the ‘rebel house’ designed by amsterdam-based studio atelier van wengerden is situated in almere, the netherlands where parcels were made available for people to build their own homes. this particular piece of land was titled, ‘ik bouw in mijn tuin’, which means, ‘I build in my garden’. the available space was fairly tight, measuring just 9x8m with an allowed height of 3.7m. working with a limited budget and other restricting factors such as, proximity to the site boundaries and a low maintenance shelter, the detached house still manages to offer views and light-filled spaces on all sides.

 

the distinctive geometry incorporates a butterfly roof and an exterior clad in corrugated aluminum sheeting. the cost effective and robust structure has indentations in the façades, enabling the volume to be opened outwards to the east with an entrance awning on the west. in contrast to the image of a shiny box on the outside, the interior is constructed using timer to create a warm and comforting atmosphere.

 

 


the detached house manages to fit into the site’s tight parameters

 

 

the rooms consists of a bathroom, cloakroom cupboard, cabinets, wardrobe and even a guest bed, with a sliding door to separate the living and sleeping areas. during the summer months, the hidden double doors can be opened out to the garden, while the triangular, aluminum shed in the back creates more privacy at this end.

Derde dode bij Amsterdam Dance Event


door
ANP

20 okt 2014


AMSTERDAM (ANP) – Een derde bezoeker van het Amsterdam Dance Event is afgelopen weekend overleden. Een 41-jarige vrouw stierf zondagochtend aan de gevolgen van drugsgebruik, liet de politie maandag weten.



De vrouw bezocht met haar man een feest op het Westergasterrein en ging daarna nog naar een feest in Club Lite aan de Jan van Galenstraat. Hier raakte ze onwel. Haar man nam haar daarop mee in een taxi naar een ziekenhuis, waar ze kort na aankomst overleed. Volgens een schouwarts is de vrouw overleden door xtc.

Ook een 21-jarige man uit Oude Wetering en een 33-jarige man uit Servië stierven afgelopen zondag, vermoedelijk aan de gevolgen van drugsgebruik.

De Baxter robot was tot nu toe nog niet te zien in Nederland. De Stichting Art of Robotics heeft de primeur. In november is er een uitgebreide tour georganiseerd. De steden die worden aangedaan zijn Eindhoven, Almere, Enschede, Dronten en Zwolle.

Baxter professionele service robot voor het MKB

Volgens deskundigen is het moment dat robots en mensen gaan samenwerken nu aangebroken. Tony Fadell, nauw betrokken bij de ontwikkeling van de iPod en iPhone, noemt de ontwikkeling van Baxter: “Een Macintosh moment voor de robotwereld”. Hij bedoelt dat we met Baxter een punt in de ontwikkeling van de robot hebben bereikt waarop ze onomkeerlijk ons leven binnenkomen, met ons samen gaan werken en deel van oze wereld worden.

Baxter is een geweldig veelzijdige robot die eenvoudige taken in MKB bedrijven kan uitvoeren aan een lopende band. Doordat Baxter met zijn sensoren weet waar de objecten zijn die hij moet pakken is hij flexibel, in plaats van de rigide robots die we bijvoorbeeld kennen uit de auto industrie.

Door zijn sensoren is hij ook in staat om mensen te zien die met hem samenwerken. Daardoor is Baxter ook nog eens heel veilig. De manier waarop Baxter kan worden geprogrammeerd is ook heel modern. In plaats van regel voor regel code voor Baxter te laten schrijven door een programmeur, kan de robot van mensen leren. Als zijn collega hem laat zien wat hij moet doen, door zijn handen het werk een keer voor te doen, dan zal hij het gewoon herhalen.  Hij kan dus zo aan de slag.

Persoonlijke kennismaking Baxter 

De events op 25,26 en 27 november zijn voor iedereen toegankelijk. Dat is in de steden Almere, Enschede en Dronten. Voor meer informatie verwijzen we graag naar onze evementen kalender. We hopen je daar te ontmoeten.
