In July 1942 Anne Frank’s family left their Amsterdam apartment and moved into a small room in the building where her father worked.  The entrance to the room was hidden by a bookcase.  They hoped to avoid being sent to one of the Nazi concentration camps. Thirteen year old Anne started a diary less than a month before.  She made entries until she and her family were found by the Nazi’s two years later.Anne Frank was Hitler’s most famous victim. More than 30 Million copies of her diary have been sold and it has been translated into 67 languages.On Sunday, February 12th The Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida and the Judaic Studies Program at UCF invite the public to spend an afternoon with historian Dr. David Barnouw.Dr. David BarnouwBarnouw is the editor of The Diary of Anne Frank, The Critical Edition and has spent many years researching her legacy. In his book, The Anne Frank Phenomenon, he highlights the various ways in which Anne’s life and ultimate fate have been represented, interpreted, and exploited in the years after World War II. Taking a global view on the phenomenon of Anne Frank, Dr. Barnouw will explore the perceptions of Anne Frank and her diary as well as touch on recent controversies.Dr. Barnouw’s presentation will begin at 2:00 PM.Before and after the lecture attendees can visit a specially designed traveling exhibit, Anne Frank: A History for Today. The exhibit tells the powerful story of young girl in hiding from the Nazis during WWII through photographs, letters, and of course Anne’s own diary. The Frank family’s story is juxtaposed against world events during the rise to power of Adolf Hitler, and shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals.The exhibit engages viewers in Anne’s experiences before and during the War, with the goal of promoting an understanding of how racism, indifference, and apathy can destroy individuals, families, and entire communities. Throughout the bilingual exhibit (English/Spanish), Anne’s own candid writing provides a central voice to the exhibit narrative, bringing a poignant and truly beautiful perspective to the story.

Like a child’s seat, it’s rear facing and offers protection just in case something does happen. Need something to hold drinks, tissues, snacks, or other things you need quick and easy access to, a shower or shoe organizer is great for everyone, especially kids. You’ll have activities and snacks without having to dig for things, and they don’t have to bug you for them. 13)Five-Port Charger If you’re renting a car and a little unfamiliar with it, positioning your mirrors is one of the first things you have to do. It’s also something that has to be constantly checked, because inevitably they get knocked out of position. The best way to position the mirrors is to position them so that your car is barely, if at all visible in them. This eliminates many of the blind spots along the side of your car. For storing snack items, empty creamer bottles are a great option. You simply wash it out, let it dry, and then fill it with whatever you want. Follow the trucks! Truckers tend to know a lot more about the driving conditions than the typical driver, because they talk with each other and share info. If there’s a traffic jam, pay attention to which lanes the trucks are using and follow their lead. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter During the summer, one of the worst things that can happen during a road trip is that your A/C stops working. Here’s what to do – lower the front windows, keep the back windows closed, and you’ll still have a fairly cool car. The circulation of air is actually increased and it makes the breeze stronger.

With a five-port charger, everyone’s devices can stay charged for the entire road trip! 3)Hang an Organizer on the Back of a Seat Need some visual entertainment, but don’t have TV monitors in your vehicle. Hang an iPad off of a sun visor for a makeshift TV monitor. A cereal container is a perfect size for a  trash can in the car.

From the outside, the house is a patina-aged copper clad cube with window openings and timber infill carved into the façade.

The design process of volumetric reduction of a nine-by-nine cube provides for cross ventilation and minimises the impact of the massing of the building with respect to the adjacent dwelling units.

The object of a reconstruction is a country/suburban house near Kyiv (Ukraine). It was totally neglected by former owners. Original building had a lot of small rooms and an attic. In our redesign we removed the walls including a part of a bearing wall, which was replaced with a wooden beam. A kitchen and a living room became one space.Save this picture!© Sergey PolyushkoThe living room was designed as a double height area, but there was not enough daylight. So we made windows in a roof to enhance the lighting. We offered to set a fireplace in a corner and a plasma TV opposite the couch. Almost all our ideas, including general layout, self-leveling floor, kitchen worktop by the window, combination of colors and others were welcomed by the client.Save this picture!Floor PlanOne of the main design elements in the living room is the exclusive metal stairs that lead to a balcony through the hidden doors. The doorways are equipped with 4mm metal sheet, which prevents mechanical damages of the corners.Save this picture!© Sergey PolyushkoThe client has several dogs, so the guest bathroom was provided with a grill floor to wash the pets’ paws comfortably.As a result of the reconstruction the house has become spacious and light.Save this picture!© Sergey PolyushkoProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Light House / Sigurd LarsenSelected ProjectsLADPRAO 80 House / Black Pencils StudioSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officeTSEH Architectural GroupOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentKievUkrainePublished on May 30, 2017Cite: “House Reconstruction for a Young Family / TSEH Architectural Group” 29 May 2017.

Taringa Treehouse is a detached residential extension located in a backyard. It is both integrated and independent to the original house. The treehouse instigates a shift in occupation within the Site, reflecting an attitude of informality inspired by a significant tree and the peculiar territory it occupies.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesBrisbane is a verdant, subtropical, suburban place. House lots are typically long and thin. Traditional timber and tin houses (Queenslanders) politely occupy the street edge and create largely unoccupied spaces at the rear. These ‘backyards’ tend to be overgrown, unruly spaces and are the domain of children and makeshift structures. The treehouse is devised as an invitation to visit and engage with this distinct yet typically unchartered territory.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesThe footprint is confined and placement careful to minimise displacement of valued landscape. The building generates a large courtyard between itself and the house, secures privacy to the side and rear neighbours and casts shade in the afternoon. The triangular plan is the considered response to the field of immediate adjacencies.Save this picture!Axonometric ViewThe long edge [hypotenuse] has been cut to accommodate the majestic tree and opens a broad north eastern face into the garden. The exaggerated weatherboard elevation has been designed to receive the shadow play of the tree. The short side contains the translucent stair nestled into the tree line. The western elevation catches the intense heat and light of the day and is glimpsed from the street. Draped in metallic cladding, the treehouse is revealed to the neighbourhood as an unexpected urban artefact embedded in the greenery. The treehouse presents no formal elevation back to the original house. Only the ‘thin edge of the wedge’ is present. The intention was not to fill the backyard but retain the natural aspect and vacancy.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesThe building is designed as a set of informal spaces, walls sliding open to embrace and borrow from the landscape. The program is un-prescribed, downstairs is a platform with a veranda edge, there is a climbing wall, upstairs is a loft. The scale of the building is proportioned to the tree. The structure is stretched and elongated to reach the low branches. Occupants are scaled by the internal volumes, at some moments swelling relative to the spaces other times shrinking within them. Movement is centrifugal, along its 3 sides, sling-shooting the occupants from the ground up into the canopy. The expressed structure subtly reinforcing the shifts in orientation and geometry along the journey. Save this picture!Lower Level / Upper Level PlanMany aspects of the Treehouse are informed not from local domestic architecture but rather the playful language and sensibilities of children’s cubby houses which traditionally inhabit this terrain. Whilst refined and keenly executed, the treehouse reflects upon the assemblage of eclectic materials and textures of these naïve structures. More particularly their ability to collect experiences of place and solicit memories.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesProject gallerySee allShow less”KITERASU” Model CLT Building at Kuse Station / ofaSelected ProjectsWorld’s First “Smart Street” in London Turns Footsteps into EnergyArchitecture News Share Marvel Constructions Taringa Treehouse / Phorm architecture + designSave this projectSaveTaringa Treehouse / Phorm architecture + design Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick Jones Share “COPY” Structural Design: CopyHouses•Brisbane, Australia Area:  50 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs Taringa Treehouse / Phorm architecture + design ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects Photographs:  Christopher Frederick Jones Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Australia Optimum Structures 2016 Builder: Houses CopyAbout this officePhorm architecture + designOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrisbaneAustraliaPublished on July 12, 2017Cite: “Taringa Treehouse / Phorm architecture + design” 12 Jul 2017.
