Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage

first_imgFriday Sep 24, 2010 Friday Funnies – Crouch, touch, slap, engage Unfortunately there hasn’t been time for Magners League or Aviva Premiership highlights this week but hopefully tomorrow I’ll get some time to post something. It is Friday though, so time for a laugh with the latest Friday Funnies clip. This one comes from Southland’s meeting with Waikato in the ITM Cup in New Zealand, a match that was low scoring but resulted in Southland continuing their winning run in the tournament. You can view highlights of the match here, in yesterdays post. This particular moment was picked up by a forum member who watched the game live and took the time to send in the request. If he’d not done that, classic moments like this would be missed so please try do the same when you see something happen that you think would be good to share. There’s been a lot of debate lately about the way refs are handling the scrum engagement, with refs down south in New Zealand and South Africa deliberately taking ages to do the call, while up North it’s more regulation and what we’re used to. There are critics of both, as some say the old way isn’t steady enough, while others don’t like the slow, delayed calls down South. What the delay did produce however was Southland prop Chris King doing something you won’t often see at scrumtime. Somehow the ref spotted it though, penalising him and allowing Waikato to snatch three points in a tight game. We can’t condone it, but it was hilarious to watch. Have a great weekend, and keep your hands to yourself.

A residential building located halfway up a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Thick clumps of trees that grow along the slope of the land surrounding the house cast a series of organic silhouettes that make the slope seem to come alive. We decided that the appropriate form to build would be as low-lying as possible, while also allowing the architecture to become embedded in the surrounding landscape according to the contours of the terrain. This would allow us to minimize the impact of the building on its environment. The design of the walls plays an important role in creating the overall sense of presence that a building projects. As such, we also tried to prevent the walls of this house from becoming surfaces that would obstruct or impede movement and sight.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaGlass and screens along the enclosed perimeter of the house gives the second floor of this residence a certain transparency. Slender, deep-set eaves cast deep shadows on the facade of the building, softening the impact of the building’s physical presence in relation to its environment. The various components of the building were structured in order to allow the inhabitants to enjoy a different view of the outside on each level. The first floor features a stone floor and concrete walls finished with plaster, while the Japanese paper screens fitted inside the glass reflect the shadows of plants and trees. The hard-edged surfaces and finishes coexist with the soft, muted tones of the Japanese paper.

A series of wide eaves stand between the outside of the house and the interior, which is articulated into smaller sections by a row of pillars. Going down the staircase-shaped terrace allows one to gradually draw closer to the outdoor landscape. The section that divides the two different elevations on this floor provides seating throughout, functioning as a unique Japanese-style verandah (engawa). A steel-reinforced concrete structure was used for the second floor, and a Vierendeel bridge structure allowed us to float a large, thin roof on top. The pillars consist of square cylindrical poles (measuring 75mm across) made of solid iron arranged in a densely packed formation using wooden modules (900 x 1800mm). By creating several areas of low-level rigidity, we were able to do away with the need for braces.Save this picture!DiagramsProject gallerySee allShow lessShelter International Architectural Design CompetitionArticlesYale-NUS College Campus / Pelli Clarke Pelli ArchitectsArticles Share Wind-dyed house / acaa Japanlast_img read more
