The Moeda House project was designed to take full advantage of the potential of the landscape. Steep slopes, a privileged view of the mountains and a preserved forest surround the property, located in the countryside of the city of Moeda, in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Its isolated spot allows the interior spaces to integrate with the landscape, bringing the view into the house. The project makes the best of these conditions and proposes an open configuration of spaces, with little divisions between rooms and large glass panels on the facades. This house gives new light to the typology of the rural residences of Minas Gerais, with its typical wooden structures and ceramic roof by giving is transparency and lightness.Save this picture!© Carlos DiasSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Carlos DiasTwo blocks separate living and kitchen from the bedrooms, solving privacy issues, which become a challenge in open spaces. The living block, comprises living room, kitchen and toilet, and is infilled where one can enjoy the best view. A wooden deck extends towards the landscape. Leaning over the sloping stretch of land, this platform hangs over the forest, increasing the sensation of lightness that is the main feature of this project. At the end of this deck there is an unusually shaped pool that drives the visitor’s gaze to the landscape.Save this picture!© Carlos DiasThe bedroom block is more reserved. Brick walls, cement floors, gabion walls and the wooden structure remain faithful to the rustic language of its architecture. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and mini deck, so residents can also admire the view from the comfort of their rooms.Save this picture!© Carlos DiasProject gallerySee allShow lessStudio Gang Breaks Ground on Museum of Natural History Expansion in New YorkArchitecture NewsNormal House / T O B ArchitectSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Geistlinger & Hayes: Your college football briefing for Saturday

first_imgThe Badger Herald Sports section’s weekly double feature is highlighting the entire 2016 Championship Weekend slate among all Power 5 conference teams.For any fellow college football junkies out there, feel free to chime in via Twitter with questions, comments or requests to @BHeraldSports for the column going forward.Football: No. 6 Wisconsin preps for No. 7 Penn State’s high-powered offenseWith Saturday’s appearance at Lucas Oil Stadium, the University of Wisconsin football team will become the most common participant in Read…Big Ten: No. 6 Wisconsin (10-2) vs. No. 7 Penn State (10-2)Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, INWhen: 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3TV: FOX (Channel 617 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Wisconsin (-3.0)The Big Ten Championship Game comes with playoff implications, as both University of Wisconsin and Penn State University look for the signature win with hopes of catapulting into the top 4. The Nittany Lions have been absolutely steamrolling their competition lately, winning their last eight consecutive games en route to a Big Ten East crown. Meanwhile, the Badgers will look to senior quarterback Bart Houston to carry them to their third conference championship game. This should be a gritty, low scoring affair played tight to the chest on both sides, and the battle on the ground will be key. Look for the Badgers stout defense to keep PSU star running back Saquon Barkley in check and continue their typical unexciting, efficient play. With a win Saturday and either a loss by No. 3 Clemson University and/or No. 4 University of Washington, Wisconsin could very well sneak into the No. 4 spot of the playoff.Geistlinger: Wisconsin 27, Penn State 23Hayes: Penn State 34, Wisconsin 23Big 12: No. 10 Oklahoma State (9-2) vs No. 9 Oklahoma (9-2)Where: Memorial Stadium, Norman, OKWhen: 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 3TV: FOX (Channel 617 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Oklahoma (-11.0)Among all the chaos and uncertainty of Championship Week, the Big 12 soldiers on, despite having resigned themselves to playoff-contention irrelevancy weeks ago. The “de facto” Big 12 title game promises to be everything its Big Ten counterpart is not: a flashy, fast-paced, high-scoring affair with practically a Hardy Boys mystery search for the complete disappearance of 22 defensive players for 60 minutes, and last but not least, void of any playoff implications. Look for University of Oklahoma to continue their traditional domination as the big-brother program and, tuck any thoughts of a conference championship to bed for Oklahoma State University Saturday afternoon.Geistlinger: Oklahoma 47, Oklahoma State 31Hayes: Oklahoma 42, Oklahoma State 38Pac 12: No. 4 Washington (11-1) vs No. 8 Colorado (10-2)Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CAWhen: 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2TV: FOX (Channel 617 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Washington (-7.5)If we assume the Pac 12 Conference is a rational actor in the economic sense, they should be telling University of Colorado to throw the Championship game, which would result in a $6 million payout per school if No. 4 Washington makes the College Football Playoff. Although, their résumé’s legitimacy is questionable to some, Washington should maintain the No. 4 spot in the nation if the Huskies capture the conference title against the Buffaloes Saturday. Yet, the Colorado defense should some success bothering Washington’s star quarterback Jake Browning and the Husky offense, and look for the Buffs to play an inspired game in their program’s first ever appearance in the Pac 12 championship game.Geistlinger: Colorado 30, Washington 28Hayes: Washington 34, Colorado 24Football: Wisconsin remains at No. 6 in second-to-last College Football Playoff pollAfter the final results from rivalry weekend served the College Football Playoff Selection Committee its worst nightmare on a silver Read…SEC: No. 1 Alabama (12-0) vs. No. 15 Florida (9-3) Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GAWhen: 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3TV: CBS (Channel 603 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Alabama (-24.0)The 2016-17 University of Alabama team has opened the discussion to be considered one of the best college football has ever seen, and we’re still three games away from the national championship. Alabama’s defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown since Oct. 22 in their 33-14 rout over No. 6 Texas A&M. Thus, this stretch includes the entire month of November in what some are celebrating as “No Touchdown November.” And if that wasn’t enough to sell you on how good this Tide team is, that same defense has also outscored all five of their opponents’ offenses during this 42-day run. Hypothetically, this means that Alabama’s defense (as well as team as a whole) has been so good, they have not even needed to utilize an offense. In theory, if Bama’s offense had simply run or kneed the ball without scoring to match the same time of possession as their scoring drives and punted on every single possession in those five games, they would have still won all five. The University of Florida has averaged a measly 16.6 points per game over their own last five games, which could be a grave indicator for Saturday against the Crimson Tide. Alabama covers 24 and then some Saturday, this Tide team is for real.Geistlinger: Alabama 35, Florida 10 Hayes: Alabama 34, Florida 6No. 3 Clemson (11-1) vs. No. 23 Virginia Tech (9-3)Where: Camping World Stadium, Orlando, FLWhen: 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3TV: ABC (Channel 607 on Residence Hall Cable) / WatchESPNLine: Clemson (-10.5)Virginia Tech has been a tough team to peg this season with quite a few ups and downs between impressive and unpredictable performances. The Hokies are going to need be near perfect if they are going to have a chance to hang with No. 3 Clemson University and star quarterback Deshaun Watson. Clemson doesn’t look quite up to par with the same Tigers team that competed with Alabama in the national championship game last year, but they certainly look like top-4 playoff material. Expect the Tigers to handle business against Tech and lock down the No. 3 seed in the playoff selection Sunday afternoon.Geistlinger: Clemson 32, Virginia Tech 26Hayes: Clemson 42, Virginia Tech 24last_img read more

PSG loan offer could scupper United’s Di Maria plans

first_imgManchester United will have to make a big move if they are to land Angel Di Maria this summer, after Paris Saint-Germain reportedly re-entered the race for the Real Madrid winger.The French champions last week ruled themselves out of contention, insisting Di Maria was too expensive to sign this summer, having already splashed out £50m on David Luiz.But according to the Mirror, PSG have overtaken United in the pursuit of the Argentine once again, having come up with a loan arrangement which will give them the option to buy Di Maria next summer.Real boss Carlo Ancelotti yesterday admitted he was unsure where Di Maria’s future was, amid mounting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.But despite Man United boss Louis van Gaal telling chief executive Ed Woodward to do whatever it takes to bring the international to Old Trafford, it seems they could be pipped by PSG if they don’t step up their pursuit soon.last_img read more

Commonwealth SG lauds Guyana for climate change fight

first_imgWith initiatives in place like the 371,000 hectares of forest preserved at Iwokrama, Guyana was on Friday commended by the Secretary General for the Commonwealth, Baroness Patricia Scotland for its conservation efforts.During a press conference on Friday, Baroness Scotland in fact noted that Guyana was leading the fight. According to Baroness Scotland, Iwokrama is one of the lungs of the world, as its large tracts of forest help with greenhouse gases.“I come to Guyana one month before the beginning of the hurricane season. And we know that climate poses an existential threat to the whole of our Region here. Its worrying cause in the last few days we have seen storms hit Jamaica.”“We also know there has been flooding across Asia,” Scotland said. “Many have died in India. And regrettably, it is an echo of what started last year. Cause if you remember we started with mudslides in India.”The Iwokrama forest account for 1.6 per cent of Guyana’s landmassMaking specific reference to Iwokrama, Scotland noted that the project has served as an example to other countries. This example is a timely one, considering the negative effects climate change is having on other countries.“We had flooding, first in Sri Lanka, then Bangladesh and Pakistan. Then by the time the real hurricane season started, we saw total devastation. We saw Hurricane Irma, which lead to the evacuation of Barbuda.”“And then (there’s) Maria, which virtually destroyed the island of my birth Dominica and caused damage to the GDP. And we know Dominica had suffered years before from tropical storm Erica. So it is with some trepidation that we watch a repeat and oceanographers tell us this year may be as challenging as last year and some fear it could be worst.”Iwokrama is dedicated as a place of research and its forests account for 1.6 per cent of Guyana’s land mass. Its 371,000 hectares is also equivalent to two per cent of Guyana’s forests.The Iwokrama centre itself was established in 1996 in order to manage the forest area. This was arrived at following an agreement between the then Government and the Commonwealth Secretariat.The United Nations (UN) has classified combating climate change as Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 13. According to the organisers of World Earth Day, at least two million people die globally, due to indoor and outdoor pollution. It also estimates that by the year 2030, food prices will go up by 50 per cent due to climate change.The rising temperature, global warming and other ecological imbalances are due to the fact that half of the world’s rainforests are gone. The deaths of 70,000 persons in Europe were due to rising temperatures in 2003. These imbalances are also leading to frequent flooding and other disasters across the globe, which include forest fires, again impacting the trees.last_img read more

Nitish Kumar to expand Cabinet with JD(U) members

first_imgBihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is set to expand his Council of Ministers on Sunday with the likely induction off our new Ministers from the Janata Dal(U), party officials said on Saturday.Earlier, Mr. Kumar called on Governor Lalji Tandon amid reports that he would expand his government to fill four ministerial berths, including the vacancies created by three Ministers who had resigned after being elected to the Lok Sabha last month.One post fell vacant last year after Manju Verma resigned as Social Welfare Minister in connection with the Muzaffarpur shelter-home sexual abuse case.Mr. Kumar’s meeting with the Governor came a day after the JD(U) leader had made it clear that none of his party MPs would join Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government in the future.The Cabinet expansion is likely to take place at 11 a.m. on Sunday at the Raj Bhavan, with four JD(U) leaders considered close to Mr. Kumar set to become Ministers, a party official said on condition of anonymity.With only 25 Ministers in the 243-member Assembly, the Ministry is below full strength.“There could be 11 more Ministers in the Cabinet but tomorrow only four are likely to take oath,” said a JD(U) leader, who declined to be identified.JD(U) leaders Ashok Chaudhury, Sanjay Jha, Ranju Geeta, Neeraj Kumar and Lallan Paswan are among the contenders widely tipped to become Ministers. However, no names from the State’s ruling alliance partner, the BJP, have come up as yet for possible inclusion.Miffed allyMr. Kumar is said to be upset with the BJP leadership for their offer of “symbolic representation” instead of “proportional representation” in the Union Ministry.“All along during the NDA government formation, even in State government, we have been following proportional representation,” Mr. Kumar told presspersons on Friday.Mr. Chaudhury, earlier a State Congress president and an education minister in the mahagathbandhan government, had joined the JD(U) after Mr. Kumar left the mahagathbandhan and joined hands with the BJP. Mr. Jha is considered close to Mr. Kumar and took oath as a party MLC about three days ago. Mr. Jha was said to have wanted to contest the Lok Sabha poll from Darbhanga but had to refrain from doing so as the seat had gone to the BJP under the NDA seat sharing pact.Ms. Geeta is JD(U) MLA from Bajpatti in Sitamarhi district and she is likely to be State’s next Social Welfare Minister.Party MLC and spokesperson Neeraj Kumar is said to be close to senior party leader Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh who was recently elected to the Lok Sabha from Munger.Mr. Paswan had recently joined the JD(U) along with other Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leaders and had supported the chief minister in his political battle with the RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha. “Lallan Paswan and Neeraj Kumar may be rewarded by ministerial berths this time for their continuous support to Nitish Kumar,” said a JD(U) leader, speaking on condition of anonymity.Earlier, three ministers including Mr. Singh and Dinesh Chandra Yadav of the JD(U) and Lok Janshakti Party State president Pashupati Kumar Paras had won Lok Sabha elections from Munger, Madhepura and Hajipur.last_img read more

The Latest Germany preparing also for nodeal Brexit

first_imgLONDON — The Latest on Britain’s exit from the European Union (all times local):10:55 a.m.Germany’s finance minister says Berlin still hopes for a regulated British exit from the European Union but that the country is also prepared for the possibility of a Brexit without a negotiated deal.Olaf Scholz, who is also the vice chancellor, was quoted by the Passauer Neue Presse newspaper Friday as saying that an unregulated Brexit would be bad for everyone, and hit the British the worst.But, he says, “we are preparing ourselves very carefully for both variants, the controlled and the uncontrolled Brexit. Both present us with challenges, but we can and will manage them.”___10:00 a.m.European Union diplomats are meeting to finalize the draft divorce agreement between Britain and the bloc, amid a warning from Spain that it will oppose the deal if it isn’t guaranteed a say over the future of Gibraltar.Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez tweeted that Britain and Spain “remain far away” on the issue and “if there are no changes, we will veto Brexit.”Spain wants the future of the tiny British territory at the tip of the Iberian Peninsula to be a bilateral issue between Madrid and London.Spain doesn’t have a veto on the withdrawal agreement, which does not have to be approved unanimously. But it could hold up a future free-trade deal between Britain and the EU, which would require approval of all 27 EU nations.The Associated Presslast_img read more
