Site Engineering for Landscape Architects
Steven Strom, Kurt Nathan and Jake WolandSite Engineering for Landscape ArchitectsFifth EditionThe leading guide to site design and engineering, now fully updated.The leading choice for site engineering, planning, and construction courses, as well as for practitioners in the field, Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fifth Edition introduces the principles and techniques of basic site engineering for grading, drainage, earthwork, and road alignment. The Fifth Edition maintains the text's recognized quality, while revising its content to keep readers up to date with current technologies in the field of landscape architecture.Introducing landform and the language of its design, the text explores the site engineering concepts essential to practicing landscape architecture today—from interpreting landform and contour lines, to designing horizontal and vertical road alignments, to construction sequencing, to designing and sizing stormwater management systems. Integrating design with the construction and implementation processes, the authors provide students with a progressive understanding of the subject matter.This new edition expands its coverage of such current topics as sustainability, green roofs, bioengineering, and lightweight and structural soils. It also features new case studies, as well as inspiring graphics and color photos with real-world examples.Perfect for use as a study guide for the most difficult section of the Landscape Architecture Registration Exam (LARE) or as a handy professional reference, Site Engineering for Landscape Architects, Fifth Edition gives readers a strong foundation for engaging in site development that is environmentally sensitive and intellectually stimulating.
Fundamentals of Building Construction: Materials and Methods
Edward Allen and Joseph IanoNow in its Fifth Edition, this essential textbook has been used by thousands of students annually in schools of architecture, engineering, and construction technology. The bestselling reference focuses on the basic materials and methods used in building construction, emphasizing common construction systems such as light wood frames, masonry bearing walls, steel frames, and reinforced concrete. New introductory material on the processes, organization, constraints, and choices in construction offers a better look at the management of construction. New sections covering the building envelope uncover the secrets to designing enclosures for thermal insulation, vapor retarders, air barriers, and moisture control. The Fifth Edition also features more axonometric detail drawings and revised photographs for a thoroughly illustrated approach and the latest IBC 2006, CSI MasterFormat, ASTM references, and LEED information.
Enterprise Architecture at Work: Modelling, Communication and Analysis (The Enterprise Engineering Series)
Marc LankhorstAn enterprise architecture tries to describe and control an organisation’s structure, processes, applications, systems and techniques in an integrated way. The unambiguous specification and description of components and their relationships in such an architecture requires a coherent architecture modelling language. Lankhorst and his co-authors present such an enterprise modelling language that captures the complexity of architectural domains and their relations and allows the construction of integrated enterprise architecture models. They provide architects with concrete instruments that improve their architectural practice. As this is not enough, they additionally present techniques and heuristics for communicating with all relevant stakeholders about these architectures. Since an architecture model is useful not only for providing insight into the current or future situation but can also be used to evaluate the transition from ‘as-is’ to ‘to-be’, the authors also describe analysis methods for assessing both the qualitative impact of changes to an architecture and the quantitative aspects of architectures, such as performance and cost issues. The modelling language presented has been proven in practice in many real-life case studies and has been adopted by The Open Group as an international standard. So this book is an ideal companion for enterprise IT or business architects in industry as well as for computer or management science students studying the field of enterprise architecture.

Complete with more than 1,000 illustrations, the book moves through each of the key stages of the design process, from site selection to building components, mechanical systems, and finishes.Illustrated throughout with clear and accurate drawings that present the state of the art in construction processes and materialsUpdated and revised to include the latest knowledge on sustainability, incorporation of building systems, and use of new materialsArchetypal drawings offer clear inspiration for designers and draftersReflects the most current building codes and CSI Master Format numbering schemeWith its comprehensive and lucid presentation of everything from foundations and floor systems to finish work, Building Construction Illustrated, Fourth Edition equips students and professionals in all areas of architecture and construction with useful guidelines for approaching virtually any new materials or techniques they may encounter in building planning, design, and construction.
Enterprise Architecture Planning: Developing a Blueprint for Data, Applications, and Technology
Steven H. SpewakAbout This Book Praise for Enterprise Architecture Planning-- ". the book has given me a wealth of good, fresh ideas about every facet of the architecture process . makes a substantive contribution to the body of IS planning knowledge." --John A. Zachman Zachman Information Systems Enterprise Architecture Planning is more advanced than traditional system planning approaches because you:* define a stable business model independent of organizational boundaries, systems, and procedures,* define data before application, and* let data determine the sequence for implementing applications systems.Here the authors give you a common-sense approach to Enterprise Architecture Planning. You'll find dozens of examples of architectures, procedures, checklists, and useful guidelines to support these techniques. This is the best guide available to help you ensure a cost-effective, long-term solution.

Pamphlet Architecture 30: Coupling: Strategies for Infrastructural Opportunism
Mason White, Lola Sheppard, Neeraj Bhatia and Maya PrzybylskiParticipants in the Pamphlet Architecture 30 competition were asked to respond to the theme "Investigations in Infrastructure," and propose new directions for architecture, transportation, energy, cities, and agriculture at a continental scale. The winning entry, Coupling, imagined six daring projects: a high-speed rail system across the Bering Strait that also collects freshwater from the seasonal iceshelf; a decommissioned airport transformed into a geothermal data farm and agriculture site; thickening on/off ramps around "big box" stores into circular parking lots; a call toinclude landfills in the list of preserved open spaces; and a saline terminal lake turned into a water farm, recreational retreat, and habitat haven. Coupling argues that infrastructures behave as artificially maintained natural systems. Rather than a New Deal approach of massive engineering or iconic infrastructure, Coupling employs adaptable, responsive, small-scale interventions whose impacts are global in scale.
