The renovation project is located in a huton within a core old quarter of Beijing. It’s a small Siheyuan (a typology of traditional Chinese residence) with three courtyards, with a total length and width of 15 and 42 meters. It’s named as “Qishe” (“Qi” and “she” respectively refers to “seven” and “house” in Chinese language), because its address number in the hutong is 7 and it originally consisted of 7 pitched-roof buildings. The Siheyuan before renovation was old and dilapidated. The basic wooden beams and some arched door openings featuring the style of the Republican era were relatively well preserved, while most of the roofs, walls, doors and windows were badly damaged or disappeared. In the three courtyards, there were many temporary architectural blocks inserted many years ago. After demolishing those blocks, the yards were filled with waste of construction materials and overgrown with weeds, presenting a bleak view.Save this picture!analysis diagramAs approaching the project, the design firm ARCHSTUDIO set two goals: renovating the old and inserting the new. On the one hand, the designers neatened the houses, repaired all the building surfaces, and reinforced the architectural structures, with a view to reproducing the appearance of the traditional Siheyuan. On the other hand, they brought in new living facilities such as bathroom, kitchen and garage, HVAC pipes and lines, as well as new veranda spaces. The old and new are integrated into a new whole, to better meet future functional demands of reception and living for the compound.  Save this picture!aerial view. Image © Ning WangSave this picture!aerial view. Image © Ning WangARCHSTUDIO embedded a veranda — a basic element of traditional Chinese architectures, into the old Siheyuan to link up the seven separated pitched-roof houses. The veranda functions as a circulation route, reshapes the spatial pattern and layers, and provides a playful walking experience as well as fantastic views.Save this picture!street view – entrance. Image © Qingshan WuSave this picture!facade. Image © Ning WangThe front courtyard is mainly used as a garage. ARCHSTUDIO retained its pitched roof, removed the front and back walls, and shifted the entrance door to the side, so as to leave more space for parking. The design team restored and preserved many valuable historical elements such as the gateway and carvings of the arched door opening, and even a dry tree. In addition, the wall between the front and middle courtyards were dismantled and replaced by a transparent veranda.  Save this picture!1st courtyard . Image © Qingshan WuSave this picture!1st courtyard night view. Image © Qingshan WuThe veranda features a curved plane, and presents variations according to different landscapes and spatial functions. It’s closely combined with the curved edges of the pitched roofs, hence forming several arc-shaped transparent spaces, which integrate the houses, landscape and the sky into the same picture. In the front courtyard, part of the veranda’s roof was bended downwards to form a curved wall, behind which are some functional spaces, including the washroom, service room, equipment room and so on.    Save this picture!aerial view. Image © Qingshan WuSave this picture!2nd courtyard night view. Image © Ning WangThe middle courtyard is a public activity space. It previously contained three houses, one on the north, two on the sides. Based on its original layout, ARCHSTUDIO set a living room, a tea room, a dining room and a kitchen, etc. in this area. The designers adopted a symmetric spatial pattern, which inherits the sense of formality of traditional courtyard buildings. Besides, they replaced the former stairs that led to houses with gentle slopes. The slopes and the transparent veranda together enhance the connectivity between the indoor spaces and the open courtyard. The dining room has a folding door, which can open the interior to the outside space completely and extend indoor activities to the courtyard as well. At the middle of the dining room’s back wall, there is an arched door, which was restored and becomes the entrance to the back courtyard.Save this picture!2nd courtyard . Image © Qingshan WuSave this picture!2nd courtyard . Image © Ning WangSave this picture!2nd courtyard . Image © Ning WangThe back courtyard is a dwelling space, mainly consisting of two bedrooms, a tea room, and a study. Its original layout is the same as that of the middle courtyard. The veranda in this area has an undulating plane, which interacts with the three old trees that already existed in the courtyard and at the same time forms several small arc-shaped leisure spaces. The bedrooms are set at the backmost area, featuring a symmetric spatial layout based on the roof ridge. The bathroom in each bedroom is adjacent to a small yard, which ensures ample light and ventilation.Save this picture!3rd courtyard night view. Image © Ning WangSave this picture!3rd courtyard master bedroom. Image © Qingshan WuThe material scheme of the project well combines the old and new. ARCHSTUDIO preserved the textures of traditional architectural materials whilst adding some new materials in an appropriate manner, so as to retain the marks of time, and present the contrast and fusion between the new and old. The original pine wood framework of the Siheyuan was maintained, with its damaged components replaced by the same material. The new veranda, doors, windows and some furniture utilize laminated bamboo panels (a new material that looks like wood and feels like steel), which echo with the old pine wood. The newly built veranda adopts a frame structure, with ribbed beams and panels on the ceiling, in order to maximize transparency and lightness as well as to better blend into the old construction. As for interior design, ARCHSTUDIO brought in various combinations of furniture made of old or new wood, which shows perfect mix of different hues and textures.Save this picture!2nd courtyard entrance. Image © Ning WangSave this picture!2nd courtyard . Image © Qingshan WuThe traditional pitched roofs used no modern waterproof materials and had poor thermal insulation. Considering this, ARCHSTUDIO optimized the roof system and performance on the premise of retaining the original gray tile rooftops. As to the curved roof of the newly built veranda, the designers utilized polymer mortar as the finish, which is smooth and forms contrast with the adjacent textured tile rooftops. The old building walls were restored, by reusing the gray bricks from demolished temporary architectural blocks in the courtyards. The floor of outdoor spaces is paved with the same type of bricks, to ensure visual consistency. Some of the new walls are formed by glass bricks, which have the same size as the old gray bricks. During construction, some stone slices, crocks and a millstone were found unexpectedly, which were later reused as stairs, flowerpots and adornments. The wooden beam waste from the architectural renovation was utilized to make chairs, which gives old materials new life.Save this picture!aerial view.

Siberians can no longer watch TV-2 on their TV sets

first_imgNews February 10, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Siberians can no longer watch TV-2 on their TV sets Follow the news on Russia The Siberian independent television station TV-2 ceased broadcasting by cable on the night of 8 February as a result of being stripped of its licence despite all its efforts to defend its rights and the right of the region’s inhabitants to be informed. RSF_en News News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information to go further News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Organisation May 5, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts RussiaEurope – Central Asia June 2, 2021 Find out more The Tomsk-based broadcaster’s legal appeals and protests by thousands of demonstrators had no effect. After operating for 25 years, TV-2 finally disappeared from cable TV screens just over five weeks after being forced to end over-the-air broadcasting on 1 January. It continues for the time being to broadcast online.TV-2’s broadcasting licence was initially extended last year until 2025 but Roskomnadzor, the federal communications agency, later reversed this decision, attributing it to a “technical error”. RTRS, a state telecommunications network with an over-the-air transmission monopoly, rescinded TV-2’s contract last November on the grounds that it had supposedly contravened an agreement. Encouraged by the big demonstrations in its support, TV-2 filed legal appeals against these decisions by Roskomnadzor and RTRS, and hearings have begun in Moscow and Tomsk. But even if it wins, it will not be able to recover its over-the-air frequency, which has already been given to a state broadcaster.Despite having had to lay off around 100 employees, TV-2 is not giving up and plans to reorganize and step up its online broadcasting. It has launched an appeal for donations by its viewers and has received support from the Sreda Foundation. It will need all the help it can getMake a donation to TV-2 (Russian website)Previous release: Independent Siberian TV station’s forced closure imminent (31.12.2014)(Photo : Radio Svoboda) Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing May 21, 2021 Find out more Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruptionlast_img read more

Celebrate Pasadena’s One City, One Story Community Conversation with Lara Prescott, Author of the 2020 Selection “The Secrets We Kept”

first_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  More Cool Stuff To celebrate the 18th year of Pasadena’s One City, One Story community reading project, the public is invited to a conversation with Lara Prescott, author of this year’s selected novel “The Secrets We Kept”, Thursday, March 5, at 7:00 p.m. in Pasadena Central Library’s Great Hall, 285 E. Walnut St.Prescott will discuss her experiences writing “The Secrets We Kept”. A question and answer session led by Pasadena Public Library Director Michelle Perera will immediately follow. Attendees are encouraged to bring their copies of “The Secrets We Kept” for the author to sign following the discussion. Prescott’s books will also be available for sale and signing following the program. The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available.“The Secrets We Kept” is a thrilling tale of secretaries turned spies, of love and duty, and of sacrifice. Inspired by a true story, the novel details a CIA plot to infiltrate the hearts and minds of Soviet Russia, not with propaganda, but with the greatest love story of the twentieth century: Doctor Zhivago.At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the CIA typing pool and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle Doctor Zhivago out of the USSR, where no one dare publish it, and help Pasternak’s magnum opus make its way into print around the world. Glamorous and sophisticated Sally Forrester is a seasoned spy who has honed her gift for deceit all over the world–using her magnetism and charm to pry secrets out of powerful men. Irina is a complete novice, and under Sally’s tutelage quickly learns how to blend in, make drops, and invisibly ferry classified documents.“The Secrets We Kept” combines a legendary literary love story — the decades-long affair between Pasternak and his mistress and muse, Olga Ivinskaya — with a narrative about two women empowered to lead lives of extraordinary intrigue and risk. From Pasternak’s country estate outside Moscow to the brutalities of the Gulag, from Washington, D.C. to Paris and Milan, “The Secrets We Kept” captures a watershed moment in the history of literature — told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail. At the center of this unforgettable debut is the powerful belief that a piece of art can change the world.Author Lara Prescott’s debut novel, “The Secrets We Kept” has been translated into 28 languages and will be adapted for film by The Ink Factory and Marc Platt Productions. Prescott received her master of fine arts degree from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas. She studied political science at American University in Washington, D.C. and international development in Namibia and South Africa. Prior to writing fiction, Prescott worked as a political campaign consultant. Her writing has appeared in The Southern Review, The Hudson Review, Crazyhorse, and more. She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and cats.Pasadena Public Library’s annual One City, One Story program is designed to broaden and deepen an appreciation of reading in Pasadena by engaging the community in dialog around a single literary work.
