2. That modern architecture cannot be dissociated from town or community planning was a statement made in all the representations to us. At present, we were told, 54 per cent of Canada's population is urban, and the proportion is growing rapidly. It is increasingly urgent therefore that anyone who constructs a building of any kind consider the relation of the new structure both to the site and to neighbouring buildings actual and potential, a point strongly brought to our attention by a professional architect who referred to this responsibility both as a public duty and as architectural good manners. 3. On the general state of both architecture and town planning we received somewhat disturbing reports. Architecture, according to one group, although it has the greatest influence of all the arts on the manner of living, is largely ignored by the public. "Builders are creating across the breadth of Canada row upon row of architectural monstrosities in communities whose almost immediate pattern is one of decline and blight." The justice of such a forthright statement by a group of younger professional architects, if not accepted, is certainly not denied by older individuals and groups, professional and amateur, who gave us their views. It was submitted to us that architecturally the public in general

Architecture at a juncture
China gave the world the Great Wall, pagoda roofs, screens, joints and other innovations of garden architecture. Yet that was centuries ago. Since then, China has been renowned for its concrete blocks. As the country turns to world-class talent to remake the Middle Kingdom as a modern showpiece, can China really replace crass with class?

"The Big Hole - yes, that would be a very apt name," the French architect says as he scans the partly excavated site alongside Tiananmen Square in the Chinese capital. Andreu's vision - a $300-million structure that is not so much a building as it is a futuristic bubble set in an artificial lake - has been repeatedly stalled by objections of Beijingers who derisively refer to it as the "alien egg." Others have not been so kind calling it a "Giant Turd." A series of project reviews have hampered development and no official date is set for completion. Andreu is undeterred. "This will be my most successful work," he predicts.

Buildings using short wall-ties
This page presents information on the vernacular architecture of the Low Countries, especially brick building which were constructed using short-wall anchors (muurankers). This technique was used in many of the colonies of the Netherlands, and also spread around the North Sea and Baltic. Please note that it has not been overhauled since 1999, and thus does not reflect the most recent research, or, necessarily, my current thinking. My html skills have moved on some, too! I am currently researching the meaning of short wall anchors at the Department of Archaeology, University of York, and that does not leave me much time for updating my site. I am using TimeMap software to present the data, and this will be publically available through the Electronic Cultural Atlas when it is complete and checked (eta August 2004).

Architecture: Yard
Comparison between yarded houses in Iran and other countries
Scope of expansion of houses with yard in East countries consists a long chain from Iran as far as North Africa and contains many countries like Iran, Iraq, Greece, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. In some of those countries, in addition to houses with yard, some yard less houses are also built. In other countries, such as Saudi Arabia, widespread species of multistory houses without yard are built. In every region, with regard to climate specifications and current architectural culture, houses with yard are formed. Notwithstanding those differences and various specifications, faith and belief of religious culture, result creation of a sanctuary for private life of residents. Then yard and organization of different spaces around yard, play an important role to achieve this aim. Yard in those countries has an utmost similarity to yards of coastal cities of Iran in Persian Gulf, specially to Bushir and in some instances are alike fully closed yards of Central Iran.

The status of CSE at Norwegian universities and research institutes is given in Chapter . In the present chapter, universities and research institutes in Europe and USA (mainly) are covered. The main focus will be on research and education related to CSE at the
universities. Research based on CSE at the research institutes all over the world is too extensive to be covered in this report. It is strongly emphasized that the material in this chapter by no means is meant to be complete. That would have required a much more extensive investigation. At the universities there have been an increased CSE activity on the educational side, perhaps most evident in the USA. John Rice has described thirteen CSE (or similar) educational programs . These programs try to give their students the knowledge needed to solve computational problems in engineering and science. It is reported that the situation today is that we too ofte have engineers or scientists working on CSE projects with too little knowledge about computing, or computer scientists with too little know-how in engineering and science.

Research Influence of various architectural spaces as an effective factor in featuring a building was not uniform. For example, influence of climatic-geometric factor at foundation of residence building, were much more than other factors; therefore, various fronts of house never had a unique application, design or space, but each one in accordance to their position in North, South, East or West, in each region, had special design. While, in public buildings and religious constructions, climatic factor had little effect in designing and architecture; for example, in religious schools, Caravanserais, chambers were built in all four fronts of yard and usually designed and erected with similar conditions to benefit maximum spaces around yard. Among all architecture spaces, mosques, specially congregational mosques, in big cities underwent less influence of climatic conditions, but mostly under worshipping conditions and general principles of architecture; for example, build the place toward direction of "Kiblah" or setting main Shabestan on the front of Kiblah, is a principal, which was considered in all mosques.

Residents of depressed and wartorn areas may find 'superadobes ' made of moist dirt and loose cement, reliable, affordable, and stylish. what Mr. Khalili calls his "superadobe" houses. In the United States, style of architecture, which originated in Iran and Afghanistan, may not be readily accepted in other countries.
Residents of Tortola got the unique opportunity to witness the architecture of the Virgin Islands from the year 300 to 1999 during the staging of the first in a series of exhibitions planned by the Millennium Committee.
The exhibition was mounted at the East End/Long Look Community Centre and appropriately depicted ways in which Virgin Islanders built their shelters over the centuries. According to Committee member Mrs. Medita Wheatley, beyond the actuality of what is seen in the buildings themselves, there is a symbolic representation of how their social, political and economic structures were built as well.
Early in 1982, under the direction of the Community Development Department, the project began to record Virgin Islands architecture. This project was aimed at giving credit to the generations of carpenters and masons whose skill produced this architectural heritage; determining the social and economic factors that have influenced building design and choice of material; recording by photographs and drawings examples of Virgin Islands
architecture and preparing an inventory of buildings of historical, architectural and social importance and creating

Economic Changes
Before the discovery of oil, the economy of the country was poor, primitive, and simple. It depended mainly on sheep herding and pearl collection. It could be described as “the pearl era” as opposed to “the oil era.” Besides pearl catching there were other minor sources of income such as fishing, trading, farming, and sheep keeping. The inhabitants were mainly belonging to one of the following groups: Bedouins, or Settlers. The social system was tribal similar to social systems found in the rest of the Gulf area. Their work ranged from fishing to farming to hunting to sheep raising. Bedouins depended on sheep raising moving from one place to another searching for water and resources. Some tribes were settlers such as Al Awamer and Al Manaseer who settled in the area of Abu Dhabi. Al Naim tribe lived in the desert area. During their travel, the Bedouins used to take their belongings and animals with them. The settlers were mainly fishermen. They also worked in pearl trading, and farming near the coastal areas. The farmers settled in villages by the desert oasis, such as Al Ain villages. After the discovery of oil, the economy changed dramatically. Oil became the major source of income for the country. The introduction of modern technology accompanying oil excavations and fast exchange with the rest of the world made the means of modern life available to the citizens. With the construction of oil fields, oil companies provided settlements for their workers and families. Following the production of oil with large amounts, the UAE became one of the large oil exporting countries of the world. During the Seventies, the economy of the country was booming and other economic activities were also flourishing including fishing, farming and trading.

Author : Hakan Groth. Photographs : Fritz von der Schulenberg. First published : Thames and Hudson, London, 1990.

This beautifully presented book on Neoclassical interiors and furniture in Sweden has become the standard English language reference book on the subject. A French version has also been published.
There is little other accessible English language material on Swedish Neoclassical buildings. The book is well-written, easy to read and shows real scholarship; some of the grand houses it covers, being in private ownership and inaccessible to the public have not received this level of scrutiny or attention outside Sweden before.
It is a good book for the student to begin with to research a different area of Neoclassicism as it sets out facts in a meticulous manner without being judgmental. Its author, Hakan Groth, found that there was no reference work which people could refer to when enquiring about the Gustavian and Empire periods in Sweden. The book is therefore written to give a clear picture of 20 Neoclassical houses to those unfamiliar with Sweden. It has something of the flavour of an excellent guidebook, would serve well as one, and avoids drawing unnecessarily narrow conclusions from the facts which other authors, writing on English Neoclassical subjects, sometimes do.

Spain had prohibited Catalonia from sharing in the exploitation of the American colonies, and this now worked in favor of the Catalans who developed local agriculture, textile industries and trading contacts.

Itsukushma Shrine Overview Overview Chinese architecture has historically influenced that of Japan. In spite of this, there are still major differences between the two. One variation with Japanese architecture typically placed people on the floor to sit, whereas that of China had them sitting in chairs. This custom began to change though in the Meiji period (1868-1912). Another influence, besides lifestyle, is the climate. Japanese have to plan according to the climate and season changes. Since most of Japan has long, hot summers, the houses reflect that by being somewhat raised so that air can move all around. Wood is a popular choice for material because it adjusts well to earthquakes and works well with season changes (cool in summer, warm in winter). Buddhism as well has greatly influenced Japanese architecture since it's introduction from China during the Asuka period (593-710). Horyuki Temple was built in 607 under the influence of Buddhism, and was registered in 1993 as a UNESCO World Heritage property. The layout of this temple has been unchanged and preserved over the years. The Buddhist deity worshipped at the temple is housed in the main hall, which is the oldest wooden structure in the world and the center of the entire complex. Back to Top The Nara period (710-794) brought about imitation of the Chinese capital. A capital city, Heijokyo, was planned as an imitation of the Chinese capital and included a checkerboard pattern for the streets. Nobility were housed in buildings during the Heian period (794-1185) that had the main buildings and sleeping rooms in the center with corridors connecting other apartments. This style is called

New Zealand Architecture
Buildings in New Zealand tell a unique story of immigrants - from both Polynesia and Europe - coming to a strange land and adapting known building forms to new conditions and materials. The immigrants found large, forested islands which had a temperate but highly variable and sometimes extreme climate. Combined Traditions
The earliest buildings in New Zealand were the humble huts of the first Polynesians. By the time of European contact, the Maori had evolved a particular building type, the meeting house, which is the only building unique to New Zealand. In form it was a simple, gable-ended structure with an open porch at one end, but it was a building integrated into its setting, the marae-atea, and a building which is, in a real sense, the ancestor after whom most are named. By the mid nineteenth century the meeting houses were generally highly carved. These wharenui, or meeting houses, play a role in community life unlike the role played by any European-derived buildings, even churches. Some of the most exciting and original buildings in New Zealand (the Futuna Chapel in Wellington and the Arthur's Pass Chapel for example) marry the form and spirit of the Maori meeting house with traditions drawn from European architecture.
