The project consists of the expansion of a 1960’s single unit house, transforming it into a hairdresser shop and residence for the owners, a young entrepreneur couple. The two programs – hairdresser shop and residence – were separated by relocating them according to their relation to the street through regular and compact volumes differentiated by the use of color. The hairdresser shop is a brown parallelepiped with the large front towards the street. The house is developed in a red cube towards the backyard, conserving the old dwelling’s structure on the first level, with the second floor emphasized over the hairdresser shop. The volumes are covered with fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) panels, in modules that optimize their industrial format. The hairdresser shop’s access is defined within that modulation and its interior space is illuminated through a skylight. Glass was also utilized in the house, incorporated as a new enveloping material. The second level corner windows were designed according to the requirements of each interior space. In the bathroom, an elevated window controls the view from the exterior.

Located on five acres of dense Ohia forest, this cast-in-place concrete house frames indoor and outdoor living spaces along with views of the forest, the sky, and the coastline on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Laminated beams and wood planks make up the roof that hangs below it. The concrete beam allows for sizable spans of uninterrupted glass and covered outdoor space, which creates a permeable edge between the man-made and nature. These huge expanses of openness amplify the sensation of living in the Ohia forest.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteOhia trees are endemic to Hawaii. They are the first trees to grow on new lava flows. Lavaflow 7 sits on a 1955 lava flow on the slopes of Kilauea crater. The Ohia’s brilliant red flower, called the Lehua, are a striking contrast to the ruddy green leaves and shades of gray of the tree’s bark and the black lava. Like the Ohia, the gray concrete house blends into the existing landscape of lava and trees while splashes of color in the house mimic the Lehua. Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe nature of the house is long and thin, with private and public areas divided by a lanai and bisected by a lap pool. The thinness of the house provides passive cooling through cross ventilation allowing for the elimination of mechanical air conditioning, consistent and diffused light quality in the rooms through out the day, and a view of the forest, sky, and ocean from every room. Other sustainable features include a rainwater catchment system that supplies all water used along with a solar heating system for domestic hot water. A loose distribution of spaces around the few solid walls creates a house that is equally open in all directions and welcomes nature in.

Ch House / Domb Architecture

first_img Photographs ArchDaily CopyText description provided by the architects. A house in the periphery of Tel Aviv, ISRAEL. The design is clean and very limited in architectural elements. Basic finish materials: white plaster, iron and glass. The old house served the family while raising children. Now, when the children left home, it is home for the couple and serves for hosting the family and the grandchildren. The clients wanted a modern house without levels, open, but with intimate corners for the family. It was important for the couple to stay at the same neighborhood, but to build a house according to their new needs.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSince they didn’t succeed to find land they loved, and preferred to stay in the old residence environment – they decided to build a new house on the old home base. Not to destroy the old infrastructure – but planed to use it for the new house. A lot of advantages are in renovating old house: Understanding the far and near environment, knowing the site and the existing plan, adopting them to the new needs of the new program, as well as saving money and time of building permits and renovation.Because we left the existing skeleton base, floor heights stays low, and the old floors and columns- formed a lot of planning conditions. The new design used strong architectural language that distinct the volumes of the building and hide the old columns and ceilings. Because of the low ceiling height we had to redesign wisely the lighting system and the air conditioning- not to lower the ceilings (Air condition hides in the walls).Save this picture!© Amit GeronAt work we had to align the frame of the house, and had to fill up to 8 cm thick plaster. The building is close in the front and sides, and very open to the back garden Small number of functional spaces -projecting in the number of openings. Fewer bedrooms – needs fewer windows. Heavy sealed shell on 3 sides, compared with large glass walls to the back – reinforcing the connection of the house to the garden.Heavy beam, surrounding the house and garden area, shading doorways and seating areas. At the entrance a large water element, a “reflecting pool”, this reflects the front of the house as a mirror, relaxing and creates “white noise” that disconnects the entrance from the noisy outside road. A floating wooden bridge leads guest to the big “front door”. House revolves around a central staircase – transparent and connects the different spaces of the open ground floor.Save this picture!© Amit GeronOn one side- of the living room and family room, front dining room, and the kitchen with the intimate dining corner, pantry and outside kitchen. The kitchen is produced by Italian company ” Boffi” – partially open to the living room and hides working corners. The dining area off the kitchen, internal and external – is used for eating and managing the family every day’s life. The Husband’s dream was to have “outside working kitchen” in the garden, that connected to the back pantry and kitchen. Spacious living room and accommodates many guests, furnished with comfortable and elegant Italian furniture.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe combined family room next to the living room with a special library – quickly became the center of the house. Intimate and cozy. The home central staircase hiding the big dining area, which hosts the family with direct link to the beautiful back garden. Minimalist glass doors, invisible, and hidden inside the walls width. 2012 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/429173/ch-house-domb-architecture Clipboard Save this picture!© Amit GeronMuch of the social life in Israel takes place outdoors, so there are large surfaces for gathering and eating in the back garden. On the second floor- spacious parents suite, with balcony that overlooking the garden. Entering through the wide closet that brings to a big bedroom and large and luxurious bathroom, with free standing bath and huge shower. The basement is functional – Game space for the grandchildren, Fitness room, intimate office and additional guest suite.Save this picture!© Amit GeronA smart system controls the electricity, communication system, audio video and air condition -and operated by an i-phone. New life to existing structure, without destroying the remnants of the past, trying to preserve as much of the possible. New life for next twenty years, to a gladdened and extended family.Project gallerySee allShow lessHonoring Architecture’s Digital PioneersArticlesCoastal Marine Research Station / Martin Hurtado ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Ch House / Domb Architecture CopyAbout this officeDomb ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTel AvivHousesIsraelPublished on September 20, 2013Cite: “Ch House / Domb Architecture” 20 Sep 2013.

In defense of the Ferguson rebellion

first_imgMonica MooreheadWW photo: Brenda RyanTalk given by Monica Moorehead at the 2014 National Conference of Workers World Party in New York City on Nov. 15.The Ferguson Rebellion, ignited by the racist police lynching of Michael Brown, still strikes fear into the hearts of the 1%, the ruling capitalist class, so much so that they are preparing their storm troopers — the police and National Guard — on every level for a new phase of the rebellion, not only in Ferguson but beyond its borders, as the U.S. and the world await the dreaded outcome of the grand jury decision on whether Michael Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson, will be indicted or not.For our class, despite the tragic death of Michael Brown, this rebellion was a political victory. It has reinforced the right of the most oppressed to rebel and to resist against an entire system by exposing to the world the horrors of police terror that protects the interests of the 1% while defying the rights of millions.The Ferguson Rebellion upped the ante by tearing the covers off the growing militarization of the police with their tear gas, rubber bullets, tanks, drones and other terror weapons, for almost two weeks, starting on Aug. 10, when Black youth defied bogus curfews by staying in the streets.The Ferguson Rebellion must be examined within the overall context of the global capitalist economic crisis, where the most oppressed, the most disenfranchised, the most marginalized are targeted first and foremost with racism, cutbacks and austerity.  Black and Brown youth face a relentless war of racial profiling by the police as an occupying force, the prisons, the courts, extralegal terror exhibited by the likes of George Zimmerman, demonizing by the big business media and more. All of these instruments of repression make up the state apparatus, which exists to subjugate one class by the other.  And this war is rooted within this current capitalist crisis of unemployment, underemployment, low wages, union-busting, gentrification, privatization, attacks on public education and other assaults against the workers and oppressed.  And for African Americans, this crisis is very much rooted in the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow racism.Our party stands in unwavering solidarity with the Ferguson Rebellion, because we stand in solidarity with the workers, including oppressed nationalities from the African Diaspora, from Latin America, the Caribbean, the so-called Middle East, Asia and the Indigenous peoples, who share a common oppression, regardless of boundaries and language, in relationship to the expansion of capitalism into imperialism, which relies on the plunder and superexploitation of whole countries and peoples for its very existence.Being nationally oppressed means being denied basic democratic rights, even under a bourgeois democracy.  So defending the right to self-determination for oppressed nations is critical for any multinational, revolutionary party to adhere to in order to strengthen class unity to move forward the class struggle.And how does this understanding relate to the Ferguson Rebellion?  It means defending the right of the Black youth to rebel against their oppressor by any means necessary.  There is still this erroneous view that it is acceptable for the oppressor to be violent but not the oppressed. But, comrades and friends, this is a bourgeois concept.How many times did we hear CNN, ABC, CBS and others echo how terrible it is for the “criminal” youth to be “looting and rioting” in Ferguson?  Well, isn’t it the capitalist system that loots the entire working class on a global scale every day in terms of wages, pensions and social services?  Isn’t it the police, not the masses, who riot, armed to the teeth, and impose draconian laws that provoke righteous anger?  Why do so many armed police occupy and terrorize oppressed communities if not for this purpose?Sam Marcy, the late chairperson and founder of our party, wrote an important pamphlet after the 1992 Los Angeles Rebellion, following the acquittal of the four white police officers who beat Rodney King.  What he wrote over 24 years ago could easily apply to the Ferguson Rebellion:  “After every stage in the struggle of the workers and oppressed people, there follows an ideological struggle over what methods the masses should embrace to achieve their liberation from imperialist monopoly capital. There are always those who abjure violence while minimizing the initial use of violence by the ruling class. They denounce it in words, while in deeds they really cover it up.“Yes indeed, they readily admit the verdict in the Rodney King beating was erroneous and unfair.  But — and here their voices grow louder — ‘The masses should not have taken to the streets and taken matters into their own hands.’ Their denunciation of the violence of the ruling class is subdued and muffled — above all it is hypocritical, a sheer formality. It’s an indecent way of seeming to take both sides of the argument when what follows is in reality a condemnation of the masses.“In times when the bourgeoisie is up against the wall, when the masses have risen suddenly and unexpectedly, the bourgeoisie gets most lyrical in abjuring violence. It conjures up all sorts of lies and deceits about the unruliness of a few among the masses as against the orderly law-abiding many.“Marxism here again cuts through it all. The Marxist view of violence flows from an altogether different concept. It first of all distinguishes between the violence of the oppressors as against the responsive violence of the masses. Just to be able to formulate it that way is a giant step forward, away from disgusting bourgeois praise for nonviolence. It never occurs to any of them to show that the masses have never made any real leap forward with the theory of nonviolence. Timidity never made it in history.“Indeed, Marxists do prefer nonviolent methods if the objectives the masses seek — freedom from oppression and exploitation — can be obtained that way. But Marxism explains the historical evolution of the class struggle as well as the struggle of oppressed nations as against oppressors.”Comrades and friends, the Ferguson Rebellion is far from over; it is a bellwether of things to come, because as repression deepens, so will many other Ferguson uprisings.  And as a revolutionary party, it is our responsibility to assist our class, especially those in motion, to not feel abandoned or isolated, which are exactly the aims and objectives of the ruling class. Division within our class helps to keep the ruling class in power.  Their greatest fear is working-class unity, which will lead to the demise of their system.So what can we do to assist this rebellion led by Black youth?  What strategies can we use to motivate the unions to organize these youth, just as migrant workers demanded to be organized, especially during the great May Day strike in 2006?When a number of us were recently in Ferguson, youth told us that they want jobs, they want to be organized, but the unions are not hearing or listening to them.  This is why the slogan “Black lives matter!” is revolutionary, considering their lowly status within society.Why can’t the unions take the millions of dollars they waste on getting some Democrat elected and instead launch a nationwide organizing drive for Black, Brown and Indigenous youth?  Think of how this act of solidarity would empower their lives and politically strengthen the unions, especially the uprising of low-wage workers?So many of these youth in Ferguson and St. Louis are class-conscious.  They know that the capitalist system is to blame for their dismal existence; they know that police occupation is a symptom of the system and therefore, they have nothing to lose by resisting the police.To make the Ferguson Rebellion a major focus for Martin Luther King Day in January and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the great Malcolm X on Feb. 21 would be so timely.  It is so important to use anniversaries like these, especially when the bourgeois forces will attempt to rewrite history, to show that they are relevant to today’s struggle; that the legacy of Malcolm X is tied to the right to resist and the right to self-defense, which is a centerpiece of the Ferguson Rebellion.  So I hope that this perspective can be discussed more in the breakout group on the Ferguson Rebellion.Long live the Ferguson Rebellion!  Say no to racism and capitalism!  Fight for socialism!  Black lives matter!!!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
