HGCNH House / Code Architectural Design

first_img Text description provided by the architects. Located in the town of Shikaoi-cho in Hokkaido, this house was built for a husband and wife couple and their child on the same plot of land as their parents’ house. Although the space that divides the house from the neighboring building is unusually large – almost inconceivably so for an urban downtown setting – the site does not offer a good, unobstructed view of the vast natural expanse that surrounds the property.

Save this picture!Floor PlanThis partially split-level house consists of approximately 1.5 layers (for a total height of 4100mm). The large porch space, which is continuous with the entrance hall, functions as a kind of buffer zone dividing the house from the outdoors, offering its inhabitants a gentle, gradual transition towards the interior. Save this picture!We felt that certain adjustments were necessary to prevent this sort of single-roomed space from creating a monotonous impression. Although the living, dining and kitchen area is located along the south-facing side of the house, it is also situated uncomfortably close to the street that runs just alongside the building. As such, we decide to punctuate the wall with a scattered assortment of windows in various shapes and sizes instead of creating a single, large window. These openings offer the inhabitants multiple functions and meanings – varied glimpses of the sky through each window, a momentary peek at the landscape outside, or the ornamental touches that adorn the storage shelves. Save this picture!Wooden louvers were installed over the large open windows facing east-west not in order to cut the building off from its exterior, but rather to create a loose sense of connection to the outside. Save this picture!Sections and ElevationCentered on a traditional Japanese doma dirt floor area, this house promises to bring family members closer together, receive friends with ready hospitality, and create a sense of easy connection to the local community.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessBeton Hala Waterfront Center proposal / Djordje AlfirevicArticlesExhibition: (IM)PURE, (IN)FORMAL, (UN)BUILTArticles Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/144061/hgcnh-house-code-architectural-design Clipboard Japan “COPY” Architects: Code Architectural Design Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyHouses•Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/144061/hgcnh-house-code-architectural-design Clipboard HGCNH House / Code Architectural DesignSave this projectSaveHGCNH House / Code Architectural Design Save this picture!+ 16 Share Year:  HGCNH House / Code Architectural Design 2009 “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeCode Architectural DesignOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on June 18, 2011Cite: “HGCNH House / Code Architectural Design” 18 Jun 2011.

Defend Portland! Defend People’s Resistance! No Police State!

first_imgDespite the brutal attempt of the White House to crush the heroic Black Lives Matter movement by sending camouflaged federal agents − secret police − to Portland, Chicago and other U.S. cities, the movement and all who support it have been fighting back.The initial response to the threat of a police state − when mothers and working and oppressed people in general put their bodies on the line in Portland − is the best news possible. Millions of people understand that the young people of color, LGBTQ2S+ people and the most militant forces in the streets with the Black Lives Matter movement have accomplished more in two months than decades of electoral campaigns in dismantling institutional racism.We, in Workers World Party, call for taking the example of all those resisting in Portland. Continue and expand your support across the country for the street actions against the brutal actions of the federal agents and local police.The movement can dare to use every instrument at its disposal − protests, strikes, blocking highways as well as every legal challenge. And we can ally with everyone who fights these police-state measures. We know, however, that we must depend on ourselves and not on politicians and courts to win this battle.When Trump attempted in early June to declare martial law to smash the movement, this boomeranged against him and the movement came out stronger. Now Trump is sending in the most reactionary Homeland Security and ICE thugs to attack our movement.The movement’s strongest weapon is its readiness to adopt whatever tactics are necessary to battle the repressive force of the state and to continue to flood the streets.We must show our solidarity with the many communities for which anonymous officers abducting people into unmarked vans is nothing new. The migrant community has struggled against the racist deportation machine for decades.Black, Brown and Indigenous people inside the U.S. have borne the brunt of racist violence and repression by the police, slave patrols, vigilantes, COINTELPRO, and U.S. troops.We must also show our solidarity with the many oppressed nations around the world fighting for liberation who have endured the most vicious invasions, deaths squads, proxy wars, economic sanctions and drone strikes by U.S. imperialism.A broad movement of organized working and oppressed people, with the leadership of the most oppressed and resisting militantly in the streets is necessary to push forward and block this police state move.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist freed on bail after four months in prison

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa News Receive email alerts Madh Amadi, a freelance journalist who was arrested on 28 July, was freed on bail yesterday after paying 50 million toman (45,500 euros) in bail. As a result he called off his hunger strike. He is still awaiting trial.————————————————————————–23.11.2005 Black month for Iran’s journalistsReporters Without Borders today condemned a wave of summonses being issued to journalists at the intelligence ministry’s behest as well as other press freedom violations in the course of a month that has been especially tough for the Iranian media.“We call on the intelligence ministry to stop harassing and intimidating journalists with all these summonses,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is unacceptable that a country’s intelligence agencies take it upon themselves to try to dictate what journalists must write.”At least 10 journalists have been summoned for questioning, in the course of which they have been advised not to criticise the new government headed by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. They have also been “asked” not to write articles on sensitive issues such as Iran’s nuclear programme.Reporters Without Borders today also called for the immediate release of Madh Amadi and Masoud Bastani, who have been imprisoned since the summer on trumped-up charges, and condemned the beating which sports photographer Heshmatollah Bahadory received from a policeman on 14 November“The detention of Amadi and Bastani is utterly arbitrary,” the organisation said. “It is time for the Iranian courts to stop systematically targetting journalists.”A freelance journalist who works for several news media, Amadi was arrested on 28 July in the Sarvabad border area after visiting the Kurdish part of neighbouring Irak. He was sentenced by a court in Marivan, in Iran’s Kurdish-dominated northwestern region, to a year in prison and 50 lashes for “leaving the country illegally.” The reason for his arrest is not known, but it could be linked to his investigation of a massacre of residents in the village of Garna (in the Kurdish part of Iran) in the 1980s. Many documents about the massacre which he had collected were seized at the time of his arrest.Amadi was due to have been freed on bail yesterday but, against all expectation, the court opposed his released. In protest, he immediately went on hunger strike and sowed up his mouth. He is scheduled to appear before the court again soon in connection with other charges.Bastani, the young editor of Nedai Eslahat (a daily that was closed by the authorities in 2003) and a contributor to such pro-reform newspapers as Etemad, Toseeh and Joumhoryat, was arrested on 25 July outside Milad hospital in Tehran while covering a demonstration in support of imprisoned fellow journalist Akbar Ganji.He was convicted of libel in 2003 and was sentenced to six months in prison, 70 lashes and a five-year ban on practising journalism. But he was released after spending a few days in Arak prison, in the centre of the country.The authorities say he has been sent back to prison to finish serving the 2003 sentence. But as the plaintiffs have withdrawn their libel suit, there is no longer any case against him. The state prosecutor in Arak recently banned Bastani from talking to the judge in charge of the case. After being allowed out of prison for a month, Bastani had to return to Arak prison on 5 November.Bahadory, who works for the daily Pirozy and the news website www.tebyan.net, was attacked by a police officer for no apparent reason while covering a football match in Tehran stadium on 14 November and had to spend several days in the intensive care unit of Atyer hospital. Reporters Without Borders said it called on the Tehran police chief to keep his promise to punish the police officer involved.

Muri: ECISD not going back to normal

first_img Pinterest Muri: ECISD not going back to normal As Ector County ISD moves through the COVID-19 pandemic and all its attendant uncertainty, Superintendent Scott Muri knows one thing for sure: things will not go back to business as usual when it’s over. Even before the pandemic, ECISD was working on its strategic plan, but it found that items in the plan had to be acted on immediately due to circumstances. Recently Muri published an article in EdSurge titled “The Pandemic Closed Our Doors But Opened Our Minds: Why My School District Will Not Return to ‘Normal.’” A year ago, ECISD looked at its data and realized it was not where it wanted to be and that the way the district was designed was not working for every student. “… In fact it wasn’t working for most of our kids. That’s not a place we want to go back to. We want to go a new place, a better place. We’ve learned a lot through the pandemic,” Muri said. “There are things that we don’t want to continue like I am wearing a mask right now. I would hope that is not a part of my permanent future, so that’s something that we would clearly like to change but other things that we’ve learned are pretty remarkable.” For example, Muri visited Wilson & Young Medal of Honor Middle School Thursday. “… They’re in the process of finishing up an assessment called the Measure of Academic Progress. … One of the things that they noticed in their academic areas is their virtual students performed better in the area of reading and English than their face-to-face students. Their face-to-face students performed better in the area of math than their virtual students. At this point in time most of the children that are virtual are experiencing success at virtual, whereas at the beginning of the year we had almost 85 percent of our kids virtual. Some kids were really struggling. Many of the kids that are still in a virtual environment are experiencing success,” Muri said. He added that he found that data point from Wilson & Young fascinating. Muri said officials at Wilson & Young are trying to figure out why the virtual students are doing better in English than the in-person ones. “… Is that a better way for kids to learn, or are there specific strategies that those teachers are using with those kids in a virtual environment that are better than the strategies that are being used face-to-face. The data was surprising to them. They didn’t anticipate that, so they’re going to dig into that to better understand that. That data should create positive change for those kids, potentially. If there are strategies that they are using virtually, how could we replicate those same strategies in a face-to-face environment?” “How can we leverage the tools of technology effectively much more so than we’re doing today?” Muri said he has had “numerous” parents ask him if ECISD will continue offering virtual learning for their students because some have blossomed as students in that environment. Because of the pandemic, Muri added, teachers have learned improved their use of technology. “… Our kids are leveraging technology to a much higher level. In some cases, that’s good for them, learning new tools, learning new ways of communicating, learning new strategies and techniques that are proving to be effective. Those are the things that we need to continue,” Muri said. He noted that one of the comments he has received from teachers is they have realized once again how important the relationship between the teacher, student and parent is. “The pandemic has required much more communication between the school and family. Our teachers have learned a lot about the family lives of some of our kids. They’ve engaged in many more conversations with moms and dads about how to support kids at home. So that is something that we want to continue. The relationships that have been developed between teacher and student and family are critical. They are essential to kids moving forward,” Muri said. Research shows that when children have healthy relationships with adults on campus whether it’s a teacher, cafeteria worker or custodian, their achievement increases, he said. Tied into that, Panorama Education conducted a School Connectedness Survey this fall. School Connectedness is defined as the belief adults and peers care about their learning and about them as individuals. “… This fall, 59 percent of students, in grades 3-12, said they feel connected (61 percent is the national average in a pre-COVID atmosphere). Our goal is to be at the national average next spring and at 63% by 2024,” Jan. 19th’s school board recap said. The survey covered sense of belonging, school climate, rigorous expectations, school engagement, and supportive relationships. Overall, the highest rated area was supportive relationships with 72 percent positive responses; the lowest area was school engagement at 45 percent positive responses. Another survey will be conducted in the spring. Muri said students also were surveyed on engagement. Students said they were sitting too much and that they need to be more active. “… Teachers are not as comfortable putting kids together in groups. Kids are not using manipulatives and it’s all because of the virus. It’s not wanting to spread the virus on campus, so the pandemic has created a situation where they are a bit more sedentary in the school environment; not as engaged with as many manipulatives or other strategies that teachers were using. That’s something that we want to end. …,” Muri said. “I’m anxious for us to get on the other side of that. I want kids to have manipulatives in math classes so they can learn math better. I want kids to be able to work in small groups and work with each other. I want kids to be able to collaborate closely with each other. Some of those best practices are missing from our classrooms …,” Muri said. He did note that some students have developed better relationships with their teachers virtually than they had in person. The pandemic has also exposed the haves and have-nots in ECISD. One example is internet access at home. He noted that there are some families who don’t want internet in their homes. “We had talked about that as a district. A part of our strategic plan was to ensure that over the next four years every family has broadband in their home, but we’ve had to significantly accelerate that work. … There are kids even still today, it’s January of 2021, and we have some of our students that are at home without internet access because it is simply not available to them and they’re learning through pencil-paper packets still today.” “I know that the learning of those children has been significantly impacted because of this that’s just not right. We as a community, as a state, as a nation have the ability to provide high-speed broadband to every family. Broadband should be a utility, just like electricity and water the other basic utilities that families fundamentally have in their homes,” Muri said. The district is working with SpaceX on a pilot project to provide broadband to families in the Pleasant Farms area, but that is not ready to go yet. Food is another matter. Part of the district’s strategic plan was to ensure that all students over the next couple of years, regardless of income status, would have access to a free breakfast and lunch. “But we accelerated that, and so today, all of our students have access to free breakfast and lunch,” Muri said. Meals are provided at school, for pickup and delivery. “We actually have hundreds of meals delivered every day,” Muri said. There is a team of volunteers supplemented by the delivery firm Texas to Go. “… We know how important good nutrition is and we know that some of our kids are completely dependent upon public schools to provide meals, but the pandemic was another stark reminder of the disparities that exist in our own community and how we have kids that will not eat unless we feed them. And that’s wrong. We have to do better as a community to make sure all our kids have access to food on a daily basis … The pandemic has, I won’t say taught us, but it has reminded us with some really powerful examples about the disparities that exist, the inequities that exist in our own community” and how important it is that they work hard to close those gaps. Meetings, travel and conferences are other aspects of life that have changed during COVID-19. Even meetings within the administration building are held over Zoom with each official in their own office. Muri said he can’t wait to return to in-person meetings for his team. However, large principal meetings, for example, may continue to be held online. With principals scattered across a wide area, the meetings can take half the day. “With Zoom, it’s two hours and yes you have taken one minute to log in but then you’re on your campus and you’re there for the rest of the day,” Muri said. As far as travel, Muri said it would probably be a mixed bag. ECISD is part of the Texas School Alliance which normally involves taking a day and flying to Austin and back. Now it’s a three-hour Zoom meeting. Testifying before the legislature, though, will not happen as usual this session. Fortunately, Muri said, the local representatives are very accessible. He added that it is “critically important” to testify in front of committees. “… I’m not sure we’ll have as many of those this session as in the past and will have hopefully in the future,” Muri said. Starting the week of Jan. 25 is the midwinter Texas Association of School Administrators Conference which Muri has attended since he has worked in Texas. “For the first time, it’s going to be virtual. I’ll be curious to see how engaging that is. …,” Muri said.
