The plotLocated in l’Escala (Girona) near Montgó Cove with no special urban characteristics. A rectangular–shaped plot of 600 square meters surface with all urban services; soft topography, faces north-south oriented along the plot. There was no pre-existing condition at the site, neither vegetation nor built element. Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaConditionsThe program was simple, to develop a house for a couple; however there were some conditions that helped to start taking the first decisions: the house should have two floors to enable views to Pení Mountain and Cap de Creus. The clients also imagined porches as transition spaces in both floors as a way of linking indoor and outdoor environments; a space on the ground floor to work as an auxiliary room and few rooms with bathroom to host guests. Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!PlanProjectDue to the unpleasant surroundings of the plot it was proposed to plant all forms of vegetation on its perimeter. The intention was to modify the perception by densifying with vegetation and to avoid creating a fence. While the ground floor is related to the outdoor space, the first floor is related to landscape views. These conditions define the first logical construction of the house: three horizontal plans completely opened on their perimeter. In order to respond to the ‘comfortable’ programme of the house half of the area of each floor will be occupied by a lightweight ‘box’. These two boxes will be placed in opposite directions on each floor to establish an optimal relation with the exterior space depending on which floor. The box on the ground floor is placed on the north side in order to take advantage of the south orientation of the gallery and contains the kitchen and an auxiliary room/storage working as a porch in summer and as a solar gain space in winter. The box on the first floor holds two small rooms: their size permits to take profit of the appropriation of the exterior gallery space by the users. This space will be used as a balcony in summer and as a study in winter. While the boxes contain the ‘comfortable’ programmed space, the non-programmed gallery spaces are thought to be used with a passive thermal system all over the year. / Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaConstructionThe structure, based on concrete pillars and slabs, is the most important investment of the project budget. It contains the thermal inertia and at the same time characterizes gallery spaces and as a consequence the rest of the house. The strategy of the boxes responds to a mechanical constructive system: they are composed by a balloon frame, OSB panels and plasterboards partitions. The air chamber inside the walls partitions allows the storage of a huge quantity of isolation, avoiding the excess of thermal inertia of the rooms that need to be warmed up quickly during winter time. At the same time it allows to place all the technical elements in a house in which the concrete structure remains completely visible with no hidden elements. Finally, wood- concrete panels have been chosen as cladding for the boxes. Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaBuilding behaviourThe galleries that face east and south guarantee a high level of solar gain. They worked without any acclimatisation during winter days and work at the same time as a thermal cushion for the ‘comfort’ spaces. At night, curtains reduce the loss of heat while a wood-burning stove provides acclimatisation. These elements prevent also the house to cool down during periods that is empty. The boxes (well isolated, air-tighted and with no thermal inertia) have an aerothermal heat pump system that brings a quick heating to these spaces when users come back after a long absence. Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessProject Abandoned for 27 Years To Be Revitalized in MontenegroUnbuilt ProjectFrom Ancient Rome to the Coachella Festival: A Brief History of Pop-Up ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!© Adrià Goula+ 23 Share Spain “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783879/casa-1217-h-arquitectes Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783879/casa-1217-h-arquitectes Clipboard ArchDaily Houses Projectscenter_img Architects: HARQUITECTES Year Completion year of this architecture project 2015 “COPY” CopyHouses•L’Escala, Spain Casa 1217 / H ArquitectesSave this projectSaveCasa 1217 / H Arquitectes Casa 1217 / H Arquitectes Photographs Year: last_img read more

Karl Marx and the working-class struggle today

first_imgIntroductory remarks given at the event “[email protected]: Class Struggle in the Age of Trump,” hosted by Workers World Party, on May 6 in New York City.Welcome to this very special celebration of the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, the founder of scientific socialism, who was not only a brilliant thinker, but a revolutionary communist.Twenty years ago, the ruling class cheered for the “end of history.” They said Marxism was finally dead and buried. Their long nightmare was over. It would all be smooth sailing and big profits from now on.But here we are in 2018, on the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth. In the U.S. and much of the world, interest in Marxism is greater than it has been in decades! Capitalism’s temporary stabilization, based on the destruction of the Soviet Union and the scientific-technological revolution, is coming to an end.Today the world working class is bigger than ever before. Imperialist globalization has destroyed the stable, high-paying jobs that gave the Western powers a degree of social peace. Capitalism offers no security, no future, for youth in the Western countries or anywhere else. As a result, the revolutionary left (and the broader left) is growing rapidly, giving new life to Marx’s ideas.The working class is a dynamic class that is constantly changing. It’s different today than it was in Marx’s time, in Lenin’s time or during the great class battles of the 1930s. It’s different than it was 20 years ago or last year. It’s becoming more international, more diverse, driven by poverty and war across borders in search of work and safety, driven by environmental catastrophe and mass incarceration in the fight for its very survival.Yet today’s working class faces the same fundamental problem of capitalism that Marx exposed long ago: the contradiction between social labor and private ownership for profit.Workers World Party has been working for decades to orient the movement to the changing character of the working class: more oppressed nationalities, more women, more LBGTQ people, migrants, prisoners. We put forward the need for new tactics and new strategies for organizing and fighting back.In 1986 we published the groundbreaking book “High Tech, Low Pay” by Workers World Party founder Sam Marcy, and 10 years ago a further development of this analysis for the Internet age, “Low-Wage Capitalism” by Fred Goldstein. Both books have been read by Marxists around the world.In that spirit, today we want to open up a discussion among the new generation of young activists and veteran fighters about who the working class is today, what its biggest problems are, and what is the best way to reach it with a Marxist-Leninist perspective.As communists in the U.S., where imperialism grew up on the labor of African slaves and the theft of Indigenous lands, we try to keep this statement by Marx, from the first volume of “Capital,” always in mind: “Labor in the white skin can never free itself as long as labor in the Black skin is branded.”In the era of Donald Trump’s undisguised white supremacy and the resurgence of neo-fascist movements in the U.S. and Western Europe, the struggle against racism and for solidarity among all workers is key to advancing the struggle for socialism.So we say thank you, comrade Karl, for your contributions to human liberation, which have stood the test of time. The struggle is long, but victory is certain!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Portantino Sworn in as State Senator for District 25, Representing Pasadena

first_img Sen. Anthony J. Portantino and daughter SofiaToday, Sen. Anthony J. Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) joined other newly elected Senators in the 40-member upper house of the State Legislature. With his daughter Sofia by his side, Portantino was sworn in as the State Senator for the 25th District.“I’m honored to join the California State Senate and appreciate the many friends who helped me get here. I’m excited to be in a position to work on issues that are important to my district,” commented Portantino, who previously represented the area as Assembly Member for the 44th District. Portantino used the first day of the legislative session to promote three key legislative priorities.Portantino introduced SB 25, which seeks to create a plan to fully integrate a guaranteed K–14 education. In the Assembly, Portantino was a champion for greater cooperation between community colleges and high schools. SB 25 takes these efforts further, creating a complete K–14 education model in place of separate K–12 and postsecondary education models.“At a time when our economy demands that our students are better prepared, it is imperative that our education model changes with the times,” added Portantino.Always focused on “good government” reform and transparency, Portantino reintroduced SB 24, which updates the Political Reform Act to create better and more accurate financial disclosure requirements for elected representatives.“Looking at Washington, it is clear that it can be hard to get elected leaders to recognize the importance of transparency. I hope that with all the recent focus on conflict of interest, now is the time for California to lead by example and embrace greater disclosure,” commented Portantino.Portantino also introduced SB 23 to extend necessary funding for California’s Umbilical Cord Blood Collection Program. Portantino created the Cord Blood program while in the Assembly but its funding is set to sunset next year. SB 23 extends the funding to continue the important public health program for another decade. Because of Portantino earlier efforts, the University of California Davis Hospital has been storing cord blood stem cells and using them to cure leukemia and other blood-related diseases.“Saving stem cells and curing cancer go hand in hand, and I’m very excited to have found a bi-partisan effort to aid that cause. It was very important to me that I begin my time in the State Senate, on issues that save lives and have significant impacts,” concluded Portantino.Sen. Portantino represents about 930,000 people in the 25th Senate District, which includes Burbank, Sunland-Tujunga, Shadow Hills, Atwater Village, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Bradbury, Duarte, San Dimas, Glendora, La Verne, Claremont, and Upland.

Council speaker proposes overhaul of land use process

first_imgMessage* Full Name* City Council speaker Corey Johnson (Getty; iStock)For decades, politicians and advocates have tried and failed to take a more comprehensive approach to land use decisions in the city. But now the City Council speaker himself has mapped out a plan.Corey Johnson released a report Wednesday calling for a 10-year, citywide planning framework that sets long-term goals for housing, transportation, public space and other community needs.It also adds opportunities for the public to weigh in on what happens in their neighborhoods. The speaker is expected to introduce related legislation Thursday.The plan gives City Council members broader authority to set the long-term future of their districts, but ostensibly takes away their de facto ability to kill applications submitted through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.Read moreMenchaca opposes Industry City rezoningIndustry City said it agreed to Council member’s demandsHere’s how Industry City’s controversial rezoning unraveled Email Address* Under the proposal, a newly named Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability — currently the Office of Sustainability — would draft a long-term plan that includes land-use scenarios for each district.Borough presidents, community boards and members of the public could express opinions on the scenarios, but the City Council would ultimately decide the plan for each district.Ulurp, the city’s seven-month land use review process, would also no longer require all rezonings to get City Council approval. But there is a loophole that would let the chamber retain its control over the process.Applications would have to include a “statement of alignment” demonstrating how the proposal fits into the district’s approved land-use scenario. The City Planning Commission would then determine if the application is in step with that scenario.The loophole is that in cases where the City Council disagrees with City Planning’s decision, members could still take up the proposal — and reject it.The overall idea, according to the report, is to incentivize developers to submit applications that align with the scenario to avoid additional approval steps. But it is not clear why City Council members would forgo their chance to vote on it. Land use is a critical source of members’ power.When asked during a press conference on Wednesday if Council members would give up their final vote on Ulurp applications, Johnson said it was difficult to say.“Members have different viewpoints,” he said, adding that the conversations leading up to the Ulurp process would likely lead to fewer applications being heard by the council. “There would have been a proactive process that I would think Council members would be engaged with,” he said.City Council members have been asking for more power over the process, not less. They often complain that their options are limited when developers pitch projects, especially when there is an as-of-right alternative that the member deems unacceptable.Developers would also potentially be able to avoid certain environmental reviews if their plan complies with a broader environmental impact statement completed as part of the city’s long-term plan. An environmental impact statement, currently required for many projects, adds months and huge costs to projects, and limits developers’ ability to change plans.The proposal also seeks to reform the city’s “piecemeal approach to planning,” saying that it has “largely neglected brown and Black neighborhoods, immigrants, people with disabilities, and low-income New Yorkers.”Mayor Bill de Blasio’s affordable housing initiative, specifically rezonings under the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program, has been repeatedly criticized for targeting low-income neighborhoods while not asking wealthy enclaves to shoulder more of the city’s affordable housing burden.The report calls for the formation of a steering committee which would create a series of citywide goals that would be required under the City Charter to “reduce and eliminate disparities in access to opportunity and the distribution of resources and development across race, geography, and socioeconomic status.”The steering committee and sustainability office would also create district-level targets to “correct segregationist policies.”The proposal, however, doesn’t outline specific zoning legislation or policies to rectify the maladies it identifies in the city’s current system. Much of the heavy lifting is left to the early stages of the framework, which include studies on the city’s most urgent needs.The report recognizes that since at least 1930, multiple attempts have been made to address city planning in a more holistic way — with little success. The report says the Bloomberg administration’s PlaNYC 2030, which also set out to create a more comprehensive long-term planning process, fell short because it lacked “specificity with respect to land use, zoning, and capital planning.”Passage of Johnson’s plan is far from guaranteed. It would, at the least, require the approval of city legislation and likely changes to the City Charter. Johnson is expected to discuss the report and proposed legislation during a press conference Wednesday afternoon.At the same time as the conference, several groups are planning to protest outside City Hall, calling for a pause to all remote Ulurp meetings. According to the Village Sun, the groups are opposed to the administration’s proposed rezoning of Soho and Noho.Contact Kathryn Brenzelcenter_img Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tagscorey johnsonPoliticsulurplast_img read more

Lukoil, Gazprom and Tatneft to jointly develop hard-to-recover reserves in Russia

first_img The Orenburg Oblast region in Russia. (Credit: Gazprom Neft PJSC) Russian firms Lukoil, Gazprom Neft and Tatneft have signed an agreement to jointly explore and produce hard-to-recover hydrocarbons in the Orenburg Region.Through a new joint venture, named New Oil Production Technologies, the three parties will share technologies and innovations to develop conventional oil reserves.The joint venture will also work on developing economically viable technologies for commercial development of hard-to-recover reserves at the Savitsky and Zhuravlyovsky license areas in the Volga-Ural region.Pilot development of Savitsky and Zhuravlevsky blocks to commence in 2024Each party will hold one-third interest in the assets portfolio of the newly established joint venture, which plans to begin pilot development of the Savitsky and Zhuravlevsky blocks in 2024.Gazprom Neft deputy CEO for exploration and production and management board deputy chairman Vadim Yakovlev said: “We are continuing to develop what is, for us, a key region for our business — the Orenburg Oblast.“This new joint venture will be the first such example in Russia of three leading vertically integrated oil companies bringing together their resources and skills to address the complex technological challenges involved in developing hard-to-recover hydrocarbon reserves.”Covering an area of 900km2, the Savitsky license area is located in Buzuluk and Grachyovka Districts, Orenburg Region.At the area, the partners have drilled the first exploratory and appraisal well of six wildcat and exploratory wells with horizontal completion.The geophysical survey is being carried out by the joint venture including sampling and analysis of cores and fluids, scientific researches and field non-seismic studies.Located in Buzuluk District, the 123km2 Zhuravlyovsky license area borders with the Savitsky license area, and features the currently suspended Zhuravlyovskoye field.Gazprom Neft expects the license area to contain deposits of hard-to-recover hydrocarbons.In April 2020, Gazprom Neft and UAE-based Mubadala Petroleum have signed a memorandum of cooperation to jointly develop new technologies focused on oil production, and digitalisation of production processes. The three parties will share technologies and innovations to develop conventional oil reserveslast_img read more
