The Re-Emergence Of Traditional Architecture In Greece: Kefalonia And Ithaka, Nicholas Patricios Oct 2006

The Re-Emergence Of Traditional Architecture In Greece: Kefalonia And Ithaka, Nicholas Patricios

Nicholas Patricios

The interest in antiquities in Greece began after the conclusion of the revolution that led to independence of the country in 1832. A brief history of the legislation to protect the country’s architectural heritage is traced up to the historic landmark law of 2002 that defined the concept of cultural heritage and the re-organization of government departments to achieve the law’s objectives. Beginning in the 1920s and parallel with the protection of antiquities a movement to preserve Greek vernacular architecture was undertaken that was recognized in the landmark law of 1978. The application of the laws of protection ...

Agenda: Celebrating The Centennial Of The Antiquities Act, University Of Colorado Boulder. Natural Resources Law Center, University Of Colorado Boulder. Center Of The American West

Celebrating the Centennial of the Antiquities Act (October 9)

For 100 years, the Antiquities Act has been used by nearly every President in the 20th century to set aside and protect lands threatened with privatization and development. The list of lands first protected under the Antiquities Act – and that might never have been protected without it – is truly remarkable. Many of our most treasured national parks including the Grand Canyon, Olympic, Zion, Arches, Glacier Bay, and Acadia, began as national monuments. All told, Presidents have issued 123 proclamations setting aside millions of acres of land under the Antiquities Act.

The Natural Resources Law Center and the Center of the ...

Las Políticas De Planeación De Usos Del Suelo Y La Conservación Integrada De Las Zonas De Monumentos Históricos (Zmhs) / Land Use Policies And The Integrated Conservation Of The Historical Monuments Zones, Yanet Lezama-López Oct 2006

Las Políticas De Planeación De Usos Del Suelo Y La Conservación Integrada De Las Zonas De Monumentos Históricos (Zmhs) / Land Use Policies And The Integrated Conservation Of The Historical Monuments Zones, Yanet Lezama-López

Yanet Lezama-López

Los usos de suelo desempeñan un papel crucial para la conservación de zonas de monumentos históricos (ZMHs). Pese a que el INAH es la entidad federal responsable de la conservación del patrimonio cultural, entre otras funciones sustantivas, la ley otorga la facultad de la planeación y diseño de la distribución de usos del suelo a la autoridad central en el Distrito Federal (SEDUVI) y a la local en los estados (a los municipios). El control y la expedición de licencias de usos del suelo se ejercen también localmente, las delegaciones y municipios, respectivamente. Hoy es bien sabido que la habitabilidad ...

Newport History

The Naval Historical Collection, housed in the library of the Naval War College at Newport, is the main repository for documents relating to the naval history of Aquidneck Island. In this issue of Newport History, Evelyn M. Cherpak recounts the story of Newport’s Women Officers School by delving into five large photographic albums from this collection. Scholars studying the Old Stone Mill in Touro Park usually debate its controversial origins, but Marian Mathison Desrosiers here explores a different angle. Using wills, court cases, and other primary documents, she unravels the mill’s ownership by the Arnold, Pelham, and Banister ...

South Kingstown Ri: New Zoning For An Historic Mill, Maggie Jones, Richard Barringer Aug 2006

South Kingstown Ri: New Zoning For An Historic Mill, Maggie Jones, Richard Barringer

Planning

The village of Peace Dale in the town of South Kingstown, Rhode Island, developed around several mills that commenced operations in the 1800s. One mill, known as the Palisades, is still partially active and in excellent condition, but much of its square footage is unutilized. A citizens’ group of artists and business people joined with the mill owners and the town of South Kingstown to develop new zoning regulations to make more flexible the permitted uses for the mill site. The proposed zoning will allow the mill complex to feature a mix of retail, residential, and manufacturing uses, while preserving ...

Changing Maine, 1960-2010: Teaching Guide, Richard Barringer, New England Environmental Finance Center

Maine History & Policy Development

Unlike forty years ago, none of us is now certain what the future holds for Maine – except that it will be different. Maine has been transformed by the events of the recent decades. We have come into a new world, a new time – a new historical era, if you will. This new era, like previous eras in Maine history, will require of us new ways of thinking, new ways of understanding, new ways of organizing ourselves as a community of people, if the values and culture we share and cherish are to endure and flourish.

Remembering Randolph Hall: Reuniting The Interior With Its Monumental Past, Cameron Stewart Schwabenton May 2006

Remembering Randolph Hall: Reuniting The Interior With Its Monumental Past, Cameron Stewart Schwabenton

All Theses

Through extensive historical research on the built environment of Harrison Randolph Hall, the mission is to propose a more historically sensitive design approach for the interior.

Little to no research has been published on the history of the College's built environment. The primary source for the history portion of the project was gathered from the College's Journal of the Board of Trustees, essentially meeting minutes. These are complete to the present. The Journals are a significant resource of the history of the building and its evolution. The vast majority of the project involved compiling information from the Journals ...

Newport History

The French Naval presence in Newport at the time of the Revolutionary War was the subject of a special double issue of Newport History in 2003. Caroline Frank now revisits this topic with a fresh slant, examining the social and cultural implications of the relationship between a French officer and the daughter of a local Quaker family. Bertram Lippincott turns his attention to the philanthropic Mason sisters and their unusual Rhode Island Avenue cottage, designed in 1901 by architect Irving Gill in a Spanish Renaissance Revival style derived from California Missions. Paul F. Miller offers a second and last installment ...

A Conceptual Plan For The Detroit Book And Tower Building: Exploration Of The Conjunction Of Historic Preservation And Sustainable Design Concepts, Chi-Ying Luo Mar 2006

A Conceptual Plan For The Detroit Book And Tower Building: Exploration Of The Conjunction Of Historic Preservation And Sustainable Design Concepts, Chi-Ying Luo

Master's Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

This conceptual project generated an adaptive reuse proposal for the Book and Tower Building in a registered historic district. Louis Kamper designed the thirteen-story Book Building in 1917, in the Beaux Arts style, to create elite shops and offices. In 1926 the thirty-six-story Tower Building extended the leaseable space. This proposal preserved and rehabilitated the historic features in the lobby area and renovated the retail spaces. An Asian Café was designed to contrast, but blend with, the Beaux Arts style. The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation were followed in the lobby area so as to make the ...

Heritage Protection In The Built Environment In Hong Kong And Queensland: A Cross Cultural Comparison, Lynne Armitage, Yung Yau Jan 2006

Heritage Protection In The Built Environment In Hong Kong And Queensland: A Cross Cultural Comparison, Lynne Armitage, Yung Yau

Lynne Armitage

Comparative study of the conservation policies or practices in different places is certainly a useful means of achieving a better approach to the conservation of the built cultural heritage in urban areas. In spite of the abundant literature in this field, it appears that the cultural dimensions of the issues have always been neglected. With this background, the origins of this study lie in two sets of ideas. First, protection of built heritage is a people-centred exercise so it is largely influenced by the culture of the community. Second, the effort to transfer heritage protection ideologies from the West to ...
