It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Share CopyIn 1930, Le Corbusier was tasked with designing a dormitory that would house Swiss students at the Cité Internationale Universitaire in Paris. At first the architect and Pierre Jeanneret, his partner at the time, refused to take on the project due to tensions with the Swiss after their handling of the architects’ proposal for the League of Nations competition. Eventually, however, they agreed to see it through and worked on a very limited budget, which led the building to become a summation of Le Corbusier’s modern principles, forcing him to focus on dwelling before all else.+ 10The Swiss Pavilion, or Pavillon Suisse, employed the architect’s five points of architecture, building on them throughout the design. The building is elevated on pilotis that are close to its center, accentuating the ‘floating’ effect. The roof garden gives back to the city and serves the residents of the building, although it is not as animated as that of the Unite d’Habitation in Marseille. Three frames give the garden a view and reveal the unsophisticated structural elements.Save this picture!© Samuel LudwigRecommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapWhile strained by the limited budget, Le Corbusier manages to hold onto his free facade and open plan. Several moments in the project reveal a transparent skin with the structural support standing behind it, always maintaining the continuity of the elevations. Moreover, the open plan is controlled with architectural elements such as stairs as well as furniture, whether fixed or loose. View and light penetration also have their impact on the organization of the open plan, having been controlled by the free elevation.

In certain cases we also witness the ribbon windows becoming vertical curtain walls, one of the steps of transitioning the five elements from the scale of a villa to that of a vertical housing block, the epitome of which was the Unite d’Habitation, completed two decades later.

Le Corbusier manages to use a budget constraint to develop his most basic principles, never sacrificing the beauty of space. The Pavillon Suisse comes as a development of the Villa Savoye in a sense, bringing the architect’s principles to a larger and more lively structure, one closer to the city and the people.Save this picture!© Samuel LudwigHousing, Apartments•Paris, France AD Classics: Swiss Pavilion / Le CorbusierSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Swiss Pavilion / Le Corbusier “COPY” “COPY”center_img Year:  CopyAbout this officeLe CorbusierOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsParisHousingResidentialFrancePublished on April 11, 2013Cite: Ramzi Naja. “AD Classics: Swiss Pavilion / Le Corbusier” 11 Apr 2013.

Dodgers will give Will Smith ‘a good runway’ as the primary catcher

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. — As far back as spring training, the Dodgers expected Will Smith to arrive in the major leagues this season and start significant games at catcher for them at some point.That time is now.Smith was promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday for the third time this season. He is expected to stay this time and serve as the Dodgers’ primary catcher, likely for the rest of the season and potentially in a postseason run.“Seeing him on a big-league field and seeing the way he conducted his at-bats, handled the pitching staff, following gameplans – even in big spots against good pitching how he handled himself, staying in the strike zone and what he did at the Triple-A level … he’s performed, really. Big time,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “So he’s checked every box. Now you’ve got to go out there and give him a little bit of runway.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Smith’s defensive skills have always been highly-rated. But he has had a breakout year offensively, hitting .269 with a .986 OPS and 20 home runs in 61 games with the OKC Dodgers. In nine games at the major-league level over his first two promotions, he hit .269 with a .999 OPS and three home runs – two walk-offs to win games.Roberts said he expects to give Smith “a good runway” with “the lion’s share” of playing time with veteran Russell Martin “in there a couple times a week is kind of what I see.”The window opened for Smith’s ascension with the continued collapse of Austin Barnes’ offensive game (and some recent defensive miscues as well). Barnes hit .289 with an .895 OPS in 2017, giving the Dodgers hope that he would develop into a two-way player and every-day catcher.Since then, however, Barnes has hit .200 with a .618 OPS in 471 plate appearances. He had just seven hits in his last 60 at-bats before being demoted to Triple-A this week.“Very difficult discussion with Austin,” said Roberts, who gave Barnes the news along with Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. “It’s more about just trying to get him on track offensively. I think just to get him back in a good place mentally and mechanically. He’s a major-league player. He helps us in so many ways – in the clubhouse, behind the plate. But we see him as an offensive player as well. Just to get him out of this hot box (the pressure of the big leagues) will be best for him and it will help us as well. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco After batting .276 with 12 home runs and an .888 OPS last season, White slumped to a .225 batting average, .650 OPS and just three home runs in 71 games with the Astros this year.“Just kind of a grind so far,” White said. “I don’t want to blame it on anything in particular. It’s just been tough for me to gain any momentum this year. I’ve had some good weeks. It’s just been tough to put together a good month.“I’m excited to have some new scenery and join a new team.”ALSOKiké Hernandez had an MRI on his left hand after leaving Wednesday’s game with an injury. The results had not been reviewed by the team’s medical staff before Friday’s game, but Roberts said he expected Hernandez to be available to play defense only.UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 8-2, 2.84 ERA) at Nationals (TBA), Saturday, 1:05 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AMcenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “For any decision we made, you also have to have a solution. To have Will playing the way he’s playing, so consistently on both sides of the baseball, just made a difficult decision a little bit easier.”STRIPLING STARTRight-hander Ross Stripling said he is still bothered by neck stiffness, leaving his next scheduled start (Tuesday in Colorado) questionable.Stripling played catch on flat ground on Friday afternoon and said he still felt the discomfort in the right side of his neck.“If you think about pitching, that whipping action there at the end,” Stripling said. “It’s not so much pain, but I think I’m protecting it.”Roberts said Stripling is expected to make that start in Colorado “right now” but he would have to throw a bullpen session Saturday or Sunday to test the neck and prove his readiness to pitch. Right-hander Jaime Schultz traveled to Washington with the team in case a roster move needs to be made.FREESE OUTTyler White was officially added to the roster Friday after being acquired in a trade with the Houston Astros. David Freese was returned to the Injured List with a persistent hamstring problem in his left leg. Freese spent more than two weeks on the IL before the All-Star break due to the same problem.“It’s just something we can’t get over,” Roberts said. “He’s doing everything he can to stay on the field. We’re just not getting the best version of him as far as his health.”White will replace Freese as a right-handed bat off the bench and occasional first baseman.Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season last_img read more

Lightning strikes twice for Manley at Jackalope Open

first_imgDefending champion Jason Manley (right) receives the Jackalope trophy from tournament organizer Mark Gorda.It was a case of déjà vu at the 19th Jackalope Open charity golf tournament last week as Jason Manley returned to defend the title he won just 12 months ago, but this time with an even more impressive round of 45 points off his 26 handicap.A field of 82 golfers teed it up at a resplendent looking Burapha Golf Course on Friday, August 4, all looking to chase down the elusive Jackalope trophy and enjoy some great camaraderie throughout the day.  For those struggling at the start, help was at hand in the shape of numerous forms of refreshments and altogether some 24 cases of ‘aiming oil’ were consumed around the course.  Fortunately the golf doping control authorities were conspicuous by their absence.Paul Greenaway (right) was the Low Gross winner.Before starting out the players were also presented with their complimentary Jackalope golf shirts and ‘goodie bags’ as well as being proffered kick-starters in the form of Canadian Caesars at the registration desk.Once the golf was completed and the divots had settled, back in the clubhouse the players were treated to a delicious buffet dinner to accompany the awards presentation. Jason Manley was named as a 2-time Jackalope champion following his outstanding round while Paul Greenaway won the low gross title after shooting 77 off the stick.  At the other end of the score-sheet, Neil Sandilands just edged out Bobby Clark for the Rabbits award.Numerous technical prizes accompanied by the lucky draw meant that most of those in attendance did not leave Burapha empty-handed.  Bill Simonick won a Canadian themed golf bag and immediately asked for it to be auctioned off, and with three golfers bidding it sold for 14,000 baht which Bill generously donated back into the charity pot.A feature of the Jackalope golf day is the highly anticipated 50/50 draw, and here providence sent down another thunderbolt as chief tournament organizer Mark Gorda saw his number drawn out of the hat for the second year in a row.  As benevolent as ever, Mark kindly donated the entire 75,000+ baht into the charity coffers.Sandy helps Mark Gorda draw the lucky tickets.Thanks to these individual acts of generosity and vital support from the long list of tournament sponsors, somewhere in excess of 250,000 baht was raised this year to go towards the Jester Care4Kids charity drive.Top Rabbits Neil Sandilands (left) and Bobby Clark share the limelight.Those who gave their valuable time and financial support to the day included: Pattaya Bay Real Estate, The Clubhouse Pratamnak, Bar 1 Ban Chang, Rick Moren, Todd Moren, Mike Peters, Neil Sandilands, Stacey O’Toole, Tinnies the meat pie specialist, The Blue Moose, the great work done by the beer cart boys, Woody, Bill Freeman, Mike and the management and staff at Burapha, John Emmerson, Bill Simonick, Larry Deverdenne, Rob Kennedy, Golfstar Brent, Sticky, Richie Rhodes and the Nirvana resort in Koh Chang, Fraser’s Restaurant, The Haven, Q Cars, Luc and Soda Lafriene, Pattaya Pickle, Richard Murphy, Steve Mascari, T.Q., Jesters, Jack Levy,  Macallen Insurance, and Pattaya Mail Media.The Blue Moose girls provided some great snacks out on the course.Thanks go to all of these as well as to the players and the entire expat community for their vital assistance.  Plans are already well underway for the 20th anniversary of the tournament next year.  See you all there!82 golfers had a great day out at the 19th Jackalope Open.Jackalope ChampionJason Manley 45ptsLow GrossPaul Greenaway Gross 77Men’s Division 11st John McHugh 39pts2nd Jim Smith 39pts3rd Paul Greenaway 39ptsMen’s Division 21st Steven Milne 38pts2nd Craig Mansell 38pts3rd Neal Hunter 35ptsMen’s Division 31st Bernie Morris 36pts2nd Chris Harkins 35pts3rd Bill Trainer 34ptsLadies Division1st Oiy St. Laurent2nd Junko Nevis 32 ptsRabbits Division1st Neil Sandilands 37pts2nd Bobby Clark 36ptsChampions all – players pose with their trophies.last_img read more
