Reina Del Camino, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Dec 2010

Reina Del Camino, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El 24 de diciembre pasado se produjo uno de los tantos accidentes viales que ocurren en las carreteras del país; con un saldo francamente doloroso: 38 personas fallecidas y 32 lesionadas, de los 83 pasajeros que llevaba el bus número 57 de la Cooperativa Reina del Camino. En este accidente se han encontrado muchas anormalidades, como son: problemas mecánicos en los frenos y en la caja de cambios, superabundancia de pasajeros, exceso de velocidad, chofer sin licencia de conducir y distinto al que fue autorizado a la salida de la terminal de Quito y carencia de controles en los 300 ...


Populismo Pen, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Dec 2010

Populismo Pen, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La violencia crece exponencialmente según las encuestas de victimización y las denuncias hechas por la población, al extremo que la mayoría de los habitantes se consideran víctimas. Una situación como la descrita tiende a modificar el peso relativo de la relación entre técnicos, políticos y ciudadanía en la determinación de las políticas de seguridad ciudadana. Poco a poco los primeros son relegados, los segundos “representan” a la ciudadanía y los terceros asumen un rol cada vez más protagónico. Por eso el oficialismo y la oposición se disputan la oferta de “mano dura”, más como búsqueda de legitimidad política que como ...


Designing For Future Building Adaptive Reuse Using Adaptstar, Sheila Conejos, Craig Langston Dec 2010

Designing For Future Building Adaptive Reuse Using Adaptstar, Sheila Conejos, Craig Langston

Sheila Conejos

Designing future buildings with embedded adaptive reuse potential is a useful criterion for sustainability. Adaptive reuse is an emerging and significant design strategy that supports global climate protection and emissions reduction. Building adaptive reuse is a viable alternative to demolition and replacement; it entails less energy and waste, and can offer social benefits by revitalizing familiar landmarks and giving them a new lease of life. This paper describes the development of a new rating tool known as adaptSTAR, suitable for assessing future adaptive reuse potential at the time a building is designed. This paper reports on the methodology used to ...

Is Leed A True Leader? Studying The Effectiveness Of Leed Certification In Encouraging Green Building, Megan M. Turner Dec 2010

Is Leed A True Leader? Studying The Effectiveness Of Leed Certification In Encouraging Green Building, Megan M. Turner

Pomona Senior Theses

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (or LEED) is the most commonly used green building rating system in the United States, bestowing upon LEED certified buildings the prestige of being considered more sustainable than their non-certified neighbors. The public often assumes that LEED certified buildings are completely sustainable or even net-zero with regards to greenhouse gas emissions, but in actuality buildings certified under the most popular version of LEED are only required to be 15% more energy efficient than required by most state building codes – a far cry from the energy usage cuts needed to stave off global warming. By ...


La Fiesta Quiteña, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Dec 2010

La Fiesta Quiteña, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las fiestas de Quito tienen alrededor de 60 años de vida. Nacieron del impulso del Diario Últimas Noticias, una licorera nacional y los empresarios taurinos españoles, todos vinculados con una propuesta de hispanidad que tiene su punto central en la fundación española de la urbe. De aquella época para acá muchos cambios se han producido.

La fiesta nació en el barrio aristocrático de La Mariscal Sucre (Parque Gabriela Mistral) y rápidamente se extendió por todos los barios de la ciudad, para convertirse en un festejo masivo de la ciudad y también diferenciado socialmente, según el carácter de los espacios: los ...


The Management Of Built Heritage: A Comparative Review Of Policies And Practice In Western Europe, North America And Australia, Tracy Pickerill, Lynne Armitage Dec 2010

The Management Of Built Heritage: A Comparative Review Of Policies And Practice In Western Europe, North America And Australia, Tracy Pickerill, Lynne Armitage

Lynne Armitage

Internationally, patterns of government policy are trending away from traditional approaches to the conservation of the built heritage involving direct public funding, limiting subsidy and acquisition to the most cherished exemplars of national character. The evolving contemporary approach is one of partnership between stakeholders in the public and private domain to leverage their relative strengths whilst recognizing the constraints of market conditions and public sector imperatives. As a consequence of the limited ability of the untrammelled property market to incorporate values of cultural heritage which accord with those held by the broader voting public a continuum of legislative regimes has ...

Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone Dec 2010

Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

Norman Morrison Isham was an authority on Newport’s Colonial architecture and was hired to guide local restoration projects in Newport, Rhode Island. These projects, ranging in date from 1914 to 1931, included the Redwood Library, the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House, The Colony House, and the Brick Market. Isham’s work is representative of an early period of preservation, and as such, Isham worked prior modern day historic preservation standards and guidelines. An analysis of Isham’s restoration work in Newport provides insight into the elements that compose his preservation theory and how his theory, as carried out with Colonial era structures ...

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

This studio was based on the Fairmount Greenway that was developed through a series of public meetings with the neighborhood community and with consultants from the firm Crosby, Schlessinger and Smallridge (CSS). The Fairmount Greenway, while drawing its identity from the traditional greenway model is in fact a reinterpretation of an urban greenway. The greenway path follows along both primary and secondary city streets because of the lack of space along the rail right-of-way. The Fairmount Greenway begins at what will be a new station stop at New Market South Bay near Upham’s Corner in northern Dorchester. The greenway ...

Barelas Rail Yard Redevelopment: A Stakeholder Assessment, Michael Furze Dec 2010

Barelas Rail Yard Redevelopment: A Stakeholder Assessment, Michael Furze

Architecture and Planning ETDs

Community-based redevelopment of Albuquerque, New Mexicos twenty-seven acre Barelas Rail Yard site represents one possible outcome of the ongoing redevelopment process. This thesis uses semistructured interviews with neighborhood residents and community activists to reveal visions and concerns about the future of the site from beyond the profit-driven approach of typical contemporary projects. Through interviews and the case studies, I provide recommendations for discussion and capacity-building that allows neighborhood residents to better navigate a complex political landscape and influence the redevelopment of the site through a community-based process that brings together multiple visions of renewed activity on the site that respects ...


Calligraphy Tablets In The Forbidden City, Jianrong Wang Dec 2010

Calligraphy Tablets In The Forbidden City, Jianrong Wang

Bridgewater Review

The calligraphy tablets hung over each main gate and building in Beijing’s Forbidden City, although often neglected by visitors, actually are special embodiments of traditional Chinese concepts either well known or maybe unexpected by their readers. Besides explaining architectural functions, the tablets also can be read as means of decorating the architecture, conveying political ideals, advocating academic achievements, expressing good wishes and depicting charming sceneries.

Green Buildings: A Maltese Perspective, Kevin Muscat Dec 2010

Green Buildings: A Maltese Perspective, Kevin Muscat

Masters Theses

As construction and building development increases in the local scene, and the threat of climate change escalates, addressing green buildings on the national agenda is of vital importance. The building sector has a significant potential to implement positive change and hence become more efficient in terms of resource use. The term ‘green’ has been widely used throughout the last few decades to denote environmentally friendly policies, principles and measures. The ever growing popularity of the term was brought about by increasing concerns and issues such as those pertaining to climate change, energy crisis and resource depletion. Central to this debate ...

Transportation Energy Analysis For Single-Family Residential Construction In California, Tyler Langley

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Transportation Energy Analysis for Single-Family Residential Construction in California

Tyler Langley

Since the oil crisis of 1973, energy use in the United States of America has been a growing area of concern. Studies have shown that the construction industry is responsible for almost half of all annual energy consumption. With this awareness, the analysis of energy use within the related construction fields has become an emergent subject. One facet of construction energy use that has been less studied than others is that of the energy consumed in transporting building materials from manufacturing plants to construction sites. This thesis proposes a ...


Nonlinear Modeling Of A Sustainable Material, Jorien Gill Baza Dec 2010

Nonlinear Modeling Of A Sustainable Material, Jorien Gill Baza

Master's Theses and Project Reports

This study developed a nonlinear constitutive model for a sustainable orthotropic material. Existing methods for constitutive models of wood were improved upon to include the nonlinear stress-strain response not only in the two orthogonal axes but at any orientation to the strong axis of the material. This method also simplifies the nonlinear stress-strain relationships into bilinear stress-strain curves which can be valuable in hand calculations as well as finite-element analyses. The effectiveness of the proposed constitutive model is demonstrated by comparing bilinear stress-strain predictions to experimental data.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles For Post Disaster Surveys, Thor Liland Larsen Dec 2010

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles For Post Disaster Surveys, Thor Liland Larsen

Master's Theses and Project Reports

In the current built environment, structures require regular observation and maintenance. Many of these structures can be quite challenging to evaluate. The required scaffolding, lifts, or similar access facilities can become quite costly to rent and construct, and can be a long term disturbance to those who use and manage the particular structure. Furthermore, there are situations where examination for the purpose of detailed analysis can be quite hazardous, if not entirely unsafe for humans. In a post-disaster environment traditional methods may not be safe or adequate for gaining access to parts of a structure that require observation or analysis ...


Recommendations For The Chamlidere Petrified Forest Management Plan, Fatma Ertem Dec 2010

Recommendations For The Chamlidere Petrified Forest Management Plan, Fatma Ertem

Theses and Dissertations

Anything inherited from our ancestors or from nature can be considered as our heritage. Heritage can be classified as cultural and natural heritage. Turkey has been the cradle of many civilizations, religions, and ethnic groups because of the unprecedented natural heritage and critical geopolitical location of Anatolia. Given all the treasure of cultural and natural heritage in Turkey, heritage management practices have not been emphasized as they deserve. A petrified forest was found in Chamlidere, Ankara (Turkey) in 2004. Chamlidere petrified forest preserves information related to the biodiversity of forests in the Galatian Volcanic Province during the Early-Middle Miocene. When ...


The State Of Integrated Open Space Planning: Toward Landscape Integrity?, Lindsay Ex Dec 2010

The State Of Integrated Open Space Planning: Toward Landscape Integrity?, Lindsay Ex

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Open space planning has been present within the United States for over a century. Traditionally, open space planning efforts tend to focus more exclusively on either socially-based (e.g., recreational, scenic, or park planning) or ecologically-based (e.g., preserves, habitat networks or more general conservation planning) planning efforts. This separation of ecological and social frameworks in open space planning is reinforced by a persistent cultural model, where community and conservation are seen as opposing forces instead of partners.

While recent open space planning efforts have begun to integrate social and ecological frameworks into one plan, the majority of our knowledge ...


Landscape, Kitchen, Table: Compressing The Food Axis To Serve A Food Desert, Shannon Brooke Elliott Dec 2010

Landscape, Kitchen, Table: Compressing The Food Axis To Serve A Food Desert, Shannon Brooke Elliott

Masters Theses

In the past, cities and their food system were spatially interwoven. However, rapid urbanization and the creation of industrialized agriculture have physically isolated and psychologically disconnected urban residents from the landscape that sustains them. Cities can no longer feed themselves and must rely on a global hinterland. Vital growing, preserving, and cooking knowledge has been lost, while negative health, economic, and environmental effects continue to develop from this separation. Low-income neighborhoods have significantly been affected where a lack of income and mobility pose barriers to adequate food access. Architects have addressed food issues individually, but have yet to take an ...


Los Mitos De La Inseguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Nov 2010

Los Mitos De La Inseguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Populismo penal nunca resolvió problemas de violencia, aunque a corto plazo ha permitido la legitimidad política de sus defensores

Como nunca y con una fuerza inusual ha aparecido en esta semana un conjunto de mitos respecto de la inseguridad ciudadana en el país y, lo más grave de ello, que las políticas oficiales y las de la oposición se asientan sobre ellas.

Sin duda, el primero y más importante es aquel que tiene que ver con el peso que se asigna a las demandas de seguridad que vienen de la población, por encima de los hechos de violencia objetivamente producidos ...
