This handbook is intended to give such an outline of the Architecture of the Ancient World, and of that of Christendom down to the period of the Crusades, as, without attempting to supply the minute information required by the professional student, may give a general idea of the works of the great building nations of Antiquity and the Early Christian times.
The post-Ajaxian Web 2.0 world of wikis, folksonomies, and mashups makes well-planned information architecture even more essential. How do you present large volumes of information to people who need to find what they're looking for quickly?

In this book, Alexander Parmington combines an examination of space, access
control, and sculptural themes and placement to propose how images and texts
controlled movement in ClassicMaya cities. Using Palenque as a case study, this
book analyzes speciﬁc building groups and corresponding sculptures to provide
insight into the hierarchical distribution and use of ritual and administrative
space in temple and palace architecture. Identifying which spaces were the most
accessible and thereforemore public and which spaces weremore segregated and
consequently more private, Dr.
With globalisation and knowledge-based production, firms may cooperate on a global scale, outsource
parts of their administrative or productive units and negate location altogether. The extremely low transaction
costs of data, information and knowledge seem to invalidate the theory of agglomeration and the spatial clustering
of firms, going back to the classical work by Alfred Weber (1868-1958) and Alfred Marshall (1842-1924), who
emphasized the microeconomic benefits of industrial collocation.

For anyone who might still doubt the existence
of an overall European culture and its
coexistence in permanent dialogue with
national cultures, the history of restoration, as
presented by architect Jukka Jokilehto, should
be a convincing demonstration.
The modern concept of restoration, fruit of
a long historical process, was shaped in the
eighteenth century with the development of
Western historical thought and as a result of
tension between the rationalism of the
Enlightenment and pre-Romantic and Romantic
MOST of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred; one or two were experiences of my own, the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individual — he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew, and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture. The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves in the West at the period of this story — that is to say, thirty or forty years ago. Although my book...

In recent years many countries have made drastic changes to the architecture of financial
supervision, and more countries are contemplating modifications. The current restructuring
wave is making the supervisory landscape less uniform than in the past. In several countries the
architecture still reflects the classic model, with separate agencies for banking, securities and
Interested in developing embedded systems? Since they don't tolerate inefficiency, these systems require a disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read guide helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns and new patterns unique to embedded programming. Learn how to build system architecture for processors, not operating systems, and discover specific techniques for dealing with hardware difficulties and manufacturing requirements.
SOA Patterns provides architectural guidance through patterns and antipatterns. It shows you how to build real SOA services that feature flexibility, availability, and scalability. Through an extensive set of patterns, this book identifies the major SOA pressure points and provides reusable techniques to address them. Each pattern pairs the classic problem/solution format with a unique technology map, showing where specific solutions fit into the general pattern.
Databases are encapsulated by business logic. Before the advent
of stored-procedures, all the business logic ran in the transaction
processing monitor which was the middle tier of the classic three-
tier presentation-application-data architecture. With stored pro-
cedures, the TP-monitors were disintermediated by two-tiered
client/server architectures. The emergence of web-servers and
HTTP brought three-tier architectures back to center stage – in
The United States Capitol Building is filled with
symbols and architectural details that reference
ancient Greek and Roman art and architecture.
Italian artist Constantino Brumidi (1805–1880)
created a series of murals, based on his study
of Pompeian frescoes, for the Naval Affairs
Committee Room (now the Senate Appropriations
Conference Room) in the Capitol. For information,

As with Janus, the classical god of doorways whose
two faces look both forward and backward, so this arch
combines references to both beginnings and ends. The
concertina-folded and tooth-edged working around
the hole suggests body openings and birth.
Throughout the various extensions of Copenhagen Airport,
there has always been a common focal point - the classical princip-
les of architecture and function that expressed the architectural
trends of the time. A stroll through the terminals is also a stroll
through time and architectural evolution.
As you approach the airport on the Øresund motorway, you
get a sense of the consistent and coherent design in the uniform
facades of glass, steel and aluminium. They converge in a common
line that is continued and reflected in the airport’s hotel - the Hilton

Iron overload in the liver may occur in clinical conditions such as hemo-chromatosis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, and may lead to the deterior-ation of the normal liver architecture by mechanisms not well understood.
Although a relationship between the expression of ICAM-1, and classical
major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules, and iron over-load has been reported, no relationship has been identified between iron
overload and the expression of unconventional MHC class I molecules....
