Located in San Miguel de Allende (Mexico), Casa Shoemaker is a vacation home built on top of a pronounced semi-arid slope; this last element served as the basis for the creative development of the project and helps to achieve a balanced vision between low cost and functionality. Our objective was to take advantage of the site’s conditions and climate from the region, solving the project by two distinct volumetric structures.Save this picture!© César BelioSave this picture!Basement planSave this picture!© César BelioThe first volume is presented as an exposed pure-concrete foundation that supports the structure and on the other hand, achieves the budget objective of using low-cost materials summed to minimize future maintenance requirements.  Save this picture!© César BelioSave this picture!1st floor planSave this picture!© César BelioIn terms of materials, the project is defined by a combination of exposed concrete represented in various forms, giving the buildings a pure, elegant, and sober appearance. The material palette allows colors and textures to merge with the natural landscape, its context, and surroundings. The construction becomes one with the vegetation and the sky. Raw concrete allowed us to project on its textures and shades imposing a solid character to the home, merging but at the same time differentiating and contrasting both levels naturally.  Save this picture!© César BelioThe entrance is located on the upper floor. The user is received by a framed visual ending point directed to the south; a frame that was prioritized in design and structure to give a welcoming feeling as you enter the building. Inside, the raw materials and its neutral tones are permanently leaving greater visibility to the outside views and its natural surroundings. One of the main objectives of this project was to give the household a sense of belonging by creating a tribute and link to its family origins. The artistic elements and furniture designed by Don Shoemaker blend in perfect harmony with the context of the construction, where the sling chairs by Señal© factory stand out with honor and pride.  Save this picture!© César BelioSave this picture!© César BelioThe architectural project remarks on the functional differences and characteristics between both sets of floors. One area includes the intimate family social area whilst the other provides the recreational and visitor areas. The main structure is a rectangle that separates the main bedroom and the living area that is compound into free space, blended with a living room, dining room, and kitchen.Save this picture!© César BelioAs we move down to the basement, the exposed concrete base is discovered. From which an elegant green tree emerges from the ground generating a contrast of colors and shadows allowing this space to give character and granting the tree a protagonist position within the house; it may be seen from any position and view.  On the lower floor, there is a flexible space joined by two paths. One is a spiral staircase that leads to an open hallway connecting to the guest bedroom and bathroom. The other is presented by a concrete staircase starting in the upper structure and serving as a communication path to the central courtyard; this element with cantilevered steps is one of the most interesting visual ending points inside the building.  Save this picture!© César BelioSave this picture!Axonometric zoomSave this picture!© César BelioA close-by water body and some training tracks generate natural framed landscapes that are in constant change; landscapes gently submitted to the flow of the sunlight as the day passes as well as the season.  This is achieved by the floor-to-ceiling windows that appear horizontally, protected by a set of lattices used to reduce sunlight.  These blocking elements allow the windows to be open and naturally ventilate the interior spaces controlling the temperature inside the home.Save this picture!© César BelioProject gallerySee allShow lessHimalesque / ARCHIUMSelected ProjectsDGB Apartments / Estudio MMXSelected Projects Share Shoemaker House / Jaime Juárez R.

Poet and journalist Abdallah Al-Ryami jailed for criticising human rights violations

Amendment of the press laws, which allow the authorities to exercise systematic control of all means of expression, is also necessary, Reporters Without Borders said.Al Ryami had been harassed by the authorities ever since he was invited to take part in a televised debate about democratic reforms in July 2004, and voiced doubt about the government’s readiness to undertake real democratic reforms. The authorities immediately gave verbal instructions to newspaper editors and the state radio and TV broadcaster’s executives forbidding them to interview Al Ryami or even mention his name or his works.A published poet and playwright, Al-Ryami often used to take part in arts and culture programmes on Omani television. Since he spoke out on Al-Alam, his TV programmes had been withdrawn but he continued to write for various websites such as www.kikah.com, an independent online magazine dedicated to arts and culture.

Significant Tenant Interest In Purchasing State Route 710 Homes Reported

first_imgGovernment Significant Tenant Interest In Purchasing State Route 710 Homes Reported State Agencies Provide Paths to Homeownership Published on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 | 3:29 pm Some tenants along the formerly proposed State Route 710-North corridor moved closer to home ownership today as the first deadline closed in the Affordable Sales Program.The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) collaborated with sister agencies to design the Program, which returns state-owned property to the communities of Pasadena, South Pasadena and Los Angeles and allows tenants the opportunity to become homeowners.Caltrans said in a press release that it received nearly 90 responses on the 42 properties for sale, and the Department is currently reviewing submittals for eligibility.“This is good news not only for these individuals who may have their first opportunity at affordable home ownership, but for the entire community,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.Caltrans notified the potential buyers last December that they may be eligible to purchase the property they were living in, with low and moderate income tenants given first priority under the law known as the Roberti Bill.The Affordable Sales Program further allows Housing Related Entities to purchase should tenants not wish to buy the property themselves. Housing entities must either rent or sell first to current residents, regardless of income. Any equity gained upon subsequent sales returns to an Affordable Housing Trust Account for purposes of expanding affordable housing in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra and La Cañada-Flintridge.These first 42 properties are among 460 parcels currently owned by Caltrans, that were once purchased for the State Route 710 corridor extension project.“We are pleased to be able to provide and expand affordable housing opportunities for this community,” said Caltrans District 7 Director Carrie Bowen.Caltrans has contracted with Veterans Realty Group, a real estate consulting company, to facilitate the transactions and guide occupants through the purchase process. In January the consultant held homebuyer education workshops for occupants in Phase 1, and have subsequently met with every one of the occupied to walk them through their options. A special mortgage product has been established by the California Housing Finance Agency to assist lower income tenants purchase at affordable prices and gain limited appreciation.The first phase of sales will take approximately one year to complete. The remaining properties are anticipated to begin sales in the second phase beginning in late 2017.The California Transportation Commission must approve sales of state owned property.

With the five kiosks, the students were able to learn about the different regions of the state. I’m sure that many of them will go back when they can spend more time at the arts center.

East Coast to see snow, ice, flash flooding and possible tornado from winter storm

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The storm that left parts of the South under 15 inches of snow and a shield of ice this week is now moving into the East Coast.The highest snowfall total this week was in Arkansas, where up to 15 inches of snow fell. Little Rock actually saw a record 11.8 inches on Wednesday. At the same time, half a foot of snow fell from Oklahoma to Tennessee, North Alabama and Mississippi.But on Thursday morning, the storm is making its way into the East Coast, and could bring extreme weather from Florida to Massachusetts.Also on Thursday, heavy snow will be moving through the Northeast, from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, New York City and, eventually, Boston.To the South, an icy mix of freezing rain and sleet is expected from Virginia to North Carolina.There is also a flash flooding and tornado threat from Florida to North Carolina.On Friday morning, snow will continue from Philadelphia to New York City and Boston, and an icy mix is expected from Washington, D.C., to Virginia and North Carolina.Washington, D.C., will likely see 2 to 4 inches of snow, Philadelphia 6 to 8, New York City 5 to 9 and Boston 6 to 8.While the cold weather will continue in some states, others will see warmer temperatures by the weekend.A nice warm-up is expected in Houston Sunday, where temperatures are set to climb into the 60s.Further north, from Kansas City to Chicago and Minneapolis, temperatures are expected to reach above freezing for the first time in weeks.Winter weather alerts have stretched all the way to Texas, where a separate disturbance is bringing additional ice and snow on Thursday.Galveston Mayor Craig Brown told ABC News’ Good Morning America Thursday morning that they are still dealing with burst pipes and are having to bring in more water. At the same time, he said, many people remain without power.Brown added, “90% of our entire population was cut off of the power for about two days.” Due to the pipe bursts, the mayor said their hospital “ran dangerously low on water.” Now that they’ve been able to fill up the tanks again, however, they’re back up and running. When asked what the city needs, Brown said: “We need to get our power up. We need to turn water off to all the homes where pipes have burst and draining the system we’re working with citizens on that.”He said people are also dealing with lack of food and water: “The human suffering though that is occurring from this is very very concerning.” While the city has dealt with power outages and pipe bursts before due to hurricanes, Brown said: “We have a history of recovery, but this is worse than a hurricane. In a hurricane you can go to the mainland and get away from this. In this particular situation, no matter where you go in Texas you still have a concern that is similar to what we have here.” Brown said he sent a letter to the state’s governor requesting an investigation of the city’s electrical system. He also said that while they are getting supplies from the government, it hasn’t been entirely efficient.“The entire state seems to have some form of paralysis with this, and we’re getting supplies but not as quickly as we need,” Brown said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
