Haines House is located in the inner city Sydney suburb of Newtown, in an area that is steadily displaying evidence of gentrification in the general upgrade of the surrounding urban fabric. The immediate context is comprised of predominantly single storey attached and semi-detached residences with intermittent 2 storey dwellings and 3 to 4 storey apartment blocks.Save this picture!plansRecommended ProductsWindowsVEKAWindows – SOFTLINE 82 ADWindowsStudcoSteel Window Reveal – EzyRevealWindowsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Casement Windows – Rabel 8400 Slim Super Thermal PlusWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensThe proposal involved the complete refurbishment of an existing single storey semi-detached dwelling with the addition of an open plan volume beyond the original rear existing roof plane, to improve the physical and visual relationships to the new rear garden, while harnessing improved access to sunlight, natural ventilation and views to borrowed landscapes and sky beyond. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe generation of the design entailed two formal strategies: Save this picture!© Brett Boardman1. A clear response to place in three acts involved extrapolating the line of the rear roof pitch of the immediate adjoined dwelling to generate the form of the singular roof and ceiling plane, extruding this to the extent of the rear setback alignment of this adjoined dwelling in plan, followed by the extension of an existing low roof level along the unadjoined eastern edge to the new rear footprint – under which a long ‘working wall’ spine accommodates a kitchen, storage and varying configurations of joinery, extending outside to accommodate a second toilet with basin.

The retention of the original front dwelling and centrally located bathroom enabled old and new fabric to stitch and enmesh an alternating sequence of compression and expansion, enfolding a series of expressed rooms from the narrow hall and front cellular 3-room layout, to open release in a newly accommodated Living room, followed by a compressed scale shift and downward change in level via an almost secreted passage into the new heightened rear openness of a Dining, Kitchen, second Living space.

An arrangement of fine steel plate supports and banks of highlight louvred and fixed windows march along and above the entire eastern low roofed working wall, bridging the high and low roofs and wrapping to the rear southern orientation, while a series of pocket concealed timber framed sliding doors extend the living spaces onto a roofed terrace that directly connects to the enclosed private garden and surround borrowed landscape beyond.Save this picture!sections 01Project gallerySee allShow lessCultural and Spiritual Russian Orthodox Center in Paris / DATA ArchitectesArticlesAstrium Nature Select Shop / Popular ArchitectureArticles Share Area:  115 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/105210/haines-house-christopher-polly-architect Clipboard CopyAbout this officeChristopher Polly ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSydneyHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on January 23, 2011Cite: “Haines House / Christopher Polly Architect” 23 Jan 2011.

Israeli government openly threatens journalists planning to sail with Gaza flotilla

first_img News News Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en to go further WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Reporters Without Borders condemns the Israeli government’s attempts to intimidate journalists who plan to travel with a flotilla of ships that will set sail in the next few days in an attempt to break Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip.In a message sent to journalists yesterday, Israeli Government Press Office director Oren Helman said media personnel sailing with the flotilla would be deliberately violating Israeli law and could be denied entry to Israel for 10 years. Their equipment could also be impounded and they might be subject to “additional sanctions,” he added.“The threats made by the Israeli authorities are unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They deny the rights to impart and receive news and information, rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Israeli constitution. “Without media coverage, the public is likely to be misinformed about the attempted delivery of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip. Journalists must be allowed to do their work without being threatened or intimidated. This announcement violates the fundamental principles which Israel claims to espouse.”Reporters Without Borders has been told that dozens of foreign journalists plan to be aboard the flotilla, as well as an Israeli journalist working for the Tel Aviv-based daily Haaretz. In response to an outcry about yesterday’s announcement, the Israeli prime minister today said the government was reviewing its position.A similar “Freedom Flotilla” tried in May 2010 to break the blockade that Israeli has maintained on the Gaza population ever since Hamas seized power in 2006. A total of 19 passengers were killed and 36 others were wounded when the Israeli military intercepted the flotilla at sea. The Israeli authorities imposed a temporary blackout on information about the dead and injured and their transfer to hospitals in Israel.More than 60 journalists travelling with the flotilla were arrested, taken back to Israel and then deported. Their equipment was confiscated and many of them are still waiting for it to be returned (http://en.rsf.org/israel-journalists-on-intercepted-14-06-2010,37735.html).

Universities as peacemakers

first_imgHarvard Divinity School (HDS) Dean David Hempton knows too well the cost of religious conflict. As a college student in Belfast in the 1970s, he witnessed the “tragedies of violence” that marked “The Troubles” between the Catholic and Protestant communities in Northern Ireland.But Hempton also saw “inspiring examples of people of faith on both sides of that division using religion to overcome violence and promote understanding and healing,” he told a crowd at HDS Monday evening.Following an “overwhelming” response to his inaugural 2012 convocation address about those difficult years in his homeland, Hempton said he began to understand “the power of exploring practical ways for HDS and the University to make even more of a difference in our world.”One of those practical exercises unfolded Monday as a panel of experts versed in religion, pluralism, politics, conflict resolution, and international peace gathered to explore how universities can help create interreligious dialogues, collaboration, and peacemaking.The group agreed that universities are uniquely poised to help educate people about the myriad dimensions and shared values of the world’s religions, to forge interdisciplinary connections that shed light on how religion can influence conflict, poverty, and the environment, and to convene scholars, experts, and the public for far-ranging, multifaith discussions.Offering a political perspective was Shaun Casey, an ethicist and special adviser to the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for faith-based community initiatives. The HDS and Harvard Kennedy School graduate said his new department is part of “a quiet revolution” of engagement with religious leaders and communities around issues of pluralism, regional security and stability, and humanitarian efforts. Harvard can help in that effort, Casey said, by creating joint degree programs that combine areas such as law, international relations, and development with religious studies.“Who is going to train the people I need to hire?” Casey wondered aloud. “We do not have people who are well-trained on the political side as well as the religious studies side. Harvard is uniquely poised to overcome that.”Matthew Hodes, director of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, said his organization is one of many that are planning systems and doctrine based on the best ways to use intercultural and interreligious dialogue “as a bridging element in our policy.” For help in that endeavor, Hodes said he wouldn’t hesitate to turn to Harvard Law School’s (HLS) Program on Negotiation.“It is a globally understood leader in the field of not only practice, but also the development of doctrine on everything from interparty negotiations on a bilateral level to multilateral mediation. And I would suggest to those of you who are interested in pursing dialogue processes, this is the place where the synergy that exists at Harvard needs to be applied the most.”Harvard’s Jocelyne Cesari echoed Casey’s call for universities to develop an interdisciplinary approach to studying and understanding religion. Too often, said Cesari, a lecturer on Islamic studies and a research associate at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, her American colleagues in political science harbor inhibitions when it comes to religion.“One of the major arguments I receive all the time is, ‘Oh, we don’t do theology.’ And this cuts the dialogue right there,” Cesari said. “How can you work together if you don’t take into account also what your colleague does?”HLS Dean Martha Minow, whose experience with conflict and human rights includes her work with the Independent International Commission on Kosovo, said the University can play a role by incorporating “discussion, debating, collaborating, and listening” skills further into the curriculum. “We don’t talk about it as explicitly as we ought to, even thought it’s the medium of our business,” said Minow.Universities can also be important places to convene varied discussions around religion, said Minow, and places to explore the overlap as well as the differences among religious traditions.“The risk of assuming that you understand is so much greater than the risk of saying ‘We are different’ … It’s the over-presumption that, I think, leads to the resentment, leads to the identity concerns. … I think that universities are places where people can talk about the content of religion.”Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security Institute and special representative of the United Religions Initiative, explained that creating a venue where dialogue, debate, and communion can freely take place is hugely important in forging an ethical foundation for global community.“I believe that if Harvard were to create such a multidisciplinary, multidimensional place, it would really electrify the academic world,” he said.Harvard’s Diana Eck, professor of comparative religion and Indian studies at HDS and Fredric Wertham Professor of Law and Psychiatry in Society, moderated the panel. HDS professor Diana L. Eck moderated this panel discussion, featuring: Martha Minow, Dean of Harvard Law School; Shaun Casey, MDiv ’83, ThD ’98, special advisor to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for faith-based community initiatives; Jocelyne Cesari, Lecturer on Islamic Studies at HDS and director of Harvard’s Islam in the West Program; Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security Institute and special representative of the United Religions Initiative; and Matthew Hodes, director of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOrxjAhz2UE” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/HOrxjAhz2UE/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a>center_img Religions & Peace: Do Universities Have a Role?last_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse basketball to escape scare against Virginia Tech

The Orange last played on Saturday and took down Georgia Tech by three points. SU has won five of its last six contests.Here’s how beat writers Sam Blum, Jesse Dougherty and Matt Schneidman forecast the game.Sam Blum (16-7)Syracuse 75, Virginia Tech 74Hokie DokieVirginia Tech always makes it a fun game against Syracuse it seems, but for the past seven meetings, Syracuse has come out on top. Both will happen again on Tuesday, in a too-close-for-comfort win over Virginia Tech. The Orange needs to slow down Virginia Tech on offense and make sure they don’t get to the line too much, which is a big strength of the VT offense. At the end of the day, though, SU will by 6-5 in ACC play with everything looking up as it heads into the final month of the regular season.Jesse Dougherty (16-7)Syracuse 62, Virginia Tech 59Technical healingAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe key for Syracuse will keeping Virginia Tech off the foul line down the stretch, as the Hokies are one of the best in the country at drawing shooting fouls. If the Orange can do that, it can squeak out an ugly win over Virginia Tech just two days after squeaking out an ugly win over Georgia Tech. But ugly wins aside, if SU can go 3-0 while playing three games in six days it will be an outstanding accomplishment at this point of the season. Look for Michael Gbinije to carry his team to doing just that.Matt Schneidman (16-7)Syracuse 80, Virginia Tech 67Above groundVirginia Tech is the worst defensive team in conference, allowing an alarming 80.6 points per game in ACC play. The Hokies also surrender almost 39 rebounds per game which ranks worst in the league as well. The Orange’s rebounding has vastly improved in conference play and SU could have an offensive outburst a la Wake Forest. Look for a heavy dose of early 3s and a fast-paced attack to distance Syracuse from VT early on, pushing the Orange above .500 in the ACC for the first time.

Men’s basketball: Badgers face quick turnaround, take on North Dakota Tuesday

first_imgFor the Wisconsin men’s basketball team, it wasn’t the best start to their season, but the resiliency of these young Badgers ultimately shined through.After dropping their season opener in a shocking upset to Western Illinois Friday, UW bounced back in a big way against Siena Sunday, hammering the Saints 92-65. Now, with some confidence regained and the early-season jitters put aside, Wisconsin will look to build on their dominating performance when they take on North Dakota at the Kohl Center Tuesday.Men’s basketball: Career days from Bronson Koenig, Vitto Brown aid in domination of SienaLess than 48 hours removed from one of the worst losses in program history, the Wisconsin men’s basketball rebounded with Read…It will be a quick turnaround for the Badgers, and here’s what you need to know about Wisconsin and North Dakota before Tuesday night’s game:Wisconsin (1-1)Projected Starters: G Bronson Koenig (6-foot-4, 20.0 ppg), G Zak Showalter (6-2, 8.0 ppg), F Nigel Hayes (6-8, 15.5 ppg), F Vitto Brown (6-8, 13.5 ppg) and F Ethan Happ (6-9, 6.0 ppg).Key Reserves: F Charlie Thomas (6-8, freshman), G/F Khalil Iverson (6-5, freshman) and G Jordan Hill (6-3, redshirt sophomore).The season-opener loss forced the Badgers out of the AP Top 25 and put the team in a position they never imagined they would be in this early on in the regular season. Despite the disappointment, however, there are definitely encouraging signs regarding the team’s position.Bronson Koenig continues to stay aggressive on offense, and is shooting 51.7 percent from the field and 43 percent from behind the arc on his way to scoring 40 total points through the first two games of the season. Fellow star Nigel Hayes has remained active as well, scoring 31 points through two games and also managing to record a team-high eight assists thus far.While the Badgers do look somewhat formidable on offense behind their two all-Big Ten performers, defense has been an all-around struggle for the team.This is especially so in the paint, as the lack of a true interior defender for UW has allowed opponents easier access to the basket than preferred. Ethan Happ is a potential solution to this issue, but the redshirt freshman has been unable to stay out of foul trouble through the first two outings, playing just 18.5 minutes per game.As a result, true freshmen Khalil Iverson and Charlie Thomas have been forced into larger roles early on, and while their limitations are evident on offense, they have provided great energy on the defensive side of the ball and the boards. Each has recorded 10 rebounds in two games and Iverson currently leads the team with four blocks on the season.North Dakota (1-0)North Dakota finished last season with an overall record of 8-22 and 4-14 in the Big Sky, which was tied for worst in the conference.They’ll look to turn it around this season, and they started with a dominating 99-69 win over Minnesota Morris Friday. In that meeting, they were led by freshman Cortez Seales, who scored a game-high 27 points while shooting an efficient 11-of-15 from the field in his debut.Seales’ running mate in the backcourt is Corey Baldwin, also a true freshman. Baldwin himself was impressive in his collegiate debut, scoring 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting and grabbing six rebounds in 35 minutes. In total, the team consists of seven freshmen — four who played more than 15 minutes in the opener — and will be bringing an inexperienced group of guys onto the Kohl Center floor.If their season-opener game is any indication of their playing style, North Dakota will look to do a majority of their damage on the inside, as they shot just 23 percent from behind the arc and 55 percent from anything inside.last_img read more
