Amo El Amor De Casillas, Que Besa Y Se Va, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Amo El Amor De Casillas, Que Besa Y Se Va, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El mundial de Sudáfrica 2010 permitió al mundo entero romper con los imaginarios venidos del prejuicio, la ignorancia y del negocio del turismo: continente negro, temperaturas altas, paisaje de safaris, leones en desiertos, incapacidad de organizar un evento planetario, mundo tribal pobre, de robo y violencia. Pero también permitió descubrir un continente que tiene estaciones, que hace frío, que hay geografía de altura, que hay ciudades de gran calidad, que hay población blanca, que existe gente capaz de organizar un evento mundial y que hay instituciones.

Se puede afirmar que el último mundial de fútbol produjo un cambio en los ...


Rueda No Renovará El Fútbol Ecuatoriano, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Rueda No Renovará El Fútbol Ecuatoriano, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El partido de eliminatorias de Ecuador con Uruguay significó el fin de una época que se inició con Dussan Draskovic y culminó con Sixto Vizuete. A partir de ese momento, la Selección nacional ha pasado a la deriva, bajó al último lugar en el ranking sudamericano de la FIFA y perdió oportunidades maravillosas para renovar el sistema futbolístico del país. Los últimos partidos de la Selección que dirigió Sixto Vizuete -en este período fueron de relleno- estuvieron enmarcados en objetivos básicamente vinculados a los intereses económicos de la Federación, dejando de lado la posibilidad de construir una nueva propuesta deportiva ...


125th And Amsterdam: Creating Spaces For Social Interaction, Joshua Payne 2010 Roger Williams University

125th And Amsterdam: Creating Spaces For Social Interaction, Joshua Payne

Architecture Theses

This Project is designed to address the negative aspects of gentrification in an urban context, specifically Harlem, NYC. This is relevant to the current situation in Harlem as 125th Street, its main corridor, is being revitalized and wealthy investors are buying property in the area. Through sitting, programming and integrated design, my goal is to relieve the tension between two drastically different socioeconomic neighborhoods as they are becoming one.


Sustainable Environments And Pro-Environmental Behavior, Jessica L. Kirk 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Sustainable Environments And Pro-Environmental Behavior, Jessica L. Kirk

Interior Design Program: Theses

This thesis examines the ability of the sustainably designed building to alter occupant behaviors using LEED for New Construction and Major Renovation, Green Building Rating System™ as a standard of measure. A cross sectional survey compares the pro-environmental behaviors, intentions, environmental knowledge, and pro-environmental orientation of occupants working in a traditionally designed building and occupants working in a LEED-NC certified building located on the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Campus. While there is a visible increase in the pro-environmental variables for occupants working in the sustainable environment, data analysis indicates that these differences are not statistically significant for any of the ...


Multi-Channel Orchestral Anechoic Recordings For Auralizations, Michelle C. Vigeant, Lily M. Wang, Jens Holger Rindel, Claus Lynge Christensen, Anders Christian Gade 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Multi-Channel Orchestral Anechoic Recordings For Auralizations, Michelle C. Vigeant, Lily M. Wang, Jens Holger Rindel, Claus Lynge Christensen, Anders Christian Gade

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

Multi-channel orchestral anechoic recordings were obtained at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in June 2005. Every orchestral part of specific movements of two symphonies, Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, 3rd movement, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in g minor, 1st movement, were digitally recorded using five 0.5” DPA microphones, with four surrounding the musicians in the horizontal plane and the fifth directly above. The recordings were made in DTU’s large anechoic chamber, which has free space of about 1000 m3 and a lower frequency limit of 50 Hz. Each musician was recorded individually, and to assist with ...

'The Edge Of The Island': Neighborhood Identity And Evolving Community In 'Liminal Places', Gordon Douglas 2010 University of Chicago

'The Edge Of The Island': Neighborhood Identity And Evolving Community In 'Liminal Places', Gordon Douglas

Faculty Publications, Urban and Regional Planning

This paper examines the contemporary processes at work in urban areas without clear spatial identities that are simultaneously facing the challenges of cultural change and gentrification. I do so through the close analysis of one such ‘liminal place’ on Chicago’s West Side. I use the phrase ‘a community on the edge of the island’ to describe the area, inspired by an interview subject who referred to the tenuous search for a sort of ideal bohemian hipness as the need to stay as “close to the edge of the island” as possible without actually leaving it. Making use of ethnographic ...

Evaluation Of And Behavior Toward The Visual Retail Environment: Function Of Consumers’ Visual Aesthetic Sensitivity, Sarah Eubanks Wilhoit 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Evaluation Of And Behavior Toward The Visual Retail Environment: Function Of Consumers’ Visual Aesthetic Sensitivity, Sarah Eubanks Wilhoit

Doctoral Dissertations

The primary goal of retail environments is to stimulate positive behavior from consumers viewing the fulfilled plan of the designer or architect. This study explores the influence of the consumer trait, visual aesthetic sensitivity, upon the visual aesthetic design features of the store environment and consumer behavior. Treatment of the visual aesthetic design features of the retail environment as an integrated, holistic arrangement demonstrate the dynamic interrelation of the environment and perception as explained by Gestalt theory. Data was collected through traditional survey techniques. Statistical analyses using exploratory factor analysis, ANCOVA, and MANCOVA reveal distinct differences between consumers with high ...


Examining The Relationships Between Monaural And Binaural Classroom Acoustics Parameters And Student Achievement, Lauren M. Ronsse, Lily M. Wang, Paul L. Sim 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Examining The Relationships Between Monaural And Binaural Classroom Acoustics Parameters And Student Achievement, Lauren M. Ronsse, Lily M. Wang, Paul L. Sim

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

This study investigates the relationships between several classroom acoustics parameters and student achievement. Detailed binaural room impulse response measurements were conducted in four elementary school classrooms in a midwestern public school system in the United States. Unoccupied background noise levels were also recorded in these spaces. Previous studies have compared how different room acoustics metrics predict speech intelligibility, while another investigation examined perception-based binaural metrics in a typical classroom. This study extends these previous research areas by comparing both binaural classroom acoustics metrics and unoccupied background noise levels to each other and to the standardized student achievement scores of students ...


An Exogenous Approach To Circumventing Demolition By Neglect: The Impact Of Agricultural Preservation On Historic Colonial Towns, Galen Newman 2010 Clemson University

An Exogenous Approach To Circumventing Demolition By Neglect: The Impact Of Agricultural Preservation On Historic Colonial Towns, Galen Newman

All Dissertations

The effects of city decentralization and counter-urbanization of the American landscape have resulted in simultaneous negative impacts on both historic structures and agricultural landscapes. Rapid conversion of farmland has helped to facilitate the relocation of both populations and commercial activities in communities across the United States, leaving inner cities replete with functionless, unused, and unmaintained heritage structures. As civic core areas have become shells of their former selves, many once-vital structures have been removed while others have been abandoned and left to decay--a process known as demolition by neglect. While historic preservation efforts have attempted to salvage these historic structures ...

Intricacies Of Professional Certifications For Quality Management (Qm), Edmund R. Martelli 2010 Western Kentucky University

Intricacies Of Professional Certifications For Quality Management (Qm), Edmund R. Martelli

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The modern manufacturing marketplace is extremely complex and constantly changing. Career professionals often seek job placement, career advancement, and continuing education through professional certifications. Professional certifications in the United States (U.S.) have been evolving since 1911. In the 1950s, engineering groups established professional certifications and licenses. In the 1980s, administration of accreditation of certification programs proliferated, and by the 1990s, many government and professional organizations sought to standardize procedures for the industry. Currently, professional certifications are available for virtually every profession and issued by multitudes of organizations.

Quality management (QM) encompasses an extensive combination ofprofessional abilities. Providers of professional ...


Transformation Of Industrial Space, Xin Jia 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Transformation Of Industrial Space, Xin Jia

Masters Theses

By the 1970s the international markets had begun to change and the region’s industries were becoming less competitive. Mines began to close. Factories that had operated night and day fell silent. Their gates closed and they became “brownfield” sites in need of restoration.

For the over past 20 years, city planners regenerated these derelict industrial lands in different ways especially focus on renaturalizing them. Less attention is being paid to them as active and strategic roles in contemporary affairs. Today, people’s thinking about this issue demands more the character of sentimental stimulus- for either the re-creation or preservation ...

Maywood A-Bridged: A Thesis About Engagement, Leslie Joanne Worthey 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Maywood A-Bridged: A Thesis About Engagement, Leslie Joanne Worthey

Masters Theses

This is a thesis based on the idea that things in our environment, through neglect or ignorance, become invisible, despite an essence of virtue. The idea stems from the literary work of Fyoder Dostoevsky, particularly his depictions of fallen women. In stories such as “Notes from the Underground,” Liza, the prostitute, is his most virtuous character. My exploration of this idea culminates in the design of an advocacy center for the community of Maywood, California and the Los Angeles River, including a gathering center in which residents of the community and environmentalists may come together on equal social footing.

An Architecture Of Amelioration, Geoffrey Russell Plagemann

Masters Theses

Scar: A lingering sign of damage or injury, either mental or physical.

Technological advancement scars the landscape. It has been our practice to ignore, or worse, hide these marks that have been made as society continues to advance. Industries past left us relics and ruins of bygone eras of promise and production. The time we live in has recognized the untenable failures of past generations, however there are methods of industry that continue to injure the landscape. We will leave our scars.

In this time we must rethink the scar, define it, and recognize its beauty. The first step of ...

Los Bicentenarios: Una Disputa Por El Estado Y La Ciudad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Los Bicentenarios: Una Disputa Por El Estado Y La Ciudad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las fechas de hechos históricos notables que llegan a constituir una nación o un Estado no son solo hitos en el calendario sino momentos significativos en la historia de los pueblos, porque dejan huellas profundas y sientan bases de futuro, sobre rodo, en ciertas coyunturas de cambio acelerado, De allí que a los bicentenarios hay que entenderlos en su significado histórico y en lo que ha ocurrido desde aquella época para acá. Hoy, por ejemplo, Simón Bolivar es distinto a lo que fue en esos momentos, porque las lecturas que se hacen están cargadas de historia y de suma de ...
