In the history of architecture, there does not exist an architype so prevelent as the organization of living spaces around a patio. Unfolding over different civilizations, the typology of the patio house traces back to Asia in the year 3000 a.c., specifically in China and India. The Greeks, in the IV and V centuries,  contributed major developments to the evolution of the model and influenced the understanding of the mediterranian patio house introduced to the Americas with the arrival of the Spanish. The house presented uses the historical sediment as its inspirtation and redefines the model in a contemporary manner.Save this picture!First Floor Plan+ 22The house is located in the east region of the city of Santiago, where the valley meets the mountain range. The proyect is developed in a single plan, with the spaces organized around a central patio using crystal and quartz walls. During the day these walls are used to capture the sun light and illuminate the main hall of circulation; in the evening the walls are artificially lit and give the patio an illuminated glow.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaSave this picture!AxonometricTowards the south, the public facade closes, intensely hiding the events occuring inside. The interiors of the house are only revealed through the extension of the beams on the north facade and exterior sky roof.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaThe interiors of the different enclosures are defined by walls that do not reach the ceiling andover which the wood beams pass, creating a visual continuity throughout the house. Only the most outward enclosures, located on both sides of the plan and containing the bathrooms and other service program, connect to the roof slab and  emphasize the structural rigidity of the sky.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaThe beams on the north and south facades, which extend themselves into the interiors of the gardens, are supported by a series of discrete steel cables and give the pergola a weightlessness sensation. The sifted light, along with the benign climate in the given area, creates a priviledged site for domestic living.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaProject gallerySee allShow lessTiny Houses: Downsizing The American DreamArchitecture NewsCritical Round-Up: Tate Britain Renovation, Caruso St. JohnArchitecture News Share Photographs Patio House / Undurraga Devés Arquitectos CopyHouses•Las Condes, Chile “COPY” Houses CopyAbout this officeUndurraga Devés ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesResidentialTop100Las CondesChilePublished on November 29, 2013Cite: “Patio House / Undurraga Devés Arquitectos” 29 Nov 2013.

Demonizing China

first_imgThe new U.S. administration’s foreign policy appointees have quickly bared their teeth to People’s China. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s first remarks clarified that U.S.-China relations are both important and adversarial. That’s diplomat-speak meaning that U.S. imperialism is hostile to China, and Chinese successes have the U.S. ruling class terrified. Joe Biden’s regime plans to give no space to China on the seas or in the financial markets. It will resume the “pivot to Asia,” started under Barack Obama’s administration, and try to pretend the last four years were a strange aberration instead of a symptom of U.S. imperialist decline.While the twice-impeached former president and assorted Republican hacks have called Biden “soft on China,” even right-wing Fox News disagrees. Fox’s military analyst, retired Gen. Jack Keane, said Jan. 20 that a bipartisan anti-China policy prevails: “The fact is that the people around President Biden pretty much agree with Trump’s redefinition of the global security challenges that we’re facing.” After Blinken’s wink, the corporate media opened up a propaganda blitz against China as January ended. Media from the New York Times to NPR to Fox News pilloried China for (1) “authoritarian” handling of the COVID-19 crisis, (2)  alleged repression of internal minority populations and (3) its possessive attitude toward Hong Kong and Taiwan.We point out that the last two territories had been part of China for millennia, before imperialist wars and maneuvers snatched them away. Times opinion columnist Nicolas Kristof’s Jan. 30 piece epitomized the media blitz. Kristof has an undeserved reputation as a “progressive,” because he writes of violations of human rights and especially of women’s rights. The twist is that he often uses the sympathy created by his description to argue for U.S. military intervention — such as the 2011 U.S.-NATO overthrow of the Libyan government and the continued U.S. military occupation of Afghanistan — allegedly to protect women’s rights against the Taliban. Kristof omits the fact that from 1979-91, Washington armed every reactionary and misogynist Afghan counterrevolutionary — including those who murdered women school teachers under the then pro-socialist Afghan government and its Soviet allies. Kristof’s Jan. 30 column continued his pro-imperialist bent. He had the nerve to call China’s leader Xi Jinping “an overconfident, risk-taking bully who believes that the United States is in decline,” and he insisted that “Biden needs to manage Xi and reduce the risk of war without pulling his punches.” He urged U.S. strategists to take advantage of alleged differences within the Chinese Communist Party’s leadership.Kristof got one thing right: U.S. imperialism is in decline. And the one area where the U.S. is still number one is the production of overconfident, risk-taking bullies, as the last president and the recent attack on the Capitol demonstrated. That attack showed the world which ruling class and its political representatives have the sharpest and most irrational differences.The corporate media may have confidence that Biden’s appointees will carry out a coherent anti-China strategy. Workers World expects an aggressive and dangerous policy from Biden. We call on the U.S. population to confront the lies of the U.S. ruling class, its politicians and its media, and to mobilize to prevent any aggressive moves by U.S. imperialism against People’s China.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
