The House of Prajna seems like a vessel heading for the woods, embraced by the forest, with the pentagon shape of building site reminding of that of ship. On the bow of ship shape, a persimmon tree over hundred year old branches its arms toward the large sky with hollowed trunk.  Although this house is a result of intentional design, I feel like it is already been completed by thousands of interactions of invisible components. Every time I visit, I feel like appreciating the work of someone else’s.   Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe house is located in Gwacheon near Seoul. Gwacheon has been playing a role of government city, and praised for an ideal place for living. Other houses in the district, line along the street a bit apart from each other, and the surrounding woods enclave the town like a blanket. The site feels cozy. Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimAt first, the owner of the house, a middle aged couple, said in tranquil but clear tone that they have four family members, have a dog and want to have a separate workroom distinctive from the living place. They bought the land ten years ago, and other lots around the site have been already filled out. Lastly, they wanted to preserve the awesome persimmon tree. Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe word ‘Prajna’ originally comes from Sanskrit which means wisdom. The meaning of wisdom could be broadened to signify the ideal state of acknowledging the world without any barrier. Thus, the ‘Prajna’ also means a ‘wisdom which can be attained after the true sense of realization about the whole living things.’ Save this picture!© Yong Kwan Kim Distinctive from other religions, Buddhism aims for pursuing the realization instead of salvation for the next world or wealth of earthly life. Achieving ‘prajna’ through realization is the main purpose of the Buddhism. The realizations comes from looking back, observing the world with a transitory pause. Putting a pause in the middle of rushing life gives the opportunity to purify the distorted confusions originating from one’s desires.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimArchitecture is not far from this process for it creates the way to permeate both the life and thoughts, and a house contains the both family and thoughts of the family. These thoughts help to imagine the images of floor and garden, but the result is not always predictable because the harmonization of several factors. Some are not even clear as to what they are.         Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe main theme of this house is an ‘insight meditation.’ There are several reasons why exclusive space for meditation has been located in the center of the house. The owner of the house studies Buddhism in his spare time and needs a place for a sitting meditation, and also his wife has been practicing tea ceremony for many years. Thus, I located the meditation room in the center, and only aftwerwards I designed other parts of the house, such as living place, dining room and bathroom.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimEach part of the house is gradually raised, taking advantage of the trait of land, with northern part getting higher than the road. And this also creates a sense of place to each function.Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimAfter that, I added the other necessary functions of the house in a spiral composition as if ‘samsara’ were manifested in the Buddhism. Separated parts of the house gather toward the center where persimmon tree stand, but then they are also fragmented at the same time. Then, we drew a line with the corridor which penetrates the whole house, cutting through each room, garden, and terrace. In other words, the beginning and end, inside and outside of the house are all connected to each other. In the center of the house, under the persimmon tree, there is a tiny room, hardly fitting one person, used for meditation.  Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimThe House of Prajna also blurs the boundary of inside and outside. The house is intertwined with the woods, and the owner takes a place near the mountain like a hermit, and contemplates the outside world from inside the house.  Save this picture!© Yong Kwan Kim The ultimate pursuit of Buddhism is to ‘realize’. This realization enables people to escape from the boundless desires by unlimited wisdom. Everything is connected to each other. Hence there is no absolute image or location. Every existence could be substantial or shallow, and soul or body simultaneously. Save this picture!© Yong Kwan KimHouse could be a space of presenting the journey of completing our imperfection, enabling us to ‘realize’ and be wise.

first_imgCosta Rica’s fairy tale will extend to a quarter-final against Holland on Saturday after goalkeeper Keylor Navas’s penalty shoot-out heroics eliminated Greece here.It was Michael Umaña who scored the winning penalty for Costa Rica, their fifth, after Theofanis Gekas’s strike had been repelled by Navas’s strong hand — the only miss of the shoot-out.“Last night, I dreamt, this, it seems untrue,” Umana said. “I was relaxed because I dreamed it. I dreamed it but I didn’t tell anyone. I felt very confident.“This is for my family. It’s for the colleagues who got injured before coming here. They’re not with us, but they gave us a hand on the pitch.”While Umana was euphoric, there was also relief for the Costa Ricans, who had been forced to play for 54 minutes with 10 men after the 66th-minute dismissal of Oscar Duarte.They were leading at that point through a 52nd-minute Bryan Ruiz goal, but had to endure long periods of pressure before the Greeks secured an equaliser in stoppage time at the end of 90 minutes But though Greece went on to dominate the extra period, Fernando Santos’s team were unable to finish off the exhausted Central Americans and Navas and Umana secured shoot-out victory.With it, they ended any fear that Costa Rica, who became only the third Concacaf nation after the United States (twice) and Cuba, to qualify for the World Cup quarter-finals on foreign soil, would freeze on the big stage.Yes, they had beaten Italy and Uruguay and held England to a goalless draw while qualifying as winners of Group D, but the opportunity to surpass the tiny country’s heroes ofItalia 90, who made it to the second round, was a moment of history which for much of the game appeared to weigh heavily on the Costa Ricans.There was little freedom to their play, despite the best efforts of the creative Ruiz and energetic forward Joel Campbell. Greece were able to suffocate the game and turn it into a battle of attrition. As they proved when winning Euro 2004, Greece are the masters of shutting a game down and maximising any glint of a chance that comes their way. The Greek triumph 10 years ago in Portugal was achieved despite scoring just seven goals in six games, while none of their seven victories at major tournaments had been by more than one clear goal.Santos, the coach whose contract expires today, has bristled at suggestions his team are dull and destructive, but there has been little evidence that Greece have added a creative edge to their game that has been absent for over a decade.However, what they do, they do well and it would be unfair to dismiss the disciplined defensive qualities the Greeks possess. Their approach certainly stifled Los Ticos, with Christian Bolaños the only player to go close to testing Greek goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis during a stultifying first half.It was Greece who carved out the better chances before the interval, Lazaros Christodoulopoulos and Georgios Karagounis going close from long range before Dimitrios Salpingidis was denied on 37 minutes when Navas produced a crucial save from the PAOK midfielder. The breakthrough that the game desperately needed came seven minutes into the second half, however, when Ruiz stroked the ball into the net from 20 yards.Clever build-up play by Campbell had released Bolaños down the left before the midfielder pulled the ball back for the Costa Rica captain. Ruiz appeared to have some work to do if he was to test the Greek goalkeeper, but after being left unmarked, he guided a left-foot shot into the far corner of the net, with Karnezis rooted to the spot as the ball trickled past him.The goal energised the Costa Ricans and they were unfortunate not to be handed the chance to double their lead within a minute when Dimitrios Salpingidis handled a cross in the penalty area.Australian referee Benjamin Williams missed the incident — a failure which appeared to unsettle the official, who proceeded to issue an array of cards in an attempt to reassert his authority.One of them, a second yellow awarded to Duarte for a foul on Jose Holebas, gave Greece renewed vigour, although it took another 24 minutes before Sokratis stunned the Central Americans by bundling in an equaliser to take the game into extra-time.Greece went closest to winning the game in the extra period, but Kostas Mitroglou spurned two clear chances. It came down to a test of nerve from 12 yards, though, and it was Los Ticos who came out on top.last_img read more


first_imgFacebook57Tweet0Pin2 Submitted by Thurston County Solid Waste You know that old television you don’t use anymore, but aren’t really sure what to do with? Well, it’s actually considered hazardous waste. The same is true of all electronics, which typically contain a host of toxic materials, including lead, cadmium and mercury. Most electronics, or “e-waste,” that people get rid of, though, really aren’t waste at all.Electronics are made up of many different component parts, including precious metals, plastics and glass. When electronics are recycled these raw materials can actually be reused and turned into new products. While the recycling process does require the use of energy and other natural resources, it requires far less than the extraction of new materials for manufacturing.Extraction is the process of removing raw materials from the earth to be processed into products, and it can be an energy-intensive and potentially environmentally hazardous process. When we recycle our electronic waste we are not only keeping toxic waste out of our landfills, but also helping to conserve our precious natural resources.This is where the E-Cycle program comes in. In Washington State, there are many options for recycling several types of electronics, thanks to a product stewardship law that went into effect in 2009. This law requires electronics manufacturers to pay to recycle their products at the end of their useful lives. This successful program has helped to recycle over 10,000 tons of electronics over the past five years. Local and state governments, retailers, manufacturers, collectors and nonprofit groups work together to ensure that potentially hazardous electronic waste is not getting dumped in our landfills.Items accepted in the E-Cycle program include televisions, computers, monitors, laptops, tablets, e-readers and portable DVD players. Households, small businesses, schools & school districts, small governments, special purpose districts, and charities can use the free service. The majority of these items that E-Cycle collects are recycled and processed right here in the state, while the rest are shipped to other facilities approved for e-waste recycling. None of the materials recycled through E-Cycle Washington are exported to third-world countries, even the items considered obsolete. Instead, they are taken apart and separated into their useful materials which are then sold as commodities and turned into new products. You can read more about E-Cycle’s policies and find an E-Cycle drop-off site near you by visiting their website at www.ecyclewashington.org or by calling 1-800-RECYCLE.Best Buy and Staples also provide free recycling services for small electronics that might not be covered by E-Cycle, including cell phones, printer cartridges, GPS, MP3 players, CD’s or DVD’s and any computer peripherals (keyboards, mice, cords, etc.) You can visit their websites to learn more about the specifics of each of their recycling programs. The Thurston County Solid Waste database at www.WhereDoITakeMy.org  is a great resource if you are wondering what do to with not only electronics but anything from mattresses, to barbecues to those old railroad ties you have hanging around!last_img read more
