The project sets within a mission of movement and punctuation. With this framework, a typological approach seeks to combine the urban scale of the street with its surrounding area. The project maintains the necessary “boundaries” between the building and the street while taking into account the area’s density. The result produces an intimate residential atmosphere while maintaining the autonomy of the individual units, which break away from the standard “concrete block” and its the negative stereotyping. Save this picture!© Nicolás BorelRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – ConcreteWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsPanels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsFretwork Facade PanelThus the project is organized into a gathering of buildings sectioned in rhythm with the urban design : – A well-handled gap separates the structures so that their individuality is maintained, yet they all have corresponding foundations so that a single and continuous reading of the urban landscape is achieved.- Transparencies and visual escapes produced by the gap between structures finds focus in the patios distributed among the large street-facing apartments. These patios initiate a smooth transition between public and private areas.- In slight contrast to the regular rhythm of the buildings, a dynamic ensemble of rooftops tipped with slightly asymmetrical angles house attics for the apartments. Save this picture!© Philippe CaumesThe project flirts with false symmetry and vibrations established by slight variations of a serial logic.Moreover, the urban dimension earns its place amongst the strong goals of the urban project in Angers:Save this picture!© Willy Berr- A united front is presented from the ground (e.g., from Banchais street). One section settles there, bordering Marguerite Legros street, which in turn crosses the existing block (image 1). Where the street makes two building façades face each other between two breaks, perspectival depth is created along with a connection forged between the two sides of Le Gouz street.- From Deux Croix boulevard, an initial plot (image 2) creates a rhythm along to which the first section of the building responds visually. The sequence ends roughly a dozen meters behind this section, Le Gouz 2. Distant dialog pulls the project towards the town so that the two feel more united. Save this picture!© Philippe Caumes- In Banchais street, the question here is of the same scale as the neighbouring buildings, as the street is mainly made of pavilions. This transition lies on a singular element, such as a section (image 3) which would shift to find once again the alignment of the street and neighbouring buildings.Save this picture!plan 01Project gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: Taiyuan Museum / Preston Scott CohenArticlesVideo: Football for HopeArticlesProject locationAddress:Angers, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, which are unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.Save this picture!© Matthew Momberger“The client wanted a luxurious house where she could throw large events and host her extended family, but she also wanted it to feel welcoming,” says SPF:a Founder and Design Principal, Zoltan E. Pali, FAIA. “To make this work, we needed the home’s spaces flow into one another with ease. Our answer was distribute the program across three ‘blades’ that radiate from a central node.”Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe outcome of the confluence—a dynamic glass and steel staircase stretching through the core of the structure—was in fact twofold: practically, it provided a very straightforward answer to the vast home’s circulation; visually, it joined what would otherwise be disparate areas in one’s line of sight. “In spite of the scale, I feel we were able to achieve a home that is both warm and functional,” says Pali.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerAs a whole, Orum rises two stories above ground with its third floor burrowed into the hill. Programmatically, the residence has been split into three levels each consisting of three wings. The ground floor provides the entry and communal spaces for gathering, while the top floor is dedicated to the home’s private spaces. The upper southwest and southeast wings of the home hold the master and mini-master suites, both of which are afforded 270-degree views of the city and ocean, thanks to their slim profiles. In contrast, the two smaller bedrooms contained within the northern wing and embraced by the site’s adjacent hillside and rear garden, giving them an intimate feel akin to a tree house.Save this picture!© Matthew Momberger”The light in Los Angeles is very dynamic and can be both calming and energizing,” says SPF:a Founder and Creative Director, Judit M. Fekete, “As the site is positioned quite high above the city with almost no impediments, we wanted the house to capture the spirit of these dualities. The huge panels of glass provide the home’s inhabitants with a strong connection to nature and the daily and seasonal arcs of light..”Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe glass curtain wall wrapping the third floor home is a highly sophisticated system custom developed in part with Schuco/Glasbox, a leading fenestration company based in Germany. The structure utilizes five different widths of four different opacities—reflective, opaque, translucent, and clear—that as an ensemble give the structure an infinite, visually shifting, shimmering façade.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe outdoor area includes a kitchen, two fire pits, and an LED-lit pool. All roof, balcony, and hardscape water is directed to a 7,000-gallon underground tank for landscape irrigation. The main garage also serves as an event space and can be completely opened on two sides for through views.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe basement level has been outfitted with a home theater, gym, spa, cedar sauna, service kitchen, and a wine room big enough to hold a thousand bottles. Also accessible from this floor is the Cube, an attached guesthouse designed for family and staff. The Cube is outfitted with four bedrooms, four baths, a kitchenette, and dedicated access and garage.A highly custom residence steeped with intricacies, Orum took four years to construct.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerProject gallerySee allShow lessSierra / BOSS.architectureSelected ProjectsCandy Loft / StudioACSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_descriptioncenter_img Area:  18800 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Orum Residence / SPF: architects Photographs:  Matthew Momberger Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Lutron, Sky-Frame, Blum, Glasbox, Lochinvar, Miele, Subzero/Wolf, U-line, Creston Home Automators System, Holovision, Samfil PVC, Speed Queen, VALVO ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/910911/orum-residence-studio-pali-fekete-architects Clipboard Year:  United States Houses “COPY” Architects: SPF: architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSPF: architectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesLos ÁngelesUnited StatesPublished on February 07, 2019Cite: “Orum Residence / SPF: architects” 07 Feb 2019.

Massive turnout honors life and legacy of Chuck Turner

first_imgWW photo: Stevan KirschbaumBoston, USAA capacity crowd of 600-plus people – plus an additional 250 overflow – packed Roxbury Community College Jan. 9 to celebrate the life of Charles Henry “Chuck” Turner II.  The “People’s City Councilor” passed away Dec. 25 following a long battle with cancer. He was 79. As a freedom fighter, organizer, strategist and internationalist, he struggled for justice for over 53 years.  The crowd represented the many struggles to which Chuck dedicated his life. Leaders from the Black and Brown communities, from the fight for jobs, housing, education, prison rights, equality, women’s and LGBTQ2+ rights – against racism, poverty and war – joined his spouse Terri Turner and family in a moving tribute. Team Solidarity of the United Steelworkers Local 8751, Boston School Bus Union, organized buses that brought over 60 rank-and-file members from the bus yards. The three-and-a-half-hour program was led by Darrin Howell, family spokesperson and former District 7 Constituent Service Director who, like many in attendance, had been mentored by Chuck. It was emceed by Calvin Feliciano and Angela Yarde of Chuck’s council staff. A rainbow of movement leaders bore witness to his life’s work. New generations of community leaders whom Chuck had mentored joined longtime veterans. Paige Academy Drummers opened the program, which also included song, poetry and an electrifying musical performance by Foundation Movement, Boston’s premier hip-hop band and Chuck’s beloved loyal comrades.Mel King, 91 years old, set the tone for the day, reciting a poem he had composed entitled the “Power of Love.” King had worked with Chuck on countless campaigns, including the historic I-95 Federal Highway struggle of 1969. This project threatened to decimate Boston’s Black and Brown communities. Their coalition, called Operation Stop, took on the federal government and won, providing invaluable lessons for struggles ahead to protect the integrity of the community. Charles Yancey met Chuck as a teenage college activist. He bears the honorable distinction of being the sole City Councilor to “Stand with Chuck,” when the Council took an illegal, racist vote to remove Chuck after his 2008 federal frameup. Yancey stated, “We are Chuck Turner.” Speakers tell of his early strugglesAlso on the program was Bill Strickland, Chuck’s Harvard classmate, who after meeting him at a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee convention in 1963, joined him in New York City as editor of the Northern Student Movement newspaper. The NSM was begun by Northern students providing support for the movement in the South. It later shifted to Black community organizing in New York, Hartford and Boston, a trajectory that led Chuck back to Boston in 1966.  In those three years, he joined a rent strike in Harlem and then became NSM director in Hartford, where he organized a campaign to confront police brutality. This led to confrontations between the police and the community, resulting in Chuck’s arrest and charges of sedition — charges that had not been used since the days of Sacco and Vanzetti. After Chuck was given probation, he moved to Roxbury, Mass.Other program speakers included Kazi Toure of the Jericho Movement and Suzanne Lee, a longtime Chinatown activist. President Andre François of the Boston School Bus Union, brought the crowd to its feet with a proposal that the mayor – who was in the audience – name a street in honor of Chuck. He was the strongest supporter, ally and advisor to Local 8751 since its founding in the 1970s.Chuck was born in Cincinnati in 1940. He said he was “blessed to have been born into a family that had two predominant passions – a thirst for knowledge and a desire to serve.” His mother was a school teacher, while his father later ran one of the first Black-owned pharmacies in Chicago. His brother became a college professor and dean, while his grandfather, Charles Henry Turner, for whom Chuck was named, was a renowned zoologist and entomologist. Fighting racism, poverty and warIn 1958, Chuck attended Harvard University on a full scholarship. After college, he headed for Washington, D.C. He later recalled “ironically arriving on August 23, 1963. Thus, I had the opportunity to stand with hundreds of thousands and hear Dr. King and others give the call to action.” Chuck spent the rest of his life answering the call to fight the “triple evils” of racism, poverty and war. In 1999, Chuck ran for and won a Boston City Council seat, in an “attempt to use elective office as an organizing tool.” For a decade, he did just that. He and his spouse paid for a “serve the people” organizing hub district office in Dudley (now Nubian Square), serving his constituents and anyone who walked through the door seeking help. The People’s City Councilor was loved by the people but hated by the forces of oppression and injustice. In 2008, Chuck was the victim of a federally coordinated, politically motivated, racist frameup.  At the time, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who traveled to Boston to support Chuck, wrote: “Chuck has been in the forefront of every battle for social justice, in Massachusetts and around the globe. Turner’s prosecution in 2008 was part of a politically motivated pattern of prosecutions of elected officials of color by Bush administration U.S. Attorneys. It is a political frame-up. The voters of his district showed their view of it in the 2009 election by returning him to office.” Chuck was innocent! Yet he served 2 ½ years in federal prison in West Virginia.  He handled this fight with the same principles, dignity and grace that characterized his life’s struggles. He organized within the walls and returned to Boston stronger than ever. For jobs and international solidarityChuck’s decades of effective, impassioned organizing in the struggle for jobs – from the Third World Jobs Clearing House to the Boston Jobs Coalition, against racism and discrimination in hiring in the building trades based on criminal records and against police brutality – provide a road map for future organizing.  An internationalist to the core, Chuck fought for workers and the oppressed worldwide: from Palestine to Puerto Rico, Haiti to India, Iraq to Afghanistan. He consistently supported Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier and all political prisoners.  Chuck’s May Day 2011 message from behind the walls said it all: “While the clouds of darkness are thickening over this country, we must remember that the sun never stops shining, no matter how dark it appears. We also must remember that it is the workers of the world who are the yeast in the bread of the planet. We can see the system of exploitation crumbling of the weight of its own evil. Let us prepare ourselves to remake the world in the image of Brotherly and Sisterly Love.”Chuck Turner, ¡presente!The rank-and-file activist union of the Boston school bus drivers, USW 8751, mourned the loss of Chuck Turner, described on its Team Solidarity Facebook page as “the strongest ally, support and advisor” to the union since its founding in the 1970s, who was “solidarity in action, at rallies, demonstrations, marches, hearings, direct actions and round-the-clock negotiations.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

AlexanderThe Rosetta Science Working Team has dedicated a prominent feature on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko – also known as Rosetta’s comet – to esteemed Pasadena scientist Dr. Claudia J. Alexander, who passed away in July after a long battle with cancer, leaving behind a 29-year-long career with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.The feature, found on the smaller lobe of the comet, was named the C. Alexander Gate, according to a blog post by Rosetta Project Scientist Matt Taylor on the European Space Agency blog, blogs.esa.int.Alexander was an admired scientist who helped lead both the Galileo mission and the international Rosetta comet mission.Born in Canada and raised in Northern California’s Silicon Valley, Alexander joined JPL soon after completing graduate school, having received her Bachelor’s degree in geophysics from the UC Berkeley in 1983, and a master’s in geophysics and space physics from UCLA in 1985.Alexander earned a Ph.D. in the physics of space plasma from the University of Michigan in 1993, where she was named Woman of the Year.Dr. Alexander died on July 11, 2015. At the time of her death, she was serving as project manager and lead NASA scientist in the Rosetta mission.“As a token of deep gratitude and thanks, the Rosetta SWT has also dedicated the upcoming special issue of scientific papers in Astronomy and Physics to everyone who has worked on the mission, including those who continue to work on the mission, but especially those colleagues who have passed away,” Taylor wrote.The Rosetta SWT met recently in Göttingen, Germany to discuss a number of new science investigations along with updates on the ongoing studies of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and its environment.The team also discussed its members who have been outlived by the mission, including scientists like Alexander who did not live to appreciate the main comet phase.Another prominent feature on the comet’s larger lobe was named the A. Coradini Gate, after Dr. Angioletta Coradini, the former principal investigator of the VIRTIS (Visible and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer) instrument, who passed away in September 2011.The two features, according to the ESA blog, were chosen for their prominence on Comet 67P/C-G, and “for their very distinctive and striking gate-like appearances, considered to be highly appropriate monuments for our absent colleagues.” Subscribelast_img read more

Done deal: Biden signs $1.9T stimulus with billions for real estate

first_img Full Name* CoronavirusHousing MarketJoe BidenPoliticsReal Estate and Politics Share via Shortlink Email Address* Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags President Biden signing the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill on March 11. (Getty)President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion stimulus package on Thursday, aggressively expanding federal aid to renters, homeowners, small businesses and more.“This historic legislation is about rebuilding the backbone of this country,” Biden said before signing the bill, “and giving the people of this nation, working people, the middle-class folks, people who built the country, a fighting chance.”Biden originally planned to sign the legislation, known as the American Rescue Plan, Friday.The bill, which touches on issues ranging from health care to child care, has a few impacts on real estate. Here are the five provisions most noteworthy to the industry:1. Rent and mortgage assistanceThe bill includes $21.55 billion for emergency rental assistance, $5 billion for emergency housing vouchers and $100 million for rural housing.ADVERTISEMENTIt also provides funds for marginalized communities hurt by the coronavirus pandemic, such as $5 billion to help people experiencing homelessness and $750 million for Native American communities.2. Small businesses and restaurantsThe bill provides $28.6 billion to go to eligible restaurants in grants of up to $5 million.Restaurant owners are also eligible for a $15 billion Emergency Injury Disaster Loan program, which provides long-term, low-interest loans.The package appropriates $7.25 billion to the Paycheck Protection Program, which has already disbursed more than $662 billion in forgivable loans.3. State and local reliefState and local governments are facing pandemic-induced budget shortfalls in the coming months and years, raising concerns among the real estate industry that taxes will be raised.But the Biden bill designates $350 billion to states, cities, tribal governments and U.S. territories to mitigate the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.The bill also adds a $10 billion infrastructure program to help local governments with capital projects.4. HomelessnessIn addition to the $5 billion for people experiencing homelessness, the bill provides $510 million for the FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Program, which supports homeless services providers. That money may be used for overnight shelter, meals, one month’s rent and mortgage assistance and one month’s utility payments.5. Stimulus checksThe $1,400 payments that Americans have been awaiting for months is on its way. Individuals making under $75,000 and couples filing jointly making under $150,000 would receive $1,400 per person. The bill also provides $1,400 per dependent.Smaller checks will go out to individuals making more than $75,000 and couples making more than $150,000, but the benefit phases out at $80,000 and $160,000, respectively.Meant to boost the economy, the checks make up roughly $400 billion of the package. The previous two stimulus checks have been correlated with increased retail spending, benefiting retailers and, indirectly, their landlords.Read moreWhat real estate gets in Biden’s $1.9 trillion packageNational eviction moratorium ruled unconstitutional, but remains in placeBiden to extend foreclosure moratorium, mortgage forbearance Contact Sasha Joneslast_img read more
