Giant House in Oiso is a house for a young couple allocated in a residential area near the sea in Oiso. The site is quite large for living by two persons, and their wish was very simple, to have one big space besides a small master bedroom. We explore in this project “the bigness” beyond an ordinary big room by carefully reading the context of the site, laying out and shaping the volume of the house, creating the intermediate space as extension of both public and private, and selecting materials to enforce all of those intentions.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Takumi OtaAvoiding the typical layout of a house in long plot facing the northern road in Japan, which is squarish full wide volume in the center dividing carport and garden on south, we placed a slender full depth volume in the site. By stretching the circulation in full depth of the site we intended to let people walk through the site automatically and perceive physically the size of it. Also as the site is at the end of T-junction, we shifted the volume to east and kept the west half as void space which is extended line of the road in order not to retain the air and wind flow, and to let the road extend into the site allowing the house to make more contact to the public.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSimultaneously we put the biggest roof possible by law over the site including the void space on west, so that the void space is not only the extension of public space but also the extension of interior private space. The overlap of the translucent roof and the garden creates the interactive space which can accommodate diverse usage such as dining, reading, hammocking, bathing, playing ball, etc.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaSave this picture!Section and ElevationSave this picture!© Takumi OtaWhen you enter inside and look right from a bit closed and dim entrance, you find at the end of the corridor a bright main living space with high ceiling that is over 5m at the highest point. At the opposite side, when you go up to the stairs, there is the master bedroom at the intermediate level, then the study/guest room where the dynamic lattice wood framework of the roof is just in front of your view. When you look over the living room from the second floor which has pitched low ceiling like a loft, you feel the bigness and generosity of the air volume of the main space even more.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe exterior roof consists of H-shaped steel columns, laminated pine lumber beams, and polycarbonate roofing. By minimizing the member of pillars, we made blur the boundary of the garden between with and without the roof. In contrast, we chose lumber to make the beam depth big to keep a good balance between open-air and intimate atmosphere beneath. For interior, we selected light gray finishes in order that people could perceive its abstract geometry, natural light gradually varying through time, and the scenery coming in from outside most beautifully.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaProject gallerySee allShow lessLEEDO SAU Coffee / ATMOROUNDSelected ProjectsLochten Sustainable Micro Neighbourhood / Urban PlatformSelected Projects Share Area:  140 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Manufacturers: AutoDesk, DAIPLA, DAIPLA Corporation, JFE, Rhinoceros Photographs:  Takumi Ota Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeFumiko Takahama ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYokohamaOn InstagramOn FacebookJapanPublished on June 09, 2020Cite: “Giant House in Oiso / Fumiko Takahama Architects” 09 Jun 2020.

Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields

first_img By Gary Truitt – Aug 19, 2015 Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields SHARE Previous articleGarrett Lowes is Indiana Showmanship Grand ChampionNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Day 3 of the Pro Farmer Crop Tour goes from Bloomington, Illinois to Iowa City, Iowa on Wednesday. You can ride right along with the scouts all this week by following the tour online at You can also keep track of the progress on twitter with #pftour15 (hashtag p f tour 15). Home Indiana Agriculture News Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fields The final numbers for Indiana came in at 142.94 bushels to the acre for corn and 1093.08 pods of soybeans in a 3 foot by 3 foot square.   Once the tour crossed the border into Illinois, the variability leveled out.  Jarrod Hudson, a DuPont Pioneer Field Agronomist for the central part of The Land of Lincoln, said crops in his area have seen its fair share of challenges, “We had a lot of rain early but, since about the first of July, the rain has shut off. Our corn looks good, but the big question is how big are those holes in the field.”center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The eastern leg of the Pro Farmer Crop Tour moved across Central Indiana on Tuesday. Ty Higgins, traveling with the tour, reports extreme crop variability continued across most of Indiana — not only wide ranges in yield potential, but even in crop development. Scouts reported yield estimates as low as 46.4 bpa in Allen County, 84 bpa in Wells County, and 96 bpa in Adams County. Many saw evidence of lack of maturity, with one scout finding corn that wasn’t even waist high. This field in Indiana came it at an estimated 120.4 bpa.© Ben PotterStops in Central Indiana showed some crop improvement. One field in Grant County earned an estimate of 200 bpa, and a stop in Boone County showed some good soybeans. Higgins reported, “The soybeans were recently shot with an herbicide and also recently got a shot of rain. Disease and pest pressures continue to be low; and this first was not only taller, but had a good number of pods on the plants. Our corn yield calculation is 184 and our pod count in a 3 x 3 square is 1073.”  But, he told HAT that the next stop in the same county produced much different results, “Although this corn looked good from the road, the middle part we sampled was awful to say the least. Almost 50% of the field was waist high due to excess rains, so our yield guess of 14 is not a stretch. On the other side of the road were some of the nicest soybeans I have seen this week. The combination of tall plants and pods from top to bottom gave this field a 1458 pod count in a 3 x 3 foot square.”In Montgomery County, the tour ran into a little rust and frog eye on the soybeans. “Our pod count was 823. The corn was planted in 20 inch rows and the health of the field was very good. A nice change from our previous stop. 178 bushels per acre is our estimate here,” said  Higgins. In Clinton County, the tour found another short crop, “Population in this field was decent and will help this field make 165 bushels this fall. The bean field was bad and getting worse. Some plants were beginning to shut down and the disease pressure was strong. The 2 pods below were from the same row. The pod count here was 755.”  The crew estimated corn yields in Tippecanoe County at 165 bpa and Warren County at 175 bpa. Reports from the Western arm of the tour were at the other end of the spectrum. The crops in Eastern Nebraska looked good but, as scout Matt Bennett reports, some disease pressure has been noticed, “Disease pressure on our last stop: Green Leaf Syndrome, Northern Corn Leaf Blight, anthracnose, and lodging. Going to need to pick this early.” Paul Neiffer, The Farm CPA, who is also scouting on the western leg, says yield estimates have been holding slightly above the three-year average for the tour, but he has yet to find any 200 bpa corn on his route. The Nebraska corn yield average was put at 165 bpa. Crop Tour Finds Extremes in Indiana Fieldslast_img read more

Ohio State Partnership with Purdue Important to New Dean

first_img SHARE Ohio State Partnership with Purdue Important to New DeanThe new dean of the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) at The Ohio State University is bringing a wealth of experience to the position. Dr. Cathann Kress says, from her time at the Department of Defense, to time spent as an extension educator in Iowa will be what she draws on as she takes the reins at Ohio State. And, she says, while there are plenty of challenges, there are some things that will continue, including the partnership with Purdue University.“I know the people at Purdue very well, the Extension Director Jason Henderson, Renee McKee who is with their 4-H program, know them all well and have great respect for their work. And the more collaborations and partnerships we have across the land grant university system and extension I think the greater benefit for the people who live in our state,” Kress said.Dr. Kress will officially begin as Dean on May 1.

HR consultant

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. HR consultantOn 21 May 2002 in Personnel Today A ‘leap into the dark’ mentality may sound like a job requirement for aparatrooper, but the ability and courage to take personal risks in uncertaincircumstances is equally as applicable to would-be HR consultants. Whether you’re setting up on your own or joining a large consultancy youwill be entering a hard-headed business world where bonuses and targets have amajor importance and the flow of work is largely dependent on one person alone:you. And while some HR departments may view consultancy as a cushy number, thereality couldn’t be further from the truth. Along with securing work,consultants have to establish themselves in a fiercely competitive market. Thismeans not only keeping up to speed with the latest HR trends, but to undertakeextra training where necessary as well as exploiting contacts to secure as muchwork as possible. But more than anything, says Richard Chiumento, head of theChiumento Consulting Group, your feet need to be planted firmly on the ground.”If I had to give one bit of advice to new consultants it would be: ‘Don’tunderestimate the difficulty of becoming a successful consultant; the vastmajority fail.’” For some consultants these business skills may take time to perfect.However, time is not a commodity consultants have in abundance. A successfulconsultant is usually one who can combine the ability to produce good work withthe economic imperative of securing further employment. And for those who arenew to consultancy, these contacts can often be in short supply and quicklyexhausted. Julie Holden, owner of Spring Consultancy, describes consultancy as “ajuggling act between delivering a service and wondering where your next clientis”. As well as being able to think on your feet, you have to be a good marketeer-both to sell your skills and deliver on your promise and that you will do itbetter than any rival consultancy. This will involve researching the companyyou are working for – studying financial reports, and analysing the companyculture to identify where help is most needed and how best to operate withinthe company structure. As Ian Florence, director of ASE Consulting, points out:”You need to understand the company you’re working for. Consulting is allabout understanding an organisation’s needs, defining a solution for them thatworks and demonstrating the benefits of that solution.” The 2001 Review by the Management Consultants Association indicates that 96per cent of clients prefer to have some form of relationship. Those that haveexperienced first hand your ability to produce good work on deadline are farmore likely to refer you to their colleagues and associates. Even when these clients move on, they are likely to retain your servicesshould the need arise some time in the future. John Baker, head of practice atrecruitment consultancy Macmillan Davies Hodes, says: “It’s a relationshipbusiness. Once you have clients who know and trust you they will come back,whoever they are working for.” It is because of this fluctuating nature that an HR consultant’s averageearnings are difficult to calculate. Starting out a consultant could charge aslittle as £150 a day. At the top end of the scale consultants can expect toearn a minimum of £100,000 a year. And for some the rewards are far, far higher– to hire the consulting services of one leading management guru is in theregion of £100,000 a day. Quite simply, an HR consultant could earn as much astheir reputation, experience and work ethic permits. But consultancy is not all working at the leading-edge of HR. There is amore mundane side to the job – knowing how to run a business as well as keepingup with self-employment regulations. There can also be financial pitfalls. Along with having to shoulder theexpense of paying for office equipment and technology (tax deductible ofcourse), you could have to wait several months for fees which may presentdifficulties with cash flow. Above all, you have to be determined, and have an unwavering belief in yourabilities. As Sue Wotruba, a senior consultant at Penna Change Consulting, points out:”A consultant has to be completely self-sufficient as they may have tomake lots of decisions at short notice, sometimes in the middle of nowhere, andproduce work of a very high standard.” Case study Richard Chiumento, director of Chiumento Consulting GroupRichard Chiumento founded the Chiumento Consulting Group 10 years ago. Ithas since become one of the UK’s leading HR consultancies with 100 HRconsultants and 300 HR interim managers on its books.Chiumento began in HR in the early 1970s, moving into consultancy nearly 20years ago. Now dividing his time between Chiumento’s offices in Oxford andLondon he has been involved in major projects within financial services,manufacturing and the electronics sector. The consultancy has recently securedone of the largest HR outplacement and restructuring assignments ever – a dealthat will take six years to complete.Specialising in change management and management restructuring, Chiumentobelieves that successful consultancy stems from advising HR to develop and growtheir businesses in a commercially sensitive way. His guiding ethos is to keepthings simple and avoid overcomplication.He also stresses the need to develop an understanding with clients.”Successful consultancy is all about building relationships,” hesays, and developing trust is a key element of this. With new clients Chiumentoadvises that you both promise and deliver on something that’s relatively easyto measure. “A lot of HR people are nervous of taking risks when an HRconsultant is new,” he says. “You have to take something small thatcan be tested and prove how effective you are.” By concentrating on thesesmall building blocks Chiumento believes he has developed relationships basedon mutual trust that encourage clients to use his services wherever they happento be working.Along with building trust, Richard Chiumento also sets out to present asprofessional an image as possible, focusing on punctuality, smart appearanceand frequent communication with clients. Through this he believes he hasdeveloped a client-centred brand image that makes it clear what the consultancystands for and what it can deliver.”To be a successful consultant you have to manage your time well, keepyour finger on the pulse of the industry, help others to manage themselves andkeep your promises. But you also have to develop a valuable and client-centredbrand that makes it clear to everyone what you stand for and exactly what youcan deliver,” he says.last_img read more

Pop-up experts join Use Your Loaf

first_imgBritish Baker is pleased to announce the support of two new experts to its high street awareness campaign, Use Your Loaf.Emma Jones is the director of campaign group StartUp Britain, which runs the PopUp Britain initiative to help provide retailers with space on the UK’s high streets to trial new businesses.She told British Baker: “Since we opened our first pop-up shop in Richmond last July, we have seen the benefits to small businesses in that our tenants come into the shop for a fortnight and, in that time, they make sales, meet customers face-to-face, test new markets, and perfect their price point. This is all at a low cost and low risk.“If you are starting a bakery business, it’s an ideal step to take before committing to a full-time shop. Pop-up shops are also delivering benefits to landlords and the high street as customers are drawn to the entertainment, activities, and interesting products they find within a PopUp environment.”In addition, Dan Thompson, founder of the Empty Shops Network and author of Pop Up Business for Dummies, has said he is on board with the Use Your Loaf campaign, which aims to equip bakery businesses with advice and tips to helping improve their local high streets and town centres.He told British Baker that bakery businesses lend themselves to the pop-up concept: “Obviously you would need specialist equipment, but I can see a pop-up site running in addition to an established bakery that may be hidden away to give it more exposure and raise its profile.”He added that the government needed to do more to ensure the backing from UK councils remained the same across the board.Join Use Your LoafWe want you to play your part and actively help improve the current state of the UK’s high streets, but at British Baker we are here to give a helping hand, such as advice that we can ask an expert like Emma Jones and Dan Thompson, who can advise the best ways to set up a pop-up outlet.In addition, we want to eliminate any problems you are currently facing in your town centres – be it problems with your customers parking near to your shops, or inconvenient roadworks affecting the running of your business. The team at Use Your Loaf will aim to resolve these problems on your behalf.Why not download one of our Use Your Loaf posters and place it in your shop window to make customers aware of your part in reviving your local high street.
