Amidst a bustling locality in New Delhi, on the corner of a residential street a landmark constituting of tangled electrical cables, pole and a ficus tree is unconsciously replaced by an architectural reflection of a family. This reflection is the B123 residence that efficiently cuts out the prevailing chaos and weaves a complex family arrangement together through its spatial fluidity.Save this picture!© Dev SinghImage of a House.It is a rarity in metropolitan cities to find in a family where 3 generations stay together. With the given familial arrangement where the owner being the first generation, his two sons with their respective spouses being the second and their kids being the third generation; it was important to provide each mindset a sense of private domain yet connect it in space and time to encourage mutual interactions so that the ever increasing families, even though divided by floors in plan the entire house gets connected through multiple cut-outs within the vertical sections throughout.Save this picture!Diagram PerspectiveThe difficulties of the design aligned with architect’s concept in formulating an image of the house – an almost solid exterior with a very fluid interior construed the common manifestation of the client and the architect. Here, each floor looks onto the other creating a series of double and triple heights that bridges the divide between individual families encouraging interactions. A continuous connection unites the three floors whilst creating a dramatic play of light in the open courtyard.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThe Eyes of the Open Courtyard.The house settles in the confine of a rectangular site abutting an existing house from the north-eastern side. This edge becomes a base for an anchor wall in coherence with remaining three perforated facades. Each of these facades have multiple yet optimised openings for natural light which is a key architectural element in this project.Save this picture!© Dev SinghTreading the traditional route, the entire house is conceived around a single courtyard that forms a glass plunge pool on the ground floor. The pool behaves as a screen of light as it receives natural light from the same sized skylight above, on the terrace but also, gives abundant reflected and refracted light to the basement; turning it into a private gallery for social gathering. The light is further enhanced within the basement by creating a sunken court towards the street. On the ground floor level the entrance is translated by an access bridge over the moat below.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section 2A sculpturesque yellow staircase connects the basement level to the floor above that function as a private parking facility and a hub for electromechanical services. Steps leading upwards, to the raised ground floor which accommodates the main dining area and kitchen along with the master bedroom along with the glass pooled courtyard that boasts a colourful art piece on one wall that runs till the skylight on top and branches out at every floor into two bedrooms and seating areas. Similarly, the upper floors transmute into bedrooms and private lounge spaces along with connecting bridges. These bridges have unique steel cut-out railing which adds art with every movement along these pathways.Save this picture!© Dev SinghAdding a lyrical connotation within the stated precincts of the naturally lit courtyard, a glass lounge is suspended between the second and third floor. It is skewed from the grid plan and serves as a leisure space for reading and other rejuvenation activities. Complementing this structural element, hanging above the floating lounge is an exemplary innovation – an exposed air conditioning duct with multiple shafts carrying cool air stemming out of it; these also work as light fixtures and make it look like a piece of art. Save this picture!© Dev SinghLike a unique metaphor binding all the levels, on every floor the bedrooms with sliding glass doors overlook the courtyard and its steel cut-outs; this is an age old concept of traditional Indian Havelis that has been explored here in its modern interpretation.Save this picture!© Dev SinghVisual connect to History.In a fast-paced city, it is easy for history to be displaced but if these trophies of the past are well-preserved or are celebrated in the present times then one who belongs to the present can form associations with a past one has not been a witness to. Like an analogy to the city’s history, the house B123, a family unit for three generation meditates on the terrace where the serene garden opens to magnify an enviable view of the Qutub Minar on one side and the Bahai temple on other side.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThese two pivotal monuments form a visual connect from one work of architecture to another. A disconnect from the immediate surrounding yet connecting to the dots in the past making it relevantly contextual to a larger context than what is easily perceivable to the eye.Save this picture!Cross Section 1Material and Designing.Since it is an inward looking house, the balance between the spatial narratives from the exterior into the interior is also explored in terms of inventive material palettes. The entire house has been designed as a flat slab construction with exposed concrete soffits and structural elements. The exterior cladding comprises of custom designed and in situ manufactured precast concrete panels and reclaimed wood planks. The external door windows are in aluminium manufactured by Schüco, with double low E-glass to cut out glare and the traffic sounds from the main street.Save this picture!© Dev SinghAll external walls are designed as cavity walls with the cavity filled with polyurethane foam to control the inside vs. outside temperatures. This effect is enhanced on the terrace using a sandwich slab which is further covered with a thick insulation of natural earth and grass reducing the solar gains through the roof almost negligible. The glass and wood combination employed within the staircase and passages adds a distinct personality to the spaces. Lyrically playing through every space are the hanging lights that add warmth and bind the areas into a cohesive unit.Save this picture!© Dev SinghThe contemporary steel cut-out design used in the pathways also finds its space within the walls as art pieces, enhanced with back-lighting and further matched with long hanging lights in different metals.Save this picture!© Dev SinghProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Fukaya / Nobuo ArakiSelected ProjectsRetrospect Vineyards House / Swatt | Miers ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  Save this picture!© Dev Singh+ 53 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeM:OFA StudiosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew DelhiIndiaPublished on August 19, 2015Cite: “House B123 / M:OFA Studios” 19 Aug 2015.

first_img Howard Lake | 18 August 2010 | News The Institute of Fundraising and Fundraising Standards Board are encouraging landowners to report any charities which contravene best practice ./guidance when co-ordinating Three Peaks charity challenge events. The two organisations want to ensure that the long-term sustainability of charity challenge events is preserved given that they raise substantial funds for UK charities.Complaints about charity challenge events in the Three Peaks should be referred to the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) who can then help forward them to the relevant charity, assist in resolution and education about specific park requirements and concerns from local communities.The Outdoor UK Challenge Events Code provides best practice ./guidance for charity fundraisers, including a specific section on the Three Peaks Challenge. The Code emphasises the importance of preserving the natural environment in areas such as National Parks, whose beauty needs to be preserved. With these areas under increasing visitor pressure, land managers and local people are increasingly concerned about the impact of large scale charity challenge events in and around Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.Louise Richards, Director of Policy and Campaigns at the Institute of Fundraising, comments: “In revising our ./guidance on outdoor fundraising, the Institute wants to actively encourage best practice in this area. That is why, in addition to providing a revised Code to the sector and other stakeholders, we are asking landowners to refer any examples of bad practice to the Fundraising Standards Board. We feel this will help raise standards in outdoor fundraising, which remains a popular form of raising money for charity.”Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board added: “Fundraisers and volunteers come together to make these events an immensely successful and fun way of raising money for good causes up and down the country. But it is essential that participants follow the Institute’s ./guidance if charities are to continue to be welcomed by landowners and local residents.”Complaints can be made to the Fundraising Standards Board at:www.givewithconfidence.org.ukPhoto: burge5000 on flickr.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Who Funds You?, which rates think tanks and public policy-focused campaigns for funding transparency, is considering expanding its coverage to include campaign groups.Who Funds You?, asks organisations to name funders who gave more than £5,000 in the last year, and how much they gave, and has also recently updated its ratings and relaunched its website.The site was set up by participants of the Political Innovation project, and is managed on a voluntary basis by a steering group comprising: Clifford Singer, Who Funds You? director and creative director at Social Spark; Karin Christiansen, board chair at Open Knowledge and former managing director of Publish What You Fund; Paul Evans, founder of Political Innovation; and Dr Andy Williamson, director of Democratise and former director of digital democracy at the Hansard Society.Clifford Singer, director of Who Funds You?, said:“When we launched five years ago there was little concern among think tanks around issues of funding transparency but it’s become much more pressing over the last year, with debates around Trump, ‘fake news’ and ‘dark money’ in politics. So this year we’re stepping up activity and plan to double the number of organisations we rate from 25 to 50.“Although we’re mainly interested in think tanks, we are seeing an increasing number of ‘hybrid’ organisations that have elements of both campaign groups and think tanks. We already cover some of these but expect to include more in the future. It’s more about what they do than how they label themselves. If, for example, they are giving evidence to Parliamentary committees and inquiries, we think they have a duty to declare their funding.”Who Funds You? is looking for feedback on its plans to expand coverage to cover campaign groups, and comments can be sent to [email protected] Tagged with: Funding transparency Who Funds You? looks to expand coverage to campaign groups Advertisement  107 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 31 March 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

For this, it is often harassed and attacked. It was subjected to a major cyber-attack in June 2014 and was the target of two arson attacks in January 2015, one of them on Lai’s home.The Hong Kong special administrative region is ranked 73rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling from 18th position in 2002.

first_imgABC NewsBy KELLY MCCARTHY and SABINA GHEBREMEDHIN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — In the wake of a now-viral incident where a woman accused a Grammy-winning Black jazz musician’s teenage son of stealing her cell phone in a hotel lobby, the parents and their son described how the confrontation left them “shell-shocked.”“I’ve been confused. I mean, don’t know what would’ve happened if my dad wasn’t there, honestly,” Keyon Harrold Jr. told Good Morning America on Tuesday. “These past few days, still kind of shell-shocked. But I’m hanging in there.”The 14-year-old spoke out for the first time on GMA, alongside his father Keyon Harrold, his mom Kat Rodriguez and their attorney Ben Crump.When asked to think back to how he felt in the moment when the chaos unfolded, Harrold Jr. said, “I was confused because I’ve never seen that lady ever and I didn’t know what to do at the moment — that’s why I was happy to have my dad there to help me.”The incident captured on video on Dec. 26 in the lobby of the Arlo Hotel in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, showed Harrold with his son defending themselves against an unidentified woman who repeatedly demanded he “give it back” — apparently referencing her cell phone.Harrold told GMA that physically, the woman “was all on him asking for his phone immediately” once they got down to the lobby.“But after the video cuts off and, I mean, she basically tackled, she scratched me, and I was there to, you know, try to protect my little cub,” he said. “And basically trying to keep her away, keep her off of my son. I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like if I wasn’t there to be with him.”Rodriquez, who was not there at the time, told GMA that she feared the possible alternative outcomes if Harrold Jr. had not had a parent by his side.“Fear came in because my son, if his father wouldn’t have been there, what would have happened to my son if the cops would have been called,” she said. “When my son asked me, ‘why me, mom?’ That just hurt.“The toughest answer that a parent has to give their child — unfortunately it might be because you’re Black. It might be because you’re no longer seen as a child. When you look at him, he looks like he could be 16 or 17. But when you hear him speak, he’s a 14-year-old boy,” Rodriguez said.A hotel manager got involved as the woman became more emphatic, but the artist claimed the manager sided with the woman, who was not a current guest at the hotel.The Arlo Hotel later said in a statement that they apologized for how the dispute was handled and said that they have reached out to the family. Crump told ABC News that the phone in question was later returned by an Uber driver after the owner left the phone in the car, and he is petitioning Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. to bring charges against the woman who allegedly attacked Harrold and his son.The family’s attorney told GMA that they are petitioning the Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. “to bring charges against this woman for assault and battery.”“We want charges because we have to send a message because this has larger society implications,” Crump said. “Think about how many Black men have been falsely accused by these Karens and they end up losing their liberty and losing their life sitting in prison.”The term “Karen” took on a new meaning in 2020 stemming from multiple racially charged incidents involving women calling the police on Black men. The moniker has come to signify white women acting entitled and has sparked thousands of memes. The term has been around for several years, with the origin largely unknown.The NYPD said it is investigating the incident.Harrold Jr. said that if he were to speak with the woman again he would first, “expect an apology.”“I would ask her why would she do something like this to a kid who has never met you at all and I would just ask just why,” he added.Rodriguez echoed the same rhetorical question, “I want to know why.”“The whole point is why — we don’t have any clue why this woman attacked our son,” she said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
