Saratoga is another iteration of Starter Home*, an entry level housing program using inventive land strategies coupled with design to develop homeownership opportunities in urban neighborhoods. Like other homes in this program, it is based on the reclamation of an otherwise vacant and unused substandard parcel. The project, unlike previous versions, originated as a commission by private clients interested in replicating the program.Save this picture!Courtesy of OJTSave this picture!Courtesy of OJTSave this picture!Concept AxonometricIn keeping with the generalized precepts of speculative development, 4514 S. Saratoga is a standard three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home. The limited site area — about a third the size of a traditional parcel in New Orleans — required program be stacked vertically and efficiently. An entry stoop was carved from the ground floor footprint and served to internally organize the main living spaces. A back porch and a small yard occupy the limited space required by setbacks. The second floor has two compact bed and bathrooms. The third-floor functions as an additional bedroom or flex space with walk-in access to a large storage area.Save this picture!© William CrockerSave this picture!Sections 2Save this picture!© William CrockerThe overall form, ambiguously reminiscent of a traditional home, was devised to manipulate the perception of its true height and scale. The massing moves up and out, reflecting the open space requirements of the first floor and the need to maximize permitted buildable area on the remaining floors. This is further reinforced with the detailing of the exterior cladding. Like other Starter Home* projects, 4514 S Saratoga needed to utilize a ubiquitous and cheap material. In this case conventional cementitious panels were detailed to step out at controlled intervals to obscure the height of floor plates. Vertical batten strips, placed at varying widths, were misaligned to reinforce the stepped banding. From the street the upper floor is encapsulated in the volume of the roof, with the eve line no higher than a typical two-story home. The form opens up towards the rear and side to allow windows into the third-floor room. This peaked portion of the home, while not immediately present from its own street front, is seen along adjacent streets in an intentional interaction with the adjacent rooftop dormers, uncannily present though not entirely clear where it belongs.Save this picture!© William CrockerProject gallerySee allShow lessWill Architecture in the Future Be a Luxury Service?ArticlesMoscow Urban Forum: Rem Koolhaas, Vladimir Putin and the Future of MoscowArticles Share United States ArchDailycenter_img Starter Home* No. 3 / OJTSave this projectSaveStarter Home* No. 3 / OJT Save this picture!© William Crocker+ 24Curated by Fernanda Castro Share 2017 Year:  CopyHouses•New Orleans, United States Photographs:  William Crocker Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOJTOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcretePlastic#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew OrleansUnited StatesPublished on August 02, 2018Cite: “Starter Home* No. 3 / OJT” 02 Aug 2018.

This house is located deep into a small alley of Hoi An ancient town, which is a World Heritage site. Therefore, we are required to comply with strict regulations of Hoi An People’s Committee on planning, architecture, and construction density of Hoi An People’s Committee. The object is to design a house for 5 members of 3 generations. The design itself has to be suitable for the modern lifestyle as well as living close to nature; it is not following the ancient design of Hoi An ancient town, but also has to have basic features of indigenous architecture. Especially, the eldest person in the house, who is the father of the host, has suffered from illness and difficulty in walking.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungTherefore, the house should provide a quiet space suitable for his daily activities as well as create an optimistic atmosphere. The main common space of the family is on the ground floor. The kitchen has a rigid connection to the parent’s bedroom while the middle yard is considered as a feature spot of the house. The middle yard has lots of trees and the flow of air and light is also entering the house through the yard, ensuring maximum ventilation.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungSave this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungVentilation is the key feature of this house as it helps the house avoid moisture, humidity, which are not good for the health of the family, especially the host’s father. On the first floor are the host’s bedroom and the bedroom of their newborn baby. In order to maximize the natural light and air, both bedrooms have their own big glass windows look toward a skylight of the house. That way there will be always fresh air in those bedrooms. On the attic floor, we arrange lots of trees on a small terrace in front of the worship room, which reduces the impact from the heat of the sun toward the lower floors.Save this picture!Courtesy of To Huu DungThis is a simple way we have used for most of our projects. Friends or relatives of the host can use the guest’s bedroom at the back of the attic floor whenever they visit the family. Last but not least, we know we have done a meaningful project for the family as we can see they are counting every single day toward the day they can move in their new home.

A message to the Jan. 19 marches: Building unity and solidarity

first_imgWomen and all gender-oppressed people are under attack. From the federal government shutdown, hitting women workers hardest;  to the Education Department’s assault on Title IX; to the war on reproductive justice, especially abortion rights; to the persecution of migrant/refugee women and the kidnapping of their children; to escalating violence against LGBTQ2S people, especially trans women of color; to attacks on disabled women and the incarceration of poor and oppressed women — during this period of ultra-reactionary rule, some of the harshest blows are aimed at the gender oppressed.How do we mount an effective, winning counteroffensive? There is only one way: unity and solidarity.Unity against sexism. Unity against misogyny. Unity against rape culture. Unity in defense of trans and gender-nonconforming people.Unity, above all, against racism and misogynoir—that is, the special oppression of and attacks against Black women.On Jan. 19, women’s marches against Trump will be held across the country, including worldwide for the third consecutive year. Unfortunately, many will be anything but united. After spurious charges of anti-Semitism against women of color who’ve led the national women’s march movement, there will be separate, competing marches in several cities including New York City.This splintering weakens the struggle. It serves the interests of Trump, the right-wing Republicans, the Democratic Party leadership and especially the capitalist class they truly represent. There can be little doubt these had a hand to some degree, however hidden, in concocting the phony “controversy” to create this split.The mounting attacks on march leaders Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez, three women of color, are doing the work of the enemy, even if they don’t realize it. Everyone who really wants to fight against gender oppression must close ranks and reject these efforts to divide the movement, despite any get-out-the-vote slogans from the Democratic Party.Why this slander? Why now?Which class benefits from anti-Semitism?Over the last few decades in the U.S., claims of anti-Semitism have become the go-to move against Black activists especially. This is meant to confuse people, to diffuse support, to block solidarity — in other words, to sow disunity. Which is exactly what has happened in the lead-up to this women’s march.What a cynical strategy. There is a deep, long, very real history of anti-Semitism. But it is not to be found in the Black or any other oppressed community. It flourished in Europe over centuries, fomented by the czars in Russia and ultimately, horrifically, by the genocidal Nazi regime. Tens of millions died, both at the hands of the fascist death machine and in the heroic effort, led by the Red Army of the Soviet Union, to defeat it.The U.S. has its own sordid history of anti-Semitism. There was early 20th century anti-Jewish propagandizing by powerful figures such as capitalist Henry Ford. There were long decades of discrimination in housing and employment. And there is the current period, with Nazis marching in Charlottesville, Va., chanting, “Jews will not replace us,” and a white supremacist murdering 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue last year.However it manifests, scapegoating of Jewish people as somehow the cause of everyone’s troubles always emanates from one source. And that’s the ruling class, which is overwhelmingly WASP — white Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Its goals: to break up unity, undermine the working-class struggle and deflect anger from itself as the real cause of our problems.No other force in society, least of all any oppressed community, has the motive or the power to promote anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism serves only ruling-class interests. The only actual threat to Jewish people is from the ruling class and those it mobilizes.Solidarity with the Palestinian peopleThere is another element at work in developments around the women’s march. That is the question of Palestine. As so often happens, solidarity with the Palestinian people’s righteous struggle for self-determination is being conflated with anti-Semitism. This is a false equation, and it makes the claims against Tamika Mallory, who is Black, and Linda Sarsour, who is Palestinian, particularly odious. It’s outrageous that Mallory and Sarsour have been forced to repeatedly affirm their opposition to anti-Semitism simply because they stand with Palestine.We too support Palestine. As we oppose anti-Semitism and Zionism. As we support the rights of women and all gender-oppressed people.As we fight against racism. As we defend Black, Brown and Indigenous women.We call for unity among all working and oppressed people against our real enemies. Crush Trump! Defend women’s lives! Defend LGBTQ2S people! Unite! Unite! Unite to fight!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Former volleyball standout McCall announces transfer to UCLA

Photo Courtesy of + posts Twitter ReddIt Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech printOutside hitter elan McCall missed significant time in her final season at TCU with a leg injury. Photo by Heesoo Yang.Former TCU volleyball outside hitter elan McCall announced Saturday via Instagram that she would be leaving Fort Worth and transferring to UCLA.The reasoning behind the transfer remains unknown, as neither McCall nor TCU Volleyball has disclosed the reasoning for her departure.“I want to do right by her [McCall] and right by our program and just stay really focused on the girls here,” TCU head coach Jill Kramer said.McCall shined bright in her rookie campaign last season with the Frogs. The Leander, Texas native led TCU with 370 kills, racking up six Big 12 weekly honors along the way. After the season, she was named an AVCA Honorable Mention All-American as well as to the All-Big 12 First Team.After playing for the U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team — Anaheim over the offseason, she missed the first 10 matches of her sophomore season with a nagging leg injury. Upon return, the hitter was able to play in just 51 sets, recording 93 kills.McCall’s absence certainly appeared to hurt the Frogs in 2019, as TCU finished 12-18 on the season, including a 4-12 record in conference play.On the other hand, UCLA finished at 19-12 last season, earning an appearance in the NCAA tournament. The Bruins would sweep Notre Dame in the first round of the postseason before falling to eventual runner-up Wisconsin in the second round.Despite the loss of her top offensive player, Kramer remains positive about a TCU team that is returning the remaining five starters.“We’ve got a young team who gained a lot of experience last year, and I’m excited about them coming back,” Kramer said. “At the end of the day, I do right by the girls on the team when I stay focused on them and what we are trying to accomplish.” Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

RSF meets with Algeria’s communications minister

first_img News June 30, 2016 RSF meets with Algeria’s communications minister Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) called for an end to harassment of Algerian media outlets and journalists when it met with Algerian communications minister Hamid Grine for the first time in Algiers today (1 June) to offer its recommendations on respect for media freedom. Follow the news on Algeria RSF welcomed the fact that media freedom without any form of prior censorship is guaranteed for the first time in the constitutional reform adopted by Algeria’s parliament in January, but said legislation must now be harmonised with the new constitution and with the provisions on media freedom and freedom of information in the international accords ratified by Algeria. Concern was voiced about media dependence on the state’s monopoly of printing and distribution, about selective allocation of state advertising by the National Agency for Publishing and Advertising (ANEP) and about the directives reportedly given to private sector companies not to place advertising with media critical of the government. All of these problems indicated a dangerous contraction in the space for media freedom in Algeria, RSF said. RSF also voiced concern about repeated verbal threats against media outlets by leading Algerian politicians in recent months on the basis of such vague accusations as attacking “society’s values,” the “principles of the nation” and “Algeria’s symbols.” RSF said it hoped that the Broadcasting Regulation Authority (ARAV), a new independent agency that is supposed to regulate the broadcasting sector, would begin working as soon as possible. Its new members were appointed on 25 May but it is not yet operational. Finally, RSF said it hoped that the authorities would respect the desire of the owners and journalists of the independent Arabic-language media group El Khabar to continue operating by selling part of its shares to the Algerian industrial company Ness Prod. The communication ministry sought an order from the Bir Mourad Rais court in Algiers on 27 April holding up the sale while the judicial authorities verify whether it complies with the 2012 Code of Information. “The communication minister appreciated our concerns and we hope that the assurances our organization received during this interview will be followed by an overall improvement in the situation of freedom of information,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk. Algeria is ranked 129th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
