SNOW 5319 is a neighborhood living facility construction built in the back alley that has stepped back from the border between the bustling Nonhyeon-dong and Cheongdam-dong. An alley with a mixture of old and newly built buildings (that are no longer maintained) is a place where diversity and congestion coexist. From bricks to stone tiles and concrete exposures, the exterior wall materials and color selection used in the building was a difficult task in this alley affecting the landscape with various exterior wall materials. Through constant meetings with the owners, the color of the exterior wall was decided as white, which can be the basis of the structure as it is, and white will serve as a milestone in the landscape of the alley.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinSave this picture!Ground Floor planSave this picture!© Hyosook ChinThe owner couples, who run their design company, wanted simple and concise for their building. The issue was, the direction of the new building considering the shape of the city street and the requirements of the owner, and white was proposed as the exterior wall material and overall color through many meetings with the owner. To further enhance the simplicity of white, 3mm ceramic tiles with light and thin physical properties were decided as exterior wall materials, and for some layers, aluminum expanded metal and polycarbonate, similar to the properties of white, was used.Save this picture!Courtesy of UTAAThe owners of the five-story office who requested a detached top-floor house shown a concise and neat tendency to close most of the interior of the house in white, according to the color of the exterior of the building. The keyword ‘white’, which began from the interpretation of the street, was completed with the whole interior choices by the neat and concise couples.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinSave this picture!Right elevationSave this picture!© Hyosook ChinWhile addressing Northward architectural slant line restriction for daylight and various restrictions in the residential area as maximizing the exclusive living space, the shadows of the masses on each floor were exquisitely adjusted to give the building a richer depth to the scenery of the alley. And the gaze would stay on the street. The mass on the second floor was slightly twisted towards the road to be a milestone. The space that was pushed out on each floor created by the architectural slant line restriction for daylight was transformed of an external terrace that can be used independently by the residents.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinThe terrace installed on all floors is referred to the healthy space that allows office workers on each floor to transfer between interior and exterior spaces and staying in the terrace allows them to feel away from work for a moment and feel urban life. In particular, the terrace on the front of the 2nd floor uses expanded metal to give a proper distance to the street, and polycarbonate as the interior light for the house on the top floor protects individual privacy as well as makes possible active communication toward the street line.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinProject gallerySee allShow less8.5 House / DOGSelected ProjectsShenzhen Yunhai School / AUBE CONCEPTIONSelected Projects Share 2019 HI Structural Engineers Electrical Engineering: South Korea CopyMixed Use Architecture, Houses, Office Buildings•Gangnam-gu, South Korea SNOW 5319 Office and House / UTAASave this projectSaveSNOW 5319 Office and House / UTAA Codam Chang Gyun Kim Photographs: Hyosook Chin Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeUTAAOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesOffice buildingsGangnam-guOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on April 27, 2020Cite: “SNOW 5319 Office and House / UTAA ” 26 Apr 2020.

July 1, 2020 2,367 Views Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tim Mayopoulos is the President of Blend, a Silicon Valley technology company propelling the $40 trillion consumer banking industry into the digital age through partnerships with banks, lenders, and other technology providers. Before joining Blend in 2019, Tim served as President and CEO of Fannie Mae for more than six years.Under his leadership, the company returned to sustained profitability, delivered more than $167 billion in dividends to taxpayers, and introduced new technologies to the housing finance system to make mortgage lending faster, safer and more transparent. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago What does Quicken’s decision say about the state of FinTech in housing?There’s clearly a great demand for technological innovation in the mortgage industry. The idea that Quicken is looking at going public is a confirmation of that. There are many technology providers in the space. Most of them are venture capital-backed companies like ours, Blend, and as demand for financial technology continues, these companies continue to proliferate. There’s a desire on the part of consumers to be able to apply for a mortgage and have it be a comparable experience to what they do on Amazon, or what they experience when they use their iPhone, or what they do when they watch movies on Netflix. Consumers expect that applying for a mortgage should be no different than any other consumer transaction. It should be simple, and elegant, and efficient, and fast, and it should help lenders lower costs.There are clearly consumer expectations around this, but what I’ve noticed is that the expectations of lenders have also changed. They recognize that they can be much more efficient, they can be more cost-effective, they can create a differentiated experience for their customers, the borrower. Share Save Home / Daily Dose / The Rise of Fintech in Housing 2020-07-01 Mike Albanese Subscribe What was your reaction to the Quicken Loans IPO?Well, my initial reaction was that it’s not every day that you see a mono-line mortgage lender file to become a public company but then as I reflected on it, I think it makes sense for Quicken to be doing what it’s doing. It’s obviously achieved a leadership position and it has good market conditions in which to do an IPO, with interest rates low and expected to be low for the foreseeable future. Mortgage origination on the refi side should continue to be pretty high and the purchase market should be strong as well, at least once we get through the pandemic. There is an imbalance in supply and demand in housing markets, so we should expect there to be home price appreciation and continued demand for homes. We’ve got the biggest generation in history, the millennials, coming of age, and they all express the same desire for homeownership as previous generations. There’s just been a chronic shortage of housing creation in the country over more than the last decade. The macro market conditions for Quicken are very favorable.Quicken has been successful in growing and in differentiating itself from other lenders. Quicken is as much a technology company as it is a mortgage lending company and they’ve been innovators in the technology space. Because they have established a unique value proposition for the market, they may have an opportunity that’s appealing to IPO investors.

Quicken has, for some time, been a catalyst for change in the mortgage industry. I remember when I was the CEO of Fannie Mae, Quicken Loans announced Rocket Mortgage, which at the time might’ve been more hype than reality. The good thing about that was that it set a new standard in the industry. It really awakened a lot of people’s ideas as to what consumers would and could expect in terms of a more digital and more automated origination process. That has served as a catalyst for the entire industry, including the FinTech industry supporting mortgage, to pursue that ultimate goal. The conditions are very favorable for FinTech companies going forward in housing finance to continue to drive towards that aspiration and to continue to attract capital.

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. How will this pandemic impact the use of technology within the mortgage and housing markets?The pandemic is an additional accelerant on the transformational change that’s happening in housing finance. We’ve seen this underway for quite some time. Consumers want to be able to apply for a loan and have it fulfilled from anywhere, including from their couch in their pajamas if they want to. The pandemic is only reinforcing those consumer expectations. More importantly, the pandemic has taught the mortgage industry, which has historically been very conservative and cautious about change, that a lot of change can actually be achieved in a relatively short period of time, very effectively. It was just a few months ago that the entire industry essentially decided to go operate remotely, and many people wondered whether the industry would be able to adapt to that. What we found is that the industry largely was able to be nimble and meet changing consumer expectations and needs to a large extent.We at Blend have been working with our lender customers to respond to challenges created by the pandemic, specifically in the areas of managing the huge influx of refinance volume through process automation, and perhaps even more importantly on providing fully digital closings.Understandably, consumers don’t necessarily want to have appraisers show up at their homes during a pandemic, and they certainly don’t want to go to an in-person closing with a room full of people. This illustrates the pivot that everybody in the industry needed to make an order to be able to continue to operate their businesses in a new way. Working remotely has given the industry newfound confidence that technological change can actually be adopted quickly, and effectively, and in relatively short order. It’s going to reduce some of the reticence, some of the conservatism, that the industry has historically shown towards adopting new ways of doing things. Apart from the public health issues themselves, the pandemic has created a little bit of an experiment where lenders and others in the housing finance system have had to adapt to new circumstances very quickly. They have found that they can do that and that technology can help drive that change very effectively.There clearly was already a lot of momentum underway in the mortgage industry towards becoming more technologically advanced. I think the pandemic is going to accelerate that tenfold because people see that not only is it possible, but it’s actually more easily achievable than many might have thought.

iStock(PHILADELPHIA) — A Philadelphia man is in custody after allegedly confessing to the murder of a woman who has been missing for 16 years, prosecutors said.The arrest of Jade Babcock, 49, came after a tip in the 2003 missing person’s case of Brenda Jacobs, according to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.The tip — which Lycoming County District Attorney Kenneth Osokow said came Monday — led to the discovery this week of human remains in a storage facility in Northeast Philadelphia.The remains are suspected to be of Jacobs, who was believed to be in a relationship with Babcok, said Osokow.Jacobs, who was about 39 when she went missing, lived in Lycoming County in central Pennsylvania, about 180 miles away from Philadelphia. She had been missing since 2003 but was not reported missing by family until 2013, prosecutors said. Osokow would not comment on why it took so long for the missing person’s case to be filed.Babcock was interviewed in 2013 or 2014 when Jacobs was reported missing, Osokow said, and has now allegedly confessed to Jacobs’ murder, though Osokow would not elaborate.“When there is no swift resolution to an investigation, perpetrators do begin to believe that they can get away with murder,” Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said in a statement. “With the help of our State Police, that won’t be true for Jade Babcock. May those who have been missing and mourning Brenda Jacobs for years know some peace in the very near future.”Babcock was arrested on Tuesday and charged with abuse of a corpse, obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.Philadelphia prosecutors said homicide charges are expected. Osokow said homicide charge determinations “will be made shortly.”Osokow would not comment on a motive and said prosecutors have not yet been informed of Jacobs’ cause and manner of death.Babcock, who is being held without bail, has not yet entered a plea. He is set to return to court for a status hearing on Oct. 18. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Amidst international controversy about the ethics of leaking classified information, whistleblower Chelsea Manning received the 2014 Sam Adams Award for Integrity in Intelligence in absentia this Wedneday in a ceremony at the Oxford Union.Manning, a former US Army private currently serving a 35 year prison sentence, committed perhaps the greatest single leak of classified information ever in 2010.The intelligence she passed on to WikiLeaks is thought to have influenced the 2010 Arab Spring, launched heated worldwide discussion about national security vs. freedom of information, and inspired other whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, who received the Sam Adams Award last year.Wednesday evening’s Oxford Union awards ceremony included a rare video message from Edward Snowden, who congratulated Manning. He stressed that her work highlighted the problem of “overclassification”, where governments use state secrets privilege to withhold information unrelated to national security.>>> Watch a Cherwell interview with the former Director of the CIA and NSA, General Michael Hayden <<
