In a rural setting, surrounded by farmhouses, agricultural land and woods, a house with traditional elements is located. At the same time, it has a dynamic shape with shifted slopes and folds in the roof that are also reflected in the interior spaces. However, the house retains a traditional shape like those in the surroundings.Save this picture!© Gustav WilleitThe choice of materials also reflects this mutual relation: the exterior plaster also covers the interior of the house, while the black-brown varnished larch of the roofing is also used for the windows and door frames. The choice of wood is linked to tradition, specificity that of the surrounding farms. It can also be found in the sliding shutters that give the project a sense of privacy or, if the user decides, they can be opened to establish direct contact with the landscape.Save this picture!© Gustav WilleitSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Gustav WilleitThe windows establish strong relations with the landscape using window profiles that frame it in new and unexpected perspectives and introducing recessed windows that bring the user closer to nature and immerse him in it. B house rethinks traditional openings into new dynamics. The result is a playful effect that works with proportions, perspectives and materiality.Save this picture!© Gustav WilleitThe plans have different heights depending on the direction of the roof.

Opening Pandora’s box

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Opening Pandora’s box Latest Stories Print Article Skip Published 9:47 am Monday, June 29, 2009 With youthful assistance, I “created” my stations – Highway 101 — because they sing my kind of country music. Ralph Stanley — because I’m a bluegrass fan. Jean Ritchie — those old Appalachian ballads are my heritage. John Denver — who is my all-time favorite, and Peter, Paul and Mary whose folk music sustained me when I was off “finding myself.”Learning to listen wasn’t easy.I still “bothered” the young man across from me. “Too loud?” I didn’t think anyone could hear the music except me. Then I noticed that another young fellow had his plugs IN his ears. Mama told me to never put anything smaller than my elbow in my ear.“No, you’ve got the earphones on backwards,” he said. “This piece (the microphone) fits IN your ear, not outward.When I inserted the plugs, I no longer broadcast “my” music throughout the office. But I’m not used to having music played inside my head. After about two hours, I was as dizzy as a doodle. I couldn’t walk straight and my head was spinning. I had to swig down a co-cola just to right myself.Now, I just put an ear plug in one ear, but I’ve gotten a little concerned. I think I can hear better out of my right ear than my left, and I worry that I’m losing my hearing. So, I’m using the left ear plug to exercise my left ear drum. I don’t want to have to wear a hearing aid. It would interfere with me and my music. Me and Pandora.The really great thing is that I open Pandora’s box, click on one of my five stations, and then it’s up to Pandora to play one song after the other from my “stations” of music.For a while it was Highway 101, then Tanya Tucker and Reba. All of my favorites from that “station.” But, since I clicked on Peter, Paul and Mary, I haven’t clicked again.Their music – that station – has taken me back to a best time in my life –the summers that I spent as a national park employee. A time when college students were on the edge of asserting themselves, expressing their opinions and demonstrating against anything and everything. But only on the edge.We were still on the soft fringe of innocence. We were idealistic and optimistic and deeply appreciative of being “on the mountain side where the rivers change direction across the Great Divide.”My Peter, Paul and Mary station took me back to the starry nights when we sat at the foot of the Grand Teton Mountains and sang softly into the night great songs like “This Land is Your Land,” “The Answer Is Blowing in the Wind,” “500 Miles” and “Never Die Young.”Songs with words that you could understand and tunes that forever lingered in your mind and in your heart.Songs that were so sweet and meaningful that, when you heard them again 40 years down the road, they took you back to that wonderful time when you were young and idealistic and filled with the hope that is always at the bottom of Pandora’s box. Book Nook to reopen Now, I need to say that I have a CD player on my desk and I play “my” music which, grates on the nerves of my co-workers who are still wet behind the ears.So, they needed the plugs, not me.But, when it was explained to me that Pandora is free Internet music and you can order up your kind of music and it plays without the interruption of commercials or news, my ears perked up. Just me and “my” music?Ahhh. Plug me in.

No. Honestly, I’m lovin’ it.I had noticed that the young folks around the office sat in their cubicles with plugs in their ears that attached to tiny cords that connected them to Pandora’s box. I didn’t ask. I didn’t want to know.But when a set of ill-fitting ear plugs was offered to me, at first, I politely refused.

I’ve faired all right without it.But, if there’s any truth at all about the big jar that Pandora toted around, then there was, at the very bottom of it, hope.

Soon he got tired and had to stop. I kept going and ran away from home.”Crockett said about two years later he returned and his own family didn’t recognize him.

Oxford feminists in publicity drive

first_imgThroughout 6th week, St Hilda’s College is hosting its annual Gender Equality Festival, during which a wide range of free events will be hosted at the college.The festival was established soon after the college became mixed in 2008. St Hilda’s Women’s Officer Alice Holohan describes it as “a way to celebrate the college’s inclusive history in a progressive and positive fashion”.Daytime speakers include Dean Vivienne Faull, Dean of York Minster and the first female dean in the Church of England, who will speak on the position of women in the Church after a measure to allow women to become bishops was rejected in November.The college will also host evening events such as a life drawing class, a stand-up comedy evening and a JCR v MCR debate.Helen Reid, a St Hilda’s student assisting with the organisation of the festival, commented, “It’s a chance for students to be confronted with questions of gender and sexual politics which we are all, perhaps often subconsciously, confronted with and which affect us on an everyday basis.”Reid continued, “I hope the festival will spark thought and discussion about gender equality within the student body, through showcasing successful and intelligent men and women who believe in the principle and understand its complexity.”Another recent student-run feminist campaign to attract media attention is the ‘Who needs feminism?’ campaign, organised by WomCam. Participants completed the slogan, “I need feminism because…” in whiteboards, and were photographed holding their responses outside the Exam Schools, Radcliffe Camera, Radcliffe Science Library and at a Wadham based WomCam meeting.Following the success of the first event on the fourth of February, a second was held on the seventh, bringing the total number of photographs taken to just under 500. WomCam officer Rebekka Hammelsbeck, who organised the campaign, told Cherwell, “WomCam organised the “Who needs feminism?” campaign because we believe that feminism is still important – and not just in some abstract sense but important for us right here and right now. Feminism is a broad and diverse movement as well as positive and empowering, and that is exactly what the pictures show.”Hammelsbeck detailed the “huge response” the movement gained online, adding, “On Facebook we “reached” about 200,000 people in the week after our photo-shoots, Mary Beard was tweeting about us and a couple of pictures circulated on Tumblr with over 70,000 notes.”The ‘Who needs feminism?’ campaign was also staged at Balliol College as part of the JCR Welfare Week; women’s officer Alice Beech estimated the number of participants to be approximately 30-40. She noted, “There was quite a variety of people there – not just students who speak out regularly about feminism or sexism, but also some who might have unfairly been assumed to have no interest in the matter and that was especially encouraging”.Emily Troup, also a women’s officer at Balliol, commented, “Additionally I think what the campaign exposed was the backlash feminists sometimes experience, particularly from other women. Feminism isn’t a dirty word and the movement itself affects everyone, regardless of gender; I think almost the unwillingness of some students to write a board showed more than those who did.”During the JCR Welfare Week, Balliol also hosted an all-women’s self defence class titled, “Doughnuts in the Dojo”; Troup explained, “We all celebrated afterwards with a large amount of confectionery.”last_img read more
