The Atelier House at Charlote Village, affectionately called by the working group as “warehouse”. The building is settled in an unusual site at Presidente Prudente city, whose dimensions are 7.00 x 21.00m, what has been taking place in the surrounding neighborhoods to the downtown area as a quick response to the high price of the land.Save this picture!© Pedro KokIn addition to lots of smaller measures, the site has undergone a gradual change of use. The primary residential use has been slowly dissipated by the insertion of sheds for general services. The desertification and depletion processes originated by these changes are the main causes of the neighbors’ (mostly elderly people nowadays) stress and insecurity.By preserving part of its residential occupation, the neighborhood still has some urban experience. The choice of the site for constructing the mixed-use building comes from this aspect: at the same time it is inserted in a centralized zone, its residential use adds forces to the attempt of maintaining the urban experience and occupation, which are vital for the public space and city’s quality of life.Save this picture!© Pedro KokSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Pedro KokThe program resolves itself in 220m², sheltering an atelier and a house. The building has 3 meters not mandatory front setback that provides a small urban gentleness. It enables a transition zone between the public and private space, offering to passers-by a staying area. A house without gates is an invitation to sidewalk meetings!Save this picture!© Pedro KokOn its sides, the building touches both lateral boundaries, solving lighting and ventilation with a zenith opening that runs along its longitudinal axis. The project has a volume that contains all hydraulic installation, circulation and services, which serves the two floors: on the ground level, bathrooms and stairs; on the upper-level, kitchen, services and bathrooms. A technical slab crowns this area and provides support for the necessary equipment. Another loose volume on the upper-level shelters the intimate area of the house.Save this picture!© Pedro KokThe masonry structure of concrete blocks is apparent. A massive slab, retreated from the lateral boundary, bears the residence and allows zenithal lighting. This lighting not only brightens the house, but also touches the ground level. In the upper-level, the front and the back closures are composed by hollowed elements resting on a metal beam. It makes the mooring of the building, allowing an entrance of lighting and cross-ventilation in its interior. The beam, in the back, is placed below the level of the slab, playing the role of a brise-soleil that protects from the northwest sun. Ahead of the building, the southeast sun draws the walls with its colored lights filtered by cobogós.Save this picture!© Pedro KokProject gallerySee allShow lessAre Your Revit Skills Up to Scratch?

Recent statistics compiled by the World Health Organization show that a baby born today in China, Japan or Korea has a longer healthy-life expectancy than a child born in the United States. (People in the U.S. live a little longer, but are sicker as they grow old.)Keep that in mind when you read that a federal judge in Texas has just shot down the Affordable Care Act. If upheld on appeal, his ruling would make life expectancy and other health statistics even worse for people in the U.S.Declining life expectancy is a measure of the deadly stranglehold that banks and corporations exercise in this country, which a generation ago boasted the highest standard of living in the world but now sees increased poverty and poverty-related diseases.Think of it! In three countries, all of which were greatly destroyed by war and two of which were also impoverished by generations of colonial rule, life has vastly improved over the last half century, now surpassing the U.S. in a vital measure of health.The Affordable Care Act, which this unelected judge in Texas has tried to kill, is not a national health plan of the type won in many capitalist countries by strong workers’ movements. Nor does it deliver the type of universal, free medical care instituted in countries where socialist revolutions came to power. But it has made it easier for people here with pre-existing conditions to get health insurance. It has also facilitated the expansion of Medicaid coverage to 10 million more poor people. Under the ACA, more money has been appropriated for Medicare as well as for Native people’s health. It has also made it easier for people to get cheaper generic drugs. All this is now under attack.Who gets to be a federal judge? The one in Texas responsible for this ruling, Judge Reed O’Connor, was appointed by George W. Bush. Besides ruling the entire Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, he has also ruled against laws supporting immigrants, transgender people and Native children. In other words, he’s a thorough reactionary who has been in a powerful position for decades, dispensing “justice” on behalf of the super-rich.There will be a movement to roll back this reactionary monster’s ruling. Not only is it a direct attack on the people’s right to health care, but it is also roiling the companies that make profits off of such care. It’s a contradiction of capitalism that the right-wing ideologues it spawns can shoot the system in the foot. The genuine people’s movement shouldn’t be on the defensive. Now is the time to fight for free, universal health care for all! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
