After visiting his website, I got in touch with Robert Stone and exchanged a few emails… He is a reader of ArchDaily and was very excited to share his work with the readers, and I was also very excited about it after learning more about him and what is behind Rosa Muerta and other projects he has been working on in the California desert. Robert was born and raised in Palm Springs, Ca. in a decent copy of a Craig Ellwood house and across the street from a real Schindler house. After his masters degree at UC Berkeley, Robert spent over a decade in a studio in Los Angeles making experimental social-sculpture projects that were exhibited internationally. I mention this because it’s a clear influence on Rosa Muerta and Acido Dorado, two projects that came out of Robert’s passion for art, his architectural background, and his D.I.Y. punk roots: Save this picture!© Brad LansillRecommended ProductsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedInstead of looking for a client, Robert went solo to the desert to build vacation houses for rent, turning into an entrepreneur with Pretty Vacant Properties and probing that independent D.I.Y. architecture is possible. It is basically the American punk D.I.Y. approach that has engendered all contemporary independent music and film since the 1970’s. . .  now finally applied to architecture. The passion Robert puts on his work is really inspiring, specially for young architects that debate between working at some else’s practice or kick start their own firm/business. I hope to bring you more about Robert’s work in the near future. In the meanwhile, more about Rosa Muerta after the break: Scale: The house is set 4′-0« into the ground so that it’s highest point is 8′ tall and it almost looks like it is too low to be a habitable structure. The overhang at the front step is 6′-8. Once inside the ceilings are almost 10′ high. I have developed a present, local, and personal aesthetic language that I find can engage its specific physical and cultural context in more subtle and powerful ways than the more universal and abstract approaches that dominate the scene. I am well aware that it is very different than the leading edge of mainstream architecture, and I am sure that some of the things that make it resonate so strongly here in the Southern California desert also make it difficult for outsiders to fully assemble, but I am going for depth rather than breadth. To place this work among other approaches, imagine a corporeal post-modernism. . . without the irony, diagrammatic detachment or architectural tourist references. Imagine critical regionalism that works with the dirty and real cultural context rather than idealized archetypes. Imagine modernism that shows the pathology and scars accrued over a century of cultural use and misuse. Somewhere in the middle of all of this, I have found a lot of possibilities for new architecture. Save this picture!© Brad LansillThere is also in this architecture the application of a lot of lessons learned from the subject/object relationship fostered in contemporary art. This approach regrettably has no parallel in architecture today, but it makes possible a more dynamic conception of how people inhabit and perform in the space, how the wider culture can be engaged, and where meaning is located and how it is produced or discovered. Save this picture!© Brad LansillWhat I am proposing that is new, other than this particular desert modern aesthetic, is a way of working that is more exploratory in terms of meaning, personal in its inspiration, direct its execution, and meaningful to its intended audience. More than anything I hope to stake out a wider field for architecture to engage its context in more interesting and nuanced ways. This house is just one small step out into that expanded field.Project gallerySee allShow lessOrdos Hotel / EXH DesignArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekendArticles Share CopyHouses•Stonyford, United States Year:  2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/49230/rosa-muerta-robert-stone Clipboard “COPY” Area:  1300 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/49230/rosa-muerta-robert-stone Clipboard Architects: Robert Stone Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Cyber-dissident accused of illegal possession of state secrets is denied right to see lawyer

by ,

first_imgFor more information about Huang News ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders deplores the way the police in Chengdu (in the central province of Sichuan) have been treating human rights activist Huang Qi since his arrest on 10 July for “illegal possession of state secrets,” a charge that carries a possible three-year prison sentence. The police have been refusing him his right to be visited by his lawyer.“By preventing Huang from seeing his lawyer, the Chinese authorities are yet again demonstrating that nothing has changed in China as regards free expression,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Huang is the 49th cyber-dissident to be imprisoned in China for trying to promote democracy and freedom of expression online. We urge the authorities to free him pending his trial.”The Chengdu police told his family on 10 July that the results of their investigation had already been passed to the prosecutor’s office, which now has three months to take a decision.Huang’s wife, Zeng Li, told Reporters Without Borders: “I am very upset about my husband and I do not understand what is pushing the authorities to bring this charge against him. All Huang did was report what things were like for the victims after the Sichuan earthquake.”Huang’s lawyer, Mo Shaoping, contacted the Chengdu police on 18 July to request his right to visit, but it was refused. Mo said formal notification of Huang’s arrest had been provided to his mother earlier on 18 July but the notification was not clear. Every since the 12 May earthquake in Sichuan, the 44-year-old Huang had been posting articles on his website, 64Tianwang, criticising the way the relief was being organised. He wrote on 20 May: “The reports we are seeing are biased. In reality, it is very difficult for NGOs to deliver food aid. They are obliged to go through government channels. The government is using its propaganda to portray itself as a saviour to little avail. Few citizens trust the government because of the corruptions scandals that already occurred during similar disasters in the past.”Huang originally created his website, www.64tianwang.com, as bulletin board for messages about missing persons. Reporters Without Borders awarded him its Cyber-Freedom Prize in 2004 for his online defence of free expression and human rights. A petition for his release has circulated in Chengdu and other regions hit by the earthquake.Huang spent five years in Nanchong high security prison (in the northeast of Sichuan province) after being arrested on 3 June 2000, the eve of the 11th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. He was charged with subversion under articles 103 and 105 of the criminal code for posting articles about the massacre by exiled dissidents on his website.He has serious health problems as a result the violence he underwent during his first spell in prison, when the authorities refused to provide him with appropriate treatment.Copy of the indictment of Huang that was issued by the Chengdu police at 3 p.m. (Beijing time) on 18 July Help by sharing this information Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes RSF_en Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figurescenter_img to go further July 21, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-dissident accused of illegal possession of state secrets is denied right to see lawyer News News Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China Reporters Without Borders deplores the way the police in Chengdu (in the central province of Sichuan) have been treating human rights activist Huang Qi since his arrest on 10 July for “illegal possession of state secrets,” a charge that carries a possible three-year prison sentence.

Photo finish: End of an era as Olympus sells camera division

by ,

first_imgIt’s the end of an era: Japan’s Olympus said Wednesday it is selling its struggling camera division to focus on medical equipment — now the major portion of the storied firm’s business.Olympus has been in the camera business since 1936, when it launched a product using the “Zuiko” lens, but it has struggled along with industry rivals as demand for traditional cameras declines, with consumers relying on increasingly sophisticated smartphone cameras.The company said it has signed a memo of understanding to transfer its camera business to investment fund Japan Industrial Partners, with the goal of sealing a final deal by the end of September. Olympus has, however, seen success in the medical equipment field, controlling a whopping 70 percent share of the global endoscope market.The firm’s decision comes as many of its domestic, traditional rivals including Fujifilm and Canon also aggressively expand in the medical equipment sector, under pressure from the same decline in camera sales. Topics :center_img The value of the sale was not specified.The firm has produced a number of famous products, including the half-size camera Olympus Pen, the world’s first micro-cassette tape recorder Zuiko Pearlcorder, and the Olympus OM-D series, a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.The company said it had tried to cut costs and develop profitable, high-end lenses to survive in an increasingly difficult digital camera market.”Despite all such efforts, Olympus’s Imaging business recorded operating losses for three consecutive fiscal years up to the term ended in March 2020,” the company said.last_img read more

Champions League: Bayern crush Lyon to set up PSG final

first_imgSerge Gnabry bagged a brace on Wednesday night as Bayern Munich advanced to the final of the Uefa Champions League on Wednesday night with a 3-0 victory over Lyon.The Germans were under the cosh for the first 15 minutes of the encounter at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon. Lyon skipper Memphis Depay had the first chance four minutes into the one-off semi-final.After eluding the Bayern centre-backs, the Netherlands international scooted into the penalty area, rounded the Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer but scuffed his shot the wrong side of the right hand post.The same stick came to Neuer’s rescue 13 minutes later after Karl Toko Ekambi was released down the right.Alphonso Davies blocked his initial shot but the 27-year-old Cameroon international took the rebound, cut inside but his shot struck the upright.That was as good as it got for Rudi Garcia’s men. A minute later they were 1-0 down.Serge Gnabry picked up Joshua Kimmich’s chipped pass on the right of the Lyon penalty area.The striker veered left along the edge of the box past two defenders before unleashing a left foot shot that flashed high over Anthony Lopes into the top left hand corner of the Lyon goalGnabry’s second came on the cusp of half-time.Ivan Perisic wriggled free down the left and squared for Robert Lewandowski. The normally lethal Poland international managed to botch his tap-in but it rebounded against Lopes into Gnabry’s path.He slotted in gleefully.Lyon had the chance to regain a foothold in the match 15 minutes after the pause but Ekambi failed to steer the ball past Neuer after being sent clear by Houssem Aouar.The Germans suffered few scares afterwards and Lewandowski added the third in the 87th minute to seal the victory and set up a mouthwatering final against Paris Saint-Germain on August 23 at the Estadio da Luz.RelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says “I am very proud of the team,” said Lyon sporting director Juninho after the match. “We played against a great team.

We didn’t do that.”Bayern, European champions on five occasions, will be hunting their third trophy of the season after claiming the Bundesliga crown and the German Cup.PSG, winners of Ligue 1, the French Cup and the League Cup, are seeking their fourth title of the campaign but their first European Cup.Tags: Bayern MunichGerman CupKarl Toko EkambiLyonManuel NeuerMemphis DepayParis Saint GermainRobert LewandowskiSerge GhabryUEFA Champions Leaguelast_img read more

UK fund for low-carbon projects in SA

by ,

first_img29 February 2012The British High Commission has launched a £1-million (R11.9-million) fund for 2012/13 to support projects in South Africa that are linked to prosperity, trade and low carbon growth.According to the high commission, the money is part of a global fund which seeks to build prosperity “by increasing exports and investments, opening markets, ensuring access to resources and energy security, and promoting sustainable global growth, including avoiding climate change”.“Global security is underpinned by sustainable growth, higher levels of employment, rising standards of living, and greater regional/international trade,” the commission said, adding that climate change constituted one the biggest threats to global security.It was therefore in the UK’s interest to promote open and stable markets and economies, tackle barriers to economic development, and support a global transition to a low carbon economy, the commission said.The commission invited organisations to submit project proposals that met the criteria outlined in its Prosperity Fund strategy (see “related documents”).Concept bids should be sent to [email protected] no later than 2 March 2012.
