Ensanche 21 – Zabalgunea, a municipal town planning company of the Vitoria-Gasteiz Council, has commissioned, after winning the open tender, the construction of 104 council flats in Sector 1 Borinbizkarra of Zabalgana to the real estate developer ARALAN, their architectonic proposal being from ACXT-IDOM Group. The criteria used in the tender were the urban, architectonic, functional and aesthetic values of the proposal.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizLocated in a rectangular plot, the morphology of the building is determined by the Community Development Plan which defines three longitudinal volumes from North to South, 9 stories high where they meet the road and 6 stories high in the remaining two thirds of its development. The blocks are linked by an element on the ground floor, from East to West where it meets the road.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizAll houses are intended to have around 90 m2 of carpet area and three bedrooms. The standard block of flats has three staircase and lift couplings that grant access to two flats per landing, thus allowing all flats to have a double orientation. Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe house tries to make the most of the double North-South orientation through the open-plan kitchen, which makes up a single longitudinal room, from one end to the other, around which all other rooms are located. This space is enclosed by two great openings on each end, topped off by a balcony in the living-room area. There is hardly any circulation area, making the most of the area that regulations allow for public areas.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThis is the fourth council housing project developed by ACXT-IDOM Group in Vitoria-Gasteiz, counting a total of 497 homes, after the two which are already built and a planned third one for VISESA.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Swiss Pavilion / Le CorbusierArchitecture ClassicsHerzog & de Meuron Breaks Ground on Public “Bathing Lake” in RiehenArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Vitoria-Gasteiz, SpainView location on google mapsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Evolution at the Edge

first_imgAt Dell Technologies World this year, customers and journalists were curious about trends I am seeing in the marketplace and predictions for the future. I shared my views on the impact of 5G , how AI and IoT are continuing to intersect, and the need for businesses to have consistent, flexible infrastructure to quickly adapt. I also emphasized that the foundation of all these transformations is the shift to edge computing—and it’s our OEM & IoT customers across all industries who are leading this evolution.Location, location, locationAt this point, I should clarify what I mean by the edge. I’m talking about data being processed close to where it’s created, versus the traditional centrally-located data center. I like to think of the difference between the data center and the edge as the difference between living out in the suburbs and living in the city—where all the action is. Right now, about 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. However, by 2023, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. That’s a dramatic shift by any definition.Three whysSo, why is this happening? Three reasons. First, according to the latest research, the number of connected devices is expected to reach 125 billion by 2030, which will put about 15 connected devices into the hands of every consumer. It simply doesn’t make sense to move all that data to a traditional data center—or even to the cloud.The second reason is cost. It’s naturally more cost-effective to process at least some of the data at the edge. And third, it’s all about speed. Many use cases just cannot accept the latency involved in sending data over a network, processing it and returning a response. Autonomous vehicles and video surveillance are great examples, where even a few seconds delay could mean the difference between an expected outcome and a catastrophic event.Edge computing examplesAnd what kind of compute exists at the edge? Well, it helps me to visualize the edge as a spectrum. On the right end–what I call the far edge–is where data is generated. Picture millions of connected devices generating a constant stream of data for performance monitoring or end user access. One example is a fluid management system, where valves need to be automatically opened or closed, based on threshold triggers being monitored. If this is something that interests you (using IoT data to help customers better manage and troubleshoot control valves), I recommend looking into our joint solution with Emerson.Or, consider how the frequency of fridge doors opening in the chilled food section of a supermarket affects the fridge’s temperature levels, and ultimately the food. It would be crazy to send to the cloud such a massive amount of data simply indicating the binary safe/unsafe temperature status—the store manager only needs to know when the temperature is unsafe. So, the edge is the obvious choice to aggregate and analyze this kind of data. In fact, we’ve worked with a major supermarket retailer to implement refrigeration monitoring and predictive maintenance at their edge. Today, their cooling units are serviced at the appropriate time, and they’re saving millions of dollars in rotten food. If you’re interested in using data to help avoid food waste, check out our joint solution with IMS Evolve.Application-driven solutionsOf course, in the vast majority of cases, the application determines the solution. For example, speed in surveillance systems is critical, when you’re trying to find a lost child in a mall or identify and stop someone that is a known security threat from entering a football stadium. The last thing you want at the crucial moment is for a cloud environment to tell you that it’s busy searching.Thanks to the advent of 5G, carriers are addressing the need for higher data traffic performance by placing servers at the base of cell towers instead of at a regional data center. These are all examples where configuration capability, great graphics and high processing performance come into play. And this brings me to another interesting point. When edge computing started, dedicated gateways were the focus. While still important, that definition has expanded to include servers, workstations, ruggedized laptops and embedded PCs.The micro data centerAnother category of edge compute is what Gartner calls the Micro-Data Center. Many of the attributes of a traditional data center come into play here, such as the need for high reliability, ability to scale the compute as needed, and high levels of management. Conditions that don’t typically demand ruggedized products, but where space limitations are likely.In these scenarios, customers typically consider virtualized solutions. Remote oil rigs, warehouse distribution centers and shipping hubs are great examples. Just think about the speed of packages flying down a conveyer belt at a distribution center, being routed to the right loading area while the data is being logged in real time for tracking. Batch files are then sent back to a central data center for global tracking, billing, and record keeping. In effect, you have a network of micro data centers at the edge, aggregating and analyzing data, while feeding the most relevant information into a larger regional center.Looking aheadIn addition to all the practical benefits (such as faster speed, and lower cost), the edge is also driving fresh innovation. After all, the ability to glean immediate insights, experiment, respond in real time and deliver services on-demand are all important criteria in our ever-changing world. In my view, this dynamic will only accelerate with the advent of 5G. By increasing the speed of data analysis, 5G will inevitably increase edge adoption while, on the other hand, businesses using edge computing will experience the full benefit of 5G networks. Over time, I believe that this combination will inspire a slew of new and exciting applications for both the business and consumer markets.Did you know that Dell Technologies offers a differentiated portfolio that is delivering hardware and software solutions from the edge, to the core, to the cloud?

Calls for Labor to scrap ‘jobkiller’ property taxes it has on the cards

first_imgProperty holdings over $10m face a rise in tax as well as foreign buyers. Picture: AAP Image/Dave Hunt.CONGRATULATIONS are flowing in after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk re-won state government — but property experts warn this also means two new big “jobkiller” property taxes could now go ahead. While the Property Council of Australia welcomed the end of a fortnight of uncertainty post-election, its Queensland executive director, Chris Mountford, also warned that two new property tax measures that the Labor government has planned could kill jobs.“While the result is now clear, uncertainty will remain for Queensland’s property industry which faces the prospect of two big new taxes revealed in Labor’s costing documents on the eve of the election,” he said. “These tax proposals are short on detail, but long on risk to our state’s economy. Put simply, these taxes — if implemented — would be job-killers.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus22 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market22 hours agoQueensland Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk. Picture: AAP Image/Bradley Kanaris.The Labor Party proposals included raising the land tax rate by 25 per cent for holdings ofmore than $10m and raising the foreign investor tax from 3 per cent to 7 per cent.Mr Mountford warned the measure could have a devastating effect on business rents across Queensland.“A tax on the land that a business is operating is inevitably a tax on that business, and these proposals will have a devastating flow on effect for business rents across Queensland.”“Taxes on business and investment are ultimately taxes that will be borne by Queenslanders.”Mr Mountford said the Property Council was highly supportive of the Government’s Cross River Rail project and Labor’s proposed extension of the First Home Buyers’ Grant at the current rate.last_img read more

Apartment prices are on the rise in South Townsville

first_imgPeople are now paying a median of $375,000 for a unit in South Townsville. More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020The suburb combines the best of inner city living and historic significance, and is in walking distance to Townsville’s leading dining district, Palmer Street. Ray White agent Nicole Plozza, who is currently marketing an apartment on Dibbs Street in South Townsville, said the lack of stock on the market could be a contributing factor to the price increase. This one-bedroom unit at 911/2 Dibbs Street in South Townsville is on the market for $199,000.Apartment prices in South Townsville are rising, with units in the suburb now the most expensive in the region. In the year leading up to March this year, the price for a unit in the area has increased 25.2 per cent.READ MORE Where people are paying the most mortgage in North QLD “We’ve also just had all the Adani news and that sort of stuff so we’re starting to see investors come back into the market, which is the big change.”Apartments in Townsville City are the second most expensive, but are selling for a median of $300,000 which is the cheapest they’ve been in more than a decade. Following that is Oonoonba and then North Ward, which is highly sought after by buyers, with units selling after an average of 55 days on the market. Units in Douglas, Nelly Bay and West End are all selling at between $200,000 and $250,000. “I’m not seeing as much stock in apartments coming onto the market in that area,” Ms Plozza said.“I think that’s purely because people have been waiting so long for the market to change and now, with the stadium so close to being finished, they probably know they’ll be getting a better premium price once that’s happened. center_img READ MORE The hardest place to sell a house in QLDlast_img read more

Soldier walking across Iowa to call attention to mental health

first_imgA soldier from the 185th Air National Guard in Sioux City is walking across Iowa from border to border to raise awareness about mental health. Technical Sergeant Jeff Campbell is on a 20 day, 389 mile journey that started in Clinton and will end back in Sioux City.“Twenty days? Nothing compared to someone who is suffering with depression for six months, someone who is legitimately struggling with a marriage,” Campbell says. “…We need to teach people that these bubbles of time are not permanent. You only do that by talking, by relating, by sitting down, having conversations.” Campbell works as what’s called a “Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape” specialist for the 185th. He says issues concerning mental health affect everyone, plus mental health is a particular concern during these times of social distancing and isolation because of Covid-19.I’ve had a lot of people stop and talk to me about what I’m doing,” Campbell says. “I had a lady open up to me about a son that had died because of suicide and just the other day I walked with a guy who was Vietnam vet for five miles and he was just talking about his struggles.” Campbell says mental health is a particular concern during these times of social distancing and isolation because of Covid-19. And he says it’s an issue in rural as well as urban Iowa.“It’s actually eye-opening talking to just different farmers and stuff and then just how they struggle in their suicide rate among their own community. You can’t escape it,” Campbell says. “It doesn’t matter where you re in the world, like, if you’re struggling mentally you have to be able to step outside of that…and be able to say: ‘Hey, this isn’t going to be forever.’” According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 600-thousand Iowans live with some form of mental illness.last_img read more
