House 60 is a renovation and addition to a 50’s suburban house on a large lot in Toronto, Canada.The existing house was largely introverted—small windows, low ceilings—with a traditional plan—living room, separate dining room and cramped kitchen on the ground floor, and a maze of bedrooms on the second. An undistinguished building from the exterior—brick with a shallow sloping roof—adorned over time with a wrought iron front porch and aluminum awnings. However underwhelming, the existing house was considered by gh3 as a material resource to be reused, rather than abandoned, a position consistent with first principles of sustainability.

Much of the house was re–skinned. This, in combination with the installation of significant interior insulation, greatly reduced the energy requirements of the house. The existing pitched roof was removed and a new flat roof, insulated well beyond code requirements, completed the new high performing envelope. Save this picture!A 2–storey glass wall at the rear of the house, a 1–storey glass wall at front, and multiple skylights maximize the admission of daylight and facilitate passive ventilation. The extensive use of glass at the rear allows for the greatest number of views to the garden and at the front, serves as a modern day front porch, reconnecting the building with its site and the city. Save this picture!The ground floor of the house is organized as a continuous open space to allow for the changing patterns of use of a growing family. The principle living space is flanked longitudinally on both sides with service zones containing storage, media units, a pantry, stairs and mechanical spaces, set behind full–height pivoting wall panels. Floor-to-ceiling glass panels are strategically positioned on the ground and second floors to provide safety for young children while allowing views through all of the principle living spaces. Glass panels and walls are selectively fritted with a super–scaled flock pattern, which amplifies the whiteness of the interior.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessOSKA Architects Selected for Pre-design Study of Burke MuseumArticlesThyssenKrupp Elevator Competition / RSVPArticles Share 2009center_img Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House 60 / gh3Save this projectSaveHouse 60 / gh3 CopyHouses•Toronto, Canada Projects Architects: gh3 Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!+ 18 Share CopyAbout this officegh3OfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoRefurbishmentHousesCanadaPublished on June 19, 2009Cite: “House 60 / gh3” 19 Jun 2009.

Pennsylvania prisons: Breeding grounds for coronavirus

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this PhiladelphiaWhen the coronavirus first became a global pandemic in the spring of 2020, there were widespread demands, met with promises from state officials, to release particularly vulnerable incarcerated workers. Some states and municipalities did release people, but never in the numbers the situation warranted.In April, protesters in Philadelphia called for prisoners to be released due to COVID-19 surge.In April, protesters in Philadelphia called for prisoners to be released due to COVID-19 upsurge.Credit: Joe PietteInstead of broad releases, prison officials in Pennsylvania instituted draconian lockdowns where prisoners daily spent 23 hours in cells and were given only 45 minutes per day to shower, make phone calls or get fresh air. In person visits were stopped, and access to libraries, commissaries and other programs were strictly curtailed. Exercise and hot meals ended.While until recently, only 160 cases of COVID-19 were reported among the incarcerated workers, these restrictive measures never applied to the guards and prison staff, who appear to be the ones bringing COVID-19 into the prisons.Fast forward six months, and prisons, including those in Pennsylvania, are facing a deadly full-blown resurgence of COVID-19 among those incarcerated as well as staff. The result has been outbreaks of COVID-19 in 21 of the 23 state prisons. As of Nov. 12, there have been 17 reported deaths of incarcerated people. At least 442 prisoners and 244 staff have tested positive. According to the Department of Corrections, when staff have requested testing, more than half are positive for the coronavirus. Testing of staff is not mandatory. (, Nov. 12)Rather than release more people or make staff testing mandatory, PADOC officials have responded by moving prisoners who test positive to other prisons or isolation units within a prison. The lockdown policies have been kept in place for over seven months now, amounting to mass torture for the over 46,000 incarcerated workers.The DOC is also limiting testing for incarcerated workers to those facilities with larger outbreaks. In State Correctional Institution Chester just outside Philadelphia, as of Nov. 10, half of prisoners’ test results and 90% of staff tests were positive. Incarcerated workers there are reporting that prison officials are passing out power of attorney and property release forms in anticipation of more deaths. The 943 men in Chester are only tested if they have a fever, even when many are experiencing other classic COVID-19 symptoms.The crisis is not limited to state prisons. A recent court filing by U.S. attorneys reported 80 prisoners and eight staff tested positive at the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia. At the Federal Corrections Institution at Fort Dix, in nearby New Jersey, 150 men out of 220 in one unit tested positive.As far as numbers in county jails, Claire Shubik-Richards, executive director of the Pennsylvania Prison Society said: “We don’t know, because our county governments aren’t telling us, and that is astounding.” (, Nov. 12)The consistent refusal by prison officials to release at-risk incarcerated workers, and to even provide basic PPE and other preventative items, amounts to the cruel and unusual punishment expressly forbidden by the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is turning every sentence into a death sentence with no chance of appeal.last_img read more

RSF accuses China of “murder by lack of care” in Liu Xiaobo’s death

first_imgNews ChinaAsia – Pacific PredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionRSF PrizeNobel PrizeInternet to go further China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News RSF_en News The embodiment of resistance to oppression and the fight for free speech in China, Liu Xiaobo died July 13, less than three weeks after the announcement that he had been moved from a prison in the northeastern province of Liaoning to a nearby hospital with final-stage liver cancer. Chinese writer Liu Xiaobo, who was the 2010 Nobel peace laureate and 2004 RSF press freedom laureate,had been imprisoned since 2008. China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Follow the news on China March 12, 2021 Find out more The Chinese authorities refused to allow him to leave the country to receive medical care abroad, although an international campaign had been urging this. On paper, he had been “released on medical parole” but in practice he was isolated in the hospital and subjected to the strictest surveillance.“It is outrageous that the Chinese authorities waited until Liu Xiaobo’s cancer was in the terminal stage before treating him in hospital,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“It is hard to believe the Chinese prison authorities were so incompetent as to not notice a cancer developing in such a high-profile detainee as Liu Xiaobo. As well as arbitrary imprisonment, the Chinese leaders and their accomplices are guilty of murder by lack of care. We call for the immediate release of Liu Xiaobo’s wife, Liu Xia, whose house arrest is clearly detention by another name.”Responsibility of the Chinese state apparatusRSF first accuses Hu Jintao, who was president when Liu Xiaobo was arrested and tried, and his successor, the current president, Xi Jinping, a predator of press freedom. Other senior Chinese leaders must also be held responsible: Prime Minister Li Keqiang and his predecessor Wen Jiabao; Wu Aiying, who was justice minister at the time, and his successor, Zhang Jun; and the other members of the Standing Committee of the Central Political Bureau of the Communist Party: Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan and Zhang Gaoli.By allowing Liu Xiaobo and thousands of other human rights defenders to be imprisoned, these leaders constantly trample on the constitution of the People’s Republic of China, which explicitly guarantees free speech and media freedom. They are supposed to implement this constitution at the highest level.But pointing the finger at the most senior leaders is not enough. We must not forget the “foot soldiers” in the Chinese repressive apparatus who were accomplices: Jia Lianchun, the president of Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court, his assessors Zheng Wenwei and Zhai Changxi, and the prosecutors Zhang Rongge and Pan Xueqing, who were all happy to convict Liu Xiaobo in a trial lasting just two hours.The following officials must also be held responsible for mistreating Liu Xiaobo and denying him medical care: Chen Qiufa, the governor of Liaoning province; Li Xi, the secretary of the Liaoning provincial committee of the Communist Party; Ma Zhenfeng, the former director of Jinzhou prison, in Liaoning province, where Liu Xiaobo, was held; and Wang Zhansuo, his successor.China signed the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in 1998 but took care never to ratify it. Harassment and acts of violence against civil rights activists and citizen-journalists have increased since 2013, when Xi Jinping took over as president.“The authorities at least pretended to be trying to improve the human rights situation in previous decades,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau. “But Xi Jinping’s administration has brazenly rehabilitated practices worthy of the Maoist era – abduction, holding detainees incommunicado and without trial, systematic torture and mistreatment, and televised forced confessions.”Ranked near the bottom of RSF’s World Press Freedom Index (176th out of 180 countries), China is one of the world’s biggest prisons for journalists and civil rights activists.
