As such, the neighboring houses and shops encroach upon the site rather closely, so much so that from the start the idea to “look out” from the property was abandoned to instead “look inward” was adopted. Since the client-owner had a vast amount of art collection and wished to display such art in the new house, the theme “House like a Museum” became the design generator. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraThe theme, “Go in to go out,” used in the prefabricated housing system “EDDI’s House” designed and built in collaboration with Daiwa House Industry, was once again applied to the design of this house and, as a result, the rectangular silhouette of the house was pushed to the boundary limits of the 776 square meter property in the center of which was placed a 15-meter diameter circular patio. The thrust of the planning was to allow each and every room to face and to have a view of this central garden. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraNear the entrance and up on a mezzanine in a semi-detached fashion is a Japanese Room able to accommodate occasional guests. Next to it and readily accessible from the entrance is the owner’s Private Office. Leading up from the entrance is a sloping gallery-corridor connecting to the Living, Fireplace, Dining, and Kitchen areas.

From this elevated area a staircase leads to the Family/Home Theater space adjacent to the Children’s Bedrooms and Family Bathroom on the second level. On the south of these bedrooms spread a spacious garden terrace overlooking the circular patio below.

Bamboo laminates are used for all built-in and movable furniture as well, the reason being bamboo, in contrast to wood, grows much more rapidly and hence more eco-friendly. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro NukamuraIn the same vein, much effort has been made to “borrow” from and apply the wisdom of traditional Japanese house design vocabulary such as “Engawa” (peripheral corridor) that fuses or separates as required the inside and the outside, “Tsuboniwa” (tiny patios), “Hisashi” (roof overhangs), “Tsuufuu” (cross ventilation), selected use of evergreens and non-evergreens, roof gardens for extra geothermal insulation—all basically “passive” means of applying natural energy efficiency instead of “forced” mechanical ways expending unnecessary energy.Project gallerySee allShow less2012 ONE Prize Competition: BLIGHT TO MIGHTArticlesYabao Hi-Tech Enterprises Headquarter Park / 10 DesignArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Edward Suzuki Associates Area Area of this architecture project House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki AssociatesSave this projectSaveHouse Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates CopyAbout this officeEdward Suzuki AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesKamakura3D ModelingJapanPublished on April 30, 2012Cite: “House Like a Museum / Edward Suzuki Associates” 30 Apr 2012.

PCHS student Brooks named ‘pilot of the week’ at National Flight Academy

first_img Next UpThrough serious play, Abigail said, the campers learned skills that are important in today’s world, including critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and effective communication.Abigail attended the camp for the third time this year and was “the” pilot of the simulated aircraft carrier for the first time.“You and your partner decide who will be the pilot and who will be the co-pilot,” Abigail said. “If you want to rotate you can and I have done that before but my partner this summer wanted to be the co-pilot. He likes to talk and the co-pilot talks to mission control so that’s what he wanted to do.” You Might Like TRMC celebrates 50 years of service to the community Troy Regional Medical Center has proudly served the residents of Troy and Pike and surrounding counties since 1969. In recognition… read more Abigail was all right with not having to swap into the co-pilot’s role on the simulated aircraft carrier. She had the opportunity to actually fly a plane for a short time earlier this year when she and her sister took advantage of a free plane ride opportunity.The pilot let Abigail take the controls and actually fly the plane and was surprised how she handled the controls. “He asked if I had flown a plane before. I told him I had flown the simulated aircraft carrier at the National Flight Academy and that I loved flying,” she said.Abigail said piloting a simulated aircraft carrier is the next best thing to actually being in the air and at the controls. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “At the academy, there’s a screen that shows your flight pattern and you are given different missions,” she said. “One of our missions was to put out a wildfire and another was a rescue mission from a crashed boat.”The simulated missions were challenging and Abigail said flying in stressful situations can often result in crashes. “One pilot took his plane across the water like it was on a jet ski,” she said, and added with a smile that she, too, was no stranger to a crash.The campers spend much of their time in a high-tech virtual world surrounded with realistic sights, sounds and smells.Abigail said that as member of the STEM program offered through the Pike County School System, she has been well prepared for the camp each time. “I like science, technology, engineering and math,” Abigail said. “When I graduate, I would like to go to MIT but I know that’s a little ambitious so I plan to go to Auburn. My goal is to be an aerospace engineer. I would like to go to the moon one day but only to visit; I wouldn’t want to wear a helmet all the time.”And Mars?“Only if I could go and come back,” Abigail said with a smile.

Late quaternary changes in Antarctic bottom water velocity inferred from sediment grain size in the northern Weddell Sea

first_imgNewly formed bottom water (θ ≤ −0.7°C) in the northern Weddell Sea flows E or NE at speeds up to 10–15 cm/s, with velocity decreasing towards the centre of the Weddell Gyre (preliminary results from long-term current meter moorings). Upper Quaternary sediments from this area contain a fine-grained terrigenous component (from the nepheloid layer) plus biogenic silica (mostly diatoms) with a small amount of ice-rafted debris. In cores from between 61° and 66°S and from 3300 m to 4700 m water-depth, the proportion of biogenic silica increases northwards (corresponding to increasing seasonal extent of open water vs sea-ice cover), and the proportion of silt and well-sorted fine sand in surface sediments increases with average current velocity. Downcore, diatom-rich and diatom-poor sediments alternate on a scale of 1–3 m, and intervals with more diatoms contain a higher proportion of silt to clay. Preliminary stratigraphy suggests the cyclicity in composition and texture is related to glacial-interglacial cyclicity. During warm periods (indirectly correlated with isotope stages 1, 3, 5 etc.) biogenic silica production takes place during several months of each year, and silt and fine sand are transported by bottom currents. During glacial periods with greater sea-ice cover than at present, biogenic productivity was suppressed and no silica was preserved in the sediments: in addition, a lower proportion of terrigenous silt implies that bottom currents were weaker. At sites with a present-day average velocity of 10 cm/s, a Last Glacial Maximum average velocity of 1 cm/s or less is inferred from grain-size measurements.last_img read more
