Applicants are required to submit two complete sets of drawings, pictures and specifications for all proposed work to include, but not limited to, new construction, additions, renovations, pools, enclosures, grading, landscaping and docks to the ArchitecturalReview Board. A survey may be required for projects and/or landscaping close to property lines.
B. The proposed building or structure is not of inferior quality such as to cause the nature of the local neighborhood or environment to materially depreciate in appearance and value in that high quality material such as anodized aluminum window, weathered reclaimed wood siding, steel-troweled stucco, cast in-place concrete, and perforated aluminum screen as detailed in the application submittal and as presented to the ArchitecturalReview Board will be used. Additionally, various design features of the project are adequately detailed to ensure quality construction.
ARB 13-186: On July 1, 2013, the ArchitecturalReview Board approved design, colors, and materials for a façade remodel and landscape plans for an existing 6-story office tower atop a 3-story parking structure with ground floor commercial.
VI. No reflective materials, including, but without limitation, aluminum foil, reflective screens or glass, mirrors or similar type items, shall be installed or placed on the outside or inside of any windows of a structure without the prior written approval of the Architectural Committee. Any enclosures, drapes, bars, blinds, shades, screens or other items affecting the exterior appearance of a structure which in the judgment of the Architectural Committee detracts from the harmonious appearance and aesthetics of Anthony Park Subdivision will be a violation of this Declaration.
DRAWINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS. A graphic description should be provided. Homeowners should not be intimidated by any shortcomings as draftsmen or architectural illustrators since a graphic description may be in the form of manufacturer's literature or photographs as well as freehand or mechanical drawings. The amount of detail should be consistent with the complexity of the proposal. Relationships of major architectural features such as existing and proposed roof lines, window sizes and alignment, building heights, roof slopes, etc., should be shown as they affect the applicant's house and, in the case of attached houses, as they relate to adjacent houses. In any case, the sketch or photograph should be accompanied by a written description.
In Chapter one, The Inheritance: Architectural Practice and Architectural Theory Today, the authors distinguish between two approaches in architectural theories: the rationalist and the empiricist approaches. The former relies on reasoning, while the latter draws heavily on tradition. The motive of both rationalists and empiricists is “enhancing the quality of life of people”. These theoretical approaches are articulated in current architectural practice in a number of manifestations, which the authors delve deeper into: neo-modernist, post-modernist, revivalist and neo-traditionalist, and ecological. Chapter two of Part I, A Framework for Theory in Architecture, highlights the significance of the
Work plan. If the scope of work encompasses the entire design and construction process, the first step is to establish acoustical criteria for each space within the facility. This can be done in the programming phase with input from user groups or in a separate docu- ment, prepared by the acoustical consultant, based on an assessment of the architectural program (especially if there are no users involved at this point). After the acoustical criteria have been established for all spaces and the quality of the sound as it relates to the budget has been determined, schematic design commences.
Students’ experiences were also influenced hugely by the projects they undertook. Generally, people in larger practices had larger scale projects in which students tended to work on smaller parts, whereas students in smaller offices had more opportunities to manage their own jobs. Andrew ‘would enjoy getting the experience of a smaller practice and doing some more personalised architecture.’ Having worked on many small house extensions, Sam liked to work on different projects in larger practices. Judith learnt a lot about timber and masonry in her job in council planning department, but she would like to know more about steel frame construction and cladding as such items, she suspected, would be used more often in her future practice. Despite working not in an architectural company but designing playground and skate parks, Oliver had a most valuable experience of management when his mentor left him in charge of the projects. However, he would have preferred to work like ‘an architect’ to creatively design a building and get it built.
Mr. Ryan’s expertise in technologically advanced automation systems gives your project team the leading edge in educational, worship, and corporate facilities design. His responsibilities include overall supervision of architectural and engineering acoustics and audiovisual systems consulting for educational, worship, and corporate facilities. He works closely with the project team leaders to develop audiovisual and acoustic/electro-acoustic design solutions to
The lesson is that architectural brand- ing has to be very carefully positioned with respect to demand. The market for a bou- tique hotel or a small residential project may appreciate—and even be willing to pay extra for—a name-brand architect. The broader market, even the luxury sec- tor, may be more value-oriented. Luxury automobiles have shown that high-end consumers are responsive to good design. To the extent that a name architect delivers a superior product, a truly better and more efficient building, he will add value to the project. The name may bring the cus- tomers in the door, but traditional values—location, price, quality—will close the deal.
where urban planning is concerned. The majority of these areas were built on the basis of architectural competitions; the city has strong traditions of arranging such competi- tions, which continue to this day, for example, five competitions in total were staged in 2001. Professor Arto Sipinen’s production, from his designs for university buildings in the 1970s right up to the present day, has brought Aalto-like timelessness to the general aspect of the city.
Architecture and urbanism have engaged sustainability as an action- oriented objective through the practice of green design and sustainable urbanism, which have several iterations. Architectural history has yet to produce a significant body of work in response to environmental discourses that are currently dominated by sustainability. The architectural history survey – when taught from an environmental history perspective – can serve the purpose of understanding not just sustainability, but the relationship of architecture and urbanism to the environment through history. I address the question, how can sustainability, a 1980s paradigm, be addressed in the teaching of the architectural history survey that ranges from pre-history to contemporary times? Sustainability is a dominant contemporary paradigm of environmentalism produced through economic development discourses of environmental management. I argue that the architectural history survey can provide opportunities to engage environmental histories in unearthing and disseminating ecological histories of architecture and urbanism. The architectural history survey – when taught from an environmental history perspective – can serve the purpose of understanding the environmental discourses that have informed sustainability historically, across different times and cultures. I propose that teaching architectural history within the larger field of environmental history is one way through which sustainability, as an environmental management paradigm, can be grasped, defined, and
Regardless of the vast range of media and modes of communication in which architectural scholarship could appear, most architectural theory till now remains limited to printed and published books, monographs and articles, principally text- based and academic in tone and style. Traditional architectural scholarship as part of the humanities has privileged single authorship over multiple authors and defended a rigorously theoretical style of argument or thesis. This mode of discourse has been characterized by “hegemonic masculinity” that is combative through words. While literary theorists, philosophers and semioticians have challenged such authority by proclaiming the “death” of single authorship because it “imposes a limit on that text" and its readings, architectural theorists have taken only very small steps to explore the use of other voices. 8
The system’s workflow is illustrated in Figure 13. The starting point of the system is a fully developed 3DRTVE, in terms of geometry, textures and lighting, for a specific purpose such as, e.g., a detailed final presentation and/or massing study. The various components of the 3DRTVE can be developed in third party digital design environments (e.g. CAD packages and image editing tools) but they must be assembled in the UnrealEditor TM . Once this has been accomplished, the creator of the architectural experience identifies and maps the architectural concepts onto the geometry; applies the cinematic mediation layer; and implements mechanisms to restraint the user’s spatial navigation. On practice, we have observed that these three steps are sequential but also interchangeable and iterative (see Figure 13).
Among the acoustic design objectives to be pursued by practitioners and researchers, alternative strategies to noise-oriented measures have been recently explored by soundscape scholars. The pioneers in soundscape research were musicians who reflected on the learning processes activated by listening, ultimately leading to an increasing awareness of the relationships characterising the environmental sound ecosystem – our acoustic ecology. This original approach weaved together different disciplines concerned with the built environment and its social system, marking the need for acoustic designers to assume creative responsibilities towards the world soundscape and its music. In some architectural design contexts, these approaches have been adopted as an educa- tional method to reflect on the interactions between architectures and the sounds they activate and modulate, expanding the traditional architectural acoustic scopes to other domains, largely social and cultural.
The most common lamps used for architectural lighting are powerful high-intensity discharge (HID) sources, metal halide and high-pressure sodium, although dimming is not reliable and the latter’s quality does not distinguish colours clearly. The excellent colour rendition and brilliant light of mini tungsten halogen means that it continues to be used, but selectively due to poor efficacies and lamp life LED being the most common replacement. The linear fluorescent has high lumen efficacy and a wide choice of colour temperatures and colours, but this relatively large, diffused, light source does not lend itself to providing narrow beam distributions in long throw projectors and is therefore more suited to wall washing and guidance tasks. As performance improves and costs fall, LEDs have rapidly become the lamp of choice. Their unique qualities – instant start, high efficacy, compact size, long life, reliable performance in cold temperatures, good colour rendition and dimmability/colour control - are perfect for most applications. A further attribute of LEDs is that their light is emitted in a specific direction. Thus modern optical designs, materials and techniques can deliver more controlled light distributions and maximise performance. Maintenance
Abstract: Problem statement: With the growing popularity of clustering application combined with
apparent usability, the single system image is in the limelight and actively studied as an alternative solution for computational intensive applications as well as the platform for next evolutionary grid computing era. Approach: Existing researches in this field concentrated on various features of Single System Images like file system and memory management. However, an important design consideration for this environment is load allocation and balancing that is usually handled by an automatic process migration daemon. Literature shows that the design concepts and factors that affect the load balancing feature in an SSI system are not clear. Result: This study will review some of the most popular architecture and algorithms used in load balancing single system image. Various implementations from the past to present will be presented while focusing on the factors that affect the performance of such system. Conclusion: The study showed that although there are some successful open source systems, the wide range of implemented systems investigated that research activity should concentrate on the systems that have already been proposed and proved effectiveness to achieve a high quality load balancing system.
