Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris

Renia Ehrenfeucht

Sidewalks have become important to diverse planning concerns that range from walking for health and transportation to economic development, recreation and environment improvement. Given their multiple roles in rapidly changing cities, this paper asks ’how should we plan sidewalks?’ We contend that planners can create better cities for more people by reconsidering three facets of sidewalk planning: sidewalks as infrastructure, sidewalks as spaces of everyday life, and sidewalks as leisure destinations. The objective is to build quality infrastructure and more adaptable spaces throughout the city

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.


Sprawl In Canada And The United States, Michael E. Lewyn 2009 Florida Coastal School of Law

Sprawl In Canada And The United States, Michael E. Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

The purpose of this paper is to ascertain (1) whether suburban sprawl is as widespread in Canadian metropolitan areas as in their American counterparts, and (2) whether Canadian government policies, and in particular Canadian municipal land use and transportation policies, encourage sprawl. The thesis concludes that sprawl is less widespread in two respects. First, Canadian central cities have not declined to the same extent as American central cities. Second, urban and suburban Canadians are less dependent on automobiles than are Americans. The thesis goes on to point out that in Canada, as in the United States, government land use and ...

El Laberinto De Las Centralidades Históricas En América Latina. El Centro Histórico Como Objeto De Deseo, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Para desarrollar esta propuesta, el libro seguirá una lógica de exposición organizada bajo seis capítulos de desarrollo secuencial, que tienen un hilo con- ductor en el hecho de que los centros históricos tienen historia y son históricos. El capítulo 2, El objeto de pensamiento, aboca el conocimiento de las corrientes, categorías y principios que permiten comprender el centro histórico dentro de la nueva coyuntura urbana (nuevo patrón de urbanización), modificando así los instrumentos teórico-metodológicos tradicionales. Estas concepciones se desarrollan con base en lineamientos que conceptualizan el centro histórico como relación social, configurada desde las distintas variables multi-disciplinares que lo conforman ...

Estamos finalizando la temporada de fútbol en Europa y con ella la compra y venta de entrenadores y futbolistas empieza a moverse con fuerza. La oferta y demanda de los “pies de obra” se abren implacablemente, con lo cual los países importadores son los que imponen las normas y las reglas del mercado. No solo que dividen al mundo según las estaciones de su temporada, con lo cual los países exportadores tienen que acomodarse haciendo dos torneos por año, sino también las nuevas modalidades de contratación de futbolistas sigue la lógica de los clubes importadores.

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.
