These live-work townhouses are the first of two small developments on a quiet street in the neighbourhood of Riverdale, in the South of Toronto.  The development consists of five two-bedroom units, each with a mezzanine studio, a large recreational room, and an interior garden. Save this picture!© Scott NorsworthyEach of the five townhouses is organized around two voids formed by a stairwell and a lightwell. The lightwells offset the building’s depth by allowing daylight to penetrate deep into the interior of each unit. Because of their generous lighting, they also provide the opportunity to grow private gardens and cultivate lush greenery. Working in conjunction, the voids divide each townhouse into two halves linked by a small bridge. This arrangement generates a variety of distinct spaces and relationships which stand in stark contrast to the rigid plans of conventional townhouses.Save this picture!AxonometricA unique condition of the site is its landlocked nature. As it is bound by residential and industrial buildings on three sides, the deep setback at the rear and interior lightwell are used to bring in light and air. The size and materiality of the development respects the urban character of the context while remaining modern in its expression.  In spite of its density, the development follows the domestic scale of the area. While the dark brick of the façade reflects contemporary aesthetics, it also speaks to the material culture of its Victorian neighbours. The large roof terraces provided for each townhouse offer intimate views of the street below and sweeping panoramas of the city beyond.Save this picture!© Scott NorsworthyThe townhouse typology provides a means of urban densification without the environmental and infrastructural strains typically associated with larger developments.  Additionally, large walls of high performance glazing with operable windows allow for ample daylight and natural cross ventilation, reducing overall energy consumption. The additional lighting and ventilation offered by the internal voids further decrease the need for extensive electrical or mechanical systems. The completed townhouses acknowledge the economic realities of development without compromising spatial quality or architectural expression. They represent a sustainable model of incremental growth which simultaneously considers both the city’s past and future.Save this picture!© Scott NorsworthyProject gallerySee allShow lessThe World’s Best Architectural Photographs Selected by 2017 Sony World Photography A…Architecture NewsMichelle Obama Joins List of Keynote Speakers for 2017 AIA National ConventionArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Toronto, ON, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

French minister must not ignore freedom of information during Cuba visit

first_img Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet April 11, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 French minister must not ignore freedom of information during Cuba visit CubaAmericas News Reporters Without Borders has sent a letter about freedom of information in Cuba to French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, who is about to make the first official visit to the Caribbean island by a member of the French government since 1983.Cuba’s violations of freedom of information must not be ignored during this visit. Improvement in relations between the European Union and Cuba must not be at the expense of Cuba’s journalists and bloggers.

All independent media, both traditional and online, are censored in Cuba, which is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in our 2014 press freedom index. Even defending the right to information is obstructed by President Raúl Castro’s government, which refuses to recognize NGOs, automatically treating them as accomplices to US hegemony.Three Cuban journalists and bloggers are currently detained for disseminating information regarded as “counterrevolutionary” or defamatory of the Castro regime. Although the mass roundups of the 2003 Black Spring are over, arbitrary arrest has never ceased to be part of the daily life of journalists in Cuba.More than a decade after the arrests of 75 journalists, librarians and human rights defenders, there has been no real improvement in the situation of these categories of people, as evidenced by the detention of Angel Santiesteban-Prats, a blogger held for the past 13 months, and José Antonio Torres, a former journalist with the official newspaper Granma, who was sentenced to 14 years in prison in July 2012. Since the start of 2014, more than 15 journalists have been arrested for short periods, supposedly for identity checks.Reporters Without Borders was recently outraged to learn of several arbitrary arrests and acts of intimidation by Cuban officials affecting two journalists and their families.Roberto de Jesús Guerra, a journalist who runs Hablemos Press, an online information and free speech advocacy centre, reported on social networks on 3 April that immigration officials at Havana’s José Martí International Airport had just held him for six hours and confiscated several of his books and work documents. He was returning from a trip abroad in which he had reported violations of freedom of information in Cuba to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and had participated in a seminar in Mexico on independent journalism.His sister, Sandra Guerra, his 12-year-old daughter and his seven-year-old nephew were detained by the police for several hours two days later. He told Reporters Without Borders that he had no news of them throughout their arbitrary detention. These particularly shocking arrests are symptomatic of the oppressive climate of intimidation in which journalists in Cuba have to work.A court in the central province of Sancti Spíritus sentenced Yoení de Jesús Guerra García, an independent blogger with the Yayabo Press agency, to seven years in prison on 13 March 2014. Held in Nieves Morejón prison since October 2013, he has been the repeated victim of violence by prison staff, which is unfortunately common in Cuban detention centres. The length of the period between his arrest and sentence, a year and a half, unquestionably violated the fundamental right of defence. Your forthcoming meeting with your Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, cannot avoid the major challenges posed by the defence of freedom of information. The abusive treatment of journalists and netizens has been at the heart of the European Union’s concerns since 2003 and must legitimately be raised during your talks.France plays a leading role internationally, especially in the United Nations, as regards the issue of the safety of journalists. The renewal of bilateral ties between France and Cuba should not be at the expense of respect for the right to information.I thank you in advance for the attention you give to this request.Sincerely,Christophe DeloireReporters Without Borders secretary-generallast_img read more
