Architect, donors named for new campus center

first_imgAfter years of discussion, a Harvard campus center came closer to fruition Thursday, when Harvard President Drew Faust introduced the donor and announced the project’s architects had been selected for an expansive facility to transform Holyoke Center.The center, expected to open in 2018, will be named for its major donors, Richard A. and Susan F. Smith, and designed by London-based Hopkins Architects with Cambridge-based Bruner/Cott as executive architect. The planning process, which will begin this month, is anticipated to include substantial community and student input and last roughly a year and a half, with construction to begin in 2016.“The Smith Campus Center will draw members of the University community together and serve as an important common space for everyone to enjoy and use,” Faust said. “We are very pleased to be moving forward with planning, and we are eager to engage students, faculty, and staff in the important work of creating a flexible and welcoming campus hub.”The project will entail the renovation and remodeling of Holyoke Center as well as the focused renovation of the building’s exterior. Holyoke Center was renamed the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center during a brief ceremony outside the building.The building’s new name, posted over the entrance to its ground-floor arcade, was unveiled during the ceremony, which was attended by Richard and Susan Smith and members of their family, as well as several deans and University leaders. Faust, Provost Alan Garber, and Mike Taylor, senior partner for Hopkins Architects, made brief remarks.The new center is expected to provide a major boost to the University’s multiyear effort to create and improve common spaces across Harvard as a way to ensure its physical spaces foster the campus’s intellectual, cultural, and social experience.The Holyoke Center was renamed the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Campus Center during a brief ceremony outside the building. Photo by Michelle JayThe Common Spaces program began in 2009 with the addition of comfortable seating and a program of scheduled performances and additional food options in Harvard Yard and in the small plaza in front of Dudley House to encourage informal gatherings. It also includes the recent transformation of the Plaza and the opening of Memorial Church’s “porch” in Tercentenary Theatre.The Smith Campus Center will be open to faculty, staff, and students across the University, and is intended to draw the community together and complement facilities already available in Harvard’s undergraduate residential Houses.In recent months, Faust had identified Holyoke as a likely site for a campus center because of its central location.In her announcement, Faust said the project was able to move forward because of a significant contribution — whose amount is not being disclosed — by the Smiths. Richard Smith, the former chairman and chief executive officer of Harcourt General Inc., which at one time included General Cinemas and the Neiman Marcus department store chain, is a member of the Harvard College Class of 1946, though he graduated in 1944 due to World War II.Smith and his wife, Susan, have a history of philanthropy toward Harvard and affiliated institutions, including the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In addition, Richard Smith served on both of Harvard’s governing boards, including three years as an Overseer and nine as a member of the Harvard Corporation, from which he stepped down in 2000. He received an honorary degree from Harvard in 2001.In an interview before the announcement, the Smiths said they were interested in giving a gift to the University that would have a lasting effect on students and faculty. When they heard that University leadership and students alike supported development of a centrally located campus center, they decided to support the project.“Other universities … have great campus centers, and they do a wonderful job in enabling students and the whole community to associate with each other in activities and to make friends and to find a place to spend an hour between classes,” Richard Smith said. “Of all the institutions one can think of, Harvard has been the leading developer of the future leadership of this country, if not the world. To be associated with it has been a great privilege and to support it in a meaningful way … will be a capstone in my relationship with Harvard.”The planning process for the center is just beginning. Faust’s intention is for a comprehensive outreach effort to engage the Harvard community in the pro­cess of planning and programming the center. University planners said the facility is expected to offer large, flexible indoor gathering space for students, faculty, and staff and include food service, lounge, and study areas, as well as space for exhibitions, events, and performances. The first floor of the renovated structure is expected to remain open to the public, offering a mix of retail and food service options.Hopkins Architects, which will develop detailed plans in consultation with the Harvard community, is an international architecture firm that designed, among others, Yale University’s Kroon Hall and Princeton University’s Frick Chemistry Laboratory. In his remarks, Hopkins’ Taylor said that the firm is looking forward to the “long and exciting journey” ahead.The lead architect, Hopkins, will be partnering with Bruner/Cott throughout the project. Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates is the project’s landscape architect.“All of us at Hopkins are absolutely thrilled to be here and selected by Harvard and Mr. and Mrs. Smith to help realize your vision for a vibrant campus center that will be at the heart of Harvard. We are looking forward to the collaborative process in the coming weeks, months, and years,” Taylor said. “We are very thrilled. We are looking forward to the journey, and this is the first step.”Holyoke Center, which opened in the mid-1960s, was designed in the 1950s by then-Graduate School of Design Dean Josep Lluis Sert, who also designed the Science Center, the Peabody Terrace graduate student apartments, and the Divinity School’s Center for the Study of World Religions.last_img read more

Klopp wrestles with Liverpool’s midfield dilemma

first_img– Vulnerable –Liverpool, currently third in the Premier League, have not been as threatening a force as they were last season en route to the Champions League final.The midfield has looked particularly vulnerable in their past two matches, a 1-1 Premier League draw at Arsenal last Saturday and a surprisingly meek 2-0 Champions League group defeat at Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.Neither Keita nor Fabinho played in Serbia, while their other major outfield signing of the summer, Xherdan Shaqiri, was left in England, amid concerns about the reception he would receive from the home supporters because of his Kosovan heritage.Klopp’s three-man midfield on Tuesday failed to distinguish itself, with hamstring injury victim Jordan Henderson clearly missed.James Milner’s error led to the home side’s second goal, with Georginio Wijnaldum shrugged aside too easily before Milan Pavkov scored. Adam Lallana, making a rare start, was anonymous.Fabinho was an unused substitute in Belgrade, having struggled against Arsenal, and is clearly not up to speed with the English game yet.Keita started well in England, then hit injury problems, as he suffered a back spasm during October’s Champions League defeat by Napoli, and a hamstring problem playing for Guinea.Klopp has shuffled around his midfield this season, but appears reluctant to repeat the experiment he tried in September’s Premier League win over Southampton, when Shaqiri was used in an advanced midfield role.The Switzerland international was substituted at half-time that day, because Klopp felt the match was too open.His best hope of regular game time now would appear to be as part of the attacking three, which means dislodging Salah, Firmino or Mane.Fabinho still has work to do to earn his starting spot too. Keita, though, will surely become a regular once he gets up to speed and a meeting with struggling Fulham could be the ideal place to start.Share on: WhatsApp Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | As Jurgen Klopp tries to maintain Liverpool’s challenge for the Premier League title, the need to sort out his midfield is becoming an increasingly pressing issue.A home match against bottom club Fulham on Sunday may just offer the opportunity to start to put that right by giving both Naby Keita and Fabinho crucial game time to build momentum and confidence.Both players were signed at great expense during the summer with a view to strengthening Liverpool’s midfield options.Keita was seen as a replacement for the attacking guile of Philippe Coutinho while Fabinho was viewed as the player to prove a defensive shield following Emre Can’s departure.Neither has yet managed to establish themselves as a powerful presence in England, with Reds boss Klopp relying largely on the players used last season.Klopp has suggested both signings need time to settle in a new country, with Guinea international Keita arriving from German club RB Leipzig, and Brazilian Fabinho joining from French Ligue 1 side Monaco.While it is understandable that neither player would hit the ground running, the need for them to find form has become more urgent, given the lack of creative spark in Liverpool’s midfield.If the front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have failed to hit last season’s heights, the same is true of the midfield, where the injured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been sorely missed.Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has seen the difference for himself.“Last season everyone was used to us scoring four or five goals. That can’t be possible every single game,” Robertson said.“Maybe we are missing a bit of a spark in terms of not winning 4-0 or 5-0 in most games but if the manager thinks that then we need to try to get it back.“We need to come together as a team and try to give what the gaffer wants, try to get the spark and try to win games more comfortably.”last_img read more

first_img6 Aug 2015 England’s girls to play off for title Meanwhile, England’s defence of the Boys’ Home Internationals ended in disappointment after the team was beaten by Scotland 9½ – 5½ in the title clash at Conwy, Wales.The teams couldn’t be separated after the foursomes which finished level at 2½ – 2½, but the singles went Scotland’s way.England captain Derek Hughes said: “Scotland were very good and deserving winners.

IATA: Terrorism and suicide remain problems

first_imgThe airline industry’s leading association has warned that there are no easy solutions to pilot’s mental health or terrorism that brought down two aircraft killing 374 last year. Yesterday the International Air Transport Association (IATA) issued its report card on airline safety and claimed that last year was one of the safest on record but it cautioned that there are still problems in countries such as Africa and parts of the CIS.World’s Safest Airlines.Last year there was one major passenger jet aircraft accident for every 3.1 million flights which was a 30% improvement compared to the previous five-year rate (2010-2014) of 0.46 hull loss accidents per million jet flights.The 2015 jet hull loss rate for members of IATA was 0.22 (one accident for every 4.5 million flights), which outperformed the global rate by 31% and which was in line with the five-year rate (2010-2014) of 0.21 per million flights but above the 0.12 hull loss rate achieved in 2014.IATA says that the loss of Germanwings 9525 (pilot suicide) and Metrojet 9268 (suspected terrorism) that resulted in the deaths of 374 passengers and crew  are tragedies that are not, however, included in the accident statistics as they are classified as deliberate acts of unlawful interference.Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO said that 2015 in terms of the number of fatal accidents, it “was an extraordinarily safe year.” “The long-term trend data show us that flying is getting even safer. Yet we were all shocked and horrified by two deliberate acts–the destruction of Germanwings 9525 and Metrojet 9268.”Mr Tyler warned that “while there are no easy solutions to the mental health (of pilots) and security issues that were exposed in these tragedies, aviation continues to work to minimize the risk that such events will happen again.” Safety by the numbers:•    More than 3.5 billion people flew safely on 37.6 million flights (31.4 million by jet, 6.2 million by turboprop)•    136 fatalities compared to 641 fatalities in 2014 and the five-year average of 504. Including those who lost their lives in Germanwings 9525 and Metrojet 9268, the 2015 figure was 510.•    68 accidents (all aircraft types), down from 77 in 2014 and the five-year average of 90 per year•    Four fatal accidents (all aircraft types) versus 12 in 2014 and the five-year average of 17.6•    6% of all accidents were fatal, below the five-year average of 19.6%•    10 hull loss accidents involving jets compared to 8 in 2014 and the five-year average of 13 per year•    Zero jet hull loss accidents involving passenger fatalities, down from three in 2014, and the five-year average of 6.4 per year.While most regions improved their safety Africa (3.49) and the Commonwealth of Independent States remain problem areas.Mr Tyler said that airlines on the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registry experienced only 4 jet hull loss accidents (none fatal) and one fatal turboprop hull loss accident. The total accident rate (all aircraft types) for IOSA-registered carriers was nearly three times as good as the rate for non-IOSA carriers (1.14. vs. 3.23) last year; and over the five years 2010-2014, the rate is more than three times better (1.48 vs. 4.99). As of 12 February, 408 airlines were on the IOSA registry. For IATA’s 262 member airlines, IOSA registration is a requirement. That some 146 non-member airlines are also on the registry is evidence that IOSA is the global benchmark for airline operational safety management.”Now in its 13th year, IOSA continues to be recognized as the gold standard for airline operational audits. In 2016 we will continue to tweak IOSA to ensure we are maintaining the highest standards of quality assurance in the audit process,” said Tyler.IOSA is a major part of the AirlineRatings.com safety rating system which is endorsed by aviation’s governing body the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). .last_img read more
