SH2-Sundbyoster Hall II is mixed use architecture integrating grocery store, sports hall and housing units in one building located in the district of Amager in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is a visionary solution for building in dense and complicated city environments.Save this picture!© Adam MørkThe ground floor contains a grocery store and an entrance for the sports hall, parking and apartments. A double height glass façade on the second floor ensures pedestrians and neighbours a direct view of the activities in the sports hall. It creates a connection between the building and the surrounding city. The hall is open to public, spans over two floors and is highly adaptable to different types and sizes of events and sports. Save this picture!DiagramEach of the functions is expressed by a unique use of materials, all part of the collective collage. After nightfall the pleated red-gold wooden facade will appear glowing in the escaping lights from the vertical ribbon windows that hit the warm tinted wood.

The house was designed as a guest house containing a private art gallery for the owner’s collection.Save this picture!© Daici AnoIts shape being flat and square, the one-story house has a floor plan entirely defined by five courtyards alone. All facades of the building are made of concrete walls and black glass, clearly dividing its interior space from the external environment. The house opens its reinforced concrete roof to the sky in order to create five courtyards. The exterior roofs tilt inwards only vertically inviting light as well as shadows and reflections of the surrounding nature. The interior roofs and floor levels consequently create rhythmical geometry to support the simplicity of the exterior. All rooms are designed to face the courtyards each of which is distinct in character designed to receive light at different times of the day. The sun rises and sets. The moon waxes and wanes. This unbroken rhythm of light, to which we submit the entire architecture, defines this house.Save this picture!© Daici AnoSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Daici AnoIn the design of IT IS A GARDEN, the concept of vertical interplay of the sun through the courtyards crosses with the horizontal connection to the Japanese natural sceneries. The architecture’s volume is designed to receive those elements in all dimensions; the slants of light at ever-changing angles, the shadow of the forest trees, as well as komorebi—the interplay of light and leaves. They keep moving and draw a garden of shadows all over the floor at the speed of the moving sun and wind. The interior glass walls and windows create a garden of kaleidoscopic reflections of trees and plants projected on them from every courtyard.Save this picture!© ASSISTANTSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Daici AnoNot only the courtyards, but such gardens made of immaterial elements that emerge between interplay of vertical and horizontal relationships to nature are also the gardens meaningfully designed in this house.Save this picture!© Daici AnoLight and shadows move freely as if they were the main inhabitants of this house.

Freedom of information buffeted from all sides

first_imgPhoto : President Michel Djotodia on 21 December 2013 in Bangui / AFP CAR policeman who shot reporter must be punished, RSF says Follow the news on Central African Republic to go further April 6, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News The media landscape had gradually normalized in the course of the decade preceding the rebellion thanks to the relative stability imposed by President François Bozizé’s government.There was notable legislative progress in 2005, including the promulgation of a law on media freedom, the decriminalization of media offences and the creation of a regulatory body called the High Council for Communication.The country’s news media nonetheless continued to experience the usual problems resulting from financial insecurity, a lack of equipment and training, and harassment by government officials.The past decade’s evolution was brought to an end by the emergence of the disparate Seleka rebel coalition leading to the taking of the capital, Bangui, on 24 March 2013 and President Bozizé’s overthrow.The situation has worsened since the events of 5-6 December, when coordinated attacks allegedly carried out by “anti-balaka” Bozizé supporters triggered violent reprisals by former Seleka militias, a process accompanied by growing polarization around religious identity – the “ex-Seleka” being mainly Muslim and the pro-Bozizé forces being mainly Christian.Partisan coverageAs physical attacks and threats to media and journalists increased during 2013, many newspapers radicalised their discourse and failed to maintain journalistic objectivity.In an attempt to prop up Bozizé’s crumbling regime, Radio Centrafrique and other state-owned media at first targeted the Seleka rebels with divisive messages and hate messages. Radio Centrafrique subsequently concentrated on broadcasting details of Seleka exactions.Christophe Gazam Betty, the communication minister appointed after the Seleka takeover, banned the media from talking about Seleka’s actions, notifying them that every report needed authorization by his office and reminding the state media that they were required to support government policy under an existing decree. The print media’s behaviour has been dominated by financial interests, with the main newspapers such as Le Citoyen, Le Confident and Hirondelle allying themselves with the politicians who offer them the most money.Radio Ndeke Luka, a radio station supported by Fondation Hirondelle, a Swiss NGO, and by international donors, is the only news outlet to have remained relatively neutral during this period, limiting itself to reporting atrocities without comment.Intimidation and physical attacksWhen Seleka was in the process of taking Bangui in March 2013, its gunmen targeted the news media. The headquarters of many media were completely ransacked and equipment was even taken from Radio Ndeke Luka despite its privileged location within the compound used by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).“We often receive threats from Seleka members, either by telephone or they come directly to the station,” Radio Ndeke Luka editor Sylvie Panika told Reporters Without Borders.Community radio stations in the centre of the country had to close as the Seleka forces advanced. Pressured either by local officials or by the rebels and increasingly exposed to violence, the radio stations were forced to stop covering the fighting. Those that tried to resist were silenced or ransacked.After Seleka had ousted the Bozizé government, Reporters Without Borders urged the new authorities to ensure that the media were able to operate freely and safely. Despite interim President Michel Djotodia’s promise on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day, that “no journalists will be imprisoned for speaking out” and that “they will be guaranteed this (..) freedom of expression by the new authorities,” there were many threats from government officials and Seleka members during the following months.Government harassment and intimidation of privately-owned media increased in late July and in August. One journalist was kidnapped for several hours on 3 August and others were threatened by government representatives.The announced disbanding of Seleka in September did not take place in practice and just helped to increase the dangers for the media. A new secret police force led by former Seleka general Mahamat Nouradine Adam began systematically harassing media personnel in October, arbitrarily detaining and threatening the editors of three Bangui-based dailies.December crisisThe clashes in Bangui on 5 and 6 December, coinciding with the deployment of French troops with a UN mandate to disarm the ex-Seleka militias, plunged the country into a news blackout. All radio stations stopped broadcasting and newspapers stopped appearing for several days.The three leading Bangui-based radio stations – Radio Ndeke Luka, Radio Centrafrique and Radio Notre Dame – resumed broadcasting on 8 December at the behest of President Djotodia, who summoned journalists to his office to record and broadcast his appeal for calm.But the threats have not stopped. In at least once case, ex-Seleka militiamen who were supposed to be escorting media personnel threatened radio journalists and deposited them outside their station. Radio stations continue to restrict their broadcasting times in order to respect the 6 p.m. curfew.Newspapers took more time to resume operations because of the difficulties of printing and distributing in the paralyzed city. Some newspapers, including Le Citoyen, Le Confident and Le Quotidien de Bangui, began publishing again on 16 December but Le Citoyen had to move to a safer location.In the rest of the country, a few community radio stations have resumed broadcasting, mainly carrying appeals for calm. Local media are continually threatened.The four journalists working at Radio ICDI, which is based in Boali, 95 kms north of Bangui, were forced to abandon the radio station and flee when ex-Seleka gunmen went to the station and threatened them on 16 December. Radio ICDI is the only station covering a vast area to the north of the capital, relaying information from other radio stations to towns and villages that are now isolated from the rest of the country.Because of the dangers, some media are taking great care with the way they are reporting the news, and in some cases are censoring themselves. Le Citoyen says it prefers to reproduce Radio France Internationale’s reports rather than provide its own coverage.Journalists continue to be threatened and those still covering the clashes are clearly taking risks to do. A foreign media crew was threatened by both ex-Seleka and anti-balaka militiamen last week and had to be escorted by French troops. It is assumed that any act of reporting entails taking a political position. Journalists, especially local journalists, are under threat from both sides. Increased tension in the past few days forced almost all of the newspapers in the capital to stop publishing again on 20 December. Some journalists have told Reporters Without Borders that they feel that the threats to media personnel are growing by the day.Reporters Without Borders’ recommendationsReporters Without Borders recommends:- that the Central African Republic’s media refrain from using a violent or polarizing discourse, that they report the facts without distortion and that they try to defuse tension and promote dialogue in order to prevent further escalation in the violence. – that armed groups stop threatening journalists and respect their status as non-combatants and their role as neutral witnesses of events.- that the transitional authorities continue to encourage the media’s activities so that they can inform the population about political and security developments.- that the international forces deployed in the CAR protect journalist in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1738 on the protection of journalists in conflict zones. News Organisation Central African RepublicAfrica Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR A year after the Seleka coalition began its rebellion, Reporters Without Borders is providing the following overview of media freedom in the Central African Republic, where journalists are still in danger despite the deployment of French and African peacekeepers.

The harassment continues

first_img News Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria News May 18, 2021 Find out more The publisher of the Algerian daily Liberté, Farid Alilat, was arrested at his newspaper offices and taken before the court in Algiers where he was questioned for five hours about a column entitled, “La fessée” (The Spanking). RSF_en AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa News News Follow the news on Algeria October 8, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The harassment continues Help by sharing this information center_img April 29, 2021 Find out more Organisation AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières) condemned the 7 October episode as the latest in a run of relentless harassment of the independent press. The press freedom organisation warned the authorities not to damage freedom of expression on the eve of the presidential election. “These arrests bring the government into disrepute”, said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders. The offending column, published on 21 August, was bylined Hakim Laâlam of the daily Le Soir d’Algérie, at the time under a suspension for failing to pay its debts to the state printing works. Liberté had published the column in its own pages in a gesture of solidarity. Journalists working in the private press took a collective decision at the beginning of September to refuse to respond when summoned by the judicial police. They decided they would only answer for what they had written before the courts. Editor in chief of Liberté, Said Chekri said the summonses arrived so thick and fast that it was hard to keep track of them, around 30 in an average month. There had been the same rigmarole for more than a month. After three summonses there would be an arrest, the journalist taken before the chief prosecutor and the examining magistrate, followed, until now, by a conditional release. Sometimes common law cases going back several years are reopened but generally journalists are arrested for “insulting the head of state” (under Article 144a of the Criminal Code). A new element has been the fact that journalists have been arrested not in the street but at their newspaper offices.

Division bench of Justice RD Dhanuka and Justice Madhav Jamdar were hearing a writ petition filed by Viraf Mehta, a Trustee on behalf of the Bombay Parsi Panchayat (BPP) via video conferencing. On Monday, the Court had asked the State to consider the BPP’s representation and the State rejected the said representation today. Petitioner’s counsel Advocate Prakash Shah referred to the Supreme Court;s order allowing opening of three Jain temples in Mumbai during the Paryushan period and submitted similarly that the Parsi community in Mumbai should also be allowed to hold annual prayers for the dead on September 3. Although BPP’s petition had initially sought directions for opening of Fire Temples and other places of worship for the Parsi Community but Adv Shah clarified that his client presses reliefs only with respect to Doongerwadi and that also only for offering prayers on September 3. Thereafter, an additional affidavit was submitted on behalf of the petitioner along with various undertakings. These undertakings were accepted across the bar. The affidavit states that the Parsis who died due to Covid-19 are not allowed to be brought to Doongerwadi but are cremated at the Worli prayer hall. The property Doongerwadi is spread across over 55 acres and is completely isolated and gated as well. Except the members of Parsi community no one else is allowed to enter upon the Doongerwadi, the additional affidavit states. Following undertakings were submitted before the Court- (i) Not more than 6 persons from the community and two Priests at a time in each of 5 pavilions admeasuring about from 600-800 square feet would be permitted for the purpose of Farvardin between 7 am and 4:30 pm. (ii) On September 3, 2020 there would be no religious function and there would be no large congregations like Ganeshostav or Navratri. Only the restricted members of Parsi community will come to Doongerwadi to pray for their close departed soul, such ceremony would last around 30 minutes by each of the group permitted in those 5 pavilions admeasuring 600-800 square feet. Two of the Priests of the Parsi community would also attend the prayers alongwith maximum 6 members of the Parsi community in each of 5 pavilions at the time of offering prayers during the slot of 30 minutes and not more than that. (iii) Before allowing any person to enter the pavilion, his temperature will be recorded using a contactless temperature gun to ensure maximum safety and proper liquid/gel based sanitizers will also be sprayed/applied on the hand of each worshiper entering the premises. (iv) There is only one entrance for entering Doongerwadi and there would be no congregations either at the time of entering the Doongerwadi area or at the time of exit. (v) Prayers would be not more than 30 minutes for each of the groups of 6 persons with 2 Priests per pavilion. (vi) Proper sanitization of each of the pavilions would be done and will admit the next batch after a gap of 15-20 minutes after sanitization. (vii) The Petitioner undertook not only to adhere to the social distancing norms but strictly follow the guidelines of Central and State Government. No person will be allowed without a face mask. The members will also offer hand gloves to those who desire to use them. All worshipers will have to follow all the social distancing norms prescribed in SOP dated June 4, 2020 as well as guidelines dated August 31, 2020 framed by the Central Government and State Government respectively. (viii) Petitioner undertook that there will be not more than 200 persons throughout the day in batches to offer the prayers. The bench made it clear that the trust shall not allow any person below the age of 10 years and above 65 years of age at the time of prayers or even at entry level. Finally, the bench noted- “We accept the statement made by Mr. Prakash Shah, learned counsel for the Petitioner and also by Mr. Viraf D. Mehta that the worshipers who seek to remain present for the purpose of offering prayers would be allotted slots by an appointment previously fixed. Mr. Mehta informed this Court that the process of giving appointment would start today itself through social media. Statement is accepted. It is made clear that only those persons who would be given appointment by the Trust would be allowed to offer prayers at Doongerwadi. It is made clear that after prayers offered by the members of the Parsi community who are given such appointment, the entire premises would be sanitized by the Petitioner at its own cost. None of the worshipers who are permitted to offer prayers by this order would remain in the premises of Doongerwadi after such prayers are completed.” Petitioners also assured the Court that they will co-operate with the traffic department in avoiding the traffic problem to other members of public during the period between 6:30 am to 5 pm. Thus, Court directed the State Government to make the proper arrangement to avoid any traffic problem during this period by providing a suitable number of traffic constables.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
