The second layer is a glass layer between balcony and interior. This Double-Layer Structure creates a special interior lighting at night and reduces the direct impact of wind.

Due to the special design of facade, people outside can see the human activities inside the house, but not very clearly. Those human activities are projected on glass facade but fractionalized by Hollow brick. The hollow bricks in here connect inside and outside, keeping a good privacy, and create a good link to neighbors at the same time. When looking out from the room, you can vaguely see the outdoor activities but not directly exposed to the streets.

This is an interesting complex and ambiguous interface between public and privacy.

We let the floor split-level, and Interact with each space by the stairs. With this design, air and light flow in each rooms and floors and people can also interact with each other easily.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Korea Teachers Pension Head Office / Tomoon Architects and EngineersArticlesExtending the Louvre / Carl Fredrik Svenstedt ArchitecteArticles Share Year:  ArchDaily Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” House in Tainan / FCHY Architect LabSave this projectSaveHouse in Tainan / FCHY Architect Lab CopyAbout this officeFCHY Architect LabOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidentialTainan CityTaiwan (ROC)Published on July 16, 2011Cite: “House in Tainan / FCHY Architect Lab” 16 Jul 2011.

WWP leader denounces police terror

first_img“Capitalism, Policing and State Violence” was the topic of a talk given by Lamont Lilly at the Alan Blueford Center for Justice in Oakland, Calif., on July 10. Lilly, a leading member of the Durham, N.C., branch of Workers World Party, was visiting Oakland to share his experiences in the fight against police terror. He had recently been on the front lines in Baltimore for a month, after the police killing of Freddie Grey, a 25-year-old African American. Prior to that, Lilly had also visited Ferguson, Mo., in support of the Black community there, in the aftermath of the grand jury nonindictment of Darren Wilson, the white police officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.Jada, who also organizes First Friday performances at the Blueford Center, performed a beautiful spoken word piece, to open the meeting.Lilly talked about the origination of U.S. policing as antebellum slave patrols, used to catch runaway enslaved African people. He pointed out that whether or not an individual officer may have some good intentions, the role of police under capitalism is to protect the property and the interests of the 1% or the ruling class. He detailed how the school-to-prison pipeline, supported by the police, feeds the coffers of the prison-industrial complex.Lilly is also a contributing writer for Workers World newspaper, as well as being published at truth-out.org and counterpunch.org. He is currently working on publishing a book of his original poems.
