"The Work of Columbia University's Latin Lab, with Emphasis on Medellin's Borderlands" , Clara Irazabal

In recent years the renaissance of the city of Medellin has achieved great recognition. Just weeks ago, Medellin hosted the United Nations' World Urban Forum 7, which celebrated its urban planning transformation. According to most architectural and urban planning debates, this Colombian city has successfully been investing in infrastructural and social projects to improve the conditions in blighted neighborhoods as well as in the city as a whole. At the same time, some of the issues derived from the design of the new ...

"Economic Integration of Immigrant Populations: The Latino/a Experience in Des Moines, Iowa "

Abstract:

Iowa has become a new gateway destination for Latinos/as, and the state has benefited from the influx of these immigrants given existing demographic trends that include brain drain, aging populations, and shrinking communities. This growth has led to the development of Latino/a entrepreneurship and business, creating commercial niches with high potential for economic development and revitalization in Iowan communities. However, the distribution of Latinos/as in the labor force remains concentrated in low-wage sectors of the economy. The lack of state and federal involvement ...

"Governance and its Role in Community Adaptations to Environmental Stresses under Decentralization Programs in Southwestern Uruguay"

Abstract:

Since the turn of the 21st century, climate change and globalization have critically affected the southwestern region of Uruguay. Community responses to environmental stresses created by natural and anthropogenic phenomena have been addressed by recent political decentralization policies and programs. Based on semi-structured interviews with key informants from the market, state, and civil society, participant observation and reports from local public meetings and assemblies, this study explores how community governance processes under the decentralization programs promoted through Municipios and Mesas de Desarrollo ...

How To Teach A Complex Discipline In A Changing Learning Environment: The Example Of Sustainability

Journal of Environmental Sustainability

In the “electronic age” our teaching profession is faced with new challenges. Normally, educators tend to spend a significant amount of time updating the content of what they teach. They spend less time changing their methods of teaching. Today, this no longer works. A lot of content is delivered through Google and similar partners and what is now critical is that we make the necessary changes in our teaching methods to reflect this and to have some impact on our audiences.

Partner – Translate – Impact: A Method For Public Interest Design In Architectural Education, Nadia M. Anderson

Architecture Conference Papers

Global financial systems, increased human mobility, and climate change are contemporary forces creating historic disparities between rich and poor, increased rural-to-urban migration, and frequent natural disasters. These conditions demand that architecture rethink its relationship with natural and built environments and the people who occupy them.


Contractors’ Claims For Loss And Expense Under The Principle ‘Traditional’ Forms Of Irish Building Contract, Tony Cunningham 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology

Contractors’ Claims For Loss And Expense Under The Principle ‘Traditional’ Forms Of Irish Building Contract, Tony Cunningham

Other Resources

Contractor’s claims for loss and expense have long been a contentious issue on many building contracts. Claims are usually resolved during the final accounting process, but where negotiations fail, they frequently become disputes, with the parties adopting a legal route to resolve their differences. This review examines the topic of contractors’ claims in the context of ‘traditionally’ procured building contracts in theRepublicofIrelandand focuses on the RIAI ‘Yellow’ and the GCCC Public Works PW-CF1 Contracts. The study examines the grounds on which a claim for compensation may be made under these two contracts and describes the administrative procedures to be ...

"Changing roles of market, state and civil society: the case of coffee cooperatives and small farmers in Mexico"

Abstract

In this paper, we investigate how civil society organizations, in particular coffee cooperatives, are responding to the growth of market power and the decline of government’s role in the coffee regime. At the international and national (Mexican) levels a strong neoliberal agenda skewed towards the freedom of the market has changed the relationships with the state and civil society. The strong role of the market, and the volatility of international coffee prices as well as the lack of assertive agricultural ...

Aesthetics For Green Roofs And Green Walls, Richard K. Sutton 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Aesthetics For Green Roofs And Green Walls, Richard K. Sutton

Landscape Architecture Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Do green roofs and green walls have aesthetic benefits? Most green roof proponents would say so. But what are they and how do they relate to green roof design in terms of species selection, planting arrangement, viewable context, access, maintenance and other factors? Aesthetics according to the Green Roof Design 101 Manual 2nd Ed (GRHC 2006) provides “pleasure- and psycho-physiologically-oriented benefits” but, this narrow understanding suggests that the aesthetic potential of green roofs is limited to what one might experience looking upon any garden. We suggest other ways that need exploring to make aesthetics more relevant and understandable to ...
