Ross Street House / RWH Design

first_imgSave this picture!© Zane Williams+ 26 Share Projects Photographs:  Zane WilliamsText description provided by the architects. Carol Richard, founding partner of the Atlanta-based architecture firm Richard Wittschiebe Hand, returned home to Madison, Wisconsin last summer to build her house. “When I was a young architect,” says Carol, “I designed and built a house for myself in Atlanta and I’ve always wanted to build again and take advantage of the things I’ve learned over my career.” Carol’s most recent design is a collaboration with her mechanical engineer husband, Fred Berg. Their residence, known as the Ross Street House, was recognized as Wisconsin’s first LEED for Homes Platinum rated residence in July 2009. The home has captured the attention of green enthusiasts throughout the country for far exceeding the requirements to achieve the highest LEED rating of Platinum.Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsRecommended ProductsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorspanoramah!®ah! PivotFiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe southfacing lot sits among a mix of houses in the Madison neighborhood of Glenway. Most of the homes are post world war Cape Cod in style with a few 1960’s modern homes. The designers felt that it was important to maintain the scale and utilize familiar materials from the neighborhood. Neighboring homes were modeled so that designers were comfortable with the scale and the way the house would fit into the eclectic neighborhood. As the couple’s retirement home, it was important to them to “be a good neighbor,” so an effort was made to meet their future neighbors and talk about the design of the house before construction.Save this picture!lower level planThe 2,700 square foot design is a simple form with cues taken from the southfacing lot. The southern facade was designed to capture as much of the winter southern sun as possible while shading the sun in the summertime. The concept of a box camera generated the form with the roof gently sloping from south to north. Sunlight that enters the home is controlled with fixed louvers attached outside the south facing windows. Computer modeling in ArchiCAD was utilized to study the amount of daylight that would enter the building during the winter and summer solstices. The louvers are designed to allow the sunlight to penetrate deep into the space between October and February while shading the windows between May and August. Save this picture!main level planPrimary exterior materials are 6” tongue and groove cedar siding with a metal roof. Cedar siding was selected for its similar scale and material to other houses along the street. A dark color for the siding and roof were chosen so that the house would appear smaller than it actually is. In contrast, the interior materials are very light in nature. Locally harvested maple and light colored walls make the inside of the house appear larger than it is. Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsThe main level is an open plan with service elements on the west side and living spaces on the east side. An open stair visually connects all three floors and is anchored by a three-story high wall. The upper level has a study opening onto the living room and a master bedroom suite. The lower level has additional bedrooms, a beer making room, storage, and a workroom.

Volatile organic compound (VOC)-free paints and adhesives were used to limit the unhealthy off-gassing commonly found in conventional American homes. The detached garage is topped with photovoltaic panels that generate enough electricity to offset more than half of the annual demand. Save this picture!west elevationThe house was designed to minimize air infiltration to less than 1 air change per hour through the incorporation of spray foam insulation and the careful sealing of all doors and windows. Forced ventilation is necessary to provide healthy air in the house. This is accomplished efficiently by using an energy recovery ventilation system and incorporates a 3-stage high efficiency furnace. Save this picture!© Zane WilliamsOutside the home, the front and back yards are transformed into garden spaces. An overall incorporation of native perennial plants and no turf grass make the yard low-maintenance. A rain garden and vegetable garden are located in the back yard next to the detached garage. A rainwater collection and retention system that stores 650-gallons of water is stored below the back porch. Pervious paving and limited impervious hardscaping for the driveway and walkways were used.Save this picture!section diagramProject gallerySee allShow lessShifting Sands / Work ACArticlesP.S.1 2010 entry: Cumulus by FreecellArticles Share 2009 CopyAbout this officeRWH DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMadisonHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 26, 2010Cite: “Ross Street House / RWH Design” 26 Jan 2010.

Undressing what exists and transforming what is necessary to create a sequence of interrelated spaces has been the greatest objective of this rehabilitation. To give value to certain pre-existing elements of the house and the environment by eliminating unnecessary elements is the starting point of the project of this detached house located a few meters away from the epicenter of the Horta district in Barcelona.Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan – Original/ProjectSave this picture!© Aitor EstévezSave this picture!© Aitor EstévezThe house dates from 1930, with a facade of 7m wide and a built depth of 10m. This townhouse survives the real estate pressure and the transformation of the neighborhood that has been replacing this typology with multi-family buildings of more than 4 floors as those that surround it. The proposal is based on recovering some existing original elements (structure, pavements, and enclosures) and adding the minimum to transform it into a sensitive, functional and sustainable project. The new distribution of the interior spaces is adapted to the needs of its inhabitants and the composition of the same allows visual perspectives along the plot and through the house facilitating at the same time an improvement of natural ventilation in both plants.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezThe facade of the street (East) remains intact to the original and the interior facade (West) are transformed by adding two elements to improve the envelope of the existing building, a pergola of bamboo with vegetation on the ground floor and three wooden roller shutters on the first floor that at the same time give privacy to the balcony. In this same facade, the predominant ceramic of the buildings that surround it serves as the background to integrate the only new volume of the house, a cube raised in “termoarcilla” where the bathroom of the master bedroom is located. All in a set of terracotta textures and colors that mimic the facade of the garden in a heterogeneous and fragmented environment.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section – BalconySave this picture!© Aitor EstévezSave this picture!© Aitor EstévezProject gallerySee allShow lessBenthem Crouwel Designs “Recycled and Recyclable” Science Faculty for the University…Architecture NewsHow Hip-Hop Architecture is Making its Own SpaceArticles Sharelast_img read more

South Korea

first_img The country has fully realised the importance of the Internet in opening up and expanding the economy. In just three years, the number of people online rose from three million to 26 million, largely because of the growth of high-speed connections, whose quality is a big draw.Black list of 120,000 sitesDespite being so widely used, the Internet is still regulated. South Korea was one of the first countries in the world, in 1995, to pass a law about the distribution and viewing of online material. The Information Communication Ethics Committee (ICEC) monitors the content of websites and forums very closely and can recommend that access to them be blocked.The information and communication ministry called in July 2001 for access to be barred to 120,000 sites it considered offensive. These included sites featuring pornography, violence, information about computer hacking, spreading viruses, cybercrime and euthanasia. The government asked for filters against them to be installed on computers in cybercafés, schools and public libraries. ISPs faced prosecution if they did not install them too. The reason given was to protect young people from exposure to supposedly dangerous content.This argument was rejected by Jinbonet, which campaigns for Internet freedom in South Korea. It was just one more attack on the Internet, it said, after the government was forced in 2000 to abandon an earlier proposal to introduce online censorship as a result of a public uproar. Jinbonet said the ministry had experts working on ways to block sites.ICEC shut down the anti military service site non-serviam in May 2002 for two months, on grounds that military service was an obligation for all Korean men and that anti-militarist campaigns had drawn many complaints. The decision was taken under article 53 of the 1995 law.

But the government still censors sites it considers objectionable. A month later, the country’s constitutional court struck down article 53, along with article 16 providing for its application, after criticism by Jinbonet and the group Lawyers for a Democratic Society. In November, parliament amended Article 53, replacing the term “dangerous content” with “illegal content.” But the powers of ICEC and the ministry to monitor and punish were upheld.Political militant arrestedKim Kang-pil, an activist of the far-left Democratic Labour Party, was arrested on 25 July 2002 for posting articles about North Korea on the party’s website. He was held under article 7 of the national security law which severely punishes sympathisers of the North Korean regime. He was accused of committing “an act advantageous to the enemy” and sentenced to a year in prison and banned from voting for a year. After the trial, an anti Internet censorship group said it clearly showed the government was monitoring political and social websites and that there must be others reasons for the sentence. Kim was freed on 3 December after an appeals court had suspended his sentence.Gay website bannedA federation of 15 gay rights associations filed a suit against the government in January 2002 for banning the country’s first website for homosexuals, The group, the Lesbian and Gay Alliance Against Discrimination in Korea, pointed out that the national constitution did not permit the government to interfere with people’s sexual orientation and that banning the site was a violation of the guarantee of freedom of expression, speech and the media.A government committee on the protection of children, answering to the prime minister’s office, had called the website pornographic and harmful to young people’s morality. But a few months earlier, the committee had placed on the Internet the uncensored details of the sexual offences committed against children under 13 by about 60 named people, whose personal and professional details were also given.High-speed connections help hackersOne result of the Internet’s success and the ease of connection through high-speed access is that hackers are particularly active. A study in 2001 by consultants Predictive Systems said a third of all hacking done outside the United States originated in or passed through South Korea.An example was the episode of a US spy-plane forced to land in China in May 2001, which triggered furious activity by US and Chinese hackers, with South Korea as the cyber-battlefield. More than 100 attacks were made on the websites of universities, companies and research centres in South Korea, because the country has so many connections with both countries. The hackers on both sides wanted to conceal their identity so they hid behind South Korea rather than attack the “enemy” directly.Election campaign onlineThe December 2002 presidential elections featured on an online battle between animated websites set up by young journalists close to reformist candidate Roh Moo-hyun and major newspapers such as the right-wing daily Chosun Ilbo. Roh’s victory was helped by support from sites such as OhmyNews, which got 20 million visitors a day during the campaign. The site’s founder, Oh Yeon-ho, said he had reproduced online the equivalent of the pro-democracy street-fighting in the 1980s. The site, based on a network of 23,000 “citizen-reporters” all over the country, had a scoop when it exposed a scandal involving the Hyundai industrial group.

French journalist is latest to be cyber-harassment target

first_img The threats against Daam have not been just virtual. She heard loud banging on the door of her home in the early hours of 2 November and reported the incident to the police, who registered it as a “threat of criminal violence.” The incident was almost certainly liked to all the death threats and threats of rape and violence, some tinged with racism, that she has been getting since a report by her on Radio Europe 1 criticizing the trolls behind the sabotaging of an “anti-jerk” app used by women who are the victims of harassment in the street. Daam is also a reporter for “28 Minutes,” a programme broadcast by the Franco-German TV channel Arte. As well as threats, there have been attempts to hack into Daam’s instant messaging and social network accounts, according to the newspaper Libération. She has also received emails informing her that she has been registered on porn and paedophile websites with her home address. Her daughter has also been mentioned. This means Daam has also been the victim of “doxxing,” in which cyber-bullies research and publish the personal details of the targets of their harassment campaigns. Those behind the campaign against Daam are said to be users of the 18-25 year-olds’ Forum at, a website known for its misogyny and excesses. Journalists often targeted by trolls RSF backs the letter in support of Daam that has been published by Libération and voices its concern about the growing use of cyber-harassment both in France and internationally with the aim of silencing journalists. “These online conspiracies, which take advantage of the virality of online networks, pose a threat to journalists that must be taken very seriously, said Elodie Vialle, the head of the Journalism and Technology Desk at RSF. This cyber-harassment particularly affects women journalists and those who investigate trolling, troll factories and cyber-bullying networks.” Around two-thirds of women journalists worldwide have been the victims of harassment, according to a report by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF). A quarter of this harassment takes place online. The many journalists who have been harassed online internationally include Indian reporter Rana Ayyub, the author of the best-selling book “Gujarat Files,” who has been the target of online threats and hate messages from those who want to silence her. Maria Ressa, the CEO of Rappler, a website in the Philippines, has received more than 80 threats, most of them online, in connection with her investigative reporting about President Rodrigo Duterte’s policies. Research into the IP addresses from which the threats were sent shows that they came from Duterte associates. RSF issued a press release in September condemning the threats against Laura Kuenssberg, the first woman to be the BBC’s political editor. She now has a bodyguard as a result of receiving online threats since last year from opposition Labour Party supporters who accuse her of politically biased reporting.France is ranked 39th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Limerick councillors get the cold shoulder

He said there was one member of council staff that he had dealt with on numerous occasions by phone and email and didn’t even know what this person looked like as he had never met them.Mr Crowe asked Cllr Galvin if had ever asked to meet this staff member in person.“No,” Cllr Galvin replied.Sinn Fein councillor Seamus Browne reminded the council executive that, as elected representatives, councillors were its “board of directors”.He asked Mr Crowe if there was any particular reason they were being “distanced” and not allowed access to local authority departments. He also said he feared there might be plans to change “points of contact” within the council for councillors.Mr Crowe insisted that he had never refused to meet with a councillor.“We will continue to engage with the councillors but that doesn’t mean that you need to be sitting next to me at my desk,” he said.
