This house is located in a corner lot in the residential district of Al-Salem. The project  was developed with a double condition imposed by the clients: giving complete privacy to its users; and become an iconic element in the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoSave this picture!SeccionesThe building is a folded structure of reinforced concrete as an origami, which revolves on itself continuously to create a central courtyard on which all the spaces of the house revert. The few openings to the street are always biased, preventing the view of the neighbors and excessive sunlight in the rooms.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoWith relatively small dimensions spaces for local standards, it was tried to give the greatest possible flexibility to their use, introducing multiple circulations that allow to connect the rooms in a continuous and uninterrupted way. As in the traditional Muslim architecture, the corridors were avoided to the maximum, understanding the house as a single system, of variable conditions, where different activities are developed throughout the day.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoProject gallerySee allShow lessAbstract Gallery / Yin Peiru Architecture StudioSelected ProjectsThe Illusion / OBBASelected Projects Share Area:  1300 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Nelson Garrido+ 19Curated by Danae Santibañez Share “COPY”last_img read more

first_img WHO confirms two H5N1 cases, one fatal The World Health Organization (WHO) today confirmed two H5N1 avian influenza cases, one of them fatal, that were apparently reported in the media on Apr 24. The first case involved a 23-year-old Vietnamese woman from Tranh Hoa province who got sick on Apr 16, was hospitalized Apr 21, and died the next day. An investigation revealed poultry deaths from the H5N1 virus around her home. Her illness is now listed as Vietnam’s 111th case and its 56th fatality. The second case is in a 34-year-old Egyptian woman from Gharbia governorate who became ill on Apr 21 and was hospitalized and treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu) the same day. She is in stable condition. An investigation found that she had close contact with sick and dead poultry before she became ill. Her case pushes Egypt’s H5N1 count to 68 cases, 23 of them fatal. The two latest cases raise the global H5N1 case count to 423, of which 258 were fatal.[May 6 WHO statement on Vietnamese case][May 6 WHO statement on Egyptian case] Signs of low-path avian flu outbreak detected in TennesseeTyson Foods said yesterday that tests on breeder hens at one of its contract farms in Lincoln County, Tennessee, revealed the chickens had antibodies to a low-pathogenicity H7N9 avian influenza virus, Reuters reported. The birds showed no signs of illness. Authorities culled 15,000 birds to prevent spread of the virus. In late March the same strain was detected in birds at a commercial farm in Kentucky, which led to the culling of 20,000 chickens, but officials haven’t said if the two outbreaks were related.

SSEN taps Hitachi ABB Power Grids for Shetland HVDC link

first_imgIt marks a European first for the HDVC Light technology and the second project of its kind in the world. The Shetland link will generate 600 megawatts of renewable energy once operational at the estimated completion date of 2024. Categories: The link, which will connect Shetland to the UK transmission system for the first time, should boost security of power supply and help transmit wind power generated on the islands. Hitachi ABB Power Grids has won a contract from SSEN Transmission to deliver a pioneering multi-terminal HVDC interconnection in Shetland. “The HVDC link will deliver substantial socio-economic and environmental benefits to Shetland’s, Scotland’s and the UK’s economy, supporting hundreds of skilled jobs in the process.” Niklas Persson, managing director of the Grid Integration business at Hitachi ABB Power Grids, said: Sandy Mactaggart, SSEN Transmission’s director of Offshore Delivery.
