The requirement is about a house for a mature couple, with no kids, which once retired decides to leave the city and settle in this place near to the sea. The site, located between the road and a forest path, has a soft slope to the west and a distant view to the ocean from a higher ground, above the nearby houses. Such a view appears as the main virtue of the place along with the inmediate presence of a young eucalyptus forest with some native species.Save this picture!© James FlorioThe project includes a double house program, both conected through a common service area, and it is formed by two bodies coming from east to west, and a bigger one between them which contains the entrance, living room and a studio, everything within a double height place that also proposes a visual limit that shows a glimpse of the near landscape.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe main house goes along a inner corridor divided in three consecutive parts, built in rough concrete, that shows the program from private to common places, and whose exterior forms a hundred squared meters terrace that becomes the house’s core, defining  a new system of exterior circulations among its differente spaces. The fourth side of that terrace, also in concrete, regulates its relation with the landscape and the sea, framing that faraway view and leaving the nearby houses out of it. It also protects the terrace from the winds coming up from the beach and adds it to the front facade, since the access to the site is from the west. Save this picture!© James FlorioThough the house is organized around an open space, the squared terrace allows it to keep its privacy so it doesn’t run away into the lanscape. This central space its configured by an element, the corridor, that not only contains and determinates where eyes and feet may go, but also works as the structural spine of the building.

FIFA estimates Covid-19 will cost global soccer $11 billion

first_img“In particular in South America, many on account of their relative means and the spring to autumn season,” he said.Last month European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli predicted lost revenue of four billion euros over two years for its member clubs.Each national association can request a FIFA grant of $1million ($2mn for confederations) plus $500,000 for women’s soccer.Loans are available to national associations up to a maximum value of $5mn ($4mn for confederations).Rehn was at pains to stress that unlike in the past it was imperative the money made available by FIFA “is being used for the right purposes”.”Corruption has no room in soccer,” he stated.”Good governance is at the heart of this Covid-19 relief fund,” he said.”We have made this clear to member associations. I know some member associations have complained about heavy compliance procedures – I’m quite used to that. We do require full compliance and we have been working with globally-known auditing companies.”He gave some examples of how the relief fund is already being put into use, like in Thailand, where it has helped restart the national league competition, including coronavirus testing, but also to implement video assistant referee (VAR) technology.Mexico spent its entire $1.5million grant on its national women’s league, and in Brazil the funds are supporting the testing program in the women’s competition.And in Uruguay, the money has helped the federation re-hire staff it had been forced to lay off, who were crucial to its effective operation. FIFA on Wednesday put the cost of Covid-19 on soccer around the world at $11 billion in lost revenue.The pandemic has already led to over 150 soccer associations to seek financial help from the $1.5 billion emergency relief fund set up by soccer’s governing body.Olli Rehn, chairman of FIFA’s coronavirus steering committee, laid bare for the first time the true financial impact the virus has had on the game through fixture list chaos, empty stadiums and loss of TV rights revenue. “It’s a huge number and it covers the football economy in its entirety, including all youth academies,” Rehn, a Finnish politician and governor of the Bank of Finland, told a press conference.”This will impact next year as well, there is a carry over.””That is why this Covid-19 relief fund is not time-bound – they may request loans later on if they need to,” Rehn, who is also independent deputy chairman of the FIFA Governance Committee, said.He said that while Europe was hit hardest in terms of absolute cost, it was the associations outside Europe which “have suffered more”.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Grealish warned off Twitter

first_imgPaul Lambert has warned Aston Villa teenager Jack Grealish after the midfielder vented his frustrations on Twitter. The 19-year-old tweeted this week “can’t wait to be happy playing football again” after dropping out of the first-team picture at Villa Park. He is believed to have been disciplined by Lambert and the Scot has advised Grealish, who has made 11 appearances this season, to avoid the social media site. Carles Gil could make his full debut against the Cherries after signing from Valencia this month but Lambert warned the midfielder’s arrival could be the only one at Villa in January with their interest in Manchester City’s Scott Sinclair over. “Yes, there’s a good chance that could be, a good chance,” said Lambert. “I don’t expect much, that’s the reality of it, if something happens then great but it’s got to be right for this club, financially, to do it. “Scott Sinclair one is dead anyway. It’s not going to go anywhere.” Villa are looking to progress in the Cup after being dumped out by Sheffield United in the third round last season. Bournemouth have scored 57 league goals compared to Villa’s 11 as the country’s leading scorers go to the lowest. And Lambert has underlined the importance of the Cup after his comments about the competition being a “distraction” were misunderstood last season. He said: “I got pilloried last year. “The FA Cup is vital to this football club and we will go and try and win it. “We have to have a cup run. “If we can get a good cup run it is then in the memory for everyone. We would love to go to Wembley. “We will go as strong as we can to win the game. I have rarely picked a weakened team.” He said: “I think he should stay off tweeting. “Not everyone needs to know that he’s boiling an egg. “I just wasn’t happy about it.” Grealish has been linked with a loan move and Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Peace has confirmed the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international is on his radar. Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett has dismissed a move for Grealish and Lambert insisted he has had no approaches. “Not one club have asked me personally about him,” he said. Grealish would have been expected to start in Sunday’s FA Cup visit of Bournemouth but has been ill this week. “He’s had a virus this week and only returned to training Friday so we’ll see how he is,” Lambert added.

Brown overcomes repeated injuries to lead Western Michigan in scoring

first_imgDavid Brown would wake up some nights with a sharp pain in his leg and tears streaming down his face.Then a sophomore, the Western Michigan guard had just finished surgery on his season-ending ACL tear, and was back home with his family.Many nights he’d struggle to fall back asleep.“It was late nights of me crying,” Brown said. “And late nights of me thinking if I could ever come back and play the game of basketball again.”Brown suffered an ankle injury in high school, and two ACL injuries in college. In his own words, he came back from something that most wouldn’t even dream of.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd he hasn’t just come back, but reached an elite level. He leads the Mid-American Conference in scoring at 19.4 points per game, and has started all 29 games this season after just four in his previous four years with the team.“It’s not an easy thing. And literally there were blood, sweat and tears,” Broncos head coach Steve Hawkins said. “All the doubts about ‘Am I going to be able to realize my dream of a decent career.’“We really thought he was not going to be back after the last one.”Brown was a star at Hononegah (Ill.) High School. He averaged 17 points per game as a senior, led his team to a school record in wins and captured multiple conference championships. His head coach Mike Miller could only recall two other players from the program that had went on to play Division I.After coming to Hononegah as an underwhelming freshman that couldn’t hit a free throw, he left a prolific scorer. Brown would spend his lunch hours going into the athletic office to watch both game film and films on coach tips.By the time he was a senior, big-time programs like Florida and Kentucky were calling Miller to ask about him.But a sprained right ankle changed all of that. His stock fell. The high-profile offers were no longer on the table.“As soon as you go down with an ankle injury, it’s unbelievable how quickly a big-time school will stop calling, and take back their scholarship,” Brown said. “But that’s something Western never did. Western called me every day.”WMU knew the type of player that Brown could be. Everyone at Hononegah knew the type of player he could be, but when he finally got to college, years of constant injuries prevented him from proving that to everyone else.After playing sparingly in his first year, Brown re-injured his right ankle as a sophomore and took a medical redshirt after playing in nine games. The next year, he tore his ACL and two menisci in his right knee against Duquesne on Dec. 17, 2011.And last season, he missed the first 13 games of the Broncos’ season with a torn MCL.“I’ve kind of come to learn that everything’s possible with David,” Miller said. “But it’s a situation where I think he was concerned, I think everybody was concerned that things might not work out. It seemed like he was snake-bit.”But this season, all the injuries, setbacks and sleepless nights crying came to an end.In the MAC tournament semifinals against Akron, Brown finished just 4-of-15 from the field. In the finals, he bounced back to score 32 points and lead the Broncos to their first NCAA Tournament in 10 years.“Those two games probably epitomize who he is,” Hawkins said. “He has a bad shooting night, or someone does a good job on him, he’s able to bounce back pretty quick. He’s a confident player. You’ve got to have somebody like that on your team.”What’s been a career full of disappointment and pain has somehow culminated in an NCAA Tournament for Brown. He’s been getting messages from his friends back home about how they’re excited to watch him play against Syracuse.Miller said he was cancelling his science class Thursday and driving up all night to watch Brown take the court.For Brown, playing in this game means more than just reaching the NCAA Tournament.It’s about the journey he took to get there.“It was something that I always dreamed about,” Brown said. “And when it happened it was breathtaking.“A dream actually came true.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 19, 2014 at 11:30 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3last_img read more
