The result would be, first of all, a construction that is more enclosed than most of the office’s projects which seek the greatest transparency possible, on all the facades.

It was decided to place a single volume perpendicular to the street, turned entirely to the side. The front façade is blind, constituting the “house without glass corners” desired by the client. On the ground floor, looking out to the pool and to a grand terrace through a glass curtain of sliding doors, there is the living room, dining room and an office. On the upper floor, also facing an open terrace, are the bedrooms. All of the intimate area of the house is protected by brises panels that can remain completely open and offer a magical aspect to the folding wooden wall. Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe house is named after the bricks that were taken from demolitions. The aged recycled blocks give a more rustic and more robust appearance than new products and the history is impregnated in the material even before the house is used. Besides the concerns relative to environmental comfort, ever-present in the history of modern Brazilian architecture, such as the use of terraces to shade glass facades and sun protection with brises, the little brick house incorporates more technological precepts, such as solar energy panels arranged on the roof.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessCultural Connect: Key to Sustained Vitality / Rocco Design Architects LimitedArticlesOver the Counter / Tamás Szentirmai, János VágiArticles Share Projects Brick House / Marcio KoganSave this projectSaveBrick House / Marcio Kogan Architects: Marcio Kogan Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeMarcio KoganOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSao PauloBrazilPublished on August 29, 2010Cite: “Brick House / Marcio Kogan” 29 Aug 2010.

Editor of provincial newspaper targeted by campaign of intimidation

This has included a recent arson attack on the newspaper which the police refuse to investigate.”We call on the Moroccan authorities to responded to the complaint brought by Brahim Fillali and to quickly catch those responsible for setting fire to his newspaper,” the press freedom organisation said, adding, “it is unacceptable that a journalist is unable to work freely and fears for his physical safety.”The intimidation began with a threatening letter on 26 November, just after Fillali had brought out the third issue of Ici et Maintenant. Then, on 3 June, he received an oral summons from the criminal investigation department of the Ouarzazate gendarmerie and was accused of writing about matters “affecting Moroccan institutions and national integrity.” He ignored two such warnings.Finally, the newspaper’s premises were set on fire on 23 June. Fillali immediately tried to file a complaint with the gendarmerie in Msemrir, but the police there refused to register it. The officer in charge said the investigation could not begin until Fillali identified a suspect – an attitude contrary to all logic and conventional procedure in police investigation.Published every two weeks and containing articles in both French and Arabic, Ici et Maintenant claims to be independent and self-financed. It has been clearly committed to covering human rights and other sensitive issues in the Ouarzazate area, including police violence against the population of Tinghir and a miners’ strike in Imini.Fillali attributes the harassment to the fact that his newspaper sided with the miners in Imini in their strike against the mine’s management over alleged embezzlement. He told Reporters Without Borders he now fears for his life. News April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
