The project is about a house located in Maitencillo, Chile. The plot is situated close to the most rural area of ​​the town and far from the coastal edge, being a quiet place, isolated from the bustle and the summer collapse of the beach. The Coastal Mountain Range is the main surrounding view of the site and the sea panorama becomes a country backyard.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe strategy is created from the orientation of the land and the specific position of the elements of the environment: The longitudinal development of the property is defined in the north-south direction, while the width, in the east-west direction.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreSave this picture!Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreTo the north is the street of the neighborhood and a line of houses that look towards the site of the project, therefore as a first guideline it is decided to open the house to the south, giving the “back” Towards the street, dividing the project into two wings, through a corridor. The services areas are oriented to the north, while the bedrooms and living/dining room are to the south.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreOpening the enclosures to the south involves some disadvantages and at the same time opportunities: An indirect and sifted light but at the same time colder spaces. Hence it is taken as a second guideline to use a northern skylight to go along with the corridor. This element is responsible for nourishing with natural light for a big part of the day and gradually heat the bedrooms for cold nights.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreSave this picture!Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThe management of the natural light and the control of the views define a façade proposal that gives the house on its most exposed face a continuous treatment through a wooden framework that opens in the patios corresponding to the bathrooms, letting enter the light but covering any direct view towards the interior of the enclosures.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreThis house is designed according to a defined user: A married couple of older adults and their son with physical mobility problems, therefore the layout is developed on one level, lifting the house through a table of buried wooden piles in the sand. The difference between the levels was solved with a ramp in the access and another ramp to descend to the backyard. In this way, the approach of the house makes the physiognomy of the land coexist with a plant extended on its longest side.Save this picture!© Pablo Casals AguirreProject gallerySee allShow lessBlack Mirror: What Can it Teach us About the Future of Architecture?ArticlesWhite Arkitekter’s New Take on Traditional Swedish Cold BathhousesArchitecture News Share Felipe Giannini, Sergio Villarroel ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920611/la-divisa-house-gvaa Clipboard Chile CopyAbout this officeGVAAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMaitencilloChilePublished on July 09, 2019Cite: “La Divisa House / GVAA” [Casa la divisa / GVAA] 09 Jul 2019.

We had the opportunity to acquire a property at a very favorable price in a prominent location in the village of Beringen in Klettgau. We wanted to use this to implement our idea of architecture by means of a replacement building. In order for this to succeed, cooperation with the municipality was crucial, in addition to countless structural and official aspects. Thanks to the resulting partnership between the municipality, the client, and the architect, it was possible to realize a building that offers added value for the site and the community at large. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenAttitude. The «Haus zum Pudel» was also born from the will to develop a piece of the village and to show our architectural attitude. This goal was pursued tenaciously despite unfavorable economic conditions. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenLocation. In a prominent location, a piece of the village was repaired. Instead of the 60-year-old kiosk with a bus stop and a nested, hardly habitable residential building, there is now a striking volume. This follows the street space with a bend. At the rear, reference is made to the existing neighboring property. The outdoor space belonging to the property is at the same time a public space. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofMan. The site helped dictate the space program: A bus stop combined with a store and two small studios for people who are looking for a home outside the standardized residential world. The uses adapt to the conditions of the site. This creates unfamiliar but also liberating situations that invite people to appropriate the architecture. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ladina BischofDialogue. Intensive dialogues and negotiations over years were necessary to find good solutions for all parties involved. A good solution means that everyone experiences added value: Through a private initiative, the community receives a new, distinctive building that enhances the public space. In return, it has contributed to the financing with a loan, as well as providing guarantees for the rental of the studios. The neighborhood benefits from the clarification of the situation. The villagers get next to the bus stop a quality outdoor space, which invites people to meet. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenGeneralist. The house is characterized by the effort to discuss as many aspects as possible, from the setting to the detail. The architect should increasingly return to the building with its myriad facets, understanding the construction and building methods. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofCraft. From the beginning, the goal was to create an architecture of value with simple materials refined by craftsmanship. The unrendered masonry, the exposed concrete or the solid wooden floors show traces of the work process. Cladding and partially recycled materials distinguish certain places and create an exciting counterpart to the otherwise raw appearance. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofConstruction. Comprehensible construction in concrete, stone, and wood creates credibility. A cavity wall, braced by the interior concrete walls, supports the wood roof. Load distribution and construction are readable and allow users to appropriate the house. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofMaterial. Where possible, the materials were untreated and directly installed. In this way, they develop a presence and immediacy that is linked to rural architecture. The installations are surface-mounted and allow multiple uses, e.g. as a holder for the showerhead. Repairs and adjustments are easy to carry out. The functioning of the installation is comprehensible and trustworthy. The quality of the raw material and construction is deliberately shown. The specially designed apparatuses and fittings also reflect engagement with the task. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofSensuality. The architecture conveys a new image in the village fabric. At the same time, the form, the type of openings, and the materialization are familiar to the people through the history of the place. This creates something new and familiar. The building, with its small, rectangular openings, the stone-framed, large-format entrances, the narrow canopy, as well as the solid materialization, is remotely reminiscent of the «Trotten», which can be found in every village in the area. Save this picture!© Ladina BischofCourage and curiosity. We have embarked on an adventure with no certain outcome, trusting that the courage will pay off. But only the history of the future will show whether the structure will prove its worth. Save this picture!© Schaub Stierli FotografenProject gallerySee allShow lessVertical Partitions Redefine Spaces Quickly, Easily, and with StyleArticlesGoogle Gets Approval for Downtown West Campus Designed by SITELAB Urban StudioArchitecture News Share 2021 Photographs:  Schaub Stierli Fotografen, Ladina Bischof Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: KWC, Seves Glassblock, Bremo, Laufen AG, System Murfor Haus zum Pudel / Marazzi ReinhardtSave this projectSaveHaus zum Pudel / Marazzi Reinhardt “COPY” CopyHouses•Beringen, Switzerlandlast_img read more

Insights into public’s feelings about restarting in-person events revealed

first_imgThe type of event people said they were most interested in participating in is something ‘fun’, with 41% ranking this top overall, compared to 30% favouring a ‘challenge’ and 9% a ‘race’.42% for example were interested in map-based virtual events, where participants run the distance of a famous course and have milestones flagged. On reasons to take part in map-based challenges, 44% said it sounded more fun than a normal virtual event, and 45% stated it was safer than a mass participation activity. More key findingsGiving remains stable: three months ago, 69% of those surveyed said they had donated to charity, & that total has stayed the same three months on.35% of people saying they felt more positive towards charities and the work they do, compared with 4% saying they felt less positive.40% of the public have not made any form of cash donation to charity since before the pandemic started. 26% want to use cash for donations going forward, with the majority (51%) choosing online as their preferred method.40% of the public have made donations online over the last three months.Direct donations via charity websites have risen from 40% during the initial lockdown to 48% during the last three months.This 8% rise in direct donations is nearly matched by a 7% rise in brand recall over the same period. Overall 78% of donors giving directly to a charity can remember the name of the organisation compared to only 63% using consumer giving platforms.Those who’ve given in the last three months are far more likely to give than those who haven’t, with 86% of recent donors likely to give again and 24% of those who haven’t given planning to donate soon.Commenting on the research, Chester Mojay-Sinclare, Enthuse Founder and CEO, said:“Charities have a lot to consider in their fundraising strategy as events begin to return. While the public wants to get involved and engaged with fundraising activities, they have mixed feelings about when and how to do so. Charities will need to find a balance to achieve communicating ‘having fun’ and ’staying safe’ to appeal to the broadest audience of supporters. As well as their events strategy, charities also need to start to think about a world focused around online donations. The pandemic has accelerated the shift away from hard cash to digital donations in all formats – this fundamental change should be at the heart of future fundraising strategies.”  512 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: fundraising events mass participation events research Insights into public’s feelings about restarting in-person events revealed About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Melanie May | 24 March 2021 | News With the government’s roadmap out of lockdown providing the opportunity to restart in-person fundraising events, a report from Enthuse has revealed insights into how the public may be feeling about these.Among the 1,015 people surveyed for the third edition of Enthuse’s quarterly Donor Pulse report, three quarters (73%) of respondents said they still had some concerns about taking part in mass participation events in the next three to six months. However, 45% said they were happy to take part in hybrid events, while just over half (52%) would be encouraged to take part if they could choose whether they did it virtually or in-person.Generally, the under 40s were the most interested in getting involved with events in the next six months, with 43% of 18–24 year olds and 45% of 25–39 year olds saying they were likely to get involved.

Call for proof of ambassador’s claim that journalist is still alive

first_img October 27, 2020 Find out more Organisation Reports Reporters Without Borders wonders how much credence should be given to a claim by Eritrean ambassador to Israel Tesfamariam Tekeste Debbas, in a comment to journalists this week in Tel Aviv, that Dawit Isaac, a journalist who was arrested in 2001, is still alive.Isaac, who co-founded the independent newspaper Setit in 1997, was arrested on 23 September 2001 in the course of a round-up of journalists and government critics, and was last seen alive in detention in January 2010.Defending the arrest of Isaac, a holder of dual Swedish and Eritrean nationality, the Eritrean ambassador to Israel added: “When he comes and doesn’t follow the country’s laws, he must be punished.”Reporters Without Borders condemns the lack of information about Isaac’s fate and expects more from the Eritrean government than a casual aside from one of its ambassadors. Many questions remain unanswered.“We call on the government to produce solid evidence proving that Dawit Isaac really is alive and to allow humanitarian organizations, his family and his lawyers to visit him in prison,” said Prisca Orsonneau, who heads the Reporters Without Borders legal unit.“The ambassador is demonstrating appalling cynicism when he says Isaac broke the law because Isaac has never been taken before a judge. He should have been taken before a judge within a month of his arrest. All our legal petitions about this case have gone unanswered.”Orsonneau added: “No only has the Eritrean supreme court not ruled on the habeas corpus petition submitted in June 2011, but the Eritrean government has yet to respond to the petition accepted by the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights in March 2013.”The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights agreed to examine the Isaac case last March in response to a petition submitted by three jurists in February. Eritrea failed to comply with its obligation to respond by November 2013.“We call on the Eritrean authorities to respond to this petition and to release Isaac and all the other journalists that they are holding illegally,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.Of the 11 journalists who were arrested in September 2011, Reporters Without Borders has established that at least seven of them have died in detention.Eritrea continued to be Africa’s biggest prison for journalists in 2013 with at least 28 detained.

Keen to pursue a new career in HR

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. From a non-HR PA background, I fell into a rewards analyst position, which Ihave been doing for two-and-a-half years. I have started studying for a CIPDqualification, and am very keen to pursue a career in HR. I want to move intorecruitment and selection as I think I am better suited to that area, but amfinding it impossible because I don’t have any recruitment experience. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy The skills required for recruitment and selection are quite different tothat of a rewards analyst. You need to analyse why you feel you are bettersuited to a recruitment and selection role. Once you have listed these keypoints, you need to incorporate them into your covering letter to potentialemployers. What are the development opportunities with your current employer?There may be an opportunity to move into a more generalist HR role thatincludes recruitment. This will give you a chance to test whether this isreally what you want to specialise in. With a lot of organisations eitherfreezing recruitment or keeping it to a minimum, there are less opportunitiesat present. The opportunities which are around are more likely to be filled bysomeone with experience. Johanna Simons, HR consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes Have you tried to move internally within your current organisation? Not onlywould it give you some practical experience but would give you the opportunityto see if you are suited to recruitment. If your current organisation will not oblige, you should consider doing acompetency-based CV which highlights your skills rather than your experience.For example, influencing, organisational and project management skills will allbe key. You should then look for work within the large corporations, which are morelikely to have a reasonable-sized recruitment function. It may be that youshould be considering going in as an administrator. If you are convincedrecruitment is the right thing to do, be prepared to drop your salary in orderto make that first vital move. If you are doing something you are reallyfocused on, development and financial reward will come. Doug Knott, senior consultant, Chiumento It would be interesting to explore your reasons for wanting to move intorecruitment and selection. Given your experience and CIPD studies, you may wishto consider moving into a generalist role. Such roles usually have a strongrecruitment component, which would enable you to obtain the exper-ience neededto specialise in this area later. Assuming you decide to pursue your current goal, examine what developmentactions you could take to improve your employability. Consider short courses ininterviewing skills or psychometrics to demonstrate your commitment to moveinto this area. Another option would be to work for a recruitment agency whichwill employ people with no previous recruitment experience. Such roles do tendto be a mixture of recruitment/selection and sales but will help you gain theright experience. Your current role gives you useful insights into the employment market. Inyour job applications, make sure you bring out the value of this knowledge. Previous Article Next Article Keen to pursue a new career in HROn 11 Jun 2002 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
