Historical background and locationThe project is located in a suburban village between Geneva and Lausanne. group8 have built two of the five buildings which were part of the first phase of a neighborhood planning strategy. The reflective process has been based around both a social and urban analysis in order to endorse the urban density, which is a required stage for all municipalities of the region.A proactive development of the housing zone has been made in accordance with the guidelines of the program, encompassing the existing spatial and built elements located in the area. New and denser urban forms consisting of intermediate sized volumes with flat roofs have complemented the existing buildings while maintaining an appropriate scale.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioProgramThe two buildings consist of three floors above ground and offer different typologies of apartments that meet both the characteristics of an urban multi-unit dwelling or an individual villa. The 16 units generated are duplex or single apartments ranging from the studio to six rooms. A childcare centre also completes this housing complex. The five buildings of the program are interlinked by a level of underground parking.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanConcept and VolumeLike the houses, the apartments are arranged in juxtaposition of floor slabs separated by physical interstices, thereby providing openings for each housing, on every side. The openings are either positioned directly on the front or on the second aperture at the heart of the plan.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioGaps between dwellings imply that there is no housing in direct contiguity, which strengthens both the sense of individualization and privacy. From a collective approach, these gaps allow outside views from the public places on each level.The over proximity of the buildings means there are relatively small spaces between the units. Each apartment has a generously sized terrace, positioned as loggia within the volume. The volumes are treated as finite forms which have been cut out and carved in order to provide private spaces specific to each dwelling.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioShell and StructureThe buildings are wrapped in a pierced skin composed of travertine blades. Their function is primarily to behave as visual filter, similar to a claustra, in order to protect the apartments. This limits the views between the apartments as they are very close to each other. A frontal view allows for an outward visibility, while a lateral view protects from a direct visibility.The external stone blades bring a certain texture and vibration feeling to the front elevation. It provokes a change of perception for the observer walking along the street. By passing by each of the apartment windows, the blades ensure a partial protection against bad weather and limit sunbeams.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioContext and MaterialityWith its traditional connotation, travertine provides a certain minerality which echoes back to the village’s oldest buildings. Its resolutely contemporary implementation with a perpendicular provision offers a new approach to the stone as element of traditional construction.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioThis constructive appliance provides dynamics to the elevation by capturing the light in many ways, depending on the seasons and the sunlight exposure. The travertine’s light and warm color is related to the brown shades of the front elevation which are inspired from the soil of this agricultural area.The travertine has been used for all units in the first phase of the planning strategy. It gives a certain consistency in material and color to the entire neighborhood, while its implementation and perception can be presented differently. The outdoor arrangements have also been developed collectively for the five buildings.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioEnergy PerformanceThe facade is composed of wood, metal and stone, which are materials that have good thermal insulation and a low weight. The continuous insulation maximizes the energy performance. The solar panels placed on the rooftop heat an important volume of water stored in a buried and isolated water tank. This water acts as an energy storage variable and provides heating for the buildings.Coupled with the solar panel installations this system ensures an energy supply for the heating and the hot water. The air renewal is controlled by a dual-flow system in order to avoid important heat loss. Thus the project reaches an extremely efficient balance using 100% renewable and indigenous energies and reaches the high standard label MINERGIE ®.Save this picture!© Régis Golay, FEDERAL studioProject gallerySee allShow lessDiébédo Francis Kéré and Architectural Energy in Burkina FasoVideosAV House / BAKSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A global virtual fundraising summit will take place in August, dedicated to the arts, culture and heritage sector.With the pandemic forcing the closure of theatres and other venues and attractions and more than 2m jobs associated with the creative industries in the UK, there have been many calls for support since the outbreak began, including last week’s letter to the government from an alliance of almost 100 actors, writers, directors and creatives.To help the sector address the financial challenges organisations around the world are facing due to the coronavirus pandemic, the  National Arts Fundraising School has launched the conference, ‘Defining The New Normal’, which it believes is the first of its kind.It will see over 30 experts from around the globe come together on 18 August to share best practice, insights and predictions for the future of fundraising.Joining the lineup are leaders, fundraisers, funders, artists and experts from countries including Russia, Brazil, Canada, USA, Singapore, Portugal and Australia. Names include Paul Ramsbottom OBE, CEO of Wolfson Foundation (UK); Fiona Menzies, CEO of Creative Partnerships Australia (Australia); Rachel Malkenhorst, Chief Development Officer at Los Angeles Ballet (USA) and Deborah Meyers, Director of Development at Science Museums Group (UK).The conference will take place online through Fundraising Everywhere and supported by sponsors Good CRM, Agents of Good, Moore Kingston Smith and Pro Active Resolutions.There will be two live streams running concurrently that delegates can move between, as well as additional bonus downloadable content. Delegates will be able to interact with the hosts, speakers and content using a live chat box and networking rooms. Also included in the ticket price is access to the Emcees Awards for Excellence in Arts & Cultural Fundraising, as well as artist performances.Dana Segal, Conference Curator and Deputy Director of the National Arts Fundraising School commented:“The challenge is that if we don’t define the ‘new normal’ for arts and cultural fundraising, someone else will do it for us, and probably not in a good way. This is why we wanted to bring together experts and delegates from all over the world – so that no arts, culture or heritage professional feels alone in their challenges. Delegates will get access to practical advice, support and predictions for ‘what next’, so that they can reflect, learn and plan effectively for their future.”  306 total views,  2 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

Last weekend, two volunteers from Donegal charity Animals In Need spotted the cat whilst they were carrying out routine Trap/Neuter/Return of feral cats in the area.X-rays of the injured cat this week have since revealed that the animal had been shot.The AIN volunteers noticed that she was in poor condition generally, was extremely emaciated, suffering from cat flu and one side of her face appeared to be caved in and so they quickly caught her and brought her to the vets for assessment, where the full extent of the horrors this poor cat had endured were exposed.A shocked spokesperson from AIN said ‘An x-ray at the vets showed metal shards in her jaw. No injury we can think of would present with metal fragments in the jaw apart from her having been shot in the face.’The laying of poisoned bait is illegal under S.I. No. 481 of 2010 (Restrictions on Use of Poison Bait) Regulations 2010 and anyone breaking this law faces a fine of up to €5,000 or a year in prison or both.If you have any information on the laying of poisoned bait, please pass it on to the Gardai or the Officers at the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

And, that means no eating or drinking, no cell phones, no inputting CDs or doing anything that would be distracting from the task at hand – safe driving.Richardson was emphatic about the use of seatbelts.“Twelve thousand lives are saved each year by seatbelts,” he said. “Maybe you’ve heard that someone might have died in a car accident if they’d had on their seatbelt. That could happen, but the chances are so miniscule that it’s not even worth mentioning. It would be about the same chance as getting struck by lightning or winning the lottery.”Richardson told the students that having teenagers is tough on parents.“Take into consideration that your parents want you to be safe and that they worry every time you walk out of the house and get in a car,” he said. “Parents are not supposed to outlive their children. It’s not supposed to work that way. Don’t make it work like that.“Every time you get behind the wheel, the decisions that you make affect other people. Remember that.”At the conclusion of the program, Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, Troy Police Department public information officer, spoke briefly to the students.“You are about to make history here at Pike Liberal Arts,” Scarbrough said in reference to the Patriots’ State Championship football game on Friday. “But don’t make another kind of history. Be here to enjoy it. Don’t cut it short.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Email the author Print Article By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Richardson is the co-founder of “It Won’t Happen To Me,” a non-profit corporation dedicated to reducing the number one cause of teen deaths – car crashes – through education and awareness.Richardson told how, in the blink of an eye, a life could come to a violent end. He also told how that life could have been saved with a click of the seatbelt or a cautious glace at the highway ahead.He told the story of a young man who took his eye off the road for just a split second to input a CD.“Matthew Dwyer was trapped in the car,” Richardson said. “His two friends got out through a broken window, but they couldn’t get him out. They stood helplessly and watched as their friend was burned alive.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “Six thousand precious lives gone each year,” Bill Richardson, co-founder of “It Won’t Happen To Me,” told an audience of teenagers at Pike Liberal Arts School on Wednesday. “But heaven can wait.”You could have heard a pin drop as the students watched as one picture after another of young people, who had lost their lives in car accidents, flashed on the screen.The students sat almost motionless as Richardson told the story of each young person and how they died – needlessly.

A flexible computer-based technique for the analysis of data from a sea-going nutrient autoanalyser

first_imgModern instruments and techniques used to collect nutrient data at sea may amass huge data sets from discrete samples and continuously monitored sample streams. The volume and format of data produced by some sampling techniques preclude data analysis by manual methods. However, the analysis of a wide variety of sample types also makes the use of fully automatic data analysis inappropriate, so that a flexible approach to data analysis is required. Although at sea autoanalyser chemistry methods are thoroughly described in the literature, little information is available on data handling procedures. A suite of computer programmes has been developed to cope with a wide variety of autoanalyser nutrient data. Here we describe the basic design of data acquisition and sub-sampling programmes and methods of operation.last_img read more
