Historic dwellings like conservation shop-houses are repositories of memories, with previous lives and a past of their own. Ministry of Design explores history and our relationship with the past, present and future through the concept of layers in Canvas House at Blair Road. Blurring the boundaries between space and object, MOD conceptually blanketed Canvas House with a layer of white that provides a canvas for the future, whilst revealing historical preservation in concentrated spots. The house rhythmically reveals parts of its past, with Shadows of old timber as well as Layers of revealed brick and intricate details of re-purposed and upcycled furniture. At the same time, MOD invites visitors to imagine a future with Dream, a text-based neon piece that the studio created, with a quote by Thomas Jefferson that encapsulates MOD’s approach toCanvas House. The quote summarizes the attitude of the house; Colin explains, “it is a neutral white canvas for the future to be dreamt upon, rather than a wholesale homage to the past.”Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A PhotographySave this picture!Floor plansSave this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A Photography1. The Brief and how MOD answered it – MOD has newly completed an all-white Canvas House for co-living, set in a heritage shophouse in Singapore along Blair Road. The developer (Figment) gave us a fixed budget and 4 months (design, sourcing & fitout) to re-imagine the interiors, with the aim of renting out the suites to expats for 3-12 month stays. Rentals start from S$3300 a month. The brief was to do something absolutely appealing to long-stay renters, and a way for this co-living shophouse to stand out. Faced with a tight budget and a tight timeline, alongside the desire for an overarching concept to underpin the moves, Colin and his team conceptualized the “Canvas House”: a. Painting the entire house in white, to provide a canvas for the future, MOD decided to focus on “upcycling” to meet both constraints. b. Majority of the tables, chairs, chests, mirrors, screens and vanity desks, were repurposed and given a new lease of life. c. To pay homage to the past, yet give it character for the future, MOD painted these pieces all white but carved out “playful peek-a-boo reveals” of vignettes on the decorative dragon or longevity vases, ceramic plates hung on the wall, and wooden screens, vanity dressers and chairs. Not only is this highly sustainable in terms of upcycling, it is also budget friendly, time-constraint friendly, and conceptually striking.Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A PhotographySave this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A Photography2. “I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past” – Blurring the boundaries between space and object, MOD conceptually blanketed Canvas House with a layer of white that provides a canvas for the future, whilst revealing historical preservation in concentrated spots. P 02 Colin explains, “When it comes to adaptive reuse projects, the question is always the same, how do we tread the line between the past and the present? If one opts for the project to be just about preservation, it’s as good as time standing still… which could be paralyzing and inhibiting. But at the same time, neither do we want to disregard history completely by creating something too foreign or novel. Our response was to layer over the existing history with a proverbial blank canvas whilst leaving choreographed glimpses into the past, blanketing both space and the furniture in it – allowing us to blur the inherent boundaries between past and present, object and space.”Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A PhotographyTo present this spatially, MOD created a text-based neon art piece, featuring a quote by Thomas Jefferson that encapsulates MOD’s approach to Canvas House. The quote summarizes the attitude of the house, quoting Colin, “it is a neutral white canvas for the future to be dreamt upon, rather than a wholesale homage to the past.” Fabricated by The Signmakers, the quote is penned in a single-stroke white and red glass neon, and encased in an aluminum box measuring 1.4m x 2.2m x 0.1m.Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A Photography3. Blurring the boundaries – In a sense, the white blurs the distinction between new and old; it also blurs the distinction between the spatial elements (e.g. walls, ceiling), and the objects that sit within it (e.g. the furniture and lights). With everything white, object/space dichotomy is blurred. The house becomes more whole rather than a space populated by objects and people that move in and out. That allows the people using the space, to truly activate the space, and be the prominent features instead of merely inhabiting space.Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A Photography4. Layers and Shadows – Parts of the past are rhythmically revealed throughout the space, with Layers of revealed brick and intricate details of pre-owned furniture, and Shadows of old timber. This technique is applied to a variety of places, including round timber reveals on the stairs throughout the four-storey house, and playful peek-a-boo reveals of vignettes on decorative dragon or longevity vases, vintage ceramic plates hung on the wall, and wooden screens, vanity dressers and chairs. Historic details are preserved in a similarly conceptual fashion, where brick walls are revealed in concentrated circles. In the suites in particular, visitors will see “time shadows” cast by the beds, which reveals the underlay of the floor. Working with our builder, we marked out the outline of the afternoon-sun shadow and had the painter paint around this outline, allowing the mark of time to cast its mark on the ground.Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A Photography5. Collaborating with artist Kang to design custom lights MOD collaborated with Kang, an artist who specializes in upcycling and working with fused plastic to craft fashion accessories, to produce his first series of lights. Part of MOD’s incubation program, Kang works from the MOD office to craft his materials. MOD collaborated with Kang to create 3 sets of  luminaries with fused plastic made from cling film, placed at the five-foot-way, the living and the atrium areas. Keeping to the theme of layers, the cling film was layered and then ironed and heated to create a waterproof, leathery material.Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks, CI&A PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessMaison TL / Nghia-ArchitectSelected ProjectsOpen Call for Curator Lecture Series Auditorium 20/21Call for SubmissionsProject locationAddress:28 Blair Rd, SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

Teenage girl dies after saving younger brother when they fell in frozen lake

first_imgreal444/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A teenage girl has died after saving her brother when they both fell into a frozen lake in Ohio, officials said.An officer who responded to the drowning incident also died, authorities said.The 16-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy fell through the ice near boat docks at Rocky Fork State Park in Hillsboro on Tuesday evening, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The 911 call came in around 6:30 p.m.By the time the Paint Creek Joint EMS and Fire District arrived, the girl was under the ice, according to Lt. Branden Jackman. The water was 36 degrees, he said.The boy was taken to the hospital in stable condition, but his sister was recovered by divers unresponsive, authorities said. She has not been identified publicly by authorities.“She got him out, before she succumbed,” Jackman told Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO-TV.While at the scene, Ohio Department of Natural Resources Officer Jason Lagore suffered a medical emergency and was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the department said. It did not provide details on the medical emergency.A 15-year veteran of the department, Lagore founded its first K-9 academy and led its Division of Parks and Watercraft K-9 training program.“Our hearts are with the family and loved ones of Officer Jason Lagore, who died in the line of duty last night,” Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Mary Mertz said in a statement Wednesday. “Our law enforcement officers and their families carry a unique and challenging burden of responsibilities, and we are deeply grateful for their service.”Lagore is survived by his wife, two young sons and K-9 partner, Sarge, the department said.On Wednesday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered flags lowered on public buildings and grounds in Highland County and several other locations “in honor of his life and service.”Jackman had a message for Ohioans the day after the deadly incident.“Don’t go out on the ice,” he told WCPO. “It caused a very bad tragedy last night.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Keeping safe from pandemic during the holidays

first_imgWith the coronavirus pandemic worsening again,  the holidays are going to be a challenge this year, so a Harvard epidemiologist offered something of a survival guide for navigating travel, family gatherings, and other autumnal activities.William Hanage, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said it’s important to remember the advice we’ve already been given about limiting the size of gatherings, using masks, avoiding crowds, and sanitizing hands. He also urged people to remember the importance of adequate ventilation, even if it means cracking open doors and windows when sitting down to a family dinner in November or December.“It may be somewhat cold in the room, but this is an opportunity to get out those fall sweaters we all like to wear,” Hanage said during a Facebook Live event co-sponsored by The Forum at Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health and PRI’s “The World.”Cases of COVID-19 have been rising nationally over the last few weeks, with more than 10 million by Nov. 9, while estimated deaths reached 238,000, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Coronavirus transmission is heightened in poorly ventilated indoor spaces, where people aren’t distancing or using masks, Hanage said. That explains recent outbreaks linked to restaurant dining and highlights the upcoming hazards of the holidays, when far-flung families gather for meals.“We can see the way holidays have the potential to be a real serious problem in pandemic transmission,” Hanage said. He offered this advice for the weeks ahead:Travel: Welcoming college students home for the holidays doesn’t have to be a risky endeavor. Hanage said some institutions are doing a good job keeping outbreaks off campus and, when they do occur, stamping them out before they spread widely. The result, he said, is that some campuses have lower incidence of the disease than their surrounding communities. Holiday travelers should consider getting tested before they leave and, in the event of a negative test, refrain from viewing it as a free pass — false negatives are possible, and the virus can be picked up en route. That means it’s still important that travelers use masks, distance, sanitize their hands, and take other routine precautions.Thanksgiving and beyond: When gathering for family dinners, Hanage said it’s important to remember that the risk of developing a serious illness increases rapidly for those over 40. A 50-year-old’s risk of dying from COVID-19 is 200 times higher than normal, Hanage said. It has long been recognized that a surge in cases of invasive pneumococcal disease — which can cause pneumonia or meningitis — in older individuals typically occurs after the holidays, likely due to contact with younger people with mild illness. That highlights the importance of ensuring that any gathering takes place in a safe setting, preferably one with plenty of ventilation, even if it means opening a window six inches despite chilly outdoor temperatures.Hanage said he understands that “pandemic fatigue” is real and acknowledged that he’s felt it himself. But he said that people don’t have to dread a future of lockdowns if they accept that this once-in-a-century event can be managed using less-stringent steps, like masking and distancing, applied universally, to keep cases low and avoid straining the health system capacity.“We have a long winter ahead of us and I’m not going to say it’s going to be fun,” Hanage said.last_img read more

first_imgTaylor Velasquez was the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car winner Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park. (Photo by Lonnie Wheatley)By Lonnie WheatleyDODGE CITY, Kan. (May 26) – Just one weekend removed from a wild heat race flip, Taylor Velasquez bounced right back to win Saturday’s 25-lap United Rebel Sprint Series vs. Precise Racing Products Sprint Car Clash main event at Dodge City Raceway Park.Velasquez put his IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car out front at the outset from the pole position and capitalized on a lap 20 caution that negated a Jake Martens pass for the lead to secure the win.Given a reprieve, Velasquez burst out to a lead of several car lengths as the race restarted, but Martens closed back in and tried to slip under in the final pair of corners only to fall two car-lengths short at the stripe.“This week has been blood, sweat and tears,” Velasquez explained.  “I wasn’t really sure how I’d feel tonight.  Getting through the heat race was the most important part of the night. After that, I got a lot more comfortable in the car.”Gunning into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Velasquez gradually slipped away from opening night winner Brian Herbert and Martens in the early going.  Martens made his way past Herbert for second on the 15th round and erased Velasquez’ advantage in short order then raced into the lead on the low side only to have the race’s only caution appear to put Velasquez back out front.Martens settled for second with Herbert claiming the show position.  Zach Blurton crossed the stripe fourth with Tyler Knight rounding out the top five.Other Saturday night winners included Nick Link in the IMCA Modifieds, Daylon Bergeron in the IMCA SportMods, Shannon Maughlin in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Reagan Sellard in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.Feature results – 1.

Round-up: Groves returns, Bamford move, QPR agree fee, Dembele move close

first_imgChelsea and QPR continue to be active in the transfer market and George Groves is on course for another world title shot after returning to action with a convincing victory.Chelsea have confirmed the signing of American defender Matt Miazga from New York Red Bulls, while Blues striker Patrick Bamford has joined Norwich on loan for the rest of the season.The Blues’ Under-18 side lost to Reading on Saturday afternoon – their first defeat in 16 matches.QPR have agreed a fee with Burton for Nasser El Khayati.

Field work wrapping up for 2016 Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Jeremy Goyings, Paulding Co.We are down to the last 80 acres for strip-till. It seems like the later we go the nicer it gets. We’ve got some gorgeous strips we have made in the last week or so. The nice weather is making us want to do more work. I think we are going to throw the tile wheel back on the tractor and try to take advantage of some more nice weather. It looks like it may turn cold but we’ll stay dry so we could maybe get in another 40 or 80 acres of tile. We’ll also do a little bit of touching up on some corn stalks if we have fields that are rough from recent tile projects to level things with some light tillage.We sprayed the majority of our acres in the fall this year. We are moving more towards that. We haven’t been getting the good control with perennials by just spraying in the spring. We did the majority of our bean stubble and wheat stubble acres with either Roundup or Roundup and Brash to try and tackle some thistle and some dandelion issues to keep them at bay. It seems hard to kill those in the spring.We stick to a pretty locked-in rotation and don’t let the market dictate us. We try not to adjust the rotation based on markets because by the time you harvest it, the markets may have moved the other way on you anyway.We have locked in some basis for spring delivery but we have done very little locking in of actual price. We will probably do the majority of that from February to May on our 2016 production.I am kind of ready for snow so I can call it a year.For the rest of this week’s reports click here.last_img read more
