Hovering over the shores of Lake Michigan, the Douglas House was built by Richard Meier in 1971-1973 for Jim and Jean Douglas. The house is gently placed on a steep slope over the water, almost as if it is floating amongst the trees. Save this picture!As Meier stated about the house, “So steep is the slope to the water that the house appears to have been dropped into the site, a machine-crafted object that has landed in a natural world. The dramatic dialogue between the whiteness of the house and the primary blues and greens of the water, trees, and sky allows the house not only to assert its own presence but to enhance, by contrast, the beauty of its natural environment as well.”Save this picture!Entry Floor PlanDue to its location, Meier layered four floors and anchored the house into the hill.  The entry is on the east side of the house facing the road, which Meier considers the “private” zone and is expanded by a roof-level bridge. Once inside the entry vestibule there is a continuation to a roof-deck, and the living room and kitchen are seen two stories below with the fire place in view across from the entry, typical in homes designed by Meier.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe “public” zone of the house, including the living room and dining room, faces Lake Michigan and gives the impression of a completely different place when compared to the deceiving one-story entry space. The living room is open to the surrounding landscape with three large floor-to-ceiling windows, which was heavily used on the western side of the house to take advantage of the view. It also receives sunlight through a skylight that further separates the public and private zones.Save this picture!The bedrooms were designed small and cabin-like, intimate for their private function. The layers of the floors are read on the exterior through these window mullions, and the interior public and private zones can also be determined depending on the number and sizes of the windows.Save this picture!West ElevationCirculation through the house is primarily horizontal with the open floor plans except for two staircases, one interior and one exterior, on the corners of the house. Their placement was intended in order to not interrupt the horizontal views towards the outdoors.Save this picture!As is typical of Meier buildings, the house is completely white made with reinforced concrete and glass except for two steel pipes that extend from the chimney up to the roof, framing views at the entry level. The white of the house allows it to stick out as a man-made object on the landscape during the changing colors of the seasons, which can be experienced inside through the large glass panels.Save this picture!These natural surroundings were also taken into consideration during the construction of the house where as few trees were removed as possible in order to leave the landscape in its most natural state while forcing the house to integrate with it.Save this picture!After a three year construction period, the Douglas House was completed. Meier furnished the home with furniture designed by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and himself, and when completed it needed no ornamentation other than the nature it was designed around. Meier’s work enabled the house to extend with the natural horizontals of the shoreline, the lake’s surface, and the horizon while following the pattern of the trees with vertical mullions, creating generous spacious continuity from interior to exterior.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessOlympic Museum Competition / ArchMediumArticlesPingPong Project / 4 of 7 ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of AIAWritten by Adelyn Perez Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/61276/ad-classics-douglas-house-richard-meier Clipboard Architects: Richard Meier & Partners Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Copy+ 11Houses•Harbor Springs, United States “COPY” CopyAbout this officeRichard Meier & PartnersOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesHarbor SpringsResidentialHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 28, 2010Cite: Adelyn Perez. “AD Classics: Douglas House / Richard Meier & Partners” 28 May 2010.

On our first visit to the site was remarkable the amount of native trees that were in the field. As a first request to our client we asked for a detailed topographic study of all the trees in the site. From the beginning we intended to respect all the trees. Once we had the study in our hands, we faced a notable challenge… the possibility of keep all the trees, at least all of the medium and large size, assumed significant complexity. After studying multiple alternatives with conventional layouts (U shape, L shape, in two or three volumes, etc…) we figured out that in all cases we would have to cut an important amount of treesSave this picture!© Tamara UribeFrom that point we decided to build a project of multiple small habitable rooms would be filtered through the vegetation in a manner that all the trees are respected. This led us to think that the concept of the house would be like a village in which one travels outside in a sinuous way through the trees to get from one building to another. Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe To make more evident the project posture, the rooms of the house are designed as parallelepipeds that have very strong and clear volumetric presence. As opposed, the outer trails and the inner circulation (roofed and closed with glass walls) melt with the sinuous, organic and seemingly complex framework that the trees generate. The house is then conceived as a “village” so as to reach every single space you have to travel in a trail across the trees… like on a village in the jungle.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeThe program consists in 3 bedrooms, game room, living room, dining room, kitchen, service area and an outer social area with pool. The social area works as a link between the service areas and the private zone. The bedrooms are grouped into a set of pieces in a way that safe inner playgrounds are generated for the children. We take advantage of the site areas that have no view of the golf course to locate the service and support areas. The distribution of the social and private areas allows to form an outer space rich in environment quality from which the visuals vanished to the depth of the golf course.Save this picture!Ground PlanEven with the notorious complexity and peculiar distribution on the floor plan, the house is presented to the context and the user as a simple building, without more pretentiousness but enjoy the life and the singular natural context.Project gallerySee allShow lessVincent Callebaut Proposes “Wooden Orchids” Green Shopping Center for ChinaAwarded CompetitionErik Møller Arkitekter to Modernize Alvar Aalto’s KunstenMisc Sharecenter_img “COPY” Year:  2012 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/509069/aldea-house-seijo-peon-arquitectos-y-asociados Clipboard 2012 “COPY” Mexico Houses Area:  346 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Dominicans, Haitians protest deportation

first_imgOn Saturday morning, Aug. 22, the organization “We are all Dominicans” held a protest at the Dominican Republic Consulate in New York City’s Times Square to demand “No deportations, here or there!”Some Haitians and progressive North Americans, as well as Dominican workers, participated in the protest.In 2013, a Dominican court moved to strip citizenship from hundreds of thousands of Dominicans of Haitian descent, covering those born in the Dominican Republic as far back as 1929. Since then, the government has instituted a staggered program of deportations, a few at a time. Racist vigilante groups, using intimidation and violence, have been “encouraging” more people to self-deport.Hundreds of thousands of Haitians who went to the DR more recently to do low-paid cane cutting and construction work are likewise under attack.“We are all Dominicans” has been active in the Dominican community in the United States in raising the issue of racism and keeping pressure on the government of the DR.The Coalition for Human Rights in the Dominican Republic, organized by Haitian militants in the U.S., had held a march from Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn to City Hall on Aug. 14. That is the anniversary of “Bois Caiman,” the clandestine meeting that touched off the Haitian Revolution in 1791.The Haitian march, which drew support from progressive Dominicans as well as North Americans, not only raised the issue of racism in the DR but also brought up the inadequate response of the Haitian government.On Aug. 17, thousands of Haitians demonstrated at the Haitian Embassy in Santo Domingo, the capital of the DR, to demand identification documents that the Dominican government requires for residency permits. They had paid a processing fee of $22 — a lot of money for a cane cutter or construction worker in the DR — but the embassy had failed to produce the papers.According to the Dominican Interior Ministry, only 7.2 percent of the foreign residents in the DR had been given residency permits, called carnets, as of the first week of August.The Unión de Trabajadores Cañeros de los Bateyes (UTC) called the demonstration at the Haitian Embassy, as well as an earlier one of 15,000 sugarcane cutters outside the Presidential Palace in Santo Domingo, to demand residency permits.The UTC is an independent labor organization founded by cane cutters from Haiti. (Haïti-Liberté, Aug. 19-25)Pressure is growing both in the DR and in Haiti to resolve this issue before it becomes a major catastrophe. The U.S. government obviously has a lot of influence over what happens in the DR, but has remained silent.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It goes on to state that COVID-19 was an unnecessary and preventable pandemic, but the actions, or lack thereof, of Chinese authorities has caused the suffering which is being experienced by people globally, including Missourians.”An appalling campaign of deceit, concealment, misfeasance, and inaction by Chinese authorities unleashed this pandemic. During the critical weeks of the initial outbreak, Chinese authorities deceived the public, suppressed crucial information, arrested whistleblowers, denied human-to-human transmission in the face of mounting evidence, destroyed critical medical research, permitted millions of people to be exposed to the virus, and even hoarded personal protective equipment—thus causing a global pandemic that was unnecessary and preventable.”Affixing blame on the Chinese Government for the enormous loss of human life, suffering and economic turmoil, the Complaint urges such authorities to be held accountable for the same. Filed by State Attorney General Eric Schmitt, the Complaint thus seeks compensation, for all direct and consequential damages, from the Chinese Government, the Communist Party of China, Wuhan Institute of Virology and Chinese Academy of Sciences.The State of Missouri goes on to claim that local medical authorities in China had identified the virus many weeks before the Government reported the same to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Submitting that this delay was deliberate, the Complaint goes on to assert that the outbreak of COVID-19 is a “direct result of a sinister campaign of malfeasance and deception carried out by” China.It is further alleged that, using its public relations machinery, a large scale cover-up campaign is now being run by China to avoid taking blame for this outbreak.”When their actions began to kill hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, Defendants sought to minimize the consequences, engaging in a coverup and misleading public relations campaign by censoring scientists, ordering the destruction and suppression of valuable research, and refusing cooperation with the global community, all in violation of international health standards.”Another serious contention raised in this Civil Action Suit is that China has been hoarding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to profit from the increasing worldwide demand for the same, while adversely impairing the ability of healthcare providers worldwide from effectively treating patients.Affixing responsibility for the losses and sufferings due to the COVID-19 pandemic on the Chinese Government, the State of Missouri has sought recovery of damages on four groundsPublic NuisanceAbnormally Dangerous ActivitiesBreach of Duty: Allowing Transmission of COVID-19Breach of Duty: Hoarding of PPEsThough this is the first time a State in the USA has decided to sue China, a class action suit had earlier been filed in Texas.

Defense team for Harvey Weinstein requests maximum of 5 years in prison for sex crimes convictions

first_imgDNY59/iStock(NEW YORK) — Harvey Weinstein should be sent to prison for no more than five years, defense attorneys said in a letter to the judge ahead of sentencing scheduled for Wednesday.The disgraced former Hollywood producer was convicted of two felony counts — criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape — for attacking former production assistant Mimi Haley in 2006 third-degree rape of aspiring actress Jessica Mann in 2013. He was acquitted of three additional counts — two counts of predatory sexual assault and one count of first-degree rape.The defense said Weinstein’s age, health and life of charity are among the factors that argue for a lesser sentence. Weinstein, 67, who was convicted on Feb. 24, was moved from Bellevue Hospital Center in New York to Rikers Island correctional facility last week after undergoing a procedure to insert a stent in his heart. He had been using a walker throughout the trial and was being held in a prison ward at Bellevue after complaining of chest pains.“As an individual with no criminal history having spent no time previously incarcerated, his health concerns, his age, and as famous as he is, a custodial sentence will no doubt prove much more difficult for Mr. Weinstein than most other inmates, which further counsels in favor of a sentence of five years’ imprisonment,” defense attorneys Damon Cheronis, Donna Rotunno and Arthur Aidala wrote in their letter to Judge James Burke.“With respect to deterrence, counsel will again note that Mr. Weinstein is a first-time offender,” the attorneys wrote.The sexual assault charge carries a maximum of 25 years in prison. He could receive up to four years in prison for the rape conviction.Prosecutors have said Weinstein deserves a “lengthy” prison sentence. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office did not recommend a specific sentence but said it is “totally appropriate” to show through the court’s sentence “that sexual assault, even if perpetrated upon an acquaintance or in a professional setting, is a serious offense worthy of a lengthy prison sentence,” according to a letter to the same judge filed by prosecutors last Friday.The DA’s submission details what the prosecutor’s office claims are several decades’ worth of alleged misconduct by Weinstein beyond what was prosecuted in court.The defense attorneys responded in their letter that those additional accusations by prosecutors, “many of which are not even sexual in nature (e.g. “abusive behavior in the workplace”) and the vast majority of which have nothing to do with [Mimi] Haley or Jessica Mann — in no way constitute relevant conduct.”The prosecution filing notes the complaining witnesses, Jessica Mann and Mimi Haley, will submit statements to the court.ABC News does not normally name victims of sexual assault, but both women have either publicly identified themselves or agreed to allow their names to be used.Following the verdict, Weinstein’s attorneys said in a statement they will be filing an appeal, claiming there were “extremely troubling issues” with the trial.While appealing his New York conviction, Weinstein will also be preparing to defend himself against four felony sexual assault charges filed earlier this year by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. In that case, Weinstein is charged with attacking two women in separate incidents over a two-day period in Feb. 2013. He has not yet entered a plea in that case. Weinstein claims any sexual encounters were consensual.If you or someone you know experienced sexual assault and is seeking resources, call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
