The client requested Villa Jeju to be a variation of Villa Mangwon, which is the reason for similar namesake. It was necessary to create a more advanced and evolved species in response to the geographical character of Jeju Island while maintaining the fundamental form of stacking. Is there any place in Korea that has more eccentric character than Jeju Island? Could a white building that is likely to be in the Mediterranean location acquire the unique characteristics of Jeju Island just because it features walls made of indigenous basalt stones of Jeju Island? The project began with these simple but practical questions. There are a number of elements that are uniquely associated with Jeju Island and regarded as the identity of the island: Dol hareubang (large rock statue carved from porous basalt), Jeju tangerine, Haenyeo (female divers) and others.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinFrom sculptures that welcome visitors upon their arrival at the Jeju airport to the erasers sold at elementary school stationery stores, they are cultural icons and omnipresent all over Jeju Island. What if they can be used as an architectural element? We can see statues of Roman gods supporting ancient buildings in Rome, then why can’t we have Jeju’s iconic Dol hareubang statues to support buildings in Jeju? Successfully implemented, it could present possibilities for somewhat differentiated scopes of the discourse freed from the Korean regionalism which had been relatively serious under the premise of ethics within a rather conceptual and pedantic level. To that end, attention was first given to pillars. There are a number of architectural elements, but pillars play a key role in differentiating architecture from other man-made objects.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinThey are fundamental pieces and have come to be referred to as an iconic symbol that identifies historic styles for different eras. Within that context, local and symbolic, but ordinary and undemanding objects such as Dol hareubang and Jeju tangerine were adopted to play an elevated role of pillars and serve as essential components of the whole building. As a result, this direct and kitsch outcome could be familiar and relatable to the general public. Dol hareubang statue is placed on the ground floor by the entrance and appears to be lightly supporting the concrete slab on its head. It creates the first impression and welcomes guests as the gateway. The disc-shaped wall on the other side is slighted wedged between the ground and the building creating geometric tension as well as ensuring privacy for the unit on the ground floor.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinFinished with mud-plastered basalt stones which are commonly used for traditional private houses and sheds in Jeju, this disc-shaped wall reminds of Jeju’s famous tangerines. On the ocean facing side, a pillar made of basalt stones and an old tree trunk stand in juxtaposition while contrasting each other. The pillar made of solid basalt stone stands a bit unfamiliar in the middle of the living room on the ground floor, triggering an illusion of a lava flow seeping through the window. While the pillar acts as a focal point of the interior, the tree trunk located by parking garage takes on the role of a playful sidekick. In addition to their design intention, the two pillars perform an important functional role by embracing the drain pipes running down from the roof and terraces on the upper floors.Save this picture!Section 1Villa Jeju shows a firmly stacked form with the classical bilateral symmetry, but it overturns again the type of ‘stacked house’ as it looks unstable and slightly ridiculous due to the objects placed on the ground floor. The way of placing windows is another key element to understand Villa Jeju. They are laid on the top of slabs, but also hung on the bottom of slabs, thus the symmetry could be applicable to not only horizontal but also vertical orientation. Then the direction of gravity gets disoriented and the building hovers lightly like a toy. The elevation facing the ocean was designed to have a transparent glass facade with terraces to maximize the ocean view granted by its location. The opposite elevation features a brick facade with small openings without terraces and thus the building itself faces the ocean.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinEmbracing the drain pipes in them, the rows of columns of terraces are covered with anodized aluminum sheets. Subtle reflections of the color of the sky on these columns provide visual pleasure by gliding the sight from the living room into the ocean. Pastel-tone orange bricks and horizontal bands of white stucco used for the exterior resonate with conventional buildings in the old town of Jeju Island and make the building highly relatable. The floor plan has a simple A’-B-A-B-A’ type. Two house units are divided by ‘A’ in the middle where facilities such as an elevator and staircase are present. Living room and kitchen are put into one rectangular space, but the bathroom and entrance create an ambiguous boundary between them.Save this picture!Elements Blocks SketchSave this picture!© Hyosook ChinSave this picture!Concept Sketch 1A wall separating the living area and the rooms are composed of concrete and bricks. Concrete wall and beams are exposed in raw but painted white and the same but bigger bricks used for the external wall fill the openings of the concrete wall. The inner wall is treated almost the same as the external wall. The exposed ceiling in concrete and terrazzo floor also brings a heightened sense of external room as if picnicking happens in the living room and kitchen. Overall, Villa Jeju is an experimental multi-family house that strategically contemplates regional locality and popularity through its floor plan and embraces the unique climate and relaxing emotion of Jeju Island.Save this picture!Model 2Project gallerySee allShow lessGreen Shutter House / OOF! architectureSelected ProjectsBallarat East House / Porter ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Architects: aoa architects Area Area of this architecture project South Koreacenter_img 2018 Photographs:  Hyosook Chin, Jaewon Suh Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Villa Jeju / aoa architectsSave this projectSaveVilla Jeju / aoa architects Houses Photographs Save this picture!© Hyosook Chin+ 40Curated by María Francisca González Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/902888/villa-jeju-aoa-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeaoa architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeogwipo-siSouth KoreaPublished on October 01, 2018Cite: “Villa Jeju / aoa architects” 01 Oct 2018.

On the first day of the January sales, activists from the press freedom organization wearing swimming costumes braved the Paris winter to raise public awareness. “We are carrying on with this campaign, launched last October, to make tourists are aware of the issues before they head for the sunshine,” the organization said. “We are not calling for a boycott of these destinations but we want travellers to see what is behind the scenes. We have chosen three countries that are a paradise for vacationers and a hell for journalists: Mexico, Vietnam and Thailand.“The palm trees, beaches and temples often conceal harsh treatment of journalists and bloggers. We advocate responsible tourism. It is your choice where you take your vacation but it is our duty to tell you where you are venturing.”More than eighty journalists have been killed in the past 10 years in Mexico. Covering drug trafficking has become a risky activity there. Murders of journalists go unpunished so nothing stops the killers from continuing to ply their trade.Many subjects are taboo in Thailand and Vietnam. Criticising their rulers or exposing the corruption that permeates the upper levels of government can land you in jail for 15 or 20 years.MORE INFORMATION : www.censorship-paradise.com Organisation last_img read more

Calabria, Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). “As demonstrated by the 2008 financial crisis and again by COVID-19, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac must be well capitalized in order to support the mortgage market during a stressed environment.”The review will assess both the risk that activities in the secondary mortgage market pose to the stability of the financial system and the efficacy of various risk factors.Calabria, commenting at the FSOC Principals Meeting, said under the Dodd-Frank Act, under one of the Council’s core purposes is “to promote market discipline, by eliminating expectations on the part of shareholders, creditors, and counterparties” of large financial institutions.“Simply stated, the Council’s job is to end bailouts,” he said.Calabria added that he is concerned that the actions taken over a decade, such as the TARP, reinforced the expectation of bailouts.“I also remain concerned that as memories of the 2008 financial crisis fade, so does the resolve for ending bailouts,” he said. “Dodd-Frank ultimately leaves ending bailouts to the discretion of regulators, and I, for one, am committed to using all the tools at my disposal to do just that. I believe the nonbank guidance is an important step toward fulfilling that purpose and ending bailouts.”The FHFA’s Director added that some of the previous nonbank designations were done in such a manner that raised the possibility that designated entities would be perceived as “too big to fail.”“In doing so, the Council ran the risk that a designation would distort market expectations and reduce market discipline, contrary to its statutory purposes. I believe the approach the Council adopted yesterday reduces that risk,” he said.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee has directed the Registrar General to initiate requisite activities in this regard, within three weeks. The development comes in a writ petition filed by Advocate Nikunj Berlia, inter alia seeking following reliefs: The quality of A4 size papers that are used for printing and filing matters in the Appellate Side and Original Side of the High Court should be such that the same would be cost effective, without insisting on bond papers.Printing and filings before sub-ordinate courts should also be in A4 size papers. This, the Petitioner contended will provide consistency and uniformity in the matter of filing and also in the matter of duplicating the papers by photostat or otherwise to be utilized when litigation reaches the superior courts.A4 size papers should be required to be printed on both sides. The Petitioner insisted that such utility of A4 size papers will considerably reduce the number of sheets that may be required to place the entire pleadings on board. It was the case of the Petitioner that the above measures will also help to control waste of papers. At the outset, the Division Bench noted that the petition has been initiated with a good intention. However, it was of the opinion that the issues raised in the petition call for determination on the administrative side. It observed, “we are of the view that the issues sought to be raised are not matters which should call for determination on the judicial side without the High Court administration dealing with the matter at the appropriate level, within a reasonable time, so that the interest of the community at large should be better subserved.” The Bench therefore disposed of the petition, with directions to the Registrar General to raise the aforesaid issues on the administrative side of the High Court. It has also ordered to take into account the views expressed by the Bar, the Advocate General, the Additional Solicitor General and the Public Prosecutor in this regard. Lastly, the Bench expressed hope that the administrative wing will decide the matter expeditiously, so as to subserve the ends of justice.
