Located in a central Tokyo neighborhood with many low and mid-rise office buildings, this rental building for restaurants stands on a long, narrow lot, surrounded on three sides by streets.Save this picture!© Shigeo OgawaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Shigeo OgawaKey considerations when designing a building of this type are how to create a group identity for the tenants and how to relate the units to the cityscape. Because of its city-center location, this mid-rise building needed to be commercially efficient, occupying the entire permissible floor area ratio and filling that space with restaurant tenants on every floor. It was therefore essential to create the image of a building full of restaurants, to set up a bright and welcoming environment for visitors, and an attractive building for the passerby.Save this picture!SectionThe new building has a recessed façade with three-dimensional stacked terraces, protruding into this space on each floor. The size and shape of these terraces vary by floor, creating a layered form that changes as it moves upward. Furthermore, this dynamic facade is entirely made of glass, allowing people outside to look into the restaurants. These excrescences are real outside extensions to the restaurants space, and appear to the facing street like a lively theater scene.Save this picture!© Shigeo OgawaThe sheltered terraces are connected with a strategically placed yet continuous gap link the terraces with above and below, allowing even diners on the higher floors to sense the people and cars passing on the street below and enjoy eating in a dynamic urban atmosphere. In typical multi-story restaurant buildings, tenants are completely independent of one another, but this building, they interact through terraces, creating opportunities for customers at each restaurant to visit the others.Save this picture!© Shigeo OgawaRegarding the materiality of the building, the black joinery work and frames, while avoiding an office-like exterior appearance, give to the building an entity, and allow each restaurant unit to stand out clearly from each other. For the interior spaces, the black window sashes, neutral and basic, allows the users to appropriate the space easily.Save this picture!© Shigeo OgawaIn response to its context, the building, alike a porous volume, encourages the terraces on each floor to connect to the street and the larger neighborhood. In doing so, it aims to a new type of public character.Project gallerySee allShow lessGroupe Scolaire De La Pomme De Pin / Céline Teddé & Jérôme Apack architectes + DSA …Selected ProjectsJuck-e-jae in Hadong / studio_GAONSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Chiyoda, Tokyo, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.

Christian Aid adopts explosive new approach to insert

first_imgFollowing six successful years of their ‘How to Recycle a Goat’ insert, Christian Aid is testing a new insert titled ‘It takes faith, hope and dynamite’, produced by fundraising specialists Whitewater.John Ranford at Christian Aid, said: “We’re convinced the reason that our banker insert has worked so well is that the headline and outer image attracts people to open it and so we needed to make the test equally – if not more – appealing. The image of a stick of dynamite coupled with a variation on this well known Christian phrase does exactly this.”Christian Aid has used a range of titles for the insert such as BBC Wildlife and Christianity and Renewal. Although these have performed well over a long period of time, it was clear that the creative was beginning to lose its impact.

So we’ve taken a deliberately radical stance – namely that ‘faith and hope don’t add up to much without action’… If Christian Aid is to bring clean water to those villages in need, extreme physical solutions are often needed to get to the water trapped beneath the rock. “It’s a really positive, active message which we hope will engage the audience.”  15 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Christian Aid adopts explosive new approach to insert About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Russians go to polls facing looming U.S.-NATO threats

first_imgOn Sept. 18, citizens of the Russian Federation will elect 450 members of the State Duma, the lower house of the Federal Assembly. In addition, 39 regions will choose legislative assemblies, seven regions will elect governors, and municipal elections will be held in 5,000 cities and towns.Crimea will participate in a national election for the first time since seceding from Ukraine and reuniting with Russia in 2014.With some fluctuations, the current political makeup of the Duma is expected to continue, with President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party in first place, followed by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation led by Gennady Zyuganov, the right-wing nationalist Liberal Democratic Party and the moderate Fair Russia party.Fourteen other parties automatically qualified to run candidates. Eight more gathered the 200,000 signatures needed to gain a place on the ballot. But none of these 22 parties are expected to break the 5 percent threshold needed to receive seats in the Duma.Bloomberg News, echoing many Western media outlets, labelled this “the most boring election of 2016.” Certainly no one expects the kind of protests that hit Moscow and other big cities after the last Duma election in 2011.However, that doesn’t mean the election is unimportant.For one thing, polling in Russia is an enormous undertaking, involving 111 million eligible voters (including 1.9 million living abroad), covering a territory of 6.6 million square miles. These voters will choose among 103,000 registered candidates in the various contests, according to Central Election Commission Chair Ella Pamfilova.Since Pamfilova’s appointment, the Russian government has attempted to increase the transparency of the election process. The rules for Duma elections have changed significantly since 2011. Then, all candidates were selected from party lists.This time, two forms of voting will take place side by side. Half of Duma members will be chosen by the same method of proportional representation for political parties that pass the 5 percent threshold. But the other 225 will be elected in local, single-member districts, with the top vote-getter winning the seat. This change potentially opens up much broader participation by individuals and representatives of other parties and movements.Finally, every person who goes to the polls Sunday — or chooses not to — will be acutely aware of the dramatic change in Russia’s international relations since 2011: the Western-backed coup and civil war in neighboring Ukraine; sanctions imposed on Russia by the U.S. and the European Union over its reunion with Crimea; the war against the Islamic State group in Syria; and the provocative military posturing by Washington and NATO in eastern Europe against the alleged “Russian threat.”When the U.S. intervenes in electionsDemocratic Party officials have charged — and this is repeated ad nauseam by the U.S. media — that Russia’s government is trying to influence or even “steal” the U.S. presidential election on behalf of Donald Trump.Yet, for all the hours of talking heads and columns of ink devoted to these (completely unsubstantiated) claims, not one has mentioned how the U.S. routinely interferes in other countries’ elections — including Russia’s.The role of foreign-sponsored nongovernmental organizations has become a matter of great concern for Russia since 2011 — especially after the part these groups played in the overthrow of Ukraine’s elected government in 2014. NGOs that receive major funding from foreign sources are now required to register as “foreign agents” with the Russian government.In the past year, U.S.-based NGOs — from George Soros’ Open Society Institute to the International Republican Institute — have been added to Russia’s list of “undesirable organizations” banned or placed under close scrutiny.This is one reason that pro-Western political parties are in disarray and have little hope of advancing in the Sept. 18 elections.Another is the resurgence of anti-fascist sentiment in Russia since the coup in Ukraine, the subsequent reunion with Crimea and the war waged by Kiev authorities and neo-Nazi groups against the breakaway Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.On Sept. 5, the Russian Justice Ministry announced that the Levada Center, an NGO calling itself Russia’s main independent polling service, had been ordered to register as a foreign agent.An investigation revealed that Levada — long known for its affinity to pro-Western, neoliberal political parties — receives much of its funding from Western sources, including a grant from the University of Wisconsin at Madison curated by the U.S. Department of Defense.Other sources of funding include George Washington University, Columbia University, the U.S.-based Gallup poll company, and businesses in Britain, Germany, Switzerland and Norway. (TASS, Sept. 6)How the left participates in the electionsThe Soviet Union broke up 25 years ago. Polls have shown that the majority of Russians and residents of other former Soviet republics regret its breakup. Many wish they could return to a socialist system that guaranteed jobs, education, health care and other essential needs.Despite the economic downturn that has hit Russia and other major oil producing countries, President Putin’s popularity remains high. He is seen as standing up to the coup-makers in Ukraine by accepting the Crimean referendum to reunite with Russia in the face of Western threats and sanctions.What about leftist parties that oppose Western imperialist influence but also seek to organize the working class against capitalist rule in Russia?Some groups have called for a boycott of the elections. But others, while pointing out that elections under the current system cannot bring about socialism, are campaigning to gain a wider audience for their program.In Moscow, for example, the United Communist Party is running candidates in three single-member districts. Party leader Vladimir Lakeev succeeded in getting the 15,000 signatures required to win a slot on the ballot — one of only two Moscow candidates to do so. His comrades Darya Mitina and Vladimir Strukov are running on the ticket of the Communists of Russia party, a group with national ballot status.In St. Petersburg and Dagestan, the Russian United Labor Front is also running candidates in single-member district races. These candidates all receive local television airtime for campaign advertisements and are able to participate in televised debates, giving them the opportunity to reach workers who might not otherwise hear their message.The candidates have taken to the streets with sound cars, rallies and information booths. Lakeev was even briefly arrested on Aug. 31 after he draped a banner from a landmark arch reminding Muscovites of the approaching centenary of the Russian Revolution in 2017.“We raise issues of immediate concern to Moscow residents, including reform of the health care system, environmental problems, land ownership and property relations, inflation, social inequality and more,” Lakeev explained.“We communists have never entertained illusions about the role of elections in capitalist society, where everything is decided by money. For us, this is just one of the tools to appeal to the people. Using the elections as an opportunity to appeal to the public, we put acute social questions on the agenda, and explain the need for an organized struggle for their rights, which no visit to the polling station can replace.” (Comstol.info, Sept. 5)This article was published by TeleSur on Sept. 18.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Here’s a plan

first_imgPlanning. It’s something we do every day. On a personal level, we plan our meals, our work, our housekeeping, our leisure time. Sometimes our plans are interrupted by welcome surprises, sometimes they are thwarted by unforeseen circumstances. Then we make new plans.As human activity has grown more complex with the growth of technology and social organization, so has the need for planning. The development of the computer, fortunately, has made it much easier to crunch the data and plan ahead.Right now, a dangerous pandemic is racing around the world. The richest country of all, one with great technological development, is now confronting the novel coronavirus COVID-19. As this is written, on March 23, the United States has the appalling distinction of being the country with the largest number of new cases of COVID-19 in the world — 1,524 and growing. (worldometers.info/coronavirus)China, where the virus first broke out, appears to have contained the epidemic, with only 39 new cases.Of course, there are many more people in China than in the U.S. A look at the number of cases per million people — which include active cases as well as those who either died or got well —  shows another sharp difference. The figure for China is 56 cases per million people. For the U.S. it is 106 per million — nearly twice the rate.The U.S. government and local authorities had plenty of time to plan for this epidemic. It shouldn’t have taken anyone by surprise. But the figures show that nowhere near enough was done, and people are getting sick and dying as a result.And who suffers the most is also clear. While the virus knows no class boundaries, the vast majority of those who die lack adequate health care, have jobs that put them in contact with many other people daily, and/or are already in poor health from previous conditions. In other words, the majority are workers.At the same time, the U.S. is going through an economic collapse that even government officials are beginning to call a depression. The measures taken in an attempt to limit the epidemic have undoubtedly sped up the economic implosion, but the economy was starting to buckle even earlier.The spread of the virus, its deadly impact and the economic collapse all point to one thing: lack of planning.What kind of planning is needed?This is a capitalist country, a rich and imperialist one whose ruling class exploits workers not just here but around the world. Those rulers know how to plan — because the existing system requires a lot of planning to keep it running!But for what purpose? In order to maximize profits. When profits are threatened — as they are in every cyclical capitalist downturn — the first thought by the ruling class is how to protect their investments. Everything else is secondary.It’s not just that capitalists are bad people. (Well, most of them are really awful.) It’s that their relationship to their wealth compels them to be cynical and greedy, and to make decisions that are in the interests of their private capital and not in the interests of society.As the economic and health crises both deepen, more workers are going to be thinking about what kind of society they need. The growing popularity of socialism over capitalism, especially among young people, has found expression in the Sanders campaign.But it will take far more than that to make even a dent in this system, which is completely dependent on the exploitation of labor for private gain.The means of production were built by the workers. The capitalists never laid one brick, plowed one field or sewed one garment. They have expropriated the wealth built by the working class.That wealth must be liberated so that all economic activity can be planned to meet the needs of the people. That liberating system is called socialism. Let’s get used to claiming that word proudly!The elections will come and go. The increased suffering of the great masses of working people hit by the virus of capitalist crisis will only increase. The time to focus on building the movement for revolutionary change is now.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
