The site is located on the corner of an ordinary residential area that also includes some aspects of semi-industry. Factories, warehouse and high-rise condominiums around the site have increased in recent years. The location is one station from the center of Fukuoka City, and it is located between street where the amount of through traffic is large during the daytime. The client wanted  to build the residential dwelling that also functioned as a showroom which can exhibit the products and the furniture of cast aluminum. Save this picture!elevationKazuya Matsuda wanted to create a dwelling that positively connect with the town. The first floor has the showroom, which displays architectural products and the furniture of cast aluminum designed by  the owners and the atelier space for their work, and there are Japanese-style room and the entrance for their residence. Save this picture!elevationThe second floor has a large atrium that extends from the first floor and residential space for the family. Considering the client’s lifestyle, it was preferable not to think of this dwelling as commercial space and a residential space separately. Kazuya Matsuda wanted to design each space should exist in the vaguely shared. Save this picture!© Nacasa&Partners Inc, Koji FujiiKazuya Matsuda planned the porch in the corner plot so that indoor element can be felt, moreover the town and the building positively have the connection as well because of this space of the showroom and the atelier. This porch lets enough natural light  to the showroom by the effect of the roof made of FRP with the permeability. On the street side, the privacy and sunlight is secured because of covering the upper part with a horizontal louver of red Cedar between pillar and the diagonal pillar of H steel of which phosphoric acid is processed. Because this space exists, the building and the town have a cozy connection and lead it to the residence space of the second floor comfortably at the same time. Save this picture!© Nacasa&Partners Inc, Koji FujiiThe sunlight over this porch and the outside sign, for example, voice of the schoolchild in neighborhood who makes this space as playground, the people who do stand talking, the familier scene, even street noise, is carried with wind and turned into interior as the pleasant sign. Save this picture!© Nacasa&Partners Inc, Koji FujiiAt this facade of wide-opened showroom, the privacy of the housing is achieved because of an easy operation of the cross-sectional side, so that a look of the person who walks along a street and the person who is in residential space doesn’t cross directly. Kazuya Matsuda hope to become an opportunity that the existence of this building creates a pleasant connection to town that has very ordinary atmosphere and human relation we miss.Save this picture!© Nacasa&Partners Inc, Koji FujiiProject gallerySee allShow less’Breaking Borders: New Latin American Architecture’ ExhibitionArticles142 Dwellings Competition Proposal / a/LTA ArchitectsArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/166096/port-design-nico-architect-associates Clipboard CopyHouses•Japan 2011last_img read more

French private sector schemes cut deficit with €2bn investment gain

first_imgThe scheme’s resources, mainly stemming from contributions from companies, amounted to €63.7bn in 2016. This was an increase of 3.1% from 2015, although this was partly the result of tweaks to previous payment calculations. The “real” increase was 2.3%, according to a statement from Agirc and Arrco.Pension benefits, meanwhile, amounted to €73.4bn in 2016, up by 2.8% from 2015.The technical deficit of €4.3bn takes into account a €5.4bn payment made to the schemes by AGFF, a vehicle set up by the Agirc and Arrco to finance the cost of early retirement. The deficit in France’s pension schemes for private sector employees and executives fell by around €700m to €2.24bn in 2016, helped in part by €2bn of return generated by the schemes’ reserves.The aggregate deficit across the two schemes – Arrco, for private sector employees, and Agirc, for executives – stood at €3bn in 2015.The schemes are part of France’s public pay-as-you go pensions system, covering round 22m active members and 15m pensioners. They are separate schemes for now, but are due to merge under reforms agreed in 2015 as part of an effort to tackle the funding shortfall. The technical deficit, which does not include financial returns generated from the investment of scheme reserves, amounted to €4.3bn in 2016.last_img read more

Why the death of George Floyd has resonated throughout the NBA

first_img Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook and other NBA stars pay tribute to Kobe Bryant Legions of fans have been waiting for months to see NBA players gather again in the same building — but not like this.The scene at Minneapolis City Hall was grim and somber, as Stephen Jackson — flanked by Karl-Anthony Towns, Gary Trent Jr. and Josh Okogie among others — spoke passionately and painfully about George Floyd, the man he called “my twin” for their close physical resemblance.Floyd’s death is now famous nationwide after a video was released showing his arrest: While Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinned him to the ground with his knee across Floyd’s neck, Floyd complained that he couldn’t breathe before eventually appearing to pass out. Bystanders asking Chauvin to stop the chokehold were largely ignored. Floyd was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.“A lot of times, when police do things they know that’s wrong, the first thing they try to do is cover it up, and bring up their background to make it seem like the (expletive) that they did was worthy,” said Jackson, a 14-year NBA vet who once played for the Clippers. “When was murder ever worthy? But if it’s a black man, it’s approved.” The momentum of outrage of Floyd’s death, however, has spurred consequences: Four officers involved in the arrest were fired; as of Friday, Chauvin had been arrested and charged with third degree murder. Protests sparked throughout the country, with at least seven people shot in Louisville and the destruction of a police precinct in Minneapolis. Public officials have been caught between attempting to empathize with the frustration of citizens tired of the deaths of black people at the hands of police, while also hoping to maintain a sense of order as riots have escalated.While NBA stars have long been vocal about this particular issue, perhaps most memorably dating back to the death of Trayvon Martin in 2012, the NBA is particularly close to this case. In addition to being Jackson’s friend, Floyd died in Minneapolis, an NBA market. While in another year, the NBA playoffs might keep some occupied from speaking out on social issues, with the league on hiatus, off-court interests are especially piqued, and frustration is being expressed throughout the NBA about Floyd’s death and other similar cases in the last few months.The scale of these responses has spread throughout whole organizations: In an internal memo reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta Hawks announced they would bring in a diversity expert to conduct a workshop for company employees, and invited anyone disturbed by the high-profile deaths to speak out. But many are reacting as individuals, as concerned citizens dismayed by what they see as a chronic injustice.“It’s a sad thing to see young minorities being murdered on camera by people supposed to protect us,” Lakers guard Quinn Cook told Southern California News Group. “You don’t know what can happen. We need to pray for our country, pray for George Floyd and his family, and we have to keep being a voice for reason.”There’s an inherent tension for black athletes between the game and league that has helped them become famous, and the reality that many black people still face profiling and excessive violence for the color of their skin. On “Get Up” on ESPN, former player Jalen Rose spoke to the juxtaposition: “I wish America loved black people as much as they love black culture. Video: What LeBron James said about Jacob Blake … ‘Black people in America are scared’ “We’re not here designed only to entertain,” Rose added. “We’re actually living and breathing human beings that have a multitude of intelligence, work ethic, discipline and talent.”Recent years have seen the NBA’s biggest stars make efforts to expand the scope of their influence, perhaps no one moreso than the Lakers’ LeBron James. His media company Uninterrupted carries the tagline: “More Than An Athlete.” He famously has skirmished with conservative show host Laura Ingraham, who once advised him to “shut up and dribble” (James later backed a documentary by the same name about the history of social activism in sports).In the last few days, James has tweeted frustration about the death of Floyd, posted a photo of himself wearing an “I CAN’T BREATHE” T-shirt from when Eric Garner died in 2014, and posted workout videos of himself listening to hip-hop group Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power.”But James is far from the only NBA luminary to weigh in, and not all are black: Golden State Steve Kerr tweeted early in the week that he believed the Floyd video showed a case of murder. In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Kerr underlined that the black community needs white advocates to help enact real change.“I think most people in my circle can talk about this stuff and we are horrified. And then we move on. Move on to the next day,” Kerr said. “Human nature is to live your own life, take care of yourself, take care of your family. When you see something horrifying, you wanna do something about it. But when you don’t live it, when it’s not in your backyard, not your children, it’s easier for things to slide by. Even when people are outraged.”Related Articles Photos: Lakers defeat Trail Blazers in Game 4 of first-round playoff series Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory On Mamba Night, the Lakers make short work of Blazers to take 3-1 series lead last_img read more
