This building arises both from the proposal to live in the hybrid type “department with garden”, and also as a condition of the old planning code of Buenos Aires. This code was governed by the FOT – land occupation factor: a factor by which the land area is multiplied to obtain the amount of selling meters in the land. The price of the land is fixed based on this number. But the FOT is not computed on the exterior uncovered surfaces, so if the mass built is organized in terraces, more selling meters are obtained, without having paid for them. The building is situated on a 45m long ground. Its north facade overlooks a wide and wooded boulevard. This length allowed the entire building to be terraced so as to generate large sunny balconies. Conceptually there are 7 stacked houses, each different from the others, with large exterior spaces and a lot of perimeter of contact with the outside.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe exterior is a central feature, the configuration of the terraces articulates the building getting back on each floor obtaining maximum sunlight and views. Furthermore, the volumes of sheet metal form projections, obtaining exterior spaces covered and integrated to the interior. The project has a variety of outdoor spaces; semi-covered private access patios, vegetation porches and large green balconies or hot tubs, surrounded by potted plants with native plants. In addition, the first level units have a large backyard while those of the upper units have a private green roof. One apartment has a tree on its balcony, two have grass, and two have a jacuzzi. The departments reduce their size on each floor, therefore each one is different, and they were also customized for each client. The silhouettes of the dividing walls were designed in response to the boundary buildings without generating an aggressive wall, but an object piece. From conception, this type of architecture promotes a way of life in relation to the outdoors, and to nature, but within the city – with all that this implies. No need to use a car to get around, or live far away in a closed neighborhood to have nature and security.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasTechnicalities. Vertically, the exterior walls have double insulation: a white exterior sheet favors solar reflectance and an interior brick wall with an air chamber that allows air circulation between. In the horizontal plane, the floor is green, it contains grass and crawlers, which provide a 10 cm insulating earth mattress. In addition, they delay the drainage of the surplus of water to the network. A pergola with vine plants, that produces shadow that protects it from the sun. These exteriors create a microclimate that controls the temperature against glazed surfaces.

Local, regional and global patterns of resource use in ecology: hermit crabs and gastropod shells as an example

first_imgTo see the ‘big pictures’, it seems increasingly clear that experimental design, data collection and analyses of ecological investigation need to be at multiple scales. This causes problems with data complexity, sampling (level) and independence. Many ecological programmes are currently conducting multi-scale investigation of organismal trends (e.g. diversity). In this study, by contrast, the assemblages analysed were the resources used by animals (rather than animals per se). Variability in shell use was studied in 5 members of a taxon (hermit crabs) from global to site spatial levels. The novel adaptation of an existing technique used 1-factor, 3-level ANOVA of Bray-Curtis similarity values based on ‘centroids’ for each scale. Similarity in the number of shells used, the proportional usage of shell types, shell diversity and other variables were examined at site (> 10 m apart), locality (> 1 km apart) and region levels (> 1000 km apart). There was significant variability amongst scales and between regions in shell use of all species. For some species, observed variability differed with location, while in others the trend was similar in all 3 regions. Between 18 and 3 shell types were used by different study species with diversity (Shannon H’) values ranging from 2.54 to 0.1 and evenness values from 0.99 to 0.1. Shell use by hermit crabs was less similar (to each other) between regions than between the study hermit crab species. No significant spatial effects at any level were found on the proportion of damaged shells used by different species. The numbers of shell types used by hermit crabs had both a taxon-specific component and a global pattern. Data from the literature in combination with that from the present study showed Dardanus, Diogenes and Pagurus species used fewer shell types than Coenobita, Clibanarius and Calcinus species. No inter-oceanic patterns were evident in any genus. Shell numbers used by Clibanarius and Calcinus species both, however, exhibited distinct latitudinal clines. Adaptation of a novel technique has, thus, demonstrated global (and differential between scale) trends in resource use by a guild of animals, although interpretation of the mechanism or meaning underlying this is not straightforward.last_img read more
