Carefully restored neo-classical facades and a new covered courtyard rooted in traditional Russian architecture is crowned by an expansive contemporary upper extension to this Moscow apartment block, which has been reimagined by London-based AI Studio. Situated in the heart of Moscow within the historical “Garden Ring” road, the building was originally purpose-built as an apartment block in the 1870s but was promptly adopted as a popular local bathing house. Since the 20th century, it has largely been utilized as an administrative office, but Vesper Moscow – the developer who purchased the building in 2016 – had the vision to return it to its original residential use.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoWhen restoring the space, AI Studio aimed to take an “honest” approach to the redevelopment – unashamedly allowing the new extension to contrast the original neo-classical style prevalent in central Moscow. “Although the original building is not formally listed [as a historic monument], we considered it to be a perfect example of classic Moscow architecture,” said the principal of AI Studio, Anton Khmelnitsky. “So, our approach was to sensitively restore the original fabric of the building, whilst designing an upper extension which provides a distinctive contemporary contrast.” The generous extension at the top of the building offers enough space for double-height penthouses within and features cladding of perforated Corten steel composite panels on the exterior.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoFull height glazing boasts unparalleled views of the city. Meanwhile, on the ground floor, the covered courtyard presents a reception and communal area for residents, alongside retail opportunities. This communal area is flooded with natural light from circular glass skylights, which are installed in the elevated private roof terrace directly above the courtyard, exclusively for residents’ use. The freshly extended building named Sovremennik features a collection of 75 apartments ranging in size from 32 to 146 m2 and conveniently includes two floors of parking, with space for up to 43 cars.Save this picture!© Dmitriy ChebanenkoThe Russian architectural bureau Front Architecture has created the interior design for public areas and apartments of the Sovremennik house in Moscow. The residential complex is located in the heart of old Moscow, nearby are famous theaters, which influenced the design idea – the interior is very intelligent and refers to the cultural and historical environment. Front Architecture decorated the lobby walls with corten steel panels which remind of theatre curtain folds. There are many exquisite details in the interior design – on the residential floors, Front Architecture designed the entrance doors of the apartments with decorative metal portals that visually increase the height of the doorways.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe apartment numbers on these metal frames are highlighted using laser cutting with illumination. The welcoming atmosphere of the lobby is created by a complex of thoughtful design solutions: it includes lighting, which provides several scenarios,  exquisite wall decoration, carefully selected furniture in the waiting area. The apartments are designed in light colors with a predominance of smooth surfaces in combination with natural oak. The decoration is made using high-quality materials and fittings.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Observations, Visions, and Considerations on the Impact of the…Call for SubmissionsUtebo Municipal Sports Area / IngennusSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Moscow, RussiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

“SNL” Returns for Quarantine Version with Host Tom Hanks

first_imgNBC’s “Saturday Night Live” returned to the air for the first time in a month over the weekend.The comedy show’s first “quarantine version” was hosted by coronavirus pioneer Tom Hanks, along with Coldplay singer Chris Martin and the entire cast calling in with jokes from their homes.“It is good to be here, though it also very weird to be here hosting `Saturday Night Live’ at home,” Hanks said, while speaking from his kitchen. “It is a strange time to try and be funny, but trying to be funny is `SNL’s whole thing.”Hanks, along with wife Rita Wilson, was among the first to test positive for the virus. They recovered while in Australia.The show’s “cold open” showed all cast members arrayed in an onscreen gallery on the “Zoom” app, a situation that is now familiar to many working from home.“Live from Zoom,” Kate McKinnon said. “It’s sometime between March and August.”Pete Davidson made a mock Drake video, while McKinnon portrayed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doing a workout routine from home.“Every day I eat half a chicken,” she said. “Sorry, chickpea.”Larry David impersonate the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, who dropped out of the presidential race last week.“Don’t worry about me,” he said. “It’s spring in Vermont, so soon it will be up to 40 degrees. And I finally have the time to relax and finish that heart attack from October.”The show maintained its traditional structure with a musical guest and “Weekend Update.” Martin, on acoustic guitar, played a version of Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.”Alec Baldwin, portraying President Trump, called in to “Weekend Update.” He mentioned that “every night at 7 p.m. all of New York claps and cheers for the great job I’m doing,” a reference to the nightly tribute to medical workers.“SNL” also included a tribute to music producer Hal Willner, who scored music for many years on the show and last week after showing symptoms that were consistent with the coronavirus.last_img

Saganism Lives On in Futility

first_img(Visited 523 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Carl Sagan’s daughter picks up where her dad left off, adding an unexpected twist for creatures on a pale blue dot.Space.com reviewed Sasha Sagan’s new book, For Small Creatures Such As We. Basically, Carl Sagan’s daughter thinks that since humans evolved to be ritualistic, we should come up with some secular rituals that atheists can enjoy during their brief, meaningless lives on a speck orbiting a speck in a speckless universe. Reviewer Chelsea Gohd sums it up in her subtitle: “People are born and people die. We’ve all got to get through it one way or another.”“For Small Creatures Such as We” (G.P Putnam’s Sons, 2019), Sagan’s new book pays homage to her late father, the astronomer and science communicator Carl Sagan (whose famous quote from “Contact” inspired the title of the book), and her mother, “Cosmos” co-writer Ann Druyan, while finding traditions and inspiration in the natural world.After becoming a mother, Sagan, who is nonreligious but who has a Jewish background and a husband with a Christian background, realized the importance of having rituals with her own family. But, being secular, she didn’t want to draw on religion to inform their family traditions. Instead, as she explores in the book, Sagan looks to the beauty and “magic” of nature, on our planet and out in the cosmos, to inspire ritual and togetherness in her home.Sasha Sagan advises setting up “secular traditions” that might kindle “wonderment” for families. Perhaps the evolved humans, lost in space, going nowhere, could gain meaning through feelings of “awe” at the vastness of space, and also at human accomplishments, like the success of the solar sail mission. She hopes people might find inspiration in her father and mother’s famous works and memoirs. But can atheists really conjure up awe out of materialism?A separate post on Space.com offers an excerpt from Sasha Sagan’s book. This quote picks up after her correct argument that wishing something to be true does not make it true.So if a person is interested in testing their preconceptions, in discovering how things really are and why, how does one go about that? My parents taught me that the scientific method is designed for precisely this job. My father was a scientist. He was the astronomer and educator Carl Sagan. Science wasn’t just his occupation, it was the source of his worldview, his philosophy, his guiding principles. He and my mom, writer and producer Ann Druyan, taught me that belief requires evidence. They taught me that science wasn’t just a set of facts to be compared and contrasted with other philosophies but a way of testing ideas to see which ones stand up to scrutiny. They taught me that what scientists think today might be disproven tomorrow, and that’s wonderful, because that’s the pathway to a better, deeper understanding.If atheism were disproven tomorrow to her satisfaction, would she find that wonderful? Would she accept theism as the pathway to a better, deeper understanding? Would she be willing to apply the scientific method to secular rituals? Perhaps she could seek evidence that the Stuff Happens Law generates feelings of awe and wonderment. “People are born and people die.” Wow! Oh, what a feeling!The Apostle Paul preached that without Christ’s resurrection—which brings hope that we can be raised like Him—life would be meaningless. “If the dead are not raised, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die” (I Corinthians 15:32). It also means that the worst tyrants and dictators got away with their crimes. It means that our conjured-up attempts at pleasure or wonderment are futile. Our innate sense of justice in the conscience is appalled at that conclusion. Why even try to do right, if that is our fate?Illustra Media illustrated Sagan’s worldview in his own words in this short film, David and the Pale Blue Dot, posted on TheJohn1010Project.com, one of the episodes in their full-length DVD The Call of the Cosmos:The only way that awe can be genuine is if a God of wonders created this universe, the Earth and life for a good purpose. Sagan was a die-hard Darwinist. “Evolution is a fact!” he declared in Cosmos, after sharing an example of artificial selection. “It really happened!” Yes, “stuff happens.” There is a lot of evidence for that. But understanding does not happen by chance. Understanding takes a mind. So does the Scientific Method. The very things that Sagan relied on for his worldview are inaccessible from the Stuff Happens Law he espoused. By trying to see through everything with science, he saw nothing. C. S. Lewis explains why the Scientific Method cannot be applied to everything:Up to that point, the kind of explanation which explains things away may give us something, though at a heavy cost. But you cannot go on explaining away’ for ever: you will find that you have explained explanation itself away. You cannot go on seeing through things for ever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. It is good that the window should be transparent, because the street or garden beyond it is opaque. How if you saw through the garden, too? It is no use trying to ‘see through’ first principles. If you see through everything, then everything is transparent. But a wholly transparent world is an invisible world. To ‘see through’ all things is the same as not to see. (The Abolition of Man, last paragraph)Contrast Sagan’s despairing view of human life to one that recognizes beauty as the work of a loving Creator God. That’s where us tiny humans in a pale blue dot can rejoice in true awe, because beauty has a purpose, to draw us to the Creator. Darwin admitted, “Beauty for its own sake… would be fatal to my theory.” Let Illustra Media show, in its short film Beauty, Darwin and Design, how we are surrounded by a superabundance of beauty that not only is fatal to Darwinism, but lifts us to genuine awe, hope and meaning.

Air New Zealand is out of its league!

first_imgAustralia tends to cast New Zealand a kindly but condescending glance. The way Sydneysiders think of Perth. Or Northern America looks up to but down on Canada. Sure, they’re quaint and cute and friendly, and it’s a fine old spot for a jaunt or a bit of money laundering but c’mon, they’re just not in our league.Air New Zealand is quaint and cute and friendly. And it is a particularly fine way to get to a particularly fine spot. They have those cool safety videos and groovy argyle socks and flight attendants who give you an affectionate handshake after touchdown and thank you for flying with them — and mean it. It’s also completely out its league.There’s a reason — nay, a multitude of reasons — why AirlineRatings.com recently named Air New Zealand the world’s best airline. Like the good folk of New Zealand and their beautiful country, Air New Zealand manages to maintain that charming insouciance and warmth while absolutely belting it out the park in terms of quality, hospitality and dazzling world-class excellence.A trip to must-visit Queenstown on NZ176 aboard one of Air NZ’s sharp new Dreamliners is a special experience.Step aboard this shiny, whisper-quiet shuttle with its ingeniously-designed business Premier-class cabin. Feel genuinely, warmly welcomed in a way you’ve rarely experienced on an aircraft (by cabin crew wearing the coolest uniforms in the sky). Names are exchanged, hands are shaken. You’re mates right away, but only if you want to be. You feel like you could sit down and play a hand of euchre with the flight attendant while swapping Spotify playlists. You could also only speak to them when you want another Portuguese port and they’d also get your vibe and respect your space.The cabin is configured to maximize both space and comfort. While not as spacious as some business-class seats, these lie-flat babies are as comfy as any in the sky. Converting them into a bed is a slightly complicated affair, but your cabin crew mates are right there to talk first-timers through it or just do it all for you.French champagne arrives minutes after I take my seat and pop on the aforementioned turquoise and magenta argyle socks. It’s Charles Heidsieck if you don’t mind. There is also Deutz, a magnificent local NZ sparkling wine.The menu, designed by celebrated chefs Michael Meredith and Peter Gordon, make for exciting reading. For lunch I had a luxurious smoked snapper brandade with poached prawns preserved citron salsa verde and pine nuts. The garlic bread of your carb-and-garlic loaded dreams. The best in-flight dish I’ve ever eaten: blackened salmon with citrus labneh, saffron mash, edamame and steamed spinach. It would have been sublime at sea level let alone at cruising altitude.I politely decline dessert but am even more politely ordered to order the ginger nut ice-cream with dark chocolate sauce and ginger wafer. Thank goodness I did.The intuitive in-flight entertainment system is the best curated selection of music ever found on a plane. Likewise the movies, tv shows and documentaries, all of which can be enjoyed in your little cocoon with fancy headphones.Despite the myriad new released on offer, I watched Tom Cruise (back when he was hot) in Cocktail while drinking Sherwood Pinot Gris from the Waipara Valley.Dinner included a hot-smoked Tasmanian salad in a kind of Nicoise style and handmade Italian meatballs (a textural, tasty combination of pork and veal mince) app soft polenta, a deeply-flavored tomato ragu and plenty of proper parmesan. Once again, I was unsuccessful in my attempts to rebuff dessert advances. Sure, I’ll have a decadent cheese platter. And a glass of sticky? Why not.I like to think could have slept standing up after that gluttony but let’s be honest: the Dreamliner flat beds come pretty easily after all of that, though the deluxe memory-foam mattress, plush doona and two full-size pillows really helped.The return trip to Perth is just as delicious, both culinarily and generally. The lounge at Auckland airport is one of the sexiest we’ve seen, with both a full-service bar and DIY area.Air New Zealand epitomises its Kia Ora catch cry.  A tip for the flag-waving Australian traveller: Don’t be fooled into thinking we’re better or that our national airline is best. Those New Zealanders sure are sweet, but they’re not so innocent after all.Amanda Keenen was NOT a guest of Air New Zealand.last_img read more
