Contemporaine is a 28-unit condominium building located on a corner lot in the River North area of urban Chicago. The building consists of an eleven-story residential tower and a four-story retail and parking base. The sculptural quality of the tower and the articulation of its functional parts work to mediate the building to the varying scales of the surrounding context.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyThe mass of the tower is broken down by a series of slots scored down the façade with small cantilevered balconies. The east façade undulates to further break the mass as well as to provide more opportunities for views of the city skyline. Two concrete shear walls and the plane of the roof frame the design and provide a distinctive profile from Wells Street.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyTo bring the base to a pedestrian scale the structure of the parking garage is exposed with floor-to-ceiling glass between the floor slabs, similar to the tower above. On the north side of the building the dynamic expression of the sloped ramps leading to the upper parking levels adds relief and movement to the otherwise rectilinear structure.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyAt the entry corner the erosion of the mass, the projection of the cantilevered balconies above, and a 45-foot column, all reinforce the urban energy of the Contemporaine’s surroundings.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyA narrow slot separates the base and tower, allowing necessary transfers of the building systems as the floor programs change from residential to parking. This detail also provides an aesthetic dialogue between the two elements and allows for a reading of the building as a series of combined parts of varying scales.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyThe top of the tower is sculpted to offer large terraces for the penthouse units and a gesture to the surrounding skyscrapers.Typical floors at Contemporaine provide up to four condominiums with two and three bedrooms plans that can be combined to allow for larger units. Each unit has at least one private outdoor balcony. Unit sizes range from approximately 950 square feet to 2700 square feet.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyThe condos offer open floor plans with large expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass allowing natural light and dynamic views of the downtown skyline. Four penthouses on the top floors feature living spaces with 20 to 32-foot glass walls to further capture the daylight and the views.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyThe building stands out from most of its contemporaries in the city. Through simple manipulations of modern materials—the sculpted mass, dynamic resident entry, and the texture of the window mullions—the building makes a strong statement on the cityscape.Save this picture!© Steinkamp / Ballogg PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessHappy 103rd Birthday Oscar NiemeyerArticlesAD Round Up: Libraries Part VIArticlesProject locationAddress:Chicago, Illinois, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

Gabonese regulator bans RFI reporter from working for two months

first_imgNews Receive email alerts August 23, 2019 Gabonese regulator bans RFI reporter from working for two months GabonAfrica Condemning abuses Freedom of expression Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that Gabon’s High Authority for Communication (HAC) has banned Radio France Internationale correspondent Yves-Laurent Goma from practicing journalism for two months for violating a taboo about referring to President Ali Bongo’s health. RSF_en Help by sharing this information Crédit : Yves-Laurent Goma (Facebook) News News Gabonese journalist could spend New Year’s Eve in prison The country’s media regulator, the HAC has repeatedly imposed summary sanctions on journalists for broaching the subject of the president’s health, which has been off limits ever since he suffered a stroke ten months ago.Goma, who is also the editor of the news website Gabon Actu, is banned from working for two months from yesterday because of his coverage of an Independence Day military parade on 17 August, at which President Bongo made his first public appearance in front of Gabonese people since his stroke.In an article headlined “Gabon’s Independence Day’s parade dominated by Ali Bongo’s presence,” Goma noted that “at no point did the president stand up, as he formerly did, in order to greet the passage of his army’s units in front of the tribune.”The article was “inaccurate and malicious, questioning the president’s physical health,” the HAC said, imposing its ban – which cannot be appealed – without giving Goma any chance to defend himself.“The HAC has once again used its prerogatives in a completely disproportionate manner with the same aim of protecting the president,” RSF’s Africa desk said. “We call for this sanction to be lifted at once, because it constitutes yet another unwarranted restriction on press freedom by an authority that is supposed to defend it.”In November 2018, the HAC suspended the newspaper L’Aube for three months and banned its editor, Orca Boudiandza Mouelé, from working for six months because of an article about President Bongo’s lengthy hospitalization after the stroke. In June of this year, the newspaper Fraternité was banned for a month over article questioning Bongo’s ability to govern since the stroke.In a press release in June, RSF described the HAC as the Gabonese media’s “executioner” because of the arbitrary sanctions it has repeatedly imposed since its creation by government decree in February 2018. The HAC needs a complete overhaul so that journalists are allowed to serve the public interest by addressing all subjects, even the most politically sensitive ones, RSF said.Gabon is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. center_img January 24, 2020 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more to go further Follow the news on Gabon GabonAfrica Condemning abuses Freedom of expression Weekly seized from Gabon’s newsstands Organisation Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa December 31, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

Roscoe will take on the new role on February 4 and report directly to Acting Director Joseph Otting. Roscoe currently serves as Special Assistant to the President in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel. The FHFA statement noted that his work has helped shape the economic, trade, and regulatory arm of the Trump Administration. Prior to joining the White House, Roscoe served in senior roles in the private sector and state government, including at the Ohio Treasurer’s office. “I am honored by this appointment and look forward to working with Acting Director Otting and the highly respected FHFA team,” Roscoe said.Commenting on the appointment, Otting said that Roscoe brings to the position “solid judgment that comes from working at a very high level across all ​branches of government.” “John is a dynamic and collaborative leader with a track record of success. I look forward to working with John to carry out the mission of the FHFA,” Otting said. The latest appointment comes at a time when the FHFA has been in the news because of Otting’s remarks on ending the conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. As reported in DS News earlier, according to a recording of his remarks obtained by Politico, Otting told FHFA employees that they would be seeing communication from the White House and the Treasury over the next two to four weeks that “really sets a direction for what the future of housing will be in the U.S. and what the FHFA’s part will be.”The remarks set the share prices of both the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) soaring as investors became more hopeful that Fannie and Freddie could soon be out of government conservatorship.Housing Finance Reforms are also on top of the Senate Banking Committee’s agenda. The Committee will assess these and other proposals to determine how we can fix the flawed system, establish appropriate levels of taxpayer protection, preserve the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, increase competition among mortgage guarantors and promote access to affordable housing,” said Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.

Powerful moments at the United State of Women summit

first_imgRodin Eckenroth/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — When former first lady Michelle Obama took the stage at this year’s United State of Women summit in Los Angeles, the crowd erupted in cheers so loud that Tracee Ellis Ross joked from the stage: “Are you gonna be able to hear us if you keep screaming?”This was the start of a conversation between Obama and Ross, who are friends in real life. It was the start of the most highly anticipated speaking event at the USOW, following a day filled with high profile speakers including Jane Fonda, Valerie Jarrett, Tina Tchen, Aly Raisman and more.The women spoke about everything from education to childhood memories to what the future holds for the next generation of women.When Ross asked Obama, “Do you think there’s a way that we can help everyone dream in a more limitless way that is not gender based?”Obama answered that she’s “concerned about us as women.”“When the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead. I mean, that says something about where we are,” Obama said to a full crowd at the Shrine Auditorium. “If we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men, if we’re still doing that today, if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a women could be our president, compared to what?… That’s on us.”They spoke about how culture “eggs” women on to get married, have the dream wedding and have kids. When Ross said she missed that stage, Obama responded, “Good for you.”“Tracee Ellis Ross must not be happy because she’s not married with kids.”“Look where I’m sitting!?” Ross replied to a cheering crowd.“I think if we want our daughters to dream bigger than we did then we have more work to do,” Obama said. “So many of us have gotten ourselves to the table but were still too grateful to be at the table to shake it up.”Another incredibly powerful moment at the summit was when four athletes who all confronted disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar in court earlier this year took the stage as “sister survivors.” Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Tiffany Lopez and Jeanette Antolin took the USOW stage side by side after being introduced by Sophia Bush, who said it was “an honor to bear witness to their experience.”Raisman spoke first, telling the crowd that “speaking out is never easy. Each time I share my story I relive my trauma.”She told the cheering crowd, “If we do not keep up the fight, sadly, history is likely to repeat itself. This problem is bigger than Nassar. The #MeToo movement is not just in gymnastics and Hollywood — it is everywhere.”Her powerful speech was followed by Tiffany Lopez, who first reported Nassar’s abuse in 1998.“My voice is no longer silent and I’m taking back my power,” she said. “If I had been heard and believed 20 years ago, the women standing beside me — all of the 265 young women who have now barely come forward as victims — would have been spared from the horrors of sexual abuse.”Antolin followed Lopez’s speech and delivered her message of empowering children: “We need to teach our kids that their voice matters. It will be heard and we will listen.”Wieber was the last of the athletes to speak out and received rounds of applause when she said: “It ends with us … you are not alone and your time is now. Speak your truth. Hold your abusers accountable and regain your power.”The memorable moments continued at the summit when actress Jane Fonda and Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, took the stage at the USOW together to speak about mass criminalization. Fonda started her speech off by saying, “When Trump was elected and the toxic bedrock of white supremacy in this country was exposed, I realized something … the lens through which I have been looking at race is too shallow — so I’m studying.”She went on to say that “it takes more than empathy. It takes intention, to even begin to comprehend what people of color, no matter their class, face every day.”Cullors followed Fonda’s speech by praising her and telling the auditorium “every white woman in the audience, please take heed.”They both spoke about disproportionally high incarceration rates in African American communities and racism in America and advocated ending the war on drugs and the construction of new prisons.Many of the powerhouse women who spoke at the United State of Women conference told “GMA” that they wanted women to leave the summit feeling not just inspired, but motivated by all of the memorable moments and speeches.“I hope that women leave with action items,” Sophia Bush said. “Not just inspiration. There’s big inspiration here, but one of the things I’m always so impressed by at this summit is that you walk away knowing what to do next, what the steps are that you can take to activate yourself, to activate your community to create the kind of change you want to create and I really hope that it’s the kind of day that inspires people to walk the walk even further when you walk out of this building.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
