Applications Of Underground Structures For The Protection Of Critical Infrastructure, George H. Baker, Richard G. Little, Don A. Linger Dec 2002

Applications Of Underground Structures For The Protection Of Critical Infrastructure, George H. Baker, Richard G. Little, Don A. Linger

George H Baker

The U.S. President’s Commission on Critical Infrastructure Protection (PCCIP), convened in the wake of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, concluded that the nation’s physical security and economic security depend on our critical energy, communications, and computer infrastructures. While a primary motivating event for the establishment of the commission was the catastrophic physical attack of the Murrah Building, it is ironic that the commission focused its attention primarily on cyber threats. Their rationale was that cyber vulnerabilities posed a new, unaddressed challenge to infrastructure security. This approach was further questioned by the events ...

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden’S Children’S Gardening Program: A Case Study, Melanie Blandford Dec 2002

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden’S Children’S Gardening Program: A Case Study, Melanie Blandford

Masters Theses

Children’s gardening is a growing phenomenon in our country, both in schoolyards and in public horticultural institutions. In the last decade, youth gardening has been on the rise as educators are rediscovering through observation and experience that it is an effective means to educate children across the curriculum, inspire a lifelong interest in a healthy hobby, foster positive environmental attitudes, and encourage children to spend time out of doors. While several studies have focused on school gardens, few studies have researched youth gardening in a public garden setting. This qualitative case study is on the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s ...

A Model For Undergraduate Study In Urban Design, Brian Kesner, Lise Burcher, Maurice Nelischer, Vicente Del Rio Nov 2002

A Model For Undergraduate Study In Urban Design, Brian Kesner, Lise Burcher, Maurice Nelischer, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

Through this paper we intend to raise some fundamental questions regarding urban design education at the undergraduate level, and to discuss possible pedagogical strategies. The discussion is fostered by the brief description of a recently developed and still evolving proposal to provide an area of concentration in urban design education at the undergraduate level within the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at the California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, California. One of the starting points for our Cal Poly program development team - composed of faculty from the departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and City and Regional Planning - was to ...


Comparison Of Radiated Power From Structurally Different Violins, Lily M. Wang, Courtney B. Burroughs Nov 2002

Comparison Of Radiated Power From Structurally Different Violins, Lily M. Wang, Courtney B. Burroughs

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

The acoustic power has been determined from intensity measurements on three structurally different violins: a Scherl and Roth student violin, Hutchins' SUS29S, and Hutchins' mezzo violin SUS 100. While each violin was bowed with an open-frame mechanical bowing machine, the intensity measurements were made by scanning each side of the bowing machine with an intensity probe. One-third octave band sound power levels of the acoustic radiation from each of the three instruments as each of the four open strings is bowed show that the structurally different mezzo violin produces greater power at low frequencies when the lowest (G) string is ...


Real Estate Tax Credits And Other Financial Incentives For Investing In Historic Property In The United States, Robert Pickard, Tracy Pickerill Nov 2002

Real Estate Tax Credits And Other Financial Incentives For Investing In Historic Property In The United States, Robert Pickard, Tracy Pickerill

Articles

This paper examines the legislative and administrative background for designating historic property for protection in the United States (US) and their rehabilitation against a whole series of financial inducements and mechanisms. The preservation of heritage buildings in the US forms an integral part of the property market. Market forces and government regulations in the form of preservation law, standards for rehabilitation and the revenue code dictate the success or failure of renovating historic buildings. At all levels of governments (federal, state and local) there has been a growing reluctance in recent years to increase regulatory burdens and fiscal constraints on ...


Designed Physical Environments As Related To Selves, Symbols, And Social Reality: A Proposal For A Humanistic Paradigm Shift For Architecture, Ronald Smith, Valerie Bugni Nov 2002

Designed Physical Environments As Related To Selves, Symbols, And Social Reality: A Proposal For A Humanistic Paradigm Shift For Architecture, Ronald Smith, Valerie Bugni

Sociology Faculty Publications

In this paper we will begin by briefly describing the concept of self, proceed by discussing the symbolic significance of physical environment, then describe as well as propose a humanist paradigm which we believe should be employed in architectural theory and practice, and finally discuss how the shift to a humanistic paradigm might be accomplished.


Information And Communication Technology And The Part Urban Planners Can Play, P. Wales Oct 2002

Information And Communication Technology And The Part Urban Planners Can Play, P. Wales

Ned Wales

Extract:

At the beginning of the new millennium, information and communications technologies (ICT’s) are the centre of interest for both business and government. Increasingly, new development and urban policy is concerned with the opportunities and threats posed by the digital revolution and business and government need to respond strategically. The advantages of a proactive approach to ICT’s and the spin-off economic activity is the opportunity to create more sustainable communities which incorporate clean industry and reductions in use of non-renewable resources.

Despite recent market trends where correction in over speculative activity has seen technology stocks decline, it is ...


Urbanisms With Japanese Culture And Its Living Style, Madoka Yuasa Oct 2002

Urbanisms With Japanese Culture And Its Living Style, Madoka Yuasa

Architecture Senior Theses

"The current urban Japanese houses have lost its richness closely related to its nature, landscapes, and seasonal events which their traditional architectural spaces had an important role as a part of their lives. This situation is due to rapid economic grows they followed in the process of modernization after the WWII, and the urban situation with respect to architecture in their city is complex. In this project, I would like to propose a housing system that has their traditional design aspects to incorporate five senses with nature and also complex contemporary urban situation to enhance their livings."

Architecture As Constructed Ecology: The Systemic Approach To A Built Urban Landscape, Seth R. Trance Oct 2002

Architecture As Constructed Ecology: The Systemic Approach To A Built Urban Landscape, Seth R. Trance

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The contention is that in today's works of information and Ecology, the acknowledgment of each of these parts (the natural elements, social activities, and constructed landscape) of a complete system can generate an architecture that allows the urban community to coexist with the surroundings... Ecologically, how does architecture become involved with this system of parts in an urban environment?"

Architecture Thesis Prep

Showroom - Meat Packing District, NYC

"Architecture is not a question of material or structural reality but of the effects of the particular surfaces it presents to the observer, which informs a sense of identity. Identity is constructed from people's perceptions of the appearance or outer skin of a person and a building. What he or she wears or skin that covers the building defines the appearance."


Threshold: [Re]Acknowledging The Crossing, Jonathan P. Hellinga Oct 2002

Threshold: [Re]Acknowledging The Crossing, Jonathan P. Hellinga

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The contention of this thesis is that national and cultural borders and boundaries have become blurred and less noticeable by those crossing said borders. Ease of travel (both physical and informational). Free Trade agreements, and close national ties have all lent to the diminution of borders between two seemingly similar, yet culturally different, countries. Unless it is specifically expressed, the meaning of crossing a national threshold is lost in the whirlwind of everyday travel. Architecture must act as a unifier and agent of interaction through its becoming the physical manifestation of the filter through which this cross-cultural contact is made ...

Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec Oct 2002

Meridian Hill Park: The Making Of An American Neoclassical Landscape, Elizabeth Brabec

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

The neoclassical design was the dominant design movement in landscape architecture at the turn of the last century, dictating the form and design of public parks for most of the first half of the twentieth century. Meridian Hill Park, located just north of the White ouse in Washington, DC, is considered the most ambitious neoclassical park ever conceived in the United States. The paper provides an overview of the design development of the park, illustrating how classical design precedents were used to create a contemporary neo-classical park.


Sprawl, Growth Boundaries And The Rehnquist Court , Michael E Lewyn Sep 2002

Sprawl, Growth Boundaries And The Rehnquist Court , Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

This article addresses the constitutionality and wisdom of Oregon's urban growth boundary (UGB) program. The article concludes that the program is constitutional under current precedent, and that (contrary to claims made by UGB critics) there is little evidence that the UGB has caused Oregon's runup in housing prices. On the other hand, UGB supporters may have exaggerated the UGB's positive environmental results.

Research Into Evaporative Cooling Of Buildings In Maritime Climates, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn Sep 2002

Research Into Evaporative Cooling Of Buildings In Maritime Climates, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn

Reports

Concern with environmental emissions has focused attention on traditional forms of energy use in buildings, with a view to reducing and making more rational use of energy consumption. One area of concern is the traditional, refrigeration based, commercial air conditioning system, which has high levels of electrical power consumption in fans and refrigeration compressors. There is also concern among building owners and design teams, supported by the PROBE series of post occupancy studies, conducted by the CIBSE, that many buildings, with traditional forms of air conditioning, under perform in terms of occupant satisfaction, ease of operation and control, maintenance costs ...

Reverse Commuting And Job Access In California: Markets, Needs And Policy Prospects, Robert Cervero, Yu-Hsin Tsai, Joulia Dibb, Andrew Kluter, Cornelius K. Nuworsoo, Irina Petrova, M. Reinur Pohan, Martin Wachs, Elizabeth Deakin

City and Regional Planning

Getting to work, keeping appointments, and taking advantage of employment support services require suitable transportation. Many low-income Californians do not own cars and, outside of large metropolitan areas, public transit services are often sparse or non-existent, making it difficult for jobless individuals to make the transition from welfare-to-work. The challenges are especially great for those trying to get from central-city residences to suburban jobs, so-called reverse commuters, since public transportation services have traditionally been aligned in the opposite direction. Propelling the growth in reverse commuting has been a number of powerful megatrends. Topping the list has been decentralization of employment ...
