Women in Architecture

Much as we hate to say it, we are led to conclude that women often get a raw deal in their education in architecture school, and in their careers in architectural practice. You should also take a look at Part 2 of this article, in which we come to a very, very reluctant conclusion. Don't send us a nasty email about how we discourage women from entering architecture. We have no intention of doing so. We aren't saying don't study architecture, as others have wilfully misinterpreted us. Research about women in architecture In this article, we're only offering our own observations. First, visit the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation. Then take a look at the writings of Prof Sherry Ahrentzen, probably the world's leading theorist on the subject of women in architecture and in architecture school.

A recent update on the topic can be read at this page by Gill Matthewson. One theory why there are few great female architects. Architecture Critic, The New Yorker. We live in a time of information abundance, which far too many of us see as information overload.

A word about Big Ideas and Themes — The architecture of Big Think. Debate Series 2010 - Building Futures. In 2010, Building Futures will continue to host its popular series of public debates around provocative contemporary and futures oriented issues.

Debate Series 2010 - Building Futures

In 2009, the series saw collaborations with Urban Lab at UCL and the BFI and we will be forming new partners to bring in new participants. The series is a lively and informal way of reaching out to new and diverse audiences and a great opportunity to guage opinion and generate feedback on a range of issues that matter not just to architects, but to the wider public. Simply email us to reserve your place, turn up, enjoy refreshments, lend us your ears and your voices and at the end of the debate vote to back or oppose the house! We have a framework of four debates held at BDP (Spring, Summer, Auntumn and Winter), in addition to our partner debates. In the pipeline are debtes about sustainable development, and the changing political geography. Podcasts are available from each debate to download shortly afterwards. Forums.

Free AutoCAD Tutorials : Template Files in AutoCAD 2010

AutoCAD uses a template every time it starts up. If you do not designate your own template, AutoCAD will use a default one. A template is a drawing file that includes some of the following settings: Unit type and precision (DDRMODES) Drawing limits (LIMITS) Snap, Grid, and Ortho settings (Status Bar) Layer organization (LA) Title blocks (Tutorial) Dimension and text styles (DDIM, ST) Linetypes (LT) Common blocks (Tutorial) In most cases, you do not want to set these things every time you begin a drawing. Most CAD businesses use a company-wide template that is updated from time to time. Creating a Template To create a template drawing, you first have to set up any parameters that you feel you would need (see the list above) in a regular drawing. You will see this dialog box: You have to change the ‘Files of type' setting from a DWG file to a DWT (template) file. Manuel d'Utilisation Autocad 2010. Downloads. Azimuth and Altitude Calculator.
