This house, located in a 1400 sqm plot inside a golf and country club, is to be inhabited by a family of four. Due to its location, strong constraints about shape, materials, and pitched roofs narrowed the project possibilities from scratch. Starting with this constraints the design process consisted in studying the archetypical shape of a house and its different possibilities.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe initial request for a traditional hip-roofed volume turned into two separated ones where the “roof” and the “walls” merge into the same element. The overall concept of the house attempts to discuss pre-established statements, not only regarding its elements such as “floor”-“wall”-“roof” but also about traditional programmatic configurations. Rethinking the position of the “quincho”, typically detached from the house, as well as the connection between the public and private areas.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThese different programmatic spaces are combined and split suggesting non-traditional layouts are also possible. This idea of fragmentation increases the connection between inner and outer spaces throughout the house. By opening the volume a void is created, the inner patio, which acts as the first instance of the promenade brings the surrounding landscape into the house. Once inside, a big, homogenous space contains the kitchen, the dining and the living space all in one. The high and pitched ceiling makes reference to the outer form. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteA glass corridor that drives through the access patio is the nexus between the “quincho”, the laundry and the gym spaces. The staircase, stroked by a cenital light leads to the private areas: on one hand the main bedroom, which overlooks to the golf court and on the other, two bedrooms that dialogue with the street and the inner patio. Both volumes that remind the archetypical form, are cladded with just one material, travertine, enclosing a solid and simple way of living. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessU.S. Mayors Join Coalition for New Buildings to be Net-Zero by 2030Architecture NewsAndres Gallardo Captures Copenhagen’s Surreal and Colorful Geometric FormsArchitecture News Share ArchDaily Area:  427 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Gonzalo Viramonte Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Argentina “COPY” House CM / Además arquitectura Architects: Además arquitectura Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs CopyHouses•Canning, Argentina Save this picture!© Gonzalo Viramonte+ 31Curated by Danae Santibañez Share “COPY” Houses Year:  CopyAbout this officeAdemás arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCanningArgentinaPublished on September 01, 2018Cite: “House CM / Además arquitectura” [Vivienda Unifamiliar CM / Además arquitectura] 01 Sep 2018.

People’s power defeats new jail

first_imgSan Francisco, Dec. 18 – Against all odds, a grassroots coalition has defeated a plan to build a new, 384-bed downtown jail at a cost of between $240 million and $465 million, with 30 years of debt financing. In what the No New SF Jail Coalition called “an historic moment in our long and difficult fight against jail expansion,” the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted on Dec. 15 to reject the new jail plan.“I am not going to support another stand-alone jail to continue to lock up African Americans and Latinos in this city. We are not going to continue to lock up people who have mental illness and substance abuse problems and clearly need to be treated,” said Board President London Breed, reported the Dec. 14 San Francisco Examiner.Activists shut down budget meetingThe decisive moment in the two-year No New SF Jail campaign may have come earlier on Dec. 2, when about 100 people took over the Board of Supervisors chambers in City Hall to demand “Stop the jail project now!” As five young organizers deployed a lockdown, the crowd unfurled a banner and shut down a Budget Committee meeting that had been expected to rubber-stamp the jail proposal.Meanwhile, three young Black women led nonstop chanting and dancing for more than two hours until police cleared the room. They chanted, “Lift us up, don’t lock us up,” “Kids not cages,” “Affordable housing, not jail beds,” “Supervisor Tang, do the right thang” and “House keys, not handcuffs.” Protesters shook their keys in time with the chant. When an official tried to stop the chanting, saying, “So we can get on with public comments,” an older man shouted, “This is public comment!”Last-minute vote was unanimousThe fate of the jail proposal was touch and go, right up until the last minute. Many people thought the plan would pass, as it was backed by the sheriff, the mayor and other movers and shakers in the city. As a No New SF Jail Coalition statement said, “This just goes to show that when we use our people power we actually shift our political conditions and realities.” (Dec. 16) In the end, the board vote on Dec. 15 was a unanimous “No!”Community members had testified at the public hearing and made key points: Some 85 percent of people in the San Francisco jail are simply awaiting trial and cannot afford bail. So the jail is really “a paupers’ prison.” They stressed that African Americans make up more than half of those locked up in city jails, yet are only 4 percent of the city’s population, as a result of gentrification, displacement and lack of jobs.Another point raised was that jail promoters used tricky financing — “certificates of participation,” where taxpayers pay a higher interest rate — in order to get around public opposition. Normally a bond issue is used to finance projects like the new jail, but that wouldhave required a ballot measure that jail promoters knew they would lose.Lisa Marie Alatorre, in a statement from the San Francisco Coalition on Homelessness, said, “We don’t want jails that are newer and nicer. We want alternatives to imprisonment and permanentaffordable housing, and for people locked inside to return to their communities. As we’ve shown today, we will make this happen through our collective strength.” (Dec. 15)Kamau Walton, a member of Critical Resistance Oakland and Black Lives Matter Bay Area, emphasized, “[W]e reject the notion that Black residents’ only way of accessing resources like mental healthcare is by criminalizing them, arresting them and locking them away.”(, Dec. 15)Others supporting the campaign to stop the new jail included the Letter Carriers union, Teachers union, Tenants union and California Coalition for Women Prisoners.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The book, co-authored by educational consultants Allison Zmuda, Greg Curtis and Diane Ullman, features Aveson as one of the only schools implementing personalized learning, a way of teaching and learning that is catching on in public education across the country.Aveson’s contributions to Learning Personalized came after Denver education leaders visited the school last year and witnessed what they called, “one of the most authentic” personalized learning models in the country. Upon hearing this, Zmuda visited Aveson for a firsthand look at the school and to explore including their work in Learning Personalized.“There is a significant interest in personalized learning around the nation,” says Zmuda. “But Aveson is remarkable both in their design and their commitment to create this learning environment with their students and families every day.”The book, published by Jossey-Bass, focuses on clearly defining personalized learning, a “progressively student driven model in which students deeply engage in meaningful, authentic and rigorous challenges to demonstrate desired outcomes.” Although the concept has gained interest in some U.S. public schools, it is still often misunderstood and implemented only on a limited basis.Aveson teachers, students and leaders contributed day-in-the-life examples to the book as well as rubrics for guiding educators in implementing personalized learning at the classroom level. Zmuda also interviewed Aveson executive director, Kate Bean, about her experience in opening a school focused on personalized learning to provide a snapshot of the challenges to implementing the model.Aveson leaders say Learning Personalized authors have created a comprehensive framework for personalized learning and they expect that the book, as well as Aveson’s pioneering work, will serve as a foundation for other public schools to adopt it.“Aveson was started for the benefit of all public school children not just the students who attend Aveson public schools,” says Bean. “We are hopeful that our experience and its inclusion in this book will open the door for continued conversations with school districts locally and nationwide and allow us to fulfill our charter’s goal to foster the evolution of public education.”Zmuda will be in Pasadena on May 7, 2015, 7:30 p.m. for a Learning Personalized book discussion and presentation at the Pasadena City College Community Education Center, 3035 East Foothill Blvd, in Pasadena. Her presentation is free and open to the public.
