DESIGN Vs INFOTAMENT
Today’s Architectural Record covers the Association of College & University Housing Officers–International’s (ACUHO-I) “21st Century Project”
which investigates college and university housing for students from the present to 25 years in the future. The winning design, “net+work+camp+us,” from a group
with Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company, of Norfolk, Virginia, uses prefab units to build adaptable residence halls that can be altered easily for
changes in population and even climate.
For an architect, architectural frameworks of space is very peculiar programme,an experience related to labyrinths of psychology.
As we’ve all experienced, if our leaders inspire us, we always perform better — and we’re far more likely to collaborate more effectively and enthusiastically.
And, as night follows day, this will inevitably lead to vastly improved innovation. The role of inspirational leadership looms large.
How to Organize Your Book’s Front Matter
how do you turn that manuscript into a book? After all, there are lots of things in books that you’ll never see in a manuscript.
Things like running heads, page numbers, half-title pages, indexes… stuff like that. And the part of a book that most confuses
new independent authors, in my experience, is the front matter. What is Front Matter Anyway?
why there are different design cultures in different schools of architecture and offices. It will introduce the idea that there are
different – though often related – aesthetic, theoretical and professional communities within the discipline of architecture,
which have different ways of valuing visual, textual and three-dimensional communication
ART Vs NATURE
Changing Things by Design The material dimensions of alienability, rivalry, and exclusion cost represent a “given” or natural
infrastructure in which informal institutions evolve, either by chance or by design, and a set of background conditions against
which formal institutions are formulated and enforced. When those background conditions
Let us return to engineering design, and to an analysis of its gradual development towards a model more like architectural design,
as we identified it in the opening section of this introduction. In the 20th century the institutionalization of a rich variety of engineering
design traditions and practices emerged. During the second half of the last century design practices gradually developed that focus on the
material product of design and on the broader social system in which these products are supposed to perform their function.
CULTURE & HERITAGE
I did not acquire a camera until 1966, when I took a trip to Cairo, Beirut, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and Spain,
en route to the United States for
a home visit in August prior to my one year Peace Corps contract renewal. As a result,
most of the early photos of my stay in Emdeber were taken
by others. Most of the images shown here were taken by Dick Coolidge during a visit in early 1966, with
a few others taken by miscellaneous others.
They convey a combination of distance and intimacy at a time when Ethiopia seemed as strange and as exotic
a place as one could imagine.

LANDSCAPE VS GARDEN

enlivened by many novel features. Their poetry, it is true, though incessantly dwelling on the subject, does not contribute much to our knowledge, for it mostly emphasizes the feelings awakened in the singer by the beauty of the garden, and the poems often extol the renown of the wealthy owner.
ART VS ARCHITECTURE
For the first time, in history, the majority of human beings live in urban regions. Although cities are among the
most complex human-made systems, they are unfortunately
environmentally, economically and socially unsustainable. How can we change this? This paper discusses an
undergraduate architectural design studio, Future Cities, which pushed
for an environmentally holistic design process, moving past the idea of single, object-like buildings. The studio taught
various digital and research methodologies to aid in the complex
issue of urban form. Emphasis was placed on balancing the huge amounts of data and information that is available in our technological age,
with the need to retain the human
perspective and experience.
Space Vs time
SPACE: A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
A]ny definition of architecture itself requires a prior analysis and exposition of the concept of space. Henri Lefebvre (1991: 15)
Everything exists and moves in space (that Panofsky would call mathematical or geometric space).
“Space and time are the framework in which all reality is concerned. We cannot conceive any real thing except under
the conditions of space and time. Nothing in the world,
