The negative space is conceived as the open space or public area, which is contained but not occupied, it has exactly the same dimensions but is not built, creating a dialogue between this counterparts.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe built block dialogues with its open counterpart through a transparent façade all along the side, leaving open one of its faces. In this way, the only closed elements are the private areas such as bathrooms and kitchen.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe counterpart of the transparent façade is a solid wall with the same height that contains the open space.

The project is located on a waterfront site in Coral Gables, facing east, with views across Biscayne Bay to Downtown Miami and the barrier islands of Key Biscayne. Save this picture!© Robin HillThe City of Coral Gables has a prescriptive zoning code that favors historical “styles” over contemporary design. This apparent conflict between our client’s fantasy of a modern home and the City’s classically-oriented design code helped to inform the design. Save this picture!© Robin HillThe “City-side” façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the larger, main volume is clad in honed limestone.  The mask is penetrated by only two openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Very little of the house is visible from the street – even the thrust of the sculptural roof is hidden from view. Save this picture!© Robin HillOn the “Bay-side” the true nature of the house and the Client’s desire for soaring roofs, glass walls and building materials of our time are openly expressed.

first_imgChristine Daure-SerfatyHuman rights activist News Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists My Dear Ali, I’m writing to you because I can’t see or speak to you. An open letter too, because I’m not sure it will get to you. When Abraham was in prison, I didn’t like giving other people letters for him in case it put them in danger.So here I am in October 2003 involved once again with political detentions in Morocco. Because that’s what you are – a political prisoner – just like some of the Islamists now, just like Abraham and his friends in Kenitra prison were, along with so many others in jails from Tangiers to Marrakesh, during the years of darkness. Abroad, people aren’t fooled. This summer, when I told people things had changed in Morocco over the past four years, they’d reply: “Is that journalist still in jail there?”Yes, things have changed. I’m here with Abraham and I can reach you through the media. But not everything’s different. We still haven’t got some of the most obvious elements of democracy that we’d hoped for, such as freedom of expression. We’d also hoped for abolition of the death penalty, which hangs over the heads of those convicted of terrorism and which, whatever the crime, should not be a part of justice anywhere.Replacing treason with defamation, reducing the number of taboos that clutter up life in Morocco (especially the dilapidated palace being sold that made us laugh so much) and forcing thieves, corrupt people and dealers to give back their ill-gotten gains. Was that all we were hoping for?The hardest things, I know, will take time, but we won’t rest and won’t forget. People in the countryside, in cities and slums, must be able to live, feed themselves, have medical care, go to school, have social justice and so find dignity.It’s all that we’ve fought so hard for and it’s that we going to keep on fighting for.This letter is a start. We’ll write to you again, each month, out of friendship and solidarity or to tell you what the country and the world is thinking. Even if we have to write them for three years.

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today called for Liberal Party representative Romualdo Bueso Melghem, the vice-president of the parliamentary commission for ethnic minorities, to be stripped of his parliamentary mandate for assaulting and trying to strangle community journalist Martha Vásquez, a member of the Lenca indigenous group.The attack on Vásquez, who is a contributor to the Indymedia website, took place during a public meeting attended by senior officials that was organised by the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organisations of Honduras (COPINH) on 2 April in the southwestern city of Intibucá.“This degree of violence is completely unacceptable from a parliamentarian, but all the more so when he is the vice-president of a commission that is supposed to promote dialogue with the indigenous communities,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The COPINH has criticised Bueso’s derogatory attitude towards the Lenca people several times in the past and we hope that this time he will be stripped of his mandate and receive an appropriate punishment,” the press freedom organisation continued. “It would be unthinkable for him to allowed to continue, especially as the health minister and a presidential representative witnessed the attack.”Health minister Orizon Velásquez and presidential representative Arcadia Gómez were among the participants at the meeting on health issues with some 200 COPINH delegates at the council’s headquarters in Intibucá. It was interrupted half way through the morning when a group of gunmen burst in and said it could not go on without Bueso’s permission.According to COPINH, Bueso himself arrived a few minutes later and angrily singled out one of the delegates, Salvador Zúniga, telling him “his death was planned and would be easy to carry out.” Suddenly realising Vásquez was recording his threats, he turned on her, hit her, grabbed her tape recorder and tried to strangle her. Two other delegates were injured and received death threats during the incident.Vásquez’s ethnic group is represented on the COPINH and she was attending the meeting in her capacity as the COPINH’s press and communications representative.

Union of India, the court had “only made a limited declaration to decriminalize a particular human behavior, which was a penal offence under S.377 IPC. The said declaration was neither intended to, nor did in fact, legitimise the conduct in question.” Observations in ‘Puttaswamy Judgment'(Privacy Case) and ‘Navtej Johar’ case(which struck down Sec 377 IPC) do not confer a fundamental right to seek recognition of same-sex marriages, the Centre argued.Central Government opposes plea for recognition for same-sex marriages. There is no fundamental right to seek recognition for same-sex marriage, Centre tells Delhi High Court.Courts cannot give legal recognition to such marriages when statute does not allow it, Centre adds. pic.twitter.com/5hE1bFI2vq— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) February 25, 2021 It has also been argued by the centre that legalizing same-sex marriages was not the purview of the court, and a decision on the same has to be taken by the legislature. Towards this, the centre submits that, “The question as to whether such a relationship be permitted to be formalised by way of a legal recognition of marriage is essentially a question to be decided by the legislature and can never be a subject matter of judicial adjudication. The Hon’ble Constitutional court can analyze the existing rights but cannot create a new right by the process of judicial adjudication. The prayer made by the petitioner before this Hon’ble Court, is, therefore, wholly unsustainable, untenable and misplaced.”The affidavit further states that, in India the marriage is not just a matter of union of two individuals but a “solemn institution between a biological man and a biological woman” and goes on to give the definition of marriage as per the Black’s Law Dictionary.The centre has gone on to dispute the fact that the right to marriage falls within the right to privacy of an individual and stated that, “While a marriage may be between two private individuals having a profound impact on their private lives, it is submitted that marriage, as a public concept, is also nationally and internationally recognised as a public recognition of relationship with which several statutory rights and obligations are attached.”The Centre also said that  Western decisions sans any basis in Indian Constitutional Law Jurisprudence cannot be imported in the Indian contextSome highlights from the Centre’s affidavit “Fundamental Right under Article 21 is subject to procedure established by law and the same cannot be expanded to include the fundamental right for a same sex marriage to be recognized under the laws of the country which in fact mandate the contrary”.”Considerations of social morality are relevant in considering the validity of legislation and it is for the legislature to judge and enforce such social morality and public acceptance based on Indian ethos”.”In our country, despite statutory recognition of the relationship of marriage between a biological man and a biological woman, marriage necessarily depends upon age-old customs, rituals, practices, cultural ethos and societal values”.”Statutory recognition of marriage as a union between a ‘man’ and a ‘woman’ is intrinsically linked to the recognition of heterogeneous institution of marriage and the acceptance of the Indian society based on its cultural and societal values”.Next Storylast_img read more
