Merry go Round / Ira Koers

Although ideas about recreation and the design of the landscape have changed over the years, the typology of the holiday cottage has hardly altered at all. Ever since the recreational outing of several days or more came into vogue in the sixties, we have seen the same mini-version of the standard home. Whereas the confined space of a boat or caravan has led to clever design solutions, the country cottage has never developed an identity of its own. Save this picture!© Bureau Ira KoersThe design of the Merry-Go-Round gives new meaning to the holiday cottage by taking the traditional floor plan with its rooms opening onto a central hallway and turning it inside out. The rooms are replaced by eight open alcoves in which furniture, colour, light, material, lines of sight and views of the outdoor surroundings are bundled into one compact, fixed interior. The alcoves are connected by a corridor that runs all around the perimeter of the dwelling and opens onto the landscape. By adjusting the façade, which is comprised of shutters, the vacationing residents of the Merry-Go-Round can determine the view and their privacy themselves.Save this picture!© Bureau Ira KoersProject gallerySee allShow lessContemporary Design in Detail: Sustainable EnvironmentsArticlesGoogle World BuilderArticles Share Year:  The Netherlands Architects: Ira Koers Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Bureau Ira Koers+ 26 Share Photographs Projects “COPY” CopyHouses•Buinen, The Netherlands Houses 2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Merry go Round / Ira KoersSave this projectSaveMerry go Round / Ira Koers Merry go Round / Ira Koers CopyAbout this officeIra KoersOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesBuinen3D ModelingThe NetherlandsPublished on October 15, 2009Cite: “Merry go Round / Ira Koers” 15 Oct 2009.

Harvard Foundation recognizes students, faculty, race relations

first_imgForty-five students, two race relations tutors, and a distinguished faculty member were honored by the Harvard Foundation for exceptional contributions to improving intercultural and race relations at Harvard College on April 30, as part of the annual Harvard Foundation Student/Faculty Awards Ceremony and Aloian Memorial Dinner, held in Quincy House.Sandra Naddaff, director of studies in the literature concentration, senior lecturer on literature and comparative literature, and master of Mather House, was honored with the 2010 Faculty of the Year Award.Said S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, “When President Derek Bok established the Harvard Foundation in 1980, it was his wish that in the absence of race and ethnic houses, such as those at Yale and Princeton, Harvard’s residential Houses would become multicultural centers, and beacons of intercultural enlightenment with the support of their directors, or masters,” said Counter adding, “No one has exemplified the mission and spirit of the Harvard Foundation in the Harvard Houses more than Sandra Naddaff. In addition to being a distinguished faculty member and administrator, she has been a source of great inspiration and support to the foundation and our mission to improve intercultural and racial understanding in the Houses.”Faculty, administrators, House masters, and students nominated the student award recipients, and the winners were then chosen by the faculty and student advisory committee of the Harvard Foundation. Seniors who demonstrated outstanding commitment to improving intercultural life at the College and beyond the University received Distinguished Senior Awards. Harvard Foundation Insignia Awards were given to students who displayed a sustained effort to improving racial and ethnic harmony at the College. The foundation also recognized underclassmen who made notable contributions to the intercultural life at Harvard College with Certificates of Recognition.Jacqueline C. Hairston ’10 was elected by fellow students to receive the Harvard Foundation Peer Recognition Award for commendable leadership, and Race Relations Tutors Raquel Kennon of Pforzheimer House and Carl Miller of Eliot House were also recognized with awards for their intercultural initiatives in the residence halls. Counter presented the Director’s Award to Nworah Ayogu ’10 to honor his outstanding contributions to undergraduate student activities and four years of dedicated service to the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations.last_img read more
