IPL 2021, RCB hotel in UAE: While they are looking to shift base to the UAE by the third week of August, a final call will be taken after discussions with BCCI on quarantine protocols among other things.Another important focus for the remainder of the season is the availability of the foreign stars as the IPL will be closely followed by the T20 World Cup.ALSO READ| Dinesh Karthik ready to become KKR’s captain again in Eoin Morgan’s absenceFranchises are confident that the BCCI will engage in positive discussions with the foreign boards and make the foreign players available for the remaining games.Speaking to ANI, an official of one of the franchises said initial planning and discussions have started, but the exact time of moving to the UAE would also depend on the quarantine rules that the BCCI decides on with the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and the UAE government.“As of now, we only have the communication that the remaining part of the IPL will be held in the UAE after Saturday’s Special General Meeting. We are also aware that the BCCI office-bearers are in talks with the ECB on the plan of action and are currently in Dubai. So once we have a clarity on the protocols that will be in place, especially with regards to teams quarantining after reaching UAE, we can block the hotel rooms accordingly,” the official said. IPL 2021, RCB hotel in UAE: Another official said the teams are focused on knowing about the availability of foreign cricketers for the remaining games as some of the boards might have T20 World Cup preparations on top of their mind and could be reluctant to leave their players free for the IPL.The 2020 edition saw Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders setting up base in Abu Dhabi while the rest of the teams stayed in Dubai.

This eight unit residential project explores the highly efficient and architecturally latent potentials hidden within the traditional form of the Philadelphia “Row” home. The vertical rhythm, regularity yet diversity of this most prevalent residential urban typology was the primary source of inspiration for this experiment. Thin faces fronting both Laurel and Pollard Streets mask and blur conventional lines of demarcation between all eight duplex dwellings both vertically and horizontally. In the process, a degree of density yet expansiveness uncommon to the thin space of the urban duplex emerges. The Philadelphia “Row” is by nature a long, thin slice of dense, sustainable, urban space, typically ‘light-deficient’ and insular at its core. Thin Flats questions this traditional ‘deficiency’ by spatially reconfiguring the relationship between the interior and it’s skin such that its ‘core’ is flooded with light and air. This skin also affords each room on the ‘periphery’ of the dwelling the ability to step outside, and yet remain within the skin.Save this picture!Building Section+ 27Void: Surface: VeilThe façade of Thin Flats is at once a surface and a void, blurring the limits of the units within. The façade of the lower units is pushed back from the sidewalk to accommodate circulation, flood a ‘basement’ space with light, aid in solar shading and create a veil from public view. Balconies on upper floors recess from behind the surface of the veil to create opportunities for civic engagement within the thin space of the façade.Save this picture!© Mariko ReedSave this picture!© Mariko ReedSave this picture!© Sam OberterSustainable elements Third Party verification that each unit is a minimum 50% more energy efficient in cooling, and domestic hot water energy usage than required by code Solar Thermal panels to provide domestic hot water needs Planted ‘green’ roofs to decrease thermal heat gain, prolong roof life, assist in storm water management, and provide planted and habitable rooftop gardens with views of center city Rainwater harvesting cisterns beneath parking area for irrigation of yards / gardens Each unit includes a detailed Home Owner’s Manual outlining the specific features and systems that are offered in the home that make it a LEED Platinum project,.

Knock Knock Heon is located on the border of Seoul, surrounded by an exceptional landscape made up by a forest in the foreground and the famous Bukhansan in the background. Both the architect and the client agreed that the relationship to the mountain would be the guiding line of the project. The building shape is the result of the combination of two conditions. The first one is the relation to the mountain and the second one is the shape of the plot. In order to reduce the density of the house, the spaces are articulated between two Madang (void between the constructions).Save this picture!© Young-chae ParkSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Young-chae ParkThe first one is the residual spaces generated by the relationship between the serrated typology and the Damjang (Korean boundary walls) taking the form of a fragmented courtyard and reinforcing the visual connection from the house to the mountain. The second Madang is located on the backside of the house. More introverted, the sunken Madang is like a patio bringing light and air to the basement spaces. The house is divided into two parts. The level difference between the house floor levels and the road were carefully calculated in order to find the balance. Namely: A constant visual connection to the mountain, the penetration of the light into the inferior storey and an acceptable gap between the level of the road and the entrance.Save this picture!© Young-chae ParkSave this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!© Young-chae ParkThe inferior storey was designed like a bedrock supporting the Hanok. Fulfilling all the functional need of the house, the basement could be used as an autonomous part. As the Hanok is slightly detached from the ground, the light and the air can penetrate into the interior spaces through a clearstory window. Organized around the sunken Madang (patio), the cryptic spaces are bright and comfortable, and does not give the feeling to be in a basement. In order to create a fluid and comfortable space, an anti-chamber was needed. Carefully positioned, the vestibule and staircases are essential parts of the house, not only they act like as generous thresholds between the two floors but also it allows the superior spaces to focus on its relationship with the mountain.Save this picture!Courtesy of guga Urban ArchitectureThe evolution of the structure material highlights the soft transition between the inferior to the superior part. Indeed, starting from the concrete of the basement, we are passing through the brick walls of the interconnected staircase to the wooden structure of the Hanok. The traditional Numaru (a space with a wooden floor that has a panoramic view) inspired the dining room. In this house, the Numaru lays as an object on a concrete plate. This project shows the capacity of the evolution of the traditional Korean Hanok. Thanks to this new shape and the new technologies, this house was able to free some architectural and mechanical constraints from the traditional Hanok and produce more comfort, light and space. Knock Knock Heon fits the need of the modern society but in the same allow a coexistence between the traditional and modern lifestyles.

CopyApartments, Apartment Interiors•Barcelona, Spain Photographs Products used in this ProjectSwitchesGIRAGira E2 – SwitchesText description provided by the architects. The project consist of the remodel of an apartment located in an old building in Barcelona’s Gracia district. The former 90 m2 apartment, was heavily partitioned with up to 6 rooms and gave off a dark appearance with almost no connection with the outdoor space.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe new owners, a Norwegian couple in love with design and with the city of Barcelona, had understood the potential of its sunny inner courtyard covered with ivy vines, and chose to buy it as their holiday residence. They wanted to transform it in a bright and open space and create a semi-exterior garden to overcome the lack of an outdoor space.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosYLAB Arquitectos proposed a concept that frees up the space through important structural changes, opening the façade to the inner courtyard and recovering the historical gallery to revamp it as a gallery-garden.Save this picture!PlanThe new layout revolves around a central open L-shaped space, connected to the gallery-garden and the inner courtyard. The couple’s suite, equipped with large natural wood cabinetry, which integrates a folding table dresser, is placed in the inner area. The suite has its own bathroom that can be accesed as well through a second door from the communal area, serving as guest bath.The layout concept is developed from the segregation of the classical functions into different sub-zones, more aligned to the owners’ particular way of living.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThereby, the kitchen-dining is disintegrated into four sub-zones: the cooking and the washing zones, both in contiguous spaces inside a cabinetry at the front of the communal space; the breakfast zone, in a second angled cabinetry, with hidden space for little kitchen appliances and a removable worktop; and the winery/bar zone, in a third cabinetry closer to the living room. All these zones revolve around this central space, furnished with flexible furniture islands, such as the dining table and the lounge chairs, that compliment each other.The kitchen spaces are integrated into a perimeter cabinetry in natural light oak wood and provided with sophisticated fittings by Blum. Large concealed doors hide the open kitchen workspaces, finished in white Neolith and natural wood. and the large kitchen appliances such as the Novy hood, chosen because of its integration capacity.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe living room is also divided into an inner zone, furnished with Carl Hansen lounge chairs and table, and a semi-exterior zone in the gallery-garden, furnished with Butterfly chairs and Kettal table. All were delivered by Gunni Trentino and decorated with Serax and Materia Barcelona pieces.In the same way, the office space is divided into a desk area with a computer within the living room shelf system, and a movable desk with storage inside the vestibule area cabinetry.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe gallery, featuring double windows both to the exterior and the interior, is also an open use space that can be used in different ways. Two large facing custom built planters, in the same natural sand stone as the floor, contain a lush garden that can be taken care of at a distance thanks to the Gardena Smart watering technology, totally concealed inside the planters.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe apartment achieves maximum storage due to the large floor-to-ceiling cabinetry at the perimeter and in substitution of the partition walls. The oak wood cabinets alternate with white lacquer wall clads, that allow for a flush installation of the swinging doors or hide the sliding doors, and indeed separate the different ambients in a subtle way. Both materials, wood and lacquer, combine to perfection with the protected natural Capri sandstone by Levantina that reflects the natural light and adds a warm cream tone.Save this picture!Cortesía de YLAB ArquitectosThe project features minimalistic designed E22 electrical accessories by Gira that enable an easy control of the lighting system.Project gallerySee allShow lessThesis Works of Daniel Libeskind, Liz Diller and Others Exhibited at the Cooper UnionArchitecture NewsHills / Unit ArkitekturSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Carrer d’Argentona, 08024 Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Frogs also went on an 11-point scoring run in the second quarter against the Lady Bears, which is only the second time the Bears have allowed a run with a scoring differential of that size. Baylor held a slim 30-26 lead going into halftime, but the Frogs would come out of the half hungry for the lead.In the final four minutes of the third quarter, the Lady Bears went 0-4 from the free-throw line, and TCU closed out the quarter on a 5-0 run to take a 45-44 lead.Baylor separated themselves on an 8-0 run to open the fourth quarter. “The way the schedule is set up, you have to learn quick what you lost in that game. I think in that game we lose the fourth quarter,” senior guard Kianna Ray said. “We just kind of lost momentum, we lost energy, we lost focus. So, going into the next game, we are going to have a huge emphasis on the fourth quarter.”A three-pointer by Jaycee Bradley brought TCU within four points of the Lady Bears, but Baylor closed out the game.“Give TCU credit, those kids were fired up and they came ready to play,” Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey said.Ray finished the game with 16 points, which moves her to No. 19 on TCU’s all-time scoring chart.Guard Lauren Heard scored 11 points and has now put together double-digit scoring efforts in 14 consecutive games.Next, the Horned Frogs will face off against No. 25 West Virginia this at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.

Follow the news on China In a report titled “China’s Pursuit of a New World Media Order”, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) investigates Beijing’s strategy to control information beyond its borders, a project that poses a threat to press freedom throughout the world. China, ranked 177 out of 180 in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters READ THE REPORTHEREWithout Borders (RSF), is expanding its hold beyond its borders to impose its “ideologically correct” vocabulary, to deter any criticism of itself and to cover up the darker chapters in its history. Less well known than the Belt and Road Initiative, but just as ambitious, this project poses a threat to press freedom throughout the world.This is what RSF reveals in its investigative report entitled “China’s Pursuit of a New World Media Order”, available in French, English and Chinese versions on its website rsf.org. The NGO highlights the strategy deployed by the Chinese state to achieve its goals. These strategies include: modernizing its international TV broadcasting, buying extensive amounts of advertising in international media, infiltrating foreign media… but also employing blackmail, intimidation and harassment on a massive scale.”In the spirit of the Beijing regime, journalists are not intended to be a counter-power but rather to serve the propaganda of states,” says Christophe Deloire, Secretary General of RSF. “If democracies do not resist, Beijing will impose his view and his propaganda, which is a threat for journalism and democracy”.Training “critical thinking” in BeijingOver the past decade, China has invested massively in developing media capable of reaching an international public. And it has succeeded: state-owned CGTN broadcasts TV programmes in 140 countries and China Radio International broadcasts in 65 languages.The regime has managed to convince tens of thousands of journalists in emerging countries to go on all-expense-paid trips to Beijing to “train their critical mind” in exchange for favorable press coverage. As for the Chinese diaspora media, many of which used to be critical of the regime, almost all have been bought out and disseminated into the propaganda apparatus of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).Violence and intimidationBeijing is also exporting its censorship and surveillance tools, including the Baidu search engine and WeChat instant messaging platform, and encouraging authoritarian states to copy its repressive regulations, a particularly effective strategy in Southeast Asia.Beijing calls for intimidation and violence to silence dissidents, even in democratic nations. From freelance reporters to major media outlets, from publishing houses to social media platforms, no link in the news production chain is immune to the “invisible hand” of Beijing. Even Chinese ambassadors no longer hesitate to openly denigrate press articles that question the official narrative of China, and often in rather undiplomatic ways. Democracies are struggling to react in the face of these threats.
