Ensignia-Gerber House is located on a 5000m2 triangular ecological plot within Tunquen, 120km away from Santiago Chile. The project called for the design of a vacation home for a couple and their guests.+ 29The strategies for the development of the project came from the dramatic conditions of the site context. The main ambition was to solve with a cohesive structure two opposite situations: On the one hand, follow through the slope towards the sea trying to find the stunning views of the North corner of the bay. On the other hand, distributing the programme perpendicularly to the slope, following the contour of the hill.Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalSave this picture!© Marcos MendizabalIn order to achieve this, the project is located at the most elevated portion of the plot, increasing the view angles. The programme establishes two separated cores with one common skin. One is the main living area, and the other as an attached guest quarters, connected by a covered terrace, protected from the ‘Surazo’ (typical cold wind coming from South-West). The main area is supported on the hill, following the contours from East to West, and establishing a direct and close relation with the terrain. In contrast the other zone is projected towards the slope direction granting additional views to the North.Save this picture!© Marcos MendizabalSave this picture!© Marcos MendizabalThe exterior of the house is established, with different folds between the roof and the exterior walls, making a continuous surface with black stone cladding. The outer skin protects the house from the climatic conditions and avoids the exposure to the street. A closed south façade contains only two openings, which allow access to the entrance and a small courtyard between the master bedroom and the living room, while a fully opened face to the North and West takes advantage of the views of the Pacific Ocean.Save this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Marcos MendizabalProject gallerySee allShow lessGiveaway: Win A Copy of ‘Richard Meier & Partners Complete Works’Architecture News100 Urban Trends: A Glossary of IdeasArchitecture News Share Ensignia-Gerber House / OF Arquitectos Projects Chile CopyAbout this officeOF ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlgarroboChilePublished on October 22, 2013Cite: “Ensignia-Gerber House / OF Arquitectos” 22 Oct 2013.

The Rodney house is located in the town of Villa Elisa, part of the city of La Plata, 15 km from its centre and 45 km from the City of Buenos Aires. The house is located in a peripheral lot where the urban fabric isn’t well established and municipal services and infrastructures are yet to arrive.Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGThe project is resolved with two systems. The first corresponds to a series of light vaults that are supported by Y-shaped reinforced concrete beams, designed to support the curvatures of the vaults. The second system, composed of a structural plinth, resolves the relationship between the building and the ground. Taking the slight differences in ground level it generates spaces for appropriation and contemplation mediating between the house and the landscape.Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGThe modulation of the vaults delimits the rooms. The bedroom is located in the first vault next to an inner water courtyard. The next two vaults make up the living room and kitchen space in direct relation to the garden and access. Consecutively there are two vaults that make up the gallery space, where the roof is dematerialized to achieve differentiated shadows and filters. The last vaulted enclosure corresponds to the office, which is separated from the more public space with a brick wall.Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGThe project seeks to mediate the spaces in their different scales. A series of brick walls configure the access, these generate a route that, accompanied by the existing lime trees, allows a gradual entrance by acting as transition elements. From the interior, the baseboards, the walls and the sequences of the vaults compose and configure the spaces, providing different degrees of use and privacy.Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGThe house is developed between the horizontal mediations and the two formal systems, closing towards one of its sides and opening towards the north, generating a containment and an interior landscape of its own.Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAGProject gallerySee allShow lessHidden Figures: The Historic Contributions of Black Architects in the United StatesInterviewsT-HOUSE New Balance Store / Schemata Architects + ondesign PartnersSelected Projects Share “COPY” “COPY” Save this picture!Cortesía de BAAG+ 21Curated by Clara Ott Share 2018 Rodney House / BAAGSave this projectSaveRodney House / BAAG ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/949636/rodney-house-baag Clipboardcenter_img Year:  CopyHouses•Villa Elisa, Argentina Houses Area:  120 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Argentina Rodney House / BAAG Projects CopyAbout this officeBAAGOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVilla ElisaOn InstagramOn FacebookBrick HousesArgentinaPublished on October 16, 2020Cite: “Rodney House / BAAG” [Casa Rodney / BAAG] 16 Oct 2020.

I am writing on behalf of the Center’s Director, Christian Smith.We at the Center recently received a planning grant from the John Templeton Foundation to conduct background research on the topic of generosity, toward the launch of a possible major RFP project next year to fund many studies on generosity. “Generosity” here includes, but is not limited to, charitable financial giving, volunteering of time and talents, and personal relational investments into others for the common good. We are interested in understanding the genesis, manifestations, and effects of generosity on both recipients and givers. We think you might be interested in our project, and we intend to get into contact with you again in the future, as our project develops and a possible RFP is announced.Meanwhile, one of the background tasks we are working on now is compiling a comprehensive contact list of researchers and organizations that are interested in different aspects of generosity. We are asking people who we know about, like yourself, to help us identify people and organizations that we do not already know about. We would greatly appreciate your help in providing to us any contact information of other researchers or organizations that you may know that are interested in generosity, as well as extant survey instruments or established survey measures relevant to this subject. See below for examples of survey measures, organizations, and researchers that are already in our database. If you know of any additional people, centers, organizations, or surveys that you think might be relevant to our project, please let me know about them. We appreciate your help very much.Warm regards,Peter MundeyUniversity of Notre DameGenerosity Project [email protected] 240-446-1914 Call for interest in research project on generosity and giving AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img From: Peter Mundey [mailto:[email protected]]Sent: Tue 07/08/2007 16:13To: Harris MESubject: Research Project on Generosity and GivingAlready got long list of survey measures, organisations and individual researchers.Dear Dr. Harris: Advertisement Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgProceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL Print Twitter NewsCrime & CourtLaw students hear of miscarriages of justiceBy Staff Reporter – March 19, 2014 694 Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSBirmingham SixfeaturedGerry ConlonGuilford FourPaddy Joe HillUniversity of Limerick Email WhatsApp Linkedincenter_img First Irish death from Coronavirus Shannondoc operating but only by appointment Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April No vaccines in Limerick yet Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Andrew [email protected] next generation of law makers have been warned that miscarriages of justice still exist.Gerry Conlon and Paddy Joe Hill served a combined total of 31 years in prison for convictions that were later deemed “unsafe and unsatisfactory” by courts of criminal appeal in the UK.This week, the pair were addressing law students from the University of Limerick and speaking of their time in prison and working through the British legal system as well as their vocation to fight for those still subject to what they say is MI5’s “dirty tricks”.In 1975, Gerry Conlon was one of four men jailed for life after a court convicted them of two pub bombings in Guilford where five people were killed.The same year, Paddy Joe Hill was sentenced to life in prison after a court convicted him of two pub bombings in Birmingham where 21 people were killed.The bombings were part of a campaign of terror by the Provisional IRA where pubs frequented by British Army personnel were targeted.Convictions against the Guilford Four and the Birmingham Six were later quashed but their papers have been held under the Secrets Act and can not be released until at least 2066.In his campaign, Gerry Conlon, who served 15 years in prison, says that lessons need to be learned to avoid miscarriages of justice and the law makers of the future need to be aware of this“Mistakes do happen but it is a vocation that you are taking on that you are going to be advocating on behalf of that could possibly be innocent, that could possibly befall the same situation that Paddy and myself have befallen.“It is the duty and representation to go in with a fair, open and honest mind, not to be desuaded by politics or by the press into having an assumption before you go to defend someone.Paddy Joseph Hill served 16 years and now lives in Scotland since his release, says that he has been advocating against miscarriages of justice since he came out of prison.“We seem to have a great number of miscarriages of justice in Britain. We were deliberately fitted up from day one and we were just used as scapegoats and pawn for the police, the judiciary and the Government just to quell public outcry.”Paddy said that some people emerge from prison and just get on with their lives and forget about what happened or forget about those left inside.“When I got out of prison, I made a promise to people that I would carry on fighting for them. Gerry made a promise to me and I have made a promise to others.“I said that the trend that I had seen in the UK, it meant that there was going to be a hell of a lot of more innocent people that were going to end up in prison. There’s more innocent people in the UK today then there’s ever been”, he warned.

first_imgThroughout the duration of the project Mammoet transported 239 items from the jetty to site, with a combined weight of 84,905t, and installed 154 items with a combined weight of 68,415t Mammoet transports world’s largest single train petroleum refinery. (Credit: Mammoet) Sourced globally and consisting of multiple shipments, these components were delivered to the purpose-built Dangote Quay Lekki in Lagos. They were then transported to the project site. Prior to installation, the components were stored temporarily on freshly paved Enviro-Mat; Mammoet’s innovative and sustainable solution for native soil improvement, which was deployed to provide the main crane hard stands.To optimize the construction process and schedule and ensure the highest levels of construction uptime, Mammoet has drawn on its diverse fleet of heavy lifting and transport equipment. This has included conventional trailers and trucks, SPMTs, plus mobile and crawler cranes ranging in capacity from 250t to 1,600t.In addition, Mammoet brought two of its largest super heavy lift ring cranes with lifting capacities up to 5,000t – the PTC 200 DS and PT 50 – to bring maximum efficiencies to the execution of the project. Their lifting capacity, combined with a long reach and a small footprint, enabled more efficient approaches to lifting and installing heavy and oversized components, such as a3,000t regenerator – the heaviest item ever transported over a public road in Africa and a 2,000t crude column – the largest crude column in the world.Throughout the duration of the project Mammoet transported 239 items from the jetty to site, with a combined weight of 84,905t, and installed 154 items with a combined weight of 68,415t.Over 100 Mammoet professionals worked on this project for around two years adhering to the strictest safety standards – ensuring transportation and installation activities were efficiently scheduled and safely executed. Precise planning and thorough coordination were crucial to minimize delays and additional costs, maximizing the project’s efficiency.During the project, Mammoet and its partner in Nigeria – Northridge Engineering, contributed to thelocal community by ensuring that the operations created value and opportunities by supporting local employment, training and encouraging local businesses to be part of the supply chain. 54 local employees were crucial to this work, covering a range of skills including SPMT operators, crane riggers and drivers. Mammoet also subcontracted work to 43 Nigerian businesses throughout its two years on site.Paul van Gelder, CEO Mammoet commented: “We are very honored that the Dangote Group entrusted us with the entire heavy lifting and transport scope for one of the most significant projects in Nigeria and the West Africa region.”“I am very proud of what our strong, driven team have achieved. They delivered an exceptional performance. This project proves our commitment and focus to realizing the most efficient and cost-effective approaches for our clients. Once again, we have demonstrated that Mammoet provides smarter, safer and stronger solutions for any heavy lifting or transport challenge, anywhere in the world.” he added.Dangote refinery is a 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) integrated refinery and petrochemical project under construction in the Lekki Free Zone near Lagos, Nigeria. It will be Africa’s biggest petroleum refinery and the world’s biggest single-train facility. Once onstream, the refinery will increase the country’s oil exports and reduce its reliance on imports of petroleum products, thereby boosting economic growth in Nigeria and generating thousands of jobs.
