The building is situated on a sloping terrain on the outskirts of Černín, taking the same slope into its internals for floors. The interior layout is based on alternating straight and sloping floor surfaces that create the overall spiralling character of the interior and define the building’s external appearance. However, the use of the sloping floor on the ground floor is not purposeless – it is there on investor´s reguest to accomodate movie projections as a small movie theatre. Windows and other openings are placed with respect of the external façade – each of the walls only has one opening. For thermal and water insulation a polyurethane spray with pink coat is used, meant as a credit to our favourite building of Versuchsanstalt fur Wasserbau und Schiffbau by Ludwig Leo.Project gallerySee allShow lessAlphabet CityArticlesInventare la Natura Urbana CompetitionArticles Share CopyAbout this officeHSH architektiOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJevišoviceHousesCzech RepublicPublished on December 28, 2009Cite: “Vila Hermína / HSH architekti” 28 Dec 2009.

The apartment building Hans-Jürg Buff forms the southwest end of the residential development Chalavus in St. Moritz Bad. Together with the other surrounding buildings, it is grouped around a protected leafy courtyard, comprising a high quality overall urban development. The new five-storey building continues a block, loosely integrated with the existing structure on the south side of the courtyard. Save this picture!© Roger FreiThe apartment complex benefits from its detached, free-standing setting. The accommodation units are laid out in two-storey units in all four directions, providing stunning views of the picturesque mountain landscape. The rooms fan out following the sun’s course from the east side to the south-west. In this way the natural light floods the living areas and at any time of day there are always variable and interesting light patterns.

The whole building is clad entirely in Gauinger travertine and underlined through the use of a irregular bonding in the stone finish it gives a significant association to a overall monolithic structure.

The wooden window shutters reflect the character of the region as well as serving contemporary demands. The insulating layer between the eight centimetre thick stone and concrete walls conforms to Canton energy policies, being of a considerably higher heat transfer coefficient than that required.

R50 – cohousing is a joint building venture project in Berlin-Kreuzberg. It was initiated by the architects during the course of a concept-based award procedure for building plots and implemented in close cooperation with the clients. The building proposal is founded on a clear urban design position, robust and precisely detailed architectural design, and both a collective and individual process of occupancy.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe detached building is surrounded by various housing concepts characteristic of Berlin’s post-war period. It has six full storeys, a basement and an attic. It comprises three blocks with 19 individual apartments, one studio and various shared spaces. Underneath is a doubleheight, flexible community space which connects the building’s main access with the public street space. It is made available for neighbourhood groups and other public uses. The reinforced concrete structure was designed to minimum requirements. Combined with the reduced and partly exposed infrastructure, the modular timber facade with fixed and flexible, outward opening glazed door elements was specifically developed for this building. This combined with the all-around balconies on each level allows a direct dialogue between the building’s architecture and its use.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsMeeting the owners’ aspiration for collective and affordable living and working, the architectural concept is based on a compact and efficient structure with carefully detailed connections on different scales. It is based on a concrete skeleton with one access and two service cores, an independent timber facade and a suspended steel construction for the all around balconies. A slightly sunken basement level provides access to the building and merges private and public spaces. Each apartment and all additional community spaces were developed by an intensive process of consultations, discussions and design. Based on the structural framework the sizes of apartments could be determined and individual requirements accommodated in the floor plans. In parallel to this process, a common standard for fixtures and fittings was developed and defined, which has resulted in a collective approach to interior fittings, the use of materials and some surfaces left unfinished, whilst allowing individual layouts of the apartments. This kind of structured yet open design process has not only allowed for extensive participation, self-directed design and self-building, but has also led to mutual agreement on the type, location, size and design of spaces shared by residents. This includes the generous urban garden, which naturally blends into the landscape of the surrounding 1960s residential neighbourhood, an access ramp leading to a covered area in front of the basement, a laundry, a workshop and a roof terrace with a summer kitchen and a winter garden. The allaround balconies accompany the bright interior spaces and connect the apartments on each floor.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsR50 – cohousing is a new model typology for low-cost and affordable housing offering a maximum capacity for adaptation and flexibility throughout its lifetime. Social, cultural, economic and ecological aspects have been considered equally to define a contemporary sustainable approach to urban living. The limit set by German Energy Saving Regulations (EnEV 2009) was reduced by 30%. Another essential aspect of sustainability is the building’s particular ability to integrate into the existing urban fabric.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsProject gallerySee allShow less”Classic Japan” Episode 2: Sachio Otani’s Kyoto International Conference CenterVideosThe Origami-Inspired / Landmak ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ritterstraße 50, 10969 Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Labor unions condemn fascist attack

first_imgLabor unions, especially those representing education, health care and public service workers — whose members are a majority women and people of color — were swift to condemn the racist, fascist violence in Charlottesville, Va.The American Federation of Teachers, representing more than 1.6 million education workers, including teachers and other staff, issued a statement Aug. 12 condemning the fascist killing. The statement called it “a dark turning point for our country” and encouraged its members to participate in protests and vigils around the U.S.The AFT stated: “This type of domestic terrorism has pilloried communities of color, Jews and other marginalized groups throughout history. … Friday’s torch-light march showed that white supremacists are so emboldened that they don’t even feel the need to wear hoods. The violence directed at counter-protesters was meant to instill fear in the hearts of people who are fighting for a more inclusive [U.S.]. … This is a significant moment, and we must act now.”The union also noted: “As students go back to school this year, they’re going to be afraid. For too many, this type of racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia will replicate itself in our communities and on our playgrounds. It’s left many of us educators determined to discuss this with our students.”On Aug. 13, the AFT and more than two dozen leaders in its Higher Education Division issued another statement in which they hailed the counterprotesters who “did the work of bending the arc of history toward justice. We send them our solidarity and our support, our admiration for their bravery, and our commitment that we will be with them throughout whatever is to come.”The union leaders decried Trump for his racism and bigotry and demanded members of the administration “correct their course. They must reflect on their role in normalizing racism through statement and policy, and on their responsibility in creating the sense of moral license that enabled racist terrorism to manifest itself in the streets of Charlottesville and on the grounds of the University of Virginia.”‘We cannot be silent’Service Employees International President Mary Kay Henry issued a statement Aug. 12 on behalf of the union, which represents almost 2 million health care workers in the U.S. and Canada: “SEIU members condemn the violence spread by white supremacists in today’s deadly terror attack. Our hearts are heavy with grief for the families who are now dealing with the death or injury of a loved one.“This tragedy is a reminder that … we have yet to address the long legacy of racism and slavery that is deeply embedded in our history and experienced in our present day. We cannot be silent and must speak out against the violence and intimidation we have seen in Charlottesville and far too many other cities. Working people must, and we will, join together and organize our communities to eliminate racism at all levels and create a world where everyone, no matter the color of their skin, can participate, prosper and reach our full potential.”National Nurses United also condemned the fascist violence in Charlottesville. NNU Executive Director RoseAnn DeMoro emphasized, “As a society, it is incumbent upon all of us to forcefully repudiate all expressions of white supremacy, racial hatred, and bigotry. Anyone familiar with the history of how white supremacy has stained our nation … cannot be surprised that continued expressions of that virulent philosophy would lead to violence today.“All … elected leaders,” said DeMoro, “starting in the White House, have a responsibility to condemn racial hatred and the violence it encourages, and disassociate from those promoting it.” The union leader praised those who took a “a stand for cultural diversity and understanding among all people. We have a long ways to go to assure the equality, civil rights and civil liberties of all our people. There’s no time to waste.”The national officers of the United Electrical Workers, representing some 35,000 workers in manufacturing, public sector and private nonprofit sector jobs, issued a Facebook statement condemning white supremacy and neo-Nazi attacks, and promising “to continue organizing in our workplaces and communities to fight racism, fascism and bigotry.”The statement goes on: “UE stands with the people of Charlottesville and all of their allies who marched against the bigots and bravely stood up to hatred, racism, and violence. Our union was founded on the principles of equality for all — regardless of who you are, where you came from, or what you believe. UE local leaders and members enforce these principles in our workplaces and communities every day. We reject Trump’s pandering to white supremacists and hatred which is contrary to the core principles of UE. [We]will fight like hell to stamp out the scourge of racism, bigotry, and hate.”Many local unions around the country took this opportunity to take a stand for social justice and urged their members via texts and email to join in protests against white supremacy and racial hatred in their cities and communities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Pairwise Raises $90 Million to Bring New Varieties of Fruits and Vegetables to Market Twitter Local NewsBusiness Facebook Facebook WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 DURHAM, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Pairwise announced the closing of its $90 million Series B funding round, signaling a new frontier in healthy, sustainable food innovation. Funding for the round was led by Pontifax Global Food and Agriculture Technology Fund (Pontifax AgTech), a pioneering growth capital investor in food and agriculture technology, and existing investor Deerfield Management Company (Deerfield), an investment firm dedicated to advancing healthcare through investment, information and philanthropy. Also joining the Series B round are new investor Temasek, an investment company headquartered in Singapore, and existing investor Leaps by Bayer, which invests in paradigm-shifting advances in the life sciences sector, including agriculture and health. Through the company’s unique use of CRISPR technology, Pairwise will help build a healthier world by introducing better fruits and vegetables with improved taste, enhanced convenience, increased shelf life, improved yield, simplified harvesting, or lengthened season availability. As a leading mission-driven food tech company, Pairwise is using its cutting-edge technology to break down barriers to increase consumption of fresh produce. Today, only 10% of Americans eat the recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables, according to the CDC. To address challenges with inconsistent flavor, seeds, shelf life, year-round availability, and snackability, Pairwise will bring to the produce aisle new varieties of nutritious fruits and vegetables that consumers will love to eat, and will help to minimize waste. Pairwise believes the use of technology offers a transformative opportunity to open a new horizon for the $66 billion U.S. retail produce market, and is currently developing new types of leafy greens, berries, and cherries. Its first product is expected in 2022. “People see innovation all around them, except in the produce aisle. We will give consumers new options that make healthy eating easier and more exciting,” said Pairwise CEO Tom Adams. “With this additional funding from industry-leading investors, Pairwise is taking a bold step toward achieving our mission of building a healthier world.” “Pontifax AgTech is pleased to co-lead this funding round for Pairwise, one of the leading companies using technology in food and agriculture today,” said Pontifax AgTech Co-Founder and Managing Partner Ben Belldegrun. “COVID-19 reinforces the importance of health and nutrition and Pairwise provides consumers with new options in their produce aisle. Our investment in Pairwise reflects our thematic focus on the convergence of biotechnology and agriculture and the use of CRISPR technology to improve health and nutrition in food and agriculture. We believe that the combination of Pairwise’s gene editing platform, plant breeding expertise, and consumer food understanding creates a powerful engine that will be a game changer.” “Deerfield is pleased to co-lead and to expand our investment in Pairwise,” said Cam Wheeler, Deerfield Partner. “Deerfield focuses on curing disease and advancing healthcare. We believe a healthy diet is an important part of the equation and Pairwise’s products will do this by making healthy options more attainable and available.” Pairwise has built a unique crop trait development platform, based on gene editing technology licensed from leading research organizations, including Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard (Broad Institute). The company was founded by CEO Dr. Tom Adams and Chief Business Officer Dr. Haven Baker, with co-founders Dr. David Liu, of Harvard University, Dr. Feng Zhang, of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Dr. J. Keith Joung, of Massachusetts General Hospital. Pairwise announced $25 million in Series A funding in March 2018, led by Deerfield and what is now Leaps by Bayer, to develop its gene editing platform and initial product portfolio. At the same time, the company also announced a $100 million collaboration with what is now Bayer Crop Science to advance gene editing tools in corn, soybeans, wheat, canola and cotton. This work continues, with advancements ahead of schedule in tools addressing broad challenges like productivity, diseases, weather needs, and other critical factors to long term, sustainable growth for these row crops. In less than three years, the company has grown to 100 team members across two locations in Durham, North Carolina, with additional growth anticipated in 2021. About Pairwise Driven by the belief that whole food should be healthy, delicious, and convenient, Pairwise brings together leaders in agriculture, technology, and consumer foods to harness the transformative potential of new genomics technologies to create innovative new products. Pairwise is working to develop new varieties of crops, and to partner with food and agriculture companies who seek to put nutritious food on tables across North America.
