1221 Broadway / Lake|Flato Architects

Once referred to as “Ghost Town,” and described by the San Antonio Express-News as “the biggest homeless shelter run by the homeless,*” the complex had become a site of criminal activity, ranging from theft and vandalism to burglary and assault.Save this picture!© Chris CooperThe neglected property was eventually auctioned on the courthouse steps, and the new owners saw the potential for these three city blocks between the urban corridor of Broadway Street and the San Antonio River to become a revitalized hub for River North. The challenge for the design team was to creatively adapt the existing superstructure into the new owner’s vision and program. The western block of the project connects to the San Antonio River; the eastern block, with frontage off the main urban corridor of Broadway Street, will contain retail and office space on the first floor and housing on levels two through four.Save this picture!© Frank OomsTo achieve the transformation of this urban living compound, the adaptive-reuse construction of 1221 Broadway took shape in two phases: phase one to renovate the existing 300 apartments and five courtyards, and phase two to renovate retail and office space in the Broadway building on the eastern block. Phase one involved re-skinning the existing building and making windows larger to allow more natural daylight in the apartments. The floor plans of twenty-eight different unit types were completely changed from the previous owner’s designs. In addition, the five-story parking garage was finished out and roofed.Save this picture!© Chris CooperThe connection to the five courtyards and to the outdoors creates both a unique oasis and urbane street presence. These courtyards link urban living with nature, and provide outdoor activity and gathering spaces. All circulation is outdoors on single-loaded cantilevered walkways linked by bridges over Avenue B and alleys to the garage.Save this picture!Site PlanThe project has served as a catalyst for nearby urban redevelopment and neighborhood revitalization. Located on the edge of downtown along the San Antonio River, with an underserved residential and commercial district to the north, 1221 Broadway is uniquely positioned to reconnect these disparate parts of the city and bring residential life to the downtown area. Along with the complete makeover of an abandoned superstructure, a B-Cycle station, River Walk access, and a frequent taco truck further enhance this project as a vibrant urban living area.Project gallerySee allShow lessCABII House / Nacho Carbó arquitectoSelected ProjectsFilms & Architecture: “North by Northwest”ArticlesProject locationAddress:1221 Broadway, San Antonio, TexasLocation to be used only as a reference.

A pursuit of internal spaces in this house, as a result, changes the Tokyo cityscape a little.Save this picture!© Forward Stroke inc.An area for one floor is usually desired as large as possible, in particular, in such a narrow site. For this house, the first floor area is small due to the parking space and the second floor is, instead, larger. The outer appearance is examined based on ceiling height, slant line regulations for a building shape.Save this picture!© Forward Stroke inc.There are basic requirements for a house, where people live, such as privacy protection and ample daylight and ventilation. It, however, takes a little ingenuity to satisfy such requirements under a given condition that a site is surrounded by the neighboring buildings. For the site, the southern site across the road is “tentatively” a parking space and no one can tell what will happen in the future. The daylight is, therefore, taken in from the above as much as possible and it is brought downstairs. The living room is on the top floor. The roof terrace facing the blow-by above the living room and the terrace connected with the living room take daylight and air in the house and the light falls on the dining and kitchen room downstairs. The irregular shape at the corner of the site allows the house continuously to keep privacy as well as daylight and ventilation.The building looks quiet only with the entrance on the south façade, it embraces expressive internal spaces where light and shadow change by the minute.Project gallerySee allShow lessNew building for “El Redin” school in Pamplona / Otxotorena ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCall for Participation: Use-ReUse Adaptive ModernismArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

Atlanta remembers Troy Davis on Sept. 21

first_imgTroy Davis“We need to dismantle this unjust system …” Troy Davis had written shortly before his execution by the state of Georgia on Sept. 21, 2011.Atlanta — Hundreds of thousands of people around the world had signed petitions asking for clemency. Dozens of well-known political and religious figures had written letters. People held demonstrations in countless cities and towns and chanted, “I Am Troy Davis!”The horrific crime of capital punishment in the United States was made real to millions in the person of Troy Anthony Davis, who could be executed for a murder with no physical evidence or forensics, no weapon or fingerprints and where most trial witnesses recanted their testimony against him, charging the police with coercion.Many who joined the struggle to stop his state-sponsored murder were convinced of his innocence by the particular facts of his case. The coldly calculated actions of the “justice” system then revealed a deeper truth to them about the system’s inherent racism and class bias.Just days before Davis’s execution, on Sept. 17, 2011, Occupy Wall Street began its historic emergence as a burgeoning new movement of the 99%, those devastated by the economic crisis, unemployment, foreclosures, debt, discrimination and lack of opportunity. At one of its earliest marches that took to the streets of New York in defiance of the police, people raised chants and signs for Troy Davis.A section of Atlanta youth was deeply impacted by Davis’ fight for justice. This last year has seen these youth protest the mass incarceration, police brutality and killings throughout the metro area and support prisoners held in deplorable conditions in Georgia’s prisons and jails.Georgia’s prison work stoppageThey have organized protests and rallies in support of prisoners at Jackson Diagnostic and Classification Center — the same prison where Davis was executed. These prisoners conducted a 45-day hunger strike this summer, demanding an end to extended isolation, access to medical care and personal hygiene products, family visits and phone calls, and an end to guard abuse and brutality.Many of these imprisoned men participated in the historic Georgia prisoners’ work stoppage in December 2010. Since then they have been held in solitary confinement, suffered physical abuse at the hands of guards and ongoing retribution for their alleged leadership of the strike action.To carry out this work, several organizations and individuals have formed Georgians for Prison Abolition. They have called for a National Day of Action against Mass Incarceration on Friday, Sept. 21, to never forget Troy Davis and to meet his last request.In Atlanta, people will assemble at 9 p.m. at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. grave site and march to the park on Peachtree Street at Auburn. The site of the Occupy Atlanta encampment, this park’s name was changed from Woodruff to Troy Davis Park by hundreds of youth, homeless people, and peace and justice activists who occupied the downtown space for weeks in October 2011.At the minute of Troy’s execution, 11:08 p.m., his call for unrelenting action “to never stop fighting for justice” will ring out over the crowd. According to Courtney Hansen of Georgians for Prison Abolition, “Organizers intend the event to not just remember Troy Davis but to build active resistance to the system that killed him and imprisons millions more behind bars and in poverty.”As of Sept. 9, prisoners’ families reported that at least 21 men have resumed a hunger strike since the prison administration has failed to address any of their grievances as promised and guards have beaten a number of them.For the complete wording of the call, go to the facebook page for Georgians for Prison Abolition.That same weekend in Savannah, Troy’s hometown, there will be a three-day conference entitled “From Troy to Trayvon: Empowering Communities to Change Criminal Justice Policies,” sponsored by Community Organized Legal Advocacy or COLA, of Savannah, and Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.

Search underway for 2-year-old who went missing after mom put him to bed: Police

first_imgHampton VA Police(HAMPTON, Va.) — A search is underway in Virginia for a 2-year-old boy who has been missing for days. Noah Tomlin was last seen when he was put to bed at about 1 a.m. Monday at his mobile home in Hampton, police said.His mother went to check on him at around 11 a.m. Monday and didn’t find him, police say. Authorities say she reported him missing at 11:35 a.m. “Since that time an intensive search has been underway,” Hampton Police Chief Terry Sult told reporters Wednesday. “We are still hopeful that we’ll find him safe and sound in some location, but we’re looking at all potential aspects that this case could lead us to.”“We’re looking at everything from the child walking off to the abduction scenario,” he said. “There’s nothing we’re not looking at.” “We have looked on land, water. We have checked trash, dumpsters. We have checked neighborhoods, houses, underneath buildings, in sheds,” Sult said.The search shifted to a landfill Wednesday though no specific information led investigators there, Sult said.The parents are cooperating, Sult said. The mother has been working with detectives, Sult said, and “she’s holding up as about as well as you could expect under the circumstances.”Noah’s mother told ABC affiliate WVEC-TV via text on Wednesday, “I’m working real hard with law enforcement to help find my baby. I can’t have my location known or whereabouts of my other children for their safety.” Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 757-727-6111. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Guided-Missile Frigate Takes Part in PASSEX, Hosts Japan

first_img View post tag: Guided-missile View post tag: PASSEX Training & Education Back to overview,Home naval-today Guided-Missile Frigate Takes Part in PASSEX, Hosts Japan View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: part The guided-missile frigate USS McClusky (FFG 41) participated in a joint forces passing exercise (PASSEX) with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) June 26.The exercise involved the Military Sealift Command fleet replenishment oiler USNS Yukon (T-AO 202), guided-missile destroyer USS Sampson (DDG 102), destroyer JS Mineyuki (DD 124), training vessel JS Asagiri (TV 3516) and the training vessel JS Kashima (TV 3508).The evolution required the ships to line up in diamond formation and perform various evasive maneuvers, flight operations and mock underway replenishments with the Yukon.“It was a fantastic opportunity working with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force,” said Cmdr. Darren Glaser, commanding officer of the McClusky. “Through the many day and night evolutions of the exercise, the crew was able to share the training and experience alongside of the Japanese crew, to better prepare for future maritime missions. McClusky looks forward to more exercises to help strengthen our ties with the Japanese. I look forward to conducting future exercises.” During the exercise, ships from both nations took part in an officer exchange program in order to get a better understanding of how each navy operates.The McClusky hosted two JMSDF junior officers from the Mineyuki and the Asagiri.Ens. Shohei Yamaguchi, assigned to the Asagiri, said it was his first experience on an American ship and was impressed with what he saw.“I’ve never experienced this type of ship and it was interesting to see the differences between (U.S. Navy) and (JMSDF),” Yamaguchi said. “In (the) U.S. there are lots of back up systems and everyone is well educated in case of an emergency.”Yamaguchi also stressed the importance of PASSEX and the U.S. – Japan alliance. “In the future we will work together in other exercises,” he said. “If we don’t know what’s going on in the U.S. Navy then we can’t act together. This training is good experience for co-operational training with the United States.”[mappress]Source: navy, June 30, 2011 Share this articlecenter_img Guided-Missile Frigate Takes Part in PASSEX, Hosts Japan View post tag: Japan View post tag: Navy June 30, 2011 View post tag: hosts View post tag: Frigate View post tag: takeslast_img read more
