The Concerto House is located not far from the center of Saigon, in a quiet suburb where the roads become rough and less busy. The tropical climate is accentuated as the din of the city diminishes behind, replaced by another familiar hum, that of family life. Winding through a cluster of small roads of large traditional houses, the alluring form of the house emerges alone amongst the rest. Upon walking up to the gate of this unique structure, it is clear that there may be no other similar in Saigon or even all of Vietnam. Its striking angles and monochromatic finish speak to the onlooker of grandeur and abstract minimalism. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanA concept of harmony has been made manifest here through the inter-relationship of man, nature, and design. As we initially enter the garden, which circles the main façade of the property, the house appears to desire a connection with the water element due firstly to its direct touch with the outdoor swimming pool, which stretches the wingspan of its entirety. Thereafter the visitor can view the canal closely outside of its rear fence, and the Saigon River beyond. The durable concrete finish was chosen to adapt to the tropical climate of Saigon with temperatures often reaching high thirties and vast levels of rain.Save this picture!© Anh Viet NguyenSave this picture!Section 1Save this picture!© Anh Viet NguyenThe two main structures extend volumetrically beyond the front of the first level in order to provide adequate protection for the pool and patio areas. Perhaps some kind of eccentric parties had inspired the design of this pool, as the sliding doors of both the living room and kitchen open directly onto it, meaning that one step outside would meet with a wet landing. Both the private bar and music/cinema room at the basement level possess windows viewing into the side of the pool, just like an aquarium, so that we can see swimmers akin to dolphins or mermaids in a tank.Save this picture!© Anh Viet NguyenTwo-thirds of the swimming pool are under cover of the 2nd level of the two main buildings, which are conjoined in the center by a central staircase. The basement boasts view to a central courtyard with an impressive tree planted in the center, bringing the garden into the building itself. This is where we really can feel a symbiosis between ourselves, nature, and architecture. The house was designed with close consideration to the owner’s love for music; even the overall form of the structure loosely mimics that of an acoustically-designed modern concert hall. The open-planned first level allows for music to hum throughout the space, whether the dweller is playing piano or relaxing and listening.Save this picture!© Anh Viet NguyenPerhaps the most impressive stance of the whole structure is from the roof level, where one can see Saigon in all directions. One of the most dramatic views here is to gaze vertically down at the basement tree below. Not vertigo-friendly! From this height, it almost appears small in relation to its actuality. The Concerto House could mark a turning point in the contemporary residential architecture of Vietnam. Being the first of its kind in the country, it remains to be seen whether we see such similar styles to emerge in the coming years.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Masonry House / stpmjSelected ProjectsSeaside Wall House / KHY architectsSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Donggia, Eurowindow, IMEX PRODUCTS, Vinastone Projects Architects: Baumschlager Eberle Architekten Area Area of this architecture project Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Anh Viet Nguyen+ 54 Share Photographs:  Anh Viet Nguyen Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2016 Concerto House / Baumschlager Eberle Architekten CopyAbout this officeBaumschlager Eberle ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHo Chi Minh CityVietnamPublished on October 19, 2017Cite: “Concerto House / Baumschlager Eberle Architekten” 18 Oct 2017.

Manuel Pellegrini fears Manchester City’s Samir Nasri could miss five months


first_img Pellegrini said: “We don’t have Samir Nasri for four or five months. He has a tendon injury in his right leg so now he must have surgery because it’s an important (serious) injury.” Spain playmaker Silva remains on the sidelines with the ankle injury suffered while on international duty in October. Pellegrini has claimed on a number of occasions during his lay-off that he is close to a comeback, but he is still frustratingly short of fitness. Pellegrini said: “It’s a long injury because it’s not a muscle injury. It’s an ankle and for different reasons he can’t be 100 per cent fit. “If a player is not comfortable I think that he can’t play. I hope it’s the same as with Vincent, that next week he can be okay.” Influential captain and defender Kompany is out with another calf injury just over a month after returning from a five-game lay-off – and becoming the subject of a club-versus-country row over his fitness – with a similar problem. His latest calf injury is his 11th such problem since the start of the 2011-12 season, while there have also been absences for groin and hamstring problems in that time. Pellegrini said: “The calf is such a difficult muscle you never know how much (time) he needs but I hope that by next week he will be okay.” The good news for City this weekend is the return of leading striker Sergio Aguero, who has recovered from the hamstring injury that has kept him out for seven games since scoring five against Newcastle in October. Pellegrini might have wished to ease the 27-year-old back into action but with Wilfried Bony now out with a hamstring problem, the Argentinian is set to line up against Liverpool in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium. Pellegrini said: “It will be difficult because he has gone so many days without playing and I don’t think he is ready to play 90 minutes or to play two or three games in a week. It is important for Sergio to evaluate during the game how many minutes he feels he can play. “But he must start in this game because we don’t have Bony and it is important for the team to have Sergio.” French forward Nasri, who has missed City’s last six games with a hamstring injury, this week revealed via Twitter that he could be out for another three months. Now Pellegrini has given more details about the 28-year-old’s condition, revealing that he faces a tendon operation after suffering a setback on the training ground, and the lay-off could be longer than feared. Press Associationcenter_img Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini fears Samir Nasri could miss most of the rest of the season, but hopes Vincent Kompany and David Silva are back in action within a week. last_img read more

Susan G. Komen Florida Recruiting BigWigs Campaign


first_imgEach participant is challenged to raise a minimum of $1,000 to support breast health programs and services in Florida, and along the way they will be treated to prizes, incentives, and opportunities to boast of being named a top fundraiser, top team, BigWig with the most donors, or most creative campaign. For more information on the 2020 BigWigs campaign, please visit at, or contact Kelly Lindsey at (561) 514-3020 or [email protected] with questions. Throughout the competition, BigWigs will work to encourage friends and colleagues to support their efforts of raising funds for life-saving breast cancer diagnostics, navigation, education, screening, and treatment services provided throughout Florida. It won’t be unusual to see these participants popping up around social media (and hopefully around town soon enough) donning their pink wigs and sharing informational tips about breast health, personal stories of their ties to breast cancer, and asking for donations to help support Komen’s efforts to create a world without breast cancer. While BigWigs are having tons of fun, the reason they are fundraising is that breast cancer continues to affect 1 in 8 women at some point in their lifetime, and a countless number of men. This year many of these people will also have lost their jobs and their health benefits. Every two minutes, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed in the United States. This year alone 268,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are anticipated to be diagnosed in women and 2,600 cases in men. With events such as these, Komen Florida is able to make an incredible impact on increasing the current number of 3.8 million breast cancer survivors living today. About Susan G. Komen®Susan G. Komen® is the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization, working to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Komen has an unmatched, comprehensive 360-degree approach to fighting this disease across all fronts and supporting millions of people in the U.S. and in countries worldwide.  We advocate for patients, drive research breakthroughs, improve access to high-quality care, offer direct patient support and empower people with trustworthy information.  Born out of a promise between two sisters, Susan G. Komen remains committed to supporting those affected by breast cancer today, while tirelessly searching for tomorrow’s cures. About Susan G. Komen® and Komen Florida: Komen Florida is helping fuel research, advocate for patients and support people facing breast cancer locally through a variety of direct patient-centered services and by collaborating with area providers to remove barriers and connect people to needed care across the state of Florida. For more information, call (561) 514-3020 or visit It’s all about having fun and raising funds and Susan G. Komen Florida’s BigWigs campaign does both while helping in the fight against breast cancer. The organization is proud to once again host their BigWigs fundraising campaign and invites area business and community leaders to join in raising awareness, and funds during a friendly competition that runs from September 21st through October 31st.last_img read more

Dedication of 9/11 Tribute Slated for Memorial Day


first_imgBy Celia BelmonteThe Red Bank Volunteer Fire Department will unveil its 9/11 tribute in a ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday, May 28, Memorial Day, outside the Red Bank Borough Hall at 90 Monmouth St.The monument includes a piece of steel from one of the World Trade Center Towers. “I applied for the piece in 2010,” Fire Chief Alan Soden Jr. said. “The application is the biggest thing. They want to know exactly where the steel will go and how it will be specifically used for a monument. We even had to send a picture of the monument two weeks ago.”Soden’s father, Alan Soden Sr., who was fire chief in 1986, was also involved in obtaining the steel for the tribute. “It was a long process with a lot of paperwork and legal action,” the senior Soden said. “All the pieces were numbered because every piece was evidence.”The fire department was not approved to pick up the steel until winter 2011 at a high security terminal atthe John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, N.Y.Once the 450-pound piece was in Red Bank, Bobby Holiday, a volunteer fireman and former fire chief, created five wooden models of potential monument designs. After a vote, the fire department’s six companies finally decided on Holiday’s personal favorite, The Rising.A memorial with steel from the World Trade Center will be dedicated on Memorial Day on Monmouth Street, Red Bank.“In this design I tried to show that the steel is rising back to the top,” Holiday said. “It’s going back up.”The design places the twisted piece of steel on two pegs of different sizes, slant­ing it upward toward a representation of twin towers behind it. Beginning from the base of the steel, the design forces the eye up along the metal piece to the top of the towers where the numbers “9” and “11” have been placed.“Clark Craig made the towers for us for just the material cost,” Holiday said. “His friend donated the specially cut numbers for free. It is still unknown who it was.”The fire department understands how important it is to have this 9/11 tribute in the community. “We want to remember the 343 firemen that died that day and all of the others who lost their lives,” Soden Sr. said.The department also hopes to commemorate the life of their fallen brother, Mark F. Hemschoot, a member of the Red Bank Volunteer Fire Department who worked on one of the top floors of the World Trade Center.Hemschoot’s name is part of a plaque listing the names of volunteer members who have died in the line of duty. The plaque, placed below the original bell from the early 20th century Liberty Fire House on White Street, is part of the fire department’s two-year-old memorial.The 9/11 tribute is a much welcomed addition. “People love it and have said how nice it looks,” Soden Sr. said. “Everyone is pleased with it. It took some time but we got it where we wanted it.”last_img read more

Stix, geared for athletes 3-6 years old, riders may show off their favorite stride bike, 4-wheel bike or standard 2-wheel bicycle. As for the 30 min. & 60 min. trail options, race organizer Charlie Cooper provides this description: “The trails just above the College are mostly double-track and very smooth, but there’s also a fun section of single-track called Roller Coaster that will have riders twist & turn their way downhill as fast as they want back to the finish.

She worked well. I couldn’t knock it.“She went decent” yesterday, six furlongs in 1:14.40.“Stellar Wind is kind of the opposite of Beholder and Songbird. Stellar Wind is a horse that just does OK in the morning. She saves her best for the afternoon. Her work last Friday was good. I didn’t mind it at all.“She’s not a big, imposing filly, doesn’t carry a lot of weight to her, but obviously she has a lot of try in her. For an average work horse, she looked very, very good this morning (six furlongs in 1:13.60).“This is a whole different swimming pool Songbird is jumping into. I have the utmost respect for Carina Mia (second by nearly six lengths to Songbird in the Cotillion). I think she’s distance limited, and I think Catherina Sophia (third in the Cotillion, 9 ½ lengths behind Songbird) is, too, so consequently it’s open for debate as to what Songbird has been beating.“Can you knock her wins? Not really. I thought it was kind of interesting, although the races were run on different days, that when she and Arrogate both ran a mile and a quarter at Saratoga, Arrogate ran four seconds faster. (Arrogate won the Travers in 1:59.20 on Aug. 27; Songbird won the Alabama in 2:03 on Aug. 20). Songbird went easy throughout (yesterday, five furlongs in 1:01, breezing).“I can’t knock any of the three of them, and there are also some very nice fillies coming in from the East Coast.”As to Classic favorite California Chrome, Young has been an observer from afar, so to speak, since the 2014 Horse of the Year does the vast majority of his training at his home base of Los Alamitos.“I’ve only seen videos of his works at Los Alamitos,” Young said, “and he’s King of the Mountain now. The one hurdle that he hasn’t cleared yet is Arrogate.“With all due respect to the older horse division and other places around the country, including New York, I don’t think they’re close to what Chrome is, and I think the only hurdle he has left to keep him from having a perfect season is Arrogate, and we’re going to see what happens on Nov. 5.”      Jerry Hollendorfer3754414%35%$281,406 Richard Baltas5279613%42%$421,900 SANTA ANITA STATISTICS Mike Smith2143219%43%$245,565 Joseph Talamo3976218%38%$302,675 Norberto Arroyo, Jr.7514121219%51%$582,413 Mark Glatt2756919%74%$211,431 Mike Puype1941121%32%$131,630 Jeff Mullins1340331%54%$125,525last_img read more
