Local municipal governments have a crucial role in helping communities adapt to climate change.

Drawing on content analyses of local climate adaptation plans from the United States (US) and Australia, as well as interviews with municipal planners in both nations, the chapter explores the adaptation policy choices communities are making and explains the range of strategies local governments have used to move forward on a ‘ladder’ of climate adaptation ...

It is hoped that it may remove some of the disagreements which can arise on construction projects due to differences of interpretation. The paper follows ARM sequence, stating the rules first and following these with notes and commentary on the individual rules.

Because contractual terms and arrangements are a central concern of the preliminaries bill, this paper has been written with a particular focus ...


Ciudades En Construcción Permanente ¿Destino De Casas Para Todos?, Jaime F. Erazo Espinosa Arq., Teolinda Bolívar Arq., Marcelo Rodríguez Mancilla Psic. 2015 El Colegio de México, A.C. (Colmex)

Ciudades En Construcción Permanente ¿Destino De Casas Para Todos?, Jaime F. Erazo Espinosa Arq., Teolinda Bolívar Arq., Marcelo Rodríguez Mancilla Psic.

Jaime F. Erazo Espinosa

Es un placer presentar el Volumen II de la Colección Ciudades de la Gente titulado "Ciudades en construcción permanente ¿Destino de casas para todos?". Esta Colección nace de la convicción y la necesidad de guardar la memoria de un proceso de trabajo sobre dos temas de importancia para América Latina y El Caribe como son el hábitat popular y la inclusión social; tópicos con nombres tan propios en cada lugar de nuestra región –favelas, villas miseria, pueblos jóvenes, etc.- pero con disfunciones y sobreposiciones tan generales que nos fuerzan a verlos iguales; y es que la visión que de ellos ...

Most people consider Interior Design to be a luxury and something that only the wealthy and privileged can afford. However, this is not the case; anyone with any budget can have a space that they are proud to call their own. While the wealthy do have the ability to pay to furnish a room without regard to cost, which is not a criteria that alone determines whether or not you have a wonderful space. A more economical family may have to be more prudent with their furnishings purchases, but they still have the right to a beautiful, enjoyable, comfortable home ...

Philosophy

Embracing the elements of design with the elements of nature.

Healthy interiors must draw inspiration from nature through its light, color, and sustainability; creating therapeutic spaces for all users. It is crucial to bridge the gap between all fields of design and cultures, bringing the innovations of healthy interiors to our homes, businesses, hospitals, and all aspects of the design process.

My design philosophy is to create an area that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional. Whether this is residential or commercial, I want you to feel comfortable about your surroundings. I want you to be able to enjoy the environment around you and feel right at home. This can be with commercial design also. I do not want someone to feel as if they are in a hospital. White walls feel institutional. I want to design places that make you feel at ease and comfortable, even if it is a place you do not necessarily want to be, such ...

I believe it is human nature to want to change the world, to leave your mark. An interior designer has many options to do this through codes, sustainability, and collectively changing the way humans interact in a space. While the aesthetics and functionality of a space are the main goals of a design there are many opportunities to improve on a way of life and this is what I find most important.

Interior design is not only a career it is also my passion. I have always had a passion for design especially when it comes to residential spaces. While there are many different rooms in a home I am always drawn to living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. Each room is like a different piece of a puzzle, they can all have their own personality, but still all fit together to create a wonderful home.

I believe quality design does not always have to be expensive. Using things we currently have and creating something else with it is a great way to be sustainable. Not only are you saving money by re-using and sprucing up old items but you are also creating a unique piece that no one else has! Why buy new when you can re-use?

Also pleasing clients is a tough job but my passion for interior design makes me want to achieve the vision that the clients have and create a space of their dreams by doing it with passion or not ...

I believe the purpose of interior designer is creating a place that reflects client’s personality and making sure to protect their health, safety and welfare.


Green School, Designing For Comfort And Beyond…, Andrea S. Wheeler, Naghmeh Pak, Evan Jeanblanc 2015 Iowa State University

Green School, Designing For Comfort And Beyond…, Andrea S. Wheeler, Naghmeh Pak, Evan Jeanblanc

Andrea S. Wheeler

Comfort is defined through human senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. Each sense can lead to a greater or lesser degree of comfort. However, children experience comfort differently than adults. They experience spaces differently and have different knowledge about the performance of a building than adult users; they can also have a perspective on design quality unlike that of the architect. School is a designed environment that a child lives in for over 6 hours a day; it is it is thus argued simply a matter of a child’s right to be consulted about his or her day-to-day ...
