The winning proposal, deemed “the most compelling” by jury for its rotating stacks of sculptural, stone-clad cubes that rise up to 150 meters, is expected to be Berlin’s tallest skyscraper and Germany’s tallest residential tower. “Gehry’s design is strong in visual expression and introduces an unusually eccentric, new pattern for this location. Nevertheless, the façade radiates agreeable tranquility. In addition, the design blends well with the neighborhood and conveys all aspects of metropolitan living,” commented Regula Lüscher, Senate Building Director.The majority of the Hines-developed, 500,000 square foot structure will be dedicated to a mixture of apartments and penthouses, however a portion of the tower will be used as a hotel. This will be Gehry’s third project with the real estate giant, as the pair also collaborated on the Hines’ DZ Bank in Berlin and the New World Center in Miami Beach, Florida.Save this picture!© Gehry Partners, Courtesy of HinesGehry’s design is currently on view alongside the competition’s second and third place proposal, by Kleihues + Kleihues Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH and Barkow Leibinger Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH, in a public exhibit at the annex to the Lichthof at Köllnischer Park 3, 10179 Berlin, through February 12, 2014.

Franco’s hat trick leads St. Francis

first_imgLA CA?ADA – St. Francis High School’s boys soccer team has tried hard not to dwell on the past. Still, the Golden Knights remember the feeling of walking off a rainy field at Hart High after a CIF-Southern Section Division II playoff loss to the Indians a year ago. “We said if things were ideal, we could score two goals in the first 10 minutes, and today it worked out,” St. Francis Glen Appels said. Joe Franco, Nick Swart and Daniel Frank made sure it worked out for St. Francis (25-4), which finished second in the Mission League behind Loyola. Franco scored three goals, and Swart and Frank had two apiece. “It was a team effort, and I was in the right place at the right time,” Franco said of his hat trick. Franco’s first goal came in the third minute, when he headed a nice pass from Nick Posthuma past Oilers goalkeeper Anthony Anguiano. A Montebello foul gave St. Francis a free kick. Haig Farajian was set to take the shot, but faked it. Swart stepped in and rifled a shot past Anguiano to give St. Francis a 2-0 lead in the 11th minute. “The fake wasn’t the key; it was how hard Nick shot it,” Appels said. “He just fired it. It was a nice individual effort. “It’s nice to see guys translate practice into a game-day situation.” Franco took a pass from Jon Ondrejko and scored again in the 15th minute. Goals by Swart and Frank gave St. Francis a commanding 5-0 halftime lead. Franco completed his hat trick and finished the scoring a minute later. The Golden Knights struck again in the 69th minute. G.P. Gonzalez was robbed from point-blank range by Anguiano, but Frank was there to knock home the rebound. “We fell behind early, and they’re a good team,” Montebello coach Jesus Garcia said. “They had a lot of opportunities to score. They put them in the net and we didn’t have too many chances.” St. Francis outshot Montebello (15-7-3), 12-2. The Golden Knights will play Servite on Wednesday. “We have a stronger squad this year and hopefully we’ll use this momentum going into our next game,” Franco said. Appels feels his team has learned from last year’s bitter disappointment. “Last year, we started six sophomores and a freshman,” he said. “Six juniors and a sophomore looks better.” [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Two goals in the opening 11 minutes eased any tension the St. Francis players might have been feeling and they went on to score a 7-0 victory over the Oilers in the first round of the Division I playoffs. last_img read more
