Poda de árboles semiperennes

Los Ayuntamientos realizan las tareas de poda habitualmente entre los meses de Noviembre y Febrero.  La Tipuana y la Jacaranda son especies arbóreas que realizan un cambio de hoja en primavera verano. Son árboles que necesitan de una poda racional, diferenciada por su tamaño, gran crecimiento y por su tendencia a que cuelguen las ramas inferiores, lo que obliga a realizar al menos dos intervenciones al año, más suaves que las que se muestra en la foto.

Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre Completes as Fifth Tallest Skyscraper in the World

News from CTBUH.

 
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has certified the completion of Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre, located within the burgeoning Zhujiang New Town business district. At 530 meters it is the tallest building in Guangzhou, second tallest in China, and fifth tallest worldwide. Developed by New World Development Company and designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), this supertall skyscraper rounds out a trio of Guangzhou’s tallest structures, including Guangzhou International Finance Center and Canton Tower, all centered around Huacheng Square, the city’s premier urban park and the central axis of Zhujiang New Town.

The mixed-use programming of Guangzhou CTF is reflected in its sculpted form, incorporating setbacks at four major transition points corresponding to internal transitions in programming. The tower’s elevation is defined by a series of subtle terra cotta mullions running the full length of its height, accentuating its verticality. The material selection cleverly references both Chinese architectural traditions and early skyscraper design, and is the tallest application of terra cotta in the world.

Greatings from Mary Ellen Iskenderian President & CEO Women´s World Banking

Dear Friends,

As 2016 draws to a close, we reflect proudly on the impact we and our partners have made in the lives of women this year.  As we celebrate our accomplishments, we are also mindful that changes in the global political landscape have created uncertainty about so many issues, including gender and economic equality.

Thanks to your support and collaboration, we’ve reached 1.5 million women with access to financial services that they did not have before. When women have access and control of these financial products, it means:

  • Fewer women are at risk of falling deeper into poverty;
  • More women are able to reinvest in themselves, their families, and their communities; and
  • More women have decision-making power in their own lives and a louder voice in the world.

Commitment to our mission is more important today than ever before. 

So we welcome 2017 with eager anticipation of the work that lies ahead – work we are uniquely positioned to do.  Fueled by the change we have already created with our partners and clients, we will shift our sights toward even greater impact in 2017 with the goal of solving the most challenging issues in women’s financial inclusion through sustainable, scalable solutions.

The coming year will challenge us to design more solutions, engage more partners, and impact more lives.  Ongoing and growing support of friends who believe in us is vital if we are to succeed.  Your holiday donation is more than a gift; it is an investment in women and a more inclusive world.​​​​​​ Thank you for your commitment to Women’s World Banking.

We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!

Warmest regards,

Mary Ellen
President & CEO

Dubai Authorities Approve Plans for an Observation Tower Poised to become the Tallest Structure in the World

With a goal of opening in time for Dubai’s Expo 2020, the Santiago Calatrava-designed structure was promptly approved by government officials, setting the stage for a condensed construction timeline.

Pergola

sombra-cartuja

La pergola es un elemento del mobiliario urbano que forma parte de la mayoría de los espacios públicos en la zona mediterránea. Los veranos calurosos y secos, invitan a integrar este elemento en el espacio urbano.

La planta es la protagonista por excelencia de la estructura de sombra, aunque todavía hay profesionales que desconocen o ignoran esta circunstancia. Esto provoca que a veces podamos ver en espacios públicos “pergolas muertas”, sin vida, sin plantas.

Una vez definido el elemento soporte, estructural, habrá que definir el contenido de la pérgola (plantas, riego, drenaje, mallas, maceteros, etc). Si la pérgola soportará elementos de comunicación (wifi), sonido (altavoces), iluminación (focos), publicidad (paneles) y sistema de climatización (red de presión y boquillas de nebulización), u otros, habrá que tenerlo en cuenta para que puedan llegar todos los servicios.

Es muy importante definir la estructura que soportará el peso de la vegetación teniendo en cuenta que la estructura quedará integrada y cubierta en gran parte por la vegetación.

La orientación es un factor clave para obtener un buen resultado de superficie de sombra. Siempre la orientación será este-oeste en el sentido longitudinal de la ubicación de las estructuras. De no ser así la sombra proyectada se localizará fuera de la pergola.
