The tower E.I.O.5 is a project of social housing promoted by INCASOL and it is located in a new central zone known as Plaça Europa (Europa Square). The Europa Square, according to Albert Viaplana’s Project, it is shaped as the last nude in Llobregat’s direction of the squares se- quence that, approximately each kilometer, marking the Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes. Save this picture!via Jordi SurrocaThe urban model of the Europa Square is a generous public space opened to each side of Gran Via which concentrates, with other buildings, 26 towers of tertiary and residential uses, publics and privates, between 15 and 20 floors. Tower 5 is located in the farthest crown from the Gran Via which runs half- undergrounded. For all the buildings of this last ring, most of them public housing promoted by different clients, distribution laws in the master planning fix a maximum floor dimension of 24×24 m, as well as height in which should be located the first floor structure and the crowing point of the towers. Save this picture!via Jordi SurrocaThe piece we had built was an object of public client’s competition in February 2005. In our proposal rescaling the tower according to its position as a piece in the limit with the consolidate fabric of Hospitalet trying to visualize with the building a movement between Europa Square and the blocks of 5 floors that form the surrounding. Grouping together floors from 3 to 3, the image of the tower, perceived in some kind of cinematographic long plan, could approximate to a building of 5 floors of height. Consequently the scale of the windows, according to that law of grouping them, is also transforming in frames of 10 meters height and different thickness. In order to be more accurate, the facade and windows, this last ones with a sequential number and modulated in pieces with similar dimensions to a door (0.8 x 2,10 m), succeeding in different planes with a depth that range between 50 cm and 1,2 meter and emphasises the concept of big inverted tribunes. In each section of the tower the first floor of every serial of 3 is a balcony. Save this picture!via Jordi SurrocaAs some of the images in a “short plane” we have done for the competition show us, this frames avoid vertigo impression because between the interior and the outside of the apartment there is always an intermediate element: balconies, jambs, or the lintels of this big holes. The election of the elements for the facade’s assembly has been done paying attention to a comparative study of several constructive solutions which evaluated the origin of already recycled materials, its natural origin and the capacity for being recycled at the end of its useful life. Likewise, was also valuated the expense of fabrication energy and the recovered politics of the surplus energy genera- ted during the production process. Materially, the facade is constructed with a sheet of 8 mm of thickness of high pressure laminate panels hanging of hidden structure of recycled aluminium perfiles. Black frames are made of aluminium composite panels 4mm of thickness which brings equal resistance with a lower weight per m2 to any other material with the same features. Save this picture!via Jordi SurrocaResuming, all materials used in the tower’s construction are 100% recyclable and specifically the ones used in the facade come from a 65% and 100% already recycled materials. The tower is set in floor plane as two towers with T form circulation corridor and two scales in the extremes across the one illuminates the interior in the circulation zone. Every tower has two apartments of 69 m2 in the extremes and one of 56 m2 in the central position. Totally, the program is of 75 units. In this project, the apartment unit’s distribution begins in the 14th floor and keeps descending so the compacted residential volume from the superior floor releases a space of 3 levels height with a T form in the access. This piece, generous in volume and “sober” in measures and finishing materials, in its longest dimension it ends being a street with accesses in the extremes and has unusual dimensions for the building’s entrance hall of usual public housing buildings. Save this picture!via Jordi SurrocaWe think that big frames of the facades as well as the space of the entrance hall, work like intermediate spaces of relation, shaping the community scale, between the individual and private scale of the houses and the public city scale.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Jaume Fuster Library / Josep Llinás and Joan VeraArticlesShadowboxing Exhibition / Slowscape CollectiveArticlesProject locationAddress:Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Passionate art patrons, the clients requested that their extensive collection of glass, sculpture and two-dimensional art, mostly by Northwest masters, inspire their home’s design. The collection takes center stage and fills the home. The main floor is organized with a long spine from which the living, dining, family and kitchen areas flow. Art also links the indoors and outdoors, as exterior sculptures and custom glass pieces that delineate the home’s entrance draw visitors inside, through the home and to the waterfront terrace and lawn on the other side. Windows throughout offer sweeping views of Lake Washington from the inside, while also framing exterior views of the artwork within. This transparency creates a sense of openness and unity that balances the couple’s densely displayed art collection with nature, lake and sky.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderSave this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderThe expansiveness of the views and the proximity to Lake Washington make the house feel almost like a houseboat floating on water. The clients requested that the 10,000-square-foot home be oriented so as to preserve a view corridor to Lake Washington for their closest neighbors. The resulting perpendicular orientation creates an outdoor room that includes a cabana building with showers and an orchid hothouse, a covered wood-fired pizza oven and open-air cooking space, and a garden in which both food-bearing and flowering plants enliven the landscape. A green roof with sedum and rooftop solar panels was specified to meet the clients’ environmental concerns.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderA dedication to sharing their art with other collectors and artists motivated the couple to incorporate flexible features throughout the home for entertaining, including sliding panels for closing off private areas and emphasizing the central art corridor where guests can linger during gatherings. The main floor of the home primarily consists of spaces for family and guests, while bedrooms and small living spaces are located above.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzProject gallerySee allShow lessT.ETERNO Restaurant / Nazodesign StudioSelected ProjectsLine 6 Santiago Metro Stations / IDOMSelected Projects Share Area: 10000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: Benjamin Benschneider, Aaron Leitz Photographs Northwest Art House / Olson KundigSave this projectSaveNorthwest Art House / Olson Kundig Year: Lead Architects: ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeOlson KundigOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilitySeattleUnited StatesPublished on October 15, 2018Cite: “Northwest Art House / Olson Kundig” 15 Oct 2018.

He is supported by six other commissioners with extensive charity, economic and fiscal policy expertise. The Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs are acting as observers on the commission.Sir Nicholas has blogged today about the work of the commission.He said: “It’s 20 years since the last review of how the tax system treats charities, and a lot has changed since then. So it’s time for a fresh look, and we want to hear from a wide range of people with experience and expertise in the field about what changes they think are needed. This is not about throwing money at the sector. It’s about using the public money that’s already there to make the system work more effectively for charities and their beneficiaries.”Alongside the consultation, the commission will also be holding a series of public evidence-gathering meetings across the UK during the consultation period.The call for evidence will close on 6 July 2018 at 5pm.

These range from business rates relief, social investment tax relief, and gift aid to VAT exemption and inheritance tax relief.Anyone with relevant knowledge, expertise or experience of charitable tax reliefs in the UK is invite to submit their evidence. This could include charities, donors, academics, think tanks, representative bodies, accountants, philanthropy and financial advisers and tax professionals.Unless respondents indicate to the contrary, it will be assumed that they have no objection to their response being made public.Impact of tax and transparencyPart of the focus of the Commission is to understand how current tax treatment directs or affects the activities of charities and encourages, or otherwise, certain behaviour.It is also seeking views on ways to increase transparency of charities in handling and spending public money without significantly increasing the administrative burden on charities.
A coalition of groups is collecting signatures on an appeal to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf “to see to it that everyone with the hep C virus should get the cure — those in prison, too.” The organizations are all active in the movement to free renowned political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is suffering from the effects of the hepatitis C virus, as are thousands of other prisoners. An estimated 22.1 percent of women and 12.8 percent of men in New York State prisons are infected with HCV, according to the Women in Prison Project. Signed cards and letters will be delivered to Wolf’s office at the end of a protest march in Philadelphia on Friday, April 22.To Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf:We call on you to make the cure for hepatitis C possible for thousands of Pennsylvanians infected with this virus, including up to 10,000 in Pennsylvania prisons and 45,000 in Philadelphia. There is a cure that is 95 percent effective, but Gilead Sciences charges up to $94,500 for the 12-week-long treatment with Sovaldi or Harvoni. Thousands are being denied the hep C cure by Medicaid, the Veterans Administration, personal medical insurers and the PA Department of Corrections. In 2015, while many people were suffering and dying from cirrhosis or cancer of the liver because they didn’t have the means to pay the steep price for the cure, Gilead made an obscene $17 billion in profits.As we informed you in petitions last year, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal almost died from hepatitis C complications. The DOC spent over $160,000 treating Abu-Jamal’s hep C symptoms but refuses to provide him with the available cure. The cost of the DOC’s refusal to cure the disease when first detected is not only immeasurable in suffering and loss of lives of state prisoners but leads to higher financial expenses as the disease is allowed to develop into cirrhosis or cancer of the liver. We ask you to make the DOC’s hep C protocol a guide for treatment and eradication of HCV, not a manual for the denial of care. Prisoners with untreated hep C unknowingly bring this deadly disease back to their communities — often to neighborhoods with poor access to quality health care.HCV is a greater threat to Pennsylvania residents than HIV, Ebola or Zika. Countries such as Egypt and India are providing the hep C cure to their patients for a tiny fraction of the cost in this country. Why not Pennsylvania? Governor Wolf, it is your job to see to it that everyone with the hep C virus should get the cure — those in prison, too.For prisoners like Mumia Abu-Jamal, untreated hepatitis C is a death sentence. The Pennsylvania DOC’s refusal to fully treat Abu-Jamal and other prisoners is a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Eighth Amendment prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment. In light of the PA DOC’s refusal to provide the cure to HCV, we therefore call on you to release Mumia Abu-Jamal and all other prisoners needlessly suffering from untreated hepatitis C.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Government policies are preventing too many refugees and asylum-seekers fromgetting work, according to an Industrial Society report released exclusively toPersonnel Today. The research, Poor Reception, Refugees and Asylum-Seekers: Welfare or Work?,claims that refugees and asylum-seekers are being hampered from getting jobsthrough a combination of muddled Government migration policy, employerignorance and media-backed public prejudice. The Industrial Society is calling for a package of reforms including astandard permission-to-work document and a skills database. The study also calls for migration policy to be continuous from entry,through settlement to immigration. Finally, the Government needs to change perceptions by running an educationinitiative designed to shift public opinion and educate employers about theskills and experience of most asylum-seekers and refugees. Co-author Gill Sargeant said, “It is a matter of national disgrace thatnearly four out of five asylum-seekers and refugees are being excluded fromBritish workplaces. “It’s high time that the Government got its act together on migrationpolicy and made sure that those allowed to live in this country are alsoallowed to work in this country.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.
