Design Direction.Busan City suddenly had swollen by the influx of refugees during Korea War. The refugees had built irregular shape’s homes according to the topography of mountains in Busan City in a short time. Numerous alleys has stemmed from the relations of the houses. Now, 65 years after Korea war, the irregular houses’s urban fabric becomes a unique feature of Busan City. The view suddenly appearing through alleys and houses forms a distinguish urban landscape from other cities.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanSave this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanAAWH is a project to compose city alleys in a space, House. A curvy mass was naturally extended from the east hill of the site to sea. In accordance with the mass, the main circulations were set on each floor. Eight stairs crossing the main circulations and One tube bridge were placed in the mass. In this process, spaces emerged and programs were defined. In the mass, alleys and spaces coexist. User can constantly combine new route with the alleys in the house. Windows of limited visibility provides new awareness the landscape of the hill and sea.Save this picture!Floor PlanProgram Proposal.Songdo Beach was the first Public Beach of the nation. It had time receiving spotlight as luxury vacation spot and honeymoon destination before and after Korean Liberation. In the storm of developing in 19060s~70s, bad quality’s commercial facilities like raw fish house had occupied the beach and people had hesitated to visit the beach. After experiencing the damaging effects of these indiscriminate development, a variety of restrictions and the efforts of citizen community has made water clean and transformed the beach into a favorite place for family vacationer.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanSave this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanOnce Songdo Beach was called as Napoli of Korea. We proposes a resort type residence that includes a public gallery as an alternative to the positive development of Songdo Beach. In and out space of the house are filled with views of nature and recreation program. Ocean Gallery which can be open to the public will act as a beneficial cultural element in the dense commercial area. It is recovering the original value of closest beach from the old downtown of Busan and also exploring the possibility as new residential area with the good environment. Actually, after the house completion, well-designed houses with recreation programs are springing up around the site.Save this picture!SectionMaterials ExpressionIn AAWH, exposed concrete, bamboo formwork exposed concrete, pine formwork exposed concrete, wood bricks, basalt bricks, metal panels were used. These materials provide the flow of the circulations and highlight the alleys in the spaces, and therefore the spaces of programs are defined by them. Because the space can be defined by the other elements, we name the space Dependent-Independent Space.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanProject gallerySee allShow lessMidwest Inland Port Financial Town / Hallucinate Design OfficeSelected ProjectsBroadcom Yakum / Setter ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Yoon Joonhwan+ 40 Share “COPY” Gallery CopyAbout this officearchitect-KOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsCultural ArchitectureMuseums & ExhibitGalleryResidential ArchitectureHousesBusanSouth KoreaPublished on February 25, 2016Cite: “Songdo House / architect-K” 24 Feb 2016.

Council aims for more stategic HR

By on May 12, 2021

first_imgCouncil aims for more stategic HROn 25 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today Ipswich Borough Council has signed a £300,000, seven-year contract for a newonline HR and payroll system. The move aims to make the HR department a strategic business function withinthe council by moving personnel staff away from routine staff queries. Julie Price, head of HR at Ipswich Borough Council, said the deal withoutsourcing firm RebusHR would allow her six-strong HR team to focus onperformance management. Price said: “The current system needed updating. The new system willcut down on paperwork and bureaucracy while moving the HR team away fromadministration to a strategic function. “Staff will no longer have to contact the central HR team to answerfrequently asked questions, as they will have access to all the information.Managers will be greatly assisted by the information graphs helping them toplan better.” Under the scheme – to be implemented within the next 12 months – thecouncil’s 1,300 staff will be able to update employment records, view payslipsand get employment details online. Computer booths will be installed in staff rest areas for employees withoutpersonal online access. For the first time, managers will have instant access to staff information,including sickness records and retention details. Price said the deal would lead to a smaller payroll team.

Radiation belt electron precipitation due to geomagnetic storms: Significance to middle atmosphere ozone chemistry

By on May 9, 2021

first_imgGeomagnetic storms triggered by coronal mass ejections and high-speed solar wind streams can lead to enhanced losses of energetic electrons from the radiation belts into the atmosphere, both during the storm itself and also through the poststorm relaxation of enhanced radiation belt fluxes. In this study we have analyzed the impact of electron precipitation on atmospheric chemistry (30-90 km altitudes) as a result of a single geomagnetic storm. The study conditions were chosen such that there was no influence of solar proton precipitation, and thus we were able to determine the storm-induced outer radiation belt electron precipitation fluxes. We use ground-based subionospheric radio wave observations to infer the electron precipitation fluxes at L = 3.2 during a geomagnetic disturbance which occurred in September 2005. Through application of the Sodankyla Ion and Neutral Chemistry model, we examine the significance of this particular period of electron precipitation to neutral atmospheric chemistry. Building on an earlier study, we refine the quantification of the electron precipitation flux into the atmosphere by using a time-varying energy spectrum determined from the DEMETER satellite. We show that the large increases in odd nitrogen (NOx) and odd hydrogen (HOx) caused by the electron precipitation do not lead to significant in situ ozone depletion in September in the Northern Hemisphere. However, had the same precipitation been deposited into the polar winter atmosphere, it would have led to >20% in situ decreases in O-3 at 65-80 km altitudes through catalytic HOx cycles, with possible additional stratospheric O-3 depletion from descending NOx beyond the model simulation period.last_img read more

Sainsbury’s in Cowley removes ‘slave mannequin’

By on May 3, 2021

first_imgAn Oxford branch of Sainsbury’s has caused controversy on Twitter after advertising what appeared to be ‘slave fashion’ in connection with the DVD release of Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave.Twitter user and Eurosport web editor Reda Maher (@Reda_Eurosport) said: “There’s so much wrong with this I don’t know where to start. What were Sainsbury’s thinking!?”Placed at the front of the store, the advertisement featured a stand of 12 Years a Slave DVDs and a mannequin wearing clothes identical to those worn in the film by Solomon Northup, the protagonist. The outfit even comes with a twig in the pocket.The mannequin wore a tag round its neck with a price tag on it, though it did not appear as if the clothes themselves were actually for sale.Somerville student Andrew McLean commented: “the clothing of a slave on a mannequin suggests an image to be bought and emulated as fashion.“But on the other hand it will just have been a handy human-shaped thing to put the clothes on. Clearly unintentional, but it accidentally sidesteps much of the issue at hand and makes it commercial”.Meanwhile, Worcester student Oliver Davies remarked that the move was “probably not malicious, but hugely inappopriate and doesn’t really show an understanding of what the film’s about”.Steve McQueen’s 2013 film about slavery tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a New York State-born free African American man who was kidnapped in Washington, D.C. in 1841 and sold into slavery. He worked as a slave for twelve years before he was eventually released.The film serves as an uncomfortable reminder of slavery to the Western world, and its success has brought slavery in its current form into the public eye and even into Westminster, where the government is currently drafting a Modern Slavery bill.Management at the Heyford Hill store declined to comment when asked, as did several staff members.Sainsbury’s released this statement: “We can only apologise.  It’s been taken down from the Heyford Hill store and clearly should never have gone up in the first place”, but refused to answer further questions.last_img read more

Former US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is coming to Oxford

By on

first_imgThe former US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is coming to Oxford for a book launch.The US senator, who was beaten by Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination last year, will speak at the Sheldonian Theatre to promote the paperback edition of his bestselling book on his failed presidential bid.The event will be chaired by Helena Kennedy, the Principal of Mansfield College.Sanders is not new to Oxford, as his brother, Larry, lives in the East of the city. He ran as the Green Party candidate in last year’s by-election in David Cameron’s old seat of Witney, close to Oxford.The talk is set to be held at 2.30pm and is titled ‘Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in’ – the slogan of his failed presidential bid. Tickets will cost £15.Sanders was recently confirmed as one of this term’s speakers at the Cambridge Union. However, he did not feature in the Oxford Union’s Trinity term card, leaked exclusively by Cherwell last week.The talk forms part of a wider literary event – The Hay Festival – to be held in Wales. Festival director Peter Florence is hopeful the left-winger will inspire students and young people attending.He told the Oxford Mail: “What we hope from Bernie is that he’ll galvanize young people like he did in America. The way he’s working to interrogate every stupid bill in the Senate is heroic and essential. He’s a model opposition leader.”Waterstones will be selling books after Sanders’ visit.Tickets can be purchased at hayfestival.org or by calling 01497 822 629.last_img read more
