They asked us to build a 2100 sft single level pavilion as a retreat to escape the frenetic pace of Mumbai life and to reinvigorate the senses.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JWe envisioned a single level pavilion spatially subdivided onto two primary zones; one for engagement with the view during the day and the other as a quiet retreat at night. The living spaces are extroverted and permeable allowing nature to penetrate its envelope; the private spaces are introverted and protected.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Floor PlanOne of the challenges of the pavilion was to admit the right quality of natural light not only from the periphery but also into its internal volumes. To this end, we created a series of dramatic skylights to illuminate the internal spaces evenly. The angular shapes of the skylights were inspired by the looming profiles of the mountain peaks to the east and west of the house. Each of the skylights admits a soft quality of north light into the Living, kitchen, foyer, and bathrooms Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe architecture is built from the readily available local black basalt stone which was found on the site just 5 to 6 feet below ground. The stone is of volcanic origin and available in abundance across the Deccan Plateau. We used the stone as a random dry pack cladding along the entire extent of the exterior walls and on a few internal accent walls.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe contoured land allowed us to work with the natural topography of the site. Rather than creating a split-level house to negotiate the slope, we created a retaining wall enclosure and a ramp alongside it to arrive at the entrance 3’-6” below.Save this picture!DiagramWe had to exercise a great deal of restraint in the furniture and accessories, choosing to customize each piece to be in harmony with the architectural intent. Accessories were all sourced from Maharashtra, brass and copper vessels from Nasik and Bidriware from Aurangabad.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe primary objective of the house was to absorb the natural environment,to open itself up to the view.But in doing so we had to remain cognizantof the physical presence and the environmental impact of our architecture on the hill.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JOriginally published on May 31, 2017. Project gallerySee allShow lessSalesianos Pamplona Institute / Garmendia Cordero Arquitectos + TCGA ArquitectosSelected ProjectsP.O.M House / NNA+Selected Projects Share Projectslast_img read more

Alabama LGBTQ struggle wins

first_imgDecades of lesbian/gay/bi/trans/queer organizing have won two more important victories in the U.S., this time in Alabama.Alabama has been a reactionary hotspot of Republican rear-guard opposition to LGBTQ rights. But on March 7, the U.S. Supreme Court restored adoption rights denied by the Alabama Supreme Court to a lesbian mother divorced from her same-sex partner.The couple had been in a 16-year relationship and had co-parented three children. This historic ruling affirms same-sex adoptions in the more than 30 states that still do not recognize them despite last year’s Supreme Court decision affirming the right to same-sex marriage.Same-sex marriage has been explicitly illegal in Alabama — based on a 1996 gubernatorial executive order, a 1998 legislative bill and a 2006 “anti-gay marriage” state constitutional amendment. In January, the “Christian Nation” Chief Justice of the state Supreme Court, Roy Moore, ordered county probate judges to obey their “ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license” contrary to those state laws. (, Jan. 6)However, LGBTQ activists mobilized tremendous public and legal pressure, forcing the Alabama Supreme Court on March 4 to rule that county judges must issue same-sex marriage licenses. Continued struggle for justice will be necessary, since state Supreme Court judges ordered compliance with one sentence — and then wrote a decision with 169 additional pages detailing their continued homophobic opposition to same-sex marriage.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Total production is forecast at 1.05 billion bushels.Soybean yield is forecast at 55 bushels per acre, up 5 bushels from the 2015 state average yield, but a half bushel short of 2014’s record yield. Total production is forecast at 312.4 million bushels, up 14 percent from last year to a new record high.Winter wheat yield is estimated at 80 bushels per acre, 4 bushels above the previous year and a state record, if realized. Winter wheat production is forecast at 25.6 million bushels.Hay producers expect to harvest 210,000 acres of alfalfa hay with an average yield of 4.20 tons per acre. Total production is forecast at 882,000 tons, down 2 percent from last year. All other hay for harvest is expected at 360,000 tons with an average yield of 2.40 tons per acre. Total state production for all otherhay is forecast at 864,000 tons, up 14 percent from the previous year.“After the slow start to planting across the state, it is good to see that we are expecting to see near record yields and a strong soybean crop this fall,” said David Rodibaugh, Indiana Soybean Alliance director from Jasper County. Rodibaugh and Anngie Steinbarger, ISA director from Shelby County, attended the USDA crop report announcement in Washington, D.C. to hear the forecast firsthand and talk to USDA economists about how the report affects U.S. farmers.While some areas of Indiana have seen corn yields decline in recent week, the USDA report puts Hoosier corn production for 2016 at over 1 billion bushels. “After the difficult growing season and below average production of 2015, it was good to hear that the corn crop here in Indiana and across the U.S. looks promising,” said Jacob Walker, Indiana Corn Marketing Council director from Dekalb County. “While this report does not bring us a lot of hope that we’ll see improved prices for our corn now through harvest, at least Hoosier farmers will have a plentiful crop to market come this fall.” Walker and ICMC directors Mike Beard of Clinton County and Herb Ringel of Wabash County, attended the USDA crop report announcement in Washington, D.C. to hear the forecast firsthand and talk to USDA economists about how the report affects U.S. farmers.
