The site of Voronoi’s Corrals (VNC HOUSE) is a large parcel of land (60,000sqm) on the Southern coast of the island of Milos, Greece, protected by the European treaty Natura 2000 which allowed us to build only 250sqm. Therefore, we scouted the site in search of micro-environments and identified the most potent locations for a variety of uses, taking into account the sun trajectories, the prevailing winds, the views, the sound of the sea, the geological morphology and the vernacular flora. These locations are the points that we chose to stimulate in order to develop our proposition, forming a non – Cartesian grid. The grid is based on the ideas of the mathematician Georgy Voronoi. Our Voronoi grid defined the geometric structure of our interventions, from the planting schedule, to the space layout, to the even floor pattern. Save this picture!© Stale EriksenThe location of the Main House (which we also call the Immersion Corral), coincides with the collision of two geological bodies. Milos island is of volcanic origin and its south coast is characterized by its jagged cliffs made of tuff stone. The form and material choice of the main house relates to these larger geological formations prevalent on the site. The entire shell is made by limestone blocks of a constant 4cm thickness and is shaped by the stacking, coursing and stepping of these blocks. The stepping of the roof is a result of negotiating the different inclinations of the roof using the long limestone blocks. The building makes no allusion to a vernacular past but to the primitive forms which exist on site. The volume’s extremities slope in different gradients following the inclination of the rocky outcrops and the direction of the views, thus diminishing the mass of the building. The limestone shell provides high thermal protection and, like the cliffs, ages naturally over long periods of time. This shell also conceals the mechanical elements used for drainage and ventilation. Save this picture!© Stale EriksenAn orchard of 550 olive trees was planted along with grape vines, vegetables and aromatic herbs. The vegetation is protected from wild goats with a winding stone wall of over 700 meters in length. As the topography slopes downwards towards the sea, the stone wall increases in height to reveal the façade of a guest house which is otherwise hidden from view by the olive field above it. The field is only interrupted by an incision in the ground, creating a small public space that can be transformed by sliding panels. The glass panels disappear into the walls to blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor life. The guest house is just an inhabited retaining wall in the landscape and in that sense is purely part of it. Save this picture!© Stale EriksenDuring our research we found that a third of the plot has been plowed and cultivated at least for over 60 years. Besides the extensive planting we did, we also engaged with the idea of the rural productivity of the land by employing mechanical strategies that give the project as much infrastructural independence to support its leisure activities without burdening the environment excessively.Save this picture!Courtesy of decaARCHITECTUREProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: MONU Magazine’s #18 Issue – ‘Communal Urbanism’Articles“Yad Labanim” (“A Memorial to the Sons”) Competition Entry / Eli GotmanArticles Share 2012 “COPY” Photographs Architects: decaARCHITECTURE Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/294680/voronois-corrals-decaarchitecture Clipboard Houses ArchDaily CopyAbout this officedecaARCHITECTUREOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodHouses3D ModelingGreecePublished on November 16, 2012Cite: “Voronoi’s Corrals / decaARCHITECTURE” 16 Nov 2012.

The run is set to run from October 2nd through October 28th, spanning 24 nights and 48 shows (two per night; one at 8 and one at 10:30).Robert Glasper’s Blue Note residency will feature a host of talented guests from the contemporary music world including Bilal, Terrace Martin, Christian McBride, Christian Scott, aTunde Adujah, Nicholas Payton, Chris Dave, Taylor McFerrin, Derrick Hodge, Kendrick Scott, Michael Moreno, Burniss Travis, Walter Smith, Rodney Green, Justin Tyson, and more to be announced.The extended New York stint will also include a number of special performances, including R+R=Now (featuring Terrace Martin, Christian Scott, aTunde Adujah, Derrick Hodge, Taylor McFerrin, and Justin Tyson), a tribute to Miles Davis dubbed Everything’s Beautiful, a tribute to Mulgrew Miller, and more. Additional special performances during the residency will be announced in the coming weeks.As Glasper tells Billboard about the residency,First of all, I couldn’t do this anywhere else. I came to New York tracking other people’s footsteps — and now it’s me and the musicians that I came up with who are making footprints for the next generation to follow. New York is the reason everything popped off for me. It’s the only place in the world with this heavy traffic of quintessential, true jazz and quintessential, true hip hop; the only place I could have met these people and made this music. …So I wanted to make this month about pulling together the threads of my tribes… because I was in the right places at the right times, and the wrong places at the right times! And because of that we made a sound that infected the world. So I’m taking over the Blue Note to tell that story; my music milestones, in the place it all began. And I’m mad excited for it. See below for the full schedule of shows and the currently confirmed themes and nightly lineups.

Luke Walton empathizes with Lakers veterans amid reports of team tension

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers “It’s a business so right now this is who we have, this is my group, this is the group I’m trying to lead out there to try and win ballgames,” he said. “That’s all I’ve ever done. I always have. I’ve had teammates every year be a part of trade deadline discussions and things of that nature and we’ve always figured out to just shield that away and play the game.”ZUBAC PLAYS THROUGH INJURYThe Lakers will continue to start Ivica Zubac even as the 21-year-old center deals with a broken finger.After an injury suffered against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, Zubac was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his left middle finger when he was examined via MRI over the weekend. But Lakers medical staffers have determined that Zubac should be able to play through it.“The doctors said he’s good,” Walton said. “It’s one of their decisions that they make, and they let me know he’s good to go. So we’ll get him out there and he’ll continue to start for us.”Zubac was not planning to wear a finger sleeve (as Rajon Rondo has been for his sprained finger), because he was worried about being inhibited on catching passes and shooting. He’s expected to receive continued therapy and treatment for the injured finger. INDIANAPOLIS — Luke Walton feels your pain.In his first media availability since reports leaked that the Lakers coach had a confrontation with several of his veterans, Walton took an empathetic stance. Without calling out names, he said he can appreciate that many of his players, including the ones who reportedly had a spat with him after Saturday night’s loss to Golden State, are going through a difficult time with the trade deadline approaching.“Part of what we believe in our culture is compassion,” Walton said. “So we totally understand what guys are going through this time of year, all the stuff that’s happening. A lot of our guys are on one-year deals, and they all want to play. So we understand all that, but we also understand we got our job to do and what we all signed up to do.”With their Tuesday night game against the Indiana Pacers, the Lakers are in the midst of a critical road trip before the All-Star break, currently sitting outside the playoff picture. In addition to the games, it’s been a tense time in the Lakers’ locker room: Nearly half the roster is subject to trade rumors, especially those involving potential deals for New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis.
