The client, Calera de Tango’s Municipal Education Corporation along with the local municipal government, strived to build yet another sports hall as part of their master plan for providing adequate sports infrastructure for the community. The proposal tries to keep maintain the aesthetic lines of the previous municipal gymnasium, by repeating the use of Tubes metal frames.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThis allowed us to think up a clean integrated space of great proportions. Unlike the previous gymnasium, the structure remains inside the walls, creating an independent exterior skin. One of the main ideas was to achieve a clean connection between the existing school and the new sports hall. Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThe connecting element took the form of this was by a steel structure marquee made up of visible steel H-beams, which evokes the modernist ideals and acts as a homologizing element between the different clearance heights of the two buildings. Once again, based on our experiences in Japan, we prioritize simplicity in the use of interior materials.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThe mixture of white and wood highlights the rhythms of light coming in from the outside to form a balance of warm and light hues that enhance the interplay of dimensions and textures within the hall.

The main premises that were taken into account when thinking about the new shelter were the following:Save this picture!© Alejo BagueEconomically sustainable project.

As an implicit part of the Foundation’s educational project and with the experience acquired in a building such as CENTER ESPLAI, the construction of this new school of nature should have energy saving systems.In the first of the realizations, the proposal of implantation leaves from the urbanistic necessity of not exceeding the gauge of the preexisting buildings, some barracks in the form of “L” in a very precarious state of healthiness and hygiene.Save this picture!02 PlanSave this picture!03 PlanThe new equipment will consist of three distinct areas: Service building, Natura classrooms and dormitory area. The services building, where the dining room, kitchen, store and reception area and information point are located. The dining room will have a capacity of almost 100 people and will be located in a single room, where the different groups that stay in the hostel will find a space for meeting and relationship. In the building next to the dining room will be the three classrooms of Natura, with a capacity for 30 people each.Save this picture!© Alejo BagueFleeing the conventional typologies of houses of colonies, which respond to the comb scheme: circulations from which hang batteries from bedrooms with common bathrooms, the proposal is committed to some system units, in which the relationship between the useful surface and the surface built increases, since the communications between them are produced from outer space. This modular arrangement will allow, for example, to accommodate different groups within the same installation and that these maintain a certain degree of privacy within their house.The volumetric fragmentation in small autonomous units allows the graduation of the number of users and minimizes maintenance and surveillance costs, while allowing to configure a system with the entire colony.Save this picture!© Alejo BagueThe unit is proposed as a reference, archetype and image of the childhood world imagination: small houses, people, relationship with the forest, roads and the natural and, in the future, allow an easy expansion or expansion of the system itself. The adapted external routes and the steps between the different volumes allow circulation between them, thus grouping the entrances and facilitating the control by the monitors.Save this picture!SectionsWe propose 3 different types of rooms, with groups of 4, 6 or 8 children with the possibility of developing them in a level or two according to the body, resulting in a total capacity of 90 places. The upper space and the volume of air that it contains acquire an enormous importance given the occupation of the room areas, also favoring the incorporation of the control of the acoustics and of the artificial lighting on the suspended fabric that form white tubular profiles. The simplicity of the materials used has allowed a great economy in the means of execution as well as the final repercussion in its subsequent maintenance. In the interiors, painted concrete block, polished concrete pavements of fine particle size, windows 20 cm wide, inserted in 2 mm thick stainless steel frames, with painted MD door frame incorporated to darken the interior, domes of tongue and groove seen, which gives a warm tone to the interior light The location of the window assemblies on the vertical walls allows a perfect cross ventilation, independently of the prevailing wind in each case.Save this picture!© Alejo BagueFor exteriors, the uniqueness of the material: facades and roofs, both in room cells and in public buildings, responds to Parex’s Coteterm system, a flexible and self-cleaning stucco that allows the continuity of the insulation and the water-repellent treatment throughout the perimeter. The exterior routes are differentiated into two types of pavements: textured concrete planks for pedestrians and concrete scraped for the road.Given the final solution of the proposal, the spectrum of users is extended since not only will it be able to host summer camps and camps for schoolchildren, but families and groups will be able to use the equipment throughout the year.Save this picture!© Alejo BagueProject gallerySee allShow lessTbilisi Holds Georgia’s First Architecture Biennial Since Soviet IndependenceArticlesDesign Your Summer!

Crowd gathers on the Commons to call for Palestinian freedom

first_img Your government news is made possible with support from: Matt Butler center_img ITHACA, N.Y.—Around 100 people took to the Ithaca Commons on a sunny Sunday afternoon to voice their objection to the Palestinian people’s condition and the often violent campaign in Gaza carried out by the Israeli government, particularly recently. The group, appearing to come from a wide variety of backgrounds in the area, carried signs, yelled chants and delivered speeches, and followed another well-attended event that took place the previous day, May 17, on Cornell University’s campus. Though the conflict is one of the most polarizing around the world, there were no counter-protesters seen at the event, which went on uninterrupted except for one driver who passed by yelling “Go Israel.”The gathering, announced just days in advance, was prompted by a spate of violence over the last several days that has seen hundreds of Palestinians die at the hands of the Israeli government, while rocket campaigns from Hamas fighters in Palestine have killed 10 Israelis over the border. President Joe Biden, in line with the United States’ longstanding support of Israel, has reiterated that support consistently during this time, despite the violence. Like the crowd itself, the list of speakers was wide-ranging. Mary Anne Grady Flores read a statement from her sister, Clare, in support of the movement to free Palestine. Clare Flores is currently incarcerated in a federal prison for her involvement in a break-in at a nuclear submarine base in Georgia, where she and other activists wanted to disarm a nuclear missile. Rayvon Kenyon, one of the leaders of The Ithaca Pantheras activist and organizing group, drew parallels between the treatment of Palestinians overseas and the treatment of Black people in America, and urged attendees to show a real dedication to action instead of giving up after one day of protesting. Ariel Gold, the national co-director of women-centric peace group CodePink, also addressed the crowd at length. She talked about her dismay at watching the violence play out again, particularly hearing the Israeli government employ the same public relations tactics as it has in the past. Tagged: arab-israeli conflict, commons, Israel, jewish, muslim, palestine “There is no self-defense about bombing the international media,” said Gold. “There is no self-defense about bombing the main road to the main hospital. There is no self-defense about bombing entire families.”In her fiery remarks, Gold gave voice to a common theme of the event: that Israel’s government does not represent the will of the majority of Jews in America, and that its aggression towards Palestinians needs to end immediately—in the form of both this current violent campaign and the overarching suffering of people in Gaza. “We, Jews in America, from my family and so many Jews across America, we say ‘Not in my name,’” Gold finished. “As Americans, we say ‘Not with my tax dollars.’ We say ‘No’ to apartheid.”She was followed by her daughter, Isabella, who reiterated many of her mother’s points. Isabella noted that this is the fourth time she has had to come out to protest the Israel government’s treatment of Palestinians in Gaza. “Zionists will tell you that this is all very complicated—there’s nothing complicated about bombing children,” Isabella said. “This is not complicated, this is war crimes.”The event was closed by three local students, one from Cornell University and two from Ithaca High School, all of whom actually are Palestinian. The first, high schooler Aya Oulida, castigated Americans for trying to equate the conduct of Hamas with the Israeli government, before closing with a raucous “Free Palestine” chant. “Listen to the cries and screams of mothers, wives and children as they look over their loved ones begging them to come back to life, then tell me it’s a two-sided issue,” she said. “Watch $3.8 billion of our tax money go to these terrorists that claim they are justified, then tell me it’s a two sided issue. […] To those that say anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism, we say Jews say no to Israel.”Following her, Malak Abuhashim from Cornell, talked about her family overseas that she has resigned herself to never actually being able to meet.“Imagine a life where you’re constantly living in fear on the soil of your own homeland,” she said. “Imagine not knowing if you’ll ever wake up in the only place you’ve ever called home. Imagine not knowing if you’d never see your son again. […] We are witnessing a genocide.” Matt Butler is the Education & Public Health Reporter at the Ithaca Voice.

Arizona’s Hacienda Healthcare closing unit in wake of rape, pregnancy scandal

first_imgkckate16/iStock(PHOENIX) — Hacienda Healthcare, the Arizona facility where a nurse allegedly raped and impregnated a vegetative patient, has decided to close the unit where she was housed.The company said it “has come to understand that it is simply not sustainable to continue to operate our Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled” after a board directors vote earlier this month, according to a statement released Thursday.“The Hacienda Healthcare Board of Directors, after a great deal of careful consideration, has come to understand that it is simply not sustainable to continue to operate our Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled,” the statement said. “We have been working with the proper state agencies to develop a plan to help the State transition our ICF-ID patients to other facilities.”Hacienda, a health care provider for “medically fragile and chronically ill” children and young adults, did not say if the patients would be moved to other facilities it operates or to ones owned by other companies.The announcement came two days after Nathan Sutherland, a 36-year-old former nurse, pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and abuse charges after he allegedly raped and impregnated an incapacitated patient at a Phoenix long-term care facility.The 29-year-old woman, who’s been comatose for more than a decade, gave birth to a baby boy at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix on Dec. 29, sparking allegations of sexual abuse and concerns about patient safety.Investigators said Sutherland’s DNA matched a sample from the woman’s newborn. Employees at the facility said they had no idea she was pregnant.Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who recently requested an inquiry into how Hacienda employees didn’t notice that a patient had been raped, said Hacienda’s decision to move patients is “very concerning.”“State agencies have been actively working to increase oversight at this facility to ensure patients are safe and well cared for. For some patients at the facility, this is the only home they know or remember,” Ducey told ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in a statement Thursday. “Forcing this medically fragile community to move, should be a last resort. Everyone’s first priority should be protecting their health and safety.”The young woman’s identity was withheld, but the San Carlos Apache Tribe confirmed she was as a member. A spokesperson for the tribe said it is “deeply shocked and horrified” by the alleged abuse.“When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers,” San Carlos Apache Tribe Chairman Terry Rambler said in a statement Tuesday. “Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her. It is my hope that justice will be served.”Longtime CEO Bill Timmons resigned last month, a move also backed by the firm’s board of directors, and the state’s Department of Health Services said it would mandate the facility to operate under stronger guidelines for the time being.The woman’s lawyer, John Michaels, said the baby is being cared for by her family.“The family obviously is outraged, traumatized and in shock by the abuse and neglect of their daughter at Hacienda Healthcare,” Michaels said. “The family is well aware of the intense news and public interest in their daughter’s case, but at this time is not emotionally ready to make a public statement. The family would like me to convey that the baby boy has been born into a loving family and will be well cared for.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

California track defends safety record after horse is euthanized

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailwinhorse/iStock(ARCADIA, Calif.) — Santa Anita Park is touting a high rate of safety for the horses that train and race at the facility in the wake of the latest death on its main track.A 3-year-old horse named Miss Romania was euthanized Wednesday after she suffered a suspected fracture on her left humerus, according to the park. She was euthanized at the recommendation from an attending veterinarian.The death was the seventh since the winter/spring season began on Dec. 28 but the 44th since December 2018, ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV reported. However, it was the first death on the main track, where the majority of the deaths in 2019 occurred, according to the park.Despite the highly publicized deaths, the facility boasts a high rate of safety and considers itself the largest training facility in the U.S.In 2019, horses raced or trained at the facility more than 420,000 times at a safety rate of 99.99%, according to the park.Since Jan. 3, when the only other horse in 2020 died on the main track, 9,245 horses have had a timed workout or raced on the main track without a single incident until Miss Romania’s death on Wednesday, which highlights that recent safety measures are working, according to the park.Santa Anita Park has been under intense scrutiny since the number of horse deaths began to rise last year.California Gov. Gavin Newsom called for Santa Anita to be shut down after it did not heed the California Horse Racing Board’s recommendation to suspend racing. At the time, the death toll stood at 29.Santa Anita decided to continue racing because it believed that the reforms enacted earlier in the year — which included the elimination of drugs and whips on race day — were working, a spokesman for The Stronach Group, a company that owns the park, told ABC News in June.Last month, following the deaths of three horses in three days at the park, a spokesman for the California Horse Racing Board said in a statement to ABC News that the board “is committed to reducing the number of racing and training fatalities.”“We already have introduced many safety measures and still others are going through the regulatory process,” the spokesman said.Those three deaths did not occur on the main track, according to the park, which will continue to consider new safety reforms in the future alongside the California Horse Racing Board.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
