Positioned on the southern edge of Beijing’s Chaoyang Park ─ the largest remaining park in Beijing’s central business district area ─ the 220,000 sqm complex includes 10 buildings which unfold as a classic Shanshui painting on an urban scale. Having a similar position and function as Central Park in Manhattan, but unlike the modern box-like buildings that only create a separation between the park and the city, “Chaoyang Park Plaza” instead is an expansion of nature. It is an extension of the park into the city, naturalizing the CBD’s strong artificial skyline, borrowing scenery from a distant landscape ─ a classical approach to Chinese garden architecture, where nature and architecture blend into one another.Save this picture!© Hufton+Crow“In modern cities, architecture as an artificial creation is seen more as a symbol of capital, power or technological development; while nature exists independently. It is different from traditional Eastern cities where architecture and nature are designed as a whole, creating an atmosphere that serves to fulfill one’s spiritual pursuits,” said architect Ma Yansong. “We want to blur the boundary between nature and the artificial, and make it so that both are designed with the other in mind. Then, the argument in the modern logic of humans to protect or to destroy nature will no longer exist if we understand and see humans and nature as co-existing. Human behavior and emotion is part of nature, and nature is where that originates and ends.”Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowInspired by traditional Chinese landscape paintings, the design remodels the relationship of large-scale architecture within our urban centers. It introduces natural forms and spaces ─ “mountain, brook, creek, rocks, valley and forest” ─ into the city. The asymmetrical twin tower office buildings on the north side of the site, sit at the base of the park’s lake and are like two mountain peaks growing out of the water. The transparent and bright atrium acts like a “drawstring” that pulls the two towers together by a connecting glass rooftop structure.Save this picture!Concept – Painting by Wang MingxianSave this picture!© Hufton+CrowThe small-scale, low-rise commercial buildings appear as mountain rocks that have endured long-term erosion. They seem to be randomly placed, but their strategic relationship to one another forms a secluded, but open urban garden, offering a place where people can meet within nature in the middle of the city.Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowThe two multi-story Armani apartments to the southwest continue this concept of “open air living” with their staggered balconies, offering each residential unit more opportunities to be exposed to natural sunlight, and ultimately feel a particular closeness to nature.Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowThe overall environment is shaped by smooth, curved surfaces of black and white, creating a quiet and mysterious atmosphere. It is one that evokes the emotion and aesthetic resonance of a traditional Chinese ink painting, creating a tranquil escape from the surrounding, bustling urban environment. The landscape that weaves itself in between the buildings incorporates pine trees, bamboo, rocks and ponds ─ all traditional Eastern landscape elements that imply a deeper connection between the architecture and classical space. Japanese graphic artist Kenya Hara led the design of the “simple” and “refined” signage system for the project.Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowSave this picture!© Hufton+CrowThe project has been awarded the LEED Gold Certification by the US Green Building Council, as the ideal of “nature” is not only embodied in the design concept, but in the innovation and integration of green technology as well. The vertical fins seen on the exterior glass façade emphasize the smoothness and verticality of the towers. They also function as the energy efficient ventilation and filtration system, drawing fresh air indoors. At the base of the towers, there is a pond, that while making them appear as if they are going into infinity, works as an air cooling system in the summer, decreasing the overall temperature of the interior.Save this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!ModelSave this picture!Long Section“Chaoyang Park Plaza” completely transforms the model of building found in our cities’ central business districts. But even though it is located in the center of Beijing’s CBD, the intention is for it to have a dialogue with the traditional and classical city of Beijing – reflecting the interdependence between man and nature, both in urban planning, and the large-scale presentation of the Shanshui garden. In the painting of Wang Mingxian, an architectural historian, he juxtaposed “Chaoyang Park Plaza” into a classical landscape painting. The architecture and the natural scenery seemed harmonious together, unlike how some might think the buildings do not fit into their urban context. Commenting on this contrast, Ma Yansong said: “I don’t think that’s our problem. The real question is when did the original cultural context of this city disappear? We have the opportunity to try and create a different kind of city, that on a spiritual and cultural level, can be compared to the classical cities of Eastern philosophy and wisdom.”Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Beach House / Laura Ortín ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsWeekend House PS / hantabal architektiSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Beijing, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The 2014 Tony Award Nominations by the Numbers

first_img Two Canadian actors have been nominated for 2014 Tony Awards: Les Miserables star Ramin Karimloo (who was born in Iran but raised in Canada) and Bullets Over Broadway’s Nick Cordero. Mark Rylance got two acting nominations this season, for repertory productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III. He joins previous double acting nominees Amanda Plummer, Dana Ivey, Kate Burton and Jan Maxwell in the history books. But wait, there’s more! McDonald is also the fifth person in history to have been nominated in all four performance categories—she’s in good company with Raul Esparza, Boyd Gaines, Jan Maxwell and Angela Lansbury. Hallelujah, Lady Day star Audra McDonald has now officially been nominated for eight Tony Awards! (Julie Harris is still the record holder for the most nominations, with 10.) Three Tony-nominated revivals are on the Great White Way for the first time: Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Cripple of Inishmaan and Violet. The Velocity of Autumn star Estelle Parsons, 86, is the oldest acting nominee of the season. Woohoo! A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder scored 10 nominations, the most of any show this year. Wait, three stars from Twelfth Night are nominated in the Best Featured Actor in a Play category?! This has never happened before! (Only for musicals Big River, The Producers and Kiss Me Kate.) Congratulations to all of the 2014 Tony nominees! Six Tony-nominated men wore dresses during their performances: Neil Patrick Harris, Reed Birney, Samuel Barnett, Paul Chahidi, Mark Rylance and Jefferson Mays. Let’s be honest—theater people suck at math, so Tony nomination day is the only time you’ll ever catch us crunching numbers. Armed with a giant stack of statistics books and a calculator, we got to work figuring out which nominees will make history, which Tony-nominated men got glam, which Tony-winning actors have a chance to win big again this year and more. Check out Broadway.com’s Tony Award nominations by the numbers! Nine Tony-winning actors have a chance to win again this year: Mark Rylance, Tyne Daly, Cherry Jones, Audra McDonald, Adriane Lenox, Jefferson Mays, Sutton Foster, Idina Menzel and Anika Noni Rose. There are 21 first-time acting nominees, including celebs Bryan Cranston, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris O’Dowd and Sophie Okonedo. Five British actors were nominated: Samuel Barnett, Mark Rylance, Paul Chahidi, Stephen Fry and Sophie Okonedo. Two Irish actors also received nods: Of Mice and Men star Chris O’Dowd and The Cripple of Inishmaan’s Sarah Greene. The Glass Menagerie has been nominated for seven Tony Awards—believe it or not, it’s the first time the acclaimed play by Tennessee Williams has ever received any nods! Two actors who were nominated in 2013 are returning to the race again: Cabaret star Danny Burstein and Act One headliner Tony Shalhoub. View Commentslast_img read more

First test of young season for Nelson Figure Skaters

first_imgGower and fellow coach Yoshie Measures have spent the last six months rethinking all aspects of the clubs programming.This summer they premiered a re-tooled summer camp designed to establish the NFSC as a regional centre of excellence in the off season.The coaches invited fitness specialists to develop a broad-based strategy to help skaters improve strength, flexibility and overall fitness.“We want to develop the complete athlete,” says Coach Measures. “By adding flex, yoga and dance classes we complimented a rigorous on ice program with what the other instructors were doing.”The formula proved successful with the largest summer enrolment the club has seen in years.One key area the club wanted to rethink was the Junior Academy Program.Designed as a transition from general skating to figure skating, the program has always had to serve skaters in transition and with a broad range of abilities.The coaches decided to utilize the higher requirements of the New Canskate and keep skaters in that program longer.Skaters moving into Junior Academy will now possess a firm base to learn the rigors of figure skating. For Measures, a jump specialist, its all about developing solid skill sets at every level.“We are teaching skating that focuses on proper crosscut technique, and most importantly improved fitness through on-ice cardio sessions. We’ve notice difference since the summer, skaters are pushing harder, going faster and have more stamina.”All those benefits will be appreciated as skaters begin to prepare for the upcoming competition season.Next up on the competitive trail is a meet in Rossland before the Kootenay Regional Championships in January, 2014.The Super Series Final in Kelowna March is a treat for skaters to participate in. Performances be live streamed allowing friends and supporters to watch the action wherever they are.For more information about the Nelson Figure Skating Club, please visit nelsonfigureskatingclub.ca A handful of Nelson skaters take the show on the road to compete in the East Kootenay Invitational competition beginning Friday in Kimberley.Nelson Figure Skating Club members  Charley DeFouw, Christina Champlin, Breanna Tomlin and Morgan Sabo will represent Nelson at the East Kootenay Invitational.Beginning will Test Events on Friday, the four Starskaters will compete in a total of 13 events over the weekend across a variety of categories from Elements and Dance tests to Freeskate and Interpretive programs.With Olympic actions just around the corner the competition is expected to draw more than 130 competitors from around the region.The Nelson Figure Skating Club recently launched some new programs for first time skaters to seasoned competitors.Canskate, the club’s flagship learn to skate instruction has been redesigned by Skate Canada.  The New Canskate aims to help kids progress faster through constant movement.“In a 45 minute session there are lots of ways we ensure kids are always moving,” explains Coach Sarah Gower.“With the use of a fast track, a circuit, props and games children are always using their stroking to acquire sound fundamentals faster. They achieve speed and better fitness sooner.”Gower emphasizes that Canskate is a sound base for all ice sports and has added drills designed specially for kids looking to play hockey.“We offered a condensed Canskate program in the summer and I was amazed with the progress in only five days.”last_img read more

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now If you live to be 90 years old, you will have lived 32,850 days. That’s 4,680 weeks. That sounds like a lot of days. Even when you look at a lifetime in weeks it seems like a lot of time. But it isn’t very much time at all. It only feels like a lot of time when you are very young.The 680 weeks end when you are 13 years old. At 32 years old, you are down to 3,000 weeks. At 50 years old, you have a mere 2,080 weeks left before your 90th birthday.You have a short time to do all of the things that are going to make up a life of your own design, a life that fulfills you, and a life that you can proud of having lived. No one has gun pointed at your head motivating you to do something. But there is a clock pointed at your head. That clock is every bit as threatening, and the threat is never lifted.Your time here is short. Get busy.last_img read more

Write Your Own Damn Content

Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now I share a lot of content from people I know, trust, and respect. In fact, I have about 45 people whose content I regularly share on Twitter and a few other social sites. Their content is valuable, and it is useful. But I never share their content on my blog. My blog is where I share my insights, and publishing other people’s content on my site would be an abdication of my responsibility.If you have a blog, guest posts don’t create as much value as publishing your content. You might think it’s easier to share someone else’s content to gain attention and drive traffic to your site. You might think that guest posts bring their audience to your site, and once they are, they will become your audience. The content may be great, and the person whose content you’re sharing may have a massive audience. But the insight being shared isn’t yours, and you aren’t getting the credit for it.There are a few sites that scrape other people’s content (mine included), as a way to try to gain attention. They don’t ask for permission. Instead, they just publish what someone else wrote verbatim. Occasionally they’ll attribute the work to the person who wrote it and include a link to the original work. But why bother with the superfluous link to the original work when you’ve scraped the entire post? Even if the content makes it seem that you are publishing, you aren’t.You might believe that other people’s content is a shortcut, but like most shortcuts, it doesn’t produce the intended result. You are supposed to be making your contribution, sharing your ideas, and nurturing your relationships.Your point of view matters. Your opinions are important. Giving people some idea as to how you think and what you might be like to work with is how you gain their trust and create opportunities.
