An addition to the Helsinki University campus area in Kumpula neighborhood. The building comprises communal spaces and more than 200 student apartments. The small site is wedged on a steep slope between heavy traffic and the faculty buildings. Due to the heavy traffic apartments could partly be opened only to the courtyard. The subsequent semi-cold access gallery forms the main façade of the building. The pleated façade both protects the indoor spaces from solar overheating and disperses the heavy traffic noises so that it doesn’t reverberate to the opposing low-rise residential area.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoFrom the south, the facade is closed and blank whereas when approaching from the north the façade is more open and welcoming. In addition to the pale brickwork, this more abstract façade connects the new residential building more intuitively to the surrounding larger scale university teaching and research buildings. To emphasize this, the fenestration of the other facades is a generic grid.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoDue to the steeply sloped site, the street-side entrance is on the basement level whereas the courtyard entrance is on the 2nd floor. Most of the communal spaces are located on the 1st floor so that they are visible from both entrance levels to encourage students’ socialization and participation in communal events. Communal spaces are also connected to a void/spiral staircase interconnecting the floors and entrance levels.Save this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoSave this picture!FacadeSave this picture!© Tuomas UusheimoProject gallerySee allShow lessProject locationAddress:Gustav Vasas väg 4, 00560 Helsingfors, FinlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Gladys Qualls nodded.“It’s wonderful,” she said, standing on the side gym floor after one of those ceremonies Saturday. “It warms my heart to see.”More than 100 area athletes competed in Special Olympics Texas’ region-wide basketball competition on Saturday at Odessa College, to mark the culmination of weeks of practice and work for dozens of athletes in the organization’s Permian Basin and Big Bend area.The tournament saw 111 athletes register to play, from ages ranging from eight years old to over 60, in events including an individual skills competition, a team skills competition, 3-on-3 team basketball and 5-on-5 full-court basketball.“They’re just like any other athlete,” said Qualls, a volunteer coach with a Midland team that competed in each of the days’ team competitions. “They work hard, and this is the end result of their training, just like the Olympics right now that’s going on. They have the same goals, maybe on the smaller scale here, but their feelings are the same, their excitement is the same.“And they love winning that medal,” she smiled.Qualls, whose son competed and who has been involved in area Special Olympics events for more than 20 years, called Saturday’s competition a major success, as did Norm Arias, Special Olympics Texas’ state-wide Director of Field Services.“It’s been really good,” Arias said, as the event winded down Saturday afternoon.This event was one of 19 taking place across the state in each of Special Olympics Texas’ 19 areas. The participants in Saturday’s event qualified to participate in the State Games on the campus of Texas-Arlington at the end of May.Here in the organization’s Permian Basin and Big Bend area, Arias said entry numbers kept steady this year, but volunteer support has only gotten better.“Community support has grown,” Arias said. “Volunteers over here, it’s just overwhelmingly larger than what we’ve had in the past.“It shows that the community is starting to get aware of our athletes, their capabilities, and want to be part of it.”Arias noted that events like Saturday’s provide the opportunity to teach athletes sportsmanship and teamwork, while also building self-esteem and self-confidence.At the same time, the event brings local families together to meet and pool resources in the area’s community.“It shows our families, when they have a chance to come out here for big events like this, that they’re not alone,” Arias said. “Other families are in the same situation.“It’s a good resource. They exchange names and numbers and they’re able to share experiences.”Special Olympics Texas’ next event scheduled in the area is its track and field Spring Games event, set for April 21. The organization’s area soccer competition event is set for May 12. Those interested in the organization or its upcoming events can visit sotx.org.Until then, Saturday’s competition was a winner.“I’m excited,” Qualls said. “All in all, I see the enthusiasm of the athletes, and it always warms my heart to see them being happy.” OC employee of the year always learning Facebook From every dribble and every pass, to every blast of the buzzer and every swish of nylon, Saturday had the look and sound of any other day of competition in the OC Sports Center.Lights shined overhead onto the same kind of contest. The court floor would’ve felt a familiar thrill of competition in each of the sneakers passing over.It was all the same, from the pre-game jitters to the sportsmanship in each post-game handshake. All the same — until, perhaps, the award ceremonies after.There, as congratulations were offered, and hard work was recognized, the smiles might’ve been just a little wider.

HUD Addresses Discrimination in Housing

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago According to NPR, a proposal from HUD on the Fair Housing Act would target “disparate impact,” or unintentional discrimination. Critics of the proposed rule have stated that it would limit the ability to fight discrimination in housing.”It’s important because it allows us to really get at discrimination that’s not intentional,” says Nikitra Bailey, a lawyer with the nonprofit Center for Responsible Lending on NPR.According to Roger Clegg, President of the Center for Equal Opportunity, “There are always going to be racially disproportionate results for any policy.””If you have a landlord who says, ‘I’m not going to rent to people with a history of violent crime,’ ” Clegg says. “The fact that that has a racially disproportionate result does not make it discrimination.”According to NPR, HUD says it can’t comment on the proposed rule yet. But in an earlier statement, HUD Secretary Ben Carson said the department “remains committed to making sure housing-related policies and practices treat people fairly.”According to an article by economist John Wake in Forbes, the black homeownership rate is not vastly different now than what it was when the 1968 Fair Housing Act became law.Wake notes that black homeownership increased by 20% from 1950 to 1970, before housing discrimination was outlawed. Since the Act, however, the rate has remained flat. Wake offers some possible explanations.Wake notes that, as a form of compromise, the Fair Housing Act did not include strong enforcement powers.“Just four months after the Fair Housing Act was signed into law, the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 was signed into law,” Wake said. “It included the soon to be infamous Section 235 program from FHA that let lower-income people who couldn’t qualify for other mortgages get these new subsidized mortgages with down payments as low as $200 and subsidized, below-market interest rates as low as 1%.”HUD’s proposal is expected to be released sometime in August.
