Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, Gregor Kalas 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, Gregor Kalas

Gregor A. Kalas

Cities, Texts and Social Networks examines the experiences of urban life from late antiquity through the close of the fifteenth century, in regions ranging from late Imperial Rome to Muslim Syria, Iraq and al-Andalus, England, the territories of medieval Francia, Flanders, the Low Countries, Italy and Germany. Together, the volume's contributors move beyond attempts to define 'the city' in purely legal, economic or religious terms. Instead, they focus on modes of organisation, representation and identity formation that shaped the ways urban spaces were called into being, used and perceived. Their interdisciplinary analyses place narrative and archival sources in communication ...

Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, Gregor Kalas, Diane Favro, Christopher Johanson 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, Gregor Kalas, Diane Favro, Christopher Johanson

Gregor A. Kalas

During the fourth and fifth centuries CE, statues populating the open areas of the Roman Forum preserved memories of the individuals represented in portraits. This visualization project contextualizes the now-dispersed statues and their inscribed bases in the public space of the late antique Forum. By following consecutively through the "Statues and Memory," "Ritual Experience," and "Spatial Context" links above, one can navigate through the spaces in which the statues once appeared. The statues are explained through their inscribed statue bases in the "Inscription Database" section and tied to display locations under the "Mapping Statues" heading.

Contemporary Practices In Sustainable Design: Appraisal And Articulation Of Emerging Trend, Archana Sharma

Archana Sharma

Sustainable design is a phrase commonly used in the realms of design practice and yet the definition of the same remains quite fuzzy, thus providing the motivation for this research. The paper looks at contemporary sustainable design practices in the area of architecture design, building construction and landscape architecture. The objective is to understand what the term “sustainable design” really means as used in practice and what strategies are being employed towards the goal of sustainable development. The practices are assessed for their empathies as per the currently defined social, ecological, economical well-being goals of sustainable development. The paper concludes ...

Editorial Boletín 'Ciudad Segura' Nº 39. Bienes Culturales: Venta, Jaime Erazo Espinosa

Jaime F. Erazo Espinosa

El Tráfico Ilícito de Bienes Culturales (TIBC), demanda, entre otras, de tres condiciones para su funcionamiento; la primera se vincula con la debilidad de la legislatura nacional para penalizar esta problemática; la segunda con responsabilizar y focalizar a únicas personas (por ejemplo banqueros) el surgimiento o mantención de cadenas de comercialización ilegal y la consecuente destrucción del patrimonio; y la tercera con preocupantes vacios conscientes de valor de los/as ciudadanos/as por lo que fue y lo que es nuestra historia y nuestra cultura. Demanda también, para su mismo funcionamiento, de opacos y distintos mecanismos: autorizaciones de importación y ...


Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris 2009 University of New Orleans

Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris

Renia Ehrenfeucht

Sidewalks have become important to diverse planning concerns that range from walking for health and transportation to economic development, recreation and environment improvement. Given their multiple roles in rapidly changing cities, this paper asks ’how should we plan sidewalks?’ We contend that planners can create better cities for more people by reconsidering three facets of sidewalk planning: sidewalks as infrastructure, sidewalks as spaces of everyday life, and sidewalks as leisure destinations. The objective is to build quality infrastructure and more adaptable spaces throughout the city

What Would Coase Do? (About Parking Regulation), Michael E. Lewyn 2009 Florida Coastal School of Law

What Would Coase Do? (About Parking Regulation), Michael E. Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

American municipalities typically require landowners to provide visitors and guests with ample amounts of parking, in order to prevent externalities such as cruising (drivers wasting gasoline and polluting the air while searching for scarce parking). However, minimum parking requirements may create social harms that outweigh this benefit. By artificially increasing the supply of parking, minimum parking requirements effectively subsidize driving, thus increasing rather than decreasing pollution and congestion.


Community Benefits Agreements And Local Government: A Review Of Recent Evidence, Laura Wolf-Powers 2009 University of Pennsylvania

Community Benefits Agreements And Local Government: A Review Of Recent Evidence, Laura Wolf-Powers

Laura Wolf-Powers

As community benefits agreements (CBAs) become more common in urban redevelopment, they are generating conceptual confusion and political controversy. Planners who encounter CBA campaigns in practice have limited means of evaluating CBAs’ desirability and likely impact without a more complete understanding of how they interact in practice with municipal government leadership and policy. This paper examines four urban redevelopment projects in which community benefits agreements have been enacted by some combination of community organizations, legislators and developers. While much of the expository literature on community benefits agreements is focused on the inclusivity and political moxy of local organizing coalitions, I ...

The Changing Port City: Sustainable Waterfront Revitalisation, Zenia Kotval, John Mullin

John R. Mullin

Harbour communities on both sides of the Atlantic are undergoing dramatic
change. These changes are being brought about as a result of trade agreements, environmental
factors, marketing trends and consumer preferences, among other factors. At
the same time, these ports are fragile. They are old, full of history and culture, have
dated infrastructure systems and must struggle to meet new transport and production
technologies. The thesis of this paper is that harbour communities must have a strong,
planned sense of direction if they are to remain economically and culturally important.
This direction must be guided by a long-term comprehensive plan ...
