These facts have affected the way people has lived and built in this area, from the so-called “casas-cueva” (caves converted into houses) to the wide use of clay-bricks in its well known cathedral. Thus, this social housing proposal stands on a faceted and sculpted volume through large folded surfaces.  Save this picture!© Fernando Alda This volume has been hollowed out as if making a cavern, and therefore to allow the natural light to carve and mould the empty space. The apartments are split into three different stripes: The outer stripe (facade) works as a filter for sunlight using deep cells for the windows. The deepness of this stripe creates a storage area for the apartments. The intermediate stripe holds all the different rooms of the apartments. It would be possible to create a continuous space with no individual rooms.  Save this picture!© Fernando Alda The last stripe works as a supporting facility, where kitchens and bathrooms can satisfy the proper activities of living. The ground floor has been hollowed, eliminating some apartments to connect the different internal voids, in order to perceive a continuous and sculpted space inside the building. Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessQingdao Harborfront Redevelopment Proposal / EE&K a Perkins Eastman CompanyUnbuilt ProjectLiving Landscape: The Great Fen Visiting Center Proposal / Atelier CMJNUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Calle Concepción Arenal, 2, 18500 Guadix, Granada, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

This project is part of the reconversion of the Calberson warehouses, the cornerstone of the bigger urban renewal project in Paris’ north-eastern corner. Plot S2 enjoys an enviable location at the heart of the ensemble. At first separate, the two buildings became Siamese twins. The project stretches along the south-facing side of the plot and stands on a base dedicated to businesses and shops. Above the base, the projected volume has wonderful views to the south over Paris and quality sunlight, while on the north is a broad longitudinal courtyard occupied by private and public gardens.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaThe buildings are accessed via a tree-lined promenade that runs along the south side. Two glassed-in hallways curl around like a long ribbon that decorates the businesses located on the ground floor and the mezzanine. A sight-line is located on the three upper floors in the building’s central section.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaThis hyphen is organized like a crystal jewel box for highlighting a hanging garden filled with trees and bushes clearly visible from the street. The interior walls are decorated by a play of big over-hanging balconies. A large metal frame rises in a cantilever to the first floor and mirrors the northern side of the warehouses. The perforated and sheared aluminium plates give the building’s surface a lacy look. A genuine work of silver-smithing, the building can be proud of its being a worthy descendent of Art Nouveau.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaUseThe ground plan breaks with the usual rigidity of block-plan architecture.

Rail operator back on track with spend plan

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. This week’s stock market reviewRailtrack has acted to avoid fresh confrontations with the rail regulator byannouncing plans to inject £2.5bn into modernising the UK’s ageing railwaysduring the next financial year from 1 April. The company delighted the City last week with the size of its proposedinfrastructure spend, which the Railtrack said is a record budget for one year.The news pushed the stock price up by about 10 per cent. The chances of it being fined over punctuality in the near future may havediminished, as the company revealed it has already cut delays by a significantamount. Railtrack admitted that it is not out of the woods yet but pledged tomaintain service improvements. Much of the new money will be earmarked for track, stations, bridges andsignaling works. Many analysts believe the regulator will soften its approachwhen details of the ongoing regulatory review are published in July.WPP finds there’s just no pleasing some people WPP Group, the UK advertising empire and third largest in the world, failedto impress the City last week with its good results for 1999. Despite unveilingexcellent figures for the year and brilliant prospects with a lot of newbusiness initiatives and ambitious profits targets, WPP saw its share priceslump by more than 12 per cent. The stock, which traded at £11.55 before the sharp fall, had been widelyperceived as overpriced. It seems nothing the company could have done topersuade the markets otherwise and the discomfort felt by some analysts haveprompted a sell recommendation to be slapped on the stock with a target priceof £8.Words speak louder then actions in global marketsWords can be more effective than action in the stock markets. When AlanGreenspan, chairman of the US Federal Reserve, warned last week about the needto control US domestic demand, stock markets around the world became veryvolatile, albeit temporarily. Similarly, when Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown said cuttingInternet costs would help develop a knowledge economy, the City seems to havemisconstrued his comments as a statement of government policy. The contents ofthe Chancellor’s speech caused some concern among analysts and for the secondtime in as many weeks BT’s stock price was badly hit.Banks’ prospects are back in the blackGreen shoots of recovery appeared in the banking sector last week when AbbeyNational and Halifax stock prices jumped, hard on the heels of the Woolwichduring the previous week. Abbey National, the UK’s second-largest mortgagelender, disclosed a healthy rise in profits and also announced its e-commerceambitions, in particular its on-line bank Cahoot. Halifax is developing anon-line car and home insurance venture called esure.

MPs turn up heat on letting agents over ‘No DSS’ adverts

first_imgEstate agency group LSL and Hunters are to send senior executives to give evidence at a parliamentary investigation into the growing scandal of agents and landlords who stipulate ‘No DSS’ within online adverts.Following last week’s announcement by housing minister Heather Wheeler that her department is to investigate the practice, the Department of Work and Pensions’ Select Committee has also convened a day of evidence gathering on 20th March to quiz experts.One of these is to be Helen Martin, (left) Risk and Governance Director at LSL. She was promoted to the position in May 2018, a few months before Your Move branches were found by undercover investigators from Shelter and the National Housing Federation declining to let properties to tenants on benefits.Glynis Frew of Hunters, the CEO of another agent named by the research, is also to give evidence. Other letting agents who were caught up in the undercover sting but who are not attending include Ludlow Thompson, Haart, Bridgfords, Dexters and Fox & Sons.Helen Martin’s evidence giving at the Commons’ Select Committee should therefore make interesting reading, particularly because at the time the company said it did accept DSS applicants for properties but that “it’s ultimately the landlord’s decision whether to let to those receiving benefits”.Other witnesses due to speak at the hearings include Greg Beales from Shelter, Paul Wooton from lender the Nationwide and Lloyd Cochrane from National Westminster Bank.Recent research among property portals found that approximately a fifth of all online lettings adverts featured the phrase ‘No DSS’ in their property description text.Read more about ‘No DSS’ adverts.haart Glynis Frew NO DSS LSL Helen Martin Ludlow Thompson Bridgfords Dexters Fox & Sons March 13, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Australian Navy Takes Delivery of First MH-60R Helicopters from US

first_img December 11, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today Australian Navy Takes Delivery of First MH-60R Helicopters from US Industry news Australian Navy Takes Delivery of First MH-60R Helicopters from UScenter_img The Royal Australian Navy accepted the first two MH-60R helicopters from the U.S. Navy in a ceremony yesterday at the Lockheed Martin facility in Owego, N.Y.“The advanced anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare capabilities of the MH-60 Romeo are a game-changer in shifting the advantage from the submarine to the helicopter, which is essential in today’s maritime security environment,” said Rear Admiral CJ Jaynes, program executive officer for Air Anti-Submarine Warfare, Assault and Special Mission Programs, which oversees the U.S. Navy’s H-60 program office. “We are excited to extend our partnership with the Royal Australian Navy through the delivery of these advanced helicopters.”Manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft and provided with advanced mission systems and sensors by Lockheed Martin, the MH-60R is already operational and deploying as the primary U.S. Navy anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare system for open-ocean and littoral zones. The U.S. Navy answered the Australian Defence Force’s requirement for a fleet of 24 new-generation, multi-role naval combat aircraft with the proven MH-60R helicopters. The entire fleet will be delivered incrementally by the end of 2016.“The Seahawk Romeo is an evolutionary step forward from the Seahawk ‘Classic’ it replaces. The Romeo builds on the known and trusted Seahawk air vehicle, incorporating state-of-the-art sensors in an open architecture, integrated mission system. The Romeo is a potent maritime combat helicopter,” said Rear Adm. Tony Dalton who heads the Australian Defence Organisation’s Helicopter Systems Division. “We look forward to sharing in the U.S. Navy’s ongoing technology upgrades and continuing to build upon the proven capabilities.”“MH-60R helicopters host the complete package of sensors and systems aboard the helicopter to address today’s increasing submarine and surface warfare threats,” said Lockheed Martin Vice President of Aviation Systems Dan Spoor. “We are honored to partner with the U.S. Navy and the Royal Australian Navy to deliver these capabilities.”In addition to the MH-60R’s unmatched capability in its primary mission areas of anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare, it also has the capability for secondary missions such as search and rescue, vertical replenishment, naval surface fire support, logistics support, personnel transport, medical evacuation, and VHF/UHF/link communication relay.[mappress]Press Release, December 11, 2013; Image: Lockheed Martin Share this articlelast_img read more

Firm wins HHS contract for new flu vaccine technology

first_imgJun 23, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The US government has granted Protein Sciences Corp. (PSC) of Meriden, Conn., a $35 million contract to develop its technique for making influenza vaccines by growing flu virus proteins in insect cells, an approach said to be faster than traditional methods.”The technology has advanced in recent years to the point that we believe it could help meet a surge in demand for US-based vaccine for seasonal and pandemic flu,” Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a press release today.PSC’s approach involves extracting a gene from a flu virus and inserting it into a baculovirus, which infects insects but not people. The recombinant baculoviruses multiply quickly in insect cells, producing many copies of the flu gene, and the cells are purified and used to make a vaccine, HHS said.The method may make it possible to produce vaccine candidates, vaccine for clinical trials, and commercial-scale amounts of vaccine faster than with the traditional method of growing flu viruses in chicken eggs, the agency said. It said the insect cells can be frozen and stored indefinitely, contributing to faster large-scale production.If the technology is licensed by the Food and Drug Administration, the company will be required to establish a domestic manufacturing capability. The contract calls for the company to be prepared to make a finished vaccine within 12 weeks after a pandemic onset and to make 50 million doses within 6 months after pandemic onset, according to HHS.The contract could be extended up to 5 years at a total cost of about $147 million, HHS officials said.PSC has said it is using its baculovirus and insect-cell technology to make a vaccine for the novel H1N1 flu virus. On Jun 15 the firm announced it had begun manufacturing the vaccine, called PanBlok, and estimated it would be able to make 100,000 doses per week.But the vaccine, like any other, will require extensive animal and human testing and regulatory approval before it can be marketed.The HHS contract award came a day after a report that creditors of PSC had filed a petition to force the company into bankruptcy in an effort to collect on their claims.Bloomberg News reported that creditors filed an involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against the company yesterday in US Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. The petition listed claims totaling $11.7 million, the story said.Most of the debt—$11.5 million—is owed to Emergent BioSolutions Inc., Bloomberg reported. Emergent, which makes the only anthrax vaccine licensed in the United States, had agreed to buy most of PSC’s assets last year. On May 1 of this year, PSC announced it had reached a deal with Emergent that set terms for repaying a loan, terminated the 2008 asset purchase agreement, and resolved outstanding litigation.See also: HHS Jun 23 announcement of contract with PSChttp://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2009pres/06/20090623c.htmlMay 1 CIDRAP News story “Path to swine flu vaccine has major hurdles”last_img read more
