In the heart of the Chapelle International neighborhood in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, currently undergoing major renewal, the firms of Brenac & Gonzalez & Associés and MOA Architecture are delivering two towers with a total of 254 apartments attached to 20 SOHO-type business spaces with apartments (Small Office/Home Office).Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaThe E plot, composed of a platform dedicated to SOHO (Small Offices/Home Offices) and the two E1 and E2 towers, is inserted into a very sophisticated grid, evoking a lower and an upper town. The specifically SOHO type of apartments offers a new vision blending workplace and home. The SOHO section base is divided along its length by a broad interior street designed as a lively, common area. This interior street extends all the way to the entrance lobby of the E2 in order to strengthen the link between the E1 and E2 towers. 20 business spaces located on the ground floor are directly accessible from the public area and benefit from a generous height of 3.80 meters. The apartments linked to these office spaces are found on the next floor of the base.Save this picture!Site planE1 Tower. The E1 tower, designed by Brenac & Gonzalez & Associés, is designed with a gap so one can perceive not one tower but rather two smaller, sleek and slender towers. These two towers are joined together by a planted interstice and by an outdoor staircase, which brings light directly into the common areas and, oriented in the direction of Sacré-Cœur, offers meeting places for the occupants.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaSave this picture!Floor plan level 8 (Tower E1)Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaAn intermediate register comprised of balconies ensures the transition between the SOHO section and the World above. This section runs around the tower’s entire circumference from level G+2 to G+6 to compose the lower skyline, designed to correspond to the current height of Paris buildings. The upper skyline extends from level G+6 to G+16 and is comprised of a prefabricated white concrete exoskeleton, highlighting broad horizontal lines and offering generous spaces supporting differentiated exterior spaces, thereby providing the project with a genuine interiority, which opens to spectacular views of the broader Paris cityscape.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaE2 Tower.  The E2 tower, designed by MOA Architecture is comprised of two interlocking towers forming a single block. The “urban tower,” aligned with the street and facing buildings opposite, possesses a “perforated wall” of windows based on a traditional model. The warmth of the carpentry with its wooden shutters balance the austerity of a plain concrete façade.Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaSave this picture!Floor plan level 13 (Tower E2)Save this picture!© Stefan TuchilaThe “landscape tower,” oriented southeastward in the direction of Sacré-Coeur, has a very delicate structure, on a 40-cm-wide column and beam grid, opening the interior spaces toward the urban landscape of Paris. Floor-to-ceiling glazed wooden doors offer total transparency through the guardrails, which are designed to be virtually invisible from the terraces.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe tower’s envelopes were designed as “exostructures.” These so-called “tube-towers”, lessen the building’s weight by approximately 1/3 as compared with “Miesian” towers and their concrete core. This lightening of the weight offers maximum flexibility because, over time, not only can the useful spaces be reconfigured but also all the core spaces of distribution, which are defined by non-loadbearing walls. In addition, the savings in terms of concrete are an environmental and financial plus that cannot be ignored.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Autumn World Campus Masters Selective Graduation Design Program 2020OpportunitiesThese Are the Tallest Buildings in the World Right NowArticlesProject locationAddress:18th arrondissement of Paris, 75018 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Born & Bread: Marriage’s Millers

first_imgMarriage’s Millers was born almost 200 years ago on a family farm and is now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of a wide range of baking flours.,Marriage’s Millers was created in 1824 by twin brothers William and Henry Marriage, who were just 17 years old when they inherited their father’s mill.The family had several mills, the main one being Broomfield Mill, in which a steam engine was installed to drive the millstones in 1836.“We’ve always had high standards for wheat. We’re in a good wheat-growing area, and we have lots of farmers who we’ve dealt with directly for generations,” says company director Hannah Marriage, part of the sixth generation of the family to work in business.William Marriage’s sons Sampson and Phillip, and Henry Marriage’s son Henry, joined the business in 1865 and, in 1899, it moved its HQ to Chelmer Mills in Chelmsford, where it remains today.The site had its own railway siding that allowed coal and grain to be delivered, and flour to be sent to London. The site has seen a number of updates, with electric power installed in 1952 to replace a steam engine, a new feed mill in 1970, and Chelmer Mill remodelled in 1998. It has a bakery on-site so it can work with customers if they want to develop new products or troubleshoot.Henry Marriage’s sons Henry and Llewellyn, and Sampson’s son Sampson Percival were the third generation to join the business, while the fourth consisted of brothers Sampson David and Steven, as well as their cousin Henry.Sampson David championed organic flour, which Marriage’s started supplying in 1986, followed by a range of artisan flours in 2012, and the expansion of its home baking flour capacity in 2013.The fifth generation of the business comprised George Marriage, who has been president of the National Association of British & Irish Millers (Nabim) for the past two years, his brother Peter and their cousin Simon.George’s daughter Hannah became the first woman in the family to join the business when she took on the role of marketing executive, becoming a company director in 2013. The sixth generation is made up of Hannah and her cousins James and Sam.Recent developments have included a Golden Wholegrain range, made from a wheat variety naturally high in fibre, and an artisan range with spelt, rye and barley flours.“We want to build on our history, retain our good reputation, quality products and personal customer service,” concludes Hannah. “We want to continue responding as the market changes in the future.”Timeline1824: Business founded by William and Henry Marriage at Broomfield Mill1891: Modern roller plant is installed at Moulsham Mill by William and Henry’s sons1899: The mill moves to newly built site Chelmer Mills1952: Electric power is installed1970: New feed mill built1986: Organic flour introduced1998: Chelmer Mill remodelled2012: An artisan flour range is launched2013: Home baking flour capacity is expandedlast_img read more

Sharing the small stuff

first_imgInteractivity will be the focus of the fifth annual Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) conference as faculty, instructors, and academic professionals from all parts of the University gather to discuss best practices, as well as theory and experience, in both learning and teaching.“When you are in a conversation, when you have to respond, then you are thinking,” said Peter Bol, vice provost for advances in learning at Harvard, who will offer introductory remarks at the conference’s final session. “Interactivity is about being engaged in learning and responding at the same time.”The topic for the conference, which runs from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Friday at Wasserstein Hall, was developed in the spring as HILT reached out to faculty over a series of lunch and dinner meetings for input about their educational challenges and trajectories.“We were stunned by the number of responses,” said Erin Driver-Linn, director of HILT and associate provost of institutional research, noting that more than 500 answered the initial query, and more than 120 attended one of the small-group discussions. The theme of interactivity came out of those conversations, she said. What also emerged were very practicable ideas.“What are the nudges, something simple I can do in my classes?” recalled Driver-Linn. “What are some bite-sized innovations?”The conference, which typically draws 300-500 Harvard community members, promotes a University-level dialogue across campuses, allowing participants to share experiences and experimental approaches and strengthen networks. It will kick off with a panel discussion, to be followed by breakout sessions. The concluding panel will focus on increasing opportunities to improve teaching and learning at Harvard.Physics Professor Matt Schwartz will lead one of the breakout sessions, in which faculty members share their own small-scale teaching innovations. He’s most concerned with quick, easily applicable fixes. “Stuff that doesn’t take rewriting your whole course,” he said. The examples he cited are indeed small, but they can have major repercussions.“Someone suggested they always have music playing when people enter their classroom,” he said. “Then they turn it off, and it automatically gets people’s attention.”From his own experience, Schwartz has learned to “ask students before class what they want me to talk about.” This encourages them to think about the course work and do the reading before each class, he said.Another goal of Schwartz’s session will be to explore how best to communicate such small-scale ideas, so that faculty can share them. “What I find most useful is people telling me what they have gotten from their own practice, their own trial and error in the classroom,” he said.Carolyn Wood, director of the Strengthening Learning and Teaching Excellence and the Case Program at Harvard Kennedy School, will lead a session on teaching with case studies. “We kind of have a moment now,” said Wood. “Faculty are very engaged in finding new ways to reach their learners, and case studies are great way to teach.”Although case studies are common in some fields, such as at Harvard Business School, Wood will ask her participants to explore how other disciplines can make use of it — even on a small scale.“We’ve found we need to make it easy to get started,” she said. “Once faculty try it, they find that students are more engaged, that students do remember not only the learning sessions but also the learning goals. And for faculty it’s challenging and fun.”While Wood is focusing on case studies, her overall perspective captures the initiative of the conference. While she expects some experimentation and “a little trial and error,” the goal remains the same.“Teaching well requires continuous improvement,” she said.last_img read more

‘Psyche of Champions’…William Hill announces shortlist for Sports Book of the Year 2017 award

first_img StumbleUpon Gamesys tops list for GambleAware Q1 donations July 10, 2020 Submit SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Share Share William Hill accelerates transformation agenda to overcome COVID realities August 5, 2020 Related Articles William Hill has announced the seven books which have made its  ‘Sports Book of the Year’ 2017 award shortlist, the most prestigious prize in English sports literature.The bookmaker’s diverse ‘final seven’ encompasses swimming, football, cycling, boxing and horse racing and are united by the rich and complex history running through their titles and storylines.The SBOTY 2017 shortlist features three football accounts, with David Bolchover’s ‘The Greatest Comeback: From Genocide to Football Glory’ portraying the remarkable story of Holocaust Survivor Béla Guttmann who would revolutionise football, becoming the game’s first ‘superstar coach’.Coaching grandeur is further acknowledged by Ian Herbert’s ‘Quiet Genius: Bob Paisley, British Football’s Greatest Manager’ which depicts how Paisley converted Liverpool FC into a European football powerhouse.SBOTY 2017 will feature its first ever crowd-funded book in ‘Breaking Ground: Art, Archaeology and Mythology’. Composed by the literary trio Neville Gabie, Alan Ward and Jason Wood, ‘Breaking Ground’ is a collection of essays which seeks to uncover the mystery the ‘lost’ place of Bradford Park Avenue football club.Two female authors make William Hill’s final seven, with Swimming historian Jenny Landreth’s ‘Swell: A Waterbiography’, which pays homage to the 1900’s ‘Swimming Suffragettes’ who fought for women to have equal rights through access to sport.Ami Rao’s heartfelt biography of Irish jockey Declan Murphy ‘Centaur’, recounts the journey of the jockey’s miracle recovery from riding injuries so bad that he was presumed dead.The character and psyche of champions is a core theme throughout SBOTY 2017 shortlist. ‘Ali: A Life’ by Jonathan Eig uncovers the personal traits, peculiarities and flaws of heavyweight boxing behemoth Muhammad Ali through 500 interviews conducted with close associates of the legendary boxer. Completing the SBOTY shortlist is Andy McGrath’s ‘Tom Simpson: Bird on the Wire’ which depicts the raw and tragic story of cyclist Tom Simpsons during the 1960s in which he became the first Briton to win the elite men’s World Championships and to wear the Tour de France’s Yellow Jersey.Graham SharpeCommenting of the final seven, William Hill Chairman of Judges and co-founder of the Award, Graham Sharpe, said: “Creating a shortlist from a Bookie Prize longlist has never been less than a mind-scrambling task. However, such is the nature of prizes that where there is delight there must elsewhere be a disappointment, and the expert panel was enthralled by the final shortlist.“Never have we created a list including a dead-man walking, let alone riding; never had we even heard of a ‘waterbiography’, let alone a tide-turning tale of swimming emancipation. Football archaeology ever featuring as the theme would have been at least a 50/1 shot. Then there’s the previously unknown, almost miraculous tale of Holocaust survival up against the now legendary story of a British cycling superstar who died during a race, and whose reputation is enhanced every time a Chris Boardman, Chris Hoy, or Chris Froome triumph comes along. And then there is perhaps the ultimate contrast, between one of British football’s quietest and most modest over-achievers who virtually hid his light under a bushel, and world sport’s loudest and greatest practitioner, whose finest, quietest moment was when he fought his body’s unfamiliar frailty to light the Olympic flame.”The William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award is the world’s longest established and most valuable literary sports-writing prize. As well as a £29,000 cheque, this year’s winning author will receive a free £2,500 William Hill bet.The winner of the William Hill SBOTY 2017 will be announced at an afternoon reception at BAFTA, in central London, on Tuesday 28th November.last_img read more
