Dogs put their lives on the line every day for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they’re detecting cancer and seizures…things even humans cannot do.”Use this link to see 20 ways to celebrate National Dog Day.Use this link to see 10 Hero Dogs to celebrate on National Dog Day.National Dog Day was started by Pet & Family Lifestyle Expert and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige in 2004.

Jintai Village Reconstruction / Rural Urban Framework

Jintai Village is located near Guangyuan, Sichuan Province — one of the places hardest hit by the May 12th Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008. The disaster left nearly 5 million people homeless and it is estimated that 80% of all buildings in the affected area were destroyed. Major reconstruction efforts have taken place. However, in July 2011, after heavy rainfall and landslides in the region around Jintai Village, many of newly rebuilt homes and some in process were once again destroyed. Despite this tragic event, locals were left without further donations or aid. With support from the local government and NGOs, this project demonstrates a socially and environmentally sustainable model for earthquake reconstruction while examining the many nuances of reconstructing a community.Save this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkSave this picture!House Section DiagramSave this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkA total of twenty-two houses were rebuilt including a community center. The design strategy provides four different types of houses, differing in size, function and their roof sections. These demonstrate new uses of local materials, a green stepped-roof, biogas technologies, and accommodation for pigs and chickens. A vertical courtyard increases light and ventilation and channels rainwater for collection. The design also invests in reed bed waste-water treatment and collective animal rearing. By relating various programs of the village to an ecological cycle, environment responsiveness is heightened, transforming the village into a model for nearby areas.Save this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkSave this picture!MasterplanBecause the land available for house building is limited, the village combines dense urban living in a rural context. The rooftops support individual household farming, whereas open spaces on the ground level allow for individual family-owned workshops. The design of the village preserves the ideal of the common good, and proposes a rethinking of the modern rural landscape.Save this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkSave this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkThis is an investigation into modern rural livelihood. With tens of thousands of newly planned villages occurring in China today, the challenge is to plan villages as authentic places whereby the spatial organization and physical expression is derived directly from its relationship to its natural environment.Save this picture!via Rural Urban FrameworkProject gallerySee allShow lessMaison De La Culture / Atelier 56SSelected ProjectsRural Hotel / Rómulo NetoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Nanjiang, Bazhong, Sichuan, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Rock House / The Grid Architects

A small, intimate weekend home situated at Gujarat – Ahmedabad that celebrates materiality and the relationship between the manmade and the natural – reducing carbon footprints. We used earthy, local materials, shaped and worked by local hands, to build this modest, private retreat. The surroundings were left largely undisturbed while building this ecologically sensitive accommodationSave this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe ethos. The dwelling is home to a couple who were desirous of a space that would reconcile privacy with transparency and possess a strong connection to the outside. The key to this project was to build the home around nature instead of weaving nature into the home. There is a modesty of articulation, which is rich with consideration for the environment, as well as the consciousness that a weekend home should offer you an experience that is fundamentally different from a routine one. Natural and raw materials were the primary medium through which this guiding principle was articulated.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaIn addition to the organic envelope. the building features water bodies and is surrounded by local species of insect repellent plants — thus developing its own micro-ecosystem. The programme and planning were also driven by this objective for communing with nature. We minimised the built-form — which was designed as a shelter for essential activities so that most of the day was spent outside.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe setting. The site is surrounded by large local mature trees that act as natural sun-breakers, shading all the pathways and the periphery of the home. These provide shelter and sustenance to a variety of birds and small fauna, encouraging biodiversity. We consciously stayed away from fragmenting the overall landscape with compound walls/boundaries and the home relies on the natural boundaries created by the vegetation for a notion of privacy. Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaThe architectural formalisation. The built-form is articulated as a modest single-storey H-shaped block that impinges upon the visual surroundings very gently.  The plinth is raised by two feet to provide a small vantage point. The envelope uses locally sourced Dhrangadhdra yellow stone for the foundation as well as the construction — thus its name, Rock House.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaAligned to the central philosophy of the project, the one-foot-thick stone walls retain the material’s original raw form both inside and outside and dispense with any sort of cosmetic layering. The floor-to-ceiling glazing strengthens the home’s connection with nature, making its play of seasons, light, and shadows an intimate part of the internal experience. The living spaces are column-free to allow an unobstructed view of the surroundings. The stone and glass facade act as a bridge that links the home to the green landscaping.Save this picture!© Photographix IndiaProject gallerySee allShow lessInvolve / bandesignSelected ProjectsFamily House in Klostar Ivanic / ATMOSFERASelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958222/rock-house-the-grid-architects Clipboard Projects Architects: The Grid Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Rock House / The Grid Architects 2021 CopyAbout this officeThe Grid ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadOn FacebookIndiaPublished on March 10, 2021Cite: “Rock House / The Grid Architects” 09 Mar 2021.

Pasadena Fire Department Kicks Off Brush Inspections as Temperatures Rise

The Pasadena Fire Dept. says Be Fire Safe and Make Plans to Get Rid of It Now. Courtesy photoIn anticipation of another long, hot, dry summer caused in part by average to above average rainfall, the Pasadena Fire Department has kicked off its hazardous vegetation inspections.Hazardous vegetation will be well grown by mid-summer, according to a release by the city.Therefore, it’s vital the department continue to conduct hazardous vegetation inspections.“We recognize that the risk of brushfires is extremely high in our urban interface. That risk must be mitigated for the safety of our residents and our fire suppression crews. Because we conduct fire inspections outdoors, we’re able to adequately socially distance ourselves from residents,” said Interim Fire Chief Bryan Frieders.Fire personnel will wear face masks and practice social distancing when encountering homeowners. Fire personnel will work with homeowners to gain compliance during inspection to clear vegetation, but homeowners should recognize that brush clearance is essential to prevent brushfires, protect property, and save lives.April typically marks the start of the fire department’s Vegetation Management Inspection Program. In advance ofannual brush inspections, notification letters were mailed in early March to property owners in Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHSZ) to give them ample time to abate hazardous brush. The goal is to inspect all properties involved and receive their compliance by June 30, 2020.For additional information on Pasadena Fire Department’s Vegetation Management Inspection Program, contact (626) 744-7177. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Your email address will not be published.
