Built on the highest point of the Katschberg Alpline Pass, 1600 meters high, the two monolithic apartment-towers edel:weiss demonstrate an almost symbolic portal between the two provinces Salzburg and Kärnten and have been appointed to act as the new town’s landmark for today. Save this picture!© Jens WeberBalancing a respect for Nature and Tradition, as well as the interests of the tourism industry means balancing the essential requirements. Building in the Alps requires a constant search for stabilisation, a constant search for new solutions to build ecologically justifiable buildings.Save this picture!© Jens WeberFor Katschberg, a traditional Austrian ski resort between Salzburg and Carinthia, Matteo Thun consciously created two vertical buildings – in order to avoid the ongoing urban sprawl of this traditional winter sports area. By preserving the surrounding green soil and by reducing the floor space to the minimum size a solution was found that is in line with the ambient environment.Save this picture!© Christian WöckingerThis architectural concept avoided the complex facilities of infrastructures for electricity and water supplies, and no supplementary roads were needed to connect the two apartment towers to the nearby Hotel Cristallo, providing all necessary services to the residences.Save this picture!© Jens WeberBy following the motto ‘kilometre 0’, wood, the main building material, once again stands up to the test. The two cylindrical structures are wrapped by a round bodied diamond rhombus structure made from local larch wood that symbolizes the direct association to the environment, fusing the inside and the exterior.Save this picture!© Christian WöckingerThe two circular residential towers with different heights balance the given ground and measuring 20 meters in diameter, house 64 apartments varying from 45 to 180 square meters. Identical layouts with different scales allow all apartments spectacular panoramic views to the natural and unaltered landscape. By using mainly natural materials, the interiors of the different residences are designed with generous layouts; lines and forms are clear and light. Two different styles of décor provide the choose of a basic configuration: a modern, urban flavour or a more classic, traditional alpine option. The entire complex is heated by the nearby power station, delivering biomass energy.Save this picture!ElevationProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Itami / Tato ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMUSE / Renzo Piano Building WorkshopSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Katschberg Pass, 5582, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

St Hilda’s becomes latest JCR to ask for rainbow flag

first_imgAlthough it was originally noted  in the agenda that  “St Hilda’s doesn’t have a flagpole like the posh colleges, but does have plenty of wall space in the bar”, an amendment was made to “ask the SCR if they will fly it on the Hilda’s flagpole” when it transpired that Hilda’s does in fact have a flagpole. Helena Dollimore was also delighted at the JCR’s reaction to the motion, and told Cherwell that the formal and flag would help raise the visibility of LGBTQ issues in the University.  The meal will be partly funded by money set aside for an LBGTQ event from the JCR, which will go towards wine for guests. The formal hall will be held on the 17th May, which is the official International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).  Other students at St Hilda’s praised the work of the Albert Kennedy Trust which “supports young LGBT 16-25 year olds who are made homeless or living in a hostile environment.”  However, with a finalist standing in as LGBTQ representative for this year there has not been the time. Stephen Pritchett told Cherwell that though there is support in college for LGBTQ awareness, “There’s just not a lot of queer Hildabeests willing/able to fill the position [of LGBTQ rep].” The motion noted that the “JCR believes: 1) It is important to recognize the 17th May and raise awareness of the struggles homosexual and transsexual people face around the world and  here in Oxford 2) Formals are one way of doing this 3) Displaying the LGBTQ flag is another way of doing this.” She said, “It sends out a really clear message that St Hilda’s JCR recognises the importance of LGBTQ issues. It’s crucial that we raise awareness of the issues that LGBTQ people face on a daily basis … and also celebrate the LGBTQ community” Stephen Pritchett, currently Treasurer of the OU LGBTQ society, as well as the St Hilda’s JCR LGBTQ representative, told Cherwell, “I think it will help make LGBTQ issues, which can be fairly invisible in this college at times, much more prominent.” St Hilda’s JCR has voted unanimously to ask the SCR to raise a rainbow flag on the college flagpole and to hold a charity formal in aid of the Albert Kennedy Trust, to celebrate the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia.  The Trust provides emergency accommodation as well as campaigning to improve attitudes in society towards LGBT young people. In previous years, St Hilda’s has hosted a cabaret to celebrate LGBTQ issues in college as part of their Gender Equality festival.  In the meeting on Sunday 12th May, the motion, proposed by Helena Dollimore and seconded by Stephen Pritchett, passed with an amendment to ask the SCR to raise a rainbow flag on the college flagpole.  The 17th May was the date in 1990 on which homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization. The previous LGBTQ officer for St Hilda’s, Ricky Nathvani, who attended the JCR meeting, said the JCR is very happy to support the charity. “The statement of support that Hilda’s sends out is absolutely clear: We do not tolerate homophobia, and to remember that this is an issue for which we all have to come together, regardless of sexuality, to overcome,” he said.last_img read more
