The site is located on the mountain side of Hayama where we can enjoy the lush nature and the warmth of the calm local community. In order to make use of the rich environment, intermediate areas such as Doma (earthen floor) and terraces were arranged to connect the space between the ambient environment and the house.Save this picture!© Naoomi KurozumiWe arranged the Doma between the house and the frontal road such that the parking space becomes an integrated front yard. Also we set up a public terrace where the garden in the neighboring area becomes a borrowed landscape. The private terrace makes use of the masonry retaining wall between the north and west sides.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Concept SectionThe floor levels of each terrace are aligned with the interior space. The floor has three levels and its spatial arrangement gradually transitions from public to private. The step was designed as a bench or desk on which people can lie and as a gradual threshold. On the other hand, the roof bows on the ceiling surface are exposed and unify the whole space.Save this picture!© Naoomi KurozumiThis area, where friends and family alike live, was a special place for the client. I felt deeply moved by his memory of this place as a “Terrace in the Town” where friends and family alike would gather.Save this picture!© Naoomi KurozumiAs a result, I designed a house where the Doma and terrace become an intermediate area with the town as a medium to facilitate urban behavior. We strove to create various behaviors such as sitting on the bench of the terrace, looking at the street, lying on the edge of the terrace, spending time at the desk by the kitchen, by yourself or with everyone. Also, the view from the street of the children running around on the terrace over the Doma area is a heartwarming scene.Save this picture!© Naoomi KurozumiOne might call it an urban behavior that neighbors can watch over warmly. I am reminded of Alberti’s words, “The house is like a small city.” I hope that the family and area will slowly overlap and that this architecture will become a mature city.Save this picture!© Naoomi KurozumiProject gallerySee allShow lessSocially-Organized Housing: Biophilia, Connectivity, and SpiritualityArticlesBorden Park Natural Swimming Pool / gh3Selected Projects Share Projects Architects: Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Hayama, Japan Japanlast_img read more

 

A growing role as a living lab

first_imgAndrew Groover celebrates the complexity of trees, and makes it his life’s work to unlock how they adapt to their environments. It’s knowledge that’s critical for the U.S. Forest Service research geneticist — he works in California, where concerns about climate change have grown as wildfires there have increased in frequency and intensity.A practical problem for Groover, who is a University of California, Davis, adjunct professor of plant biology, is efficient access to the variety of trees he studies. His research requires a ready supply of species diversity, a tall order without laborious travel. But in 2012 his search for the perfect resource brought him to the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University — a 281-acre living museum holding more than 2,100 woody plant species from around the world.“Trees are fascinating for biology and research, but one of the greatest challenges in this research is finding trees tractable for study,” Groover said. “If you have a list of a dozen or two different species, where do you get all those? The Arnold Arboretum has all of the species we would ever want to look at, and then some.”Andrew Groover, U.S. Forest Service research geneticist, uses a pole pruner at the Arboretum to collect small samples of genetic material from the willows (Salix) collection. Photo by Suzanne GerttulaThe Arboretum also contains one of the most extensive collections of Asian trees in the world, which Groover said is advantageous to his research. Typically a researcher has to travel to various locations throughout the world, determine whether the trees are on public or private property, obtain permission to study and transport samples, overcome language and other barriers, and potentially return to the same site later to complete research, which can be challenging.“The Arnold Arboretum plays a crucial role in research and science and educating the public, connecting them with trees and forests. But it’s also a living laboratory and repository of hard-to-source species for research and is renowned for its collection of Asian disjuncts,” he said. “We can actually study these species pairs found in both Asia and the U.S. directly in the Arboretum. We didn’t need to go anywhere else.”Director of the Arnold Arboretum and Arnold Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology William (Ned) Friedman emphasized the extraordinary efforts that go into creating such a high-impact research destination.“Importantly, beyond the more than 16,000 accessioned woody plants at the Arnold Arboretum, we have a staff of world-class horticulturists, propagators, IT professionals, curators, and archivists, all of whom are devoted to ensuring that the living collections are what I call a ‘working collection’ of plants,” he said. “The plants of the Arboretum may look great in flower, or at the peak of fall colors, but these plants are here primarily to be studied by scholars at Harvard and from around the world. In 2018 alone, there were 79 different research projects using the living collections and landscape of the Arnold Arboretum.”Groover’s work with the Arboretum became a long-term collaboration. In 2014 he won a Sargent fellowship, and, working with Arboretum scientists, collected small samples of genetic material from specific Arboretum trees and propagated them in his own laboratory greenhouses. In 2015 Groover, with Friedman, organized the 35th New Phytologist Symposium held at the Arboretum. He has also given several research talks there, most recently in December on genomic approaches to understanding the development and evolution of forest trees.“When the Weld Hill Research Building was completed [in 2011], many of us in the research community saw that as a real commitment holding great possibilities for expanding into new areas of research,” he said. “We could not only access a broad range of species all in one location, we had a physical facility for research activities.”Groover’s work investigates genetic regulation of wood formation — the triggers of gene expression within the wood — which is driven by environment, including light, temperature, wind, water, gravity, even insects and disease. Studying diverse tree species helps him identify the genetic basis of how different species modify their growth and adapt to different environmental conditions.“Trees in general are very responsive to the environment, and trees can actually make adjustments in their wood anatomy to suit the environment,” Groover said. “One thing that is really interesting about trees is that they are perennial and live to decades or even thousands of years in the same place, and they have to be able to cope with all of the variation.”,The collaboration with the Arboretum is special because its trees contain valuable provenance.“The trees are well-cared for, are not likely to disappear or die so you can go back again, and they are all right there next to each other,” Groover said.While his in-depth research is on poplars (Populus spp.), the knowledge obtained may be beneficial in the study of many other tree species.“If the genetic regulation of a trait is conserved among species, then what we learn in poplar can be transferred to the hundreds of other species we would like to be able to better manage or understand,” Groover said. “We can transfer knowledge across different species and potentially use that information in the future for things like reforestation and restoration.”Suzanne Gerttula of the Forest Service began working in developmental plant genetics more than three decades ago and joined Groover’s laboratory in 2010. The former staff research associate in plant biology at U.C., Davis, has an interest in the underlying mechanisms of trees’ responses to gravity, such as occurs in weeping varieties.“The Arboretum is an incredible resource for both weeping and upright trees. It’s fascinating, fun, and inspiring to me to be able to get at the some of the biochemical bases of how life works,” she said.Groover’s enthusiasm for his subject spans sectors from ecological to economic. From understanding Earth cycles and climate change to helping the lumber, paper, fiber, and even biofuel industries, he hopes his research can inform solutions for forest management and conservation and identify new forms of renewable energy.“I think it’s important we have places like the Arnold Arboretum to help provide this sort of basic information that has the potential to help in the conservation and management of forests,” he said.Michael Dosmann, Keeper of the Living Collections at the Arboretum, said it has research potential across a wide swath of disciplines — taxonomic, horticultural, plant conservation, ecology, and developmental biology.“Our living collection’s research potential could never be exhausted; there is a constant need for its use, growth, and development,” he said. “[The] dynamic interplay between living collections and scientific research demonstrates the vital importance collections have to science and to society.”Scientists such as Groover enjoy access not only to the living collections, but also to other Arboretum resources, including affiliated collections containing herbarium specimens, archives, images, historical records, on-site greenhouse and laboratory space, centralized expertise, and, frequently, financial assistance in the form of grants and fellowships.“All too often, the cost both in time and dollars of assembling collections at their own institutions is prohibitive for researchers, making places like the Arboretum a vital resource, especially for those working with limited budgets,” Dosmann said.Evolving technology also plays a critical role, according to Dosmann, giving researchers the ability to access the Arboretum’s expansive resources, and making plant species more attainable.“With the aid of databases and other information systems, it is now much easier to see collections in the multiple dimensions within which they exist and appreciate their unlimited research potential,” he said.Groover said that with forests facing multiple threats, there’s never been a more important time to address forest biology and the use of technology.“In the west especially, we need new insights into how to make forests more resilient to drought and heat, including understanding the biology underlying stress responses in different tree species,” he said. “We are learning the complexities of forest trees and hope to ultimately be able to select genotypes or species that might perform better in the future. Working with the Arboretum offers the resources for this important research.”last_img read more

 

Kilgore takes $1,000 win at 141

first_imgBy Greg AregoniFRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (June 11) – Shawn Kilgore took R.M. Van Pay to slide job city in the $1,000 to win Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature, the second installment of 141 Speedway’s Red, White and Blue series.Jay Matthias led the opening lap from the pole.  Mike Mashl charged to the outside and grabbed the lead on the second circuit, then moved down on the track, which allowed Van Pay and Kilgore to make it to the leader’s back bumper.Van Pay stayed high on the track with Kilgore and they garnered the top two spots on lap 13.  Van Pay stayed in command until the sole caution flew with five laps remaining.  Kilgore worked his racer down low with Van Pay working the top shelf.With two laps remaining, Kilgore performed the perfect slide job off turn two and snatched the lead.  Kilgore picked up the $1,000 payday in front of Van Pay. Mashl ran to third with Matthias and Luke Lemmens rounding out the top five.Johnny Whitman charged from behind Kilgore and took home the checkered flag in the night’s second Modified feature by outrunning him on the final lap.One hundred and forty-five cars entered the pits to roam around the 1/3-mile. Feature winners also included Kyle Frederick in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Vince Engebregtsen in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Shaun Bangart in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.last_img read more

 

USC beach volleyball wins first-ever matchup versus Stanford

first_imgOn a windy and overcast Tuesday afternoon in Stanford, Calif., the top-ranked USC beach volleyball team easily passed its road test, defeating the Cardinal 5-0 at Stanford Beach Volleyball Stadium in the first-ever meeting between the two Pac-12 programs. With straight-set sweeps on all five courts, the victory on The Farm pushes USC’s record to 26-0 on the season with a 56-match winning streak, while Stanford falls to 12-6 overall. It was a reunion of sorts for head coach Anna Collier and her Trojans, as first-year Stanford head coach Andrew Fuller served as an assistant under Collier from 2012 to 2015 and helped coach USC to its first AVCA National Championship back in 2015. However, it was the veteran who had the upper hand on her apprentice, as the Trojans seized control from the start and never relinquished their grip.Courts four and five kicked things off for the Trojans, with USC getting on the board first from the No. 4 spot. Sophomore Abril Bustamante and freshman Joy Dennis jumped on Stanford’s Catherine Raquel and Shannon Richardson early and did not allow any breathing room, running away with a 21-12, 21-12 sweep for the Trojans’ first point of the dual. It was the first match back for Bustamante, as the sophomore had missed the last few weeks due to injury.Soon thereafter, USC chalked up another straight-set sweep thanks to juniors Jenna Belton and Jo Kremer at the five spot, as the duo posted a 21-17, 21-13 win over Kat Anderson and Courtney Bowen for the second dual point. Kremer and Belton moved to 28-3 overall on the season with a 24-1 mark in duals, and they improved their winning streak to eight matches in a row. To close out the first flight of matches, sophomores Becca Dunn and Katrina Kernochan won their exhibition match against Jennifer DiSanto and Chelsea Red-Horse Mohl (21-16, 21-10). The dual was clinched at court two, as seniors Sophie Bukovec and Allie Wheeler defeated Payton Chang and Ivana Vanjak by a score of 21-16, 21-13 to mark their 13th win together on the season. Just a few minutes later, a win at the top court from seniors Kelly Claes and Sara Hughes over Stanford freshmen Jenna Gray and Kathryn Plummer (21-14, 22-20) gave the Trojans their fourth point. The victory improved Claes and Hughes’ all-time record to 123-4 overall. To sew up the 5-0 sweep, junior Terese Cannon and senior Nicolette Martin won their match at court three, 21-14,21-17 over Stanford’s Morgan Hentz and Caitlin Keefe. The win was Cannon and Martin’s 24th on the season and their 21st dual victory in 2017. Overall, USC has won 88 of its last 90 duals during its lengthy unbeaten run.It will be another short turnaround for the Trojans as they now head back down to Los Angeles to host two teams, No. 5 Long Beach State and Cal State Bakersfield, for a three-way dual meet on Thursday at Merle Norman Stadium. The Trojans have never lost to the Roadrunners, while the 49ers are one of just three teams to ever take a dual match against USC at home — most recently in 2013. Long Beach State  (23-5) and CSU Bakersfield  (1-12) will kick things off with a dual at noon, while the Trojans and Long Beach State are slated for a dual at approximately  2 p.m., which will be televised on Pac-12 Networks. To close out the meet, USC will take on the Roadrunners for a dual scheduled for around 4 p.m.last_img read more

A Visual History Of The Web Told Through Webby Winners

first_imgEvery year, the Web changes a little bit more. As the years tick by, we may not notice how everything on the Internet is becoming a little bit more beautiful, a little easier to use. But, if you remember what the Web looked like in 1995 and now look around at what we have now in 2013, it is the difference between antiquity and modernity. The Webby Awards have been celebrating the best on the Web since 1997. Like the Web, the Webby Awards have grown in size and stature in the last 16 years and are now considered the highest honor that a website can garner these days. The 17th annual Webby Awards will be given next week on April 9th. To commemorate another year, the Webby Awards teamed up with Internet Explorer to produce a graphic timeline of the Web, as told through Webby winners since 1997. If you have some time to burn, hop on over to the site and see how the Web has evolved since the days before the Dot Com Bubble to the Mobile Revolution.Below, we took some of the best examples of how the Web has evolved since 1997. From SonicNet to TED Talks, the transformation of the Web from function to design has been remarkable.1997SonicNet Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Family Planet won the Home category for the Webby’s in 1997 and it is perhaps the quintessential late 1990s website. Actually, it is quite a bit better than most late 1990s websites. You can start seeing some of the early design trends that would pervade the Web for years to come in Family Planet, with the three column layout and banner headline on the top.2000Thrive Online Nike won another Webby in 2010 with Jumpman: A History of Flight. It was basically a way to show of Nike shoes through the years, especially those of basketball star Michael Jordan. The timeline-style website was informative, interactive and visually appealing. Nike might seem like an odd company to have such influence over the design of the Web, but it has proved multiple times that it can bring on the right people to implement creative new ideas to push boundaries. History of Flight won the Webby for Best Design – Aesthetics in 2010.2011TED Talks Flickr won multiple Webby awards in 2006, including Best Practices and Best Navigation/Structure. If you can believe it, Yahoo was actually good at bringing quality websites to the masses once upon a time (Yahoo acquired Flickr from Ludicorp in 2005). Flickr was the photo sharing site in the mid-2000s and its mix of design and functionality was second to none. 2009The Turbo Gene Test dan rowinski I am a proponent of giving NASA a lifetime achievement Webby just for being awesome. At a time when most government-run websites were husks of hyperlinks and text, NASA was pushing forward with visuals, videos and science. 2006Google Earth Tags:#design#web Gaming and computers have always mixed. Who was a kid int he 1980s and did not play Oregon Trail or Carmen San Diego? By 2003, games on the Web were becoming big business and Orisinal was an original player providing cute animal-based games that proved to be the biggest time-suck ever. “Apple Season” was a favorite, where players tried to catch as many apples as possible. NASA Towards the latter half of the 2000s, the Web became more interactive. NikeID, the website for Nike’s sensor-laden running show, was a great example of how brands and websites could show off their product in interesting visual and interactive fashions. NikeID won the Webby in 2009 for Best Design – Function. 2010Nike – A History Of Flight If we were to break the first 20 years or so of the Internet into two epochs, the boundary line between the two would be Google’s initial public offering in 2004. Since Google went public, the Internet has become faster, information has become easier to obtain and design has drastically increased. Google has had a large part to say in this. Google Earth won the Webby in 2006 for Best Design – Function. Google Earth made satellite imagery, once a curiosity for students and researchers, in the hands of anyone at had access to an Internet browser.Flickr By the time the new century rolled around, the Web started to look a little bit better than it had in the 1990s. Browsers were better and quality designers were buckling down on a more aesthetic Web. Then the Dot Com Bubble burst and many of those designers soon found themselves out of work. Thrive Online won the Health category in 2000 with a bold design, big fonts and front and center pictures.Epicuriouscenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market TED Talks have become must-see Internet over the past couple of years. In 2011, the TED website won the Webby for Best Design – Function. TED has shown us new ways to think about live and how video communities live on the Internet. 2012Kinetic Fanzine No. 1 Not everything was slick and trim in the year 2000. Epicurious won the Living category that year and was a jumbled mess. 2000 was still in the era of the Web when more was still thought of as, well… more. 2003PayPal Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The Internet is now a place where anybody with a little imagination, a friend with design chops and maybe some rudimentary knowledge of coding can create a great website that is lightyears ahead of what was being produced in 1997. Kinetic Fanzine, which won for Best Design – Visual in 2012 is a great example of that.Top image: National Film Board of Canada won for Best Photography in 2012 In 1997, the music industry was still healthy and churning out mega profits. Boy bands were the rage, Radiohead was coming into its own and Smashing Pumpkins was still together (they broke up and since have reformed). SonicNet won the Webby for Music that year and, well, it was 1997. The website itself was not much to look at but was considered a fairly high standard for the day.Family Planet Following the aftermath of the Dot Com Bubble, the Web picked up its pieces and forged ahead. By the early-to-mid 2000s design and functionality started to meet in interesting and creative ways. PayPal, the payments service that not only survived the Dot Com era but came out so far ahead that its alumni are now considered a technorati mafia, was one of the websites on the forefront of function and design. PayPal won the Webby in 2003 for Financial Services.Orisinal Turbo Gene Test was a website created for car company Saab. It was a bit of a marketing gimmick, but it was beautiful and portended a trend that we have seen a lot of since 2009: brands creating interesting websites to promote their business. It is no longer flashing banner ads and keyword search results. Turbo Gene Test won the Webby for Best Design – Aesthetic in 2009.NikeIDlast_img read more

 

Finding migraine relief with botox

first_imgThe migraines began in 1987. When one struck, Kari Carlson would see black spots and become nauseous. The searing pain would bring her to her knees.Each migraine would last three to five days. She would have them at least once a month, usually about the same time as her menstrual cycle.But about 10 years ago, the migraines changed. They became more frequent, sometimes daily, and the symptoms are different. Instead of seeing spots, Carlson, 53, sees double. The double-vision means Carlson can’t drive, can’t work, can’t function. Pain radiates across the her head. She often vomits. Each headache lingers, sometimes for days, until another migraine strikes.For years, Carlson tried to manage her pain and chronic migraines with over-the-counter medication, mainly ibuprofen or Excedrin Migraine. Nothing gave her relief.Doctors offered few solutions. Some prescribed preventive drugs; they never worked. Some recommended narcotic pain medication, which Carlson didn’t want. Others told her migraines were just going to be a part of her life.“It’s very discouraging as a patient,” Carlson said. “Nobody could fix me.”But now, Carlson is finding relief from a somewhat unexpected source: Botox.In July, in the midst of a particularly severe migraine, Keith Carlson drove his wife to the emergency department. Hospital staff suspected a stroke and ordered an MRI and other tests. Turns out, Carlson was having a severe, complicated migraine — the symptoms of which tend to mimic those of a stroke.last_img read more
