ABSTRACT

Of the many sculptures on the facades of cathedrals and churches all over France, the curious Head-carriers, also known as Cephalophores, are arguably some of the most thought-provoking sculptural pieces one will come across. This study is concerned mainly with the iconography of St Denis, the first Bishop of France, as articulated on the portals of the Basilica of St-Denis. The events that followed immediately after Denis’ martyrdom by decapitation is mostly regarded as mere fable. Consequently, the symbolic meaning of the unusual movement has evaded scholarship. This work will discuss the symbolism of the Head-carriers and the meaning it gives to the architectural space of the Basilica of St Denis. This study argues that the emblematic ideology behind the sublime interaction between the living and the dead in the Basilica of St Denis, epitomised by the statue of the martyr, is a visual representation of a central message in Christianity which presents death, not as the end, but as a transitory and glorious beginning of oneness with Christ. Through critical visual analysis and metaphysical discussions, the study places Gothic art and architecture in the centre of the enunciation of 16th century Christian doctrine.

Keywords: St Denis, Cephalophore, Iconography, Gothic Art, Gothic Architecture, Symbolism.

ABSTRACT

Meyer et al. stated that personal qualities and abilities continually shift, and they exist not within the individual but in the intersection between the individual and their environment, in a vast, complex, ever-changing dynamic balance. The current study aims to investigate current regulations in the country related to constructing universities and also refer to related studies and framework, by using qualitative analysis, synthesis and inductive methods. The study results suggest that physical structures of universities and environment affecting much on learning spirit of learners. And finally authors suggest that Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing flexible instructional environments and proactively integrating supports that address learner variability and we need to follow Vietnamese standards - TCVN 3981:1985 on design of university lecture halls.
Keywords: UDL framework, TCVN, Lecture hall, Design, University.

ABSTRACT

On the basis of experiences in designing, planning and constructing industrial zones in Vietnam, this paper aimed to give some suggestions and regulations for designing. The study used the qualititative method with synthesis and explanatory methods. Resources usage and environmental protection are more effective, while maximal economic and social benefits are simultaneously targeted. A concept of developing eco-industrial parks has established and evolved through time, and planning and constructing industrial zones based on current regulations in the nation. As a result, researches stated that  we need to pay attention to network cloud service, big data service and investment management and meet some standards such as 100% of newly built industrial clusters have wastewater treatment stations that meet relevant national standards or technical regulations, etc. as well as certain principles such as 3R (Recycle, Reduce, Reuse). Operation  services  should include:  cloud-based  service  operation providing  basic  cloud  rental  services, such  as  cloud  hosting, cloud desktop, cloud disk, virtual data center, container services, collaborative development and Open API;  SaaS  Operation  Service;  APP  Store;  and  space  operation  service  to  make  full  use  of  digital showrooms  and  free  space  resources,  providing  reservation  and rental  services,  and  demonstration services.
Keywords: Eco-Industrial Parks, Experiences, Designing and Constructing

ABSTRACT

The main goal of this research was to compile the design framework of Sangalj neighborhood inside Tehran, Iran using the revitalization approach. The research method of this research is descriptive-analytical in terms of the theoretical-applicative goal and in terms of the field method. To collect the required information and data, document reviews, library studies, and field studies are used, and the tools needed to collect and analyze information are questionnaires, interviews, field observations and observations, information and documents of extra-hand plans. and satellite images. In the analysis and evaluation section, considering that each of the extracted indicators do not have the same importance for the revitalization of urban spaces; Therefore, it is necessary to measure their importance relative to each other and finally apply this measurement in the context of Sangalaj neighborhood. After identifying and investigating a passage in the neighborhood, analyzing each building and passages and its constituent parts, presenting its policies and strategies with the possibility of desirable revitalization based on the social, cultural, economic, physical structure, and attracting participation People can re-realize the historical identity of Sangalj neighborhood and achieve a sustainable development in the direction of a lively neighborhood by preserving its historical identity.
