Upon retirement after 40 years of teaching Fibre-Arts and Interior Design at Texas State University (formerly Southwest Texas State University), the Lamans desired a gallery and studio to compliment their modest 1970’s era modern home, taken from Heritage Homes plan books originally started by Henry D. Norris AIA. Clad in white stucco, the 1800 sq. ft. residence is characterized by a tripartite plan arrangement of two shed roof’s flanking a central core.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerThe Lamans expertly sited the house amongst a dense canopy of live oak and cedar elm trees on a 1 acre, hill country lot in San Marcos, Texas. Over the past 30 years, they have carved out a series of outdoor rooms, a secret garden and sculpture courts around their home leaving only one logical area for an addition – the front yard. While in most situations an addition would supplement the operation of an existing structure, this situation presented an opportunity for the addition to supplant the home – completely transforming it’s identity and creating a new entry.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerThe program called for an exhibition gallery, a painting studio, a library and a new master suite. Taking queues from the parti of the existing home’s massing, the addition is comprised of paired towers (gallery and studio) flanking a foyer and upper level library. The addition is located in a bowl-like depression at the head of a dry creek bed and so must be accessed via a series of bridges which allowing natural water runoff to flow around and between the existing and new structures.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe atmosphere in the towers is animated through two distinct lighting strategies. Ambient light is filtered by the North facing translucent walls while carefully placed skylights project pools of light through a series of ceiling baffles throughout the day. Depending upon the location of the sun, the color temperature of the natural light provides a diverse reading to the Lamans’ art.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerThe library is defined by shelves which cantilever into the voluminous modified-gambrel roof forms of the towers – linking the spaces through section. Perched atop the entry, views to the surrounding canopy of trees create an intimate gathering space for conversation and contemplation for the Lamans and their guests.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerThe Lamans’ appreciation for outdoor living is realized with the addition of a new sculpture garden and bocce court off of the gallery, ideal for large showings or family gatherings. While in a more intimate setting, the master bedroom and bathroom open directly into a private Zen garden.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerThe master suite was reconfigured through a sensitive addition of a bathing and dressing room while shifting the existing bedroom out, forming a linear gallery hall which bisects the existing house and new addition. Movement along this corridor not only makes the user aware of old and new but has framed views to the new outdoor rooms as well.Save this picture!© Dror BaldingerProject gallerySee allShow lessKean University to Acquire Michael Graves Residence After Rejection by PrincetonArchitecture NewsRising from the Ashes: Krakow University Student Creates Vision for the Volcanic Isl…Articles Share Houses 2015 Year:  Laman Residence / A Gruppo ArchitectsSave this projectSaveLaman Residence / A Gruppo Architects Photographs United States “COPY” Laman Residence / A Gruppo Architects CopyAbout this officeTHAD – Architectural Design & Research Institute of Tsinghua UniversityOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan MarcosUnited StatesPublished on June 30, 2016Cite: “Laman Residence / A Gruppo Architects” 30 Jun 2016.

Tibetan poet’s blogs closed down

They were shut down by the websites that hosted them – Tibetcul.net, a Tibetan cultural portal, and Daqi.com, a local blog platform – presumably on government orders amid a continuing wave of online censorship in China.“We are appalled by the closure of Woeser’s blogs and we call for them to be reopened,” the press freedom organisation said. “As her poetry is banned in China, these blogs were the only way she had left to express herself. Their disappearance shows how the Chinese authorities go out of their way to limit Tibetan culture to folklore for tourists.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Political control of the Chinese Internet is becoming more and more strict. The Chinese search engines recently updated their word filters while chat forums have been closed on government orders. We again appeal to the Chinese authorities to respect freedom of expression, a right guaranteed under their constitution.”Woeser used her two blogs – http://oser.tibetcul.net/ and http://blog.daqi.com/weise/ – to post her poems and essays about Tibetan culture, as well as articles written by her husband, Wang Lixiong, an independent Chinese writer. Most of the visitors to the blogs were Tibetan students who, like Woeser, had received their education in Chinese and who wanted to renew contact with their original Tibetan culture.Woeser is one of the few Tibetan authors and poets to write in Chinese. She is committed to the defence of Tibetan culture and her book “Notes on Tibet” was banned in 2004 because of its favourable references to the Dalai Lama. She was fired from her job, evicted from her home and lost her social welfare entitlement. She was also forced to write articles recognising her “political errors.” But she has continued to work and several of her books have been published in Taiwan in recent years.The disappearance of her two blogs comes a few days after the closure of the forum of her husband’s website Dijin-democracy.net, and that of a site that was very influential among Chinese intellectuals, Century China.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org to go further China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prisonlast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders urges thorough investigation into brutal beating of film-maker David Benchetrit

first_img IsraelMiddle East – North Africa to go further Organisation “We would like to see the police investigation pursued with the utmost vigour so that the perpetrators of this shocking violence are arrested and punished in keeping with the seriousness of the attack,” the international press freedom organisation said in its letter to minister Tzachi Hanegbi.Reporters Without Borders particularly insisted on the need for “full co-operation between the Defence ministry, in front of which the assault took place, and the Public Security Ministry which is in charge of the police investigation”.The organisation also asked to be kept informed of the progress of the investigation, the results of which should be made public in about two weeks.The hard-hitting documentary film-maker was attacked as he prepared to go into the defence ministry for an appointment with ministry spokesperson Ruth Yaron in connection with a film he was making about Israel’s conscientious objectors.Stopped by a security guard and told to identity himself, Benchetrit was beaten because he failed to comply quickly enough, but also, according to him, because the guard apparently “took him for an Arab”.Three other guards then handcuffed him and rained blows on him with the butts of their guns, as he tried to tell them he was a journalist and had an appointment.Benchetrit still has great difficulty walking as a result of multiple fractures of the right leg and is suffering psychological effects from the blows to his head, including memory lapses and problems with concentration.”Shocked” by the assault, Reporters Without Borders had on 26 April written to Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz, calling for a “swift and full investigation”. In a reply on 5 May, the minister said he was sorry about the incident but asserted that “the security forces acted in a professional manner”. He did not refer to the opening of an investigation. News RSF_en IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders on 28 July 2004 wrote to Israeli Public Security Minister calling for a “thorough and open” investigation into a brutal assault on Israeli film-maker David Benchetrit.

Press freedom still curbed amid growing lawlessness

The Akwa Ibom state house of assembly has ordered the expulsion of Haruna Acheneje, correspondent of The Punch newspaper in the southern state. Lawson Heyford, of The Source magazine, was arrested by police in the southern city of Port Harcourt and arbitrarily held by police for several days. And a Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) crew was attacked by police in Abuja while filming a clash between police and military officers. “We are appalled at this unacceptable expulsion order against a journalist whose only sin was writing an article,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “We demand its immediate cancellation and call on the federal government to strongly condemn it.”The press freedom organisation urged the authorities to ensure greater security for journalists working around the country and not to allow abuses and irregularities to go unpunished. “Investigations into physical attacks and arbitrary arrests must be thorough and those responsible for them must be identified and punished,” it said.Acheneje had reported in The Punch on 11 August that house of assembly members were complaining about the federal government because their allowances had not been paid. The members said this article was false and a bid to stir up trouble and summoned the journalist to explain. But Acheneje didn’t come and wrote them to contact the head office in Lagos. The assembly then ordered him on 15 August to leave the state within a week. On 22 August, when he failed to do so, it voted a resolution to expel him. On the same day, three armed men thoroughly searched his office while he was absent. The next day, he received two suspect packages at his home which he handed to police for fear they were dangerous. Dele Giwa, editor of the magazine Newswatch, was killed in 1986 when he opened a parcel bomb at his home.Heyford was arrested without explanation on 22 August and held at the office of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) in Lagos. He was freed four days later after interrogation about an article he wrote on tribal clashes that killed several people in the southern village of Ataba and in which he named several people as being responsible.Mohammed Labbo (reporter) and Abdullahi Abdullahi (cameraman), of the NTA, were attacked by police on 14 August as they were covering clashes between police and military officers. Abdullahi was hit on the head with rifle butts and his camera was damaged. The police affairs ministry has opened an enquiry into the incident, but without any results yet.
