The project is a house dedicated to a family of four who lives on the slope of Awaji Island. On the 986.54 m² site, a design that considers the temperate nature of Awaji Island as well as the family’s distinctive, nature-conscious approach to all aspects of life, was planned. In response to its’ context, the house combines locals’ timber dwelling construction with a unique form, consisting of a continuous spiral that rises towards the central space.Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanThe inner and outer walls were first clad with woven bamboo lattice, its’ walls and floors then covered with Sanwa Earth finish. The floor uses a technique called Tataki, a hard-packed earthen floor, resistant to high foot traffic consisting of earth, lime, and water, beat until solidification. In the winter, during the day the earth-covered walls and floors absorb heat from the exterior. At night the heat is released, keeping the interiors warm.Save this picture!© Kaori IchikawaDuring summer, due to stack effect created by the height difference between the central space and the rest of the house, wind flows from the exterior towards the center and cools the interior From the entrance, rooms are accessed by means of the main corridor. Starting from the storage, one will walk past the cloakroom, bedroom, and bathroom, leading towards the living – dining – kitchen area with glass doors to view and access the exterior garden.Save this picture!Perspective Section AWalking further inside leads one to the partially enclosed central space with an operable skylight above it. Climbing the ladder leads to children’s bedroom on the loft, overlooking the living room. The roof is a spiral garden where nature rises from the earth towards the sky. Its’ spiral shape provides varying parameters such as height, sun exposure, and humidity, enabling to roof to be populated with all sorts of plants with different growth requirements. When it rains, water soaks the roof garden and flows down towards the retaining ponds.Save this picture!© Kaori IchikawaAs habitats for the aquatic plants, in the summer the ponds also cool incoming wind, providing a comfortable breeze for the interiors. Aside from being fertile grounds for the herbs and trees to thrive, the landscape of the entire site was planned comprehensively as a closed cycle, which includes an energy generation system that also serves as a playground for children, complemented with an outdoor kiln, a bath, and a compost toilet. With the passing of time, the house would fuse with nature, resembling a natural organism in harmony with the environment.Save this picture!AxonometryProject gallerySee allShow lessShanghai Baoye Center Interior / LYCS ArchitectureSelected ProjectsFlorence Culture and Art Exchange Centre / pendaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Kaori Ichikawa+ 32Curated by María Francisca González Share Projects CopyAbout this officeRyuichi Ashizawa Architects & associatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJapanPublished on July 03, 2018Cite: “Spiral Garden / Ryuichi Ashizawa Architects & associates” 02 Jul 2018.

Mancini did not stop to speak as he headed for training with the team, or when he left separately afterwards. The mood contrasts sharply with that of exactly a year ago, when City beat QPR in thrilling fashion to win the Barclays Premier League. Mancini was rewarded with a five-year contract after that victory but his failure to build on last season’s achievements has seen his position come under regular scrutiny. City were unable to sustain a credible title defence and they slumped out of the Champions League at the group stage for a second successive season. Pellegrini’s name has been one of several linked with City in the light of their disappointments but, until now, Mancini has always brushed off the speculation. He has spoken with confidence about his job security based on the progress he has overseen at the club since his appointment in 2009, but the loss to Wigan has been another blow. And even though results do still look healthy for a club that had not won a trophy in 35 years prior to their FA Cup success in 2011, there have been other difficulties this season. Comments from Mancini relating to Joe Hart, Micah Richards, Samir Nasri and even influential captain Vincent Kompany have attracted criticism and may not have helped dressing room harmony. Mancini was also criticised for indulging controversial striker Mario Balotelli, who left the club in January, for too long. Despite the rumours, Pellegrini has denied he has an agreement in place with City. The Chilean’s agent was reported to have met with City director of football Txiki Begiristain last month. He has made it known he is to leave the club at the end of the season but has dismissed City talk. Manchester City have maintained a silence throughout another day of intense speculation over the future of manager Roberto Mancini. Press Association Rumours the Italian is about to be axed and replaced with Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini have gathered momentum since Friday, the eve of City’s shock FA Cup final loss to Wigan. Mancini hit out at City officials for failing to extinguish the speculation after that humbling defeat at Wembley but there has been no comment from the club since. City have remained in London since the weekend to train ahead of Tuesday’s fixture at Reading in the Barclays Premier League. Reporters and TV crews have been based outside the team hotel and at QPR’s Loftus Road ground, where City have trained, during the day.

What everything that’s going on, not just with baseball but all over the world, it makes you open your eyes.” Major League Baseball and the players’ association announced Friday that 31 players and seven staff members tested positive for COVID-19 during intake for the resumption of training, a rate of 1.2%. Teams resumed workouts Friday for the first time since the coronavirus interrupted spring training on March 12, two weeks before the season was to start.___The Washington Nationals have canceled Monday morning’s team workout because of COVID-19 testing delays.Players and staff were tested Friday, and general manager Mike Rizzo says the team still hasn’t received its results. Rizzo said it’s not safe to continue holding camp without accurate and timely testing and that the workout was canceled to prevent putting players and staff at risk.Rizzo says: Major League Baseball “needs to work quickly to resolve issues with their process and their lab. Otherwise, summer camp and the 2020 season are at risk.” Resuming is contingent on each side approving an extension of the collective bargaining agreement and the return to play agreement.___Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell says shortstop Luis Urias and pitcher Angel Perdomo tested positive for COVID-19 before the intake process.Counsell says both players are asymptomatic.This marks the second setback for Urias since the Brewers acquired him from San Diego in November.

We furloughed 60% of our organisation; implemented a three-month pay reduction which has been extended for some; introduced pension pauses; and refined business planning and introduced stadium and office running efficiencies to reduce costs.“Unfortunately, this is not enough to run a sustainable operation and safeguard our future.”Sweeney predicts it will take five years for the RFU to recover, and the union will lose 20% of its normal revenue over that period.

Super Falcons celebrating their victory against Korea Republic yesterday The win has revived Nigeria’s hope of making it to the knock out phase of France 2019 despite the poor start against Norway in their opening game.The African champions did what they needed to do by throwing all they had into the game to put their ambition back on course.With this victory, the Super Falcons have set the stage for a fierce encounter with host nation France on Monday next week, as they look to reach the knockout rounds for the first time in 20 years.Having lost 0-3 to Norway in their first match and realizing they could be heading back home after the group phase, the Falcons opted for a spritely approach against the Koreans.But captain Desire Oparanozie wasted a great opportunity in the 8th minute when presented with a simple header from a pull-out from Ngozi Ebere. She nodded straight at the Korean goalkeeper.Perhaps the most inspired decision for the game by Nigeria’s coach Thomas Dennerby was starting former junior international Chiamaka Nnadozie in goal and sending Tochukwu Oluehi, so jittery against Norway, to the bench. The 18 year-old goaltender simply continued from where she left off at the 2018 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup also hosted by France, where she drew some rave reviews.She cuddled and punched with good judgment, used her long limbs marvelously and stood between the Asians and any goal in the game. Her competence and confidence enabled the Falcons to push forward in search of goals.After Korean defender Kim Do Yong misdirected a forward thrust by midfielder Rita Chikwelu past her goalkeeper for Nigeria’s first goal in the 29th minute, the Falcons’ spirit soared and they bossed the game for large periods.Nigeria could have made it two four minutes after the restart, but Oparanozie’s header from a floated free kick by left back Ngozi Ebere went narrowly over the woodworks.At the back, Nigeria kept things tight against the faster Koreans, with Onome Ebi, appearing at her fifth World Cup, Osinachi Ohale, Ebere and Chidinma Okeke throwing everything in there.Rita Chikwelu, Ngozi Okobi and Chinaza Uchendu worked hard in the middle. But it was the intelligent right back Okeke, another performer from the 2018 FIFA Women’s World Cup, who got her touches right to send Asisat Oshoala to nick the second goal for Nigeria with 15 minutes left.As the Koreans attacked, Okobi read the ball well and intercepted, letting Okeke have it and to surge forward. The 18 –year old steered the ball past an advancing Korean and met it at the other end, then weighted her pass to Oshoala, who ran past a defender, beat the goalkeeper and slotted into the net from a rather tight angle. It was a magnificent goal.The win was Nigeria’s first at the FIFA Women’s World Cup since 2011, when they defeated Canada 1-0 in Germany. It was also the first time they had won a World Cup match 2-0 since achieving the same scoreline against Denmark in the USA in 1999.It was also the first win for an African team at the ongoing World Cup in France.The result means three precious points for the Super Falcons, and a real chance of reaching the knockout rounds for the first time since 1999 if they avoid defeat against host nation France in Rennes on Monday. At worse, they could also advance as one of the four best third-placed teams.Speaking on the victory against the Koreans, Coach Dennerby said getting to the last 16 has become a matter of reality.“We said when we started that we wanted to be in the last 16. Nothing has changed,” said the Nigeria boss.“We already have a good team spirit but maybe this win will give us a little bit more. Now we go to play France, a really good team.“If we can come out with a point everyone would be extremely happy.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram WOMEN’S WORLD CUPOlawale AjimotokanAn own goal by South Korea’s Kim Doyeon in the 29th minute plus another strike by Barcelona Ladies forward, Asisat Oshoala, yesterday afternoon earned Nigeria her first three points of the ongoing 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
