In the traditional architecture, buildings were designed without architects and techniques were used to achieve human comfort. Locally available building materials and construction technology were employed, since they were responsive to their climatic and geographic conditions. Traditional buildings in contrast to Modern buildings constructed in 20th century are more climate-responsive. Each region of the world employs its own techniques and designs in its buildings that are best suited to that particular region and that incorporates the region’s cultural
Choice of Materiality on Contextual Design Nature also affects architectural design in a way that the natural material it provides has been very popular among designers not only to fit in with the context, but also to achieve sustainability in the design. Materiality has been very influential in architectural design where designers normally play with different use of materials in order to make a design interesting. The subject of material has been the foundation of architecture where every design is non- seperable from the usage of materials; and yet, applying the suitable material based on different design philosophy and approach is rather important on an architectural design. According to Frank Lloyd Wright, materiality is one of the most significant design elements to be taken into considerations when designing ‘organic architecture’, same applies to contextual architecture. In oder for a building design to be relatively contextual, one of the easiest way to achieve the goal is by playing with the choice of materiality applied on the design.
Lots of biomimetic technologies or materials are not more sustainable than the original product and are not designed to be so. A building that can mimic natural processes and functions can act like an ecosystem. In this way the building becomes part of something that goes beyond sustainability, it becomes something regenerative. A buildings aesthetically design that is inspired on an organism but is made and functions the same as an conventionally building, is unlikely more sustainable than a non-biomimetic building. The potential lies in the simulating of nature’s processes and functions, in this way the building can act like an
Once we have created the concept of personal property, we become greedy, we have an urge; we begin to want more things we need, thus resulting in societal problems such as slavery, tyranny, and the objectification of other human beings for our own gain. Correspondingly, it’s clear – Through The Social Contract, Althusser, and Levin’s interpretations, that Rousseau believes man is unable to return to the state of nature, considering man is constantly in a perpetual state of war within society. Rousseau repeatedly claims that the state of nature dissolves when human beings create property (which, in turn, inspired
Architecture is considered to be a ‘process of planning, designing and constructing buildings’. It is often perceived as cultural symbols e.g. churches and cathedrals, or works of art. On the other hand a ‘designer creates designs that are attractive, functional and uniquely suited to the human needs’. In some ways the two are very similar and there are many parallels between the two art forms , for example, both have a purpose of creating shelter, warmth and protection in order for our survival, they are also both forms of art that ‘create space and volume out of two dimensional materials’.
This is not morally wrong in the setup of traditions but, it creates placelessness for certain qualities of specific cultures like lifestyle, architecture and beliefs to mention a few. Architecture, which is our aim of focus, is specific to different cultures and traditions. The success of having architecture
Through the distortion of epic conventions, the presentation of advanced technologies, and the monetization of the Spanish economy, Cervantes grapples with the common misunderstanding that the past must be sacrificed in order to survive an advancing modern world. Therefore, he establishes a social commentary on the invasion of modernity in Spain, which leads to an untraditional form of liberation for our hero. It is no secret that Cervantes was a revolutionary in the world of literature. In fact, in his The Western Canon: The Books and School of the Ages Harold Bloom states, “only Cervantes and Shakespeare occupy the highest eminence; you cannot get ahead of them, because they are always there before you” (Bloom, Harold pg. 779).
Introduction Have you ever felt that we are spiralling into the world of technology in a negative way? Do you think you are included in the materialistic revolution of our society? Should it be stopped? Better yet, CAN it be stopped? In today’s world, we tend to think that materialism and materialistic items are the most absolute priority to have.
2) A surface pollution (oxidation or adsorption) introduces the foreign and detrimental matter in the metal powders this can be avoided if all the processes undergone are made in a clean environment i.e. free of contaminants. This is very difficult to achieve in all cases of industrial practice. 3) The compaction techniques such as die pressing or isostatic pressing are highly technically inefficient. 4) Sintering has three stages namely, slow heating during burn off, a constant temperature period, and cooling after sintering.
