North of Viana do Castelo, between mountains and sea, Afife has views of wonderful landscapes that interlock perfectly. When the client showed me he had bought the land, it was hard to not be surprised by the fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding landscape and the sea. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesSituated on top of the mountain and protected from north winds, it was clear that the implantation of the house was essential, since this place was the reason for its construction. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesIn order to better relate with the land, the house sits on a platform created by the existing stone walls that define the topography of the site. Some of the existing stone walls were in ruins and had to be rebuilt. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesAs a result of its excellent location, located at the high level, the home is composed of a simple geometric shape, appearing to be stretched in the sun, watching the sea. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesThe western facade features a lookout point with large windows and a balcony. From an existing reclaimed floor, parallel to the house, a pool relates to the garden and the wall.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesProject gallerySee allShow lessTaiwan Tower Proposal / BNKR ArquitecturaArticlesPassenger Terminal Building Proposal / IN&EDIT ArchitectureArticles Share Projects Portugal Afife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos Afife House / Alfredo Resende ArquitectosSave this projectSaveAfife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos 2007 CopyHouses•Portugal ArchDaily Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira Alves+ 18 Share “COPY” Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/169454/afife-house-alfredo-resende-arquitectos Clipboard Architects: Alfredo Resende Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAlfredo Resende ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on September 16, 2011Cite: “Afife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos” 16 Sep 2011.

Maestros y médicos hondureños iniciaron un paro nacional para combatir reformas neoliberales

first_img3 de junio – El 30 de mayo empezó en Honduras un paro nacional en protesta de una serie de reformas anunciadas por el gobierno en los sectores de salud y educación.Las manifestaciones, que siguieron el viernes, sufrieron represiones brutales por parte de la policía. Es un escenario que se ha visto repetidamente durante el gobierno del presidente Juan Orlando Hernández (JOH).Manifestación de maestrxs en abril en Tegucigalpa, Honduras.El paro nacional y las manifestaciones se han convocado en respuesta a una serie de decretos firmados por el presidente el día 28 de mayo que buscan reestructurar los sectores de salud y educación.Según los maestros y médicos que convocaron el paro, dicha reestructuración resultaría en despidos masivos y la privatización de estos servicios esenciales. En 2010, el gasto del gobierno central en educación era 32,9 por ciento del presupuesto total, hoy es solo 19,9. En salud pública, las cifras son 14,3 por ciento en 2010 y 9,7 por ciento hoy. (Prensa Latina, 31 mayo)Pese a la fuerte represión policial de los manifestantes, el presidente fue obligado a declarar que no habían ni despidos masivos ni privatización, y se logró que los decretos presidenciales no fueran ratificados por el Congreso Nacional de la República. Sin embargo, los organizadores de las acciones han indicado que seguirán en protesta hasta que las reformas se descartan completamente.Además de los manifestantes heridos por la policía hondureña, se reporta la quema de varios edificios gubernamentales y policiales. También se reporta que un grupo quemó neumáticos en la entrada de la embajada de los Estados Unidos en Tegucigalpa.No se conoce quien provocó el incendio, y las reacciones de los grupos progresivos han sido varias. Algunos afirman que la acción es justificada, debido a las injerencias recientes del imperialismo norteamericano en el país. Por su parte el expresidente Manuel Zelaya calificó de falso positivo los hechos.Las organizaciones de maestros y médicos han afirmado que el paro continuará con manifestaciones planeadas para el lunes y martes. Del golpe de estado en 2009 a la dictadura de JOHManuel Zelaya fue presidente de 2006 a 2009, cuando fue víctima de un golpe de estado después de proponer un referendo para medir el interés público en una reforma constitucional.Aunque el ejército, que secuestró a Zelaya y lo mandó a Costa Rica, argumentaba que Zelaya buscaba un segundo término (que violaría la constitución), la verdadera razón por el golpe fue la política exterior progresista del gobierno de Zelaya.En 2008, Zelaya expresó el deseo de unirse a la Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América (ALBA), una organización regional promovida por los gobiernos de Venezuela y Cuba para combatir la influencia del imperialismo norteamericano.Esto representaba un paso inaceptable para la oligarquía hondureña, que ya se oponía al gobierno progresista. Cuando encontraron la oportunidad, usaron el control que tenían sobre los medios de comunicación para fabricar una crisis constitucional y llevar a cabo el golpe.Públicamente, el gobierno estadounidense de Barack Obama condenó el golpe, pero dejo que se llevara a cabo el golpe. Los correos electrónicos de Hillary Clinton, que en aquel momento era Secretaria de Estado, revelan que el gobierno norteamericano negociaba con los líderes del golpe, que muchos de los cuales fueron entrenados en la Escuela de las Américas y tenían relaciones personales con el Pentágono.Los Estados Unidos reconoció los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales en Noviembre de ese año aunque se celebraron bajo una junta militar. El nuevo presidente conservador, Porfirio Lobo Sosa, recibió grandes alabanzas del gobierno de Obama por sus esfuerzos hacia la “reconciliación” pese a que durante su mandato empezaron a desaparecer periodistas que apoyaban a Zelaya o se oponían al golpe.El actual presidente llegó al poder en 2014 y ha sido criticado por su corrupción y el aumento de la represión estatal contra sus rivales. Aunque la derecha había acusado a Zelaya de buscar otro término presidencial como pretexto para el golpe de 2009, JOH se presentó a la reelección sin problemas judiciales.La elección de 2017 fue caracterizado por un fraude descarado por parte del partido de JOH. La cuenta de votos se suspendió varias veces, en una instancia durante tres días, y al reanudar había desaparecido misteriosamente la ventaja de casi 5 por ciento de los votos del candidato opositor.La manipulación de la cuenta fue tan obvia que incluso la Organización de Estados Americanos, que normalmente sirve para sellar los decretos imperiales de EE.UU., condenó el fraude. Washington reconoció inmediatamente los resultados.El pueblo hondureño tomó las calles para protestar el robo de la presidencia, cosa que provocó la represión policial con gases lacrimógenos y un toque de queda de diez días. Desde entonces no ha cesado la lucha intensa para restaurar la democracia en el país centroamericano.La ofensiva neoliberal de JOHCuando la derecha asumió el poder en Honduras en 2009, inmediatamente empezó a implementar el típico programa neoliberal. El objetivo de estos élites, en servicio del imperialismo, es destruir los servicios sociales y abrir el país a los deseos de las transnacionales.El ataque actual contra la salud y la educación pública sería el golpe final contra estos servicios que llevan una década asediado por la derecha. Los salarios escolares fueron congelados de 2010 a 2016, y desde entonces solo han tenido incrementos pequeños. Se ha terminado casi por completo la inversión en infraestructura escolar. En los hospitales faltan todo tipo de insumos, pero se sigue cortando el presupuesto, haciendo que suban los precios para las familias que necesitan los servicios médicos.El robo de tierras indígenas no ha cesado desde que llegaron los conquistadores españoles, pero bajo JOH ha intensificado. El asesinato de Berta Cáceres por fuerzas estatales entrenados por EEUU es solo el ejemplo más famoso del uso de la violencia estatal para silenciar a los pueblos originarios ejerciendo sus derechos a sus tierras ancestrales.Si la desinversión en servicios públicos, el despojo de los territorios indígenas, y la represión estatal no fuera suficiente, el imperialismo ahora busca crear “Zonas de empleo y desarrollo económico.” (ZEDE)Estas “ciudades modelo” serían ciudades orientadas a la inversión extranjera, controlados por una comisión escogido directamente por el presidente. Estas ciudades tendrán su propio sistema judicial, económico, y administrativo.La oligarquía en su propia propaganda sobre estas ciudades admite que usan como modelo a Hong Kong, que se fundó como colonia británica para controlar a China después de la Guerra del Opio. (tinyurl.com/y5rb3g65)Estas ZEDEs implican una vuelta al colonialismo directo de siglos pasados, ya que están diseñados para servir como punto de entrada para transnacionales y capital extranjera. Su sistema nominalmente “autónomo” en realidad los convertiría en colonias de las empresas norteamericanas y europeas que quieren operar en la América Central.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Blacker house interior detail, Pasadena, 1974, 20 × 16 × 1 in. © Kochi Prefecture, Ishimoto Yasuhiro Photo Center.Japanese-American photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto’s photographs of Greene & Greene architecture will be shown for the first time in the United States in a focused loan exhibition on view at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens from June 18 through Oct. 3, 2016. The influential photographer turned his lens toward the work of California Arts and Crafts architects Greene & Greene in 1974, producing a suite of images for the Japanese design magazine Approach. Before his death, Ishimoto expressed his wish to have these photographs shown in the United States. Now, more than 40 years after the photos were made, his wish will come true.Forty-six sumptuous black-and-white photographs printed by the artist and on loan from The Museum of Art, Kochi in Japan will showcase the Approach magazine commission along with six seminal photographs that Ishimoto made of the 17th-century Katsura Imperial Villa in Japan in 1954.“Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Bilingual Photography and the Architecture of Greene & Greene” coincides with the reopening of a refreshed permanent display of Greene & Greene furniture (organized in collaboration with the Gamble House/University of Southern California). The proximity of the two galleries will allow visitors to experience the designs of Charles and Henry Greene (known for principled, hand-crafted, and distinctive early 20th-century Arts and Crafts homes) just a few yards away from their photographic interpretations by Ishimoto.“Yasuhiro Ishimoto’s beautifully sensitive photographs of famous Greene & Greene commissions are extraordinary in their composition, texture, and perception, and will add new meaning for visitors, as they wander the galleries and explore our collections,” said Kevin Salatino, Hannah and Russel Kully Director of the Art Collections at The Huntington. “We are seriously committed to collecting, and displaying, works that represent both the field of American Arts and Crafts as well as its predecessor, the European Design Reform movement. Being able to showcase Ishimoto’s work provides a fascinating, and exquisite, interpretation of that world.”Although the Japanese influence on the architecture of the Greene brothers has been widely acknowledged, this exhibition is the first in the United States to examine the influence from a Japanese perspective.“Ishimoto’s images represent a unique vision, fashioned by his birth and education in the United States and a subsequent career in Japan, where he ultimately became a naturalized citizen,” said Anne Mallek, former curator of the Gamble House, a 1908 Greene & Greene structure in Pasadena, Calif. “He developed a new and personal perspective, liberated from historical precedent or framework, so he could capture a 17th-century villa near Kyoto, or the Greenes’ work, in a manner bordering on the abstract. His images don’t set the works of architecture apart from the viewer, nor do they put them on a pedestal. One is pulled in, as if to observe with the photographer the details that only the architects and craftsmen may have cared about in creating the structure.” Mallek curated the exhibition with Edward R. “Ted” Bosley, Gamble House director.American post-World War II photographer Minor White called Ishimoto a “visual bi-linguist”—someone who, by circumstances of birth and education, became uniquely suited to interpret cultural links between Japan and America. Born in San Francisco in 1921 to immigrant parents, Yasuhiro Ishimoto grew up in Japan and returned to California to attend college in 1939. In 1942, he was removed to a Colorado internment camp, where he spent the war years nurturing an interest in photography. He later enrolled at the Chicago Institute of Design, founded by ex-Bauhaus instructor László Moholy-Nagy. Ishimoto returned to Japan in the 1960s.“Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Bilingual Photography and the Architecture of Greene & Greene” features a gallery booklet and wall text in both English and Japanese, with the installation organized into six thematic categories: pattern, rhythm, post and beam, details, views, light and dark.In a striking example of the photographer’s attention to architectural details, Blacker House with Interior Detail captures a portion of the staircase of the 1907 Robert R. Blacker house in Pasadena. The photograph focuses on the softness of a carved spiral, or whirlpool form—traditionally known in Japanese as naruto—bringing to life the velvety smooth texture of the hand-sanded teak, as well as the layers and insertions of wood members. The composition demonstrates Ishimoto’s sensitivity to the timeless artistry inherent in the Greenes’ work, in the same manner that his photographs of Katsura Villa 20 years earlier had translated the details of its 17th-century buildings for modern audiences.Another highlight of the exhibition is a view of the Gamble House’s west elevation. The photo captures the house in the late afternoon sun as it highlights the ends of projecting rafter tails, while throwing the undersides of the eaves and sleeping porches into deep shadow. “Ishimoto is playing with contrast here, and how light can transform a building graphically,” said Mallek. “He’s emphasizing its horizontality as the elongated shadow of the sleeping porch roof extends at an angle down the façade of the house.” The image also sympathizes with Charles Greene’s suggested purpose for the extended rafters on the house—Greene once said they were included “because they cast such beautiful shadows.”Such design elements may have been born of the Greenes’ interest in Japanese construction, and many of Ishimoto’s photographs of Katsura Villa and of the Greenes’ work would appear to authenticate this connection. In both groups of images, the artist focuses on the graceful intersections of vertical and horizontal lines in post-and-beam structures, as he does in Gamble House Sleeping Porch Detail. This photograph of a structurally complex porch corner of intersecting beams and distinctively shaped railings seems to have been made with a loving eye—planks of wood become soft and undulating, and the use of natural light makes smooth surfaces reflective while architectural shapes glow with a magical quality.“Ishimoto rarely made an image of a structure in its entirety, but chose rather to examine details and create abstractions, focusing on pattern, light, and structure,” said Mallek. “All of the images telegraph his sensitivity to material, texture, form and light.”CreditThis exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the Steven and Kelly McLeod Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by The Rose Hills Foundation, Frank and Toshie Mosher, Harvey and Ellen Knell, Mr. and Mrs. Mark J.

Mayor Gordo Visits Pallet Housing Site for Homeless in Eagle Rock, About 1 Mile West of Pasadena Border

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Business News Mayor Victor Gordo recently visited a temporary housing site to be made of hundreds of small, so-called “pallet housing” units along Pasadena’s border near Eagle Rock and Highland Park.The project, which was approved by the Los Angeles City Council, has led to concerns among residents of West Pasadena and city officials.“I am in touch with Councilmember (Kevin) De León in the city of Los Angeles,” Gordo told Pasadena Now on Tuesday. “It seems the tiny houses are the result of litigation. He assures me that there will be services for the residents of the tiny houses and that safety and security of the residents in and around the tiny home project will be of paramount importance.”Gordo said he plans to stay in touch with De León and other officials in the city of Los Angeles.The LA City Council called for city officials to begin the design process for temporary homeless housing sites at 7570 N. Figueroa St., as well as on an unused section of Arroyo Drive near Avenue 64.A spokesperson for De León told the Boulevard Sentinel that the Eagle Rock site was intended to house up to 134 people, while the Highland Park site was expected to be able to support 224 people.Although he has expressed concerns about the project, Gordo has reiterated his support for affordable housing and helping people experiencing homelessness.“The thinking is that moving people to tiny homes will keep them off the street,” Gordo said. “I’m not 100% convinced that this is the best approach. I believe that there are other approaches that can be taken but this is outside of our jurisdiction. And so we will monitor it closely.“It’s important to the people of Pasadena that the individuals that are going to be living at these homes receive the mental health services and other services that they need. Pasadena residents are very kind and understanding and want people to be housed. We want people to receive services. We just want to ensure that it’s done correctly for the benefit of the residents.”Local residents living nearby have expressed concerns regarding the project, and elected officials have noted a lack of conversation with neighboring cities.Gordo recalled an earlier instance when a similar project was initiated in downtown Los Angeles.Once the site of a shantytown inhabited by people experiencing homelessness, Dome Village, The Washington Post reported, was created in 1993 by homeless advocate Ted Hayes.The 20 polyester fiberglass domes, purchased for $10,000 each with funds provided by ARCO, were designed by architect Craig Chamberlain, a former student of Buckminster Fuller.Hayes intended to create stability for the village’s 34 self-governing tenants. The village offered numerous programs for its residents, including workshops in computer literacy, job seeking, legal issues, and children’s theater, among others.The village folded in 2006 when tenants, who paid $70 a month, were hit with a 700 percent rent hike that resulted in skyrocketing taxes and fees that ranged as high as $18,000-plus per month, according to a Los Angeles Daily News article.“I am concerned,” Gordo said. “It did not work. We’re dealing with human lives here, and we’re dealing importantly with very fragile human lives that need intensive assistance.”According to Gordo, that assistance could include addiction rehabilitation, as well as mental health issues“The health challenges and the need for housing becomes a much more complicated issue than simply putting up tiny homes,” Gordo said. “Four walls, no matter the size, is not sufficient to help the demographic that we’re looking to help. It’s just not.”Gordo said he has another meeting coming up on the matter. He plans to get more information and push for a meeting to explain the matter to residents of Eagle Rock and Pasadena.“We all need socialization,” Gordo said. “We all need all of the different necessities addressed. The folks in Los Angeles tell me that they will be provided on site, and they’re going to get me more information in writing, so I can assure the residents of Pasadena that in fact is the case.“I’ve spoken with members of the L.A. County housing authority, and people who are attempting to house veterans throughout the county, and they tell me, look, we’ve got apartments. But without the services that these vets need to heal their emotional wounds, their medical wounds, their addictions… Without the assistance to heal those wounds, they just leave,” Gordo said. “They house them and then 30 days later a caseworker comes back and the individual is gone. Storing people is not a solution to homelessness. Helping people by providing the requisite services and the housing is the approach that we need to take.” More Cool Stuff EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS HerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Celebrities Who’ve Lost Their FandomsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeauty Make a commentcenter_img Community News 12 recommended1 commentShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Top of the News Your email address will not be published.
