Art of memory The art of memory (Latin: ars memoriae) is any of a number of loosely associated mnemonic principles and techniques used to organize memory impressions, improve recall, and assist in the combination and 'invention' of ideas. An alternative and frequently used term is "Ars Memorativa" which is also often translated as "art of memory" although its more literal meaning is "Memorative Art". It is sometimes referred to as mnemotechnics. It is an 'art' in the Aristotelian sense, which is to say a method or set of prescriptions that adds order and discipline to the pragmatic, natural activities of human beings. It has existed as a recognized group of principles and techniques since at least as early as the middle of the first millennium BCE, and was usually associated with training in rhetoric or logic, but variants of the art were employed in other contexts, particularly the religious and the magical.

All partners have offered their teaching resources at European Urban Summer School. This concept didn't involve economic profit. The first EUSS took place in Poland (2010), the second in Portugal (2011). Globalisation, climate change, resource depletion and financial crises are the prevailing – and often crippling – conditions, which shape our immediate professional and academic lives and longer-term futures. The host: University of Westminster The topic: Times of Scarcity – Reclaiming the Possibility of Making Format
Profiles of Selected Architects | world-architects.com China has an unbelievable 14,500 kilometers of coastline, not including the islands. From the north to the south, three different seas follow each other: The Yellow Sea with the Gulf of Bohai, the East China Sea and the South China Sea. Only the island of Hainan east of Vietnam is known in the West for beach holidays. Slowly – with the development of leisure activities – China's beaches are becoming a resource for development. The key feature of the park is a fifty-year-old black pine forest and the architects had been challenged to minimize the construction impact on the environment. Pedestrian bridge Directly at the edge of the forest, with an open view to the sea, the Lanqiao Clubhouse is fully integrated into the form of the landscape with an organic design. Clubhouse Three organic pavilions contain public showers and restrooms. South bathroom At the north end of the beach, a group of public showers, restrooms and convenient stores follow in a linear way along the forest line.
Spacelab — Home MODELOS MENTAIS Marco Antonio Moreira Instituto de Física Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul Porto Alegre, RS, Brasil The mind must be more complicated than any theory of it: however complex the theory, a device that invented it must be still more complex. Resumo Aborda-se o tema modelos mentais particularmente à luz da teoria de Johnson-Laird. Abstract The mental models subject is presented particularly in the light of Johnson-Laird’s theory. Objetivo Este trabalho pretende enfocar, com bastante detalhe, o tema “modelos mentais”, principalmente segundo a ótica de Philip Johnson-Laird (1983), a fim de subsidiar o ensino e a pesquisa em ensino de ciências à luz desse referencial. Introdução Representações internas, ou representações mentais, são maneiras de “re-presentar” internamente o mundo externo. Em princípio, pode-se distinguir entre representações mentais analógicas e proposicionais. A questão imagens/proposições é polêmica na Psicologia Cognitiva. Modelos mentais, proposições e imagens etapa 1: 2.
Nan Madol The name Nan Madol means "spaces between" and is a reference to the canals that crisscross the ruins. The original name was Soun Nan-leng (Reef of Heaven), according to Gene Ashby in his book Pohnpei, An Island Argosy. It is often called the "Venice of the Pacific" History Central Nan Madol Nan Madol Nan Madol was the ceremonial and political seat of the Saudeleur dynasty, which united Pohnpei's estimated 25,000 people until about 1628. Set apart between the main island of Pohnpei and Temwen Island, it was a scene of human activity as early as the first or second century CE. Little can be verified about the megalithic construction. According to Pohnpeian legend, Nan Madol was constructed by twin sorcerers Olisihpa and Olosohpa from the mythical Western Katau, or Kanamwayso. Purpose and features The elite centre was a special place of residence for the nobility and of mortuary activities presided over by priests. Food and water Archaeology and tourism
Decoding Spaces Components for Grasshopper (Rhino) | decodingspaces Decoding Spaces Components is a set of spatial analysis components for Grasshopper (a parametric modeling plugin for Rhino 3D). It provides a graph-analysis for segment maps and different visibility analysis methods (Isovists, Isovist Fields and Visibility Graphs). Team: Martin Bielik, Sven Schneider, Reinhard Königin cooperation with the chair Computer Science in Architecture (Prof. Dr. Donath). Segment Analysis: The Graph-Components allow to generate graphs from line-drawings and analyse these graphs according to familiar graph-measures. Isovist Analysis: The Isovist component allows to generate isovists-polygons from given vantage points. Isovist Fields (GPU-accelerated): The IsovistField-Component calculates Isovist-Measures (Area, Perimeter, Compactness, Occlusivity, MinRadial, MaxRadial) for a given set of points. Visibility Graph Analysis: The Visibility Graph Component generates a bidirectional graph based on a set of points and obstacle lines. Compatibility: Download: Publications:
Urbana E&D La casa mínima La casa mínima en comparación a los edificios adyacentes. Tiene una fachada exterior lisa, con una pequeña entrada y una puerta pintada de verde atravesada por una cerradura de hierro. En la planta superior asoma un balconcito con barrotes verticales de hierro, desde donde se esconde una ventana de dos hojas simétricas y dos cortinas iguales pliegue a pliegue. Por sobre la cornisa aparecen algunas plantas que dejan ver a los cimientos a través de los viejos y descascarados materiales. Diego M. Zigotto lo plantea de la siguiente manera: "La historia, recogida por más de una guía turística y páginas de internet dice que fue construida en 1813, cuando la Asamblea Constituyente dictó la libertad de vientres. En los años 1960, la propiedad fue comprada por un anticuario, quien aparentemente fue el propagador de la leyenda del esclavo liberto. Referencias[editar] Enlaces externos[editar]

Fundamentals of Computer-Aided Engineering - Benny Raphael, Ian F. C. Smith It is vital that today’s engineers work with computer-based tools and techniques. However, programming courses do not provide engineering students with the skills that are necessary to succeed in their professional career. Here, the authors propose a novel, practical approach that encompasses knowledge assimilation, decision-making capabilities and technical agility, together with concepts in computer-aided engineering that are independent of hardware and software technologies. This book: Fundamentals of Computer Aided Engineering provides support for all students involved in computer-aided engineering courses in civil, mechanical, chemical and environmental engineering.
RTPI London Calling | The RTPI London + London Young Planners Blog Evolutionary Form Finding with Grasshopper + Galapagos | Responsive Skins Evolutionary problem solving mimics the theory of evolution employing the same trial-and-error methods that nature uses in order to arrive at an optimized result. When automated for specific parameters and results, this technique becomes an effective way to computationally drive controlled results within the iterative design process – allowing designers to produce optimized parameters resulting in a form, graphic or piece of data that best meets design criteria. In this post we walk you through the process of using Galapagos, an evolutionary solver for Rhino/ Grasshopper, and show an example of how this method can be tied in with analysis tools to optimize form based on energy data. David Rutten, a developer with McNeel & Associates, created a tool called Galapagos which facilitates this process within grasshopper(graphical algorithm editor). Like this: Like Loading...
