Paradigma Ariadné is an architectural studio independent of styles and trends, where the architectural product always contextualizes in some way. Usually, this contextualization creates the extra content which makes our studio’s plans unique, be it a house, furniture, or urban planning. The Slanted House connected to this very characteristics of our studio to both, as its statement and its connection to the landscape are apparent in a way that at the same time it also tries to refer to and interpret its theoretical context: critical regionalism.Save this picture!© Attila Róbert CsókaSave this picture!DrawingSave this picture!© Attila Róbert CsókaKenneth Frampton’s 1983 essay, ‘Towards a Critical Regionalism: Six Points for an Architecture of Resistance’, published in the architectural periodical of Yale University, Perspecta, stood sharply against the universality characterising the late modern permeating architecture at the time, and the post-modern’s response to it. After 40 years some things are still valid relating to critical regionalism even without the historical context: the acceptance of the features of the land and the landscape, acclaiming the tectonic logic inherent in the structure, and consequently.Save this picture!© Attila Róbert CsókaThe close connection among the building’s visual appearance, structure and building material. The concept of the Slanted House poses one question to this critical regionalist interpretation framework: Can a house respect the landscape by domesticizing it? Human existence has intertwined with horizontality. Even if a house looks slanted from the outside, in the inside it consists entirely, or partly, with the help of smaller or larger stairs, of horizontal surfaces so that it can be possible to sit, sleep and work in the house.Save this picture!DrawingThis is the domestication that buildings born in the light of critical regionalism themselves could not leave behind. In contrast, in the Slanted House, the landscape dominates totally, both the structure of the house and man at the same time, regardless of whether a particular person is the builder or user of the house, thus, with this, the building also joins the non-human-centered approaches that permeate contemporary philosophical debates. However, if we interpret Kenneth Frampton strictly, it is not really possible to decide whether the Slanted House could be part of the architecture he prioritises or not. Because of the logical connection elaborated above, its slant creates a connection to the landscape with naive sensitivity, while upon entry it gives visitors a pleasure that makes them smile, which could also stem from the hidden irony that takes the landscape extremely seriously.Save this picture!© Attila Róbert CsókaSave this picture!DrawingSave this picture!© Attila Róbert CsókaAnd if something was distinctly away from Frampton’s Marxist, resistant interpretation of landscape, it was irony. The Slanted House is thus a building encouraging dispute, which allows many entry thresholds for the visitors and interpreters of the house. It can be a liberating playground for children, which does not need to be capable of anything else than providing a space which one can enthusiastically run across, leaving themselves to the forces of gravity, and at the same time it can be a manifestation of that particular 1983 Perspecta publication, stirring up a dispute. At Paradigma Ariadné, we believe that the latter approach is the key to an architecture that provides everyday experiences.

Bright Future for Ag Students at Purdue

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Bright Future for Ag Students at Purdue Previous articlePurdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry An Experience for AllNext articleIndiana Weather Forecast 2/9/2015 Andy Eubank SHARE Bright Future for Ag Students at Purdue Good prospects for ag gradsThe 2015 Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry is in the books. The annual gathering of Boilermaker faithful from the College of Ag was held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Saturday, and Dean of Agriculture Jay Akridge said it’s like a big family get together.“I think it’s just a great day to celebrate the College and all of our alumni to get back together to share stories with their friends and put a big spotlight on everything we’re trying to do in the College. It’s just turned into I think a wonderful homecoming for the alumni.”He told HAT the alumni ranks will grow further with about 600 students expected to graduate this spring and employment prospects look for those graduates. He said 85 companies will be at the spring career fair Wednesday, up twenty from last year. And for young people thinking about a college major and future career, no matter their background, Akridge explains agriculture is a great choice.“I think most just don’t understand the breadth of opportunities we see under this umbrella we call agriculture. If a young man or woman is interested in science, we have opportunities to take that into the food and the plants and the animal space. If they’re interested in business, they can take it into the food or inputs world. Farming of course is an opportunity, but even policy, regulatory areas, communications, education, it’s just such a broad area. It’s an industry that’s alive and vibrant and there are just a lot of opportunities for any young man or woman who really wants to make a difference with their life.”Many of the students studying for a career in agriculture do not come from the farm or even rural areas.“About half of our students come to us with really no rural or rural farm background, so they’re coming to us with urban, suburban and only about half are involved in 4-H and FFA,” Akridge explained. “So we’ve got a great group that come to us from more traditional areas, but about half come to us from very different backgrounds.”He told the alumni that the College is now looking for more students interested in plant sciences and agriculture education.This is a strategic planning year for the College. Dean Akridge explains the importance of that process in the HAT video. SHARE By Andy Eubank – Feb 9, 2015 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Spokesman: Carson Was Not Offered HUD Secretary Job

Later on Wednesday, Reuters reported Williams as saying that Carson had never been offered the HUD job.Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he was “seriously considering” the 65-year-old Carson to lead HUD. The announcement was surprising to many because Carson has no experience with serving in government or with housing policy.Carson stated earlier in November that he was not interested in serving in the Trump Administration. He seemed to have a change of heart after meeting with key members of Trump’s Administration, however.“After serious discussions with the Trump transition team, I feel that I can make a significant contribution particularly to making our inner cities great for everyone,” Carson said on his Facebook page.Following Trump’s tweet on Tuesday, Carson gave an interview on Fox News in which he confirmed that the HUD position was “one of the offers on the table.”Carson has spoken out about housing policy in the recent past; in 2015, he wrote an editorial for the Washington Times criticizing the Obama Administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule, which passed in 2015.Having been raised in the inner city of Detroit, Carson is passionate about revitalizing the inner cities. In the Fox News interview on Tuesday, he told Neil Cavuto, “You know, there have been so many promises made over the last several decades, and nothing has been done. So it certainly is something that has been a long-term interest of mine. And I’ll be thinking and praying about it seriously.”Current HUD Secretary Julián Castro, an Obama appointee, has held that position since July 2014.  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Spokesman: Carson Was Not Offered HUD Secretary Job Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Tagged with: Ben Carson HUD Secretary Previous: What’s Driving Innovations in Real Estate Auctions?

Update: Mortgage Delinquency Trends

first_img About Author: Phil Hall Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Update: Mortgage Delinquency Trends  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago An estimated 4.1 million homeowners were in active COVID-19 forbearance plans as of July 21, according to new data from Black Knight Inc. This represents 7.8% of all active mortgages.The Black Knight report also provided updates on affordability and refi trends.New forbearance plans averaged 78,000 per week during the first three weeks of July, Black Knight noted, a decline from the 81,300 weekly average one month earlier. Active forbearances dropped by 435,000 during the first week of July, followed by an aggregate 25,000 over the next two weeks.As of July 21, 1.6 million households—or, 28% of homeowners—had exited a COVID-19-related forbearance plan. Of that group, Black Knight found that 3% paid off their mortgage, 21% had their forbearance removed or expired and remained current on mortgage payments and 4% had their plan removed or expired but remained past due on their mortgage. Of the remaining loans still on active forbearance plans, 2.6 million have had the term of their plan extended, while 1.5 million are still in their initial term.Nearly 2.5 million active forbearance plans were set to expire within June and another 1.3 million were scheduled to expire in July. However, Black Knight determined that roughly 1.8 million forbearance extensions have taken place over the last four weeks while an additional 890,000 loans were removed from forbearance. The majority of the forbearance extensions covered an extra three months, which means nearly 2.2 million active forbearance plans are set to expire in September.Separately, Black Knight reported the national delinquency rate fell in June for the first time since January, with approximately 7.6% of all mortgage holders in a delinquent state. In January, that share was a record-low 3.2%. Also during June, the number of early-stage delinquencies stabilized, with 30-day delinquencies nearly back to their pre-COVID levels. However, the number of borrowers 90 or more days past due was 1.87 million, the largest volume since 2011, and Black Knight predicted that the number of 90-day delinquencies could increase into July.Additionally, Black Knight reported that last month’s record-breaking low mortgage rates contributed to creating the most affordable average-priced homes since 2016.Buying power for homebuyers increased 10% from last year, Black Knight noted, adding that shoppers can now afford roughly $32,000 more home than one year earlier while keeping their monthly payment the same.“As of mid-July, it required 19.8% of the median monthly income to make the mortgage payment on the average-priced home purchase, assuming a 20% down payment and a 30-year mortgage,” said Black Knight Data & Analytics President Ben Graboske. “That was more than 5% below the average of 25% from 1995-2003. This means it currently requires a $1,071 monthly payment to purchase the average-priced home, which is down 6% from the same time last year, despite the average home increasing in value by more than $12,000 during that same time period.”Graboske added that while “record levels of job losses are certainly still weighing on the housing market and broader economy, for those shopping for a home now, buying power has clearly trended up.”In six states—Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, and West Virginia—payment-to-income ratios are at their lowest levels in more than a quarter-century. Black Knight also noted that the nation’s 25 largest markets are seeing their strongest affordability in more than two years, while some markets areas are enjoying their strongest affordability levels in well over a decade.Homebuyers are not the only ones profiting from this environment. Black Knight determined that the historically low 30-year-rates incentivized a record 18.1 million homeowners to refinance last month.

FIRST LADIES: Former first lady of Costa Rica visits Troy

first_img Ferrer had condemned the corruption and communist influences in the sitting Costa Rican government and was arrested and imprisoned. He and his wife, Henrietta, were forced into exile in Mexico only to return two years later with plans for a revolt. Ferrer led the successful revolution. When it ended, he became Costa Rica’s president and is hailed as the Father of Democracy in Latin America.But MacGuire was not at Troy University to talk about the revolution and the role she played. She wasn’t at the university to talk about her world travels or how it was that she came back in Alabama. She wasn’t there to talk about her dedication to volunteerism or her “office” at the River Region Living magazine. The Former First Lady of Costa Rica was at Troy University to have lunch with her friends, Jack and Janice Hawkins, the Chancellor of Troy University and his First Lady, and to tour the Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Art Center.“The dates worked out so that we could get together and Jack and I were excited to have lunch with Henrietta and for her to visit the park and the art center,” Hawkins said She added that MacGuire has traveled the world and has seen many of the great works of art. The invitation to visit Troy University was an opportunity for her to see the university’s international education efforts through the arts including the 200 replica terracotta warriors by artist Huo Bao Zhu and the Warriors Unearthed interpretive center by artist Frank Marquette. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Former First Lady of Costa Rica Henrietta Boggs MacGuire was the guest of First Lady of Troy University Janice Hawkins. The “First Ladies” enjoyed lunch with Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. and toured Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and the International Arts Center, which MacGuire found “remarkable.”Former First Lady of Costa Rica Henrietta Boggs MacGuire was the honored guest of First Lady of Troy University Janice Hawkins last week but there was little reason for formality between the two ladies. Although they have led very different lives, their like interests in history, the arts and travel have forged a bond of friendship between the two “First Ladies.”Their lives came together through a shared friendship with Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange and Troy University’s networking with a university in Costa Rica. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration However, the connections between the two First Ladies were all too brief.“We would see each other only a couple of times a year and would always say, ‘let’s have lunch,’ but never seemed to have the opportunity,” Hawkins said. MacGuire, a resident of Montgomery, is originally from South Carolina but studied at Birmingham Southern College in the late 1930s. While visiting her aunt and uncle in Costa Rica, McGuire met, fell in love with and married Jose “Don Pepe” Figueres Ferrer, who helped install democracy in his homeland in 1948.

Magmatic and tectonic patterns over the Northern Victoria Land sector of the Transantarctic Mountains from new aeromagnetic imaging

first_imgNew aeromagnetic data image the extent and spatial distribution of Cenozoic magmatism and older basement features over the Admiralty Block of the Transantarctic Mountains. Digital enhancement techniques image magmatic and tectonic features spanning in age front the Cambrian to the Neogene. Magnetic lineaments trace major fault zones, including NNW to NNE trending transtensional fault systems that appear to control the emplacement of Neogene age McMurdo volcanics. These faults represent splays front a major NW-SE oriented Cenozoic strike-slip fault belt, which reactivated the inherited early Paleozoic structural architecture. NE-SW oriented magnetic lineaments are also typical of the Admiralty Block and reflect post-Miocene age extensional faults. To re-investigate controversial relationships between strike-slip faulting, rifting, and Cenozoic magmatism, we combined the new aeromagnetic data with previous datasets over the Transantarctic Mountains and Ross Sea Rift. Two key observations can be made from Our aeromagnetic compilation: I) Cenozoic alkaline intrusions along the margin of the Ross Sea Rift lie oblique to the NW-SE strike-slip faults and are not significantly displaced by them; 2) the Southern Cross and the Admiralty Blocks are Much more significantly affected by Cenozoic magmatism compared to the adjacent tectonic blocks, thereby indicating major tectono-magmatic segmentation of the Transantarctic Mountains rift flank. We put forward three alternative tectonic models to explain the puzzling observation that major Cenozoic alkaline intrusions emplaced along the Ross Sea Rift margin show no evidence for major strike-slip displacement. Our first model predicts that the alkaline intrusions were emplaced along left-lateral cross-faults, which accommodated distributed right-lateral shearing. In contrast, our second model does not require major distributed strike-slip shearing, and relates the emplacement of Cenozoic alkaline intrusions to sea-floor spreading in the Adare Basin, Coupled with intracontinental transfer faulting. The third model is all attempt to reconcile the two opposing hypothesis and relies oil a recent inference, which postulates that opening of the Adare Basin relates to fault splaying front the Balleny strike-slip fault zone. A low seismic velocity anomaly in the upper mantle appears to extend from the Ross Sea Rift Under the Admiralty and Southern Cross Blocks of the Transantarctic Mountains. Lateral flow of [lot upper mantle from the rifted region to the rift flank may explain the observed tectono-magmatic segmentation of the Transantarctic Mountains. We infer that this process caused a regional upwarp of the Curie isotherm under the Admiralty and Southern Cross Blocks of the Transantarctic Mountains, and facilitated extensional faulting, renewed uplift, and volcanism in the Neogene.
