Hass House / Feuerstein Quagliara

Overlooking 45 acres of farmland in the Catskills, Hass House is a playful reconfiguration of the traditional American side-gabled house. The design provides a diverse set of environments with expansive views out to the pastoral landscape from every space. We began with the creation of a linear “program bar” oriented on the north-south axis in order to take advantage of the site’s primary southern view and exposure. Save this picture!© Anna RitschThe bar was then segmented into six equal blocks corresponding to each of the programmatic requirements: guest bedroom, entry, dining room, kitchen, living room, and master suite. By slightly shifting the entry and master suite blocks, a series of residual spaces developed along the length of the bar.Save this picture!© Anna RitschA continuous gable roof was then placed on top of the entire reconfigured bar, allowing the negative spaces between the blocks to be used as covered outdoor spaces. In this way, each program type is connected to an outdoor space made accessible through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, providing both visual and physical connections to the landscape from every room.  Save this picture!© Anna RitschPlanning wise, the master and guest bedrooms are separated by a combined block of free flowing living, kitchen, and dining spaces. This created a more casual and communal atmosphere for entertaining while accommodating for privacy between the two bedrooms. The entire southern wall of the living spaces is made up of a 48’ long run of sliding glass doors, which offer expansive views of the site and open to a large covered deck. In turn, the guest bedroom looks out to the landscape in the South through a more intimately sized covered deck. The master bedroom is connected to a private garden with openings to the sky above and the sunset to the west. Save this picture!Ground floor planThe form of the traditional gable roof allowed the interior spaces to be shaped to complement the nature of the programs. Smaller more compressed volumes were provided for the sleeping spaces and were given flat ceilings, while the large free flowing communal area alternates between vaulted and flat ceilings to provide subtle borders between the three programs.Save this picture!© Anna RitschThis pattern of compression and expansion adds nuance and rhythm as one moves throughout the linear floor plan. Black stained rough-cut pine siding was selected for the exterior cladding, which in conjunction with the building’s simple form creates a graphic silhouette against the landscape. Inside, concrete floors, white walls, and Baltic birch plywood millwork create a light and muted palette to contrast the dark exterior. Save this picture!© Anna RitschSave this picture!Short sectionSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Anna RitschSkylights in the communal spaces provide diffuse lighting and facilitate cross ventilation in the warmer months. The north wall of the communal spaces is composed of a long bar of storage cabinets, a concrete bench, a wood burning stove, and a small alcove for storing firewood. The kitchen is defined by two large Baltic birch and concrete islands which create a buffer between the living and dining spaces.Save this picture!© Anna RitschProject gallerySee allShow lessSOHO 3Q Chengdu Office / Superimpose ArchitectureSelected ProjectsEst-Nord-Est Artists’ Residence / Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectesSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Bona, VELUX Commercial, Bosch, Evans + Paul, FSB, Hafele, Liebherr, Morso, Nemetschek, Pella EFCO, ROCKWOOL, Toto, Vola, Acor, Arcadia Custom, Birch plywood, Concrete, McNeel, Zen Bathworks ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/929201/hass-house-feuerstein-quagliara Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/929201/hass-house-feuerstein-quagliara Clipboard Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description “COPY” 2019 Contractor: United States ArchDaily Year:  Photographs:  Anna Ritsch Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  2089 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project JIT General Contractors CopyHouses•Livingston Manor, United States Photographs CopyAbout this officeFeuerstein QuagliaraOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLivingston ManorOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on November 28, 2019Cite: “Hass House / Feuerstein Quagliara” 28 Nov 2019.

The charity had one of the biggest teams of runners in this year’s marathon: its 650 runners included ex-England manager Graham Taylor, Matrix Reloaded star Adrian Rayment, Major Charles Ingram and Sky Sports presenter Ian Payne. Fancy dress costumes ranged from a giant centipede and a bumblebee to a padded fat lady in a bikini. Two of the charity’s senior managers – director of fundraising Paul Amadi and director of children and adult services Ges Roulstone – were among those who crossed the finish line, along with fellow staff members Stephanie Kitchen and Gary Hopkins. Students on the MBA course at the Cranfield School of Management ran for the charity dressed as a giant centipede.

Palmer Amaranth Could Again Effect Soybean Yields

first_img SHARE SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleLessons from the Avian Flu Outbreak Gary Truitt Researchers at the University of Illinois say Palmer amaranth could again damage soybean yields in 2016, possibly spreading further north in the Midwest. Weed ecologist Adam Davis said there are no current climate limitations to any of the genotypes of Palmer amaranth researched, adding “this is a serious weed.” He says Palmer amaranth is an even bigger threat than most weeds for soybeans, causing soybean yield losses up to 80 percent in severe cases.Palmer amaranth already exists in states like Illinois, but it has not become a major problem. The University advised farmers should learn to identify and remove Palmer amaranth before it goes to seed, creating a much bigger problem.

Why Some People Get ‘Skin-Gasms’ While Listening To Music

first_imgYou know that feeling when you’re listening to a song and you suddenly feel a chill run up your spine or down your arms? It typically comes during a dramatic shift in music, but some people also feel it while looking at an engaging piece of artwork, watching a particularly emotional scene in a movie, or having physical contact with another person.This experience is called “frisson,” which in French means “aesthetic chills” and is also known as “skin-gasms,” or goosebumps. It’s the feeling you get when a sudden wave of pleasure runs through you as a result of these artistic experiences, though studies have shown that only about two-thirds of the population are able to experience it.While the details of this phenomenon are still under research, scientists have traced the origins of frisson to how humans emotionally react to unexpected stimuli in an environment. The reactions happen mostly in music when there are unexpected harmonies, sudden changes in volume, or in the entrance of a particularly moving solo. The change violates the listeners’ expectations, in a positive way, ultimately triggering a frisson reaction.Scientists Have Discovered The Area Of The Brain That Responds To MusicSo why do these thrills cause such chills? Some scientists suggest that goosebumps are an evolutionary holdover from our earlier ancestors, the hairier ones, who used an endothermic layer of heat retained beneath the hairs of their skin to keep warm. Goosebumps were the result of a rapid change in temperature, but haven’t phased out of our evolutionary trajectory since the invention of clothing. Perhaps it is starting to decline, though, as frisson is only prevalent to about 55-86% of the population.So who are the lucky ones? What types of people are able to experience these “skin-gasms”? Scientists at the Eastern Washington University set out to find out. After testing the cognitive immersion of several people listening to a variety of different songs, known to contain thrilling moments, and asking them to complete personality tests, their research concluded that listeners who experienced frisson also scored high for a personality trait called “Openness to Experience.”“This graph shows the reactions of one listener in the lab. The peaks of each line represent moments when the participant was particularly cognitively or emotionally aroused by the music. In this case, each of these peaks of excitement coincided with the participant reporting experiencing frisson in reaction to the music. This participant scored high on a personality trait called ‘Openness to Experience’.”Studies have shown that people who possess “Openness to Experience” have “unusually active imaginations, appreciate beauty and nature, seek out new experiences, often reflect deeply on their feelings, and love variety in life,” explains social psychologist Mitchell Colver. Some aspects of this trait are inherently emotional and others are cognitive, so the combination makes for an imaginative empathizer with great intellectual curiosity and appreciation of beauty.How Music Can Be Used To Influence Different Mood GoalsTheir research found that listeners were experiencing frisson as a result of “a deeply emotional reaction they were having to the music.” Contrastingly, the results also showed that “it’s the cognitive components of ‘Openness to Experience’ – such as making mental predictions about how the music is going to unfold or engaging in musical imagery (a way of processing music that combines listening with daydreaming) – that are associated with frisson to a greater degree than the emotional components.” This conclusion indicates that “those who intellectually immerse themselves in music (rather than just letting it flow over them) might experience frisson more often and more intensely than others.”The findings are now published in the journal Psychology of Music and contributes to the forever-building database of knowledge we have concerning music and the human connection. We are grateful for the precious moments music provides, and the scientific studies as to why we have certain reactions to such further proves why we Live For Live Music.Join fellow frisson-loving Reddit users in this page entirely dedicated to frisson-causing media, and enjoy this “Light” from Phish at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in 2012, which Robert Randolph once told us really got him “caught up in the Phish moment.”[via Science Alert]last_img read more

A higher profile for African studies

first_imgThe U.S. Department of Education has named the University Committee on African Studies as a National Resource Center, thereby raising the profile of Harvard’s Africa programs and bringing in grant money for programs, student travel, and outreach.Committee chair Caroline Elkins, professor of history, announced the designation in a recent letter to colleagues. The committee will receive nearly $2.5 million over the next four years.The National Resource Center program supports institutions that function as centers for teaching foreign languages, with an emphasis on understanding not just the languages themselves, but on providing a full understanding of the countries or regions where the languages are spoken.At Harvard, the work of about 100 faculty members across several schools and disciplines involves Africa in some way, Elkins said, from public health to Swahili. About 300 courses a year touch on subjects related to Africa, 31 African languages are taught at Harvard, and 50 African scholars work at the University each year in fellowships. In addition, Africa is not just a continent studied from afar. Students regularly travel there to conduct studies firsthand. This summer alone, about 150 students are working and researching in Africa.Elkins said the designation wouldn’t have been possible without a triple-threat core of Africa-centered activity. While the committee helps to coordinate activities, connect scholars, and foster scholarship across the University, the Department of African and African American Studies, chaired by Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, the Victor S. Thomas Professor of History and of African and African American Studies, provides an academic home for studying the continent. Similarly, Elkins said, the Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research, headed by Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher Jr. University Professor, provides a focal point for scholarly research.“It is a reflection of how well we do African Studies at Harvard,” Elkins said.As much as the University already offers in study and research on African countries, people and languages, Elkins said students are quite advanced.“The demand from the students, we just can’t keep up with it,” Elkins said. “Students are way ahead of us.”In her letter announcing the designation, Elkins thanked “Harvard’s Africanist faculty and staff” for their dedication to teaching and research. Elkins also thanked President Drew Faust, Provost Steve Hyman, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael Smith, and Dean of Social Science Stephen Kosslyn for internal support that led to the award.last_img read more

NECI to close Essex campus, consolidate operations in Montpelier

first_imgThe New England Culinary Institute s Board of Directors announced today that it has approved recommendations proposed by the school s administration to unify campuses to its Montpelier location, while at the same time expand both the scope of NECI s educational offerings and the options for delivery of those programs to students.Moving the school s residential students into a single campus location (the school currently has operations in both Montpelier and at The Essex, formerly the Inn at Essex in Essex ) will allow NECI to achieve both the financial benefits of unification as well as related educational, creative and operational synergies, school officials said.As a result of the changes approved by the Board, student housing, administrative offices and classrooms now located in Essex Junction will transition to Montpelier by September, according to the Dick Flies, Executive Vice President. However, the institute will continue to have a presence at The Essex as a preferred internship site, as well as a site for short courses and private events.According to administrators, the changes approved by the Board at its meeting this week will allow NECI to continue a direction that began last year, as the 29-year-old culinary school evolves from one primarily focused on preparing students to create and serve food at fine dining establishments, to a far more diverse culinary college offering a broad range of food-related specializations. I am very pleased that the board has approved our request to accelerate our transition to a culinary college concept, said Dick Flies, Executive Vice President of the institute. The opportunities this presents for NECI, students, faculty and staff are truly exciting and forward thinking. NECI has been one of the premier institutes in the United States focused on technical training of cooks and chefs. Our graduates work in many of the finest restaurants in the country as well as internationally. We will continue that long-standing tradition while adding an exciting and diverse variety of options through the culinary college umbrella, stated Paul Sorgule, Provost.But the primary motive for both the campus unification and the expansion of programs, according to members of the school s administration, is to make certain that NECI not only keeps pace with the rapidly evolving food industry, but continues to be a leader in that field. The overarching objective is to provide high value in the educational offerings the NECI provides its students, officials said. As one of the nation s top culinary schools, NECI takes seriously the need to be in the forefront of food education, said Fran Voigt, President and founder of the school. With all of our best resources our students, faculty and staff on one campus, our already high level of creativity, ingenuity and excellence will only improve. Through the expanding culinary college concept and our evolving  ducation offerings, NECI will be able to remain a leader in this competitive and critical industry.Among the topics that will be the focus for course, program and continuing education offerings will be sustainability, food safety, food distribution systems, food teacher training, product development, food-related media as well as on-site cooking in various commercial and non-commercial venues.The college will offer a range of associate and baccalaureate degrees, and will make those degrees available to resident students as well as to students who take courses online. We are excited about the changes NECI is undergoing and the opportunities presented to The Essex, said Jim Glanville, Vice President and General Manager of The Essex. While still being a valued partner of NECI, The Essex will be able to exercise a more flexible culinary offering to our guests resulting in even greater menu creativity and improved service. We look forward to a continued partnership with NECI and playing a role in their future growth, all while enhancing the guest experience and the culinary theme at our exceptional destination resort. The planning process surrounding the transformation of NECI to a culinary college concept represents the most exciting and dynamic move since the inception of the institute in 1980, said Paul Sorgule, Provost. Viewing educational opportunities for a broader audience of stakeholders in all aspects of the food continuum from farmer and producer to researcher, writer, distributor, preparer and server will allow NECI to stand out as a leader in food education in a state that truly defines the direction that these industries, nation-wide need to move. We are excited about the opportunities ahead, the chance to truly allow students to Discover Vermont and make an impact on the growth of Vermont as the leader in a new food movement.The transition to the Montpelier campus is expected to be completed by the start of the academic year in September.Source: NECIlast_img read more
