The combination of wood, steel, glass and greens come together in this contemporary expression of a residence in the tropical climate of Kolkata. This model home is a standalone version of typical apartments that are to come up as part of a 40-storeyed tower. This is capped by a rooftop lounge and terrace created to enjoy panoramic views across the site.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe Aurus Home is designed to be, currently, a mockup for a 4-bedroom apartment with a double height living-dining space and a large balcony. The bedrooms are planned to be meeting rooms and audio visual facilities until they are converted into a home for its end user. Meanwhile, the rooftop terrace overlooks the construction of the tower.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeGreeted at the entrance by a Guard house that complements the building’s treatment, one enters the site through concrete steps floating on a landscaped bed. The pathway gradually reveals the building and its materials opening out onto a large water body dotted with greens.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeSave this picture!Courtesy of Abin Design StudioSave this picture!© Ravi KanadeWooden louvers wrap the entire structure save for the openings emphasizing glimpses across the waterscape into the home. The columns, floor and ceiling are treated in a dark grey colour to bring out the hand-crafted wooden element to the fullest, eliciting a sense of luxury from the very first glance.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe reflection in the water of the simple colonnade against the modern wooden louvered facade brings out the contemporary Asian expression that the building aims to create. The double height living, dining and balcony are clearly expressed as the focal features of the apartment even before one enters inside.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe entrance foyer is presently a glass box consisting a model display area and reception. It is planned to be converted into a tranquil pavilion amidst the greens. The main door detail carefully mimics the exterior treatment. The warmth of the door leads one into the foyer of the home which has been designed as a bar unit. The art corner behind the bar is an essential part in making the foyer unforgettable. The name “Aurus” is not lost as the gold accents in the bespoke furniture complement the otherwise monochromatic material palette.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeSave this picture!Courtesy of Abin Design StudioSave this picture!© Ravi KanadeA feature wall of wood and gold was developed to conceal a bedroom door (currently used as an AV room) with a crafted solid wooden handle. A large, circular, strategically chosen picture breaks the monotony of the louvers. The feature wall wraps around from the foyer and leads one further into the home towards the living and dining area. This large volume is the heart of the home and enjoys a fantastic view of the water body across the large balcony. Its double height is emphasized by a large wire-frame chandelier over the dining and a brass ‘thali’ mural on the living room wall.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe bedroom is designed to effortlessly integrate modern elements with fuss-free practical furniture. Simple sheer curtains adorn the windows that boast good views. The richness of the marble flooring  complemented by the simple stylish furniture, curated artwork and dreamy ambience subtly hint a causal opulence.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe landscaping combines trees of various heights, spreads, colours and foliage that provide a natural feel to the outdoor areas while broken stone chips on the floor and floating concrete steps across the water body bring out a man-made intervention. The harmonious amalgamation of the two make for a pleasant alfresco environment, perfect for every season. A concrete planter box rising from the water body with a life-imitating sculpture along with its reflection in the water give the landscaping an ethereal feel.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeAs one moves up towards the rooftop lounge and deck, a balcony at the mezzanine level comes as a welcome area for pause offering a different sense of appreciation of the landscaping. The modern metal staircase and perforated railing create crisp and interesting shadows. One is met at the top of the stairs with a panoramic view of the site and the city beyond through the seamless glass enclosure. The rooftop spaces are designed with neo-classical charm coupled with modern accents. Simple furniture is detailed carefully with rich material choices. Enclosed in this lavish glass box, complete with contextual arches and mouldings, one can admire the upcoming tower across greens within the comfort of air-conditioned spaces. Winter would encourage one to step out and take in the cool breeze while lounging on the deck.Save this picture!© Ravi KanadeThe mix of materials, the presence of exquisitely detailed elements alongside simple furniture, chic accents, a basic colour palette and the arrangement of art and sculpture, all together contain a verSave this picture!© Ravi KanadeProject gallerySee allShow lessPump House / Design and Research Institute of Shanghai Construction No.7Selected ProjectsGwaneum-Ri House / Architecture Studio YEINSelected Projects Share Architects: Abin Design Studio Area Area of this architecture project India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/801454/aurus-sales-pavilion-abin-design-studio Clipboard Year:  “COPY” Projects “COPY” Pavilionlast_img read more

Student-directed one-act plays exploring alternate universes to debut at Philbin Studio Theater

first_imgThe Philbin Studio Theater at DeBartolo Performing Arts Center will run two new student-directed one-act plays, “Coats” by junior Henry Stone and “The Tea on ND” by senior Samuel Jackson II. Both plays debuted Thursday and will show until March.Each of the two plays are set in a flipped world. “Coats” is an absurdist comedy that takes place in a world where empathy is a disease, and “The Tea on ND” explores a parallel universe in which being gay is the norm and straight people are the marginalized minority. Senior Amenabar Farias, director of “The Tea on ND” and senior Patrick Starner, director of “Coats,” said these worlds were fleshed out in a workshopping class they took last semester.“The big thing that we focused on was just trying to figure out what this physical world actually looks like, how the characters interact,” Starner said. “We just messed around with that, and it taught me the world of the play — it’s a very unique piece of theater in this absolutely wonderful world that Henry has crafted.”As director, Starner said he did not come in with a strict plan. Instead, he wanted to collaborate with the actors to create something that felt real. That process, he said, taught him a lot about theater.“I had thoughts and rough guidelines,” Starner said. “But I didn’t want to dictate what all the performers were going to do. We were really able to collaboratively, as a unit, create the show and flush out all these different moments — some of them I didn’t even know were there, and now it’s a great moment in the show.”“The Tea on ND” also explores an alternate universe, and Farias said she hopes people can see the parallels between the play and Notre Dame itself.“It is aimed for the Notre Dame audience,” she said. “We want to make sure that they know that we’re talking about the community they live in. It brings light to all of these issues and raises awareness of these injustices.”Starner, Farias and Jackson have all been involved in plays at Notre Dame before, and Farias said this will be the third play she has directed at the University. She said she was especially excited to work with “The Tea on ND” because it deals with issues and injustices present in the current world.“I’m interested in telling stories that usually go untold,” Farias said. “So when this show was presented to me, I was very interested. It’s not just a show for the sake of being entertaining, because it is entertaining, but it also has a very deep message.”Jackson said he wrote the play in a different universe to shake up the typical view of the University.“It’s an exploration of the University of Notre Dame in a universe where traditions are upended, expectations are unrooted and perspectives drastically change in a hope to shake up the familiar scene and allow audiences to find a new meaning,” he said.While Jackson found inspiration in his own experience at Notre Dame, he said he also wanted it to be accessible for everyone. A large part of that was writing humor into the play alongside the issues it tackles, he said.“It’s fun. It’s a really fun show,” he said. “I have my mission and everything — that whole empathy-building thing, being able to shake up the familiar scene and, you know, analyze the social fabric of this place — that’s great. At the same time, come out and laugh. For two and a half hours, just be with your friends, be with the people on stage and live in the moment. Be challenged, be questioned, allow yourself to see, allow yourself to be seen through the emotions being explored on stage. And laugh.”Tags: Amenabar Farias, coats, Henry Stone, humor, Patrick Starner, Samuel Jackson II, The Philbin Studio Theater, The Tea on NDlast_img read more

Homefield advantage unfair?

first_imgLet’s talk about sportsmanship.If you’re a fan, there are not a lot of things you can’t do. Throwing bottles at athletes, death threats and anything involving bodily fluids is generally taboo. Otherwise you are free to express yourself through whatever colorful language you prefer, whether it is screamed as the opposing quarterback comes through the tunnel, or tastefully scribed upon a big piece of tag board – as tastefully as George Carlin’s Seven Words can be scribed upon a piece of tag board, anyways.Generally, if you’re not dumping beer on Shane Victorino or throwing hot dogs at Chuck Knoblauch, you’re operating within the realm of reason. Unless you’re in Canada, I guess.Arthur Schafer, a columnist at The Globe and Mail, a Toronto-based newspaper, has a different view of fan sportsmanship. He doesn’t draw the line at foul language, or making suggestions about what a given player likes to use his mouth for in his spare time. For Schafer, his “you shall not pass” condition is when fans cheer too loudly at football games when the visiting team has the ball on offense.Yeah, I know. He’s got to be joking, right?I’m not. The column is titled, “It’s okay for football fans to cheer. But not so loudly.”I’ll give you a minute to let that digest, then another for you to finish laughing or screaming in disbelief. Whichever you prefer.It’s okay, Mr. Schafer. You’re always entitled to your opinion – even if it’s wrong.Any good fan knows there are three times to get very loud during a football game: after a big play, after a touchdown and every damn second the opposing team even thinks about running a play on offense.Apparently, “That’s cheating, isn’t it”? Schafer, a philosophy professor at the University of Manitoba doesn’t find it fair that a home team should enjoy the advantage of thousands of drunken Canadians (redundant?) drowning out a snap count.I think I know two things about Canadians. One, they’re very good at hockey. Two, they’re way too nice for their own good – unless hockey is involved; then they’ll fight you to the death.These two over-generalized notions of Canadians are backed by my having grown up in Minnesota – or “South Canada” as it is sometimes mistakenly called. Minnesotans are generally the same – great at hockey, too nice.However, you’d be hard pressed to find a single Minnesotan in the ‘Dome’ that leaves a Vikings-Packers game with a throat that doesn’t sound like it was ravaged by 40 years of smoking and tuberculosis. And clearly every Canadian not named Arthur Schafer knows how to be the “13th man on the field.”Canadian football is 12-on-12, so luckily for him, that’s not another erroneous statement.For all I know, the whole article was a joke. Maybe the plea for Canadian football’s brass to curtail the unfair cheering of a home stadium’s fans is completely tongue-in-cheek. He is a philosophy professor after all; have you ever heard a philosopher tell a joke? Can you say, “over my head”?At this point, I could begin to wax about the great benefits associated with loud, raucous fans. I could also make note of how said loud, raucous fans are typically absent from certain sections of Camp Randall until the second quarter or so. But that’s petty of me, and I’m not going to tell you how to spend your game day. But if you look up “loud raucous fans” in a dictionary, you’re going to be redirected to “home-field advantage.”What we can do is take a look at what home-field advantage means.Joe Sheehan of Sports Illustrated took an interesting look at the matter in the MLB playoffs. According to Sheehan’s research, having home-field throughout the entirety of October only gives you an 8-percent boost in odds.The AL Central might dispute the claim that home-field doesn’t matter. The Minnesota Twins went 1-1 in Game 163s in the past two years. Against the White Sox in ’08, they fell victim to a pitching duel ruined by a black-and-white-clad Jim Thome at U.S. Cellular field. Against the Tigers last season, they won the crazy kind of game that you usually only win at home.The Colorado Rockies also knew; they won a one-game playoff over San Diego in 2007 – at Coors Field.Going back to the gridiron, the Wisconsin football team is 26-3 at Camp Randall since Bret Bielema became head coach. Of course, a lot of those games came against the likes of “Where is Wofford”? and Cal “extra-point” Poly. But there were wins over ranked Michigan State and Michigan teams as well. A big part of those 26 wins at home? It’s that unsportsmanlike home-field advantage.“We want it to be ridiculous. If you can’t hear, that’s better for us,” UW safety Jay Valai said. “That’s home-field advantage.”Are you sure, Jay? Do the Badgers really want 81,000-plus fans screaming like it’s Judgment Day on every third down?“That’s exactly what we want this weekend… If our fans can get as loud as possible this week, that’s definitely playing into our favor,” linebacker Culmer St. Jean said.Against an Arizona State spread offense that likes to rattle off lots of plays and relies on lots of communication – both from the sideline and at the line of scrimmage – some extra noise could be very disruptive. Enough to burn some timeouts or cause some false starts, even. Against a BCS opponent, the fans will be sure to bring the noise.But that just wouldn’t be fair, right?Adam is a senior majoring in journalism. What is it about home-field advantage?
