I'm Jody and I'll take care of you both for the first month. Work here at the amishim theater. Now I'll tell you something about the theater and then I'll take you to meet two of the others. staff its an old building and has been modernized several times in fact as you can see we are doing a major remodel at the moment they have just painted the interior and are about to start on the exterior of the building which will be a great job jobs are running over budget, so we had to postpone installing an elevator. I hope you are happy going up and down stairs when the theater was built, people were generally thinner and shorter than they are now and seats were close together. we have replaced them with bigger seats with more legroom which means fewer seats in total but we have taken the opportunity to install seats that can be easily moved to create different performance spaces, we have also given some storage for other purposes like using them for meetings we strive to engage members of the public in the theater one way is by organizing backstage tours so people can see the building and learn how a theater works they are proving very popular which we are finding out is that people want to have lunch or a cup of coffee while they are here so we are considering opening a cafe in due course, we have a bookstore that specializes in theater books and that attracts a lot of customers next month and will be available for hire for conferences and private functions such as parties we are also considering renting costumes for amateur drama clubs now i want to tell you about our workshops we recently started a program of workshops anyone can join eventually we intend to run courses in acting, but we are waiting until we have the right people as trainers, it is more difficult than we expected, there is a great demand to learn about the technical aspect of putting on a production and our lighting workshop has already started very successfully we are going to start a sound one next month several people have asked about makeup workshops and that is something we are considering for the future surprise success is the puppet making workshop we have someone working here who does it as a hobby and offered to do such a popular workshop that we are now doing them every month before you listen to the rest of the talk have some time to look at questions 17-20. now listen and answer questions 17-20. now a word about the design of the building the stage of the auditorium and the dressing rooms for the actors are all below ground level here on the ground floor we have most of the rooms that the public does not see most of them are internal so they have Windows in the ceiling to illuminate them standing here in the lobby you are probably wondering why the ticket office is not here where the public would expect to find it well you may have noticed it on entering although it is part of this building it is next door with a separate entrance from the road for the theater manager's office, cross the foyer and through the double doors turn right into the room at the end of the hall with a door on the left, the light box is where the computerized stage lighting is in operation it's at the back of the building when you're through the double doors turn left turn right at the water cooler and type again at the end it's the second room along that hallway a light box has a window to the auditorium which of course is below us, the artistic director's office through the double doors, turn right and it's the first room you come to on the right hand side and finally, for now, the room which I'll take you to next to the relaxation room so if you'd like come with me that's the end of section two now you have half a minute to check your answers now move on to section three foreigner you will hear from two biology students named Helen and Colin talking about the report they are writing on their recent field trip to the coastal area called Rocky Bay First, you have some time to look at questions 21-26.
Now listen carefully and answer questions 21-26 I have brought my notes about our biology field trip to Rocky Bay Colin so we can work on our report on the research we did together ok I have mine too let's look at the goals of the trip let's fight first what did you have to put something about getting experience in the different types of procedures used in a field trip, but do we need something about the causes? different organisms to choose particular habitats I agree and something about figuring out how to protect endangered organisms in our targets but we weren't really looking at that I guess that's not right now there's the list of equipment we all had to bring on the excursion Why did they tell us to bring a ruler because it was something to measure the slope of the shore but of course we didn't need it because we were measuring the direction of the wind and we had brought the compass for that, not the piece of rope to hold in the air, didn't you Mr.
Blake a scandal because we put that behind us? yes, um, that's clear, but I don't think we need all these details of what time did you leave and what time did we come back and how we divided up the different investigative tasks. research method in detail, so let's start with how we measure the speed of waves. I was surprised at how easy it was. but i guess that was good enough but the way we measured the amount of salt was interesting in the water from the rock pools yeah oh i wanted to check the chemicals we used in the lab when we tested those samples was it potassium chromate and silver nitrate? ok we need the shoreline map you left it for me and i had to do it while the tide was out ok it was ok but the place i started from was on the beach then i realized i should have.
I went higher to get better visibility so I had to start over but at least I got the graph paper or I would have had trouble drawing it all to scale, yeah that's good we'll get a map of the internet region. changes hmm i took a look but couldn't find anything but you did take some pics didn't you? Yeah, I'll email them to you if you'd like, okay, I'll make my amends using those and then I can scan them into our report. Brilliant. Before you listen to the rest of the discussion, you have some time to look at questions 27-30.
Now listen and answer questions 27-30. Now, when we get to our findings, I thought we could break them down into the different zones that we identified in the shoreline and the problems facing the organisms in each zone, so for the higher area, the splash zone, yes, we found mainly those small shellfish that have strong, hard shells that act as protection, but not from other organisms that they could eat them. for them but the shells keep them from drying out because they are out in the open most of the time and since they are exposed they need to be able to find some kind of shelter or cover so it doesn't get too hot in the mid and lower areas closer of the sea we need to discuss the effects of wave action yes and how organisms develop structures to avoid being washed away or even destroyed by being smashed against the rocks that i haven't done anything on the geological changes i don't know what to put for that um no we weren't concentrating on that maybe we need to find some websites yes I have the lecture notes from Mr.
Blake's geology course but they are too general but we could ask him what books on our reading list might be most helpful in this For now, okay, I've made a rough draft of the sources section for possible errors in our research, but I don't know if you agree with, for example, the sample size and if it's large enough to draw general conclusions, but I thought we actually had a pretty large sample and our general method of observation seemed pretty reliable, but we may not be that precise as far as the actual numbers go, yes we couldI have missed some organisms if they were hiding under a rock for example I wasn't sure the way we described their habitats I decided it was probably ok yes and the description we gave of the smaller organisms wasn't very detailed but they were suitable in this context i'm not sure we've identified all the species correctly though ok we better mention that now how are we going to?
That's the end of section three. You now have half a minute to check your answers. Now move on to section four. You will hear part of an explain to architecture students about the design of a public building. First you have some time to look at questions 31 to 40. Now now listen carefully and answer questions 31 to 40. We have been discussing the factors that the architect must Consider When Designing Domestic Buildings I am now going to consider the design of public buildings and will illustrate this by referring to the new Taylor Concert Hall recently completed here in the city, as well as a domestic building when designing a public building an architect must Consider the function of the building, for example, whether it will be used primarily for entertainment, education, or administration;
The second thing the architect needs to think about is the context of the building, this includes its physical location, obviously, but also includes the social significance of the building, how it relates to the people it is built for, and ultimately to buildings. important audiences, the architect may also be looking for a central symbolic idea on which to base the design, a kind of metaphor for the building and the way it develops. which is used let's look at the new Taylor Concert Hall in relation to these ideas the location chosen was a site in a run down district which has been ignored in previous redevelopment plans it was occupied by a factory which has been vacant for some years all over the area it was some distance from the high-rise office blocks of the central business district and the mall, but it was only half a mile from The Ring Road. materials when the area was used for manufacturing the architect chosen for the project was Tom Harrison found that the main design challenge was the location of the site in an area that had no neighboring buildings of significance to reflect the fact that the importance of the building in this rather dilapidated location was still unknown, he decided to create a building centered around the idea of ​​a mystery, something whose meaning has yet to be discovered, so how was this reflected in the design of the building?
Well, Harrison decided to create pedestrian access to the building and make use of the presence of water on the site as people approach the entrance, therefore having to cross a bridge. He wanted to give people a sense of suspense as they view the building first from a distance and then up close and the initial impression he wanted to create from the shape of the building as a whole was that of a box the first side that people The view of the South Wall is a tall flat wall with no windows to interrupt it this may sound unpleasant but it supports Harrison's concept of the building that the person approaching is intrigued and wonders what is inside and this flat wall also serves another purpose in at night the projectors are turned on and it works as a giant screen on which images are projected the auditorium itself has a capacity of 1500 people the floors supported by 10 solid pads These are made of rubber and therefore can absorb vibrations from the outside and prevent them from affecting the auditorium.
The walls are made of several layers of honey-coloured wood, all sourced from local beeches to improve acoustic properties. the auditorium and to amplify the sound are not straight, they are curved. The acoustics are also adjustable according to the size of the orchestra and the type of music being played. To achieve this there are nine movable panels on the ceiling above the orchestra which are all individually motorized and the walls also have curtains which can be opened or closed to change the acoustics Public reaction to the new building has been generally positive however , some critics' assessment has been less than enthusiastic despite Harrison's efforts to use local materials.
They criticize the style of the design for being international rather than local and say it does not reflect the characteristics of the landscape or the society for which it is built. that is the end of section four you now have half a minute to check your answers that is the end of the
