Il s’agit de l’Arve et notamment de la Drise. Les experts se disputent sur les racines du mot: On pourrait se contenter de la version de Rabelais: Et les paysans du coin, voyant ce tas grandir sans cesse, s’exclamaient: Des qualificatifs qui voudraient nous faire croire que le mont est inoffensif: Il est rugueux, rocheux, broussailleux. Pour le bien de leurs enfants communs. Rousse, verte, brune, grise, blanche.

Zero – Conventional masonry without visible joints The History of Bricks and Brickmaking Man has used brick for building purpose for thousands of years. Bricks date back to BC, which makes them one of the oldest known building materials. They were discovered in southern Turkey at the site of an ancient settlement around the city of Jericho.
The first bricks, made in areas with warm climates, were mud bricks dried in the sun for hardening. Ancient Egyptian bricks were made of clay mixed with straw. The evidence of this can be seen today at ruins of Harappa Buhen and Mohenjo-daro. Paintings on the tomb walls of Thebes portray Egyptian slaves mixing, tempering and carrying clay for the sun dried bricks.
The greatest breakthrough came with the invention of fired brick in about 3, Bc. From this moment on, bricks could be made without the heat of sun and soon became popular in cooler climates.

Lewis and Frank Gehry have had a long professional and personal career dating back to Lewis’ commissioning Gehry to design his home, which was never built. The long design process for the unbuilt home is credited with having helped many of the design advances that would lead to Gehry’s design of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
Like in Bilbao, here Gehry makes use of the undulating forms that have now become his signature. For Lewis and the school, Gehry’s curves and shapes signify the manner in which management and business is taught at Case Western.
Le Technoparc. Le Technoparc is a Business Park created in , with the intention to facilitate the economic diversification of the city. It occupies about 66 acres on the northeast of PSA Peugeot Citroën factory, bordering the neighbouring commune Achères.
Because his father, Alexander Stirling Calder, received public commissions, the family traversed the country throughout Calder’s childhood. Calder was encouraged to create, and from the age of eight he always had his own workshop wherever the family lived. For Christmas in , Calder presented his parents with two of his first sculptures, a tiny dog and duck cut from a brass sheet and bent into formation. The duck is kinetic—it rocks back and forth when tapped. Even at age eleven, his facility in handling materials was apparent.
Despite his talents, Calder did not originally set out to become an artist. He instead enrolled at the Stevens Institute of Technology after high school and graduated in with an engineering degree. Calder worked for several years after graduation at various jobs, including as a hydraulics and automotive engineer, timekeeper in a logging camp, and fireman in a ship’s boiler room.
While serving in the latter occupation, on a ship from New York bound for San Francisco, Calder awoke on the deck to see both a brilliant sunrise and a scintillating full moon; each was visible on opposite horizons the ship then lay off the Guatemalan coast.

Prehistory[ edit ] The earliest traces of human settlements come from the end of the Mesolithic period — BC in shelter in the Col des Roches. The shelter was discovered in by a customs official and was the first site of its kind studied in Switzerland. The heavily wooded portion of the Jura Mountains around Le Locle, were cleared by colonists who later received the status of free peasants. These first free farmers received a charter in which codified their rights and freedoms.
At the beginning of the 15th century, this charter was reconfirmed during the foundation of the Mairie or town government. The inhabitants of Le Locle were given the right to own land that they had cleared, as long as they continued to farm it and paid taxes on it.
Even the father of Modernism, Le Corbusier, is a bit of a Frenchman himself, even though he was born in north-western Switzerland (but still only 5 km away from the .
But even in recent decades, as other institutions pulled in crowds, the Harvard art collections had a somewhat secluded feel. All that will change on November 16, when Harvard opens an ambitious renovation and expansion by Italian architect Renzo Piano. It adds 40 percent more exhibition space as well as a seat theater, classrooms, and study and conservation centers. Lofty galleries will accommodate overscale contemporary works, with an area reserved for digital displays.
The Harvard commission was not without its hurdles, in terms of both design and function. This startling concrete form, which has won both admiration and loathing, is wedged onto a site so narrow that it looms within 20 feet of the museum building. The museum stands just outside Harvard Yard, the group of quadrangles composing the historic core of the university founded in Piano has extended the northeastern end of the ramp with a gray granite-encased segment so that it connects the Carpenter Center with the art-museum complex.
The Carpenter Center is a jewel. Architectural historian William J.

Lightweight and quiet, with the motor housed in the handle for improved ergonomics, it works beautifully. Best of all is its clean, minimal form. Jasper Morrison Designer of the year After a full 30 years of service, British designer Jasper Morrison is perhaps more influential than ever, with his emphasis on functionality and clarity of purpose adopted as an industry-wide mission statement. The tough, faceted concrete looks as if it has just landed on this grassy meadow, but its appearance belies a clever structural arrangement that treats the home like a bridge over the landscape, allowing rainwater to flow harmlessly underneath.
An open-plan central living space is bookended by three bedrooms and a terrace. Designed to nestle as close as 5in to the projection screen, it can still throw out an impressive 60in-wide picture.

Performing Arts, Theater and Dance Benna has a degree in Theater and has worked as an actor, director, production designer and stage manager. She studied bel canto voice in Miami and classical and contemporary dance forms at professional studios in New York and Florida with specific training in ballet, tap, contemporary, modern, theater, jazz, and indigenous traditional dance forms.
Her work as a writer and publicist for major performing arts organizations, and as a print and broadcast journalist covering performing arts, includes interviews with celebrated film directors and contemporary artists of every discipline. Crafts In the highlands of Central America, Benna learned to work a backstrap loom from local weavers. She continues to weave on a handmade frame loom and to collect indigenous textiles in her travels.
Currently, she is a passionate minimalist, but she also loves salvage and re-purposing, painting — the best way to personalize a new home — layering textiles, and juxtaposing design periods. Education Benna is a certified Montessori teacher and has taught preschool through community college classes, with a focus on early childhood education, humanities, field science and John Holt-inspired unschooling. In college, she partnered with a Harvard researcher to develop a drama therapy program for emotionally disturbed young children.
She has also trained executives and government officials in public speaking and media appearances. Her interests in an active lifestyle encompass Scuba diving, tennis, horseback riding, yacht racing, recreational cycling, running, hiking, cross-country skiing, and modified vegetarian to vegan diets. Body Art Tattoos and other forms of body art have always fascinated Benna, from her days designing and applying elaborate theatrical make-up in children’s theater and adult productions, to her extensive research into the symbolism of tattoos.

Unless it’s stipulated in a lease, or they live in a student flat. In which case, greasy nylon carpet tiles, especially in the kitchen, are the norm. For me, to have carpet would be like dating outside my species.
From until , Rio de Janeiro was Brazil’s capital. At this time, resources tended to be centered in Brazil’s southeast region near Rio de Janeiro and most of its population was concentrated near to the Atlantic Coast. An article of the country’s first republican constitution dating back to stated the capital should be moved from Rio de Janeiro to a place close to the country’s center. The bill was not enacted because Pedro I dissolved the Assembly.
Costa’s plan was not as detailed as some of the plans presented by other architects and city planners. It did not include land use schedules, models, population charts or mechanical drawings, however, it was chosen by five out of six jurors because it had the features required to align the growth of a capital city  Even though the initial plan was transformed over time, his plan oriented much of the construction and most of its features survived.
The Monumental Axis designated for political and administrative activities is considered the body of the city with the style and simplicity of its buildings, its oversized scales, broad vistas and heights, producing the idea of Monumentality. This axis includes ministries, the national congress, and the television and radio tower. Costa attempted to introduce a Brazil that was more equitable, he also designed housing for the working classes that was separated from the upper and middle-class housing and was visually different, with the intention of avoiding slums favelas in the urban periphery.
This emphasis of the plan on automobiles caused the lengthening of distances between centers and it attended only the necessities of a small segment of the population who owned cars. Costa’s Plan is seen as a plan with a sectoral tendency, segregating all the banks, the office buildings, and the amusement center.
