Situated on a sloping triangular site facing the sea, the house is conceived as a series of parallel adjoining rooms. They are created by retaining walls, a common feature in the surrounding Mediterranean landscape.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosEach room sits at a different elevation following the topography and contains a dedicated program. Access to the entry volume is located at the highest level of the site. A stair makes the slope flow into the house. This entry condition constitutes the first interior experience of the house, that of a viewing apparatus onto the sea.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe public spaces of the house are located in the center, master bedroom and guestrooms are on either side. Each space is focused on a large opening to the south, contemplating the sea. This is complemented by a smaller window to the north, looking towards the slope. These openings also provide efficient cross ventilation for each room.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe volumes are in shear, a condition that ensures that each outdoor terrace has privacy even if the volumes are adjoining; there are no views from each terrace to the next.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosSliding doors through the double walls mark the passage from one space to the next. The notion of a “cut” through the solid walls is emphasized by the grey marble of the thresholds. Walls are constructed from solid concrete and provide large thermal mass.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosSave this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe east and west facades that face the road and the neighboring buildings have no openings. They protect the interior from the heat of the sun. This creates a barely visible configuration of spaces conveying privacy in its interiors but with maximum views towards the sea.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosIn the interior at adjoining walls double up: built-in furniture and storage spaces; within them are desks, bathroom sink, plate dresser, artwork display. These built-in furniture are custom designed and are arranged along the centerline of the plan creating a dynamic sequence.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe concept of “aggregate” was a generator of form and selection of materials. Aggregation of volumes, aggregate in the raw concrete walls, in the terrazzo floor, roofs filled with gravel and plants.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosMaterials were used that are very familiar in older Greek residential interiors such as terrazzo floors, which is present throughout the house inside and outside as well as marble and plaster render, but used in spaces, forms and combinations that are not so familiar.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosProject gallerySee allShow lessSnøhetta Envisions Riverwalk Masterplan on Industrial Site at Oregon’s Willamette FallsArchitecture NewsWhat Is It Like to Work at MVRDV?

Media coverage curtailed after Burkina Faso coup

first_imgNews May 5, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the situation in Burkina Faso, where the soldiers who staged a coup d’état yesterday have silenced most privately-owned radio and TV stations and are controlling the state-owned national TV broadcaster, RTB. News September 17, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media coverage curtailed after Burkina Faso coup to go further The coup began when members of the Presidential Security Regiment (RSP) – former President Blaise Compaoré’s praetorian guard – stormed the presidential palace during a cabinet meeting yesterday afternoon and took transitional President Michel Kafando, Prime Minister Isaac Zida and other government officials hostage.At the same time, other members of the RSP quickly surrounded RTB headquarters, forced privately-owned radio and TV stations in Ouagadougou to suspend broadcasting, and roughed up several journalists.This morning an army officer read out a statement on the air at RTB announcing that the “National Council for Democracy” had taken power.“We call on the RSP and the rest of the army to act with restraint towards the civilian population and journalists and to allow the media to operate freely,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“In their address, the army said they want inclusive elections. For this to be possible, it is essential that all radio and TV stations are allowed to broadcast without any restrictions and that their reporters are free to move about the city in order to cover developments. Firm orders must be issued to this effect.”Privately-owned broadcasters among RSP’s first targetsAt Radio Oméga – a leading Ouagadougou-based radio station that provided objective coverage of last October’s uprising – RSP soldiers told editor in chief Albert Nagréongo that he should suspend all live broadcasts if he did not want the station to be burned down.The station’s staff complied but the soldiers nonetheless fired in the air as they left and set fire to several motorcycles in the courtyard. The station’s personnel and equipment were spared but the soldiers warned that, “if we come back, it will be worse.” Station manager Alpha Barry asked “the heads of the RSP to make their troops see reason.”At least two privately-owned TV stations were forcibly closed yesterday. At one of them, BF1, members of the RSP manhandled and even whipped journalists and the station is now closed. Privately-owned Burkina Info TV is also closed.Several journalists were the victims of RSP violence while out reporting. Burkina 24 said one of its reporters was injured when soldiers dispersed a crowd that had gathered in Ouaga 2000, near the presidential palace and not far from BF1’s headquarters. A Droit Libre TV crew that was trying to cover developments was roughed up and its cameras were seized.The signals of radio stations broadcasting from Ouagadougou, including local retransmission of Radio France Internationale (RFI), were disconnected yesterday. According to some sources, RFI retransmission resumed this morning. Newspapers appeared but it is unlikely that the Ouagadougou population was able to buy them from newsstands.Ranked 46th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Burkina Faso has enjoyed diverse and good quality media, but they have suffered as a result of the unrest that has shaken the country since President Compaoré’s removal last October.Boureima Ouédraogo, the editor of the newspaper Le Reporter, was sentenced to three years in prison and a fine of 300 euros in a libel case in July – a surprising decision given that, a week before, the transitional government approved a bill decriminalizing media offences.

Foundations Award $728,000 to Support Hillsides Work with Transition Age Youth

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Aurelio Mitjans, a youth advocate at YMO, helps a youth prepare for a job interview. Much of the grant money received in 2014 will support the YMO workforce development program.Through the generosity of several prestigious foundations, Hillsides has raised $728,000 in grant awards this year to help put hundreds of transition-aged youth in Los Angeles County on the path to independence.The foundations that provided support in 2014 were The Angell Foundation, Annenberg Foundation, Bank of the West, California Community Foundation, The Carl and Roberta Deutsch Foundation, Max Factor Family Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, RGK Foundation, The Sidney Stern Memorial Trust, TJX Foundation, and The TK Foundation.Hillsides serves hundreds of disadvantaged youth 16-25 years of age through the Youth Moving On (YMO) program. The program provides housing and supportive services to transition age youth, particularly those transitioning from the foster care and juvenile justice systems. YMO operates through two main components: a supportive housing program that serves about 45 youth each year and the Peer Resource Center, a drop-in center in Pasadena where over 500 transition-aged youth seek assistance with housing, health services, employment and more.The grant awards made it possible for YMO to significantly expand programming and increase the number of youth served. Much of the grant money will support the YMO workforce development program. This popular and effective program provides career counseling, job training classes, assistance with job searches, and paid internships to youth who are eager to work but face daunting obstacles due to difficult childhoods.Hillsides opened the Peer Resource Center in May, 2013 and provided services to 450 youth in its first 12 months of operation. The demand for assistance was much greater than Hillsides anticipated, and the foundation grants gave Hillsides the resources to serve every youth who knocked at the Peer Resource Center’s door.Demand for service continues to grow. “The Peer Resource Center tapped into the tremendous needs of transition-aged youth, particularly those who are trying to move from the foster care and probation systems to independence,” said Thomas Lee, division director of transition-aged youth services at Hillsides.Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, has been serving children and families since 1913. The agency provides high quality care, advocacy, and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments where young people can thrive. Currently, Hillsides serves over 8,500 children and families living in Los Angeles County.
