When our clients approached us they had surrounded themselves with contemporary artworks of all forms and beautiful personal photographs from their travels, but it was hard to see anything inside the gloomy little rooms of their existing home. They came to us with a modest brief, not concerned with adding additional floor area and bedrooms but with finding ways of filling their little home with light. In turn we presented them with an unusual solution to the standard south-facing Sydney terrace problem, two tall sculpted roof forms with a low southern profile. The tall forms reach up and draw northern light in whilst the low profile sits comfortably over a run of joinery and maintains the available light to the neighbour’s north facing windows. As the conversation developed we started referring to the roof forms as light cannons, distant relations of those found in Le Corbusier’s La Tourette.Save this picture!SectionThe alterations have added a meagre 22 sqm to the existing footprint, re-purposing or swelling existing volume where possible to create more functional spaces. No additional bedrooms were added, rather the existing front bedroom was retained and left untouched. The single storey form to the rear remained as the living space but pushed to the boundary to reclaim the unusable and neglected breezeway space.A quiet courtyard was hollowed out where two storey and single storey forms meet. Upstairs the storage space was enlarged to become a master bedroom and ensuite. When we talk about the Light Cannon House, we often find ourselves talking about chemistry; our clients are both doctors of chemistry and their considered, clinical palette of white and black clearly informs the material palette and spaces of the home. They also introduced us the biological phenomenon of ‘chirality’ – the concept that explains why the asymmetrical light cannon roof form is pleasing to the eye.Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe clients embraced the unique scheme with a confidence and trust that is exceptional and greatly appreciated. They accepted the idea of living within a sculpted space and understood that challenging traditional building forms can result in something unusual and delightful.Save this picture!© Katherine LuThere was a wonderful chemistry and camaraderie between the builder, clients, and architects on this project that we feel was key to the evolution of this design. The result is a modest yet spacious, light filled home – expansive where it needs to be, contained and private where it needs to be, filled with the art and memories collected by our clients.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on a Hillside / Virgilio Gutiérrez HerrerosSelected ProjectsAD Interviews: Eric Bunge / nArchitectsInterviews Share Light Cannon House / Carter Williamson ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLight Cannon House / Carter Williamson Architects Houses “COPY” Projects Light Cannon House / Carter Williamson Architects “COPY”last_img read more

Creating “modulated connections” Located in a dense residential district in Tokyo, this property is distinguished by its triangular shape formed by two roads meeting at a sharp angle. The clients, a couple and their daughter, wanted a house that balanced privacy with the right amount of connection to the surrounding environment, while also controlling environmental elements like the direct sun that results from its location on a south-eastern corner lot bordered by roads on three sides. They also wanted a layout that made the best possible use of the lot’s unique shape.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!Ground and Upper Floor PlansSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaWhile the location is open, many surrounding residences face towards it, which inevitably creates a feeling of visual pressure. To deal with this, the design includes three voids that serve as intermediary spaces between inside and outside, gently connecting the house to the surrounding neighborhood while still ensuring privacy.  Because buildings on triangular lots tend to include dead space in the acutely angled corners, the three corners in this house are used as exterior voids. This creates obtuse angles on the interior side, which gives the rooms a softer shape.  The structure occupies the entire lot, conforming to the triangular site’s shape to avoid setback regulations.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe voids function as spaces that are continuous with the surrounding environment, residents, and neighborhood—in other words, with the exterior. In that way, they serve to “modulate connections” with the exterior. The comings and goings of people represent a direct connection. The windows cut into the structure provide another connection to the neighborhood. Then there are the connections created by lines of sight between residents, and connections with the sun, sound, wind, and other elements of the natural environment. The three voids modulate relationships between these elements of the interior and exterior. This modulation enables just the right degree of interaction, and ultimately, leads to harmonious coexistence with the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessSKF Test Centre / Tchoban Voss ArchitektenSelected ProjectsThe Second Headquarters of DAEGU BANK / JUNGLIM ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Masao Nishikawa Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  107 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Setagaya, Japan “COPY”last_img read more

Philadelphia adjuncts march for union rights

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgTemple adjuncts andsupporters march, Feb. 23.WW photo: Joseph PiettePhiladelphia — Temple University adjunct faculty, tenured and nontenured, as well as students marched for justice on Feb. 23 despite frigid weather.Half of Temple’s faculty are adjunct part-time professors, at-will employees (subject to firing at any time with no reason required) with only semester-long appointments, no affordable health care options and no job security. Their salaries average $3,900 per class, while Temple tuition costs each student $18,774 per year. The Temple Adjunct Organizing Committee wants to win the right to bargain over issues of job security, pay, class size, class cancellations, benefits and professional advancement.Hundreds of the university’s adjunct faculty petitioned the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board in December for the right to vote on joining the Temple Association of University Professionals union, which already represents 1,400 full-time faculty members.In a Feb. 17 letter to the Temple News, the TAOC wrote, “Unfortunately, Temple administration is delaying the process because they don’t respect us. Provost [Hai-Lung] Dai continues to send misleading and offensive emails to adjunct faculty discouraging us from unionizing. His actions show that he regards us as nothing more than cheap labor.” A hearing before the PLRB is scheduled for March 19 in Harrisburg, Pa.The Philadelphia protest kicked off many actions scheduled to take place all across the country during National Adjunct Action Week. That was called after the Feb. 25 National Adjunct Walkout Day was initiated last October.Adjuncts made up 43 percent of U.S. college faculty in 1975, but that number has risen to about 70 percent today, according to the American Association of University Professors. Many part-time faculty earn less than $30,000 a year, receive no health insurance and often teach at more than one school to get by. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prison, COVID, and Disabilities

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgBetsey [Piette] and I are both members of the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party. Every week, we publish 1-2 pages of articles about the struggles of incarcerated workers — our siblings who are in prisons, jails and detention centers. Our party is fully committed to fight for the total abolition of this inhumane and criminal injustice system.In many states, people who have felony convictions are not permitted to vote. In fact, many former prisoners first won and then lost their right to vote due to a recent court decision in Florida. And a very large percentage of incarcerated people are disabled. Voter suppression for people who have done time in prison is nothing new. Prisons do little or nothing to make incarceration accessible to people with disabilities, and we know that there is little or no real medical care available to people inside. COVID has impacted our incarcerated populations significantly, because social distancing and adequate PPE are not available to people inside. Prisoners are routinely and punitively transferred between prisons. A recent outbreak of COVID-19 at San Quentin Prison was caused by such a transfer of incarcerated people. The prison system did little or nothing to control the virus and guarantee the safety of the people behind the walls. In fact, within weeks this past summer, over 2,200 prisoners became infected with COVID, and 28 died. The California Appellate Court just ruled that the California Department of Corrections has to release or move 50% of the 3,000 incarcerated people from the prison. Activists on both sides of the walls and families of the incarcerated are demanding immediate release rather than another unnecessary and dangerous transfer.The Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party has a set of justice demands for prisoners on its Tear Down the Walls page. This issue impacts all people held in prisons, but particularly disabled, elderly and immunocompromised people. We demand the immediate release of this large group of the most vulnerable of our incarcerated siblings, regardless of their conviction. The violence of the prison system far outweighs the so-called crimes that people inside are doing time for. With COVID and negligent medical care, all prison time is now a death sentence. It’s time to free them all! Abolish the prisons, and use the money to fund schools, housing, jobs, health care and other services to benefit people not big businesses. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this From a talk given at the Oct. 22 Workers World Webinar on “Voter Suppression & COVID & their Impact on Disabled People.”last_img read more

Ahmed Abba – two years in prison for nothing

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_img to go further Follow the news on Cameroon CameroonAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentViolenceImprisonedFreedom of expression May 31, 2021 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information Radio France Internationale’s Hausa-language correspondent, Ahmed Abba has been held ever since his arrest in the far-north city of Maroua two years ago, on 30 July 2015, for allegedly collaborating with the Jihadi armed group Boko Haram, whose activities he was simply covering as a journalist. Held incommunicado for months, he was finally tried before a military court in Yaoundé and was sentenced on 24 April to ten years in prison and a fine of 85,000 euros on a charge of “laundering the proceeds of a terrorist act.” The verdict was incomprehensible, says his lawyer, Charles Tchoungang, who is appealing. Ever since Abba’s arrest, his lawyer, RFI and RSF have been insisting on his innocence and condemning the many flaws in the judicial proceedings, which have fallen far short of due process. “Ahmed Abba has no place behind bars because the case against him was non-existent, RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. We call for his conviction to be overturned because it was based on allegations that were never supported by tangible evidence or independent experts. This judicial persecution reflects the hostility of the Cameroonian authorities towards the media, who have been sacrificed on the altar of security and the fight against terrorism.” Travesty of justice Abba’s trial dragged on for more than a year because of repeated adjournments on a range of absurd grounds including an inability to produced prosecution witnesses, experts whose qualifications were rejected, the main judge’s absences and a failure to keep deadlines. All of the requests for Abba’s release that his lawyers presented in the course of the trial’s 18 hearings were systematically ignored. At no point was the prosecution able to produce any hard evidence of his guilt. It was only at the 15th hearing, in February, that Abba was finally allowed to give the court his version of the events. RSF repeatedly urged the Cameroonian authorities to abandon the case while RFI produced a great of irrefutable evidence of his innocence. One of the charges, condoning terrorism, was dropped during the trial but others were maintained despite the lack of any evidence Victim of mounting security fears Abba was the victim of growing alarm about Boko Haram, a terrorist group that the Cameroonian security forces have been combatting for at least five years. For a long time, he was facing a possible death sentence and it was under a controversial terrorism law adopted in June 2014 that he was tried by military court. He was held incommunicado for the first three months after his arrest, during which he was subjected to mistreatment amounting to torture without ever being able to receive medical treatment or see his family or lawyer, who was not allowed access to the prosecution case file. Cameroon is ranked 136th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
