Tower B1 is part of the Porta di Roma shopping centre, designed by Valle Architetti. This large multi-functional centre is part of the Urban Plan of the Bufalotta district, a settlement of 10,000 inhabitants with housing and services situated along the GRA ring road to the north of Rome and was also designed by Valle Architetti.Save this picture!© Giuseppe Dall’ArcheThe shopping centre is a large multi-storey building with two levels for underground parking and two floors above for shopping arcades and offices. On the outside the building is organized into a series of external terraced squares that join the various shopping areas. The entire structure is covered by tufo sandstone-coloured prefabricated concrete panels and seems to be a kind of artificial terrain from which towers of skylights jut out and light the interior arcades and, of course, Tower B1, all finished with metal cladding that stands out in the general skyline. Tower B1, the last construction of Porta di Roma, was initially planned to accommodate a hotel. Its intended use was later changed during works following the rediscovery of important archaeological remains in another plot of land which was to be used for accommodation and offices in the Bufalotta Plan, which led to the transfer of the planned facilities to the present building when its structures had already been completed. This random incident led to an important review of the design but it was absorbed well by the flexibility of the standard floor already designed to accommodate various functions and the addition of loggias that enlivened the façades.Save this picture!© Giuseppe Dall’ArcheTower B1 has parking areas in the basement shared with the shopping centre, as well as a floor with entrances, common areas and three apartments with a garden, five floors of offices and 7 floors with residential apartments of various sizes. The standard floor, designed with a communal staircase, central corridor and studio flats of 32 square metres, was transformed into two-room apartments of 60 square metres that take the place of two hotel rooms from which a bathroom is subtracted. On the west side there are two larger two or three room apartments on the side with the best view. On the floor of offices, one office unit takes the place of three hotel rooms. The distribution of the standard floor is therefore flexible and can be adapted for different functions and sizes.Save this picture!© Giuseppe Dall’ArcheOn the façades the transformation into residences and offices has been characterized by the addition of terraces for the new apartments. To avoid a series of repetitive isolated terraces, the exteriors have been grouped into volumes of loggias clad with micro-perforated sheets and characterized by a pattern of alternating bored-holes on each level. They create a pierced screen that has the appearance of a fabric on the façades and cross-stitching on the corners of the larger apartments to the west. White screens cover blue loggias, while the main volume is metalized silver: all the exteriors are clad in high density HPL in these two colours. On the south- east façade, where there are no terraces, instead a graphic motif has been created similar to that of the loggias in blue crystalline photovoltaic panels: this is the first entirely photovoltaic façade in the city of Rome, with photovoltaic panels connected to electrical sensors that power the condominium water heating and electricity systems. An additional triangular volume covered by photovoltaic panels can be found on the roof covering the technical volumes. Tower B1 at Porta di Roma is characterized by functional flexibility, volumetric organization, different spatial planes on the façades, and energy innovation.Save this picture!Courtesy of Valle ArchitettiProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding Trust International Open International Design CompetitionArticlesKeelung Harbor Competition Entry / PAR + SESArticlesProject locationAddress:Roma, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

The building housing the archives of the département of Bas-Rhin is the only such building constructed by the German administration in the Reichsland of Alsace-Moselle, in the heart of the Neustadt of Strasbourg. This imposing, monumental building was an integral part of the architectural and urban planning scheme for the Neustadt, which includes the University and Saint- Maurice districts, and of the cultural and urban development strategy of the Second Reich, which included the construction of the National and University Library in 1890.Save this picture!© Pierre PommereauSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Pierre PommereauThe style is eclectic: a mixture of Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Classical. The two original archive buildings, a conservation facility and an administrative building were constructed by the Wilhelm Jerschke firm following plans provided by the government architect Maximilian Metzenthin, assisted by Samuel Landshut and Paul Cavael, both of whom were tasked with supervising the work. The project was specially designed to house archive collections, which was unusual for the period.Save this picture!© Pierre PommereauThis meant that it had to fulfill a range of conservation-related requirements. In 1929-1931, a second archive building was added to the north, designed by the architect of the département Paul Jablot, based on the initial German project, which planned three symmetrical buildings connected by galleries. Unlike the other two, this building is made of reinforced concrete, with metal floor structures and glass slabs. In 1971, a new reinforced concrete archive building faced with artificial stone, designed by the architect Mario Cardosi, was built to the north.Save this picture!© Pierre PommereauSave this picture!© Pierre PommereauIn 1971,  the Archives Départementales held almost 20 linear kilometres of documents. By the mid-2000s this had risen to 30 kilometres and the building was full to capacity. The decision was made to construct a new building that could house current and future archives in improved conditions, and that could cater to an increasingly diversified public. As the original building was now vacant, it was ripe for a restructuring and rehabilitation project that would nevertheless retain its historic authenticity. The original façades, window frames, and part of the metal structure have been restored. Behind them stands a building with curved outlines, large terraces, and living walls.Save this picture!© Pierre PommereauProject gallerySee allShow lessChristopher Alexander is Building a Legacy in BeautyArticlesSHUIBEI International Center / AedasSelected Projects Share “COPY” Area:  4800 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Rehabilitation Old Departmental Archives Housing / Patrick Schweitzer & Associés Save this picture!© Pierre Pommereau+ 13Curated by Paula Pintos Share Rehabilitation Old Departmental Archives Housing / Patrick Schweitzer & AssociésSave this projectSaveRehabilitation Old Departmental Archives Housing / Patrick Schweitzer & Associés Projects “COPY” SBE Ingénierie ArchDaily Architects: Patrick Schweitzer & Associés Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img CopyApartments•Strasbourg, France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945028/rehabilitation-old-departmental-archives-housing-patrick-schweitzer-and-associes Clipboard 2018 Construction: Photographs:  Pierre Pommereau Year:  Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945028/rehabilitation-old-departmental-archives-housing-patrick-schweitzer-and-associes Clipboard Apartments CopyAbout this officePatrick Schweitzer & AssociésOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsStrasbourgOn FacebookFrancePublished on August 09, 2020Cite: “Rehabilitation Old Departmental Archives Housing / Patrick Schweitzer & Associés” 09 Aug 2020.

Sense launches new online donation system

first_imgSense launches new online donation system Emma Clark, Web and Information Officer at Sense, adds “As a medium sized charity it hasn’t been cost-effective for Sense to take online donations of less than £10 up until now. By extending this, and accepting smaller amounts, we aim to increase our online donations considerably.”Ymogen’s e-payment technology also allows publishers to sell content or services over the Internet. Any form of digital content, including articles, news, games, and horoscopes can be charged to the user’s preferred bill.

Sense, the charity for children and adults who are both deaf and blind, has joined forces with only online payment mediation service Ymogen to trial a new method of accepting donations online.The new system makes it cost-effective for people to give smaller amounts than those usually made by credit card. Visitors to Sense’s Website can now donate as little as £1. The visitor can then choose their own payment option, which includes donating by mobile phone or credit and debit cards, and will soon be expanded to utility bills and bank accounts. Paul Amadi, Director of Fundraising at Sense, says, “Ymogen’s online payment mediation service means donors can give small amounts to Sense at their own convenience, in any number of ways, something we’re very excited about.” Advertisement  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 7 August 2002 | Newslast_img read more

These podcasts help to show that gaming for good is the latest example of how charities can bring purpose to people’s lives by enlisting them in joining their cause.The potential of gaming for good is enormous and it just needs more charities to start talking about it to their audiences.   Gaming for good: three Charity Chat podcast episodes <p>&nbsp;<br>In episode 67, we spoke with <strong>Lucy Squance</strong> about how Alzheimers Research UK and many other charities are embracing gaming in order to deliver for their causes.<br><iframe loading=”lazy” src=”https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/684922894&amp;color=ff5500″ width=”100%” height=”166″ frameborder=”no” scrolling=”no”> Tagged with: charity chat Gaming Justgiving podcast streaming Perhaps, like me, your first memory of computer games is the grainy Super Mario Bros on the impossibly small Gameboy screen, and the unfathomably addictive, efficient-block-stacking game, Tetris. The rate of evolution of gaming over the past 30+ years means that our first gaming memories can help to define our age, as rings do for a tree.Games in vibrant colour, with amazingly realistic graphics, played with people across the world were as much a thing of sci-fi as the internet was back when I completed Super Mario Bros, twice. Today, we all carry a mobile phone that works part-time as a gaming technology and yet is capable of storing hundreds of games far more detailed than anything you could ever find on the Gameboy. It now feels natural for us all to share our lives with people around the planet using every conceivable platform and format.The world of online gaming seems both omnipresent and, for some including myself, something out of Omni magazine. The world, or perhaps universe, of online gaming is accessible for all. It is rich in opportunities to overcome obstacles, play with others, and escape into increasingly life-like virtual worlds. But here in our physical world, where so much work needs to be done to address wrongs, find cures, and help others, what can gaming and the virtual world contribute? There are some answers in many of the Charity Chat podcast episodes that I have had the pleasure of recording with some rather splendid people.In episode 63 of the Charity Chat podcast, we spoke with Natasha Stone, Head of Emerging Markets at JustGiving, about what gaming for good is and how gamers can raise funds for the charities they love. </p> About Samuel Davies Samuel Davies is a fundraising leader and trustee and Chair of Charity Chat and regularly produces their podcast episodes. He has been fundraising since the early 2000s and provide a pro bono fundraising training and advice service to small charities.

CMES Outreach Center holds Arabic teacher training program

first_imgEarlier this summer, 29 undergraduate students from three countries and 10 states came to Harvard’s campus for advanced training in Arabic language and culture teaching. They were here for an intensive three-week workshop, the Arabic Institute for the Next Generation, run through the Outreach Center at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. Funded by a STARTALK grant to advance the teaching of Arabic in high schools, the program was designed to support the growing national demand for trained and certified high school Arabic teachers by introducing highly proficient Arabic language undergraduate students with little or no teaching experience to the content, pedagogy, and approach skills useful both to teach Arabic in grade nine to twelve classrooms and to pursue licensure from relevant state departments of education. Held May 23 through June 8, 2012, the Arabic Institute for the Next Generation was offered at no charge to Arabic language students from colleges, universities, and community colleges.“As a Department of Education National Resource Center, the Outreach Center works to support the advancement of knowledge about the languages and cultures of the Middle East region. The chance to collaborate with the STARTALK program, Harvard faculty, graduate students from Harvard and other schools, as well as with K-12 teachers of Arabic around the country is a natural fit and one we are proud to be a part of,” said Paul Beran, director of the Outreach Center.
