LIVING IN THE LANDSCAPEThis 1,500 sf house, which draws upon the American glass pavilion typology, Dog Trot, and principles of Florida Modernism, provides a tropical refuge in Downtown Miami. Elevated 5’ off the ground, the house includes 100 feet of uninterrupted glass – 50 feet spanning the length of the front and rear facades, with four sets of sliding glass doors that allow the house to be entirely open when desired. The house includes 800 sf of outdoor living space, with front and back porches and shuttered doors along the front for added privacy and protection against the elements. These details, and the position of the house, which is at the center of a 330-foot long lot, allow the house to meld seamlessly with the site’s dense and lush native landscaping.+ 35As owners, architects and general contractors, we physically built most of the house ourselves. Tectonics, materiality and the logic of construction became of primary interest. In a part of the country where concrete is the primary construction material, we opted for a more sustainable steel and glass superstructure, explored a combination of wood finishes, and made continued investigations into construction assemblies and innovations.DESIGN CONCEPTSThe design for our house relies on a back-to-the-basics approach – specifically studying old architectural models that care about good form but are also good for something. Each design decision was organized around four central questions that challenge the culture for building big: what is necessary; how can we minimize our impact on the earth; how do we respect the context of the neighborhood; and what can we really build?Save this picture!Courtesy of Brillhart ArchitectureOLD MODELS FOR FUTURE BUILDINGSDog TrotSome answers came from a place with which we are already intimately familiar – the seemingly forgotten American Vernacular, and more specifically, the Dog Trot, which for well over a century, has been a dominant image representing Florida Cracker architecture. The small, simple, and practical building is both modest and rich in cultural meaning. It attempts to maximize efficiency, space, and energy; relies on vernacular building materials; and celebrates the balmy breezes.Save this picture!© Stefani Fachini+ 35The Glass Pavilion Typology and Tropical ModernismThe glass pavilion typology and the principles of Tropical Modernism also provided direction. Thanks to a booming concrete industry in Miami’s backyard, Miami-Dade County has developed an almost relentless adherence to building in concrete, such that the idea of building in anything else would seem absurd. There is an unfounded, albeit pervasive, belief that the costs associated with building a residential project in steel and glass would be exorbitant; that there isn’t enough skilled labor on hand to build such projects, and so on. Ironically, we have old models from South Florida’s Tropical Modernists – dating back to the 1950s and ‘60s – of structures made of concrete, wood, steel, and hybrid systems. Simple, rational, efficient, cost-effective buildings that celebrate the tropics, these designs lend feasible and innovative alternatives for Miami’s future buildings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Brillhart ArchitectureSouth Florida’s postwar architects – such as Alfred Browning Parker, Rufis Nims, Robert Bradford Browne, Mark Hampton, Paul Rudolf and Ralph Twitchell, William Morgan, Donald Singer, Gene Leedy, and others – gave birth to a tropical modern school of thought and developed their own regional interpretations of the International Style by turning to local landscape, climate and materials to inform their designs. In an era of optimism and experimentation, these architects married building traditions with passive systems, new technologies, and innovative construction techniques. Emphasis on construction methodology was central to their work and became a model for sustainable design in the tropics.As part of our research, we analyzed the original construction documents from four residences built during South Florida’s Post-war period. First diagramming the design intent, we then made newly constructed axonometrics (shown above, left) that break down the material selections and systematic (architectonic) assemblies. As models, these four projects display an incredible range of materials and building systems. As a visual tool-kit, they served as a tremendous resource for us on this project.Save this picture!AxonometricCONSTRUCTION AND DETAILSSteel and Glass SuperstructureHarking back to the optimism and experimentation of South Florida’s postwar architecture, we sought an alternative to the use of concrete and concrete only, instead exploring steel and glass as the superstructure. As a result, we wasted fewer materials, simplified the assembly, and reduced the cost and time of construction, all the while allowing for increased cross ventilation and a heightened sense of living within the landscape.Save this picture!© Claudia UribeGlass and InsulationWith today’s advances in thermal qualities of glass and insulation  we were able to use the Tropical modern concepts alongside current Florida Building Code requirements. To meet and/or exceed the required R-Values, we included insulation on all six sides (icynene and rigid insulation); as well as 9/16″ thick thermal glass. We also had to design new assemblies in the process. For one, the new code just came out with requirements to insulate the floor if elevated. As this is a new requirement — we had to develop an entirely new floor detail – creating a sandwich with plywood underneath and on top of a layer of rigid insulation. Meanwhile, in order to achieve the R-Value on the roof and accommodate a slight slope, we designed a similar but inverse concept –  installing tapered rigid insulation on the roof, with a layer of plywood underneath followed by icynine below. (The R-value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction industry. It is expressed as the thickness of the material divided by the thermal conductivity. The higher thenumber, the better the building insulation’s effectiveness.  The design for the roof insulation resulted in a R-Value that exceeded what was required.)Save this picture!Courtesy of Brillhart ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessAR Issues: Architects Don’t Invent, They TransformArticlesArquitectura à Moda do Porto: Episode 5 – the Varied Textures of PortoVideos Sharelast_img read more

The building is located in Álamos neighborhood in the south-central area of Mexico City. Starting with the premise of integrating with the area and generating a micro-ecosystem, it is distributed in three volumes. The first one parallel to the street that functions as a facade and establishes the relationship between the building and the city, as well as two other perpendiculars with interior patios. Connections become an essential part of development.Save this picture!© César BéjarSave this picture!© César BéjarIt seeks to generate a relationship between the interior and exterior through a central courtyard that links these three bodies on the ground floor, emulating the old and emblematic neighborhoods of the city, while steel bridges connect the buildings on higher levels. Within the two rear volumes, there are twelve apartments. Taking into account that most of the houses are in these bodies, it seeks to give added value, starting from projecting more private units through the insertion of four interior courtyards, two per building, thus causing views towards their same areas and achieving better natural lighting for all spaces.Save this picture!© César BéjarSave this picture!© César BéjarNineteen housing units are divided into five typologies, ranging from 60 sqm to 115 sqm, responding to the demands of a changing society. The property is built with durable elements such as concrete, glass, brick, steel, and wood. It understands and respects the neighborhood in which it is located, appealing to the predominance of the solid over the empty to integrate into the site. The imperfection of natural materials is combined with the search for perfection in working with them.

EU Parliament’s anti-Russia statement backs U.S.-NATO threats

first_imgThis article, first appeared in the Italian newspaper, Il Manifesto, which regularly publishes Dinucci’s anti-militarist articles. Translation by Workers World managing editor John Catalinotto.“Russia can no longer be considered a strategic partner and the European Union must be prepared to impose further sanctions on it if it continues to violate international law.”  This is in the resolution adopted by the European Parliament on March 12. There were 402 votes in favor of it, 163 against and 89 abstentions. The resolution — which was submitted by Latvian member of the EU Parliament Sandra Kalnietel — denies the legitimacy of the presidential elections in Russia, calling them “non-democratic,””  thus presenting President Putin as a usurper. It accuses Russia of not only “violating the territorial integrity of Ukraine and Georgia,” but of “intervening in Syria and interfering in countries like Libya,” and of “interfering in order to influence elections and increase tensions” in Europe. It accuses Russia of “violation of arms control agreements,” attributing to it the responsibility of having destroyed the INF [Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces] Treaty.  And it accuses Russia of “extensive violations of human rights within Russia, including torture and extrajudicial killings,” and of “murder by its agents using chemical weapons on European soil.” At the end of these and other charges, the European Parliament declares that Nord Stream 2, the pipeline designed to double the supply of Russian gas to Germany through the Baltic Sea, “must be stopped because it increases the EU’s dependence on Russian gas supplies, threatening its internal market and its strategic interests.” The European Parliament’s resolution faithfully repeats, in its content and its words, the accusations made by the United States and NATO against Russia. And, more importantly, it faithfully repeats the call to block Nord Stream 2 [energy supply line between Russia and Western Europe]. Washington’s  strategy is aimed at reducing Russian energy supplies to the EU and replacing them with those from the United States or from U.S. companies. Within the same framework, the European Commission’s communication to the member states, including Italy, which intend to join the Chinese initiative of the New Silk Road is also included: The Commission warns them that China is a partner but also an economic competitor — and of utmost importance — “a systemic rival that promotes alternative models of governance,” or in other words, alternative models to the governance hitherto dominated by the Western powers. The Commission warns that the first step is to “safeguard critical digital infrastructures from potentially serious security threats,” stemming from 5G networks provided by Chinese companies such as Huawei, which are banned in the United States. The European Commission faithfully repeats the U.S. warning to the Allies. The Allied Supreme Commander in Europe, U.S. General Curtis Scaparrotti, warned that fifth-generation ultra-fast mobile networks will play an increasingly important role in NATO’s wartime capabilities, so “flexibility” by the Allies is not allowed. All this confirms the influence exerted by the “American party,” a powerful cross-party alliance that guides the policies of the EU along the strategic lines of the U.S./NATO alliance. By building the false image of a threatening Russia and China, EU institutions are preparing public opinion to accept that the United States is preparing to “defend” Europe.  A Pentagon spokesperson told CNN that the United States is preparing to test ground-based ballistic missiles, which are banned by the INF Treaty — which was recently shelved by Washington. These new Euro-missiles will once again make Europe the base — and at the same time — the target of a nuclear war.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

According to a statement released to the media by Caltech, this is the first time a soliton has been observed behaving in a near-parasitic manner.“This new soliton rides along with another soliton — essentially, in the other soliton’s wake. It also syphons energy off of the other soliton so that it is self-sustaining. It can eventually grow larger than its host,” said Kerry Vahala in the press release, a leading scientist at Caltech who authored the paper about this new type of solitonTo put it in less scientific terms, Vahala used an analogy to liken the newly-discovered soliton to pilot fish, a carnivorous tropical species that swims next to sharks so they can pick up scraps from the their meals. By swimming the shark’s wake, they also reduce water drag and are able to travel more freely.First discovered in 1834 by when Scottish engineer John Scott Russell noted unusual waves formed in the waters of Union Canal after a barge made a sudden stop, solitons were dubbed “waves of translation” as they retained their shape as they traveled. By the end of the century, solitons were explained mathematically, paving the way for them to be discovered as light waves as well.Some members of Vahala’s team, which published their paper in the Journal of Natural Physics, first thought the new wave discovery was due to malfunctioning laboratory equipment, but quickly found out otherwise.“We confirmed that the signal was not an artifact of the instrumentation by observing the signal on two spectrometers. We then knew it was real and had to figure out why a new soliton would spontaneously appear like this,” said Qi-Fan Yang, a member of the research team in the press statement.According to the press release, the team used a laser input to provide solitons with energy which could not be directly absorbed by the “pilot fish” soliton. As the “shark” soliton consumed the energy, they noticed the energy was being pulled away by the “pilot fish” soliton, which grew in size while the other shrank.“Once we understood the environment required to sustain the new soliton, it actually became possible to design the microcavities to guarantee their formation and even their properties like wavelength—effectively, color,” said Xu Yi, another research team member in the media statement.

Vide order dated July 1, the Court allowed the termination subject to a fresh check-up by a Medical Board. Reportedly, the abortion of the girl took place on July 11.Section 3(2)(b) of Medical Termination and Pregnancy Act, 1971 prohibits the termination of pregnancy after a period of 20 weeks.Section 5 of the Act provides for some relaxation in mandatory prohibitive period of 20 weeks in as much as it allows that the provisions of sub-section (2) of Sec. 3 as to the length of the pregnancy and the opinion of not less than two registered medical practitioners, shall not apply to the termination of a pregnancy by the registered medical practitioner in case where he is of opinion, formed in good faith, that the termination of such pregnancy is immediately necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman.The petitioner, before Justice Javed Iqbal Wani was a minor who came to be kidnapped by certain persons on 19-12-2019 and was subjected to rape. Upon lodging of a missing report by her father with the concerned police on 25-12-2019, F.I.R u/s 363/109 IPC got registered, but under the influence of the said persons, the police concerned did not add offences punishable u/s 376 IPC and POSCO Act in the matter. Upon being recovered by the concerned police, the petitioner was handed to her parents on 25-04-2020, where after a medical checkup was stated to have been conducted on 12-05-2020. During the conduct of the ultrasound test on 06-05-2020, she was found to be pregnant by 21 weeks.On June 26, the High Court directed medical examination of the petitioner by an expert team seeking medical opinion as to whether termination of pregnancy of the petitioner – victim would be medically permissible and feasible. The team, upon examination of the petitioner – victim on June 29, gave the following opinion:”……………After thorough clinical examination, USG radiological examination and lab. Investigation, the board of doctors is of the opinion that she is carrying 24 weeks & 2 days of pregnancy, termination of which is not allowed under MTP act, however, she can undergo termination of pregnancy after correction of anemia.”The Court, on June 30, directed further examination of the petitioner by a Psychologist, who opined that the victim does not have any active psychopathologies and at present her mental status examination is normal. While referring to explanation (I) appended to sub section 2 of section 3 of the Act of 1971, the counsel for the petitioner contended that the alleged pregnancy of the petitioner – victim, having been caused by the alleged rape, constitutes a grave injury to the mental health of the petitioner – victim. Accordingly, it was pleaded that the rider and restraint, as provided in sub section 2(i) of section 3 of the Act of 1971 is relaxed under the provisions of section 5 of the Act of 1971 which according to the counsel is incorporated as an enabling provision beneficial to the pregnant woman seeking termination beyond aforesaid stipulated period.”The legal position in such kind of a case fairly seems to be well settled by various decisions of the Apex Court wherein the Apex court allowed in specific cases termination of pregnancy beyond aforesaid stipulated period”, noted Justice Wani.Accordingly, the bench ordered to undertake a fresh check up/examination of the petitioner-victim by a Medical Board including a Psychiatrist, and on the basis of opinion/report of the said Board, to take a final call regarding termination of pregnancy of the petitioner-victim. “Should the respondents 4&5 on the basis of said medical opinion/report decide to undertake termination of pregnancy of the petitioner-victim, necessary measures be also taken for preserving of DNA samples of the foetus and for the said purpose, the respondents 2&3 be also associated therewith”, added the bench, in view of the trial in the rape case. The bench clarified that the petitioner-victim be provided appropriate free medical facilities in the event termination of pregnancy is undertaken.The Lok Sabha passed the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Bill, 2020 on 17th March 2020 to amend section 3 of MTP Act, 1971. In its Statement of Objects and Reasons, the Bill identifies that with the advancement of medical technology there is a scope to increase the upper gestational limit for terminating pregnancies, which up till now stood at twenty weeks, but with the passing of the Bill, would stand at twenty-four weeks.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
