Son diversos los motivos que provocan cambios de contenido en la composición de las ciudades; éstos dan lugar a nuevos protagonismos y a nuevos fines, ambos de distinta índole. Los cambios son integradores, cuando los hechos (procesos y consecuencias) socioeconómicos, culturales, urbanos, entre otros, son visibles dentro del marco global (efectos en red) y del característico de cada urbe. Son históricos, cuando estos hechos se acaban y el fin de la ciudad como entidad de algo, termina. Son resientes, cuando son acciones de ir hacia adelante y el inicio de la ciudad como entidad de algo, empieza. Y los cambios ...

The Application Of Web 2.0 Technologies As An Experimental Method Of Teaching Remote Sensing At Dit, Ireland, Avril Behan Jul 2008

The Application Of Web 2.0 Technologies As An Experimental Method Of Teaching Remote Sensing At Dit, Ireland, Avril Behan

Conference Papers

This paper describes the implementation of an experimental method of delivery for a module of remote sensing material to second year students on the BSc (Hons) in Geomatics at the Dublin Institute of Technology. The project began as a reaction to poor levels of student engagement and unsatisfactory grades, as well as the requirement to focus more on real-world type problems due to the implementation of a work-placement semester for third year students. Both pedagogical considerations (movement towards formative feedback, interactivity and group-based work) and the effect of technological drivers, such as the popularity of the internet in general and ...

People In Glass Houses: The Practical And Conceptual Challenges Of Public Access In Mid-Century Modernist Residences, Alexandra Bevk Jun 2008

People In Glass Houses: The Practical And Conceptual Challenges Of Public Access In Mid-Century Modernist Residences, Alexandra Bevk

Theses (Historic Preservation)

High Modernist residential architecture of the mid-twentieth century embodied an austere beauty of simplicity and purity of form. Applying strict design theory to material and structure, architects connected man, architecture and nature in a way that enabled a surreal experience, pushing a residential structure beyond a dwelling to a spiritual place.

Over time, some of the most famous and iconic pieces of this architecture have shifted ownership and are no longer used as residences. A new demand for public access and visitation has transformed them into museums and public spaces, turning each into a piece of art in its own ...


Sustainable Tourism And Indigenous Communities: The Case Of Amantaní And Taquile Islands, Caroline S. Cheong Jun 2008

Sustainable Tourism And Indigenous Communities: The Case Of Amantaní And Taquile Islands, Caroline S. Cheong

Theses (Historic Preservation)

When I embarked on my journey to Peru's half of Lake Titicaca in the winter of 2008, I was not quite sure what to expect of myself or of the island communities I would be visiting. Preliminary research for this thesis described how the indigenous communities on Amantaní and Taquile Island were struggling to control tourism on their islands. I was, therefore, determined to be sensitive to their plight and not contribute to the patterns that led to their disenfranchisement. Apparently aware of the challenges facing the islanders, the Lonely Planet Guidebook stressed the importance of traveling with one ...


The Development Of Precast Exposed Aggregate Concrete Cladding: The Legacy Of John J. Earley And The Implications For Preservation Philosophy, Jenna Cellini Jun 2008

The Development Of Precast Exposed Aggregate Concrete Cladding: The Legacy Of John J. Earley And The Implications For Preservation Philosophy, Jenna Cellini

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis seeks to explore the development of a building material with regards to its durability and production. It does so in the examination of the advances in material understanding and technique with regards to a unique twentieth century material – precast exposed aggregate concrete. Tested, refined and later patented by craftsman John J. Earley, the precise process of creating exposed aggregate concrete cladding (today known as the MoSai technique) holds unique implications for its preservation. Analyzing what Earley - and those who helped refine the MoSai process over the years - understood with regards to the material's properties will determine whether ...

Brunswick Me: De-Militarizing The Bnas, Anne Holland, Brett Richardson, Richard Barringer

Planning

Closure of the Brunswick Naval Air Station in 2011 will have profound economic impacts on the entire mid-coast Maine region of Maine, with an estimated loss of 6,500 jobs and $330 million annual income. Throughout the Base Realignment and Closure process, Brunswick, the region, and the State of Maine followed federal rules and developed the federally-funded Brunswick Local Redevelopment Authority (BLRA) to plan for reuse of the 3300 acre base. In its planning process, the BLRA adhered to a number of well thought-out Guiding Principles, including the use of extensive public participation and the consideration of “smart growth” principles ...


Demolition By Neglect: An Examination Of Charleston's Ordinance, Meg Corbett Richardson May 2008

Demolition By Neglect: An Examination Of Charleston's Ordinance, Meg Corbett Richardson

All Theses

Demolition by neglect is an important issue in the success of a preservation program. The neglect of an historic structure to the point of demolition is a careless and irresponsible occurrence that can be prevented. The tools used to prevent this action can be difficult to enforce, but they also have the potential to be very effective. The demolition by neglect ordinance in Charleston is not effective and is not currently being enforced. This thesis explored the issue of demolition by neglect by examining the public policy issues around it, the methods used to prevent and regulate it, along with ...


Moving Historic Buildings: A Study Of What Makes Good Preservation Practices When Dealing With Historically Significant Buildings And Structures, Xana Peltola May 2008

Moving Historic Buildings: A Study Of What Makes Good Preservation Practices When Dealing With Historically Significant Buildings And Structures, Xana Peltola

All Theses

When relocating in order to preserve an historic property, there must be certain protocols in place to ensure that the historic significance is retained. Historic preservationists are not only attempting to successfully relocate a building but also to follow good preservation ethics in order to respect the current and potential site as well as the structure itself. In addition to examining how historic structures have been moved in the past and the guidelines that the National Register has developed regarding the process by which historic structures should be relocated, two case studies will also be examined. The first is Cape ...

A Conditions Assessment And Preservation Guidelines For Second Presbyterian Church’S Graveyard Charleston, South Carolina, William Preston Hamilton May 2008

A Conditions Assessment And Preservation Guidelines For Second Presbyterian Church’S Graveyard Charleston, South Carolina, William Preston Hamilton

All Theses

Throughout the history of the world the commemoration of the dead has taken many manifestations and forms. Monuments range from burial mounds and tombs to wall memorials and grave slabs. The earliest surviving architectural remains in nearly every culture are the remains of memorials to the dead which can often shed light on the lifestyles of humans from prehistoric times. Beginning in the latter part of the 18th century American graveyards began to exhibit many of the characteristics of modern burial grounds, such as individual burial pits and family grave plots. This practice was no different at Second Presbyterian Church ...


Portland Me: Affordable Housing V. Open Space, Patrick Wright, Brett Richardson, Richard Barringer May 2008

Portland Me: Affordable Housing V. Open Space, Patrick Wright, Brett Richardson, Richard Barringer

Planning

Amid an acknowledged “affordable housing crisis”, a first-time developer approaches the City to release part of a tax-acquired property, promising a smart-growth development that would provide sorely needed starter homes for working families. The case highlights the complications of balancing competing interests in Portland ME. It shows where rational planning fails in the presence of strong neighborhood opposition, a disjointed city staff structure, and the absence of political will among City Councilors. It highlights the need for champions within local government when a project evokes competing interests. It demonstrates the extent to which “words matter” to policy outcomes, and who ...

Relational Database Construction Cultural Site Stewardship Program: Quarterly Progress Report, Period Of January 2, 2008, Through April 2, 2008, Margaret N. Rees

Cultural Site Stewardship Program

The Clark County stewardship database is the only one of its kind among all Nevada counties. Funding for this database from Clark County is vital to maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of Clark County cultural resources.

Two programmers were hired to design and implement a relational database for the CSSP. During this quarter, a system was designed in ACCESS and has accomplished the following:

• Store personnel information and required documentation on volunteer site stewards. Names of all 3 52 stewards were inputted and fully populate the database. Ethics Statements and Volunteer Agreements unique to each steward are recorded.

• House confidential ...

Sustainable Portland: Implementation Series 1, New England Environmental Finance Center

Climate Change

When the Sustainable Portland Task Force Report was released in November 2007, under the leadership of Mayor Jim Cohen, Portland Councilor Kevin Donoghue had the idea that students at the Muskie School of Public Service might be able to help implement recommendations from the report. It may have helped that Kevin was himself a graduate of the Community Planning and Development Master’s program at the Muskie School, but it was a good idea nevertheless. He approached Professor Sam Merrill in the CPD program, who spoke with the new Mayor Ed Suslovic about a possible partnership between the City and ...

Editor’S Note, James L. Yarnall

Newport History

This issue of Newport History includes three articles by local authors with diverse interests and backgrounds.

The little-recognized Newport architect John Dixon Johnston is the subject of Ronald J. Onorato article. The pictorial essay devoted to the recently demolished Jamestown Bridge is written by Sue Madden, Rosemary Enright and Matt Kierstead. The last article is on the Newport estate of Theodore M. Davis by Jane Carey.

Yanet Lezama-López

Tomando como base dos de los paradigmas presentes en la práctica de la conservación (Ashworth, 1994): la preservación -de todo lo preservable- y el heritage, el patrimonio es considerado una mercancía que se selecciona, empaca y vende con fines meramente comerciales, esta ponencia presenta, desde la perspectiva del diseño urbano contemporáneo, los principios de la conservación integrada de paisajes históricos construidos propuestos por la autora (Lezama-López, 2005) para el contexto mexicano. En 2004 la autoridad municipal asume la responsabilidad de elaborar un Programa de Manejo para la Zona de Monumentos Históricos de la ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro, conocida también ...
