Stripe House / GAAGA

first_img Stripe House / GAAGA Photographs:  Marcel van der Burg Text description provided by the architects. Stripe House is a small, mixed-use house located in the city of Leiden, The Netherlands. It takes its name from the characterizing horizontal stripes carved deep into the façade and that wrap around all three exposed elevations.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe house resides in a new urban planning area where clients can develop their own houses. It is on a corner plot adjacent to the park nearby and south-east of pedestrian streets. Despite its limited size, the plot is not entirely built on. One quarter of the plot is reserved for a small enclosed garden, creating a soft transition from public to private space as well as a distance to neighbouring houses. Opting for a garden implied also a concentration of program on one side of the plot.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe cube-like structure encloses a stacking of three floors, all similar in size but different in program. Going upwards the functions have an increasingly private nature. The ground floor houses the office space and the patio, the next level contains the kitchen, living and dining space, while the upper floor holds two bedrooms and a bathroom.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe large void along the north façade is the focal point in the house. It connects the two upper floors and it spatially zones the kitchen area. The enormous window at the top offers an abundance of natural light as well as an impressive and poetic sight on the Dutch sky.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgBecause the house is situated on a corner it has an almost all-round orientation and presence.  There are not many window openings, but the ones that are present are large and oriented towards interesting views. On the first floor the three windows together form a triptych. They show three different scenes each representing a specific side of the house: the park on the east side, the neighboring houses on the west and the sky on the north.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe huge exterior walls are made tangible and appealing by means of horizontal grooves in the plaster. The grooves, with a total length of approximately 7000 meters, are handmade and carved into a semi-hardened plaster by using several moulds. The result is an unparalleled piece of craftsmanship.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgFrom architectural point the horizontal grooves enhance the ‘all-sidedness’ of the volume, link the several facades and to enhance the perspectival effect of the cube-like shape of the project.Save this picture!PlantasAnother reason for making these grooves was to make the façade more tactile and refined. Initially we planned to construct the façade with the same distance between all the grooves. However later on in the design process we changed this into varying distances in order to make the façade more tactile and refined. A funny thing now – and what we did not expect – is that a lot of people are actually touching the façade with their hands.Save this picture!CorteThe Stripe house is also a very sustainable house that scores well in several energy performance and environmental index calculations and labels.  Project gallerySee allShow lessSt. Josef Parish Centre / Frei + Saarinen ArchitektenArticlesHeathfield Primary School / Holmes Miller ArchitectSelected Projects Share “COPY” The Netherlands Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/275012/stripe-house-gaaga Clipboard ArchDaily Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/275012/stripe-house-gaaga Clipboard Save this picture!© Marcel van der Burg+ 27 Sharecenter_img Houses “COPY” CopyHouses•Leiden, The Netherlands Photographs Stripe House / GAAGASave this projectSaveStripe House / GAAGA Architects: GAAGA Year Completion year of this architecture project 2012 CopyAbout this officeGAAGAOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesLeidenThe NetherlandsPublished on September 25, 2012Cite: “Stripe House / GAAGA” 25 Sep 2012.

The tower’s undulating form was inspired by the island’s artistic tradition of abstracting waves. Through a sequence of shifted, interlocking, and softly curved floor plates and its high-performance glass curtain wall, the façade appears to be ever-changing in the light, like a wave shimmering in the sun, making the tower a distinctive and dynamic addition to the coast line.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxThe orientation of the tower’s long axis is placed ‘Mauka-Makai’, or mountain to ocean, which preserves coastal views from inland vantage points. The tower is brought cleanly down to the street to mark the residential entrance.  The podium retail and townhomes activate Kamakee Street. Retail spaces, geared toward local artisans, are arranged along a shaded pedestrian promenade that connects Auahi and Queen Streets and feature operable facades to connect directly and stimulate street life.Save this picture!SectionBetween the tower and podium geometries, a tranquil water feature is framed by one the country’s largest verdant ‘living walls’, which contains a blend of 8,000 indigenous tropical plants and passes through the lobby façade, connecting outside and in. Perched 80 feet above Auahi Street, a glass-bottomed, saltwater pool cantilevers 15 feet off the edge of the seventh floor amenity deck creating a memorable spectacle.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxThe design for Anaha employs numerous sustainable strategies and materials to create a building that is both environmentally responsive and focused on resident comfort. Since conventional faceted glazing could not convey the design intent and sinuous contours of the facade, the design team turned to large-format, solar-efficient radiused glass to meet both the technical performance and desired aesthetic. Juliet balconies allow the façade to open up, taking advantage of warm ocean breezes and allowing for an indoor/outdoor living experience for residents. Locally sourced materials also contain recycled content to the greatest degree possible and were selected to reduce or eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Kitchen appliances and plumbing fixtures and fittings are energy- and water-conserving models.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxProject gallerySee allShow lessCoronet / Jos Tan ArchitectsSelected ProjectsForensic Architecture Shortlisted for the 2018 Turner PrizeArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Honolulu, Hawaii, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Workers march to end climate crisis

first_imgThat climate crisis is a workers’ issue was emphatically affirmed by the IndustriALL Global Union when it called on all affiliates to take part in the September worldwide Climate Strike actions. IndustriALL represents 50 million workers in 140 countries in the mining, energy and manufacturing sectors, giving it the power to challenge multinational companies on a global level.Environmental activist Darryl E. Jordan (Eastern Michigan Environmental Action Council) on the left and FCA UAW worker, Erin Kennedy, on the right. demonstrating demonstrating outside GM world headquarters September 27.Founded in 2012, the organization brought together former worldwide union federations and affiliates of the International Metalworkers’ Federation; the International Federation of Chemical, Energy, Mine and General Workers’ Unions; and the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers’ Federation.In issuing a global call on Sept. 19, IndustriALL’s general secretary, Valter Sanches, stated: “The climate crisis is real, it is urgent, and it is a threat to working people and communities. The crisis has social and economic dimensions, not just environmental ones. The bridge to a sustainable future and a stable climate is a Just Transition that protects workers, their families, and the communities that depend on them.” (tinyurl.com/y3vcbt3c)Beyond participation in Climate Strike week, IndustriALL recommended actions affiliates can take, like putting pressure on companies responsible for global warming to pay for remediation and a sustainable transition for workers and communities.Other unions, trades councils and federations from around the world declared their support for the climate actions, including those in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand and the U.S. The South African Federation of Trade Unions and the Federation of Unions of South Africa, together representing 1.3 million workers, signed on.Eight U.S.-based unions endorsed local participation in the Climate Strike, including the Service Employees union (SEIU), representing nearly 1.9 million members; the Massachusetts Teachers Association; and United Electrical Workers (UE). The UE members joined Warehouse Workers For Justice in Chicago at a Sept. 20 rally to support Amazon tech workers who walked out to protest the company’s giant carbon footprint.Labor participated in force in New York City’s Sept. 20 march of a quarter of a million people, including 1199 SEIU, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, the Communication Workers, the New York State Nurses Association and the Professional Staff Congress of the City University of New York.Amazon workers, SeattleOn Sept. 27, rank-and-file autoworkers joined with Detroit environmental activists to rally outside General Motors’ world headquarters and express solidarity with the worldwide climate strike and with GM workers striking in the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The flour usually used is masa harina, which is made from corn and has a distinctive flavor due to the method used to make it. The corn is dried, then cooked in water with slaked lime, then dried again and ground up into very fine powder, which mixes easily with water. Now Frida Tacos included gorditas in their menu and they are just delicious – get down and give them a try! Business News Top of the News Community News There are various recipes for making the gordita, but they all include masa harina and water. Some people add baking powder; others put garlic powder or cheese in for taste. The gordita is first browned on a hot griddle and then deep-fried, giving it a soft center and crispy outside. They are relatively thick, almost like a fat corn tortilla, which allows for them to be split like a pita bread and filled. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Herbeauty12 Signs You Want To Stay With Your Girlfriend ForeverHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Countries Where Men Have Difficulties Finding A WifeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHere Is What Scientists Say Will Happen When You Eat AvocadosHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeauty Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena Eats, The Dining Blog What is Gordita?

Coronavirus updates: US reports over 21,000 new cases amid mass protests

narvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 375,000 people worldwide.Over 6.2 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 1.8 million diagnosed cases and at least 105,147 deaths. Here’s how the news is developing Tuesday. All times Eastern:6:49 a.m.: France lifts more coronavirus restrictionsFrance began its second phase of easing coronavirus restrictions on Tuesday after two months of lockdown, symbolizing the return to what the prime minister called “an almost normal life.”Cafes and restaurants are allowed to reopen in the country’s so-called green zones, areas where the novel coronavirus is deemed least actively circulating. Parks, gardens and restaurants terraces only can reopen in Paris, now an orange zone, as inside dining rooms must remain closed. France no longer has any red zones, which denoted areas where the virus was actively circulating.Some Parisians were seen rushing to restaurant terraces as soon as midnight struck.Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has released a list of streets that can be closed to traffic to allow bars, cafes and restaurants to expand their seating outdoors.“In this crisis, Paris needs to support its restaurants and bars,” Hidalgo told French daily newspaper Le Parisien on Sunday. “They are the heart of our city.”Most schools have now reopened across the country. Movement restrictions have been lifted, with residents permitted to travel 60 miles beyond their homes again. Museums and monuments have also started to reopen from Tuesday.France began the initial easing of lockdown measures on May 11. The European nation has reported more than 189,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19 with at least 28,836 deaths, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.6:07 a.m.: Russia reports under 9,000 new casesRussia’s coronavirus headquarters said Tuesday it had registered 8,863 new cases of COVID-19 and 182 deaths in the last 24 hours.The country’s tally now stands at 423,741 diagnosed cases with 5,037 deaths. Moscow, the capital, is the hardest-hit city in the country, accounting for about half of all infections.The latest daily caseload is down from a peak of 11,656 new infections reported on May 11, during which Russia registered over 10,000 new cases per day over a 12-day period. Since then, the daily number of new infections has hovered around 9,000.Russia has the third-highest number of cases in the world, behind Brazil and the United States, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.5:30 a.m.: Africa’s coronavirus cases surpass 150,000More than 150,000 people have now been diagnosed with COVID-19 in Africa and over 4,300 of them have died, according to a count kept by the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.All 54 African nations have reported COVID-19 cases and around half have detected community transmission of the virus, concentrated mainly in major cities. South Africa has, by far, the highest number of diagnosed cases — more than 34,000 — while Egypt has the largest death toll — over 1,000, according to the Africa CDC.However, the World Health Organization says Africa remains the least-affected region globally in terms of the number of reported cases and fatalities. The continent of 1.3 billion people has just 1.5% of the world’s reported cases and less than 0.1% of the world’s deaths.“Of course, these numbers don’t paint the full picture,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press briefing in Geneva last week. “Testing capacity in Africa is still being ramped up and there is a likelihood that some cases may be missed.”“But even so, Africa appears to have so far been spared the scale of outbreaks we have seen in other regions,” he added. “Africa’s knowledge and experience of suppressing infectious diseases has been critical to rapidly scaling up an agile response to COVID-19.”3:45 a.m.: US reports over 21,000 new cases amid mass protestsMore than 21,000 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 across the United States on Monday, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The new cases were identified in all 50 states as well as Washington, D.C. and U.S. territories.By May 20, all states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.The slight uptick in infections come as mass protests take place from coast to coast in the wake of the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis shortly after a white police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes as three other officers stood by.The Minneapolis Police Department has since fired all four officers, and the one seen pinning Floyd down, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. However, protesters are calling for the three other officers to be charged and are decrying the overall treatment of black Americans by police.From May 25 through May 27, the United States reported a daily average of around 18,600 new cases of COVID-19. That number has increased to a daily average of around 22,500 new cases from May 28 through June 1, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.The number of people who have taken to the streets in the days since Floyd’s death has been in the thousands, although many have been seen wearing face masks.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Senior living operator promises vaccine with a lease

(Getty, Atria) As the pandemic drives down occupancy at senior living properties, a Long Island assisted living community is promising vaccines to residents who sign a lease by Jan. 26.Atria Senior Living included the promise in marketing materials for its Atria Bay Shore property and also listed 60 vaccine clinics scheduled at its U.S. properties through February, according to Bloomberg.Atria has also discounted move-in fees and offered free months of rent at many of its 150 U.S. properties to entice potential residents, some of whom may be hesitant to move in, given the risks of Covid-19 to the elderly.Occupancy at senior living properties dropped to a record low of 80.7 percent in the fourth quarter, partly because of new inventory coming to the market, according to Senior Housing News.A growing share of operators are dealing with low occupancy. Around 40 percent of operators have occupancy rates below the market average of 80 percent, up from 29 percent in the second quarter of 2020.Still, the U.S. population is growing older and long-term demand for senior living properties is expected to remain strong. While the near-term picture is less than rosy, investors have remained active in the sector.Investment sales and developments continue despite the pandemic, including many in Florida.[Bloomberg] [Senior Housing News] — Dennis Lynch center_img Share via Shortlinklast_img read more
