Located on the plateau of the Giza Necropolis, the project is nestled in the village of Nazlet El Samman. This ancient site was founded in the 7th century by desert tribes fascinated by the Pyramids; the village is a preserved site, a whole journey through time, and the common transport is still horse or camel ride. Restoring this village creates a bulwark against the massive tourist influx and the real estate speculations that generate tabula rasa in these historical districts. The Cheops Observatory is also an artist’s residence, a gateway at the entrance of the desert, an inhabited belvedere at a walking distance of the largest of the pyramids of the Giza plateau.Save this picture!© RayemAccording to recent estimations, more than 60% of global construction is done nowadays without building permits, generating an architecture without architects. In Cairo, informal architecture breaks all records and stretches on 70% of the territory; It has spread mainly on agricultural land right after the 2011’s Egyptian revolution. Save this picture!© RayemIn this context, the agency’s approach to this project was multiple; We worked on a systemic approach on Informal Architecture, on which an intervention was necessary for the safeguarding, the preservation and the extension of the historical heritage. According to centuries-old oral traditions, the residence was built orally, without any plan, just a few sketches drawn on the desert sand.Local construction techniques and ancestral savoir-faire and crafts of the villagers are an essential part of the project, with a social and environmental commitment. Materials are upcycled, diverted and reused in a short circuit; The facades are made up of an accumulation of raw earth bricks, recycled traditional windows, and shutters coming from the circular economy of the village. Part of the crowning consists of a triangular tent handcrafted by an ancestral tribe living in the Giza desert.Save this picture!© RayemA vertical stratification inscribes this architecture in a temporal process linking the vernacular, the contemporary and the nomad in one main building. This architecture with variable geometry allows both specific or integral protection system, effective against the sun rays, as well as optimal air-cooling flow on the levels.Save this picture!© RayemA hyper-contextual and sensorial architecture, open to the great pyramid. The Observatory was built in alignment with the pyramid of Khufu, the oldest, largest and only one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world still existing today.Save this picture!© RayemThe building has an East-West orientation, which gives it an optimal position to contemplate the trajectories of the sun and the moon in their greatest course possible. This exceptional situation allows examining the relationship of the Pyramid to the North Star, the precession of the equinoxes (change of direction of the axis of rotation of the earth) amongst others.Save this picture!© RayemThose relations create an architectural and landscape composition with logical continuities and concordances of views while opening powerful perspectives towards the pyramid from the garden, the swimming pool, the time room and even on the reflections of the furniture.  The Time Room is a powerful meditative observation space facing the Great Pyramid of Cheops. The textile roof folds and unfolds very quickly depending on the season, creating an open, covered or uncovered room. A specific wooden framework with pyramidal truss and radiating lines has been designed in a new typology, allowing to double the height under the ceiling. This triangular shape creates an aspiration, a three-dimensional portal, in a greater than life anamorphosis that frames the great pyramid of Giza. In addition, a horizontal canopy was installed towards the West façade and the sunset, creating a second irradiated anamorphosis of the great pyramid of Khufu which is revealed in the center of the Time Room.Save this picture!© RayemConnected to the elements, this architecture opens out without artifices, bays, glazing or other dividers to be in a vivid relationship with its environment, generating a hyper contextual space, sensory and porous.Save this picture!© RayemThe Cheops Observatory is both open and closed, nomad and sedentary, erectile and material construction. Back to the basics of Architecture, the Observatory creates a dialogue between local vernacular architecture and an architectural ready-made, an answer to the necessary mutation of informal architecture, one of the fundamental issues of 21st-century ecology.Save this picture!© RayemProject gallerySee allShow lessHow Colors Change the Perception of Interior SpacesArticlesThe Largest Open-Air Venue for Events and Concerts in Europe is Under Construction i…Architecture News Share “COPY” Photographs Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Cheops Observatory Residence / Studio Malka Architecture Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/935191/cheops-observatory-residence-studio-malka-architecture Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/935191/cheops-observatory-residence-studio-malka-architecture Clipboard CopyHouses, Heritage•Egypt Year:  Projects “COPY”last_img read more

Protect Against SDS and SCN With Saltro® Fungicide Seed Treatment

first_img SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 10, 2021 Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/saltro-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.As soybean growers prepare for planting this season, they’ll be looking for the best option to get their crop out of the ground quickly and protect their crop from yield robbing diseases like Sudden Death Syndrome.“Sudden Death Syndrome is one of the top yield robbing diseases that we have in the US,” says Kevin Scholl, agronomy service representative with Syngenta. He adds that SDS can cause up to 50 percent yield loss in a field.“The symptomologies appear earlier and more severe when it occurs in combination with SCN (Soybean Cyst Nematode) infection. This is due to a couple reasons. The SCN opens up the soybean root to allow the infection of the SDS pathogen. Also, these nematodes weaken and stress the plant because it’s a parasite too, and that will also increase the chance of infection from SDS.”Scholl says Saltro® fungicide seed treatment will help growers continue planting earlier and offer their soybeans the best defense against SDS and nematodes.“We need to set a good foundation against both SDS and SCN. Growers should consider upgrading to Saltro® fungicide seed treatment. Saltro® delivers great SDS protection while also providing a robust nematode activity. Unlike older technologies, Saltro® provides superior SDS protection without the negative effect of early-season crop stress, helping soybeans reach their full genetic yield potential. Saltro® provides a 4-bushel yield advantage over the market standard under SDS pressure according to many trials that we’ve had over the U.S.Always read and follow label instructions.
