The house designed by the team is a composition of cubes and facades designed to fit the topography and appreciate the textures and materials.Save this picture!Section CCThe project is in a site near Sao Paulo, a former Alpine-style house with beautiful landscaping around a large lake created by the owners over 20 years. The proposal was to address three generations of the family, so the alpine style was replaced by the contemporary.Save this picture!© Tuca ReinésExtremely bold, but very practical, the lifestyle of the family brings a typical weekend in search of a safe haven.Save this picture!© Tuca ReinésThe project gathers the union between the typical landscape with the construction, the understanding of the local topography, views, prevailing winds and sunlight. Existing slopes with the natural landscape of the lake were the main conditions of this proposal. It is as if this project was developed in front of a deserted beach with all rooms enjoying the outside view.Save this picture!© Tuca ReinésThe siting then comes as a huge pavilion that cuts the existing plateau, the upper volume consists of a large minimalist rectangle that is a balance between a cubic volume of stones. To give continuity to the external views in front of the residence, we laid out trees rigidly on a geometric grid. The light-colored floor is formed by stones in the same shade as the stone of the residence.Save this picture!© Tuca ReinésThe ladscape by Renata Tilli worked very well in the proposal and appropriated the existing species.Save this picture!© Tuca ReinésThe interior design integrates landscape, building, interiors and decoration.

Guest Column: Investment in canal continues to pay off

first_imgIt’ll make stops in the Capital Region from June 21-28. I’ve seen the GlassBarge in action and it’s an experience not to be missed.The Erie Canal has been a showcase of the Electric City for nearly two centuries. But it has never been content with just its legacy, as Mohawk Harbor can attest.  That’s important, given the temptation to take the Erie Canal for granted, given its longevity.But it, of course, serves a very different purpose now than back when mules were still pulling barges. As it nears its third century of operations, the Erie Canal’s identity in the region can evolve again still.And the local arts scene is poised to ensure that change will only be for the better.Brian U. Stratton is the director of the New York State Canal Corporation and a former mayor of Schenectady. More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists I’m confident the same will be said for the soon-to-open amphitheater at the $480 million Rivers Casino and Mohawk Harbor development. Talk about water music! Simply put, the arts can be an essential economic driver in the region and can also promote community engagement and sustainability. Those are topics that will be explored May 9 at a forum at Schenectady County Community College, itself no stranger to excellence in the arts.Getting people out to hear music also means they can experience what else the city has on offer.Last December, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced a $503,251 investment in Schenectady with a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program grant to design a new dockage system at Mohawk Harbor to accommodate major canal tourism, and to construct a new multi-use pedestrian trail that will link to the Erie Canalway Trail and the Governor’s Empire State Trail system.When completed in 2020, it will be a 750-mile network of multi-use trails stretching from New York City to the Canadian border and from Albany to Buffalo.Visitors and residents alike can already use the Erie Canalway Trail to explore the arts-canals connection, including an especially notable visit by the Corning Museum of Glass.It will tour its GlassBarge, a mobile glass-blowing studio to mark the 150th anniversary of when the company that became Corning Glass moved its operations — lock, stock and oven s— in 1868 from Brooklyn to its current home in the Finger Lakes by way of mule, barge and the Erie Canal.center_img Categories: Editorial, OpinionFor the Daily GazetteWhen more than 5,000 people gathered along the banks of the Mohawk River and Erie Canal at the Mabee Farm Historic Site in Rotterdam Junction last July to hear the Albany Symphony Orchestra, they got more than just a concert.The performance was part of the orchestra’s Water Music Tour to celebrate the Erie Canal bicentennial. The crowd was treated to a memorable evening, including new music composed specifically for that concert.But few may have realized they were part of the indelible connection the canal has to a vibrant arts and cultural scene in Schenectady as well as the Capital Region and Mohawk Valley.It is a longstanding connection that continues to grow today.Admittedly, I’m hardly a disinterested observer. As a former mayor of Schenectady, I can’t help but be excited about what’s happening downtown and along the Mohawk River and Erie Canal.Proctors always seems to be upping its own ante. Taking in a show there has always been a special experience for me.last_img read more
