On a plot without salient features, the project took as starting point the restrictions marked by the geotechnical study, which showed that the first meters underground had a low resistance capacity. To avoid a deep foundation, not recommendable for both economic and environmental reasons, it was necessary to reanalyze the organization of the house and its building systems. The design called for a very light construction, or else one that would evenly distribute the loads to the ground. The light construction option was discarded because it was considered important to gain interior thermal inertia for a better passive behaviour.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe first decision was to build a house on ground level in order to distribute the weight of the building. The second, to use decking to convey the load of the pavements and use directly to the ground. The third, to use a linear structural system organized in a grid to fully and proportionally distribute loads of the roof to the ground. In sum: taking the project to the limit, adjusting to the maximum and overloading the terrain to an extreme to achieve the heaviest house possible with the màximum mass (inertia) the terrain could take.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe volume freed up below the deck was filled with a thick layer of gravel, creating a thermal collector with a high inertia that pretreats the air renewal of the house. In the design process, any problem was treated as an opportunity that could be taken as an advantage to improve the project. The program is distributed in ten equal spaces of 3.5 x 5.12 meters. The versatility of these 18 square meters and the generous relationships between them offers, surprisingly, great freedom and allows imagining that the house can be used in very different ways over the years, creating rooms that can be independent or used as a single space.Save this picture!DetailThe architecture pursued was one that responds to the minimum and basic needs, avoiding superfluous elements, but that allows at the same time a maximum potential of uses. The house is just an infrastructure where the users can choose the best way to make it their own. The solar protection reproduces the interior grid with a vegetal protection organized like small chapels, creating a threshold that will prevent the summer sun from overheating the house, minimizing the visual impact of the construction, which will blend with the garden. House and garden would want to be one same thing, to live using the whole plot.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessRichard Meier On Color in Architecture and His Only Black BuildingVideosENSAE PARISTECH Campus Paris-Saclay / CAB ArchitectesSelected Projects Share Year: CopyHouses•Palau-solità i Plegamans, Spain CopyAbout this officeHARQUITECTESOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPalau-solità i PlegamansSpainPublished on January 17, 2018Cite: “House 1219 / HARQUITECTES” 17 Jan 2018.

News June 24, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Visiting researcher held after interviewing government critic Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of Aleksandr Sodiqov, a Toronto-based Tajik blogger and university researcher who was arrested during a visit to Tajikistan on 16 June and is being held on a spying charge. Follow the news on Tajikistan May 14, 2021 Find out more A specialist in conflict prevention, Sodiqov was arrested in Khorog, the capital of the autonomous southeastern province of Gorno-Badakhshan, after interviewing local opposition leader Alim Sherzamonov. After saying nothing for three days, the State Committee for National Security (GKNB) announced on 19 June that Sodiqov had been arrested and transferred to Dushanbe, the capital.Sodiqov was born in Tajikistan and worked there for ten years for international NGOs and organizations. He has been a Canadian resident since 2012, working as a researcher at Toronto University. He also keeps a blog and writes for Global Voices on political and social issues in Tajikistan and neighbouring countries.He went to Khorog under a conflict management and resolution programme run by Britain’s Exeter University. The day after his arrest, his computer was seized in a search of his mother’s home. The GKNB said he was suspected of spying for a foreign government although his research director at Exeter University submitted documents explaining his presence.On 18 and 19 June, the regional state TV station broadcast heavily edited extracts of a video of Sodiqov’s interrogation, in which he appears to be under pressure. According to viewers, he quoted Sherzamonov as having said: “If in 2012, the people of Badakhshan no longer trusted the security forces then, in 2014, they no longer trust the government and the Aga Khan.”It would seem that the video and attribution of controversial comments are designed to discredit Sherzamonov, a well-known civil society activist and parliamentary representative of the Social Democrat Party, who has denied making them. “The secrecy surrounding Sodiqov’s detention and the televising of extracts of his interrogation violate his right to a fair trial,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “His arrest is the result of the Tajik government’s paranoia and tendency to blame foreigners for the unrest in Tajikistan instead of facing up to its own responsibilities.”Bihr added: “Sodiqov must be released at once and the absurd charges brought against him must be dropped. It is time the government stopped raising the spectre of civil war in order to silence its critics and justify cracking down.”Sherzamonov was the uncle of one of two men gunned down by police in Khorog on 21 May and was one of the leaders of the ensuing anti-government protests, which turned in a riot.Armed clashes in July 2012 that had Khorog has their epicentre have been the subject of a tight information blackout ever since. GKNB chief Saymumin Yatimov said on 19 June that Tajikistan’s security was threatened by foreign spies operating “under the cover of NGOs.”Since 10 June, YouTube and other Google services have been partially blocked in Tajikistan, which is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.For more information:- Go to the “Release A.

Pictured L-R Irene Hehir, Womens League Limerick Utd, Tommy Barrett, Academy Manager and Con Murray, Interim Chairman Limerick Utd. Pic Arthur Ellis.LEAGUE of Ireland soccer in Limerick is going to be given a ‘bottom-up’ reboot with the establishment of Limerick United, Interim Chairman of the newly formed club Conn Murray stated yesterday.Launching Limerick United, which will be based at the Markets Field, Mr Murray said the club will begin with and concentrate exclusively on the development of a best-in-class soccer academy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Today is the beginning of a new era for football in Limerick,” said Conn Murray, “We are going to focus on what every club or sporting organisation does when it hits a low and that is focus on our youth. If you look at the top teams, clubs, counties or provinces in any sport, you will see pretty much everything points back to a moment in time where they put the focus on developing their young talent.”The recently retired CEO of Limerick City and County Council said the aim with establishing Limerick United is to “develop one of the best young footballing academies in Ireland”.It will, he said, become a nursery intent not just on maximising the footballing potential of its members but their personal development also.“We are going to nurture the talent there, make sure we do all we can so that every young man or woman who comes through our gates fulfils his or her sporting talent and, in doing so, their own personal development.“This will not happen overnight. We are realists. But will be a gradual but sustainable development that, by the time we get Limerick United achieving its full potential, the structures will be in place to keep it there.”And he called for the support of the public and business community to join a journey that will be focussed on, in time, surpassing even the glory years of soccer in Limerick and the region.Welcoming the announcement, the Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Michael Sheahan said, “Sport is not just an afterthought in Limerick; it plays a central role in our lives here. Football is among the most participated-in sports in the city and has a rich tradition here.”Mayor Sheahan said because of the County’s sporting tradition, people would feel “we should be at the top table in football in Ireland and I welcome this move to get us back there.”“I’m particularly pleased with the way the club is going about it. You have to start with the young. In any sport or organisation, you must have a huge focus on youth as they are the future. If you just live in the now, you won’t be long-running out of road.“So, to that end, I am really pleased that they are starting where they are. I know that the right structures are going to be put in place, that the build will careful and not rushed and that because of that and the people involved, I have every confidence that Limerick will be back at that top table in due course and will be there to stay.“I wish everyone involved success and look forward to supporting Limerick United on and off the terrace, in whatever way I can as Mayor and beyond then.” Former Limerick FC defender Tony Whitehead ‘not surprised’ by Treaty United’s dream start RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Email Previous articleRathkeale rises to the 52 coin challengeNext articleVisiting ban lifted but restrictions remain in place at University Hospital Limerick Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Print Advertisement Twitter Facebook SoccerLimerick FCNewsSportNew era dawns for soccer in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – January 14, 2020 511 TAGSLimerick City and CountyLimerick FClimerick unitedNewssoccerSport Linkedin LISTEN: Stephen Hunt Reviews Ireland Vs Serbia Former Limerick FC star named in Ireland squad Limerick’s Paudie O’Connor named Bradford City Player of the Season WhatsApp “We have no divine right to beat anyone unless we’re one hundred percent at it” GIF Analysis: Treaty show plenty of promise in game of two halves
