Studio for Arranz Bravo / Garcés – De Seta – Bonet

The new building is designed for a sole activity: creation, an introspective and solitary experience, just as the painter told us. This led us to handle the volume compactly, with a uniform exterior design –layers of insulation and clear stucco in an expressive continuance of walls and cover– to establish a feeling of familiarity with the natural surroundings in an unobtrusive manner. The interior is a fluid and multiple concrete cavity – a direct result of the monolithic structural construction concept and the search for harsh and naked spaces that serve the artistic work that takes place inside.The plot of land is sloping, with an abundance of trees on the northern face of Tibidabo, and is adjacent to the painter’s house. The small building has the largest –12 m x 13.5 m–, and emptiest painting studio possible, a result of the meeting between the prismatic volume and the land, a workshop for sculpture and a store for the painter’s own work.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe studio, a space with no views, receives light primarily from a large skylight in the meeting point of the four sloping roofs that irregularly finish the definition of the space from the crowning horizontal line of the 5-metres high periphery walls.A staircase, positioned unobtrusively to one side so as not to break the unity of the studio, leads to the lower floor with less clearance height (3.5 m-). The rear space closest to the retaining walls is designed for storing works of art and the front area, which is a sculpture workshop, opens fully, with a large scored fissure with a landscape layout, onto an outer work terrace offering views of the dense greenery that distinguishes the place.  The construction system used for this project was designed compactly, as required by the final image of the building. Above a suspended floor that separates the inner space from direct contact with the land, four reinforced concrete screens make up the inner space and provide the finish.Save this picture!First Floor PlanFor thermal insulation and waterproofing, a non-conventional solution was chosen in order to ensure the aforementioned interior finish. The whole insulation system will be installed outside.To achieve the desired image of continuity between the vertical face and pitched roof, Weber material was selected, which provides the bond for the thermal insulation and soundproofing mortar layer. A special watertight mesh was placed over the thermal layer to ensure, with support from the four sloping roofs, proper water drainage.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaStructurally, the whole acts in a compact, uniform manner, and only the large opening in the ground floor allows the upper part of the building to function as a large structural girder, thus removing the need for any external system, and allowing the material and the chosen construction system to solve the structural system.  The seal of the large roofing skylight is achieved during the actual implementation in a carpentry workshop, and is supported by the sloping window pane slightly facing south, which additionally facilitates the entrance of natural light inside the building, a primary target for the user. Project gallerySee allShow lessErik Møller Arkitekter to Modernize Alvar Aalto’s KunstenMiscUnified Architectural Theory: Chapter 4Articles Share Studio for Arranz Bravo / Garcés – De Seta – Bonetcenter_img Save this picture!© Adrià Goula+ 18 Share 2013 ArchDaily “COPY” Year:  Photographs Area:  167 m² Area:  167 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project photographs:  Adrià GoulaPhotographs:  Adrià Goula ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/507115/studio-for-arranz-bravo-garces-de-seta-bonet Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGarcés – De Seta – BonetOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarcelonaOfficesHousesSpainPublished on May 26, 2014Cite: “Studio for Arranz Bravo / Garcés – De Seta – Bonet” 26 May 2014.

Surgical complications are top reason for hospital readmissions

first_imgProblems related to surgery—mostly from surgical wound infections—are the most common reason that people wind up readmitted to the hospital, according to a new study. Patient safety expert Lucian Leape says such complications are a significant problem that causes much pain and suffering.Leape, adjunct professor of health policy at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, wrote about surgical complications—and how to reduce them—in a February 3, 2015 JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) editorial accompanying the study.The study, which looked at 500,000 operations in the U.S., found a nearly 6% overall hospital readmission rate in 2012, mostly attributable to surgical complications. The most frequent complication—infections from surgical wounds—occurred in about 5,500 patients. But nationwide the total number of these infections “is probably 20 to 30 times higher than that: 111,000 to 167,000,” Leape told HealthDay. “Cutting that in half, which I believe is possible, would eliminate pain and suffering in tens of thousands of people every year.”Leape said systems changes are key to reducing the rate of surgical complications. “The most powerful methods for reducing harm are feedback, learning from the best, and working in collaboration,” he wrote in the JAMA editorial.

Boston community health workers get public health training in Harvard Chan program

first_imgTen local public health practitioners — all graduates of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Leaders in Health program — discussed their efforts to promote health and wellness in the Boston area at a Nov. 16 capstone event for the program. The practitioners came from city health departments, community-based organizations, and local health coalitions focused on public health issues ranging from physical activity to sexual health to housing justice.The eight-week Leaders in Health program offers community public health workers without a formal public health education an introduction to the field, including the fundamentals of program design and evaluation and community-based participatory research. The program uses an expanded curriculum developed by Harvard Chan School’s Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity.Community wellnessParticipants said the Leaders in Health program gave them valuable tools to assess community health needs and to evaluate programs they help run.Nancy Smith, program manager for public health preparedness at the Boston Public Health Commission, discussed a program that teaches Muslim women and girls how to swim, both to make them safer in the water and to improve their cardiovascular health.Nancy Rihan-Porter, coordinator for injury and violence prevention at the Cambridge Public Health Department, talked about her work to revitalize the 25-year-old Cambridge Prevention Coalition, a community-based effort to fight substance abuse.Karen Gately, executive director of the Roxbury Tenants of Harvard (RTH), discussed her efforts to improve health and wellness among residents of the Longwood-area apartment complex—and to get more people to use the building’s gym.Gately said the Leaders in Health program helped show her the benefits of using “an integrated, comprehensive approach” to boost RTH residents’ health — by involving them in the process, conducting periodic surveys, and evaluating data. “We want to be able to measure what we’re doing, to know if our efforts are really making a difference,” she said.Other participants in the program came from a range of organizations, including the Mission Hill Health Movement, the Boston Elder Health Disparities Coalition, the Boston Alliance for Community Health, Action for Boston Community Development, and Urban Edge Housing Corporation.Strengthening school-community tiesRa’Shaun Nalls, director of community engagement at Harvard Chan School, and Rebekka Lee, research scientist in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, coordinate the Leaders in Health program. Harvard Chan students Lauren Southwick, M.P.H. ’18, and Hila Bernstein, M.P.H. ’18, provided assistance with this year’s cohort.“Our School benefits through the formal establishment of relationships with organizations, which allows us to identify local practicum opportunities for students, emerging public health challenges in the city of Boston, and potential community partners for faculty who conduct community-oriented research,” said Nalls.Added Lee, “Leaders in Health exemplifies the concept of co-learning that is critical for authentic community engagement. While participants are building their public health skills to strengthen their programs, Harvard Chan leaders and students have the unique opportunity to learn about the fantastic public health work that is going on in our local community.”– Karen Feldscher Read Full Storylast_img read more
