Main: East Side Lofts is a mixed-use building in a rapidly changing neighborhood near Frankfurt, Germany’s East Harbor (Osthafen). The original prewar building was built as a factory; however, due to the outbreak of World War I the design was never fully realized and the building was used instead as a hospital and later as worker’s housing. 1100 Architect’s design addresses two tasks: the renovation of the historic building and a contemporary addition of equal size that completes the original volume. 1100’s comprehensive investigation of the existing structure involved a collaboration with Frankfurt’s Landmarks Department, from which the firm developed its strategies to finally realize this building almost a century later.Save this picture!Site PlanTo achieve a cohesive whole, the addition interprets to the volume, rhythm, and proportions of the original building but reimagines the unfinished wing in a modern language and with new materials. The project adheres to two design concepts: the exterior wrapping of the façade and the interior loft layout.Save this picture!© Nikolas KoenigThe façade is inspired by the original mansard roof and conceived as a continuous wrapper. The outer surface of the building seamlessly folds along the height of the façade to ultimately form the roof. All surfaces are uniformly clad in cement fiberboard and highlighted with colored reveals in the depth of the windows. These panels playfully bend to reflect light capturing a range of visual tones as one moves around the building. Modern in character and shape, the new façade establishes a contemporary foil to the landmark structure. In addition to its distinct form, the building envelope employs highly rated soundproofing materials to mitigate noise from the harbor. Central to this strategy are the acoustical double windows which sit deep into the thick walls, deflecting sound vibrations.Save this picture!Section C-DSave this picture!© Nikolas KoenigThe loft layout of the interiors places importance on flexibility of open space. Key characteristics of the historic structure – like its high ceilings and large windows — were transposed to the addition. The upper floors utilize the attic to provide continuity of space, creating bespoke lofts with non-traditional floor plans.Save this picture!© Nikolas KoenigProject gallerySee allShow lessBRLO BRWHOUSE / Graft ArchitectsSelected ProjectsChamps-Meunier South / Richter Dahl Rocha & AssociésSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Frankfurt, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

QC tasked with investigating audit scandal at RICS

first_imgThe Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has replaced the head investigator of its financial review sparked by whistleblowers concerned about an internal audit and staff redundancies.Alison Levitt QC has taken over from Peter Oldham as independent reviewer of historic treasury management issues at RICS after he was unable to continue due to “professional reasons”.The external review was commissioned at the end of January and due to publish findings by early April, but the body now says this is likely to be mid-June.Last year, The Negotiator reported that RICS agent members were unhappy about the handling of 140 redundancies at the trade body, where plans to offload staff were executed with only minor pay cuts for senior staff.The Sunday Times then revealed that four non-exec directors had their contracts ended abruptly after they questioned how the organisation’s finances were being run.They said an unflattering report into its treasury management had been buried by senior management following reports that RICS had extended its overdraft without informing the organisation’s board.Treasury controlTreasury controls are the checks and balances larger businesses employ at board level to ensure they have the day-to-day cash to operate.The NEDs discovered that the report was critical of RICS’s internal financial regulation.But RICS denied that their departure was linked to its probe into the report and told The Sunday Times it was financially sound.The review will soon be issuing a call for evidence and its remit remains unchanged.peter oldham alison levitt RICS April 14, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

The Upcoming Elections in Augusta: It’s not over yet

first_imgNews that Congressman Bruce Poliquin is not only challenging in federal court the Second District outcome but is also requesting a recount is a reminder that the conclusion of some elections seem to be never ending.It also brings to mind the fact that some of the most important elections have yet even to occur. They happen just in the next few days. They are for Secretary of State, Treasurer and Attorney General. Soon to unfold in the State House.In Maine, the Secretary of State’s position is one that has been filled by such notables as future governors Lewis Barrows and Kenneth Curtis.Twelve of the last 14 years it has been held by Bar Harbor native Matt Dunlap, a former Old Town State Representative, a seat in recent years occupied by his wife Michelle Dunphy.Maine is one of three states where the job is filled by the state legislature.In Maine, this has ordinarily meant that a person representing the party with the most seats is likely to be elected. This has happened in nearly every case of the Secretary of State’s election except just 40 years ago. That was when Democrat Rodney Quinn benefited from a Republican defector to win election over former gubernatorial candidate Linwood Palmer even though the Republicans controlled the legislature and otherwise held their own in selecting the other officers.The situation is a bit in contrast to that of New Hampshire where for the last 44 years Democrat William Gardner has held the position even though during most of that time the Granite State has been controlled by Republicans.Gardner is best known nationally for his fierce strategic moves to preserve New Hampshire’s first in the nation presidential primary status.Taking a page to some extent from Gardner’s book here in Maine has been two-term incumbent State Treasurer Terry Hayes. She has been elected twice to her position even though the Democratic party has held enough seats to elect someone else. There were just enough defections among their ranks so she was elected over incumbent Democrat Neria Douglas of Auburn in 2014 and then reelected in 2016. (Douglas was originally elected by taking Republican Bruce Poliquin’s place in 2012.)She is running a third time but her prospects are dimmed by the fact that Democrats now have more overpowering control of the legislature than they have had in the past two elections. Thus, it is likely Democrat Henry Beck, a former state representative and lawyer from Waterville will probably prevail over her.The election of Attorney General will certainly capture the most attention. Five candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination which will be tantamount to election.Besides being the law enforcement officer and in some cases the chief counterweight to gubernatorial power it has also been a springboard to higher office.Five of its occupants including most recently Gov. Brennan and Governor Elect Mills have gone on to win election as governor, six have been United States Senators and one, Nathan Clifford has, become a United States Supreme Court Justice. Two have become speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives, including one of the more powerful public figures from Maine to hold forth on the national stage, U.S. House Speaker Thomas Reed. His iron-fisted control over Congress during the 1890s was so preemptive that it won him the sobriquet of “Czar.” It is also why a treatise on parliamentary procedure he wrote, Reed’s Rules, is still relied upon as one of the leading procedural authorities in conducting public meetings. A statue commemorating him and his 6 foot 3 inch nearly 300 pound frame is one of the most prominent landmarks on Portland’s Western Promenade.Though Maine is not alone in giving the legislature power to pick the Secretary of State and Treasurer, Maine does stand in a solitary position with respect to electing its attorney general. We are the only state where the legislature does that.It has not, however, always been the case. When Maine became a state in 1820, the Attorney General was appointed by the Governor. (It certainly would be much to the envy of our outgoing governor, though Gov. LePage has advocated a popular election of the position.)Indeed, in 1820, even county commissioners, county attorneys, clerks of court, sheriffs, registers of probate and various judges including judges of probate were all appointed by the governor, some even for lifetime terms.Gradually through the 1840s and 1850s, in the aftermath of the Jacksonian democracy movement, Maine shifted to a popular election for most of these officials.Even the so-called municipal court and “police” judges – a rough equivalent to our present district courts – would be popularly elected after 1856. The status of these switched back to a gubernatorial appointment system by 1873. Judges and registrars of probate, sheriffs, county commissioners, county treasurers and registers of deeds remain popularly elected.The exception to this trend in favor of popular election and what makes Maine stand out is with the constitutional officers, the Secretary and Treasurer since 1820 and the Attorney General since 1856, having been the subject of legislative elections.Our system, both in the caucuses which nominate candidates as well as in the elections by the joint convention of the legislature, requires a majority vote. There is something thus akin to instant runoff even though it is not ranked choice.The runoff system or at least the requirement for a majority vote was most dramatically illustrated in modern times by the 1971 contest between incumbent Attorney General James Erwin, a Republican, and his Democratic challenger Waterville attorney Bruce Chandler. In the initial voting, Erwin was one vote ahead of Chandler 90 to 89. Three votes were cast for others.Because incoming minority leader John Martin and other Democrats challenged the outcome on the grounds that the vote tabulation was not a majority and because they asserted that there were more ballots cast than there were members in attendance, a re-vote occurred. (It’s something Bruce Poliquin is also seeking in his own federal lawsuit over the Congressional race). In the second tabulation, the outcome was 92 to 88 in favor of giving Erwin, who had been most recently the GOP nominee for governor, a third term as attorney general.Erwin’s close call at that time was significant in that even though the Republicans held a 13 vote legislative majority the result demonstrated that several in the GOP had jumped ship to vote for the Democratic candidate. In that election as in others for constitutional officers, one does not know for sure, however, who the defectors were. That is because the voting is by secret ballot.This will also be the case in the forthcoming party caucuses and elections that soon unfold in the State House. These are ones that will be well worth monitoring not only for their immediate consequences but also for their long-term implications.Paul H. Mills is a Farmington attorney well-known for his analyses and historical understanding of public affairs in Maine. He can be reached by e-mail: [email protected]last_img read more

Oteil Burbridge Was Just As Blown Away By Dead & Co’s Autzen Stadium Show As You Were [Photos]

first_imgPhoto: Dave Vann On Saturday night, Dead & Company made their way to Eugene, Oregon for their first-ever performance at Autzen Stadium. The show was particularly special for Dead & Co by all accounts—including the account of bassist Oteil Burbridge.Update 4/4/20: Watch the live re-broadcast of Dead & Company’s memorable Eugene, OR show on 6/30/18 below and check out an incredible photo gallery from the show by Dave Vann here:Dead & Company – Eugene, OR – 6/30/18After taking a few hours to reflect and bask in the glow of Dead & Co’s Eugene performance, Burbridge took to Facebook on Sunday to gush about the experience. Read the post below:Confession: I previously thought my favorite place to play with Dead & Company was Alpine Valley. I had always heard about how great those Grateful Dead shows were. But last night in Eugene, OR was something different.It was like some kind of GD nerve center. Like the “Old Growth Forest” of Deadheads. I’m not sure how to describe it but it was a new high for me and it revealed an even deeper level of the love this particular fanbase has to offer.And I say this having just had another transcendent night at the Gorge so you know it must have been SERIOUS at Autzen Stadium last night.Thank you to my bandmates and thank you #Deadheads old and new While Saturday marked the Eugene debut for this new Grateful Dead offshoot, the original Grateful Dead were frequent visitors to the University of Oregon football stadium, playing 10 shows there between their debut in 1978 and their final run in 1994.Along with his post, Oteil shared a beautiful photo of the performance courtesy of veteran photographer Dave Vann. Among countless other shows by countless other bands over the years, Vann previously made the trip to Eugene to capture shots of a Grateful Dead performance in 1994. He returned to Autzen on Saturday to capture the magic of this new chapter in the proverbial book of the Dead, and the results were simply spectacular.Below, check out some of Dave Vann’s photos from the Grateful Dead in Eugene on June 18th, 1994, as well as a full gallery of images from Dead & Co’s “transcendent night” in Oregon. You can also read a full recap and watch some pro-shot videos from the performance here.Dead & Company’s tour continues down the west coast with performances tonight, July 2nd, and tomorrow, July 3rd, at in the heart of Grateful Dead country at Mountain View, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheater.

Helping ‘the poorest of the poor’

first_img Read Full Story Anubhav and Arunika Agarwal share more than a marriage. Both earned MBAs focused on health management in their home country of India. Both worked in India and Afghanistan on health improvement projects. And both are about to graduate with master of public health degrees from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).But even as each earns an M.P.H. in global health, they have focused coursework in different areas—Anubhav on quantitative methods, Arunika on health economics—so that their knowledge and skill sets will be complementary. That strategy has helped them get the most out of their HSPH educations. “He can tell me what he has learned and I can tell him what I have learned,” said Arunika. “We have built on our partnership.”A house is not a homeAnubhav literally grew up in a hospital. His father, a critical care physician, ran a private hospital in Uttar Pradesh, India and the family’s residence was on the top floor. That unique situation enabled Anubhav to see how well—or poorly—the hospital functioned. He came to understand that “sometimes it’s the organization and administration of health services, not medical science, that plays the key role in improving a health outcome or saving someone’s life.”last_img read more
