The pronounced difference of levels and the topographic integration are the starting points of the house, embedded into the terrain; the concrete roof is the only facade to the street. To access the house, it is necessary to get into the ground: the retaining walls merge with the color of the clay and penetrate the interior. Above the inhabitants, the slab, weightless and supported by the delicate glass envelope, levitates. Ahead, a kaleidoscope of reflections where the green of the landscape can be seen.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe space is compressed between the horizontal planes of the roof and the ground. Inside, the architecture creates an infinite space in a finite space: with a sequence of patios and reflections, the dwelling introduces the exterior in the interior in a literal way, confusing the user, who no longer knows whether he/she is inside or outside.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaNothing defines a room from another one in an accurate way, there are no doors or walls as they are usually understood, only five dark boxes apparently randomly arranged.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe sophistication of the slab contrasts with the roughness of the walls. The fluidity of the spaces, with the impenetrability of the boxes. The house explores more relaxed forms of dwelling in relation to nature without renouncing the comfort that technology offers.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Uji / AKI WATANABE ArchitectsSelected ProjectsArtur Lamas Apartment / Verum AtelierSelected Projects Share Houses Projects Spain Area:  3229 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Adrià Goula+ 15Curated by Clara Ott Share Sesom Villa / Jaime Prous ArchitectsSave this projectSaveSesom Villa / Jaime Prous Architects Photographs:  Adrià Goula Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” “COPY”center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942965/sesom-villa-jaime-prous-architects Clipboard ArchDaily 2019 Sesom Villa / Jaime Prous Architects CopyHouses•Spain Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942965/sesom-villa-jaime-prous-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeJaime Prous ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSpainPublished on July 07, 2020Cite: “Sesom Villa / Jaime Prous Architects” [Villa Sesom / Jaime Prous Architects] 07 Jul 2020.

The Court allowed the petitioners to approach an appropriate forum sans liberty to move the Top Court again.A bench of Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai & Krishna Murari took up the matter for hearing. Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan appeared for the petitioners and pointed out that he would like to withdraw the plea. “At present many cases are before your lordships, so I don’t want this matter to get entangled with the others, or vice versa. This is not the appropriate stage to take this up. I seek liberty to file it at a later stage” said DhavanAt this juncture, Justice Arun Mishra stated that they are “allowing withdrawal, but not permitting the matter to be filed before us again”.Dhavan sought the indulgence of the Court to file the instant plea before High Court.Dhavan: “It’s an important issue, hence the question must be kept open and decided at the appropriate time”.Dhavan also said, “maybe I will come back with this in 2 months”The petition filed by N Ram (former Editor and Managing Director of ‘The Hindu), Advocate Prashant Bhushan and Arun Shourie (former Union Minister) challenged the provision as vague, arbitrary, subjective and leading to violation of fundamental right to free speech.The petition was initially listed before a bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and K M Joseph on August 10. However, the case was removed from that bench. The SC registry stated that the case should have been listed before the bench led by Justice Arun Mishra as it was already considering the contempt cases against Bhushan.The petitioners argued that the provision :- fails the test of over-breadth;- abridges the right to free speech and expression in the absence of “real and tangible” harm;- creates a “chilling effect” on the free speech and expression.”The impugned sub-section is unconstitutional as it is incompatible with preambular values and basic feature of the Constitution. It violates Article 19(1)(a), is unconstitutional and incurably vague, and is manifestly arbitrary”, reads the petition filed through Advocate Kamini Jaiswal.The petitioners state that the offence is “rooted in Colonial assumptions”, which have no place in a democracy.The provision is highly subjective, inviting greatly different readings and application. Thus, the vagueness of the offence violates Article 14 which demands equal treatment and non-arbitrariness.”For instance, in P N Dua vs P. Shiv Shankar , the respondent was not held guilty of scandalising the court despite referring to Supreme Court judges at a public function as “antisocial elements i.e. FERA violators, bride burners and a whole horde of reactionaries” on account of the fact that he was Law Minister. However, in D.C. Saxena vs Chief Justice of India, the respondent was held guilty of criminal contempt for alleging that a Chief Justice was corrupt and that an F.l.R. under the l.P.C. should be registered against him”, the plea states.The provision is also challenged as violative of Article 14 on the ground of “manifest arbitrariness”, on the basis of principles laid down by Supreme Court in Shayara Bano (Triple Talaq case) and Navtej Johar (decriminalisation of homosexuality).In 2013, the United Kingdom, had abolished the offence of scandalising the judiciary as form of contempt of court based on UK Law Commission’s recommendation that the law was vague and not compatible with freedom of speech.Notably, the instant plea was filed following the contempt proceedings taken against Bhushan over two of his tweets about the Chief Justice of India and the Supreme Court.On August 5, the Top Court reserved orders on the contempt case.Next Storylast_img read more

Powerball jackpot inches closer to half a billion with no winner in $414 million drawing

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The Powerball jackpot will inch closer to half a billion dollars after no one won the $414 million drawing on Saturday.The drawing on Wednesday will be worth $448 million.The numbers for Saturday’s drawing were 5-6-45-55-59 with a Powerball of 14. While there was no first place winner, someone in Puerto Rico took home a $2 million prize and winners in Nebraska and Texas won $1 million.The $448 million drawing is the largest Powerball jackpot of 2019 so far, and the 11th-largest Powerball jackpot on record.The odds of winning? One in 292.2 million. Whoever the winner is, the lucky ticket-holder will have 180 days to claim the jackpot.But, sometimes it takes months for someone to come forward and claim the prize. That’s what happened earlier this week when the sole winner of the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot from October 2018 claimed the prize. The person, from South Carolina, chose to remain anonymous and took the cash option of a one-time payment of $877,784,124. The winner took so long to come forward, residents in the industrial town where the ticket was sold assumed he or she was dead.The payout was the largest to a single winner in United States history, officials said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Propertymark to restructure as NAEA chief announces retirement

first_imgLong-serving Chief Executive of NAEA Property Mark Hayward is to retire at the end of this year.But his departure is to spark a major reorganisation of Propertymark with a single structure lead by a sole Chief Executive, who is now being recruited to start next year.We asked if this would see the NAEA and ARLA names disappear under the new single structure, and a Propertymark spokesperson said: “When Propertymark was established it was always intended that we would become the single voice to represent the interests of the property industry continuing to recognise the particular business requirements of sales, lettings, auctions and commercial transfers.“The new Chief Executive Officer will ensure a consistent approach for all Propertymark members.”Hayward, 67, has led the organisation for seven years and prior to that was a board member and chair of its board for four years.Prior to that he worked at several property firms and consultancies in sales, lettings, property management and new homes including at a senior level.RebrandHayward is credited with reorganising and renaming the umbrella organisation under which NAEA, ARLA and NAVA organisations it as Propertymark in February 2017.But much of Hayward’s activities most likely go unnoticed by members during behind-the-scenes briefings with ministers and civil servants helping shape policy including, most recently, advocating for business rate relief for estate agents and the inclusion of commission within furlough calculations to support members impacted by Covid-19.He was a long-time advocate for property industry regulation and was an integral part of the Regulation of Property Agents Working Group, which was formed by MHCLG and chaired by Lord Best, to advise Government on how to make regulation of property agents a reality.“The Propertymark Board would like to thank Mark for his significant contribution over many years to NAEA and the development of Propertymark as a brand,” says Christopher Hamer, (left) Executive Chair of Propertymark.Hayward says: “I’ve loved leading an organisation that spans so many important issues; housing really is at the heart of everything and it’s been a real pleasure to represent the industry.“I am ready for new challenges. I want to thank colleagues and members for all their support over the years and look forward to seeing Propertymark as it evolves in a new era of regulation.”  Mark Hayward ‘Ponzi’ property scheme propertymark ARLA Christopher Hamer July 3, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
