Architecture as Signs and Systems Architecture as Signs and Systems Новинка

Architecture as Signs and Systems

Robert Venturi exploded onto the architectural scene in 1966 with a radical call to arms in "Complexity and Contradiction". Further accolades and outrage ensued in 1972 when Venturi and Denise Scott Brown (along with Steven Izenour) analyzed the Las Vegas strip as an archetype in "Learning from Las Vegas". Now, for the first time, these two observer-designer-theorists turn their iconoclastic vision onto their own remarkable partnership and the rule-breaking architecture it has informed. The views of Venturi and Scott Brown have influenced architects worldwide for nearly half a century. Pluralism and multiculturalism; symbolism and iconography; popular culture and the everyday landscape; generic building and electronic communication are among the many ideas they have championed. Here, they present both a fascinating retrospective of their life work and a definitive statement of its theoretical underpinnings. Accessible, informative, and beautifully illustrated, "Architecture as Signs and Systems" is a must for students of architecture and urban planning, as well as anyone intrigued by these seminal cultural figures. Venturi and Scott Brown have devoted their professional lives to broadening our view of the built world and enlarging the purview of practitioners within it. By looking backward over their own life work, they discover signs and systems that point forward, toward a humane Mannerist architecture for a complex, multicultural society.

From Desert to Touristic Metropolitan

Las Vegas is such an extraordinary destination. Research has shown that the city of Las Vegas was developed mainly with thanks to the mafia. Las Vegas has had an extraordinary way of developing. The city did not develop, for example by the means of the Destination Life Cycle from Butler, 1980 nor did it develop by the means of the broad context model by Weaver, 2000. And also the government had nothing to do with Las Vegas' tourism development. Organized crime was the factor that developed Las Vegas. It was not until New York City mafia boss Meyer Lansky sent well-known gangster Bugsy Siegel to Las Vegas that Las Vegas became a popular destination. With Siegel's imagination and organizational skills and the Mafia's money, the first gambling palace, The Flamingo, was the first of many gangster- financed gambling hotels in Las Vegas. The mafia were also the ones to introduce entertainment into the city with icons like The Rat Pack, Elvis, Liberace and Wayne Newton. The mafia turned the Las Vegas Boulevard into the glitzy and glamorous Las Vegas Strip.

Flowers in the Desert: Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas 1993-2012

"Flowers in the Desert": Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas 1993-2012 explores the intersection of contemporary Las Vegas entertainment and Cirque du Soleil’s style of “new American Circus.” Cirque du Soleil has changed the expectations of spectacle theatre on the Las Vegas strip by constantly striving to provide an experience for all audience members that is entertaining and awe inspiring regardless of their background and native language. Through wordless, exemplary production standards, Cirque du Soleil has raised the bar for performance art in the Las Vegas desert. This text is an examination of the phenomenon of the entertainment company, Cirque du Soleil, from its inception as a small band of street performers to the entertainment machine it is today with the primary focus upon the years 1993 – 2012, the time which encompasses Cirque’s arrival in “sin city” through today. Cirque’s opening in Las Vegas has changed the nature of Las Vegas spectacle entertainment and Las Vegas has changed Cirque’s performance standards. This symbiotic relationship between the entity and its locale, has changed the nature of highly technological productions forever.

The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture Новинка

The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture

In The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture, Pier Vittorio Aureli proposes that a sharpened formal consciousness in architecture is a precondition for political, cultural, and social engagement with the city. Aureli uses the term absolute not in the conventional sense of "pure," but to denote something that is resolutely itself after being separated from its other. In the pursuit of the possibility of an absolute architecture, the other is the space of the city, its extensive organization, and its government. Politics is agonism through separation and confrontation; the very condition of architectural form is to separate and be separated. Through its act of separation and being separated, architecture reveals at once the essence of the city and the essence of itself as political form: the city as the composition of (separate) parts. Aureli revisits the work of four architects whose projects were advanced through the making of architectural form but whose concern was the city at large: Andrea Palladio, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Etienne Louis-Boullee, and Oswald Mathias Ungers. The work of these architects, Aureli argues, addressed the transformations of the modern city and its urban implications through the elaboration of specific and strategic architectural forms. Their projects for the city do not take the form of an overall plan but are expressed as an "archipelago" of site-specific interventions.

Each entry first defines the common meaning of the term, then goes on to discuss in detail its generative possibilities. Scenarios involving the use of a design principle, or the way it might be experienced, further aid students in developing strategies for their own design. In addition, Language of Space and Form: Divides entries into five categories for quick access to concepts, including process and generation, organization and ordering, operation and experience, objects and assemblies, and representation and communication Addresses studio practice from the ground up, encouraging readers to develop creativity and critical thinking as they develop a design process Offers supplemental online learning resources, including exercises that correspond to the book A must-have reference for professionals and students in architecture and interior design, Language of Space and Form is destined to become a classic introduction to design thinking.

Analysis of Reinforcement Learning Algorithms for Swarm Learning

Reinforcement learning has received much attention in the past decades. The three forms of reinforcement learning algorithms are Actor Critic learning, Q learning and Reinforcement Comparison. Q-learning is a form of model-free reinforcement learning with one drawback that is the overestimation (Rising Q) problem. To solve this problem Rough Sets approach is used. This has lead to the modification of the traditional Q learning algorithms to a new form of Q learning namely, Rough Q learning. Actor Critic Learning have a separate memory structure to explicitly represent the policy independent of the value function. Another form of reinforcement learning is Reinforcement Comparison. Using reinforcement comparison method (RC), a reference reward is equated with an average of previously received rewards. The Actor Critic and RC method is also made better by using the rough set approach. The results of the study are in form of various plots for all three forms of reinforcement learning, their variations and the effect of temperature on them.
Limits of Representation Limits of Representation Новинка

Limits of Representation

This study aims to analyze the limits of representation of architectural photographic images in periodicals within architectural media that shape today's architectural production. This aim is accomplished in three sections; "examining the power of image in architecture"; "examining architectural media" and "examining the periodicals' attitudes towards using architectural photography". A case study is done to uncover the relationship between the photograph and the medium that it takes place on and determine the continuities and discontinuities between the architecture and visual language that is used to 'represent' it. Zaha Hadid is selected as she is one of the leading figures in contemporary architectural culture and her projects are widely published in media. The exemplary periodicals from different cultural domains are selected according to their positions in architectural media. Selected examples are thought to be the representative for each domain. The contextual properties of each domain are outlined and compared through a set of variables which appear to form the ground for the identification of the limits of architectural media within contemporary architectural production.

Evan Chakroff, Addison Godel and Jacqueline Gargus China: Architectural Guide

In an era of accelerating population growth, mass urbanisation, and increasing pressure on the natural environment, the mega­cities of China's eastern seaboard have become a focal point of architectural and urban­design attention. The reform and opening- up era has touched China's major cities in different ways, variously affecting the existing fabric of dynastic capitals, trade hubs, and former European colonies and concessions; this in turn has provided the setting for a range of complex reactions by contemporary architects. The Architectural Guide China provides an invaluable window into this work, with city­by­city coverage including historic maps and background informa tion on urban form. Building on the authors' years of expe rience leading architectural study tours, this book is the first comprehensive English­language survey of architecture in China presented in the form of a travel guidebook.
Parametric Form Finding in Contemporary Architecture Parametric Form Finding in Contemporary Architecture Новинка

Parametric Form Finding in Contemporary Architecture

The continuous search for innovative architectural form that follows the corresponding function of a building is being limited by certain rules. As the napkin sketch is being transformed into a building, there are several considerations that take place, that lead sometimes to the degeneration of the basic design idea. The architectural creation has its roots to human experiences, buildings are actually designed like this because they "should" look like this. Human perception is not based on certain forms, but parallelizes form to certain function, as it is used to work like this. Design freedom is based on the denial of such limits. This book focuses on parametric form creation based on specific two-dimensional shapes and is an example of how complexity can occur out of the simplicity of a shape. After all Form Follows Function...or is it Function Follows Form?

Trunk Music

From the opening bars, when the body of Tony Aliso is pulled from the trunk of his Rolls Royce Silver Cloud on Mulholland Drive, to the final grace note on a Hawaiian beach, Connelly has crafted a jazzy, funky, roller coaster of a book. The return of maverick L.A. homicide detective Hieronymous (Harry) Bosch (from 1995's The Last Coyote) is cause for rejoicing. The Aliso murder quickly embroils Bosch and his new team (Kizmin Rider, a young black female officer on the rise in the department; veteran Jerry Edgar; and their boss, Lieutenant Grace Billets) in a Byzantine tangle of Las Vegas mob money, Hollywood filmmaking and police politics. The plot rushes headlong into deadends and deadfalls, repeatedly reorients and tears off in a new direction. Never known for tact, the single-minded Bosch is soon hotfooting through an acronymic snakepit: the LAPD's OCID (Organized Crime Investigation Division); the IAD (Internal Affairs Division); the LVPD's OCU (Las Vegas Police Department's Organized Crime Unit); the FBI. Not only does each organization claim a piece of the action, but each also wants a piece of Bosch. Connelly has it all working together here: skillful dialogue, solid plotting, nuances of race and status and a pace that will leave readers gasping to keep up.

Domestic Architectural Styles of Osogbo, Nigeria

The study examined the domestic buildings in Osogbo, Nigeria in order to identify their architectural characteristics and group them into appropriate styles. The qualitative and historical research methods were used. The qualitative method involved observations, documentation and interviews which yielded data about the selected buildings. The historical method also involved interviews which provided oral historical data about the buildings, their owners and the building processes. More historical data were provided by artisans selected from the Osogbo building industry, on the development of the industry and different styles of domestic buildings. The analyses were based on the plan forms, roof forms and the composition of the facades. Each style was defined by a unique and distinct combination of these elements. The study identified nine architectural styles and concluded that the architectural elements of the plan form, roof form and facade defined the styles of the domestic architecture of Osogbo and distributed them into historically unique styles.
