Right To The Suburb? Rethinking Lefebvre And Immigrant Activism, Clara Irazabal, Genevieve Carpio, Laura Pulido 2010 Columbia University

Right To The Suburb? Rethinking Lefebvre And Immigrant Activism, Clara Irazabal, Genevieve Carpio, Laura Pulido

Clara Irazabal

In the face of increasing migration by Latinos to suburbs and multi-scalar policies criminalizing immigrants, municipalities are increasingly confronting the question, Who has the Right to the Suburb? We seek to better understand how the tensions between suburbanites and Latino immigrants are addressed by municipal governments as immigration enforcement is increasingly rescaled to the local level. Case studies of Maywood and Costa Mesa in Southern California suggest responses are by no means similar and can actually be contrasting, given the city’s historical trajectories, socio-economic status, political leadership, and networks of activists. Suburban struggles are often assumed to be conservative ...

Reina Del Camino, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El 24 de diciembre pasado se produjo uno de los tantos accidentes viales que ocurren en las carreteras del país; con un saldo francamente doloroso: 38 personas fallecidas y 32 lesionadas, de los 83 pasajeros que llevaba el bus número 57 de la Cooperativa Reina del Camino. En este accidente se han encontrado muchas anormalidades, como son: problemas mecánicos en los frenos y en la caja de cambios, superabundancia de pasajeros, exceso de velocidad, chofer sin licencia de conducir y distinto al que fue autorizado a la salida de la terminal de Quito y carencia de controles en los 300 ...

Populismo Pen, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La violencia crece exponencialmente según las encuestas de victimización y las denuncias hechas por la población, al extremo que la mayoría de los habitantes se consideran víctimas. Una situación como la descrita tiende a modificar el peso relativo de la relación entre técnicos, políticos y ciudadanía en la determinación de las políticas de seguridad ciudadana. Poco a poco los primeros son relegados, los segundos “representan” a la ciudadanía y los terceros asumen un rol cada vez más protagónico. Por eso el oficialismo y la oposición se disputan la oferta de “mano dura”, más como búsqueda de legitimidad política que como ...


Designing For Future Building Adaptive Reuse Using Adaptstar, Sheila Conejos, Craig Langston 2010 Bond University

Designing For Future Building Adaptive Reuse Using Adaptstar, Sheila Conejos, Craig Langston

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Designing future buildings with embedded adaptive reuse potential is a useful criterion for sustainability. Adaptive reuse is an emerging and significant design strategy that supports global climate protection and emissions reduction. Building adaptive reuse is a viable alternative to demolition and replacement; it entails less energy and waste, and can offer social benefits by revitalizing familiar landmarks and giving them a new lease of life. This paper describes the development of a new rating tool known as adaptSTAR, suitable for assessing future adaptive reuse potential at the time a building is designed. This paper reports on the methodology used to ...

Is Leed A True Leader? Studying The Effectiveness Of Leed Certification In Encouraging Green Building, Megan M. Turner 2010 Pomona College

Is Leed A True Leader? Studying The Effectiveness Of Leed Certification In Encouraging Green Building, Megan M. Turner

Pomona Senior Theses

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (or LEED) is the most commonly used green building rating system in the United States, bestowing upon LEED certified buildings the prestige of being considered more sustainable than their non-certified neighbors. The public often assumes that LEED certified buildings are completely sustainable or even net-zero with regards to greenhouse gas emissions, but in actuality buildings certified under the most popular version of LEED are only required to be 15% more energy efficient than required by most state building codes – a far cry from the energy usage cuts needed to stave off global warming. By ...


La Fiesta Quiteña, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Fiesta Quiteña, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las fiestas de Quito tienen alrededor de 60 años de vida. Nacieron del impulso del Diario Últimas Noticias, una licorera nacional y los empresarios taurinos españoles, todos vinculados con una propuesta de hispanidad que tiene su punto central en la fundación española de la urbe. De aquella época para acá muchos cambios se han producido.

La fiesta nació en el barrio aristocrático de La Mariscal Sucre (Parque Gabriela Mistral) y rápidamente se extendió por todos los barios de la ciudad, para convertirse en un festejo masivo de la ciudad y también diferenciado socialmente, según el carácter de los espacios: los ...


The Management Of Built Heritage: A Comparative Review Of Policies And Practice In Western Europe, North America And Australia, Tracy Pickerill, Lynne Armitage 2010 Bond University

The Management Of Built Heritage: A Comparative Review Of Policies And Practice In Western Europe, North America And Australia, Tracy Pickerill, Lynne Armitage

Lynne Armitage

Internationally, patterns of government policy are trending away from traditional approaches to the conservation of the built heritage involving direct public funding, limiting subsidy and acquisition to the most cherished exemplars of national character. The evolving contemporary approach is one of partnership between stakeholders in the public and private domain to leverage their relative strengths whilst recognizing the constraints of market conditions and public sector imperatives. As a consequence of the limited ability of the untrammelled property market to incorporate values of cultural heritage which accord with those held by the broader voting public a continuum of legislative regimes has ...


Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone 2010 Salve Regina University

Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

Norman Morrison Isham was an authority on Newport’s Colonial architecture and was hired to guide local restoration projects in Newport, Rhode Island. These projects, ranging in date from 1914 to 1931, included the Redwood Library, the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House, The Colony House, and the Brick Market. Isham’s work is representative of an early period of preservation, and as such, Isham worked prior modern day historic preservation standards and guidelines. An analysis of Isham’s restoration work in Newport provides insight into the elements that compose his preservation theory and how his theory, as carried out with Colonial era structures ...

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

This studio was based on the Fairmount Greenway that was developed through a series of public meetings with the neighborhood community and with consultants from the firm Crosby, Schlessinger and Smallridge (CSS). The Fairmount Greenway, while drawing its identity from the traditional greenway model is in fact a reinterpretation of an urban greenway. The greenway path follows along both primary and secondary city streets because of the lack of space along the rail right-of-way. The Fairmount Greenway begins at what will be a new station stop at New Market South Bay near Upham’s Corner in northern Dorchester. The greenway ...

Calligraphy Tablets In The Forbidden City, Jianrong Wang 2010 Bridgewater State University

Calligraphy Tablets In The Forbidden City, Jianrong Wang

Bridgewater Review

The calligraphy tablets hung over each main gate and building in Beijing’s Forbidden City, although often neglected by visitors, actually are special embodiments of traditional Chinese concepts either well known or maybe unexpected by their readers. Besides explaining architectural functions, the tablets also can be read as means of decorating the architecture, conveying political ideals, advocating academic achievements, expressing good wishes and depicting charming sceneries.
