The site 15m wide by 25m deep is located in Campeche Street, inside Colonia Condesa.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe project is comprised of four housing units overlapping each other, two of them with the public areas to the street and the other two to the rear of the property.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe houses try to break the sense of depth in the site through courtyards and terraces in the front, middle and back of the property, to which all the spaces of the houses live; in this way each of them has an immediate extension to an outer space.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaAll houses are resolved in three levels and a basement. Access from the street is through the parking lot where a couple of corridors leading to the stairs take you to the access courtyards of each of the houses. From there you enter the living room space where double-height kitchen and terraces overlap in the transverse width of the property to achieve 7 meters per dwelling. At higher levels the bedrooms are developed -in widths of 3-meters- living toward the front and rear of the property, crossing the central courtyard by glass bridges which look into a bamboo garden.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe facade is solved by an extruded white concrete surface which is cut and drilled according to the needs of each of the spaces, looking to achieve independence and randomness into the houses and emphasizing the depth achieved by the front terraces.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’Towards Green Buildings/Architecture for UAE?’ WorkshopArticlesThe Reyner Banham Symposium: ‘On Error’ArticlesProject locationAddress:Colonia Condesa, Cuauhtémoc, 06140 Mexico City, D.F., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Its tropical-humid temperature oscillates between 22 – 26 degrees Celsius. It’s located in the northern section of the Ecuadorian coast, a region that is part of the Pacific fire belt and it’s characterized by the concentration of some of the most important subduction zones in the world, which causes intense seismic activity.Save this picture!© Jag StudioIn a 17 year period, Bahía de Caráquez registered two earthquakes of magnitude higher than 7 degrees; cataclysms that ended up demolishing more than 60% of the city. After the natural phenomenon of April 16th, 2016, hundreds of people were affected by the 7.8 earthquake that struck the north coast of Ecuador, including Cristina López de Guillem. Cristina was already 79 years old and faced, perhaps, the most tough situation known to man: the problem of housing, the right of the few.Save this picture!AxonometricCristina lost her home and everything that it represented: this house was the center of her housing and commercial activities. Her economic income was based from the rent and the profits from the sale of clothing (house-commerce). She spent two years in Guayaquil, waiting to capitalize to start the adventure that awaited the process, an adventure that began with a very highlighted social-family problem. Her house-commerce property was a shared asset with his nephew. Both owners had different demands regarding the new interventions. After a long process of negotiation proposals, it was resolved to divide the irregular terrain into two portions of the same footage in the Ground Floor, and equal dimension in the façade, sharing a common staircase.Save this picture!© Jag StudioHousing morphology:With the blank canvas already defined, we are faced with a new terrain of form in form of -C-, with a front of 5.60m and 2.80m in its narrowest part. This new terrain maintains the same conditions as the general ground: backing on three sides, a single façade, heights determined by the municipality of the county and a non-existent language manual.Cristina has 46m2 per floor (two floors), which forces us to make decisions. The project was divided into two independent housing units, being the Ground Floor for the primary user and the Upper Floor to supplant the economic income for rent, lost in the earthquake. Both proposals are unipersonal, spaces to provide housing for a single person.Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Lower PlanProgram:Within each independent unit were located: Master Room, Master WC, Social WC, Kitchen, Dining Bar and Social Room. The open kitchen was worked as the pivot of each unit, placing it longitudinally in the narrowest part of each floor. A dining room bar was generated, which serves as an auxiliary to its small social room. On the ground floor, in particular, a secondary space was created within the only bedroom, as an emergent solution to the housing needs, which can serve as temporary (family) or permanent accommodation (assistance).Save this picture!© Jag StudioSave this picture!Second Floor PlanInterest in the materials that make up the built environment:As a main requirement, and an important part of the dissolution of the land, Cristina, as post-earthquake posture, wanted to avoid reinforced concrete, glass, and block masonry in its majority. The architectural project responds in a very strategic fashion to this situation: -Natural disasters do not exist, there are natural phenomena. Disasters are caused by man-The resulting project is the integration of many overlapping variables as a starting point; an economically viable construction, accessible to those who, at almost 80 years old, try to build, from 0, their home.Save this picture!© Jag StudioThe initiative started from a process of physical and social development through theproposal of materials. The Caja de Luz for its composition, manifests urban vernacular traditions, using materials usually associated with underdevelopment, being contextually conscious, expressing the correspondence between the appearance and structural nature of the project.It becomes a means of local social transformation. To this purpose, a light and flexible arrangement of structural wood was implemented, combining Moral, Mangle, Asta and Maria, under metal plates used as a fastening system, and wooden slab with laurel planks and chopped cane – plastered as masonry. Being a construction proposed in wood, we seek to explore this material from its structural aspect, insulating, light and easy to build.Save this picture!© Jag StudioIn tropical areas such as Manabí, wood and guadua are synonyms of freshness, ecology and savings. The guadua in its natural state exceeds 12 meters in height. It’s found in large numbers in the mountainous areas of the province.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe construction process involved a high percentage of materials from the area and 100% of local labor. The construction lasted almost 4 months, months in which new words had to be added to the dictionary and, above all, contrast the knowledge acquired with the local academicism to speed up the processes and their communication. We discovered that Columns are Struts, Beams are Bars, Joists are Strings, Deck Beams are Keys, and walls are Linings: A whole new alphabet.Save this picture!© Jag StudioExplore implications: Architectural object as molding and adaptation of its environment.The housing units are designed to correspond the climatic conditions of the area; this includes the circulation of natural air and the penetration of natural light, reinterpreting the traditional architecture of the area, highlighting its main elements.The opening of its single façade, fragmented by an exterior gallery, facing a wide street, allows us to incorporate the natural and built environment to the houses. To this end, it was worked to be used as a buffer zone that promotes, under safety regulations, the relationship between the interior and the exterior with the main street of the city.Save this picture!© Jag StudioIt was created then, in its single facade, a dynamic and permeable, which promotes the entry of wind and light into its interior spaces; through an ornamental wall with traditional blocks on the ground floor, which works as a barrier and separates the interior with the exterior gallery, and re-interprets a new architectural form. And with the intention of promoting lightness, in the upper floor we worked with polycarbonate, a lightweight, non-sharp plastic material, divided into modulated panels. A screen was created that allows the diffusion of light in both directions.The polycarbonate, structure and wooden floors carry a message much deeper than the lightness and light permeability, they constitute a plastic reference that represents a form of relationship with its urban environment through an invitation embodied in the material itself, a way to generate community.Project gallerySee allShow lessStudio Gang Reveals Twisting High-Rise MIRA Tower for San FranciscoArchitecture NewsGood Taste and the Transformation of McDonald’sArticles Share Projects Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador CopyAbout this officeJuan Alberto AndradeOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBahia de CaraquezEcuadorPublished on August 21, 2018Cite: “Caja de Luz / Juan Alberto Andrade” [La Caja de Luz / Juan Alberto Andrade] 21 Aug 2018.

His roles have included founding board member, Chair of Governance Committee and Company Secretary of the Aylesbury Vale Community Trust, CEO of The London Irish Centre, and International Operations Director of The Climate Group. Having previously created a number of performance systems in large organisations, he has now turned his focus to the charity sector.The Charity Excellence Framework platform has been designed to be affordable and low workload. It supports charities with their governance and compliance by providing their boards and CEOs with the means to assess and manage their performance across a number of key areas, as well as work out where they need to make improvements. It does this by creating a unique model for each nonprofit, based on its size, location, role and activities, with eight diagnostic questionnaires and reporting via a dashboard that tracks more than 20 key metrics. Reports are optimised for the nonprofit’s specific priorities and results are linked individually to resources from across the web.Charity Excellence Framework dashboardThe web-based platform also helps with compliance, by using nearly 50 metrics to track a range of issues including safeguarding, harassment and whistleblowing.McLintock said:“I’ve been a passionate volunteer for 40 years and wanted to do something to help address the huge challenges we face. I’d previously built systems for large organisations, so I’ve spent two years and my savings building one for the voluntary sector that’s easy to use, low workload and low cost, but equally capable. Revenue from it will fund even more ambitious plans.”Phase one of the launch takes place this month, with subsequent phases to be funded from revenue and to include creating a charity sector data store, online stakeholder engagement linked to the system and a Fit-to-Practice qualification for CEOs. Charities interested in participating in the pilot will be able to access the platform for free. Registration for this is via the Charity Excellence Framework site.

Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Removing Pesticide Ingredients from The Market EPA Removing Pesticide Ingredients from The Market By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 21, 2016 The Environmental Protection Agency is removing 72 inert ingredients from the list of ingredients approved for use in pesticides. Any manufacturers who want to use those ingredients in the future will need to first demonstrate their safety to the EPA, either through studies or other information. The EPA will then decide whether or not to approve the request. EPA is taking this action in response to a petition filed by the Center for Environmental Health, Beyond Pesticides, and others. The groups initially asked the EPA to disclose up to 371 inert ingredients in pesticides. In response, the EPA then said it will evaluate the risks found in each inert ingredient and make changes as appropriate.Pesticide ingredients that directly control weeds or insects are called active ingredients. Those that do not directly affect pests are called inert ingredients. Many of the 72 inert ingredients were included on the original list of 371.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for December 22, 2016Next articleAg Secretary Search Continues to Turn Up Surprises Hoosier Ag Today
