation Workout: The 10 Tried-and-Tested Steps That Will Build Your Creativity and Innovation Skills. Although applicable to many types of business, the new book, published by Pearson Education Limited, is designed to help charities develop alternative and innovative ways to raise money.The book starts with a quick diagnostic test that can completed as an individual, a team or for a whole organisation. It should help the reader to identify their strong and weak points for innovation. For example, they might struggle to generate ideas, or perhaps have too many ideas and find it hard to prioritise. Alternatively, taking action to make the ideas happen could be the biggest challenge.The book’s short chapters, practical examples and tests then guide the reader through making those improvements. With a background in both design and fundraising, Lucy Gower led the first innovation team at the NSPCC in 2007. It was here that she realised that you can have the best ideas, processes and technology, but if you don’t have the right mix of people lined up and committed to ideas and the impact they can have then even the best ideas will fail.Since leaving the NSPCC in 2012 she has worked with over 50 organisations including Amnesty, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Nesta, The Children’s Society and Greenpeace.Three common innovation challenges for charitiesGower is well aware of the challenges that charity staff face in embracing and implementing innovation. In particular, charities now are under huge pressure: demand for services is increasing, for some by as much as 70% and isn’t expected to ease off any time soon. Meanwhile raising the funds to provide services is becoming more difficult. The revised regulations set out in September in the Etherington Review will probably mean that the public can soon opt out of all fundraising communications from any charity.This will significantly reduce the number of people that charities can ask for support: the potential impact is the loss hundreds of millions of pounds in income a year, perhaps more. Charities can not ignore this.In her view, the three most common innovation challenges for charities are:1. Ability to focusMany organisations try to do everything and end up doing nothing. Learning tactics to focus on the important problems and stop the ‘nice’ but not important activity will help you to more quickly take action. Advertisementlast_img read more

Before the president’s April 27 rally in Wisconsin, images of President Trump body-slamming a CNN logo flashed across the Jumbotron. During the event, President Trump gestured toward the media calling reporters, “sick people,” and “fakers,” prompting chants of “CNN sucks!” and “Fake News!” from the crowd. Throughout the past week, President Trump also tweeted his oft-repeated insults toward the press, referring to the New York Times as “truly the Enemy of the People” on April 23. This was the third year President Trump skipped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, breaking a tradition started by President Calvin Coolidge in 1924. WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists April 29, 2019 US – #WeeklyAddress: April 22 – 28: On weekend of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Trump continues to harangue press News The United States ranks 48th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. The Trump administration once again broke its own record for the longest span of time without a formal press briefing. Aside from an off-the-record briefing held for the children of the press pool on April 23, the White House has gone 49 days without an official briefing. This new stretch breaks the White House’s previous record of 42 days set back in March, which broke a 41-day record in January. The break from briefings comes at a turbulent time for the Trump administration, as the special counsel concluded and published its findings from the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. It is particularly tumultuous for Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as the recently-released special counsel report found that the press secretary had intentionally misled the press about the reason President Donald Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey in 2017.last_img read more

“I had to apologise to my children”

It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life”.Those are the words of Limerick City woman, Deirdre, who left and abusive marriage after 25 years of being at the mercy of her husband’s absolute control and violent mood swings.“I never thought I was in an abusive relationship because he never laid a finger on me, Yet now I know that’s exactly what it was.I lived in fear of how he would be when he came through the door for all those years”.Deirdre was sharing her experience of escaping abuse during the international 16 days of opposition to violence against women.When Deirdre married, she had no idea what was ahead.“The first time I saw him carry on the way he did for most of our marriage was after our second child was born. He was hammering at something on the landing. It was late at night and a neighbour came in and asked me to ask him to stop the noise.“When I did, he threw the hammer at me from the top of the stairs”.“He was depressed and he would stay in bed for most of the day. But I had to listen for his every move and have a cup of tea ready, at drinkable temperature, when he finally came down the stairs. If it wasn’t how he liked it, he would throw it at me”.Deirdre says she lost her friends as she could never predict whether her husband would be gracious or insulting to them if they called. “I had no social life. He wanted to know where I was every minute of every day. If I went anywhere, he would call my mobile constantly and it had better be switched on”.A combination of depression and drink added fuel to her husband’s fire and the final straw came when their teenage son walked out of the house in the middle of the night after being roused by “roaring and shouting. He demanded we go after him and when we found my son, he hit him. That was the end for me. I realised that this wasn’t normal.”.Deirdre planned to use money she had stashed to accommodate her husband’s drinking to get away. She initially went to another part of the country and then was put in touch with Adapt services in Limerick.“I stayed with them for a few months and I can’t say enough about the support they gave me. When I wanted to talk, they were there. When I couldn’t talk about it, they were there too”.Deirdre has since moved back into the marital home that her husband left and has found a job.“I want women to know that just because they don’t have physical bruises doesn’t mean that they are not suffering abuse. But there is support and there is escape”, she said.

Police: Father charged in connection with fake kidnapping, death of infant

first_imgSan Antonio Police Department (SAN ANTONIO) — The father of an 8-month-old baby was among three people arrested on Thursday in connection to the child’s disappearance. Authorities are also now saying the child is likely dead, though they have not recovered his body.Authorities reported the child, King Jay Davila, as missing last week after his father told police he was kidnapped from his car in San Antonio. But after sharing surveillance footage of the child’s alleged kidnapping, police determined it was the child’s cousin and the “staged” kidnapping was done “to cover up foul play,” according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.McManus said Monday the kidnapping was a staged event “without a doubt.”On Thursday, the child’s father, Christopher Davila, grandmother, Beatrice Sampayo, and cousin, Angie Torres, were all charged with tampering with evidence in the case. The charge is a third-degree felony.“We have statements from multiple witnesses that lead us to believe that King Jay is deceased,” McManus said Thursday. “We charged [Davila, Sampayo and Torres] with tampering with evidence because we believe that they participated in staging the kidnapping to hide King Jay’s body so we couldn’t find it to determine what happened to him.”Torres, who was the one seen taking Christopher Davila’s car from a convenience store in the surveillance footage, is also being held on an unrelated aggravated robbery charge, San Antonio ABC affiliate KSAT-TV reported. She is being held on $50,000 bond, according to jail records.Investigators say they’ve received information from one of the relatives that Christopher Davila “severely injured” the child, but no other details have been released.While authorities have not found the infant’s body, McManus said the case was “unraveling thread by thread.”Police said the child’s mother, Jasmine Gonzales, continues to be under investigation in the case.“Every parent out there, everyone understands, ‘How can someone do that to a child?’” McManus said at Thursday’s press conference. “This kidnapping was used as a ruse to cover up what we believe early on was foul play. What other purpose would you fake a kidnapping other than to hide something?”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
