Justin Trudeau’s gender balanced cabinet shouldn’t be the exception

When Canada’s newly appointed prime minister, Justin Trudeau, was sworn in to office on Wednesday, he announced that he had daringly appointed 15 of his 30 cabinet roles to women. His decision inspired widespread coverage and praise. It was a huge win for representation — you can’t be what you can’t see. But Trudeau’s cabinet will be able to combat even deeper issues.

Reinterpretar es la clave de la arquitectura moderna. Ya no basta con repetir la clásica casita en la montaña. Para hacer arquitectura de acuerdo a nuestros tiempos, debemos ver el entorno, aprender de lo existente, y tomar elementos para proyectar soluciones novedosas, elegantes, funcionales. Este refugio en la montaña toma el lenguaje pétreo, de volúmenes puros y texturas ala vista para reinventar la sensación de habitar en las alturas, incorporando sensaciones como las salientes, los acantilados, las grietas, la sombra y las cumbres.
