I was fascinated by the multiplicity of the functional space used by simple demarcations, into a kitchenette, study and rooms. Translating this experience into a spatial expression, we derived an open-space concept to define the internal layout. The concept also brings out an underlying vernacular essence, implemented by prevalence of traditional methods like central courtyards. The central courtyards are elemental references inferred from ‘Thottimane’ or ‘Tank Houses’.

Not only focused as the core concentration, the courtyard also doubly functions as a storm water catchment. Delving into a limited palette of materials we have characterised the shell with ‘Burnstone’. The walls are secured with stone slabs spanning 14ft in height, 2ft in width and 4” thick.

Crafted by local artisans, the strong straight lines of stone and timber emerge into a homogeneity that harmonises with the surroundings. Project gallerySee allShow lessFocal Point Community Campus Proposal / HDR ArchitectureUnbuilt ProjectNYC’s Union Square in 1828Misc Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/336984/bapagrama-stone-house-pragrup Clipboard ArchDaily India ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/336984/bapagrama-stone-house-pragrup Clipboard Houseslast_img read more

Ruling party militants demonstrate against opposition press journalists

The latter assembled a group of between 1,000 and 3,000 militant members of the ruling party (the United Democratic Front – UDF) on 20 May 2002 in front of the publishing firm Blantyre Newspaper Limited, which publishes two pro-opposition newspapers, the Daily Times, and the Malawi News weekly. The President’s advisor incited the crowd to threaten two journalists, Mabvuto Banda and Akimu Kaingana, who had written articles that were published which opposed President Bakili Muluzi’s candidacy for a third presidential term in 2004. According to the Malawi Constitution, the Head of State cannot serve more than two terms.”This action is totally irresponsible on the part of the presidential advisor who, logically, should be serving as the guarantor of public safety. The demonstration might have had very adverse consequences for the journalists. One of the targeted journalists later told Reporters without Borders, that he “will now be living in fear for his life,” stated Robert Ménard, the organization’s General Secretary. Reporters without Borders called upon the Malawi President to issue a public apology and to promise that such attacks on freedom of the press by militant members of his party will never occur again.On the day of the demonstration, all of the journalists with the Blantyre Newspaper Limited shut themselves up in their offices until the crowd dispersed, happily without any serious incident. One employee, however, was assaulted while trying to write down the licence plate numbers of the demonstrators’ vehicles. In addition, Reporters without Borders reminded the President that, in November 2001, the Daily Times reported that the UDF had allegedly composed a list of journalists who “are discrediting the party.” According to the same newspaper, UDF was said to have used members of its Young Democrats league to assault these journalists. This list is also said to include the names of reporters working with the Daily Times, the Nation and the BBC. RSF_en May 24, 2019 Find out more News MalawiAfrica Newslast_img read more

Mubarak’s departure must usher in new era for civil liberties

Reporters Without Borders welcomes the news with satisfaction and caution, after two weeks of violent harassment of both the national and international media.“This symbolic first step must be followed through all the way to the creation of a real democracy in which journalists and netizens are no longer afraid to express their views, in which diversity of ideas and opinions no longer entails any risk of imprisonment, and in which the right to receive and impart news and information is truly respected,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said.Mubarak surrendered power to the armed forces supreme council. “We will not forget the attitude of the military, which fortunately refrained from crushing the popular uprising,” Julliard added. “Before transferring power to a civilian government after free and transparent elections, the armed forces must help to ensure the profound changes demanded by Egyptian society, including guarantees for media pluralism.”Photo: AFP EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News Follow the news on Egypt News RSF_en center_img February 11, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mubarak’s departure must usher in new era for civil liberties January 22, 2021 Find out more February 6, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution February 1, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News to go furtherlast_img read more

Ithaca Farmers Market returns to Steamboat Landing this weekend

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. — In just a few days, the Ithaca Farmers Market will be bustling again on Steamboat Landing with vendors selling produce, handcrafted goods, and delicious food. The market officially kicks off its outdoor season Saturday, April 6.With increasing visitors and several waterfront development projects happening around Steamboat Landing, the market has announced it has some exciting updates of its own on the horizon — firstly, tuning up parking. During peak season, up to 8,000 people attend the market on an average weekend. Despite the traffic, the pavilion hasn’t been updated in quite a while. Silk Oak stall. Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice Silk Oak stall. Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca VoiceMarket Manager Becca Rimmel said updating the parking lot is their first priority. The lot in its current state wasn’t designed to handle the amount of traffic the market sees on a typical weekend. Plans for the lot include updating the design and installing a permanent surface that would allow for easier access by cars, buses, shuttle services, pedestrians, and others.“We’re hoping that we can make our parking lot so it’s easier for us to maintain, but also so that it’s more accessible and easier to navigate for folks,” said Rimmel. “We’re hoping to install some pickup and drop off areas, as well as reorientate the parking lot so people can see where they’re going.”Rimmel said she hopes the updates will make it more accessible for people with lower mobility to visit the market, as well as make it easier to quickly pick up groceries.Tracking Tompkins Development: Dive into the interactive project map Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: Rae Harris is an intern at the Ithaca Voice and a staff writer for Buzzsaw Magazine. She will be graduating from Ithaca College with a B.A. in journalism and a minor in sociology in May 2019. Contact her… More by Rae Harris If all goes well with the parking lot, the market is considering to re-envision the actual pavilion to provide more support for vendors and community members. The market was built and updated by vendors, Rimmel said, and they will continue to have a large part in the design process to preserve the character of the market that Ithacans know and love. Community members will also have opportunities to participate. “I think a lot of customers don’t realize that our market is a cooperative, so anything that has changed here over the years has really been a project of the vendors that are selling here,” said Rimmel. Possible future updates to the pavilion include winterization, expansion, and improved event space, a news release from the Ithaca Farmers Market said.Additionally, services to support vendors and community members have been proposed such as additional business incubation services, a commercial kitchen, community educational activities, increased food access for vulnerable communities and more.File photo of 2018 market. Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice File photo of 2018 market. Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca VoiceRimmel said she thinks the market has a fantastic season ahead.“We have an amazing diversity of farmers, artisans, and chefs here. I’d say if folks are interested in coming out this weekend or next, we’ll have local musicians, as usual, and then we’ll have our old favorite vendors as well and some really fantastic new vendors,” said Rimel.So far, the weather looks good for Saturday. The National Weather Service is predicting temperatures will be in the mid-50s and partly sunny.The Saturday market will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, at Steamboat Landing at 545 Third St., and the Sunday market will start on May 5. The Dewitt Park market will begin April 30 and the East Hill Plaza market begins May 1. For more information visit www.ithacamarket.com.

Police seek public’s help identifying man who pretended to be ride-share driver, robbed passenger

first_imgMontgomery County Department of Police(BETHESDA, Md.) — Police in Maryland have released surveillance footage in hopes that the public will help them identify a man seen on video attempting to steal a woman’s purse after pretending to be a ride-share driver.It was around 4:46 a.m. on March 30 when the victim, who was returning from a night out, called a ride-sharing service to get her back home, according to the Montgomery County Department of Police. The man seen in footage released by police Tuesday arrived to the woman’s location and the woman, believing that he was her ride-share driver, got into his car, police said.After the man drove her home to Bethesda, Maryland, he then “demanded” to be paid, officials said. The woman told the driver that she’d already paid him via the ride-share app and that she was not paying him additional money, according to police.In the video, the man wearing a dark hoodie, dark jeans and dark shoes can be seen walking up and talking to the woman as she’s entering her building with a key. “I panicked because my 24/7 concierge was not there, and there was no one outside, there was no one in the lobby,” the woman, who spoke to ABC News on the condition of not being named, said. “So I was pretty scared. He proceeded to tell me that I owed him money. I said you can call the police on me but you need to get away, you need to stop.”“The suspect followed the victim into her apartment building and then followed her into an elevator,” police said in a statement posted with surveillance video on its YouTube page. “While in the elevator, the suspect unsuccessfully attempted to steal the victim’s purse.”Footage from cameras inside the elevator captured the man showing the woman his cellphone repeatedly before finally trying to grab her purse from her. The woman holds on to her purse as she exits the elevator with the suspect still following her and gesturing toward his cellphone.Though the video footage ended in the elevator, police said the man entered the woman’s apartment and “stole property” before leaving. “I beat myself up everyday,” the woman told ABC News. “Why didn’t I scream, why didn’t I do this? Why didn’t I do that? But maybe in the end it was actually to my benefit, which is why he didn’t hurt me.”She said the man stole her cellphone so she was unable to check initially if he worked for a ride-share, but once she got a new phone and checked her history, she saw she never confirmed her request for a car.“Further investigation by detectives determined that the suspect did not work for any ride-sharing companies,” police said in a statement. Police urged the public to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5100 if they had any information about the suspect seen in the surveillance footage or the robbery.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
