Lincoln Cathedral: A Work Of Art, John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Lincoln Cathedral: A Work Of Art, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

Lincoln Cathedral is a work of architecture, and a work of art, as opposed to a bicycle shed, because the architectural forms of the cathedral contradict the structural function which they are supposed to visually represent.


Neoplatonism In The Liber Naturalis And Shifa: De Anima Or Metaphysica Of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), John Hendrix 2009 Roger Williams University

Neoplatonism In The Liber Naturalis And Shifa: De Anima Or Metaphysica Of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

Platonic and Neoplatonic concepts can be seen to be interwoven with the basic Aristotelian model of intellect which Avicenna develops in his Liber Naturalis and Metaphysica. Influential Plotinian conceptions include reason principle and intellectual principle, the ascent to intellection through dialectic, the differentiation of intelligibles in the imaginative faculty, the sensible form as representation, and the source of the intelligible form exterior to intellect.

Daylighting And Urban Form: An Urban Fabric Of Light, Mark DeKay 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Daylighting And Urban Form: An Urban Fabric Of Light, Mark Dekay

Mark DeKay

This article attempts to answer the question, "What would the form of the city be like if we were to take seriously the provision of daylight to all buildings?" Previous work by this author reviewed existing daylight planning tools and found that they do not assure a predictable level of daylight. Previous work also identified an empirical relationship between daylight levels inside buildings and the street canyon ratios--the Daylight Access Rule--as an objective basis for establishing development guidelines. This study identifies the important parameters available to designers and regulators that are necessary for urban daylighting. The results of the ...

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 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

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.
