Cultura Urbana: ¿Un Asunto De Imaginarios?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Cultura Urbana: ¿Un Asunto De Imaginarios?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las ciudades se han estudiado desde ámbitos distintos, por ejemplo, desde las estructuras físico-espaciales, propias del urbanismo, desde la perspectiva económica a través de la renta del suelo o localización industrial, o a partir de la estructura social identificando c1ases, grupos, sociedad local. Pero última mente se ha desarrollado una nueva óptica que tiende a llenar un vacío: la perspectiva ciudadana de la ciudad que se concibe, construye y reconstruye desde su cotidianidad, desde el "espíritu de la ciudad" Por otro lado, la cultura ha sido entendida como si proviniera de una trilogía: lo culto (bellas artes), lo popular (folclore ...


The Risks Of Unbalanced Bidding, David William Cattell, Paul Anthony Bowen, Ammar P. Kaka 2010 Bond University

The Risks Of Unbalanced Bidding, David William Cattell, Paul Anthony Bowen, Ammar P. Kaka

David Cattell

Unbalanced bidding models have largely ignored the risk aspect of item pricing. Many researchers have acknowledged that there are considerable risks associated with unbalancing a bid but little has been done to describe these risks, let alone model them. A new framework is proposed by which all of these risks can be assessed. It identifies that these risks comprise the risk of rejection, the risk of reaction, and the risk of being wrong. It is further proposed that the value-at-risk ('VaR') method of measuring risk is a convenient way by which to combine all of these risks into one composite ...

Si He De Morir Mañana Que Me Maten De Una Vez, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Dos hechos ocurridos recientemente en la frontera de México con los Estados Unidos están produciendo un cambio importante en la opinión pública norteamericana y, por lo tanto, en las políticas frente al narcotráfico en la región transfronteriza: por un lado, los cárteles mexicanos están generando complicidad en las autoridades estadounidenses, al extremo que el FBI considera que los agentes federales ubicados en la frontera con México son una “amenaza real para la seguridad nacional”. Solo el año pasado se realizaron más de 100 detenciones y más de 130 policías estatales y federales fueron procesados por actividades ilícitas en la frontera ...


A Spiritual Journey: Redefining The 21st Century Catholic Church, Kevin R. Correia 2010 Roger Williams University

A Spiritual Journey: Redefining The 21st Century Catholic Church, Kevin R. Correia

Architecture Theses

With an increasing Catholic population and diminishing vocations to the priesthood, Catholic parish communities are rethinking their church buildings, as they are forced to combine with other communities. The design of a Catholic Church and parish center that respects the tradition of the past and embraces the contemporary religious, architectural, and social needs is the vision for the 21st century Catholic Church. Catholic churches must respond to the Second Vatican Council’s amendment to have a greater participation of the laity in the liturgy. The design focuses on the procession, moments of use, and light that guide the spiritual journey ...


Material Imagination In Digital Culture, Mark Cabrinha 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Material Imagination In Digital Culture, Mark Cabrinha

Architecture

Only 8 years ago when I began teaching, integrating digital media in the design studio was hampered by institutional politics and lack of hardware accessibility. Now students come to my studio with dual monitors and are multitasking maniacs with a host of distractions and a subtle reluctance to explore and test ideas physically. As design culture becomes more and more a digital culture, perhaps the fact so much digital work looks the same is not only due to a fairly basic understanding of tools and skills, but a lack of material imagination. Digital fabrication in association with the virtual prototype ...


Implementation Of Building Information Modeling In Architectural Firms In India, Aakanksha Luthra 2010 Purdue University - Main Campus

Implementation Of Building Information Modeling In Architectural Firms In India, Aakanksha Luthra

Purdue Polytechnic Directed Projects

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an integrated process of generating and managing a building by exploring a digital model before the actual project is constructed and later during its construction, facility operation and maintenance. BIM has been adopted by construction contractors and architects in United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) to improve the planning and management of construction projects. On the contrary, Indian contractors seem to have made a head-start by using BIM in their projects, but the architects in the nation have still not embraced this new thinking and technology as a part of their way of working ...


Demolition Men: Contemporary Britain And The Battle Of Brutalism, Susannah L. Grossman 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Demolition Men: Contemporary Britain And The Battle Of Brutalism, Susannah L. Grossman

CUREJ - College Undergraduate Research Electronic Journal

This thesis examines the contentious legacy of brutalist architecture in Britain. Once the lingua franca of post-war architecture in the UK--demonstrating the principles of modernism advocated by high-profile European architects like Le Corbusier as well as socialist ethics--brutalist architecture's legacy in Britain today is both reviled and revered. The paper, by surveying three major buildings that are classified as "brutalist": Alison and Peter Smithson's Hunstanton Secondary Modern School, Erno Goldfinger's Trellick Tower, and Denys Lasdun's National Theatre, intends to demonstrate the enduring importance of brutalist architecture in Britain. By examining the difference between architectural history and ...

Los Multimillonarios, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La revista Forbes de los Estados Unidos publica anualmente -desde hace 24 años- el ranking de lo que ellos consideran las personas más ricas del mundo, provocando el orgullo para unos y el asombro para otros. Pero también le convierten en un indicador de lo que ocurre con la economía internacional. Así, por ejemplo, afirma que, gracias a la recuperación experimentada por la economía, el número de los más ricos ha experimentado un aumento, de 793 a más de 1 000 en el año 2009. ¿Y qué ha pasado con el desempleo? En épocas de crisis siempre hay alguien que ...
