DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On this day in history: March 3rd, 1845From WikipediaOn March 3, 1845, Florida became the 27th state of the United States of America. Its first governor was William Dunn Moseley.Almost half the state’s population were enslaved African Americans working on large cotton and sugar plantations, between the Apalachicola and Suwannee rivers in the north-central part of the state. Like the people who owned them, many slaves had come from the coastal areas of Georgia and the Carolinas. They were part of the Gullah-Gee Chee culture of the Lowcountry. Others were enslaved African Americans from the Upper South who had been sold to traders taking slaves to the Deep South.In the 1850s, with the potential transfer of ownership of federal land to the state, including Seminole land, the federal government decided to convince the remaining Seminoles to emigrate. The Army reactivated Fort Harvie and renamed it to Fort Myers. Increased Army patrols led to hostilities, and eventually a Seminole attack on Fort Myers which killed two United States soldiers. The Third Seminole War lasted from 1855 to 1858 which ended with most of the remaining Seminoles, mostly women and children moving to Indian Territory. In 1859, another 75 Seminoles surrendered and were sent to the West, but a small number continued to live in the Everglades.On the eve of the Civil War, Florida had the smallest population of the Southern states. It was invested in plantation agriculture. By 1860, Florida had 140,424 people, of whom 44% were enslaved and fewer than 1,000 free people of color. Florida is the southernmost contiguous state in the United States. The state is bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the northwest by Alabama, to the north by Georgia, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the Straits of Florida. Florida is the 22nd-most extensive (65,755 sq mi—170,304 km2), the 3rd-most populous (20,984,400 inhabitants), and the 8th-most densely populated(384.3/sq mi—121.0/km2) of the U.S. states. Jacksonville is the most populous municipality in the state and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States (due to the consolidation of Jacksonville with Duval County). The Miami metropolitan area is Florida’s most populous urban area. Tallahassee is the state’s capital.About two-thirds of Florida occupies a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), not including the contribution of the many barrier islands. It is the only state that borders both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and is characterized by sedimentary soil. Florida has the lowest high point of any U.S. state. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. The American alligator, American crocodile, Florida panther, and manatee can be found in Everglades National Park in the southern part of the state. Along with Hawaii, Florida is one of only two states that has a tropical climate and is the only continental U.S. state with a tropical climate.Since the first European contact was made in 1513 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León – who named it La Florida “land of flowers”) upon landing there in the Easter season, Pascua Florida – Florida was a challenge for the European colonial powers before it gained statehood in the United States in 1845. It was a principal location of the Seminole Wars against the Native Americans, and racial segregation after the American Civil War.Today, Florida is distinctive for its large Cuban expatriate community and high population growth, as well as for its increasing environmental issues. The state’s economy relies mainly on tourism, agriculture, and transportation, which developed in the late 19th century. Florida is also world renowned for amusement parks, orange crops, winter vegetables, the Kennedy Space Center, and as a popular destination for retirees.Florida’s close proximity to the ocean influences many aspects of Florida culture and daily life. Florida is a reflection of influences and multiple inheritances; African, European, indigenous, and Latino heritages can be found in the architecture and cuisine. Florida has attracted many writers such as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Ernest Hemingway, and Tennessee Williams, and continues to attract celebrities and athletes. It is internationally known for golf, tennis, auto racing and water sports.

Architects: Torafu Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses House in Ookayama / Torafu Architects Photographs: Daici Ano Text description provided by the architects. Two generations live in this three-storied wooden house located in a Tokyo residential area. The site corresponds to a 4.7 m wide × 16.5 m long fringe of the land where the owner’s parents lived. Furthermore, the site is enclosed by buildings on three sides while its northern side abuts directly on the street. The layout was designed to alleviate the impression of narrowness of the frontage as much as possible and make the best use of the site’s conditions within the maximum volume allowed by setback restrictions. To minimize pressure from the corridor on the frontage path we devised a basic plan that placed the entrance and stairs at the center while the bedroom and public areas are divided on a north-south axis.

Above the bedroom on the 2nd floor is a children’s room that resembles a huge table. Each part is connected by stairs bearing a different design and the space between some of the steps can be used for storage as well. The floor of the living room on the 2nd floor extends into the bedroom where it serves as a desk. The toilet in the intermediary storage space sticks out into the 2nd floor to act as a light-well and a table. The bay window in the wall connecting to the ceiling can also become a bench, giving a sense of loftiness to the whole space. Boards placed between the four sturdy walls passing through the 1st to 3rd floor become shelves and desks that make for a big storage wall by using the structure of the house. Save this picture!© Daici AnoThis random-looking composition is made like a multifunctional stacking that can be seen as one large piece of furniture. We implemented a cross-section design free from the hierarchical configuration of a normal building, blurring the boundaries between building and furniture. From the fitting of the terrace to the placement of the shelves and other minute details, we employed a construction method by aggregation whereby each architectural component becomes a piece of furniture. This makes the house a vessel that allows for perpetual change to take place and leaves enough leeway for its inhabitants to add their own touch after they move in.Save this picture!© Daici AnoProject gallerySee allShow lessTel Aviv Museum of Art / Preston Scott CohenArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share House in Ookayama / Torafu ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse in Ookayama / Torafu Architects Save this picture!© Daici Ano+ 15 Share Japan Year: ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/137936/house-in-ookayama-torafu-architects Clipboard Photographs “COPY” Area: 105 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/137936/house-in-ookayama-torafu-architects Clipboard “COPY” 2010 CopyAbout this officeTorafu ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidentialHousesJapanPublished on May 24, 2011Cite: “House in Ookayama / Torafu Architects” 24 May 2011.

The project consists of a 600 m2 residence for a family of five who sought the tranquillity of the countryside and a nice garden with a view. The place is located in a rural urbanization in the north-eastern hills of Bogotá and Chía, in Cundinamarca, Colombia. It is a lot with an inclination of approximately 30 degrees and has a size of 3879 m2 surrounded by native forest with a predominant view towards the west over a savannah.Save this picture!SiteThe sunlight coincides with the view in the afternoon, which is very convenient throughout the year at this latitude, altitude and climate (2800 m, temperate-cold). On the other hand, the sun only only starts to shine late in the morning from the east, since the sun is covered by the hill and the existing treetops. The access from the road leads through the lower part of the lot.Save this picture!South ElevationSave this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe house is implanted adapting to the land in parallel to the contours in two tiered floors each one with a garden: the first hosts the social areas and the service areas arranged in a south-north longitudinal way, serving as containment of the highest eastern part of the terrain and opening to a large outdoor terrace overlooking the savanna. In this way, the roof forms a levelled platform between the eastern part of the terrain and the volume of the first floor.Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe second floor is laid out on this platform as a volume arranged in an east-west direction, consisting of the bedrooms and the family room, with an overhang above the social area serving as an eave, with a privileged view for the main bedroom and its private terrace to the west. The three children’s bedrooms open to the east to a more private garden at the level of the second floor in relation to the hill. The family living room takes advantage of the south-western corner of the first-floor platform as a terrace and opens onto both views. This is how the house has a garden or terraces at both levels regardless of the sloping terrain, either on the first floor as exterior areas of the living room, study, dining room and kitchen or on the second floor for the bedrooms and the family living room.Save this picture!Section 1Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe first floor as a long platform is partially covered by the volume of the second floor, which leaves free areas at both ends of the platform to have terraces to the south and canopies and skylights to the north that guarantee sunlight in the morning hours in the service areas. Likewise, the stairs go up through a double-height void in the heart of the house with a large canopy that allows natural light taking advantage of the morning sun as soon as it rises behind the eastern hill and continues until the afternoon, marking the passage of time, not only in the day but in the change of direction throughout the year.Save this picture!Floor Plan First FloorThe house was intentionally designed with very few local materials of low-maintenance that generate continuity, such as the large format Bogota brick for all facades, the bright-coloured brushed earth marble terraces, the interior floors and the carpentry in natural wood and blank walls as a neutral environment that the owners can customize. As sustainability strategies, in addition to the hollow brick walls with air chambers, the aluminium window frames have double thermal glass to ensure insulation and low energy consumption. During day time, the naturally well-lit house does not require the use of artificial lighting, which are Led lights, the heating that was installed preventively works with solar panels of hot water on the roof of the garage (which according to the owners is little used because of the suns heat and the insulation of the house). A reservoir of drinking water and tanks and a treatment plant for rainwater were built. Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe vehicular access ascends along the perimeter through the northern part of the lot to a guest parking at the level of the first floor. The garage is the extension of the longitudinal volume of the first floor framing the view. The access facade is very closed and private. The pedestrian access crosses a water patio formed by stone walls and finds the door in the centre of the general scheme of the house at an intermediate level between the first and the second floor.Save this picture!Floor Plan Second FloorThe main circulation defines a north-south axis that ascends the stairs relating the two volumes, always with visual links through windows to the outside. By descending a few steps from the access level one reaches the dining room with a more collected proportion of three meters hight. By descending some steps further one reaches the living room and the study of three and a half meters hight. The living room and the dining room form a large common space without columns but at a slope to differentiate them, and have a large 180-degree window that opens onto the terrace and western garden under the cantilever of the main bedroom. The studio forms the glassed south-western corner. The large central fireplace is shared by the study and the living room, while it also separates and defines the two spaces.Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe kitchen at the dining room level opens to a terrace higher than the living room terrace, generating a set of levels that follows a continuity from the interior to the exterior. The kitchen and laundry room have longitudinal skylights that heat the space since the morning. Due to the uneven terrain at the north end, the service room and technical room are located one level below the garage and open to the western facade with its own garden. A general deposit was projected behind the stairs in a continuing line with the study and a workshop or multipurpose space that can serve as a guest bedroom with a facade to the south-west.Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaWhen ascending the stairs along with the illuminated void, the circulation ends on the terrace of the family room that gives the impression of reaching another first floor. To one side of the staircase hall, the central void is crossed by a bridge to access the main bedroom, while the children’s bedrooms are accessed on the other side.Project gallerySee allShow lessWAF 2019: Day 2 Winners AnnouncedArchitecture NewsSouth Africa’s Waste to Wonder Pavilion Transforms Public Space with Upcycled TrashArchitecture News Share Projects Area: 612 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Colombia CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Colombia Photographs: Andrés Valbuena Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year: “COPY” 2016 Architects: Baquerizo Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/929657/fusca-house-baquerizo-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBAQUERIZO ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsColombiaPublished on December 05, 2019Cite: “Fusca House / BAQUERIZO Arquitectos” [Casa Fusca / BAQUERIZO Arquitectos] 05 Dec 2019.
