The commission consisted of two waterfront houses, on a narrow piece of land, compressed by the sea and a cliff. Thus, the question arises immediately: how not to fall into the evident blatancy of the view to the sea, having it in front like an unavoidable scene with no mediating between sight and sea?. The answer is to measure. A volume is then proposed that revolves in itself to receive the sea as a surprise, as a violent blow of sight, and a different perspective each and every time, as a sight that cannot be anticipated.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2DMWe can say that it is a work that achieves, not an immense, unique sea, but several, that of the northern rockery, Punta Puertecillo to the south, and so on. In this way, the two volumes that contain and tighten the volume appear: the sea and the cliff. Save this picture!Courtesy of 2DMSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of 2DMSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of 2DMSave this picture!Third Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of 2DMProject gallerySee allShow less11 Vernacular Building Techniques That Are DisappearingArticlesRAAAF is Breaking Habits With a Vision of a Home Without ChairsArchitecture News Share Chile Architects: 2DM Area Area of this architecture project Area:  118 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2 Houses in Puertecillo / 2DM ArchDaily Projects “COPY” Save this picture!Courtesy of 2DM+ 30 Share Year:  CopyAbout this office2DMOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNavidadChilePublished on February 20, 2017Cite: “2 Houses in Puertecillo / 2DM” 20 Feb 2017.

Vermont congressional delegation opposes Obama heating aid cuts

first_imgThe Vermont congressional delegation today opposed a White House budget proposal that would nearly cut in half a heating assistance program for seniors and low-income families with children.Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said ‘heat in the winter is not a consumer choice. It’s not a luxury.’ Instead of cutting heating assistance, Leahy said Congress should end tax breaks for oil companies that ‘are just using them to make obscene profits.’Sen. Bernie Sanders was the chief sponsor of a 2008 bill that increased federal heating assistance. He said he was disappointed in the president’s budget proposal. ‘This senator will do everything he can to make sure that the budget is not balanced on the backs of the weak, the vulnerable, the sick or the old who can’t afford to heat their homes in the winter,’ he said.‘This is simply wrong,’ added Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.). ‘We must not balance the budget at the expense of Vermonters struggling to heat their homes in winter. Instead of turning off the heat, we should be turning off the billions of dollars in subsidies we provide the oil industry.’The delegation led an effort in Congress that doubled funding for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program to $5.1 billion a year for the past three years. The program provides critical assistance for senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and low-income families with children.Nationally, more than 8 million Americans rely on the program to stay warm in the winter. If Congress goes along with the president’s budget proposal, more than 3 million Americans would be denied the help they need to keep their heat on during the winter.Vermonters today are paying nearly $3.50 a gallon on average for heating oil, up more than 70 cents a gallon from last year. At the same time, the average grant for Vermonters is less than it was last year because more families now qualify for help. About 27,000 Vermont households will receive assistance this year, up from 20,350 households last year.Source: Vermont congressional delegation BURLINGTON, Vt., Feb. 14 ‘last_img read more

Dakar Rally should return to some Latin countries: Spanish racer Roma

first_imgMadrid, Dec 19 (IANS) Spanish racer Joan Roma, best known as Nani, urged organisers to consider returning the Dakar Rally to countries in Latin America such as Argentina and Chile, as the upcoming edition is to be held in Peru.During an event by organisers held here, Nani, who won the 2004 Dakar Rally riding a motorcycle and the 2014 edition driving a car, said that Latin America has wonderful areas to hold the event, while getting back to Africa is difficult at the moment, reports Efe news.”For me South America has spectacular sites: the Atacama (Desert) in Chile, Argentina,” the 46-year-old racer said.He added that the French media group of Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), which organizes several sports events including the Dakar rally, “has to react, change the way of doing things and return again to the countries they were in before.”Nani also sees that returning to Africa currently would not be the most suitable choice as the security and geopolitical situation in many countries of that continent was getting worse all the time.”There are talks of going back to Africa, but honestly I do not see it is possible,” Nani expressed. “Morocco is safe, there are parts of Algeria that are safe; (however the rally) cannot go to Libya, Mali is not safe.”He added “to get the rally back to Africa will be different from what it used to be. For me, the Dakar rally could stay in Latin America.”–IANSgau/bglast_img read more
