The Architecture of Modern Italy is a foreign book, research the history of modern architecture in Italy in the years 1750 - 1900, is a full set of architecture who studies the West (Italy) period modern
This collection of essays seeks to explore the vernacular dialogues and contested identities that shaped a complex cultural and architectural phenomenon like Mediterranean modernism. The authors bring to light the debt twentiethcentury modernist architects owe to the vernacular building traditions of the Mediterranean region, a geographical area that touches three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia. This book is subdivided into two sections of essays by an international group of scholars who adopt a number of different methodological perspectives.
Roman theatres were complex buildings, closer in design to
modern theatres than Greek ones. The seating was arranged in a
semicircle around the orchestra as in the Greek theatre, but the
stage and scene building were joined to the auditorium and rose
to the same height, creating a sense of enclosure more like that
of a modern theatre. This sense of enclosure was made more
emphatic by the fact that some smaller theatres or odea were
roofed and larger ones often had awnings (vela) overhead to
shade the audience.
Our goal in writing this book is to expose the inner workings of the modern
digital computer at a level that demystifies what goes on inside the machine.
The only prerequisite to
Principles of Computer Architecture
is a working
knowledge of a high-level programming language. The breadth of material has
been chosen to cover topics normally found in a first course in computer
architecture or computer organization. The breadth and depth of coverage
have been steered to also place the beginning student on a solid track for continuing
studies in computer related disciplines....
The size and principal
characteristics of a new ship are determined primarily
by its mission or intended service. In addition to
basic functional considerations, there are requirements
such as stability, low resistance, high propulsive efficiency,
and navigational limitations on draft or beam, all
of which influence the choice of dimensions and form.
Within these and other basic constraints, the ship’s structure
must be designed to sustain all of the loads expected
to arise in its seagoing environment.
In this study of architecture's role in present-day consumer society, architect Antti Ahlava argues that the attempt to study the ever-more individualistic needs of consumers in architecture is a vain act. With an approach based on the theories of French sociologist Jean Baudrillard, Ahlava argues the calls for satisfaction, indivisualisation, personalisation and creativity are actually the very core of a "magical" manipulation and "mythical" control within the socio-economic system of the culture industry.
Modern embedded systems come with contradictory design constraints. On one hand, these systems often target mass production and battery-based devices, and therefore should be cheap and power efficient. On the other hand, they still need to show high (sometimes real-time) performance, and often support multiple applications and standards which requires high programmability.
Church architecture is a contentious ﬁeld of inquiry. Polemics, dog-
matism, and caricature abound. It would be unrealistic to think any
book could resolve the controversies, but a fresh look at the most
basic questions about churches, their meanings and their uses, may
prove useful to all sides. The incentive to write this book was mixed:
it grew out of historical interest, but also out of an urge to see more
clearly what churches have meant and what they can mean for com-
munities that build and use them.
"Lighting Modern Buildings" documents the part played by the independent lighting designer, leading to a greater understanding by architects and lighting engineers of the importance of lighting in architectural design.
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
Exploring a modern NIC: An introduction to programming the Intel 82573L gigabit ethernet network interface controller is Token Ring, Ethernet, Ethernet LAN, Ethernet Versus Token Ring, Hardware Features, External Architecture.
Optical Switching Networks describes all the major switching paradigms developed for
modern optical networks, discussing their operation, advantages, disadvantages, and
implementation. Following a review of the evolution of optical wavelength division
multiplexing (WDM) networks, an overview of the future of optical networks is set out.
Hardware and Computer Organization is a practical introduction to the architecture of modern microprocessors for students and professional alike. It is designed to take practicing professionals "under the hood” of a PC and provide them with an understanding of the basics of the complex machine that has become such a pervasive part of our everyday life. It clearly explains how hardware and software cooperatively interact to accomplish real-world tasks.
This book is about the structure and function of computers. Its purpose is to present, as
clearly and completely as possible, the nature and characteristics of modern-day computers.
This task is a challenging one for two reasons.
First, there is a tremendous variety of products, from single-chip microcomputers
costing a few dollars to supercomputers costing tens of millions of dollars, that can
rightly claim the name computer.Variety is exhibited not only in cost, but also in size,
performance, and application.
The past several years have marked a significant 'framework boom', and almost
everyone involved in web application development these days is a part of a new
generation of 'framework boomers'. Web development frameworks help jumpstart
your application by immediately delivering the core foundation and plumbing
needed to quickly turn your ideas scribbled on the whiteboard into a functional
and production-ready code.

My interest in urban design began in the mid 1950s
with Professor McCaughan’s history of planning
lectures given in the then Department of Civic
Design, University of Liverpool. At those lectures
‘Mac’ made it quite clear that he was a follower of
Camillo Sitte, a Viennese architect whose main work
dated from the last decade of the nineteenth century.
IMS – the IP Multimedia Subsystem of the 3GPP family of telecommunication standards –
may very well be at the same time the worst and the best kept secret of the telecom world.
“Secret” because it is essentially designed to be invisible – the modern version of the infrastructure
that delivers communication to the world. “Worst kept” because it has dominated
the strategies for communication evolution in the past years, and has thus been very visible,
at least to those in the industry.
When I saw the plans, my immediate impression was.... unbelievable.
I thought this can’t be The Cotswolds. It must be California or Switzerland
or anywhere else on the globe where good, modern architecture seems
to happen naturally. But I was wrong. It is believable and it’s really
happening in Gloucestershire.
Masterpiece architecture is exciting enough wherever it is built, but there’s
something extraordinary here.We are in the deeply conservative English
From the close of World War II until sometime in the middle of the 1960s
two grand ideals ruled the architectural profession. One was a political
faith in the vision of modernity – the meliorist belief that by affecting
social change and imposing a universal environmental order architects
could improve the human lot and repair a globe wrought by physical and
moral devastation. The second was the belief that the most efficient way to
achieve this amelioration was through technology and its application.
