Expanding the architectural references of the small seaside town of Xangri-la, RS, CASA08 brings the illuminated freshness of the union between geometry and transparency. Modernism that challenges the perspective, with blocks that distribute the 175sqm of construction in a challenging design that supports all the volume of the work in only two cubes.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiOn the first floor, a large block of apparent ripped super rustic concrete contrasts with large glass cloths. On the front facade the large wooden soleise brise the privacy of the family and conveys a little warmth to the building. In the back, the large translucent spans guarantee an interactive and versatile space to the exterior areas of the house and the entrance of natural light.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiIn addition to the extensive garden area, CASA08 has a generous dining room with barbecue and a large fireplace for the couple to enjoy the cold winter days. Living areas and gourmet kitchen are fully integrated into the rest of this floor. In the second floor the master suite and 2 more suites guarantee warmth to the rest of the family and friendsSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Architecture of Chernobyl: Past, Present, and FutureArchitecture NewsAS+GG Architecture to Design Yacht-Inspired Tower in MiamiArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Marcelo Donadussi+ 34Curated by Pedro Vada Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Brazil CopyHouses•Xangri-Lá, Brazil CopyAbout this officeLive IncorporadoraOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesXangri-láBrazilPublished on April 30, 2018Cite: “CASA08 / Live Incorporadora” [Casa 08 / Live Incorporadora] 30 Apr 2018.

Hemlock pest

first_imgThousands of broken trees line the banks of the Chattooga River. The dead gray stabs were once evergreen monsters offering shade to trout and picturesque views to visitors. These Eastern hemlocks are dying rapidly, and University of Georgia researchers are working to save them. One tiny insect, the hemlock woolly adelgid, is to blame. The Asian insect first appeared in the eastern U.S. in Richmond, Va., in the 1950s. In 2003, it crossed the river from South Carolina and started feeding on Georgia trees.Cell suckersThe tiny pests suck up cells from the tree’s needles, which prevent them from transferring water and conducting photosynthesis. The first obvious sign of an infestation is thinning foliage. Needles fall off, and the crown starts thinning. From a distance, trees look gray. Researchers working to find ways to combat the adelgid have focused on releasing ladybird beetles, which eat adelgids. A new UGA study brings some of the logistical issues to light and offers hope for more successful control in the future. The results were published in the December issue of the Journal of Economic Entomology. “Because the trees being attacked live mostly in remote forests where insecticide application is impractical, predators may be the best hope for tree survival,” said Shimat Joseph, former UGA doctoral student who authored the journal article. Predators help, but they aren’t hardyPrevious studies have shown widely released predator beetles, Laricobius nigrinus and Sasajiscymnus tsugae, have been successful in controlling hemlock wooly adelgid populations, but they have not survived well through multiple seasons. “Adelgid populations are not concentrated where we are releasing the predators,” Joseph said. “Previous studies assumed populations are evenly distributed, but we are seeing that is not the case.” According to the study, adelgid populations tend to be more abundant in the upper crown, especially early in the infestation. This study suggests predator releases should focus in this area where higher densities are more likely. Up to this point, releases have been made in the lower third of the tree crown. “Chemical control can slow the spread of adelgids, but beetles provide some hope that we will be able to manage the adelgids and bring them into balance. We may never be able to eliminate them,” said Kris Braman, an entomologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and co-author of the paper.Diamonds over the canopy The three-year study looked at the population rates of adelgids in hemlocks located in the Chattahoochee National Forest. The 60 north Georgia trees selected for the study were 25 to 70 years old. Predator beetles are reared on infested hemlock branches in labs. When released, the branches, saturated with about 100 beetles, are tied to living trees where populations have been identified. Strategic placement of the predators is important for successful control of the adelgid—and for the bottom line. “Because the beetles are so expensive to grow, every single little beetle is like releasing diamonds over the canopy,” Braman said.A cocktail of fertilizer and insecticide was applied to the trees included in the study to develop an application ratio that would maintain tree health while keeping enough adelgids alive to serve as sustainable food for the beetles but not enough to kill the tree. “Part of the problem with maintaining predator beetles has to do with the declining tree health,” said study co-author Jim Hanula, an entomologist with the U.S. Forest Service and adjunct faculty in the UGA department of entomology. “As tree health declines, adelgids produce fewer eggs and, in turn, less food for the predators.”Georgia trees decline faster than those found in northern states due to a lack of winter weather, which kills back adelgid populations in the North.
