Promised Land? Immigration, Religiosity, And Space In Southern California, Clara Irazabal, Grace Dyrness 2009 Columbia University

Promised Land? Immigration, Religiosity, And Space In Southern California, Clara Irazabal, Grace Dyrness

Clara Irazabal

This article looks at how immigrants and their supporters appropriate and use religious space and other public spaces for religious and socio-political purposes in Southern California. While the everyday living conditions of many immigrants, particularly the unauthorized Latino immigrants, force unto them an embodied disciplinarity that maintains spatialities of restricted citizenship, the public appropriations of space for and through religious practices allow for them –even if only momentarily –to express an embodied transgression. This practice in public space helps realize spaces of freedom and hope, however ephemerally. Potentially, these rehearsing exercises can help revert internalized disempowering subjectivities and create social ...

Sketching With Code: Developing Procedural Literacy In Early Architectural Education, Nicholas S. Senske

Nicholas Senske

In the first half of this paper, I argue that basic computer programming has an important role to play in beginning design education. In the second, I propose a pedagogical framework for improving how it may be taught.


On Being Balanced In An Unbalanced World, R. M. Skitmore, David Cattell 2009 Bond University

On Being Balanced In An Unbalanced World, R. M. Skitmore, David Cattell

David Cattell

Unbalanced bidding, or bid skewing, involves the uneven distribution of mark-up among a contract project’s component items in such a way as to attempt to derive increased benefit to the unbalancer but without involving any change in the total tender price. Those who issue such contracts have reason to protect themselves from the ‘hidden’ costs of unbalancing. They typically reserve the right to reject any unacceptably unbalanced bid, but in order to do so, they have need to detect this. Models have been developed to increase both the systemised execution and detection of unbalancing but, although unbalancing is thought ...


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.


Offer Adolescents Suburban Habitat Positive Experiences In Their Neighborhood, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff 2009 University of New Orleans

Offer Adolescents Suburban Habitat Positive Experiences In Their Neighborhood, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff

Benjamin A Shirtcliff

The adolescent population living in suburban environments is very important. This reality, however, is still too recent to be considered by practitioners of the development, which would explain why the physical environment of teenagers is rarely designed to meet their needs. This article addresses the basic needs of adolescents living in the suburbs and designers suggest ways to improve their quality of life by creating fallback places in their neighborhood. The values ​​and adolescents special needs will be used to assess the quality of suburban open spaces. We mainly interressted in the physical environment, building on the studies in the ...

Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein 2009 Universiti Malaya

Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein

Hazreena Hussein

This article investigates the design and use of sensory gardens by evaluating their zones and how they are utilized. Preliminary site studies were undertaken in 14 sensory gardens around the UK, followed by more detailed data collection at two case-study sites. The aim was to discover features that enable user behaviours and use of spaces in sensory gardens. The data collection included interview, observation and behaviour mapping, which is used in conjunction with affordance theory. The findings from the data analysis also draw on Moore and Cosco’s multi-method approach.

Retos Urbano Ambientales: Disturbio Climático En América Latina Y El Caribe, Clara Irazabal

Clara Irazabal

Las proyecciones hacia el futuro determinan que podría haber un aumento de hasta 1,7°C de temperatura para el 2050 y hasta 4°C para el final de este siglo, lo que sería catastrófico para la sostenabilidad de vida en el planeta, tal y como la conocemos hoy, Los niveles de aumento del nivel del mar han alcanzado 2 a 3 mm/año desde 1980 en la región. Han sido observados también cambios en los patrones de precipitaciones, con algunas áreas recibiendo más lluvias-sur de Brasil.

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
