Aesthetics For Green Roofs And Green Walls, 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 ...

Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, 2014 University of South Florida
Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler
The garden city or garden suburb was a response to the social and environmental ills of cities at the turn of the twentieth century. Letchworth Garden City, Hampstead Garden Suburb, and Welwyn Garden City were built outside London in the early 1900s, and each remains a highly desirable place of residence today. From the start, each was tightly regulated, and remains so a century later. By protecting the appearance and enhancing property values, the strict application of historic preservation principles contribute to the long-term sustainability of each place. Similar garden suburbs were built in the borough of Queens in New ...

An Introduction To Taking Off Building Quantities:An Irish Approach, 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology
An Introduction To Taking Off Building Quantities:An Irish Approach, Tony Cunningham
The purpose of measuring building work is to establish the correct amount of work to be executed. Calculating well presented accurate quantities in a clear manner while adopting a logical approach will help to reduce errors and will save time if the measurements need to be referred to at a later date. This paper describes and demonstrates an approach to hand-written taking off procedure informed by the techniques adopted by Irish consulting quantity surveying practices. The paper also discusses the ‘direct billing’ system used inIrelandand contrasts this with the procedures demonstrated in various UK textbooks, identifying key differences between the ...

La Ciudad Y Su Gobierno En América Latina, 2014 SelectedWorks
La Ciudad Y Su Gobierno En América Latina, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.
Fernando Carrión Mena
: El gobierno de la ciudad en América Latina debe ser entendido a partir de una doble óptica interrelacionada: por un lado, en su condición histórica, en términos de que en las últimas décadas se prefiguran claramente dos momentos; el primero vinculado a la ciudad frontera, donde prima la jerarquía urbana y el gobierno intra urbano, que terminó siendo desbordado por las demandas del crecimiento demográfico, lo cual condujo a políticas de planificación que negaron la existencia de grandes grupos de población (marginales, ilegales) y de la participación entendida como autoconstrucción (deja la responsabilidad a la sociedad); y el segundo, inscrito ...

Elecciones Locales 2014, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.
Fernando Carrión Mena
Esta diferenciación de las fechas se sustentó en la necesidad de fortalecer la autonomía de los gobiernos locales, de tal manera que no se produzca el arrastre de los votos de los candidatos nacionales hacia los locales. Sin embargo, esta importante legislación quedará en el papel, debido a que el presidente de la República será el gran elector, debido al fuerte liderazgo que posee. En la fase preelectoral ya se sintió su presencia, tanto en la selección de candidaturas como en la reelección de ciertas dignidades: se reunió con alrededor de 180 alcaldes y definieron los apoyos mutuos. Ahora, en ...
Rethinking Atlanta's Regional Resilience In An Age Of Uncertainty: Still The Economic Engine Of The New South?, Jennifer Clark
One of the great challenges facing large, diverse metropolitan economies is how to build and maintain sustainable and resilient cities. For several years now, people have recognized the critical and expanding role of “global cities.” Although Saskia Sassen’s initial conceptualization focused on leading financial centers---London, New York, and Tokyo---the notion has developed to encompass broader ideas about how diverse metropolitan economies serve as regional nodes in a global network (Sassen 2001) . These global cities serve as the engines behind national and regional economic growth. Increasingly, academics and policy advocates have argued that global cities constitute the most important interconnected ...
Cities, Disaster Risk And Adaptation, 2014 SelectedWorks
Cities, Disaster Risk And Adaptation, Christine Wamsler
Worldwide, disasters and climate change pose a serious risk to sustainable urban development, resulting in escalating human and economic costs. Consequently, city authorities and other urban actors face the challenge of integrating risk reduction and adaptation strategies into their work, although related knowledge and expertise are still scarce.
Cities, Disaster Risk and Adaptation explores ways in which resilient cities can be ‘built’ and sustainable urban transformations achieved. The book provides a comprehensive understanding of urban risk reduction and adaptation planning, exploring key theoretical concepts and analyzing the complex interrelation between cities, disasters and climate change. It further provides an overview ...
Climate Considerations For Facades, 2014 University of Massachusetts - Amherst
Climate Considerations For Facades, Ajla Aksamija
Facades are one of the most significant contributors to the energy budget and the comfort parameters of any building, and their designs and performance are essential factors for sustainable, energy-efficient, high-performance buildings. Basic methods for designing high-performance building facades include: orienting and developing geometry and massing of the building to respond to solar position, providing solar shading to control cooling loads and improve thermal comfort, using natural ventilation to reduce cooling loads and enhance air quality, minimizing energy used for artificial lighting and mechanical cooling and heating by optimizing exterior wall insulation and the use of daylighting. This article includes ...

Library Renovation: Dos And Don'ts:, 2014 SelectedWorks
Library Renovation: Dos And Don'ts:, Paul Glassman
Whether a library renovation is a bane or a blessing depends on its responsiveness to patron needs, its recasting of the library image, and its improvement of the built environment. This chapter will address the essential components of the users' role in commissioning an inviting set of library spaces that accommodate the cosmic effects of virtual collections on library design.
The Spatial Relationship Between Crime And Public Transportation: A Geospatial Analysis Of Salt Lake City's Trax System, Joel W. Warren
All Graduate Theses and Dissertations
It is well-known that, when it comes to crime, some neighborhoods are safer than others. Researchers who make maps of crime have observed that some areas of cities have more crime than others. These areas of high crime are often called hot spots. Crime pattern theory explained why some neighborhoods have more crime than others by looking at criminal events as a meeting between a motivated criminal and a target. Social scientists, geographers, and city planners have shown that criminals generally choose targets from places they see every day, for example on their ride to work or the grocery store ...
