This is a small house designed for outdoor living, with Living Spaces that engage the Garden, blurring the boundary between Exterior and Interior, and engaging the ground surrounding it and opening to the sky.Save this picture!© Jeff Ong / PostRAIN ProductionsThis House affirms the vibrancy of the design strategies of the modern houses of Los Angeles. What is new is that now we can build in a truly sustainable way, with cool roofs, dual glazed low iron crystal clear glazing expanses, new structural steel codes and advances in engineering that allow for even thinner overhanging roofs, thick slumped stone walls can be replaced with patterned walls with more efficient insulation and usable cavities.Save this picture!© Jeff Ong / PostRAIN ProductionsReenergizing and renewing the Modern Living Promise, the new House opens the interiors to the outdoors and the views: it’s an Open House, engaged with its garden, exterior spaces and the interiors merge in an attempt to bring us together again with our natural surroundings.Save this picture!© Jeff Ong / PostRAIN ProductionsThe Contemporary design echoes mid-20th Century horizontal lines (the famous ‘planes of Id’) that refer to the endless Los Angeles Horizon (only if interrupted by the vertical plane where the SmartTV screen is embedded). Thus this small house makes attempts to critically engage the urbanity of the the city it belongs to.Save this picture!© Jeff Ong / PostRAIN ProductionsThe House is a composition of horizontal volumes and a void interpreted as a garden anchored by a tree. The House is Split into two volumes perpendicular to each other, with a small court in between. A Specimen Tree is the centerpiece of this court, growing through the roof joining the two volumes of the house, growing through a rectangular Oculus, and soaring towards the sky.Save this picture!DiagramThe volumetric composition of the House is brought together by the continuous Roof/canopy (=Horizon). Thus the House defines Los Angeles as a city made of volumetric fragments and voids coalesced by the endless horizon. This House reflects the urban condition of Los Angeles: an endless Horizon that paradoxically brings together the divergent geometries of Los Angeles’ urban sprawl.Save this picture!© Jeff Ong / PostRAIN ProductionsProject gallerySee allShow lessSasaki Wins Competition to Reshape Shanghai’s Suzhou CreekArchitecture NewsSe Yoon Park Uses Architectural Techniques to Symbolize Life in SculpturesArchitecture News Share Dana Benson Construction CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United States Photographs:  Jeff Ong / PostRAIN Productions Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Little Tomato Landscapes Manufacturers: C.R.

Canada backs doctor-assisted suicide

first_img Sharing is caring! Tweet Share 120 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img The court unanimously struck down the current banCanada’s Supreme Court has ruled that doctors may help patients who have severe and incurable medical conditions to die, overturning a 1993 ban.In a unanimous decision, the court said the law impinged on Canadians’ rights.The case was brought by a civil rights group on behalf of two women, Kay Carter and Gloria Taylor, with degenerative diseases. Both have since died.The government now has a year to rewrite its law on assisted suicide.If it does not, the current law will be struck down.Assisted suicide is legal in several European countries and a few US states.In Canada is it illegal to counsel, aid or abet a suicide, and the offence carries up to 14 years in prison.Previous attempts by MP Steven Fletcher on assisted suicide legislation failed in the House of Commons“This is one incredible day,” said Grace Pastine of British Columbia Civil Liberties Association, which brought the case.“Physician-assisted dying is now recognised for what it is – a medical service that brings an end, for some individuals, to unbearable suffering.”In the ruling, the justices wrote they “did not agree that the existential formulation of the right to life requires an absolute prohibition on assistance in dying, or that individuals cannot ‘waive’ their right to life”.The court limited doctor-assisted suicide to patients who are consenting adults, who have a incurable but not necessarily terminal disease that causes “enduring and intolerable suffering”.The justices also argued the total ban on doctor-assisted suicide “deprives some individuals of life, as it has the effect of forcing some individuals to take their own lives prematurely, for fear that they would be incapable of doing so when they reached the point where suffering was intolerable”.Dropping the ban was opposed by religious groups in Canada and the issue has divided the disability-rights community in the country.Lawyers for Kay Carter and Gloria Taylor had argued that the ban discriminated against them, as they could not take their own life without the help of their doctors.Taylor, who had Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, died in 2012.Carter had spinal stenosis, a progressive compression of the spinal cord. She travelled with her family to Switzerland in 2010 to end her life. HealthLifestyle Canada backs doctor-assisted suicide by: BBC News – February 9, 2015 Sharelast_img read more
