The setting of this project is the typical generic landscape of most Andalusian towns’ periphery, the result of the kind of urban planning that occurred during the Spanish construction boom. The building takes shape to adequately insert itself into an area of diverse residential typologies, urban uses, and topographical and volumetric transitions.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinFiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaStonesNeolithSintered Stone – Arctic White – Colorfeel CollectionEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreThe design adjusts to tight budgetary and regulatory conditions. The housing units and their assembly is simple and repetitive. The typology itself follows a single-bay, cross-ventilated layout. Two geometrically defined blocks are generated, which optimize both the built surface area and its use. The clarity expressed in the floor plans, crossed with the planning code, allowed flexibility when it came to composing the final volumes, hence the materialization of a generic block was avoided.Save this picture!Floor PlanWe split the building up and tiered it following the slope of the ring road, approximating its size to that of the preexisting dwellings. We fragmented it further on its uppermost floor to create a smaller housing typology and to provide rhythm to the longitudinal elevation facing what the future bus station. This adaptive approach was also applied to the composition of the openings on the different façades. Their sizes, proportion and amount are maximized, allowing us to have two differently oriented window openings in each living room. Repetition and variation define the building’s compositional traits.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe general layout produces a series of intermediate spaces —potential meeting places: a small public space, a set-back entryway and a patio which is gazed upon by the two galleries. These passageways, which accommodate the stairwells and elevators, have also been conceived as intermediate spaces. They are semi-open and have their own atmosphere and identity, produced by the small perforations which dot the space with light and by the large circular openings that, in a surprising twist, characterize the interior façades of the building.Save this picture!Floor PlanAlso as an interpretation of this cityscape, we carefully worked on the appearance of the rooftop elements. In an act of reconciliation we underlined their presence, using a clearly differentiated language from that of the white volumes of the building itself.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaVolumes, serial assembly, rooftop elements, circular perforations and openings as well as details in the window openings, the combination of whites and grays, or the lettering used make up the building’s identity.Save this picture!SectionWe were commissioned this project after winning a competition.

Nine newspapers resume publishing after week-long protest against harassment

first_img Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News Organisation Resistance by pro-Ouattara and independent mediaThe group of newspapers that suspended publication today in protest at the “unacceptable harassment” consisted of eight opposition publications – Le Nouveau Réveil, L’Expression, Le Patriote, Le Jour Plus, Le Mandat, Le Démocrate and Nord-Sud – and one independent one, L’Intelligent d’Abidjan.All belong to an alliance called the “Newspaper Collective for Safeguarding the Gains of 28 November 2010,” which issued a joint statement “vigorously rejecting the CNP’s illegal decisions” and “noting with great concern the continuation of judicial and police harassment by means of repeated summonses to journalists to report to the criminal investigation department.”The Collective also deplored the disappearance of Ouattara Yacouba, a driver for the daily Nord-Sud, who was kidnapped and has not been seen since. RSF_en Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire News October 16, 2020 Find out more Côte d’IvoireAfrica News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Photo : AFP to go further Nine privately-owned newspapers – Le Patriote, Le Mandat, L’Intelligent d’Abidjan, Le Démocrate, L’Expression, Le Jour Plus, Nord-Sud, Le Nouveau Réveil and Le Repère – resumed publishing yesterday, a week after suspending publication temporarily in a joint protest against threats and harassment by officials allied to Laurent Gbagbo.The climate for the media nonetheless continues to be poisonous in Côte d’Ivoire, as evidenced by a rocket-propelled grenade attack on the headquarters of the Fraternité Matin daily on the evening of 5 March. It caused no damage.Local retransmission of France 24 is still suspended, while retransmission of the BBC and RFI has been suspended since the start of March. and two Télé Notre Patrie journalists who were arrested on 28 January are still being held in Abidjan’s main prison ._______________________________________01-03-2011- Amid continuing political deadlock, nine newspapers suspend publishing and RTI transmitter attackedNine privately-owned newspapers suspended publication today until further notice in protest against threats and harassment by officials who support Laurent Gbagbo. The move came two days after the main transmission centre of Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI), the state-owned broadcaster controlled by the Gbagbo camp, was attacked by supporters of Gbagbo’s rival Alassane Ouattara during clashes in the Abidjan district of Abobo.At the same time, a printing press employee of La Refondation, the company that publishes the daily Notre Voie, was beaten and hacked to death yesterday in the south Abidjan suburb of Koumassi. Notre Voie supports Gbagbo’s party, the Ivorian Popular Front (FPL).“Our concern for press freedom in Côte d’Ivoire is mounting by the day,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We offer our support to the privately-owned newspapers that are being hounded and threatened and have decided to denounce a situation that has become impossible for the press.”The organization added: “We fear that the repressive measures adopted by the National Press Council and the media war being waged between Gbagbo and Ouattara will result in the already very polarized media becoming even more radicalized.”New version of National Press Council moves into actionIn a communiqué read out on RTI on 25 February , the National Press Council (CNP) announced the suspension of the pro-Ouattara daily Le Nouveau Réveil for one week (six issues). Three other pro-Ouattara dailies, Le Patriote, Nord-Sud and Le Jour Plus, were fined between 1 and 2 million CFA francs (1,500 to 3,000 euros).The authorities accuse these newspapers of publishing “unbearable and shocking images” and comments “defending violence” and “revolt” in their coverage of clashes between pro-Ouattara and pro-Gbagbo demonstrators in Abidjan.In a statement sent to Reporters Without Borders, Le Nouveau Réveil director-general Denis Kah Zion said his newspaper had decided to accept its suspension only “to preserve the lives of its employees.”The CNP’s governing body was fired and replaced at the start of February by Gbagbo supporters. Reporters Without Borders condemned the move at the time as “an arbitrary and politically-motivated move (…) liable to set Côte d’Ivoire back 20 years in terms of respect for media freedom .”“Laurent Gbagbo’s government has just taken over the CNP, a regulatory body known for being serious and impartial,” Reporters Without Borders said in a release at the time. “Given the political affiliation of the people co-opted by the Gbagbo camp to replace its leadership, we fear the CNP will cease to perform its regulatory function and will henceforth be used to punish opposition journalists and media harshly, and to protect media that are loyal to Gbagbo.” Côte d’IvoireAfrica November 27, 2020 Find out more Reports RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections October 29, 2020 Find out more RTI transmitter attacked, pro-Gbagbo newspapers torn upShots were fired at RTI’s main transmission centre, located in the Abidjan neighbourhood of Abobo, during clashes between pro-Gbagbo security forces and Ouattara supporters on the night of 26 February, resulting in the interruption of RTI’s over-the-air signal in the capital.“Although this broadcaster is currently an all-out propaganda mouthpiece for the Gbagbo camp, this kind of incident will not help to defuse tension,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Regardless of the context, we condemn armed attacks on news media and transmitters.”Today, members of the Houphouëtiste Rally for Democracy and Peace (RHDP) attacked news kiosks and newspaper vendors, tearing up copies of pro-Gbagbo newspapers, which are continuing to publish. Threats were also made against Edipresse, a company that distributes newspapers.

Limerick businessman jailed for money laundering

first_imgThe Limerick man was jailed for money laundering and drugs offencesA LIMERICK man whose business folded during the economic crash has been jailed for two years for laundering €73,000 and storing €53,000 worth of drugs in what Gardaí described as a “highly sophisticated grow house”.At Limerick Circuit Court this week, Kenneth Moore (46) of Portcrusha, Montpellier pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis and money laundering contrary to Section 7 of the Criminal Justice Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Act.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up On June 12, 2013, Gardaí searched a property in county Limerick where they found two shed-like containers. One had been converted into a sophisticated grow house and the other had compartments filled with cannabis behind a false wall.Drugs, cash and a counting machine were found at a stables nearby.Judge Tom O’Donnell was told that 14 cannabis plants found on the property were valued at €800 each while the harvested cannabis had a street value of €37,000. The cash, which was in two bundles, totalled €73,000.Describing Kenneth Moore as a “storehouse man for drugs and the cash”, Judge O’Donnell said that people who get involved in this type of offence must be prepared to accept the circumstances of their actions.As a result of his business failing, he had substantial debts and fell in to difficulty when he was unable to repay money he borrowed from “an unsavoury source”.He said that the sentencing regime provided for a presumptive mandatory minimum prison sentence of ten years, but the court could deviate from that if the circumstances made it unjust to impose such a sentence.There was a substantial amount of drugs and cash involved but Mr Moore had cooperated and was said to have been “at the lower end of the pyramid”. He also had a substantial debt burden and was under duress.After imposing a two year prison term on the drugs and money laundering charges, Judge O’Donnell suspended a second two year sentence for a period of six years.
