The perceived quality of life in buildings should come from the geometry and how that geometry connects to human beings”. It was the initial thought we had when being offered to design a row house in Phu My Hung, a new urban development area in the Southern Saigon. This project could be considered as another attempt to find a contemporary living manner in row house typology. The brief was to get rid of the way of living we used to have in common town house, where the staircase in the center along with the corridor to access spaces covered by four walls which isolate people inside his own world. The client is a nuclear family, consisted of the parents and two kids with the explicit wish to have a home fulfilled with natural elements while being able to improve the spiritual connection between each family member.Save this picture!SectionTherefore, in a general view, the house looks like a composition of cubes as the private rooms while the spaces created under the shifting volumes will become the public areas for the family. The bold section plan which collateralized circulation, privacy, and activities-control, could be used to decide the function in each voids and volumes. Continuously, a circulation as a silk ribbon is consequently created to connect all spaces together and tighten the relationship of spaces. From the main entrance, a narrow covered passageway introduces people to a 5-meter-height living space with the rotating door system at the end of the house. This system would be opened to the backyard garden and instantly fulfilled by wind provided through the tunnel. The living space and the dining area both expands vertically, through a double height, which helps to harmonize the public spaces inside the house with the outdoor impression. Along the straight flight steel staircase, some floating private volumes such as library, space for the guest, and children space could gradually be seen. The master bedroom with the private common space in the fourth floor, are connected by a stone pavement that overcomes the garden which has been landscaped with indigenous plant and the top light above. The other utilities are arranged to be in the top floor. The rooftop garden provides outdoor space for the family to enjoy the night life in this new urban area. From the beginning till the end, the staircase – as the spine of the house lets us involve in a non-stop adventure to discover different places throughout the house.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe architecture takes advantage of two fronts, east and south. On one side which is also the main elevation, is to the sun, the other has a magnificent view to the public park of the ward. Into a consistent dialogue with the next-door landscape, large openings in the southern side are proposed to enjoy the spectacular scenery of enormous plantings from the parks, and witness the seasonally qualitative change throughout the years. The main elevation, also indicates clearly the concept of geometry, while the volumes are mostly covered by wooden louver to absorb an amount of the sun heat before coming inside the house, the rotating door system covering the second floor void, becomes the gate between the outside and inside of the house. When all the doors are opened, the nature could be invited to flow inside and later on, the outdoor feeling would be provided for the whole building. By that meaning, the natural elements are always welcomed to be one part of the house as the client’s request.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiWe also have the practice that speculated on the idea to imitate the leaf-pattern and operate it as a decorative but still functional element. The outdoor wooden panels, which are externally arranged in checkerboard pattern to express the main concept of stacking and shifting volumes, become fruitful with the leaf-pattern carved in and through, one by one. On the other hand, the internal louvers can be rotated so as to adjust upon the sunlight. The exposed concrete floor become more interesting with the “carpet” made with the leaf-pattern terrazzo. Moreover, the furniture itself is another way to increase the variety of pattern in interior design. The brutal feeling, with this meticulous detail could somehow strongly strike the eye in aesthetic sense. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThis architecture offers an interpretation of a fresh new lifestyle for young families in the modern tropical city.

Sadly this isn’t the case for some children who have to endure hunger, loneliness, violence and exploitation during the holidays as they fend for themselves on the streets. The Summer Give provides opportunities for thousands of children to return to school with happy memories instead of relief that the summer is over.”Is there a Winter Give?Yes, it is called the Big Give Christmas Challenge, and has run since 2008, since when it has raised over £90 million for thousands of charity projects. It doesn’t have the same focus on London and children’s charities.How does the Summer Give work?Each charity has its own matching pot consisting of contributions from a charity’s own major supporters (Pledge funds) and The Childhood Trust (Champion funds).Together, these match funds are used to double donations made to the charity via thebiggive.org.uk during the week of the campaign.A charity’s Pledge funds will be used to double donations initially and when these have been exhausted, donations will be doubled by the Champion funds from The Childhood Trust.Who should apply?The Big Give and The Childhood Trust aims to support Summer holiday projects for children who live in poverty in London.It is therefore inviting charities which provide such services to apply to benefit from this year’s campaign. This year The Childhood Trust has “more match funds available than ever” so all charities supporting disadvantaged children in London this summer are encouraged to apply.Charities will need to have an annual income of over £25,000 and at least one set of filed accounts.Find out more about The Summer Give from The Big Give.

‘Time’s Up Wendy’s March’

first_imgNew York — Farmworkers and their allies completed a five-day “Freedom Fast” organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, on March 15 at the United Nations’ Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. This followed a march of hundreds of protesters in a five-block-long “Time’s Up Wendy’s March.” The demonstration began at the U.N. building and passed by the New York offices of Wendy’s board chairperson and largest shareholder Nelson Peltz.Demonstrators chanted “Boycott Wendy’s!” and “Down, down exploitation! Up, up fair food nation!” Supporters came from as far away as Tennessee, Texas and California to show solidarity with the farmworkers.For five days, the hunger strikers and their supporters camped and rallied outside billionaire Peltz’s Park Avenue hedge fund offices of Trian Partners. A prominent colorful banner read, “We fast because Nelson Peltz won’t use his power to end sexual violence against farmworker women.” Some 103,000 petition signatures were gathered supporting the fast and Wendy’s boycott. Although Peltz’s office accepted only a fraction of the petitions, fasters celebrated, saying this showed the farmworkers’ strength and the company’s weakness.Those fasting and their allies demanded that Wendy’s join the Fair Food Program, set up by the CIW in 2011 in Florida. This established groundbreaking worker protections, including more humane working conditions and fairer wages. Significantly, it includes a no-tolerance policy on sexual harassment and abuse faced by tens of thousands of women immigrants in the tomato fields.Unlike McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast food giants, Wendy’s owners and top officials refuse to join the program. Protesters denounced ongoing wage theft, child labor and other human rights abuses and sexual violence faced by workers in Mexico’s produce industry. Wendy’s currently buys its tomatoes there to avoid having to join the Fair Food Program, recognize workers’ rights and stop abuse of women in the fields.The Coalition of Immokalee Workers website provides background on this important struggle and its Fair Food Program, as well as daily coverage of the Freedom Fast.Kathy Durkin contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

House Expects Farm Bill Vote on Friday

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News House Expects Farm Bill Vote on Friday Facebook Twitter Previous articleNAFTA 2.0 Likely Not Done This YearNext articlePurdue Dean Plaut Excited to Work on Initiatives Like Digital Agriculture Hoosier Ag Today SHARE The House of Representatives continues its debate on the 2018 Farm Bill through Thursday evening, with the final vote on passage coming up on Friday. The Hagstrom Report says House Republican leadership and House Ag Chair Michael Conaway are still trying to round up enough Republican votes to guarantee passage. No Democrats will vote for the bill because of changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Several moderate Republicans oppose the bill for the same reason. Hardline conservative House members says the SNAP changes aren’t strict enough and the bill is too generous to farmers, especially the larger farmers.House members first began to debate the bill on Wednesday and approved several non-controversial amendments by voice vote. The Hagstrom Report says the most controversial amendment that’ll be discussed makes changes to the national sugar program. The House Rules Committee didn’t agree to allow consideration of some of the more controversial amendments, including forbidding SNAP usage to buy sweetened beverages, as well as removing the classification of hemp as marijuana. One amendment was approved for debate that would affect crop insurance by phasing out all subsidies over time. The Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau sent a letter on Wednesday asking Congress to do no harm to crop insurance.
