New Kyoto Town House / Alphaville Architects

first_img Text description provided by the architects. This is a residential house located on a narrow site in the centre of Kyoto, the old capital of Japan. The area is lined with traditional wooden townhouses. While inheriting the advantages of townhouses, we intended to overcome their drawbacks and create a comfortable and enjoyable space. The most characteristic feature of this house is the polyhedral form of the partition walls. They are not made by intuition but are based on logical concepts and perform multiple functions. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsFirst, the partition walls, normally extended in the vertical and horizontal directions, have multidimensionality and loosely connect the rooms on the three floors. The space thus created is one continuous room with dynamic nuances: it is simultaneously spacious and heterogeneous. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsSecond, the partition walls serve as reflectors of natural light. They softly reflect the natural light coming from both the north and south sides and bring it to the otherwise dark interior of the building. Finally, the partition walls blur the boundary between architecture and furniture, thus stimulating perception and behaviour. Melt into floors and ceilings, the plywood-finished walls offer enjoyable experiences of touching and passing. The house as a whole is a machine for living, like playground equipment. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsBecause of the landscape regulations and the physical context of the neighbourhood, we inherited the traditional form and composition of townhouses. But at the same time, this house overcome the negative aspects of townhouses. The wooden structure of townhouses cannot afford to have large openings on the short sides of the building as well as on floors. Consequently, the interior is dark and communications of people are limited to the horizontal direction. In this project, it is the steel rigid frame and the polyhedral partition walls that enable to overcome the drawbacks of typical townhouses. Large openings on the walls and the floors, along with the partitions, allow natural light to diffuse multidirectionally, and encourage three dimensional communications and movements. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alphaville ArchitectsFreed from the constraints of the old system, occupants can have various relations with each other and place, and a new lifestyle in the historical area of Kyoto emerges.Project gallerySee allShow less“From Suburb to City” International Summer Academy 2012ArticlesPassive House International Design CompetitionArticles Share Japan “COPY” Projects 2010 Area: 78 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project New Kyoto Town House / Alphaville ArchitectsSave this projectSaveNew Kyoto Town House / Alphaville Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Kyoto-shi, Japan Year: center_img ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAlphaville ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKyoto-shiHousesJapanPublished on January 27, 2012Cite: “New Kyoto Town House / Alphaville Architects” 27 Jan 2012.

On March 8 worldwide, women resist all forms of oppression

first_imgManila, Philippines, March 8.Struggle. Solidarity. Capitalist governments omit those words in their glossy, superficial receptions on International Women’s Day, March 8. However, those words convey the very essence of this important day for working and oppressed women worldwide.International Women’s Day was founded by European socialists in 1910; they sought to build global solidarity among women and promote their struggles for equal rights. It has also been marked by marches, rallies and sit-ins against war, occupations, political repression, corporate globalization and more.For more than a century, women have marched for jobs, livable wages, humane working conditions and unionization. Migrant workers decry abusive treatment and racism. Women from oppressed and Indigenous nations demand their rights. Women worldwide call for a halt to all forms of gender discrimination and anti-woman violence.A United Nations analysis issued on March 9 revealed a stunning global statistic: One of every three women has experienced domestic and/or sexual abuse or harassment. If that study included violence against women caused by imperialist wars and occupying armies, repressive governments and their police or corporate exploiters, the figures would be much, much higher.Below are some of this year’s highlights.Palestinians resistPalestinian women’s determination and strength are lauded worldwide. On March 7, 1,000 of these courageous women marched to Qalandiya checkpoint, which separates Jerusalem and Ramallah. They protested Israel’s brutal occupation of their lands on the West Bank and the siege of Gaza. Freeing their imprisoned sisters was another demand.Some 500 Palestinians and Jewish supporters marched to meet them from the Israeli side. But Israeli soldiers blocked the two groups from uniting. As women neared the gates, some trying to hang Palestinian flags, soldiers violently attacked them, firing rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades. Thirty women were injured, 10 hospitalized.As Israel confiscates more land in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, our sisters will keep on resisting. They deserve world support.From Turkey to IndonesiaIn Istanbul and other cities in Turkey, women protested gender inequality, domestic abuse, sexual assaults and the rising rate of femicide. Activists denounced President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has publicly stated that women are not equals of men. Women say the government’s anti-woman policies are causing erosion of their rights, growing inequities and disregard of violence against women.Bangladeshi garment workers, labor activists and other women rallied in Dhaka on Women’s Day for comprehensive equal rights, equitable wages, safer working conditions and legal protections from sexist violence.Nearly two years ago, the world watched in horror when 1,135 garment workers were killed and 2,500 injured in the Rana Plaza building collapse. To date, 5,000 disabled workers or relatives of the deceased have received merely 40 percent of compensation due them by super-rich global brands. The struggle goes on.Gabriela, the Philippines’ mass women’s organization, coordinated demonstrations in Manila and countrywide to demand that President Benigno Aquino III resign. They want an end to his pro-U.S., pro-corporate policies, and call for economic relief for one-fourth of the population who are impoverished.Moreover, activists object to growing U.S. intervention, which brings more soldiers, leading to increased sexual exploitation of women.Promoting the rights of the 300,000 women migrant workers in Hong Kong was the focus of the Women’s Day demonstrations there.Indonesian women in Jakarta marched for legal protections and livable wages for the country’s 2.5 million domestic workers, often abused and unpaid.AfricaOn the African continent, many commemorations took place.In the Northwest, Saharawi women demonstrated against global companies that aid Morocco’s 40-year occupation of their homeland and plunder of their resources in the Western Sahara.In the South, an event in Zimbabwe highlighted governmental measures designed to advance gender equality and women’s rights and to make up for past inequities. Constitutional amendments in 2013 were intended to help achieve these goals in education, employment and participation in government.A lecture was held in Limpopo on March 12 in memory of Albertina Sisulu, anti-apartheid and African National Congress leader and spouse of 25-year-imprisoned hero, Walter Sisulu. Zingiswa Losi, Congress of South African Trade Union second deputy president, called for recognizing women’s role in the struggle, their equality with men and the need for unity within the union. She emphasized, “Comrade Albertina Sisulu participated in the struggle as an equal to all other leaders, both men and women of her time.” (, March 13)Caribbean, Latin America“Women, strengthening our leadership to change our lives” was the theme of an International Women’s Day meeting organized by women in Canaan, Haiti — a city largely inhabited by people displaced by the 2010 earthquake.“We want to organize ourselves to tell Haitian authorities that we are entitled to basic services. We cannot accept the marginalization which is inflicted upon us in Canaan,” stressed Erlande Brutus, representative of the city’s women’s groups.Saniece Little Phat, coordinator of Solidarite Fanm Lakay, explained Haiti’s unique women’s movement. Geralda Sainville, a leader of Group for Repatriates and Refugees (GARR), encouraged women’s participation to strengthen their leadership, which “is the first step in being heard.” They emphasized building solidarity, too.Socialist Cuba is a beacon of progress for women. The Federation of Cuban Women, founded in 1960 by Vilma Espin, has been instrumental in this process. International Women’s Day is observed everywhere. The Revolution’s achievements are profound. Notably, Cuba ranks fourth in the world in the number of women parliamentarians with 48.9 percent and second in the Americas to Bolivia with 53.1 percent.In Mexico City, mothers of Ayotzinapa’s 43 “disappeared” students led a march on March 8. At an event the previous day, they pledged to keep searching for their children and asked supporters to maintain unity and keep organizing, as “the Ayotzinapa movement will not stop.”In Tegucigalpa, women rallied for Gladys Lanza, coordinator of the Honduran Women’s Committee for Peace “Visitacion Padilla,” and an anti-imperialist and former union leader. Juan Orlando Hernandez’s U.S.-backed coup government wrongly prosecuted her for slander for defending a woman whom a government ally sexually harassed. Women’s and human rights’ organizations and the popular resistance say, “Drop the charges!” against Lanza, 73, who faces imprisonment, reported Lucy Pagoada, of Honduras Resistance USA.Defend VenezuelaDespite heightened U.S. sanctions and coup threats, the Bolivarian government keeps advancing women’s roles. International Women’s Day was the final day of an 8,000-strong National Women’s Congress in Caracas. Women’s defense of the revolutionary process was highlighted. Rural and urban workers, mothers, youth, militia members and Indigenous women attended; they agreed on proposals to further empower women.The National Women’s Union was founded, which President Nicolás Maduro told participants would have its own “structures” throughout society. He agreed on initiatives for women’s progress, including that they comprise half of the National Assembly.Already, women receive six months’ paid maternity leave, free health care and food subsidies. Mothers are eligible for full rent coverage and are protected from eviction.Fight austerityEuropean demonstrators deplored austerity layoffs and service cuts imposed by capitalist bankers and their own governments. Women marched for equal rights, political representation, jobs, pay equity, reproductive justice and an end to anti-woman assaults. Australia’s actions opposed domestic violence, too.Women’s oppression is rooted in unequal class society. Corporate globalization, imperialist exploitation and oppression of nationalities further affect women. It is time to intensify the struggle against horrific capitalism — in the spirit of International Women’s Day, as its socialist founders intended.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan: ‘I proudly stand with President Maduro and the people of Venezuela’

first_imgThis statement originally appeared on Sheehan’s Jan. 27 “Soapbox” blogspot.Since Hugo Chávez Frias became president of Venezuela in 1998 and immediately fulfilled his promise to have the people write their own Constitution and its provisions for social improvements were being rapidly instituted, the U.S. has had the Bolivarian Revolution in its crosshairs.Since then, the income gap in Venezuela has narrowed; people have been educated and their health (including dental and vision) taken care of; housing and food became human rights instead of privileges for the wealthy; and so forth. Not only these things, but the people of Venezuela were empowered to have a say in their government. For example, the only way the Bolivarian constitution can be amended is through public referendum. With the elitist Constitution of the U.S., only the elites can realistically amend it. Chávez was a champion of not only the people of Venezuela, but brought a new standard of life to Cuba, recognizing Fidel Castro as a great leader and recognizing Cuba as a force for good in the world. The Cuban-Venezuelan alliance brought doctors, professors and engineers to Venezuela to help fulfill the social programs and Venezuela sent beef and oil. Citgo oil (under the leadership of Chávez) was the only oil company to answer the call for low-cost heating oil for poor people in the northeast of North America. I spent time traveling in Latin America with President Chávez and saw the universal love and respect he received. The U.S. programs of constant harassment and coup attempts did not work against Chávez because not only was he a popular leader, but he was the democratically elected leader of the sovereign Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.After Hugo Chávez died of a very aggressive form of cancer, Nicolás Maduro was elected president after a short term of interim presidency.Maduro is NOT a “dictator.” He has been elected in legitimate and transparent elections — the last one by 67 percent. Nor is he corrupt or incompetent. Since he took over the reins of the government, he has not had one moment of peace from the opposition in Venezuela which is fully supported and funded by the U.S. Empire. The U.S. has placed numerous economic sanctions and diplomatic restrictions on what it calls a “state sponsor of terror.” The U.S. has been helped by its puppet in the region: Colombia. President Maduro has been doing a heroic job of trying to hold the legacy of Chavismo and the Bolivarian Revolution together. I strongly condemn the recent U.S.attempts at further destabilization in Venezuela when the corrupt and vicious leadership “recognized” the traitorous, counterrevolutionary Guaidó as the “legitimate leader” of Venezuela by executive decree. By international law, the U.S. is the largest “state sponsor of terror” and the Trump regime has little support in the U.S., so why should its decrees be accepted internationally?In addition, I deeply condemn and reject the appointment of the convicted war criminal Elliott Abrams as special U.S. envoy to Venezuela. With this signal to Venezuela and the world, I fear the next step is a military invasion, which I would also profoundly oppose. I proudly stand with the legitimate government of Venezuela, President Maduro and the people of Venezuela who, after being empowered by the Bolivarian Revolution, will refuse to descend back into poverty and tyranny. ¡Viva Maduro! ¡Viva Venezuela! !Viva revolucion!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Young Limerick people showing apathy towards local politics

first_imgWhatsApp Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Advertisement Linkedin Twitter Facebook #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Email Cllr Daniel ButlerFINE Gael councillor Daniel Butler claims he is meeting a feeling of apathy towards politics amongst young people while out canvassing for the local elections in Limerick City West.Daniel (35), who was recently appointed councillor to fill his late father Richard Butler’s seat, is also reminding young people that the time to register to vote is drawing to a close. The closing date for inclusion on the supplementary register is May 6.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “In my experience out there knocking on doors there is a feeling of apathy towards politics amongst people my own age and younger in particular. At my first county council meeting, I looked around the room at my colleagues to see that I was by far on the younger extremes of the age profile,” said Cllr Butler.The Limerick City West councillor is hopeful that the Local Reform Bill 2013 will tackle the issue of making local representatives more representative of the general population. He is also confident that the Bill will improve community engagement.“The role has in the past attracted people who may be retired and have perhaps a pension behind them and time to be able to take up the role or self employed people such as publicans who have control over their own hours and have an additional income. It does not support young family people such as myself to take up the role,” Cllr Butler commented.“People want someone to represent them that can relate to their struggles and their concerns and the system does not support that. Young people now struggle to tell you the name of the Taoiseach. And why should they care if they feel the system does not hear them and support them?” he asked.
