Photographs: Yuri PALMINText description provided by the architects. This house was designed for a young couple with a child. Their only wish was to have a contemporary piece of architecture. The site is situated not far from Moscow to the west. The house is positioned on the top of a hill surrounded by pine trees. The site has three directions with beautiful views, only the north view is worse, so the architects decided to close it off. This provoked the idea of folded plane, which is lifted a little above the ground and forms the space of the house. It creates a variety of inner and outer spaces which serve usual dwelling functions.Save this picture!sectionRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEARenders / 3D AnimationEnscape3D Real-Time Rendering SoftwareEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornAt the same time the building is open to the sunlight, with windows throughout oriented towards natural light. You can feel the structure of folding in the house because of the open space plan where public zones flow into private areas and vice-versa. There is no difference in cladding of the outside and the inside. If you see wood in the exterior you can be sure that this place in the interior is made in the same material. Some of the windows, for example in the bathroom, are made as the cuts in folded plane as it helps to see its form, so there are glued glass angles. The Architects specially worked on the issue of thickness of this plane to make it elegant and functional at the same time, as the cantilever of the roof above the terraces is about five meters long.Save this picture!© Yuri PALMINThe folded theme also became a style of the site, so all services looks like the main building. There is a car shed and a Russian bath. The last building is partly hidden in the landscape, so the roof of it works as an observation platform. In winter time it became a skating-rink.Save this picture!© Yuri PALMINProject gallerySee allShow lessWinning Entry for Design Matters 2 Ideas Competition / Ali MusaviArticlesNo.8 Wire Residential Residence / Jonathan GibbArticles Share Gorki House / Atrium StudioSave this projectSaveGorki House / Atrium Studio ArchDaily Korea, Republic of Gorki House / Atrium Studio ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/137491/gorki-house-atrium Clipboard Year: CopyAbout this officeAtrium StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasMoscowHouses3D ModelingRussiaPublished on May 29, 2011Cite: “Gorki House / Atrium Studio” 29 May 2011.

By the hundreds and thousands, Haitian workers marched and protested from Dec. 9 to Dec. 12, demanding that the Supreme Council on Wages (CSS) raise the minimum wage to 500 gourdes a day, which is about $11.Big protests took place in Port-au-Prince and smaller ones in Ouanaminthe, a processing center on the border with the Dominican Republic, and Caracol, a new south-Korean owned industrial park in northeast Haiti. These are the major textile centers in Haiti.The current minimum wage for a day’s work ranges from $1.55 to $4.45 in factories. The CSS decided to raise the top minimum wage for a day’s work to 225 gourdes, around $5.Radio Kiskeya posted a video on YouTube on Dec. 10 showing thousands of workers — many of them women — marching and dancing through the streets of Port-au-Prince, waving green branches and demanding 500 gourdes. One of the leaders of the protest, who said he was on the executive committee of one of the unions involved in the march, told Kiskeya that he couldn’t feed himself and his family three meals a day on 225 gourdes.He would need at least 500.Beyond the low minimum wage paid in Haiti, employers routinely cheat workers out of the pay they deserve under the current laws.The Workers Rights Council, in an October report, quotes a study from the International Labor Organization and International Finance Corporation establishing “that every single one of the country’s 24 export garment factories was illegally cheating workers of pay by failing to comply with the country’s legal minimum wage.” The ILO is a United Nations agency, and the IFC is a World Bank group dedicated to finding “private sector solutions for development.”The WRC calculates, based on ILO/IFC data, that 32 percent of the hours legally due to Haitian workers, particularly textile workers, are stolen by their employers. The WRC then goes on to detail the hugely deleterious effects this wage theft has on workers’ nutrition, health, education and housing.In a podcast released Dec. 14, Yannic Ettienne of Batay Ouvriye, a workers’ support group in Haiti, said that employers had fired or suspended a number of workers who had participated in the strikes and protests during the week of Dec. 9. This act of retaliation denies the fired workers their customary year-end vacation. BO has undertaken a campaign to get their jobs back.The fact that the minimum wage in Haiti for a day’s work is much less than the minimum wage in the U.S. for an hour’s work is a highly profitable reason for greedy corporations to move any job possible there.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Branch Manager Mahindra Finance Sultanpur & Another, observed that writ of Mandamus cannot be issued to a private body, Mahindra and it does not comes under the ambit of Article 12 of the Constitution. Petitioners submission The Petitioner in this case had prayed before the court to issue a writ of Mandamus directing Mahindra Finance to provide the complete statement of Customer ID number with the concerned due amount which was left over with an additional prayer to direct the respondents to collect the concerned amount in partial/easy installments The court had previously inquired the counsel for petitioner about whether a writ against Private Bank is maintainable or not. To which the Petitioner while submitting that writ against Private bank is maintainable relied of various judgements: Andi Mukta Sadguru Shree Muktajee Vandas Swami Suvarna Jayanti Mahotsav Smarak Trust and others Vs. V.R. Rudani and others : (1989) 2 SCC 691 Manager, ICICI Bank Ltd. Vs. Prakash Kaur & others, decided on 26.02.2007 (Appeal (Crl.) No. 267 of 2007) Courts observations The Court while rejecting the contentions of the Petitioner, referred to Federal Bank Ltd. Vs. Sagar Thomas & Ors and considered the scope of issuing Writ under Article 226 of the Indian Constitution. The court observed: “The Apex Court in Federal Bank Ltd. Vs. Sagar Thomas & Ors, (2003) 10 SCC 733, considered the scope of issuance of writ under Article 226 of the Constitution against a private Bank. Following was laid down in paras 27 and 33: “27.Such private companies would normally not be amenable to the writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution. But in certain circumstances a writ may issue to such private bodies or persons as there may be statutes which need to be complied with by all concerned including the private companies. For example, there are certain legislations like the Industrial Disputes Act, the Minimum Wages Act, the Factories Act or for maintaining proper environment say Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 or Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 etc. or statutes of the like nature which fasten certain duties and responsibilities statutorily upon such private bodies which they are bound to comply with. If they violate such a statutory provision a writ would certainly be issued for compliance of those provisions.For the discussion held above, in our view, a private company carrying on banking business as a scheduled bank, cannot be termed as an institution or company carrying on any statutory or public duty. A private body or a person may be amenable to writ jurisdiction only where it may become necessary to compel such body or association to enforce any statutory obligations or such obligations of public nature casting positive obligation upon it. We don’t find such conditions are fulfilled in respect of a private company carrying on a commercial activity of banking.” Cited judgements not applicable to this case The court observed that the two decisions which were placed by the Petitioners have no connection to this case because the facts and circumstances are totally different. Accordingly it observed that at this juncture no such relief can be sought and Writ of mandamus cannot be issued to Private bank accordingly: “It is not the case of the petitioner that the Mahindra Finance is an authority within the meaning of Article 12 of the Constitution, nor it is alleged that there is any violation of any statutory provisions in the present case. In view of the above, we are of the view that no grounds have been made out to issue any mandamus to a purely private body, namely, Mahindra Finance in the facts of the present case.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Story

Technology could lead to lower carbon emissions, offers a catalytic alternative to steam cracking Linde and Shell team up to commercialize lower-carbon technology for ethylene. (Credit: Linde) Linde GmbH and Shell today announce an exclusive collaboration agreement on ethane-oxidative dehydrogenation (E-ODH) technology for ethylene production. The catalytic process is an alternative route to ethane steam cracking, offering the potential of economic advantages, acetic acid co-production and significantly lower overall carbon footprint through electrification of power input.The two companies have been developing E-ODH independently for many years and this new collaboration brings together their complementary patent positions, expert know-how and common commitment to a lower-carbon future. The agreement will enable accelerated deployment of this novel technology across the wider chemicals sector, with Linde marketing to customers under the name EDHOX.“With the EDHOX™ process, we have not only developed a cost-efficient alternative but are also providing the petrochemical industry with a low-emission process”, said John van der Velden, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Technology at Linde Engineering.“ For decades, we have been actively developing technologies for more sustainability in this industry – from efficiency improvements to carbon management and new process routes. We are convinced that Linde´s EDHOX technology position will be strengthened by Shell´s intellectual property and know-how in this area.”Thomas Casparie, Executive Vice President of Shell’s global chemicals business, said: “Base chemicals are transformed into a range of finished products that help society live, work and respond to climate change. We look forward to our Shell in-house innovation going on to contribute to the collective reduction of carbon emissions from the manufacture of chemicals. It’s been great to work with Linde on this ambitious and creative combination of technology.” Source: Company Press Release
