Tammo Prinz Architects Propose Platonian Tower in Lima

first_img Projects CopyTammo Prinz’s competition entry for a new residential tower in Lima, Peru, proposes the use of platonian bodies to generate dramatic interior and exterior spaces.The concrete dodekaeder structure drives the form of the design whilst smaller cubic shapes are strategically placed within this to generate spaces for everyday living. The relationship between these two spatial qualities, of interior and exterior, reveals a series of unique spaces that can be used as an extension of the interior, or as a balcony-like outdoors area. Save this picture!© Tammo Prinz ArchitectsRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsSave this picture!DiagramsThe multi-storey proposal addresses a need for greater public space in Lima through the design of a large sunken public plaza. Generous voids in the bottom levels of the building allow natural light to pour into the multi-purpose space that includes a stepped ampitheatre.

Image Courtesy of Norm Li for MKPL/Turenscape TeamFrom the architect: North of the Tanjong Pagar Railway station, the Choa Chu Kang is set to become a development of housing units, honoring the heritage of the rail corridor. Its unique identity is safeguarded for ecological continuity by creating a 50 meter wide ‘Forest Reserve Line’. Advocating a ‘light touch’ and an ‘invisible hand’, the project seeks to achieve the delicate balance between natural landscape and landscaped nature. Seeding and planting of trees are phased strategically, to negotiate the balance between the built environment and designed nature, creating opportunities for symbiotic developments. The urban and natural elements of the landscape introduce new systems that will evolve over time, creating interim conditions that are each unique on its own.Save this picture!Elevated communal decks are shared spaces that are flexible to be programmed to suit the residents’ needs. . Image Courtesy of Norm Li for MKPL/Turenscape TeamA renewed recognition of the emotional, functional and experiential benefits of forest ecology allows a sustainable approach to passive environmental control to transform into a symbolic and literal green spine around which new neighborhoods are constructed. This social connector is complimented by extensive network of pedestrian and cycle path that ensures seamless connectivity between landscaped terrains and its immediate context.Save this picture!Learning from the natural stratification of the forest structure.

Residential towers linked by communal decks are elevated above an attractive waterfront space, surrounded by lush greenery.Save this picture!A communal deck stretches into the Linear Forest- the Rail Corridor that has been reforested, where the residents enjoys the rare privilege of living in a forest. . Image Courtesy of Norm Li for MKPL/Turenscape Team“The awarded proposal for Choa Chu Kang features a very strong and sensitive concept where the housing blocks are positioned to engage with the varying heights of ‘forest greens’ that follow the ascent of the building heights. It is a daring scheme that allows residents at all blocks and levels to enjoy the linear forest, with sky bridges for those on the higher floors and communal farming decks for the lower floors. The integration of Pang Sua Canal as part of the public realm also complements the mid to high rise ‘forest neighborhoods’ to create an extremely pleasant environment,” said one of the evaluation panel member, Raymond Woo, in a press release.Save this picture!Modular structural logic . Image Courtesy of MKPL ArchitectsEach housing block adopts a modular structural grid, to optimize buildability. The structural cores and structural columns and beams are standardized. The ‘service modules’, such as the kitchen and toilets for each unit are designed as modular units with opportunity for PPVC (pre-finished, precast volumetric construction) system to be implemented. The different typologies are designed based on the same building module which creates economies of scale and cost efficiency, hence ensuring its affordability while meeting different family and community needs.The proposal is currently on display at the Singapore URA Centre Atrium from November 9 to November 28, 2015. MKPL Architects will continue to work with URA to refine the concept proposals, also responding to the public feedback received.ArchitectsMKPL Architects, Turenscape InternationalLocationRail Corridor, SingaporeConsultantsPurcell Asia Pacific Ltd, Culture and Development Consultancy Ltd, KTP Consultants Pte Ltd, DHI Water & Environment (S) Pte Ltd, Arborculture Pte LtdExternal CriticsAZPML, Web StructuresArea16100.0 sqmProject Year2015PhotographsCourtesy of Norm Li for MKPL/Turenscape Team, Courtesy of MKPL ArchitectsLocationRail Corridor, SingaporeProject Year2015PhotographsCourtesy of Norm Li for MKPL/Turenscape Team, Courtesy of MKPL ArchitectsArea16100.0 m2News via Urban Redevelopment Authority.Project gallerySee allShow lessMuji Unveils Tiny, Pre-Fabricated “Huts” at Tokyo Design WeekArchitecture NewsLMH Headquarters / Dietmar Feichtinger ArchitectesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rail Corridor, SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

Beck Honored by American Seed Trade Association

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Beck Honored by American Seed Trade Association Previous articleISDA Names Interim Director of SoilsNext articleMarket Review Week Ending 6/28/2012 With Gary Wilhemi Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter The American Seed Trade Association presented Sonny Beck with its Honorary Member Award during the 129th Annual Convention in Maryland last week. Honorary Members have distinguished themselves in many ways, through leadership, vision and service.“Honorary Members truly represent the best of the best,” said Mike Gumina, ASTA chairman and vice president of production, safety, health and environment/risk management for Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business. “My choice this year is no exception.“Sonny has become a much-beloved living legend in this business. As president of Beck’s Superior Hybrids, his business philosophy emphasizes quality, service and the importance of agronomic research to the future well-being of the American farmer. Most importantly, Sonny is a farmer. He wears boots, blue jeans and a collared shirt every day to work.”Sonny would much rather be on a tractor than in a boardroom, Gumina said.Beck has been supportive of ASTA and a key player in the organization. He has served in numerous ways including Soybean Seed Division chair, Central Regional vice president, ASTA president from 2002-2003 and as First-the Seed Foundation Board of Directors member.He told HAT, “I was humbled by the honor because of all the people who have gone before me that have been in that class. But I’m just absolutely thrilled by it. I’ve enjoyed working with ASTA and other teammates there and other seed companies.”[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/06/Sonny-Beck-on-ASTA-honor.mp3|titles=Sonny Beck on ASTA honor]During the past 30 years, Beck and his family have conducted practical farm research studies in an effort to help farmers grow better crops. He was one of the first to establish long term no-till studies on corn and soybeans in Indiana, and his lifelong goal as a farmer is to be able to raise a “fence row” crop on all his fields.Although Beck’s Hybrids only markets in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky, they have become the sixth largest U.S. seed company and the largest family-owned retail seed business in the United States.Source: ASTAAudio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/06/Sonny-Beck-on-ASTA-honor.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Beck Honored by American Seed Trade Association By Andy Eubank – Jun 28, 2012 last_img read more

Privacy, an Emerging Issue for Farmers

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Privacy, an Emerging Issue for Farmers Previous articleRemembering Gary WilhelmiNext articleFarmers Need to Speak Up on CWA Proposal Gary Truitt Privacy, an Emerging Issue for Farmers Facebook Twitter Privacy is also an issue when it comes to the data about farming operations. A new section in the AFBF policy book is being developed to deal with data collected by farm equipment or by drones flying over farm fields.  The ownership of that data and who can profit from it is being discussed and debated by farmers.  AFBF has also taken legal action against the EPA for the release of confidential farmer information to activist groups in 2013. It is a delicate balance with which farmers and their families will need to deal. Privacy, an Emerging Issue for Farmers Villwock says consumers today want to know how their food is produced and that agriculture needs to be transparent, but not at the expense of farmers’ personal privacy, “We have a great story to tell about how we produce food or treat our animals. We like to have guests on our farms, but feel it is only common courtesy to have permission to be on our land.”center_img Privacy is becoming an issue for Indiana farmers, and farm groups are struggling with policies and practices that are appropriate. Privacy of data was discussed at the AFBF policy meeting in San Antonio on Tuesday. Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock says a farm property privacy bill is also moving through the Indiana General Assembly, “Trespass is one of the biggest legislative priorities for Indiana Farm Bureau this session.” Villwock told HAT that, in recent years, trespassing has become a more serious issue for Indiana famers, from pickup trucks driving across fields, to hunting without permission, to unauthorized photos and videotaping in livestock barns. He added state statutes need to be strengthened when it comes to trespassing on farmland. SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 14, 2014 last_img read more

Predators of press freedom use fake news as a censorship tool

first_imgNews United StatesCôte d’IvoireMadagascarBahrainItalyFranceTurkeyRussiaUzbekistanSomaliaBurundiSouth AfricaEgyptAmericasAfricaMiddle East – North Africa Europe – Central Asia Online freedoms PredatorsCitizen-journalistsInternet By targeting journalists in this manner, the US president ended a longstanding American tradition of promoting freedom of expression and sent a powerful message to media censors. The Washington Post called it “a gift to tyrants everywhere”. In January, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan endorsed Trump’s latest allegations that the CNN television network was guilty of broadcasting “fake news” in its report on ties between the US president and Russia.A warning to the media The Cambodian prime minister, Hun Sen, appeared to have taken his cue from Trump when he said of journalists in February: “Donald Trump understands that they are an anarchic group.”Two days earlier, his spokesman issued what he called a warning to foreign media outlets, threatening to “crush” those that endanger “peace and stability” and citing Trump’s treatment of the press as a justification for the warning. “The so-called fight against fake news has become a propaganda tool for the predators of press freedom,” said RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire. “Of course, it is more necessary than ever for Internet users to disentangle fact from fiction in the flow of information. However, the fight against fake news should be conducted by promoting free and independent journalism as a source of reliable and high-quality information.” Russia’s legal ban on the “dissemination of false information”The Russian telecoms regulator is preparing a draft decree designed purely and simply to block all content that contains false information. Before Trump’s statement, Russia, ranked 148th in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index, had already made it a requirement “not to disseminate false information” for bloggers to operate legally. The fight against “misleading information” has been a classic feature of post-Soviet Russia. The bill, imitated by several countries such as Uzbekistan, has enough leeway to allow for the broadest possible censorship. Since July 2016, content aggregators are required to verify the veracity of reports that they publish if they do not come from media outlets registered in Russia, and could face harsh penalties.The Russian Foreign Ministry has posted a new section on its official website dedicated to debunking fake anti-Russian news stories published by international news outlets.The TV news network Russia Today, funded by the Russian government, went so far as to set up its own fact-checking service in March. Other Russian state media outlets, such as the news agency RIA Novosti, have also tried to take advantage of the ill-defined phenomenon of “fake news” to launch their own “Media Wars” sections, intended to highlight Western lies and attacks on the Russian media. Punishing “fake news” denies journalists the right to make mistakes In sub-Sahara Africa, the concept of fake news is often abused to put pressure on journalists. Some countries’ laws provide for severe penalties without taking account of the intentions of journalists, who sometimes simply make mistakes. In any case, the penalty is disproportionate to the seriousness of the news report, even if it is wrong. In Côte d’Ivoire, for example, insulting the head of state or the dissemination of false news reports may be enough for a journalist to be taken into custody, despite the fact that such offences were meant to be decriminalised under the 2004 press law. Last month, six senior Ivorian journalists, including three newspaper publishers, were detained and questioned in Abidjan, accused of “publishing false news” about an army mutiny earlier in the month. In Madagascar, a new communications code has been strongly criticised by journalists for referring to the criminal code in its rulings on press offences, which could lead to the criminalisation of the profession. It provides for heavy fines for infringements ranging from insults to defamation, and refers to the dissemination of “false news”, an imprecise offence which removes the right of journalists to make mistakes. In Somalia, the Universal TV channel was suspended on 5 March for broadcasting false reports alleged to have threatened the stability and peace of the region after it referred to overseas trips by the president. Information control is key for those who want to impose their version of events The South African government plans to impose a system of online control of the media in order to meet the “challenge” of “fake news”. Growing hostility to the media probably has its roots in an unprecedented crisis in President Jacob Zuma’s African National Congress, whose leaders tend increasingly to silence dissident voices. In Burundi, the control of news and information is a key issue for the ruling authorities. The government fosters the idea that the media are partisan and that there is an international plot against the country. Since 2015, any report or statement is instantly interpreted as either for, or against, the government and the goal of the authorities is to impose its version of events as the only one. In Egypt, journalists are frequently accused of disseminating false information whenever they criticise the government, or report on sensitive issues that upset it. This widespread practice leads to self-censorship among journalists in their coverage of events for fear of joining the long list of colleagues who have been prosecuted and imprisoned. The investigative journalist Ismail Alexandrani, an expert on the Sinai Peninsula, has been held since his arrest at Hurghada airport on the Red Sea in November 2015 on charges of publishing false information and of membership of the Muslim Brotherhood. In Bahrain, the prominent citizen journalist and human rights campaigner, Nabeel Rajab, was accused last December of publishing false news about the kingdom of Bahrain in a cybercrime case. He could face up to two years’ imprisonment on this latest charge, which arises from interviews he gave in 2014 and 2015 to local and regional TV stations on human rights in Bahrain. Fake news used by French politicians The use of fake news to silence media critics is not the unique preserve of authoritarian or countries that are known for undermining press freedom. In France, the National Front, through its vice-president Florian Philippot, who has frequently categorised the work of journalists as “fake news”. During the programme “l’Emission Politique” on the TV station France 2 on 9 February, in which National Front leader Marine Le Pen took part, the party set up a “fake news alert team” which posted some 20 real-time alerts online “whenever members of the team believed that France 2 journalists put out fake news”. Presidential candidate François Fillon earlier this month accused TV news channels of falsely reporting that his wife has committed suicide, before admitting no such reports had been broadcast. In Italy, Beppe Grillo, the leader of the Five Star movement, accused Italian journalists of “manufacturing false news” designed to harm his party. He called for the creation of “a popular jury to determine the veracity of the news published”. The FNSI journalists’ union said it amounted to the “lynching of all journalists”. Five Star said journalists themselves were responsible for Italy’s low ranking in the World Press Freedom Index. The United Nations concerned at growth of fake news David Kaye, UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Organization of American States, and the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights issued a joint statement on 3 March expressing concern at the use of “fake news’ for government propaganda and to curb press freedom. “Criminal defamation laws are unduly restrictive and should be abolished,” the signatories said. “State actors should, in accordance with their domestic and international legal obligations and their public duties, take care to ensure that they disseminate reliable and trustworthy information.” Recep Tayyip Erdogan endorsed Trump’s latest allegations that the CNN television network was guilty of broadcasting “fake news” in its report on ties between the US president and Russia.

Pasadena Publisher Signs with Ovation TV for ‘Chronicles of Ara’ Series

first_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Business News Authors Joel Eisenberg and Stephen Hillard of Pasadena-based Incorgnito Publishing Press have signed a development deal with Ovation TV for the development and airing of a mini-series based on their “Chronicles of Ara” series.The eight-hour mini-series will be based on the first two novels of the duo’s eight volume series, with an option to explore the remaining books for a possible ongoing series and further spinoffs.The books center on Ara, a muse who inspires all of art and invention, but who is corrupted upon a tragic loss. Using parallel storylines, the characters include some of history’s more renowned “darker authors” – J.R.R. Tolkien, Mary Shelley, Lewis Carroll, H.G. Wells, Edgar Allan Poe – as they write their greatest creations.“’The Chronicles of Ara’ is a fantastically imaginative series that explores the origins and repercussions of artistic creation,” said Scoot Woodward, Executive Vice President of programming and production at Ovation TV. “Its theme, of course, is perfectly suited for the only television network dedicated to the arts, but the story itself is so engaging and visual in its telling that it seems destined for a series.”“The end of the world begins when man is betrayed by his greatest creation: his art,” Eisenberg says. “What better outlet than Ovation, a network devoted to the arts and culture, to explore this concept?”Hillard adds that “we run with the concept of dangerous art — all those video games, novels, music, lyrics and so on that parents and teachers say are bad for you — and we respond, ‘Okay, we agree.
