Climbing The Adaptation Planning Ladder: Barriers And Enablers In Municipal Planning, Elisabeth M. Hamin, Nicole Gurran 2015 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Climbing The Adaptation Planning Ladder: Barriers And Enablers In Municipal Planning, Elisabeth M. Hamin, Nicole Gurran

Elisabeth M. Hamin

Local municipal governments have a crucial role in helping communities adapt to climate change. Recognizing different levels of climate preparedness, this chapter analyzes what steps communities tend to follow when they move forward on climate adaptation, including prerequisites for planning and the selection of policies. 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 ...

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 ...

Measuring Timber Pitched Roofs in Accordance with ARM4

Abstract

Timber pitched roofs are the dominant form of domestic roof construction in the Republic of Ireland. This worked example demonstrates the principles and techniques involved in measuring a very simple roof structure design in accordance with the principles of the Agreed Rules of Measurement (ARM4 – 2009). The worked example, nevertheless demonstrates a number of important techniques commonly used in measuring roof structures. The demonstration is addressed to Irish students of quantity surveying related disciplines at foundation level.


The Impact Of Cargo Bikes On Travel Patterns: Survey Report, William W. Riggs, Jana E. Schwartz 2015 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

The Impact Of Cargo Bikes On Travel Patterns: Survey Report, William W. Riggs, Jana E. Schwartz

William W. Riggs

Cargo bikes are becoming increasingly available in the United States with vendors such as Yuba, Trek, XtraCycle, and Marin all offering platforms. While a large body of research has continued to investigate traditional bike transportation, cargo bikes offer the potential to capture trips for those that might otherwise be made by car. To investigate this, a survey was conducted querying how use and travel characteristics changed upon cargo bike ownership (N = 299; 95% Confidence Interval +/-6%).


Recent Demographic Growth In Ireland: Implications For Future Spatial Planning And Housing Provision., Brian Hughes 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Recent Demographic Growth In Ireland: Implications For Future Spatial Planning And Housing Provision., Brian Hughes

Other Resources

The recent publication of Ireland’s Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government’s ‘non-statutory’ Planning Policy Statement (PPS) of end January 2015, heralds the prospect of the replacement of the National Spatial Strategy (2002-2020) with a National Planning Framework (NPF). The PPS emphasises that future Planning Strategy should be both evidence-based and plan-led. As a contribution to such aspirations, this Paper presents a demographic approach applied to the spatial context for current housing needs and points to compelling reasons for developing Ireland’s cities whilst curtailing the ongoing proliferation of villages, small towns and one-off housing, and for ...


Perspective: Of Time And Eternity, James G. Lawson 2015 University of Edinburgh

Perspective: Of Time And Eternity, James G. Lawson

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

This paper considers geometric perspective in relation to devotional requirements in Italian religious painting from about 1250 to about 1450. The content of the altarpiece consisted in antithetical elements---the graphic exposition of Christian dogmatics, and a dramatis personae increasingly to be identified in empathetic terms. The one-point perspective system that was invented towards the end of that period, then, presented an opportunity and a difficulty. It enabled the creation of a naturalistic space, aiding empathetic identification with psychologically plausible individuals in the pictured world. On the other hand, whilst superficially the space marked out by the geometry of the vanishing ...

The Cost Versus Price For Parking Spaces At Major Employment Centers: Findings From Uc Berkeley, Tudela-Rivadeneyra, Manish Shirgaokar, Elizabeth Deakin Aldo, Manish Shirgoakar, Elizabeth A. Deakin, William W. Riggs 2015 University of California - Berkeley

The Cost Versus Price For Parking Spaces At Major Employment Centers: Findings From Uc Berkeley, Tudela-Rivadeneyra, Manish Shirgaokar, Elizabeth Deakin Aldo, Manish Shirgoakar, Elizabeth A. Deakin, William W. Riggs

William W. Riggs

In dense urban areas, surface parking often poses an opportunity cost, and reuse of the land for urban development with parking relocated to a multistory structure may be an attractive option. This paper analyzes the cost of replacing surface parking with a parking structure and finds that it may be equally cost effective to pursue travel demand management strategies. The paper analyzes what it costs to build a parking space in a multi-story structure (garage) using US average data as well as data from a substantially higher-cost case, the University of California, Berkeley. The Berkeley case illustrates how replacement of ...

The Relevance Of A Coproductive Capacity Framework To Climate Change Adaptation: Investigating The Health And Water Sectors In Cambodia, Kathryn Bowen, Fiona Miller, Dany Va, Sonia Graham 2015 Australian National University

The Relevance Of A Coproductive Capacity Framework To Climate Change Adaptation: Investigating The Health And Water Sectors In Cambodia, Kathryn Bowen, Fiona Miller, Dany Va, Sonia Graham

Faculty of Society and Design Publications

Multiple active partnerships in the health and water sectors in Cambodia exist to address climate change adaptation, operating beyond typical sectoral and organizational divides. Decisions around national adaptation policy are made predominantly by the relevant lead ministry, contrasting with where funding originates from (i.e., major donors, multilaterals, United Nation agencies). Adaptation policy is thus the result of a process of coproduction by state and nonstate actors. The research we present sought to understand the relationships that exist between knowledge- and decision-makers with respect to climate change adaptation in the health and water sectors in Cambodia, and the factors that ...


The Modern Urban Neighborhood: The Role Of Dwelling In Neighborhood Revitalization, Zachary Nelson 2015 Roger Williams University

The Modern Urban Neighborhood: The Role Of Dwelling In Neighborhood Revitalization, Zachary Nelson

Architecture Theses

Today's architects, planners and urban designers are tasked with the goal of the revitalization of cities and the primary ring of neighborhoods which surround them. These neighborhoods are vital to the life of the city and due to the phenomena of suburbanization many lay dormant as dismal reminders of the once prosperity of the city. The purpose of this exploration is to create a model for the revitalization of urban neighborhoods by looking at the role of dwelling in the process of revitalization. The idea that an urban dwelling is not just your home but it is a series ...


The Late-Modern American Jail: Epistemologies Of Space And Violence, Karen M. Morin 2015 Bucknell University

The Late-Modern American Jail: Epistemologies Of Space And Violence, Karen M. Morin

Karen M. Morin

One of the most troubling aspects of current trends in American mass incarceration is the extent to which ‘criminality’ is produced within prison walls, primarily in the form of inmate–inmate or inmate–staff assaults. Most methods of prison or jail control have the adverse, and perverse, effect of increasing inmates’ levels of fear, terror, and ultimately violence – with stabbings, beatings, and other types of assaults common occurrences. The design of podular ‘direct supervision’ jails and their accompanying philosophies of punishment aspire to change these conditions. Direct supervision features correctional officers inside each housing unit with no physical barriers impeding ...

Research And Inhabited Image (Ria): A Spatial Hypothesis, Sveva Avveduto, Fabio Fornasari

The STEAM Journal

This paper discusses the possibility of representing research activity as a narrative path starting from an experimentation field. The aim is to test and verify connections between social space and the construction of images of the world through the building and perception of specific language in the narrative dimension of research. The field work we present has been carried out as an installation art in Borromini’s Crypt in Rome, and is the example of rendering the story-dimension of research through a medium, a narrative technology in constant progress and evolution. In this way research activity can be presented as ...
