Situated at the corner of 4th Avenue and 1st Street in the coveted Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, 251 1st by ODA New York is the firm’s latest manifestation of its steadfast commitment to improving quality of life in urban areas. In this case—taking a page from its well-documented playbook—ODA’s inflected the building’s upper massing with a cascade of setbacks and terraces, yielding substantial outdoor space, as well as multiple exposures for units.Save this picture!© Miguel de Guzman / Imagen SubliminalIn addition to light and outdoor area, playing with the massing in this way also provides a sensitive contextual nod: A more formal, closed exterior on bustling 4th Avenue—suitable for the major commercial artery—gives way to the porous push and pull of the terracing along 1st Street, design language meant to mimic the small scale of area brownstones and to engage with 1st’s intimate, more residential quality.In this interaction between disparate exterior elements, 251 1st also references an abstract undercurrent—the generational and cultural shift, as Brooklyn, a once sleepy, largely residential outer borough, continues its transformation into one of NYC’s great cultural epicenters. In other words, both legs of Brooklyn’s changing identity receive expression on the exterior of 251 1st.Save this picture!Render © Heroes VisualsSave this picture!© Miguel de Guzman / Imagen SubliminalInside, ODA’s design is conceived as a kind of urban oasis. While the clean lines and unabashed geometry of the contemporary canon are prominent on the exterior, the lobby—open planned, full-floored and attended 24 hours (via doorman and virtual concierge)—has a softer, distinctly natural, almost zen-like aura, with a strong emphasis on materials: a rich medley of woods, concrete, and metals. In the lobby’s lounge areas, living green wall receive ample light through transparent front and rear glass.Save this picture!Render © Heroes VisualsUnits, in contrast, feature muted palettes—and are, per usual, elegantly appointed. Wide plank white oaks floors lay beneath soaring ceilings, circumscribed by floor-to- ceiling glass windows and doors. Powder rooms, secondary baths, and master baths are outfitted with Italian marble, imported porcelain, and white honed marble, respectively. And eleven light-filled penthouses boast panoramic vistas reaching from the Manhattan skyline to the Verrezano-Narrows Bridge.Save this picture!© Miguel de Guzman / Imagen SubliminalSave this picture!© Miguel de Guzman / Imagen SubliminalAnd, as ODA residents have come to expect, the building features a generous slew of amenities, from the familiar—two sun-soaked courtyards, a landscaped terrace—to the luxuriantly unexpected: an entry floor library, stroller valet, fitness/yoga room, and even a pet grooming station, among others.Save this picture!© Miguel de Guzman / Imagen SubliminalProject gallerySee allShow lessGüths House / ArqBr Arquitetura e UrbanismoSelected ProjectsRevised Design for Washington DC WWI Memorial UnveiledArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:251 1st St, Brooklyn, NY 11215, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Kurdish regional government criticised for banning reporters from visiting PKK bases

first_img December 28, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today urged the Kurdish regional government in northern Iraq to lift a ban on journalists visiting the bases of the Turkish armed separatist group, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). It also called for the release of a correspondent of the satellite TV station Kolsat who was arrested yesterday in Mosul, 80 km west of Erbil, the regional capital.“Kurdistan is one of few regions in Iraq where local and foreign journalists can move about freely without constant risk to their lives,” the press freedom organisation said. “This ban is a serious violation of their ability to report on the clashes in Iraq between the PKK’s fighters and the Turkish army. The regional government in Erbil and the national government in Baghdad must stop blaming journalists for crises.”The Kurdish regional government yesterday banned journalists from going to meet PKK combatants who have found refuge in the Qandil mountains on the border between Iraq and Turkey. Kurdistan Regional Government spokesman Jamal Abdullah said “media reports have led to an acceleration of the crisis with Turkey.” The Iraqi Journalistic Freedoms Observatory said several journalists were arrested near the Turkish border as a result of the regional government’s decision.In a separate development, Fayçal Ghazala, the correspondent of the satellite TV station Kolsat, was arrested yesterday at his home near Mosul by Kurdish security forces and could face charges of “terrorist activity.” He is reportedly being held in the Dohuk police station.The Iraqi news agency Aswat Al-Iraq meanwhile reported that the editor of the weekly Al-Fayçal, Mohammed Mazhar Al-Shaheen Al-Shumari, was freed on 17 November. He was arrested by the US military in October in Tikrit (180 km north of Baghdad) for reasons that are still unknown.

Internacional Is Libertadores Cup Champion

first_img Internacional of Brazil was crowned Wednesday as the champion of soccer’s Liberators of America Cup with a 3-2 victory at home over Chivas of Guadalajara, Mexico, in the second match of a home-and-away series, at which a brief fight broke out as the local fans were celebrating the title. Internacional, coached by Celso Roth, won with goals scored by the forwards Rafael Sobis, Leandro Damiao, and Giuliano at 61, 76, and 89 minutes of play, respectively. Chivas scored first with a goal by midfielder Marco Fabián de la Mora at 42 minutes and then lessened Internacional’s lead with a goal by forward Omar Bravo at 92 minutes of play. The duel was fought in front of around sixty thousand spectators in Beira-Rio Stadium in the city of Porto Alegre and was refereed by Colombian Oscar Ruiz. The Brazilian team, which obtained its second tournament title, having been crowned as champion in 2006, had won the first match of the series 2-1 as the visiting team, so that it won the Cup with an aggregate score of 5-3. In the concluding ceremony, world soccer star Pelé handed the trophy to the Porto Alegre team. By making it to the final round, Inter qualified for the FIFA Club World Cup, which will be held in December in the United Arab Emirates, representing the South American Soccer Confederation (Conmebol). Chivas was not eligible to qualify for this cup, since it is an invited guest in the South American tournament. Guadalajara was frustrated in the attempt to win its country’s first Liberators Cup title, following the 2001 defeat of Cruz Azul on the only other occasion a Mexican team has reached the final round.
