This modern rammed earth house, winner of the international prize for contemporary earthen architectures Terra Award 2016, is located in Ayerbe, a little village in the Spanish Pyrenees. Rural migration in the region during middle 20th century led to the disappearance of traditional architecture techniques. This house attempts to awaken the interest of the community and the curiosity about this type of sustainable buildings that are strongly linked to the territory. The project has been inspired by old local earthen buildings regarding their orientation, morphology and the use of local materials.Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerA life cycle analysis has shown a 50% reduction of CO2 emissions. Local materials like stone, earth and straw represent 80% of the weight of the building. Hydraulic lime, roof tiles, wood and sheep’s wool have also been used, obtained from an area within 150 km radius. The house includes passive solar strategies as windows specially designed for an efficient use of natural light, thermo-insulating blinds, cistern for reutilization of rain water, thermal accumulator clay plastering, biomass heating boiler, etc.Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerWith her own home design, the architect has tested all techniques and materials to their limits in order to achieve not only a natural and sustainable house, but also an energy efficient, environmentally and socially engaged building.Save this picture!PlanThe passive solar design used is also allowing research work focused on the thermal behavior of the earthen walls according to their position, as well as the study of a sample of a trombe wall.Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerThe site is within the town, has a rectangular shape with its long side facing the north. The surrounding buildings use one or another earth construction technique (adobe, rammed earth and mixed stone building techniques). The house adapts to the street levels and is built in three floors.Save this picture!SectionFollowing the traditional strategies, a patio was opened in the south. The passive solar design, combining big windows in the south face, little ones in the north and skylights with earth walls, ensures thermal comfort, natural light, and cross ventilation. These passive design principles maximize sunlight access trough the south façade improving benefits of earthen walls thermal mass. Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerIn winter, heat is stored in earthen walls during the day and it’s transmitted to the interior spaces throughout the night. In summer shadow systems as eaves, wooden curtains prevent the light access to the interior of the house.Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerUpper floors are built in 45cm thick earthen walls and timber decks support the housing spaces. Earth selection was objective and was tested in laboratory. A discontinuous sedimentation test and a screening test were made in order to know lime, sand and gravel’s proportions. It was also made a carbonates test to quantify the carbonates proportions contained in the sample. Straw fivers were added to the mixture to increase thermal and shrinkage qualities. The interior and exterior lime plaster was built using the “calicostrado” vernacular technique. Wooden work form used was a standardized system and was mounted continuous and simultaneously fitting it immediately before the filling. The construction process was mechanized to improve execution and economical performance. The mixture, the elevation and the pouring were made by a single machine. The compression was made by hand with an electric compressor.Save this picture!SectionCoverings of interior partitions were made by local clay plasters. The roof is isolated with 20cm of sheep’s wool in order to avoid thermal loss during winter and overheating in summer. Inner wooden floors are isolated with natural cork boards.Save this picture!© Xavier d’ArquerPinewood carpentry has double glazing with internal air chamber. Windows opened to north and west facades have interior wooden shutters. South windows have heavy interior curtains and roller exterior wooden shutters to manage shadows. Both strategies are the traditional ones for each orientation, adapted to local climate and it’s management is known by users.Save this picture!DetailA cistern for reutilization of rain water is buried in the patio.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Tagged with: Research / statistics tax Charities and social enterprises have received £3.4m in the past two years as a result of Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR).SITR offers individual investors a 30% income tax relief on loans or equity investments made to charities and social enterprises. Research conducted by think tank NPC for Big Society Capital reveals that 30 projects have raised investment using SITR deals since April 2014, predominantly helping organisations with revenues of under £500,000 a year.On average these investments have raised capital of £100,000 for charitable causes, including education, homelessness, heritage work and work in local communities.The market has predominantly boosted organisations outside of London, with activity having focused on Scotland (a third of all projects) and the South West (one in five). More than 170 investors have invested into SITR deals, significantly high net-worth individuals and angels, and an increasing number of retail investors are using SITR with £230 the average investment size.South Bristol Sports Centre is one of the most recent social enterprises to benefit from the tax break, having received £250,000 from the Resonance Bristol SITR Fund. The centre works with young people in one of the most deprived areas in Bristol and is using the investment to finance the construction of six five-a-side football pitches.Simon Rowell, interim head of strategy and market development at Big Society Capital said:“It’s encouraging to find that smaller charities and social enterprises have been able to navigate the tax relief rules and are already finding SITR to be a useful new tool to help them grow. The affordability of SITR products is highly promising. There are now big opportunities for investors to follow the early leaders and use their investment account to support charities social enterprises they believe in.” 151 total views, 1 views today Advertisement SITR raises £3.4m in first two years Melanie May | 13 July 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8
Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists The newspaper Filastine’s former bureau chief, Sabri had been detained since 4 January. No date has been set for his trial. Help by sharing this information News May 16, 2021 Find out more After being released on the morning of 9 March, Sabri had been due to give an interview at his home at midday to Mosab Al-Khatib, the correspondent of the satellite TV station Al-Quds, and Pal Media cameraman Ashraf Abu Shawish about the role of the Palestinian Union of Journalists. March 11, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Security forces raid journalist’s home just hours after his release “Sabri’s release is good news, but Palestinian journalists continue to endure a harrowing environment,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The targets of arrests and raids, they are made to pay for the political tension between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. Press freedom is the victim of political rivalry and score-settling in both parts of the Palestinian Territories.” Reporters Without Borders deplores the fact that journalist Mustafa Sabri’s home in Qaliqilya, in the north of the West Bank, was raided by members of the security forces as he was about to give an interview on 9 March, just hours after he was released from prison on payment of 5,000 Jordanian dinars (5,160 euros) in bail. PalestineMiddle East – North Africa In Gaza City, individuals claiming to be members of the Hamas interior ministry’s security forces, raided the home of Noufouz Al-Bakri, the correspondent of the newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, on 7 March, a day after she criticised women’s rights violations in the Gaza Strip in an article posted online. Paul Martin, a British cameraman who had been held in Gaza City since 14 February, was released this morning and deported from the Gaza Strip via the Erez crossing into Israel. The Hamas authorities told him he is banned from returning. Martin was arrested as he was about to testify at the trial of a Palestinian friend accused of collaborating with Israel.

They will remain free while awaiting the outcome of their appeal, which is due to open on 5 January 2008.“The growing number of court cases brought against Egyptian journalists is in complete contradiction with Hosni Mubarak’s electoral programme,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “He promised at the start of his new mandate to decriminalise press offences.”“The deterioration in relations between the independent and opposition press is a reminder that freedom to inform can never be taken for granted. Egyptian journalists, although freer than their colleagues in the Arabic world, have to face a return to censorship and control of the media,” the organisation said. The court ruling comes one month after three journalists on the same paper, including the editor, were sentenced on 24 September to two years in prison for “damaging the reputation of the court system”.
