The hope of this client is to live in a house just like a renovated warehouse. The type of houses is diversified into various kinds, and such a house is prevalent on the ground of financial terms. However, there’re problems as regarding heat insulation capacity and construction to convert a warehouse into a house. As a result, it costs the same amount as new construction. Therefore, we built a new house like a renovated warehouse pursuing diversified and productive open spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of ALTS Design OfficeThe ground sits between old residential area and new land for sale in lots. And it’s an area enclosed by residential roads. We made a building like an existing warehouse at first, and designed it carefully as if the client renovated it. We made a white-cube inside the building and put rooms needed privacy inside the cube. In doing so, we valued the connection of the inside and the outside. We made a splitlevel house, and dare to make non-exclusive rooms on floor planning. We created open spaces so that the client can arrange them to suit the lifestyle.Save this picture!Courtesy of ALTS Design OfficeWe could take account the durability and the environmental burden because of new construction. In addition to that, we could add temporal complexity as if it were an existing building. Then we hope that the client lives a spiritually affluent life in this house adding depth to it.Save this picture!Courtesy of ALTS Design OfficeProject gallerySee allShow lessYinzhou City Investment Office Building Renovation / DC ALLIANCESelected ProjectsEducational Park Zenufaná / FP arquitecturaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeALTS Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseRenovationJapanPublished on October 06, 2015Cite: “Ishibe House / ALTS Design Office ” 06 Oct 2015.

Consultation stations

first_imgMost employers are keenly aware of their obligations to consult with workforce representatives in the context of “mass” redundancies. In broad terms, these apply to the redundancies of 20 or more employees at one site within a period of 90 days. Employers will usually have in mind the statutory minimum periods for such consultation: 30 days where fewer than 100 employees are affected or 90 days otherwise. However, reliance on the statutory minimum can act as a distraction, with employers falling disastrously short of what the law requires. Cranwick’s caseThe case of Cranwick Country Food is a case in point. The firm operated two sausage-making factories. However, from the middle of 2003, Cranwick’s chief executive wanted to create one new super-site, which would result in mass redundancies. By January 5, 2004, Cranwick’s bid for the new site had been accepted. Yet despite having reasonably firm proposals for the move, Cranwick decided to wait before beginning consultation with the workforce at one of the factories. On February 18, 2004 the company began consultation with employee representatives and unions about a reduction in the workforce. An employment tribunal found that this consultation exercise was “minimal”, although it satisfied the minimum consultation periods. The tribunal agreed with the GMB that Cranwick had failed in its statutory consultation duties and made an award against the company of 70 days’ pay per employee. Meaningful consultationDiscussions with employee representatives over 30 or 90 days prior to dismissal is a minimum starting point, but may not be adequate.Consultation has to be meaningful. Serving notice of dismissal during the minimum consultation period, for example, makes such consultation meaningless. Most importantly, the obligation is to consult affected employees “in good time” from when the employer “proposes” to make the employees redundant. This rather vague definition sub-divides into three distinct duties to consult regarding (a) ways of avoiding, (b) ways of reducing and (c) ways of mitigating the consequences of the proposed dismissals. A failure to carry out any one of these three individual duties will constitute a breach of the statutory obligation to consult. Comparing these obligations to Cranwick’s approach, the tribunal found that the company had deliberately delayed consultation until the redundancies were a fait accompli. So how do employers identify the trigger point for collective consultation? Legally this is when they are “proposing to dismiss” the employees; “proposing” means more than “contemplating” collective redundancies and appears to lie at the point that detailed plans crystallise, but before they are irrevocable.last_img read more

What makes a life significant?

first_imgIt is somehow comforting to know that one of the greatest minds of the past 100 years had a hard time making up his own mind.William James, the oldest child in a celebrated American family and a pioneer in psychology and philosophy, was apparently a famous ditherer. “He’s just like a blob of mercury,” his sister Alice wrote. “You cannot put a mental finger upon him.”Better than that, perhaps, James was a man of restless intelligence. While teaching at Harvard, he explored medicine, the mind, religion, and all the big questions that still beset people.One of those questions was: “What makes a life significant?” — the title of a lecture James delivered at Harvard in 1900. (The answer, in sum, was to be awake to the significance of other people, and to escape that “great cloud bank of ancestral blindness” that leads to intolerance and cruelty.)The same question was also the title of a panel on Monday (April 26), which celebrated James’ life and marked the centennial year of his death.James Kloppenberg, a 40-year James scholar and Harvard’s Charles Warren Professor of American History, moderated the panel, and began with a question of his own: What relationship does James’ thought have to “our own cultural moment?”Panelists Louis Menand, Sissela Bok, and Cornel West arrived at variations on the same answer: that James lives on into the 21st century, still a formative, formidable mind.Menand, Harvard’s Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of English, said James was the equivalent of today’s public intellectual. He still offers a lesson to the modern world, said Menand: Beware of training and revering only specialists. James, after all, was not trained in anything he excelled in, and his schooling was as scattershot as it was fervent.Bok, a philosopher who is Senior Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, said one of James’ ideas, to harness the energy of making war to the pursuit of making peace, would find purchase today. “He would surely be encouraged,” she said, at the vitality of doing public service, both inside and outside the university.It is worth noting too that James’ “non-militarism” was at odds with the tenor of his own time, said Bok, and James “agonized over the increasingly aggressive role his country was taking” in the world.And in another modern echo, she said, James worried that peace-loving men carried no weight equivalent to the warriors of the day.In answer to his own doubts, James wrote “The Moral Equivalent of War,” a 1906 essay in which he proposed harnessing “manly” virtues to the cause of peace. “The martial type of character,” he wrote, “can be bred without war.”He had a similar thought in “What Makes a Life Significant?” inspired by a train ride back from the Assembly Grounds in Chautauqua, N.Y. This “Sabbatical city” of sobriety, peace, and order, this “human drama without a villain or a pang,” James wrote, made him suddenly long “for something primordial and savage, even though it were as bad as an Armenian massacre.”But if humans yearn for “everlasting battle” or visions of “human nature strained to its uttermost and on the rack,” he mused, why reach for war? Why not satisfy the same urges with hard labor — with pick, ax, scythe, and shovel. Such work, James wrote, reveals “the great fields of heroism lying around me.”West, a former Harvard scholar who is the Class of 1943 University Professor at Princeton, said James had a sense of what the modern world needs now: “non-market values like love, empathy, benevolence, and sacrifice for others.”He also had a sense that greatness could be something “different than success,” said West. “William James,” he wished out loud, “speak to us in 2010.”James might bring another lesson forward into the 21st century: Leave your mind free, open, and skeptical.It stood him in good stead that James lacked a systematic education, said Menand, author of “The Metaphysical Club,” a 2001 primer on pragmatism and other intellectual currents in James’ post-Civil War America.Menand outlined the hopscotch schooling of James, whose father moved the family from place to place — back and forth to Europe — settling sometimes for only months in one place. By age 13, James had already attended 10 schools.By 1861, James was enrolled at the Lawrence Scientific School at Harvard, where he quickly jumped from engineering to anatomy to natural history and finally to medicine. A medical degree from Harvard in 1869 was the only credential James ever earned, and it was one he never used. He went on to do pioneering work in psychology and then philosophy. In the end, said Menand, James remained “a restless spirit.”Through it all, James had a capacious, welcoming intelligence, said Kloppenberg.The philosopher’s summer home in New Hampshire had nine doors, and “they all opened out,” he said, “consistent with James’ approach to the world.”Those open doors invited in the big questions.The meaning of life, said Bok, “is a question people keep asking.”Celebrating William JamesIn a continuing James celebration this year, Harvard’s Houghton Library will house “Life is in the Transitions: William James, 1842-1910,” an exhibit of sketches, manuscripts, lecture notes, and letters, from Aug. 16 to Dec. 23. Houghton will host the final day of an Aug. 13-16 conference on James, “In the Footsteps of William James: A Symposium on the Legacy — and the Ongoing Uses — of James’s Work.” It’s co-sponsored by the William James Society and the Chocorua (N.H.) Community Association. (For more information, visit the William James Society Web site.)last_img read more
