The project’s location, in the center of Stavanger’s historical wooden house district, produced interesting architectural challenges. With the district regulated as a special zone for preservation, the project aimed to knit the language of the local vernacular with that of contemporary architecture.Save this picture!Courtesy of helen & hardThe building was divided into three volumes creating a rhythm that echos and interacts with the historic houses across the street. The roof forms terminate lower than might be expected, breaking up the volume and creating a relationship with neighboring houses. Wood siding has been used as a façade material while parti-walls and floors are constructed from concrete.Save this picture!PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessTechno Group Headquarters / Symbiosis Designs LTDArticlesEVERREST / Simon TakasakiArticlesProject locationAddress:Stavanger, NorwayLocation to be used only as a reference.

Indonesian COVID-19 cases top 1,000

first_imgJakarta still has the majority of cases with 598 positives – an increase of 83. Other provinces with a significant number of cases include West Java with 98 cases, Banten (84), East Java (66) and Central Java (43).South Sulawesi is now the hardest-hit region outside Java island with 29 positive cases.While experts had called on the government to impose a lockdown on regions with a high infection rate to reduce the spread, Yurianto said, citizens should increase their awareness and comply with the government’s appeal to stay at home and maintain physical distance in social interactions.“I am optimistic and really believe [we can overcome the virus] because we actually work together, which is our basic modality as a nation,” Yurianto said.The government is also continuing its efforts to trace people that have come into close contact with people who have contracted the disease, as well as launching rapid testing. (mfp)Topics : Indonesian health authorities have confirmed 1,046 COVID-19 positive cases as of Friday, an increase of 153 from the previous count a day earlier.The number of fatalities caused by the disease has also risen by nine cases to 87. Meanwhile, the number of people having recovered from COVID-19 has also increased to 46.“There was a significant addition of cases with 153 new cases. This illustrates that there are still transmissions of this disease within the community due to close contact with sources of the disease,” said Achmad Yurianto, the government’s spokesperson for COVID-19-related matters, during a press briefing on Friday.last_img read more

What’s next for Neymar?

first_imgCBF vice president Francisco Noveletto was quoted by Brazilian media on Tuesday as saying he was willing to “bet” that Neymar would quit.“He doesn’t have the psychological condition to face the Copa America and journalists,” Noveletto said.That prompted CBF president Rogerio Caboclo to insist Wednesday — for the second time this week — that Neymar would play in the tournament despite the rape accusations.While some social media users looked to conspiracy theories to explain Neymar’s injury, most put the incident down to fate.“Fate has brought a solution to a problem that neither (coach) Tite nor the CBF or Neymar himself had the courage to solve for the sake of the Brazilian team and especially the player — to remove him from the eye of the storm,” wrote a Twitter user.– Sidelined –Neymar is scheduled to return to the football field with PSG on August 3 for the Champions Trophy game against Rennes in Shenzhen, China.But it is not clear if he will have physically recovered by then. It took Real Madrid youngster Vinicius Junior, who suffered a ruptured ankle ligament in March, two months to return to the game.And there is also the chance Neymar could miss the match for a non-sporting reason as he faces police investigations stemming from the alleged rape.“I ask myself why he has had so many physical hic-cups in recent years when he was injured very little early in his career,” Coelho said, referring to the foot injuries that sidelined Neymar for several months this year and last season.Rumors have circulated in recent weeks that Neymar could return to FC Barcelona, but his recurring injuries and tarnished image could put off the Catalan club where Neymar played from 2013 to 2017 before his record 222 million euro transfer to PSG.Brazil’s national coach Tite, who has described Neymar as “indispensable” to the national team, but also not “irreplaceable”, is looking for a substitute.Vinicius Junior or Lucas could be called up. Another alternative is Ajax Amsterdam’s David Neres.Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: NeymarRio de Janeiro, Brazil | AFP | Forced out of the Copa America by injury, star striker Neymar faces an uncertain playing future in Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil where he is engulfed in an alleged rape scandal.Neymar vehemently denies the accusation, which has dominated headlines and dogged Brazil’s preparations for the Latin American tournament starting June 14.Here’s what could happen next for the world’s most expensive footballer.– Image tarnished –Beyond the potential sporting consequences of missing Copa America, Neymar’s image has taken a serious blow.Shortly before the 27-year-old player was injured in the Brazil-Qatar friendly in Brasilia on Wednesday, his accuser told a Brazilian broadcaster that she had been the victim of “aggression together with rape.”Hours later a video circulated on social media showing the young woman hitting Neymar in a hotel room and accusing him of assaulting her the day before.Sponsors are clearly worried. Mastercard has cancelled an advertising campaign starring Neymar that was to be broadcast during the Copa America, Spanish media reported. Nike expressed its “deep concern” on Monday.“Only football can save him,” Fox Sports commentator Paulo Vinicius Coelho told AFP.“It’s enough that he focuses on his game. He showed this season with PSG that he is still capable of playing great matches.”– Fake or fate? –Few Brazilian football fans or commentators appear to believe Neymar faked his injury so he could pull out of the Copa America due to the rape allegation.“I don’t believe in a fake injury, for me the image clearly evokes a ruptured ankle ligament,” Coelho said.But the timing raised eyebrows, coming shortly after a senior Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) official had publicly suggested Neymar would pull out of the tournament.last_img read more

Hey America, here’s a team you can really love

first_imgOr at least get them a lot closer.“We fought our way back into this game, and that’s what our team is all about,” veteran defender Steve Cherundolo said. “We fight for every inch of playing field there is.”Fans have insisted for years that soccer is on the verge of becoming America’s game and critics have always shot back with “Oh yeah. When?”Kids have been playing for more than a generation now, and still the game is well below the NFL, NBA and Major League Baseball on the U.S. sports Richter scale.But it is growing and gaining interest, there’s no denying that.More tickets for this World Cup were bought by Americans than fans in any other nation except South Africa, despite the considerable expense to get here. Before the game, Americans marched proudly through the streets outside the stadium, dressed in red, white and blue from their Uncle Sam-hatted heads to their toes.Back home, the World Cup is getting the kind of wall-to-wall TV coverage usually reserved for the other football’s big event, the Super Bowl. People went out of their way to watch the match, some from the comfort of their homes, others at bars and restaurants.America’s team didn’t disappoint.Part of the reason soccer has been so slow to take off in the United States—aside from the fact that, for much of the last century, the national team was about as good as Albania’s—is that it’s nothing like “our” football. We’re used to big, tough guys grinding their way to down the field. We revel in the game’s big hits and its brute physicality, and revere players who are only missing the proverbial lunch pail.The U.S. men may not have the shoulder pads and helmets, but they have the same mentality—and similar battle scars.Goalkeeper Tim Howard will be feeling Emile Heskey’s shoes on his bruised ribs whenever he breathes the next few days. The England forward slammed feet-first into Howard’s chest in the first half, a pain Howard described as “agony” and that left him writhing on the ground for several minutes.Yet Howard played on, and it was his big saves more than anything that ensured the Americans would finish as England’s equal. For one day, at least.“We’re a resilient side,” said Howard, who was named the man of the match. “We’re a tough side, and on our day, we can put a good performance in.”Make no mistake, England is a better team. Just as Spain was last summer, when the Americans upset the reigning European champions at the Confederations Cup. After Steven Gerrard scored in the fourth minute to put England up 1-0, most people figured the game—or at least the result—was a done deal.But there’s something about adversity that brings out the best in this team, a trait near and dear to every American’s heart.“The funny thing is, we talk about ‘Don’t concede early, Don’t concede early.’ And man, it’s been our trademark lately,” captain Carlos Bocanegra said. “Credit to our guys to stick to the plan and keep fighting.”Some of the English players used the word “luck” to describe the draw, and they may be right. England goalkeeper Robert Green did muff Clint Dempsey’s 25-yard shot that tied it up, after all.But 50 years from now, when fans are remembering the day when American soccer’s fortunes turned, the result is all that will matter. REPRESENTING U.S.A—National soccer team goalkeeper Tim Howard, left, laughs as forward Jozy Altidore, right, looks on, during a news conference in Irene, South Africa, June 10. by Nancy ArmourRUSTENBURG, South Africa (AP)—You want an America’s Team to get behind, America? Here you go.Scrappy, determined and not about to back down to anybody—not even big, bad England—the U.S. men hung on for a 1-1 draw at the World Cup on Saturday night that was every bit as good as a blowout victory. It’s the kind of effort the USA loves, and it might just give the Americans the major-league status they’ve been fighting for the last, oh, 20 years.last_img read more
