The project is an urban housing for a family with three girls in Salto, a city located on the eastern bank of the Uruguay River.The construction of 255 square meters on two levels is located on the obligatory frontal limit of 3 meters from the street, leaving free the largest patio area for the North sun.The land where the housing is implanted has a public pedestrian passage to the west, on this side the land narrows with a curve in the middle of its depth. This singularity is solved by the garage and a storage room, thus regularizing the patio.Save this picture!© Paulo AmbrosoniThe Constructive SystemThe project is defined from the choice of the construction system.The city of Salto has an interesting history of works of architecture in brick seen of great quality. Since the 1970s, Eladio Dieste’s buildings, among others, have masterfully used the structural and formal qualities of brick.Save this picture!Scheme StructureThe provision of specialized workmanship and first quality raw material allowed using the constructive system of load bearing wall of exposed brick and concrete slabs in an effective way.Save this picture!© Paulo AmbrosoniFormal StructureThe brick walls in English rig are arranged orthogonally and without voids. In the open spaces are located the openings from floor to ceiling.The four bedrooms with dressing rooms upstairs are used to modulate the structure. In ground floor the living room, dining room and kitchen are articulated in a free light of 5.70 meters.Save this picture!Lower FloorSave this picture!Upper FloorThe shape responds to the constructive system with continuous walls. The textures of the external partitions are achieved with protruding bricks and open joints to ventilate the chambers of ventilated facades.Save this picture!© Paulo AmbrosoniBioclimatic ConsiderationsThe climate in the city of Salto is very humid all year round, with very high temperatures in summer and low in winter.The mass of the brick walls provides insulation and thermal inertia to regulate the great variations of temperature during the year.Save this picture!© Paulo AmbrosoniThe house is closed to the south and to the street, opens to the north and the patio where eaves are used to protect against the strong summer sun and allow the entrance of solar radiation in winter.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionIt also regulates humidity and heat through cross ventilation in all spaces, using banners on the doors and making in summer the fresh air of the south façade in shade runs through the house.Save this picture!© Paulo AmbrosoniProject gallerySee allShow lessThese Intricate Illustrations Portray the Details of Fantastical CitiesArchitecture NewsNew York Plans $10 Billion Renovation of JFK AirportArchitecture News Share Uruguay CopyAbout this officePaulo AmbrosoniOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaltoUruguayPublished on January 06, 2017Cite: “Casa de Ladrillo / Paulo Ambrosoni” 06 Jan 2017.

The transformation project of the warehouse building of the old industrial complex of Fabra & Coats in Barcelona is included in the process of reconversion of this textile complex of the XIX and XX centuries to incorporate it to the “BCN creation factories” network. The project will bring to the Sant Andreu district more than 28,000 m2 of facilities and, as a first time in an industrial heritage transformation, social housing is included. The project includes 46 housing units of two bedrooms: 41 units for young people and 5 units as a temporal residence for artists in relation with the complex. The building was built in 1905 and destined for storage. It is 100 meters long, 15 meters deep, and 11 meters high and it is divided by one mid floor. The structure, façade and roof are the unit built in a brick, Arabic tile and interior steel structure, repeated 24 times (modules) every 3,4m. At the roof level there are 24 laminated steel trusses. Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Jordi SurrocaThis industrial constructive logic, where the building can be summarized as a repetition of a single transversal section, is transformed once you are in the interior, because the vision of the whole length of the building is stronger than the repetition of the module. The intervention in the building activates all the elements of the original building creating the new program, and reuses its physical, spatial and historical qualities to make the new construction more efficient and to reinforce the character of the original building.Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Jordi SurrocaThe original building is 100m long, where the first decision was to bring the value of its maximum dimension, which is the length. We access through the center creating an interior square where the promenade of the interior stairs begins in diagonal double ascending. The original building is communicated physically and visually from the ground level until the roof structure. This vestibule also connects the building to Parellada Street and the Fabra & Coats complex square. This new communal space is the new structural contribution to the original building. Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaThe new construction is by assemblage, it is a dry construction with just few materials, as in the original industrial building. Wood is used in all its forms: solid, agglomerated, cross laminated… Materials are joined as if it was a textile. To sew and un-sew, the new construction by its character and assemblage, can be assembled and disassembled, so it is “reversible”. The building, in the future, as a heritage element, can return to its original form of 1905, and the material used in its construction can be recycled. Save this picture!PlanStructural reuse of the two inner floors of the building, using them without any reinforcement (load capacity of 1,100kg/m2) to support on both floors the two new levels of housing. We convert two floors into four, to reach this we use a wooden structure, because it is 5 times lighter than a steel structure. The wooden frame structure is a translation of the old steel structures used as shelves for the storage of the threads.Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaFaçade and roof of the building as a thermic buffer for the housing units. The new housing units are placed separated from the façade and the original roof of the building, with a new wooden façade. The in-between space is created to circulate the air; therefore, the housing units do not require the air conditioning the most part of the year. Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaThe 45cm brick wall and the ceramic tile roof of the original building provide its thermal and shading properties to the new interior building, while maintaining its presence as an interior façade of the communal spaces. In this in-between space are the inner streets to access to the houses, identifying the old path of the thread packages through the crane bridge and the conveyor belts.Save this picture!© Jordi SurrocaProject gallerySee allShow lessFoeliestraat 2-4 Apartments / Ronald Janssen ArchitectenSelected ProjectsInstalación Activación Vertical / Taller Architects + Colab-19 + SCASelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter January USDA surpriseLower U.S. corn yield and higher world wheat stocks provided surprises from USDA in their January reports Friday. So the corn market bears got it wrong, but the trade also knew there is a recent history of January surprises from USDA.“We didn’t prepare for this surprise and this is almost 5 out of the last 5 years January has had a big reaction to it,” said Bob Utterback with Utterback Marketing Services. “The expectation going in was that we were going to see corn carryover increase because of increased yields. In fact the corn yield was actually reduced and that was just below 159 and everybody was expecting it to go to 162, up a bushel and a half. We lost what everybody thought we were going to gain.”Trade estimates had US ending stocks averaging 1.855 billion bushels but the USDA actual figure is 1.631. World ending stocks were estimated at 163.08 million metric tons and USDA’s actual figure is 160.2. Average yield estimates were calling for 161.17 bushels per acre, with USDA putting the figure at 158.80.On the flip side of the corn market was a very bearish reaction for wheat, and Utterback says that’s a concern right now for corn producers.“The technical nature of the wheat market now is becoming extremely negative and if wheat cannot stabilize within the next 2 or 3 days, this wheat bearishness is going to drift over into corn. Now wheat will be competitive like adding to corn supplies. So the loss in corn is being neutralized by the gain in wheat, which long term tells us the only way we can really take off in the corn market to the levels we want is the weather. But it’s not as bad as it was before the actual report.”USDA put the actual figure for U.S. wheat ending stocks for 2013/14 at 608 million bushels, above the trade estimates of 563. World ending stocks were estimated at 182.68 million metric tons and the actual USDA figure was higher by almost 3 million metric tons, at 185.40.For soybeans the average trade idea for U.S. 2013/14 ending stocks was 153 million bushels but USDA put the actual figure at 150 million bushels. Estimates for yield were averaging 43.26 bushels per acre and USDA came close with its 43.3. World ending stocks estimates were 71.46 million metric tons but the actual figure was pegged at 72.33.More numbers and analysis are in the Arlan Suderman daily comments from Friday.

NASA(HOUSTON) — Ahead of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing on July 20, NASA has restored the Apollo 11 mission control center to its former glory.Apollo 11 Flight Director Gene Kranz, who led the effort, recently stepped foot into the completely restored “Houston” and spoke to ABC News about what it was like to be in mission control on that historic day. Mission control housed the engineers and flight directors who worked tirelessly to ensure Apollo 11’s mission was a success. It took $5 million and a meticulous eye to bring it back to life 50 years later at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.“This room was really stirring,” Kranz said, “and the emotional intensity in this room was almost overwhelming.”The actual products engineers used in 1969 were tracked down by contractors on eBay and in antique stores: coffee, creamer, cigarettes, ash trays, pipes and even an RC Cola Can were placed in specific locations based on old photographs and film. The consoles were rebuilt entirely, and certain items were made special for the room that no longer exist today like the carpet and chair fabrics.“I really think the effort was to make it feel or make it look just the way it was, as if all the controllers just got up and went on break,” William Harris, president and CEO of Space Center Houston, told ABC News. “The goal was to have mission control look like the flight controllers just walked out of the room.”When asked if the control center looked the same as he remembered, Kranz replied, “The people that lived here and worked here, the room talks to them, and you can remember the calls that the CAPCOM made.”During the actual landing, the portion Kranz was responsible for, Neil Armstrong had to take manual control of the lunar lander with just seconds to land on the moon before they risked running out of fuel.The restored room brought back that memory vividly for Kranz.“When they were landing on the moon, I remember CAPCOM saying, ‘You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue,’” he recalled.Kranz told ABC News his proudest moment isn’t the landing itself, but the culture and frame of mind that was established in those four walls of mission control.“It’s the standard of excellence, discipline, morale, toughness, competence, commitment, teamwork,” Kranz explained. “That whenever we launch a crew, we’re going to bring them back. We lived by that mantra. Every crew we ever launched, we got home.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Related posts:No related photos. What is the answer to spiralling cash claimsOn 26 Sep 2000 in Vexatious claims, Personnel Today Comments are closed. Employers can do little to counter the effect of a qualifying period for claims and increasing payoutsClaims to tribunals have risen dramatically this year and it is hurting employers (News, 5 September). HR professionals are angry about time-wasting cases and have called for tribunals to fine the frivolous heavily to avoid legal chaos. It was obvious that reducing the qualifying period and increasing compensation limits would lead to many more claims. You do not dangle such a large carrot without getting a reaction. Not only was it obvious, but it has been part of this government’s thinking that it is right to put employers under this sort of pressure. In the White Paper Fairness at Work, back in 1998, it was said that the likelihood of “proper compensation” being awarded would encourage employers to put “proper voluntary systems in place”. Government policy is to improve the treatment of employees by making employers fear the consequences of paying heavily if they lose cases in tribunals. So we can expect that the policy makers are regarding with satisfaction the latest Acas figures and the levels of protest they have generated. Even if the Government changed its policy – and such things do happen when elections loom – it is not going to be that easy to discourage claims. The proposed solution of imposing heavy fines for frivolous claims needs examining. First, can one prove that the increase in the number of claims is matched by an increase in the proportion of frivolous applications? Perhaps what is happening is that it has become much harder to settle genuine grievances and this is why more applications have been made. Second, there is already a power for tribunals to award compensation to employers if claims are brought or conducted frivolously, vexatiously, or unreasonably. The problem is that tribunals are generally reluctant to make such a finding. The usual cop out is a decision that the applicant was misguided but had “a genuine sense of grievance”. The best disincentive for badly founded claims would be to increase the frequency of such awards but that will require a sea change in the attitude of chairmen and members, which is more difficult to achieve than changing the law.In addition there is a cap of £500 on the sum a tribunal can award without asking a County Court to assess costs. This limit could be increased to encourage employees to behave in the same way the system pressurises employers, however you would still need to get the tribunal to make the order. Another alternative would be to impose a fee for making a claim. Any kind of suggestion to impose costs on applicants creates heated opposition. Those looking after the interests of employees counter by saying that no Legal Aid is available for advocacy in tribunals. To avoid the prospect of pressure for Legal Aid many abandon the quest. As the present government is determined to reduce the Legal Aid budget on all fronts, this may today be less of a worry. Probably the real question to ask is why the “industrial jury” system has become so expensive to operate… but that is a different debate.• By Stephen Levinson, a partner in KLegal, the law firm associated with KPMG Previous Article Next Article
