Count On The Growth Pole Strategy For Regional Economic Growth? Spread–Backwash Effects In Greater Central China, Shanzi Ke, Edward Feser 2009 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Count On The Growth Pole Strategy For Regional Economic Growth? Spread–Backwash Effects In Greater Central China, Shanzi Ke, Edward Feser

Edward J Feser

This paper investigates spread–backwash effects associated with non-agricultural gross domestic product and employment growth across 922 cities and counties in Central China between 2000 and 2005. Simultaneous equation estimates find mixed spread–backwash effects from prefecture and higher-level cities to comparable or lower-level cities and counties. Spread effects of gross domestic product and employment growths are also indicated between county-level cities. However, county-level cities exerted backwash effects on rural counties. The paper discusses the implications of these findings in relation to the construction of urban economic growth zones in Central China as an important strategy of Central Rise.

The Highway And The American City, Ted Shelton 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Highway And The American City, Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton, FAIA

This book contains papers presented at The Sustainable City 2010 conference, which was the sixth edition of the International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability. That event followed the very successful meetings held previously in Rio (2000), Segovia (2002), Siena (2004), Tallinn (2006) and Skiathos (2008) and proved one more time the necessity of this scientific forum to discuss the challenging situations that the urban areas are confronting nowadays.Innovative tools are required for understanding the high complexity of contemporary cities. It is urgent to promote a more scientific approach to urban studies, inspired by Prigogine’s dissipative structures, and ...


Greenways As Instrument Of Landscape Synergism_By Sharma Archana, Translated Into Chinese By Hui-Cheng Zhong, Cornell University, Hui-cheng Zhong 2009 Cornell University

Greenways As Instrument Of Landscape Synergism_By Sharma Archana, Translated Into Chinese By Hui-Cheng Zhong, Cornell University, Hui-Cheng Zhong

Archana Sharma

This paper explores whether and how the design and practice of greenways meets the sustainable development needs of food and fuel. It outlines three predominant design typologies of greenways: connector design, containment design and composite network design. It also advocates for composite network design typology of greenways for its scalar versatility enabling neighbourhood to city level applications and illustrates the sustainable development outcomes related to socio-cultural, ecological and economic wellbeing as generated through green network design at neighbourhood scale, and. It articulates greenways as synergistic landscapes that create harmony amongst the urban system with broader biophysical system. Essentially, the paper ...


Racial Microaggressions At The University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign: Voices Of Students Of Color Living In University Housing, Stacy Harwood, Margaret Brown Huntt, Ruby Mendenhall 2009 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Racial Microaggressions At The University Of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign: Voices Of Students Of Color Living In University Housing, Stacy Harwood, Margaret Brown Huntt, Ruby Mendenhall

Stacy A Harwood

For the purposes of this report, we will focus on the racial microaggressions that students reported experiencing within the University Housing context. In general, racial microaggressions are race-related encounters that happen between individuals. Individual level encounters can be verbal, nonverbal, or behavioral exchanges between people. Microaggressions can also occur on the environmental level, which are race-related messages that individuals receive from their environment. First, we will discuss four types of racial microaggressions that students reported experiencing in University Housing, and then we will highlight three types of environmental microaggressions.


Is There An Integrated Society In Urban Neighbourhoods In Klang Valley Of Malaysia?, Nikmatul Adha Nordin 2009 Selected Works

Is There An Integrated Society In Urban Neighbourhoods In Klang Valley Of Malaysia?, Nikmatul Adha Nordin

Nikmatul Adha Nordin

One remarkable point about Malaysia is that it is a multi-ethnic country with Malays being the most dominant race, followed closely by the Chinese and the Indians which can be regarded as the minority group. This paper attempts to address the issues of social integration among these multi-ethnic groups in neighbourhoods of Klang Valley. Social integration can be best understood by the ability of a society that is composed by people of different classes, ethnicity and educational background to resolve conflicts that may occur between them. The levels of integration can be measured by levels of tolerance and interaction among ...


Alternative "More Efficient" Irrigation Systems, David Bainbridge 2009 Alliant International University (retd)

Alternative "More Efficient" Irrigation Systems, David Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Many traditional irrigation systems work well for ecological restoration projects. These demand responsive systems are very water efficient and robust and have proved themselves in the most extreme desert conditions.


The Home Savings Bank Art Project, Adam Arenson 2009 University of Texas at El Paso

The Home Savings Bank Art Project, Adam Arenson

Adam Arenson

For more than three decades, Millard Sheets and his studio of artists designed Home Savings and Loan banks throughout California, studding their iconic projects with mosaics, murals, stained glass and sculptures that celebrated both family life and the history of the Golden State. This study recovers the history of this public art, from the commissioning of the first bank branch in 1952 through the recent history of the properties’ sale. It advances contemporary urban history by chronicling a corporate investment in public memory, describing how this interplay of community banking and public art fostered an image of community in California ...

Architecture As The Psyche Of A Culture, John Hendrix

John Shannon Hendrix

In that architecture is a kind of language, with a vocabulary of foms, certain elements of architecture are shared throughout a culture, and architecture has the potential to be the most complete expression of the ideas, beliefs, and values of a culture.

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 ...
