Situated in Laoshan Forest to the west of central Nanjing city, China International Practical Exhibition of Architecture (CIPEA) began in 2003 to bring twenty-four renowned international & domestic architects together onto one site. CIPEA consist of four public buildings and twenty small houses, in accordance with the brief, the houses should have at least five bedrooms, public spaces, and hospitality accommodations on 500 square meters.

In the spirit of a pagoda, four cubic floors are stacked vertically, allowing for minimal site excavation and land use. The ground floor features living and dining spaces quietly enveloped in the surrounding forest and overlooking a stream, and a communal roof terrace rises to just above the trees. The roof merges into the landscape as another living space, complete with pool and wooden deck within the panorama of the forest. The geometric shape is sculpted from concrete and finished in a white protection surface. Save this picture!© Yao LiThe concept of Blockhouse is almost the living attitude of many Chinese: a minimal opening to the surrounding landscape is the only perforation of the richness inside the house. The horizontal break of each floor—in combination with larger unique curved apertures on each floor—frame vistas in the spirit of Chinese landscape scrolls. Prescribed views have a long tradition in Chinese art history and traditional Chinese gardens, designed to make the viewer reconsider and contemplate the landscape.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Print This Post About Author: David Wharton Most millennials still believe in the American Dream of homeownership—77 percent want to someday own a home, according to the latest ValueInsured Modern Homebuyer Survey. However, those hopes and dreams sometimes face an uphill climb when it comes to the challenges of the modern housing market. ValueInsured’s latest survey provides some insights into where millennial homebuyers are compromising when it comes to purchasing a home—and why.As ValueInsured points out, millennial homebuying isn’t matching that generation’s aspirations in 2018, either in terms of homeownership rates or the homes they’re purchasing. While nearly 80 percent of millennials report being interested in homeownership, the actual U.S. millennial homeownership rate is only 35.3 percent—”the lowest level since the U.S. Census began tracking homeownership by age groups in 1982.”How many millennials report having to compromise their housing wish lists when it comes time to buy? Eighty-five percent, according to ValueInsured’s survey, as compared to only 56 percent of homeowners in all other age groups. For baby boomers, the number is 34 percent, well under half the millennial rate.So, what form are those compromises coming in? Forty-one percent of surveyed millennial homebuyers report having to settle for a smaller home than they wanted in order to stick within their budget. Given the continued increase of home prices in many markets, that’s not surprising. Forty percent report having to expand their search for a home beyond their target location, and 41 percent report having to sacrifice some desired features in order to make the buy, including air conditioning, fireplaces, or flooring options. Thirty-nine percent said their new homes came with less accompanying land than they would have liked.There are definitely some instances of buyer’s remorse in the mix, to one degree or another. Of those surveyed, 37 percent said they didn’t like the style of home they eventually settled on. Eighty percent of those surveyed reported planning to move again within five years. A full 52 percent planned to move again within three.To read ValueInsured’s full breakdown of millennial homebuyer trends, click here.

WPBF(PALM BEACH, Fla.) — Five people are dead after a small plane fell from the sky and plunged into Lake Okeechobee in southern Florida on Friday afternoon.All five bodies were recovered from the fuselage of the airplane, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.“A twin-engine Piper aircraft went down in Lake Okeechobee while on approach to Pahokee Airport at approximately 3:30 p.m. today,” the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. “The flight departed from Tampa International Airport. The FAA is investigating. However, the National Transportation Safety Board will be in charge of the investigation and will release updates.” The accident happened about 400 yards north of Pahokee Airport, which is located on the southeast shore of the large inland lake and about 200 miles from Tampa International Airport.An initial report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said “one individual was observed swimming away from the airplane, however, has not been located.” It turns out that eyewitness report was inaccurate. “I seen it circling. It went around two times,” witness Laura Lester told West Palm Beach ABC affiliate WPBF. “And it went up in that corner and it didn’t come back.”The death investigation will be handled by the PBSO Violent Crimes Division, the sheriff’s office said — standard procedure whether a crime is suspected or not.Friday’s accident took place not far from where a plane crashed into a condo building in Fort Lauderdale one week earlier. That accident, which was a single-engine Piper aircraft, was about an hour south of Pahokee Airport. The pilot of the aircraft was killed. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
kali9/iStock(BLADENSBURG, Md.) — A Maryland police officer has been criminally charged for allegedly using excessive force and injuring a woman during a traffic stop last year.Michael A. Luciotti, a nine-year veteran of the Bladensburg Police Department, was indicted Feb. 11 by the Prince George County Maryland State’s Attorney’s Office and arraigned Feb. 26 on second-degree assault and misconduct in office charges, police announced Monday.An internal investigation was launched after a woman alleged Luciotti used excessive force during a traffic stop in February 2020. The department presented the findings of the investigation to the State’s Attorney’s office for criminal consideration in December.“Our preliminary investigation revealed the citizen sustained facial and head injuries while in custody and in handcuffs,” the Bladensburg Police Department said in a press release.At the time of the indictment, Luciotti was already on suspension on a separate personnel matter.Officials said Luciotti was wearing a department-issued body camera during the stop, but that footage hasn’t been released.Last week, on April 13, a Prince George’s County judge denied Luciotti’s motion to have the case dismissed, police said.“As Chief of Police, it was deeply concerning to me after learning about the details of the complaint and then reviewing the body worn camera footage of the traffic stop. I demand that our officers respect the constitutional rights of every citizen. We will not tolerate mistreatment of any citizen of the community that we swore an oath to serve and protect,” Bladensburg Police Chief Tyrone Collington Sr. said in a statement.“The criminal process is underway and should serve as a sobering reminder that our officers are and will continue to be held to the highest standards of law and expectations of human dignity,” he added.Luciotti remains on administrative suspension with pay pending the results of the criminal proceedings, the chief said. An internal administrative investigation will be completed after the criminal proceedings wrap up.A lawyer for Luciotti declined ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Home » News » Housing Market » Holding deposits to be excluded from letting fees ban, confirms Minister previous nextHousing MarketHolding deposits to be excluded from letting fees ban, confirms MinisterAnnouncement comes during wide-ranging debate in Commons this morning led by former Hunters boss Kevin Hollinrake MP.Nigel Lewis6th September 201702,208 Views Despite industry hopes that the government may be developing cold feet about an outright letting fees ban, Housing Minister Alok Sharma has today confirmed that draft legislation will soon be ready.But there is some good news for agents – he also also confirmed that holding deposits will be excluded from the legislation.His comments came during a second chamber debate within the House of Common this morning lead by Kevin Hollinrake MP, the founder of Hunters.Alok Sharma said he had been looking at the 4,700 responses submitted during the recent eight-week long consultation process on the ban, and had concluded that an outright ban would “deliver a more competitive, affordable and transparent lettings market” and that evidence from Scotland’s recent fees ban “shows it won’t have the negative consequences people have suggested it would”.He also said a fees ban would not raise rents to the degree some research has suggested it might do, and that a rental fees cap was not a viable alternative.Mr Sharma also said that the biggest problem in the market is that the letting agent is chosen by the landlord, and therefore tenants have “limited ability to negotiate on fees or opt out,” he said.“A landlord is better placed to pay reference and credit check fees and anyway it is they who ask for the checks to be completed, not the tenant.”The Housing Minister also confirmed that holding deposits – when tenants are asked to pay a sum to secure a property prior to a deposit being paid – would be exempt from the ban.“Many letting agents are concerned that some tenants withdraw from a tenancy before paying a deposit despite referencing having been completed, which this will prevent.“This will also prevent tenants registering to rent multiple properties.”Holding depositsIn his concluding remarks, Mr Sharma also revealed that a lead enforcement body would be created to police the lettings sector while the remit of the existing redress schemes could be extended to offer greater protection to tenants. He also said that Client Money Protection would be made compulsory for letting agents, as it already is for sales agents.Kevin Hollinrake MP (pictured, left) also spoke at length at the beginning of the debate, saying he supported a complete ban and that the current situation was “simply unfair” to tenants and that the market lacked transparency and was too “closed”.He also echoed many of the Minister’s comments, including that a fees cap wouldn’t work and that a complete ban “was the only option”.Mr Hollinrake also pointed out that the number of lettings agents in Scotland had increased since its ban in 2012, but said he believed the Minister’s proposals to reduce the size of deposits would not work. This, he argued, was because deposits had to reflect the difficulties and expense many landlords faced when tenants leave a property, or fail to pay their rent.He also said a central register of landlords in the UK was needed and that a national rental standard should also be introduced.The Minister announced during the debate that the results of the consultation, his conclusions and thoughts on it, will be published “very soon”.Common senseCommenting on the Westminster Hall debate on banning letting agent fees NALS CEO, Isobel Thomson (pictured, right) said:“NALS welcomed the cross-party debate on the fee ban and confirmation that the Minister has adopted a common sense approach on holding deposits with his announcement that they will be exempt from the ban but he gave no clear indication of when legislation might come forward.“We were encouraged that MPs quite rightly expressed concern about the implications of rent increases as a result of the ban and the impact on those least likely to afford them. Of real interest was the Minister’s commitment to consider the ban on tenant fees in the context of wider work in the private rented sector, something NALS called for earlier this year. This is positive news and an indication that he has listened to the call for an end to piecemeal legislation. His clear reference to regulation was welcome as well as his willingness to explore options for what a regulatory framework might look like.” Kevin Hollinrake lettings fees ban Alok Sharma September 6, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
