<strong>Instant Revit!: A Quick and Easy Guide to Learning Autodesk® Revit® 2018</strong><br /><br />This book is designed to give the student a basic introduction to the Revit 2018 computer aided design (CAD) program. The book contains step-by-step project tutorials with screenshots using the Revit program. The student begins with three warm-up projects designed to familiarize them with the Revit interface. These projects will use the 2D portion of the program that will guide the student through a two-view drawing of a single story house, a one-view drawing of a geometrical component, and a lighting plan with two alternate plans.<br /><br />Once the student completes these projects, they will begin the final project. The project is a two-story residential structure. A three-dimensional model of the project will be developed and used to create views of the: first and second floor plans, section views, interior and exterior elevations, and detail views of the structure. Some of these drawings will be annotated with dimensions and notes. Door, window, and room finish schedules will be also be created. Once these drawings are completed, the student will then create design options of the structure. This allows the design to be presented with multiple styles or options within the same file.<br /><br />There is also a companion website for the book that is maintained by the author. Purchasers of the book will be able to download files that are used in the tutorials.<br /><br />Revit families are presented as part of the project. Families are groups of elements that may be added to the project such as: furniture, cabinetry, appliances, lighting, people, counter tops, etc… The student will utilize these files to add various elements to their project. Family files are also provided from manufacturer’s sites and the companion website.<br /><br />Students will then be guided through the process of creating perspective views and renderings of the project. Instruction includes use of the Autodesk 360 site to process renderings within a cloud. Cloud rendering utilizes an Autodesk server for processing instead of the student's own computer. This allows for renderings to be created at a much faster rate.<br /><br />At the end of the project, the student has the option of creating a PDF portfolio of the project. This uses an additional, free program to assemble the files.<br /><br />Emphasis is placed on making the learning process as quick and as easy as possible with a minimum of extra information. This way the student may concentrate on completing the project and becoming a productive Revit drafter and designer in a relatively short time.<br />

<P><EM>Urban Planning’s Philosophical Entanglements</EM> explores the long-held idea that urban planning is the link in moving from knowledge to action. Observing that the knowledge domain of the planning profession is constantly expanding, the approach is a deep philosophical analysis of what is the quality and character of understanding that urban planners need for expert engagement in urban planning episodes. This book philosophically analyses the problems in understanding the nature of action — both individual and social action. Included in the analysis are the philosophical concerns regarding space/place and the institution of private property. The final chapter extensively explores the linkage between knowledge and action. This emerges as the process of design in seeking better urban communities — design processes that go beyond buildings, tools, or fashions but are focused on bettering human urban relationships. </P><I><br /><P>Urban Planning’s Philosophical Entanglements </I>provides rich analysis and understanding of the theory and history of planning and what it means for planning practitioners on the ground. </P>

Ella era increíblemente azul, casi ojos violeta con largas pestañas y un pelo negro sorprendentemente elegante, delgado detrás de la frente alta. Su piel era blanca, casi luminoso. Alguien escribió, si no me equivoco, sobre Shelley que su piel se ilumina desde el interior. Si es así, entonces la tez de Shelley era exactamente el mismo que esta chica. Ella tenía rasgos delicados, boca pequeña con labios de color rosa y una voz que recuerda a las campanas del carillón chinos. Ella se alisó la falda amplia con un vestido brillante con un patrón de color rojo-azul-amarillo, se pasó una mano por el pelo negro y comenzó a hablar. Llamó Sylvia Blanco. Su hermano - Charlie White, un amigo de Johnny Troya. Hace sólo unos meses, se reunió de nuevo con su hermano después de muchos años de separación. Nacieron en Springfield, California. No, por supuesto, Illinois, donde vivió hasta la edad de once años. de Charlie seis años mayor que ella. A continuación, se separaron de la familia. Después del divorcio de la madre se fue con ella, Charlie estaba con su padre en Illinois. Su madre se volvió a casar, se trasladaron a América del Sur, y hace seis meses, de nuevo volvieron a los Estados Unidos, en California.

<i>The first guidebook devoted exclusively to New York City’s Art Deco treasures.</i><br /><br />Of all the world’s great cities, perhaps none is so defined by its Art Deco architecture as New York. Lively and informative, <i>New York Art Deco</i> leads readers step-by-step past the monuments of the 1920s and ’30s that recast New York as the world’s modern metropolis. Anthony W. Robins, New York’s best-known Art Deco guide, includes an introductory essay describing the Art Deco phenomenon, followed by eleven walking tour itineraries in Manhattan—each accompanied by a map designed by legendary New York cartographer John Tauranac—and a survey of Deco sites across the four other boroughs. Also included is a photo gallery of sixteen color plates by nationally acclaimed Art Deco photographer Randy Juster. In <i>New York Art Deco</i>, Robins has distilled thirty years’ worth of experience into a guidebook for all to enjoy at their own pace.<br /><br />A native New Yorker and twenty-year veteran of the New York City Landmarks Commission, Anthony W. Robins is the author of books on Grand Central Terminal, the World Trade Center, and the art and architecture of the New York subway system. A popular leader of walking tours all over New York City, he is best known for Art Deco, and organized the city’s first regularly scheduled series of Art Deco tours, sponsored by the Art Deco Society of New York. He is the recipient of the 2017 Guiding Spirit Award from the Guides Association of New York City.

Perché conoscere la Statistica?Perché viviamo in una società complessa, basata sull’informazione e la conoscenza, in cui si chiede ad ognuno di prendere continuamente decisioni, avere la capacità di comprendere e utilizzare la mole di informazioni diffuse dai mezzi di comunicazione e quindi di decidere sulle scelte da fare. Per il cittadino diventa pertanto importante possedere gli strumenti necessari per fare una scelta oculata, consapevole che si opera quotidianamente in condizioni di incertezza, tenuto conto dei numerosi fattori che possono condizionare la scelta. La statistica diventa così indispensabile in quanto fornisce strumenti di studio e lettura della realtà al cittadino, offrendo continue soluzioni a problemi concreti. Con il volume proposto l'autore vuole accompagnare il lettore a sviluppare il ragionamento statistico necessario per risolvere problemi con l'interpretazione dei dati. Il lettore potrà così comprendere come diversamente dalla matematica i metodi statistici sono efficaci solo se utilizzati con spirito critico e abilità.

<P>Stuart Walker’s design work has been described as life-changing, inspiring, disturbing and ferocious. </P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Drawing on an extraordinarily diverse range of sources and informed by creative practice, <I>Design for Life</I> penetrates to the heart of modern culture and the malaise that underlies today’s moral and environmental crises. </P><br /><P></P><br /><P>The author argues that this malaise is deep-seated and fundamental to the modern outlook. He shows how our preoccupation with technological progress, growth and the future has produced a constricted view of life – one that is both destructive and self-reinforcing. </P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Based on over twenty-five years of scholarship and creative practice, he demonstrates the vital importance of solitude, contemplation, inner growth and the present moment in developing a different course – one that looks squarely at our current, precarious situation while offering a positive, hopeful way forward – a way that is compassionate, context-based, human scale, ethically motivated and critically creative.</P><br /><P></P><I><br /><P>Design for Life </I>is an intensely original contribution that will be essential reading for design practitioners and students. Written in a clear, accessible style, it will also appeal to a broader readership, especially anyone who is concerned with contemporary society’s rising inequalities and environmental failings and is looking for a more constructive, balanced and thoughtful direction. </P>
