The brief included demolition of three buildings that surrounded and attached to the grandstand, cutting it off from the street and parkland behind.Save this picture!© Lacoste + Stevenson ArchitectsThe design strategy was to restore the existing structure’s prominence in the parkland and create better physical and visual connections around it. In order to minimize the impact of the new additions, they are placed directly behind the grandstand and divided into 3 smaller buildings instead of one building, reducing the overall bulk and scale. The new buildings are set off the grandstand with a passageway between them. Connection between the new and the old is on the first floor via a steel mesh walkway that lightly bridges the four buildings allowing light to filter below. The ancillary buildings are clad in the same weatherboard profile as the grandstand and with the heights of the new buildings aligning with the grandstand; they echo the scale and expression of the grandstand. Save this picture!© Lacoste + Stevenson ArchitectsThe ground floor of the three new buildings houses the male and female public toilets and a storage room. At high level, the timber façade into each of these rooms is perforated with a flower pattern allowing natural light and ventilation into these spaces, casting flower patterns around the rooms. The ground staff facilities on the top floor are also animated with perforations and views to the sky and trees through round skylights.Save this picture!© Lacoste + Stevenson ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessMaterial beyond Materials: Composite TectonicsArticlesIn Progress: NASA Sustainability Base / William McDonough + Partners and AECOMArticles Share Flower Power / Lacoste + Stevenson Architects CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Sydney, Australia 2011 Photographs ArchDaily “COPY” Flower Power / Lacoste + Stevenson ArchitectsSave this projectSaveFlower Power / Lacoste + Stevenson Architects “COPY” Houses Architects: Lacoste + Stevenson Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia Year: CopyAbout this officeLacoste + Stevenson ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentSydneyRefurbishmentPublic FacilitiesAustraliaPublished on March 08, 2011Cite: “Flower Power / Lacoste + Stevenson Architects” 08 Mar 2011.

Sierra de Madrid is the name of the mountainous region near the Spanish Capital. For those who do not live in the Spanish capital, is very popular among locals thanks to its great landscape and natural value. In winter its peaks are still covered with snow. In summer you can enjoy a good handful of degrees less than the urban oven suffers, being able to even sleep well at night thanks to the coolness of the mountains. There are varied fauna, rivers and clean natural pools in which bathing is allowed, sidewalks and very pleasant routes. Sierra de Madrid is the most recurrent escape door to breathe fresh air for all Madrilenians, especially since it is very close to the city, in 45 minutes by car you can be in the middle of nature, actually, in the middle of a quality natural environment.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoSave this picture!Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoIt explains then why the existence of multiple second residences, they are very common in that region, dotting all the small towns along a radius of up to an hour and a half of driving distance to Madrid. Both during the holidays and every weekend, the people of Madrid, many of them with rural origins one or two generations above, love to feel “hometown” again from time to time. Come back to live even for a few days or weeks with pause, with quality of life, without traffic, without noise.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoThe land around here is usually always sloping, especially when we are already at a considerable altitude in the mountains, so the BUS House has to adapt to these slopes by forming a terrace with its pleasant backyard higher than the entrance street itself. Casa BUS is a town house, a house in the mountains near Madrid “initially proposed” as a place of recreation and rest for an urban family. A return to the origins, a return to life in the village.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoSave this picture!It is important to underline the words “initially proposed”: when the project was conceived, the world was enjoying the pre-covid-19 context, and the work was completed a few months before the pandemic broke out. Save this picture!Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoSuddenly the “second residence” has become an excellent option for the family that inhabits it as a habitual residence. The depth of the social, economic, health and urban changes that will come after the end of the covid-19 pandemic are currently (September 2020) unknown, but everything points to the fact that homes in rural areas close to Cities are already becoming a very attractive life option for many.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoThese are spacious and cheap houses (in the city you could never build for the same price on such a large lot), with all the comforts of modern life, perfectly connected, built according to contemporary sustainable standards, in healthier places, more spacious, with a higher quality of life, … And close to large cities. You can telecommute most of the time and go to the city once or twice per week if you want to attend in person to some management or enjoy the cultural offer of the city.OOIIO Architecture has been building modern houses in rural settings for years, not at all because we saw such a pandemic coming, but because we were always interested in those contexts to work with, and some projects called others. Luckily right now we have extensive experience in works of this type.Save this picture!© JosefotoinmoSave this picture!The BUS House has become for us a work that will mark a turning point within the studio.

A militant demonstration of 200 people chanted and marched from an Atlanta-area rail station to the Dekalb County Jail on May 15 to protest inhumane conditions inside the jail. The demonstration marched through Memorial Drive, a major road in Dekalb County. Protesters blocked traffic until police attacked them in the street and violently arrested four people. Although demonstrators were being forced off the streets, they maintained a loud presence in front of the jail. Prisoners and their families have been complaining about the horrible living conditions in the jail. They have told stories of inadequate and inedible food, black mold growing on cell walls and extensive use of solitary confinement. Also, access is limited for medical services for both pre-existing conditions and illnesses acquired inside the jail. This is the second demonstration to protest these conditions. These issues have been brought before the county commissioners, but they have not taken any action. Sheriff Jeffrey Mann has refused to meet with the prisoners in his jail. He claims there have been no grievances filed, even though it is well-known that prisoners will be punished for complaining about these conditions.The demonstration was called by the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), and was supported by many local and national groups. Organizers vow to be back in the streets to continue this struggle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE Villwock Makes Strong Case for Farm Bill Nutrition Programs The Knox County farmer, who was on Capitol Hill during the debate, says farmers did not make their voice heard on the Farm Bill issue, “There is a great deal of indecision among farmers about the Farm Bill. Many are not sure we even need a Farm Bill.” He warned, however, that going forward farmers will need to make their voice heard on Capitol Hill in order to get a Farm Bill passed. SHARE A veteran of many Farm Bills, Villwock admits he is uncertain about where things will go now and remains pessimistic about eventual passage of a new Farm Bill, “There are so many challenges in from of us now.” Rumors are circulating in Washington that the House will not appoint conferees to a House/Senate conference committee and that Senate leaders have said they will not go to conference until the House deals with the nutrition programs. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleKeeping the Lion’s ShareNext articleGrowth Energy CEO Responds to Latest Oil Price Hike Gary Truitt Last week the House passed a Farm Bill that did not contain a food and nutrition title. Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock says nutrition is a farm issue that needs to be addressed. By removing the food stamp and nutrition programs from the Farm Bill, Republicans were able to garner enough votes to pass a Farm Bill. But Villwock maintains this is a mistake, “We in agriculture need the support of the nutrition community.” He pointed out that most people would not vote for a Farm Bill, but would vote for a nutrition program that feeds children. Home Indiana Agriculture News Villwock Makes Strong Case for Farm Bill Nutrition Programs He told HAT that inclusion of a nutrition program in a Farm Bill would be good policy for urban and rural America, “There are many schools in rural Indiana where over 50% of the children qualify for free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch programs.” He said these programs have an impact on the quality of life in rural America and represent a significant source of demand for food produced by farmers.

RSF is calling on Tashkent to drop the charges against him and allow him to leave the country safely.Bobomurod Abdullaev, an Uzbek journalist and scholarship recipient from emergency aid program of RSF’s German section, which was organizing his transfer to Berlin, arrested on August 9 in Bishkek at the request of the Uzbek secret services, was extradited by military plane by the Kyrgyz authorities on August 22, in violation of international conventions. During his detention in Bishkek, the journalist was kept in solitary confinement and his lawyers were denied access to him, allegedly due to coronavirus quarantine rules. Once in Uzbekistan, he underwent six hours of interrogation and was finally released in the evening after signing a document assuring his “good conduct”. According to his lawyer, Sergei Mayorov, Bobomurod Abduallaev is not allowed to travel to Uzbekistan or leave the country without the permission of the inspector in charge of the investigation and until it is completed, which could take up to three months. On the evening of 22 August, a video message from Bobomurod Abdullayev to President Shavkat Mirziyoyev appeared on the Facebook page of the news site Kun.uz. The journalist thanked the Head of state for granting his mother’s request for his release. It is not known where this video was shot and whether the journalist acted voluntarily or under pressure from Uzbek secret services.”If Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev is serious about his commitment to reforms, all the charges against Bobomurod Abdullaev must be dropped immediately and the Uzbek authorities must allow him to travel safely to Germany,” said RSF Gemany’s Executive Director Christian Mihr. “We fear that our programme participant could be arrested again as soon as international interest in the case wanes.”According to his Kyrgyz lawyers, Abdullaev is under criminal investigation in Uzbekistan on charges of “attacks against the president” (Article 158 of the Uzbek Penal Code) and disseminating materials that “target the constitutional order of the Republic of Uzbekistan” (Article 159).The accusations, for which he faces up to five years in prison, are based on the publication of posts critical of the Uzbek president and government under the pseudonym Qora Mergan. However, the journalist has always denied being behind this alias, and the account holder has himself denied any link with Bobomurod Abdullaev, and continued to publish on the Telegram messaging service after his detention.Abdullaev was already held in detention in Uzbekistan for seven and a half months in 2017/2018 because of his journalistic activities, and reported at the time that he was tortured while in prison. Between November 2019 and February 2020, he spent three months in Berlin within the framework of the emergency aid program of RSF Germany, which had invited the journalist to accept an emergency scholarship this summer due to the acute risks he faces in his own country.Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan are ranked 156th and 82nd respectively out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. August 26, 2020 – Updated on August 27, 2020 RSF is concerned about the fate of an Uzbek journalist extradited by Kyrgyzstan “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says
Organisation March 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Al-Watan’s distribution blocked Help by sharing this information The authorities blocked distribution of the leading pro-government daily Al-Watan without giving any explanation although it is owned by Rami Makhlouf, a cousin of the president. Media sources blamed the move on an article headlined “The Syrian media are lying to us.” The ban was issued at 6 a.m., almost immediately after the latest issue had been printed. The information ministry lifted the ban later in the day, again without any explanation. Al-Watan had also criticized the international media’s coverage of the events in Deraa, insisting that everything was calm in Syria and accusing them of lying. RSF_en News
