JES House is the story of a project in which the nature of the assignment prevailed over the proposals related to the site. Other factors took over, overpowering the site conditions -environment, orientation, planning- and certain reflections on materiality.  The persistence of the developers led us to leave the location-bound ideas aside, one by one, to meet the sole condition of the assignment: to make a contemporary revision of the family home.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaA few hundred meters from JES House, the former family house rises with two bays parallel to the façade, with a central access and rooms on the left and on the right. It is indeed inspired on the family’s first house located in the historic centre of Rafelbunyol. The three of them follow the  scheme of the traditional Valencian house: a housing volume with rooms on both sides of a central corridor, followed by a patio or corral. This is a very common typology in the settlements with an agricultural tradition and has remained unchanged through the early twentieth century and until today.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaTrue to its referents, the JES House distributes its functional program on two different levels: the ground floor houses the most public uses -kitchen, living room and office- and the privative ones -bedrooms and bathrooms- are on the first floor. Similarly, a series of variations on the traditional typology are introduced. The rooms are subjected to two opening actions: one is carried out in the central bay, allowing a double height in the dining room which houses the stairs to the first floor,  and another one from kitchen to the living room through the dining-room, which allows their use in sequence. This double opening, both vertical and horizontal, gives the house a marked visual directionality from the street to the patio and from the living-room to the kitchen.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaThe resulting volume of the house is blunt but with a great sense of proportionality. There are no excesses, no innovative solutions, just a domestic order brought to scale and the composition. The openings on the façade are tailored to the rooms and threshold spaces, such as the back porch. In the central bay, two large openings stand out, reminding us of country houses with a carriage entrance and revealing the space at double height at the back.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Milena VillalbaWithin the unquestionable containment of JES house, there is a modern reading of traditional materiality. The whitewashing is now a cement plastering, the plinth is ceramic and the carpentry and window sills are metallic. The technique is contemporary but the essence is traditional. All in all, JES house is just that: the last one in a series of family houses both inheriting the constructive tradition of the countryside and reflecting its time.Save this picture!© Milena VillalbaProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse dos Peixes Falantes / M-ArquitectosSelected ProjectsEducation, Flexibility and Opportunity.

‘We are a new unsettling force!’

first_imgAlbany, N.Y. — New York state legislators were challenged on June 4, when a multinational force of more than 200 people blocked the entrance to the governor’s office and legislative chambers here in Albany, the New York state capital. Carrying banners and signs, the protesters — 27 of whom were arrested — chanted to demand decent health care and an end to the ecological devastation that most harms working-class communities and people of color.The protesters were with the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival. Before this fourth week of civil disobedience here, they have marched and rallied on the Capitol lawn and occupied its halls, singing civil rights songs and hanging banners.Speakers on June 4 included health care workers, who complained about insurance restrictions and poverty limits, demanding health care for all. Some health care workers cannot even afford needed insurance without working two jobs. Speakers also raised the problems of fossil fuel dangers, housing for the poor near toxic dumps, highway pollution, and Puerto Rico’s devastation and lack of assistance after Hurricane María.PPC actions are being held in Washington, D.C., and 35 states. On June 4, hundreds were blocked from entering the Capitol in Frankfort, Ky., including the Rev. William Barber, founder and co-chair of the campaign.The city of Albany has attempted to bill the PPC $1,451.49 in security costs — after they chose to heavily police our peaceful actions.The PPC plans to proceed with week five, demanding “the right for all to live and organize: jobs, income, labor and housing!”WW photo: Anne PrudenFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Radio reporter badly beaten by some 30 Mexico City police

first_imgNews Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Reporters Without Borders condemns the beating which Arturo García of radio Reporte 98.5 FM received from police officers while covering the arrest of a taxi driver in Mexico City on 3 November. He was threatened, punched and clubbed many times. NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Receive email alerts November 7, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio reporter badly beaten by some 30 Mexico City police Reports Reporters Without Borders today condemned the severe beating which radio journalist Arturo García of Reporte 98.5 FM received from about 30 police officers as a result of a comment he made while covering the arrest of a taxi driver in the old part of Mexico City on 3 November.“It is outrageous that a journalist should be physically attacked because of a comment that upset the police,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call on the city authorities to carry out a thorough investigation into the exact circumstances of this assault and to punish those responsible.”The police at first let García through to cover the arrest of the taxi driver who, according to his friends, had been mistreated by the police. When asked the reason for the arrest, the police reportedly told García the taxi driver had been “obstructing traffic.” García then commented: “That’s not a sufficient reason.”Although he was in the middle of giving his station a report by mobile phone, the police insulted him, grabbed his phone and arrested him, ignoring the fact that both his jacket and his car displayed the logo of Grupo Imagen, the media group that owns Reporte 98.5 FM.The police then punched and clubbed García for about eight minutes. In the course of this beating, one of the police officers reportedly raised his right hand over García and told him: “This is the hand I am going to kill you with.”Grupo Imagen has filed a complaint against the police. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Mexico May 5, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF_en to go further News Organisation MexicoAmericas MexicoAmericas News April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Amie’s positive message for visually impaired

first_img Previous articleCastle plan based on Hollywood rather than authenticityNext articleMayor Long makes city centre his priority admin Advertisement Linkedin Print Offers a variety of tips to those affectedMANY struggle to recognise the difference between a visually impaired person and one fully blind. That is the opinion of Amie Hynes Fitzpatrick, who has decided to set up her own blog, outlining her experiences as a visually impaired person.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Amie, 22, from Kerry, is a University of Limerick Journalism Graduate, who has a rare visual impairment called Stargardt disease.Stargardt disease is a progressive vision loss, which can often lead to blindness. The progression tends to begin early in life.In her blog, ‘Through the eyes of a V.I.P (visually impaired person),’Amie shares her own experiences, while offering advice for others.She offers a variety of tips for job interviews, shopping and transportation.Speaking to the Limerick Post, Amie said: “There are only a handful of people in Ireland who have Stargardt’s. I am centrally blind, so anything that falls in the path of my central vision is not visible to me. It is difficult growing up with this and feeling as if you have no one to talk to.“That is what my blog aims to do. I share my own experiences with other visually impaired people. For some, it can sometimes be difficult to face the reality of your disability”. She had three reasons for setting up her blog.“Firstly, I want to help people understand that a disability does not define who a person is. Secondly, to try to explain to people what it is like being visually impaired but not totally blind. And thirdly, to highlight how V.I.P’s do the same things and take part in the same activities as fully sighted people, just with a twist”.Amie has a positive attitude in that she highlights visually impaired people must accept their limitations to reach full potential.“I see every challenge in life as an opportunity because it is all about perspective. It is important, however, to recognise your own limits. You have to accept what you cannot do and then find a way around it to show the world what you can do”.

The Single Bench of Justice Jayant Nath has issued notices to the Election Commission of India and to the YSR Congress Party. Filed by Anna YSR Congress, the petition seeks a direction to be issued to the Election Commission of India to withdraw YSR Congress Party’s status as “recognised party” under Para 6A of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968 and to de-register the same under its inherent powers. The Petitioner claims that the YSR Congress has unlawfully appropriated the name ‘YSR’ and is illegally using the same on its party pamphlets, letterheads and collaterals. Despite assuring the Petitioner that it will not use the term YSR, the Petitioner argues that the ruling party of Andhra Pradesh is continuing to pass as a part of the Petitioner party in the eyes of the public. The petition states that: ‘This invites de-recognition of a recognised political party under Para 16A of the Symbols Order and for this purpose, the ECI possesses broad disciplinary/penal powers. This wilful and conscious disobedience, is aggravated by the fact that in the past, YSR Congress had applied for and was not granted right to use the abbreviation “YSR Congress.’ It is further submitted by the Petitioner that despite multiple complaints being filed, ECI has taken no action against the Respondent political party. The court will next take up this matter on September 3 Case Title: Anna YSR Congress v. Election Commission of India Next Storylast_img read more
