The first time we visited the site, the spiritual retreat house of a religious community emerged from it. We climbed onto the roof of a four-story building with no protection other than a four-inch overhang on the perimeter and we were struck by the sight. From that eerie elevated, unprotected position, we seemed to dominate the entire valley. Sierra Nevada, the Alhambra, the Cartuja, the red roofs of the building that dotted the urban area, the extensive plain…Save this picture!© Diego OpazoSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Diego OpazoThat vision lead the project from the first sketches. How could we capture that immensity when raising such a large and resounding building, capable of housing the 419 rooms of the program? How to place an immense piece, so robust that it was able to resist any quake, and yet making it light, elegant, ephemeral …Save this picture!© Diego OpazoThe views over the Granada city and valley were astonishing but also really challenged by a very aggressive sun bathing. In order to avoid the impact of a 92m long and 6 storeys height, we shaped the project into a sort of three arms star, curving its footprint to smooth the perspectives. The most exposed façade was designed using a cracked pattern allowing us to turn the windows off the flat line, and protecting them with long perforated scales. Their function were to protect the windows from an overly aggressive afternoon sun without giving up the fascinating views. It is presented as a tribute to Mozarabic architecture, so typical from Granada, so rich in its play of light and shadow. The challenge was not to fall into a crude imitation, but to transcend the geometric catalog of Mudejar motifs without losing the force of the light filtered through the small holes. Thus, a set of triangular perforations is intuited that, due to the need to adapt to the technical and structural requirements of the material, is finally defined by a small parametric algorithm of plastic genesis.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoSave this picture!© Diego OpazoThe result is a thousand buildings in one. It changes with the entire path of the sun, when the shadows create new patterns on the white cloths. It shines like mother-of-pearl in the solar zenith and turns golden in the sunset. And between one and the other, thousands of shapes like when you shake the crystals of a kaleidoscope.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoYoung people will surely be attracted to the pool… .That strange turquoise shape that invites you to swim from a soft ramp bathed by water. Like a beach. The pristine white of the exterior contrasts with the warmth of the interiors.

first_imgBack in the 1980s, when Mark Schuster was completing an adult neurology rotation at a Harvard teaching hospital, a woman was brought to the emergency room with urinary incontinence and other symptoms, as well as signs of a herniated disc, including a confirmatory myelogram.She required surgery, making her what the neurology team called a great teaching case. It was one that came with a lesson that, for Schuster, went well beyond how to address medical condition.The radiologist handling the case unexpectedly reversed his reading and the patient’s neurosurgeon canceled the surgery. When the neurology team asked why, the radiologist admitted that the neurosurgeon had pressured him to change his reading. When the team met with the neurosurgeon, he said that he believed the patient was a lesbian because of what he considered a suspicious novel on her bedside table.“So, she’s a lesbian, what does it matter?” Schuster exclaimed, in what he recalled was a sort of out-of-body experience. He was startled by his own abrupt and indignant response.The neurosurgeon made it clear that he would not operate on a lesbian. And he didn’t. Eventually, the neurology team arranged for an orthopedic surgeon to perform the operation.Now the William Berenberg Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School (HMS), Schuster was this year’s guest speaker at the School’s second Diversity Dialogue lecture: “The Doctor is Out: A Conversation With Dr. Mark Schuster on Being a Gay Physician at Harvard.”Attended by more than 200 faculty, staff, and students from the Longwood Medical Area, the hour-long discussion in the Carl W. Walter Amphitheater on Sept. 29 allowed attendees to talk with Schuster about what it means to be an LGBT physician today.Schuster, who is also chief of the Division of General Pediatrics and vice chair for health policy in the Department of Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, used the anecdote to illustrate one of the many instances in his career where he observed LGBT bias in the medical field.In 2010, Schuster communicated some of his experiences as a gay physician in a speech at Boston Children’s Hospital’s GLBT and Friends Celebration. That wasn’t the end. After the talk was published in the journal Academic Pediatrics in 2012, the speech was reproduced by WBUR and covered by The New York Times. The speech went viral. Today, Schuster’s talk is being used as a teaching tool in medical schools across the country.“I was just telling my story,” said Schuster. “It was just a speech at Children’s. It wasn’t meant to lead me to speak here today.”Time for questionsAt this year’s Diversity Dialogue, audience questions ranged from how to find an LGBT mentor in the medical field to how to combat conscious and unconscious bias in the classroom or in the clinic.“It’s important to speak up when you can,” Schuster said.Schuster recognized that power dynamics between students and their teachers or clinical supervisors often make it hard to speak up against bias. He emphasized, however, that today there are far more resources available to students and faculty to confront these issues.“There are people to go to. Now, folks can come to the LGBT office,” at HMS and Harvard School of Dental Medicine LGBT Office, a division of the Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership (DICP), he said.“It is no small thing that is happening here today,” added Jessica Halem, event moderator and program manager at the LGBT office, of the significance of an open-forum discussion on LGBT affairs in medicine.“This is hugely auspicious,” she said.One student asked Schuster what advances may be on the horizon for other minority groups in medicine.“I hope there will be changes, not just for LGBT people, but for people of color and for women,” Schuster said. “Change is slow, but there are new generations coming.”One of the final audience questions prompted Schuster to reflect on how the viral response to his 2010 speech made such an impact, and how his continued commitment to LGBT rights in the medical field has affected his life and career.“I feel appreciative. It was an accidental gift. When I retire, this will probably be the most impactful thing I’ve done,” he said.Schuster was a principal member of the team that drafted the RAND report for the Clinton administration that showed that openly gay men and lesbians could be successfully integrated into the military. He is an elected member of the Institute of Medicine and recently served on its Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health Issues and Research Gaps and Opportunities. Now, Schuster works to advocate for the LGBT community at HMS and its affiliates, including giving talks such as the one delivered for the Diversity Dialogue series.The Diversity Dialogues are a series of presentations on topics exploring diversity and inclusion. They represent a collaborative effort by faculty and staff across the Harvard Longwood Campus.

first_imgAt 5 years old, Quentin Jerome Hillsman profiled as a tenacious sideline-to-sideline defender and a smooth, yet electric, point guard in his recreational basketball league.In his first game in a league of 5- to 7-year-olds, Hillsman intercepted a pass and ran down the right side of the court for a wide-open layup — a not-so-easy shot for the young lefty. The shot fell, and the first two points in Hillsman’s lifelong journey in basketball were recorded.“It was probably the most uncontested shot I’ve ever taken,” Hillsman joked.Now in his ninth season as the Syracuse women’s head coach, Hillsman has implemented lessons from his playing days to become the most successful coach, in terms of win percentage, in program history. Hillman’s teams have reached seven consecutive postseasons playing a style his 5-year-old self would have thrived in — an up-tempo offense and frequent press defense.“Being a former player, it makes him a lot more credible because he can relate,” SU point guard Alexis Peterson said. “In my position, you can’t ask for something better than to have someone who can relate. He’s been at every level, so he brings that experience and knowledge.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHillsman first clung to basketball because of its quickness and because his friends played. The flashiness of Earvin “Magic” Johnson and the high socks of Michael Cooper attracted him to the Los Angeles Lakers, who he still points to as his favorite team.On the court, Hillsman emulated Detroit Piston Isiah Thomas and the Utah Jazz’s John Stockton. More so Thomas than Stockton, as Hillsman admitted trash talking was a major part of his game — even in St. Mary’s (Maryland) alumni games, fellow former Seahawk Ivan Lanier said.“He always used to say, ‘I don’t care if my opponent is 2 years old, I’m taking it to them,’” said Nicole Michael, who played for the Orange from 2006–10, in an email.Hillsman’s first coaches in youth ball, Emmitt Clark and Doe Cunningham, taught him the game’s fundamentals, as well as the importance of conditioning. Aaron Holder at Forestville (Maryland) High School taught him how to be a teacher, a disciplinarian and how to follow a game plan.Hillsman graduated Forestville and attended Johnson C. Smith Community College, a Division II school in Charlotte, North Carolina, before transferring to Division III St. Mary’s for his sophomore season.“When I saw him play, I realized he may not be, because of his size, recruited heavily by Division I coaches,” said Jay Gardiner, who coached at St. Mary’s from 1984–91. “But he turned out to be a great small college player. He had great leadership, had tremendous quickness and had tremendous court sense.”In Hillsman’s junior season, St. Mary’s and York College of Pennsylvania were tied in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinal game with less than 10 seconds to go. He was double- or triple-teamed, backing away 7 or 8 feet and falling out of bounds, when he threw up a 3-pointer that miraculously fell through and gave the Seahawks a victory.“(It) may be the greatest 3-point shot I’ve ever been around as a coach,” Gardiner said.In the tournament championship against Marymount (Maryland), St. Mary’s trailed by 10 points with seven minutes to go in regulation, but, led by Hillsman and teammate Jason Slaughter, the Seahawks came back for a runaway victory.“He was a little, quick guard,” Slaughter said. “… But he could score if he had to. There was no doubt about that.”Hillsman finished his college career ranked third (330) in assists and eighth (130) in steals at St. Mary’s, and also set the school’s single-game and season assist record. More importantly, he also left with knowledge of how to run Gardiner’s motion offense and methods of how to space the floor — which he now does at SU with four-guard lineups and a quicker tempo.After college, Hillsman played on U.S. traveling teams to Ireland and Iceland, where he learned more about spacing. But an injured back ended his career, and so began a career in coaching.As an assistant for Gina Castelli at Siena (New York), Hillsman worked with the team’s guards on individual skill development and oversaw the team’s camps. But the years that Hillsman was at Siena, the team had numerous injuries, often leaving the team with eight or nine players for practice.“He had a lot of good input in terms of strategy, of what worked and what didn’t,” Castelli said. “We joked with Q because, I felt like every time I came to him about doing something different, he said, ‘Yeah, we did that.’“He had a background in everything.”At Syracuse, Hillsman has occasionally run with the team in five-on-five drills and often challenges his players to shooting competitions.“I won more times, although I’m sure he is going to disagree with that,” Michael said.At a recent Syracuse practice, Hillsman stopped a drill, took the ball from Peterson and demonstrated how he wanted her to communicate a specific set.“You’re a point guard. Let her know you’re there,” Hillsman told Peterson, referring to an SU teammate.It’s an underlying idea that has gotten Hillsman to where he is today. As a player and point guard, Hillsman’s job was to support his teammates and make those around him look better.Hillsman continues to have those values, just in a different position on the floor.“When you make the transition from high school to college, playing at a high level, you take all that experience with you into coaching,” Hillsman said. “I’ve taken a little bit from every coach I played for.” Comments Published on January 22, 2015 at 12:25 am Contact Josh: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgJames Franklin answers questions from reporters after he was introduced as Penn State’s new football coach during a news conference on Jan. 11, in State College, Pa. Franklin, who turns 42 next month, is the first permanent African-American head football ever at Penn State. (AP Photo/John Beale)STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — James Franklin grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs, a strong-willed if not exactly strong-armed high school quarterback who believed he was good enough to play at Penn State.Joe Paterno’s coaching staff didn’t exactly agree, and while Franklin’s arm led to him a decorated career at Division II East Stroudsburg (Pa.), his will led him to the place he wanted to be all along.Home.More than two decades after a futile attempt to draw Penn State’s attention as a player, the university hired the charismatic 41-year-old as its next head coach on Saturday.Franklin, who turns 42 next month, also is the first permanent African-American head football ever at Penn State.“I’m a Pennsylvania boy,” Franklin said, “with a Penn State heart.”“My dad is from Pittsburgh, so I would spend all my summers and holidays in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Franklin added.“My dad was from the Hill District, Bedford Avenue. I grew up just outside of Philadelphia in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.”.One charged with continuing the painstaking and sometimes painful rebuilding process started by Bill O’Brien, who took over in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal more than two years ago.But O’Brien bolted for the NFL’s Houston Texans on New Year’s Eve, opening the door for Franklin, who breathed life into a moribund program at Vanderbilt, winning 24 games over three seasons and leading the Commodores to three straight bowl games.More will be expected here — eventually. That’s fine by Franklin, who insists he didn’t sign the six-year contract reportedly worth around $4.5 million a season to use the Nittany Lions as a stepping stone.Franklin littered his hour-long introduction with all the right touches. Wearing a blue suit with a blue-and-white tie, he called Penn State his “dream job” and dubbed Saturday “the best day of my life” before quickly amending it to the “third best” after his wedding day to his wife Fumi and the birth of their twin daughters Addy and Shola.Pointing to his family as they watched from the front row, Franklin described himself as having “two daughters and 95 new sons.”Penn State’s new football coach James Franklin prepares to catch a football from his daughter, Addison, 5, after being introduced during an NCAA college football news conference at Beaver Stadium, Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, in State College, Pa. Holding her father’s hand is Shola, 6. (AP Photo/John Beale)Yet he knows the branches of the family tree run far deeper. He promised to reconnect the glorious past with what he believes is an ambitious future and vowed to have lunch with every provost and dean while pledging not to turn down any speaking engagement.“We’ll do everything we can to bring this community back together,” he said, “and really take pride in this program.”A pride still in the process of healing following the shocking revelations about Sandusky’s criminal behavior and the subsequent fallout that included Paterno’s unceremonious firing after 45 years at the helm. Then, there were the near-fatal NCAA sanctions that stripped the program of dozens of scholarships and barred the school from postseason competition for four years.As far as O’Brien brought Penn State in two years, leading Penn State to a 15-9 record and ushering the Nittany Lions fully into the 21st century, much work remains to be done. The standard isn’t to merely be competitive.Scanning a throng that dwarfed anything Franklin ever saw at Vanderbilt in a facility that in many ways rivals the jewels found in places like Alabama and Oregon, Franklin left little doubt as to his intentions.“Our plan is to go out and win a bunch of games,” he said, “so we can stay here a long time.”It’s something Franklin insists he planned on doing at Vanderbilt, where he produced one of the more stirring turnarounds in recent college football history.  The Commodores went 16-4 over his final 20 games, second only to Alabama over that span in the SEC. Vanderbilt won the final seven games of 2012 and the final five of 2013.And, Franklin led Vanderbilt into the final Associated Press poll each of the past two seasons, including No. 24 in the rankings released Tuesday.As impressive as Franklin’s credentials may be, Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner believes they put Franklin through the “most thorough vetting process of any search perhaps of any position at this university.”last_img read more
