The client, an Art Gallery director, asked for a contemporary home on a narrow inner city allotment. The house was to have two bedrooms plus an extra study that could be used for visiting artists to stay in, and was also to include a private subterranean gallery.The house extends over 3 levels; the entry is on the middle, ground level, where all the living spaces flow around a courtyard, a sliced circle, a hint of a possible larger courtyard in an expanded field of scattered architectural objects and events. The placement of objects on this level works much like a layout of a pinball machine, with each surface hinting at possible routes that one could take through the house, sometimes encouraging a certain movement, sometimes not. The front study is for visiting artists and has an adjoining bathroom. Downstairs is a basement gallery, indirectly lit from the north front garden via a concrete light shaft / skylight which also doubles as a seat or sculpture podium.Save this picture!© John GollingsRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – ConcretePanels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsFretwork Facade PanelWoodEGGERTimberThe house works a bit like a Rorschach test, enabling people to read into it what they like, whether it be virtual images of a “?”, or a number “2” in the front facade, or other architectural images throughout the spaces, hidden, like vague reflections. The house in some ways became an experiment in treading the fine line between representational imagery and ‘pure’ abstract form. No matter how abstract our forms may be, the free association of the inhabitants will create new, varied and ever changing meanings and images.Save this picture!© John GollingsProject gallerySee allShow less2011 Pritzker Prize: Eduardo Souto de MouraArticlesSports Canopy / GS-CAArticles Share Area:  364 m² Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/122704/the-white-house-prahran-nervegna-reed-architecture-ph-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Australia Australialast_img read more

Commodities watch

first_imgThe Home-Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) and Scotland Food & Drink has launched a new campaign called All About Oats, which aims to promote the health benefits of oats and encourage people to eat them.”This campaign will help raise awareness and remind health professionals and consumers ’all about oats’. From coarse pinhead oats and superfine oatmeal to regular and jumbo rolled oats; there are so many ways to enjoy this great Scottish crop,” said Hamish Walls, Chair of the Scottish Oats Group.The campaign launch on 6 November was attended by Karen Gillon MSP, Shadow Minister for Rural Development, and was well supported by the Scottish food industry.The event included a presentation by Dr Derek Stewart of the Scottish Crop Research Institute, who has recently completed a literature review of the health benefits of oats.The HGCA’s consultant dietician, Jane Griffin, also explained why oats were a valuable and versatile part of a healthy, balanced diet. She said: “As well as their versatility, oats are full of nutritional benefits. Oats can help reduce cholesterol as part of a diet low in saturated fat and a healthy lifestyle, and are a wholegrain food. As they are slow energy-release foods, oats can also help keep you fuller for longer to avoid the temptation of snacking. Oats are a good source of beta-glucans, phytochemicals, B vitamins, iron and potassium, as well as various antioxidants.”The campaign will run until next summer.

Wellington City Council forum: Kim Woodrow

first_img2. What is the main reason why you are running for Wellington City Council?Woodrow: I am a current city council member, and am running because I  believe the people are the government. I once said that the problems could not be fixed from the outside and a friend of mine called me on it. We all need to be involved.3. Losing businesses is an ongoing concern to the community of Wellington. What do you as a city council member believe you can do to stop the exodus and enhance business growth?Woodrow: Most of the businesses that we’ve lost have been service oriented; resturants and stores, in and around the downtown area. While this is a concern, I think that if Wellington can entice  more indusry to the area, we will regain the smaller service types. I have been, and will continue working  with our new Economic Development Director to bring as many large scale job creators into the area as possible.4. The current Wellington City Council is studying ways to supply water to oil companies. What is your position on the matter?Woodrow: The oil industry has created financial gain for many of the surrounding areas, I have no problem supplying them with water as long as it creates no hardship on the people of Wellington. City Management is currently looking into using effluent water from our water treatment facility to fill these needs.5. Staying with water, because of the current drought, the water level is low at the Wellington City Lake. Do you favor other alternative water sourcing, or do you believe we should remain status quo on our water resources? Also, will you ever be in favor of water rationing?Woodrow: We are looking into alternative water sources by drilling test wells to supplement current supplies. I believe we should always be searching for alternative methods to keep our community self sufficient. I am not in favor of rationing unless there is no alternative.6. The total assessed valuation in Wellington went down in 2012, but may remain constant or improve with the inclusion of Wal-Mart on the tax roll in 2013. However, this may not be the case in the next four years. If Wellington has a lower assessed value as the previous year, how would you as a council member respond to the lack of tax revenue for the municipality?Woodrow: The best answer to making Wellington a more viable community is to entice industry to our city and create more jobs. That being said, I am not in favor of raising taxes.7. Many believe Wellington has trouble promoting itself to outsiders. Do you believe as a tax entity, the city should initiate various promotional programs and if so what would you think they should be?Woodrow: We have a golf course that, as I understand, is one of the better courses  in the area, we have a water park, three museums, a baseball team, a go cart track, two lakes, four parks, a new high school and the Wheat Festival. I have, with Sherry Wiley, helped lead a goup of local citizens to clean up the town.  I  also asked the code compliance department survey the city and cite derilict buildings..  I will discuss with the council, the possibility of city assistance to people don’t have the means to make improvements to their properties. I believe if we want to draw people into our community, we have to make it presentable.8. Do you believe in tax incentives to lure in private business? If so or not, please explain.Woodrow: I do believe in tax incentives to bring new businesses into Wellington. This seems to be what many other communities are doing and, though, it may seem unfair to existing businesses, I believe it’s the only way we can be competetive and will pay back in the long run.9. The Wellington utility rates continue to be a concern to many citizens, especially the fuel adjustment rates. Do you believe they are reasonable and in line with other communities? Should the city make a change in the way it handles utilities? Woodrow: We have lower electricity rates than Winfield but we are slightly higher, across the board, than comparable sized cities in Kansas. We have our own maintenece crews so, in the case of an outage, we have a quicker response time. We have not had a rate increase since 2007 and we have the lowest water rates.10. What would you say is Wellington’s biggest concern over the next four years?Woodrow: The major concern, as I see it, is creating jobs and the only way I can see to do that is to bring more businesses into the community. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Kim Woodrow is a Wellington City Council incumbent running for one of six “at large” positions on the newly restructured board.Registered voters within the Wellington city limits can vote in this race which will have 15 candidates on the ballot. The top three vote-getters will receive four-year terms. The second three will receive two-year terms.Voters can vote for up to six candidates. They can vote for one candidate, two candidates, three, four, five or six – but nothing more.The city/school election will be held on Tuesday, April 2. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. at the Raymond Frye Complex. People can also advance vote at the Sumner County Clerk’s office.The following is a list of questions submitted to Woodrow.1. Tell us about yourself.Woodrow: I was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1967 and served with the 82nd Airborne Division in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969, attaining the rank of Sargent E-5. After leaving the military I worked for 35 years in the aircraft industry for Cessna, LearJet and Boeing, starting as an assembler and retiring as an industrial engineer. Close Forgot password?

BREAKING — 2020 Iowa high school football season revised to seven-week season, expanded playoffs

first_imgDATEWEEKSCHEDULE The following below is from a release from the Iowa High School Athletic Association 2020 Scheduling PlanREGULAR SEASON: A seven-week regular season will be conducted. Teams will have the option of scheduling five, six, or seven games within those seven weeks.POSTSEASON: All teams in all classes will qualify for the postseason. Brackets will consist of six rounds for each classification. The IHSAA will determine postseason pairings with geography, quality, and team availability as primary considerations. This is intended to be a one-time measure for postseason formatting.OPTIONAL DATES: Week 1 and Week 2 will be optional game dates. Opponents, locations, and participation may determined by member schools in 11-player football.RPI FORMULA: With all teams allowed entry into the postseason, the Ratings Percentage Index will not be utilized in 2020 to determine at-large berths or seeding.DISTRICT GAMES: Teams in Classes 3A, 2A, 1A, and A will play their scheduled district games in the previously established order. This change means the prior Week 5 becomes Week 3, Week 6 becomes Week 4, etc., in this revised plan.CLASS 4A: Participating schools will schedule their own regular season games. The previously announced group format and success model will not be implemented in 2020. The IHSAA encourages conferences to collaborate in creating their schedules.EIGHT-PLAYER: Teams will play Week 3 through Week 9 of their previously announced schedules in what is now Week 1 through Week 7. Due to the number of teams in the classification, Eight-Player has opponents scheduled on the optional dates of Week 1 and Week 2. Teams in Eight-Player may opt out of those contests, but may not change opponents or locations unless an agreement is reached with all participating teams and the IHSAA.MISSING GAMES: Due to the potential of positive COVID-19 cases forcing players and teams to miss games in the 2020 regular season, the revised plan does not penalize teams with a loss or forfeit due to state, county, or local health department determinations. A missed game due to COVID-19 will be considered a “no contest” and will not be made up. Teams may work with the IHSAA and new possible opponents should they have open dates due to scheduled opponents missing games.OUT OF STATE GAMES: Teams with scheduled games against out of state opponents may attempt to reschedule those contests during the optional Week 1 or Week 2.TEAM PARTICIPATION: Providing for start dates as currently scheduled, the IHSAA requests member schools state their intent to participate in football’s regular season and postseason by August 17.

Football remains the only Iowa high school sport with regular season schedules and postseason qualifying managed by the IHSAA. The revised plan considers flexibility for school return concerns, geography, postseason qualifying, transportation, and possible COVID-19 cases as rationale for changing previously announced varsity football schedules.The first practice (August 10) and first competition (August 27) dates are currently unchanged in this revision, as are the weeks for state semifinals (November 13-15) and finals (November 20-21).This revised plan was approved by the Board of Control on Friday. The IHSAA plans to release further fall season and sport-specific guidance next week. Team schedules will be compiled and released when available.
