The architects have “listened” to the existing building carefully: restoring the original walls using traditional techniques, while developing the interior as an independent project which allowed the redistribution of the inner spaces in a functional manner.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloRESTORATION AND SUSTAINABILITY The vision of the restoration as a quest for sustainability has been pursued in the broadest sense of the term, including technical, economic and energy issues. The aim was to create a lightweight structure, that has a character of reversibility, built with high-tech systems, which allowed a period of prefabrication, and streamlining of the implementation and installation phases.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloA NEW LARCH SKELETON In the restoration of the Ceschi house, a new structure was designed to fit inside the existing empty walls: a skeleton of laminated larch wood which extends the full height of the building, defining its distribution and establishing a collaborative relationship with the container characterized by an outstanding anti-seismic performance.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloThe new structure makes no alterations to the exterior load-bearing walls, but replaces the structural function of existing internal partitions with a lightweight frame system. All the elements which make up the structure were prefabricated, enabling a high level of precision in survey, design and execution.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloNATURAL MATERIALS AND LOW ENERGYFor the thermal insulation of the building, which has been classified as class A, a system of insulating panels were set inside the existing masonry walls, consisting of multilayer insulation laid on a wood and compressed earth panels.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloThese compressed earth panels have high thermal mass and regulate the humidity of the internal environment, making a marked improvement in the heating and cooling performance of the building, and the level of comfort and well-being of its inhabitants.Save this picture!© Alessandra ChemolloDAYLIGHT AND TRANSPARENCY Save this picture!PlanIn the interior glass is used for its diffusive character both on structural solutions and for interior design: the natural light which flows from the outside is filtered by both horizontal and vertical glass surfaces, creating a sense of continuity between the spaces.Project gallerySee allShow less’Santiago Calatrava: The Quest for Movement’ ExhibitionArticlesCLIC Headquarters / WILCOTER ArchitectsArticles Share Architects: traverso-vighy architetti Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/249566/casa-ceschi-traverso-vighy Clipboard ArchDaily Casa Ceschi / traverso-vighy architetti “COPY” Casa Ceschi / traverso-vighy architettiSave this projectSaveCasa Ceschi / traverso-vighy architetti CopyAbout this officetraverso-vighy architettiOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesVicenzaHousesItalyPublished on July 02, 2012Cite: “Casa Ceschi / traverso-vighy architetti” 02 Jul 2012.

Reporters Without Borders makes urgent appeal to all sides in the war to help find nine missing journalists

first_img Organisation News Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan News Follow the news on Iraq On the eighth day of the war, Reporters Without Borders said it was “veryworried” about the fate of nine journalists who are missing, some of themfor nearly a week. It called on US and British forces as well as the Iraqigovernment to make every effort to help find them urgently. to go further December 28, 2020 Find out more News Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa March 28, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders makes urgent appeal to all sides in the war to help find nine missing journalists February 15, 2021 Find out more Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders called today on all sides in the Iraq war to help find nine journalists who are missing in the war zone, some of them since the start of the eight-day conflict.”We are very worried and we urge the Iraqi, US and British authorities to make every effort to help find them,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “Confusion on the battlefield and the ongoing fighting must not be used as an excuse for Iraqi and US-British forces to ignore the safety of reporters and cameramen who have come to cover a war that has already cost lives among the media.”A cameraman for the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera disappeared today in Basra (southern Iraq) after the four-man crew he was with came under fire from British tanks. The crew had rented a civilian vehicle to go to where food relief was being distributed by the Iraqi authorities and was preparing to film the arrival of the British tanks when the tanks opened fire. Three of the crew fled on foot but the cameraman’s equipment was to heavy to carry easily and he hid. The station has not heard of him since.A team of four journalists from the British TV station ITN came under fire on 22 March in Basra, probably from US-British forces. One of them, Terry Lloyd, 51, was killed and two others – French cameraman Fred Nérac and Lebanese interpreter Hussein Osman — are still missing.The Al-Arabiya TV station has been without word since 22 March of three of its team – Syrian reporter Wael Awad, cameraman Talal Fawzi al-Masri and technician Ali Hassan Safa, both Lebanese. They were travelling between Al-Zubair and Nassiriya when the station lost contact with them.The Pentagon said it knew of no journalists killed or wounded in the area. Al-Arabiya told Reporters Without Borders it was not sure if they were actually “embedded” with the US army’s 101st Airborne Division. Centcom military headquarters in Qatar said the three were not on its list of embedded journalists but said they may have been accredited by the army in Kuwait.The station is regularly broadcasting photos of the three in the hope they will be recognised by Iraqis who will come forward with news about them.Two journalists from the US daily paper Newsday, Moises Saman and Matthew McAllester, were seen for the last time at the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad on the evening of 24 March. The Iraqi authorities were preparing to deport them and other foreign journalists for entering the country only on tourist visas, according to an Italian journalist Reporters Without Borders talked to.Several special correspondents in the city said the authorities had wanted to expel them by road in a bus, probably to Damascus. Freelance French-American photographer Molly Bingham, also reported to be among those to be deported, is missing too.Two journalists have been killed since the start of the war – ITN’s Terry Lloyd and Australian cameraman Paul Moran, of Australia’s ABC TV, who was reporting in Kurdistan (northern Iraq). At least two other journalists have been wounded.

Letter to president about poisonous relations between government and press

first_imgNews RSF_en Follow the news on Burundi to go further Organisation The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention August 11, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Letter to president about poisonous relations between government and press News Help by sharing this information November 27, 2020 Find out morecenter_img Reports BurundiAfrica Reporters Without Borders wrote to Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza today voicing concern about the pernicious state of relations between his government and the media, and the alarming number of press freedom violations during his first year in office.“The press plays a stabilising role in democracies by channelling and giving structure to the debates taking place within society,” the letter said. “The independent media’s work of investigating and reporting may annoy a government but that does not mean that it destabilises or disturbs the peace. But attacks on the press can undermine a government’s credibility and destabilise it, inasmuch as they give the impression that it is trying to take revenge on its detractors or to hide the facts from the public.”The letter continued: “We believe your government is just casting oil on the fire of a complex and unstable situation by attacking the press with the means of repression at its disposal. For this reason, we call on you to defuse the situation by putting an end to the threats and harassment of the independent press and by trying to build a new relationship with Burundi’s journalists.”Noting the climate of fear among journalists in recent weeks, the letter cited reports from Bujumbura that the authorities have drawn up a list of names of people supposedly involved in two alleged plots against the government. The list includes five journalists working for three independent radio stations, who are identified by their first names: Alexis, Serge, Bob, Gabriel and Etienne.In its letter, Reporters Without Borders also condemned the verbal intimidation by both officials and anonymous sources that has been reported by journalists investigating about alleged coup attempts. Just yesterday, the prosecutor general accused journalists of “disturbing order and security in this matter.” If they continued to investigate, “it could prove fatal for them,” he said.Information minister Karenga Ramadhani said on Public African Radio (RPA) in late June that he was “determined” to rein in journalists who behaved irresponsibly. “We will be obliged to use force within the limits of the law,” he warned.Reporters Without Borders mentioned another episode that has helped to poison relations between the press and the authorities. Some 20 journalists were held hostage by the police for more than seven hours on 17 April when they went to a news conference at the home of Mathias Basabose, a politician who had just been ousted from the ruling party.The organisation also referred to the plight of Aloys Kabura, the Kayanza correspondent of the Burundian Press Agency (ABP), who has been held in Ngozi prison since 31 May for comments he made in a bar that were critical of the government’s behaviour towards the press. A judicial decision on his case has been pending since 28 July.
