The Eden Art Wall apartment development explores the line between architecture and sign. This urban infill project is located in a varied and complex part of the Sydney cityscape and is visible from many vantages. The office sought to explore the possibilities of adding to the tapestry as a piece of art in the urban landscape. The project comprises 24 apartments consisting of a mix of 1bed, 2 bed and 3 bed penthouses. The project is located in a narrow laneway adjoining apartments to the east, and looks onto the Frasers Central Park development to the west. Save this picture!Courtesy of Tony Owen PartnersInitially we determined the design envelope and the unit layouts to maximize amenity, views, ventilation, solar access and efficiency. The 2 principle facades faced entirely different issues, The eastern façade is in close proximity to adjoining apartments and contains the principle living areas for solar access. This façade has a fully operable façade with a combination of glass, silver metal and red metal louvers to control privacy. The west façade contains bedrooms and circulation corridors. We used vertical louvers here to control western sun. This is the art wall. Save this picture!Courtesy of Tony Owen PartnersVertical louvres of varying colours and textures create a pattern on the eight-storey facade that is discernable only from a distance. Up close it’s just a part of the colour of the city, by when viewed from afar a distinct image emerges of fabric flowing in the breeze. Five visual concepts were trialed, including the face of a Kate Blanchette. In a unique approach, the final image was chosen from an on-line poll of various options to allow the public to decide the streetscape of their city. Some Council officers even registered their preference, with the abstract fabric design being judged more appropriate than the graphic of the attractive blonde, the floating clouds, the cityscape and the CBD skyline.

Lack of urgency could doom the future development of an ‘intelligent bank’

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The status quo in retail banking is tottering. It’s under siege from new technologies, new consumer expectations, new competitors and new regulations. This has forced banks and credit unions to modify their business models, re-prioritize investments, change products and services offered and ramp up innovation efforts. There has also been a rethinking of distribution options, with digital channels significantly increasing in importance.These shifts are reflected in the sixth iteration of a study of the future of retail banking conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit, on behalf of Temenos. Until this year, the changes in consumer behavior were believed to be the primary impetus for changes in retail banking strategies. For the first time, the key driver for change is considered to be new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, the Internet of Things and other technologies underpinned by data and advanced analytics. And the forecast from those surveyed is that the importance of new technologies will only get greater in the future (2020 to 2025). This is reinforced by the importance of regulations on data technology – which is also projected to increase in the longer view. continue reading »last_img read more

US coronavirus cases top 6 million as Midwest, schools face outbreaks

first_imgUS cases of the novel coronavirus surpassed 6 million on Sunday as many states in the Midwest reported increasing infections, according to a Reuters tally.Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota have recently reported record one-day increases in new cases while Montana and Idaho are seeing record numbers of currently hospitalized COVID-19 patients.Nationally, metrics on new cases, deaths, hospitalizations and the positivity rates of tests are all declining, but there are emerging hotspots in the Midwest. Topics : More than eight months into the pandemic, the United States continues to struggle with testing. The number of people tested has fallen in recent weeks.Many health officials and at least 33 states have rejected the new COVID-19 testing guidance issued by the Trump administration last week that said those exposed to the virus and without symptoms may not need testing.Public health officials believe the United States needs to test more frequently to find asymptomatic COVID-19 carriers to slow the spread of the disease.While the United States has the most recorded infections in the world, it ranks tenth based on cases per capita, with Brazil, Peru and Chile having higher rates of infection, according to a Reuters tally.The United States also has the most deaths in the world at nearly 183,000 and ranks 11th for deaths per capita, exceeded by Sweden, Brazil, Italy, Chile, Spain, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Peru.center_img Many of the new cases in Iowa are in the counties that are home to the University of Iowa and Iowa State University, which are holding some in-person classes. Colleges and universities around the country have seen outbreaks after students returned to campus, forcing some to switch to online-only learning.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday said his state was sending a “SWAT team” to a State University of New York (SUNY) campus in Oneonta in upstate New York to contain a COVID-19 outbreak. Fall classes, which started last week at the college, were suspended for two weeks after more than 100 people tested positive for the virus, about 3% of the total student and faculty population, SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras said.”We have had reports of several large parties of our students at Oneonta last week, and unfortunately because of those larger gatherings, there were several students who were symptomatic of COVID,” Malatras said.Across the Midwest, infections have also risen after an annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota drew more than 365,000 people from across the country from Aug. 7 to 16. The South Dakota health department said 88 cases have been traced to the rally.last_img read more
