Interactive Music Experience, Gaetan Jacques Jul 3013

Interactive Music Experience, Gaetan Jacques

Gaetan Jacques

In February of 2012, alternative rock band OK Go released a music video for their song “Needing/Getting”. The video explores a creative way of playing music, by driving a car through a constructed, choreographed environment. A driving track was set up as a large musical instrument which was “played” by a car. Architects, musicians, and artist are looking for innovative ways to develop active relationships between people, music, and architecture. The traditional passive relationship of these three is static, a design that does not promote interaction or participation. If we consider, behind a performance, there is a great deal ...

A Modern Craftsman Revival, Eugene M. Rader May 2015

A Modern Craftsman Revival, Eugene M. Rader

Eugene M Rader

The modern Craftsman movement is an attempt to break the contemporary mold, that is a desire to introduce a younger generation to a level of interior detail that has been lost in contemporary construction and material usage. Components such as drywall tend to envelop all contemporary residential surfaces leaving little room for tectonic expression and opportunities for detailing. Further, a modern revival would re-establish the goals of the original movement and ensure the hand was present in the design of the home, as discussed by Winter & Vertikoff, “all versions were meant to counter the excesses of the Victorian period by ...


Love Is A Two Way Street, William W. Riggs, John Gilderbloom May 2015

Love Is A Two Way Street, William W. Riggs, John Gilderbloom

William W. Riggs

A half a century ago, we were in love with our streets. They were also living things. They were the open-air living room of our society, the conduct for neighborhood play and discussion, the glue of our social fabric. One of the key urban theorists of the 20th century, Jane Jacobs wrote in Fortune Magazine that the street “…works harder than any other part of downtown. It is the nervous system; it communicates the flavor, the feel, the sights. It is the major point of transaction and communication. Users of downtown know very well that downtown needs not fewer streets ...

Study On Vibration Isolation Design Of Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Guang-Min Luo, Shiang-Yi Wu

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

The traditional cooling fans can’t be applied in modern consumer electronic products because the modern electronic products always have slim shapes. In recent years, GE’s Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets (DCJ) constructed by piezoelectricity materials had been developed and employed in modern electronic products’ cooling. The main cooling principle of DCJ is utilizing variation of heat field which is conducted by vibration to accomplish heat exchange. However, the vibration generated by DCJ will be transmitted to adjacent devices and cause the extra vibration problems. Appropriate glue and isolated damper; like rubber and cohesive polymer; can reduce the transmission of ...

William W. Riggs

In dense urban areas, surface parking often poses an opportunity cost, and reuse of the land for urban development with parking relocated to a multistory structure may be an attractive option. This paper analyzes the cost of replacing surface parking with a parking structure and finds that it may be equally cost effective to pursue travel demand management strategies. The paper analyzes what it costs to build a parking space in a multi-story structure (garage) using US average data as well as data from a substantially higher-cost case, the University of California, Berkeley. The Berkeley case illustrates how replacement of ...

Through an intersectional lens, this article reflects on the dialog between planning and gender, feminist, and queer studies to analyze the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) youth of color (YOC) community in New York City (NYC). The community is subject to multiple disenfranchisements, given their ethno-racial status, class, age, gender, and sexual orientation. This community's limited access to safe public spaces and amenities, housing, health services, job training, and other opportunities is an urban planning challenge insufficiently understood or addressed. Our methodology includes participant observation and analysis of an LGBTQ YOC tour of West Village in NYC ...


Mainstreaming Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: Transformation Toward Sustainability In Urban Governance And Planning, Christine Wamsler Jan 2015

Mainstreaming Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: Transformation Toward Sustainability In Urban Governance And Planning, Christine Wamsler

Christine Wamsler

The concept of ecosystem-based adaptation is advocated at international, national, and regional levels. The concept is thought to foster sustainability transitions and is receiving increasing interest from academic and governmental bodies alike. However, there is little theory regarding the pathways for its systematic implementation. It furthermore remains unclear to what degree the concept is already applied in urban planning practice, how it is integrated into existing planning structures and processes, and what drivers exist for further integration. Against this background, this study examines potential ways to sustainably mainstream ecosystembased adaptation into urban planning. Eight municipalities in Southern Germany were investigated ...

Urbicidio O La Producción Del Olvido, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Se puede afirmar que se trata de un concepto (urbicidio) en construcción que tiene que ver con el asesinato litúrgico de las urbes cuando se producen agresiones y acciones con premeditación, orden y forma explicita. Es decir, se trata del asesinato o de la violencia en contra de la ciudad por razones urbanas.
