SITEThe Project is located in Convento (Chone) a rural area in the Ecuadorian coast, in an overwhelming natural environment where the presence of large forest of bamboo, a small creek running in front of the field and two rainforest mountains that surround the plot, became the perfect scenario to be potentiated through the project and generate the required relation between the owners and the landscape.Save this picture!SectionRecommended ProductsFastenersFastmount®Panel Fastener – Very Low ProfileWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensCONDITIONINGSAs many architectural projects, the budget was an important constraint. The project could not cost more than $15,000, it was fundamental the use of local resources: bamboo forest and treatment of the material in situ. The local labor ignored about the construction process with bamboo so the family members were trained in order to collaborate and also applied their empirical knowledge in construction. Another limitation was the distance and time (six hours) between the project and the architect, which demanded practicality and clear language in the construction process.Save this picture!Courtesy of Enrique Mora AlvaradoCONSTRUCTIONThe house used about 900 bamboo tree trunks and 8 “laurel” trees for secondary structure and coating walls, taken from the farm where the project is located. In the process of extracting the material, participated the family and some local workers, which experienced different cutting techniques and also they cured the bamboo. The construction process and structural system is simple in order than can be applied in the future for the people of the town.Save this picture!Floor PlanPROGRAMThe Convento house incorporates traditional elements taken from the constructions of the Ecuadorian coast, to establish a dialogue between vernacular and contemporary architecture. The property is separated from the ground to allow air circulation and in case of flooding not be affected. It is a simple program that consists of 3 bedrooms, social and service area (room + kitchen + room + bathroom) both areas connected through a social space that completely opens to the environment, allowing vegetation to enter and cross the house. In this space are incorporated hammocks, a hanging garden reminiscent of “hera” field and a garden at ground level, to highlight the main entrance.On the back of the house is located the outdoor kitchen, in addition to isolate the smoke produced by cooking activity, maintaining the manabitan housing tradition. In Grandma’s room appears a small terrace allowing visual connection with a bamboo area, adjacent to housing. Finally, a system of windows and folding doors is used which allow various configurations depending on the opening level of privacy, use, time and level of inner – outside relationship that users required, creating a changing and dynamic space.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricProject gallerySee allShow lessUS Architecture Schools Express Interest in Conferring Licensure to GraduatesArchitecture NewsIwan Baan: No FilterArchitecture News Share Year:  ArchDaily Convento House / Enrique Mora Alvarado “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEnrique Mora AlvaradoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChoneHousesEcuadorPublished on December 22, 2014Cite: “Convento House / Enrique Mora Alvarado” 22 Dec 2014.

first_imgOvidiu Dugulan/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER, IVAN PEREIRA and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 65.2 million people and killed over 1.5 million worldwide, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:Dec 04, 7:31 amCOVID-19 vaccinations will be free of charge in FranceFrench Prime Minister Jean Castex said COVID-19 vaccinations will not be made compulsory but “will be free for all” in the country’s social security system.“Getting a vaccine is also about protecting others. It is a choice of trust, we must be as numerous as possible to get a vaccine,” Castex said at a press conference Thursday evening, while unveiling the country’s vaccination strategy.France will launch a COVID-19 vaccination campaign within weeks, pending regulatory approval by the European Medicines Agency. The program will run throughout 2021, staggered over three categories of people.The first phase is slated to begin in January, with vaccines administered to nursing home residents and staff, representing one million people. A second phase starting in February will see 14 million people inoculated, based on age and medical criteria. The third and final phase, beginning in March, will target the remainder of the population who wish to be vaccinated.Through deals clinched by the European Union, France has secured some 200 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from several pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology firms that developed them and have applied for temporary authorization. Castex said that’s enough doses to inoculate 100 million people — more than France’s entire population.As of Friday afternoon, France’s health ministry had confirmed a total of 2,257,331 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, including 54,140 deaths.Dec 04, 5:18 amItaly reports nearly 1,000 new deaths in all-time highAn additional 993 deaths from COVID-19 were registered in Italy on Thursday, marking a new all-time high, according to data from the country’s civil protection agency.Italy’s previous single-day record of 969 new fatalities from the disease was set in late March, when the country was the epicenter of the pandemic in Europe.The Italian civil protection agency also reported 23,225 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 31,772 patients currently hospitalized with the disease, including 3,597 in intensive care.Since the start of the pandemic, Italy has confirmed more than 1,664,829 million cases, including at least 58,038 deaths, according to the civil protection agency.The country has the eighth highest case load in the world, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Dec 04, 4:17 amUS has worst day yet with record number of new cases and deathsThere were 217,664 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 2,879 additional deaths from the disease registered in the United States on Thursday, both numbers which shattered the country’s previous daily records, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.It’s the most new cases and deaths the U.S. has recorded in a single day since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s also the 31st straight day that the country has reported over 100,000 newly diagnosed infections, and the third time since the pandemic began that the daily figure has topped 200,000, according to Johns Hopkins data.COVID-19 data may be skewed in the coming days and weeks due to possible lags in reporting over Thanksgiving followed by a potentially very large backlog from the holiday.A total of 14,143,801 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 276,366 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins data. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.Much of the country was under lockdown by the end of March as the first wave of pandemic hit. By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up over the summer.The numbers lingered around 40,000 to 50,000 from mid-August through early October before surging again to record levels, crossing 100,000 for the first time on Nov. 4 and reaching 200,000 for the first time on Nov. 27.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_img Beau Lund January 13, 2021 /Sports News – National Olympic gold medalist swimmer Klete Keller charged for alleged role in Capitol riot Written bycenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGREG WOOD/AFP via Getty ImagesBy ALEXANDRA SVOKOS, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — Olympic gold medalist Klete Keller was charged for his alleged involvement in the attack on the Capitol last week.The swimmer was charged with obstructing law enforcement engaged in official duties, unlawfully entering Capitol grounds and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.It was first speculated that Keller was involved in the riot when people began identifying a man who looked like him in a video taken by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas. The video shows a tall man seemingly wearing a U.S. Olympic Team jacket, and former teammates and coaches identified him as Keller, SwimSwam and The New York Times reported.In the video, which was cited in the complaint against Keller, Capitol Police tussle with rioters in the Rotunda, and Keller was pushed back with the crowd by police shields.The complaint, referencing the Townhall video, notes that “Colorado state records and publicly available information list [Keller’s] height at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, and [the person in the video] appears to be one of the tallest individuals in the video depicting individuals in the Rotunda.”Keller had been employed by Colorado real estate firm Hoff & Leigh, but, the firm said in a statement, he resigned this Tuesday.“Effective immediately, Klete Keller is no longer with Hoff & Leigh. Keller, an independent contractor, resigned from the company today,” the company said. “Hoff & Leigh supports the right of free speech and lawful protest but we cannot condone actions that violate the rule of law. We pride ourselves on our deeply held core values of family, loyalty, community and stewardship. We continue to stand by these values.”In response to the reports of Keller’s participation in the siege, USA Swimming said in a statement, “We respect private individuals’ and groups’ rights to peacefully protest but in no way condone the actions taken by those at the Capitol last week.”Before the charge was made against Keller, U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee CEO Sarah Hirshland sent a letter to Team USA athletes condemning the “rioters” at the Capitol.“At home, and around the world, Team USA athletes are held to a very high standard as they represent our country on the field of play and off,” Hirshland wrote. “What happened in Washington, D.C., was a case where that standard was clearly not met. The people involved attacked the very fabric of the democracy we all proudly represent and, in turn, also let our community down. I urge everyone associated with Team USA to continue to celebrate our diversity of background and beliefs, stand together against hatred and divisiveness, and use our influence to create positive change in our community.”Keller, 38, won medals at the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics. He was on the U.S. relay team along with Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Peter Vanderkaay.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgAs we bound through the holiday season towards another New Year, music fans are getting ready for their favorite bands to put on what is always the biggest party night of the 365-day cycle. Papadosio’s incredible 2017 will culminate with a two-night run of performances at Nashville, TN’s Exit/In on Saturday, December 30th (w/ support from Doyle) and Marathon Music Works on New Year’s Eve proper with Zoogma and Push/Pull (Check out full NYE run info here). Dosio’s Anthony Thogmartin will host a free pre-party under his Earthcry moniker at The Back Corner to get the celebration started on Friday, December 29th, along with Liferoot.Papadosio To Ring In 2018 Proper With Zoogma, Push/Pull, & MoreThe Asheville, NC-based group had their biggest year yet with headlining performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre for their own Re:Creation event (check out a full review here), Rave From The Grave in which they paid tribute to electronic music pioneers of the 90’s, a Fall tour with Phutureprimitive, and most recently their annual Earth Night event (take a looks at photos from the event).Add in massive festival sets at both Resonance Reconstructed and Resonance Music & Arts Festival in the spring and fall, respectively, Wanee Music Festival, SONIC BLOOM, both weekends of Electric Forest, The Peach Music Festival, Oregon Eclipse, and a list that goes on and on, and it becomes increasingly clear to anybody following Papadosio that the band is on a mission.Electric Forest 2017 Recap:[via Papadosio]With 2017 almost behind them, and looking ahead to their upcoming New Year’s Eve run, both Thogmartin and Billy Brouse commented on the run, how fortunate the band is to be performing in front of such a hardcore base of fans, and the prospect of starting a new chapter with the recording of fresh music in 2018 with a pending release.After releasing the all-instrumental Pattern Integrities EP in 2016, Thogmartin is looking forward to dropping new music in the coming year, “2018 will be a big year for us. We have a bunch of new music we are going to be recording. We have so much new music that we are slimming down the songs to be able to fit them into a release. Coming off of an instrumental EP, we couldn’t be more excited to open this new chapter.”“New Love /The Big Smile /New Love” | Red Rocks Amphitheater 2017:[via Papadosio]Brouse discusses the unbelievable fans the group has made over the years, and how special a night like New Year’s Eve is to the band,  “To be able to play our music for our most ardent supporters is always amazing, I can’t tell you how much we appreciate the people who make our dreams a reality. To play for them on NYE is always a treat because I feel like people let it all hang out that night. There’s something in the air and it’s alive all weekend, and I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that a large portion of our fanbase it pretty tight knit. Get all these awesome people in one room together and it becomes really special, and the energy that they give to us and to the rest of the crowd is palpable. Also, playing in Nashville is always a great time, so we’re excited about that.”Rave From The Grave recap:[via Papadosio and Zac Fabien]Tickets for Papadosio’s New Year’s Eve performance with Zoogma and Push/Pull at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN are currently on-sale and can be purchased here. Tickets for the 30th at Exit/In are available here.
