The Continuous Plate House 2.0 renovation pertains mainly to the first floor of the 18-year old house and consists of a folded plate, reinforced by a supporting rectangular concrete box. The outer surface of the box is finished with concrete cast in cedar board formwork, providing it with an external wooden texture. In order to further strengthen the design concept at completion, the full interior of the box, which envelops the kitchen area, was given a wood finish.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe mandate of the renovation was to convert the existing kitchen area, which included a breakfast nook and food storage area, into more of a multipurpose, cozy family kitchen. In addressing that mandate, the food storage area and corridors were eliminated, resulting in a wide open kitchen concept. The wall-mounted sink was replaced with a centered, island-style unit, making it a more accessible and functional part of the kitchen.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaSave this picture!Detailed Cross SectionA primary focus of the original project, Continuous Plate House 1.0, was to achieve a design that responded efficiently to heavy snowfall. In response to research suggesting that wind patterns would prevent snow accumulation from resting in place, the architects opted for a flat roof without a parapet, which was adopted when the house began construction in 1999.Save this picture!© Takeshi TairaThe original project embraced box-form architecture, which presented a challenge to the 2.0 design in terms of breaking free from that concept. Nevertheless, through trial and error, composition as if the floor, the wall, and the roof were connected continuously and bent into a single plate was obtained.Save this picture!© Takeshi TairaProject gallerySee allShow lessHKPI’s Office / Design SystemsSelected ProjectsCedar House / JPE Design StudioSelected Projects Share 2019 ArchDaily Save this picture!© Takeshi Taira+ 18Curated by Hana Abdel Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953684/continuous-plate-house-fads Clipboard Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeF.A.D.S.OfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationFukuiOn FacebookJapanPublished on December 26, 2020Cite: “Continuous Plate House 2.0 / F.A.D.S.” 25 Dec 2020.

#SecondHandSeptember returns to encourage people to buy pre-loved clothing

first_img Tagged with: charity retail Oxfam  600 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Melanie May | 2 September 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Oxfam has launched its #SecondHandSeptember campaign for the second year, asking consumers to buy only pre-loved clothing for the month, and share their pledge using #SecondHandSeptember and tag @OxfamGB.BAFTA award-winning actor, director, screenwriter, producer, playwright and poet Michaela Coel is the face of this year’s campaign, which aims to raise awareness about the impact of fast fashion, but could also provide a boost for charity shops affected by the impact of lockdown.Coel will feature in the windows of more than 500 Oxfam shops nationwide, showcasing clothing from the Oxfam Online Shop, which will be available to buy from Oxfam’s pop-up shop in Selfridges London Designer Galleries for four weeks from 7 September. This includes a 90s Gaultier PVC red suit, with Ossie Clarke dresses, original leather flying jackets, and 90s sportswear also available. #SecondHandSeptember returns to encourage people to buy pre-loved clothing “My idea behind the pop-up shop is about shifting perceptions and context around luxury and second hand clothes – specifically charity shops. So much money is spent by brands in investing in their marketing, advertising and stores; with the aim of charging high prices for their products. This project is a fun way to change the perception of charity shop second hand clothes – shifting them into the luxury context and space of the big guns! With all those bells and whistles – but, crucially keeping the prices the same as they would be in any Oxfam shop.”Other #SecondHandSeptember partners include eBay, which is holding a joint auction of curated vintage and Oxfam pieces, launching on 10 September, and Vestiaire Collective, which is hosting a charity sale of celebrity donated designer pieces on 16 September.All proceeds will go towards Oxfam’s work. It raises approximately £29m a year from selling clothing in its shops, with the profit enough to provide clean water for more than 2 million people during a drought. Oxfam is currently also working with local partners, governments and key UN agencies in 65 countries in response to the coronavirus crisis, which also saw it lose £5m a month during lockdown. Its work includes preventive measures like distributing soap and building handwashing stations in the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh, delivering clean water, sanitation and hygiene in Zaatari camp in Jordan and providing beds, handwashing facilities and protective clothing in quarantine centres in Gaza.Danny Sriskandarajah, Chief Executive of Oxfam GB, said:“The pandemic poses huge challenges, but it also creates an opportunity to reimagine our economies and how we live, to make lasting changes that set us on track to a fairer, healthier world.“Choosing secondhand is one way that we can all play a part in shifting to more sustainable consumption and helping to build back better from the virus. By joining Oxfam’s Second Hand September movement, collectively we can send a message to retailers asking them to change their business models to better protect the people who make our clothes and the planet we all share.”“The UK has around 11,000 charity shops that are a core feature of high streets up and down the country – as they reopen after lockdown, they need support now more than ever to raise funds for a wide range of important causes.”  599 total views,  2 views today Michaela Coel said:“I’m honoured to be the face of Oxfam’s Second Hand September campaign this year. When presented with the data from Oxfam on the impact of fast fashion I felt compelled to add my voice to this cause; I hope it raises awareness and encourages us to reflect on our buying habits and to consider how small changes can have a huge impact on the environment – and in turn the fight against poverty.”The Selfridges pop-up shop was conceived and curated by Oxfam’s independent fashion advisor Bay Garnett as part of the Selfridges sustainability initiative Project Earth.Bay Garnett said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

Many Can Benefit by Dropping Soybean Seeding Rates

first_img SHARE Many Can Benefit by Dropping Soybean Seeding Rates Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Drop-soybean-seeding-ratesOne practical takeaway from a round of winter agronomy meetings is that soybean farmers might save some money on seed costs by lowering their seeding rates. Jim Schwartz, director of PFR and agronomy at Beck’s Hybrids says it might be strange for a seed company to be testing and talking about the use of less seed, but this year was the 9th year of the study and the results are worth a look.“We continue to see that the economic optimum seeding rates for soybeans tends to be a little bit lower than many growers might be planting,” Schwartz told HAT. “We see that 125 to that 100,000 seeds per acre to be the economic optimum seeding rate, and yet we still have a lot of growers who are planting 150, 160, 170,00.”At their winter PFR Insight meetings they’re encouraging growers to test different rates on their own ground.“We’re not saying go plant 100,000 or even 115 or 1120,000. What we are saying is if you are planting in that 160,000-180,000 seeding rates, every 10,000 seeds that you cut back can save you around $4 an acre. So, we think if you’re 160, why don’t you try planting some strips in fields at 150 or 140, save yourself $8-10 an acre, and you’re not going to sacrifice hardly any yield. Our data would say, and we’re pretty confident in this multi-year, multi-location data, you’re not going to sacrifice yield, but you are going to improve your economics.”In a first time PFR study of applying starter fertility on both sides of the row in corn plots, they call it 2x2x2, Schwartz says they realized a 6-bushel yield bump. Hear more on that from Schwartz in the HAT interview:Jim-Schwartz-on-Becks-PFRLast week Beck’s announced an expansion at their El Paso, Ill. facility. Consolidating locations in central Illinois, Beck’s sold their Downs, Ill. facility to Horsch and is relocating their Practical Farm Research (PFR)® site to El Paso.“Each day we strive to not only deliver farmers with the highest quality seed, but we look for opportunities to improve processes, facilities and programs that will ultimately help farmers succeed,” said Scott Beck, president of Beck’s. “By consolidating facilities, farmers will now have access to our agronomic PFR program, product testing, distribution and sales support all at one location in central Illinois. Helping farmers succeed is at the core of everything we do, and this move is a reflection of our continued commitment to Illinois farmers.”El Paso will now be home to one of Beck’s six PFR locations, which are located across five states. In 2017, Beck’s PFR conducted more than 500 different studies designed with the farmer in mind to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Farmers can expect to tour PFR studies during the 2018 growing season and attend the first-ever Beck’s Field Show in El Paso on August 9, 2018.

St Mary’s calls for pay to meet living expenses

first_imgNurses’pay would have to be tripled in order for them to afford housing for theirfamilies in central London, a leading HR professional in the NHS has claimed.DeborahO’Dea, HR director at St Mary’s Hospital in London, believes the 50 per cent turnoverrate for newly-qualified nurses within her trust is caused by accommodationproblems.Buyinga three-bedroom house in the area costs around £180,000 – beyond the means ofexperienced nurses earning £18,950 per year.O’Deasaid, “We found it costs £1,950 per calendar month to rent a one-bedroom flatin Paddington – more than a nurse’s monthly salary. Currently, 58 per cent ofher staff live in west or northwest London, with up to 900 needing hospitalaccommodation.Surveysof hospital staff by the HR department shows that staff most likely to staywith the hospital were over aged 40.Shebelieves that recruiting older, settled people who are likely to own their ownhouse is key to solving the recruitment and retention problems.Speakingat a School of Business and Industrial Management conference on affordablehousing in the NHS in London last week, she said, “I believe there is a directlink between the housing our staff live in and providing quality healthcare tothe people of west London.“Iwant nurses to be able to get on the accommodation ladder so they can achievethe ambition of a three-bedroom flat.” St Mary’s calls for pay to meet living expensesOn 20 Mar 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

New aerogeophysical view of the Antarctic Peninsula: more pieces, less puzzle

first_imgNew airborne geophysical data reveal subglacial imprints of crustal growth of the Antarctic Peninsula by Mesozoic arc magmatism and terrane accretion along the paleo-Pacific margin of Gondwana. Potential field signatures indicate that the Antarctic Peninsula batholith is a composite magmatic arc terrane comprising two distinct arcs, separated by a >1500 km-long suture zone, similar to the Peninsular Ranges batholith in southern and Baja California. Aeromagnetic, aerogravity and geological data suggest that a mafic Early Cretaceous western arc was juxtaposed against a more felsic eastern arc which, in mid-Cretaceous times, was intruded by highly magnetic tonalitic/granodioritic plutons of island arc affinity. Suturing of the two arcs against the Gondwana margin caused the mid-Cretaceous Palmer Land orogenic event. Convergence and suturing may have been driven by two subduction zones or, alternatively, by a decrease in slab dip, leading to an inboard migration of the arc, as in California.last_img read more

The Review: The Nosebag

first_img6-8 St. Michael’s Street4/5 Two words which sum up the Nosebag: ‘elderflower wine’. Could you get any more wholesome without using ‘organic’ as a prefix? And wholesome is exactly what you will find if you venture up the creaky wooden staircase of the Nosebag’s 15th Century listed building and enter a world of terracotta walls, chunky check blinds, hanging pot plants and kitsch table flowers. The set up is simple; bench seating and counter service – cold food dished up and handed over on the spot, hot meals brought to your table. The ever-changing menu is as rustic as the décor might suggest, with simple dishes done to a consistently high standard. At lunchtime take advantage of the gargantuan portions of salad (£4.15 for three different kinds); choose between wheatberry and peanut, white cabbage and apple, or pesto pasta, for a start. Also available are quiches, jacket potatoes, soups and a handful of hot dishes such as lasagne. For dinner all the lunchtime options are still on offer, and a few extra ‘proper’ meals (£7 – £9) added. We ordered our mains first, then decided to get a chicken liver pâté to start (£4.50 with a hunk of bread and salad). The waitress behind the counter raised her eyebrows as if we had asked for our chicken to be cooked rare. ‘Are you sure?’ This was a novelty; an employee advising against a purchase, though luckily my companion views eating as a competitive sport. She did, however, have a point; the servings are very large, so make sure you work up an appetite before you visit. The pâté was delicious, though like novices we misjudged the bread to spread ratio, and ended up having to slather it onto slices of tomato when the roll disappeared. The mains were hearty and filling, the best being the beef and Guinness stew with herb and horseradish cobblers, vegetables or salad (£8.75). The cobblers (a cross between a scone and a dumpling, but far superior to both) were delicious, buttery and light, with a genius ability to soak up the stew without going soggy. Our other main, a pumpkin and red pepper tagine with couscous and salad (£8.25) was tasty but lacked the comfort-food element of the stew. The Nosebag is an excellent place for vegetarian fodder which makes up around half of their overall output; it is, however, priced very similarly to the meaty options, which may make them seem expensive to some. I suppose you pay a premium for freshness here, but it’s a worthwhile premium to pay. If you still have room, the homemade desserts and cakes should not be overlooked, and thus I am forced to make a very controversial statement: the brownies here (£1.70) are the best in Oxford. They are so good that I had to cut them up into little squares pre-consumption in order to savour every squidgy, fudgey mouthful. The Nosebag is ideal for an informal, impromptu bite to eat, a cosy haven of homely calm amidst the chaos of Oxford life. Take your mum, she’ll love it. by Kate Hayterlast_img read more
