De Verkenner Tower / Mei architects and planners

first_imgManufacturers: Decomo, Hi-Con, Koninklijke Tichelaar “COPY” Photographs:  Jeroen Musch, Ossip van Duivenbode Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily De Verkenner Tower / Mei architects and planners These mini-stories concern ordinary events and real people. They deal with living together in a house, a building, a neighbourhood or a city in the past, present and future. The ceramic tiles are inserted into the facade elements randomly. As a result, the way you read the lines and connect them to one another is different to a poem where the sequence is fixed. In passing, you can read the lines in isolation, separately from the other tiles. Together they form a varied and exciting composition. Since Dutch politics has restricted project development by housing corporations, De Verkenner is for the present the last construction project with private housing for corporation Mitros. Client Mitros is particularly pleased: it is a wonderful building and all dwellings were rented before completion.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeProject gallerySee allShow lessA Tale of Misplaced Trust in News Media Wins 2018 Fairy Tales CompetitionArchitecture NewsImages Revealed of BIG’s Latest New York City SkyscraperArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Al-Masoedilaan 142, 3526 Utrecht, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Residential tower ‘De Verkenner’ in Utrecht (NL) gives a big impetus to the development of the typical post-war reconstruction district Kanaleneiland. The 50-metre-tall building, with a mixed programme of housing, acts as a gatekeeper to this area. The ‘slow-made’ concrete facade with an incorporated poetry artwork gives a unique identity to the building.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jeroen Musch‘Slow made’ facade gives De Verkenner identityThe design for the facade responds to the concrete gallery-access blocks of flats in Kanaleneiland. In contrast to the horizontal articulation of these facades, the exterior of De Verkenner is predominantly vertical in design. Owing to the high noise levels on Churchilllaan, the facade here is closed in character, but the number of openings increases towards the top. The facade is ‘slow made’ with consciousness regarding local materials and production techniques. The colour harmonizes with the brickwork facades of the new developments on Churchilllaan, but it is constructed of concrete.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeThe brown concrete elements, each two floors tall, feature a surface texture and relief details. This effect is enhanced by the incorporation of 13,000 ceramic tiles, made by Royal Tichelaar Makkum -the oldest company in the Netherlands and world-famous for its ceramics designs. Based on a design by visual artist Milou van Ham in collaboration with poet Tsead Bruinja, these tiles feature 16 different lines of poetry that lend the building an identity specific to the location. Scant attention is usually paid in Kanaleneiland to the finishing of the undersides of balconies and galleries, elements that are clearly visible to passers-by. Mei architects and planners, therefore, extended the facade finish beneath the balconies and galleries. The result is a very inviting building. By contracting the facade separately, Mei succeeded in realizing this unique facade.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeSave this picture!Facade ElementSave this picture!© Jeroen MuschSunny appearanceOn the sunny and noise-free southern side, the building is ‘hollowed out’, so to speak. As many dwellings as possible on this side contain an outdoor space. To allow for optimal daylight penetration, the balconies here are made of ultra-strong concrete just 7 cm thick. From the balconies, some of which cantilever three metres, residents enjoy a wonderful view of Utrecht and surroundings. A huge opening on the tenth floor frames this fantastic view. The materials applied to the inner facade planes contrast starkly with the outer facades, enhancing the plasticity of the building. Railings in yellow glass and champagne-coloured frames mean that, even when the weather isn’t great, De Verkenner still has a sunny and sparkling appearance that radiates throughout the neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeRoses & Concrete ArtworkAs an architecture office, Mei supports the inclusion of art in buildings. For the art project ‘Roses & Concrete’ at De Verkenner – 13,000 ceramic tiles with lines of poetry in the facade – Mei, therefore, commissioned visual artist Milou van Ham. She had previously added a layer to the ‘4 Worlds’ residential building by Mei in Spijkenisse. Here she incorporated hundreds of words that convey the identity of Spijkenisse in the facade and balcony elements. For De Verkenner, Milou worked with poet Tsead Bruinja. The 16 lines of poetry form a poetic reflection on friendships and relations.

Standing on the wrong side of history

first_imgDear Brother John Lewis, I am a Black woman, who, like you, was born in Alabama at the dawn of the modern day Civil Rights Movement. My parents supported the Montgomery Bus Boycott. I, like millions of others, suffered through the indignities of Jim Crow, including watching, as an adolescent, my mother being “escorted” out of a white-only public bathroom by the police.  Monica MooreheadSo I understand firsthand and respect your bravery and your contribution to the Black freedom struggle.I know that half a century ago, you were nearly beaten to death when state troopers and Klansmen attacked the march from Selma to Montgomery. Back then, you faced the reality of racist violence and the possibility of your own death on a daily basis. Back then, you were in the vanguard of the Civil Rights revolution. Nobody can ever take that away from you.With all due respect, however, what you did the other day during the announcement of the Black Congressional Caucus Political Action Committee’s support for the candidacy of Hillary Clinton was counterrevolutionary.The problem isn’t that you didn’t see Bernie Sanders at the 1963 March on Washington or during the freedom rides. The problem is that you are not seeing the millions of young people, especially young Black people and other people of color, who are using the Sanders campaign to send a message to the capitalist political establishment.They are using the Sanders campaign to say they are tired of waiting for justice. They are using the Sanders campaign to say they are sick and tired of young people of color being murdered for the crime of walking, talking, or driving while Black. They are saying they are tired of the police war on Black America, and they are tired of mass incarceration.They are saying they are not willing to support establishment politicians merely because some of us have known them.They are saying they don’t want to be told to stay in their place, to be patient, to be realistic and support the status quo. They are saying they want more than the false promises of incremental change; they demand radical, revolutionary change and they want it NOW.Bernie Sanders refers to himself as a socialist (that’s good because it has people talking about socialism). Actually he’s more of a New Deal liberal.I’m a real socialist, a revolutionary socialist with a capital S. I believe that the Democratic Party is a political prison for the workers and oppressed, because, just like the Republican Party, it is controlled by and serves the interests of capitalism.Frankly, Sanders is not great on racism. He’s said that he opposes reparations for Black people to compensate for the crimes against them dating back to slavery. It’s taken considerable pressure to get Sanders to take the struggle against racism seriously. And he still has a long way to go.But within the narrow confines of the Democratic Party, next to Hillary Clinton, who personifies the political establishment, Sanders looks radical.Sure, Clinton has felt the pressure to give more lip service to fighting racism, sexism, and LGBTQ oppression.But Clinton’s real campaign message is that radical change is unrealistic and she’s the realistic candidate.I’m sure, Brother Lewis, that when you were young, you were on the receiving end of many lectures about the need to be “realistic” and to be “patient.” You remember when older Civil Rights leaders made you tone down your speech at the 1963 march on Washington because they felt it was too militant.You remember your just criticism of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because it did not address the prevalence of racist police brutality. Surely you remember all the times you were told to slow down, cool down, and follow the lead of the older leaders.Indeed, 50 years ago this year, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense was formed in part because old guard Civil Rights leaders were not doing anything to stop police violence against Black people.On the surface, this all seems like a generational struggle, and to some extent, it is. But it’s more than that. It’s a struggle between those who stand with the capitalist establishment and those who demand radical change.I still respect your contribution to our struggle for freedom. But this time, Brother Lewis, sadly, you are standing on the wrong side of history.Respectfully, Monica MooreheadWorkers World Party 2016 presidential candidate FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police officer gunned down outside Mississippi station was planning to retire: Chief

first_imgGulfport Police Department(BILOXI, Miss.) — An on-duty police officer killed in an ambush shooting outside the Biloxi, Mississippi, police headquarters was planning to retire at the end of this year, officials said Monday.Officer Robert McKeithen, a veteran of the Biloxi Police Department, was shot multiple times late Sunday by a suspect who escaped, said Biloxi Police Chief John Miller. The chief spoke at a news conference feet from where his 58-year-old officer was killed in a parking lot outside the Lopez Quave Public Safety Center.“The animal that did this is still on the run, and we’re going to do everything within our power to bring him to justice for Robert and his family, and for the men and women of the Biloxi Police Department and for the citizens of Biloxi,” an emotional Miller said.Gulfport, Mississippi, Police Chief Leonard Papania, whose agency is leading the investigation, said McKeithen was in uniform when the gunman approached him in the parking lot at about 10 p.m. on Sunday and opened fire.Investigators released surveillance photos showing the male suspect, described as thin, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-10, and wearing a black T-shirt, navy shorts and a red skull cap, as well as a video of the suspected shooter casually walking into police headquarters and appearing to smile at an officer in the lobby. A $5,000 reward has been offered by Crime Stoppers for any information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the gunman.The mortally wounded McKeithen was taken to Merit Heath hospital in Biloxi, where he died.Chief Miller said it was not immediately clear if the killer randomly selected McKeithen or if he specifically targeted the officer.“We just don’t know right now,” Miller said.Miller noted that prior to the shooting, the gunman entered the police headquarters, but he declined to say if he made any contact with officers inside the buildingPapania said the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and state and federal law enforcement agencies were also working to help capture the killer.“Most importantly, we need our community to help us on this one,” Papania said. “Anytime you have this kind of deliberate and violent attack on a police officer, especially right in front of a police station, it should cause everybody great concern.”McKeithen joined the Biloxi Police Department in August 1995 and was former member of the U.S. Air Force.“Robert was planning on retiring at the end of the year,” Miller said.He said McKeithen leaves behind a wife, a daughter, two stepsons, and a stepdaughter.“Robert was an unbelievably fine policeman. He did a great job,” Miller said. “He was a wonderful family man. That’s where he spent all of his time, with his family. He was a gentleman for a policeman. He was very gentle. He treated people with respect and dignity and we’re going to miss him sorely.”McKeithen was one of four Biloxi officers awarded a medal of valor for saving the lives of four children with special needs trapped in a flooded residence during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, he said.“That’s the kind of guy he was,” Miller said. “It was a horrible, horrible event that he had to go through, but he went through it anyway and they saved those children who undoubtedly would have perished.”Miller added that the shooting case was turned over to the Gulfport police to investigate because “it’s one of our own people.”“We would prefer that another agency from the outside handle this so it doesn’t appear that we’ve done anything wrong,” Miller said. “Besides that is not healthy for our officers, our investigators to try to investigate something that they’re so close to, a person that they’re so close to.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Why recruitment and retention will be the issues

first_imgWhy recruitment and retention will be the issuesOn 3 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Employers need to take the career aspirations of young people seriouslyIf your organisation is experiencing difficulty attracting and retaining skilled employees, the latest careers research suggests the situation is likely to get worse unless action is taken.Young people’s attitudes to work, careers and learning offers advance warning of impending recruitment issues – assuming current trends continue until the sample group of 1,700 14- and 15-year-olds reaches the job market.The survey, carried out by Roffey Park in conjunction with the Sussex Careers Service, suggests that young people are not tempted by careers in construction, engineering and manufacturing, while “creative” jobs such as interior design and becoming a chef have far greater appeal. The example set by celebrity creative types such as interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen explains these aspirations to some extent. But there is perhaps a more deep-seated shift going on since even some of the more realistic aspirations suggest a move away from traditional employment. Young people expect work to be tough, but they want jobs that will allow their individual flair to shine through. On the other hand, the construction industry, which is already experiencing shortages of skilled recruits, clearly has an image problem since the wide range of creative opportunities available is not getting across.Retention is also likely to become a bigger problem. An issue common to both young people and managers across all sectors is the challenge of achieving work-life balance. While many managers are forced to put up with long working hours and a seemingly endless spill-over of work into personal time, young people are not prepared to put up with this. They expect to do a good day’s work and then be able to do other things. They admire their parents when they are able to achieve this balance. Employers who exploit employees’ good will or anxieties over job security implicitly encourage overwork and should take note.While there are many differences between the views of young people and those of managers, perhaps the attitudes they share give clues to longer-term preferences likely to have an impact. A common theme is their attitude towards teamwork. Employers in all sectors expect employees to operate in teams and achieve the benefits of synergy, but research suggests that teamworking may not come naturally to employees. Young people are surprisingly uninterested in working as part of a team. Similarly, surveys suggest that many high-potential managers tolerate teamworking as a means to an end – to increase their own ability to achieve. If organisations want the best of both worlds, they will need to find creative ways of recognising individual and team achievement. Another clear trend is the recognition that each person is responsible for their own career and that notions of loyalty to a single employer are out of date. Many managers are consciously putting effort into making themselves employable, with a clear implication that they are increasing the options available to them. Interestingly, young people too see the need for ongoing learning in the workplace – and will expect an employer to provide them with development opportunities. Employers who wish to attract and retain the best new recruits will have to think carefully about how they can provide these development opportunities. Of course, the smartest employers are already doing this for existing employees.By Linda Holbeche, director of research at Roffey Park Institute Comments are closed. last_img read more
