Discipline Of Architecture by Andrzej Piotrowski
English | 2000 | ISBN: 0816636648 | 344 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
Architecture A polemical look at how architectural knowledge is produced, disseminated, and received.

Discipline Of Architecture
In the vast literature on architectural theory and practice, the ways in which architectural knowledge is actually taught, debated, and understood are too often ignored. The essays collected in this groundbreaking volume address the current state of architecture as an academic and professional discipline. The issues considered range from the form and content of architectural education to the architect's social and environmental obligations and the emergence of a new generation of architects. Often critical of the current paradigm, these essays offer a provocative challenge to accepted assumptions about the production, dissemination, and reception of architectural knowledge.

Natalie L. Rasgon, "The Effects of Estrogen on Brain Function"
English | ISBN: 0801882826 | 2006 | 180 pages | PDF | 2 MB

The Effects of Estrogen on Brain Function
This timely volume reviews current data on the effects of estrogen on the central nervous system, highlighting clinical aspects of this topic. Experts from the fields of psychiatry, pharmacology, neurology, and geriatrics collaborate to clarify the known risks and benefits of hormone therapy and explore questions that remain to be elucidated.

Among the topics discussed:" Preclinical data on estrogen's effects on cognitive performance" The short-lived effects of hormone replacement therapy on cognitive function" Structural and functional brain imaging data regardingestrogen's effects on the central nervous system " Preclinical efforts to develop effective NeuroSERMs for the brain " The effects of estrogen on mood

Citing the ongoing confusion over the risks and benefits of estrogen therapy, the contributors emphasize the need for additional research on medication, doses, preparations, methods of administration, alternative therapies, and supplements.

This volume educates researchers, clinicians, and students on the current knowledge-including the effects of estrogen on mood, cognition, and brain metabolism-and provides guidelines for clinical practice and future research.

Inside Smartgeometry: Expanding the Architectural Possibilities of Computational Design

FREEDownload : Inside Smartgeometry: Expanding the Architectural Possibilities of Computational Design

Inside Smartgeometry: Expanding the Architectural Possibilities of Computational Design by Terri Peters and Brady Peters
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1118522478 | ISBN-13: 9781118522479 | 272 pages | PDF | 27 MB
Smartgeometry (SG) is a key influence on the architectural community who explore creative computational methods for the design of buildings. An informal international network of practitioners and researchers, the group meets annually to experiment with new technologies and collaborate to develop digital design techniques.

Inside Smartgeometry: Expanding the Architectural Possibilities of Computational Design
When SG was founded in 2001 by London-based architects and friends Hugh Whitehead (Foster + Partners), J Parrish (AECOM) and Lars Hesselgren (PLP), there was little in the way of parametric tools for architecture. SG was founded to encourage the development, discussion and experimentation of digital design techniques driven by design intent rather than on construction specifications. SG calls for a re-consideration of the design process, where the creation of computational mechanisms become an integral part of designing – not a task done prior to or separate from the process. In the early years of the workshops this need for new ways of design thinking led to the development of Bentley´s GenerativeComponents software. In recent years, the ecology of these design environments has diversified to include multiple software platforms, as well as innovative fabrication techniques and interactive environments. SG has grown accordingly from a handful of experts to an international network of designers who are defining the future of design. Founded by digital pioneers, it creates the algorithmic designers of the future.

Inside Smartgeometry can be seen as a retroactive manifesto for SG, examining and contextualising the work of the SG community: the digital spaces, prototypes and buildings designed using bespoke tools created in response to architectural ideas. From interactive crowd-sourcing tools to responsive agent-based systems to complex digitally fabricated structures, it explores more than a decade of advances that have been influential for architecture. Through 23 original texts including reflections by the founders, and key contributors such as Robert Aish, Martin Bechthold, Mark Burry, Chris Williams and Robert Woodbury, the book offers a critical state of the art of computational design for architecture. Many international design and engineering firms have participated in SG and the book includes chapters by practitioners from offices such as CASE, Design2Production, Foster + Partners, Grimshaw, Populous and SOM.

I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt

FREEDownload : I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt

I'll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt (John and Robin Dickson Series in Texas Music, sponsored by the Center for Texas) by Cowboy" Jack Clements
English | Nov 28, 2011 | ISBN: 1603445269 | 272 Pages | PDF | 126 MB

I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt
In this tightly woven, intelligently written book, Brian T. Atkinson interviews both well-known musicians and up-and-coming artists to reveal, in the performers' own words, how their creative careers have been shaped by the life and work of Townes Van Zandt. Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Rodney Crowell, Lucinda Williams, and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the established musicians who share their impressions of the breathtakingly beautiful tunes and lyrics he created, along with their humorous, poignant, painful, and indelible memories of witnessing Van Zandt's rise and fall.

Atkinson balances the reminiscences of seasoned veterans with the observations of relative newcomers to the international music scene, such as Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Josh Ritter, and Scott Avett (the Avett Brothers), presenting a nuanced view of Van Zandt's singular body of work, his reckless lifestyle, and his long-lasting influence. Forewords by "Cowboy" Jack Clement and longtime Van Zandt manager and friend Harold F. Eggers Jr. open the book, and each chapter begins with an introduction in which Atkinson provides context and background, linking each interviewee to Van Zandt's legacy.

An Imperishable Heritage: British Choral Music from Parry to Dyson

FREEDownload : An Imperishable Heritage: British Choral Music from Parry to Dyson

Stephen Town, "An Imperishable Heritage: British Choral Music from Parry to Dyson"
English | ISBN: 0754605361 | 2012 | 354 pages | PDF | 5 MB

An Imperishable Heritage: British Choral Music from Parry to Dyson
The rehabilitation of British music began with Hubert Parry and Charles Villiers Stanford. Ralph Vaughan Williams assisted in its emancipation from continental models, while Gerald Finzi, Edmund Rubbra and George Dyson flourished in its independence. Stephen Town's survey of Choral Music of the English Musical Renaissance is rooted in close examination of selected works from these composers. Town collates the substantial secondary literature on these composers, and brings to bear his own study of the autograph manuscripts. The latter form an unparalleled record of compositional process and shed new light on the compositions as they have come down to us in their published and recorded form. This close study of the sources allows Town to identify for the first time instances of similarity and imitation, continuities and connections between the works.
