The Music Box Residence was designed around the intimate and communal qualities of music and family. Situated along a steep sloping site on the outskirts of Portland, the Music Box Residence rises up to capture and accentuate magnificent views of the Portland cityscape and the Cascade Range beyond.Save this picture!Diagram 01Save this picture!Diagram 02Save this picture!Diagram 04Save this picture!Diagram 03In order to create acoustically separate spaces for the two musicians to practice and teach, the home was split into two distinct sides. The home’s entry bridge leads directly onto the second story of the home, accenting the vertical move from the adjacent street. A glass volume bridges the two sides and serves as a communal gathering space.Save this picture!© Pete EckertOn the lowest level, the percussion room is placed against the hill. The husband, a timpanist in the Oregon Symphony, required a large space for a wide array of boisterous percussion instruments. On the main level, screened behind the exterior bamboo garden, sits the piano studio where the wife’s students come to learn and play.Save this picture!© Pete EckertThe studio opens onto the main living room and outdoor space, providing the opportunity for larger recitals and parties. The upper level houses the private spaces of home, including rooms for the children and guests. Ascending up the stairs, an operable skylight opens up to a spacious balcony and roof deck with unobstructed views to the north.Save this picture!© Pete EckertProject gallerySee allShow less11 Things You Learn at Your First “Real” Architecture Job (Lessons from a Recent Gra…Articles50 Most Popular HousesArticles Share Year:  Area:  6473 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Pete Eckert+ 22 Sharelast_img read more

Two journalists still held after “Black Spring” journalist Iván Hernández’s release

first_img News February 21, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists still held after “Black Spring” journalist Iván Hernández’s release May 6, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts October 12, 2018 Find out more New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago Iván Hernández Carrillo, a correspondent for the small independent news agency Pátria, returned to his family home in Matanzas province on 19 February after eight years in jail. Sentenced to 25 years in prison during the March 2003 “Black Spring” crackdown on dissidents, he is the second of the “Black Spring” journalists to be allowed the stay in Cuba following their release. The first was Héctor Maseda Gutiérrez, who was freed nine days ago. All the others had to agree to go into exile in return for their release. Hernández has said he plans to resume working as an independent journalist.Pedro Argüelles Morán is now the only “Black Spring” journalist still awaiting release. We hope he will be freed soon, like Albert Santiago Du Bouchet, an independent journalist who has been jailed since 2009. We are also still waiting to know the exact reasons for former Spanish producer and journalist Sebastián Martínez Ferrate’s detention in Havana since 11 July 2010.We welcome the fact that the government is finally turning the page on the “Black Spring,” a harrowing chapter in Cuba’s recent history, and we urge it to take this further by respecting the rights of all its citizens, bloggers and human rights activities, who are demanding more freedom of expression.The repression must stop and the authorities must accept the principle of pluralism. Recent encouraging signs of an opening, including the unblocking of certain blogs and websites, will hopefully pave the way for a real debate between government and civil society. CubaAmericas October 15, 2020 Find out more News Pedro Argüelles Morán________________14.02.11 – Journalist’s release and unblocking of dissident blogs – signs of real opening?The 12 February release of Héctor Maseda Gutiérrez, the co-founder of a small independent news agency called the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro, may mean that the page is finally about to be turned on the “Black Spring” crackdown on journalists and dissidents of March 2003. He was not forced to go into exile in return for his release.Reporters Without Borders hopes it will be soon be followed by the release of the last two journalists still held since Black Spring, Pedro Argüelles Morán and Iván Hernández Carrillo, who like Maseda are refusing to leave the country . If the authorities then also release Albert Santiago Du Bouchet, who has been held since 2009, there will be no more Cuban journalists in prison.The Cuban government had promised the Spanish government and the Cuban Catholic church last July to release the 52 remaining “Black Spring” prisoners within four months but Maseda, 68, was one of the 11 who refused to go into exile. Since 12 February, six of them have been due to be freed without having to submit to exile.Their release does not overturn the sentences imposed on them in 2003, as Maseda himself protested after being escorted to his Havana home.Although good news, Maseda’s release raises many lingering questions about the “Black Spring.” It continues to be a mystery why Cubans were sentenced to such long sentences (ranging from 14 to 27 years in prison) on such outrageous sentences as spying and treason just for claiming the right to freely inform others.It is also unclear why most of them were forced to go into exile upon release but now some of them are being allowed to stay. These questions will have an impact on the debate about the country’s future. We hope that the journalists who were sent into exile will be allowed to return.In another positive development, access to about 40 dissident blogs and Internet pages – including Yoani Sánchez’s Generación Y – has been unblocked since 9 February. Foreign press reports quoted Sánchez as saying this easing in online censorship was perhaps due to the fact that an information technology trade fair was held in Havana from 7 to 11 February.Reporters Without Borders hopes this will continue and will be extended when Cuba’s new fibre-optic Internet cable connection with Venezuela becomes operational in July. Laying of the undersea cable, known as ALBA-1, was completed on 8 February.If the Cuban government agrees to unblock the Internet and give the country a better connection, will it also agree to legalize online independent media? And privately-owned media? The answers to these questions will determine whether or not the signs of an opening of recent days are real.center_img to go further Organisation Follow the news on Cuba RSF_en Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet News CubaAmericas News Help by sharing this information Albert Santiago Du Bouchetlast_img read more
