This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
This ground-breaking two volume set celebrates South Africa's outstanding landscape architecture projects. Spanning more than 25 years, environmental, cultural, and scientific professional practice projects are documented in full colour. Since 1985, the Institute for Landscape Architects of South Africa (ILASA) has recognised landscape architecture projects worthy of merit awards. The merit award projects are collected here to preserve them as a set of historically significant (and landmark) projects in one consolidated publication, while showcasing the best professional work of South Africa's prominent landscape architects. South African Landscape Architecture: A Compendium presents these key projects which led to the profession becoming a cornerstone of the creation of outdoor space. Moreover, the inspired leadership reflected in these projects has contributed towards cultural and environmental stewardship in South Africa. This retrospective study advances the knowledge of rigourous local practice on an international level and confirms the vital role of quality outdoor public and private spaces. The Compendium publicises the great achievements of South African landscape architects and assists in creating a detailed and comprehensive understanding of the discipline of landscape architecture. It serves as a benchmark for peers and multi-disciplinary design and environmental teams. South African Landscape Architecture: A Reader consists of lengthy theoretical research papers, as well as shorter, focused, and applied research articles presented with full colour illustrations. It is a publication of definitive works by leading researchers in a contemporary method. The academic writings are diverse, supporting the expression of sub-disciplines within a larger context, based on the latest research within the fields of theory, culture, heritage, science, and design.
Virtual Reality, Training's Future?: Proceedings Of A Workshop Sponsored By Nato's Defense Research Group Panel 8, Research Study Group 16 On Advanced Technologies, Applied To Training Design Held Aboard The Hms Nelson, Portsmouth, England, March 7-9, 1995
In 1988, the NATO panel governing human sciences (Panel 8 on Defence Applica- of Human and Bio-Medical Sciences) established a Research Study Group to synthe- tions size information relevant to Advanced Technologies Applied to Training Design. During its first phase, the RSG established an active exchange of information on advanced tech- nologies applied to training design and stimulated much military application of these tech- nologies. With the increased emphasis on training throughout the alliance, Panel 8, during its April 1991 meeting decided to continue with Phase II of this RSG focusing in the area of advanced training technologies that were emerging within the alliance. In order to ac- complish its mission, the RSG held a series of workshops. Leaders in technology and training were brought together and exchanged information on the latest developments in technologies applicable to training and education. This volume represents the last in a se- ries based on the NATO workshops. In Part One, it details findings from the last work- shop, Virtual Reality for Training; and in Part Two, we provide a summary perspective on Virtual Reality and the other emerging technologies previously studied. These include computer-based training, expert systems, authoring systems, cost-effectiveness, and dis- tance learning. It is a natural extension to proceed from learning without boundaries to virtual envi- ronments. From the extended classroom to the individual or team immersion in a distrib- uted, virtual, and collaborative environment is an easy conceptual step.
