This home is sited among villas within the grounds of a golf course that also has tennis courts and a hot springs spa. It is outside of the urban planning area. From the road to the site is an uphill slope with an elevation difference of up to 6m. Behind the site lies an expansive landscape of wooded hillsides and golf course fairways. 
Save this picture!SectionThe clients, a couple of golf lovers, wanted a place for special moments of reunion with gathered family and friends while enjoying a view of the fairway. To give their gatherings the desired view, the living-dining area had to be built at an elevation 6m above the road level. I wanted to let this elderly married couple enjoy the 6m height, but an ascent to the living-dining area was also needed.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaOf course I also planned for a panoramic view of the landscape to become an integral part of the living – dining space. 
When viewed from the road, parallel to the slope surface, there are three large sloping eaves with a large overhang, and the two planes with large volumes are connected, passing through the corridor. 
The home’s cubic volume is minimized as much as possible by structuring it with four floor levels cascading along the sloped site.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaIn contrast to the many large homes in this vacation community, I wanted this residence to be adapted to the environment with quiet dignity. 
An exposed concrete wall faces the front walkway. A thin, horizontally elongated roof is visible, and as one enters from the gate, an inner garden of plantings is seen to the left, and a bench to the right.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaThe walkway continues until reaching the foyer. 
From the front door, a corridor leads to the back, connecting to the living-dining-kitchen area. Three stairs go up to the dining-kitchen, which has the highest floor level and a total height difference of 3m, and stairs continue to the second floor, while rooms and bathrooms are arranged on the way. 
East and south of the living-dining-kitchen area, there is a wooden frame with cedar paneling and wide glass windows. The fairway and expansive natural landscape are visible outside.Save this picture!First Floor PlanAlso, a large terrace is located at the south side of the dining-kitchen, where the whole family can enjoy an outdoor barbecue while taking in the surrounding greenery. 
Wrapped within a backdrop of natural beauty, this residence is the perfect place to enjoy leisurely at-home time with family and friends, and outdoor fun times as well.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaProject gallerySee allShow lessHDJ75 / T38 studioSelected ProjectsTetris House / Studio MK27 – Marcio Kogan + Carolina CastroviejoSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Sayo, Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeDen Nen ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSayoJapanPublished on November 19, 2014Cite: “House in Sayo / Den Nen Architecture” 19 Nov 2014.

Saint Mary’s theater department prepares to present spring musical

first_imgSaint Mary’s College will host “Extraordinary Women: A Musical Cabaret,” from April 5-7, stage director and associate professor of theater Mark Abram-Copenhaver said.“On Friday and Saturday, there will be an early and late show, with times to be decided,” he said.Abram-Copenhaver said the musical follows a musical revue style, revolving around a theme with songs from a variety of composers. This year’s theme highlights the women of various musical productions.“In a lot of musical theater, we end up with female characters whose sole purpose for being there is either to be wanted by a man, pursuing a man or something having to do with who they are relative to the male characters,” he said. “The male characters are doing something in the world, and the female characters are focused on them.”The musical will feature a variety of songs, which will be chosen to fit the members of the cast. The musical will also have non-singing roles, performed by show’s narrators.“What’s great about [the musical] is that it will be an evening filled with the show stopping numbers from lots of different musicals,” Abram-Copenhaver said. “We think we’re going to have somewhere between 20 to 25 songs in it. Exactly what songs depends on who auditions because we’re going to match the songs to the performers who come out.”This year, the musical will take place in Welsh Parlor, rather than the Moreau Center for the Arts, which hosted the performances in previous years.“All the audience will be seated at little tables as it is going to be performed in cabaret style with a small musical ensemble,” Abram-Copenhaver said. “It will be a unique experience, very different than other musicals we have done.”  Abram-Copenhaver said the change in style from a traditional musical will give more students the chance to participate.“We wanted to do a musical this year, and this [style] gave us the opportunity to involve the largest number of students,” he said.The announcement of this year’s spring musical comes with the introduction of a new musical theater minor.“We are launching a musical theater minor this year, and we wanted to promote the maximum number of students in making musical theater, [because] we know that a lot of students worked in musicals in high school,” Abram-Copenhaver said.Abram-Copenhaver said he is excited to highlight women characters in musical theater who are more than just “sad girl[s] with crush[es].”“One of the pieces of commentary I read said that what musicals tend to do is to take female characters and turn them into sad girls with a crush, so what this evening is going to be is everything else,” he said. “It is going to have no sad girls with a crush. It’s an evening about dreaming, and characters who are struggling, and characters who are redefining their relationships, and also characters who are being inspirational, but also characters who are being defiant … and then we have characters who are being victorious.”Auditions will be held Jan. 30 and 31 at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater.Tags: Musical, musical theatre, Saint Mary’s theatre, Theatrelast_img read more

All Partners Access Network (APAN): Your Social Networking Site for Knowledge, Resources and Collaboration

first_img Can a social networking site save lives? Can it guide rescue teams to a precise location in Port-au-Prince, Haiti thirteen days after a devastating earthquake shakes the city, and rescue survivors? Yes. Posts by users of APAN (All Partners Access Network) on January 25, 2010 indicated reports of calls for help coming from beneath the rubble at a local market. Within 30 minutes a reply was posted on the site with information on the location of a survivor who had been communicating via SMS. The flow of information via the threads posted on APAN led rescue teams to the market, where they were able to find survivors. In another example of the versatility and rapid response capabilities of the networking site, at the height of disaster relief operations in Haiti, a request for assistance was submitted to APAN by a non-governmental organization in need of 150 tents. Within an hour, a reply was posted indicating that the United States government aid agency, USAID, would be able to assist. Additional posts informed the team that another non-governmental organization stationed nearby had 10 tents available. APAN, a United Stated Department of Defense social networking site, was originally established for the Asia-Pacific region and was successfully used as a vital coordination tool for disaster relief operations during the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. Previously known as the Asia Pacific Area Network, APAN rapidly evolved into a global site hosting multiple communities and an ever-expanding number of members. APAN today is a platform that connects people and information via a virtual workspace to foster information sharing that reaches across organizational and geographic boundaries. In essence, the site hosts a community of communities. “In the same way that social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter revolutionized the way people communicate with one another, APAN is revolutionizing the way we share information with our interagency partners, NGOs, and even with private businesses that join with us to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Sharing this information with Partner Nations is a logical next step,” said General Douglas Fraser, Commander, U.S. Southern Command. This web 2.0 service combines the benefits of unstructured collaboration (wikis, blogs, and forums) and structured collaboration (file sharing, calendar) with the personalization of social networking. As a community of communities, the operational concept is group centric — users join groups or communities of interest in order to observe, participate and/or collaborate. Groups or communities of interest can be geo-centric or issue specific, while users can leverage APAN’s social networking environment to form contacts that cut across the original communities to create new groups of interest. Since its creation, APAN has been an increasingly popular networking tool used by international organizations, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and individuals. Some of the areas of interest hosted by APAN include world health issues, environmental concerns, support to civil authorities/law enforcement, conflict resolution, illicit trafficking, security during major events such as the World Cup or the Olympics, and preparation for training and exercises. The APAN platform allows group members to post articles, participate in live discussions and build relationships based on their common interests. The platform facilitates research by providing a data base search method using key words to gain access to content, information and people. The search capabilities can pinpoint the type of expert help or information required to get you in touch with the right people — in the right place and at the right time. For example, if you are looking for an “engineering expert” in Panama, key words like profession, country and language will help you find the right person to assist you on your chosen topic. Other tools like three-dimensional maps, group calendars, multi-lingual chat sites with embedded translation features and discussion forums, make APAN a vibrant hub of information sharing that spans organizations and boundaries. APAN is particularly useful for sharing knowledge and contacts for conferences, events, training and exercise missions, in addition to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations. The United States Southern Command (USSOUTHCOM), a member of the APAN family, is expanding the functions of APAN to provide more technical support and training for APAN users, in order to increase information sharing among participants who are interested in working alongside the United States Southern Command and among each other. USSOUTHCOM utilizes APAN’s facilities particularly for humanitarian assistance operations and deployments, environmental security, maritime domain awareness, training and exercises. “As USSOUTHCOM moved forward to support disaster relief efforts in Haiti, we found that APAN became an invaluable tool for coordinating with many of our interagency and NGO partners,” added General Fraser. Currently, the site hosts over 300 communities from around the world, but the membership rate is expanding quickly due to APAN’s easy, safe, reliable and free access to information and networking. APAN is currently the best way to network and access information available online to communities of interest around the world: a one-stop site for the ever-expanding and innovative networking connections of the future.

Bayern look to Lewandowski in bid to catch title challengers

first_imgRobert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick against Schalke last weekend to give Bayern Munich their first win of the seasonBerlin, Germany | AFP | Polish striker Robert Lewandowski will once again take centre-stage as Bayern Munich look to catch up with their Bundesliga title challengers with a home win over strugglers Mainz on Saturday.Two days after signing a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2023, the 31-year-old will be eager to add to the six goals he has also scored this season, even as champions Bayern dropped early points in the title race.His hat-trick against Schalke last week fired Bayern to their first league win of the season, keeping Niko Kovac’s side within two points of rivals Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen.Lewandowski’s decision to extend his contract is a massive boost to Bayern as they look to retain the Bundesliga title and reimpose themselves as a major European power.“He has a lot of responsibility here at Bayern, and he lives up to that,” said coach Kovac on Thursday before the announcement of the new contract was made public.“(The contract extension) is also a sign of how important the club is to him.”Lewandowski has more than proved his worth in recent weeks, and more goals are expected on Saturday afternoon.The Polish star has a sparkling record of 14 goals in 17 appearances against Mainz, who have lost their opening two games.– Hazard out for Dortmund –With Lewandowski’s contract negotiations and uncertainty over the future of club president Uli Hoeness  off-field matters have somewhat overshadowed Bayern’s preparations this week.Yet Kovac’s side, who sit in a lowly sixth thanks to their opening day draw with Hertha Berlin, cannot afford any on-field slips on Saturday.Dortmund, Leipzig and Leverkusen finished in the top four behind Bayern last season, and all have picked up maximum points from their opening two games.Kovac admitted on Thursday that Bayern may face more competitors for the title than they have in previous years.“I think the same teams will be at the top again. The gap between those at the top and mid-table will get bigger,” he said.Leipzig travel to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Friday evening, while Leverkusen host Hoffenheim on Saturday.Table-toppers Dortmund face a reunion with former player Neven Subotic on their visit to promoted side Union Berlin on Saturday evening. Subotic, who alongside Lewandowski won back-to-back Bundesliga titles for Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp in 2011 and 2012, said this week that he was still close to his former team-mates.“What we experienced together back then, it was bit like going to the moon. You try to explain to other people what it was like, but words aren’t enough,” he told broadcaster RTL.Yet Subotic, who moved to Union before the beginning of the season, said that even at Dortmund, he had never experienced support quite like that at the East Berlin club.“I have experienced a lot, but the way the Union fans celebrated us after we lost 4-0 to RB Leipzig, I have never experienced anything like that,” he said.Union, still searching for their first ever Bundesliga win, face a formidable Dortmund side who have scored eight goals in their first two games.Dortmund coach Lucien Favre will have to do without Belgian winger Thorgan Hazard, who has been ruled out for several weeks after picking up a rib injury against Cologne last weekend.Hazard’s fellow new arrival Julian Brandt is therefore expected to make his first start for Dortmund.Bundesliga fixtures (kick-off times 1330 GMT unless stated):FridayBorussia Moenchengladbach v RB Leipzig (1830)SaturdayBayern Munich v Mainz, Bayer Leverkusen v Hoffenheim, Wolfsburg v Paderborn, Freiburg v Cologne, Schalke v Hertha Berlin, Union Berlin v Borussia Dortmund (1630)SundayWerder Bremen v Augsburg, Eintracht Frankfurt v Fortuna Duesseldorf (1600)Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
