Successful sustainable design requires analyzing and planning for local economic and demographic trends. In recent years, both Lawrence, Kansas and Studio 804 have recognized that while the county’s population is growing at a high rate the average household size is dwindling. Comprehensive Lawrence planning documents have anticipated these problems by projecting population growth. According to the city, we have seen medium to high population growth rates over the last two decades, and if this trend continues, we will need housing to accommodate a projected 30 to 60 thousand additional residents by the year 2040. These large population increases become even more significant when you factor in the average household size. As Lawrence wants to avoid outward sprawl, groups such as the nonprofit Community Housing Trust have put forward creative solutions for this county-wide issue. They suggest creating “affordable housing by dividing lots in existing neighborhoods to accommodate two smaller homes.” Increasing urban density in established neighborhoods provides a sustainable way to accommodate a growing population by utilizing existing resources and infrastructure. We have taken the lead in this effort by purchasing one lot and creating a subdivision for the two sustainable houses.Save this picture!© Corey GafferSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Corey GafferThis house like every Studio 804 project since 2008 is LEED Platinum certified. The houses are exceptionally airtight, highly insulated and use a highly efficient mechanical system to assure a healthy and comfortable interior environment. The materials are all chosen to avoid the unnecessary use of resources and do not emit toxins by off gassing. All the appliances and fixtures are Energy Star rated. The windows and doors are high performance. The roofing is a highly reflective metal that reduces heat absorption and is recyclable.

Situated in the heart of the city of Ahmedabad, HS house is a compact family home with common walls shared with the houses adjacent to it. This context gets a little tricky as buildings on both sides were supposed to remain untouched while the house in between them, was to be demolished and built again.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectWhile designing HS House, the biggest contextual challenge was that the light and ventilation were only possible through the two short sides of the house. This was the defining factor behind the design, which led to the insertion of a large court in the middle, to light up the entire house. The glass box above this court is used as a hot air attractor creating an air draft upwards, which is then removed through small openings at both the sides.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectSpatially, the house is planned in a simple manner. The first level is a gathering area with a small back garden and a central court garden which is the space that one first enters into. This level goes down to a basement space meant for future development, and goes up to the kitchen and dining level with a large outdoor balcony that opens in the front façade. From then onwards, each level is an individual bedroom with an attached toilet. At the topmost level, the lower terrace acts as another gathering space while the upper one on the rear end, is a service terrace. A small elevator has been incorporated, for the elderly to have easy access throughout the house. Volumetrically, the house is divided into split levels to squeeze in as much of the spaces as possible in a small volume, allowing for the front of the building to lie half a story lower than the back. This also provided for an opportunity to focus on the experience of moving vertically in the central court.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectThe materiality of the house is kept at a bare minimum, with exposed concrete allowing for natural light to create dynamism through the entire home. On the ground floor, the exposed concrete has a black pigment in it and is cast using wooden strips. This was done through pre-cast concrete panels to reduce the cost, as well as to use the least possible amount of wood. The horizontality of these panels, along with the larger amount of texture and a darker color, gives the house a heavy base. The parts above were cast in-situ with the natural light grey shade of concrete. All the bedrooms have different patterns cast across the concrete, some with grooves inlayed with brass.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectThe staircase is the main sculptural element in the house which connects essentially two separate concrete blocks. Made using a metal structure sandwiched by sheet metal, it is structurally spanned with the help of a thick handrail that acts as a beam, suspending the staircase from it. Wooden treads on top of this black metal staircase add a softness, allowing ease to walk on it barefoot.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectThroughout the house, Kota stone is used in the flooring in multiple patterns, differentiating movement area from the places of pause. Metal accents apart from the staircase are black as well, and wooden accents are used throughout in windows, doors, partitions, storage and even the flooring in the private spaces.

Parliamentary Committee, Minister & AG Said 102nd Constitutional Amendment Won’t Affect States’ Power To Identify SEBCs; Supreme Court Holds Otherwise

first_imgTop StoriesParliamentary Committee, Minister & AG Said 102nd Constitutional Amendment Won’t Affect States’ Power To Identify SEBCs; Supreme Court Holds Otherwise Ashok Kini6 May 2021 12:52 AMShare This – xAn interesting aspect of the Supreme Court judgment in Maratha Quota case is its interpretation of 102nd Constitutional Amendment.The petitioners challenged the Amendment on the ground that it violated the federal structure by denuding the power of states to identify Socially and Economically Backward Classes. The Centre, through Attorney General, defended the Amendment contending that the intention of Constitutional Amendment was not to take away the State’s power to identify the Backward Class, and that the State Government identification of Backward Class/Socially and Educationally Backward Classes is not touched by Article 342A.AG KK Venugopal submitted that the amendment dealt with ‘central lists’ and did not affect the power of States.The Attorney General, relied on Parliamentary Committee reports and speech given by the Minister in the Parliament, to drive home the point. On the other hand, the petitioners contended that Parliamentary Committee report and the speech of the Minister cannot be looked into for ascertaining the intention of Parliament in bringing the Amendment.Select Committee ReportThe report of the Select Committee included a clarification by the Ministry that the proposed amendment does not interfere with the powers of the State Governments to identify the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes. The existing powers of the State Backward Classes Commission would continue to be there even after the passage of the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-third Amendment) Bill, 2017, the report quoted the Minister. The Committee further observed that the amendments do not in any way affect the independence and functioning of State Backward Classes Commissions’ and they will continue to exercise unhindered their powers of inclusion/exclusion of other backward classes with relation to State List.”Minister’s Clarification in ParliamentBefore the Parliament, responding to the apprehensions expressed by some members, the Minister Thawarchand Gehlot stated that ‘right to include or remove in the States List concerned with OBCS will remain as it is and it will not be violated in any manner.’ “Keeping in view the sentiments of Article 15 and 16, States have also exercised their powers pertaining to making schemes in the interest of OBC category and making provisions in this behalf and such power will remain as it is. We are not making any amendment in Article 15 and Article 16. It simply means that State Commissions will not be affected in any way by this Constitutional amendment. Maximum number of Hon’ble Members have shared their views expressing their fear on this point. I, sincerely want to make it clear that State Governments have right and will remain as it is in future as well. No attempt will be made to tamper with them”, the Minister had stated. He had also added that ‘the task of making the list of States is done by taking decision by the States Commission.Justice Ashok Bhushan judgment took note of Reports, SpeechesJustice Ashok Bhushan, in his judgment, took note of the above and observed that Parliamentary Committee reports including speech given by the Minister in the Parliament are relevant materials to ascertain the intention of Parliament while construing constitutional provisions. “It is, thus, clear as sun light that Parliamentary intention discernible from Select Committee report and statement of Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment is that the intention of the Parliament for bringing Constitutional amendment was not to take away the power of the State to identify backward class in the State.. When the Parliamentary intention is discernable and admissible as aid to statutory interpretation, we see no reason not to interpret Article 342A in manner as per the intention of the Parliament noticed above.”, he said in concluding part of the judgment (Justice S. Abdul Nazeer concurred)Debates and statements cannot be conclusive about the terms of the changes brought about by an amendment to the ConstitutionJustice Ravindra Bhat, (with whom Justices L. Nageswara Rao and Hemant Gupta agreed with on this issue) approached this issue quite differently. According to him, the duty of the court always is to first interpret the text, and only if there is ambiguity in the meaning, to resort first to internal aids, before seeking external aids outside the text. “The polyvocality of parliamentary proceedings where the views expressed by Ministers or Parliamentarians may not be common or unanimous and the danger of attributing a particular intention to the terms of a statute, through the words of a Minister or other functionary which may be at odds with the plain words, cannot be lost sight of.”, he observed.About the Select Committee report, Justice Bhat noted that none of the amendments proposed, expressly preserving the state power, were accepted by the Committee. “These materials show that there was on the one hand, an assumption that the changes ushered by the amendments would not disturb any part of states’ powers; however, a sizeable number- 8 members, after a careful reading of the terms of the amendment, dissented, saying that state power would be adversely impacted. In these circumstances, the debate which ensued at the time of passing of the Bill into the 102nd Amendment was by way of an assurance by the Minister concerned that the existing power of the states would not be affected. To the same effect, are debates on the floor of the Houses of Parliament. Given all these circumstances, it is difficult to accept the contention that the Select Committee’s Report, to the extent it holds out an assurance, should be used as a determinative external aid for interpretation of the actual terms of the 102nd Amendment. Likewise, debates and statements cannot be conclusive about the terms of the changes brought about by an amendment to the Constitution.”, the judge said referring to debates in Parliament.Thus, by interpreting Articles 366(26C), 342A(1) and 342A(2), Justice Bhat observed that the power of publishing the list of SEBCs, in relation to every State and Union Territory for the purposes of the Constitution is with the President only. The judgment concludes the debate with following observations:”166. Such notification is later called as the Central List by Article 342A(2); it can only be amended by the Parliament. The contrary interpretation virtually reads into the provisions of the Constitution amendments which were proposed and expressly rejected in the proceedings of the Select Committee; it also has the effect of reading in what certain dissenting members had proposed. Furthermore, by the interpretive process of taking into account the deliberations before the Select Committee, and speeches on the floor of the Parliament this Court would be reading into the Constitution provisions which no longer exist i.e., that the State can continue to carry out identification of SEBCs. This exercise would be contrary to the express terms..167. Therefore, the above expressions, having regard to the precedents of this Court with respect to (i) interpretation of the definition clause under Article 366; (ii) interpretation of new definitions inserted in Article 366 and (iii) interpretation of amendments made to the Constitution which inserted new provisions, where the Court always leant in favour of giving fullest effect to the substantive provisions, this court has to adopt the same approach, to usher change, by plain, literal construction. This court never whittled down the terminology through extrinsic aids such as speeches made on the floor of the Parliament or Select Committee reports. In this instance, doing so would be giving effect to what Parliamentarians said or Ministers said, ignoring thereby, the plain terms of the Constitution. As stated earlier, the Court cannot assume that Parliament merely indicated a cosmetic change by conferment of constitutional changes which could have been best achieved by introducing Article 338B.”Case: Dr Jaishree Laxmanrao Patil v Chief Minister [CA 3123 of 2020]Coram : Justices Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, S Abdul Nazeer, Hemant Gupta and S Ravindra BhatCitation : LL 2021 SC 243Also From The JudgmentSupreme Court Strikes Down Maratha Quota; Says No Exceptional Circumstance To Grant Reservation In Excess Of 50% Ceiling LimitStates Have No Power To ‘Identify’ Socially & Educationally Backward Classes After 102nd Constitution Amendment : Supreme Court Holds By 3:2 Majority’To Change 50% Reservation Limit Is To Have A Society Which Is Not Founded On Equality But Based On Caste Rule’: SC Refuses To Revisit Indra Sawhney JudgmentReservation In Public Services Not The Only Method For Improving Welfare Of Backward Classes; State Should Bring Other Measures : Supreme CourtAlteration Of Content Of State Legislative Power In An Oblique & Peripheral Manner Would Not Constitute A Violation Of Basic Structure: Supreme CourtClick here to read/download the judgmentTagsIntention of Parliament Supreme Court Justice Ashok Bhushan #Justice S.

Advertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading ads

first_imgHome » News » Advertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading ads previous nextRegulation & LawAdvertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading adsDeveloper and two agents picked up for ASA code breachesNigel Lewis25th October 201601,088 Views Three different property firms including two agents and a developer have made it on to today’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) naughty step after complaints were made against them for publishing misleading ads.The most serious is against London-based agent Harper Brooks, whose website for a 98 unit, £18m new-homes development in Manchester called Grove House was investigated by the ASA following a complaint.Its website for the development, www.grovehousemanchester.co.uk, claimed to offer two-bedroom properties for rent from £650pcm but the complainant said no properties were available at that price, and that no “manned concierge desk” was available, as claimed.The ASA upheld the complaint but also heavily criticises Harper Brooks – which trades as Cambourne Properties Ltd – for not responding to the ASA’s enquiries quickly or adequately enough, which itself is a breach of the ASA’s code. When The Negotiator visited the website earlier today the advert had yet to be amended.The other complaints about misleading ads were less serious and were informally resolved. Hybrid agent YOPA was reported for failing to make it clear that VAT was not included within its ‘savings’ calculator, which shows potential clients how much less they might pay using YOPA compared to a traditional high street agent. YOPA has now amended the copy on its site.Lastly, there was a complaint against developer Springfield Properties in Glasgow for using the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme logo on property photos for developments where the scheme was not applicable. The company has agreed to amend its website, which it has now done.Harper Brooks misleading ads ASA Springfield Properties YOPA October 25, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgAre your staff lethargic? Are they difficult to motivate? The solution is simple: wean them off the workplace booze and cheese binges.Hints to shop assistants: “To get good work out of anyone he must be properly fed. An assistant suffering from indigestion, due to heavy meat food, cheese, and ale, cannot properly attend to business. Assistants have told me again and again that they do not have the energy to attend properly to their duties, and many have asked what they shall do to get more vigour as they fear dismissal. Parents will do well to enquire into the food served at large places of business before sending their sons and daughters there, or they may cause them to acquire the beginnings of disease which result in chronic illness or death.”Next week: life and deathlast_img read more
