The starting point for this task was a typical challenge in Oslo: densification in an area of existing single family houses. The plot was a lovely old garden, but a flat terrain and a relatively tight situation gave a limited view. It was important for us to preserve much of the garden for outdoor use, but also as a natural quality to the enjoyment of residents, both outside and inside. Therefore, the ground floor has a relatively limited footprint, while the larger upper floor cantilevers out creating covered outdoor areas.Save this picture!Site PlanThe house is broken up into smaller volumes to adapt to the relatively tight situation and the scale of the surrounding buildings. Save this picture!© Gunnar SøråsAs an addition to the garden, and as compensation for the reduced view, the project creates an inner landscape, a sequence of rooms with varying scale and use, different degrees of transparency and privacy, changing views and light conditions. The central double height living room is the heart of the house and connects all the rooms and areas. The room is surrounded in first floor by lobby, kitchen and dining room, and the garden with its various outdoor areas.Save this picture!© Lars Petter PettersenA staircase leads up to a gallery with access to the private rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. The gallery is a casual place, and acts as an extension of the rooms. A large skylight provides varied light and shadow effects through the day.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!PlanThe house structure is prefabricated wooden columns and beams. All structure parts are exposed in the interior of the project. The cantilevered rooms on the 2nd floor hanging from high beams under the roof. The beams have different dimensions, depending on the cantilever length. The columns have unique dimensions, adapted to their individual loads. It has not been the goal to standardize or clean up the construction, but rather let it be an organic result of the housing geometry.Save this picture!© Lars Petter PettersenA system that cannot immediately be read as a clear structure, but rather gives the qualities of a forest, where you can let your eyes wander along continuing branches. The project is carried out within a limited budget. An open and trusting cooperation between the builder, architect and contractor has nevertheless enabled a distinctive and elaborate house.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessEmilio Ambasz: “I Detest Writing Theories, I Prefer Writing Fables”InterviewsArchitecture Students: Then Vs NowArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Oslo, NorwayLocation to be used only as a reference.

Oxford places low down in drinking survey

first_imgOxford has come near the bottom of a drinking survey, ranking 59th of the 68 participating universities.Student Beans questioned a total of 2,027 university students at these universities. Oxford students were shown to drink a weekly average of 13.8 units of alcohol per student. This figure comes in below the limits recommended for either males or females by the health website “”. The website recommends that men don’t drink more than 21 units per week and that women don’t exceed 14 units.It seems that northerners drink the most, with Leeds Met and Liverpool topping the list, and and the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, coming in third. The average student at each of these three universities exceeds 26 units of alcohol per week. However, 14% of students participating said that they drink more than 30 units of alcohol every week whilst at university.Anna Richmond, a first-year student reading Classics and English at Trinity, told Cherwell that she was “rather disappointed” to see Oxford so low down on the list. She added, “There’s definitely a link betwen our workload and the fact we drink less. We’re so busy day to day that you can’t really afford to have a hangover.”Indeed, many universities whose courses are viewed as the most challenging academically are to be found near the bottom of the list. Cambridge ranks 51st, with an average consumption of 14.7 units per student per week, as does Warwick. Bristol comes in just behind with 14.6 units.As part of their survey, Student Beans produced some statistics around the figures, revealing that a lot of students see drinking as essential to social life at university. 57% agree that alcohol helps you make friends at university, with 37% of students drinking at least 3 times a week. One fifth of students said that they “would not be able to survive a term at university without drinking alcohol”.When asked, many Oxford students couldn’t put a figure the number of units they consume in a week. Cherwell spoke to second year biologist Claire Thorpe, who said, “I don’t really know how much I drink on a weekly basis – a bottle of wine, five tequilas, some jägerbombs. It’s hard to keep track because I often get drinks bought for me.”Interestingly, however, Oxford ranks much higher in Student Beans’ sex survey conducted earlier this year, placing 32nd out of the 59 universities taking part.For many Oxford students, it seems that alcohol and sex are inextricably linked. When asked what her motivations for drinking were, a student from St Hugh’s who wished to remain anonymous told Cherwell that she drinks “so that men will take advantage”.While Oxford students may place sex over alcohol, Cambridge’s priorities seem different: the other place came significantly lower than Oxford in the sex survey. While Oxford students have slept with an average of 5.6 people in their lifetime, Cambridge students have only slept with an average of 3.7 people.Immi Effendi, a second-year Human Sciences student at St Hugh’s seems to think that there’s certainly a connection between Cambridge’s thirst and its dry-spell, saying, “They are obviously driven to drink because they’re not getting any.”last_img read more

Shohei Ohtani reports all is normal a day after his return to pitch for the Angels

first_imgARLINGTON, Texas — A day after the radar gun readings heard ’round the world, there was still no indication of anything seriously wrong with Shohei Ohtani.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Ohtani’s first pitching appearance in nearly three months was marked by a dramatic drop in velocity, but Manager Mike Scioscia and Ohtani both reiterated on Monday what he they’d said after the game Sunday.Ohtani’s elbow is healthy.“It is a little sore because I threw yesterday in a live game situation, but it’s nothing out of the norm,” Ohtani said through his interpreter on Monday. “I’ll see from here and try to prepare for the next start.” Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Ohtani was throwing 95-99 mph in the first two innings, but 91-92 mph in the third, which set off alarms that maybe his elbow was not sound. His velocity dropped slightly in the last two innings of his June 6 outing, and afterward he reported the tightness that led to the MRI that led to the diagnosis.“Naturally a red flag goes up (with a drop in velocity), especially with what happened last time,” Scioscia said Monday. “But Shohei said he felt great. He had no apprehension about what was happening in his elbow.”Aside from the back and finger issues, Scioscia added another explanation for the drop in the velocity.“He said his delivery was a little out of whack and he wanted to make sure he could get the ball into decent zones, so he wasn’t really jumping on it,” Scioscia said.NEW PITCHERThe Angels claimed right-hander Luke Farrell on waivers from the Chicago Cubs. Farrell was optioned to rookie-level Orem, because all the other Angels’ minor league seasons ended on Monday. If the Angels choose to bring Farrell to the majors, the soonest it could be is Friday, after Orem’s season ends.Farrell, the son of former Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell, has a career 5.28 ERA in 30 games over the past two seasons, with the Kansas City Royals, Cincinnati Reds and Cubs. He has started three games.This season Farrell started in all 12 of his games with the Cubs’ Triple-A team, posting a 3.64 ERA with 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings.ALSOJustin Upton was out of the lineup for a second straight day after suffering a concussion on Saturday. Scioscia said Upton was “better, but not quite cleared to go out and play yet.”…Tyler Skaggs (groin) had a bullpen session on Monday in Arizona. Skaggs said last week he was aiming to be able to rejoin the rotation around the start of the upcoming homestand, on Sept. 10, and then make three starts. …Nick Tropeano (shoulder) is throwing, but still has not progressed enough to be throwing off a mound, Scioscia said. …The Angels are expected to recall another batch of players on Tuesday, following the end of Salt Lake’s season Monday. …The Angels moved Albert Pujols to the 60-day disabled list and designated Osmer Morales for assignment. They needed to create two spots on the 40-man roster, one for Farrell and one for Matt Shoemaker, who was activated from the 60-day disabled list.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Andrew Heaney, 8-8, 4.09) at Rangers (LHP Mike Minor, 10-7, 4.33), 5 p.m., Tuesday, Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM). Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Scioscia also didn’t seem concerned.“I think the most important thing is his elbow felt great,” Scioscia said Monday. “He felt nothing in his elbow, which is the most important thing. His back was a little stiff. He took the ball off his ring finger, which was a little sore after the game.”Ohtani said his back and finger — which was hurt when he reflexively tried to barehand a comebacker — both felt “fine.” He also said that he felt neither would prevent him from being able to hit. He was not in the lineup to hit on Monday, which is standard procedure for the day after he pitches.After missing much of the summer rehabbing a grade 2 sprain of his ulnar collateral ligament, Ohtani returned to the mound on Sunday and threw 49 pitches. He had been scheduled for 55 to 60, but the back and finger issues ended his outing a little early.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Ohtani’s next turn on the mound would be on Sunday in Chicago, assuming all goes as planned.Related Articleslast_img read more
