Responding to a dense urban context, the building is designed to evolve and adapt to changing demands over time. The modular structural system can be constructed efficiently and allows programmatic versatility as units can be added or removed when necessary. Thus, the units easily transform between office space and residential quarters. Upper level terraces allow for gardens and greenery in the midst of downtown Rotterdam. Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe units are stacked to recede horizontally as the building rises vertically, providing generous open space at the street level. Modules shade interstitial area in order to engage passersby and facilitate interaction between building and city.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe project is required to be the most sustainable building in the Netherlands. Two large atriums connected to a climate system work towards achieving this goal. Functioning as the building’s lungs, the atrium climate system stores warm air in summer and cold air in winter, releasing the energy as desired. Hi-tech translucent insulation in the glass facade allows for energy efficiency. Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe building aims to mediate between existing structures through its ambiguous form. The street between town hall and the post office aligns with Stadskantoor’s axis of symmetry and extends between the two buildings into a passageway to the Haagseveer. Stadskantoor reflects the scale of the neighboring Stadtimmerhuis by paralleling the same floor heights, and maintaining a plinth height of 20 meters to accommodate the aesthetic of the surrounding Laurenskwartier.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeRem Koolhaas adds, “Our structural system – a three dimensional Vierendeel structure in steel – enables us to improvise and to liberate the ground almost in its entirety, to interpret the ‘Stadswinkel’ as an unencumbered public space, in which we arrange the interaction between citizen and city in a dignified, spacious urban landscape, with an almost ‘Roman’ scale and materiality.”Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessAIA Report Finds Increasing Acceptance of Carbon Reduction TargetsArchitecture NewsRIBA Launches Centenery Square Regeneration Competition for BirminghamArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Meent 119, 3011 JH Rotterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

We propose a ‘formless’ heap, consisting of smaller elements that are shaped to perform a number of major and minor responsibilities. Where necessary, the shape can be formal and impressive, almost symmetrical – for instance, from the Coolsingel, glimpsed between the two survivors – and where desired, it can be delicate and accommodating – for instance in its relationship with the existing monument, Stadstimmerhuis.”Save this picture!© Ossip van Duivenbode ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/561465/in-progress-stadskantoor-oma Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOMAOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsIn ProgressMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsOfficesOffice buildingsRotterdamRem KoolhaasArchitecture NewsOfficesHousingResidentialMixed UseOffice BuildingsRotterdamThe NetherlandsPublished on October 26, 2014Cite: Sadia Quddus. “In Progress: Stadskantoor / OMA” 26 Oct 2014.

Linkedin Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ printThe TCU showgirls squad features 28 members who perform on the sidelines at sporting events, but senior captain Destiny Boos said it is more than just members on a team dancing together.It is young women who are making the best of their experiences by remembering why they love and value the opportunity to be a showgirl, she said.Boos, one of three captains on the squad and the team’s only senior member, said she has learned a lot from her experiences as a showgirl.Life of a showgirlBoos started dancing when she was just two years old. It is that love of performing and dancing that has gotten her to where she is today, she said.Boos said performing on game day is one of her favorite parts of being a showgirl. The fan atmosphere and being actively involved in game day is incredible, she said.For the showgirls, game day starts four hours before kick-off. They get to the field, stretch and make sure everything is ready before running through pregame with the band. Then, they change and go through their halftime performance. After they watch the band practice, they practice their third quarter routine with music, Boos said.Being on the field is a good time to make sure all the little things are in place, like practicing with the yard lines, figuring out spacing on the field and running through routines with the loudspeaker system to make sure it all works, she said. It’s the mechanical aspects to make sure everything is ready that are the most important on gameday, Boos said.During the game, the team performs both a halftime and third quarter routine, but also stands on the steps by the student section to cheer on the Horned Frogs.“Then, the game is over and we do it all again next week.” Boos said.Game days are a lot of performing and intense work, but it’s worth it, she said.“It’s the feeling of doing the alma mater and seeing all the fans looking down on everyone on the field,” Boos said. “You feel very honored to be at TCU and to be a showgirl.”Life outside of showgirlsOther than being on showgirls, Boos also has a required internship for her social work major. She works 16 hours through the internship, takes 12 hours of classes, and leads practices as one of the captains for showgirls.She said being on showgirls has taught her how to be aware of time commitments, how to organize and how to be a communicator. She takes her days one at a time, then her weeks one at a time.More than just time commitments, being a leader on a team has taught her the importance of making sure each team member feels valued and that they are important, she said.“We love having them on the team,” Boos said.Being the only senior on the team and one of three captains, Boos takes on the role of guiding the team.Boos said even with a diverse mix of personalities and a big group of girls, they get along well. She said no one else at TCU has the experience of dancing together like they do, so it’s something they all hold close to them.She shares advice with them on how to make sure they aren’t getting too wrapped up in the perks and the beauty aspects of the program. It’s easy to compare yourself to others and beat yourself down, she said.“I try to encourage them to hold onto why they do it specifically and individually.” Boos said.She tells them that their experiences are not dependent on how the year is. She reminds them to make the best of their own experiences and cherish the friendships and memories that come, she said.Boos will ask them: “When you perform, what do you want TCU to see from you?”She said by putting it in that perspective, the showgirls discover so much about themselves.“I can look back and say, ‘Wow I’ve grown so much from this program,’” Boos said. “I took away so much from it: dancing for a school that I love so much.” ReddIt Twitter TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ Linkedin Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ + posts Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ Kacey is a junior journalism major from Friendswood, Texas.

Chicago Animal Care and Control(CHICAGO) — An alligator was captured in Humboldt Park Lagoon in Chicago early Tuesday morning, one week after the reptile was first spotted there.The gator, nicknamed “Chance the Snapper,” was hiding in the lily pads when he was caught safely and unharmed at about 1:30 a.m., officials said.Expert Frank Robb, who traveled to- Chicago from Florida to help capture the animal, said he reeled Chance in from the shore and then “grabbed ahold of him.”Robb presented Chance to captivated reporters at the Humboldt Park Boathouse Tuesday morning, ending the unusual, week-long hunt.The gator is about 5 feet long and weighs about 30 to 40 pounds, Robb said. He appears healthy, officials said.Chance was believed to have been a pet that someone dropped off at the lagoon, Jenny Schlueter, a spokeswoman for Chicago Animal Care and Control, told ABC News last week. After days of searching, the area around the lagoon was closed Monday in the hopes that the quiet would help lure the animal out of hiding.The gator will eventually go to a zoo or sanctuary, officials said.

Construction deaths upOn 1 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Figures show the building industry clearly needs to examine its safetyrecordMore workers died on building sites in the past nine months on record thanin the whole of the previous 12 months, leading to serious concerns aboutsafety in the construction trade, the Health and Safety Commission has said. From last March to December 2001, a total of 86 workers were killed onconstruction sites, compared with 85 workers killed between April 1999 andMarch 2000. The 1999/2000 figure also showed a substantial increase on statistics forthe previous year, in which 68 people were killed on construction sites, saidthe commission. But the number of accidents in the sector also increased – although lesssharply, with 5,040 people suffering major injuries in 1999/2000 and 10,292suffering injuries that kept them off work for more than three days. This compared with 5,034 and 9,576 respectively reported the year before. Nevertheless, construction workers were six times more likely to have anaccident at work than the average British worker, said the HSC. The manufacturing sector reported 46 worker deaths in the nine months toDecember 2000, with 39 deaths reported in agriculture and 51 deaths in theservice industries. The sharp rise in the fatalities in the construction sector has led the HSCto challenge the industry to improve its health and safety record. Health and Safety Commission chairman Bill Callaghan called on the industryto commit itself to action, urging those within construction to draw up theirown action plans to meet Government safety targets. “We know what kills people and we know how to prevent accidents, but wecan’t have a health and safety inspector on all of the million or soconstruction sites,” he said.
