The renovation of the 1970’s block will see the footprint of the upper levels being expanded out to increase living space whilst maintaining the unique diamond floorplan.The residential tower will contain 6 to 14 apartment units on each floor, each with their own loggia, ranging in area from 40 to 120 square meters and penthouses that will be up to 240 square meters. The system of load bearing walls and columns partially replacing the existing structure will minimise the need for columns within the residential spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wiel Arets ArchitectsRecommended ProductsWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40WindowsSky-FrameRetractable Insect Screen – Sky-Frame FlyAs the corner plot of the tower borders the side of the Flemish Opera, WAA have had to be careful in producing a design that does not overwhelm the ornamental building. A simple yet elegant style achieves a considerate composition of the two buildings by incorporating large polished concrete components, up to 9 meters wide, and seamless windows into the closed cavity façade system. The loggia’s design further provokes simplicity with glass balustrades and the same material palette carried through from the tower’s façade. The redesigned Antwerp Tower will impart a 24-hour energy within this highly trafficked section of the city, while simultaneously creating a live-work-play destination–for residents and visitors alike, explained the architects. On the lower levels there will be a restaurant, offices and wellness areas, accessed through the entrance on the western façade adjacent to the opera and retail on the ground floor that is fronted by the southern pedestrian-only shopping street.

first_img Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources Help by sharing this information RSF_en December 15, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for release of a second journalist imprisoned for “insult” EcuadorAmericas December 24, 2019 Find out more News Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of Milton Chacaguasay Flores, owner and editor of the weekly La Verdad, based in Machala, south-western Ecuador.The journalist, who had been acquitted in a lower court, was sentenced on appeal on 15 November to 10 months in prison for “insulting” a judge and imprisoned two weeks later.This came one month after Freddy Aponte Aponte, of privately-owned local radio Luz y Vida, was jailed for the same reason. He too had been acquitted by a lower court. “These two virtually identical cases inevitably point to the need to decriminalise press offences” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Our concern is not to know if insult was really given in either case. We challenge the principle of prison sentences being handed down for this kind of offence.”“Imprisonment does not put right the offence the complainant considers himself a victim of and it has nothing to do with the protection of society and it will never guard the press against possible abuse.”“The law should be reformed and we urge President Rafael Correa to use his prerogative to pardon the two journalists” it added.Judge Silvio Castillo originally sued Milton Chacaguasay Flores over an article published in September 2007 and attributed to the editor of La Verdad, which implicated him in “illicit enrichment”. Chacaguasay Flores was acquitted in the lower court after he demonstrated to the court that neither he nor the newspaper were behind the article, which had been carried in a free insert and did not even name the judge. Castillo appealed against the acquittal and won his case on 15 November 2008. The same appeal court had earlier sentenced Chacaguasay Flores to eight months in prison in February 2008 for “insulting” a leader of the Christian Socialist Party, José Ugarte Aguilar, whom he reportedly accused of corruption. The journalist’s family said that he had received death threats from the politician, on 1st December. The journalist was initially jailed at the Machala rehabilitation centre and then transferred to Quito, as a “precaution”, the family added. His judicial fate is now in the hands of the country’s highest jurisdiction, the National Court of Justice, which recently upheld Freddy Aponte Aponte’s six-month prison sentence. Press offences remain punishable by prison sentences under Ecuadorian law, contrary to a general trend on the continent towards decriminalisation, under Article 13 of the Inter-American Human Rights Convention and jurisprudence set by the Inter-American Human Rights court.

first_imgThe acknowledgment of Islamic culture’s contribution to Western civilisation remains, for the most part, restricted to the margins of public knowledge in the West. In similar fashion, much of the Islamic world remains unaware of its rich medieval past, its scientific and philosophical dialogues with classical antiquity and medieval Christian Europe. The figure of the cleric played, and still plays, a blocking role in the interpretation of history. The image of the terrorising “heathen Turk” in sermons of Pope Urban II and St Bernard of Clairvaux proved a comforting notion to the Crusader imagination. It was not just a mere war, but became a Christian jihad. Despite this perception of Islam, many denizens of medieval Christian West believed otherwise. The Englishman Adelard of Bath (died 1142) was the first significant populariser of the achievement of Islamic learning. In these achievements, Adelard saw the apotheosis of human knowledge. The Bodleian Library’s new exhibition, ‘Medieval Views of the Cosmos’, centres on the Bodleian’s newly acquired medieval Arabic treatise, the Book of Curiosities, containing diagrams of the heavens and maps of the earth, many of which are without parallels. It dispels the miasma around this period of history and charts an eclectic history of medieval Islamic and Christian cartography, lodging the Book in its various cultural contexts. The reception of Greek, Arab, Persian and Indian influences aided the creativity of Islamic celestial and terrestrial cartography. One such treatise, The Book of the Constellations of the Fixed Stars demonstrates the cultural diversity of Islamic civilisation. The teastained hues of the folios display drawings of each of 48 classical constellations overlapped by the pre-Islamic categorisation of stars called “lunar mansions”. The representation of Orion as a long-sleeved warrior armed with a celestial dagger, formed by red-dotted marks, marries the potency of the visual imagination with the human desire to make sense of one’s surroundings. Indeed, the spirit of human exploration lurks within maps of five river systems in the Book of Curiosities; the Nile, the Oxus, the Euphrates, the Tigris and the Indus. The serpentine quality of the Nile, as it endlessly meanders from one end of the manuscript to another, marked by small tributaries, is remarkable. Furthermore, legends and myths come to form an aspect of the tradition of Islamic cartography with the waqwaq tree, a frightening component of the spirit of exploration. The depiction of brown bodies sprouting out of green vegetation, hanging from the branches, connected by voluminous capillaries of blood wavers between grotesque and grand-guignol.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more

first_imgAtlantic City Electric will improve reliability in Ocean City by installing special equipment to reduce the number of customers affected by power outages.Reclosers will be installed for areas serving every 500 customers or fewer, so when an outage occurs outside of a substation area, fewer homes and businesses will be impacted. Instead of having a couple of thousand customers without power because of a pole accident, for instance, 500 or fewer customers will be affected until repairs are made.Installation of these reclosers will require service interruptions this winter as crews replace existing poles, transformers and wire. Contractors will notify customers before these outages occur. The work also will require road closings and detours around the blocks where work is taking place.For the week of April 1 to 5, the tentative schedule (weather permitting) of service interruptions will be as follows:Monday: 18th Street and Bay AvenueTuesday: 18th Street between Bay Avenue and Simpson AvenueWednesday: Bay Avenue and Arkansas AvenueThursday/Friday: On 24th Street between Bay Avenue and Simpson Avenue Atlantic City Electric crews are pictured working on the lines at 5th Street and Asbury Avenue as part of the service upgrades.last_img read more
