PivotText description provided by the architects. Casa Crucita is a house located within a private residential condominum in Alvarado, Veracruz. The architectural program was given by the clients and was very clear from the beginning, to give priority to social areas.Save this picture!© Apertura ArquitectónicaThe house is divided into 3 levels. From the natural level of the terrain, parking is at a basement placed medium level below of the house where you can find the daily entrance to the house, a small wine cellar and a bathroom. This way it is possible to maximize the area in ground floor, where the house is mainly inhabbited. Finally, at the third level, you will find the service areas.Save this picture!© Apertura ArquitectónicaSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!© Apertura ArquitectónicaThe house seeks to be introverted from the street with high concrete walls, and a natural vegetation wall formed by palms and tropical species. Access to the house is by means of a small stair that rises to the middle level flanked by a water fountain. One enters the house at a height that compresses you, to later expand the to a higher ceiling space. The social area is a totally open plan that opens to a back garden with a terrace and a pool.Save this picture!© Apertura ArquitectónicaSave this picture!Section – 04Save this picture!© Apertura ArquitectónicaProject gallerySee allShow lessXochitlali House / TALCSelected ProjectsSaint Genevieve’s School / Taillandier Architectes AssociésSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Save this picture!© Apertura Arquitectónica+ 19Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/954900/crucita-house-taller-agf Clipboard Photographs:  Apertura Arquitectónica Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: AutoDesk, CASTEL, Indalum, Interceramic, Ladrillera Mecanizada, Trimble Navigation Architects: TALLER AGF Area Area of this architecture project 2019 Crucita House / TALLER AGFSave this projectSaveCrucita House / TALLER AGF Year:  Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Mexico Lead Architect: Photographs Crucita House / TALLER AGF CopyHouses•Alvarado, Mexico Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/954900/crucita-house-taller-agf Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTALLER AGFOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlvaradoOn FacebookMexicoPublished on April 05, 2021Cite: “Crucita House / TALLER AGF” [Casa Crucita / TALLER AGF] 05 Apr 2021.

Middlebury Interactive Languages names Jane Swift CEO

first_imgMiddlebury Interactive Languages (MIL), the premier provider of world language instruction for K-12 students, has named former Massachusetts Governor and national education leader Jane Swift as CEO. Swift brings more than two decades of leadership in education technology, public policy and administration to MIL, a joint venture of Middlebury College, renowned for its world language programs, and K12 Inc., the nation’s largest provider of curriculum and online education for K-12 students.‘Learning a world language is important for students in many ways, but of greatest concern is the reality that America is falling behind other nations in preparing students with the language proficiency needed to compete in the global economy,’ said Swift. ‘It really excites me that MIL has the potential to transform how we teach and learn languages and better connect us to the rest of the world. I am delighted to work with such a great team to help more students gain the 21st Century skill of world language.’Founded in 2010, MIL offers a rich portfolio of world language products, both online and in brick-and-mortar schools, using language immersion as well as other techniques to accommodate different learning styles. By leveraging the online tools and reach of K12 and Middlebury College’s century of excellence in world language instruction, MIL provides proven and cost-effective world language programs for students, teachers and school districts across the country. As a result, MIL is well positioned to help reverse the alarming trend of public schools dropping world language programs due to budget cuts.Swift is also a Distinguished Lecturer of Leadership Studies at Williams College, where she has taught a class on leadership in politics for the past three years. Prior to MIL, Swift served as the Senior Vice President of Government Solutions and Strategy for ConnectEDU, a Boston-based private education technology company focusing on student college and career transitions. She also served as a General Partner at Arcadia Partners in Boston, a national education venture capital firm, and founder of WNP Consulting, an educational consultancy with clients across the country.‘With a leader of Jane Swift’s stature at the helm, we’re confident that Middlebury Interactive Languages will set a new standard in the world language learning industry across the nation,’ said Ron Packard, founder and Chief Executive Officer of K12 Inc. ‘The need for strong world language skills is critical in today’s 21st Century global economy, and Jane’s deep understanding of K12’s virtual school model and her proven record as an education leader will help MIL reach more students across the country.”MIL is leading the way to support world language proficiency as a critical core skill for all students. Better communication skills, along with cultural awareness obtained through world language study empower pre-college students entering a competitive and increasingly global workforce. Additional academic benefits to second language acquisition include improved cognitive abilities, better memory, and higher academic achievement. In fact, according to the College Board, students who completed at least four years of foreign-language study scored more than 100 points higher on each section of the SAT than students who took a half year or less.‘We are delighted to have Jane join us on this important educational initiative,’ said Ronald D. Liebowitz, President of Middlebury College. ‘World language opportunities for primary and secondary school students in this country are declining due to financial pressures, yet the need has never been more important to our nation’s global competitiveness and to each student’s future success. Jane’s leadership can help expand the reach and effectiveness of Middlebury’s renowned language immersion methodology, bringing both global culture and communication to an even wider audience of young students.”While serving as a public official for more than a decade, Swift made ensuring excellence in every Massachusetts school her top priority. As a three-term state Senator, Swift assisted in drafting the landmark 1993 Massachusetts Education Reform Act. As Governor from April 2001 to January 2003 she implemented many of the critical components of the new law. She also implemented sweeping changes in the Massachusetts public schools, which have been consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Recognizing the gains made under Swift’s watch, the U.S. Department of Education in January 2003 declared Massachusetts schools a national model.Swift, who has received seven honorary degrees, received a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies from Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut. During college, Swift spent a term abroad in Rome, Italy, where she was immersed in the local culture and became conversational in Italian, a language which she had heard regularly growing up when visiting her grandmother’s home. Her daughters are currently engaged in learning world language as well, and have been studying online with the Powerspeak12 program for the past three years.A native of North Adams, Massachusetts, Swift resides with her husband, Chuck Hunt, and their three daughters in Williamstown, Massachusetts.About Middlebury Interactive LanguagesMiddlebury Interactive Languages (MIL) is the premier academic leader in world language instruction for K-12 students.
