The staircase creates aneffect of glass being buried over the square, but at the same time connects themain plaza with the main hall. Thus, the relationship between “street”, “square”,and “interior space” becomes a sequential experience, which contributes to theintegration of the project into the public space.

On a 1400 m2 lot in the heart of the north area of the city of Quito, the commission required a building for medium-density housing. The L-shaped lot has a steep slope, as the ground is depressed an entire floor between the top and the bottom. The slope is evident along the entire front of the lot. There are two important trees on the sidewalk worth keeping. Save this picture!© Sebastian CrespoThe design arises from two mainideas: First, to divide the building into two blocks laid out in an L-shape,following the morphology of the ground in planimetric and topographic terms.This indicates that the block on the upper area of the lot will be laid out anentire floor over the annexed block, thus establishing a hierarchy betweeninterior and exterior spaces, and giving more exclusivity to the densificationof the buildings. Second, to create a stepped square that serves to connect thetwo housing blocks, but at the same time give the project a semi-public spacewhich visually connects the square and the street, complemented by outdoorfurniture, landscaping and the existent vegetation of the street.

This house embodies the spirit of seaside living in response to a magical site on the ocean,  and a steep rocky coastline with an ideal north-east aspect.   Preferring a discreet scale to the street the nuanced design is sensitive to its location and neighbours, with a quiet focus and layered materiality providing mystery and privacy along with one of Sydney’s busiest coastlines. Our design sought an appropriate response with a form that connects directly with the bay, whilst maintaining view lines for the adjoining neighbour.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderExternally, mass, depth, and abstract form contrast sharply to the natural surroundings. Sunlight accentuates the splayed walls, shadows, and deep recesses, contributing to a clear delineation of the form. Shadows are a deliberate result of the design intention casting deeply onto white walls rendering the house a carved solid aesthetic.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderInternally, the various interconnected spaces, with alternating experiences of compression and expansion, create a sensory perception for the owners and their visitors.   Feelings of safety and happiness are central to the design.   The sensorial combinations of simple raw materials contribute to an ethereal and tranquil atmosphere.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Justin AlexanderAt ground level, the view is strategically angled with walls and openings for privacy and discovery leading through a series of communal, private and cosy spaces.   Flowing from the living space, a private courtyard with a built-in pizza oven is designed for outdoor living protected from southerly winds.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderBringing light and ventilation deep into the subterranean music room was a challenge. By excavating below the driveway and garage, metal grills angled in different directions, now capture the sun throughout the day, and animate the beauty of the sandstone rock face and allows the natural flow of water on rainy days.   This creates a warm space that is private and introspective.   Oversized sliding doors allow the clients to open the space up to the rock cavity’s cooling air.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderThe house needed to respect the client’s desires for simplicity and honesty of material without excess, simple forms with an evocative presence for such a popular and prominent location, with the underlying requirement for practicality and minimal upkeep.   Beyond the usual family essentials, special requests were for a gym, music room and cellar.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderSave this picture!© Justin AlexanderThe client was engaged in decision making and was onsite during the build.  Working with a multi-skilled builder, who worked directly across many trades, meant the process was streamlined.   The materials selected are robust and lean and celebrate the structure as the finish. The clients’ understood the impact every design move would make and faithfully stood behind each decision. This helped to keep the construction costs down.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderFor the house to engage fully with its coastal context, the contribution of the structural engineer made long spans achievable.   Collaborating with a local brick maker made possible the custom-manufactured terracotta breeze blocks that met both the functional and aesthetic,  providing a dynamic play of light to the interior,  tempering views and weather, and letting the house breathe which contribute to the indispensable element of the house.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderExternal materials were chosen for their inherent natural hues and qualities requiring minimum long term maintenance. With the passage of time, the natural materials will age gracefully, developing natural patina’s as natural materials do in nature when they are left to weather by the elements. Central to the design approach is the integration of gardens on walls, roofs, and courtyards, which absorb rainwater and create a thermal buffer. Underpinning the project’s sustainability principles are passive cooling and heating,  evacuated solar tubes for hot water and under-floor heating,  solar panels,  rainwater harvesting, overhangs,  double glazing, and mass construction.Save this picture!© Justin AlexanderThe robust nature of the house ensures longevity and adaptability for future generations, employing structure as finish and energy efficiency overall is what we think contributes to real sustainability.

He told DJA FM, a privately-owned radio station, that they took his camera and mobile phone and then handed him (and his equipment) to a police patrol.The police detained him briefly by force and then, after making him promise not to publish his photos, released him and returned the confiscated camera and phone. “If you ever publish the photos in a newspaper or on social networks, we will know it was you and we’ll come looking for you,” the senior officer present warned Wiché.Two weeks before that, on 25 January, Wiché was covering an anti-government demonstration when he was grabbed and punched by police officers and then dragged along the ground for about 100 metres. The spokesman for the national police gave him an apology the next day.“Any form of violence or intimidation designed to prevent journalists from doing their job is completely unacceptable,” RSF said. “The authorities must realize that journalists play an essential role by covering protests and must be allowed to perform their duties without fear of reprisals. We also remind the authorities that it is their job to guarantee the safety of journalists, especially in the run-up to legislative elections.”The police violence has been condemned by the head of the National Resistance Council for Democracy, Moussa Pascal Sougui, who told the authorities that they must allow journalists to work freely and without any form of obstruction.Wiché has decided to file a complaint against the ANS and the police with the support of Chad’s media unions.Chad is ranked 121st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Turkish journalist made honorary citizen of Paris

first_imgNews FranceEurope – Central Asia Events Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is delighted that leading Turkish journalist Can Dündar – a 2015 RSF Press Freedom Prize laureate who is currently the subject of an arrest warrant in Turkey – was made an honorary citizen of Paris at a ceremony today at the Paris city hall. Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo said she was relieved and pleased to be able to award the City of Paris medal in person to Dündar, who until recently was the editor of the Istanbul daily Cümhuriyet. “Everyone knows that your crime was doing your job as a journalist,” Hidalgo said, adding that he embodied “the aspiration of the Turkish people to live in a free country (…) and the commitment of Turkish journalists to media pluralism.” In his reply, Dündar stressed the importance of this support from Paris at a time when Turkey “is undergoing one of the darkest hours in its history,” and paid tribute to the journalists and politicians currently in prison, some of whom have still had no access to a lawyer. “Today I feel stronger and better supported,” he concluded. Both Hidalgo and Dündar voiced support for RSF’s Turkey representative, Erol Önderoglu, whose trial opened today in Istanbul and will resume on 11 January. And they both stressed the importance of Önderoglu’s work for RSF during this grim period for journalism in Turkey. “At a time when Turkish journalists are the target of an unprecedented crackdown, this tribute to Can Dündar is a valuable gesture of support to all of his colleagues,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “It also an encouragement to all those throughout the world who are fighting against the odds to fulfil their duty to report the news.” Dündar is a leading figure in the fight for media freedom in Turkey, a fight that is more necessary and more dangerous than ever. As well as having edited Cümhuriyet, he has written books and made documentaries. He and fellow Cümhuriyet journalist Erdem Gül were sentenced to five years and ten months in prison in May on a charge of divulging state secrets because of their revelations about Turkish arms deliveries to Islamist groups in Syria. Released pending the outcome of his appeal, Dündar narrowly escaped being shot by a gunman as he left a court hearing in May. The murder attempt seems to have been encouraged by a hostile government campaign branding Dündar as “traitor.” Like Gül, Dündar is facing an additional charge of “helping a terrorist organization.” He fled Turkey after the 15 July coup attempt, which triggered an unprecedented purge against critical media outlets. His wife, Dilek, has been unable to join him because the Turkish authorities have confiscated her passport, effectively holding her hostage. Under the state of emergency declared on 20 July, more than 100 media outlets have been dissolved by decree, dozens of journalists have been jailed and hundreds of journalists have been the subject of bureaucratic sanctions imposed without reference to the courts. Turkey is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
