This is a residential house located in the densely populated periphery of Osaka, surrounded by small traditional commercial houses. By combining simple manipulations and traditional elements such as the earthen floor (Japanese Doma), we created a space that is simple but has dynamic nuances. Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThe interior space of this house is effectuated by the combination of a macro-manipulation and a micro-manipulation. On the one hand, in order to invoke a distinct sense of flow and continuity, we bent a rectangular volume twice according to the shape of the site.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThe skylights created by the three oppositely slanted roofs permit natural light from the south to percolate the entire interior space.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoOn the other hand, three openings serve as interfaces between the inside and the outside: the porch, the kitchen door and the courtyard door. Each of the openings faces the interior at the 45 degree angles. Those openings, along with the fixed furniture and the kitchen booth, creates a variety of spaces within a single volume. Save this picture!DiagramWe successfully completed a harmonious whole as a result of both the urban-scale macro-manipulation of the whole building and the interior-scale micro-manipulation of the partitioning walls and furniture. The interior space is filled with ephemeral folds of light and shadow that add depth and gradation to the otherwise homogeneous white space. Moving throughout the house, a cumulative sense of revelation and discovery develops as perspective of the space continually shifts.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoProject gallerySee allShow lessFirst 3D Printed House to Be Built In AmsterdamArchitecture NewsChinquihue Stadium / Cristian Fernandez ArquitectosSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Osaka, Japan House Twisted / Alphaville Architects “COPY” Architects: Alphaville Architects Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Projects House Twisted / Alphaville ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse Twisted / Alphaville Architects ArchDaily Save this picture!© Ichiro Sugioka+ 26 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAlphaville ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOsakaHousesJapanPublished on April 01, 2014Cite: “House Twisted / Alphaville Architects” 01 Apr 2014.

A charity has launched to support communities in the Greater London area by providing funding to established London charities that support underprivileged communities and individuals.

This two-week event will feature live music, cultural events and entertainment, all selected by the public using a live vote system. Due to launch in 2023 with the event dates and entertainment line up to be announced shortly, its goal is to raise £150M for charitable causes over a 10-year period.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. “We tasked ourselves with the mission to come up with a new innovative fundraising strategy that will not only benefit these charities but Greater London and its economy as well. This is where the concept of holding an annual large-scale festival was conceived. Not only it will promote London, its artists, businesses, showcase London’s history, arts and culture but also raise significant amount of money to fund these various critical and essential programmes throughout London.”“At its heart, Empower London Foundation seeks to break down barriers, champion inclusivity and help London residents realise their dreams. We are incredibly excited to launch and are committed to promoting positivity after what has been a dark period of worry and anxiety for many residents in the capital.” The Empower London Foundation has been founded by trustees with a diverse background in education, military, social services and business, all of whom have worked closely with communities in London in various capacities. “As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, funding for many services that Londoners rely on has been cut or significantly reduced. We recognise that it is now more important than ever before to support the charities that help to educate and empower the people and communities across the city most in need.last_img read more

Umpires: Deighton Butler, Gregory Brathwaite. SCOREBOARD Partnership KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, (CMC): Devon Thomas fashioned his second first-class hundred but his first in regional cricket, while left-arm spinner Nikita Miller then grabbed two wickets to inch towards 400 first-class wickets, as Jamaica Scorpions dominated Windward Islands Volcanoes on the second day of their ninth-round contest yesterday. The right-handed Thomas, an Antiguan who captained Leeward Islands Hurricanes up to last season, stroked an enterprising 122 to guide his new side up to 445 all out in their first innings at the Arnos Vale Stadium. Captain Paul Palmer struck a career-best 82 in a fabulous 178-run, sixth wicket partnership with Thomas, which enabled Scorpions to build on their overnight 284 for five. Left-arm seamer Delorn Johnson was the best bowler, with four for 84, while off-spinner and captain Liam Sebastien picked up three for 113, and leg-spinner Keron Cottoy, two for 128. In reply, Volcanoes were going strong at 138 for three, but lost two wickets late in the day to finish on 149 for five – still 296 runs behind going into day three. Sunil Ambris top-scored with a breezy 50 off 77 balls, with five fours and a six, rookie Jerlani Robinson chipped in with 31, while veteran opener Devon Smith struck 26. The 33-year-old Miller, who has played one Test and 46 One-Day Internationals, but has been overlooked by selectors for the last 12 months, knocked over Under-19 World Cup star Gidron Pope for 14 and then claimed Ambris, to move to 398 first-class wickets. Thomas owned the day, however, with a classy innings – only his second triple- figure score in seven years. Resuming the day on 24 not out, he counted 13 fours and two sixes in a knock that spanned 166 deliveries and just over 31/2 hours.last_img read more

Zuma appoints Marikana commission

first_img24 August 2012President Jacob Zuma has announced the composition and terms of reference of the judicial commission of inquiry into the Marikana tragedy, calling for cooperation from all parties involved so that the country can come to a full understanding of the causes behind the tragedy.Thirty-four people were killed in clashes with the police at the mining town of Marikana near Rustenburg last Thursday. Prior to this, 10 other people – including two police officers – were killed in nearly a week of fighting between rival worker factions.A number of memorial services took place around the country on Thursday as South Africa mourned those who lost their lives and came together to show support for the families of the deceased.Addressing journalists in Pretoria on Thursday, Zuma said the commission of inquiry would be headed by Judge Ian Farlam, a retired judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal, and include advocates Bantubonke Tokota and Pingla Hemraj.In investigating the events leading up to the tragedy, the commission has been tasked with looking into the conduct of mining company Lonmin, the South African Police Service (SAPS), and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU).Regarding Lonmin, the commission will investigate, in particular, whether the company:Exercised it best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have risen between itself and the labour force on one hand, and generally among its labour force on the other.Responded appropriately to the threat and outbreak of violence which occurred at its premises.By act or omission, created an environment which was conducive to the creation of tension, labour unrest, disunity among its employees or other harmful conduct.Employed sufficient safeguards and measures to ensure the safety of its employees, property and the prevention of the outbreak of violence between any parties.The commission will also examine Lonmin’s policies generally, including its procedure, practices and conduct relating to its employees and organised labour.“It will also investigate whether by act or omission, the company directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or damaged to persons or property,” Zuma said.Regarding the SAPS, the Commission will look at:The nature, extent and application of any standing orders, policy considerations, legislation or other considerations in dealing with the situation that gave rise to the incidents.The fact and circumstances that gave rise to the use of force and whether this was reasonable and justifiable in the circumstances.The role played by SAPS through its respective units, individually and collectively in dealing with the incident.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Regarding the NUM and AMCU, the Commission will look at:Whether the unions had exercised its best endeavours to resolve any disputes which may have arisen between itself and Lonmin or the other union or other parties.The extent to which the unions exercised effective control over its membership and those allied to it, in ensuring that their conduct was lawful and did not endanger the lives and property of other persons.Whether by act or omission, it directly or indirectly caused the loss of life or harm to persons or property.Zuma said the commission would also look into the role played by the Department of Mineral Resources, any other government department or agencies in relation to the incidents, and whether this was appropriate in the circumstances and consistent with their duties and obligations according to the law.“The Commission will also look into the conduct of individuals and loose groupings in fermenting and/or otherwise promoting a situation of conflict and confrontation which may have given rise to the tragic incident, whether directly or indirectly,” the President said.The commission will submit interim reports and recommendations to Zuma each month before the final report is presented.The commission’s work will be completed in four months, and within a month thereafter it will submit its final report to the President.“The commission shall, where appropriate, refer any matter for prosecution, further investigation or the convening of a separate inquiry to the appropriate law enforcement agency, government department or regulator regarding the conduct of a certain person or persons,” Zuma said.It will also have the necessary powers, including the power to enter and search premises, secure the attendance of witnesses and compel the production of documents.“We urge all affected parties to work with the commission so that the truth can be uncovered about what really happed in Marikana,” Zuma said.Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Sohail blames Afridi for World Cup semis loss

first_imgPakistan’s captain Shahid Afridi reacts after misfield by a fellow team member, unseen, during the Cricket World Cup semifinal match between Pakistan and India in Mohali on Wednesday.Former Pakistan captain Aamir Sohail has blamed Shahid Afridi’s “defensive captaincy” for the team’s World Cup semifinal loss to India, saying the skipper succumbed to pressure in the high-voltage game.”The match began in earnest in the 11th over and there is no room for sentiment in this game. It was pivotal for Afridi and his team to attack and take wickets but that didn’t happen,” Sohail said after the 29-run defeat to India.”Even while Sachin struggled the slips were removed and he snatched singles at will and chances went abegging which increased the pressure on the team,” he noted.He said even though Afridi was aware of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s struggle for form in the tournament, he didn’t attack him.”Once again we failed to go for the jugular. Saeed Ajmal was bamboozling Sachin and should have been kept on. However, Afridi thought otherwise,” he said.Pakistan’s former Test batsman Basit Ali also slammed the defensive approach.”In the past we never won against India because of a defensive approach we always attacked them and put them under pressure. In the semi-final it was the other way around,” Basit said.Basit criticised Waqar Younis for not adopting a good game plan.”It really amazes me that our management was unaware of when to utilise the batting powerplay even though Abdul Razzaq was promoted in the order and at one stage Misbah was batting with Afridi.”advertisementFormer Test leg-spinner Abdul Qadir also felt that the Pakistan team management needed to learn from the defeat and take measures to deal with the problem of inconsistent batting.No Pakistani batsman managed to get a hundred in the World Cup with the highest run-getter being Misbah-ul-Haq with his 248 runs from eight matches.”Overall the team’s performance can be termed as satisfactory as it reached the last four stage against the odds but we need to address the issue of inconsistent batting and the good thing is we have found couple of good young batsmen now,” Qadir noted.A disgruntled citizen in Lahore also filed a civil petition in the High court on Thursday alleging that the government of Pakistan and its functionaries had gifted the semi-final to India in a bid to improve relations with India.The petitioner prayed to the court in his application that the telephone conversations of Shahid Afridi, Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani and interior minister, Rehman Malik be investigated and their recordings produced in court to verify his claims.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
