Not just black and white, but also tomato red, melon yellow, peppermint green... Finally, the book reveals the architects' general concepts which incorporate the living, the natural surroundings in the plans.
Author: Liesbeth Waechter-Böhm
Hermann & Valentiny first came to public attention in the 1980s with their villa in the Rauchstrasse, a part of the International Building Exhibition in Berlin, when postmodernism was at its peak in Europe. Since then the office which is based in Vienna and Remerschen has built in Austria, Luxembourg and Germany, and its architecture has progressed in both form and content. Representing Luxembourg at the architecture biennale in Venice, Hermann & Valentiny reveal how architecture and art can be successfully combined. This up-to-date report "Now" illustrates how conceptual questions and a comparatively restricted choice of materials dominate the work of Hermann & Valentiny. Wherever possible they use concrete to replace plaster; glass maintains its unique role; metal mesh acts as a membrane, allowing historical architecture to shimmer through. Moreover, colour has a special function in their architecture. Not just black and white, but also tomato red, melon yellow, peppermint green... Finally, the book reveals the architects' general concepts which incorporate the living, the natural surroundings in the plans.

This work surveys research from a range of perspectives in order to examine how children develop problem-solving skills. The author suggests that successful problem-solving is a social process, and that sharing problem-solving - with adults and other children - is vital to a child's development.

This book approaches VLSI neural networks from a practical viewpoint, using case studies to show the full process of VLSI implementation of a network, and addressing the important issues of learning algorithms and limited precision effects. System aspects and low-power implementation issues are also covered. The authors are all international figures in the field from AT&T Bell Labs, Bellcore and SEDAL.
Testing expert W. James Popham cuts through the jargon and the hype to provide the definitive nuts-and-bolts introduction to formative assessment, a process with the power to completely transform teaching and learning. In his inimitable style, Popham explains the research supporting formative assessment's effectiveness and why familiarity with this research is the key to preserving both teacher sanity and district funds. You'll find step-by-step guidance on how to build frameworks for formative assessment and how to carry out each of the process's four levels: teachers' instructional adjustments, students' learning tactic adjustments, a classroom climate shift, and schoolwide implementation. This book is the place to start for educators considering formative assessment, curious about why their school system is embracing formative assessment, or wondering why the "formative assessments" they're using now aren't producing the desired results. Here, you'll learn what formative assessment is and isn't, what it can do and what it can't, and the practical way to reap its very real rewards: better teaching and better learning.
This book presents a systematic study of the concepts and algorithms for generic model management.
Author: Sergey Melnik
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Many challenging problems in information systems engineering involve the manipulation of complex metadata artifacts or models, such as database schema, interface specifications, or object diagrams, and mappings between models. Applications solving metadata manipulation problems are complex and hard to build. The goal of generic model management is to reduce the amount of programming needed to solve such problems by providing a database infrastructure in which a set of high-level algebraic operators are applied to models and mappings as a whole rather than to their individual building blocks. This book presents a systematic study of the concepts and algorithms for generic model management. The first prototype of a generic model management system is described, the algebraic operators are introduced and analyzed, and novel algorithms for implementing them are developed. Using the prototype system and the operators presented, solutions are developed for several practically relevant problems, such as change propagation and reintegration.

Instead, this book argues that we must reform our towns and cities so that they become attractive, humane places where people will choose to live.
Author: David Rudlin
The book reviews the way that planning policies, architectural trends and economic forces have undermined the viability of urban areas in Britain since the Industrial Revolution. Now that much post-war planning philosophy is being discredited we are left with few urban models other than garden city inspired suburbia. Are these appropriate in the 21st century given environmental concerns, demographic change, social and economic pressures? The authors suggest that these trends point to a very different urban future. If the 19th century home was the terrace and the 20th century was the suburban semi, what will be the 21st century home? In the 21st century it is likely that a change will take place in the way that we build our towns and cities, as dramatic as that brought about by the garden city pioneers a hundred years ago. Change should not, however, be brought about by regulation or by forcing people against their will to return to towns and cities. Instead, this book argues that we must reform our towns and cities so that they become attractive, humane places where people will choose to live. The Sustainable Urban Neighbourhood is a model for such reform and the book describes what this would look like and how it might be brought about. David Rudlin BA, MTP and Dr Nicholas Falk MBA are directors of URBED (The Urban and Economic Development Group), a not-for-profit consultancy which has been working since 1976 to devise practical solutions to the problems of urban areas. They were responsible for the '21st Century Homes: Building to Last' report for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation which first developed the notion of the Sustainable Urban Neighbourhood. David Rudlin is a town planner and urban designer and has been closely involved in the redevelopment of the 'Hulme Guide to Development'. He was also a member of an advisory panel responsible for drawing up the 'Manchester Guide to Development'. Nicholas Falk is an economist and strategic planner who formerly worked for the Ford Motor Company before establishing URBED in 1976. He has written and lectured widely on urban issues and was the principle author of 'Vital and Viable Town Centres: Meeting the Challenge' for the Department of the Environment. · Explore how to combine social, environmental and economic thinking with urban design · Benefit from Rudlin and Falk's expertise in urban planning and development
