The house is located on the edge of an old eucalyptus hill near the Paraná River (originally intended for productive use) that has recently been appointed for residential use. The overlap between the spatial logics of an old afforestation and contemporary residential demands define the main challenge of the project. The analysis of the existing afforestation on the plot determines an area in which to locate the house due to its geometry and the position of the trees.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoSave this picture!Floor Plan Ground FloorSave this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoThe house is developed on a single main floor and two small attics. The horizontality of the house establishes a contrast and a tension with the verticality of the forest. The strategy of the project has been to fragment the program into smaller orthogonal volumes of more private or secondary uses. These volumes are positioned in different angles (avoiding existing trees) and leaving a large irregular and tall area in the centre for the dining room, living room and kitchen, this being the spatial and social heart of the house.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoThe irregular angles that the encounter of these volumes leave in the perimeter are destined to intermediate spaces between the interior and exterior of the house, either in the form of patios -which include some of the existing trees- or semi-covered galleries. A simple gable roof defines the upper profile of the volume that takes different heights as the geometries of the walls and ceilings intersect. The highest point of the ridge is located above the living room and defines the generous interior spatiality of the main environment of the house.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoFor the exterior of the house, a black plaster has been used that integrates with the darkness of the forest and will age well considering the humidity and the falling leaves typical to the place. On the interior, white walls generate oblique and unexpected views and perspectives. The ceiling is also white, tall and bright. Entering the house is almost like finding a clearing in the middle of the forest, finding the sky again, on the inside.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Luciano NavariniProject gallerySee allShow lessCentral Hotel Boutique / DUA Desarrollos Urbanos y ArquitectónicosSelected ProjectsGrafton Architects Wins 2020 RIBA Royal Gold MedalArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeDiego Arraigada ArquitectoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesArgentinaPublished on October 03, 2019Cite: “House Between Trees / Diego Arraigada Arquitecto” [Casa entre árboles / Diego Arraigada Arquitecto] 03 Oct 2019.

Marist hires former Harrison head coach Richard Glover Jr. as new…

first_imgMarist High School has hired Richard Glover Jr. as their new varsity football coach. “Coach Glover is the right fit for the job. We are excited to see how he will grow our football program,” said Marist Athletic Director Erica Buonacquista.Coach Glover has coached at the professional, collegiate, and high school level since 2008 and was signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2005. He began his coaching career as an Assistant Head Coach at Dickinson High School in Jersey City before becoming a Graduate Assistant at New Mexico State University. From there, he became an intern for the Philadelphia Eagles and then an Assistant Football Coach for Iowa Western Community College.Recently, Coach Glover was the Head Football Coach at Harrison High School for the 2015 season, leading the team to three wins after the program only had four wins the past five seasons.Coach Glover is excited about the new opportunities he has at Marist and is ready to begin instituting his new program. “I applied for this job because it was a challenge, and the facilities are great,” said Glover. “The location of Marist allows the school to draw kids from different places, and the ability to practice right at the school is really helpful.”Coach Glover’s main goal for the offseason is to establish a new culture for the team. “I want to teach the players how to compete, fight, and dedicate themselves to the ultimate goal of winning football games,” said Glover. “When a team does not have a lot of success, the first thing a coach needs to do is establish a culture of competition. Players competing against each other, but also competing against themselves everyday – getting one more rep in the weight room or finishing through the line on sprints.”Coach Glover has already met with the team and has begun offseason workouts. “It is great to already be hired because I have the offseason to really implement my program and the culture I want this team to have,” said Glover.“Coach Glover brings a new philosophy and energy with him that we are very excited about,” said A.D. Buonacquista. “I think our players will respond to him well and I look forward to watching him implement his program.”last_img read more

Pure governance magic

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Serving as the chairman of your CUNA Board is one of the highlights of my nearly 40-year career. From this perch, I have gained a fuller appreciation for the genius of the cooperative governance system.Please indulge me as I share a few observations.I am joined on the CUNA Board by a group of dedicated and talented directors. This is not an overstatement. Each board member brings a unique perspective to the issues confronting credit unions today.The diversity of ideas, perspectives, and experiences from credit union and league leaders informs the board in making rational decisions. But this isn’t what inspires me the most.Most of you don’t have the opportunity to sit in on a CUNA Board meeting. For this reason, you don’t often see the board at work. continue reading »last_img read more

Maluku indigenous people arrested amid conflict with company over disputed forest

first_imgThe Eastern Seram Police have released four locals as of Thursday but continued to detain 22 others from Sabuai village, Siwalat district, Eastern Seram regency, Maluku, for staging a rally to protest a logging company operating in a forest the protesters claimed as their customary area.The police arrested them on Monday after the protest turned into a riot and the protesters chained some of the company’s heavy equipment used to transport logs from Mount Ahwale forest, Sabuai.The protesters said even though they were being questioned as witnesses, they regarded the detention as part of an attempt to “criminalize” them. Topics : “Yes, the police are still questioning us. There are 22 of us left,” Hatuari, one of the residents detained at the Werinama Police, said on Thursday.He claimed that they were not being treated like witnesses.“We ask the government or the [National Commission on Human Rights] to check up on us,” Hatuari said.Eastern Seram Police spokesperson Brig. Suwardi Sobo confirmed the arrests of the 26 Sabuai villagers, saying that they were being examined as witnesses. “We have not named any suspects,” he said.center_img He also said that of the 26 detained, four had been questioned and sent home.Read also: Land disputes still common, putting farmers’ future in jeopardyDozens of Sabuai people on Monday staged a demonstration in an attempt to stop the company  from continuing its activities in the forest.Chairman of the Sabuai indigenous community, Nicko Ahwalam, said locals had repeatedly tried to stop the company’s activities and issued a customary sanction against it.“The company ignored it,” he said.Sabuai residents claimed the company’s logging activities were illegal. However, Maluku Forestry Agency head Fadly Lie said the company had obtained a license to log from the administration. It also holds a license to cultivate the forest area.“They have followed regulations,” said Fadli, who also claimed that the area was not a customary forest but “areas for other uses” known as APL.“I have told the police and prosecutors in East Seram that the area is an APL,” Fadly went on.Read also: New land law should address agrarian crisesNicko said the Mount Ahwale forest was home to wood of high economic value. The area is also rich in historical sites and legacies of residents’ ancestors, such as Negeri Lama.“This forest and mountain are part of our village. How can we give it up to be exploited?” Nicko said.He added that the logging had also caused damaged to the environment, turning it into a barren forest.“Just wait until the rainy season. It will for sure cause landslides and flooding. We live at the foot of the mountain. Landslides can hit our village,” he said.Despite the forestry agency’s insistence about the legality of the logging activities, residents and university students, grouped under  the Sabuai Students Alliance, have claimed that the activities are illegal, which is why they have filed a report with the police. Sabuai customary government chief Friderik Nisdoam said in June last year that locals had never been invited to discuss the environmental impact of the company’s activities and had not been notified about them.  last_img read more

Museveni leaves Burundi without a deal for the crisis

first_imgPresident Museveni was in Burundi to try and find a solution to the political crisis facing the country Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni left crisis talks between Burundi’s rival political factions without a deal, but last-ditch efforts following months of violence continued ahead of polls next week.Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid to stand for a third consecutive five-year term in an election next Tuesday, despite a constitutional two-term limit, has sparked months of turmoil and an attempted coup in mid-May.“The ruling party in Burundi and the opposition parties and the civil society have agreed to negotiate expeditiously, intensively… in order to reach an agreement,” Museveni told reporters as he left.Previous United Nations-mediated efforts have all collapsed.Ugandan Defence Minister Crispus Kiyonga took over mediation efforts started by Museveni a day earlier, in the latest bid to push stalled talks between Nkurunziza’s ruling CNDD-FDD party and opposition groups.President Museveni and his counterpart Pierre NkurunzizaMuseveni, who was appointed mediator last week by the five-nation East African Community (EAC), has urged Burundians “to forget their past sectarian political differences”.Around 100 people have been killed in more than two months of protests, with over 158,000 refugees fleeing to neighbouring countries, according to the UN.Gunfire and grenade explosions have hit the capital in recent nights, as has been common in recent weeks.With the presidential election now taking place on Tuesday, there are only a few days to seal a deal between the opposing sides, but Burundi presidential communication advisor Willy Nyamitwe said there had been “positive” talks.Key opposition leader Agathon Rwasa said talks would continue, adding that “there will be no taboo subjects, everything must be put on the table”.Polls, originally due on Wednesday, were pushed back by six days amid intense international pressure.But a group of 17 aid agencies and rights groups warned Wednesday that was “an insufficient gesture that ignores the risk that elections could spark major violence”.Opposition groups say another term would violate a peace deal that paved the way to end a dozen years of civil war in 2006. There are fears the current crisis could plunge the impoverished, landlocked country back into civil war.“Scores have already been killed, but this could be just the beginning of something much worse,” said Ndung’u Wainaina, from the Kenya-based International Center for Policy and Conflict, a member of the coalition demanding further delays.“In the current context of tensions and credible threats of further violence, holding elections next week could push Burundi into a much deeper crisis,” Wainaina added.Nkurunziza’s ruling party scored a widely-expected landslide win in parliamentary polls held on May 29, but these were boycotted by the opposition and condemned internationally as not free and fair.Violence has continued in Burundi, where troops clashed with suspected rebel fighters over the weekend in northern regions bordering Rwanda.Burundian rebel general Leonard Ngendakumana — who took part in the failed coup in May to topple Nkurunziza — has confirmed that soldiers loyal to the coup plot were involved in the fighting.Opposition leader Alexis Sinduhije on Wednesday said a group of exiled Burundian dissidents had created an alliance to force Nkurunziza from power, likely to be based in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.“The global aim is to get Nkurunziza out,” he told France 24.“Unfortunately, I have the impression the only way will be through violence.”Nkurunziza “can leave now and be thanked by Burundians for saving lives, or he can refuse to go and be forced out”, Sinduhije added.last_img read more
