The competition required us to adhere to specific restrictions: alignments with the existing urban fabric, the site’s chamfered corner, setbacks for attics, and specific building heights. In the surrounding neighborhood, these constraints have created very monotonous and repetitive buildings that differ from each other merely by the color of brick used in their construction.Save this picture!Courtesy of Iñaqui Carnicero Architecture OfficeIn order to prevent our building from falling victim to the homogeneous surroundings, we took the generic shape that was given as a constraint and used it as a starting point for the design. We capitalized on the corner chamfer, repeating it multiple times on the overall building volume. These chamfers were used not for their representational value, but rather for their performative logic. The chamfered corner first determines the building’s sectional organization, after which the three-meter setbacks are applied to the roof, creating spaces for attics. The building’s faceted surface recalls images of a giant rock, and a series of voids penetrate the facade, altering and determining the location of different rooms within each apartment. On the interior, the sloped planes create attractive double-height spaces: a superior living space when compared to the typical standard apartment. Ultimately, the overall form of the building can be characterized as a series of beveling operations that generate sloped facades which lack a clearly recognizable scale: floor heights, window dimensions, and entrance locations become blurred.Save this picture!Courtesy of Iñaqui Carnicero Architecture OfficeInstead of arranging two symmetrical apartments on either side of a hallway, we proposed a cluster of three living units per access core, thus optimizing the mechanical performance of the building. The intense green color that was used in various areas of the building was inspired by its adjacent neighbor. In doing so, our L-shaped building becomes a defining corner piece that completes and connects the entire perimeter block.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessBeyond the Tent: Why Refugee Camps Need Architects (Now More than Ever)ArticlesPublic School 158 Bayard Taylor Library / A*PT ARCHITECTUREArticlesProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Sports reporter among 5 killed in fiery plane crash in Louisiana, 1 survivor rescued

first_imgiStock(LAFAYETTE, La.) — Five people, including a teenager, were killed when a small plane crashed in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Saturday morning, fire officials said.Six people were on board at the time. Sources told ABC News they were heading to Saturday afternoon’s LSU vs. Oklahoma football game in Atlanta.The two-engine Piper Cheyenne took off from the Lafayette Regional Airport and crashed about a mile away, in a field next to a post office, shortly after 9:20 a.m. local time, Federal Aviation Administration officials said.Those killed in the crash were Ian Biggs, 51; Robert Crisp II, 59; Gretchen Vincent, 51; Michael Vincent, 15; and Carley McCord, 30,McCord was a sports reporter with New Orleans TV station WDSU. Her father-in-law is Louisiana State University’s Offensive Coordinator, Steve Ensminger, according to WDSU-TV.“We are devastated by the loss of such an amazing talent and valued member of our WDSU family,” WDSU President and General Manager, Joel Vilmenay, said in a statement released by the station. “Carley’s passion for sports journalism and her deep knowledge of Louisiana sports, from high school to the professional ranks, made her an exceptional journalist. As we reflect on her impressive body of work, we offer our deepest condolences to her family.”Her fellow WDSU-TV sports reporter, Fletcher Mackel, tweeted, “Smart, funny, hardworking – a friend to everyone. It was impossible not to like Carley McCord. Still trying to process this. Thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Steven, family and friends.The lone survivor on the plane, 37-year-old Stephen Berzas, was taken to a hospital and is in critical condition, city officials said.Three people on the ground were hurt. One person on the ground, near or in a car, was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, officials said.Two people inside the post office were treated for smoke inhalation and “are doing fine,” Lafayette Fire Chief Robert Benoit told reporters.The circumstances surrounding the crash are not yet clear. Witnesses said the plane made contact with power lines and hit the parking lot outside the post office, blowing out the building’s windows, before coming to rest in a field.The crash set the plane and one car on fire, according to the fire department. Both blazes were quickly extinguished, officials said.Investigators with the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board were sent to the accident site.Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards tweeted, “Heartbreaking news out of Lafayette today. Please join @FirstLadyOfLA and I in praying for the families and friends of everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.”This accident in Lafayette is the deadliest civil aviation crash in Louisiana since January 2009 when a helicopter crashed into a marsh, killing eight, according to NTSB records.

3 Ways to Use a Collapsable Reflector for Naturally Lit Shots

first_imgMany filmmakers have issues shooting under natural light, as they often neglect to utilize one of the most basic tools available to them: the collapsable reflector.A collapsable reflector is often thought of as a photographer’s tool, but in many instances they’re just as useful for filmmakers… especially those working with limited budgets. A decent sized, high-quality collapsable reflector typically runs between $50 – $100 and can make a huge difference in the overall production value of a video project.If you’ve been shooting for a substantial amount of time, there’s a good chance you already have one of these in your kit. If not, I highly recommend picking one up and making use of it in the following ways:1. Diffuse the SunImage from zachandjody.comMany reflectors are designed with a reversible sleeve, allowing you to remove it completely and use the white, silk-like disc that sits inside. While you can certainly use it as a bounce under the right lighting conditions, I’ll typically use the disc to diffuse direct sunlight. For instance, if I’m shooting an interview outdoors and the sun is directly overhead, I’ll set up the disc on a stand (or have a PA hold it) to diffuse the harsh sun on the talent’s face.2. Bounce Your BacklightWhen shooting outside, it can be best to use the sun as a backlight in order to avoid harsh shadows on the faces of your actors. That said, in many cases that will result in a back-lit shot and ultimately your talent will be underexposed. Using your reflector on either the white or silver side is a great way to bounce that sunlight back into the face of your actor, effectively bringing up their exposure. The silver side will bounce a harder and brighter light back onto the talent, while the white side will be softer and more forgiving.3. Create a Rim LightSometimes when you shoot outdoors you’ll be able to get away with no lighting or grip gear whatsoever – such as golden hour. In these cases you don’t necessarily need to use your reflector to fix any lighting issues in your shot, but rather use it for a stylistic effect.One of my personal favorite techniques involves placing the reflector behind the talent (and off camera of course) and bouncing the sunlight against the back of their head. This creates a beautiful rim light that emulates the look of a more thoroughly lit scene, even though no lights are being used at all.Have any tips for using a collapsable reflector?
