Nestled among boulders and rock outcrops, perched on the precipice of a deep, forested ravine in West Vancouver, Canada, House 4249 builds on the legacy of a West Coast Modernist style inspired by the works of Neutra, Ellwood, Koening and Erickson, with origins in West Vancouver beginning in the 1940s and continuing into the 1970s. Like many designs of these predecessors, House 4249 captures the spirit of openness and a connection with nature – both hallmarks of the Modernist movement in residential design at that time. Both the intrinsic differences and the links between the built environment and nature are simultaneously celebrated. By strategically merging interior and exterior, both visually and physically, the boundaries between the built and the natural are dissolved, and living spaces, while distinct in character, become directly connected to, and are one with, nature.

This ordered logic is achieved through a simple series of overlapping planes. Both vertical and horizontal, these planes form, in a very fundamental way, the organizational structure of the uses within. Expressing simplicity, thin, floating planes of the composition required a more innovative structural solution – the first of its kind in North America. With the use of this Cross-Laminated Timber structure, the house was free to express plane profiles capable of being visually unsupported as well as cantilevers that extend farther and thinner than would otherwise be possible in steel or concrete. The erection of this pioneering CLT project in North America was completed in a mere six days, allowing the house to take form much quicker and with less disturbance on this sensitive natural site than with traditional means of framing.

Those trees are not well-adapted to the local climate and have serious pest problems that can spread to native trees and plants. They don’t promote a healthy ecosystem or the birds and wildlife that are so important in the Lower Arroyo nature preserve.”There was a tremendous amount of community support for a science-based, environmentally sensitive approach to managing and restoring the Arroyo, which the restoration program will accomplish, but exempting the removal of Canary Island Pine trees is contradictory to that.According to the Department of Public Works staff report, the trees were proposed for removal in order to restore the native plant communities and associated wildlife habitat in the Arroyo Seco from the area surrounding the John K. Van De Kamp Bridge, and north to the Pasadena Casting Pond.The plan will “restore, enhance, and reestablish the historical native plant communities of the Arroyo Seco,” the staff report said.The project is necessary because the La Loma Bridge Rehabilitation Project did not include the restoration of habitat in the area surrounding the bridge after the work was completed.The new project will see the new planting of 11 Southern California Black Walnut trees, 14 Coast Live Oak trees, 17 Western Sycamore trees, and approximately 2,000 understory shrubs and herbaceous plants.The ASF has circulated a petition that has garnered more than 700 signatures as of Thursday afternoon.“Restoring native plants and trees improves the health of all ecosystems, and brings balance back to our unique area. Native trees need less water and maintenance since they are meant to be here. Long live native trees,!” said one person who signed the petition.Public Works staff will finalize the project plans and specifications in the fall and prepare bids to submit to City Council or approval by December. The construction completion date is set for March 21, in order to comply with a Proposition A grant reimbursement deadline, according to the staff report.

Boeheim refuses to discuss NCAA Tournament chances after loss to Miami

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 24, 2015 at 7:53 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb All Jim Boeheim was willing to discuss were free throws.After his Syracuse (14-6, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) team made just 8-of-19 from the line in its 66-62 loss to Miami (14-5, 4-2) on Saturday in the Carrier Dome, Boeheim didn’t expand much in his postgame press conference on topics other than SU’s woeful free-throw shooting.Until a reporter asked if the head coach thought his team has fallen behind in terms of building a resume worth an NCAA Tournament bid. The Orange, at 14-6 with a demanding ACC schedule ahead of it, is in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2007-08 season.“Ridiculous. You’re the worst I’ve ever been around,” Boeheim said to the reporter. “We do not talk — maybe you’re new, I don’t know. We don’t talk about postseason. We don’t think about it. We play the next game. You guys, that’s your job. Don’t ask me that because I won’t answer it.”Another reporter chimed in and said that ESPN play-by-play broadcaster Sean McDonough, on the air, spoke about a conversation he had with Boeheim in which the longtime SU head coach discussed the NCAA Tournament.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“All I said to him was that every game is important,” Boeheim said, referring to McDonough. “You have to win every game. You have to win to get in the Tournament. We’re not in and we’re not out. That’s all I said to him.”“… But I never talk about the Tournament, never speculate about it, in or out,” Boeheim continued. “That’s for somebody else to decide that at the end of the year. They’re always tough calls. We’ve just got to play, win as many as we can and put ourselves in position and whatever happens happens. That’s always been my policy. That’s all I’ve ever said.“I might’ve said it’s not going to be easy, but that’s not a revelation. I think if you watch us play, it’s not going to be easy. But we’ll see what happens.” Commentslast_img read more

Salomon Rondon leads Venezuela to dominant win over the United States

first_imgSalomon Rondon scored twice to help Venezuela beat the United States for the first time and become his country’s all-time leading goalscorer after a 3-0 win that will send Rafael Dudamel’s side into the Copa America on a high.West Brom striker Rondon, who has been linked with a transfer away from the Baggies in recent weeks, put himself very much in the shop window with a match-winning display in which he also provided an assist for Jefferson Savarino to score Venezuela’s second as a sorry USA side was torn apart. Rondon timed a run superbly on 36 minutes and brought Tomas Rincon’s long ball under control before composing himself and rattling a left-footed shot into the corner of the net, beating Steffen at his near post from close range.HT | Venezuela leads in the first half. 45 minutes left to battle!0:3 pic.twitter.com/L2yTNtbDKP— U.S. Soccer MNT (@USMNT) June 9, 2019The hosts failed to improve after halftime, mustering just four shots across the course of the game, and Berhalter will demand better when they take on Guyana in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in under two weeks’ time.Meanwhile, Venezuela will go into their Copa America opener against Peru on Saturday in high spirits after a historic win and an unforgettable night for their in-form striker. USA coach Gregg Berhalter saw his players lose the first game of his time in charge three days earlier when they slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Jamaica and will have been concerned by a defensive horror show in which they conceded three goals inside 20 first-half minutes.Venezuela’s opener came courtesy of calamitous USA defending as goalkeeper Zack Steffen gifted a clearance to Yangel Herrera who fed Jhon Murillo and he laid the ball back to Rondon for a bundled shot into the net.It was Rondon’s flicked header that allowed Savarino to go through on goal moments later, the Real Salt Lake winger scoring at the second time of asking after his first shot came back off the post.last_img read more
