In the Austrian alpine town of Bludenz in Vorarlberg, feld72 have completed the housing development Maierhof. The estate is situated within a community characterized by agriculture, old stables, single-family homes, and multi-story residential buildings. Dividing the volume into several small units is a concept, which has already proven to be successful in feld72’s South Tyrolean residential projects in Kaltern and Eppan and was repeated in Bludenz. The result is an ensemble of eight three-story buildings, with dimensions based on the original listed building – the “Zürcherhaus”. The houses, simply designed as compact cubes, appear identical at first glance. Nevertheless, no building is like the other. Each of the eight structures is differently aligned and sized to enable versatile visual relationships and to strengthen the village-like character. All houses have green roofs and solar thermal collectors.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Hertha HurnausA series of open spaces with different spatial qualities form a significant part of the estate. Most of the area is car-free, the access to the underground car park runs along the northern part of the plot. The main access for pedestrians happens via the square in the southwest corner of the Maierhof at the interface to the neighborhood. For the design of the square, typical local elements like the fountain or the garden wall were taken up and reinterpreted. The square leads to the central green courtyard, around which six of the eight buildings are grouped. This communal space offers room for play, meetings, access and bicycle parking. The courtyard has been designed as a public space for the whole neighborhood and is managed by the city together with the housing cooperative. All open spaces were designed by the landscape architecture studio GRUBER + HAUMER.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausThe eight buildings with a total living area of approximately 4,500 m² offer a diverse range of subsidized properties for rent and sale. The 67 apartments range in size from 37 m² for 1-room to 91 m² for 4-room apartments. All units include a private outdoor space (loggia). The variety of homes is to ensure social diversity within the Maierhof. In addition to the generously designed open spaces, a common room is to further promote social cohesion within the ensemble and beyond. Located on the ground floor at the entrance to the estate, it views the square on one side and the courtyard on the other side. The common room is managed by the city.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Hertha HurnausThe Maierhof is a wood-based hybrid construction with a façade of prefabricated wood elements (box beams). This design not only speeds up the construction process but also increases the quality of execution. Vertical slats of native silver fir – untreated and unpolished – are arranged with different widths, giving the outside a playful character. A circumferential metal band structures the façade upwards and marks the transition between the ground floor and the two upper floors. The freely arranged façade openings, square in shape, as well as the wooden window surrounds,  were designed with the style of the original listed “Zürcherhaus” in mind. Overtime, the wooden façade with its increasing silver-grey patina, will more and more blend in with the surrounding agricultural buildings.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausProject gallerySee allShow lessCould Tall Wood Construction Be the Future of High-Rise Buildings?ArticlesReforma apartamento no Edifício Prudência / messina | rivasSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bludenz, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The bracing house is a multiplex house for earnings from leasing that can be easily seen in any general residential area in Seoul, but it was our intention to make it different looking to the typical multiplex house. A fundamental change is not easy due to the inherent limit of the profitable lease building that has to guarantee the maximum floor area ratio, the bracing house, by installing a pseudo-wall, shows us a definitely different look compared to the typical multiplex house that adapts to the diagonal line limitations of the setback regulation.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunSave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Namgoong SunSave this picture!© Namgoong SunThe bracing house is largely consisted of the two pseudo-walls, top and bottom. The top is planned as one trapezoid roof plane responding to two diagonal line limitations for daylight and street width on average. The outdoor terrace created due to the diagonal line limitations of the setback regulation is a private space surrounded by the framing of the pseudo-walls and this not only secures stronger territoriality but also adds to the depth of the façade through the pseudo-window.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunThe pseudo-wall on the bottom plays the role of a structural brace to alleviate the visual and structural instability of the piloti parking lot, in addition to the design element responding to the roof-line of the top. The thin vertical columns of the piloti parking lot are inevitably vulnerable to the lateral force, but the pseudo-walls as the brace utilized as a façade design element is optimized to reinforce vulnerability.Just like the façade brace of the John Hancock Center located in Chicago, United States, the structure becomes an important element of the façade design.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunAs a façade element, the inclined plane of the bottom brace completes the consistent design of a building together with the inclined plane of the roof on top. Due to the local regulations, the exterior materials were restricted to non-flammable materials such as stone, and the house was finished with Euro Form exposed concrete due to a budgetary problem and to handle the sharp corners. The simple building shape not swayed by setback regulation is even more emphasized by the single use of the exposed concrete.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunProject gallerySee allShow lessWALL.BOX Offices / NAICE architecture & designSelected ProjectsWestory Hair Salon / Yoshihiro Kato AtelierSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Most charities should already have sent their 2001 accounts; those whose financial year-end was 31 December 2001 have until 31 October 2002 to meet the deadline.

The Commission points out that a number of trustees have been prosecuted for persistently failing to submit their documents ontime.The Commission’s Director of Operations Simon Gillespie, said: “Submission of accounts is a vital element in maintaining public confidence – not just for individual charities but for the sector as a whole. So this week, we’re urging charities not to get behind with their paperwork. The Commission takes a robust line on non-compliance. Defaulting charities can expect to find themselves listed on our web site as not having submitted their returns on time.We know that many thousands of people visit the web site every month before deciding which charities they wish to support. They will be able to see which are in default, and that will almost certainly affect their decision.”The Commission has also reminded smaller charities – those with incomes of under £10,000 a year – to make sure that their details are up to date by submitting a Charity Commission ‘Register Check Form’ every year.

UK sees six-fold increase in social impact investment market in eight years

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Largest segments of the market revealedSocial property funds, which did not exist eight years ago, now account for the largest segment of the market: at 42% of the £5.1 billion outstanding social investments at the end of 2019.Secured bank lending is the second largest segment of the market at 34% and, according to Big Society Capital, is the source of finance still most likely to be taken on by a social enterprise or charity. This has grown from £664 million in 2011 to £1.7 billion in 2019.Venture investing has also seen considerable growth, of nearly 50% year on year. This sees investors provide early stage and growth capital for innovative ventures tackling social issues, such as preventing mental ill health, childhood obesity and the ageing population. Tagged with: Finance investment Unsecured non-bank lending & lower value deals also in demandWith not all charities and social enterprises having assets against which a loan can be secured, Big Society Capital has also seen a doubling of the amounts of unsecured non-bank lending since 2011, with over 1,600 investments now outstanding, valued at £327 million, including blended finance.While the social impact investment market has continued to expand, there is still demand for lower value deals, demonstrated by the volume committed through the Growth Fund during 2019 – just under 20% of the total deal flow across the market.The Growth Fund – which is managed by Access – The Foundation for Social Investment with funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and Big Society Capital – was set up to enable charities and social enterprises to access repayable finance of up to £150,000.Seb Elsworth, Chief Executive, Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, said:“The Growth Fund continues to be a cornerstone of social investment in England, with around one in six of all deals in 2019 coming from the programme. Average size investments of just over £60k are meeting clear demand from the sector. These numbers show the vital role blended capital plays and the need for long-term subsidy to support it.”Stephen Muers, Interim CEO of Big Society Capital, added:“It is very pleasing to see the substantial growth in the market to the end of 2019 and the growing popularity of the different investment options available, encouraging a broader spectrum of investors into this market to create greater positive change for people across the UK.“The impact of Covid-19 has been both social and economic and I believe will be a key driver in shifting investors’ focus from a purely financial return to one that delivers a social impact too. I expect social impact investment to play an increasingly important role as an engine of the economic recovery.” UK sees six-fold increase in social impact investment market in eight years Melanie May | 28 October 2020 | News Social impact investing in the UK has grown six-fold over the past eight years, increasing from £830 million in 2011 to £5.1 billion in 2019, according to figures released today by Big Society Capital.Big Society Capital’s latest annual market estimate shows that most of the growth has come through alternatives to traditional bank lending, which have scaled 20-fold from £169 million in 2011 to £3,388 million last year. This diversity has enabled different types of investor to enter the market and increased the availability of finance options for social enterprises and charities.Most recently, between 2018 and 2019, there was just over a 20% increase in the value of social impact investments in the UK, to £5.1 billion. The number of transactions made in the sector increased by 18% year on year to more than 5,000 in 2019, with investment coming from a broad range of institutions, including venture capital funds, social banks, social property funds, charity bonds and specialist lenders.

South’s labor movement challenges North Carolina right wing

first_imgPeter GilbertWW photo: Brenda RyanTalk given at WWP conference by Peter Gilbert.When poverty and competition for jobs are intensified during a capitalist economic crisis, one common result is the rise of an extreme right-wing faction in the ruling class.In the U.S., this phenomenon is seen in the far-right Tea Party faction of the Republican Party. In collaboration with certain key corporations, this faction has taken complete control of the state apparatus in North Carolina.In 2011, the far-right took control of the state Legislature — the first Republican legislature in North Carolina since Reconstruction. They attempted to pass a number of reactionary measures, including stripping teachers of dues deduction, repealing the Racial Justice Act, a racist voter ID bill, and a bill that would allow hydraulic fracking for natural gas.Popular pressure forced the former Democratic governor to veto these measures, but that was only a temporary victory. In addition, the Legislature redrew all of the voting districts along racial lines to minimize the voting power of African Americans and secure right-wing control of the state government for the future.In 2012, the far-right elected Gov. Pat McCrory, a former executive with the North Carolina-based Duke Energy, the largest U.S. utility. The same election saw the passage of Amendment One, which made same-sex marriage unconstitutional in North Carolina.With McCrory in office, the right-wing takeover was complete. All of the bills that had been vetoed were quickly passed and signed, along with closing abortion clinics, massive cuts to public education, eliminating tenure for teachers, cutting unemployment support to 170,000 North Carolina workers, rejecting federal funding for Medicaid for 500,000 people, and changes to the income tax system that will benefit the rich on the backs of poor and working people.North Carolina once had a better public education system than many Southern states, and some minimal social welfare programs and some degree of environmental protections. Many of these had been hard won through decades of struggle — so why were they so easily taken away?Before I answer that question, I want to turn to the dramatic and historic fightback this year — mostly in the form of the Moral Monday movement led by the state NAACP. The first Moral Monday in April led to 17 arrests at the General Assembly, with about 50 protesters. Over the following months, this grew to almost 1,000 arrests and tens of thousands demonstrating at the General Assembly. Thousands more have attended Moral Monday demonstrations around the state.Lesson from LeninIn thinking about Moral Mondays, I was reminded of Lenin’s “Lecture on the 1905 Revolution,” where he describes the Bloody Sunday demonstration of January 1905 led by a priest, with a minimum program of “amnesty, civil liberties, fair wages, gradual transfer of the land to the people, [and] convocation of a constituent assembly on the basis of universal and equal suffrage.” These demands and even the religious character of the leadership closely match the Moral Monday demonstrations.Lenin notes that these demands are similar to the reformist demands of “social pacifists” or opportunists who try to “divert the people from the revolutionary struggle,” but he does not criticize them in this context because they show that “the uneducated workers in pre-revolutionary Russia proved by their deeds that they were straightforward people awakened to political consciousness for the first time.”Similarly in North Carolina, the Durham branch committed all of our energy to enthusiastic support of Moral Mondays because thousands of workers are awakening to political consciousness for the first time through the Moral Monday movement and out of the depths of the oppression of the working class.Many of those who attended these demonstrations were newly radicalized workers. They demonstrated their new consciousness and revolutionary potential through their deeds, their willingness to face arrest and crucially, their willingness to follow Black leadership even though the demonstrations were mostly white.I do not mean to suggest at all that we are in an analogous period in North Carolina like pre-revolutionary Russia. Lenin, in describing 1905, goes on to talk about the large number and importance of strikes among the newly developed working class. What we most desperately need in North Carolina is a strong independent labor movement led by the most oppressed workers.To return to my earlier question, the right wing was able to sweep away decades of progressive reforms in North Carolina in a matter of months because we are still the least unionized state; the state with the worst labor laws, not just right to work, but also the Jim Crow Era ban on collective bargaining for public employees.We lack a strong labor movement. The right wing’s worst attacks have fallen on teachers and public sector workers.In Russia, the newly awakened conscious grouping was directed into mass strikes. In North Carolina, it remains to be seen what we can do with this energy. The NAACP leadership has so far kept the energy from being diverted into the Democratic Party. Much of the energy has been diverted into the court challenges to these laws.Our role is and must continue to be to build the labor movement in the South by helping to build the Southern Workers Assembly and deepening our solidarity with all of its members — UE 150, the N.C. Public Service Workers Union, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, the United Food and Commercial Workers local at the Smithfield plant, and the teachers.Organize the South! Build a workers’ world!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police, private security try to suppress antiwar rally in Buffalo

first_imgBuffalo, N.Y. In conjunction with actions in the U.S. and internationally, some 50 anti-war activists demonstrated Jan. 25 in the Canalside district of the Buffalo harbor on Lake Erie. The activists called for an end to U.S. aggression against Iran and for U.S. withdrawal of all military personnel from the entire Middle East region. Buffalo, N.Y.Protesters chanted “Iran wants peace, U.S. out of the Middle East,” “1 2 3 4, we won’t fight a rich man’s war” and “Not U.S. land, not U.S. oil, U.S. off  Iraqi soil!”  Several gave speeches against U.S. imperialism, the devastating repercussions of U.S. wars abroad for people at home and of the desire for peace that the people of Iran share with people in the U.S. When protesters attempted to march around the block, they were intercepted by private security forces employed by LECOM Harborcenter, the property of natural gas billionaires, Terry and Kim Pegula. Activists were falsely informed that the Harbor sidewalk was private property and told to immediately step into the busy street. While demonstrators attempted to determine if this was a legal order, a security guard pushed one protester, first into the street and then into a parked vehicle. The guard then began shouting at a National Lawyers Guild legal observer.  Several protesters intervened when the guard attempted to place the NLG observer in a headlock and finally freed them from the guard’s grasp. Around a dozen cars from the Buffalo Police Department soon arrived, including officers wielding billy clubs and lieutenants who ordered protesters out of the street and off the adjacent Metro light rail line. In the end, no arrests were made, and the Buffalo AntiWar coalition is determined to continue demonstrating whenever and wherever necessary.The successful demonstration was organized by the Buffalo Antiwar Coalition, which includes WWP-Buffalo, IAC-Buffalo, Western New York Peace Center, Green Party of Erie County, Veterans for Peace 128, DSA-Buffalo, U.S. Friends of the Soviet People-Buffalo and U.S. Peace Council-Buffalo.
