LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Hutongs of the old Beijing are deemed as an authentic urban zone. Located within the second ring, this flat and intensive maze of alleyways and courtyards is surrounded by 20-metre-wide elevated expressways, ever-expanding skyscrapers and modern blocks. MINOR lab is situated in north Dongcheng District, close to the bustling Beiluogu Xiang. Quadrangle courtyards (Siheyuan), tenement yards(Zayuan), old residences of 4 to 6 storeys and scattered stores constitute the entire neighborhood. The layout of streets in Beijing are normally upright and square, whereas the width of alleyways reduces to 3 to 5 metres or an even narrower scale. The zigzag of Hutong lanes appears naturally due to human scale and their interactions, as the measurement and vein of the city.Save this picture!courtyard view. Image © Hao ChenIn the morning and on the way to the studio, once turning into the Hutong from the main street, we would be welcome by a quotidian yet lively scene: neighbors with baskets shopping from peddlers and a slow traffic moving through a busy lane. The scent in the air smells familiar too: home cooking in the kitchen, breakfast stalls, public restrooms and seasonal humidity… As for the sound, it is equally vivid: neighbors’ chatting, peddlers’selling stuffs, passengers’ arguing…Different dialects, rustling leaves, singling birds and insects compose an intriguing symphony. Save this picture!courtyard view from south to north. Image © Hao ChenThe courtyard that has been transformed to MINOR lab is a 13.5 by 9.5 metres rectangular site. When the wooden door is pushed open, a square space enclosed by grey brick walls presents itself. Two grand ginkgo trees stand in the yard – a unique space is created underneath the trees and on the rooftop, tranquil yet still immersed in the beats of Hutong. We came across this courtyard in the summer of 2017; back then, the landlord was reconstructing the wooden structure, grey brick walls and grey roof tiles. After rounds of communication, we decided to rent, redesign and transform the whole yard so that we could take root and build our own world of making architecture.Save this picture!Courtesy of MINOR labSave this picture!courtyard and guestroom (door opened). Image © Hao ChenCommunicate via architectureHistorically speaking, Beijing as an imperial city, has been established on the core basis of imperialization. The axes, Forbidden City and even the red city walls represented the absolute existence of imperial authority. Within such a complex institution of power and functionalities, Hutongs took shape gradually and became venues for the mass. Quadrangle courtyards on both sides of Hutongs were neighbors to each other. Behind the walls, every courtyard stood for a particular family space; and when they were aligned together by walls, all of them started to coexist and co-live on top of Beijing’s unique disposition.Save this picture!view from office space to courtyard. Image © Hao ChenIn the course of modernization, the collapse and reconstruction of order has triggered massive changes to Hutongs and quadrangle courtyards in Beijing. As a result, after the upheaval, demographics, population density and the social structure have made it challenging to define quadrangle courtyards. The outline of Hutongs has been retained, however, the scenic substances behind the walls of Hutong courtyards have been fragmented in constant tearing down and reconstruction.Save this picture!café library space. Image © Hao ChenWhat has not changed for Hutongs, whether it is within or outside the walls, is that the community is still living their lives and sticking to their lifestyle in a timeless manner. Yet for us, we leverage the form of an architectural studio to open up a courtyard, wipe away the boundaries, and create a space for communication in Hutongs.Save this picture!office space. Image © Hao ChenSave this picture!office space. Image © Hao ChenFlowing life under the roofWalls on either side of the Hutong prevent direct sunlight from getting inside, which can be seen as a boundary between public and private venues. Within the walls remains an inward and enclosed space, however, the yard resembles a vast container, letting in sky, wind, sunlight, air and sound. The crowns of the two grand ginkgo trees are the flowing roof in the open air, overlapping layers of grey tiles. The exterior space under the trees connects to the interior one underneath the four roofs, floating and exchanging in a continuous way.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!courtyard view. Image © Hao ChenThe main room in the north of the courtyard is the office space, the biggest indoor space. What connects itself and the yard is a transparent strip of space, instead of a mere façade. This virtual space is made of a metal thin wall, transparent glass and thick acrylic boards. From the entrance of the courtyard, a showcase window, a sliding door and a semi-outdoor and transparent exhibition space appear in proper order. The façade demonstrates reflections and diffused reflections of several processed metal materials, as well as different degrees of transparency relatively by acrylic boards and glass. Not only the façade transmits enough daylight, but also the strip space functions as a carrier of light. It mirrors indoor and outdoor views, blurs the boundary between the two spaces – daylight and views extend horizontally and working indoors feels like sitting under the trees.Save this picture!view from café library to guestroom. Image © Hao ChenSave this picture!view from courtyard to entrance (daytime). Image © Hao ChenThe semi-outdoor exhibition space is separated from the yard with 13 25-millimetre-thick acrylic boards, placed in an inclined yet parallel manner. Within the 700-millimetre-wide space, one may feel the breeze, the light and shadow, the crystal presence and subtle reflection of the boards. The space is clear and transparent; actually, it is an exhibit itself. Apart from displaying models, it also holds exhibitions from time to time.Save this picture!guestroom. Image © Hao ChenThe other side of the courtyard houses a guest room (East), a bathroom (Southeast), a kitchen (Southwest), a café/mini-library (West). In the limited courtyard space, we have modestly imbedded a light and translucent interface made of steel frame, glass and polycarbonate panel. It combines the functional spaces and makes the aisle an extension to the courtyard space, which permeates the limited indoor space through the translucent interface or glass sliding door. The polycarbonate panel we have used guarantees proper privacy and thermal insulation, and softens the natural light indoor. It also varies the indoor scene with the changing sunlight and shade.Save this picture!view from kitchen to courtyard and café library.

By hosting weekend public events and exhibition and inviting artist over, we are sharing the courtyard space with the city. During this process, we learn to keep exclusive memories of the courtyard.Save this picture!brunch activity. Image © Dan ZhaoThe lab of life & an organic city of people, objects and natureWe have chosen some common materials and leveraged simple craftsmanship in Hutongs. In this way, we have tried to harmonize new things and the initial scene and to create some new meanings. The birth of architecture or the evolution of a city is backed by a well-defined infrastructure. Rather than just a workplace, this courtyard serves as a laboratory for us. We treat every object, tool, plant and little animal with curiosity while working, exchanging, cooking, resting and walking around. By doing this, we are discovering how to place and interact with them properly. We are gradually learning how to create our own approach under the roof, and interpret it in our works and even conversations. These nuanced practices and observations are part of the architecture, and also clues depicting the memory of a city.Save this picture!the original condition before rebuilt.

Risks for Homeowners Outside FEMA Flood Zones

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News FEMA flood zones natural disaster 2020-07-07 Mike Albanese It seems Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) maps have sprung more than a few leaks, much to the chagrin of homeowners like Michael Wilson.A couple of years back, the 43-year-old purchased a brick bungalow on Chicago’s South Side. He did his homework, reviewing the home’s flood risk with a fine-tooth comb, and the home’s unfinished basement bore no obvious signs of water damage, according to a report from ProPublica, which appeared in Big Easy magazine.Additionally, the real estate agent had been unaware of a flood history while the home was on the market, and Wilson had hired a waterproofing specialist to inspect the property for indications of previous flooding or structural damage. Yet, only two months after he purchased the home, zap; it flooded.Turns out the home is outside a FEMA special flood hazard area, stated the report. Meaning Wilson wasn’t required to have flood insurance. Yes, there was some coverage for sewer backups in his home insurance policy. The catch was, it didn’t begin to cover the damage to his home.While it’s up to FEMA to flag to high-risk zones where homeowners with federally backed mortgages are required to buy flood insurance, its maps are famously known for their incompleteness. Yes, they pick up on some flooding from rivers and other coastlines, when it comes to heavy rainfall, they score a near 10 for missing the boat. Not good, since urban development and climate change have further exacerbated the problem.The report said homeowners beyond FEMA’s high-risk zones have a false sense of security.Homeowners outside of FEMA’s high-risk zones often believe they’re safe, underestimating their vulnerability. Then, once a flood hits, they must pay out-of-pocket for water damage, since they weren’t made to buy flood insurance.Flood damage hits taxpayers in the pocketbook as well. In the aftermath of major disasters, the underinsured receive limited government assistance. Agencies such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development provide long-term recovery funds.A total of 8,7 million properties are situated in areas prone to a “hundred-year flood,” according to FEMA. A “hundred-year flood’s” a flooding event with a 1% chance of occurring each year. There are 14.6 million properties at risk, the new data states.A comprehensive new assessment of flood risk, released this week by the nonprofit First Street Foundation, exposes blind spots in FEMA’s maps to show just how vulnerable the nation’s properties are. Built by researchers from private companies and universities, the model calculates the cumulative risk for every property in the contiguous United States from rainfall, storm surge, tidal, and river flooding. The new data says there are 14.6 million properties at risk.In an April report from FEMA and the Office of the Flood Insurance Advocate, the agency detailed its planning to cut back the complexity of the National Flood Insurance Program, according to DSNews,.“FEMA’s strategic goals established in 2018 remain in place to build a culture of preparedness, ready the nation for a catastrophic disaster, and reduce the complexity of FEMA programs, particularly the NFIP,” said David Stearrett, FEMA Flood Insurance Advocate.

Lyle Menendez describes reunion with brother Erik after 22 years as a ‘remarkable moment’

first_imgABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — Lyle Menendez, one of the two affluent California brothers convicted for the 1989 murders of their parents, spoke out to DailyMailTV in his first interview since he reunited with his brother, Erik Menendez.The brothers came face to face earlier this month for the first time in 22 years after Lyle was transferred to the R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility, where Erik had been housed since July 2013, said Robert Rand, a journalist who has covered the case since 1989 and was a consultant for NBC’s 2017 TV series on the brothers.Lyle “ended up bursting into tears” upon seeing his brother, he said in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV, a preview of which was shared with ABC News’ Good Morning America.“It was just something I wasn’t sure was ever going to happen,” Lyle said. “It was just a remarkable moment.”The two hadn’t seen each other since September 1996, when they could see each other across a prison yard but couldn’t talk to each other, Rand told ABC News. While in separate prisons, they couldn’t talk on the phone, but they would write letters to each other — sometimes playing chess by sending moves via snail mail, Rand said.On Aug. 20, 1989, Lyle, then 21, and Erik, then 18, opened fire on their parents inside their Beverly Hills mansion, using shotguns they had bought days before.In the interview, Lyle admitted he would change how he handled the aftermath of the killings.“If I could take my consciousness now and go back, I would have gone to the police and taken my chances in exposing what was happening,” he said.The pair was arrested in 1990 after their psychologist’s girlfriend went to police, claiming Erik had confessed to the murders during a session. The doctor-patient privilege was voided after Lyle threatened the doctor’s life.Lyle wishes his brother would have talked to him or a member of the clergy, instead of going to the psychologist, he told DailyMailTV.“I wish that he had just talked to me, or you know, spent more time going to his parish priest, and not ended up in, sort of this therapist’s hands,” he said.During their trial, prosecutors painted the brothers as two spoiled and privileged children who murdered their parents out of greed in an attempt to inherit the family fortune. The defense argued that they acted in self-defense after years of abuse.The first trial ended in a mistrial. In 1996, at the end of the second trial, the brothers were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to two consecutive life prison terms without the possibility of parole.Despite everything that’s happened, the pair has “never had any moments of animosity,” Lyle told DailyMailTV.“I love him deeply,” he said. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Paleolimnology in the High Arctic – implications for the exploration of Mars

first_imgPaleolimnology provides information on the past chemical, physical and biological nature of water bodies. In polar regions, where global climatic changes can be exacerbated compared with lower latitudes, the science has become important for reconstructing past changes and in so doing, predicting possible effects of future changes. Owing to the association of life with water bodies, particularly stable water bodies sustained over many millennia, paleolake regions on the surface of Mars are of exobiological importance. In this mini-review, we use experience gathered in the High Arctic to describe the importance of paleolimnology in the Earth’s polar regions as it pertains to the future application of this science to robotic and human exploration missions to the planet Marslast_img read more

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to Return Home Early

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to Return Home Early View post tag: USS View post tag: Dwight Training & Education View post tag: D. View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy The Navy has directed the temporary return of the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower(CVN 69) from her current overseas deployment, allowing the ship to return home for two months before sending it back to the Middle East region.The unusual move is being made to accommodate delays due to emergent repair work on USS Nimitz (CVN 68). The Everett, Wash.-based carrier was expected to deploy to the region to relieve Eisenhower early next year. Nimitz is now expected to deploy once repair work is complete.Bringing Eisenhower back home to its homeport in Norfolk, Va. in December will permit the Navy to resurface the ship’s flight deck and make it available to return and remain in the Middle East region for several more months. This decision also provides the ship’s crew a welcome holiday respite from what will become nearly 10 months on station. “Our Navy is in high demand operating forward all over the world,” said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert. “And our Sailors, civilians and their families are doing a great job meeting that demand. Expanded maintenance work on USS Nimitz was unpredictable and has required us to establish a carrier schedule that satisfies our commitments overseas and most importantly is mindful of the stress on our Navy family. This is the right thing to do.”The John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group, currently deployed to the region, will continue providing carrier presence in the CENTCOM Area of Responsibility. Stennis departed its homeport of Bremerton in August.[mappress]Naval Today Staff,November 26, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: Eisenhowercenter_img USS Dwight D.

Danish bakers fears recipe step-change for cinnamon rolls

first_imgDanish bakers have been asked to make sure the amount of cinnamon they use falls within EU rules, after a survey found that 50% of products contained levels above the limit.A recent study of food samples by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, found that 50% of fine baked goods contained too much coumarin, according to ABC News.Coumarin is a chemical compound found in the most common variety of cinnamon, which has been linked to liver damage.As reported in The Telegraph, under Danish interpretation of the EU legislation the amount of cinnamon in “everyday fine baked goods” will be limited to 15mg per kilo meaning a ban on Kanelsnegler pastries, a traditional product in all Nordic countries.Hardy Christensen, head of the Danish Bakers’ Association, told The Telegraph: “It’s the end of the cinnamon roll as we know it.”It is understood further discussions about what action will be taken are due to take place in February.last_img read more
