It is ideally situated, bordered by two railway lines (the RER B regional commuter train service to the south and the high speed railway line to the west), and offers stunning views across Greater Paris. The empty space left by the railway lines means the landscape can be enjoyed uninterrupted, from the outermost limits of Seine- Saint-Denis to La Défense, via the heights of Montmartre and the city’s historic quarters.Save this picture!© 11h45The project occupies a corner plot that seals off the sequence of existing buildings and defines the central area of the development. Two different types of building have therefore been designed: a 6-storey apartment block in the corner and a group of individual houses in the centre.Save this picture!© Stephan LucasThe project forms a link between the historic city and the development taking place in the Stade de France area, and aims to make the most of the site in order to create housing of the highest quality. The notions of comfort and identity, recurrent themes for the agency, are at the heart of both the project’s concept and the buildings themselves.Save this picture!© 11h45The project The south façade of the apartment block (54 homes) comprises a variety of sizes, shapes and depths: a series of small units of different textures and colours that can be perceived in a number of different ways. The outdoor areas, one for each home, are treated as entirely separate rooms, each with a system of concealable glass and aluminium panels that play a role in both temperature regulation and sound proofing. This interface with the outdoors also offers superb views across the surrounding landscape. The inner façade is more uniform, with the separate apartments distinguished only by windows of slightly varying size.Save this picture!© Stephan LucasThe 16 houses come in a variety of configurations, both adjoining and detached, in a reimagining of the old industrial buildings that were previously located on the site. They are either oriented east-west or offer views on three sides, and have well-proportioned gardens. Depending on their size (4 to 6 rooms, plus kitchen and bathroom), some of the houses have double-height rooms that enhance the sense of homeliness by linking all the rooms together.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe variety of shapes and sizes continues outdoors, with a network of pathways criss-crossing the plot and bordering the gardens, which are terraced in the communal area and laid out flat for the houses (the underground car park is limited to the apartment block).Save this picture!© Stephan LucasThe buildings are partially constructed from thermal insulating concrete and meet the French BBC low-energy standard. Rather than through the use of technical equipment, comfort has been created by focusing on orientation and passive features, such as shutters that project out from the façade when opened to create a shaded area. This attention to detail is also reflected in the choice of materials, based on a rich yet complementary palette of grey and white coatings, expanded metal, and terracotta in three different colours, used to create a unique, shaded design, brick by brick, that gives the façades their dynamic appearance.Project gallerySee allShow lessMontfullà House / Hidalgo HartmannSelected ProjectsHerzog & de Meuron to Design the National Library of IsraelArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Rue du Landy, Saint-Denis, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Fifty-three journalists summonsed in move condemned as intimidatory by Reporters Without Borders

Several of them asked to be questioned as accused rather than witnesses, which gives them the right to remain silent about their sources throughout the investigation. If they are found guilty they risk a jail term of up to two years.The trial of seven people accused of sexual abuse of children will be held behind closed doors. Some 100 witnesses are expected to give evidence. Political and media figures are among those charged.The Casa Pia case centres on an institution for orphaned or deprived children. The story was broken in 2002 by the weekly Expresso, which revealed that a driver for Casa Pia had been procuring the children for paedophiles for 20 years.The case, implicating important political personalities, has attracted unprecedented media coverage and fresh revelations, some accusing political leaders, crop up regularly in the press.read in Portuguese RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive News Organisation Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Reporters Without Borders has condemned as an “attempt at intimidation and incitement to self-censorship” the summonsing of 53 journalists by the Lisbon public prosecutor’s office for “violating legal confidentiality rules” in the Casa Pia child sex abuse trial that opens on 25 November.

It was the largest number of new infections reported in a single day since March 3, when 32 cases of the virus were detected.But the number of COVID-19 patients at Huntington Hospital continues its steady plummet, reaching 18 on Thursday, officials said. Five of the patients were being treated in intensive care units.City data showed 43,877 Pasadenans, or 37.2% of the population over 16 years old, had received at least one vaccine dose, and 25,056 more were listed as fully vaccinated.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced 933 new infections and 88 additional deaths, raising the county’s pandemic totals to 1,212,586 known infections and 22,664 fatalities.The daily test positivity rate for Los Angeles County was recorded at 1.8%, lower than the statewide rate of 2%, according to public health records.Total COVID-19 hospitalizations in the county numbered 861, with 26% of the patients being treated in ICUs, according to county officials.With the region now operating under loosened restrictions after entering the state’s “red” tier on Monday, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer urged continued vigilance against the virus.“The success of the county’s recovery and the safety of at-risk residents and workers depends on businesses and residents closely following the rules. If our COVID-19 transmission decreases, lives are saved, and we will be allowed to continue to open more businesses and ease activity-specific restrictions in the future,” she said.“We all experienced what happens when public health safety measures are not followed closely,” Ferrer continued. “We have to avoid increases that can easily lead to more people suffering and take us backward on our recovery journey. As more people are vaccinated, universal cooperation with safety measures is what will keep us moving forward with our recovery journey.”At the state level, the California Department of Public Health reported 3,038 new infections and 2018 new deaths on Thursday, bringing the state’s totals to 3,535,534 COVID-19 cases and 55,795 deaths.As of Thursday, L.A.
