Getting closer to Maku, where this house is located in, you are faced with a winding road trapped in a narrow valley including a river within and the city view surprisingly appears as you pass a crescent. Bare soaring mountains embrace this historical border city and include one of the most huge and unique roof of climbing crags in Iran. There is a castle close to the wall and the wall is above 100 meters high. Some Buildings have been constructed on the mountain slopes in different historical eras and it seems that contemporary buildings have grown chaotically.Save this picture!DiagramThis mysterious city including forgotten values like city view and architectural aesthetics, is a context where we have been designing and constructing some buildings in the past 5 years.

So we initiated composing some cubes oriented to potential views with the ideas of capturing daylight, allowing natural ventilation and utilizing vernacular materials. We could emphasize shades of subtracted and added volumes by using two materials with high contrast. The concept of façade design was continued in interior spaces that resulted in a variety of open spaces and spatial qualities.Save this picture!SectionThe project is not only a house in a distant border city, but also a focal point to improve public taste and to reform the city viewSave this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiProject gallerySee allShow lessCafé Loge / The Cornerz + Kode ArchitectsSelected ProjectsOrchard House / DADA PartnersSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  900 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Lead Architects: House NO.20; Order in Chaos / White Cube AtelierSave this projectSaveHouse NO.20; Order in Chaos / White Cube Atelier Save this picture!© Farshid Nasrabadi+ 27Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyHouses, House Interiors•Iran Photographs Houses Reza Asadzade, Shabnam Khalilpour CopyAbout this officeWhite Cube AtelierOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsIranPublished on October 05, 2018Cite: “House NO.20; Order in Chaos / White Cube Atelier” 05 Oct 2018.

Larry Kramer, 1935-2020: An appreciation

first_imgI joined ACT-UP/NY soon after it formed, in the spring of 1987. Thirty-three years later, I still have vivid memories of the weekly meetings, which crackled with the electric energy of hundreds of angry people jammed into the first-floor meeting room in the LGBTQ Center in Manhattan.Larry KramerMany, probably most, had not been political activists before the AIDS crisis erupted. Now, as they orated, debated, strategized in that rundown old building on West 13th Street, they were creating a new movement, one that would make history and save lives. The task was enormous: to force the government, the ruling class, the medical establishment, the pharmaceutical industry to take real action to combat AIDS.Tens of thousands were dying. Most were gay men and people of color. By 1987 the AIDS epidemic had been raging in these communities for years. The poorest, those with least access to medical care, were falling fastest. People were attending funerals, scratching names out of address books, trying to go on, to stay alive, with no hope of support or aid from any official source.There were no effective treatments. There was no nationally coordinated public health effort to educate people about methods to prevent the spread of HIV. The president, Ronald Reagan, had never once spoken the word AIDS in public.Meanwhile, anti-gay and racist violence was on the rise as reactionary forces whipped up fear and scapegoating campaigns.This was the juncture when Larry Kramer stepped up and started the movement that would change everything.Movements are made up of many people. Mass struggle is just that, a mass undertaking, and no one individual can accomplish everything. Still, leadership is decisive. And Larry Kramer was the leader we needed at the height of the AIDS crisis.A few years earlier, as AIDS emerged as a deadly threat, Larry had been one of the founders of Gay Men’s Health Crisis. GMHC developed into a community service organization — vital, but not, Larry saw, sufficient. Something else was needed: a fight. A real, bare-knuckles, no-holds-barred fight had to be waged.And so Larry Kramer, along with a few others, founded the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power.It quickly developed and grew. Taking lessons from the Civil Rights Movement, the anti-war movement and of course the LGBTQ2+ movement, the young organizers who soon assumed leadership fashioned ACT UP into a street-fighting powerhouse.ACT UP/NY’s first big action took place March 24, 1987. Hundreds poured onto lower Broadway in the early morning hours, targeting big business as the culprit for AIDS-based discrimination and the failure to develop and fund affordable AIDS treatment drugs.The call to action proclaimed: “No More Business As Usual!” The goal: to shut down Wall Street.We did just that. I was one of over 100 people arrested at the Wall Street action that morning. While cops dragged us off, hundreds more stayed, chanting the newly minted and now famous ACT UP slogan: “Act up! Fight back! Fight AIDS!”In the months and years following, the AIDS activist movement would carry out many militant actions. They barricaded and sat in at pharmaceutical company headquarters. They crashed medical conferences and corporate board meetings. They disrupted reactionary religious events. They demanded attention, and action, and eventually they won real change.Rage at oppressionSo who was Larry Kramer? He was first and foremost a gay man. His bitter, painful experience of gay oppression drove everything he did. His rage, his furious, passionate rage at heterosexism, homophobia, LGBTQ2+ oppression was endless and profound, and it helped give rise to a great social movement.He was an artist, a brilliant novelist and playwright, though, as Tony Kushner noted in a May 29 New York Times article, Kramer “sacrificed for the sake of his unceasing activism some of what he might have accomplished artistically.”Larry was a Jewish child of the Depression. Later in life he was comfortable financially. He was never a revolutionary. But he always considered himself an outsider, an “other” in this society that he excoriated in his work, literary and political. He was a radical, and a true militant.In ACT UP meetings I knew Larry only as an angry speaker, up in the front of that first-floor room at the center. I usually sat near the back, which his fiery energy easily reached. Friends tell of a different Larry up close and personal, a sweet, kind, loving soul.I got to witness that sweet side a few years before he died. After not seeing Larry in person for decades, I ran into him at a deli one afternoon in the Village. I knew he’d weathered several major illnesses; he seemed bent and frail. I said hi and introduced myself as someone who’d been in ACT UP in the early years. He perked up, straightening his spine, giving me the widest, warmest smile, and reached in for a hug. For some reason we both got a little teary-eyed. We chatted a bit, then said goodbye.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A survey would have to be conducted to determine whether at least 50 percent of the residents of the areas are low to moderate income, which is a requirement for the grant.Following the public hearing, the County Commission went into its regular meeting with new and current business on the agenda.
