Portraiture The Texas Hill House was developed for a young New York City couple as a retreat from the demands of urban life. It is located in Craryville, New York, a town at the base of the Berkshires in central Columbia County. The house is a portrait of the clients’ disparate experiences working and traveling extensively throughout Europe, China, Japan and South America. One born and bred in New York and the other a Costa Rican national of Asian descent, both brought very different aesthetic traditions to bear. Save this picture!The Natural The form of the house directly responds to its site conditions and orientation. While the Texas Hill house is located on twenty-five acres, only eight are practically useable. A federally protected wet land dominates the remainder of the property, which will be developed into a private “park” and will be registered as a “Conservation Easement” through the Columbia County Land Conservancy (www.clctrust.org/home.htm). Save this picture!All of the rooms in the house orient toward the open and primarily glass side of the home facing southwest. A ten foot eave cantilevers off this façade, protecting the interior from heat gain in the summer when the sun is higher in the sky. Additionally, a stand of trees forward of this elevation was pruned of its conifers leaving primarily deciduous trees to support heat regulation. In the summer months, leafed trees filter the direct afternoon sunlight. In the winter when the sun is low and the trees bare, the afternoon sun warms the interior to reduce heating loads. Save this picture!The primary roofing and siding material for the project was selected for its recycled content, durability and affordability, not to mention its stunning medium grey color. Zalmag is a galvanized coating on steel made of 95% recycled material consisting of 11% aluminum, 3% magnesium and 86% zinc. These panels are 100% recyclable, have a service expectancy of at least a lifetime, and when compared to traditional galvanized coatings, Zalmag has a 10X plus corrosion resistant factor. Save this picture!The windows throughout Texas Hill are Loewen, which is the first major North American window and door manufacturer to receive Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain of custody certification (SW-COC-1739) for Douglas Fir wood used in its fenestration products. 88% of the Douglas Fir purchased by Loewen comes from forestland that is Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified. In addition to SFI certification, many of the Douglas Fir suppliers in Canada are ISO 14001 and/or CSA certified. Save this picture!American Skin and Bones Geodetic design is a method in which structure and skin function independently. Often used for aeronautical construction, the geodetic process forms multiple stringers into an aerodynamic, basket-like configuration. This redundant arrangement, light, strong, and rigid, can survive localized damage without catastrophic failure. A non-load-bearing skin completes the aerodynamic shell. Save this picture!American wood frame construction can be viewed as geodetic design, such that exterior surface functions autonomously from structural elements. The Texas Hill house nods to this American tradition. A standard and locally available truss fabrication technology achieves the primary long span roof structure. Since the mid-seventies in the US, digital information design has interfaced with ordinary manufacturing techniques in an industry dedicated to the mass production of residential roof trusses. Save this picture!Although the building’s engineered structure establishes its unique expressiveness, its skin suppresses structural detail, which reveals itself only in the atypically deep eave cantilevers and the broad internal span. The empty cavity of the loft, enclosed by the roof truss and the two long bearing walls, is undifferentiated, neutral space. Like the human rib cage, this loft functions as a structural shell, containing and protecting the living spaces within. Non-bearing partitions specify the program for internal usage. Save this picture!Thinking Globally Acting Locally Minka (民家), literally “house of the people”, is a category of traditional private residences in Japan with two major classifications: farm houses (Noka 農家) and sub-urban houses (Machiya 町屋). The design of Machiya maintains privacy from the public thoroughfair, yet simultaneously orients toward the farmland or gardens beyond. Whereas the front of the typical Machiya is almost entirely closed to the street, the rear of the home opens up to the landscape through the use of sliding shoji screens. Save this picture!A base skeletal structure of the roof, walls, and support columns is the central component of the Minka’s construction. Wooden columns and crossbeams intricately interlock without the use of nails. Internal walls are not fixed, but consist of sliding wood lattice doors or wood-and-paper screens called fusuma. Like geodetic design, non-structural elements give specificity to a neutral space. Save this picture!Given the wet lands that encompass the property, Texas Hill had to be located quite close to the country road. To maintain privacy and to diminish the structure’s apparent scale from the road, the entrance façade, which faces this approach, is low and primarily closed. Two twelve foot wide sliding louvered doors that screen full height glazed areas allow light and air to penetrate this façade while retaining visual separation from the road. Save this picture!The Fourth Wall The term “fourth wall” signifies the boundary between the fictional and the real. Originating from Bertolt Brecht’s theory of epic theatre, the phrase, the fourth wall, describes the suspension of disbelief between a fictional work and an audience. In theatre, “breaking the fourth wall” generally refers to a character showing his/her awareness of the audience, thus accentuating the audience’s recognition of the character’s fictional existence. Save this picture!The front and back “porches” of the Texas Hill house frame the entirety of those elevations, creating a proscenium, frame or phenomenal membrane through which one views or moves between nature and the domestic zone. These sharp and absolute “fourth walls” dramatize these transitions as both real and artificial. The rear or garden façade emphasizes this shifting experience by opening up to the view beyond, offering a change in scale that responds to the landscape, and that becomes the fourth wall of an outdoor “room” bound on three sides by the green walls of the forest. Save this picture!Passive Aggressive The history of built form can be viewed as a dialog between the romantic, accommodating structure and the internally logical, platonic one, between the passive and the aggressive object. Interestingly, both perspectives of this dialog can find expression in a single passive aggressive structure. The Greek Stoa, Friedrich Schinkel’s Altes Museum and Palazzo dei Congressi, simultaneously possess an aggressive, platonic form and a passive, dependant role in relation to the Agoura, the Lustgarten, and Piazza John Fitzgerald Kennedy, respectively. Similarly, Casa Malaparte functions as both an object within a dramatic landscape and as a mere platform from which the landscape can be viewed. Luytens’ Tigbourne Court presents a perfectly symmetrical, landscape-dominating form to the arriving visitor, only to decompose into a romantic and asymmetrical composition on its garden side. Save this picture!Texas Hill plays the same game. Its perfectly symmetrical façade offers a readily discernable object, a shed structure, upon arrival. Its logic breaks up, however, into a syncopated asymmetry under the pressure of programmatic idiosyncrasy at the rear façade. It is both an aggressive object and a passive back drop, or “fourth wall”, for the drama of the natural. Save this picture!Synthesis The design of Texas Hill consciously integrates oppositions: of Eastern and Western traditions, built space and natural space, symmetry and asymmetry, and of material, while thwarting resolution in favor of an open ended, shifting dialog. Through its reinterpretation of historical strategies through the lens of contemporary, sustainable materials and construction methods, a unique phenomenology infuses the site, one that forces the visitor to encounter the contrasting elements in its design. Ultimately, Texas Hill is a synthesis, whose individual parts, both physical and conceptual, coexist as a portrait of its owners’ personal, globalized aesthetic.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBrittlebush / Simon De AgueroArticlesSports Pavilion / Filipe Brandão and Nuno SanchesArticles Share CopyHouses•Copake Lake, United States “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

Chicago Streetz Party: Fists up for Fred Hampton, Sr.

first_imgFred Hampton Sr.Fred Hampton Sr., a dynamic leader in the Black Panther Party, was born August 30, 1948, and was assassinated in Chicago in 1969 by the U.S. government in one of its infamous Cointelpro raids. He was 21 years old.Every year on Aug. 30, his son, Chairman Fred Jr., throws the Streetz Party, a celebration of his father’s life and work.Fred Hampton Sr. was chair of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party and deputy chair of the national BPP. During his short tenure on Chicago’s West Side, he built the party up as a powerful revolutionary organization that successfully implemented BPP’s survival programs and political education classes while uniting Black, Puerto Rican and white street organizations into a “Rainbow Coalition.”Illinois State’s Attorney Ed Hanrahan and Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley colluded with the FBI to carry out covert Cointelpro actions against the BPP.  A Chicago Police Department death squad broke in on Hampton asleep in his Monroe Street apartment in the early morning of Dec. 4, 1969, and slaughtered him and Defense Captain Mark Clark. Hampton would have been 68 this year.As in years past, the Streetz Party began with a silent salute, arms raised, fists clenched, at Ground Zero, the location of Hampton and Clark’s martyrdom. Speaking after the salute were Comrade Mother Akua Njeri (Chairman Fred Sr.’s partner) and Black Panther Party veterans Stan McKinney and Harold Bell.Chairman Fred Jr. shared his thoughts on the legacy of the party:“We coming up on the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, October 15 next month — one of the most revolutionary organizations the world has witnessed. And I appreciate the platform, the politics the Black Panther Party provided us. I came up in [a climate] deprived of such an organization as the Black Panther Party — where the only options in life were to become a Boy Scout or a banger. You had to suit up and boot up to join corporate America, or suit up and boot up and be some sort of aspiring Black gangster.“Now, if that’s your cup of tea, so be it. However, the Black Panther Party gave us the lights. We want to build up the Black Panther Party Cubs so there’s not another generation that comes up deprived of such organizations as that. An organization that turned the communities into classrooms.“One of the programs that I got a real thing about is the triple ‘C’ — that’s Children, Community and Cubs. We have the most disenfranchised neighborhood and we go out there and we correlate to the Black Panther Party Free Breakfast Program. A lot of people don’t see the significance of the Free Breakfast Program. There was even internal struggles in the Black Panther Party from certain forces saying, ‘Man, what’s the point about this? What’s the significance of the survival programs?’“I hear people talk about the youth, but they say it in an abstract type of way. I’m learning more and more through my life, more and more through the work. Correlating to what Frederick Douglass said: It’s easier to raise children as opposed to repairing broken adults. A lot of what people call relationship problems are not relationship problems, they are unresolved childhood problems that people have. And organizationally, I see it all the time. And it impacts every aspect of our community, and the state exploits that. I mean, we all damaged goods. All of us. Anyone who says they not damaged, they really fucked up. Real talk.“But to be able to take that, and to understand, there must be a politic and a structure to gauge it and range it. But not with this abstract, delusional thought that once you have a conversation with an individual, you give them some green juice [and] you gonna cleanse all their past damage away.“We must acknowledge we have contradictions, and acknowledge it on our terms, so the state can’t exploit it and make it antagonistic, y’all. And I cannot stress this enough, the contributions that [the Black Panther Party], this organization, these forces, provided for our people, it can’t be told into words.”The celebration marched from Ground Zero to The Wall, a Rebel Díaz Arts Collective mural of Chairman Fred Sr. at Madison and California. There the Streetz Party continued in the parking lot with DJ’s, a BBQ and free haircuts for youth.Later in the evening in the South Side neighborhood of Washington Park, there were panel discussions that included “Cointelpro Then and Now” with Chicago State University African-American Studies professor Dr. Kelly Harris and Chairman Fred. Another panel, “Police Terrorism/People’s Pain,” featured Comrade Mother Akua Njeri; Dorothy Holmes, mother of Ronald Johnson; Samir Rice, mother of Tamir Rice; and Panzy Rice, mother of Dakota Bright. The final panel was “Forward to the 50th!” with Black Panther Party veterans Comrade Mother Akua Njeri, Stan McKinney, Harold Bell and Henry Nesbitt.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

PUSD Hasn’t Ruled Out Online-Only Instruction as COVID-19 Surges in L.A. County

County By BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, July 9, 2020 | 1:48 pm After previously planning to open with a hybrid system of in-person instruction and distance learning, the Pasadena Unified School District is also considering the possibility of online-only instruction as it awaits new county guidelines amid a surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.The district had previously announced plans to open August 17 with a mixture of both in-person classes and online instruction, along with an option for an entirely online curriculum for parents not yet comfortable sending their kids back to school.That announcement came just hours before Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered health measures including the closure of all indoor dining areas in Los Angeles County and elsewhere, citing a significant spike in COVID-19 infections.In a private phone call with superintendents, L.A. County Director of Public Health said every school district in the county needed to be prepared to begin the year with 100% distance learning, should it be determined safe for schools to reopen when the time comes, the Los Angeles Times reported.The PUSD is now waiting on further word from county health and education officials regarding how to proceed, PUSD Board Member Scott Phelps said.The district has been working on building an online-only program, but it was previously only meant to be one option available to parents.“So we try to accommodate everybody in some way,” Phelps said. “One-hundred percent online was because certain parents were fearful of reopening. And we also wanted more in-person schooling because we had a number of families where both parents were working.”Ultimately, the virus will make the decision.In the time being, “We are considering lots of things like the closed sites being used for teachers to come in — only teachers — and do the online instruction,” he said.Pasadena’s Public Health Department was also involved in the conversation.“We are working closely with our schools to support development of their plans for the start of the new school year, by providing science-based public health recommendations,” Pasadena Director of Public Health Dr. Ying-Ying Goh said. “Schools will need to have flexibility in their plans, because the COVID-19 case burden is changing week by week in the region, and is currently increasing.”“Schools are vital to the well-being of our community, so we want them to find options for educating and supporting students in the best ways possible, that will still keep COVID-19 risk as low as possible,” Goh said.Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools Debra Duardo said districts across the county were watching to see what path the pandemic would take, and how it will affect schools in the fall.“We want to do everything possible to bring students back to school as safely as possible,” she said. “Districts have been planning to reopen since the day they closed, and we know our young people learn best in the classroom. However, it is important to acknowledge that planning for reopening is complicated. Our plans must abide by public health orders. Our models must meet the needs of all students, including their mental health and emotional wellbeing.”She acknowledged the significant challenges created by the uncertainty.“School districts are faced with difficult decisions as we await final guidelines from the Department of Public Health. We are grappling with financial uncertainty and concerns about paying for required health and safety equipment, even as supplies arrive from the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services,” she said.“While the future is uncertain, we want every family, student, educator and school employee in Los Angeles County to know our 80 school districts are focused on continuing to educate and support our young people while complying with public health guidelines,” Duardo said.
