The starting point of the project answers to two clear situations: in one hand the plot is located in a suburban colony not yet consolidated, in the outskirts of Villarcayo, which does not have any significant value and with very few constraints but legal ones, linked to the accomplishment of the current standards, which mainly defined the heights, suitability for building and setbacks. And in the other hand, the owners, a young family identified with the contemporary architecture, they defined two questions: a house with just ground floor was a requirement in order to maximize his relationship with the garden and the project had to be unequivocally within a limited budget. Hence, the proposal, should answer, over other premises, to the “optimism” and to the “optimization” which were demanded by the owners, supposing those as the starting point, its “real context”. The program, relatively common, was defined with accuracy by the clients, it was divided basically in two categories: in one hand, a big sitting room and terrace with direct access to the garden and in the other hand, the definition of the most privates spaces, annexed, consisting in a main bedroom incorporating a bathroom, besides two bedrooms, another bathroom and a space for their children to study and play games, additionally kitchen and garage. At the same time, the plot, with a small size, topographically flat, with a substantially rectangular shape and with a single side having access to the street, the orientation north-south coincided with the diagonal, it does not exist any other remarkable characteristics of the physical environment.Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe project is aligned with the conditions and the taste of the customer, it expected the resolution of a modern space, domestic container, taking advantage of the pleasure provided by the close relationship with an own outdoor space and facilitated by the horizontal of a single floor. In short, the project seeks an adequate contemporary partnership between those spaces as something intrinsic to the way of life in a single family home versus different typologies. The proposal, due to the limited plot and dwelling, defines a home which is expanded incorporating the whole plot to the “living space”, surrounded by vegetation, which planted around the perimeter will grow until becoming the limit of the family life with the idea of making a bigger and open home. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe volume of the house has a compact development, assuring in such manner an adjusted proposal. The project is defined with a “no isotropic” organization seeking a situation which make its own difference in both directions. In one hand, blind on the sides where the plot is adjusted eliminating in this sense the limit of the house rejecting the presence of the nearest dwellings and keeping open both front sides, hierarchizing and qualifying the garden in two spaces of different character which allow in a direct way, to take advantage of the sun. The proposal shows a very clear organization of the program, almost synthetic, allowing to define as a scheme: the most private spaces are accommodated close to both blind concrete sides all along its length, making free the space in between, as an open “living” to the gardens, protected by the filter of the porch and seeking the orientation East_West and the close relationship with them. With this “central” disposition of the main space, the “living”, is assured unequivocally as a meeting place to build familiar relationship, where all the spaces of the house and garden met. The more private auxiliary areas are defined, with clear trace, with compact limits and compressed to the minimum, to make available as communal as much space as possible, translating the whole in a simple and free volume of contemporary figuration which suited with coherence to the requirements of the owners. Special mention require the bathrooms: they are crossed by courtyards bringing their basic needs and providing this extra of complexity to the global volume. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteTwo different types of spaces are defined; in one hand, those of the central space, which are retracted and winning in depth, defining the porch as habitable spaces which allow this glance, deep but discreet, of the outdoor space. In the other hand, those which are practiced on the compact limits of the auxiliary spaces, solved with “individual” character, scattered on the parquetted surface and practiced to the shutters remaining agglutinated at the pattern of those wooden panels, as material formula to not disturb the purity of the global volume. The different spaces of the central area, partially built without carpentry, make in several situations and perspectives, difficult to notice the seam between interior and exterior, remaining in that manner definitely tied in a direct way. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe house floats, it seems to be exempt following three guidelines. The physical: the plot is on a flooding area and with very little colonization, because of that it was advised to elevate the house. The spatial: the height difference allowed the pleasant dominant perspective from the interior to the garden, with innumerable references of the modern architecture. And the conceptual: the precise volume takes the ownership of the site as a pavilion, appears put on the garden, wishing to reveal its relationship with the people who lives over the space which is accepted, in summary identifying this paradox its “real context”. Save this picture!© Pedro PegenauteThe materials which define the volume, concrete and wood, are extended to the interior qualifying the domestic conditions, providing them with a natural comfort characterized by the warm aspect but at the same time dry of the materials. The continuity of the material and the texture of those elements change the perception of the spaces and transform the fact of living in a singular experience, keeping far of the popular and according with the type of live which pretended the ownership. Constructively, the concrete which defines the global volume, as an artifice, is incorporated in the interior defining the plane of floor and ceiling as exercise of minimums, with simplicity and coherence followed from the origin of the project being identified with the taste of the formal simplicity. The furniture of the central space, being incorporated to the architecture is transformed as part of it, works as diaphragm which guides the way to the privacy of the bedrooms and at the same time allows stretching the living space until the limits of the private. Finally, the careful study of the lighting, defines different scenographies, being designed to not disturb the purity of the space. In the same manner, the volume and the garden are inspired with the same criteria.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessEcontainer Bridge Competition Winning Proposal / Yoav Messer ArchitectsArticlesArchitecture of Necessity 2013 CompetitionArticles Share Architects: Pereda Pérez Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePereda Pérez ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodVillarcayoSpainPublished on January 24, 2013Cite: “House in Villarcayo / Pereda Pérez Arquitectos” [Vivienda Unifamiliar en Villarcayo / Pereda Pérez Arquitectos] 24 Jan 2013.

first_imgProtesters demand ‘Free Palestine,’ confrontNew York Gov. Cuomo at State Fair inSyracuse, Aug. 25. Syracuse, N.Y.Shouts of “Apartheid, no!” and “Free, free Palestine!” rang out at the gates of Syracuse’s Great New York State Fair, as crowds of workers and students from across the northeast U.S. and eastern Canada streamed through the main gate on Aug. 25. It was “Governor’s Day,” with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo present for opening day festivities.Demonstrators from eleven Palestinian support groups converged at the fair to denounce Cuomo’s June 5 executive order against the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, which targets apartheid Israel. Cuomo used his state power to order the creation of an “enemies list” of Palestinian supporters. Those on the list are denied partnerships and grants with state agencies unless they “renounce” their support for Palestinian human rights and BDS.Protesters interrupted Cuomo’s opening day speech, denouncing his anti-BDS order as an attempt to “bring McCarthyism back to New York state.” Politically organized boycotts are constitutionally protected in the U.S. A flier handed out to fairgoers pointed out that Cuomo is rewarding Israel for violations of international law and the massacres of Palestinians.The protest was a statewide effort with representation from Adalah-NY, CODEPINK, NYC Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine, the Columbia University Apartheid Divest Coalition, the Ithaca Committee for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace-Ithaca, Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City, Justice for Palestine-Syracuse Peace Council, New York Freedom to Boycott, the Palestine Solidarity Collective and Vegans Against the OccupationFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Receive email alerts Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom News El SalvadorAmericas Organisation Reporters Without Borders has mixed feelings about the guilty verdicts and sentences ranging from four to 30 years in prison that a court in San Salvador passed yesterday on 11 of the 31 people, mainly gang members, who were tried for the September 2009 murder of Franco-Spanish documentary film-maker Christian Poveda .“The sequence of events and the immediate motive seem clear but was a two-day trial sufficient to establish exactly who did what and to shed light on all the unexplained aspects of this case?” Reporters Without Borders said. “Did it reconstruct the entire story of what happened between Poveda and the young people who appeared in his film? And why was there such a big difference between the sentences requested by the prosecutors and those handed down?”The press freedom organization added: “We greet this verdict with a mixture of relief and frustration. It marks a victory in the fight against impunity but as an attempt to establish the truth, it may have been too hasty.”As instigators and perpetrators of Poveda’s murder, alleged gang leaders Luis Roberto “El Tiger” Vásquez Romero and José Alejandro “El Puma” Melara were each sentenced to 30 years in prison while a female associate, Keiry Geraldina Mallorga Álvarez, was given a 20-year sentence on a charge of complicity.Seven alleged gang members – Javier Amilcar Fuentes, Daniel Cabrera Flores, Juan Anastacio Jiménez, José Mateo Cruz, Armando Rivera, Carlos Peraza and Salvador Peraza – and a former policeman, Juan Napoleón Espinoza Pérez, were each sentenced to four years in prison on criminal association charges.The prosecution had requested 50-year jail terms for 30 defendants on charges of aggravated homicide, instigation and conspiracy, and 56 and a half years for Espinoza, the former policeman, on a charge of criminal association. Two other suspects were never found.Unanswered questionsThe testimony given during the two-day trial and reported in the Salvadoran press should be treated with considerable scepticism. Furthermore, the special court began the trial behind closed doors and did not allow journalists to attend until the second day.Poveda was accused of breaking his promise to provide financial help to the members of the “Mara 18” gang in exchange for being allowed to film them for 16 months for his documentary, La Vida Loca. The gang also allegedly felt betrayed when a pirated DVD version of the film began circulating. They claimed that Poveda had promised not to release the film in El Salvador and to edit out a couple of scenes that were compromising for some of the gang’s members.There is no longer any way of establishing whether Poveda really did promise La Vida Loca’s protagonists any financial aid. Claims of this kind are unfortunately often made to discredit a victim. The pirated DVD does not seem to be a credible motive inasmuch as Poveda had no interest in seeing a version of his film circulated and sold without his agreement. Who pirated it and with what purpose are questions that have yet to be answered.These developments clearly undermined the trust that had previously existed between Poveda and the gang members but fail to account for his murder. According to the prosecution, the decision to kill him was taken when Espinoza, who was then a policeman, told the gang that Poveda was acting a police informer against them. But what motive would Espinoza have for telling the gang this? Another unanswered question.According to the testimony given in court during the trial, 15 gang members met in a house on the outskirts of the capital on 25 August 2009 and sentenced Poveda to death in his absence. He was asked to come to a meeting five days later but was out of the country. The sentence was finally carried out on 2 September 2009 in La Campanera, the neighbourhood on the outskirts of the capital where La Vida Loca was filmed.“I have a meeting in La Campanera with four furious crazies,” he told Carole Solive, the film’s producer, and his close friend Alain Mingam, a member of the Reporters Without Borders board, shortly before his death.Despite its reservations about the outcome of this case, Reporters Without Borders is well aware of the difficulty of combating organized crime and rendering justice in such circumstances.

The Omani flagged dhow Nebarkad had been hijacked on 20th June off the coast of Oman, and was used by the pirates to attack merchant vessels in the Arabian Sea.The two day operation was the conclusion of a longer period in which a group of suspected pirates used dhows to conduct attacks on merchant vessels throughout the Arabian Sea. On 27th June an alarm call came in from the MV Namrun a Maltese flagged bulk carrier. The captain stated that an unknown dhow had attempted to attack it and shots were fired.After swift consultation with the other maritime forces, including the EU, in the operating area the commander of NATO’s Task Force, Commodore Ben Bekkering, dispatched the Evertsen.The warship covered almost 300 nautical miles in 10 hours to the area north-east of Socotra. Although known positions seemed to indicate the dhow was heading south toward for Somalia, the bad weather caused by strong monsoon winds and a very rough sea, forced her back.After an intensive search, aided by a Japanese Maritime Patrol Aircraft, the Lynx helicopter of Evertsen detected the dhow on Thursday afternoon, as it entered the Yemeni territorial waters. At first light this morning as the dhow headed south towards Somalia HNLMS Evertsen approached the dhow for a boarding. The dhow initially attempted to evade at speed. As the boarding team approached, the hijacked crew jumped overboard. While they were brought to safety, the dhow was secured by Dutch marines who detained seven suspected pirates.Confronted by HNLMS Evertsen, the suspected pirates gave up any attempt at further resistance. “This action proves again that pirates in this region have not yet given up, but multinational and coordinated efforts by all counter-piracy forces works”, states Commander Boots, commanding officer of HNLMS Evertsen.Background Information:NATO has contributed to the international counter piracy effort off the Horn of Africa since December 2008. The mission has expanded from escorting UN and World Food Programme Shipping under Operation Allied Provider and protecting merchant traffic in the Gulf of Aden under Operation Allied Protector. In addition to these activities and as part of the latest mission, Operation Ocean Shield, NATO is working with other international bodies to help develop capacity of countries in the region to tackle piracy on their own.Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 is permanently assigned to NATO. It is a multi-national Naval Group that provides the NATO Alliance with the ability to quickly respond to crisis situations anywhere in the world. A capable, stand-alone task group and one of four standing maritime elements that form a flexible core around which NATO can build a larger force to meet a wide range of missions that will include non-combatant evacuations, consequence management, counter terrorism, crisis response, embargo operations, etc.NATO Allies agreed on 19 March 2012 to extend Operation Ocean Shield for a further two years until the end of 2014.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 2, 2012; Image: NATO View post tag: NATO View post tag: Omani View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today NATO’s HNLMS Evertsen Rescues Omani Flagged Dhow from Pirates View post tag: Dhow View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

By contrast, Wave Knight will return to the UK for upkeep and maintenance before undertaking her next tasking.Reflecting on the deployment for the ship, Wave Knight’s Commanding Officer Simon Herbert said, “This has been a highly successful APT(N) deployment by Wave Knight, which has seen a number of defence activities delivered, including defence engagement, maritime security operations, and local capacity building”.He further added, “This deployment has highlighted the great versatility of Wave Knight and her ship’s company including RFA, RN and Royal Engineer Commandos who have been instrumental in the ship’s successful support to defence engagements across both the APT(N) and APT(S) areas of operation.“We now hand over to Mounts Bay and wish them every success in their future Atlantic Patrol Task North duties”.
