Edited By Van Duin, Leen; Cavallo, Roberto; Claessens, Francois and Engel, Hank
With the publication of "The Urban Project", containing the results of the preceding conference, the editors hope to reach a wide audience by sharing the fruitful output of ideas, thoughts and discussions presented there. The experiences summarized in this book are particularly significant to everybody involved in design, building, thinking and managing the urban scene. The conference focused mainly on the field of tension between science, technology and art. The scope can be grouped into three major themes: research by design - design studies that investigate the spatial potential for transformation and renewal of specific urban sites by means of concrete projects; understanding urban and metropolitan form - analytical studies that investigate aspects of form and matter of urban and metropolitan areas together with the dynamics of its transformation; and, research, design and education - experiments and experiences with 'research driven education' in the fields of architectural an urban design, relating urban analysis and architectural design. 455pp.

Newly revised and updated in 2008 with additional photographs and an easier-to-use layout, this beautifully illustrated guide aids in identifying the most common intertidal animals and plants of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. What's that purple stuff you and the kids always see at the edge of the water when you go to the beach? Is it okay to touch those gooey little creatures you always find in tidepools? And where's the best place along the coast to see bat stars? This book can tell you. The 274 most common animals and plants to be seen along the saltwater shores of the Pacific Northwest are described here - the ones that stay put and that cover great distances; the ones that hide and that love a party; and, the ones that look like rocks or feathers or blobs of jelly. Illustrating each entry is a full-colour photo of the species in its natural habitat, so that even the novice can identify it confidently - without disturbing it.There are special sections on great Pacific Northwest viewing sites for intertidal life, ways to understand tides and choose the best times to look for beach wildlife, intertidal habitats ranging from sandy beaches to ageing wharves to rocky, wave-swept shores, and ecologically friendly observation methods. Packed with expert information but wonderfully accessible to any interested layperson, this book is perfect for a family, a school group, a Saturday beachwalker or a naturalists' club. The species described here include sponges, clams, snails, crabs, sea stars, sea anemones, jellies, fishes, seaweeds and others. This informative guide was written to be both accurate and easy to understand. Details for each plant or animal include: description, habitat, range, additional notes and more.224pp.
