The existing architecture, heterogeneous in style and typologies, has partially disrupted the historical identity of the village. The incomplete perimeter and lack of structure in the interior of the urban block participate to the poor appearance of the site. Compared to the rest of Flanders, the current building fabric of Hoeilaart shows a low density.Save this picture!IsometricThe project therefore aims to densify the building block while respecting the original identity of the village. Through this densification, the existing fragmented space will turn into into a qualitative and coherent whole. Closing and redefining the perimeter of the block will help reinforce this central area of the village.Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseA wide variety of typologies offers a qualitative range of dwellings. The outdoor space is designed as an extension of the bicycle and pedestrian network, while the inner green area is designed as a water garden referring to a historical stream.Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseThe project’s volumetry relates in a contemporary way to both historical and local urban qualities. The volumes, articulated with gable roofs, refer to the historical greenhouses of Hoeilaart, the Flemish town-square as well as to the archetype of the dwelling. The impact of the densification is limited: the volumes are kept low and compact, and don’t disturb the sightlines of local residents.Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: The Construction of AMO’s “Infinite Palace” for Prada in a 32-Second TimelapseArchitecture NewsEstúdios Capelinha / Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Borreweg, 1560 Hoeilaart, BelgiumLocation to be used only as a reference.

Mecca Bingo has launched a new national fundraising scheme with charity partner Whizz-Kidz that will turn peoples’ unwanted mobile phones into cash to support the independence of young wheelchair-users in local communities.‘Mobiles for Mobility’ asks that the public bring their old mobile phones into Mecca bingo clubs across the UK – with the money raised through recycling, funding powered and manual wheelchairs and other equipment via Whizz-Kidz.Simon Wykes, Managing Director for Mecca Bingo says: “The Charity partnership with Whizz-Kidz is something we’re really proud of at Mecca as the feedback from both team members and customers has been extremely positive. National campaigns such as Mobiles for Mobility are a great way to bring all of the clubs together to work towards a common goal but at the same time make a difference to the local communities in which we operate.”Ruth Owen, Chief Executive of Whizz-Kidz, added:“We are absolutely thrilled with the enthusiasm and inventiveness of all Mecca team and club members. In 2008 they raised over a quarter of a million pounds to support young wheelchair-users’ independence.“Disabled children stand virtually no chance of getting a powered wheelchair on the NHS. Through Mecca Bingo’s funding of powered and manual wheelchairs and training, more children now have the opportunities previously denied them. Please help us raise even more money to make real differences to young lives.”As part of the ongoing ‘Mecca Wheel Difference’ campaign, Mecca clubs across the UK raised over £286,000 in 2008.For more information contact Rob Dyson, Whizz-Kidz PR Manager on 020 77986103 or [email protected] Tagged with: corporate mobile phones Recycling Mobiles for Mobility: Mecca Bingo launches national fundraising initiative Howard Lake | 14 April 2009 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 45 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Speaking at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop, Dinneen noted he is confident that ethanol could stand up to the scrutiny provided that oil and other fuels were given equal and honest examination as well. Dinneen says – if you are going to do a ‘seed-to-wheels’ analysis of ethanol, that is fair enough. And – how about the war-to-wheels analysis of oil? But Dinneen is confident the RFS program will not come unraveled this year or even next year. The battle will be strung out in the courts. Still, he says, – it’s really important for the industry to know that the wolves are at the door. Dinneen made two points, first, we must obliterate whatever intellectual justification might still exist for corn-based ethanol among policy elites. And second, we must demonstrate to policy makers at the state and federal level that there is a political price to allowing ethanol policy to drive up the cost of food.

They carried a report from the government news agency Azertaj, accusing Turan of disinformation “These machinations demonstrate the determination of the authorities to discredit the country’s independent and opposition media in the run-up to legislative elections on 6 November“, said Reporters Without Borders.“We urge President Aliyev to restore all the key conditions for a return to genuine press freedom in this critical period,” it added.Pro-government media put out false news and information in May citing Gallup as the source. From 6-10 August, the premises of four opposition newspapers came under mob attack from members of the pro-government party, Yeni Azerbaijan, plainclothes police officers and Baku municipal officials.More recently, on 15 September, three grenades were found in the offices of opposition organisation, Yeni Fikir, within the premises of opposition daily Azadlig. The organisation’s members are convinced the munitions were planted there in a bid to compromise them.

Reporters Without Borders is aware of 14 being injured in a protest in Mexico City on 20 November, in addition to the seven injured in Guerrero’s capital, Chilpancingo, on 11 November.Some journalists were directly targeted while others were collateral victims. Both police and demonstrators were responsible for the violence against journalists. The accounts of three of the victims follows.Eduardo Verdugo, a photographer with the Associated Press“I was getting ready to send some photos at the end of the demonstration when I saw the police arrest a group of youths sitting in front of the (national) palace. I followed them (…) but a civilian staff officer pushed me and federal police officers, who I recognized by their uniforms, asked me for my cameras. Although I identified myself as a properly accredited journalist, they threw me to the ground. One of them nearly strangled me and I told him I could hardly breathe. I finally let go of my cameras. After ordering me to kneel, they left with my cameras. I reported this to another federal police officer, pointing out those responsible, but he ignored me.”Bruises and lacerations are still visible on Verdugo’s neck.Eduardo Miranda, a photographer with the magazine Proceso Miranda said he was taking photos on Zócalo Square at the end of the demonstration when he realized the situation was degenerating. The metal barriers restraining the protesters were overturned and the police began throwing back the objects that the demonstrators were throwing. As Miranda began to take photos, he saw a federal police officer throw an object at him. It hit his right leg, which began to bleed (…) A colleague took him to a medical centre where he was told he would need surgery.María Idalia Gómez, coordinator of the Eje Central website“I was taking photos of the demonstration with my mobile phone near the national palace when a group of masked people in civilian dress attacked me and threw me to the ground. I tried to protect my equipment as I fell and ended up breaking by left wrist. I’m sure I was deliberately targeted because I’d been seen taking photos of the clashes between the police and demonstrators.”These accounts show how violence has become routine for journalists covering demonstrations. Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns these attacks and urges the authorities to investigate them thoroughly, including those for which the police themselves were responsible. The Mexican state must guarantee the safety of journalists, who are performing a key function in the general interest.Mexico is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
