Throwback: Tendai BEAST Mtawarira’s legendary moments in a Sharks shirt

first_imgThursday Mar 28, 2019 Throwback: Tendai BEAST Mtawarira’s legendary moments in a Sharks shirt Sharks prop Tendai Mtawarira is set to level the record for the most Super Rugby appearances for a South African player when his side host the Bulls this Saturday.ADVERTISEMENTThe 33-year-old has made 155 appearances for Durban-based side since making his debut over a decade ago. He is one behind former Cheetahs and Bulls hooker Adrian Strauss, and will level with him this weekend.Since making his debut for the Sharks, Mtawarira has established himself as one of the most respected players on the planet, universally known as ‘The Beast’.He has earned 107 caps for the Springboks to date, with the highlight of his career in a green jersey surely being the devastating performance he put in against Phil Vickery in the 2009 British and Irish Lions tour. Mtawarira dismantled the more experienced man in the scrum, and announced himself on the world stage.However, he has had some memorable appearances for the Sharks over his 155 Super Rugby matches, none more so that the remarkable feat of strength in 2012, when he prevented lock Anton Bresler from a serious injury after he fell backwards when being lifted by Mtawarira.Fortunately, he is not called The Beast for nothing, and he was able to prevent him from falling not once in that match, but twice.ADVERTISEMENTFeats like that are rarely seen, but bizarrely it happened again a week later, with the exact same two players. Bresler must be grateful that Mtawarira was his teammate.While the acrobatics with Bresler is what went viral at the time, it actually happened a year earlier too, when he saved Keegan Daniel.ADVERTISEMENTWhile all of this is just a sideshow for what he really contributes to the Sharks and the Springboks, he’s had a fantastic career and when he does break that record, he will be a more than worthy recipient of the honour.

The Docks Dombasles / Hamonic + Masson architects

first_imgArchDaily Projects Photographs:  Jean-Christophe Masson, Herve AbbadieText description provided by the architects. Hamonic et Masson’s mixed-use office and housing building is part of an initiative to preserve and reuse the industrial heritage of the southern quarters of Le Havre, France. Through its scale, rhythm, shape and materials, the project forms an integral part of a re-envisioned harbour landscape, creating the transition between a domestic scale and the greater harbour landscape.Save this picture!© Herve AbbadieRecommended ProductsDoorsJansenDoors – Janisol DoorHanging LampsAxolightWall Lights – FloatStoolsAndreu WorldTrenza – Outdoor BarstoolA 19th century brick warehouse, or avéole, was conserved and incorporated into the project to house the office space required in the programme. The warehouse’s silhouette and scale subsequently inspired the repetitive module that was used for the housing portion of the project. The use of modules allowed for a prefabricated construction system, both for the concrete structure and the metal façade. Save this picture!© Herve AbbadieThe southern, dockside, elevation comprises of a pattern of metal balustrades and sun-shading devices that refer to the character of the site: galvanised metal, grey fabric blinds that help enliven the façade and white fabric privacy screens.

Outdoor passageways and staircases provide access to the apartments while also providing a dynamic northern façade. Save this picture!© Herve AbbadieTo each apartment is given the same benefits – outdoor private space, direct southern light, sun shading systems and natural ventilation – despite the fact that the programme includes both social housing and high quality apartments for sale. The differences occur only within: owners buying off the plan were able to modify and adapt their apartments during construction, and the majority of private apartments have double height living rooms with mezzanines.

Large Home Tree / Ignatov Architects

first_imgArchDaily Bulgaria Save this picture!Courtesy of ignatov architects+ 43 Share Text description provided by the architects. Commissioned by the well-known art supporter and successful businessman George Bonin and developed by the New York based firm Ignatov Architects, the Home Tree concept is an attempt for defining contemporary, adaptable rural architecture. Its strategy is based on learning from existing trees on site recognizing their natural optimization for the given location and climate. The aim is to align architecture with nature and deliver site-conscious, clean, energy-independent and feasible buildings. In opposition to the Treehouse typology, which presents parasitic dwellings burdening existing trees, the Home Tree concept focuses on developing free-standing, tree-inspired architecture. Besides the usual residential program, each Home Tree house consists of three integral parts that parallel actual trees: Save this picture!Courtesy of ignatov architectsProductive interior garden (crown) Save this picture!Courtesy of ignatov architectsCentral cantilevered structure (trunk and branches) Save this picture!Courtesy of ignatov architectsGeothermal energy exchanger (roots) Save this picture!Courtesy of ignatov architectsSubparts and systems also work in line with the natural prototype: glazed facades and solar panels utilize sunlight, reversed roof channels rainwater for irrigation, rough multilayered veneers provide insulation and moisture barrier, multifunctional vertical core distributes communications and utilities.

Spiral House / Joeb Moore + Partners Architects

Situated along the Connecticut shoreline of Long Island Sound, the Spiral House seeks to engage, enhance and reflect the surrounding coastal climate and its atmospherics of light, air, water. Formally and spatially, the house is a direct and pragmatic response to the strict environmental (FEMA and flood elevations) and local zoning restrictions and regulations (height, building setbacks, FAR, footprint) imposed on the building and site (see sectional diagram). Save this picture!© Jeff Goldberg/ESTORecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsConceptually, the house is the resultant form and operation of an interface and tension between two systems of geometry, one projective (fixed) and the other, radial (dynamic). Through a overlapping system of spatial and geometric progression, growth, and interference the social-spatial roles of public and private, interior and exterior, house and landscape are intimately connected and entwined, and yet are also left curiously open-ended and indeterminate much like the water itself.” Overall, the house (and its underlying dual geometries) operate precisely and creatively within the found and prescribed social and environmental boundaries of the site to produce a dynamic, experience-oriented dwelling. Save this picture!© Jeff Goldberg/ESTOThe coastal landscape is one of mist, reflection, and indistinctness, sometimes fierce and turbulent, and sometimes, calm and gentle. Things appear to constantly change, fad or drift away. We sought material and formal operations that might mirror and even celebrate this atmospheric ontology of the sea and its operatic arrangements of light, air, and water. We selected cedar wood siding (to respond and innovate upon the cedar-wood shingle and clapboard houses in the surrounding neighborhood), large panel glass window/door systems to promote extraordinary views of Long Island Sound (35’ away), and concrete because if its durability and strength to resist the coastal New England storm surges over time. The contrast between the spiral wood structure, its vertical wood-fin skin, against the concrete plinth and ramp, and the 11’ tall transparent/reflective glass curtain wall system sandwiched between all combine to produce a rich and complex range of shifting perceptual effects that again mirror and re-present the house within the context of the coastal surroundings and atmosphere. Save this picture!© Jeff Goldberg/ESTOAn example of this strategy at the micro-tectonic level, where we blur the perceptual boundary between building and environment, is the vertical cedar batten/louver system designed for the skin of the wood structure of the building. A system of 3/4” x 3-1/2” vertical red-cedar wood fins with stainless steel clips and trim that emerged as a material/tectonic detail and formal/spatial device to unify the disparate parts and elevations of the building but also as a technique to accentuate and amplify the temporal, diaphanous, “moray” effects of sky, water, and building to produce both literal and phenomenological transparency (see photos). It is an extraordinary and constantly changing experience on the site, a spatial-temporal collide-a-scope that has its center in the house itself. Just as the collision of waves creates an interference pattern, one key node within the project interjects a disruption into the flow of the spiral—the interior bridge that links the two different floors heights upstairs. The relationship of the bridge to the interior stairway and exterior courtyard conveys the performative nature of the spiral as a vortex and the interface and tension between two systems of geometry, one projective + linear and the other, radial + dynamic.Save this picture!© Jeff Goldberg/ESTOProject gallerySee allShow lessAA Visiting School in IstanbulArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Area:  3900 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2009 CopyAbout this officeJoeb Moore + Partners ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 15, 2011Cite: “Spiral House / Joeb Moore + Partners Architects” 15 Feb 2011.

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction in Taipei, Taiwan, we attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to TaipeiCity instead.Save this picture!© Jeffrey ChengRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsIn response to the urban scale, a horizontal band in white crystallized glass panel clearly defines the residential and the commercial programs. The band then turns vertically to become an urban lighting wall that hopefully will redefine the boundary of Tien Mu area in both day and night. The elevation on the East side uses white cracked-ice glaze mosaic and black stone mosaic to form a modern representation of vertical village on an 80 meter long city wall. The building envelope with various protruding white frames becomes the in-between interface involves an individual with the city. The frames with depth not only provide the necessary sun screen, but the resulting visual artistry also evokes imagination. While the frames embrace and display urban life, they also keep private life away from environment with a proper yet ambiguous distance. On the West side, the service core is expressed by 6 vertical heavy walls with lanterns on top. They lit up at night to enrich the city skyline, and to provide guiding direction for the residents from Zhi Shan MRT station. Save this picture!© Jeffrey ChengProject gallerySee allShow lessWaterfront Kopaszi Dam / T2.a ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSense / Kazutoshi ImanagaArticlesProject locationAddress:111, Taiwan (ROC), Taipei City, Shilin District, Lane 154, Section 7, Zhōngshān North Rd, 6號3樓 Taipei Municipal Library Tien-Mu BranchLocation to be used only as a reference.

It is primarily a team-based, industry-facing program focused on project learning.Save this picture!© Derek LepperOriginally incubated in a retrofitted old Finning warehouse in 2007, the MDM Program had outgrown the space it previously occupied. The opportunity was to create a new state-of-the-art facility for the program with complementary uses that could enhance the success of the program. Students of the MDM Program are required to work long hours attending classes and participating in team projects on-site. Providing students with student housing on-site helps them meet the requirements of this demanding academic program. There is also a distinct social advantage to incorporating student housing with the academic activities of the MDM Program. Immersion in the learning environment fosters lasting relationships between students that will continue into their professional careers.Save this picture!© Derek LepperThis new building houses the MDM Program and provides accommodations for those enrolled in the program.Save this picture!© Derek LepperThe design of this building is a vessel for emerging technology set within an industrial context of the Great Northern Way Campus. Save this picture!© Derek LepperThe concept is inspired by two themes or dialogues – technology and regionalism. This building seeks to express the program through a weaving and folding gesture in the architecture. The program is stacked with academic / retail at the ground floor and three levels of student housing above. A singular ribbon, folding and bending, collects these uses to engage the street as the catalyst marker on the site.Save this picture!© Derek LepperThe wrapping gesture is directional to reflect the orientation of the student housing and to minimize solar heat gain on the east and west elevations. The folds cascade down the facade opening itself and presenting the lobby entry at the west corner of the building. The exterior wrap symbolizes industry and is expressed in the metal; the interior wrap symbolizes regionalism and is expressed in the use of wood.Save this picture!© Derek LepperTo create presence within this modest footprint, the building massing is created from three architectural elements: the academic use, the student housing use, and the ribbon expression, joining the program elements. The massing is expressed in a 1-to-3 proportion, creating a landscape roof on the north side of the building. The individual student housing units are expressed through the punched windows, while the ground floor academic space is expressed as a continuous full-height glazing.Save this picture!Courtesy of Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessBuilding Trust International Open International Design CompetitionArticlesKeelung Harbor Competition Entry / PAR + SESArticles Share 2012 Save this picture!© Derek Lepper+ 20 Share Area:  49 ft² Area:  49 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Canada Centre for Digital Media / Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCentre for Digital Media / Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership Architects Year:  Projects Year:  2012 Architects: Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/287057/centre-for-digital-media-musson-cattell-mackey-partnership-architects Clipboard Photographs CopyHouses, Dorms•Vancouver, Canada ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/287057/centre-for-digital-media-musson-cattell-mackey-partnership-architects Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeMusson Cattell Mackey Partnership Architects OfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEducational ArchitectureOther facilitiesDormsVancouverEducationalCanadaPublished on October 30, 2012Cite: “Centre for Digital Media / Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership Architects ” 30 Oct 2012.

The house is an attempt to blur the boundaries between exterior and the interior of an urban house. The concept of the house is an illustration of a metamorphosis of eastern spatial interiors and western aesthetics. It was designed for two brothers, on two separate levels yet connected without exposing oneself to the harsh weather conditions. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe residence utilizes the concept of two cross axes- a vertical axis through the plan which is the central circulation axis for the ground level and it links the house visually from the front to the rear boundary wall and a horizontal axis which connects the two landscaped courtyards creating a vision across the width of the plot. It is at one end of this horizontal axis that the main entry of the house is positioned. The individual enters on the horizontal axis and then is released onto the vertical axis. It was the client’s desire to have a luxurious home; thus, it was a concern to expand the constraints of a small plot and make the site and consequently the house appear larger. Therefore, the cross axes play an integral role in achieving the same. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe main staircase upto the first and the second floor is placed right next to the main entrance so that it lends the required privacy to the residents of the ground floor. At the very same time, the visual connection of the staircase is retained with the house on both levels as it looks on the courtyard next to the main entrance of the house, with long vertical glazing running along the staircase. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAn earthen palette of materials has been selected to allow for the emphasis of natural elements in the house. Rough textures of stone and cobbles have been used in most landscape areas including the central and the rear courts. Extensive use of wood allowed for the necessary warmth in the interiors.

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiWe were approached for this house by clients who knew exactly where they wanted which rooms, as ‘vaastu/feng shui’ dictated…they were looking for an architect who would string these spaces together as they desired. This was part of a gated development where every villa developed by the builder was similar and had colonial references, but on the client’s special request to bring in their own architect, the builder relented, on condition that the house be a simple white straight lined structure on the outside. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiThe house has at its heart a double height informal space that the client was keen to use as a lounge that allowed direct visual access to all areas of the house. The rooms are loosely tied around this central core. As a result of the rooms surrounding this central space, getting natural light was a challenge and this was achieved by creating a series of little skylights and clerestory openings that suffuse the central space with light. A double height screen in slatted wood, suspended from the ceiling and ending short of the floor, separates the entrance lobby from the lounge, and screens off movement on the first floor bridge that leads to the bedrooms. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiThe house is built on a corner plot and nestles within a verdant green zone, offering enough privacy to the owners .Its planned in a way that all public spaces are on the ground level and the private ones on the upper level. A master suite, a guest bedroom, and a cluster of two kid’s bedrooms joined by a central play area define the upper floor. The lower floor houses the living and dinning rooms, the kitchen, and a bedroom suite, in addition to the central lounge. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiOwing to the developers request to keep the house simple on the outside, it was conceived as an upper white box housing the bedrooms, floating over a transparent glass base (containing the public areas). Large cantilevers suspend most parts of the upper floor over the glass box below creating a sense of levity and weightlessness. Glass enclosures along all the periphery walls on the lower floor ensure a blurring of the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and allow for the decks surrounding the house to be used while entertaining. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiThe clients request for a pool that could be cordoned off as an indoor space (to provide privacy from the staff in the house) was respected by locating it just below the overhang of the daughter’s suite above. A series of slender concrete columns separate it from the living space, while a double height shaft rising above the pool draws light from the skylight above, and makes a visual connect with the daughter’s bedroom above. Openable sliding glazing all around the pool decking allow for it to be fully opened up when desired. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rajiv SainiThe underside of all cantilevered slabs was left exposed in concrete, and the finishes for the interiors were selected with the intent of creating a tension between materials, to juxtapose the rough with the smooth- the exposed concrete ceiling, timber and copper against the smooth surfaces of grey William marble, terrazzo and silks.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessArtist Antonio Pio Saracino & Salt ‘N Pepa to Unveil Arches of Hope InstallationArticlesBANKMED Headquarters Winning Proposal / John Robertson ArchitectsArticles Sharecenter_img “COPY” “COPY” Year:  2008 Houses ArchDaily CopyHouses•Mumbai, India Area:  12 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more
