Cunningham & Cunningham, Inc. Le centre hospitalier, lieu d'expérimentation des déplacements Parce qu'il cumule les spécificités et les difficultés, le centre hospitalier se révèle comme un lieu très intéressant en matière d'études et d'actions concernant la mobilité des biens et des personnes : publics variés, avec des motivations de déplacement très différentes,horaires à la fois très variables et peu souples (les employés n'ont pas tous de plages d'horaires), avec des périodes de fortes fréquentations souvent découplées des transports en commun classiques,flux de marchandises très spécifiques, Dans un contexte où le recrutement du personnel soignant se révèle de plus en plus difficile, où la multi-activité des professionnels de santé (alternant des actes médicaux en secteur libéral et des vacations dans le secteur public, par exemple) et la pratique des temps partiels (liée certainement à la féminisation de la profession) se développent, l’accessibilité à l’hôpital devient aussi un enjeu prédominant pour faire face aux évolutions de l’emploi du personnel hospitalier.

DARCH - SUAT - News Insitut of Urban Design The aim of the Institute of Urban Design is to develop and impart knowledge of new principles and methods of urban design. It is organized in three professorships, each with its own research emphasis. Chair of Architecture and Urban Design - Prof. The emphasis Design Strategies and Instruments in Urban Space concentrates on the observation of urban phenomena and the development of methods and tools at the interface between architecture and urban design. Chair of the History of Urban Design - Prof. The research emphasis Systematics of Urban Design focuses on developing urban strategies for the 21st century based on the aesthetic and functional qualities of existing or planned urban forms, which are able to serve as guidelines for urban developments. Chair of Architecture and Design - Prof. The third research emphasis Edgecity Morphology focuses on contemporary urban territories and their potential sustainable development.

Six projets pour protéger New York de la montée des eaux LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Stéphane Lauer (New York, correspondant) Deux ans après le passage de Sandy, les Etats-Unis vont consacrer près d'un milliard de dollars (738 millions d'euros) au réaménagement des rives de New York, de Long Island et du New Jersey, dévastées par le super ouragan en octobre 2012. Le secrétaire au logement et au développement urbain, Shaun Donovan, et le maire de New York, Bill de Blasio, ont annoncé, lundi 2 juin, les noms des lauréats d'un concours de design, Rebuild by Design, qui se partageront la dotation. Lancé en novembre 2013, il s'agit du plus grand concours jamais organisé aux Etats-Unis. Il fait partie des 60 milliards de dollars débloqués par le gouvernement américain après l'ouragan.

A Pattern Language A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction is a 1977 book on architecture, urban design, and community livability. It was authored by Christopher Alexander, Sara Ishikawa and Murray Silverstein of the Center for Environmental Structure of Berkeley, California, with writing credits also to Max Jacobson, Ingrid Fiksdahl-King and Shlomo Angel. Decades after its publication, it is still one of the best-selling books on architecture.[1] The book creates a new language, what the authors call a pattern language derived from timeless entities called patterns. It includes 253 patterns such as Community of 7000 (Pattern 12) given a treatment over several pages; page 71 states: "Individuals have no effective voice in any community of more than 5,000-10,000 persons." Written in the 1970s at the University of California, Berkeley, A Pattern Language was influenced by the then-emerging language to describe computer programming and design.

Multi-Agent Transport Simulation | MATSim TEK Cube Building in Taiwan/ BIG Architects TEK is a public building in Taiwan that uses a form and highly mixed program to encourage a large cross section of users. Designed by BIG Architects, the 57 meter cubed building has an open section, or ‘street’ to allow full public access through the building. The access rises and dilates near the top of the building and opens onto a rooftop garden. The roof is to be a public park and informal performance area. Radiating from the street will be hotel, retail, office, restaurants, etc, with no particular formal arrangement. To commemorate the 9th Annual Skyscraper Competition, eVolo is publishing the Limited Edition Book "eVolo Skyscrapers 2" which is the follow-up to its highly acclaimed book “eVolo Skyscrapers”. -> EVOLO SKYSCRAPERS 2 - Limited Edition Book

Defining A City By Its Professional Skill Set with Data From LinkedIn By their very design and origins, cities have always been linked closely to opportunity. In addition to providing concentrated access to a more diverse set of cultural, culinary, and educational options, cities also attract and nurture clusters of workers with complementary and contrasting skills. For workers considering a move, the professional attributes of a city can matter just as much as the attributes of a particular company or opportunity. Some professionals considering their next career move may be interested in an area that has a rich ecosystem of talent in their specialty. Over 175 million LinkedIn members are located in the United States and Europe, and by mining the skills and location data in their profiles, we built two maps that highlight the skills which define almost every major city in each region. A few things stood out when looking at our map of the US. Follow the oil! As with the US map, we noted a few interesting trends in Europe. Interactive maps by Skye Riley

The Timeless Way of Building The Timeless Way of Building is a 1979 book by Christopher Alexander that proposes a new theory of architecture (and design in general) that relies on the understanding and configuration of design patterns. Although it came out later, it is essentially the introduction to A Pattern Language and The Oregon Experiment, providing the philosophical background to the Center for Environmental Structure series. It has had a huge influence on creative thinking, especially in the areas of architecture and software design.[1] In the book, Alexander introduces the concept of the "quality without a name", and argues that we should seek to include this nameless quality in our buildings. The book's format is somewhat unusual. The style used in The Timeless Way of Building is also unusual for an architectural text, at times resembling prose poetry or religious scripture. Other books in the same series are: References[edit] External links[edit]
