The design of this house begins with the relationship between these two concepts. Two families, the parents and their son and his wife, decided to live together for ten years in such a house that we designed. The first impression they got from living at the site was that it was very high up. The house was located on the hillside of Mt. Inwang, and was at a high altitude with a steep slope. At the entry to the site, there was a 5-meter-high retaining wall. The work environment for the house construction was not good due to the high density of the surroundings.In addition, an inconsistency between the official and current boundary line made it more difficult. Despite these obstacles, the view from the site was so beautiful that the families overlooked them.Save this picture!© Kyung RohSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kyung RohStanding on the wall, one can see the scenery around Mt. Bukak, Mt. Bukhan, and Mt. Inwang and the surrounding villages. The layout of the house was planned so that the inhabitants could enjoy this beautiful view. It was the first time for both of these families to be living in a single home together, so they had to agree on certain points regarding the garden and the nice view. However, one important issue remained. At first glance, the house looked like a single family home, but it was actually designed for two families. Therefore, we had to create a “very ambiguous boundary” that maintained a certain amount of privacy between the families, while not completely separating them.Save this picture!© Kyung RohFirst, we tried to place two buildings side by side on the site. This arrangement would have secured independent living areas for both families, but would have been inconvenient for them to use a separate garden. It seemed like two separate houses built on two narrow sites, which resulted in the families not feeling as if they were living together. However, it was certain that sharing a single, open garden would leave the space underused and put a strain on relations between the residents. This would not be a proper way to utilize 330㎡ of land in Seoul.Save this picture!© Kyung RohWe looked for ways to separate two families within a single building vertically in order to utilize the limited space of the site efficiently. We decided to provide a garden for the first floor, while the second floor would have a great view. The first floor would be a space for parents who spent time at home during their retirement, whereas the second floor would be a space for the son and wife who need a smaller area. Then we created gaps that did not intrude on either family’s private areas. Once the general outline of the house was done, the roof of the first floor became an outdoor space for the second floor. The courtyard was placed on the first floor.Save this picture!© Kyung RohSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kyung RohThis open space became a small gap where the families could communicate with each other while maintaining the two divided areas. Openings on the second floor facing the courtyard were installed at a height from which people could see the lower floor only when they get close. As a result, privacy between the two families could be adjusted according to their needs. When you open a window, for example, you can hear sounds from the first floor even if you do not get close, so you can hear what is going on below.Save this picture!© Kyung RohThe courtyard of “Doo-Jip” in Buam-Dong makes the house have easy access to natural lighting and ventilation. It also connects the interior and exterior of the house, and makes the interior space less monotonous. For instance, we created a water garden in the courtyard where families can relax. In the middle of the courtyard, there is a water garden filled with broken stones, which turns into a stone garden without water in winter. We hoped that the sky could come inside the house through this rectangular water garden by casting its reflection on its surface. We also wanted to preserve the 40-year-old apricot tree that was on the edge of the garden out of respect for the memory of the land.Save this picture!© Kyung RohDuring the construction of the house, it was difficult to work at the small building site while trying to preserve the large tree. We kept worrying about the fate of the tree as it could have died after being transplanted in the hot summer. But finally, it became the symbol of this house and greets you when you enter the front door. On the second floor, where the son and his wife lived, a wide terrace and roof garden were created in the front with an excellent view and natural lighting. It compensates for the lack of garden on the ground. This space is the most popular place for visitors because they can see the cityscape of Seoul and mountain scenery connecting from three sides. The second floor terrace, which is also a deep eave of the first floor, blocks the sight lines between each household that may compromise privacy.Save this picture!© Kyung RohWith Cyperacea plants filling the front side of the terrace, we can feel the pleasing breeze of a nice windy day. While the terrace provides the families with a wonderful view, the skylight brings warm light into each room. There are several skylights in the “Doo Jip.” They bring sunlight from the south, a design complementing the main direction of the house, which is facing east. The skylights are sloped to match the shape of the roof. They block direct sunlight in summer, while bringing warm natural light in winter. One of the best ways to enjoy this house is to observe these variations of sunlight throughout the seasons.Save this picture!© Kyung RohSave this picture!Section 01Save this picture!© Kyung RohIt has never been an easy task to blend the lifestyle of two families into one shared house. The poor construction environment of Buam-Dong provided valuable experience for us. While developing our house design, we were able to get a realistic perspective on old town housing renovation projects. Anyone can understand why a 6 meter-wide road is required when they try to pour concrete on a 4 meter-wide dead end road. Still, it is always interesting and meaningful to revitalize old and run-down places.Save this picture!© Kyung RohProject gallerySee allShow lessSuperpausée Macro Tent / Vous Architecture & DesignSelected ProjectsBeijing Fashion Factory B Courtyard / AntiStatics ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Kyung Roh Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  377 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” 2019last_img read more

On the Picket Line: UAW files for third vote at Volkswagen Tenn. plant + more

first_imgUAW files for third vote at Volkswagen Tenn. plantUnited Auto Workers Local 42 filed its third election petition for representation of 1,709 workers at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., on April 9. The petition, based on at least 30 percent of workers turning in cards seeking representation, asked for an election on April 29-30. Though the UAW’s last petition in 2015 was voted down by a 43 percent margin, the UAW cited “outside interference” from local anti-union politicians for the loss. The major issue driving this vote is workers’ anger over VW’s arbitrary shift changes.Despite VW’s early hint about remaining neutral, it delivered a legal brief to the National Labor Relations Board April 25, requesting a delay of the election on a technicality until 2020. (Chattanooga Times Free Press) This would give anti-union forces more time to conspire against the union. Already the so-called Center for Union Facts has taken out full-page attack ads in Chattanooga area papers. Anti-union billboards have been posted. (Payday Report, April 26)Volkswagen is unionized at 43 of its 45 factories worldwide. “Volkswagen might think that if they stall and delay, we will give up. But we will continue to work for a seat at the table, the same as every other Volkswagen worker around the world,” read a UAW statement. “After all these years, we know the issues and have all the information we need to make a decision.” This time, we will “Organize the South!”RWDSU organizes poultry workers in the SouthThe 1,800 poultry workers at the Equity/Tyson plant in Camilla, Ga., overwhelmingly ratified a 3-year contract with the Department Store Union (RWDSU) April 12. The agreement set new standards for poultry workers in the South: a large cut in health care costs; annual general wage increases; overtime for working on personal days, and strengthened rights covering seniority, job bidding, layoffs and recalls. “The people of Georgia are fighters,” said Edgar Fields, president of RWDSU’s Southeast Council. This contract is “going to impact so many workers not just at this facility, but for years to come at so many others.” RWDSU represents more than 10,000 poultry workers in four southern states. It’s one of the few unions that has been successful at organizing in right-to-work-for-less states. (rwdsu.org, April 13)NCOSH cites McDonald’s in “Dirty Dozen” listThe National Council for Occupational Safety and Health, a federation of labor union, health and tech professionals, and community coalitions, just added McDonald’s to its annual “Dirty Dozen” list of employers whose unsafe practices put communities at risk. McDonald’s was cited for dismissing pervasive sexual harassment at its restaurants. The NCOSH report is released in observance of Workers’ Memorial Week, which began April 22, to honor workers who lost their lives on the job as well as those who suffered workplace injuries and illnesses.More than two dozen McDonald’s workers have filed sexual-harassment complaints with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. (ACLU.org, Jan. 19) “It’s hard for me to even talk about what happened at my job,” says Tanya Harrell. “A co-worker locked me in the bathroom, exposed himself and tried to rape me.  I’m not the only one. A big company like McDonald’s — they have the resources to prevent this horrible behavior. What are they waiting for?” (coshnetwork.org, April 24)With sales of more than $37.6 billion in 2017 and the ability to employ more than 1 million, Mickey D’s certainly has the resources to end sexual harassment on the job. Time’s up, McDonald’s!What drives teachers to strike? Low payA study by the Economic Policy Institute, released April 24, shows that from 1996 to 2018 the average weekly wages of public school teachers, when adjusted for inflation and summers off, have decreased by $21, while weekly wages of other college graduates have risen by $323. The analysis, based on Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows the teachers’ weekly wage penalty reached a record 21.4 percent in 2018. When teachers’ better benefits were factored in, the final penalty was 13.1 percent in 2018.Noting that low pay is a prime reason for education workers’ strikes and walkouts since 2018, report co-author Lawrence Mishel summarized that low wages are “making it harder to attract people into teaching and to retain teachers, and this is bad for students and our nation.” EPI analysis shows the teachers’ weekly wage penalty is greater than 20 percent in 21 states and the District of Columbia, including states with recent teacher strikes and activism: Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Virginia and Washington.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EPA Plans RFS Public Hearing in Kansas City, Missouri

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News EPA Plans RFS Public Hearing in Kansas City, Missouri While announcing its Renewable Fuel Standard proposal this week, the Environmental Protection Agency also announced plans to conduct a public hearing in Kansas City, Missouri. Following its proposal last year, EPA held a public hearing in Kansas City, Kansas. This year’s hearing is planned for Thursday, June 9. The public comment period will remain open until July 11. This week, EPA proposed to increase the renewable fuel volume requirements across all types of biofuels. However, ethanol groups say the increases are not enough. The proposal for ethanol is 200 million gallons shy of the 15 billion gallons mandated by Congress.Groups opposing the EPA proposal include the National Chicken Council, which charges the EPA is creating an artificial demand for corn-based ethanol beyond what the fuel market can bear. The group says the proposal will “have unintended consequences for other corn users,” like livestock producers.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE EPA Plans RFS Public Hearing in Kansas City, Missouri SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – May 20, 2016 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleMonsanto Reviewing Bayer ProposalNext articleIndiana Farm Bureau to Hold Strategic plan Meetings Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

In another decision yesterday, the commission also stripped Vafa, a news agency and website linked to the veterans of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, of its licence.”Caricature is being restricted by the fierce infighting between Iran’s rival government factions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Kayhan e Caricature joins the long list of publications that have fallen victim to the regime’s repressive policies. The Kayhan media group and, in particular, its national daily Kayhan are extremely conservative. Kayhan’s editor, Hossin Shariatmadry, was appointed by Ayatollah Khamenei in person at the start of the past decade”Kayhan has distinguished itself by repeatedly accusing journalists, intellectuals and dissidents of being in the pay of foreign interests. Nonetheless, since everyone has the right to freedom of information, we regard this decision, like last month’s suspension of the newspaper Shargh, as unfair and reprehensible.”The culture ministry offshoot’s decision to suspend two publications that support regime hardliners came exactly a week after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a news conference on 1 October that “the (culture) ministry’s decision to suspend the daily Shargh was incorrect.”The offending Kayhan e Caricature cartoon showed a man posing liked a male model on a catwalk surrounded by admiring women and alluded to a Coranic story about the Prophet Joseph and Zulaikha. Pro-government media launched a campaign about it a month after it appeared, although Kayhan’s editor apologized and stopped the bimonthly’s publication.The commission’s withdrawal of Vafa’s licence yesterday was the result of an administrative court ruling. “We received no summons and, to my knowledge, no one had filed a complaint against us,” Vafa editor Naseraldien Islamifard said. “The agency was suspended without our being able to defend ourselves.”Vafa, which describes itself as the news agency of “women and families,” recently carried articles criticizing a senior member of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.
