In a previously impacted 1,019.54 m² plot with frontal and lateral constraints, a fragmented building was proposed consisting of three volumes that responded to three main factors. The first one, to the trapezoidal geometry of the property, the second one to the surviving trees of the work previously done on the site, and the third one to enhance the views looking out from the property.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeThe 4 meters difference between the street level and the site level already present on site was used as an excuse to be able to build four levels instead of the three that are usually allowed which greatly increased the value of the project.  To the front, a permeable paving stone plaza functions as a parking space and allows rainwater to infiltrate the soil below. A narrow bridge connects the plaza to the main building thus creating an interior lightwell/patio that carefully respects the existing trees and illuminates and ventilates the adjacent apartments in the lower levels.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeThe proposal is divided into 3 volumes, the two side volumes are symmetrical and the central one opens like a fan towards the jungle. The exterior facade is discreet and solid to be able to maintain a certain level of privacy towards the street and to soften the rigidity of the walls a block-lattice was placed in the staircase; This at night is intended to function as a lamp illuminated with warm light. The rear façade is made up of balconies that end in a narrow slab edge.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeSave this picture!© Tamara UribeThe natural material finish was left untouched so that the building ages with dignity and with as little maintenance as possible. A strict logic was used for material placement using only one direction for concrete and the other for cinder block giving each hierarchy and purity. On the lower level, a long rectangular pool with views to the jungle was proposed, while the private amenities were placed at the roof garden level. The side units have stairs to the outside to avoid an overhead structure and save space inside.Save this picture!© Tamara UribeBelow the parking lots is the mechanical room and water tanks with the necessary preparations to harvest and purify rainwater. The geometry of the building itself allows for each unit to have its own corridor, thanks to this, and as per client request, the apartments have 2 doors, one for main access and another to a room that the owner can rent independently as a hotel room. The central unit, having the room facing the jungle, has a wooden lattice door to control the access to the terrace in case the second bedroom gets rented.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Tamara UribeProject gallerySee allShow lessInternational Graduation Projects AwardStudent CompetitionsCall for Entries: RE-DRAW.03: Fallingwater / Experimental Architecture RepresentationIdeasProject locationAddress:Carretera Federal Cancún – Tulúm, Zona Costera, Km 256.3, 77780 Akumal, Q.R., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Tesco invites round-up donations at the till for two charities

Tesco has recently confirmed it is scrapping its 5p per bag charge and offering 10p bags for life instead.Fiona Cincotta, a senior market analyst at City Index, said of the rounding-up campaign: “This technique is a great way for customers to be able to donate to charity in an affordable way. It’s a great way to reinforce Tesco’s brand message of “every penny counts” and that’s exactly what charities need. This is another great follow on from their plastic bag policy which is to benefit local community projects. Tesco are really upping their CSR with this move and I think it’s something that consumers will back heavily”.WATCH: The Great Tesco Walk[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ocuhz9U2BeY[/youtube]  343 total views,  1 views today  344 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis54 Tesco invites round-up donations at the till for two charitieslast_img read more

As he noted on the night he was elected in February, Deputy Quinlivan said that he was saddened that his late father could not have witnessed his 10,000 plus haul of votes to land him a seat at the 32nd Dail – “he would have been proud”.To the job at hand and Limerick city’s newest TD had more than a sense of purpose about his manner, as he was clearly in Dublin not just to make up the numbers.Setting the emotion of the day briefly to one side, Deputy Quinlivan said that “we wanted to be in Government and that was the platform we ran on” but he accepted that unless his party was the lead group in any Government, “supporting Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael is obviously not something we were elected to do”.The former Sinn Fein councillor said that his party was in talks with other minor groupings to form an alternative Government “but the numbers seem to be suggesting a Fianna Fáil Fine Gael Government.”Noting that a Sinn Fein Ard Fheis was scheduled for the end of next month, Deputy Quinlivan said there was unlikely to be a softening of that stance and that he just couldn’t see them being in Government with either party.“That’s not what we were elected on and it may come as a surprise to some people but we keep our promises”, deputy Quinlivan said who stated that “we wouldn’t be a second fiddle to Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael”[email protected] TAGSDaillimerickMaurice QuinlivanSinn Fein Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads last_img read more

Flightpath Biosciences Launches via Illumina Accelerator to Conduct Largest Clinical Biomarker Study in Lyme…

first_img Flightpath Biosciences Launches via Illumina Accelerator to Conduct Largest Clinical Biomarker Study in Lyme Disease By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 WhatsApp TAGS  Twitter Twitter Facebook Pinterestcenter_img WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleAustralian Open on Wednesday: Serena Williams in 2nd roundNext articleJND Legal Administration Appoints Shandarese Garr as VP of Operations Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest BERKELEY, Calif., Feb. 9, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Flightpath Biosciences, a life sciences company, launched today claiming a spot in Illumina Accelerator’s second global class to develop diagnostics and microbiome-targeted therapeutics to treat rare pathogen-driven diseases. The company has operated in stealth since its founding in mid-2019 and has built a pipeline of drug candidates for a wide range of diseases, starting with acute and Persistent Lyme Disease (PLD). Flightpath is led by an experienced team eager to execute deep data discovery and drive a pipeline of narrow-spectrum, targeted therapeutics into the clinicCompany aims to combine deep genomic sequencing, metabolomics and immune-cell profiling with next generation machine-learning approaches to solve multiple pathogen-driven diseases and syndromesCompany seeks to expand team to support operational acceleration and development efforts “Today, more than ever, we understand that pathogen-driven epidemics like Lyme disease need to be more easily and accurately diagnosed and more specifically treated with narrow-spectrum, targeted therapies to avoid the microbiome damage that occurs with broad-spectrum antibiotics,” said Matt Tindall, Flightpath Co-founder and CEO. Of the 476K patients diagnosed with acute Lyme disease each year in the U.S., most are treated with broad-spectrum antibiotics, but 10 to 20% endure debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, neurological complications, and myalgias after treatment, a condition known as Persistent Lyme disease (PLD). The etiology of PLD is not understood, and objective diagnostic tools are lacking. Interestingly, PLD symptoms overlap several diseases in which patients exhibit alterations in their microbiome. In a recent study, published in mBio (September 2020), Lewis et al determined that microbiome sequencing data alone were indicative of late-stage Lyme disease, which presents a potential, novel diagnostic tool for PLD. The authors found that patients with post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, a subset of PLD, had a distinct microbiome signature, allowing for an accurate classification of over 80% of analyzed cases. Importantly, this signature supports the validity of PLD and is the first potential biological diagnostic tool for the disease. “Our ability to analyze the microbiome, transcriptome and metabolome and identify disease signatures will give us new tools to unlock the potential of microbiome-based medicines in rare infectious diseases and potentially pathogen-driven cancers,” said Mark de Souza, Flightpath Co-founder and Executive Chairman. “We’re excited to get to work with the Illumina team and our world-class lab and academic partners to tackle this disease area with fresh perspectives, novel approaches and new data.” About Flightpath Biosciences Flightpath Biosciences is developing microbiome-targeted therapeutics and advanced biomarker-based diagnostics for the treatment of infectious diseases. Flightpath’s mission is to transform patient’s lives with medicines developed using a multidisciplinary approach to human and pathogen biology.
