first_imgFormer Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai, Jr.The authorities of Lifesaving-Liberia, Incorporated have selected Mr. Brownie J. Samukai, Minister of National Defense, to serve as keynote speaker at a program marking this year’s National Beach Safety Week, which begins November 24-29.Alfred S. Jones, a retired Captain of the Armed Forces of Liberia who was previously assigned with the Liberian Coast Guard, is Lifesaving-Liberia’s executive director. He said Minister Samukai will address a stakeholders conference that will follow the awareness campaign on November 28 at one of the local beaches under the theme, “A Call for Increased Efforts to Prevent the Risk of Drowning in Liberia.” He said the exercise is to highlight the safety of the aquatic environment and its economic benefit to the government.Lifesaving-Liberia, Inc. is a non-profit drowning prevention organization dedicated to improving water safety by working with aquatic recreational facilities, local communities, private and public schools as well as individuals at risk since 2010.“Drowning is a serious threat to public health, because we have observed that hundreds of young citizens and foreign residents have died by drowning in Liberia every year especially at the commencement of the biggest summer beach season on November 29, the birth anniversary of the country’s 18th President William V.S. Tubman,” said the retired Captain.Jones attributed the high rate of drowning to the proliferation of unsafe beaches operating in Monrovia and its environs. Currently, he said there are 52 of such beaches and 19 swimming pools operating in Monrovia and its surroundings without lifeguards or other safety measures. “This accounts for a significant number of drownings,” he said.Jones disclosed that a representative from the Department of Tourism at the Ministry of Information will be on hand to educate beach goers on some swimming methods, “just to reduce some of the personal risks in and around waters.”He said there is a stronger need for beach and water safety education for people who engage in aquatic recreation and other water-related activities to identify the risks associated with the water environment and take appropriate measures.According to Jones, Lifesaving-Liberia, Inc. will formally launch the campaign on November 24, with hundreds of school children parading through the principal streets of Monrovia to one of the beaches where Minister Samukai is expected to serve as guest speaker. On November 25-27, there will be a community level awareness targeting six vulnerable communities including New Kru Town, Popo Beach, Doe Community, Battery Factory, Clara Town and West Point communities.He said the event will be climaxed at one of the beaches with a series of activities including rescue and resuscitation demonstrations to be followed by a lifeguard recruitment exercise and the registration of kids and non-swimmers for swimming lessons.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img

In this house we always fled to make “a nice home”. I think Art is not better or worse for its beauty but the degree of emotion that arises. Beauty is something superficial and, in most cases, false. My obsession in this case was to make a total abstraction (which has nothing to do with minimalism), evoking the same mixed emotions we feel when we see the black monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey”, Stonehenge, or the black smoke in “Lost”(tv serie). It is a black box that absorbs light, with no cap on the edges, with holes instead of windows. No proportion, its geometry is strictly demanded by the internal function. I tend to be formalistic in my architecture, but here I wanted to approach it as something that comes out of nowhere, as if I had never studied architecture. Not a house or a sculpture, I don´t know exactly what it is, and I don´t need to know it. And so makes me feel a restlessness sensation that keeps me going adore Architecture. Save this picture!© Ángel Luis TenderoIt is divided in two different parts. The lower floor, linked to the terrain, and the upper floor resting on it. The terrain sloping slightly downwards, situating the area of the lounge-office-kitchen below the level of the road. Thanks to an elevated fold towards the road, it is possible to create an artificial skyline thus hiding the dwellings which surround the plot. This part is flexible, organic and open. Over it, a pure black steel parallelepiped, which lodges the rooms. This part is rigid, artificial and closed. The resulting effect is a pure enigmatic piece, which stands on a small artificial hill.Save this picture!© Ángel Luis TenderoProject gallerySee allShow less2011 AIA Honor Award / The Diana Center / Weiss ManfrediArticlesArchitecture WeekArticles Share Photographs 2010 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/126485/martin-house-alt-arquitectura Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/126485/martin-house-alt-arquitectura Clipboard CopyHouses•Madrid, Spaincenter_img ArchDaily Year:  Projects “COPY” Houses “COPY” Architects: ALT arquitectura Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeALT arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMadridHousesSpainPublished on April 11, 2011Cite: “Martin House / ALT arquitectura” 11 Apr 2011.
