This urban residence is located in a residential district in downtown Sendai. Constructed out of wood without the use of any pilotis or other supporting structures, the building features an upper floor that protrudes dramatically outward in order to ensure adequate parking space for two cars on a lot with restricted frontage.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreThe size of the windows and other openings on the closed facade of the building have been kept to an absolute minimum as a precaution against crime, as well as a privacy feature. In contrast, the interior of the house, which centers on the internal courtyard, is an open, generous and well-lit expanse of space.The first floor houses several small, comfortable private spaces, such as a bedroom and audio room. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe second floor has been conceived as a single, continuous space filled with natural light, allowing unobstructed lines of sight and free-flowing ventilation. The tatami-floored living room enjoys the “borrowed landscape” (shakkei) of maple trees in the courtyard, creating a tranquil atmosphere that allows the inhabitants to forget the fact that they are in the city.

The louvers also serve to obstruct lines of sight into the house from the outside while allowing the residents clear, unobstructed views of the exterior from inside the building. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe children’s room that straddles the central courtyard was designed in such a way as to separate it from the “womb” of the main building. The variety of scenery provided by each of these spaces is a particular perk of living in urban residences located in the heart of the city. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe notion of the urban residential building can no longer be confined just to Tokyo: it has now become firmly established as a sensible, intelligent concept that can be applied to all cities. For modern urbanites, the lifestyles resulting from these small spaces offer them a more comfortable living environment than residences that are larger than necessary.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture City Guide: DenverArticlesUpdate: High Line 23 / Neil M.

first_imgAn emergency rule signed today by the DNR, filed with the Natural Resources Commission and the Legislative Services Agency, states the following:“Rifle cartridges that were allowed in previous years on public land for deer hunting are allowed on public land again this year during the deer firearms season, the reduction zone season (in zones where local ordinances allow the use of a firearm), special hunts on other public lands such as State Parks and National Wildlife Refuges, and special antlerless season.This means that the rifle cartridge must fire a bullet of .357-inch diameter or larger, have a minimum case length of 1.16 inches, and have a maximum case length of 1.8 inches if used on public land. Full metal jacketed bullets are illegal.”For more information on rifle requirements for deer hunting on private land, visit and click on “Equipment.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgMap of the Week: The 57,000+ Wind Turbines in the U.S. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Washington Post:California’s Kern County, home to the city of Bakersfield, bills itself as the “Wind Capital of the West.” But a Washington Post analysis of a massive new U.S. Geological Survey database of over 57,000 commercial wind turbines suggests that the county is being overly modest: It is, in fact, the wind capital of the entire country.To create the database, the USGS partnered with the Department of Energy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the American Wind Energy Association. The organizations merged their individual data sets to create a new database that was more accurate and comprehensive than previous efforts. Once they compiled the new database, researchers attempted to visually verify the precise location of each turbine using satellite imagery. They intend to update it periodically in the coming years as the wind industry grows.The database shows that Kern County is home to some 4,581 wind turbines with a total power-generating capacity of somewhere north of 4,000 megawatts, giving Kern the largest county-level concentration of wind capacity in the nation. Put another way, there are more turbines in Kern County alone than in the entire Northeast region of the United States.California can also boast the No. 2 and No. 3 counties in the nation when it comes to turbine density: Riverside, home to the San Gorgonio Pass wind farm, and Alameda, where the Altamont Pass wind farm is located. Texas’ Nolan County and Oregon’s Gilliam County round out the top five.At the other end of the spectrum, 2,501 counties are tied for dead last, with no commercial wind energy to speak of. There are a number of reasons for this, one of which is simple geography. There’s a lot of variation in average annual wind speeds in the U.S…. The southeast, in particular, is virtually a wind desert relative to the rest of the country. As a result, there are hardly any commercial wind projects to be found in the region.More: Every One Of America’s 57,636 Wind Turbines, Mappedlast_img read more

first_img“We need to put many of the crimes back on the books,” Akshar said. “That would allow judges to set bail like criminally negligent homicide [and] vehicular assault,” he said. Akshar also says he will be proposing legislation that would tighten the screws on repeat offenders. “The whole point of bail reform is to make the system more equitable but clearly people have expressed some concerns about unintended consequences,” Lupardo said. “If you’ve been convicted of a felony in the preceding ten years you would not be subject to this reform,” said Akshar. “Clearly you have posed a threat to public safety, you’ve posed a threat to the community in which you live,” Akshar said. Lupardo says while she hears those concerns, Judges do have options if they feel an accused individual does not belong back on the streets. She says that judges have the ability to send individuals to jail if they violate an order of protection or are alleged to have intimidated a victim or witness. “There is a feeling that we need to revisit the types of crimes that are eligible for bail in the first place and for judges to be able to assess flight risk,” Lupardo said. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As lawmakers return to Albany on Wednesday, the issue of bail reform is still a major topic of conversation. The Bail Reform Law went into effect on Jan. 1. “They do have lots of options including keeping people in jail in lieu of bail and also the ability to put people on house arrest,” Lupardo said. State Senator Akshar says that many of the crimes covered by the bill need to be knocked off the list. “I take some satisfaction in knowing that the Democrats are now feeling the pressure from people across the state,” said State Senator Fred Akshar. “Whether they’re in Brooklyn, Buffalo or anywhere in between they know they need to make changes,” Akshar said. Assemblywoman Lupardo told 12 News that this is something that lawmakers will be looking into. “Those are some of the things we’re going to be talking about when we get back to Albany tomorrow,” she said. Something that Democratic Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo says she hears loud and clear. last_img read more

first_imgJosh Smith began to play around with the idea and got the rest of the engineering team involved. Raymond is manufacturing 2,000 of these face sheild kits, and will donate them to Hospitals in the Binghamton area, Norwich and even select nursing homes. The company has already distributed 1,000 of face shields. Raymond then fired up three of their 3D printers and, using 3D filament, began to print and assemble face shield kits. GREENE (WBNG) — The Raymond Corporation fired up a few of their 3D printers and have started to print face shields for health care workers and nursing home workers. The idea started from an Engineer Josh Smith, his mother, who is a nursing professor at SUNY Morrisville, asked if Raymond could print face shields for her. “We had 3 different printers we could fire up all at once, taking some simple spools of plastic 3D filament and producing these things, the actual mask itself the face shield part is food grade plastic sheeting, it ends up being a pretty simple thing, you can see what it looks like, its nothing complicated,” said Michael Field, the President and CEO of the Raymond Corporation.last_img read more
