This 5 story apartment building is located in the Dorobanţi section of Bucharest, Romania.. This area became in recent years a fashionable district, full of cafes and upper scale boutiques, and a number of high end apartment buildings were built next to the existing residential structures that define the traditional urban fabric.Save this picture!© Andrei MărgulescuThe apartment building presented here, is an insertion in this rather dense residential fabric, consisting in 4 and 5 levels buildings, raised mostly in the 50’s and 60’s.Save this picture!© Andrei MărgulescuThe building, confined to the zoning envelope, is configured as a linear structure, having the narrow northern façade, fronting the G. Călinescu Street, while the southern end of the building is facing the dead ended Aricescu Street. The rest of the building constitutes a “book end” to the row of double residential lots on the East and is almost hidden behind the buildings that line up along the Beller Street, the main thoroughfare in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Andrei MărgulescuFacing the back of close surrounding structures, the building closes into itself by limiting the size and number of its widows on its long western and eastern facades. While reducing the size of the openings, the design allows each apartment to have exposures on two elevations, and this way to be able to receive plenty of daylight. The two core configuration service two one bedroom apartments each per floor and facilitate the presence of two exterior walls in each living room. The openings to two different exposures will permit the owners to experience the sunlight’s daily progression in each apartment. The penthouse floor’s two apartments are surrounded by a wrap around terrace. On the ground floor, a linear lobby constitutes a spine that allows entries on both ends, at G. Călinescu and Aricescu Streets. The small courtyard set between the cores facilitates daylight penetration in the central section of the elongated ground floor lobby. A glass enclosed six cars garage, a shop and the ramp to the underground parking occupy the western end of the building’s footprint.Save this picture!Floors PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’Beyond Green! – Tall Buildings in a Sustainable Future’ SymposiumArticlesTehran Stock Exchange Competition Entry / EBA[M] + VMX ArchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Bucharest, RomaniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

(Photo by Dylan Guest.) Frank Valadez, a sophomore CRES major, believes it’s important for others to understand this, especially in today’s political climate.“African American and Latino people are largely portrayed as ‘thugs’ or ‘illegal aliens,’ and since this kind of framing of minorities is perpetuated by President Trump, we as a community should learn the historical importance and presence of these people in the United States.”During his talk, Ortiz read several passages of his novel to the crowd, but made sure not to reveal too much.“I can’t read the whole book or else you guys won’t buy it,” Ortiz jokingly said.Ortiz also had high praise for the TCU’s CRES Department.“Creating this study at TCU creates a ripple effect of allowing others to dream about educational possibilities and opens up partnerships between the university and other communities,” Ortiz said.Ethnic studies has become a gateway to education for colored students, working-class students, and first-generation college students, according to Ortiz.

This year, 27 of those incidents have occurred. Andrews said he does not believe the number of alcohol violations that have occurred so far this year is substantial or indicative of any trends.According to the TCU Annual Campus Security Report, there were 757 alcohol violations reported in 2018, 129 more violations than those reported in 2017. Andrews said the TCU Police Department works with Campus Life and Fraternity and Sorority Life to promote responsible behavior. “The TCU Alcohol and Drug Education Office does a lot of prevention work and is a great resource,” Andrews said. “We also work with TCU residential housing staff to help us identify alcohol-related issues before they get out of hand.”Located in the lower level of Samuelson Hall, the TCU Alcohol and Drug Education office is a resource that promotes healthy lifestyle choices for students. Photo courtesy of TCU Drug and Alcohol Education.The director of Housing and Residence Life, Craig Allen, also recognized the continuity of the high rate of violations.“We are seeing a similar number of incidents compared to previous years,” Allen said, “so things are about the same.”Allen said TCU has a multifaceted approach to attempting to decrease the number of alcohol violations that occur on campus, including educating students and providing alternative programs in residence halls that do not involve alcohol. “We do programs, bulletin boards and have many one-on-one conversations with students to try and help get students the information,” Allen said. Ultimately, however, if students violate university policies, their actions are documented and dealt with through the student conduct process, Allen said.Alcohol violations are given to students when they violate TCU’s alcohol policies. Kyle Kevorkian, the assistant hall director in Waits Hall, wrote in a text message he believes there could be a positive aspect of students receiving alcohol violations.“The punitive component [of alcohol violations] forces students to engage in material cost-benefit analyses to determine an appropriate course of action,” Kevorkian wrote. “I think that encouraging such decision making, particularly in the context of college development, is a virtuous feature within the system. Further, such a policy is certain to deter harmful alcohol-related activity in at least a handful of cases.” Linkedin Owen Roche Facebook What we’re reading: Trump fed up with media, Guyger sentenced to 10 years for murder Owen Rochehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/owen-roche/ Twitter Previous articleStudents, faculty protest police brutality following death of Atatiana JeffersonNext articleVolleyball looks to get back on track after dominating West Virginia Owen Roche RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin TCU Rhino Initiative Club gives voice to dwindling species Beer will be served in plastic cups, not cans.

Pasadena Street Piano Stolen?

first_imgtop box 3 Pasadena Street Piano Stolen? From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 | 2:52 pm Subscribe A street-side piano that Pasadena classical concert pianist Cindy Lam installed recently outside her studio for the public to play on and decorate went missing Wednesday morning and believed to have been stolen.Lam sent an urgent message to Pasadena Now to say the piano no longer on the street side when she came home past 11 a.m. Wednesday.“I’m heartbroken to tell you that I came home just now to discover that the piano has been stolen,” Lam wrote. “Maybe the person who took it didn’t know it was part of a kids’ art project?”The piano has been sitting on Lam’s driveway until she decided to put it out on the curb on Sunday. By Tuesday, it was officially installed as a street piano on Waverly Drive, right outside the Cindy Lam Piano Studio (CLPS).“This colorful piano, transformed into functional artwork, will live on the curb and be available to anyone who wants to play it,” Lam wrote in a press release last month as she was planning to put the piano on the curb. “The art project will serve to engage people to create and enjoy music in the moment, as well act as a common thread for people to share a connection, thus creating a sense of community through music.”Since the piano was on her driveway, residents along the artsy block between Fair Oaks and Pasadena Avenue have been dropping by to add their piece on the artwork. Local musicians and music students also became regular visitors.Tina Carter, a CLPS parent, said her three kids love to express themselves on the piano.“This street piano is a fun and exciting way for the kids to share their enthusiasm for piano with the Pasadena community. It means a lot to my kids to have their piano teacher enjoy time with them doing all sorts of different, amazing, and creative projects.”Neighbor Sandy Portaro, who owns the Athletic Garage nearby, was thrilled about the idea of installing the piano out on the curb.“This is a wonderful thing and a great addition to our block,” Portaro said. “We just created an urban wall mural in our parking lot, and having a street piano right across the street complements that perfectly. I love the melding of different forms of art that happens here — the making of music, moving to music — and now there is access for anybody who spontaneously wants to make a little music while walking by.”Lam was inspired by the pianos in and around the subway stations in urban spaces like New York City and Europe, and how they had the ability to bring strangers together who otherwise wouldn’t cross paths.“I’ve seen an opera singer spontaneously teach a random little boy how to play ‘Twinkle, Twinkle.’ This kid’s first lesson on the piano was completely unexpected and taught to him on the street by a stranger. How great is that?”Lam and her supporters are asking for help in finding their beloved piano. Anyone who has information about the whereabouts of the missing street piano can contact Cindy Lam by phone, (626) 416-9474, or by email, [email protected] Your email address will not be published.

Santos takes FID on $3.6bn Barossa offshore gas project in Australia

first_imgFirst gas from the project is expected to be drawn in the first half of 2025 The Barossa project is located in the Timor Sea, offshore Australia. (Credit: michaelmep from Pixabay) Australian oil and gas company Santos has taken a final investment decision (FID) on the $3.6bn Barossa project, located offshore Australia’s Northern Territory.The Barossa project will see the development of the Barossa gas and condensate field in the Timor Sea, 300km north of Darwin. The works under the project include mooring of a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel, drilling of subsea production wells along with the installation of associated subsea infrastructure and a new gas export pipeline.The pipeline will connect to the existing Bayu-Undan to Darwin LNG pipeline.Santos expects to draw the first gas from the Barossa project in the first half of 2025.Last week, Santos awarded a $4.6bn contract to BW Offshore for construction, connection, and operation of the FPSO.According to the Australian oil and gas company, the FID on the LNG supply project also enables the launch of a $600m investment in the Darwin LNG life extension and pipeline tie-in projects.The projects are expected to extend the life of the company’s operated Darwin LNG plant for nearly 20 years.Santos managing director and CEO Kevin Gallagher said: “Our strategy to grow around our five core asset hubs has not changed since 2016. As we enter this next growth phase, we will remain disciplined in managing our major project costs, consistent with our low-cost operating model.“As the economy re-emerges from the COVID-19 lockdowns, these job-creating and sustaining projects are critical for Australia, also unlocking new business opportunities and export income for the nation.“The Barossa and Darwin life extension projects are good for the economy and good for local jobs and business opportunities in the Northern Territory.”Gallagher added that the Barossa and the Darwin LNG life extension projects will generate 600 jobs during the construction stage. Besides, the projects will secure 350 roles for the next 20 years of production at the Darwin LNG plant.The FID taken on the Barossa project paves the way for the closing of the previously announced 25% stake sale by Santos in the Darwin LNG plant and Bayu-Undan gas field to SK E&S for $390m. The South Korea-based SK E&S is partnering Santos in the Barossa gas and condensate with a 37.5% stake.Japan-based JERA is set to join the duo in the project having signed a deal in April 2020 to acquire 12.5% stake from Santos.last_img read more
