Inner Architecture The City architecture Building bridges through Inner architecture An other dimension to architecture. Naturally, the intention and the of that spirit back to their home countries. http://www.auroville.org/thecity/architecture/inner_architecture.htm
Extractions: 'Inner Architecture' - September 2002 A personal reporting by Peter Anderschitz on the International Forum of Young Architects (IFYA) with focus on Auroville's International Zone. This annual international design forum took place in Auroville under the label of 'Inner Architecture' from Sept. 15th until 29th 2002. Why they all came together - with a lot of effort from both the participants and the organisers - and for a rather unknown adventure? Those young professional architects from far away: from Vietnam, Germany, USA; as well as those young architecture students from India and Europe who by joining unexpectedly added even more spice to the learning exercise..? They came to learn from each other and from this richly inspiring environment called Auroville, which is a City with a Vision, yes, but also a place and a people just beginning to learn how to become citizens - of a new world.. They came to learn, and it turned out that everybody, participants and organisers, became student during these two weeks. Naturally, the intention and the topic of the forum 'Inner Architecture', was the signal and call to look for another dimension to architecture, and urban and environmental design, with another intention, another way of action. Focusing the work on Auroville's International Zone, which only recently got another push by the

International Information Architecture architecture community as a whole. Our competitive advantage derives from our very ability to build bridges and of those in other countries. http://www.semanticstudios.com/publications/semantics/000012.php
Extractions: email@example.com Home Consulting Presentations ... Semantics July 14, 2003 Comments (13) Subscribe Connecting people from diverse disciplines, countries and cultures is a strategic imperative, not only for AIfIA but for the information architecture community as a whole. Our competitive advantage derives from our very ability to build bridges and span networks. This argument alone should provide ample incentive for us to nurture an international perspective within the practice, but there are all sorts of idiosyncratic reasons why information architects should reach across borders. George Lakoff's book about categorization is required reading for any serious information architect. Consider this excerpt: The title of this book was inspired by the Australian aboriginal language Dyirbal, which has a category, balan , that actually includes women, fire, and dangerous things. It also includes birds that are not dangerous, as well as exceptional animals, such as the platypus, bandicoot, and echidna. The ways we categorize are rooted in language and culture. This creates unique challenges for information architects. For example, a web site targeted for a Japanese audience may require a completely different structure and organization than its German equivalent. Localization isn't limited to translation.

Extractions: Foreword Bridging rivers, gorges, narrows, straits, and valleys always has played an important role in the history of human settlement. Since ancient times, bridges have been the most visible testimony of the noble craft of engineers. A bridge can be defined in many ways, but Andrea Palladio, the great 16th century Italian architect and engineer, hit on the essence of bridge building when he said "...bridges should befit the spirit of the community by exhibiting commodiousness, firmness, and delight." In more practical terms, he went on to explain that the way to avoid having the bridge carried away by the violence of water was to make the bridge without fixing any posts in the water. Since the beginning of time, the goal of bridge builders has been to create as wide a span as possible which is commodious, firm, and occasionally delightful. Spanning greater distances is a distinct measure of engineering prowess. In terms of engineering, bridges are discussed by

As the Roman Empire slowly disintegrated and faded away, some of its ideas remained in use, and some did not. The peculiar system of numbers, using the symbols I V X C D and M, sometimes in a very strange ordering, is now mainly used in clocks, and when writing dates in special circumstances. But the Roman influence on language is still very strong in Europe and other areas where European based languages are spoken, and will probably continue to persist for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, even though it was, and is, intangible. Such is the power of ideas, and the need for continuity of communication. Attempts to disrupt this continuity have seldom succeeded. An example was the introduction of new names for the months during the French revolution. France, like many other countries, still uses names with Norse and Roman origins in the distant past. Roman buildings were more obviously durable than words, though in fact more subject to decay: many remain to this day. Even now you can travel on roads that follow Roman alignments, apart from occasional bypasses. You can see great Roman buildings and mighty bridges, along with artistic creations such as statues and mosaics. Wherever the Romans went, they took their building methods with them.

Extractions: North Korea North Korea Arguably the most distinct and impressive form of contemporary cultural expression in North Korea is architecture and city planning. P'yongyang, almost completely destroyed during the Korean War, has been rebuilt on a grand scale. Many new buildings have been constructed during the 1980s and 1990s in order to enhance P'yongyang's status as a capital. Major structures are divided architecturally into three categories: monuments, buildings that combine traditional Korean architectural motifs and modern construction, and high-rise buildings of a totally modern design. Examples of the first include the Ch'llima Statue (see Glossary); a twenty-meter high bronze statue of Kim Il Sung in front of the Museum of the Korean Revolution (itself, at 240,000 square meters, one of the largest structures in the world); the Arch of Triumph (similar to its Parisian counterpart, although a full ten meters higher); and the Tower of the Chuch'e Idea, 170 meters high, built on the occasion of Kim's seventieth birthday in 1982. According to a North Korean publication, the tower is covered with 25,550 pieces of granite, each representing a day in the life of the "great leader." The second architectural category makes special use of traditional tiled roof designs and includes the People's Culture Palace and the People's Great Study Hall, both in P'yongyang, and the International Friendship Exhibition Hall at Myohyang-san. The latter building displays gifts given to Kim Il Sung by foreign dignitaries. In light of Korea's tributary relationship to China during the Chosn Dynasty, it is significant that the section of the hall devoted to gifts from China is the largest.

Extractions: Faculty taking part in the discussion were asked to identify pressing issues that could be addressed by marshaling the intellectual and creative resources of the school. Prominent among the concerns they raised were the increasing disparity between rich and poor, continued degradation of the environment, and the growing homogenization of the world. The places where we live, work, and conduct business are becoming more and more alike and more and more unlikable. People are put off by their environment and feel powerless to change it, the Envision participants observed. The rise of heritage tourism is a sign that we are desperate to find places of enduring value. Other specific issues that surfaced in the Envision discussion include the following: Sprawl and its effect on our quality of life The need to preserve and steward historic and cultural resources Imbalance in modes of transportation (i.e., over-dependence on automobiles) and its effect on the environment

Extractions: PersianIran.com The province of Esfahan (also spelled Isfahan) lies on the Zayandeh River, almost in the heart of Iran. This city, once the capital of Iran, is now only the administrative headquarters of the province. It lies about halfway between Tehran and Shiraz , at about 400km south of Tehran. Esfahan has been designated as a world heritage by UNESCO. It has some of the oldest architecture in the world that dates back to the 10th century. The cool blue tiles of Esfahan's Islamic buildings, and the city's majestic bridges, contrast perfectly with the hot, dry countryside around it. Esfahan is a sight you won't forget. Not only is the architecture superb and the climate pleasant, but there's a fairly relaxed atmosphere here. It's a city for walking, getting lost in the bazaar, dozing in beautiful gardens and meeting people. The famous half-rhyme Esfahan nesf-é jahan (Esfahan is half the world) was coined by the French poet Renier in the 16th century. He believed that half the beauties of all the world is to be found in Esfahan, so overwhelmed was he by his experiences of the city. There's so much to see in Esfahan that the visitor will have to ration his time and concentrate on must-sees such as the Shah Square, one of the largest town squares in the world. Taking tea in one of the teahouses under the bridges is also an essential part of the Esfahan experience. Of all the cities in Iran, Esfahan is perhaps the richest in historical and architectural wealth. In 640 AD it was conquered by the Muslims. During the Islamic era, it has endured battles and dreadful setbacks and it has seen prosperous times.

Extractions: Research in the field of neuroscience has exploded in the last 10 years. As an example, the membership of the Society of Neuroscience has increased from 7,000 members to 33,000 members since 1994. The knowledge base being generated by researchers in this field is enormous, but relatively unknown by those working in the design and construction industries. Architects have recently taken steps to build intellectual bridges between their field and the neuroscience research community. Three events occurred at the AIA convention in San Diego this past May to address the building of such bridges: Dr. Fred Gage, from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, gave a keynote address on architecture and neuroscience. The San Diego Chapter of the AIA announced the formation of the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture. The College of Fellows of the AIA awarded the Latrobe Fellowship of $100,000 to the academy.
