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 ...

Las Fiestas De Quito: ¿Integración O Conflicto?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Dec 2011

Las Fiestas De Quito: ¿Integración O Conflicto?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Culminaron las fiestas de la ciudad y en el ambiente quedó flotando un sabor agridulce. Nunca antes en la historia de la celebración había estado tan presente la política, lo cual generó el fenómeno simultáneo de integración y separación, así como deterioró el sentido profundo de la fiesta. Para nadie es desconocido que la temporada taurina en América Latina nació cuando los empresarios españoles se dieron cuenta que el invierno europeo producía un receso en esa actividad económica y, por tanto, producía pérdidas de ingresos. Para contrarrestar esta situación se creó el circuito internacional del toreo, del que forman parte ...


The Potential Of Iconography As A Method In The Development Of A New Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S Dec 2011

The Potential Of Iconography As A Method In The Development Of A New Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Garden design has been described as a category of fine arts and, it has a long time interrelationship with the art of painting. Gardens can be defined as works of art due to their artistic values. Therefore, like other artifacts, they can be studied and recognized by their specific icons. Numerous famous historical gardens in the world are recognized through their individual icons. However, newly developing gardens do not yet posses any icons that represent them. Nevertheless, these new gardens should be developed, recognized and identified through their particular icons, to exhibit their exclusive identities. Hence, this paper will discuss ...


Preferred Iconography In Developing Garden Identity For Malaysia, Mina Kaboudarahangi Dec 2011

Preferred Iconography In Developing Garden Identity For Malaysia, Mina Kaboudarahangi

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Malaysia has always been proud of her unique natural environment and cultural heritages, but still is searching for an exclusive identity of its own gardens. There is a great potential for development of a garden identity for the country, based on her rich legacy in traditions, cultures and beliefs, through which she could identify herself. The nation has a complex population composed of Malay, Chinese and Indian races. Hence, the icon, form, quality and appearance that are going to be introduced for Malaysian gardens should be appreciated, valued and respected by the Malaysian publics with diverse culture and preferences. This ...


El Paso Economic Development System Review & Recommendations, Edward Feser Nov 2011

El Paso Economic Development System Review & Recommendations, Edward Feser

Edward J Feser

This report, commissioned by the City of El Paso, recommends that El Paso city government undertake a substantial reform of its economic development effort and that public and private sector stakeholders in the broader El Paso region mobilize to create an organizational vehicle for the kind of public‐private collaboration that is driving innovative economic development in many other major city‐regions in the United States. The analysis also calls for a stronger integration of physical, land use, and economic development planning activities in the city and region, consistent with a trend in international best practice in local and regional ...

Homelessness And Children's Use Of Mental Health Services: A Population-Based Study, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane, David Mandell Nov 2011

Homelessness And Children's Use Of Mental Health Services: A Population-Based Study, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane, David Mandell

Dennis P. Culhane

This study examined whether children who become homeless differ from other low-income children in their mental health service use before and after their first homeless episode, and to what extent homelessness is associated with an increased likelihood of mental health service use. Differences between children with and without new onset of sheltered homelessness in the use of mental health services emerged following homelessness and widened over time. Sheltered homelessness and foster care placement history were associated with increased odds of receiving inpatient and ambulatory mental health services. Findings underscore the importance of collaborations between homeless assistance, foster care, and mental ...

William W. Riggs

Historic Structures Report for Girton Hall, the former Senior Women's Hall on the campus of the University of California Berkeley (UCB). The primary purpose for this HSR is to document the history of the subject property, identify historic building significance and make treatment recommendation, all in order to provide and disseminate such information to those responsible for future projects that would affect the future property. Girton Hall was designed and constructed in 1911 to provide a meeting and social hall dedicated to women students and their activities. It served those purposes, in a waning capacity, between 1911 and 1969 ...


Criminalizar O Legalizar ¿Esa Es La Pregunta?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Nov 2011

Criminalizar O Legalizar ¿Esa Es La Pregunta?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Luego de 40 años de la guerra al narcotráfico, política declarada por el presidente Nixon con un presupuesto inicial de 100 millones de dólares, hoy muchos especialistas la consideran un verdadero fracaso. El presupuesto de los EEUU para este año llega a $ 17.500 millones de dólares (aunque se estima en más de 45 mil millones de dólares), los ingresos que el narcotráfico genera van entre 500 y 600 mil millones de dólares, las instituciones democráticas han sido vulneradas (Estados fallidos), la globalización del consumo y el incremento de las violencias conexas es absolutamente inconmensurable. Por eso en la actualidad ...


De Invasores A Invadidos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Nov 2011

De Invasores A Invadidos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Tal cual lo reseña el libro clásico de Alfredo Rodríguez y Gustavo Riofrio –que está cumpliendo 40 años en estos días- los barrios populares de América Latina pasaron de ser invasores a ser considerados invadidos, dada la presencia significativa de las ONG, congregaciones religiosas, universidades, instituciones públicas y centros de investigación. Hoy esta realidad vive un cambio radical: las nuevas invasiones, definidas como operaciones de pacificación de los barrios en América Latina, se realizan bajo la presencia y fuerza de las armas; allí los operativos conjuntos entre la Policía y las Fuerzas Armadas, que paulatinamente empiezan a copar la escena ...


"Else-Where": Essays In Art, Architecture, And Cultural Production 2002-2011, Gavin W. Keeney Nov 2011

"Else-Where": Essays In Art, Architecture, And Cultural Production 2002-2011, Gavin W. Keeney

Gavin W Keeney

“Else-where” is a synoptic survey of the representational values given to art, architecture, and cultural production from 2002 through 2011. Written primarily as a critique of what is suppressed in architecture and what is disclosed in art, the essays are informed by the passage out of post-structuralism and its disciplinary analogues toward the real Real (denoted over the course of the studies as the “Real-Irreal” or “Else-where”).

The essays collected in “Else-where” cross various disciplines, inclusive of landscape architecture, architecture, and visual art, to develop a nuanced critique of an emergent formal regard in the arts that is also an ...

Nonlinear Concrete Behaviour, Marian Sabau, Traian Onet Nov 2011

Nonlinear Concrete Behaviour, Marian Sabau, Traian Onet

Marian Sabau

This paper presents an overview of nonlinear behaviour in reinforced concrete structures. Structural concrete is a nonlinear material both at strength limit states and service loads. Are presented terms of effects that are primarily observed in concrete, steel or a combination of the two. When considering nonlinear behaviour, an important aspect is whether or not strain localization will occur as size effects. The model must first be validated by experiments and benchmark tests to ensure the safety and reliability criteria. In nonlinear finite element procedures, engineers must check their finite element discretization and modelling assumptions used in their analyses. Advanced ...


Visual Preferences For The Development Of A Malaysian Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S, Suhardi Maulan Nov 2011

Visual Preferences For The Development Of A Malaysian Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S, Suhardi Maulan

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Malaysia is a developing country that has been experiencing rapid development since its independence in 1957. The country-with its unique natural and cultural heritage-is in need of projecting its own landscape identity through the development of a distinct national garden identity. This paper discusses a study that used Content Identifying Methodology to determine Malaysian public preferences among the iconographies of four selected well-established gardens, with the purpose of determining visual preferences of Malaysians for their own developing gardens. The results of the study found that plants, water, and traditional architectural features imbued with meaning were the preferred elements for a ...


Hacia Una Nueva Comprensión De La Violencia Y La Seguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Oct 2011

Hacia Una Nueva Comprensión De La Violencia Y La Seguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La violencia se ha convertido en uno de los principales temas del debate académico y político, posicionándose significativamente tanto en la agenda pública como en la agenda política de América Latina. Sin embargo, existe gran preocupación respecto de lo poco que se conoce; al extremo que se convierte en una necesidad ineludible el comprender el fenómeno en su conjunto -en cada contexto histórico- marcado por la alta criminalidad, la inseguridad y las políticas ineficaces. Como punto de partida es necesario hacer una primera precisión conceptual respecto de la violencia; por un lado, no debe ser entendida como una patología social ...

Young Adult Outcomes Of Youth Exiting Dependent Or Delinquent Care In Los Angeles County, Dennis P. Culhane, Thomas Byrne, Stephen Metraux, Manuel Moreno, Halil Toros, Max Stevens

Dennis P. Culhane

This report investigates the young adult outcomes of youth who age-out of or otherwise exit Los Angeles County’s child welfare supervised foster care system and/or juvenile probation system. Two cohorts of young adults from both systems were selected for analysis. Within the two cohorts, this study focuses on three groups of youth exiters: (i) The child welfare (CW) group is comprised of youth who exited from a child welfare out-of-home placement between the ages of 16 and 21; (ii) the juvenile probation (JP) group is made up of youth who exited from any type of juvenile probation supervision ...

Fernando Carrión Mena

Este domingo 30 de octubre se realizarán las elecciones locales en Colombia, para seleccionar 1.103 alcaldes y los miembros de los concejos municipales; así como 32 gobernadores y los representantes ante las asambleas departamentales.

El saldo es verdaderamente aterrador: 41 fueron asesinatos, 87 amenazados, 22 sufrieron atentados y 7 fueron secuestrados; estas cifras muestran un incremento del 5% de los hechos generales de violencia y un incremento del 52 por ciento ...

Peatonización Del Centro Histórico, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Oct 2011

Peatonización Del Centro Histórico, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El Municipio de Quito busca peatonalizar de manera permanente el centro histórico fundacional de la ciudad, en el límite del área comprendido por las calles Guayaquil, Mejía, Benalcázar y Sucre. Para conocer las bondades y los problemas que la propuesta puede acarrear se suspendió el tránsito vehicular los días del Viernes 23, Sábado 24 y Domingo 25 de septiembre pasado, en el marco de la Semana de la Movilidad. En principio los asistentes a las jornadas de los tres días lo recibieron con muy buenos ojos, a pesar de que la propuesta tiene implicaciones estructurales que deben ser sopesadas.

Vicente Fox: “Alto Al Fuego”, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Oct 2011

Vicente Fox: “Alto Al Fuego”, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Vicente Fox fue presidente de México en el sexenio que va desde el 1 de Diciembre del año 2000 hasta el 30 de noviembre de 2006. Es miembro del Partido de Acción Nacional (PAN), cuya tendencia es de derecha. Desde el año 2006 le reemplazó en tan alto cargo público el también militante del PAN Felipe Calderón, quién inició una política antidrogas diametralmente opuesta a su antecesor. Mientras en el período de Fox la violencia homicida estuvo en los niveles históricos de México, en lo que va del período del presidente Calderón tenemos alrededor de 40 mil asesinatos, el incremento ...

Fernando Carrión Mena

El miércoles 28 de septiembre pasado, en un operativo policial, se detuvo al Comandante de la Policía acantonado en la provincia de Esmeraldas, al presidente de la asociación de residentes españoles en Esmeraldas, entre otras personas.

En el operativo, además de las detenciones de personas, se decomisó una tonelada de droga y mucho dinero en efectivo.

Este operativo fue resultado de un gran trabajo de la policía como institución. Hay que resaltar: primero, la labor en ...

La Policía En El Laberinto Del 30-S, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Oct 2011

La Policía En El Laberinto Del 30-S, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El día de ayer se conmemoró el llamado 30-S. Desgraciadamente por el nivel de polarización existente muchos de los problemas estructurales que quedaron en evidencia se han disipado. Dentro de ellos el principal y más importante tiene que ver con una de las instituciones más importantes de la democracia y de la calidad de vida de la población: la Policía Nacional. Desgraciadamente también en este último año se ha incrementado su descrédito, desprestigio y desinstitucionalización, cuando debió haberse planteado su gran Reforma. Con el retorno a la democracia en los años 1979-80, las Fuerzas Armadas regresaron a los cuarteles, comenzando ...
