A devastating incident

On Friday morning, a 17-year-old student had killed ten people as he was armed with the shotgun and a
pistol at Santa Fe High School. America is facing several school shooting incidents and this one has become the 22 nd incident this year. Serious mitigation measures need to be considered to stop these acts.

At Santa Fe High School, students were taking their class as per routine when they heard the alarm. They thought it as a part of their fire drill but somehow it turned into an actual incident. The suspect entered the school and then goes to an art classroom and opened fire with a shotgun. With the voice of fire, bell and the screaming, students began to run away to save themselves. Some went under the table to cover themselves. As reported by the students, the teachers were trying to help students in getting out of the school.

“It is with great sadness that I stand here to share with you that we experienced an unthinkable tragedy
at our high school this morning. We are grieving the loss of members of our SFISD family.” These were the words of Santa Fe independent school district superintendent Leigh Wal.

After the incident has been taken place, 10 people and a police officer were immediately shifted to the
hospital in a very critical condition. The police officer got injured while he was trying to protect the students by engaging the shooter. The seriousness of injuries is still unknown.

As told by the witnesses, the shooting incident took place at the time of 7.30am when all the routine
activities of the school were taken place. As the bell goes off, the students thought it as the fire drill.However, after the voices of shots and screaming, they ran to save their life.

About the suspect:

The suspect is a 17-year-old student named Dimitrios Pagourtzis. He was the former player of football in
the American team and was also a part of various religious events. He has already been taken into the custody of the police and charged with the murder. After the investigation, it was found out that the suspect has mentioned about conducting a shooting and then committing suicide into a writing journal before. When held by the police, he has given the statement that he started shooting with the intent to kill people. However, as per his words, he left the students who he likes so that they can forward his story to other people.

There were no warning signs at the school and the suspect does not possess any kind of criminal history. Moreover, the weapons he used were legally owned by his father. As per the official, there is a possibility that father does not know that his son is going to use these weapons on that day. Apart from the shotgun the suspect has used, some explosive material was also found at the school.The incident has left everyone devastated.

A couple of years ago, I was with my friend Adam Cohn when he made this simple yet important declaration — “San Francisco should always have a subway under construction.” My first reaction was to think of every possible objection to the concept — too expensive, too disruptive, too controversial, too many difficulties siting subway stations and determining alignments. But, I quickly realized that the statement was both insightful and correct.
San Francisco is experiencing unprecedented growth. The city has 200,000 more people than in the early 1980s and 100,000 more than in the early 2000s. We are growing by about 10,000 people a year and are projected to add another 150,000 residents by 2040. We see the results of this growth on our streets every day, with more and more auto congestion and a harder time for our extensive bus network navigating the streets and meeting schedules. Indeed, Muni buses travel at the slowest average speed of any urban bus system in the country, at just over eight miles per hour on average.

Form Us With Love recently created the Nest Collection for +Halle. The series provides an unpronounced divider to the traditional lounge area, by simply creating layers of both high and low seating. The heights offers a sense of privacy, whilst maintaining the comfort of a relaxed armchair.

“With Nest, you can create a perfect room-in-a-room feeling without having to add traditional tall room dividers or high back sofas,” commented Martin Halle, Brand and communication director at +Halle. “When first installed it was evident that people were sitting next to each other-at different levels-without being affected by their neighbors. With a minimal expression, the Nest Collection, keeps the room open in a new way.”

Fascinated by the typologies of pedestals, such as the Umpire’s chair on a tennis court, Form Us With Love has experimented with a lofty landscape, adding the element of dignity and softness to a seat with a view. “Our ideas of different height layers led, as they often do, into deeper research,” explained John Löfgren, Creative Director at Form Us With Love. “We analysed the activities and behaviours of a public spaces, and the upholstered furniture vs. bar stool seating scenario. Instead of putting the two characteristics next to one another, we merged them-creating a tall vertical Nest.”

Archtober is accepting nominations for projects to be included in New York City’s month-long festival of architecture and design. Each day in October 2016, the event will feature a Building of the Day as a noon-time, architect-led tour.

Building of the Day tours are the centerpiece of Archtober. With the goal of making exemplary architecture and the work of architects more accessible to the general public, the lunchtime tours, led by the project’s architect, generate international publicity and provide a platform for engagement in important issues in the New York City built environment.

The building can be located in any of the five boroughs of New York City and does not need to be a recently completed project. The building must be available for a lunchtime tour during October 2016. The building should be nominated by the architect, who is responsible for clearing the copyrights of the images submitted. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 29.

The winners have been announced for the Bee Breeders Tokyo Pop Lab architecture competition. The competition brief called for the design of a new program for the study and production of pop culture media. The unique and original nature of the brief resulted in submissions varying considerably, from fairly pragmatic to completely ideological.

The winning submissions were chosen for their well considered definition of popular culture, the clarity of their representation, and their clear concept of the structure of the laboratory’s program.

The first place winners are a team from Italy whose project consisted of two large cubes placed in opposing corners of the site, lifted above the ground plane, and rejoined with an elevated walkway.
