This façade is surrounded by plants and nature, which make it stand out and make it a pleasant space- this makes it a place where you can spend most of the time.

Save this picture!© Juan SolanoAlthough this project has many different languages, themes and spaces, we managed a way that it harmonizes, and has this lightness which is accomplished by using big glass parts. This way it integrates the environment, where many different elements can become one. Save this picture!© Juan SolanoLightning also played a big role in the project, as it helps this lightness, and at the same time it can be used as a guide in setting paths to walk around the house. This allows the user to have different ways to travel the house, be it by the main entrance and the interiors of the house, or by the stairs to arrive at the outer part where the garden is.  Project gallerySee allShow lessVIDEO: Inspired by Archigram, A Humanoid Walking CityVideosPresido Trust Rejects Shortlisted Proposals, Calls Off CompetitionArchitecture News Share House on the Hill / Jose Orrego “COPY” Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses 2013 CopySave this picture!Section D-DRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornText description provided by the architects. This project was very promising, its location was in an area where the view was beautiful, it stood on a hill and the slanted terrain gave many possibilities to explore ways of doing a unique residential building and at the same time accomplish the household and social functions.  Being in a high place made the main rooms of the house to face the pleasant view. photographs:  Juan SolanoPhotographs:  Juan Solano Ojasi + 25 Share Photographs Year:  Area:  950 m² Area:  950 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

A home fit for a king

first_imgBrian Farrell has been obsessed with peregrine falcons since he was a boy. In 1978, as a University of Vermont undergrad, he spent a summer on Owl’s Head in New Hampshire, raising and releasing five peregrine chicks hatched by Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology.On Tuesday, 37 years later, he was on hand as Massachusetts wildlife biologists took a similarly important step in their reintroduction — this time on Harvard’s campus.“They’re the fastest creatures that ever lived, and range all over the world,” said Farrell, a professor of organismic and evolutionary biology, curator in the Museum of Comparative Zoology, and director of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies. “They’re masters. You can see they own the air. Other birds fly, but they seem to know they’re kings.”Farrell, accompanied by Jeremiah Trimble, a curatorial associate in ornithology at the museum and building manager Raymond Traietti, was at Memorial Hall on Tuesday when Thomas French, assistant director of the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, and state wildlife biologist David Paulson installed a nest box high on the building’s tower in hopes that a nesting pair will one day make it their home.The falcons, which can dive at speeds greater than 200 mph, are on the rebound after their numbers plummeted decades ago due to widespread use of the pesticide DDT. The state still lists them as threatened.The last time peregrine falcons nested successfully at Harvard was in 1955, Farrell said. A clutch of falcon eggs discovered by Traietti last year at Memorial Hall failed, probably due to weather. The addition of a nest box with gravel should help to attract the birds next spring — this year’s nesting season is too advanced — and also increase the chances of healthy fledglings, French said.“This is an investment for next year or the year after that.”Tom French (top) and David Paulson are pictured on the Memorial Hall tower hoisting tools to help place the nesting box in place for future falcons. Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerNest boxes are important, Farrell said, because in nature falcon nests are built on cliffs, where the birds scratch out a hollow in dirt or gravel. Buildings are sufficiently cliff-like in their vantage point, but eggs laid on bare concrete or other roofing material tend to roll around and are hard for the parents to keep warm.Though Harvard Square is already home to red-tailed hawks, a conflict with peregrines is unlikely, Farrell said. The hawks feed mainly on squirrels, while the falcons ambush other birds in flight, stunning them at high speed before grabbing them as they fall through the air.French said the Boston region is the densest nesting area for the falcons north of New York City. Statewide, there are close to 30 nests, and the population is increasing rapidly.Welcoming the falcons to campus would be cause for celebration, said Farrell, and not just for biology students who wouldn’t have to leave home to study one of the world’s most fascinating predators.“It shows that a symbol of the wildest America — the peregrine falcon — which was extinct in the East, is able to nest here on campus, an urban site. I think it’s inevitable. They’ll be back.”last_img read more

Sumner County teams go on the road; big games for Belle Plaine and A&A

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Week #4 features a road well traveled for Sumner County teams. Only South Haven is at home this week.Cedar Vale/Dexter (1-2) at South Haven (1-2). Both teams looking to get back to .500. The Spartans lost to West Elk 54-8 last week. South Haven is still smarting from the lost to Udall 66-18. Sumner Newscow will be at the scene to cover this game.Argonia-Attica (2-1) at South Barber (3-0). This one will be a good one. South Barber has dismantled its first three opponents by more than 45 points. Argonia-Attica, which got back on track last week against Flinthills, hopes to stop the Chieftains, who outscored Burrton 60-0 last weekend.Flinthills (0-3) at Caldwell (3-0). Not sure if this game will make it to half time.Oxford (1-2) at Stafford (1-2). Stafford is somewhere in the middle of Great Bend, Pratt and Hutchinson. Not sure these two teams have ever met, but the Oxford players will see plenty of bus time.Conway Springs (3-0) at Medicine Lodge (0-3). The Cardinals should have their way against the Indians who lost to Douglass – the same team Conway Springs beat 47-6.Belle Plaine (0-3) at Northeast Arma (0-3). Could be a big opportunity for Belle Plaine to break its long losing streak. The Vikings lost to Liberal, Mo. 33-0; Yates Center 52-12; and Uniontown 25-0.p class=”p1″>Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.< Close Forgot password?
