Architecture, Ethics, and Technology by Institut de recherche en histoire de l'architecture Pdf
Focuses on neglected ethical issues of architecture, in 14 French and English papers from a symposium in Montreal in 1991. They call for the revision of assumptions about the nature of architectural history, theory, representation, and ideation; the production of buildings in the postindustrial city; and professional ethics.

L'influence des sciences naturelles et de la pensée évolutionniste sur les oeuvres de Viollet-le-Duc, Labrouste ou Vaudoyer, et la reconsidération de l'historicisme comme pensée scientifique au XIXe siècle.
La réception de l'architecture du mouvement moderne by Jean-Yves Andrieux,Fabienne Chevallier Pdf
"Les démarches radicales s'inscrivent souvent dans un espace transcendant. C'est ce qui est arrivé à la modernité architecturale, bien connue pour ses héros, ses icônes, ses manifestes et ses intentions sociales généreuses. Mais comment l'architecture, art de l'utilitas, aurait-elle pu se délier des contraintes du XXe siècle? Elle est bien la fille des mythes, des contradictions, des aspirations et plus encore, des rapports de force en transformation du siècle passé"--
Pourquoi est-il si difficile de parler d'architecture ? by Pierre Cloquette,Renaud Pleitinx,Jean Stillemans Pdf
Certaines questions sont ainsi faites qu'y répondre, même de manière négative ou détournée, revient nécessairement à éprouver ce qu’elles interrogent et à prouver en acte leur pertinence. La question « Pourquoi est-il si difficile de parler d’architecture? » est de cette sorte. Interrogeant les raisons qui rendent difficile le fait de parler d’architecture, elle oblige en définitive à parler de celle-ci et à courir le risque d’échouer sur les écueils annoncés. Sous ses dehors inoffensifs, il s’agit en fait d’une « question piège ». Piège posé en terrain glissant qui plus est, car elle rend problématique toute parole constituant l’architecture comme un objet de savoir. Et ce faisant, elle amène inexorablement qui veut y répondre à mettre en cause, sur un mode proprement épistémologique, les fondements de la discipline nommée Théorie de l’architecture. Souhaitant aborder une question de fond tout en jetant un regard critique sur ses propres travaux et les résultats de la discipline à laquelle il contribue, le LAA s’est saisi de cette question faussement badine, véritablement épineuse et quelque peu insidieuse, pour en faire le prétexte d’un colloque qui s’est tenu les 3, 4, 5 décembre 2013, au Centre international pour la ville, l’architecture et le paysage (CIVA). Quinze intervenants de diverses origines disciplinaires s’y sont succédé dont le présent ouvrage rassemble les communications. Ces dernières permettent d’apprécier la multiplicité des approches, les divergences de vues, mais aussi les difficultés de la question et le bonheur de quelques réponses audacieuses.
Entre Mécanique et Architecture / Between Mechanics and Architecture by Patricia Radelet-de Grave,Edoardo Benvenuto Pdf
This book is a collective work and its richness lies in the diversity of the perspectives, all historical, focussed on the science of building. Its aim is to counter-balance the picture of architecture provided by art historians who, in general, study the evolution of buildings. In this book, the authors look into what is related to the actual act of building, to the means of assuring building stability. While historians of art are principally concerned with the esthetics of a monument, here the accent is put on the development of the physico- mathematical theories of mechanics to which engineers and constructors have turned, and to the laws of mechanics, of elasticity and of the strength of materials to which they are bound. The study of perspective and projective geometry also enters the work by way of the representations and plans of the buildings to be constructed. The art of building has always been at the center of human endeavors, and the will to see this art advance has had repercussions in all related fields. Today, these complex interrelations provide the groundwork for research of the restoration of historical monuments.
Dictionnaire d'architecture, civile, militaire et navale, antique, ancienne et moderne, et de tous les arts et métiers qui en dépendent; Dont tous les termes sont exprimés en français, latin, italien, espagnol, anglais et allemand ... by Charles François Roland le Virloys Pdf
Forty years on from the first moon landing, architecture in Space is entering a new era. Over the last decade, there has been a fundamental shift in the Space industry from short-term pioneering expeditions to long-term planning for colonisation, and new ventures such as Space tourism. Architects are now involved in designing the interiors of long-term habitable structures in Space, such as the International Space Station, researching advanced robotic fabrication technologies for building structures on the Moon and Mars, envisioning new 'space yachts' for the super-rich, and building new facilities, such as the Virgin Galactic 'Spaceport America' in New Mexico designed by Foster + Partners. Meanwhile the mystique of Space remains as alluring as ever, as high-profile designers and educators – such as Greg Lynn – are running designs studios drawing upon ever more inventive computational design techniques. This issue of AD features the most significant current projects underway and highlights key areas of research in Space, such as energy, materials, manufacture and robotics. It also looks at how this research and investment in new technologies might transfer to terrestrial design and construction. Space architects: Constance Adams, Marc Cohen, Ondrej Doule, Sandra Häuplik-Meusburger, Scott Howe, Brent Sherwood, Madhu Thangavelu, Andreas Vogler, Robert Zubrin. Architects: Bevk Perovic Arhitekti, Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti, Foster + Partners, Neil Leach, Greg Lynn, OFIS architects, SADAR + VUGA.
Computer Systems Architecture provides IT professionals and students with the necessary understanding of computer hardware. It addresses the ongoing issues related to computer hardware and discusses the solutions supplied by the industry. The book describes trends in computing solutions that led to the current available infrastructures, tracing the initial need for computers to recent concepts such as the Internet of Things. It covers computers’ data representation, explains how computer architecture and its underlying meaning changed over the years, and examines the implementations and performance enhancements of the central processing unit (CPU). It then discusses the organization, hierarchy, and performance considerations of computer memory as applied by the operating system and illustrates how cache memory significantly improves performance. The author proceeds to explore the bus system, algorithms for ensuring data integrity, input and output (I/O) components, methods for performing I/O, various aspects relevant to software engineering, and nonvolatile storage devices, such as hard drives and technologies for enhancing performance and reliability. He also describes virtualization and cloud computing and the emergence of software-based systems’ architectures. Accessible to software engineers and developers as well as students in IT disciplines, this book enhances readers’ understanding of the hardware infrastructure used in software engineering projects. It enables readers to better optimize system usage by focusing on the principles used in hardware systems design and the methods for enhancing performance.
Fundamentals of Software Architecture by Mark Richards,Neal Ford Pdf
Salary surveys worldwide regularly place software architect in the top 10 best jobs, yet no real guide exists to help developers become architects. Until now. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of software architecture’s many aspects. Aspiring and existing architects alike will examine architectural characteristics, architectural patterns, component determination, diagramming and presenting architecture, evolutionary architecture, and many other topics. Mark Richards and Neal Ford—hands-on practitioners who have taught software architecture classes professionally for years—focus on architecture principles that apply across all technology stacks. You’ll explore software architecture in a modern light, taking into account all the innovations of the past decade. This book examines: Architecture patterns: The technical basis for many architectural decisions Components: Identification, coupling, cohesion, partitioning, and granularity Soft skills: Effective team management, meetings, negotiation, presentations, and more Modernity: Engineering practices and operational approaches that have changed radically in the past few years Architecture as an engineering discipline: Repeatable results, metrics, and concrete valuations that add rigor to software architecture
Not only does almost everyone in the civilized world use a personal computer, smartphone, and/or tablet on a daily basis to communicate with others and access information, but virtually every other modern appliance, vehicle, or other device has one or more computers embedded inside it. One cannot purchase a current-model automobile, for example, without several computers on board to do everything from monitoring exhaust emissions, to operating the anti-lock brakes, to telling the transmission when to shift, and so on. Appliances such as clothes washers and dryers, microwave ovens, refrigerators, etc. are almost all digitally controlled. Gaming consoles like Xbox, PlayStation, and Wii are powerful computer systems with enhanced capabilities for user interaction. Computers are everywhere, even when we don’t see them as such, and it is more important than ever for students who will soon enter the workforce to understand how they work. This book is completely updated and revised for a one-semester upper level undergraduate course in Computer Architecture, and suitable for use in an undergraduate CS, EE, or CE curriculum at the junior or senior level. Students should have had a course(s) covering introductory topics in digital logic and computer organization. While this is not a text for a programming course, the reader should be familiar with computer programming concepts in at least one language such as C, C++, or Java. Previous courses in operating systems, assembly language, and/or systems programming would be helpful, but are not essential.
