The V house design concept was planning modern a Mediterranean Villa with an historic preserved wall. Between the historic wall and the house a patio was created to act as outdoor foyer. The patio functions as a translucent interior elevation which buffers the bedroom towards the street. Save this picture!© Itay SikolskyOn the ground floor the public space are set as an open plan between patio and the outdoor garden. The design intention was to diffuse the boundaries of open gardens and the interior public spaces. The glass elevations on the ground floor are used as dynamic partitions, while the upper windows open towards the gardens. In designing of the exterior elevations, a framing element is used to capture a segment of the gardens landscape scenery. Save this picture!© Itay SikolskyThe interiors were designed with a mix of soft and rough textures within the glass framed elevations. On the ground plan the kitchen is composed of a dark brown woods and stainless steel, while the living room is in eclectic array of furniture, style vary from 60’s to contemporary. The swimming pool is set in the Mediterranean garden courtyard. The pool reflects the neighboring urban images in to the house and acts as an oasis in the warm local climate. Save this picture!© Itay SikolskyOn the upper floors a set of exterior balconies were planned to overlook the southern back garden and the front patio. Local plant and fauna was chosen for each patio, garden, balconies, and terrace. Save this picture!Section AAThe architect’s initial plan was to search for an architectural language which combines local references and contemporary Mediterranean elements. These local elements such as: patio, terraces, and courtyard are redefined with a modern interpretation.

Inquest hears how Chancellors chairman James Scott-Lee was killed by ‘fidgety’ horses

first_imgAn inquest into the tragic death of James Scott-Lee, the much-respected Chairman of estate agency group Chancellors, has heard how the 66-year-old was killed by his own horses within the stables of his estate in the village of Kirtlington, Oxfordshire on October 27th last year.James, who had headed up Chancellors Group since the 1990s and was a very keen horse and carriage enthusiast, had been out for a seven-mile drive with his driver and a friend and, after returning to his stables, had helped unhook the horses from the vehicle.The inquest was told that one of the horses lunged forward, knocking him over and, when the second horse also became agitated, the carriage was subsequently ridden over him.James remained conscious and initially complained only of pains in his shoulder and tingling in his hands but after being taken by ambulance to the John Radcliffe Hospital outside Oxford, scans revealed multiple fractures to his ribs and he was kept in for observation.His condition  deteriorated and it was later discovered that he had suffered a broken vertebrae and a stroke.James was then rushed to a specialist unit at St George’s Hospital in South London where his family were told that he had suffered extensive brain damage. He died the next day. Coroner Darren Salter recorded a conclusion of accidental death.ExpansionJames steered Chancellors through a period of significant expansion and at the time of his death was a director of three other estate agents controlled by Chancellors including Anscombe and Ringland, Bonsor Pennington and Russell as well as Baldwin & Bright.He was also an active member of the RICS and during the late noughties was interviewed by its website alongside Sarah Beeny about the spread of online agents. His son, Robert Scott-Lee, is Managing Director of Chancellors Group.james scott-lee inquest robert scott lee Chancellors Group death March 28, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Lincoln’s dimensions

first_imgThe friendship between President Drew Faust and “Lincoln” screenwriter Tony Kushner dates to the spring of 2008, when Kushner came to campus to deliver the annual Tanner Lectures on Human Values.“I remember a wonderful dinner where we talked about Lincoln the whole time,” Faust, a renowned Civil War historian, said Thursday. “I think the other people at the table thought, ‘What is going on? Could they please be a little more polite?’”The two Lincoln enthusiasts sat down again, at the Brattle Theatre, for a conversation about the beloved and mysterious president, following a Harvard-sponsored screening of Kushner and director Steven Spielberg’s new biopic. (This time, there were no dinner guests to offend.)When he first met Faust, Kushner recalled, he was already more than a year into the difficult process of adapting a massive Lincoln biography (Doris Kearns Goodwin’s “Team of Rivals”) for the big screen. By the winter of 2007, he had told director Steven Spielberg — also his collaborator on 2005’s “Munich” — that he might have to give up. Then the writers’ strike hit Hollywood.“I had to stop working on [the script], which was exactly what I needed to do,” Kushner said. “I just put it away and freaked out about the Tanner Lectures instead.”After deciding to narrow his focus to the last four months of Lincoln’s life, Kushner presented Spielberg with a 500-page doorstop (the typical feature-length screenplay, by contrast, clocks in at 100 to 120 pages). To Kushner’s surprise, Spielberg liked the draft’s first act: the less action-packed story of the passage of the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, through Congress.“The idea of making a movie about the House of Representatives is really insane,” Kushner said to laughs. “There is no organ of government in the history of the world less popular than the House of Representatives.”Spielberg had his doubts as well.“The whole movie was just going to be a lot of guys talking, and he said, ‘I have no idea how to film that,’” Kushner said. “What I love about Steven is he still wants to scare himself and do things that nobody knows how to do, and I think that’s the mark of a true artist.”Ultimately, the film intimately details Lincoln’s struggle: Does he end the war as expeditiously as possible, as his advisers and his fraught wife, Mary (Sally Field), are urging, or does he hold out for the passage of the amendment, which will surely lose traction as soon as peace is achieved?The movie trades the sweep of battlefields and Southern plantation life for the cramped quarters of Lincoln’s cabinet and the chambers of squabbling lawmakers.“We were telling the story of a bunch of white guys … who for the most part had no direct experience of slavery,” Kushner said of the Northern congressmen who fought to end slavery. “We didn’t want to do a god’s-eye view of showing the audience what these people didn’t know. Part of the astonishing political miracle of the passing of the 13th Amendment is that it was done by people who in certain ways didn’t even know what they were doing. They had a rough sense of where the country needed to go and did the right thing.”Then there was the challenge of capturing Lincoln the man — an enormous one, not just for his historical significance and mythic stature in American life, but for his irreconcilable, mysterious personality. In his time, Kushner said, the president was adored and admired, considered an empathetic leader and first-rate listener. At the same time, those closest to him also found him cold, removed, and manipulative.“The wonderful thing about being a playwright or a screenwriter is that you only have to partially do it,” Kushner said. “You create the opportunity for a really great actor to step in and do the rest.” (In this case, he added, he was lucky to have Daniel Day-Lewis in the role: “There’s something metaphysical about him,” Kushner said.)Kushner recalled reading an account of Lincoln taking Tad, his youngest, and favorite, child, into the battlefield at Richmond on his son’s 12th birthday, over the warnings of his generals.“Lincoln’s response was, ‘I can’t leave him behind; it would break his heart’ — which is kind of touching and also nuts,” said Kushner, who faithfully portrayed Tad (Gulliver McGrath) in the film as a rambunctious hellion given free rein over the White House and his father’s attentions. “The way that he raised Tad, just letting him do his own thing, is both lovely and also severely neglectful.”In recent decades, the “great man” theory of history has faced well-deserved criticism from historians, said Faust. In a time when academics concern themselves more with broad social forces than presidents and generals, a movie like “Lincoln” — in addition to being a “tribute to compromise” — can serve as a reminder that in a few extraordinary cases, visionaries like Lincoln really have changed the world and shaped the historical record.“I always felt Lincoln was the complete counterweight to any denial that an individual can make a difference,” she said.last_img read more

Laurie Anderson to present Norton Lectures

first_imgThe Charles Eliot Norton Professorship in Poetry presents Harvard’s preeminent lecture series in the arts and humanities called the Norton Lectures.These lectures recognize individuals of extraordinary talent who, in addition to their particular expertise, have the gift of wide dissemination and wise expression.The next Norton Lectures, in the Spring and Fall of 2021, will be given by Laurie Anderson.Anderson is known as an avant-garde artist, composer, musician, and film director. She is also considered a pioneer in electronic music and has invented several devices used in her recordings and performance art shows.The term “poetry” is interpreted in the broadest sense to encompass all poetic expression in language, music, or the fine arts; past Norton Professors have included T.S. Eliot, Jorge Luis Borges, Leonard Bernstein, Czeslaw Milosz, John Cage, and Nadine Gordimer.The 2009-10 Norton Lectures, the first organized under the auspices of the Mahindra Center, were given by Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk. Since then the Center has hosted William Kentridge, Herbie Hancock, Toni Morrison, Frederick Wiseman, Wim Wenders, and Agnès Varda. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Compost Compact.

first_imgWith help from University of Georgia experts, Georgia farmersthink they may have found a simple replacement for a chemicalthey hoped they’d never lose.Farmers would keep on using methyl bromide to control soil-bornediseases of vegetable crops if they could. But they can’t. Nowdefined as a chemical that depletes the ozone layer, methyl bromidewill be phased out by 2005, a government ruling that worries farmers.Replacing Methyl Bromide”Methyl bromide is very important to us,” said BillBrim, a Tifton, Ga., farmer. “Right now, we’re just tryingto figure out what we’re going to do when they take it away fromus.”In a joint effort with the UGA Coastal Plain Experiment Stationin Tifton, Ga., Brim and other farmers believe they’ve found asafer replacement: compost.A high-quality compost of the perfect mixture of yard waste,gin trash, culled vegetables and poultry litter, they say, couldhelp protect plants from disease. The compost could make fertilizerand irrigation more effective and help the environment, too.Because of the warm climate and long growing seasons in theSoutheast, vegetable crops are highly susceptible to disease.If vegetable growers can’t control those diseases, they can’tcontinue to farm, said David Langston, an Extension plant pathologist with the UGA College of Agriculturaland Environmental Sciences.Composting to Increase Beneficial OrganismsSoil in the Southeast, particularly in south Georgia, is extremelysandy. Nutrients can leach quickly through this soil.The sandy soils have little organic matter. And intensive tillingspeeds the breakdown of the little there is. “Most soil inthis area has less than 1 percent organic matter,” said KeithRucker, a Tift County extension agent.Soil contains microscopic pathogens that can damage plants,Rucker said. But it also contains beneficial organisms that cansuppress the pathogens. Research has shown that compost can increasethe number of beneficial organisms, improve the soil and suppressdiseases.”Compost increases the organic matter and nutrient-holdingcapacity of sandy soil,” said Darbie Granberry, a UGA ExtensionService vegetable horticulturist. “And it helps stretch the farmer’sfertilizer dollars.”Granberry said compost also extends the use of waste material,such as municipal waste and poultry litter, that would otherwisebe a burden on the environment.Two years ago, Brim and other farmers around Tifton, Ga., becameinterested in the benefits of applying compost to vegetables grownon plastic-film mulch. They can now produce as much as 8,000 tonsof compost annually, at a cost of $30 per ton.On-Farm Research PlotsBrim allocated part of his land to create research plots. CAESscientists will collect data from these plots and help in furtherstudies to find economical ways farmers can manage to their crops.Early data shows that transplants grown in greenhouses withcompost tend to be larger and more robust. By using compost, Brimsaid he has reduced irrigation by as much as 30 percent and increasedthe fertility of his soil.With help from UGA, Brim applied for a Southern Region SustainableAgriculture Research Education (SARE) grant to fund the researchon the farm.The federal grant allows farmers to develop their ideas intoviable practices and technologies with the help of CAES faculty. Information from the research is then shared with other farmers.”It’s an opportunity for researchers and extension peopleto work with the farmer,” Granberry said, “and to helpsolve a particular problem he has on the farm.””We’ve worked really close with the researchers and theextension office with this,” Brim said. “Research isthe most important thing that can happen to agriculture rightnow. We’re just trying to find a way to keep a positive cash flow.”A field day Oct. 24 will showcase the on-farm plots. For moreinformation, call the Tift County Extension Service office at(229) 391-7980.
