LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. Housing development in Denver is booming, especially in the newly revitalized River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver. Unlike the majority of apartment buildings in the area, Dynia Architects’ Freight Residences rejects the typical models of development. The building has a sense of intimacy and privacy, reduces the homogony of multifamily development, and targets the underserved urban family market. Save this picture!© JC BuckFreight Residences is the newest addition to the mixed-use TAXI development, situated between the train tracks and the Platte River in RiNo.  The building is Dynia’s fourth completed project on the site, with two more to be scheduled for completion by 2018.  This 48-unit, four-story urban housing development was designed for professionals and young families with urban sensibilities.  The one-, three-, and four-bedroom units are configured as a stacked, repeating module of 18-foot sections.  All but the one-bedroom units offer two floors of living space with through-unit ventilation and light infiltration.  Each unit has an operable glass garage door that opens the living spaces to the gardens on the first floor, generous private balconies on the fourth floor, and to incredible mountain views to the west from the third floor one-bedroom units.  Save this picture!© JC BuckSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© JC BuckThis urban residential block is unconventional, having a single corridor located on the third floor providing access to the one-bedroom and three-bedroom top floor units.  Generous windows at each end of the hallway offer a street-like experience.  The four-bedroom units are accessed through private entrances on the first floor of the building, either from the car-port parking area in the back or through the garden terraces on the front of the building.  This configuration of the first and second floors offers privacy and creates a row house sensibility rather than the feel of a double loaded apartment block. These two-story units allow light and air to flow from east to west on each floor. Save this picture!© JC BuckThe utilization of day lighting and natural ventilation has positive health benefits while reducing energy costs. The building’s HVAC systems use efficient domestic hot water heaters and energy efficient fan coils. On site storm water detention basins are built into the landscaped terraces off of the east side of the building providing natural irrigation and filtering excess water.  Save this picture!© JC BuckFreight Residences taps into the amenities serving the entire TAXI campus.  The site features a unique shipping container pool, fitness center, multiple community gathering areas, green spaces, a restaurant, coffee shop, and an early childhood education facility.  The creative recreation room on the ground floor of Freight Residences is an additional amenity space for the building and the surrounding TAXI community. Separated from the elevator vestibule by a hanging plastic strip curtain door, the creative recreation room was designed as a learning and play space.  The vibrant orange room features a large garage door, connecting the space to the outdoors.Save this picture!Section DiagramFreight Residences is clearly a unique and innovative building.  It’s location, design features, and sense of community appeal to its tenants.

Light and height are central to the Dynia planning strategy; operable walls of windows or garage doors are incorporated into most projects.  At the recently completed Freight Residences, located on the TAXI campus in RiNo, the garage doors on all levels connect interior spaces with the outdoors in a city with a passion for outdoor activity.  Generous private balcony spaces provide an additional outdoor room with iconic mountain or urban views.  These elements also allow for through-unit ventilation and ample light infiltration.

Designed as an Open Building, Superloft Blok Y forms part of the ongoing Superlofts project, initiated by Marc Koehler Architects (MKA), focused on flexibility, participation, and adaptability. It offered a collective of 30 homeowners a blank canvas to customize or design and build their apartments according to their needs, and actively engaged them from the outset to co-create the building and its shared spaces. A unique complex – where no two apartments are alike – results from the building’s radical flexibility, collective character and high level of sustainability.Save this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Stijn PoelstraThe five-story building comprises a base framework (support) that is independently fitted out (infill) by the inhabitants. Blok Y combines 30 Superlofts into 5 types – XS lofts (70m2) to family lofts (145m2) – resulting in a rich diversity of dwellings and mixed community. Homeowners could fit out a completely raw space (by themselves or together with an architect) or customize an existing floor plan, and also their exterior. The open concrete framework is organized into varying loft formats with two or three stories, single or double facade, with a roof terrace, balcony or garden. Their unique layouts are uncommon in conventional housing, many designed to flexibly accommodate future change e.g. by incorporating a lift or flexible partitions to reconfigure the interior once the kids leave home. Generous voids create a beautiful sense of space and light.  Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraConstructed with a considered use of materials and meticulous detailing, the facade is a simple but strong expression of the concept. The interplay of the fixed concrete grid and variation in details from the customized facades results in a robust, dynamic building that reflects the diversity of its community. The slim concrete grid is filled in with a framework of double-height windows that bring light deep into the apartments. A lively facade composition results from the varying loft exteriors, with their different entrances, balconies and window configurations. By night, modules of glowing interiors animate the framework, reflecting the changing activity within.Save this picture!Exploded Structure Diagram 2Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgConstructed with a considered use of materials and meticulous detailing, the facade is a simple but strong expression of the concept.

first_imgMillions of people across the country are beginning to head to the polls in the midst of one of the most disgusting and unprecedented campaigns between two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in modern history. Faced with a choice between racist, sexist billionaire Donald Trump and Wall Street loyalist, war hawk Hillary Clinton, many are realizing that capitalist democracy offers working-class and oppressed people with no choice — but to fight back!There is another electoral option, and that’s to cast a vote for candidates who believe in that fightback, the Workers World Party revolutionary socialist election campaign of Monica Moorehead for president and Lamont Lilly for vice president. Moorehead/Lilly will be on the ballot in New Jersey, Wisconsin and Utah, and a write-in vote for the ticket will be counted in over half the other states. See the full list below.The Moorehead/Lilly campaign has never been about getting votes or winning elections. It’s about building the struggle in the streets for Black lives; to stop the raids and deportations; to abolish the police, the Pentagon and Immigration and Customs Enforcement; to stop the attacks on women and LGBTQ people; for housing, free education and health care for all; for reparations to those owed them by the state; and against the rising tide of Islamophobia and racist reaction.A vote for Moorehead/Lilly is a vote against the capitalist system and a commitment to the fightback of the people to change the miserable conditions that have been forced upon us.Perhaps more than anything, this election has laid bare that the entire system is rigged on behalf of the ruling class and their continued ability to oppress and exploit working-class and oppressed people in the U.S. and across the globe.We clearly have but one choice: to continue to build a revolutionary movement to fight for a socialist future that can once and for all stomp the Trumps, Clintons and the system they represent into the ground.Monica Moorehead for president and Lamont Lilly for vice president are on the ballot in New Jersey, Utah and Wisconsin.Write in Monica Moorehead for president and Lamont Lilly for vice president in these states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington (state), Washington (District of Columbia), West Virginia and Wyoming.Anyone — including prisoners, youth under 18, undocumented folks, and people from other parts of the world — can cast their ballot for our candidates online at vote4socialism.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgAug. 3 — Talks between the Republican administration and its majority Republican Senate with the Democratic Party House and Senate leaders have failed so far to reach agreement. This impasse holds up the emergency relief, which  Republicans call CARES-2, beyond the date when vital unemployment supplements expired and the rent and mortgage moratorium ended.People wait to receive help at a food bank distribution in New York City in May.Months ago, the Democratic House passed a relief plan they called the Heroes Act, valued at about $3.4 trillion. The Republican side dragged their feet for two months and now has barely agreed on their own plan, whose meager total value of only $1.1 trillion itself shows its inadequacy.People fear this pandemic, and with good reason. As August begins, COVID-19 cases are spreading faster in most of the U. S. than they did last spring. Whatever state governments decide about opening or closing business, the COVID-19 spread will impede much economic activity. This means the need for emergency relief is greater than in March for what are now tens of millions of unemployed workers, who, along with their families, face eviction, hunger and COVID-19.Human solidarity impels a socialist society. The drive to maximize profits drives capitalist society. The last five months have already shown that socialist societies are far more effective in confronting this pandemic than capitalist societies.Compare noncapitalist China, Cuba and Vietnam, for example, where in early August, COVID-19 is under control, with rampant unregulated capitalism in the United States, Brazil and most of India where its spread is unchecked. While the need to fight for socialism provides a beacon revolutionaries can aim for, the immediate struggle over the relief package is taking place in the U.S. Congress between the two pro-imperialist, pro-capitalist parties that represent the U.S. ruling class. Conflict in CongressThat this conflict takes place in the midst of an election year battle where — if anything near a normal election takes place, something that seems unlikely — the Republicans face the potential loss of the White House and the Senate, along with the House of Representatives. That makes it even more significant and revealing that the Republican proposals provide so little. The message is that the Republicans are willing to allow unemployed workers to sink into despair and chaos rather than aid them. They cater instead to the biggest capitalists and base their election drive on Trump’s racism, misogyny and xenophobia.One thing the Democratic and Republican party proposals agree on is renewing some version of the $1,200 one-time “stimulus” payment doled out last spring. Trump maneuvered to get his name on the checks’ memo line to take credit for payments that were mailed, and he will likely find a way to claim credit for this payment.The biggest battle looms over the Democrats’ proposal to extend the $600 per week supplement to unemployment insurance for the rest of the year. This payment has kept tens of millions of unemployed workers and their families from economic catastrophe. But those payments expired last week. The Republicans now propose paying only a $200 a week supplement. They say no one should get more than 70% of their salary. This payment is inadequate for keeping the economy afloat, not to mention the workers. It reinforces the inequality of U.S. capitalist society — which means it reinforces racism, misogyny and other forms of bigotry. The Republicans say they don’t want to pay people more for staying unemployed than for working. Bull.If that were really their concern, they should pass laws to raise wages for all low-wage workers — many of them “essential workers” — and all who contribute to society with their labor. Republican politicians speak the thoughts of capitalists, who grab the profits produced by the workers, and the executives whose salaries skyrocket when they cut workers’ wages.Republicans also refuse to extend the moratorium on rents and mortgages that ended on July 25, after 120 days in force. If Congress fails to extend this moratorium and fails to extend the unemployment supplement, the likely result “will be a staggering surge in homelessness unlike anything we have seen,” said John Pollock, a Public Justice Center attorney and coordinator of the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel. (New York Times, July 29) The Democratic Heroes Act also provides major funding for state and local governments to deliver needed services, for public health measures to confront the pandemic, and for increased funding for Medicaid, as well as for subsidizing public education at all levels. Need for ‘Heroes Act’ and much moreThe Democratic Party plan falls short by omitting undocumented workers from any relief— though they do much of the essential labor on farms and in construction and retail services.  They must be included. As must gig workers and any of the working population who labor beyond the bookkeeping of official capitalism. These workers are all members of the modern proletariat.The Democratic Party, despite its Heroes Act, remains a pro-imperialist party. Along with Republicans, its majority supported next year’s $741 billion Pentagon budget, which pays the armed forces that police the world for U.S. imperialism. The Democrats backed U.S. aggressive sanctions against China, Russia and Iran and joined the conspiracy against Venezuela. No one should forget this.Regarding this week’s negotiations, there is a risk the Democrats will agree to a bad compromise for the U.S. working class. That may avoid complete disaster and chaos, but still throw more millions into poverty, hunger and houselessness. To survive and prevail in the triple crisis of pandemic, economic collapse and racist police repression, workers must unite to demand a program for which the Heroes Act is only a minimum. Extend the Heroes Act to all workers, including undocumented workers. Make the corporations pay. Show solidarity with Black Lives Matter.Easier said than done. But the Black Lives Matter movement has inspired the movement of workers and oppressed peoples through the whole world by showing what is possible, even during a pandemic. The failure of Congress to provide even the bare minimum of emergency relief may be forcing the entire working class to respond with the same energy against the same enemy – capitalism and the repressive state apparatus. This precarious situation certainly gives new meaning to the Black Panther Party  slogan: “Repression breeds resistance.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)ICUs have been overwhelmed in caring for an overload of patients who require complex care as hospitals were consistently filled with COVID-19 patients over the last year, according to the New York Times. Despite cases falling since their peak in early January, around 75% of the nation’s beds were filled over the past week. This ended on Feb. 18.Before the pandemic, U.S. hospitals generally consisted of patients who were recovering from accidents, surgery or sickness.Capitol riot now called a “coordinated attack”In this Jan. 6, 2021, file photo rioters try to break through a police barrier at the Capitol in Washington. Congress is set to hear from former security officials about what went wrong at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. That’s when when a violent mob laid siege to the Capitol and interrupted the counting of electoral votes. Three of the four testifying Tuesday resigned under pressure immediately after the attack, including the former head of the Capitol Police. Much is still unknown about the attack, and lawmakers are demanding answers. (AP Photo/John Minchillo, File)Officials testified Tuesday and called the capitol riot on Jan. 6 a “coordinated attack.” Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger and former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving all appeared before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Tuesday to discuss the riots, according to Fox News. The meeting included discussion of the security failures that led to rioters entering the capitol. “These people came specifically with equipment. You’re bringing climbing gear to a demonstration, explosives, chemical spray – you’re coming prepared,” Sund said. Another witness, acting Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert Contee, echoed Sund. “As they continue to scrub social media, we are learning more and more and more that this is clearly a coordinated effort,” Metropolitan Police Department acting chief Robert Contee said.TV shows begin to tell stories about COVID-19FILE – In this Jan. 9, 2021, file photo, Chaplain Kristin Michealsen holds the hand of a deceased COVID-19 patient while talking on the phone with the patient’s family member at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in the Mission Hills section of Los Angeles. “I have never seen this much of death and suffering,” said Michealsen, who has been a chaplain for 13 years. “I often tell families that I’m holding their loved one’s hand when they can’t and that I am with them when they are dying when they can’t be.” (AP Photo/Jae C.

Many people are upset in seeing a coronavirus-centered plot after the death of so many loved ones.“It’s strange and odd to use something that is still very prevalent in our day-to-day lives for entertainment,” Detroit makeup artist Ashley Sanford said.Other medical dramas have chosen to insert pandemic storylines as well.last_img read more
