The Influence Of Sensory Gardens On The Behavior Of Children With Special Educational Needs, Hazreena Hussein

Hazreena Hussein

This study explores the use of sensory gardens by observing the zones and how they are utilised by children with special educational needs. Methods applied were interviews, observation and behaviour mapping, which was used in conjunction with the affordance theory. Affordance was categorised by landscape furniture, soft and hard landscape in relation to three categories of activities: Sensory stimulation, physical and social skills. The findings had discovered continuous pathways that link the sensory garden to the site context, had easy access to the features, and had the highest number of user. This study also found that users spent a longer ...


Climate Responsive Design And The Milam Residence, L Carl Fiocchi Jr, Mohammad Shahadat,, Simi T. Hoque 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Climate Responsive Design And The Milam Residence, L Carl Fiocchi Jr, Mohammad Shahadat,, Simi T. Hoque

L. Carl Fiocchi

Energy conservation and efficiency is an essential area of focus in contemporary building design. The perception that the designers of buildings during the Modernist period of architecture ignored these principles is a false one. The present study, an examination of Paul Rudolph’s Milam Residence, a masterpiece of American residential architecture, is part of a larger project endeavoring to create a knowledge base of the environmental performance of iconic modernist homes. A critical examination of the Milam House allows insight into specific design characteristics that impact energy efficiency and conservation. Located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the Milam Residence was ...


Fútbol Y Violencia: Las Razones De Una Sin Razón, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Fútbol Y Violencia: Las Razones De Una Sin Razón, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El conflicto es consustancial al fútbol, porque encarna una disputa entre dos bandos que buscan la victoria por todos los medios a su alcance. Pero esta disputa no siempre es pacífica, tanto que el juego está impregnado por la incorporación de los principios, categorías y leguajes de la guerra. Allí la estrategia y la táctica como organizadores pacíficos del conflicto. El disparo de misiles, la existencia de bombazos, el cobro de tiros libres y la falta máxima de un penal. Un jugador potente es el tanque Hurtado, si tiene un tiro fuerte será el Cañoncito Peñaherrera o si el defensa ...

Todo escenario transaccional, comercial o financiero, puede ser afectado por el lavado de activos, cuya naturaleza, transnacional y delictiva, puede mermarse al confrontarse con acciones preventivas engranadas en mecanismos, cada vez más profundos, de cooperación internacional y en políticas, cada vez mejoradas, de alcance supranacional. Todo escenario contaminado encierra también todo el dinero que se obtiene y no sólo proviene del tráfico de drogas sino de cualquier actividad delincuencial, dícese por ejemplo: tráfico de personas y de órganos, contrabando, tráfico de bienes inmuebles y de bienes culturales, etc. Todo dinero obtenido (re)valoriza todo activo, y lo integra o al ...

Theodore S. Eisenman

In August 2010, the Sustainable Urban Development Working Group engaged researchers from
the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute of Urban Research to provide research in support of a
standard system of sustainable urban development indicators for the United States. Selected
indicators were to demonstrate the progress that American cities are making toward sustainable
urban development, inform supportive policy, planning and investment, and cover two
conceptual frameworks including the Partnership for Sustainable Communities’ Livability
Principles. As the first step in that research, the objective of this study was to explore the
characteristics of existing indicator systems, examine whether a standard set ...

2. Screening Cost, Credit Risk, And The Optimal Structure Of Mortgage Lending—Origin Of The Subprime Mortgage Crisis, Pingkang Yu 2010 The George Washington University

2. Screening Cost, Credit Risk, And The Optimal Structure Of Mortgage Lending—Origin Of The Subprime Mortgage Crisis, Pingkang Yu

Pingkang Yu

This paper attempts to answer a direct question—who should get mortgage credit and how should that credit be supplied? This question is at the heart of the recent subprime crisis and the efforts to reform mortgage lending through new regulations. This paper develops a credit market model with borrower’s self-selection and lender’s costly screening. Borrowers in the model differ in both screening cost and credit risk. In particular, the model includes fraudulent borrowers and low-risk-high-documentation-cost borrowers. The paper finds that separating equilibrium, where specialized lender serves the targeted type of borrower, is the only feasible market structure ...

Transforming Subjectivities: Service That Expands Learning In Urban Planning, Clara Irazabal, Susan C. Harris 2010 Columbia University

Transforming Subjectivities: Service That Expands Learning In Urban Planning, Clara Irazabal, Susan C. Harris

Clara Irazabal

In a recent service-learning course we taught at the University of Southern California (USC), our goal was the 'transformation of subjectivity", as students traversed their own paths from students to professionals, learners to doers and coeducators, and from experts to collaborators. Our intent was to minimize the boundaries separating classroom and community. We encouraged students to bridge the gap between disciplines (urban planning, public policy, public management, public administration, and real estate) and sought to help them become collaborative and socially responsible professionals. We also tried to change the role that community partners usually play in service-learning partnership. Many public ...
