Cocooning – An active Self-Territorialization protecting oneself from the changing outdoor environment. Save this picture!© Huh IkSave this picture!First Floor Plan”Cocooning phenomenon” is a term made by German Social Psychologist S. Popcon, and it stands for the habit of silkworm hiding inside a cocoon and protecting it-self from the outside. As modern society gets complicated, people pursue the intimate comfort of oneself through a slightly enclosed place than excessively exposed exterior activities.Save this picture!© Kyungsub Shin’New-Cocooning tribe’ is different from the Enclosed type Cocooning tribe of the past, who habitually seclude and escape, and actively spends their hobby and leisure time in its own space. Also. Modern people want a substantive relaxing space where they can guarantee the personal environment in amid of network society which is overly exposed with information.Save this picture!© Huh IkThis kind of modern people’s cocooning secures personal privacy by it-self inside the complex city center and wraps its body from the surroundings and makes its own lifestyle. In the process of commercialization of the quiet exclusive residential area, Banpo Cocooning is an architectural strategy where houses and the city reconciliate and co-exist, avoiding gentrification phenomenon.Save this picture!© Kyungsub Shin’Nudge’ Effect inside the changing city center – Cocooning gradually induces a positive change of urban landscape little by little inside the unconsciousness with soft invasion not coercion. By changing ‘Daily Landscape’, it makes people to form its own pattern. This little change inside people’s unconsciousness always tries to find a meaning in everything, and in other words, it evokes kind of an Apophenia effect which is a tendency of finding a pattern in amid of disorder and brings new vitality and change around urban area.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinSave this picture!Third Floor PlanInnermost ‘Cocooning’ of its own inside City center – The plot has located between the 4th-5th level high residential areas deeply inside the road. This highly dense residential buildings standing on the ground except for the parking space are keen of privacy invasion. It’s hard to handle the problem which the inside of surrounding multiplex and multifamily houses could be seen and psychological insecurity only with the legal separation space and the face blocking structure blocking the view from the window.Save this picture!© Huh IkTherefore, the residential buildings inside dense city center are requiring an enclosed boundary which could protect the invasion of their privacy. Inside the boundary of ‘Cocoon’ with flexible air layer, the inner story of its own makes composure which could be sustainably generated and at the same time protects privacy from the surrounding buildings. This kind of ‘Cocooning’ makes boundary outwardly according to the privacy relationship with the surrounding buildings inside the residential exclusive area but makes its inner individual landscape and co-exists inwardly.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Loopvillage / MAaPSelected ProjectsHouse in Nakagyo 02 / KoyoriSelected Projects Share South Korea Cocooning Building / L’eau Design Cocooning Building / L’eau DesignSave this projectSaveCocooning Building / L’eau Designlast_img read more

Existing-Home Sales Jump 4.9% in May

It was the biggest month-over-month boost since August 2011, when sales picked up 5.5 percent, the group reported.Isolating just single-family transactions, sales numbers increased 5.7 percent to an adjusted rate of 4.30 million.”Home buyers are benefiting from slower price growth due to the much-needed, rising inventory levels seen since the beginning of the year,” said NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun. “Moreover, sales were helped by the improving job market and the temporary but slight decline in mortgage rates.”Still, compared to last year, overall sales remained down 5.0 percent, reflecting a higher-cost environment that has driven out some otherwise interested shoppers.In May, the median existing-home price for all housing types was $213,400, a 5.1 percent increase year-over-year. The median single-family home price was slightly higher at $213,600.Home price gains have slowed down over the last half-year, helped in part by increased supply. Last month, NAR reports total housing inventory available for sale was up 2.2 percent to 2.28 million existing homes, representing a 5.6-month supply at the current sales pace.Though an improvement over last year, NAR says current home inventories are still below where they should be for a balanced market, which should come to about a six-month supply. In a report earlier this month, the group said lack of construction is the main problem, with housing starts falling far short of employment gains in many areas across the country.Looking forward, the association hopes further inventory gains and moderation in price increases will spur more activity in the coming months.”The temporary pause in rising interest rates and more homes for sale is good news—especially for first-time home buyers—who likely have a better chance in upcoming months to make a competitive offer that’s in return accepted by the seller,” said NAR president Steve Brown. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, Newscenter_img Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: Inventory Levels Continue to Improve in Florida Next: Case-Shiller: Home Prices Fall Short of Market Expectations Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago June 24, 2014 971 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Existing Home Sales Home Sales Inventory NAR 2014-06-24 Tory Barringer Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Existing-Home Sales Jump 4.9% in May The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

Rowan states his case

first_imgOver the course of his career at the University of Wisconsin, running back Dywon Rowan has garnered the dubious distinction of being a very good practice player. That label pretty much goes hand-in-hand with his being little-used in games. Rowan took the first step toward changing that reputation Saturday, as he was the star of the show in the UW spring football game. “He was a guy who even a year ago at this time had begun to show some signs,” Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said. Before this spring, Rowan, a transfer walk-on from Madison Area Technical College, was probably best known for his seven kick returns last season, as he was the beneficiary of teams refusing to kick to All-American return-man Brandon Williams. Rowan also managed to pick up 34 yards on 13 carries last season and even found paydirt against Temple, busting through from two yards out. When the spring season began and the question of who would replace tailback Brian Calhoun in the fall became the hot topic, many names were discussed, including P.J. Hill, Jerry Butler, Jamil Walker and Dion Foster, along with incoming freshman Lance Smith. Nowhere to be found in the chatter, however, was Rowan. “I’ve just been waiting for a chance,” Rowan said. “I hope that today I proved that I should get a shot at starting.”That he certainly did. Rowan averaged more than 10 yards a touch on the day, picking up 50 yards on the ground on six carries and 46 yards receiving on three receptions.”It’s a confidence booster,” a beaming Rowan said of his performance. “I think there are some things I could’ve done better, but we’re not going to talk about them.”The spring game capped off an outstanding spring session for Rowan, who along with cornerback Shane Carter and wide receiver Paul Hubbard, is in the mix as the player who had the most impressive spring. Not only was Rowan able to show big play capability, but he also showed consistency, something he said he has focused on intently.”Coach always stresses being consistent,” Rowan said. “I just tried to come in every day and be that.”Rowan might have made himself the front-runner for the starting tailback position on Saturday. At the least, he ensured that he would no longer be left out of the conversation when the competition resumes in the fall.”I don’t see why people underestimate him,” said Rowan’s lead blocker Chris Pressley. “He’s one of the best overall backs that we have. His vision is the best, I think. He has power, he has size, he has pretty good speed. I don’t think he is going to continue to be underestimated for that long. He’s going to change that around.”At 5-foot-9 and 243 pounds, Rowan more resembles a wrecking ball than a running back. He showed a surprising evasive quality while also displaying the sheer power to leave potential tacklers in his wake. “He’s been real good for us,” Stocco said. “He’s kind of a power guy, but has definitely showed some versatility.”Rowan also showcased a killer stiff-arm — just ask cornerback Allen Langford, who is still probably coughing up rubber chips from Camp Randall’s artificial turf after getting caught up in Rowan’s self-proclaimed “danger zone” and receiving a ferocious stiff-arm. “Personally, I think he’s a great running back,” Pressley said. “He shows it all.”Showing a diverse skill set is something that Rowan has made a priority, believing that it could be the little things that help get him the position of starting running back.”Catching the ball, blocking, knowing your assignments … that all helps you separate yourself so that you can put yourself in position to get that starting spot,” Rowan said. While Rowan made his case Saturday, Bielema reiterated that the spot will remain wide open when fall practices resume, adding he is excited to see what the full talents of “Mr. Smith” will be when he arrives on campus. “I honestly believe in competition,” Bielema said. “We’ll see how it plays out.”last_img read more

Jonathan Mensah makes Evian return after nearly 5 months

first_imgThe Ghana centre-back played his first Ligue 1 match in almost five months as his side endured a tough outingGhana defender Jonathan Mensah played  for Evian Thonon Gaillard on Saturday, ending a first-team absence of almost five months.However, it was a disappointing afternoon for the Black Star as ETG were comfortably overcome by AS Monaco in Ligue 1.Evian looked defensively uncomfortable right from the off and conceded on 18 minutes when Anthony Martial, finding space down the left, tore through the backline and fired home.It was 2-0 before the break, as Dimitar Berbatov—on as an early substitute for Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco—reminded Europe of his sublime technique. The former Manchester United man waltzed through the Evian defence before rounding goalkeeper Benjamin Leroy and firing home against the unfortunate Kassim Abdallah.Almamy Toure made it three on the hour mark, before Modou Sougou—another substitute—gave Evian a late consolation goal. Jonathan started the game at left-back, with Pascal Dupraz preferring to retain his central defensive pairing of Dany Nounkeu and Cedric Cambon. He excelled in this unfamiliar position, making seven clearances, four interceptions and two tackles according to WhoScored.comThe Ghana international had previously assured fans that he was in no rush to return to the Evian first team following the Afcon and that he was happy just as long as the side are winning.Even ahead of the tournament he hadn’t been present, having last featured for the side on October 25 in Evian’s 2-0 home defeat to Nantes.Despite his extensive inactivity, Mensah showed little signs of match rustiness at the Cup of Nations, where he was an ever-present for Ghana. He helped the Black Stars to four clean sheets—against Algeria, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea and Ivory Coast—but was unable to ensure the Avram Grant’s side lifted the continental championship.Defeat leaves Evian only three points off the relegation zone, having played 28 games in the French top flight.last_img read more
