Urban Ethics in the Anthropocene The Moral Dimensions of Six Emerging Conditions in Contemporary Urbanism

Urban Ethics in the Anthropocene: The Moral Dimensions of Six Emerging Conditions in Contemporary Urbanism by Jeffrey K.H. Chan
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 175 Pages | ISBN : 981130307X | 2.42 MB
Increasingly, we live in an environment of our own making: a 'world as design' over the natural world. For more than half of the global population, this environment is also thoroughly urban. But what does a global urban condition mean for the human condition? How does the design of the city and the urban process, in response to the issues and challenges of the Anthropocene, produce new ethical categories, shape new moral identities and relations, and bring about consequences that are also morally significant? In other words, how does the urban shape the ethical-and in what ways? Conversely, how can ethics reveal relations and realities of the urban that often go unnoticed? This book marks the first systematic study of the city through the ethical perspective in the context of the Anthropocene. Six emergent urban conditions are examined, namely, precarity, propinquity, conflict, serendipity, fear and the urban commons.

Beyond Modernist Masters Contemporary Architecture in Latin America

Beyond Modernist Masters: Contemporary Architecture in Latin America By Felipe Hernandez
English | PDF | 2010 | 149 Page | ISBN : 3764387696 | 39.4 MB
Latin America has been an important place for architecture for many decades. Masters like Barragan, Dieste, Lina Bo Bardi, and Niemeyer pointed the way for architectural design all over the world, and they continue to do so today. Their approach to colors, materials, and walls had a deep and lasting influence on architectural modernism. Since then, however - and especially in the last fifteen years - architecture on the continent has continued to evolve, and a lively and extremely creative architecture scene has developed.

Work and Identity: Contemporary Perspectives on Workplace Diversity

Work and Identity: Contemporary Perspectives on Workplace Diversity By Shalene Werth
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 207 Pages | ISBN : 3319739352 | 3.51 MB
This edited volume highlights relevant issues and solutions for diversity groups within the workplace. It explores issues of identity as they relate to attributes of gender, age, migrant labor, disability, and power in social spaces. Identity is rarely well-defined in many social spaces, and understandings that define belonging are often developed through the normative expectations of others. Having an evidence-based approach in addressing these relevant issues, this book will appeal to academics and practitioners alike looking for practical and theoretical solutions to improving the situations of these groups in paid employment.
