The house is located close to the abasto market, transformed today into a commercial center. Like the market, the house where the venturini family presently lives, has homed a variety of different uses. At the time of the construction the house functioned as a house for rent. It`s organization responded to a very common typology in the city of buenos aires. small houses were located towards the interior of the block, where as the one belonging to the owner was the facade to the street. The devaluation of this area of the city towards the middle of last century brought about the occupation of the main house, being transformed into a tenement house.Save this picture!© Cristobal PalmaOur intervention can be summarized in three actions: extraction, redescription and addition. the first of them meant the recovery of the original spatial structure. The second phase of the project was simply based on labeling again each of the spaces in order to adapt the existing structure to a contemporary way of life. Finally, the last action was based in two precise additions. The first of them was the materialization of a mezzanine floor, which allowed to simultaneously cover a yoga room in the basement and to give support to an exterior expansion for the living room area. At last, the construction of a light structure on the roof, for multiple uses, made visible the optimism that follows the revaluation of the city as a way of new crowning for the property.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessMichael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA) Chosen as Landscape Architect for Menil Co…ArticlesBarranco No. 436 / JSªSelected Projects Share Photographs Year:  “COPY” Venturini House / Adamo FaidenSave this projectSaveVenturini House / Adamo FaidenSave this picture!© Cristobal PalmaHouses•Buenos Aires, Argentina Venturini House / Adamo Faiden ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396575/venturini-house-adamo-faiden Clipboard ArchDaily Architects: Adamo Faiden Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Cristobal Palma+ 17 Share “COPY” Houses 2012 Argentina Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396575/venturini-house-adamo-faiden Clipboardlast_img

Standing at 2750 metres above sea level, in the outskirts of La Calera, Cundinamarca, Casa 5 enjoys the unbeatable long views of the surrounding mountains and valley, and the presence of the greenery and the lake that touch its garden.Save this picture!© Kevin PerdomoThe weather here is somewhat cold all year round, so the house was designed to respond to its environment by harnessing the solar radiation during the day through its large windows, warming up the different areas, while at the same time isolating itself from the floor and exterior through double walls that allow to keep the heat inside during the night.Save this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe house appears closed towards the street access, placing car park and service areas here in order to ensure privacy. Once the main entrance door is crossed, the visitor meets a wide and transparent central patio that organizes internal circulation, fills up the spaces with natural sunlight and becomes the heart of the activity within the house. Its wide and frameless windows allow the presence of the greenery to be felt everywhere.Save this picture!© Kevin PerdomoThe more public areas are placed in the south wing of the house, closer to the entrance. They end up in the dining room and double height living room, which enjoy the closer views to the lake and garden. The bedrooms and more private areas are placed in the north wing, the master bedroom facing towards the water. On the second floor there are the two working areas for the owners, one on each wing, which enjoy the long views independently.Save this picture!© Kevin PerdomoThe presence of the patio and the large windows, along with lightwells in the service and more private areas, allows the sun, the light and the greenery to be felt throughout the house.

The “Fluffy Cow” Phenomenon Baffles Cattlemen, Interests Consumers

first_imgThe fluffy cow phenomenon has some good points and some danger zones. On the positive side, it is getting consumers interested in livestock and actually willing to ask questions about the animals.  Often these questions are directed at the young people who are showing the cattle which gives them the chance to explain how they take care of their animals, how important it is to their family and their future, and how much hard work it is. In addition to being a great message to deliver to consumers, it also gives some much needed recognition to these talented and hard-working young people, many of whom will have life-long careers in agriculture. SHARE Home Commentary The “Fluffy Cow” Phenomenon Baffles Cattlemen, Interests Consumers Facebook Twitter The “Fluffy Cow” Phenomenon Baffles Cattlemen, Interests Consumers I have been a long time observer of the cultural gap between farm and non-farm folks. This gap, actually it is more like a gulf or in some cases a chasm, is a totally different worldview.  It involves language, experience, fashion, food preferences, and humor.  It still amazes me that we can all be members of the same society, in many cases even neighbors, yet are worlds apart.  While this is true for all of agriculture, it is more evident in the cattle business. When it comes to livestock, especially cattle, there is barely a common frame of reference. I offer as evidence the current internet and social media phenomena known as the fluffy cow. I have seen some growing resentment from serious cattle people who view this whole fluffy cow thing as trivial nonsense. Most cattle folks that I have known who are serious about livestock are just that: serious about their livestock. Imagine, after you have spent half a year getting your animals ready for show, drive 500 miles, load them out of the trailer in the middle of the night, spend half a day grooming them and then some tattooed and pierced person shows up and says, “Hey, man, where are the fluffy cows?”  Some cattle folks are worried the fluffy cow craze will give people the wrong impression of cattle. Marybeth Feutz, a Southern Indiana Farmwife, wrote in a blog post on fluffy cows that these are not pets, “One very important thing to remember about cattle (fluffy or not) — they are very cute when they are calves.  But they do grow up. Every one of our adult cows weighs over 1300 pounds. An adult bull can weigh 2000 pounds or more. Even these cute fluffy bulls grow into big, 2000 pound animals. I don’t care how ‘tame’ an animal is, once he gets that big, there should be no trusting him.” Iowa cattleman Matt Lautner inadvertently started the whole thing when a photo of one of his beasts, Texas Tornado, went viral on the internet and the phrase “fluffy cow” started showing up on Twitter. Despite the fact Texas Tornado is a bull, Matt seized the chance to convert the “fluffy cow” phenomenon into a marketing opportunity, creating the Facebook page Fluffy Cows R Us. Within a few days, the page had notched up 24,910 likes and currently has more than 30,000 fans. Matt has been careful to remind people that the animals — a mixture of Angus, Chianina, Maine-Anjou and Shorthorn breeds — might look cute, but they are not pets. Well, relax cowboys and cowgirls, like most internet crazes, fluffy cows probably will not last long. After the county and state fair season, most consumers are not likely to come looking for fluffy cows.  It is not typical to see many non-farm folks at the Western Stock Show or the North American in Louisville. And this is most likely a good thing since, before too long, PETA will start claiming fluffing an animal’s hair is cruelty and HSUS will start a petition to prevent the practice.  The sooner the fluffy cow craze goes away the better. While it does get consumers interested in the livestock industry, it also shows them a portion of the livestock sector they do not have the context to understand. Livestock shows are for the purpose of evaluating animals for either their meat or their semen. Both are aspects of the livestock sector most consumers really don’t want to know much about.  Let’s hope fluffy cows will soon go the way of other internet phenomena like the dancing baby.By Gary Truittcenter_img The sudden consumer fascination with fluffy cows has had an interesting development. This summer, 4-H youth and others working the livestock show circuit are playing up the fluffy cow look.  People who would normally not venture near the livestock barns at a county or state fair are stampeding (pardon the pun) to the cattle barn looking for fluffy cows. Some county fairs this year even used fluffy cows in their promotional material. For those of you who are not on facebook, twitter, YouTube or other on-line social media channels, a bit of history is in order.  The term fluffy cows was started by consumers. It refers to cattle that have been prepared for the show ring. The animal’s hair is made to “fluff” out give the animal a larger more solid appearance. This is not a new thing but has been part of showing cattle for a long time. Fluffy cows are not a new breed of cattle or the result of genetic engineering. By Gary Truitt – Jul 28, 2013 On the negative side, the reason people are so enamored with fluffy cows is because they think they are cute. I call this the Bambi syndrome.  We need to make consumers understand that fluffy cows are not cute, docile pets.  We must help them connect the dots between fluffy cows and T-Bone steak.  As one shocked consumer responded when being told about fluffy cows, “So, wait. If they’re getting primped for shows … that means the fluffy cows are going to be auctioned off to the highest bidder? They’re getting all fancied up just be sold to be eaten?”  As Lautner Farms explains it, the intricate beauty routine “is all in an effort to earn the attention of a judge, who evaluates the animals — not just for the presentation of their hair, but for other merits like carcass quality (for market animals) or breeding traits (for heifers and bulls).” While it is great that more people walk the barns or wander into a livestock show, they need to come out with a better understanding of what they saw besides just a “fluffy cute cow.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleOptimal Weather Contributing to High-yielding ForagesNext articleSoybean Advocates and Influencers Meet in Indianapolis Gary Truittlast_img read more

Doing the business with people attached

first_img Comments are closed. In the worrying, but heart-warming Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, Scroogetries to reassure his one-time commercial partner that his success in businesswas all that could be expected of him. Marley, ghostly and in chains, answersthat “mankind was his business”, a business that he had almost completelyignored. As we move towards another Christmas, and a new year, these words have neverbeen more relevant. Mankind is our business. People are our business. All change in human society happens on an individual basis. One by one byone. We have to see the benefits before we will change our behaviour. It’s a human trait that can be frustrating for politicians and for managerswho sometimes want to be able to change behaviour as easily as writing companyprocedures or new laws. They struggle to know how best to spend the time that money can buy. Theyfind that the time that is available comes with people attached to it. Oh No!People with ideas, hopes, prejudices, anxieties, and preferences. People whoneed to believe in something before they will try and need to understand howthey fit in before they can succeed in working with others. As David Smith, people director at Asda, explained to me about releasingpotential: “This people stuff is difficult. If we want to be trusted, wehave to listen, and change based on what our people tell us. To gain loyalty wehave to remove status, and this is personally unattractive to people in power.And yet it’s the only way – which is why so few companies have made the journeythat we have.” So much has changed. Technology has become human sized – attempting toenhance, rather than replace, human capabilities. Science has becomehuman-focused – revealing our wonderful interdependence and limitlesspotential. It would be wise for you who are charged with understanding the humancondition and human potential to make some new years resolutions. Lead yourcolleagues to the conclusion you have reached – that mankind is your business.That unshrinking the potential of your people is the edge your organisation islooking for. My research has revealed that normal, ordinary people can design their ownjobs, determine their own priorities, vote for who to hire, fire, and how toreward the teams; they can formulate strategy, and create innovations, new products,and even new companies. The most influential people in your profession havemade it clear that there are extraordinary people inside all organisations justwaiting to get out. And you need them. People are infinitely expandable and they are much more fun than machines atthe Christmas party – with the exception, of course, of the photocopier andthose sexy new video phones.
