Unlike the Cheongdam Sageori(crossroads) which has wide roads and colorful buildings, Biwon’s site is located at the hill crossing which is on a 6-meter road. Buildings under redevelopment around narrow roads made the horizontal space more stuffy with uniform and dense mass and darkened the scenery of the landscape with their own closed language. The first task was to solve the stuffiness of the earth and has street expansion and vitality.Save this picture!© Jin Yyo-Suk & Hong Seok-GyuDesign Solution [Change of Mass]. As the first stage of design, the scale of a building was made by stacking, and the volume was arranged by applying the city’s regulations and the appropriate area. In the process, the mass began to make a colorful form by alternating and reducing rather than a regular form. In addition, through the external stairway which is positively assigned to the street rather than the closed staircase, it has created a visual extension and a dynamic image in the landscape. Floor specific terraces placed alternately were suggested for users to use them as a yard. It has a hidden garden that can not be found in the city, and the garden serves as both inner and outer transition spaces as well as windy paths.Save this picture!© Jin Yyo-Suk & Hong Seok-GyuSave this picture!1F PlanSave this picture!© Jin Yyo-Suk & Hong Seok-Gyu Utilization of Materials [Brick]. A brick is a material whose value does not change over time. Like good buildings and people, bricks prove their value in proportion to time. Three-dimensional mass and a calm white antique brick as a single material were used to give a grand yet calm feeling while giving the weight of a building itself. In order to make a change of single material, we tried to give unity and diversity to the elevation while making a change in pattern through several stacking methods. From the general stucco work to masonry work, the building was filled with various looks. Save this picture!© Jin Yyo-Suk & Hong Seok-GyuFor Biwon, we only focused on the value of lease and area in terms of the building and ceased to think about the role and value of a building in the city. We tried to propose an answer to the question of the role of architecture in the city through Biwon as well as finding the area. The hidden garden in a city or a terrace, sunken, and stairways to a 6-meter road can be the first step. The closed staircase and the brick-surrounded open staircase create a movement flow line directly connected from the first floor to the second floor, suggesting the pleasure of the way to go, through the expressions of the various patterns and light flow of bricks. And the open terrace is an open space for the city, and the four-story terrace where the light falls between bricks is a space with a hidden garden in the city.Save this picture!© Jin Yyo-Suk & Hong Seok-GyuProject gallerySee allShow lessElizabeth Diller and Studio Fuksas Join Line-Up of Speakers at World Architecture Fe…Architecture NewsNanjing Galaxy Kindergarten / Lacime ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/922409/biwon-the-secret-garden-house-utaa Clipboard Year:  “COPY”last_img read more

Hamas government reinforces control over Gaza Strip media

first_img June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is concerned about a new system of accreditation that Ismael Haniyeh’s government has announced for all telecommunications companies, Internet service providers, broadcast media and news agencies based in the Gaza Strip.“This decisions seems above all to be motivated by Hamas’ desire to control the press,” Reporters Without Borders said. Receive email alerts Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists to go further News News News RSF_en Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Palestine RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes October 15, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Hamas government reinforces control over Gaza Strip media WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Reporters Without Borders is concerned about a new system of accreditation that Ismael Haniyeh’s government has announced for all telecommunications companies, Internet service providers, broadcast media and news agencies based in the Gaza Strip, which has been controlled by the Islamist party Hamas since June 2007.The press freedom organisation also calls for the release of three journalists who have been held without explanation since 12 October in the Gaza Strip town of Deir Al-Balah.Yusef Al-Mansi, the Hamas government’s minister of communication and information technology, told Reporters Without Borders that the aim of his directive, issued on 13 October, was “simply to regulate the work of the media in accordance with the law in effect since 1996.”“This decisions seems above all to be motivated by Hamas’ desire to control the press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Islamist party is trying to give itself the tools that allow it to legally ban news media that show too much support for the Palestinian Authority. “After closing the state-owned Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation, banning distribution of the pro-Fatah newspapers Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and Al-Ayyam and arresting dozens of journalists, the Haniyeh government is going one step further by issuing this highly questionable directive. The Palestinian Authority is no better, as news media affiliated to Hamas are no longer allowed to work in the West Bank.“One of the results of these coercive measures imposed by Hamas is to force Palestinian journalists to censor themselves. They are also helping to delay the return of foreign journalists, who pulled out of the Gaza Strip after British journalist Alan Johnston’s abduction. Pluralism and media diversity are threatened by this kind of decision.”The communication ministry’s directive has been greeted with concern by media owners in the Gaza Strip. Shahdi Al-Kashif, the head of the Ramattan news agency, told Reporters Without Borders that the political motives were much more important than the legal aspects.“Journalists are caught in a game of reprisals between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority,” he said. “Hamas is now asking us to register with the Gaza Strip government, while the Palestinian Authority bans any contact with this government, which it dissolved.”In a separate development, Hamas security services arrested three journalists – Yusef Fayad and Akram Al-Louh, who work for the daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, and online reporter Hani Ismael – at their homes in the central Gaza Strip town of Deir Al-Balah on 12 October and took their computers. They are still being held without charge.

U-20 WOMEN’S WORLD CUP: Falconets in Decisive Clash with China for…

first_imgTODAY(12:30)Japan v ParaguaySpain v USA(3:30)Germany v HaitiChina PR v China “We have no illusions. The Chinese squad is a very ambitious one too, and we have to be at our best to overcome them. We will go out there and give our very best,” Coach Danjuma sounded out this warning to his players ahead of this ultimate Group D clash. Nigeria will reach the competition’s knockout stages for the seventh time in nine editions if they avoid defeat against the Chinese at the Stade de Clos Gastel in Dinan/Lehon.A solitary strike from the penalty spot, by stand-in skipper Rasheedat Ajibade, earned the maximum points against Haiti on Thursday and took the Falconets to second spot in Group D, on goals balance from the Far East Asians, whose 2-1 defeat of Haiti and 0-2 loss to the Germans meant they have a deficit going into today’s decider in Brittany.“It is going to be a very busy encounter from the first blast of the whistle. We are not expecting an easy match. I said from the beginning that if we must reach the Final, we have to play and overcome very tough teams,” Coach Danjuma restated. Certainly, the bigger pressure is on the Chinese, who have to win to secure a place in the last eight.  Right-wing optimists still expect goals-girl Rasheedat Ajibade to dazzle at this championship despite a slow start to the campaign, but many are those who have become impatient wondering when the FC Robo Queens ace forward will deliver on her awesome talent and promise at the World Cup finals.She merely opened a window on her ability at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Costa Rica in 2014 (where Nigeria fell at the quarter final hurdle) and could not make the difference when the Falconets were bumped at the group phase during the last World Cup finals in Papua New Guinea two years ago.Highly rated at home and a firebrand finisher in African qualifying matches, Ajibade has yet to convince at the World Cup.However, today is another day and a spot in the quarter finals could just fire her and the likes of Anam Imo, Chidinma Okeke and Peace Efih to sublime performance in France.World Cup runners-up in 2010 and 2014, semi finalists once and quarter finalists on three occasions, only twice before have the Falconets failed to advance beyond the group phase at this championship.That was at the first edition in Canada in 2002, when a hurriedly assembled squad struggled, and two years ago, when the Nigerian girls were on the plane back home before the quarter finals despite winning two of three matches and finishing with six points.China’s fast-paced game could prove a handful for Nigeria, and the efficiency of long-limbed Chiamaka Nnadozie in goal and the stout defending of Sunday Opeyemi, Mary Ologbosere, Glory Ogbonna and Oluwakemi Famuditi would be required to keep the Asians at bay.Nnadozie has been Nigeria’s revelation of this tournament so far, pulling off a number of magnificent saves against 2010 and 2014 champions Germany and against the Haitians.She was rewarded with the ‘Dare To Dream’ Player of the Match gong against the Haitians. This was a player who was down the pecking order during the African qualifying series, when Onyinyechukwu Okeke held sway in goal.To qualify for the finals, the Nigerian girls pumped nine goals past their Tanzanian counterparts without conceding any, and then secured a 6-2 aggregate win over Morocco.In the final qualifying fixture, they blew South Africa apart 8-0 on aggregate, making for a total of 23 goals for and only two against.
