Skene Catling de la Peña were asked simply to respond to a site in the grounds of Waddesdon, a large Estate in Buckinghamshire, with a building initially intended for the curator of a new archive building. The Flint House consists of three bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen, library and study, with a self-contained annex studio, of 465 and 115 sqm respectively.Save this picture!© James MorrisSave this picture!© James MorrisFlint is a quartz related to obsidian, and is found only in the chalk seam that extends from the south coast to Norfolk. Flint is an ancient material related to jasper, obsidian and onyx; a hard, cryptocrystalline form of quartz found in one geological seam in the UK, and in abundance on the surface of the ploughed fields surrounding the site. The architecture was generated from this Neolithic material, the geology and the immediate ecosystem.Save this picture!© James MorrisThe site is a remote island, a strange, still, anomaly of wilderness within highly cultivated agricultural fields. The Flint House and Annex form two stepped, linear monoliths that appear pulled from the landscape as geological extrusions of infinite age, with the rough texture and rawness of their surroundings. The buildings are both viewing platforms and condensing lenses for the surrounding panorama.Save this picture!© James MorrisThe lowest courses of flint are blackest and rough hewn with large gallets in black mortar joints. The walls and terrazzo roofs fade in six coloured strata as the flint progresses up the building, from galleted black through finely knapped grays and finally into courses of long, narrow blocks of white chalk, where the building appears to dissolve into the sky. The watercourse is lined in raw flint nodules, used as it is found in the ground.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe programme moves from the utilitarian and open spaces at the centre of the site to more contemplative, private rooms buried in the existing trees at the far ends of each building. There are plays with old typologies, techniques and materials; the internal ‘river’ reinvents the historic grotto, but using raw nodules of flint, still covered in chalk, with their ancient underwater origins. It carves a mysterious, internal cave through the structure that separates the public spaces from the more introspective, with views across water, through fire and expanded in reflections. The ceiling of black glass mirrors dark water below, creating an impression of infinite space, drawing the landscape deep into the core of the building, mixing memory and desire.Save this picture!© James MorrisCollaborationThe Flint House was conceived as a larger project, a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’, where the initial architectural concept could be explored and expanded through collaboration with other media, to create a synthesis of the arts as a ‘total artwork’. The architects and client invited artists working with photography to create alternate readings and recordings of the architecture as it developed and was constructed, thereby questioning conventional architectural representation. The responses varied from engaging directly with the materiality of the building, to recording the individuals who constructed it, to reflecting on the client and the commission itself by restaging artworks from the Rothschild collection at Waddesdon. These responses transformed the ephemeral moments of the process of making architecture that are otherwise lost, and fixed them forever. Music is the ultimate abstraction of architecture. Yet at the same time, it is uniquely capable of reinforcing the underlying architectural narrative and creating a new spatial and temporal experience.Save this picture!© James MorrisProject gallerySee allShow lessAre “Public Votes” in Architecture a Bad Thing?Architecture NewsIstanbul Community Market Competition Winners AnnouncedArchitecture News Share eHRW, Adam Redgrove, Stephen Haskins Area:  580 m² Photographs United Kingdom Architects: Skene Catling de la Peña Area Area of this architecture project Flint House / Skene Catling de la PeñaSave this projectSaveFlint House / Skene Catling de la Peña+ 34 Share “COPY” Flint House / Skene Catling de la Peñacenter_img Spellman Knowlton Lighting Design, Claire Spellman, Christopher Knowlton “COPY” Mechanical + Electrical Engineers: Landscape Architecture CopyLandscape Architecture, Houses•Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom Lighting Consultants: Kai Salman-Lord, Max Fordham Structural Engineers: Projects Photographs:  James Morris CopyAbout this officeSkene Catling de la PeñaOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsLandscape ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesBuckinghamshireUnited KingdomPublished on August 06, 2015Cite: “Flint House / Skene Catling de la Peña” 06 Aug 2015.

Prime minister takes legal action against two journalists for “insults”

first_img Organisation Receive email alerts SenegalAfrica November 27, 2020 Find out more News February 1, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prime minister takes legal action against two journalists for “insults” In a letter to Prime Minister Mame Madior Boye, RSF protested the claim brought against Ousseynou Nar Guèye and Cheikh Touré. “If the journalists are sentenced, press freedom will be the victim of your lack of self-ridicule. It is important that Senegal, starting with its dignitaries, accept the popular press’s mocking remarks, even if they are in poor taste,” stated Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary-general. RSF urged the prime minister to withdraw her complaint. News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information On 1 August 2001, Guèye, Touré and Souleymane Ndiaye, Le Tract’s editor-in-chief, were arrested for questioning. That same day, all copies of Le Tract were confiscated by the police. The newspaper’s 1 August edition included a front-page photomontage of Prime Minister Boye in a swimsuit. The three journalists were released the next morning. The computer used to prepare the photomontage was seized at the time and has yet to be returned by the police. According to information collected by RSF, Prime Minister Boye has taken legal action against Guèye, Le Tract newspaper’s publication director, for “insults to a member of the government” and “distribution of false news through the use of false or fabricated documents”. Touré, Guèye’s computer graphics technician, is being taken to court for “complicity”. On 31 January 2002, the two journalists appeared before the examining judge in a Dakar court. Guèye’s next hearing is scheduled for 11 February.center_img to go further RSF_en January 8, 2021 Find out more RSF decries exceptional press freedom violations in Senegal SenegalAfrica RSF asks Senegal to amend its new press law News Follow the news on Senegal Reports March 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Monterrey reporter becomes 5th journalist murdered in Mexico in 2018

first_img Follow the news on Mexico News Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an impartial investigation into yesterday’s murder of Alicia Díaz González, the fifth Mexican journalist to be killed in 2018, and condemns what is now an unbearable climate for the media in Mexico. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses Violence Julio Cesar AGUILAR / AFP News Help by sharing this information to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alertscenter_img MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses Violence Organisation News Reports NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say RSF_en May 5, 2021 Find out more May 25, 2018 Monterrey reporter becomes 5th journalist murdered in Mexico in 2018 May 13, 2021 Find out more Díaz, 52, had only just been killed when her sons discovered her body yesterday morning in her home in Monterrey, the capital of the northern state of Nuevo León. It bore the marks of multiple blows, along with stab wounds to the back of her neck. As nothing was taken in the attack, everything suggests that she was the victim of a targeted killing.“All lines of investigation are open,” a Nuevo León judicial official said.Previously employed by the El Norte and La Moneda newspapers, Díaz had worked for the El Financiero newspaper since January, covering local business, real estate, taxation and public investment. Colleagues told Agence France-Presse that she did not cover “sensitive” stories.“Given the initial indications, the Nuevo León police and judicial authorities must prioritize the hypothesis that this execution-style killing was linked to the victim’s work and they must identify the instigators as soon possible,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“The list of journalists murdered in Mexico keeps on getting longer without any bold initiative by the government. The situation is becoming untenable and Mexico’s next president will have the immense responsibility of ending the spiral of violence.”The four other journalists who have been murdered this year in Mexico are Juan Carlos Huerta Martínez on 15 May, Leobardo Vázquez on 21 March, Pamika Montenegro on 5 February and Carlos Domínguez Rodríguez on 13 January.Ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, Mexico is deadlier for media personnel than any other country not at war.last_img read more

A new stratigraphy for the Latady Basin, Antarctic Peninsula: Part 1, Ellsworth Land Volcanic Group

first_imgThe Jurassic Mount Poster Formation of eastern Ellsworth Land, southern Antarctic Peninsula, comprises silicic ignimbrites related to intracontinental rifting of Gondwana. The identification of less voluminous basaltic and sedimentary facies marginal to the silicic deposits has led to a reclassification of the volcanic units into the Ellsworth Land Volcanic Group. This is formally subdivided into two formations: the Mount Poster Formation (silicic ignimbrites), and the Sweeney Formation (basaltic and sedimentary facies). The Mount Poster Formation rhyolites are an intracaldera sequence greater than 1 km in thickness. The basaltic and sedimentary facies of the Sweeney Formation are consistent with deposition in a terrestrial setting into, or close to, water. The geochemistry of the Mount Poster Formation is consistent with derivation of the intracaldera rhyolites from a long-lived, upper crustal magma chamber. The basalts of the Sweeney Formation are intermediate between asthenosphere- and lithosphere-derived magmas, with little or no subduction-modified component. The basalt could represent a rare erupted part of the basaltic underplate that acted as the heat source for local generation of the rhyolites. U–Pb ion microprobe zircon geochronology of samples from the Mount Poster Formation yield an average eruption age of 183.4±1.4 Ma. Analysis of detrital zircons from a Sweeney Formation sandstone suggest a maximum age of deposition of 183±4 Ma and the two formations are considered coeval. In addition, these ages are coincident with eruption of the Karoo-Ferrar Igneous Province in southern Africa and East Antarctica. Our interpretation of the Ellsworth Land Volcanic Group is consistent with the model that the Jurassic volcanism of Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula took place in response to intracontinental extension driven by arrival of a plume in that area.last_img read more

Eight Ole Miss basketball players kneel during national anthem

first_imgFebruary 23, 2019 /Sports News – National Eight Ole Miss basketball players kneel during national anthem Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailsshepard/iStock(OXFORD, Miss.) — Eight members of the Ole Miss men’s basketball team took a knee during the national anthem before the team’s game against Georgia on Saturday.As the two teams lined up on the court and the anthem began, six Rebels players knelt. Two more players dropped to one knee as the final line of the song played.A pair of pro-Confederate groups marched towards the university’s campus on Saturday, though it was not immediately clear that that was the reason for the players’ actions. The Clarion-Ledger reported that the groups were protesting Ole Miss’ discontinuation of former mascot Colonel Reb and other efforts to distance the school from Confederate heritage.Some student groups held counterprotests during the week. After the game, one of the kneeling players, Breein Tyree, told reporters that “the majority of it was just that we saw one of our teammates doing it and didn’t want him to be alone.”“We’re just tired of these hate groups coming to our school and portraying our campus like we have these hate groups in our actual school,” Tyree added.Head coach Kermit Davis supported his players, saying that they made “an emotional decision to show these people they’re not welcome on our campus, and we respect our players’ freedom and ability to choose that.”Davis had previously said — at his introductory press conference in March — that his team would be one “that respects the flag and the national anthem.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
