Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has designed four new dwellings at High Meadow, the new home base for Fallingwater Institute’s summer residency programs in architecture, art and design. Fallingwater Institute will begin its second season of increased operation this spring. Save this picture!© Nic LehouxSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Nic LehouxLocated on a historic farm adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence, High Meadow’s original 1960s cabin, with only four bedrooms, lacked square footage needed to meet the Institute’s growing demands. After exploring a variety of design options over several years, a decision was made to enlarge the footprint of the existing house, doubling the property’s capacity with four new dwellings.Save this picture!© Nic Lehoux“The building’s main entry welcomes visitors into a central screened porch, which joins the new architecture to an existing cabin and serves as the outdoor gathering and dining space,” says Bill James, project architect from the firm’s Pittsburgh office. “A horizontal screen, made of Norway Spruce harvested and milled on site, extends from the main cabin and continues along the walkway leading to the dwellings.”Save this picture!AxonometricDescribed as modest wood portals with framed views of the surrounding hilltops, the dwellings rest above ground on a network of nimble steel columns, imparting minimal disturbance to the site. Each small abode contains a desk, closet storage, full bathroom and two twin beds. Materials and finishes are deliberately minimalistic and durable, lending a sparse elegance to the space.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxHigh Meadow received the 2016 AIA Pennsylvania Silver Medal, the highest honor given by the Institute’s Pennsylvania chapter. The jury noted: “The scale and materiality of the building is in great contrast to the beautiful background. The graceful addition to the existing structure successfully provides new public and private amenities.”Save this picture!Courtesy of Bohlin Cywinski JacksonIn addition to High Meadow, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is responsible for several other notable projects completed for the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, including the 2006 adaptive reuse of the Barn at Fallingwater, originally built in 1870. Entrusted to the Conservancy in a 1963 grant that also included the Fallingwater residence, the Barn was transformed to provide a variety of gathering spaces for exhibitions, lectures, classes and events. The project received an AIA Committee on the Environment Top Ten award for sustainable excellence in 2005.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxProject gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV + Austin-Smith:Lord Selected to Reinvigorate Downtown GlasgowArchitecture NewsOMA’s Rem Koolhaas & David Gianotten Selected to Design MPavilion 2017Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Mill Run, PA 15464, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

PFA Pension’s chairman has demanded a statement from the company’s chief executive Henrik Heideby to explain how and why the company is using an advertising agency partly owned by his son.Denmark’s largest commercial pensions provider came under fire recently in Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende for being a long-term major client of advertising agency Umwelt, which, according to the paper, is 16% owned by Heideby’s son Mikkel Heideby.Mikkel Heideby is one of four partners in the agency and also has the role of contact director.The newspaper reports suggested the situation represented at least a potential conflict of interest. PFA chairman Svend Askær responded with a letter to the newspaper, saying: “Against the background of the article in Berlingske Tidende, I have asked Henrik Heideby for a statement to the supervisory board, so we can have it made clear what is going on in this case.”When the statement is available, the board will deal with it, he said.“The board is of the opinion there should not be business relationships with companies in which there are family relationships,” Askær said in the letter.“When we have dealt with the case within the board, we must at the same time assess the need to tighten up the conditions around PFA’s general policy surrounding business relationships with companies in which PFA staff have family relationships.”A spokesman for PFA Pension confirmed the wording of Askær’s letter but said the company had no comment on the matter.According to the news reports, PFA and Umwelt have worked closely together since 2008.PFA, after statutory pension fund ATP, is Denmark’s largest pension fund, with DKK417bn (€56bn) in assets at the end of 2013.It is run as a commercial enterprise but owned by its customers.
Rapid growth in China’s natural gas consumption has outpaced growth in its domestic natural gas production in recent years. China’s natural gas imports, both by pipeline and as liquefied natural gas (LNG), accounted for nearly half (45 percent) of China’s natural gas supply in 2018, an increase from 15 percent in 2010.To increase domestic production of natural gas, the Chinese government has introduced incentives for several forms of natural gas production, a report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration says.Natural gas production has recently grown in China largely because of increased development in low-permeability formations in the form of tight gas, shale gas, and to a lesser extent, coalbed methane.In September 2018, the Chinese State Council set a target of 19.4 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) for domestic natural gas production in 2020. In 2018, China’s domestic natural gas production averaged 15.0 Bcf/d.In June 2019, the Chinese government introduced a subsidy program that established new incentives for the production of natural gas from tight formations and extended existing subsidies for production from shale and coalbed methane resources. This subsidy is scheduled to be in effect through 2023.In addition to the changes in the subsidy program, the government allowed foreign companies to operate independently in the country’s oil and natural gas upstream sector, EIA notes.Production of tight gas, shale gas, and coalbed methane collectively accounted for 41 percent of China’s total domestic natural gas production in 2018. China has been developing tight gas from low-permeability formations since the 1970s, especially in the Ordos and Sichuan Basins. Tight gas production was negligible until 2010, when companies initiated an active drilling program that helped lower the drilling cost per vertical well and improve well productivity.Shale gas development in China has focused on the Sichuan Basin: China National Petroleum Corporation’s (CNPC) unit PetroChina operates two fields in the southern part of the basin and the China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) operates one field in the eastern part of the basin. PetroChina and Sinopec have respectively committed to produce 1.16 Bcf/d and 0.97 Bcf/d of shale gas by 2020, which, if realized, would collectively double the country’s 2018 shale gas production level.China’s coalbed methane development is concentrated in the Ordos and Qinshui Basins of Shanxi Province. These basins face significant challenges, including relatively low well productivity and relatively high production costs.China also generates synthetic natural gas from coal, a source that accounted for 2 percent of China’s natural gas production in 2018. China’s synthetic gas projects involve gasifying coal into methane in coal-rich provinces, such as Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, and Shanxi. In 2016, the Chinese government hoped to reach 1.64 Bcf/d of coal-to-gas production capacity by 2020. China’s coal-to-gas production was less than 0.3 Bcf/d in 2018 as stricter environmental mandates have slowed down plant construction and increased the cost of further developing coal-to-gas.
