Among these is the very concept of having a porch that is an extension of the interior space. In addition, the massing of a proportionally tall house speaks more of isolation than of the construct of meaningful social spaces through a series of houses enclosing the street. The PorchDog addresses these challenges while complying with new environmental, structural, and FEMA regulations.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyThe Porchdog house is raised above the ground and essentially open at the ground level, but still incorporates a stoop that serves as a street level porch. The only other ground-level elements are an entry stair, enclosed storage volume, a parking area and a stair descending from the rear deck. The concrete block storage volume is separated from the entry stair to facilitate a transparent reading of the ground plane and developed landscape elements in the rear yard.

Primary materials include all steel construction with exterior metal cladding, and bamboo flooring at the interior. Operable perforated metal shutters provide light control and storm security for aluminum framed window walls at East and West elevations.Save this picture!exploded axonProject gallerySee allShow lessPlinthos / mab architectureArticlesHydrogen House / !ndie ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!© Timothy Hursley+ 22 Share “COPY” Architects: Marlon Blackwell Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Porchdog House / Marlon Blackwell Architect CopyAbout this officeMarlon Blackwell ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBiloxiHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 06, 2011Cite: “Porchdog House / Marlon Blackwell Architect” 06 Feb 2011.

Designed to accommodate up to 40,000 visitors per month, this new 120,000-volume library for the City of Phoenix is located adjacent to an existing lake in a public park. Phoenix, now the sixth largest American city, prides itself on providing exceptionally designed libraries to foster communities with information resources and works of the imagination. Completed January 2008, the Cesar Chavez Library is one of four new regional libraries to be constructed for the City. Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanLocated within one of the fastest growing areas of Phoenix, the Village of Laveen, and due to the density of nearby housing, the park becomes the backyard for the community, and in the same sense, the library was designed to be its living room. An interior place for interaction of families and friends, as well as a space for individual family members to grow into their personal roles within family and society. There are comfortable, specially accommodated interactive and learning areas for children, teens and adults to enjoy reading and other areas of personal growth and exploration.Library Amenities Save this picture!© Bill Timmerman140,000 volumes (books, CD’s, DVD’s, periodicals) Estimated 750,000 circulating items/year Public computers with internet access Wireless internet access Computer training lab Automated self-checkout service Children’s Area with intimate story room, interactive displays, dedicated computer stations, and homework help area Teen Center, christened “R3” for “Read Relax Rejuvenate” by students at the adjacent local high school, with high-tech amenities such as MP3 listening stations, a plasma-screen TV for DVD viewing in a semi-enclosed lounge, and dedicated computer stations. 75-seat community meeting room Environmental Design Features Save this picture!© Henry TomSite Integration Save this picture!© Bill TimmermanReflecting the geometry of the adjacent lake, the arced form of the library is pushed into an existing earth mound, quietly integrating it into the public parkscape. The earth provides thermal mass against the building (moderating building temperature, minimizing heating and cooling energy use) in addition to privacy and a barrier from noise emanating from major arterial traffic. Orientation Through appropriate orientation, glazing at the north and south of the building allows natural daylight to fill interior space. The west elevation is designed with no windows to mitigate direct solar heat gain, reducing demand on the mechanical system. Deep overhangs over all windows protect from the harsh desert summer sun. Shade/Transition Overhangs extend the usability of outdoor spaces by providing shade over seating and gathering areas as well as a zone of thermal and visual transition from the hot, bright exterior to interior space. Site paving is kept to a minimum and shaded by major building overhangs and native Palo Verde, reducing the heat island effect. Natural Daylighting Daylighting in public and staff areas minimizes the use of conventional lighting and provides occupants with a connection to the surrounding outdoors. Tempered Microclimate A large overhang coupled with reuse of building exhaust air provides a tempered microclimate in the outdoor reading patio. Adjustable spot diffusers allow users to fine-tune their individual environment increasing the patio’s comfort and usability in Phoenix’s desert climate. Materials/Building Life Cycle Concrete masonry, steel and aluminum were selected for their clean appearance, durability, low maintenance, ability to be recycled and local availability. These materials coupled with the open plan design allows for long-term flexibility and adaptability over time, increasing the service life of the project. Minimal use of interior partitions in public areas allows for easy modifications to shelving and furnishing layouts as the Library grows and changes to accommodate future needs. Total post-consumer or post-industrial recycled content exceeds 10%. Water Harvesting All rainwater from the 37,000 sf roof is collected and stored in the adjacent lake for use in park and landscape irrigation. This quantity balances the total water used for toilet flushing during the year. Condensate from mechanical units is also harvested and used for landscape irrigation. Cooling/Heating System The high-efficiency mechanical system is controlled by an automated energy management system (EMS) and contains no CFC-refrigerants. All units of the mechanical system are equiped with economizers that take advantage of the cool desert mornings and winters to conserve electricity. In addition to recycling, carpooling and bicycling programs, the Library will feature an environmental education program that demonstrates how the design of the library responds to its environment. The Cesar Chavez Library has been selected from a nationwide search as one of ten American Landmark Libraries by Library Journal, the most respected publication covering the library field, and is one of the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment’s (COTE) Top Ten Green Projects for 2008, a national award given annually to projects that exemplify sustainable design and construction. The project is LEED Silver certified.Project gallerySee allShow lessSteven Holl Architects’ Horizontal Skyscraper Wins American Architecture AwardArticlesMiami University Fall ‘11 Architecture and Interior Design Lecture SeriesArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/163202/cesar-chavez-library-line-and-space Clipboard CopyHouses•Laveen, United States CopyAbout this officeLine and SpaceOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMuseums and LibrariesSustainabilityLaveenUnited StatesPublished on August 26, 2011Cite: “Cesar Chavez Library / Line and Space” 26 Aug 2011.

We felt it essential that the house created a presence that connected both to the landscape and Bulgarian traditions, rather than just creating a mute abstract object standing as something ‘other’ in the landscape. And this included reducing the impact of the house on the surrounding environment as far as possible.” Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Gill ArchitectsThe end result is a house that celebrates the ordinary activities of Bulgarian life; a fountain in the centre of the principal space offers refreshment after the climb up the hill, a gargoyle drains water from the roof, and a table built into the fabric of the house offers dining with unique views over the lake. A sense of sleeping in a warm burrow is created internally. In the above-ground volume of the house the main fireplace is deliberately oversized to emphasise its importance on evenings when the temperature drops way below zero, and timber lined walls evoke visual warmth. In the underground part of the house the banking of the earth is visible through a large window as the floor gently ramps down beside it.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSalotto Urbano Proposal / Michela Romano, Emanuela Ortolani, Federica Spinaci, Eleon…Unbuilt ProjectIn Residence: Claudio SilvestrinArticles Share Projects “COPY” 2012 CopySave this picture!Courtesy of Simon Gill ArchitectsRecommended ProductsLightsLouis PoulsenLamps – AJ CollectionDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcDoorsC.R.

(FIR No. 59/2020)Narwal is currently lodged in Tihar prison as an accused under three FIRs that have been registered against her for allegedly fuelling the riots.On March 23, Narwal was arrested in connection with a case filed against certain Anti-CAA protesters in Jaffrabad. However, she was immediately released on bail.On account of her being released on bail, another FIR was registered against for allegedly instigating the Delhi riots and she has been in judicial custody ever since.Narwal has been accused of various offences under the Indian Penal Code as well as the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. The cases against her and another member of Pinjra Tod Devangana Kalita, are being investigated by the Crime Branch of the Delhi Police.Earlier, Narwal had to move the Delhi High Court for seeking legal interviews with her lawyer through video conferencing and access to books and telephonic calls.Natasha Narwal in the present case was represented by Advocate Adit S Pujari.Click here to download the orderRead Order Next Story
Evgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(LOS ANGELES) — The death of a man at the home of a prominent Democratic political donor is raising questions and scrutiny about an earlier death at his home.Both deaths occurred at the West Hollywood, California, home of Ed Buck, who has donated to a number of Democratic politicians over the years.Now investigators are looking at both the most recent death, which was reported on Monday, as well as the overdose death of another man at the same residence in July 2017.The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call at 1:05 a.m. Monday that a person not breathing. Emergency responders performed CPR at the scene, they said in a statement released on Monday by the sheriff’s office, but the man — whose identity has not been publicly released — was declared dead at the scene.The sheriff’s office said that the cause of death in this case has yet to be determined.The death has prompted another look at the July 27, 2017, death of Gemmel Moore, who the sheriff’s department reports was found to have overdosed at the home of Buck.“Mr. Edward Buck was present during both incidents,” the sheriff’s department said in their statement, adding that “investigators are conducting a thorough investigation, which includes follow-up interviews and a secondary review of the July 27, 2017 incident.”The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office released a statement saying that they have “been in communication with detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department” but declined to comment further “due to the pending investigation.”Buck’s attorney Seymour Amster did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment, but he spoke to ABC station KABC-TV.“This is not a situation where Mr. Buck has caused the death. This is a situation where Mr. Buck has had longtime friends who unfortunately do not handle their life well,” Amster told KABC.Amster told the Los Angeles Times that Buck was not arrested and is cooperating with the investigation.“From what I know, it was an old friend who died of an accidental overdose, and unfortunately, we believe that the substance was ingested at some place other than the apartment,” Amster told the Los Angeles Times.“The person came over intoxicated,” he told the newspaper.Protesters gathered at Buck’s house Monday night demanding answers, and action.“It’s clear that there’s a pattern and a practice of Ed Buck to prey on vulnerable, young black gay men who are homeless, who are HIV positive, who he can manipulate with his money, and they end up dead inside his house,” activist Jasmyne Cannick told KABC-TV.The Los Angeles Times obtained the Los Angeles Coroner’s report relating to the death of Moore,which stated that the man was found naked on a mattress in the living room and he had died of an accidental methamphetamine overdose.Buck has an extensive history of donating to Democratic politicians.Buck donated a total of $2,950 to Clinton, as well as donating thousands to California Rep. Ted Lieu and then-Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who was just sworn into as a senator for Arizona.The Arizona Republic reported that in March 2018 Sinema donated $33,800 to charity in an effort to cut her ties to Buck.Lieu announced on Tuesday night that he was donating the amount he has received from Buck through the years to five different organizations focused on racial civil rights and gay rights advocacy.“I am deeply disturbed by the latest revelations of a second death by overdose at the home of Ed Buck,” Lieu said in the statement. “While we await the results of the law enforcement investigation, I am going to donate the contributions I have received from Mr. Buck.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Every penny of profit generated at Costa coffee stores on 14 June is to be donated to coffee-growing regions to help with the provision of school buildings, clean water and other facilities.The funds will be channelled through the Costa Foundation, which was set up in 2006 so the company could “give something back to the communities within the countries from which we source our coffee beans”.In 2007-08, the foundation is building and maintaining schools within four communities in Colombia, Ethiopia and Uganda. “This is already making a big difference in regions where children have a three-hour walk to school, or have no access to clean water,” the company said.
