Valuing Historic Places: Traditional And Contemporary Approaches, Jeremy C. Wells 2010 Roger Williams University

Valuing Historic Places: Traditional And Contemporary Approaches, Jeremy C. Wells

School of Architecture, Art, and Historic Preservation Faculty Publications

Decisions about which older buildings, structures, and places should be conserved are fundamental to the practice of architectural conservation. Conservation professionals use the interrelated concepts of integrity, authenticity, and historical value to determine which historic places are worthy of importance. Traditionally, these concepts are predicated on preserving the object rather than conserving the meaning and values associated with the object. In other works, the goal is to benefit the object and not the people who value the object. This method, which has roots in antiquated nineteenth-century Western scientific traditions, deprecates the importance of people, processes, and meanings in how places ...


The Role Of Personality Traits And The Big Five In Predicting Future Success Of Interior Design Students, Lori A. Brunner 2010 Iowa State University

The Role Of Personality Traits And The Big Five In Predicting Future Success Of Interior Design Students, Lori A. Brunner

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

Determining a student’s potential is a serious endeavor in higher education. In this high stakes decision-making, most programs utilize a combination of assessment measures to obtain a full picture of the candidate student. In programs where only a limited number of slots are available, this selection process becomes particularly important. This process is based on the underlying assumption that academic units want to select the students who will be the most “successful” or who will succeed, given their conceptions success. Historically, admissions criteria have encompassed a narrow definition and set of tools, even when program or department mission statements ...


El Riesgo Es Un Asunto Del Déficit De Desarrollo: Entre Haití Y Chile, El Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Riesgo Es Un Asunto Del Déficit De Desarrollo: Entre Haití Y Chile, El Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En estos últimos cinco años se han producido tres de los diez sismos más fuertes que se han registrado a lo largo del mundo en estos últimos 110 años, lo cual muestra el incremento de los fenómenos y sus intensidades que, a su vez, producen un aumento vertiginoso de los impactos en la población y en la economía. Pero también en los dos meses iniciales del año 2010 hemos sido testigos de dos terremotos devastadores ocurridos en la región: el uno, el 12 de enero en Haití y el otro, el 27 de febrero en Chile; esto es, en el ...


Gobiernos Locales, Desigualdad Social Y Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Gobiernos Locales, Desigualdad Social Y Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Durante los últimos años la violencia urbana se ha convertido en uno de los temas mas importantes de la ciudad latinoamericana, debido a sus nuevas formas, a sus impactos sociales y económicos, y al incremento de su magnitud. Las violencias se han extendido en todos los países y ciudades de la región con peculiaridades y ritmos propios, provocando cambios en las urbes: en la lógica del urbanismo (amurallamiento de la ciudad, nuevas formas de segregación residencial); en los comportamientos de la población (angustia, desamparo); en la interacción social (reducción de la ciudadanía, nuevas formas de socialización) y en la militarización ...


¿El Futbol Se Ha Convertido En Una Religión?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

¿El Futbol Se Ha Convertido En Una Religión?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Estamos en la Semana Santa de la religión Católica, un hecho que en muchas ciudades se lo celebra con grandes movilizaciones. También está en debate la decisión de Joseph Blatter de prohibir las manifestaciones religiosas en el fútbol, que fuera replicada por la fundación Vaticana con mucha fuerza. Y en esta semana se juegan importantes partidos de fútbol como el de Liga con Barcelona o el de Manchester con el Bayern. Tres hechos que llevan a preguntar sobre la relación entre fútbol y religión. Como punto de partida se puede afirmar que hay dos expresiones: la necesidad de cuestionarse respecto ...


Environmental Design And Emerging Technologies: Today And The Near Future, Joseph S. Clark, Lindsay Tan 2010 Florida State University

Environmental Design And Emerging Technologies: Today And The Near Future, Joseph S. Clark, Lindsay Tan

Joseph S Clark

Technological advances over the past 10 years have caused some significant changes to the design of the built environment. These developments, and others like them, promise to change more than just how we design; they will very likely change what we design as well. The authors will present the connection between these developments in a way that projects, realistically, how technology will affect, and are employed by, the design professions in the next five to ten years. Further, the authors will address the promises and pitfalls of embracing virtual environments as the domain of environmental design.

Departmental Papers (SPP)

Faced with a difficult economic climate with high levels of unemployment and widespread home foreclosures, the Administration of President Barack Obama has created a unique opportunity to rethink and redirect fundamental policies and practices ranging from health care to regulation of the financial industry. A similar opportunity exists to change Federal homeless assistance policies and programs.


Homeless Rehabilitation Center At Lasalette Shrine In Attleboro, Ma, Reid Evan Ennis 2010 Roger Williams University

Homeless Rehabilitation Center At Lasalette Shrine In Attleboro, Ma, Reid Evan Ennis

Architecture Theses

Architecture has the power to help alleviate problems in society. However, it is not enough to simply design and build a structure and assume the problem will be solved. The people who use the building must be committed to solving the problem and must actively use the building to the full potential it was designed for. Homelessness is, without a doubt, one of the most important and obstinate social issues of our time. There are many continuing attempts to end homelessness which have been met with varying degrees of success. I feel it is critical to promote dignity and self-worth ...


Place Setting: Making Writing, Peter P. Goché 2010 Iowa State University

Place Setting: Making Writing, Peter P. Goché

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Architecture is about constructing the event as much as it is about providing the shelter for its associated rituals. Our disciplinary chore, as it relates to the Arts and Humanities, is to mine the gap that exists between the logic of objects and that of its figure; between a people and their anticipated surroundings. Our obligation as disciplinarians is to reestablish our methods of production in effort to construct artifacts that elevate the importance of a dynamic experience over theoretical ideals.

Archaeological Site Examination Of The Field East Of The Grapery/Greenhouse, Drive Circle, Straight Walk, And South Lawn At Gore Place, Waltham, Massachusetts, J.N. Leith Smith, Christa M. Beranek, John M. Steinberg

Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research Publications

A landscape restoration plan for the 45-acre historic estate of Massachusetts governor and United States senator, Christopher Gore and his wife Rebecca, recommended archaeological investigations to identify the location, character, and integrity of Gore-period features that could potentially be included in restoration efforts. Investigations began in 2004, focusing on better known landscape elements including the carriage drive, carriage house foundation, greenhouse, vegetable and flower gardens, and the site of the grapery/fruitwall (Smith and Dubell 2006). The 2008 investigations focused on the new site of the carriage house (reported under separate cover) and on lesser known elements of the estate ...

Bus On Shoulder: Local Assessment Of Shoulder Transit Lane For Regional Buses In San Luis Obispo County, Jessica R. Berry 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Bus On Shoulder: Local Assessment Of Shoulder Transit Lane For Regional Buses In San Luis Obispo County, Jessica R. Berry

Master's Theses and Project Reports

The study looks at the applicability of integrating a Bus Only Shoulder (BOS) into the intermittently congested segment of US 101 in southern San Luis Obispo County. Policy, infrastructure and implementing criteria derived from case studies in Minnesota, Florida and California (San Diego) and the 2007 California Decision Document on BOS are applied to conditions in the region. One measure of performance, time savings, is projected to 2025 to determine the value of integrating the program by that horizon year. Given the substantial potential for time savings in that future year, recommendations are made to create the appropriate policy and ...

City Of San Luis Obispo: Community And Municipal Operations 2005 Baseline Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory, Geoffrey M. Chiapella 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

City Of San Luis Obispo: Community And Municipal Operations 2005 Baseline Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory, Geoffrey M. Chiapella

Master's Theses and Project Reports

The passage of AB 32 in 2006 initiated the need for city planners in California to consider the quantification of greenhouse gas emissions at the community level in order to develop policies and programs to reduce emissions in the future. Although local jurisdictions are not required to quantify and report emissions at this time, the AB 32 Climate Change Scoping Plan recommended a reduction goal for local governments of 15 percent below today’s levels by 2020 to ensure consistent reduction goals at the state and local levels.

ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability initiated the Cities for Climate Protection (CCP) campaign ...

Las Telenovelas De Hoy, Fernando Carrión Mena 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Las Telenovelas De Hoy, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Colombia y el Brasil produjeron desde hace algún tiempo cambios importantes dentro de la las telenovelas tradicionales en América Latina, provenientes principalmente de México y Venezuela.

Es ya un lugar común señalar -entre otras- dos de las más resaltantes innovaciones introducidas: la primera, el tratamiento de temáticas costumbristas, propias de la vida cotidiana, tanto del campo como de la ciudad, y la segunda, la producción de videos por fuera de la recreación hecha en los "sets de televisión", para conferirle un significado especial al paisaje real.

En esa tónica, Colombia ha exportado al Ecuador importantes telenovelas que han dejado su ...
