first_imgPhotographs:  Nelson KonText description provided by the architects. Corten House is an urban house located near the largest park in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The site, long and narrow, contains the program of the house and, its residents, not only have a small external deck with a fireplace on the ground floor, but they also make use of the rooftop and, especially, the park itself for leisure.

The dialogue between the rusty texture on the outside and the stone, wood, white mortar and the glass build the space. The front door of the garage is made of vertical wooden strips and opens entirely onto the street. The main entry door to the house is also made of wood and, despite being of a color similar to metallic plates, the texture and the presence of the material itself, distinguishes the suspended steel box of the frontal façade. The back façade is composed of a glass curtain that confers transparency to the opaque steel box and a suspended volume which contains movable wooden brises. The interior walls of the lot are made of Stone. Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe interior plan for the ground floor is simple: an ample room with a ceiling height of 5.2m and four folding doors that completely open out to the deck and external fireplace, dissolving the limits between interior and exterior; in the living room, a free wooden volume houses the kitchen and utilities program; between this volume and the entrance door there is a staircase that leads to the mezzanine. Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe mezzanine, on the wooden volume, is a singular area for the home-theater. From here there is another staircase leading up to the third floor, to the private program of the house, the three bedrooms. The master bedroom, in the back, has a wooden panel of brises to filter the light and can remain completely open.

This space functions as a solar with a heated pool and a view of the city of São Paulo.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessDenver Art Museum / Studio LibeskindSelected ProjectsSir Geoffrey Jellicoe Award 2011 Call for NominationsArticles Share Projects Houses Year:  CopyHouses•Sao Paulo, Brazil Save this picture!© Nelson Kon+ 28 Share CopyAbout this officeMarcio KoganOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSao PauloHousesBrazilPublished on October 05, 2010Cite: “Corten House / Marcio Kogan” 05 Oct 2010.

first_img Help by sharing this information News Organisation September 29, 2009 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Maintaining status quo is lesser evilcenter_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders prefers a continuation of the status quo in international Internet governance rather than the creation of an inter-governmental system to replace the existing oversight by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), a California-based non-profit.ICANN has until now supervised the Internet under a contract with the US government, but the contract expires tomorrow and so far no announcement has been made as to what will happen next.Perpetuation of the ICANN status quo is vying with alternative models including one proposed by Viviane Reding, the European Commissioner for information society and media, who wants a fully privatised ICANN to be supervised by an Internet G12 that includes an independent judicial wing.“No one underestimates the risks of maintaining an Internet governance system controlled by a single entity,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “But, given the current lack of a better solution, we think it would be better not to meddle with this mechanism. The EU proposal to create a sort of Internet G12 strikes us as dangerous. If it were implemented, nothing would stop countries that censor the Internet domestically, such as China, Saudi Arabia and Burma, from doing everything possible to restrict online access at the world level.”Julliard added: “It is out of the question that governments that prevent their citizens from having unrestricted Internet access should tomorrow become the big shots in a worldwide Internet system. We prefer the current system which, despite its faults and weaknesses, has never threatened the free flow of online information. We therefore urge President Barack Obama not to rush into any decision that could do considerable harm to everyone’s right to unrestricted access to online information. The utmost prudence is required in this matter.”Created by the US government in 1998 and progressively privatised by President Bill Clinton, ICANN manages the system of Internet addresses that connects millions of computers around the world. It also oversees the top-level domain name system, the address suffixes such as .com, .org, .fr, .uk and .nk The status quo is criticised for giving a single government too much power over a worldwide tool in which the financial and political stakes are considerable. It does represent a risk but until now it has favoured the Internet’s development. In fact, ICANN’s supervision has posed almost no problems and has worked well until now. There is no reason to think it could not continue after tomorrow.Reporters Without Borders has expressed its view on Internet governance in the past (see the releases http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=15564 and http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=24352), and has always taken the position that making no changes to a fairly good status quo – to a network that is single and indivisible, as worldwide tool should be – is preferable to imposing a dangerous new model. The continuing neutrality, oneness and indivisibility of this worldwide network depend on its oversight. The Chinese government, for example, could create its own system of domain names and thereby prevent access to its websites from abroad and access to foreign websites from within China. last_img read more

first_img Whether that actually extends to playing a significant role at Arsenal on Sunday remains open to debate. As Ferguson has already set his team the target of eclipsing Chelsea’s 95-point Premier League record, leaving senior players out of a match United have to win to retain any hope of it would seem bizarre. And, whilst relations between Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have thawed considerably since the intense heat of their domestic rivalry started to ease a decade ago, the United manager’s competitive instincts are unlikely to extend to Arsenal being offered a helping hand in their battle to retain a Champions League place. In addition, there is the prospect of Robin van Persie making his first return to the Emirates Stadium and an Arsenal guard of honour to prompt the Red Devils chief into picking a strong team, even if changes may be made from Monday’s win over Aston Villa. That could potentially include the return from injury of skipper Nemanja Vidic and both Jonny Evans and Michael Carrick missing out. “Two of the players – Jonny Evans and Michael Carrick – played with an injury throughout the [Villa] game,” Ferguson told MUTV. “I should have Nemanja and Rio (Ferdinand) back and I can put (Phil) Jones into the middle of the pitch, then we’ll get the experience going to Arsenal. “I desperately want a lot of younger players, the ones who have been on the fringes for the last few weeks, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Nani, to feel their contribution has been big. It’s important to get them involved in the last few weeks.” With the Premier League title now secure, Ferguson will look to expose some of the younger members of the United staff to Premier League combat. The 18-year-old midfielder is the latest promising Belgian to emerge in recent years and was snapped from Anderlecht in 2011. Ferguson has already spoken of the progress Januzaj has made this season and it seems unlikely he would have been given a number without some plan to at least put him on the bench over the remaining four games. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to catapult Adnan Januzaj into his first-team squad after handing him the number 44 shirt for the remainder of the season.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
