This is ISANA, a multi-layered row house in Musashino City, Tokyo. The owner of the house informed us that it is customary in his home country of India to build some rooms for rent along with the construction of a new house. Following the custom, we planned the owner’s house with the floor area of approximately 70m2 plus rental housing units with floor areas from 25m2 to 30m2.Save this picture!© Masaya YoshimuraIn the beginning, the owner described to us the image of the place as “a little house in the woods” and his words became the key to our design in all aspects. However, we imagined that required spaces for rent would inevitably sum up into a large volume, and therefore set our design strategy to divide and disperse the rental housing units to create the image of “a little house.” The house is designed as a collective body of smaller houses. The large volume is dismantled and gradually blended into the city, standing there as if it is a house for all people, and yet somehow not belonging to anyone at the same time.Save this picture!SectionISANA was built after the occurrence of the Great Tohoku earthquake in 2011. After the completion, new tenants moved into rental housing units and activities of their everyday lives unfold around the courtyard in an atmosphere of a boarding house rather than an apartment building. Some sounds from upper and lower floors are heard because it is comprised of wood construction. But according to the owner, it rather makes him feel alive and secure to hear some sounds and feel neighbors’ presence in the same house. It is also a nice surprise for him to see various people wandering into the courtyard everyday.Save this picture!© Taketo NishikuboTrees in the woods extend their branches fully to shelter, protect and accept us all. Although composed of a simple shape, they accommodate many living creatures in various places. Giving does not mean losing something, but it represents a will to protect and be protected, and to connect with others. This house consists of very small places and features, but its good will extend and be connected to the world.Save this picture!© Masaya YoshimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessColumbus Metropolitan Library / NBBJSelected ProjectsABDM and RAU Win Competition to Design College Campus in KortrijkArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

England women’s boss Neville defends appointment

first_img“(Regarding) experience, I would have thought that not many candidates that applied for the job have the experience that I’ve got of coaching elite players,” he said.“I’ve coached the best players in the men’s game at the top level and I believe the players I’ll be coaching in the England women’s team are top-class professionals at the elite level.“I’ve done all my qualifications. I did my B-licence when I was 24, my A-licence when I was 28 and I’ve got my UEFA Pro-Licence. I cannot be more qualified for this job than what I have.”Old messages from Neville’s twitter handle @fizzer18 re-appeared shortly after he was appointed.They included a 2012 post that said: “U women of (sic) always wanted equality until it comes to paying the bills #hypocrites”.Neville appeared to delete his Twitter account after the comments were re-published and subsequently apologised while the Football Association said he would not be punished.Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | New England women’s head coach Phil Neville said on Monday he “cannot be more qualified” to take on the role, defending his appointment that was overshadowed by sexist tweets.The 41-year-old was named Lionesses boss last Tuesday, but has no past experience of working in the women’s game and lacks overall management experience.The former Manchester United, Everton and England defender succeeds Mark Sampson, who was sacked in September over allegations of misconduct in a previous role and amid a racism row that led to widespread criticism of senior FA figures.“I’ve done all of my qualifications, I cannot be more qualified for this job than what I am,” Neville told Sky Sports, saying that getting the job ranks high among his achievements.“We agreed that I was the right man for the job and I’ve got to say that it was probably one of the highlights of my career,” he said.“Take everything I’ve done on the football field and since then, it was a special moment because being manager of the national team is the ultimate honour and I’ve got that now.”After ending his playing career, Neville assisted David Moyes at Manchester United and then brother Gary at Valencia, roles he said had given him experience of working with elite players.last_img read more

With little competition, the Bundesliga goes global

first_img“But now they are also looking forward to seeing Fortuna Duesseldorf and Paderborn. It’s crazy.”In Mexico, football journalists are grateful for something to cover — and the sorely-missed revenue live sport generates.“For those of us who make a living from football the fact there hasn’t been any activity really affects us. A weekend without football is really difficult,” said Emilio Fernando Alonso, a Mexican reporter for ESPN.In China, where the Super League might not begin until June, German football’s meticulously planned return is being closely watched.Writing in the Oriental Sports Daily, columnist Ji Yuyang said the biggest challenge for the Bundesliga was not restarting during the pandemic, but being able to outlast it because of financial pressures that clubs were facing due to the health crisis.“Half of the teams in the top two leagues are in danger of going bankrupt, according to estimates in Germany,” Ji wrote.“So for many German clubs, whether it was better to wait for failure or risk restarting, they chose the latter.”The quarantine and social distancing measures that Bundesliga clubs have instituted are also being scrutinised in Italy and Spain, whose leagues are some way from being able to consider resuming.“It will be a barometer, the reference point for all the others… if it all goes well it will be a great success and if there’s a big problem it will have a similarly powerful negative effect,” Movistar+ commentator Barbero said. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will have a global audience when his side Bayern Munich face Union Berlin on SundayParis, France | AFP |  German football will find itself in an unaccustomed global spotlight this weekend as audiences starved of live football turn to the only major European league back in action.With the Premier League, Spain’s La Liga and Serie A in Italy all still sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic, the Bundesliga will take centre stage on Saturday.Even in Brazil, media coverage has switched from domestic football stories to what TV viewers can expect to see when Borussia Dortmund meet Schalke in the biggest match of the opening day, albeit it without spectators in the stadium.Cable channel Fox Sports, which holds exclusive rights to show the Bundesliga in Brazil, will be showing the Ruhr Derby at 9:30 am local time. Its website already features a lengthy article about the games entitled “The wait will soon be over”.Even Brazil’s biggest media group, Globo, is getting in on the act with interviews with four Brazilians who play for Bundesliga clubs, including Wolfsburg midfielder William, who admitted players were “a little bit scared” about the implications for their health.In India, foreign football leagues have found a market in India’s urban youth who keenly follow the Premier League and support clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United. But a few of these fans also watch La Liga and Bundesliga.“I am desperately waiting for the Bundesliga to start this weekend. I am thirsty for live football action in this lockdown,” Amjad Rehan Ibrahim, a student of Delhi University, told AFP.– ‘A barometer’ –Indian international forward Jeje Lalpekhlua said he would also be tuning in to the coverage on Indian broadcasters Star Sports and Hotstar: “It’s difficult without football for so long. I am surely going to watch it.”In Japan, rightsholder Sky Perfect is going to show two Bundesliga matches this weekend free of charge.In Europe too, the matches in Germany will provide a much-needed fix of live sport.Adolfo Barbero, who commentates on Bundesliga games for the Spanish channel Movistar+, said: “I can assure you that I haven’t seen this level of interest in the Bundesliga in 20 years.

Music is like a way of life for me

first_imgRead to know what Jubin Nautiyal has to say about the project, his approach towards music and a lot more: Coming from a small town, what have been your aspirations from music as a career? Music has been more like a way of living life for me. Even if I was not as big as I am now, even if was working in a corporate office, I would still be singing as a hobby. So the idea of pursuing music as a profession was a generic thought. Do you follow a fixed pattern of how a song has to be sung, or try, improvise and modify it at the time of your performance? Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold SchwarzeneggerWhen I go inside the studio to dub a song, I completely leave myself outside. I enter inside as a clean slate. I am not stuck on how I want to sing. Whenever I am working with composers, usually they give me a lot of freedom because they are obviously working with me for my style of singing. But I definitely try to understand how they are composing the song, how they are hearing it, which makes a lot of difference. ‘Cinema shapes the outlook of society’, do you believe it is true for music too? Do you think with music you can bring a change? Also Read – Salman pays tribute to Vinod Khanna on ‘Dabangg 3’ wrap upI believe many times music shapes the outlook of cinema. There are so many films made nowadays that are based on music. There are so many projects for which the director scores the music before going ahead with the script. So, it all goes hand in hand. Sometimes lyrics come first or the melody does. What matters is how everything blends together as a product. What’s new for the fans in your new MixTape project? This time, I have collaborated with Abhijit Vaghani and Shirley Setia. We have recreated three songs – ‘Ik Vaari’, ‘Tum Ho Toh’ and ‘Nadaan Parindey’. They all are nicely composed and we had fun shooting them. I hope my fans enjoy the presentation and music too. What do you feel about T-series’ initiative of recreating songs? I feel T-series’ MixTape is a new way to see Bollywood music all over again. In a time where recreations are enjoyed and celebrated, T-series is bringing about some songs which have had a crazy run when they were released. But again it is coming with such a different expression altogether, with different artists creating its own niche. It’s a unique concept. What are your future plans? I have always been an independent artist. So, this year I want to give some time to independent music.last_img read more

One Metric by Which the NBA Is More Popular Than the NFL

One Metric by Which the NBA Is More Popular Than the NFL

We often hear about the NFL’s dominance in the mindshare of sports fans, and it’s hard to argue with the facts and figures floating around to support this notion. Pro football has been No. 1 in the annual Harris Poll survey of Americans’ favorite sports for three consecutive decades, and the NFL’s television ratings routinely trounce those of other sports. But, curiously, I was fooling around with Google Trends, and there is at least one area in which the NFL is not crushing the opposition: Google searches.The NFL is trailing the NBA by about 5 percent since Google’s Trends search data became available in 2004.There are a lot of factors that can cloud these results, including the possibility that not all search terms are being correctly attributed to each league. This is a particular issue for “football,” which is, as you probably know, what everyone outside the U.S. calls soccer. Recent improvements to Trends make this issue less problematic, but it’s still worth mentioning.The numbers also include worldwide searches; the NBA has a large global presence (particularly in Asia), and Google is, by definition, biased toward countries with a greater number of Internet users. For what it’s worth, the NFL is still tops by quite a bit within the U.S.Even so, it’s an interesting data point about the relative global reach of America’s biggest sports leagues. If we look at things from an international perspective, the NFL is not the behemoth it usually appears to be stateside. read more
