The Maze Apartments / CHT Architects

first_imgArchDaily 2012 photographs:  Christine FrancisPhotographs:  Christine Francis Save this picture!© Christine FrancisText description provided by the architects. Conceptual Framework The Maze Apartments is a five-storey building comprising 32 one- and two-bedroom apartments. The concept behind its facade evolved through the exploration of graphic patterns and how they could be manifested in contemporary architecture. During conceptual design, works by artists, such as Helmut Federle and Sol LeWitt, as well as diagrams and patterns, were referenced. The found geometry of a maze was eventually projected onto the facade grid, informing both the composition and placement of architectural elements. The spandrel weaves balconies and windows in a ribbon-like manner, adhering to an order, yet creating a non-repetitive facade that becomes the built diagram. Essentially, the building is an orthogonal block that has been carved into with intent. The materials are inspired by Melbourne’s apartment typologies, yet are applied in a way that liberates them from their typical use. A non-repetitive composition of concrete forms, that float between ribbons of glass and planes of timber, results in a unified, identifiable and resolved presence. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisPublic and Cultural Benefits With its raw and robust materiality, the building pays homage to Richmond’s former light-industrial context, while also acting as a contemporary example of residential architecture. In fact, The Maze Apartments has been referenced by the City of Yarra’s planning department as an architectural precedent for future developments. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisRelationship of Built Form to Context The building is sympathetic to Richmond’s industrial history, while referencing the area’s current residential and commercial uses. Its surrounding urban fabric consists of hard-wearing, refurbished industrial buildings, as well as high-density, multi-residential developments. The site sits on the edge of the high-density precinct, where it meets an established, single-storey residential neighbourhood to the north. The orthogonal block-form of the building responds to the streetscape, as well as the different site interfaces, where it varies in height, composition and setbacks. Various textures and materials have been used to provide visual interest and resonate with the surrounding precinct. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisProgram Resolution The client brief was to build a cost-effective, raw and robust building, with maximum amenity. A stacked floor plan meets the commercial objectives, without compromising the architectural aspirations for the building. Apartment typologies reflect current market trends with high-quality detailing and finishes. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisIntegration of Allied Disciplines Close collaboration between the architects and consultants was a hallmark of this project. By working closely together, the team was able to ensure the architectural intent of the building was not compromised. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisCost/Value Outcome In order to achieve a cost-effective outcome, a stacked floor plan was implemented, however, the complexity of the facade helps to create a non-repetitive aesthetic. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisSustainability The majority of apartments are north-facing with excellent solar access. Apartment layout and building plate arrangement provide maximum daylight and natural ventilation. All south-facing apartments have large windows, without overhangs. High-performance glass and energy efficient systems have been used throughout. Save this picture!© Christine FrancisResponse to Client and User Needs Effective planning and a strong architectural concept were vital in attracting discerning owner-occupiers. Well-thought-out design also ensured that overshadowing to the development to the south was kept to a minimum.

USDA Outlook Forecasts Increased Exports

first_img U.S. agricultural exports in fiscal year 2021 are projected at $140.5 billion, up $5.5 billion from previous estimates. The Department of Agriculture this week released its Outlook for U.S. Agricultural Trade report.The report says the increase is primarily driven by higher exports of soybeans and corn. Soybean exports are forecast up $4.2 billion from fiscal year 2020 to $20.4 billion, largely due to expected strong demand from China and reduced competition from Brazil.Corn exports are projected up $700 million to $9.0 billion on expectations of higher export volume.Livestock, poultry, and dairy exports are forecast up $500 million to $32.3 billion in 2021, led by higher beef and veal, variety meat, dairy, and poultry.Agricultural exports to China are forecast at $18.5 billion, an increase of $4.5 billion, largely on higher expected soybean sales.Agricultural exports to Canada and Mexico are forecast at $21.0 billion and $19.3 billion, respectively. And 2021 U.S. agricultural imports are forecast at $136.0 billion, $4.3 billion higher than previous estimates.

RSF urges UN committee to question Sri Lanka’s intelligence chief

Then Deputy Inspector General Mendis oversaw two police units, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID), during the final phase of the Sri Lankan civil war from March 2008 until June 2009. A UN investigation accused both units of torture and sexual violence during the period that Mendis was in charge.Under Mendis, the CID and TID abducted, arrested, detained and tortured many journalists along with hundreds of other civilians. After release, many of these journalists fled the country fearing reprisals. The well-known journalist J. S. Tissainayagam, the writer and publisher V. Jasikaran and his wife V. Valarmathy, and the journalist K. Wijesinghe are among the prominent media figures who experienced cruel treatment at the hands of the TID. Dr. Thurairajah Varatharajah, who was detained by the CID in 2009 along with four other Tamil doctors, was subjected to inhuman treatment for being the main source of information from the war zone for international media outlets during the final stages of Sri Lanka’s bloody war, when no independent journalists were allowed to cover the fighting.“RSF and JDS ask UNCAT to question National Intelligence Chief Sisira Mendis on the conduct of these police units under his command and to determine who was responsible for the crimes against journalists and violations of press freedom,” said Benjamin Ismail, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“Mendis cannot deny being aware of what happened to these journalists and their sources while they were held on his watch. We have credible evidence that they were subjected to inhuman treatment while in detention and were intimidated following their release.”The highly questionable conduct of the CID and the TID under the leadership of Mendis was detailed in a lengthy submission to UNCAT by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP), a Sri Lankan initiative that combats impunity for crimes against civilians and is funded by the Johannesburg-based Human Rights Foundation.Sri Lanka is one of the 159 states that are party to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. As such, it is required to undergo regular review by the UN on how it is implementing the Convention and previous UNCAT recommendations.

Interest growing in Farmers Market

first_img The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder “One regluar shopper refers to the Pioneer Farmers Market as her ‘garden,’” Powell said. “She says ‘See you at the garden’ and she really means it. She is not going to plant a garden so the farmers market is her garden. We have a lot of faithful shoppers and we are a growing market.”The annual fee to be a member of the Pioneer Farmers Market is $50. Member producers benefit from the farmer’s market advertisements and other promotions. They also benefit from beng a part of a group that works so well together.“If one producer doesn’t have what shoppers are looking for, they will help them find it,” Powell said.Pam Sanders, market manager, said that to be a certified producer for the Alabama Farmers Market Authority a producer has to grow what he or she sells or obtain special permission from the Farmers Market Authority to sale produce that isn’t grown in this area. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Interest growing in Farmers Market Sponsored Content Plans are to expand this year’s farmers market to include bakes items, cut flowers and crafts.“We want the market to be a place where homemade and handmade items can be sold,” Sanders said. “That should add a lot of interest to our market and also give local people a place to sale what they make. The farmer’s market supports our local farmers and also gives the people of our community a chance to buy produce that is farm fresh. The farmer’s market benefits all of us. So, we encourage all producers to be a part the Pioneer Farmers Market.”Those who were unable to attend Tuesday night’s meeting, may contact the Pike County Extension Office on South Three Notch Street in Troy for more information or call 334- 566-0985. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Articlecenter_img The spring planting season is not far around the corner so it’s time to begin making plans for the 2010 Pike Pioneer Farmers Market.And, if Tuesday night’s meeing of producers and those who are interested in becoming producers is any indication, the 2010 Pike Pioneer Farmers Market should be one of the best ever, said Tammy Powell, Pike County Extension coordinator.“We had 23 people at the meeting including all of the producers from last year and some new folks who indicated that they want to be a part of the Pioneer Farmers Market,” Powell said. “I think the increase in the number of potential producers is due to the fact that people are looking for ways to make extra income. The farmers market is a good way to do so for those who are diligent, dedicted and willing to work hard.”Powell said the Pioneer Farmers Market had a very successful season in 2009 with more participating producers and more shoppers who have come to depend on the farmers market for farm fresh produce.

Officer who shot Jacob Blake acted ‘within policy,’ won’t face discipline, chief says

first_imgWisconsin Department of Justice(KENOSHA, Wisc.) — Officer Rusten Sheskey was acting “within policy” when he fired seven times toward Jacob Blake, a Black man, last year, the Kenosha, Wisconsin, Police Department said.Sheskey, who is white, will not be disciplined for his use of force and is now back on the job after returning from administrative leave on March 31, Chief Daniel Miskinis announced Tuesday.“Although this incident has been reviewed at multiple levels, I know that some will not be pleased with the outcome,” Miskinis said in a statement. “However, given the facts, the only lawful and appropriate decision was made.”In addition to an internal investigation, the Aug. 23 incident was investigated by an outside agency, an independent expert and the Kenosha County District Attorney, Miskinis said. No charges have been filed in connection with the shooting.The shooting occurred after officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute and were attempting to detain Blake, who had a warrant out for his arrest. After Blake walked to the front of his vehicle toward the driver’s side door, Sheskey fired his gun seven times toward his back.Blake was struck by six of the bullets and is now paralyzed from the waist down.An unfolded knife was found on the driver’s side floorboard of Blake’s vehicle, authorities said.The viral video of the incident captured on a witness’ cellphone sparked days of large-scale protests in Kenosha.Last month, Blake filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against Sheskey, accusing the officer of using “excessive and unnecessary” force.“We believe that this lawsuit will help establish accountability,” B’Ivory LaMarr, one of Blake’s attorneys, told ABC News at the time.In announcing that no officers will be charged in the shooting, Kenosha County District Attorney Mike Graveley said earlier this year that Sheskey was justified in his use of force and was acting in self-defense because Blake was armed with a knife.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Michael Card at O.C. Tabernacle on Sunday

first_imgOcean City Tabernacle Singer, songwriter, author and Bible teacher Michael Card will speak at the 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services and perform in concert at 7 p.m. at the Ocean City Tabernacle this Sunday, Aug. 11.In a career that took off with his debut album, First Light (1981), Card has recorded more 37 albums, authored over 27 books, hosted a radio program, and written for a wide range of magazines.  While he has penned such musical favorites as “El Shaddai,” “Love Crucified Arose,” and “Immanuel,” Card said he never imagined selling more than 4 million albums and writing over 19 No.1 hits. The popularity of his work seemed a stark contrast to his goal in life, to simply and quietly teach the Bible.  And even as music provided him the opportunity to share insight gained through extensive research, writing songs alone limited what he felt called to share.  So, Card entered into book writing where he has garnered numerous awards as well as teaching, preaching, and conference speaking. Michael Card will perform some of his hit songs. (Courtesy Ocean City Tabernacle)Card is a graduate of Western Kentucky University, where he earned his bachelors and master degrees in biblical studies.  He has also received honorary PhD’s in music and Christian education from Whitfield Seminary and Philadelphia Biblical University. Ocean City Tabernacle features distinguished speakers every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. through Sept. 8.  For a complete list of events and speakers, visit www.OCTabernacle.org.last_img read more
