Kharand-House is located in Isfahan, Iran. In Isfahanian dialect “Kharand” means yard. A courtyard house is the principle type of traditional houses in Isfahan and Iran. Based on new municipal policies and restricted rules, a yard is one of the most fundamental elements missed in the today’s Iranian’s houses, especially in upper levels of buildings. In this project, we try to redefine the main character of a traditional yard in a new context. In addition to providing green space, the traditional Iranian yard has some special characters, such as the presence of water and privacy. Water plays a prominent role inasmuch as it provides ample condition by increasing moisture, visual quality and a pleasure sound of falling water. Such factors create a perfect traditional yard.Save this picture!Diagram 01Save this picture!Diagram 02 Kharand-House has three levels. The ground floor has a good connection with the main yard and there is a water fountain next to the west wall and a pool exactly in front of living room which improves space quality. The first floor has a vast trace in front of living room and a linear flowerbox ahead of master bedroom. On the second floor, a noticeable volume of the main body of the house is omitted to provide a real yard. The project was encountered by a contrast factor. It needs to provide a privacy yard protected from outer views and obtain the required amount of light, fresh air and amp view for users at the same time. Therefore, the decision was made that the yard split into half. One part with less level of privacy located in front of the living room and another with more privacy in front of the staircase.Save this picture!© Sadaf MontazeriSave this picture!© Sadaf MontazeriSave this picture!© Sadaf MontazeriA sloping face is added to provide privacy and suitable shadow for use during day. The sloping face is utilized to avoid reducing amount of light the living room and other part of the yard get. Furthermore, a water fountain set ahead of the living room, some flowerboxes spread to give a perception of a real yard, some facilities such as a sink, fireplace and bench were placed. On the roof some timbers were set that can be covered by a mat if they want to use it as a holding party with an overview to the scenery. All of these efforts have done to heighten special experience of the user and redefine the presence of yard in all levels of the Kharand-House.           Save this picture!Section A-ASave this picture!Section B-BProject gallerySee allShow lessA House Near the Great Wall / Jin LeiSelected Projects1.8M Width House / YUUA Architects & AssociatesSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Lunawood, Knauf, Akpa, Movahedi brick, Taha factory Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Photographs:  Sadaf Montazeri, Sayed Hossein Hasheminia Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897582/kharand-house-hamed-tadayon-mohammad-amin-davarpanah Clipboard Iran Area:  781 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Student Union cracks down on offensive Bop themes

first_img The SU also warn against cultural appropriation in bops, stating that events with themes such as ‘Cowboys and Indians’ or ‘Arabian Nights’ often leave BAME or international students feeling excluded and mocked. The policy states that: “highly sexualised themes can have distressing impacts on marginalised communities” and highlights the problematic nature of gendered bop themes which can leave nonbinary students feeling alienated, as well putting both male and female students in “a highly objectified and/or sexualised role”. However, the policy does not seek to ban all events which involve drag themes; the policy also notes that: “students should not be restricted from dressing in drag in a way which expresses themselves or to demonstrate admiration for individuals. If handled sensitively, themes that involve drag have the potential to be friendly and positive for all students.” Róisín McCallion, Vice President of Welfare and Equal Opportunities at the SU told Cherwell that the council had shown “ongoing support” for the policy and added: “whilst I have been in role, we have never received any backlash [for the policy]” ‘Fox hunts’ and ‘pimps and hoes’ were also labelled as potentially offensive themes. Bop themes which involve drag are also addressed by the policy. Regarding college bops, the SU states that: “attendees shouldn’t seek to dress as another gender for the purposes of ridicule or to make light of the experiences of people of that gender.” The policy was brought in through motion at student council in Trinity term of 2011, and was updated and renewed in 2014 and 2017. However, papers like The Sun and The Telegraph have been reporting on the policy more recently. This has sparked controversy from the public, with one individual commenting “lefties, sucking the joy out of everyday life”, and another “leisure is being destroyed by these snowflakes who thinks everything offends people” on The Sun’s post. However, the policy page is headed by the statement that: “This advice does not seek to repress student self-expression through the clothing they choose to wear but is here to help everyone feel able to have a good time”. The Oxford Student Union’s Inclusive Policy for Events has received media attention for banning offensive Bop themes, such as ‘Vicars and Tarts’ or ‘Cowboys and Indians’. last_img read more

Power co-generation comes to Harvard-owned Doubletree by Hilton

first_imgAn environmentally friendly co-generation system was recently installed at the Doubletree by Hilton in Boston. Co-generation, also known as combined heat and power, is an environmentally friendly way to generate electricity, because the heat created during that process is captured and put to good use – such as heating a building. In a conventional power plant the heat generated during the creation of electricity is dispersed into the environment and simply lost.Harvard University, which owns the Doubletree by Hilton, is always looking for ways to help meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals. So, when a conventional hot water boiler at the hotel needed to be replaced, it became an opportunity to reduce the environmental footprint of the property. The result was a power purchase agreement with American DG to install and operate a co-generation system. “We’re very excited about this system, which will generate enough energy to supply 10 – 15% of the building’s annual electricity requirement,” said Joe Gregory, assistant director for sustainability at Harvard Real Estate Services. In addition, the heat generated through the on-site electricity production is used to meet the building’s base load (space heating, hotel laundry and domestic hot water) and is then supplemented by other heating equipment as required.This arrangement makes sense from both fiscal and sustainability perspectives. Rather than incurring the capital expense of purchasing a new boiler, Harvard now purchases efficiently generated electricity and heat from American DG. “Because the electricity created this way is cleaner than that supplied through the grid, it will reduce the hotel’s production of greenhouse gas by at least 175 MTCDEs/year,” said Ted Mayer, assistant vice president for Harvard’s Hospitality and Dining Services. “This is a win for Harvard and a win for the environment.”last_img read more

State Treasurer Issues Statement on Need for Congress to Act Now

first_imgState Treasurer Issues Statement on Need for Congress to Act Now I understand that Vermonters are angry about the financial mess we are currently facing and not sure who to trust about what the appropriate government response should be. There is plenty of blame to be shared for the dilemma we are in. That can come later. Right now we need a bipartisan agreement in Congress to pass a comprehensive bill that will help to stabilize the financial markets sooner rather than later. While it makes good sense to craft the proposal in a way that has the best chance of benefiting American citizens, hopefully phased in and as an investment, not just a bailout, I’m concerned the longer it takes to do so, the more serious the recession we face. Holding out for a perfect bill is risky business. The gyrations in the stock markets are not what worry me most. It is the less visible, for now, inability of mainstream companies, non-profits, and municipalities to borrow working capital at realistic rates, if at all, to carry on basic activities. Short-term interest rates for working capital have more than quadrupled in the last few weeks. The municipal bond market is, for all intents, not operating. These challenges are certainly going to affect jobs, housing, student loans, and more. We are likely to find that the distance between Wall Street and Main Street is shorter than many think. In just the past few days, Massachusetts has been unable to secure the full amount of short-term borrowing needed for local school aid, even at high interest rates. States are shelving bond issues that are intended to finance infrastructure projects. Businesses are accessing lines of credit not intended for routine operating funds. Pension funds cannot escape significant losses when global markets are sinking; those losses will mean higher tax-supported contributions. State revenues are certain to suffer further, with the resulting burden being transferred to Vermont citizens. Nobody should be under the impression that any proposal passed by Congress will turn the serious economic situation around immediately. However, I believe a timely response to stabilize the credit markets by improving access to capital is a critical step on the road to economic recovery.– Jeb Spaulding, Vermont State Treasurer -end-last_img read more

Retailers, legislators meet to discuss Vermont’s first-in-the-nation credit card law

first_imgToday, Vermont legislators, retailers, and representatives from the Vermont Retail Association and Vermont Grocers Association met at the Elmore Store in Elmore, Vermont, to discuss the importance of Vermont s new credit card law. Passed unanimously by both legislative bodies in Vermont, the law, S.138, prohibits abusive practices by credit card companies. The law will take effect on January 1, 2011. It is the first and only such state law in the country.The Elmore Store was a fitting location for the gathering as Kathy Miller, who owns the store with husband Warren, has been supporting credit card legislation at the state and federal level for years. She first testified in Washington, D.C. in 2006 at the request of Senator Patrick Leahy and testified again in 2009 at the request of Representative Peter Welch. Kathy Miller stated, ‘the passage of this Vermont legislation will definitely help small stores like ours and is an important first step in the fight for reasonable and fair transaction fees to storekeepers and our consumers.”Vermont Speaker of the House Shap Smith, a key supporter of the new law, said The bargaining power that Visa and MasterCard have is greatly out of balance with that of our small merchants. This law shows once again that Vermont can lead the way in assisting small business.This event caps many months of hard work by the legislature, the Vermont Retail Association and the Vermont Grocers Association to draft and support the law. It will be a boon to retailers, who have long suffered under the credit card companies coercive practices. Merchants often lose money on small purchases made with a credit card because the fee paid for processing the credit card exceeds any profit margin.Key elements of the new bill:· Allows merchants to set up to a ten dollar minimum for credit card purchases without being fined or penalized by the credit card companies.· Allows merchants to offer discounts for cash, checks or other forms of payment.· Allow merchants to determine which business locations will, and will not, accept cards, without being fined or penalized by the companies.Tasha Wallis, Executive Director of the Vermont Retail Association, concluded, It has been a long, hard battle, and we re so pleased that, at the end of the day, Vermont legislators showed bipartisan support for a law that assists small grocers and retailers around Vermont.”Source: VRA. 6.22.2010-30-last_img read more
