Meet The “invisible” Laptop Stand That Raised $1 Million / Boing Boing

Roman cities were crowded and it was necessary to address the issue of housing the urban population and maintaining order. War has had a devastating effect, in the destruction of fortresses, and in the indiscriminate bombings of cities. International bodies such as the U N and UNESCO increasingly take this cultural destruction seriously, but sadly there remains little they seem able to do to stop it happening, other than the threat of legal retribution after the event. I know it happened in the past and we have been responsible for some of it but most of the time there was at least an understandable reason for it. What happened in the past cannot be undone. On a more material basis, the mortuary complexes exceeded those of the past in mastery and skill, becoming larger and more beautiful, with added elements such as terraced ambulatories and galleries. It is only our past which can bind us to all of the humanity that has ever existed, the diverse societies and the ordinary people, as well as the great civilisation shaping events of history.

Miami Beach is a great place to visit. The Great Colonnade (an avenue of Roman pillars) and the agora (market place) have also survived largely intact. There’s no better place than Santa Fe, New Mexico to see how this remarkable building style has developed since the pioneer days. Fabricators, manufacturers, and craftsman woodworkers have found better ways to develop architectural accents that are maintenance free. His pictures ask questions while describing in ways that words can never hope to, the infinite poetry of existence. We only have two tangible ways to remember these people and these events. A student may receive two degrees concurrently from the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts. Architecture is the mother of all arts. Seidler is the single most prolific designer of modernist architecture in Australia. By the time you get into infrastructure design and architecture, “high concurrency” is just a single facet within a broad scope of requirements and considerations. Every time an ancient building is destroyed, the last bond with a human being who lived and worked on it hundreds or thousands of years ago is gone.

Great hub, Alun. This was so deep and in depth on how far ISIL would go to destroy humankind and ancient buildings in its way. Along with preserving and conserving its ancient architectural wonders, architects, Edinburgh have are adept at constructing some of the most architecturally astounding buildings for the modern and contemporary part of the great city. Dubai is now one of the Fastest Growing Tourist Destinations in the World, having completely metamorphosed from a sleepy fishing town to a modern tourist, shopping and business destination. I hope that one day, Palmyra will be restored as closely as possible to its pre-2014 status. One must hope that the situation in Iraq and Syria eventually resolves satisfactorily. It is a horribly intolerant organisation – one of the most intolerant in history. Every time a piece of history is lost to us, our culture is diminished. And at the time of writing, ISIL are under pressure in Mosul, Iraq’s second city. This content has been generated by GSA Content Generator DEMO!

I pray that we can eliminate ISIL before they do any more damage to our world history! I feel sick to the stomach when I see all this wanton destruction around the world. Finally there is wanton neglect. There has also been non-religious ideology – attempts by a new regime to impose their own philosophy on a society. I don’t understand any of their philosophy and it’s contemptible that they tortured and murdered a man for just looking after it and refusing to give them information so that they could destroy more. The second, more concrete link to the people who lived long ago are the buildings, the sculptures and the wall carvings which have survived and come down to us over the millenia. Other sites have been damaged, and statues and sculptures in the Palmyra Museum have been broken up. In March 2016, Palmyra was liberated by the Syrian army.

Importance of interior designing of offices, restaurants and houses cannot be denied even for a second. Appreciated. It is indeed shocking just how many buildings of historic, aesthetic or symbolic importance have been lost. Syria’s Director of Antiquities has pledged to reconstruct the demolished buildings using the rubble still at the site. And it was quite depressing when researching this article to read of these buildings – buildings which no one in the future will ever have the opportunity to see. Sites are often known by more than one name, either due to name changes over time, or due to the difficulty of translating Arabic script to the alpabet of Western Europe and America. All six UNESCO World Heriatge sites in Syria have been damaged, including Aleppo, the site of many archaeological treasures and the focus of current fighting. It seems in their world no alternative point of view can be permitted.
