The project is a synthesis of the couple’s past and future, interests, and passions. The house is conceptualized as a single, dark, rectangular volume. One corner, the garage, is broken off to create an entry courtyard. A singular, smooth column of Black Locust supports an inviting entry canopy. The house and garage are intentionally pulled apart to infuse a bit of the wild into daily routines. While the exterior volume is wrapped in black square-edged vertical metal siding, the courtyard is lined with a vertical rain screen of American Black Locust. Local stones, clustered plantings and swaying birch flow through this courtyard: in essence, nature wins.Save this picture!© Tom RossiterThe heart of the home is a central volume of American Walnut. All rooms feed off this hub and are drawn to it, revolving around the warmth of the material. Here, the couple walks on continuous white oak floors. Sitting comfortably in the living room or standing casually by the kitchen island, the view drifts out through large windows to rest on the cadence of the seasons, color spreading through the autumn leaves or dappled light on fresh snow. From the painting/spinning studio, the couple also enjoys views past the courtyard birches into the surroundings.Save this picture!© Tom RossiterSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Tom RossiterThis house is a place where the residents continue to nurture their land and build strong roots, with a focus on sustainability. They are actively restoring the ravine from invasive species and personally plant no-mow meadows. Raised beds hold a vegetable garden that they maintain themselves. They also tap the onsite maples for syrup, boiled down in a fire from cordwood sourced on-site. The firepit of brick gabions is created from the rubble of a previous house on the site that burned down. The millworker who fabricated the walnut casework delivered a live-edge walnut dining table, created from a felled tree the couple rescued from their farm in Galena, Illinois.Save this picture!© Tom RossiterProject gallerySee allShow lessBridge-Pavilion / SpaceStationSelected ProjectsHefei North City Central Park Primary And Middle School / Shanghai Tianhua Architect…Selected Projects Share Photographs:  Tom Rossiter Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project United States Structural Engineer: Year:  MEP Engineer: Builder: Goldberg General Contracting Landscape: AA Service Company Heating and Cooling Kettelkamp & Kettelkamp Landscape Architecture “COPY” Photographslast_img read more

The absence of these tenets has led to blatant continuation of prejudice on the basis of religion and gender, he states.The plea avers that Indians from all religions are governed by their own set of personal laws which are against set out constitutional ethos.”existing personal laws relating to succession and inheritance are not only against constitutional ethos of gender justice, gender equality & dignity of women but also brazenly offend Articles 14, 15, 21 of the Constitution and International Conventions,” the plea reads.Upadhyay’s plea states that even after 73 years of independence & 70 years of becoming socialist secular democratic republic, Centre has not enacted a ‘gender neutral and religion neutral uniform law of succession and inheritance’ in spirit of the Articles 14, 15, 21, 44 and International Conventions and that “it is necessary to reiterate that Articles 14 guarantees equality before the law and equal protection of laws and Article 15 prohibits the State from treating men and women differently unless it can show reasonable basis for the classification it has created”.The petitioner justifies his prayer seeking uniform grounds of succession and inheritance by stating that implementation of the same shall strengthen Constitutional ethos as laid down in Part III & IV of the Constitution, adding that top court has reiterated the need for Uniform Civil Code in catena of judgments such as Shah Bano, Sarla Mudgal, Jose Paulo Coutinho, ABC v. State NCT of Delhi, John Vallamattom, Ahmedabad Women Action Group & Jorden Diengdeh. “Furthermore, on 26.11.1949, we have resolved to constitute a sovereign socialist secular democratic republic, and to secure its citizens: Justice, social economic and political; Liberty of thoughts, expression, belief, faith, worship; Equality of status & opportunity; and promote fraternity assuring dignity of individual and unity and integrity of the nation. But, despite above eloquent provisions, State has failed to provide ‘uniform grounds of succession & inheritance’,” the plea reads.Further to this, it is stated that a Gender gap in property ownership is the most important reason for gender inequity and thus, there is no logic behind providing separate succession & inheritance schemes on the basis of gender & religion.”2005 amendment Act which claims to be progressive with respect to coparcenary right, grossly overlooked the fact that the primary scheme of succession under 1956 Act is manifestly arbitrary,” plea reads.Elaborating on Goa’s Uniform Civil Code, the petitioner states that State is “a shining example” of its implementation.Apropos this, the prayer seeks removal of the anomalies in the grounds of succession and inheritance and make them gender neutral, religion neutral and uniform for all citizens.Alternatively, a prayer for declaration that the discriminatory grounds of succession and inheritance are violative of Articles 14, 15, 21 of the Constitution has been sought.It has also been contended that alternatively, the court may direct the Law Commission of India to examine the Laws relating to succession & inheritance of the developed countries and International Conventions in this regard and prepare a report on ‘uniform grounds of succession and inheritance’ for all citizens in spirit of Articles 14, 15, 21, 44 of the Constitution within 3 months.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more

DSME gets $400m to build ROK Navy submarine rescue ship

first_imgSouth Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received a 444 billion-won (approx. US$400 million) contract to build a new submarine rescue vessel for the Republic of Korea Navy.The detailed design and construction contract comes 12 months after South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced that the design phase for the 5,200-ton ship had been completed.The project of developing a new submarine rescue ship, dubbed ASR-II, was initiated in November 2015 together with South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).The South Korean Navy already operates a smaller, 3,200-ton submarine rescue ship Cheonghaejin which was commissioned in 1995.According to DAPA, ASR-II will be a more potent ship capable of rescuing distressed submariners from depths of up to 500 meters. An embarked remotely operated vehicle will be able to descend to 1000 meters below the surface. Compared to the ROKS Cheonghaejin, which can only operate in waves below 2 meters, the ASR-II will tolerate more adverse conditions.According to a DAPA release from 2017, the new ship will have a center well through which deep sea rescue vessels will be deployed. The center well allows for a broader scope of submarine support operations in addition to enabling the ROK Navy to conduct underwater exploration. The Cheonghaejin relies on an A-frame to deploy DSRVs.DSME expects to complete all work on the new ship and deliver it to the navy by 2022.Photo: DSME View post tag: ASR-II Share this article Photo: Photo: DSME View post tag: submarine rescue ship View post tag: ROK Navy View post tag: DSMElast_img read more
