The unique domaine La Cabotte is located on a hillside surrounded by vineyards and woods looking at the Mont Ventoux appearing on the horizon. The domaine is strongly involved in the respectfull terroir farming and wishes to reunite in one same place three functions: a place to welcome visitors with a space dedicated to wine-tasting, an office and washrooms for the wine growers.Save this picture!© Julien AttardThe office decided to take into account two elements to best respond to the above programme : the presence of the landscape and an evocation of the local vernacular architecture.Save this picture!© Julien AttardThe project is based on a star-plan with three branches, each one corresponding to one of the functions listed above. The structure and the wooden envelope include the furniture elements for the wine-tasting space and the office. This gives a real thickness to the walls and recalls the original constructive principles of the “cabotte”. The unusual plan allows for a central area or core from which the office suggested, thanks to wide openings, a double orientation onto the landscape. These openings frame and dramatize the important elements of the geography (vineyards, Mont Ventoux etc.).Save this picture!Floor PlanThe pleasure of the palet is thus associated to the surrounding landscape. From the outside, the volume has a traditional double-sloping roof for each branch of the building. There is a contemporary touch in the play between the line of the roof and the line of the wall which don’t always overlap in the same place.Save this picture!© Julien AttardThere is a palpable tension between the volumes and the landscape. The « cabotte » is simply resting there amongst the vines….The addition of “feet” to two of the three volumes corrects the slight slope of the ground.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Funabashi / Koji Hatano ArchitectsSelected ProjectsVideo: Tamedia New Office Building / Shigeru Ban ArchitectsVideos Share La Cabotte / H20 ArchitectesSave this projectSaveLa Cabotte / H20 ArchitectesSave this picture!© Julien AttardHouses•Bollène, France Cabinet Virtz ArchDaily “COPY” Area:  58 m² Area:  58 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2013 + 21 Share Photographs France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Projects Houses photographs:  Julien AttardPhotographs:  Julien Attard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeh20 architectesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBollèneHousesFrancePublished on June 11, 2014Cite: “La Cabotte / H20 Architectes” 11 Jun 2014.

Justice for Alfred Wright! Stop racist lynchings!

first_imgSupporters, including Alfred’s mother Rosalind Wright, demand justicefor Alfred Wright, Houston, Texas.
WW photo: Gloria RubacAfter the dragging death of African-American James Byrd Jr. in 1998, three white supremacists were convicted of one of the most heinous racist murders in the U.S. since 14-year-old Emmett Till was murdered in Mississippi. Just as people learned about Money, Miss., in 1955, the East Texas town of Jasper was known around the world in 1998.East Texas, long known for its racism and active Ku Klux Klan terrorism, has made headlines again. A young Black physical therapist named Alfred Wright called his spouse on Nov. 7 to say his truck had broken down. The 27-year-old had recently begun doing home visits in Jasper and neighboring counties. When his family went to pick him up in Hemphill, an hour from Jasper, he had vanished.The next day his scrubs and watch were found on a ranch near where his truck had broken down. The Sabine County sheriff, police and firefighters began searching for Wright, but after only four days they said they’d run out of funds and called off the search.Alfred Wright with his two children.Wright’s family and friends began their own search and found him 19 days later. His mutilated body was on the same land that had supposedly been carefully searched. Left wearing only his boxer briefs, Wright’s left ear had been cut off and his eyes gouged out. Three front teeth and his tongue were missing, and his throat was slit. Yet the medical examiner ruled his death an accident due to drug overdose.Wright’s father, the Rev. Douglas Wright, grew up in Mississippi. After three Civil Rights workers were murdered on their way to his father’s church in Philadelphia, Miss., in 1964, their deaths were ruled accidental until a second autopsy was done. So the Rev. Wright had an independent autopsy done in Houston. According to CNN, “Dr. Lee Ann Grossberg … determined there was a ‘high likelihood of homicidal violence.’” (Feb. 16)Officials from Sabine County have refused to release their autopsy report while there is an ongoing investigation. They say Wright’s body was riddled with drugs, causing his death. His spouse, family and friends say Wright, a fitness enthusiast, never used illegal drugs.The Wright family, community members and other supporters have held several events, including prayer groups and rallies.The March 25 Texas Observer reported: “The Bernsen Law Firm in Beaumont — which was handling civil rights suits on behalf of Jasper’s fired black police chief and [a] woman beaten by Jasper police — took on the Wrights’ cause as well, and hosted a December press conference in Beaumont. … On a map, attorney Ryan MacLeod pointed out where Alfred’s body had been found and just how close it had been to the original search, wondering how so many law enforcement officers could have missed it.”In February, the U.S. Department of Justice was asked to investigate. On Feb. 15, the New Black Panther Party from Houston held an armed “Justice for Alfred Wright” protest through downtown Hemphill, raising a lot of media attention.No justice! No peace!The Wright family came to Houston in March 20 for a press conference outside the Texas Department of Public Safety, demanding a meeting with the DPS head. Alfred’s mother, Rosalind Wright, said that her family will not give up until they find the killers.Later that evening, there was a public forum with Rosalind Wright and Houston activists as well as a conference call with the families of Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and other victims of racist violence. Plans were made to hold a protest outside the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., in August and to take all these cases to the United Nations in November.On April 7, a demonstration was held in front of the Texas Rangers’ office in Jasper. The Wright family and Jasper community members were joined by New Black Panther Party activists from Houston, Dallas and Newark, N.J.; the National Black United Front; the Nation of Islam Mosque 45 in Houston; and the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement.Tempers flared as activists tried to enter the building to speak with Ranger Danny Young, who was assigned to the Wright case. More than 30 Texas DPS troopers forced the militant crowd back, pushing and shoving until an 84-year-old woman, Jean Dember of the NBUF, was knocked to the ground.Later the group went to the Wright family church in Jasper for a community meeting, lunch and speak-out. Several of Alfred Wright’s lifelong friends talked about how their lives have been affected by his death.Alfred’s sister, high school English teacher Cassila Wright, said the family is devastated but undaunted. “We have to be wise in strategy. Our objective is to obtain justice for my brother, by any means necessary. This is a social and economic war against us. We must be relentless. The wheels of justice turn slowly but don’t stop, don’t quit. This is not the end but the beginnings of a revolution.”Pastor Celmentine King of Jasper told the gathering, “When my brother was lynched in Jasper, we never found out who did it. This time we must!” She said her brother, who had a white girlfriend, was castrated, hung and his body mutilated.“Wake up!” admonished Rosalind Wright. “We want justice. This government owes us justice!” Minister Robert Muhammad from Houston said, “It doesn’t matter if a white politician or a Black politician is in power. Our problems are systemic.”One of the men who found Wright’s body was Yahtorah Kupenda, who noted that the skeletons of a Black mother and her son were found three years after they disappeared in Jasper. The medical examiner said the mother had had a heart attack. “We are dealing with demons and they cover up their evil deeds. This struggle is far from over,” he said.Leaving Jasper, this reporter noticed a huge Confederate flag flying high in front of a home on the main highway. There is no doubt that a united struggle is needed to eradicate the racism of East Texas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Hurricane of colonialism ravages Puerto Rico

first_imgWhen a hurricane smashes into an island, it destroys everything in its path and carries the remains out to sea. But hurricane damage is trivial compared to the devastation caused by colonialism. In early April, the white supremacist commander-in-chief sought to deny Puerto Rico aid money for the continued rebuilding process after Hurricane Maria. He claimed that the U.S. had already given Puerto Rico more than its fair share. The reality is that from sugar cane monopolies in 1898 to bond market inflation schemes in 2006, the U.S. has done nothing but take. Hurricane Maria was nothing more than a hammer with which the Yankee empire could further shatter its Caribbean piggy bank. Puerto Rico has been a target of wealth extraction and a vehicle for military expansion ever since the U.S. took control of the colony from Spain in 1898. Wall Street wasted no time commandeering the economy of Puerto Rico to enrich U.S. agribusiness. And Puerto Rico became an important staging point for invasions and coups that the U.S. launched against other Latin American nations. More recently, U.S. banks descended on the island to take advantage of its lax regulations, which had been imposed by the U.S. Congress. Banks like UBS have pushed the Puerto Rican government into borrowing billions of dollars to cover basic expenses. The big banks know that, unlike other U.S. jurisdictions, federal law requires Puerto Rico to pay back its debt before covering any other obligations. Further, neither the island nor its public corporations can file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy. (Chapter 9 involves the restructuring of municipal debt, such as Detroit filed in 2013.) U.S. rule puts banks before peopleWith borrowing and lending driven out of control, collapse was inevitable. But without the ability to declare bankruptcy, Puerto Rico has been strong-armed into depriving its citizens in order to repay the banks. Like any imperial power, the U.S. left this work to unelected viceroys — a seven-member board appointed under the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA). Puerto Rican citizens have absolutely no say over who sits on this board, and only a single seat must be filled by someone who actually lives on the island. In spite of this incredibly undemocratic process, PROMESA board members have been empowered to lower Puerto Rico’s minimum wage, close nearly 200 public schools and slash funding for its public university. PROMESA is nothing more than a tool for colonial wealth extraction.In this light, it’s clear that Hurricane Maria only adds to the tragedy. More than 3,000 people died due to the hurricane and the subsequent damage to infrastructure, but the reaction from Puerto Rico’s imperial masters was heartless. A recent study showed that in the first nine days after hurricanes Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida, Texas residents received $141 million and Florida residents received $100 million. How much aid money did Puerto Rico receive during the crucial nine days following Hurricane Maria’s landfall? A paltry $6 million. Aid was, and still is, slow in coming to the island. For people of color living in an overseas colony, compassion, like clean water, is in short supply.White nationalism out in open under TrumpAnd there is no reason to expect compassion from the current occupant of the White House. President Donald Trump is an open white nationalist who despises people of color. Even though Puerto Ricans have received aid much more slowly than other disaster victims, Trump told Republican lawmakers in March that Puerto Rico had received too much aid. This is unsurprising from a man who would tear Latinx children from the arms of their mothers and fathers and cage them beneath a filthy overpass. No amount of pain and suffering is enough when the victims are people of color and the perpetrators are white nationalists. As is the case with so much of U.S. policy in the last two years, Trump reveals the white supremacist heart beating beneath the chest of U.S. imperialism. What’s happening to Puerto Rico now is but an extension of what has been done for the last 100 years.Racists like Trump have always portrayed Puerto Rico as a welfare state that squanders its resources and survives off the generous largesse of the U.S. government. This is, and has always been, imperialist and paternalistic nonsense. The “white man’s burden” is a total lie. In reality, Wall Street has extracted billions of dollars from Puerto Rico through predatory lending; the fruits of Puerto Rican agriculture have enriched U.S. corporations; and every year, Puerto Ricans pump millions of dollars into the U.S. economy because they are forced by law to import nearly all their goods from the states — at a 20 percent markup, no less. In truth, it is the U.S., like any empire, which parasitically feeds off its colonial victims. The money that Puerto Rico requires to rebuild its infrastructure — an estimated $90 billion — pales in comparison to the wealth that the U.S. has drained from the labor and resources of the Puerto Rican people. But resistance among Puerto Rican activists to these colonial and neoliberal policies is on the rise, and the strength of the U.S. empire is on the decline. As the power of the people grows and the strength of their oppressors begins to fade, Puerto Ricans may be the ones who cut off the money tap.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
