Can an architecture be a critique in its environment?Can an architecturebe an antithesis in its neighborhood?Can an architecture deconstruct a physical establishment?Then re-question the essence of living?Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThis small house is located on 8mx20m lot in Pondok Indah district. Although it is a part of a gated community, this building islocated on the edge of small river, with indigeneous (urban) village settlementsright across the river. Pondok Indah in South Jakarta is a residential area/gated community which is indeed successfully built in the 80’s. Since then until this moment, Pondok Indah is being a symbolic status. Some of the most successful parliament member in Jakarta as well as some celebrities who come from other regions feel like it is a must to have a house in this area. These symbols of success, aside from where it is located, generally showed by its architecture language. For instance, some structural columns which similar as it is in Italy or France – with its artificial face. These pillars show a success. To answer this challenge, I start to question the homeowner whether she still needs those symbols or vice versa? It turns out that she agrees to demolish this situation by deconstructing this common discourse, tilting the whole house to be something that almost fall down.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando GomulyaIt is an extreme antithesis. Architects is given a discretion to observe the environment and react with this proposal. This house is also next door with one of the Indonesian musician, Ahmad Dhani. Dhani’s house is painted all black whereas this house is all white. This unintentionally coincidence reinforce RumahMiring(Slanted House) as an architecture which criticize its environment. Architecture as a critique device in its environment.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe room function of the house uses a new sequence where the public area is placed on the first Level, it is consist of a pantry, study area and a swimming pool. Second level is functioned for more private rooms such as a master bedroom, wardrobe and master bathroom. The 16m2 bathroom area acts as a response to the current trend of urban lifestyle who normally spend more time in a bathroom where users are able to have more quiet time, a contemplative room as well as a resting place while using smartphones, reading newspaper or social media as a communication device.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe top level is used for a lounge and a guest room. In the building section, we can see and define that the private area is put in the middle, like a sandwich between the more public areas.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe whole building relies on the steel structure as a representative of a modern housing which depends on fabrication. The square framework is now agreed to be slanted as a symbol of instability, a deconstruction of an established situation around.Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaNote: This project was originally published in  29 December, 2015.Project gallerySee allShow lessNaman Retreat Pure Spa / MIA Design StudioSelected ProjectsHigh School in Boulogne / Mikou StudioSelected Projects Share Projects Houses Photographs Area:  321 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” 2015 Photographs:  Fernando Gomulya+ 23Curated by Fernanda Castro Share Slanted House / Budi Pradono ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSlanted House / Budi Pradono Architects CopyAbout this officeBudi Pradono ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKebayoran LamaIcebergIndonesiaPublished on June 22, 2019Cite: “Slanted House / Budi Pradono Architects” 22 Jun 2019.

Council shortlisted for Gathering award

first_imgTwitter The formal launch of Limerick Gatherings outside King John’s CastlePhoto: Sean CurtinStory by Alan JacquesSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] City and County Council’s work in promoting the Limerick International Fashion and Design Festival has earned the local authority a nomination for a prestigious national award.The Council has been shortlisted in the newly introduced ‘Gathering Award’ category of Chambers Ireland’s Excellence in Local Government Awards, organized in conjunction with the Department of the Environment .The Limerick International Fashion and Design Festival, organised by the Holman Lee Agency, is one of the city’s three flagship events for the Gathering. The event which takes place from October 29 to November 2 will see fashion students from all around the world competing for the title of International Fashion Student Designer.Gathering Limerick Coordinator, Mary Killeen Fitzgerald said the festival was not only in keeping with the ethos of the Gathering Ireland initiative but also helped to showcase Limerick to an international audience.“The fact that the festival has been shortlisted before the event has even taken place is testament to the many months of hard work carried out by the organising committee in conjunction with the Limerick Gathering Team based at City Hall. Unlike many other Gathering events, this festival will uniquely attract people who are not exclusively part of the diaspora to Ireland, many probably for the first time,” she explained.The Limerick International Fashion and Design Festival is one of 161 Gathering Limerick festivals and events taking place during 2013.

Council launches training scheme to help workers recognise stress

first_img Comments are closed. A rural borough council has introduced an innovative training programme tohelp its staff recognise and deal with symptoms of stress. Boston Borough Council, after receiving a grant from the DTI, developed thescheme to help council employees understand the increasingly widespreadcondition and prevent it from affecting their home or working lives. All line managers have attended training sessions that teach them how tospot signs of stress, assess the risks and, if necessary, support their staffcorrectly. Junior staff have also received stress awareness training which includessessions on recognition, positive coping strategies, support mechanisms andrelaxation techniques. Katharine Nundy, a personnel officer at the council, which employs around400 staff, said she hoped the measures would also help fulfil the HSE stressmanagement standards, due to be introduced next year. “It has helped our staff understand stress and really raised awarenessof the problem. It’s such a buzzword at the moment but not everybody knows whatit really means. “We also hope this will help with the HSE rules and in reflection, Ithink it will enable us to meet some of them,” she said. Boston was awarded money from the DTI Partnership Fund following a stressaudit in 2001 which identified some hotspots among frontline staff, especiallywhere they dealt with the public.

Press release: Route unveiled for major new road and junction at Black Cat

first_img This major new dual carriageway between St Neots and Cambridge and upgrade for the Black Cat junction will mean quicker and safer journeys for people and will also boost the economy and unlock housing. As well as significant improvements locally, the project will be a vital component in improving the regional and national road network. The improvements will complement our £1.5bn A14 upgrade and form part of a wider transformation of road links between Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford. Well over 4,000 people took part in our consultation last year, with more than 2,000 people attending one of our public events, and it is great to see that our proposals have such strong backing. I would like to thank everyone who took part for their contribution in helping to shape this vital upgrade for the area’s road network. With the options now chosen, we can push ahead with a more detailed design, which we will put to people for their input again later this year. In a project that will improve a key east-west road link, journeys on the A1, the A421 and the A428 will be improved by a new three tier junction at the Black Cat roundabout in Bedfordshire, which will allow drivers to pass through the junction uninterrupted, while keeping the roundabout clear for drivers making turns between the roads.And a brand new, 10 mile dual carriageway will link directly between the upgraded Black Cat junction and the Caxton Gibbet roundabout near Cambourne in Cambridgeshire, with a new junction at Cambridge road and new bridges. The existing A428 will become a local road serving communities between St Neots and Caxton Gibbet.Options for the new road scheme were put to the public in 2017, and the route being announced today (18 February 2018) combines the best mix of benefits and were also the most popular options at consultation. The chosen options were referred to at the consultation as the Orange Route and Option C respectively.Highways England project lead Lee Galloway said: Currently, the A428 between the A1 at Black Cat and the A1198 at Caxton Gibbet is a single carriageway with a series of roundabouts and give-way junctions. It experiences severe congestion and delays during peak periods or if there is an incident in the wider South Cambridgeshire area. The improvements will cut the average peak time journeys between the Black Cat and Caxton Gibbet junctions by more than a third – around a 10 minute saving on every trip.The improvements will tackle these delays by creating a new dual carriageway, with junctions served by slip roads, and bridges to carry local roads over it. The new dual carriageway will lead directly to the Black Cat junction which is itself being upgraded to allow smoother, safer access between the A1, the A421 and the A428. The A428 currently joins the A1 at Wyboston 1.5 miles to the north.Retaining the existing A428 for local traffic will offer significant benefits for communities along the route, while four new routes for pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians will maintain and improve access across the new road.Three options for the new road were put to the public in 2017, along with three options for the junction upgrade. The chosen options announced today were referred to at the consultation as the Orange Route and Option C respectively. 89 percent of respondents agreed with the need for the upgrade, with a clear majority of respondents backing the options chosen today (83 per cent for the Orange route and 60 per cent for Option C).The scheme is valued between £810m and £1.4bn, and is being funded by the Government’s £15bn Road Investment Strategy, the biggest investment in road infrastructure since the 1970s.Today’s announcement paves the way for a further, more detailed consultation later in 2019, and a planning application, expected in 2020. Subject to statutory processes, main construction work on the upgrade could start before April 2022.For more information about the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet improvements and to keep up to date, visit the scheme web page.General enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer.last_img read more

Notre Dame students help Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s DNC chair campaign

first_imgSouth Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg announced he was joining the race for Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Jan. 5. On Feb. 25, 447 members of the DNC will vote in Atlanta for the new chair. Until then, a group of 15 to 20 students from Notre Dame are working with members of the South Bend community on Buttigieg’s campaign. “I think you can tell that he’s genuine, and you know that he has your best interests at heart,” fifth-year student Bryan Ricketts said. “ … He did that with South Bend and the business community, he did it with college students and he did it with the communities that were disadvantaged. Generating action is what makes him such a compelling person and why I think he’d be great in the DNC chair.”Some of the students traveled to the Detroit Forum on Feb. 3 and 4 to support Buttigieg and talk to DNC members about why they were rallying for him. Senior Andrew Galo said they focused on “visibility” and relaying Buttigieg’s story and message. “[The forums are] exciting; they’re fast-paced; they’re high-energy,” he said. “Basically, [they are] day-long events with panel debates with all the candidates for the various offices. … The whole day consists of them debating. “Each campaign will have a table or a booth. We had South Bend goodies to hand out and platforms and buttons and stickers and all that. It’s basically a glorified school council election throughout the whole day.” The next forum students attended was in Baltimore on Saturday. Galo, who attended both the Detroit and Baltimore forums, said seeing a young person make a difference in the Democratic party was inspiring. “[Buttigieg is] so accessible, and he’s really sought out every member of our community to bring them together and work for the city,” he said. “ … For us, as college students, it’s really great to have a member of our generation moving forward with the party. We’re millennials and we’ve got a bad rap; he’s a millennial too, and he’s looking to bridge that gap.”Sophomore Prathm Juneja, who interned with Buttigieg as a freshman, said his story is “so inspiring”: Buttigieg attended Harvard as an undergraduate before being named a Rhodes Scholar, served in the U.S. Navy Reserves and was the first openly gay executive in Indiana.“[On Sunday], he had two fundraisers in Chicago, and he asked me if I could get four volunteers,” he said. “We went up to Chicago, and it was great. We basically just help out in anyway possible. That was organizing the events and getting them ready and decorating them and greeting people when they enter — anything to show how incredible [Buttigieg] is.”If Buttigieg wins the chair, Ricketts said he has high hopes and expectations for the mayor to revitalize the Democratic party. “One of the biggest struggles of the Democratic party is clearly connecting to voters,” he said. “There were huge losses and it’s not just about the presidency — it’s about the Congress, it’s about the state governors and the state legislators and even the local races. “I think [Buttigieg], being a local guy, understands that winning the mayor’s race and winning the clerk’s race and winning the treasurer’s race, the sheriff, the school board; those are all important. … If we can build a party that recognizes it starts [locally] rather than in Washington, we’ll be much better off.”Tags: College Democrats, DNC chair, Pete Buttigieglast_img read more
