The redesign of this Omaha, Nebraska home focused on seamlessly integrating artworks from the couple’s extensive collection. Devoted almost entirely to the work of artist Jun Kaneko, the collection includes several large-scale sculptural and two-dimensional works. Kaneko is known for his strong sensitivity to space and surrounding environments. Accordingly, this home’s design paid special attention to the relationship of the artworks both to the built environment, and to the newly integrated natural environment brought visually into the home.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderSave this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderSave this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderOpening up the home to the surrounding landscaping was a prime directive for the remodel, as was the desire to concentrate common living spaces onto a single level. The new program brings the main living and dining areas of the house under one sheltering pitched roof that conveys the home’s Midwestern context. Opening up this roof with a single long skylight running down the middle of the pitch brought a new sense of lightness to the gallery-like home.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderSave this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderElevating the roof line and incorporating floor-to-ceiling windows also advanced this aim, with the added benefit of creating a sense of transparency between interior and exterior. The main floor continues to the other side of the home with a kitchen, den and master suite. There are three additional guest bedrooms upstairs. A revamped front façade and a custom bronze and steel front door creates an intriguing entry to the home, beginning a series of contemplative moments that continue throughout the house.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderProject gallerySee allShow lessCoal Drops Yard Photographed Through the Lens of Laurian GhinitoiuArchitecture NewsBjarke Ingels’ Burning Man ORB Captured through the Lens of Laurian GhinitoiuArchitecture News Share Houses Photographs:  Benjamin Benschneider ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905667/omaha-art-house-olson-kundig Clipboard APS Custom CopyAbout this officeOlson KundigOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentOmahaUnited StatesPublished on November 12, 2018Cite: “Omaha Art House / Olson Kundig” 12 Nov 2018.

Inaction by Mexican authorities in 21 disappearances of journalists since 2000

first_img MexicoAmericas Condemning abuses ImpunityDisappearances February 12, 2018 Inaction by Mexican authorities in 21 disappearances of journalists since 2000 Help by sharing this information to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Receive email alerts RSF_en Aged 38, Estrada lived in Apatzingán, in the western state of Michoacán, where he was a crime reporter for a local daily, La Opinión de Apatzingán. He left the newspaper on the evening of 12 February 2008 and was never seen again. His car with found later that night with the lights on and the doors open in the nearby town of Buenavista, colleagues told RSF at the time.Two days later, the newspaper’s management accused a Federal Investigation Agency police officer known as “El Diablo” (The Devil) of kidnapping Estrada. Three weeks before his disappearance, Estrada had written a story that reflected badly on this police officer, creating a conflict between the two. El Diablo was subsequently transferred to Mexico City. Ten years later, Estrada’s disappearance is no longer being actively investigated. The failure to identify those responsible has been unbearable for Estrada’s wife, María Dolores Barajas. “I don’t understand,” she said. “How is it possible that no leads have been pursued? My life is full of questions without answers.” Barajas complains of a lack of support, including judicial support, from the Executive Commission for Attention to Victims (CEAV), from which she has been seeking assistance since 2011. She is now threatened with eviction from her home for failing to make payments on the mortgage contracted by her husband.Of the at least 21 journalists who have disappeared in the past 18 years, at least eight have missing for more than ten years, according to Mexico’s National Commission for Human Rights (CNDH). “With 12 journalists murdered since the start of 2017, the Mexican authorities are clearly already failing in their duty to protect media personnel,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“At the same time, they don’t assume their responsibility to conduct thorough investigations into the many cases of missing journalists or to ensure that the families of the victims get adequate compensation. The federal prosecutor’s office must redouble its efforts to provide concrete responses to the disappearance of Mauricio Estrada Zamora and all the other cases of journalists missing in Mexico.”The involvement of state agents has been suspected in most of these cases, because the missing journalists were covering stories linked to local politics, corruption or public security. This is unbearable for the families, because the perpetrators are often able to pressure witnesses and investigators, and even get investigations closed.The most recent case of a journalist disappearing is that of Agustín Silva Vázquez, 22, a resident of Matías Romero, in the southern state of Oaxaca. This young crime reporter for El Sol del Istmo, a regional daily, was last seen on 21 January.A few days before he disappeared, he covered a military operation resulting in the seizure of firearms and the arrests of three persons. Silva’s father said an individual identifying himself as the lawyer of the three detainees had asked Silva to testify in their defence, and Silva had refused. Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. On the tenth anniversary today of Mexican journalist Mauricio Estrada Zamora’s disappearance, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the appalling level of impunity in Mexico, where there have been at least 21 unsolved disappearances of journalists since 2000.
