The structure with a total surface of 32.500 m2 combines social housing, rental property, a residence for disabled people, offices and retail. The block is composed of five sections, each one designed by a different architect, following the MVRDV masterplan: Pierre Gautier, Manuelle Gautrand, ECDM and Erik van Egeraat. Landscape architects West 8 designed the public plaza. MVRDV designed the head section which advertises over the full façade the European integration by quoting the EU constitution. ‘Le Monolithe’ has been realized by ING Real Estate Development and Atemi.Save this picture!© MVRDVIn 2004, ING Real Estate Developers had invited a group of international architects to design the masterplan, for which MVRDV was chosen as winner. Based on this masterplan, each architect was asked to design a section which together form ‘Le Monolithe’. The urban superblock is a mixed-use development comprising a mix of social and rental housing, offices and underground parking. The block is characterised by a large interior court with a raised public space overlooking the city, the new marina and a park, in this way resembling the French classical ‘Grand Gallérie’. The block is divided into five sections, each one designed by a different architect in order to achieve diversity and architectural variety. MVRDV is responsible for the head section in the south at the waterfront. Each part is unique in material, composition and architectural expression. The project forms part of the urban regeneration project ‘Lyon Confluence’, a 150 hectare site located at the southern tip of Lyon’s Presqu’île, where the rivers Rhône and Saône merge.Save this picture!© MVRDVThe interiors of MVRDV’s south facing building are protected from the sun by means of aluminium shutters as a reference to traditional local architecture. Apartments inside Le Monolithe offer a great diversity in order to attract different groups of inhabitants making the block a reflection of Lyon’s population. Offices are divided into separate units of min. 500 m² which are accessed by three vertical circulation cores, providing individual access. Each unit allows for a flexible fit out, depending on the tenants’ needs and requirements. All spaces are naturally lit and ventilated.Save this picture!© MVRDVIn June 2005, when France and The Netherlands voted against the European Constitution, MVRDV decided to redesign the façade and integrate a reminder of the values, ideals and needs of the European Union. When all shutters are closed, the first article of the European Constitution can be read: “The Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, liberty, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail.” Save this picture!© MVRDVIt aims to advocate a possible ‘Yes’ for Europe in days of protectionism, accompanying the collective EU spirit of the gathered architects. The adjacent sections were designed by French and Dutch architects Pierre Gautier, Manuelle Gautrand, ECDM and Erik van Egeraat.

On the entrance of the house we have a hall that serves as a mezzanine overlooking the double ceiling living room with proximally 6,00m height and wood frame glass windows with a view looking at the swimming pool and the forest. In the lateral of the hall, the balcony outside is surrounded by large wooden bench, serving as a protection.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiIn the intermediate floor are the social areas: the living room and dining room, which join the outdoor kitchen, outdoor deck and infinity swimming pool. Downstairs is the intimate area with five suites. It is this strategy of reversing the usual array of social and intimate area that makes the rooms, even overlooking the sea, have the privacy afforded by the trees that are at that level.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe house can be called the balcony house with large glass panels that allow visual contact with the surrounding areas of the residence and the natural landscape of the region.

The purpose of this project was to design two adjacent houses with a view towards the Aegean and the Kolymphithres Bay in the island of Paros (in the Cyclades). The plot extends on an east-west axis. The views are towards the north and it’s intense north winds, which persist even during the summertime, and are known as “meltemia”. These winds can be ravaging, but equally beneficiary during the hot summer days.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© George MessaritakisThe houses are placed on an east – west axis on the eastern side of the plot so as to gain full perspective of the Aegean and the Kolymphithres Bay. An outdoor corridor defines their in-between space, while connecting the northern terraces and swimming pool area with the southern side of the dwellings, with it’s carefully dispersed olive trees. The houses develop on either side of the corridor, which acts like an almost-mirror plane within the composition. Each house is defined by a seemingly un-interrupted whitewashed wall which follows a meander-like path. Lower profile stone walls lay tucked in-between these two white ribbons, creating an open dialogue between the indoors and the outdoors. The result is a game of “hide and seek” among the inhabitant, the indoor spaces, the inner yards, the spacious terraces, the sky, the sea, the sun and the shade. This strict yet sensitive composition of walls, reminiscent of the cycladic archetypical wall, makes a statement within the rolling Parian landscape. The openings on the walls as well as the pergolas are carefully placed so as to protect from the intense southern sun and northern winds, while at the same time seizing the benefits of the sun, the wind, and the views.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisA serene closure is obtained through the landscape architecture: an artificial mound rich in native plants protects the eastern limit of the plot, and a series of trees defines the perimeter. Mulberry trees inhabit the inner yards.  Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!Axonometry 02Save this picture!© George MessaritakisIn summary, the principles of the composition are as follows:a. the reinvention of the archetypical cycladic wallb. the creative dialogue with the environment, the cycladic light, the meltemia, the building materials. A dialogue that creates spaces that are protected yet open, united yet fragmented. A dialogue that gives room for an interchangement of enclosed and open space, introversion and extroversion, light and shadow, smooth and harsh texture, views of white, natural stone, different shades of blue and the hews of the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!© George MessaritakisThe embodiment of these principles creates a habitat with a strong identity and a unique footprint on the landscape.

The commission is framed within the Programa de Crédito Argentino del Bicentenario (PRO.CRE.AR) housing credit program, for those families who do not have their own plot of land and are willing to have the family’s only residence. The project is located in Granadero Baigorria town, province of Santa Fe, Argentina. It sits on state land which used to belong to the National Railway System. It is an urban development of 3.3 hectares (81.5448 acres of land), bounded by the railway on one of its sides, and by an unconsolidated urban fabric on the other side, and framed by heavily tree-covered areas in the rest of the sides. The proposal considers the solution to one of the two sectors into which the piece of land is divided, and it offers buildings with ground plus 2 floors; ground plus 3 floors, and ground plus 7 floors; with a total of 105 houses and 8 business premises.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe Project acknowledges the issue of the impersonal style in housing complexes and the infinite repetition of dwellings of identical characteristics, opposed to the need of identity and acknowledgment of individuality. That is why, given the prejudice regarding multi-family dwelling complexes as having monotonous, homogeneous, and impersonal repeated patterns, and understanding that the perception and experience of diverse architectural scenery give the user a sense of belonging and the adoption of places, the proposal intends to correct that imminent need of uniqueness and identity.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!© Manuel CucurellFollowing this premise, one of the basic conditions of the design at the start of the project consists of the search of an organizing system of the different dwellings which may admit variations among them, without forgetting the search of an integral morphology that comprises the complexes as a whole. That is why, and without abandoning the basic strategy of the mass plan carried out by Agencia de Administración de Bienes del Estado (“State Goods Administration Agency”), an architectural project was launched for the development of an urban proposal which would allow us to go deeper into the hypothesis formulated, based on the program, orientations, views, green areas, interstitial spaces, systems of traffic paths and accesses.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe ground plus 2 floors, and the ground plus 3 floors prototypes adopt similar project strategies, by means of the separation of the vertical circulation and its incorporation to the building mass as empty space volume. In this way, there is not a lineal common circulation which may go across all of the residences, and in that way both facades will be directly facing outside, optimizing airflow. In addition, empty space volumes reaching the ground floor configure entries, enabling a visual and functional bond between the interior courtyards of the complex street, and optimizing the relationship between the building and its urban surroundings, which allows greater control of the users in terms of the pedestrianized area. This volumetric operation is developed from a typology of duplex houses which change direction from the social area to the sleeping area, which results in a series of communal terraces which serve as interchanges, going through the building and bringing in natural light into the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Manuel CucurellThe ground plus 7 floors building contributes in configuring an urban system of open block, and being located on both sides of the piece of land. In order to improve access conditions, we propose a phase shift of the original piece in the plan, taking its center as a section. In this way, the relationship between the building and the street is improved, the ground floor level of the sidewalks in the access area is widened as well as in the business premises. In turn, this break enables the units located in the center of the plan to be like corners, and in that way, there would be views in both facades. In the elevation, the phase shift of the original piece in the plan is repeated, and as a result, the opening of the premises to the street is improved, in that way, there is space on the highest floor for the elevator shafts and reserve tanks without them being identified in the volumetry of the building.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!Plans PB+2Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe building system which has been adopted consists of an independent reinforced concrete structure and closing of face brick. That is not only the most traditional and common method used in the region but it also identifies itself with the old railway stations where the predominance of stonework is a common feature, as it is a noble and long lasting material. In order to accentuate the gaps generated by vertical circulation, it has been decided to give them the same finishing as the internal premises, painted in white, in order to differentiate them from the brick enveloping. As the choice of the building system is a factor in the intended design, there is a search for a correspondence between the project decisions and such building method, so the structure which has been put forward consists of a regular grid which results in efficiently modulated prototypes, looking for construction rationality which will decrease waste and will allow the use of technologies which are present in the local area.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasAs from the resolution of the different housing typologies and including the application of the different variables considered, we obtain a fragment of the town where its inhabitants obtain not only a heterogeneous and dynamic urban atmosphere but also enjoy units with the same high desire to live in. The spatial quality is considered in the same way in all prototypes respecting the surface, dimensions of the business premises and the disposition of openings. Ultimately, the intention is to express an architecture which not only favors inhabitants but also the citizen in the offering of possible urban sceneries, understanding the own residential project as the building of urban landscape.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasProject gallerySee allShow lessA Bronze House on Nightingale / SPF: architectsSelected ProjectsGudrunstraße Apartments / BFA x KLKSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Granadero Baigorria, Santa Fe, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

To the students marching on March 24

first_imgParkland, Florida on February 15, 2018.You want a very simple thing, as basic as ABC: to be able to go to school without being gunned down.How did things get to such a horrible state that this should even be an issue?Don’t get demoralized when the politicians debate this to death. Just by coming out today and marching, you have taken a giant step forward.You are coming together and doing something about the problem, not just shrinking into yourselves out of sorrow and shock.You are embracing one another and coming up with ideas, plans, actions to shout out in one voice.You are creating a MOVEMENT. And by doing that, you are already changing the political landscape.Your diversity is your great strength. At a time when people of color, migrants, women, the LGBTQ community and vastly underpaid workers are being attacked by the billionaire president and his cronies, trying to pit us against each other, you are affirming the concept of SOLIDARITY.Your love of life and each other gives you the strength to push back against all who are trying to pull you down.Why are these terrible things happening in our schools?We live in dangerous times — the crumbling of an empire, really. An empire built from the beginning on stolen Native land and enslaved African people. The current $700 billion military budget is meant to shore up this dying empire. A huge promotion of police violence saturates our culture. This sends the message that guns and bombs will fix everything.Armed white supremacists and Nazis parade openly, and the billionaire president won’t condemn them. All this feeds into racist, anti-women, anti-gay fantasies acted upon by young men like Dylann Roof and Nikolas Cruz.This is not an issue of love versus hate. We can do both. We can love one another and hate all that is meant to divide us. We can love music and kindness and kidding around, and hate exploitation and bigotry. Che Guevara famously said: “The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love.” He also fought to make a socialist revolution.The very future of the world that will be yours, from the polar ice caps to the rising seas, is threatened by the chaotic, profit-driven system of capitalism.At such a time, can we afford to be less than revolutionaries? Think long about it, dear courageous young people, as you join the struggle to fix the horrible mess this system has made of the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

On May Day U.S. workers on the rise

first_imgSalt Lake City12345678


The year leading up to May Day 2019 in the U.S. saw increasing numbers of successful strikes and workers’ actions from coast to coast, involving retail, restaurant, tech industries, education workers and the gig economy.  In the Carolinas on May Day, thousands of teachers, wearing red shirts, walked out and shut down schools, converging on state capitals in Columbia, S.C., and Raleigh, N.C. They demanded an end to years of stagnant wages and lack of investment in schools.  The convergence of red-clad protesters led both right-wing and big business publications to ponder “Advocating for ‘our children’ or a ‘Marxist’ event”? Workers World welcomes these teachers’ protests, which are not isolated events. Workers struggles are gaining momentum around the country.In Boston, a vibrant march organized by the May1st Coalition wound through the working-class, mainly Latinx, communities of Everett, Chelsea and East Boston, with drumming and chants of “Si se puede” and “Whose streets? Our streets!” Community groups included Comite TPS Massachusetts, Chelsea Collaborative, La Comunidad and many others.Workers fixing a roof held up their tools in solidarity as marchers passed by with placards “No Walls in the Workers Struggle” and “Build Global Solidarity.” A woman in a Stop & Shop shirt said proudly, “I work at Stop & Shop; we just went on strike and won!” Garage mechanics, spattered with oil, held up their fists and smiled. School students stopped to take literature.The banner of the United Steelworkers Local 8751, representing Boston school bus drivers, defended the Bolivarian Revolution and former bus driver Venezuelan President Maduro. The New England Carpenters Union banner read, “Workers of the World Unite.” Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), fresh from their victorious Stop & Shop strike, were there, along with UNITE/HERE Local 26 representing victorious Harvard University and Marriott workers. The Boston Independent Drivers Guild, representing Uber/Lyft workers, marched alongside Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere (FIRE) and the International Workers Solidarity Network. After rallying at Harvard University, the Harvard TPS Coalition joined the march at East Boston where strong chants of “Hands off Venezuela” finished the day.   In New York City, demonstrators at the Trump Building, 40 Wall Street, denounced capitalist exploitation of immigrant workers. “No walls in the workers struggle/No hay muros en la lucha obrera!” was a common theme and “From Palestine to Mexico, border walls have got to go” was a popular chant. Ralliers emphasized continued solidarity with Venezuela after another failed U.S.-backed coup attempt on April 30.Speakers tackled issues including women-hating as a workers’ issue, dignity for sex workers and the crime of wage theft. They called for solidarity internationally with Venezuela, Palestine and Haiti and expressed continued opposition to ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement)  raids and deportations. Kicking off at City Hall in Philadelphia, marchers demanded Gov. Tom Wolf close the Berks Family Detention Center, a concentration camp with refugees and asylum-seekers outside Philadelphia. Abolish ICE and Juntos, an immigrant-led Latinx community organization, were rally organizers. Speakers called on District Attorney Larry Krasner to free Mumia Abu-Jamal and for an end to mass incarceration and police brutality. Mike Wilson, of Workers World Party and Philly REAL Justice, spoke at the statue of racist, fascist former Police Commissioner and Mayor Frank Rizzo, who targeted the city’s Black communities. Wilson contrasted the unified struggle to tear down Rizzo’s statue with the divide-and-conquer tactics of Trump’s war on migrants.At media-monopoly Comcast’s building, Fermin Morales from Comite Boricua Filadelfia-Camden highlighted the U.S. assault on Venezuela, declaring the need for a workers’ world, free from capitalism. Marchers then went to the site of prison contractor Aramark, demanding it end multiple contracts with ICE.In Cleveland marchers followed the route of the city’s historic, strongly socialist 1919 May Day protest. Chanting “No war on Venezuela, stop all attacks against immigrants,” participants called for a resurgence in the struggle for socialism. Hosted by the Committee of 100 Years, endorsements came from many left and socialist groups, including Cleveland State University’s Student Socialist Society, Democratic Socialists of America-Cleveland and Workers World Party.The Durham (N.C.) Workers Assembly initiated a march with short protests at the new police headquarters, City Hall and McDonald’s. Primary demands included no ICE raids, mass incarceration and police brutality. Speakers called for a $15/hour minimum wage and union rights for all, no restructuring of city worker jobs, no to racism and U.S. hands off Venezuela. There was support for Black, migrant, trans, queer and Indigenous people; and solidarity with women workers, especially in low-wage jobs and those facing sexual harassment. The day’s theme was: “No Walls in the Workers Struggle. As the Durham working class, we reclaim our city!”Endorsers included Raise Up-Fight for $15; United Electrical Workers (UE) Local 150, N.C. Public Service Workers Union; A. Philip Randolph Institute; Duke Grad Student Union; and Workers World Party.In Houston, members of Familias Inmigrantes y Estudientes en Lucha and the Central American Resource Center held huge banners on a bridge over the Southwest Freeway, the city’s busiest, on May Day. Slogans emphasized building bridges, not walls and solidarity with immigrants. The newly formed International Union of Painters and Allied brandished a large SOLIDARITY with a huge clenched fist. FIRE’s 6-foot sign, “HONK to support Refugees,” generated cacophony from drivers, lots of thumbs-up, pumped fists and peace signs.An evening rally at historic Guadalupe Plaza, sponsored by the Houston Socialist Movement, urged defeating not only Trump, but also capitalism, with worker solidarity. John “Bunchy” Crear, regional leader of the Black Panther Party Alumni Association, spoke on labor movement history, including Chicanx farmworkers under the leadership of Cesar Chavez and Black sleeping car porters under A. Philip Randolph, founder of that predominantly African-American labor union. Crear praised young Black activists pledged to carry out the Panthers’ revolutionary ideals. Consuelo Ramirez gave a spirited talk on struggles supported by the National Domestic Workers Alliance.  On May 4, demonstrators took over one lane of the busiest street in the immigrant community for a militant action. Chanting in English and Spanish, they then marched to Burnett Bayland Park for a rally chaired by youth from FIRE and Alianza Latina Internacional. Tania Siddiqi with Workers World Party urged support and inclusivity for struggles here and around the world, including issues of gender identity. Fittingly, speakers included a member of the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe, original inhabitants of Texas, who are still resisting attacks on their sovereignty such as the border wall, scheduled to cut through a sacred Indigenous and freed-slave cemetery at the U.S.-Mexico border.About 60 people came together to celebrate International Workers Day on May 4 in Salt Lake City, Utah, with speakers reflecting the multinational, multigender, multigenerational working class. Children with Rose Park Brown Berets spoke out against the exploitation of their parents’ labor and their families’ need to survive. Organizers with Teamsters, United Mine Workers of America and National Association of Letter Carriers encouraged workers to join unions and to fight for militancy in unions, as wins for workers are possible through rank-and-file union struggle.From the mic Workers World Party member Summer Smith called for revolutionary unity and support for migrant rights–with her daughter beside her in a red beret.The day was organized through the efforts of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization: Fight Back and the Rose Park Brown Berets. Other groups participating included Workers World Party, Party for Socialism and Liberation, Students for a Democratic Society, Utah Against Police Brutality, Civil Riot, Democratic Socialists of America, Red Lotus Collective, and United for Street Solidarity.At the Oakland, Calif., docks, the International Longshore Workers Union Local 10 and the Inland Boatmen’s Union shut down the port to begin a united May Day for worker and immigrant rights. At the port offices, the dockworkers rallied for all workers, including teachers’ demands for more public education funding and for im/migrants to live without fear of deportations or family separation. Then they headed to Oscar Grant Plaza to rally with the ILWU May Day Committee and Oakland Sin Fronteras, a coalition of immigrant rights’ organizations and activists.On the way, marchers stopped at Oakland’s Police Department, demanding an end to police terror against Black and Brown communities, and at the Oakland Unified School District, demanding justice for teachers and students. Finally, behind a powerful display of banners, hundreds marched to the Lake Merritt Amphitheater for a rally, closing this momentous day championing workers and immigrants.Over 200 people joined in the Portland, Ore., Festival of Resistance at Holladay Park.  High school senior Fowzia Ibrahim spoke on growing up as a Black Muslim woman. Mumbi of the All African People’s Revolutionary Party honored the African masses and those whose labor has been systematically exploited. Kimberly Sullivan spoke on the Clark College teachers’ strike in nearby Vancouver, Wash. Performers included the Aztec Dancers and Acchord, a transgender, nonbinary, gender-nonconforming a cappella group.In a second May Day protest, organized by #OccupyICEpdx, about 100 people marched to the ICE facility, chanting “ICE out of Portland,” “Protect children,” and “No KKK, no fascist USA, no cops,” before joining the Holladay Park event.Seattle’s March for Worker and Immigrant Rights was led by Aztec dancers, as 700 people from labor and activist groups rallied, many with “U.S. — Hands Off Venezuela” signs. First stop was the Chateau Apartments in the Black community to protest threatened eviction of the tenants. Next, marchers targeted Amazon-owned Whole Foods for low wages and anti-union policies. Demonstrators then went to Amazon’s enormous “campus” to expose the racist and anti-labor policies of its security contractor, Security Industry Specialists. During the march, Anakbayan Seattle announced a campaign against Boeing, a major area corporation, because 34,000 immigrants were deported through Seattle in 2018 using Boeing planes.
