A manor is an extremely important phenomenon for the Polish identity. For hundreds of years manors have been a characteristic element of the Polish landscape, a depositary of the Polish history and culture, centres of the gentry ethos and customs as well as national traditions and the struggle for the Polish identity. Almost since the very beginning of the state they had been built first as defensive knights dwellings, and later, since the middle of the seventeenth century, as modest – in comparison with palaces – residences of landowners. As compared to other European countries, there were relatively many small landed gentry mansions in Poland. One major threat to our culture and identity in Europe that started after 1939 is the process of removing historical manor houses and parks from the Polish landscape, what implies blurring of patriotic gentry values in the collective consciousness of the society. Polish manors demonstrate a great variety of architectural concepts implemented in different historical periods.Save this picture!Courtesy of Biuro Architektoniczne Barycz & SaramowiczSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Courtesy of Biuro Architektoniczne Barycz & SaramowiczSave this picture!First floor planIn Grębynice near Kraków, next to the Valley of the Prądnik River and an enclave of the Ojcowski National Park with the ojcowska birch (Betula pendula var. oycowiensis), the world endemit, the Barycz and Saramowicz Architectural Office has built another villa. The area has important historical and cultural aspects here. In the neighbourhood there is the Korzkiew Castle, former Knights’ stronghold dating back to the fourteenth century. Significance of the nearby town of Ojców, a popular health resort but also the centre of national revival on the borders of the then territory under the Russian rule, at the beginning of the last century, is invaluable.Save this picture!Courtesy of Biuro Architektoniczne Barycz & SaramowiczHence the villa in Grębynice has been given a form which is a far intellectual transposition of the massive archetype of a Polish manor. The building is a modern version of a country house out of town. It has been built using modern methods, relevant to the aesthetic sense of modernity. However, created with the use of state-of-the-art means of architectural expression and wonderful possibilities of modern technology, is by no means a copy of an international style. It is a creative reference to the Polish building tradition.Save this picture!Courtesy of Biuro Architektoniczne Barycz & SaramowiczThe villa has a compact, rectangular, slightly elongated floor shape. The archetypal expression of the building and certain symmetry of the composition, with fragments of the construction extended on the sides, recall the shape of the Polish manor house, with a front porch and alcoves. The villa has been built on the archetypal plan of a Polish manor, but everything else in it is modern. The walls of the building being a combination of limestone and quartz sinter are innovative. So is the shiny roof, which gives the house an unearthly, cosmic look. The abstract physiognomy of the villa has been multiplied by its material definition, where the appearance of the roof and the walls has been harmonised and is identical both texturally and chromatically. A stone cladding made of crushed Jura limestone corresponds with the quartz sinter with a vertical print of wooden formwork. The boundary between the plane of the walls and the roof has been obliterated.The unified, homogeneous form of the villa looks like a prototype embedded in the natural environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of Biuro Architektoniczne Barycz & SaramowiczProject gallerySee allShow lessEvent Hall in Etyek / kissmiklosSelected ProjectsApparel B / void design officeSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

TÚSLA Area Manager Jim Gibson. David Clynch – PhotographyCHILDREN in foster care in Limerick have been left at massive risk with 146 people either fostering or living with them who have not been approved by Gardaí.A report from HIQUA, the health services watchdog, highlighted significant shortfalls in the service, with 30 foster parents and 116 people over the age of 16 in foster homes that were not Garda vetted.Inspections also revealed that allegations of abuse or neglect were not being managed correctly and in a timely fashion, there was a shortfall in recruitment and therefore in the number of foster carers and no social workers allocated to support foster parents in many cases.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The report states that “not all allegations were comprehensively assessed. There was a system for formally notifying the foster care committee of an allegation of abuse, but not all allegations were reported to the committee and those which were notified, were not notified in a timely way”.A team of eight inspectors visited foster homes in the Mid West last March and their findings showed three areas of major non-compliance. These were in relation to safeguarding and child protection; supervision and support and reviews of foster carers”.The report states that inspectors also found major problems with supervision and support. 30 general and six relative foster carers had no social worker assigned to them, while the majority had not received the recommended formal supervision.“There were seven foster care households without a link worker who also had children who were without an allocated social worker, which posed a significant risk. The frequency of home visits to these foster carers was insufficient.“Where foster carers were allocated a social worker, there was not a sufficient level of home visits to ensure supervision and support to foster carers. Records of discussions between foster carers and social workers following home visits were of mixed quality. There was no out-of-hours service available to meet the needs of foster carers.”Crucially, the report discovered that the majority of reviews “did not contain evidence that the views of the child were sought”.In response to a query from the Limerick Post as to whether Gardaí vetting was completed in the six months since the report was published, a spokesperson for TUSLA said: “Garda vetting is actively being progressed for foster carers and those over 16, where necessary. Additionally, there is a system in place to alert staff when updated Garda vetting is due”.Tusla chief operations officer Jim Gibson said that HIQA inspection reports were an important measurement tool and allowed them ensure that their services were continuously improving and were of a high standard.“The report highlighted excellent practice in areas such as training and the quality of assessments of foster carers. There were also a number of areas that require improvement such as supervision and the timeliness of reviews. These areas are being actively addressed through a comprehensive action plan which has been submitted to HIQA.“The actions in the action plan will be closely linked to Tusla’s major transformation programme which will enhance many aspects of the agency, including organisational culture, HR strategy, governance systems, and further corporate functions.” When the Limerick Post contacted HIQUA, a spokesperson could not say whether Garda vetting had taken place in the six months since the inspections.Limerick Labour Party TD Jan O’Sullivan said the report raised serious concerns.“I am particularly concerned that there was no Garda vetting of family members in many cases. It is just not acceptable that vulnerable children are living in homes where no Garda vetting has been carried out on people living in that household.She said the report confirmed the acute shortage of social workers which was an issue she has been campaigning on.“There is an urgent need to recruit more social workers and to put measures in place to retain those already in the service. As well as a shortage of social workers, there is also a shortage of foster carers in the Mid-West.”Deputy O’Sullivan added that “while it is encouraging that an action plan has been put in place and we are fortunate to have so many dedicated and caring foster families, it is essential that the issues of vetting and shortage of social workers are given urgent attention”.Visit the Limerick Post News section for similar news.

first_img It’s kind of a non-musical Mamma Mia!, in a way, isn’t it? [Laughs.] Hah, yes, and that was also written and directed by women. There’s certainly something about seeing a show built around women by women, which really is a rarity. Tamzin Outhwaite, your third cast member, hasn’t played Mary. Do you think she feels left out? [Laughs.] I’m not sure how much Sondheim she’s done, so perhaps we should give her a push! But what’s great about the three of us in this play is that having experienced quite a bit of life, Jenna, Tamzin, and I feel as if we can get that much more out of the material—at least we hope we can. Tell me about going from Merrily We Roll Along, about a three-way friendship, to another piece about a three-way friendship. It’s fascinating, isn’t it? There were moments where we did actually break into song, especially because Jenna has of course also played Mary [in Merrily] herself. When I played Mary [in 2000], I was so young and I’m not sure the material resonated for me the way it does now; it’s wonderful having three women in their forties getting to tell this kind of story. It feels as if we are going on a complete journey every night. Why was that? Because if singing was really my thing, I might have lost my nerve, especially since when I did Merrily, the fact that I was doing a musical felt like a one-off. But I quickly decided to approach [Fanny Brice] so that it was about playing the part and it ended up being one of the great jobs I’ve done, partly because I couldn’t imagine having ever gotten to that point! The characters are an interesting mix: sporty lesbian Di, free-spirited Rose, and reined-in Viv. How does their dynamic feel to you? I think Amelia [Bullmore, playwright] has captured something brilliantly in this play, which is that the characters may not seem that well-suited to one another, but there’s something about the three of them as young human beings that needs one another and Rose [Russell’s character] is actually the one that brings them together so it all starts to work. View Comments Samantha Spiro has two Olivier Awards to her name, first for playing Mary in the Michael Grandage-directed Donmar production of Merrily We Roll Along and then for her irrepressible Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly! in 2009 at the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park. But the gifted actress is no stranger to non-musicals as can be seen from her sterling work at the Vaudeville Theatre in Amelia Bullmore’s Di and Viv and Rose, playing the starchy English careerist, Viv, who forges a new and happier life for herself in New York. The delightful Spiro took time one recent afternoon to reflect on her own career, which on this occasion includes co-starring with another onetime Mary from Merrily, Jenna Russell.center_img You’ve played two roles associated with Barbra Streisand—Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at Chichester, and of course, Dolly Levi. Both of those situations completely bowled me over at the thought of doing them! I was absolutely scared shitless about doing Funny Girl: it felt such a humongous arc at times, and I had just given birth to my second child and hadn’t done a musical for years so to take on such an iconic role, I was scared but then thought I had absolutely nothing to lose. Is there any more Sondheim in your future? I certainly hope so! I remember when he arrived at rehearsals for Merrily and walked into the room and then said, “God has arrived,” and of course it felt as if God really had arrived; meeting him was overwhelming. I suppose Mrs. Lovett has got to be fairly high up my list, though it can’t be for quite a few years now after that brilliant production with Imelda [Staunton]. But one lives in hope! And Dolly? Oh, that was just an absolute joy, though in a way I was ridiculously young to be playing it. But the thing about Dolly is that she’s someone you can carry on playing through life as we know from the wonderful Carol Channing, who is probably still playing Dolly somewhere right now [laughs]. There are times, though, when you think the friendship is on the verge of breaking down. Yes, and the thing about playing someone like Viv, as I am, is that she’s not incredibly tactile or generous. She listens to people but she isn’t always very positive about them. Her work is probably the most important thing to her and it’s not until the end, and once she experiences loss, that she realizes friendship is something she cannot afford to lose. Of the three characters, do you see yourself as most naturally a Viv? Anna [Mackmin, director] very much wanted me to play Viv. I read it and thought they had mentioned the wrong character. I felt maybe I was more naturally a Rose but the thing about Viv is that there’s this incredible payoff in the second half that brings with it an energy and freedom. So the more I spoke to Anna, the more I felt this would be a great challenge.last_img read more
