"The Urban Praetor's Tribunal" In Spaces Of Justice In The Roman World, Eric Kondratieff 2010 Western Kentucky University

"The Urban Praetor's Tribunal" In Spaces Of Justice In The Roman World, Eric Kondratieff

History Faculty Publications

"Book abstract: Despite the crucial role played by both law and architecture in Roman culture, the Romans never developed a type of building that was specifically and exclusively reserved for the administration of justice: courthouses did not exist in Roman antiquity. The present volume addresses this paradox by investigating the spatial settings of Roman judicial practices from a variety of perspectives. Scholars of law, topography, architecture, political history, and literature concur in putting Roman judicature back into its concrete physical context, exploring how the exercise of law interacted with the environment in which it took place, and how the spaces ...

City United, Park Fragmented, Heidi M. Hohmann

Landscape Architecture Publications

The Common Cry of Urban Development, "if you want to make an omelette, you've got to break some eggs," definitely applies to Boston's Big Dig, which has been an eggbeater in the heart of Boston for the past 20 years. Today the benefits of the demolition are clearly apparent in the open spaces of the Rose Kennedy Greenway that now stands in place of the elevated Central Artery.


Preservation And Renovation Of Historical Downtown Bowling Green: The Galloway Resort, Brandy Nicole Hill 2010 Western Kentucky University

Preservation And Renovation Of Historical Downtown Bowling Green: The Galloway Resort, Brandy Nicole Hill

Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

For the past 50 years, urban development such as suburbs, shopping malls, highways, and retail chains have impacted the way that Americans live their everyday lives. While it is nice to quickly accomplish that daunting to-do list, these developments have demolished the main streets and downtowns of America. No longer do residents enjoy scenic shopping days, coffee in the park or simply a stroll around the town. Thus resulting in downtown business establishments closing and buildings became condemned. The property around what used to be an area full of life, fun and excitement became dull, boring and underappreciated. For this ...

Ecological Engineering In A New Town Development: Drainagedesign In The Woodlands, Texas, Bo Yang, Ming-Han Li 2010 Utah State University

Ecological Engineering In A New Town Development: Drainagedesign In The Woodlands, Texas, Bo Yang, Ming-Han Li

Bo Yang

This paper presents a comparative study of two different drainage designs in a 10,930-ha new town development of The Woodlands, Texas. Open surface drainage by shallow grassed swales was used in the first two subdivisions that were developed with ecological approaches. Open surface drainage mimics the natural flow regime and is regarded to mitigate development impacts on watershed. In other later subdivisions, the drainage design shifted back to a conventional stormwater drainage system, that is, curb and gutter, drop inlet, and underground piping, known to concentrate stormwater and lead to downstream flooding. The objective of this study is to ...

Bridging The Gap Between Planning And Architecture: A Closer Look At Design Collaboration, Kelsey Jo Klein 2010 Iowa State University

Bridging The Gap Between Planning And Architecture: A Closer Look At Design Collaboration, Kelsey Jo Klein

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The two fields of Community Planning and Architecture have separately been dealing with the dilemma of suitable housing for many years; each have implemented projects and policies designed to improve conditions, some succeeded but for the most part, most failed. In today's world, integration is the key to moving forward; disciplines need to work together, instead of separately, to solve our housing problems. After many failed housing projects and policies, we have learned that the problems can not be solved by one person, or even one entity. It is for these reasons; I believe the two professions of Planning ...

From Local To Regional: Evolution Of Three Multi-Use Trails In Northeast Iowa, Nicholas E. Meyer 2010 Iowa State University

From Local To Regional: Evolution Of Three Multi-Use Trails In Northeast Iowa, Nicholas E. Meyer

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Multi-use trail development in the United States has increased significantly in recent decades. In many communities, trails are recognized as a valuable component of recreation, quality of life amenity, and source of economic development. Trails usually originate as local grassroots projects designed for specific community purposes. In Northeast Iowa, three local projects are evolving into a regional trail system whereas others remain as community resources. The central question in this study is why and how did these local trail projects evolve to become regional destination trails? Case descriptions provide a chronological history of each trail's development. Themes in trail ...

Behavioral health services utilization was then assessed based on Medicaid claims records. Results. Substantially higher levels of behavioral health services use and corresponding costs were found among heads of families with ...


Resistance: Contemporary Architecture:Sustaining Identity 2, Jim Roche 2010 Technological University Dublin

Resistance: Contemporary Architecture:Sustaining Identity 2, Jim Roche

Articles

Economic globalisation has facilitated a glut of ‘spectacle’ works of architecture worldwide that often fail to celebrate the genius loci of places or the divergence of human culture. With the current crisis in world capitalism causing a meltdown in the mad rush to overbuild our physical environment it is pertinent to consider once again that architecture can actually contribute to a broader existential understanding.

A recent one-day conference at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London posited such a proposition. Curated by the Finnish writer and theorist, Juhani Pallasmaa and moderated by Jonathan Glancy, the Architecture and Design Editor of ...


Location Choices Of Ethanol Firms In The Midwest Corn Belt, Monica A. Haddad, Gary Taylor, Francis Y. Owusu 2010 Iowa State University

Location Choices Of Ethanol Firms In The Midwest Corn Belt, Monica A. Haddad, Gary Taylor, Francis Y. Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

The Corn Belt has experienced a rapid expansion of corn-based ethanol plants. This has provided researchers the opportunity to examine the relative importance to the renewable fuels industry of several location factors previously identified as important to agro-industries. Using probit regression this study identifies the factors significant to ethanol firms’ location decisions in the four-state study area of Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska. In Iowa and Illinois, where corn is largely ubiquitous, firms move beyond corn supply to consider other localized factors in their decisionmaking process. Factors such as rail access, population density and proximity to blending terminals emerge as ...


World Bank, Francis Owusu 2010 Iowa State University

World Bank, Francis Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

The World Bank (often called simply “the Bank”) is one of the Bretton Woods institutions, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), that have their roots in the post-World War II meeting of eminent economists in Bretton Woods (New Hampshire) to discuss the rebuilding of Europe. While the Bank was to provide longer-term funds for investment in productive endeavors, the IMF was to provide short-term balance-of-payments relief.

What is often referred to as the World Bank is part of the World Bank Group, which is made up of the following five development institutions: (1) International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD ...
