In 2012 WOHA was invited by the Taichung City Government and Feng Chia University to bring its exhibition “Breathing Architecture” to Taichung. This exhibition was part of a program initiated by the city government’s Gateway Project Masterplan which focused on the design principles of sustainability, low carbon emissions, and smart cities. The government was in the process of drafting new regulations to make Taichung a greener, more liveable city in its next phase of development. Following the exhibition, the developer Golden Jade, with Feng Chia University as an advisor, commissioned WOHA to design a green and sustainable mixed-use development in the heart of the city, the first of its kind in Taichung. Save this picture!© Kuomin LeeSky Green a mixed-use development located at the heart of Taichung in a densely developed and vibrant neighborhood. The site is made up of two rectangular plots, one facing the main city thoroughfare, Gongyi Road, and the other facing Daying Street, a quieter secondary street. The development consists of two 26-storey residential towers with apartment units from level 4 onwards, as well as retail spaces. To connect to its setting, and the hustle and bustle of the streets, the building’s retail spaces are located from ground level to level 3. The shops have staggered patterned glass cladding to give an urban backdrop to the tree-lined pedestrian walkways and modern outdoor street furniture. Save this picture!© Kuomin LeeAway from the busy street life, an intimate, serene landscaped courtyard greets the residents as they return to their homes. Above the retail shops rise the two residential towers as well as generous recreation facilities for indoor and outdoor activities. Both towers have deeply recessed windows and the façades are enveloped with protruding balconies with trees, sky gardens and mesh screens that serve as a trellis for green creeper plants. Landscaping is treated as a key material in creating the building envelope for the residential towers. The façade elements create deep sun-shading and the greenery acts as an active and living interface between the interior and exterior environment.

Every unit is visually connected to the greenery outside their apartment windows. A series of open, yet sheltered sky gardens, terraces, balconies, and planters create a breathable façade and visual interest, enhancing the real estate value of these apartments in a densely built-up area while providing spatial relief to apartment owners. Save this picture!© Kuomin LeeThe architectural strategies of Sky Green are new for Taichung, but they have been developed by WOHA over the last 25 years, and many prototypes have been successfully built in Singapore and other regions. The design of Sky Green has been adapted to suit the local culture and subtropical climate, as well as to ensure safety during earthquakes and typhoons. As the first high-density development in Taichung that also provides high amenity with its recreational facilities and ample integrated green spaces, Sky Green will be influential in defining the new benchmark of sustainability and skyrise greenery for the city’s future developments.Save this picture!© Kuomin LeeProject gallerySee allShow lessSquamish Nation Unveils 11 Residential Towers for VancouverArchitecture NewsTwoo Cuups Cafe / Fon StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Taichung City, Taiwan (ROC)Location to be used only as a reference.

Daily Dirt: March 25, 2013

first_imgHere is your outdoor news bulletin for March 25, 2013:Whitewater U.S. Open Cut ShortA system malfunction at the Duke energy hydroelectric power plant put the kibosh on the second day of this past weekend’s Bank of America Whitewater U.S. Open Slalom and Wildwater races at the Nantahala Outdoor Center. The station was unable to make the water releases Sunday, meaning there was not enough water flowing through the NOC to support the two scheduled races so they were cancelled and winners chosen based on Saturday’s scores. Competitors may have actually breathed a sigh of relief to not have to race in Sunday’s conditions. Let’s hope Duke can fix their issues before the NOC hosts two other high-profile events: the U.S. Freestyle Team Trials in late April and the ICF Freestyle Kayaking World Championships in September.The Citizen-Times has a full report, including a list of winners.Diversity in Conservation, (or lack thereof)The lack of diversity in the outdoors is something this magazine has covered before, and is no secret. In a piece in the Washington Post, Darryl Fears puts the spotlight on lack of diversity in the conservation sector. No one can deny that most conservation groups are made up of rich, white men, even though minorities communities – African American, Latino, Native American – are exposed to a disproportionate amount of the nation’s toxic pollution. The article also explains the long history of discrimination in the conservation and green movement along with what groups like the the African American Environmentalist Association are doing about it.Virginia Mountain Bike Trail UpdateThe Richmond Times-Dispatch claims the Virginia Mountain Bike Trail is coming together. BRO reported on Chris Scott’s attempt to build singletrack from one end of the state to the other back in September (worth a look, there’s a video!), and the RTD article does not provide much more info despite its claims. What it does do is provide Scott with a microphone to call to action all those who want to be involved in the project, mainly on the trail maintenance end. WIth 480 miles of trail to keep clear, that is the biggest challenge facing the completion of the trail. That and not having to carry all your camping gear with you up 65,000 feet of total elevation gain, but that’s an issue for another time. Also, reading the quotes I can imaging Scott’s mellow voice and atitude coming through my brain. It makes me chuckle.last_img read more

Day Two – Women’s Amateur: School’s out for last 16 qualifier Lottie

first_img Lottie Woad admits the disruption to normal life as well as the golfing calendar has given her an unexpected chance to contend at the English Women’s Amateur Championship.The girls’ squad player is one of seven current England internationals to make it through to the last 16 of the women’s event at Woodhall Spa Golf Club in Lincolnshire.Other top contenders include defending champion Ellen Hume, 2017 winner Lily May Humphreys current British Women’s amateur champion Emily Toy and Mimi Rhodes (main picture).A one-over par round of 74 on the Hotchkin Course allowed Surrey schoolgirl Woad to take her place in the knockout stages.Combined with a first round score of one-over par (73) on the Bracken Course, the 16-year-old qualified as third seed.Ordinarily, the Farnham Golf Club member would have missed the original date of the women’s amateur as it clashed with GCSE exams in May.But with the onset of the coronavirus, the closure of schools and then a re-arranged date for the championship, she was able to tee it up at the home of England Golf.After comfortably making the knockout stages, Woad admitted: “I haven’t played in this event before as I was at school.“I would have missed it this year too with GCSE’s, so that’s the one positive from all of this.“I was taking exams in Maths, English, Science, Geography, PE, Spanish and Design and Technology.“I’m not upset about the Spanish as I’d forgotten it anyway. The language is the quickest thing to go after a break!”Woad played her final 13 holes on the Hotchkin in three under par to ease any pressure following four bogeys in five holes at the start of her round.The teenager is not the only player on form going into the match play.Hertfordshire’s Hume fired another excellent round of 70 for a three-under par score on the Hotchkin to go into the match play as second seed behind Thalia Kirby who maintained her place at the top of the leaderboard from day one.Woburn’s Megan Dennis also found a rich vein of form to shoot one better on the Hotchkin – a sparkling five under par round of 68.Dennis said: “I finished with three birdies so that was really good.“To be honest I was just playing and sticking to my strategy. I hadn’t played here before the practice round and really enjoyed it.“It definitely is a really good test but if you stick to the plan, miss the bunkers and play within yourself you can do well.”Full details on today’s scores, the qualifiers, the draw and timings for tomorrow’s round of 16 can be found on the England Golf Championship homepage. 29 Jul 2020 Day Two – Women’s Amateur: School’s out for last 16 qualifier Lottie last_img read more

Woods quiets doubters with a flick of his wrists

first_imgTIES NICKLAUS’ RECORD FOR TOUR WINS—Jack Nicklaus, left, talks with Tiger Woods after Woods won the Memorial golf tournament at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, June 3. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak) With one flick of his wrists, Woods reminded everyone of who he was and what he has done.Woods slid a 60-degree sand wedge under a ball hidden by tall grass behind the 16th green, popped the ball straight up into the air where it seemed to hang for an instant, and then watched as it rolled ever so slowly toward the cup before dropping in for a 50-foot birdie that tied him for the lead at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday.If that birdie served notice, then another on a sneaky-fast 10-foot downhill putt at the 18th assured him of his fifth victory at the tournament that Jack Nicklaus built.So, Tiger was asked, do you think you’re back?“I won,” he joked with a wide smile. “I’m sure by Tuesday I’ll be retired and done, and then by the time I tee it up at the U.S. Open (at Olympic Club in San Francisco in 11 days) it might be something different. But I’ll let you guys figure that out.”Adding to the weight of the moment, the win tied Woods with Nicklaus—the tournament founder and host who handed him the crystal trophy on the 18th green—with 73 tour wins for second behind Sam Snead’s record 82.Woods said it was “awfully special” to tie Nicklaus at the Golden Bear’s own tournament.“Well, he had to rub it in my face right here, didn’t he?” Nicklaus cracked.Then he added, “The last time he won here three years ago, he came here struggling a little bit and just absolutely blitzed it. And he did it again this week.”Woods, four shots back and in fourth place at the start of the final round, closed with a 67 to match the best round of the day. He also saved his best for last, birdieing three of the final four holes under pressure conditions to make up a two-shot deficit as he teed off on the 15th hole.After a big drive, he hit a 3-iron second shot on the par-5 15th to 40 feet past the flag. He two-putted for birdie. At the 16th, he hit an 8-iron that rode the wind and bounced off the green and about 15 feet into deep grass. A little too soft a shot and he would be left with a treacherous, twisting putt for par. Catch it a little thin and the ball could easily run all the way through the green and into a pond.The sonic boom that erupted when the ball fell shook the whole course. The rest of the field, those who didn’t already know anyway, were reminded that Woods still can summon the thunder.“Well, obviously, I knew something was going on up in front,” said Rory Sabbatini, who held a one-shot lead until Woods’ chip-in.Rickie Fowler, one of the game’s most popular young players, was paired with Woods in a grouping that drew thousands of spectators. Fowler suffered through a miserable day that would end with him shooting a career-worst 84. But at the 16th, he knew he was witnessing some magic he’d seen before from Woods.“It came out perfect,” Fowler said of the shot. “It landed right on the crown of that ridge there—and the rest is history.”Nicklaus called it a shot for the ages.“I’ve seen a lot of shots in golf,” he said during the presentation ceremony. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better one.”Woods sounded as if even he didn’t expect it to fall.“The shot was obviously difficult, but it wouldn’t have been so bad if I had a good lie,” Woods said. “The lie was just a little marginal where it brought the water into play. That’s the reason I took such a big cut at it. I went for it, I pulled it off and for it to land as soft as it did was kind of a surprise.”Still, he was only tied. While he was parring the 17th hole, Sabbatini bogeyed the 16th.Woods striped a 3 wood off the tee at the testy, uphill, par-4 closing hole. Then he carved an iron to the back of the green and watched it follow the contour of the green back to almost pin high. He slid the ball in on the high side for a 9-under 279.Andres Romero also had a 67 to pull into a tie with Sabbatini (72) for second, two shots back.Woods hadn’t won a full-field event since 2009 before taking the Arnold Palmer Invitational in late March. He had missed a cut and finished tied for 40th in his only two tournaments after that, including the Masters. The whispers about his professional demise were growing louder.But then came the shot at 16, with Woods orchestrating the cheers with several of his trademark fist pumps.After he had accepted the trophy from Nicklaus and the $1.1 million that went with it, and after he had moved to No. 4 in the world rankings, Woods was asked if at 36 he still has enough to play at the same level of excellence from his earlier days.“Uh-huh,” he said.What he had just done did all the speaking for him.TIMES HAVE CHANGED: Counting only what Woods has won in his 73 victories from 1996-2012, Woods has earned $66,319,241. Nicklaus received $2,380,277 just for his 73 victories between 1962 and 1986. by Rusty MillerDUBLIN, Ohio (AP)—For those who thought Tiger Woods’ run as the world’s best golfer was over, the 747-sized roar that emanated from the 16th green at Muirfield Village likely shocked them to their senses.last_img read more

As Expected, Marine Park Back To the Drawing Board

first_imgBy Marion Lynch RED BANK – It’s back to the drawing board for the Borough Council’s efforts to restore the area of Marine Park where the clay tennis courts are located. Supporters of the courts won a battle this week in their years-long fight to preserve them when Councilwoman Linda Schwabenbauer announced at Monday’s Borough Council meeting that they would reject all three proposals for projects in the area of Marine Park where the storm-damaged courts are located.The three members of the council’s parks and recreation committee – Schwabenbauer, Kathy Horgan and Edward Zipprich – reviewed three proposals, and the plan that scored the highest was the one least favored by residents.“The Jetsun proposal came out on top numerically,” Schwabenbauer said, “but the preponderance of public opinion was not in favor.”The committee’s only option, she said is to reject all three proposals. A formal resolution will be on the agenda for the Nov. 23 meeting.The proposal submitted by Jetsun Enterprises, a group of private investors, was the most ambitious of the three submitted to the council’s request for proposals (RFP) back in April.That plan called for the construction of an 18-hole miniature golf course, synthetic, year-round ice rink, a food concession stand, a boathouse offering canoe and kayak rentals; there would also be driven golf carts to take patrons to and from offsite parking.The other plans call for rebuilding the tennis courts and operating them independently from the borough, providing the borough with a portion of the proceeds; and a boathouse and catering hall that would offer boat rentals and recreational and educational program sponsored by the Navesink River Rowing Club and Navesink Maritime Heritage Association.When evaluating the three plans the parks and rec committee relied on quantifiable criteria in making its determination. Using that matrix, the Jetsun proposal was the clear winner, “by a head and shoulders,” Schwabenbauer told the Two River Times last week.
 Mayor Pasquale Menna said Monday that it would be “back to the drawing board” in the borough’s efforts to restore the area of the park surrounding the courts. The red clay tennis courts, constructed in the 1930s, were severely damaged in Super Storm Sandy in 2012 and have been unusable for the past three years.In response to a question from Councilwoman Cindy Burnham, Schwabenbauer the council’s “hands were tied” and could not select the second best proposal.“We’re just following the law and public opinion. Now we’re going to start over from scratch,” said Horgan.Burnham stressed that “RFPs cost money,” and said that state law allows municipalities to lease municipal property to a nonprofit if they meet certain criteria. “Which, I do believe the tennis courts meet. So you could accept a nonprofit without going out to an RFP.”To Burnham’s charges that the RFP process was “not transparent” and that residents “did not know what was going on,” Schwabenbauer responded, “I think 83 people knew the process well enough to send some letters. The committee received 83 letters, 12 emails and “lots of phone calls” from residents, she reported.Supporters of the courts formed a non-profit organization, Red Bank Clay Tennis Courts Association, represented by attorney Donald Pepe.“We don’t need another RFP,” Pepe told the council. The group recommends a public-private partnership to repair and maintain the courts. “The money is there to fix these courts.”More than a dozen people in attendance held up “Save the Courts” signs at one point in the discussion.“If the borough doesn’t have the funding, there is private money available,” Pepe later told The Two River Times.John Burton contributed to this story.last_img read more

first_imgThe Bears scored a quick two points out of the timeout before once again fouling Timmer, who buried two more free throws to finish the day 8-of-8 at the free-throw line. On a last-chance effort, Missouri State’s Rhodes hit a 3-pointer to pull the Bears within two points at 60-58. After missing a pair of free throws, Drake got a stop at the other end of the court before McGlynn made his final free throw to secure the Bulldogs’ victory.  Box Score (HTML) The Bulldogs were led by senior Reed Timmer (New Berlin, Wis.) who had a game-high 24 points on  7-of-18 shooting.

A layup by Timmer broke the Bears run before Drake forced four back-to-back empty possessions for Missouri State to take back the lead, 44-43, on a pair of free throws by senior Casey Schlatter (Iowa Falls, Iowa). Schlatter scored four points but held keep possessions alive with five of the Bulldogs’ 11 offensive rebounds. “I’ve never been one to shy away from that,” McGlynn said. “It’s a team defense effort tonight but it came down to him and I and I had to make a play.” “To win this game is huge, but the way we won it was huge for our guys and hopefully it’s a huge step forward,” said Drake head coach Niko Medved.
