Tectonics acquires a truly artistic character to the extent that it amounts to a poetics of construction… The inevitable ground nature of a building has a character so tectonic and tactile as scenic and visual, although none of these attributes denies its spatiality. ” Supported on the foundational role that the discipline of architecture has within the modern tradition, we understood that it was necessary to develop a thought process capable of relating the many particular factors that shape the problem of the discipline. Kenneth Frampton has developed ​​the problem of tectonic construction stressing space when he cites the ideas of Schmarsow, who perceives architecture as the progressive unfolding of man’s feeling about space, and identifies it as a guiding principle of all architectural form, coinciding with space-time models of the universe in the scientific sense, where science affects the way that space is conceived, reinforced by the experience of speed and mechanical inventions of the last half century. Since then, Kenneth Frampton says in his book of tectonic culture studies, “we are unable to think architecturally without special emphasis on the spatial movement of the subject in time.” Save this picture!Courtesy of Ventura ViziFor Zumthor, atmosphere is an aesthetic category, an emotional sensitivity. In his work, he shows the body of architecture, the consonance of materials, the sound of the space, its temperature, the tension between inside and outside, the degrees of privacy and light on things. Peter Zumthor says in his book Atmospheres: … “in my job, there must be a procedure, some interest, some instruments, some tools. We do not work with form, we work with other things, with sound, noise, materials, construction, anatomy, etc. From the start, the body of architecture is construction, anatomy, building logic … ” Juan Román, director of the School of Architecture at the University of Talca, conducted research entitled “Towards an architecture with interest”, based on the idea of Project Research, and attempts to prove the extent of the relationship between research and design, assuming that professional work is a constant back and forth between the two concepts, resulting in an architecture with interest. Once past the design stage, the process will leave the path of Project Research, to move on to the known construction stage, with the condition of building with local materials. Save this picture!Brick AxonometricIn Brick House, we have understood construction as a structure of thought that involves matter, and is able to address the issues inherent in architectural space, deepening on the logic and coherence of the design process. The objectification of the thought process and its construction determined the different sensations and qualities of the spaces. Within this operational logic, we worked on architectural structure that manifested as the order with the possibility to generate architectural space. It is about a conceptualization is tectonic terms, involving both the problem of the relationship between weights, stresses, and materials, as well as the shapes and human requirements. These tectonic structures also included sensory, psychological, and phenomenological experiences, and their effects on emotions, behaviors, representations, symbolic configurations and meanings. The construction of the house was developed from the choice of brick, along with steel and concrete, as the material approach to the problem of tectonics. The “use” of the house was understood as a program resulting from the actions of domestic nature such as: being, convey, observe, relax, cook, eat, sleep, etc … Save this picture!Courtesy of Ventura ViziWe developed the interaction of these uses as an experiment where spatial construction was the ultimate end to establish new configurations (also spatial) capable of being built in a single-family house of 90m2, and a site area of 75 m2. We have developed a plan that generates cross ventilation in all areas, allowing the prevailing winds from the north to facilitate a decrease in temperature and humidity in the summer, improving comfort conditions, and reducing the energy demand. We have also adopted traditional building materials in Argentina that have good thermal insulation, including glazed panels with aluminum frames and double glazing.

Diligent to Become Largest Global GRC SaaS Company through Galvanize Acquisition

first_img Facebook NEW YORK & VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– Diligent Corporation (“Diligent” or the “Company”), the modern governance company with a platform used by nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders, across 19,000 clients, today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Galvanize, a global leader in SaaS governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) software. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The Galvanize transaction follows Diligent’s planned acquisition of Steele Compliance Solutions, Inc. (“Steele”) a leader in ethics and compliance SaaS, which the Company signed in February 2021. Both transactions are expected to close in March. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: With the acquisition of Galvanize, Diligent will become the largest SaaS GRC provider. The combined solution with enrichment from Steele will enable an integrated GRC picture – from Audit, Risk, Information Security, Ethics and Compliance across the organization directly to the CEO, CFO and Board. Customers will benefit from a powerful operating system that enables governance programs organization-wide, backed by trusted concierge level customer support with NPS scores over 50. Galvanize, the only company with comprehensive “Leader” recognition from both Gartner and Forrester analysts, brings the only integrated cloud GRC platform powered by robotic data automation across security, risk management, compliance, and audit software for 6,000 global customers in 130 countries, including more than half of the Fortune 1000 and S&P 500.

More than ever, they need an integrated view of data and information, as well as clear visibility and confidence for decision-making, to effectively maximize performance and mitigate risk,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “Risk and Compliance data traditionally sits in disparate systems across audit, compliance and risk functions and make it difficult and laborious to combine into one view for the CFO, CEO and Board.
