This chapter presents an analysis of adaptations of machiya, traditional Japanese townhouses, in Kyoto. The study aims to develop models for future reuse of machiya that combine contemporary lifestyles and traditional characteristics, in order to present possibilities for the preservation of machiya. The models for reuse are based on an...

The work of architect Gerrit Th. Rietveld (1888 – 1964) is appreciated throughout the world. Many of the well-known buildings he designed have survived to the present. Some have been restored or refurbished, depending on the condition of the building, current needs of the building users, etc. Rietveld himself had a very clear vision about...

In this paper, we address the registration of two images as an optimization problem within indicated bounds. Our contribution is to identify such situations where the optimum value represents the real transformation parameters between the two images. Consider for example Mean Square Error (MSE) as the energy function: Ideally, a minimum in MSE...

Much of our industrial heritage lost its function in the transition from an industrial to a more service-based economy. Meantime, changing consumer preferences have shortened the functional and economic life cycle of buildings to such an extent that many have become vacant and obsolete. Developers tend to prefer to demolish such buildings and...

In the study 'Offices for Living in', published in CIB W104 Open Building Implementation, Mexico 2002, an instrument was developed for measuring the potential of transforming (soon-to-be) empty office premises into homes. As a follow-up, this survey 'Good Buildings Drive out Bad Buildings' looks explicitly at the lower end of the office premises...

Building owners and other stakeholders can adopt different strategies to cope with vacancy, such as consolidation, rent reduction, selling the building, renovation, transfor-mation and conversion to adapted reuse, or demolish and build a new building. This paper dis-cusses a new developed tool to cope with vacancy by adaptive reuse. It presents...

In the Netherlands, both the office market and housing market show a mismatch between supply and demand, quantitatively and qualitatively. In 2007 almost 14% of all offices are vacant, i.e. 5.9 million square meters. At the same time we see a shortage of about 1 million dwellings. A building must be able to be changed over its life cycle to...

Office buildings are experiencing vacancy. This leads to financial problems for the owners and social problems for the community, e.g. vandalism and deterioration. A solution may be found in transformation of vacant buildings and changing the buildings’ program. In the Dutch situation, housing is a valid function, given the tight market. Housing...

IT-induced public sector transformation investigates the organizational changes that are undertaken to transform public administrations using information technology (IT). While IT made governments more efficient, it is unclear whether it will also make them more effective in creating public value for citizens and businesses. This study...

Office building vacancy is becoming an increasingly visible part of the cityscape. Billboards shout “for rent” and office locations look abandoned even in the middle of the day. Still, new office buildings and locations are being developed, adding up to the built environment. As hardly any office buildings are demolished, adapted or transformed,...

Polymorphism is frequently encountered in many pharmaceutical, chemical, and food products. Polymorphs have the same chemical composition but different crystal structures, and therefore differ in their physicochemical properties such as stability, solubility, and bioavailability. These property differences can influence the product performance....

The research focuses on the transformation of the urban block in relation to the public realm of the two great Dutch cities Amsterdam and Rotterdam throughout the last 400 years. In order to analyse the process of transformation, Dutch urban blocks are selected that can be considered paradigmatic for different historical periods . The time span...

Many seismic data processing and imaging processes require densely and regularly sampled data, whereas the actual measurements are mostly irregularly and sparsely sampled. Therefore, seismic data reconstruction methods are utilised as a pre-processing step. Within the class of transformation-based reconstruction techniques, observed seismic data...

Among all the process steps of the production of aluminium extrusion products, the homogenisation of Al-Mg-Si aluminium billets is a very important one, since it gives significant changes in the microstructure of the alloy, leading to an improved extrudability of the material and improved properties of the final extruded product. During this...
