  Landscape Architecture A
Landscape architecture is the design profession which applies artistic, cultural, and scientific knowledge to the design, planning, and development of the land.
The practice of landscape architecture requires an appreciation and understanding of natural and social processes, a creative imagination, and a commitment to preserve or improve the environment for human use and enjoyment.
Domestic architecture in the first half of the 20th Century attempted to achieve a closer integration of the house with it^Òs surroundings, as seen in the works of Sven Markelius in Sweden, Alvar Aalto in Finland, and Frank Lloyd Wright in the United States (Encarta 5).

 Tadao Ando - Award Ceremony
Architecture has always been a classic art in the sense of a universal art and, because of this tradition of universalism in France, it is the major French art.
Then, that architectural theoretician of ancient Rome, Vitruvius, proposed three indispensable principles of architecture—utilitas, venustas, firmitas: utilitas is function (commodity) and firmitas is strength (firmness), both are measures of architectonic potential, while venustas (delight or beauty) resides in the dimension of imagination.
In other words, architectural space becomes alive only in correspondence with the human presence that perceives it in our contemporary culture, where all of us are subjected to intense exterior stimulation, especially by the electronic environment, the role of architectural space as a spiritual shelter is crucial.

 ArchVoices
In 1995, Progressive Architecture magazine published an article on women in the profession titled, "Women in Architecture: Leveling the Playing Field." Today's issue of ArchVoices is a reprint of that article, providing an opportunity to reflect on what has changed in the ten years since this text was first published.
Their numbers are rising steadily in the architecture schools (currently one-third of the total number of undergraduates and graduate students) [note: remember, this is a 1995 article].
Women are among the leaders in rethinking architectural education (both Sharon Sutton of the University of Michigan and Leslie Kanes Weisman of NJIT, for example, have reactivated community service studios, a concept that was promoted in the 1970s and marginalized in the 1980s).

 Space Future - The Architecture of Artificial Gravity: Theory, Form, and Function in the High Frontier
Architecture means to visualize the genius loci, and the task of the architect is to create meaningful places, whereby he helps man to dwell.
In terrestrial architecture, the up-down axis is normally tied to the force of gravity - the plumb line; the other axes are free to rotate around it.
Architectural design is not reducible to numeric calculation; psychology, culture, and philosophy must also be brought to bear.

 Enterprise Architecture: An Overview
In our view, this architecture should be the guiding architecture for the design and development of information systems (IS) in a ‘complex’ organization that is embarking on the design of its Enterprise Architecture.
King (1995) suggests that the guiding architecture of a firms should be based on the strategic vision.
Porter (cited in Pastore 1995) has proposed a similar concept in his notion of “complementarities." He argues that the various competitive capabilities of the firm should be “complementary” or “synergistic" so that the synergy resulting from them can not be easily imitated by current or potential competitors (Harrison 1996, Pastore 1995).

 1995 no 6
A phased program to develop coordinated methods for the emergency stabilization, documentation, analysis and conservation of the architectural remains, including the elaborately painted wall plasters and reliefs, at the pre-eminent Neolithic site of Catalhoyuk in southern Turkey began this year from August to October 1995.
During Phase 1, documentary research on the site's excavation and conservation history and the occurrence of plasters and related architecture fabric will be undertaken using earlier archaeological field reports to establish the extent and previous condition of the plasters from the time of excavation to the present.
In conjunction with the 1995 field season, a detailed conditions survey of the excavated walls, wall plasters and paintings will be made by applying standardized nomenclature and objective recording techniques already developed by the team at other sites.

We assert here that method invocations at this level of architectural abstraction are always getting values from and assigning values to slots in some data structure.
We are still working on the exact nature of this policy, but its effects are felt at the architectural level, and so must somehow be described in the architectural description.
Since the main form of communication in this architecture is implemented via reports, we need to classify the different types of reports and note which communication paths will carry which types of reports.

 Nimrod Documentation Page
The Nimrod architecture is designed to accommodate a dynamic internetwork of arbitrary size with heterogeneous service requirements and restrictions and to admit incremental deployment throughout an internetwork.
The software architecture must make it straight forward for the vendors to move Nimrod code to their often proprietary environments, possibly by porting code from a reference implementation or by developing code directly from the Nimrod Functional Specification.
Nimrod is a project which aims, in part, to produce a next-generation routing architecture for the Internet; but also, more generally, to try and produce a basic design for routing in a single global-scale communication substrate, a design which will prove sufficiently flexible and powerful to serve into a future as yet unforseeable.

Atkinson Standards Track [Page 4] RFC 1825 Security Architecture for IP August 1995 If there are no security gateways present in the connection, then two end systems that implement ESP may also use it to encrypt only the user data (e.g., TCP or UDP) being carried between the two systems.
The increased latency is primarily due to the calculation of the authentication data by the sender and the calculation and comparison of the authentication data by each receiver for each IP datagram containing an Authentication Header (AH).

The main contribution lies in the description and analysis of interconnect architectures that utilize OTDM to achieve a level performance that is beyond electronic means.
Our results show that the decoupled architecture performs better than associating the NLS predictors with the cache line, that the NLS architecture benefits from reduced cache miss rates and it is particularly effective for programs containing many branches.
Our results show that both (single-threaded) superscalar and fine-grain multithreaded architectures are limited in their ability to utilize the resources of a wide-issue processor.

 What is Style?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A central aspect of architectural design is the use of recurring organizational patterns and idioms- or architectural styles.
Such analyses might not be meaningful for an arbitrary, ad hoc architecture - or even one constructed in a different style.
Sixth, it is usually possible to provide style-specific visualizations: this makes it possible to provide graphical and textual renderings that match engineers' domain-specific intuitions about how their designs should be depicted.

22nd Annual Symposium on Computer Architecture %D June 1995 %P 106-116 %X Crossbar switches are rarely considered for large, scalable multiprocessor interconnect systems because they require O(n^2) switching elements, are difficult to control efficiently and are hard to implement once their size becomes too large to fit on one integrated circuit.
However these problems are technology dependent and a recent innovation in fiber optic devices has led to a new implementation of crossbar switches that does not share these problems while retaining the full advantages of a crossbar switch: low latency, high throughput, complete connectivity and multicast capability.

The first is the set of administrative requirements for obtaining and allocating IPv6 addresses; the second is the technical aspect of such assignments, having largely to do with routing, both within a routing domain (intra-domain routing) and between routing domains (inter-domain routing).
Such `multi-homed' routing domains may, for example, consist of single-site campuses and companies which are attached to multiple backbones, large organizations which are attached to different providers at different locations in the same country, or multi-national organizations which are attached to backbones in a variety of countries worldwide.
Let's also assume that the total number of organizations involved in the widget group is small enough that it is reasonable to maintain a routing table containing one entry per organization, but that they are distributed throughout a larger internet with many millions of (mostly not widget-associated) routing domains.
