Terrarium House was created by bringing together layers of memories from the owners’ childhoods and their travels through adult life. It began as an exercise in pragmatics, managing problematic site conditions and a 100-year-old cottage crumbling into a backyard jungle.Save this picture!© Toby ScottSave this picture!Plans afterSave this picture!© Toby ScottSitting halfway up the ridge of the inner-city Brisbane, the cottage’s backyard is oriented perfectly towards the north. Retained on the front boundary, the land falls around 2.5m from footpath to yard. The change in level means that the former one-bedroom cottage could grow by inhabiting the open under-croft below. The streetscape, and the cottage’s relationship to its twin neighbour, would remain intact without raising the house.Save this picture!© Toby ScottEntering from footpath into a private world through a secure vine-covered screen, the former front verandah now contains protected external stairs. A lush planted void draws you down the stairs to the living area below.Save this picture!© Toby ScottThe lower level with laundry, bathroom, meals and lounge has been designed and detailed to conjure memories of the former shadowy under-croft. Black stained ceilings create compression as you enter from garden in the bottom of the front void. Concrete floors, rendered walls and perimeter ledge make you feel grounded, sitting ever so slightly below the garden level in a breezy cool under-croft, not sure if you are inside or out. Save this picture!© Toby ScottSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Toby ScottThe lower level can be enclosed by timber framed sliding doors to the north and south, both of which, when open, become invisible, sliding behind external walls. A solid wall to the west protects the space from afternoon sun. Fine textured glass to the east captures winter morning sunlight, while the lush planting casts shadows and flickers dappled light into the living space.  This is a space sitting in shadow allowing retreat from the intense Queensland light.Save this picture!© Toby ScottAbove are the more private rooms of the house. Access is back up the protected external stairs and inside the original cottage door. The front two rooms open to a common hallway space, making a larger room for children to play and grow up together. For privacy, large floor-to-ceiling sliding panels can close separating, containing and creating a retreat space in these bedrooms.Save this picture!© Toby ScottOff the hallway is a shared bathroom with semi-transparent polycarbonate roof, letting in light and the sound of rain. The third bedroom sit adjacent to a large void in the rear north east corner of the house. The connection of the two levels enables chatter and activity. Passive surveillance and communication extends to the street from most parts of the house via glimpses through the vine-covered screen to walkers by.Save this picture!© Toby ScottFrom season to season the house can be adapted as required. In winter a large panel slides to enclose the rear void. In summer deep eaves protect the north from the sun. The large panel is left open allowing breezes to flow through the house and out though the screen to the street.Save this picture!© Toby ScottProject gallerySee allShow lessCircular Amphitheatre / NONETOTEN DESIGN LABSelected ProjectsI.

Power shift

first_imgRepublicans scored a significant victory on Election Night, winning control of the Senate and extending their majority in the House. The results could be seen as a referendum on GOP policies, but also as a rebuke to President Obama. David King, a senior lecturer in public policy, provided his perspective on the outcome in a Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) interview. HKS: What message did the voters send Tuesday night? Which issues resonated the loudest?KING: I was surprised by the size of the Republican wave on Tuesday; if we think of Congress as a ship, the thing has been rocking wildly side-to-side.President Obama had strong majorities in Congress after the 2008 election. Then voters sent Democrats home in 2010 as the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party swept into Congress. In 2012 the voters repudiated Republicans across the board and returned President Obama to the White House. And now this — voters must have seasickness.I do not think there were substantive issues that resonated loudly. Yes, there was fear in the air — an anxiousness about ISIS and Ebola and the economy — but the bell that rang loudest had an anti-Obama clapper.Maybe we should stop calling these “midterm” elections and talk about short-term elections, because the American voter does not seem to have a long-term sense of where the country should be going or how we should get there.HKS: What do the Republicans hope to accomplish with control of both the House and Senate for the first time since 2006?KING: It will be difficult for either party to enact major changes, because Democrats in the Senate are perfectly capable of stopping bills from passing. Procedurally, it is unlikely that President Obama will be signing many Republican “stand-alone” bills, and he’ll be ready to use his veto pen. So the most likely path forward for Republicans will be to tack “policy” bills onto a handful of must-pass spending bills. This is possible because non-germane pieces of legislation are allowed to be amended onto spending bills in the Senate — but not in the House. If Alabama’s Richard Shelby becomes the next chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee — and that’s likely — then he will be in an especially strong position to control the fate of legislation.There will be some easy wins. President Obama likes the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade agreement. Senate Democrats got in the way last year, and it should be much easier with Republicans in charge of the Senate.HKS: How can and should the president work with Congress in his final two years in office? Is there any common ground on which to compromise on major policy issues?KING: President Obama has shown little capacity to compromise. He did not seem to like the U.S. Congress even when he was a member of it, and he has kept his own party leadership at arm’s length for six years. That is unlikely to change. Instead, President Obama will issue executive orders with abandon and attach signing statements to bills that he does sign. He will almost certainly work to support and defend his signature accomplishment — health care reform — while giving the program more time to work. The economy is getting stronger. Health care reform — as long as it’s not called “Obamacare” — has been much more popular than most people expected, and at this stage the president may want to take care of his legacy.HKS: How do yesterday’s results affect the ground rules for the 2016 election?KING: This election was a harbinger of big money — for both parties — flowing into campaigns. More than $4 billion was spent on the Congressional elections alone, much of it from non-candidate groups, and that will look like chump change two years from now. That would not be a bad thing if the money were spent on strategies to increase turnout across the board, but negative advertising diminishes turnout among moderate voters, alienates young voters, and rallies the core supporters of the parties.HKS: Any other thoughts to offer on the election?KING: We need to remember that political parties and candidates are not in the business of promoting or protecting democracy. They use democratic rules and institutions to get power, certainly, but candidates live in fear of mobilizing the “wrong” voters. Frankly, democracy is too important to be left up to the parties and the candidates. We need to encourage better people to run at all levels of government. We need to do all that we can to balance the power of big money with the power of big ideas.last_img read more

Men’s water polo preps for showdown against UCLA

first_imgSenior driver Blake Edwards and the No. 2 men’s water polo team still have their sights set on a national championship after a loss to Cal last weekend. Photo by Tucker Judkins | Daily TrojanAfter dropping one spot in the rankings after a loss at Cal, the No. 2 men’s water polo team looks to rebound in its regular season finale against No. 4 UCLA on Saturday. Last weekend, the team went 1-1, falling to the now top-ranked Bears and defeating No. 5 Pacific. With a national championship on their mind, the Trojans (22-2) look to avenge an early-season loss to the Bruins (17-3) when they travel to Westwood.When the Trojans last faced UCLA in the championship game of the Mountain Pacific Invitational on Sept. 24, they lost 13-11, going back and forth with UCLA for most of the third quarter. “I think there were just all these little things that we messed up on and that we have gotten better at recently,” senior utility James Walters said. “Throughout the season, we’ve become a totally different team, so I’m excited to see where that will take us this weekend.”At practices, the team has been focusing on refining its game after the disappointing loss to Cal (18-1).“We’re going to focus a lot of our attention on finishing out high-percentage opportunities,” senior driver Blake Edwards said. “They’re critical to the overall outcome of the game.”The Trojans last defeated the Bruins in Westwood in 2014. Though UCLA boasts a roster that includes seven seniors and eight All-Americans, Edwards said USC is ready to handle the Bruins and their home crowd.“It’s a big opportunity,” Edwards said. “We love any game against UCLA. This team’s been together for three years now, so we’re well used to these pressured situations.”As the match against UCLA marks the end of the regular season, the Trojans have the upcoming MPSF Tournament and the NCAA Championships in mind. “We just want to win a national championship — that’s the one goal for everyone this season,” Walters said. “That’s the entire team. That’s all we’re thinking about. So winning the game this weekend is huge for us: We need a big win going into the MPSF Tournament.”last_img read more
