The ‘Huaxi Mengxibitan’ residential project is located in Huaxi, a growing district 17km far from the city center of Guiyang, Guizhou province capital. The project dates back to 2004, when the district was starting its expansion. At that time, especially in Guizhou area, construction and technical skills were very basic, that is why architects had to find simple and alternative ways to control project construction. A 1:1 ‘model’ has been created on site using bamboo frames. This helped to control the scale of the project in relationship with the mountainous environment. Positioning these bamboos also helped to highlight critical points, mainly for the foundations, due to the particularly harsh conditions of the site and composition of the soil. The choice to turn this ‘bamboo net’ into a concrete one has been, again, mainly due to lack of construction skills, which could not allow the use of steel frames. The shape of the so called ‘Dream Stream’ takes inspiration from the typical informal architecture of Guizhou wooden villages.Save this picture!AxonometricThe net has been modeled on the mountain, following its shape. Using this simple grid helped the architects to better control the project. The repetition of a single module originates a system, which, always because of lack of skills, slightly changes. But the architects were aware of these problems and adopted the grid exactly in order to control what could not be fully controlled, allowing mistakes. Mistakes that in the end result as unexpected and surprising changes of the original module.Save this picture!Courtesy of West-line studioSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!Courtesy of West-line studioSave this picture!AxonometricThe main characteristic of this residential project is its complicated circulation system. Forking routes originated different kind of yards and different level of privacy. Yards are the most important spaces in Huaxi Mengxibitan houses’ composition. Some have water, some are sweet-smelling with flowers, others are bamboo yards. Some courtyards are crossed by this articulated system of paths, some are created by paths moving all around, others are ‘covered’ by aerial boardwalks. Stairs also play a crucial role in a project built following the mountain’s shape. Some are open public connections between courtyards, others are more private, enclosed between walls. Together with the path system they help to create floating spaces in between residences, open courtyards on different levels which generate every time different walking experiences.   Save this picture!Courtesy of West-line studioSave this picture!Study ModelSave this picture!Courtesy of West-line studioProject gallerySee allShow lessOVO Wroclaw / Gottesman-Szmelcman ArchitectureSelected ProjectsThe Gate / Hyunjoon Yoo ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Huaxi, Guiyang, Guizhou, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Transferred to Mornaguia prison, 20 km north of Tunis, he faces a possible three-year jail sentence. His trial is scheduled to begin on 19 November.

There, he was interrogated for several hours about an interview that appeared on 11 July with an Islamic fundamentalist leader, Abdallah el-Chadli. Two days later, the reporter who conducted the interview, Anas Mezzour, was summoned for the same reason.Karim Selmaoui, a photographer with Journal hebdomadaire, was refused entry on 12 July to Mechouar Square, opposite the royal palace in Rabat, where the public celebration of King Mohammed VI’s wedding was taking place. A government official ordered him out of the official car that was taking him, the special correspondent of the French magazine Paris Match and the technical crew of the Qatari TV station Al-Jazeera to the festivities. Selmaoui was properly accredited for the occasion.On 14 February, the Casablanca appeals court handed down to Journal hebdomadaire’s managing editor, Aboubakr Jamai, and its general manager, Ali Amar, suspended jail sentences of respectively three and two months and awarded damages against them of 500,000 dirhams (about _50,000). Foreign minister Mohammed Benaissa had filed a complaint about articles that had criticised the way he bought a house in Washington in 1996 for the Moroccan embassy there when he was the ambassador.On 10 July, hearing of an appeal by Demain magazine was deferred until 11 December against the sentencing last 21 November of its managing editor, Ali Lmrabet, to four months imprisonment and a 30,000 dirhams (about _3,000) fine by a Rabat court for “putting out false news undermining public order or likely to do so.”A Spanish journalist, Ignacio Cembrero, of the daily El Pais, was followed on 8 and 9 March after arriving in Rabat to write articles about the situation in Western Sahara.The Islamic fundamentalist media was also targeted.

Aljamaa.org and yassine.net, both set up by the fundamentalist group Justice and Charity and hosted by servers outside Morocco, have also been blocked.The new press law was passed by the House of Representatives on 6 May. Despite some positive aspects (lighter penalties for journalists, smaller fines, easier procedures for launching a publication and the need to give reasons for confiscation), the law was especially tough.Jail terms for insulting the king and the royal family remain, with offenders risking between three and five years in prison (compared with between five and 20 years previously).

In the details provided to the court by the state government it is indicated that out of 35,091 cases registered under the Act, between the year 2015 to 2019, charge sheets have been filed in 6451 cases. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi said “Rule 7 (2) provides that charge sheet shall be filed within a period of 60 days. The state shall clarify whether the investigating officers have submitted any explanation for delay in investigation. The State government will have to take a call why there is a gross delay in filing charge sheets.” To address the issue of delay in investigation and large number of acquittals, the court has suggested the state government conduct regular training courses for investigating officers and Public prosecutors appointed under the Atrocities Act. The bench said “State will place on record details of training programs organized for them. Perhaps this will be one step which will ensure that the investigation and trials are conducted in a better fashion.” The bench has also called for a report from the Registrar General of the High Court on the status of the proposal submitted to it for setting up additional special courts. The Registrar General will also state the vacancy position in the cadre of district judges and steps taken to fill the vacancies. The court suggested it to issue a circular to all special courts under the Atrocities Act, inviting attention of judicial officers to the timelines fixed for speedy trial under the Atrocities Act, especially section 14, thereof. The report to be submitted will also state if any training workshop is being conducted for judicial officers who are in-charge of courts under the Atrocities Act. The bench gave the direction while hearing a petition public interest litigation filed by Parishishtha Jaathi/Parishishtha Pangadagala Melvicharane Mattu Balavardhana Sangha Karnataka (Committee for Monitoring and Strengthening SCs/STs in Karnataka), seeking directions to ensure proper implementation of the Act and Rules in the state. It noted that “This is not an adversarial litigation. Judicial notice will have to be taken of the fact that even several years after the Constitution is adopted and after the Atrocities Act came into force in the year 1989, there are several cases happening across the country of Atrocities within the meaning of Section 3 of Atrocities act. Therefore, it is all the more necessary for the state to implement provision of this Atrocities Act and said rules. Entire machinery for ensuring implementation in its true letter and spirit has been provided under the Act and said rules the only question is of activating the said machinery, for optimum results.” The court has also asked the state to ensure that meetings of the district level vigilance and monitoring committees constituted under Rule 17 and Sub division level vigilance and monitoring committees are held at least once in every three months. It has further directed the state government to place on record data regarding number of meetings held of the State Level Vigilance and Monitoring committee, constituted as per Rule 16. Copies of the minutes of the meeting of meetings held during the last two year shall be placed on record for court perusal. As regards effective implementation of Rule 12 (4), which requires the District Magistrate or the Sub-Divisional Magistrate or any other Executive Magistrate to provide immediate relief in cash or in kind or both to the victims of atrocity, their family members and dependents. The bench has asked the State government to place particulars on record showing compliance of the said rule. Further, the contingency plan as stipulated under Rule 15 is to be placed on record of the court. The compliance reports by the state government and the Registrar General have to be submitted to the court in four weeks time. The bench will next year the case on October 15. The plea prays for directions to the respondents to effectively implement the POA Act and Rules and to monitor the implementation of the same in the state. Direct them to set up Exclusive Special Courts as stipulated under Section 14 of the PoA Act in atrocity prone districts and high-pendency districts of the State of Karnataka. Direct the respondents to conduct investigations in a timely manner in accordance with Rules 7(2) and 7(3) of the PoA Rules. To pay timely compensation and relief to the victims in accordance with Rules 12(4) of the PoA Rules. Next Storylast_img read more
