Project description by the architects.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiLocated in “La Isla”, a small stretch of strong impact on Punta Carretas residential neighborhood (Montevideo, Uruguay), where traditional houses of the early twentieth century without setbacks coexist with more recent houses setback from the sidewalk.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe house was built on the almost ruin of an old house without setbacks, on a site 140 m2. We kept a trace of the old building using the facade wall, so as to create continuity with the two boundaries. But much of the indoor environments are removed from the wall, taking advantage of the northern orientation facing the longer side of the property.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe facade sets a screen for privacy, designed on the ground floor with the rest of the original wall and on the upper level with a deciduous plant attached to a wire mesh, which generates seasonally changing conditions, and a variable image also according to the seasons and blooms.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe house was conceived as the total volume of “architecturally treated air”, with intertwined interior and exterior instances, with good orientation and oblique views. The project articulates certain traditional urban qualities of the neighborhood, with its status as contemporary piece.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe meager size of the property is mitigated through continuous and interconnected spaces with a certain programmatic ambiguity: living, dining-kitchen, barbecue, garage, deck and courtyards, corridor to deck and study and bathroom, etc..Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiIt has two bedrooms a study and playroom. According to the client’s expectations, we worked the articulation of the relations between the grill and barbecue space, with the kitchen-dining room, the living room and play room.

At a bend in the road, the crew’s vehicle was forced to stop by another car whose driver briefly waved a pistol and pointed it at the journalists before putting it down and driving off. The crew filmed in the incident.The TV station said in a statement it had received other threats, including a warning that “we won’t be responsible for the lives of the journalists and cameramen” if they reported on the trial. Reporters Without Borders welcomes the news of the arrest in de Santa Tecla yesterday of Marco Antonio Landaverde, suspected to have threatened a crew from the television station Canal 12 with a gun. Questioned with his wife in a hotel on the outskirts of the city, he denied the allegation, saying he was the only one to have been threatened.“The authorities took the threats against Canal 12 seriously and we welcome the quick outcome to the investigation,” the media freedom organization said. “It is important that this incident motivates both the government and media managements to improve the protection of journalists who are exposed to serious risks in their work.” ________________23.01.13 – Car driver waves gun at TV crew reporting on shooting trialReporters Without Borders joins the Association of Salvadoran Journalists APES in calling for an investigation into a death threat made in the street and in broad daylight yesterday against a crew from the television station Canal 12 in Santa Tecla, west of the capital San Salvador.“The efforts by the Salvadoran authorities concerning journalists’ safety must be further strengthened in the light of the threats received by the Canal 12 team of reporters. Together with APES, we call for the establishment of genuine safeguards to protect journalists at risk because of their work and the sectors they cover. “This applies not only to the relevant police and judicial authorities but also to the managements of media organizations.

Al Dustour editor sentenced to six months in prison

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns the six-month prison sentence that a criminal court in the Cairo district of Bulak Abu Al-Ala imposed on 26 March on Ibrahim Issa, the editor of the weekly Al Dustour. Although courts previously dismissed eight other similar complaints against him, Issa was finally convicted under articles 171 and 188 of the criminal code of publishing false information “liable to harm the general interest and the country’s stability.” He was also fined 200 pounds (30 euros).“The authorities are continuing the campaign of intimidation against independent journalists that began at the start of 2007,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Comments about the necessary limits on press freedom made by the judge the day after passing sentence are indicative of the judiciary’s general attitude towards the media.”The case dates back to 5 September 2007, when a member of the ruling National Democratic Party brought a complaint about articles referring to rumours about President Hosni Mubarak’s health. Issa’s lawyer told Reporters Without Borders he thought the conviction was unjustified as eight other complaints brought by pro-government lawyers against Issa in 2007 for the same reasons were dismissed on the grounds that there was “no direct, family link between the plaintiffs and the president.” He added that he intended to appeal.A case involving Issa and the editors of three other weeklies – Adel Hammouda of Al-Fagr, Wael Al-Abrashi of Sawt Al-Umma and Abdel-Halim Qandil of Karama – is meanwhile due to be heard by an appeal court on 5 April. A criminal court in the Cairo district of Al-Aguza sentenced them on 13 September 2007 to a year of forced labour and fines of 20,000 pounds (2,600 euros) for publishing false information “liable to harm the general interest and the country’s stability.” March 28, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Al Dustour editor sentenced to six months in prison RSF_en Organisation EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News January 22, 2021 Find out more February 1, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News to go further News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Egypt Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution Receive email alerts February 6, 2021 Find out more Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prisonlast_img read more

Prince William opens new China Centre building at St Hugh’s

first_imgThe Duke of Cambridge was at St Hugh’s College this afternoon to open a new £21m China Centre library, hours after Kensington Palace announced that the Duchess is expecting their second child.The Duchess was due to join her husband in the traditional Chinese ribbon cutting ceremony, but had to withdraw as a result of severe morning sickness.Prince William arrived at the college around 1.30pm, greeted by a large crowd that had started gathering an hour before.The Duke abated the curiosity and concerns of well-wishers with a few words about his pregnant wife, explaining, “she is feeling ok. It has been a tricky few weeks or so but we basically are thrilled. It is great news. It is early days, we are hoping things settle down and she is feeling better.”[mm-hide-text]%%IMG%%10163%%[/mm-hide-text]After meeting benefactors and friends and supporters of the college, he was given a tour of the new library during which he was shown the Selden Map of China. Recognised as the earliest map to show shipping routes linking Ming-era China to markets in South Asia and beyond, it underwent major conservation work in 2008 and was exhibited in China earlier this year.A plaque was then unveiled, which bore the name of the Duke and Duchess, despite the absence of the latter.[mm-hide-text]%%IMG%%10160%%[/mm-hide-text]Prince William then cut the ribbon in a traditional Chinese ceremony, before departing just after 4pm.The Dickson Poon University of Oxford China Centre Building – the library’s full title – cost a total of £21m, and was named after Hong Kong philanthropist Mr Dickson Poon CBE, who donated £10m towards the cost of the building.A statement on the College website explains, “This building will, for the first time, bring together academics drawn from across a range of disciplines, who have in common research and teaching interests related to China.“The building will also provide 63 en-suite student bedrooms, a 100 seat lecture theatre, dining area and a range of conference and seminar facilities.  It will also contain a dedicated library with study carrels and a reading room, which will provide a permanent home for books from the Bodleian Library’s China Collection.”[mm-hide-text]%%IMG%%10161%%[/mm-hide-text]St Hugh’s principal Dame Elish Angiolini announced, “St Hugh’s is extremely proud to have raised £20 million for this new development, and we are confident that through continued fundraising we will soon have the total amount needed. We are immensely grateful to our donors for helping us to provide such attractive, modern facilities for the students, Fellows and wider community at St Hugh’s.”Media attention was understandably far greater than anticipated following the announcement of the royal baby. The college’s Head of Communications and Marketing, Kate Pritchard, tweeted, “A pleasure to meet HRH The Duke of Cambridge today @StHughsCollege #Oxford. He spent so much time speaking to staff, students and visitors.”last_img read more

Argentina President Wants Messi to Return Home

first_imgArgentina’s president Alberto Fernandez has advised Lionel Messi to return to his homeland and finish his career at his former youth team club Newell’s Old Boys.Messi,33, shocked the world of football last week by informing Barcelona of his intentions to move on this summer following a turbulent season at the Nou Camp.He has been most strongly linked with a move to Manchester City, where he would link up with his previous manager Pep Guardiola again. And speaking on Argentinean TV channel C5N, Fernandez said: “You are in our hearts and we have never seen you play in our country.“Give us the pleasure of ending your career with Newell’s Old Boys, your club.”And on who he admires between Diego Maradona and Messi Fernandez admitted he admired the 1986 World Cup winner.He stated that his preference for the Napoli icon is due to the fact he graduated from the team he supports, Argentinos Junior.“The great merit of Maradona is that he played alone against the world,” Fernandez added. “I’ve never seen a player like Maradona.“I admire him deeply – more than Messi, to be honest, because he comes from the Argentinos’ youth. He was a kind of gladiator, with incredible strength.”Newell’s fans held a spectacular parade on the streets of Rosario on Thursday in the hope of showing Messi how much it would mean for them for him to move to the club.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
