FootprintThe commission for this seasonal home located in a subdivision near Lake Villarrica, required the design of a volume located at the center of the plot, to build the smallest possible footprint and a low building height. As a response, we devised a coiled shape, which like a croissant, reduces the extent of the house, sets a center within it, and has a perimeter that constructs a figure composed of many faces.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehVolume and FigureThe broken and twisted perimeter of the volume fulfills a double function. On one hand, it turns the enclosures to the exterior views, while addressing the multiple fronts imposed by the location of the house through its different faces and facades. The center of the figure in turn contains the access courtyard to the house, a common area surrounded and shared by the circulation and public rooms.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehInterior ContinuityWithin this twisted form of low-rise, efforts were made to achieve spatial continuity and light gain. Enclosures constructed lengths through the summation and extension of each other, resulting in continuity of perspectives and circulation.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehThis continuity is highlighted through a skylight that runs the sheet that covers and defines the roof of the house. Due to the requirement of a low height, making this skylight results from the break and fold of this sheet, increasing light and ventilation through the roof.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessCantagua Residence / Raimundo AnguitaSelected ProjectsMaison Simon / Mathieu Noël & Élodie Bonnefous architectesSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeMobil ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVillarricaChilePublished on January 13, 2014Cite: “Villarica House 2 / Mobil Arquitectos” [Casa Villarica 2 / Mobil Arquitectos] 13 Jan 2014.

The bench comprised of Justices RF Nariman and Navin Sinha has granted liberty to the Petitioner to place its representation before the Union Ministry of Finance within two weeks. “The representation will be made within a period of two weeks from today. The Ministry of Finance is directed to reply to the said representation within a period of four weeks after receiving such representation,” the bench has ordered. The Petitioners, Saurabh Jain and Rahul Sharma had approached the Apex Court stating that even though the Ministry of Finance itself had, by a Circular, directed personal guarantees issued by promoters/managerial personnel to be invoked, the PSBs continued to not invoke such guarantees, resulting in huge loss not only to the public exchequer but also to the common man. They pointed out that loan amounts of approximately Rs. 1,85,000 crores were unrecovered, certainly because PSBs do not adopt efficient and timely methods for recovery of loans advanced by them, unlike private sector banks. “There are at least 42 large corporate entities in respect of which personal guarantees have been given by promoters/directors/ managerial personnel amounting to approximately Rs. 1,85,000 crores. Nearly all the corporate entities listed above have defaulted in repayment of loans taken by them from PSBs. However, no personal guarantees have been invoked thus far and proceedings initiated under the provisions of Part III of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016,” the plea stated. It was asserted that the funds infused by the Government into PSBs are essentially public monies, which are then used by such PSBs for inter alia, onward lending. In this backdrop they submitted, “when PSBs do not take timely action and pursue all remedies available to them in recovering loans advanced by them, the same amounts to a loss of public monies and is detrimental to public interest.” They highlighted that PSBs have higher NPAs/ bad debts than private sector banks, as evident from the Economic Survey of 2019-20 published by the Ministry of Finance, as per which: “In 2019, every rupee of taxpayer money invested in PSBs on an average, lost 0.23 paise. In contrast, every rupee of investor money invested in private-sector banks, on average, gained 9.6 rupees.” Lastly they asserted that Bank frauds involving PSBs take place due to the involvement of employees of such PSBs, and prayed that a detailed enquiry/ investigation be carried out with respect to the reasons for the failure on the part of PSBs to invoke the personal guarantees of promoters/directors/managerial personnel of defaulter companies. The petition had been drawn and filed by Mr. Durga Dutt, Advocate-On-Record, Supreme Court of India and argued by Mr. Manan Kumar Mishra, Senior Advocate. Case Title: Saurabh Jain & Anr. v.

Climate changes in the North Atlantic region during the last glacial cycle were dominated by the slow waxing and waning of the North American ice sheet as well as by intermittent, millennial-scale Dansgaard–Oeschger climate oscillations. However, prior to the last deglaciation, the responses of North American vegetation and biomass burning to these climate variations are uncertain. Ammonium in Greenland ice cores, a product from North American soil emissions and biomass burning events, can help to fill this gap. Here we use continuous, high-resolution measurements of ammonium concentrations between 110,000 to 10,000 years ago from the Greenland NGRIP and GRIP ice cores to reconstruct North American wildfire activity and soil ammonium emissions. We find that on orbital timescales soil emissions increased under warmer climate conditions when vegetation expanded northwards into previously ice-covered areas. For millennial-scale interstadial warm periods during Marine Isotope Stage 3, the fire recurrence rate increased in parallel to the rapid warmings, whereas soil emissions rose more slowly, reflecting slow ice shrinkage and delayed ecosystem changes. We conclude that sudden warming events had little impact on soil ammonium emissions and ammonium transport to Greenland, but did result in a substantial increase in the frequency of North American wildfires.
