Pankyo is an emerging residential district located at south of Seoul. Young architects-couple and their parents-couple consented to live together in Pankyo for realistic reasons. Young architects-couple intensely needed evening assistance with their kids and parents-couple immensely needed physical and psychological assistance with father’s aggravating Parkinson’s disease.Save this picture!SectionThere were three objectives with this middle-class house. First, propose an alternative way of living to a nuclear family living. Second, suggest an experimental house of healing for silver generation. Third, offer a logical architectural solution in a most recent (context-free & referent-absent) suburban town of Pankyo. Samdaeheon, 3-Generation House, launched in 2011 to meet the three objectives.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinTo overcome generational differences in 3-generation family, space separation strategy was as important as program unification strategy, particularly, between in-laws. Age and physical conditions led the sectional classification of program; parents-couple on the first floor, architects-couple on the second floor, and kids on the attic floor. Family public events were limited to weekend meals and weekday dinners.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinSecond objective of the project was to focus on father’s worsening walking incapability. iSM proposed a transparent living room. The living room sits at a pivot spot of pedestrian alley and interior courtyard. Intent was to bring seasonal changes of outside inside by extensive use of glass, thereby maximizing the view of people and trees. This would allow sick father to enjoy outside sitting inside. Triple glazing curtainwall system was used.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinThird objective of the project was to provide architecturally logical solution in a fairly new town of Pankyo. iSM differentiated public side from private side. On the public side of the building, SS panels articulated dark brick massing. Dark bricks were used in nearby historical citadel of Suwon. On the private side of the house, terraces successively minimized the volume of the building and correspondingly served public space of each floor. In addition, the terrace volume profile was an outcome of maximum solar gain during winter time.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinSince Korean War, a 2-Generation family living in a high-rise condo (huge painted concrete box) was a dominant way of living in Korea. 3-Generation family living is antithetical to this stance. Samdaeheon is a sociological and architectural experiment. Proposing a 3-Generation house and a transparent living room is against the common culture of Korea. The story of Samdaeheon received wide media attention in Korea.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Power of Paint: Three Case Studies on Colour in ArchitectureArticlesMoriyama RAIC International PrizeArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeiSM architectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuyeo-gunHousesSouth KoreaPublished on July 09, 2014Cite: “Samdaeheon / iSM architects” 09 Jul 2014.

The site is located in a zoned residential area which is a little bit away from the bustling main street. The client wished to have a comfortable house where she could hold a private Yoga class. To meet that request, linkage between exterior and interior spaces were identified to realize a living space that expands toward outside in terms of visual and sensory aspects.Save this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaWhen opening the entrance door of the symmetrically designed building, a courtyard surrounding the living room stretches right in front.Save this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaThe living room that also serves as the Yoga classroom has two openings; it can be used as one unified space together with the courtyard when the sliding doors are wide opened. The terrace continued from the living room is used for Yoga lessons. Light reflected by the basin and fresh wind stimulate the five senses, and set the mind and body free.Save this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaThe wall extended from the terrace incorporates a tower structure that can be regarded as the symbol of this house. The frosted glass fitted in the sculptural-shaped form makes the light thrown into the room softer. It also serves as indirect illumination for the courtyard at night.Save this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaThe fence surrounding the courtyard not only blocks eyes from surroundings but unites with the building to make a semi-outdoor room that can be utilized as an inner terrace. The mortar counter and bench fabricated inside extend the exterior living space and serves as an element to enhance theming effect from the living room.Save this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Yoshihiro AsadaOn the second floor, each room is laid out with a dining room at the center. The space is segmented by difference in ceiling height. Natural light coming through the colored top light of the ceiling quietly brings an uplifting feeling. The dining room is provided with a large window surrounded by the walls and long eaves. The symbolic riser from the courtyard has been designed to serve as an eye-catching object in the scene. It also brings about visual continuity, and links the living scene in the lower floor with that in the upper floor.

House in Afife / Guilherme Machado Vaz

The house is built in the north of Portugal, in a rural settlement that was established at the foot of the hill and expanded towards the plain, which is used as arable land and extends to the sea. The land is separated from a chapel by a walkway, and it is located at a lower level. It is long (about 60 x 18m), and there is a gentle slope. The chapel stands on a base of granite walls with its entrance facing west, and it imposes itself in that area. Its presence had an influence on the project, particularly as regards the design of the volume, its implementation in the space, and the definition of the constructive details. The house sought not to disturb the harmony of this religious space. At the same time, it did not want to be submissive to its presence.Save this picture!© José CamposThe volume was established away from the street so as to create an outside area of arrival and to keep the building in the background towards the chapel and its relation with the public thoroughfare. The width of the house (8.6m) was defined by the deviations that the width of the land determined. A square implantation was defined and repeated in the swimming pool and in the space between both. The regular volume, compact and vertical, evokes the essence of a traditional type of construction in the region of Minho.Save this picture!© José CamposSave this picture!Plantas – Subsolo e TérreoSave this picture!© José CamposAnother of the intentions of the project was to respect the natural topography of the land. In order to comply with it, the building was adapted to the existing elevations through half floors, which allowed a direct relationship with the exterior on the South and West side of the house. The useful space was capitalized on by the installation of the ladder in the center so as to minimize the circulation areas and promote the path that culminates in the roof terrace – the fifth elevation – where the discrepancy between the levels is clear through the volumetric organization. Analyzing it a posteriori, this association of spatial elements carries with it some ‘Loosian’ reminiscences.Save this picture!© José Campos There is a strong contrast between the exterior and the interior. The façade functions as a shell that occasionally allows, through openings, the contact between the house and the world. When the shutters are closed, the façade is its own denial, it is an anti-façade. It cancels an interior, suggesting only matter. It would become an abstract sculpture if the two copper gargoyles did not denounce a functional concern. The ornamental exaggeration of those gargoyles contrasts with the dryness of the façade.Save this picture!© José CamposWhen they are opened, the portals reveal an interior with different materialities that takes its inspiration from vernacular architecture. The portals of the South elevation (facing the chapel) invoke the gilded carving and also recall, in an abstract way, the medieval religious paintings created in the triptych. The window frames are made of wood, just like the skirting of the entrance floor, and both are painted with colors used in times gone by. The skirting has a freedom that allows it to wander through the area, assuming a character which is both plastic and functional. The floors of the ground level are made of terrazzo with brass joints, and the remaining levels have wood floors with open joints. The interior doors do not interrupt the plane of the wall – they choose one side and lean back. The house is old rather than modern. The swimming pool is what it is.

Contrasting climate change in the two polar regions

first_imgThe two polar regions have experienced remarkably different climatic changes in recent decades. The Arctic has seen a marked reduction in sea-ice extent throughout the year, with a peak during the autumn. A new record minimum extent occurred in 2007, which was 40% below the long-term climatological mean. In contrast, the extent of Antarctic sea ice has increased, with the greatest growth being in the autumn. There has been a large-scale warming across much of the Arctic, with a resultant loss of permafrost and a reduction in snow cover. The bulk of the Antarctic has experienced little change in surface temperature over the last 50 years, although a slight cooling has been evident around the coast of East Antarctica since about 1980, and recent research has pointed to a warming across West Antarctica. The exception is the Antarctic Peninsula, where there has been a winter (summer) season warming on the western (eastern) side. Many of the different changes observed between the two polar regions can be attributed to topographic factors and land/sea distribution. The location of the Arctic Ocean at high latitude, with the consequently high level of solar radiation received in summer, allows the ice-albedo feedback mechanism to operate effectively. The Antarctic ozone hole has had a profound effect on the circulations of the high latitude ocean and atmosphere, isolating the continent and increasing the westerly winds over the Southern Ocean, especially during the summer and winter.last_img read more

The periodic topography of ice stream beds: insights from the Fourier spectra of mega-scale glacial lineations

first_imgIce stream bed topography contains key evidence for the ways ice streams interact with, and are potentially controlled by, their beds. Here we present the first application of two–dimensional Fourier analysis to 22 marine and terrestrial topographies from 5 regions in Antarctica and Canada, with and without mega-scale glacial lineations (MSGLs). We find that the topography of MSGL-rich ice stream sedimentary beds is characterized by multiple, periodic wavelengths between 300 and 1200 m and amplitudes from decimeters to a few meters. This periodic topography is consistent with the idea that instability is a key element to the formation of MSGL bedforms. Dominant wavelengths vary among locations and, on one paleo ice stream bed, increase along the direction of ice flow by 1.7±0.52% km-1. We suggest that these changes are likely to reflect pattern evolution via downstream wavelength coarsening, even under potentially steady ice stream geometry and flow conditions. The amplitude of MSGLs is smaller than that of other fluvial and glacial topographies, but within the same order of magnitude. However, MSGLs are a striking component of ice stream beds because the topographic amplitude of features not aligned with ice flow is reduced by an order of magnitude relative to those oriented with the flow direction. This study represents the first attempt to automatically derive the spectral signatures of MSGLs. It highlights the plausibility of identifying these landform assemblages using automated techniques and provides a benchmark for numerical models of ice stream flow and subglacial landscape evolution.last_img read more

MLB All-Star Josh Hader apologizes for history of racist tweets

first_img Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPatrick Smith/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — MLB pitcher Josh Hader apologized following Tuesday night’s All-Star Game after a number of offensive old tweets from his account surfaced earlier in the evening.Hader, who pitches for the Milwaukee Brewers, tweeted various racist, misogynist and homophobic tweets in 2011 and 2012. The tweets resurfaced on Tuesday and were shared widely online. The 24-year-old was 17 and 18 years old at the time of many of the tweets. All of the tweets circulating online appear to have come before he was drafted to the majors in June 2012.“As a child I was immature and obviously I said some stuff that was inexcusable,” Hader told reporters in the locker room after the game. “That doesn’t reflect on who I am as a person today.“There’s no excuse for what was said and, ya know, I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve said,” he added.At least one tweet included the N-word, while another said, “I hate gay people.” Hader’s account is now verified, though it wasn’t at the time.The pitcher told reporters after the game he was not aware of the old tweets resurfacing before taking the field, and only found out when he returned to the locker room and his “phone was blowing up” with messages from people.Hader’s name was in the top-2 trending topics on Twitter throughout Tuesday night, often trailing only the hashtag for the game itself.He said he didn’t know the context of the tweets, didn’t remember specifics and hadn’t even seen them yet when speaking to reporters.“I’m sure there were some lyrics, rap lyrics, being tweeted,” Hader told reporters. “I really don’t know what all is out there.”“I was just trying to understand the situation. … That’s one of the reasons I didn’t want social media,” Milwaukee Brewers outfielder and teammate Lorenzo Cain said. “We always get in trouble for things you said when you were younger. We’ll move on from it.”Hader struggled in the All-Star Game, his first as a player, giving up three runs and four hits in 0.1 inning. He has a 1.50 ERA and seven saves during the regular season.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
