Hyperion Project / Oyler Wu Collaborative

first_imgPhotographs:  Scott Mayoral, Dwayne OylerText description provided by the architects. Located on a vibrant commercial street in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, this building is a renovation of an existing 1930’s residential duplex. The project involves an ongoing series of interventions and transformations, beginning with the renovation of the building and growing to include a fence, with several (constantly evolving) additions in the works. The building includes the design office of Oyler Wu Collaborative, with a private residence located upstairs. The exterior of the building is an austere two-story volume clad in fiber-reinforced cement board with deep, recessed aluminum windows. The interior of the building combines exposed 1930’s wood frame construction with simple modern detailing.Follow the break for more photographs and drawings of this project.

Fox House / PIQUE Architecture

first_imgArchDaily CopySave this picture!© Alan BrandtText description provided by the architects. This home sits on a bluff overlooking rolling sagebrush meadows in Oregon’s High Desert with views of the Cascade Mountains dominating the western horizon. The owners requested an extremely durable and energy efficient home for their family. The request for a net zero house necessitated extensive use of photovoltaic panels, ground source heat-pumps, careful consideration of day lighting and shading strategies, and a super-insulated structure.Save this picture!© Alan BrandtItalian architect and childhood friend of the clients, Maria Chiara Trevisan created the original vision for the structure as a gift to them. The three masses, originally conceived as parallelepipedo (rectangular cubes) resting at various angles in the earth, evolved into three shelled structures clad in stone, a loose reference to the Three Sisters mountains which dominate the home’s view.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessYAP IM-Debris Competition Entry / Yalin Architectural DesignUnbuilt ProjectAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Fox House / PIQUE ArchitectureSave this projectSaveFox House / PIQUE ArchitectureSave this picture!© Nicole WernerHouses•Portland, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/352658/fox-house-pique-architecture Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/352658/fox-house-pique-architecture Clipboard Architects: PIQUE Architecture Area Area of this architecture project United States Year:  Projects “COPY” Photographs:  Nicole Werner, Alan Brandt, Bob Woodward Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2010 Fox House / PIQUE Architecture Area:  4175 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Manufacturers: Fleetwood+ 26 Share Photographs CopyAbout this officePIQUE ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortlandHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 01, 2013Cite: “Fox House / PIQUE Architecture” 01 Apr 2013.

Woodland is a small residential community nestled among a grove of large trees in a neighborhood that is just minutes outside of downtown Austin, Texas. The development started with a simple program of four houses, but quickly became complex through the site’s general conditions and restrictions. Unusual property lines, a steep bluff, and an abundance of old-growth trees squeezed the buildable area for the project. This, in turn, presented privacy and view concerns given the close proximity of each house to the surrounding trees, as well as one other. Along with these issues, permitting violations from a previous owner had to be overcome.Save this picture!© Craig WashburnSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Craig WashburnRather than seeing these challenges as problematic, Derrington Building Studio chose to embrace the issues and allowed the constraints to influence the design.  The result produced a unique experience that provides both ample space, and a sense of privacy for each dwelling, while weaving between the trees and their roots.  The windows were carefully placed to maximize indirect light and views of the surrounding greenery, while also minimizing less desirable lines of sight.Save this picture!© Craig WashburnThe material palette for the project was selected based on a simple aesthetic and an appreciation of economy and durability. Tall, pre-manufactured windows are arranged in vertical bands within each dwelling to accentuate the height of each space and capture framed views.  White-painted gypsum walls sit atop an exposed concrete retaining wall that submerges one house waist-deep into the site, creating a novel sense of privacy.  This design choice also prevents the home from becoming an imposing structure which looms over the landscape. The white cement board exterior elevations are intended to be a clean backdrop to the organic and unrestrained vegetation on the site.  The development forms a unified and intriguing community of dwellings that create a backdrop for the surrounding trees, while also utilizing them to offer a wooded reprieve from a busy city life.Save this picture!© Craig WashburnProject gallerySee allShow lessN Tower Garden / namuarchitectsSelected ProjectsGallery: OMA’s Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Photographed by Laurian GhinitoiuArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/775033/woodland-residences-derrington-building-studio Clipboard Photographs United Stateslast_img read more

Charlottesville: Watershed in the united struggle against fascism

first_imgThe following is a statement from Workers World Party, which sent many of its members to Charlottesville, Va., to beat back the Nazis and Klan who marched there.The coming out into the light of day of an openly fascist movement in the United States, as happened on Aug. 11-12 in Charlottesville, Va., confirms at least three things about the state of this country.First, the media manipulation and financial maneuvering by a significant far-rightwing section of the billionaire class to get one of their own into the White House has emboldened the most racist, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, misogynist, male-supremacist, murderous scum of this decaying capitalist society.Second, the progressive movement that has grown in defense of the rights of workers, oppressed Black, Latinx and Native communities, women, LGBTQ people and immigrants refuses to be cowed by these heavily armed thugs. Those protesting the Nazis and KKK fought back with incredible valor in Charlottesville.And third, the police and other repressive forces of this capitalist “democracy” are no protection against the ultra-right. Indeed, they allowed the gun- and club-toting bigots to hold a Nazi and Klan-type “torchlight” parade through the city — something that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. The progressive movement needs to continue to be self-reliant, combative and united.The fascists were almost exclusively white men. The counter-protesters represented a united front in action of a broad spectrum of people, predominantly young, from every demographic in this country. It was an inspiring glimpse of the kind of unity and solidarity that is needed to overcome the bigots and the plutocrats, end the daily violence against the oppressed, and bring about revolutionary social change.Those in the ruling establishment who see their reputation in tatters are appalled by what happened, but not for the right reasons. They want to continue to exploit and dominate most of the world, but behind a veil of “democracy” and “human rights.”They cringed when Trump first publicly commented on the murderous attack by one of the fascists, who gunned his car into a dense crowd of protesters, killing activist Heather Heyer and wounding dozens more. The bigot-in-chief could not bring himself to even mention the groups responsible, saying he condemned “many sides, many sides.” Three days after the atrocity occurred, they finally got him to go before the cameras a second time and read from a script in which the racists and Nazis were named.The events in Charlottesville will long be remembered as a watershed in the developing movement to tear down the walls of white supremacy and all forms of bigotry and unite the popular forces fighting for a better world. The people are showing by their actions that only by taking the fight for justice into their own hands, with no confidence in the organs of state power, can they make progress.On Aug. 14, youths in Durham, N.C., tore down a Confederate statue with their own hands, expressing their fury at the murder in Charlottesville.Long live the independent struggle of this new progressive movement against the fascists, the cops and the capitalist establishment!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Victory in Detroit hotel strike

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Striking hotel workers in Detroit were staying strong on Oct. 29 – they remained on the picket line 24 hours a day for a month for the win.After almost a month of 24-hour pickets at the swank Westin Book Cadillac hotel in downtown Detroit, UNITE HERE Local 24 has reached a settlement with the Marriott-owned hotel. While details have not been made public, a union news release indicated that its concerns about wages, healthcare costs and working conditions have been addressed.Workers on the line were jubilant when they got the news Nov. 3. The victory came shortly after the news media acknowledged what Local 24 had been saying for weeks: The hotel’s vacancy rate, normally around 10 percent, had risen to 60 or 70 percent as a result of the strike. Even then supervisors and the few workers who scabbed could not keep up with basic housekeeping.One of the chants on the noisy lines, where a drumbeat was constant during the hours the city allowed it, was “Dirty rooms! Dirty sheets! Take your business down the street!” Some notables did just that, including the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team and pop superstar Elton John.After the 160 housekeepers, cooks and other workers walked off the job, a constant stream of supporters stopped by to walk the line with them. The strike shut down the hotel’s Starbucks store, so a sign offered an alternative: Have coffee with the strikers.Congratulatory tweets have been arriving, including from other UNITE HERE locals that are still striking Marriott around the country. Two days before the victory, leaders of the worldwide walkout at Google tweeted solidarity.Local 24 tweeted: “Union workers at the Westin Book Cadillac proved that even in a right-to-work state, when working people stand in solidarity, we win.”last_img read more

Los Angeles Metro Board Approves $6 Billion Budget with Reduced Service Plan

We all know that this is the worst economic moment of our lives collectively … We’ve never experienced this.”Transit services are expected to remain at 81% of pre-COVID levels through at least the rest of the year, with boardings averaging at 55% of capacity.However, people who spoke at the meeting said they need services restored to their levels prior to the pandemic.Members of the Bus Riders Union of Los Angeles said the cuts will continue to affect essential workers, such as medical workers, grocery workers and others.Garcetti said the reduced services are not a cut to the bus and rail lines, but services were reduced to make up some of the lost $1.2 billion in revenue from last fiscal year.The mayor said the board’s action to continue with reduced services also comes with a priority to restore those services as soon as possible.“I want to reassure people that that’s a commonly held value,” Garcetti said. “We will (seek) to increase bus service as we need it.”Garcetti said he’s also hopeful of a short-term solution from the federal government to provide more money to cities and transportation agencies in the near future, which would take some of the sting out of the pandemic’s economic downturn.Los Angeles Councilman Mike Bonin, who sits on the Metro Board, said he had concerns that the buses may be more crowded than the agency thinks because people who need to get to work need to get on the bus.“What I’m experiencing is that we’re not currently running enough service to avoid crowded buses even by our own standards,” Bonin said. “We’re communicating through riders that it’s up to them to avoid the crowded buses and they’re better off waiting.”Bonin said the cordoned areas of the first few rows of the buses to protect drivers from COVID-19 were not taken into consideration in the report for the board regarding capacity. The councilman was the lone dissenting vote on that item related to the budget.The board is expected to receive a report back in 60 days on current service and ridership levels to determine when services could be fully restored or allow more people on Metro vehicles.Some of the highlights to the budget Metro presented were that no full- time employees will be laid off and union workers’ wages will increase up to 4.5% per the collective bargaining agreements.The budget also calls for $7 million in is NextGen buses for service enhancement and $123 million for other bus improvements.For the Gold Line Extension Project, the board approved an additional $100 million for a total of $265 million, which will extend the line from Azuza to Montclair.But the board also considered risks to the budget including future declines in sales tax revenue and the effects the COVID-19 pandemic could bring in the coming months. Costs of materials could also rise faster than inflation during this time, according to the board.

Report Questions Effectiveness of Fed’s Crisis-Era Purchases

The paper in question was entitled “A Skeptical View of the Impact of the Fed’s Balance Sheet,” and its authors included authors include Morgan Stanley Senior Desk Economist David Greenlaw, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Head of Global Economic Research Ethan Harris, University of Wisconsin economics professor Kenneth West, and University of California economist James Hamilton.As reported by CNBC, the paper argues that “the consensus view that the Fed’s quantitative easing lowered 10-year Treasury yields by 1 percentage point (100 basis points) was overstated, and that Fed asset purchases did not have as much impact on long Treasury yields as generally believed.” Instead, it claims that the effects of the Fed’s crisis-era actions on 10-year yields were temporary.”Going forward, we expect the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet to stay large,” the paper states, continuing to argue that “the most important and reliable instrument of monetary policy is the short-term interest rate.”New York Fed President William Dudley countered the paper’s arguments in a statement posted on the New York Fed’s official website. Dudley said, “While additional study of the effects of large-scale asset purchase (LSAP) programs should be encouraged—as it furthers our understanding of the use of these unconventional monetary policy tools—the paper’s findings do not, in my mind, invalidate the use of LSAPs when the Federal Reserve is operating at or close to the zero lower bound for short-term interest rates. That is the key issue—not the magnitude of the effects of LSAPs or whether short-term interest rates should be the primary tool of monetary policy.”Dudley went on to argue that “LSAPs remain useful to have in the toolkit for those times when the short-term interest rate tool may not be available.”On Friday, the Federal Reserve delivered its semi-annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress, noting widespread improvements in the U.S. economy and an uptick inflation near the end of 2017. The report stated the Fed’s belief that inflation will continue to stay at or near the Fed’s target rate of 2 percent during 2018. The report did not shed much light on whether the Fed plans three or four interest rate hikes in 2018, but more may be revealed when new Fed Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress on Wednesday, February 28.
