The Hive Apartment was designed by architect Zvi Belling of ITN Architects. This site was specifically selected for a graffiti/architecture project. The ideas in the building have been refined over time by the designer in prior competitions, publications and collaborations with street artists. The architect developed the project with his neighbour (aka Prowla), a respected old school Melbourne graffiti ‘writer’ who contributed the design of the graffiti letters. The external precast concrete walls of the apartments are inscribed with these letters and other hip hop iconography.Save this picture!© Patrick RodriguezRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaBetonPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – JacquardPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – 20MM The graffiti relief panel spells HIVE written in ‘wild style’ with some initiation into the cultural codification of letters being required to decipher the words. These external geometries directly determine the interiors and have been extruded into living spaces in bulkheads and wall shapes. There are inherent tensions in the building where graffiti complete with spray drip effect has been created without any paint and an anti-establishment art form has been situated in an exclusive inner city residential suburb. These tensions are resolving over time as respect for the building spreads within the graffiti community and the local residents begin to claim ownership of their new street art. The outward presentation of robust public art fortifies the internal spaces into a calm refuge that is adorned with street art frames and canvasses. The notion of hive as home has been extracted from the facade and reappears through the fitout in various guises.Save this picture!Courtesy of Zvi Belling The concrete relief façade containing shapes such as letters, arrows, swooshes and drips has been slotted into the exposed brickwork shell of an old Carlton tailor shop. It was important for the street art, graffiti in this case, to be essential to the experience of the building inside and out. The 4m high concrete letters are load bearing with the weight of all four stories transferring to the footing through the oversized letter ‘E’ and simultaneously creating a dramatic visual entry to the apartment. Similarly the punctuations in the facades allow interesting views and natural light opportunities within the habitable spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Zvi Belling The graffiti letters were initially conceived of as a masonry element but through collaboration with Euro Precast, concrete was adopted for the façade and by extension as the structural system for the entire building. Logistical innovation was required to install the 4m high, 14 tonne load bearing 50mpa letter panels at the commencement of the construction program and protect these feature panels through the construction period. The architect and the graffiti artist were involved with the setup, concrete pour and delivery phases of the panel fabrication.Save this picture!Courtesy of Zvi Belling The project was completed within $50K of the initial estimates. Working closely with the builder, while maintaining flexibility was the key to ensuring savings through the life of the project.Save this picture!Elevación Norte The project is the architect’s home and as such was an opportunity to experiment. There are concealed sliding panels revealing louvred ports for cross ventilating habitable rooms. There are unusual door arrangements to minimize temperature exchange between zones. Solar panels are located on the roof and a water storage tank has been installed below the car park area. Reusing available building fabric and designing small footprint high density living are significant environmental features of the development. The new apartment is an intervention into the fabric of this Carlton block but through apparent contradiction seeks to knit itself into the existing building on the site to form an integrated new cultural type that exposes the history of the site with glimpses of period material and detail. An urban street is celebrated through the making permanent of an ephemeral art.Project gallerySee allShow lessHotel Miura / Labor 13Selected ProjectsThe ContemPLAY Pavilion / DRS + FARMMArticlesProject locationAddress:Melbourne VIC, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Message from Leonard Peltier to Day of Mourning

first_imgStatement of Leonard Peltier read by Bert Waters at National Day of Mourning, Plymouth, Mass., Nov. 23.Greetings my friends, relatives and supporters. Once again, I can’t tell you how much I am so honored that you would want to hear my words, or should I say read my words. You can’t imagine the thoughts that go through my head at times whenever everything is still and quiet in the night, when I lie there staring into the dark with daydreams of how things could possibly be better.I know I’ve said this once before in some past statement years back. However, it comes to my thoughts how the term “day of mourning” makes me think of a reverse, as in the morning of a new day, and how one term refers to those caught up in a deep sorrow and how the other term is a promise of a new beginning with the rising of the sun.In our traditions and culture most tribal nations historically did a mourning period of one year for the deceased. However, for us during this point in time, we are continually losing our people, and especially our young people, and our women who continually disappear with no trace. Our lands are constantly violated. The air, the water, the soil, all of nature is screaming against the injustice that is continually perpetrated by those who worship money.So in essence I want to say in the loudest voice and the most sincere voice I can possibly speak, we don’t have a DAY of mourning. We have GENERATIONS of mourning year after year. I don’t know what I can do further from where I’m at, but in whatever way possible I want to add my scream to the scream of the earth and the scream of our people for justice.These ecological disasters caused by the wealthy must stop. Those people who are destroying the earth must realize that they ultimately will destroy themselves also. I know many of you have taken part in the prayer vigils and stood strong in the face of wrongful beatings and shootings and various other forms of violence, and I commend you for your bravery. Having said that, I want to encourage you to move forward to a new day. With each new day we need to rise to the occasion to defend what is right and do what we can to right what is wrong.Our enemy is not any person of particular color. Our enemy is those who are ignorant of the reality that we are all an intricate part of the circle of life. We must arm ourselves with the knowledge it takes to bring attention to the wrongness of their thinking, the wrongness of their exploitation of our mother earth, and the wrongness of their mistreatment of the Indigenous peoples throughout our lands. I would encourage you to mourn if that is your way and do whatever length of time that is required by your teachings.However, I sincerely encourage each one of you to take it upon yourself to become a warrior of one. Educate yourself. Find the knowledge it takes to survive and thrive in a good way. And to confront the ignorance of those who are destroying the natural. Confront them in such a way that they will come to know that to destroy the earth, to destroy our people, to continually ignore a philosophy and teachings that allowed this land to exist since the beginning of time in a beautiful natural existence, they will ultimately destroy themselves and all life.Perhaps I’ve said too much. I don’t know your agenda. Obviously I have more time than you. I want to say in closing, I love you, I love that you’re here, I love that you want to make a difference and I will pray for you always. I further want to say you are making a difference. You have made a difference; power to the people and the earth.If you have any questions about donations for my new legal team, please call our new office in Tampa, Fla., at 218-790-7667 and join us in the struggle for my freedom to join you here in person, a dream of mine for many years.In the Spirit of Crazy HorseDoksha,Leonard PeltierFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Putin and Bush urged to request UN probe into US journalist’s murder in Moscow

first_img Help by sharing this information читать на русскомReporters Without Borders today called on Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President George W. Bush, who are to meet at the G8 summit on 15-17 July in St. Petersburg, to ask the United Nations to carry out an independent investigation into the unsolved murder of US journalist Paul Klebnikov exactly two years ago in Moscow.“After three people accused of murdering Klebnikov were acquitted by a Russian court at the end of a farce of a trial on 5 May, it is clear that justice even in such a high profile case remains elusive in Russia,” the press freedom organisation said.“It is intolerable that impunity should prevail and press freedom should be flouted like this in a country that is a G8 member,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “Klebnikov is the 13th journalist to be murdered in Russia since 2000. His family, his widow and his two children all have a right to know the truth. For all these reasons, the investigation should start again from scratch.”Recalling President Putin’s statement at last month’s World Newspaper Congress in Moscow that a progressive state should have a free press, Reporters Without Borders said he should demonstrate his commitment to press freedom by reaffirming the need to solve the Klebnikov murder to his counterparts at the G8 summit. Putin has made no public comment about the case since the trial of the alleged murderers began in January.The US House of Representatives condemned the Klebnikov murder on 16 May and asked the Russian authorities to press on with their investigations. A similar resolution was introduced on June 29 in the US senate with Senator Hillary Clinton’s support and has a good chance of being approved.“In view of the irregularities seen in the investigation since 2004, we think there is now no alternative but to set up an independent commission,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Mr. Putin and Mr. Bush, you are to meet within a few days at the G8 summit in St. Petersburg. We urge you to ask the United Nations to create an international commission to investigate the Klebnikov murder.”The editor of the Russian edition of the US magazine Forbes, Klebnikov was gunned down as he left his Moscow office on 9 July 2004 and died in the ambulance that rushed him to hospital. The investigators worked on the assumption that Chechens were behind his murder as he had written extensively about Chechnya. Suspects were quickly arrested but the trial was marred by numerous procedures violations. Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President George W. Bush will meet at the G8 summit on 15-17 July in St. Petersburg. Reporters Without Borders urges them to ask the UN to carry out an independent investigation into the unsolved murder of US journalist Paul Klebnikov.

Mesocyclone activity over the North-East Atlantic. Part 1: vortex distribution and variability

first_imgPolar mesocyclones are subsynoptic-scale low pressure systems that form over high-latitude oceans in a cold air mass. It is known that these systems can be very vigorous but only relatively short time periods have been studied in the past to estimate their characteristics. Here satellite imagery is used to study mesocyclones observed over the North-East Atlantic and Nordic Seas during the 2-year period October 1993–September 1995. An unexpectedly large number (4054) of mesocyclones were found, occurring throughout the year, although winter was the most active season. Most mesocyclones were observed in the northern regions of the study area, near the ice edge, and were small, with 86% of cyclones having diameters of <400 km. Most mesocyclones form, and decay, within 1 day and travel only short distances. The large-scale circulation plays a role in determining mesocyclone numbers as the two separate 12-month periods in the study exhibited very different characteristics.last_img read more


first_imgAttached is a post from Classykvillepolitics we felt worth re-postingFeb 9, 2016 at 11:54 amAs someone who is very familiar with the Indiana Open Door Law, I will offer the following.The decision by Miss Mosby to allow someone 10 minutes to talk while limiting comments from the audience is supported by the requirements of the Indiana Open Door Law. Yes, it was a crappy way of handling it, but her methods are within the guidelines.Let me explainSince the Indiana Open Door Law has NO requirement that a Council, Commission, or Board accept or allow public comments from citizens, the fact that the City Council has placed that allowance into their meetings is good for us citizens.The way that Miss Mosby got around that and was able to allow more time (I think some have stated 10 minutes) for John Graybill was exactly what the CCO has pointed out: He was an “agenda item”As someone who is officially on the agenda, there are no restrictions on how much time may be utilized to address the Council, Commission, or Board. The Chair of the meeting can decide and govern the speaking time, but in reality there are no legal restrictions on someone addressing the Council, Commission, or Board.By allowing Mr. Graybill to be an “agenda item” instead of a citizen speaking during the “open comment” period, Miss Mosby has managed to get around the 3 minute “open comment” period the City Council has adopted.Now, don’t be fooled for a minute about the Sneagal on this. The agenda of Council, Commission, or Board is almost always decided by the Chair, which in this case was City Council President Missy Mosby. She allowed Mr. Graybill to be on the official agenda as an “agenda item,” and by doing so she was assured that Mr. Graybill would not be limited to the 3 minute restriction for an “open comment” by a citizenAlso, it is my understanding that an agenda can be changed up to 24 hours before the actual meeting takes place. I’m going to research that. But as long as the final agenda is “posted” for the meeting, which is done by taping it to the outside of Room 301, they can make changes.Finally, here is my advice to citizens who want to do things “officially” while abiding by the rules: Request to be on the agenda.By requesting to be on the agenda, you force them to recognize your request, and by doing so you can make it arranged so that you are NOT limited to 3 minutes as an “open comment” item.However, be advised that agenda items for a Council, Commission, or Board are SOLELY at the discretion of the President or Chair of the meeting. Requesting to address a Council, Commission, or Board is NOT a guarantee of being allowed to speak. I can pretty much promise that for the situation we have seen under Miss Mosby that she will be tight-fisted in controlling who will be placed on the agenda and what they speak about.But if that happens over and over again, eventually somebody will take notice and consider a complaint to the Indiana Public Access Counselor. Unless the guidelines for being accepted for the agenda to address the City Council are written down in a way that does not discriminate against certain citizens, Miss Mosby and the City Council might have a headache.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
