    Controlled demolitons of buildings, bridges, factories etc. Additional information: In the controlled demolition industry, building implosion is the strategic placing of explosive material and timing of its detonation so that a structure collapses on itself in a matter of seconds, minimizing the physical damage to its immediate surroundings. Despite its terminology, building implosion also includes the controlled demolition of other structures, such as bridges, smokestacks, towers, and tunnels. Building implosion (which reduces to seconds a process which could take months or years to achieve by other methods) typically occurs in urban areas and often involves large landmark structures.

  • Buildings, Spaces and Societies: Manorial Sites in Normandy, ca 1050-1200

    This paper focuses on the interpretation of space at manorial sites in Normandy from the central middle ages, and what spatial analysis can provide to a social meaning of a building. Focusing on research undertaken at manorial sites in Calvados, this paper suggests that considering spatial aspects of medieval buildings provides a heightened awareness to the society using these places, particularly in examining the ways in which social authority would be embodied or enacted through the material trappings as well as the spatial indications of the buildings. The main sites under examination include the Motte d’Olivet (Decaëns 1981, 1987, 1988), Chateau de Creully (Impey 1993, 1995, 2012) and Beaumont-le-Richard (Impey 1993, 1999).

From a strange tomb to a place where aliens may be kept to the secret HQ of lego to some weird places in North Korea...these are 7 SECRET Buildings You Can't Visit. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com The Skull and Bones is a secret society of Yale University undergraduates, with famous alumnus including politicians, lawmakers, members of the Rockefeller family, and three former US presidents including George W Bush. The organisation's headquarters, known as the Tomb, are thought to contain some astonishing and shocking artefacts such as stolen coffins where sex acts take place, a set of Hitler's silverware, and the skulls of several famous historical figures. Frat parties at the Tomb sound pretty bad-ass. Hangar 18 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio is a major source of conspiracy theories regarding alien spacecraft, but the only thing we know for certain about this mysterious building is that inside some form of aviation technology research is taking place, and it's something the military does not want the world to know about. Because some of the entries on this list are a little heavy we're gonna lighten things up just briefly with a look at Lego's design headquarters in Billund, Denmark. Whereas the main Lego HQ is located in a huge building with a giant Lego brick planted out front, their secretive design headquarters is actually based in a nearby two-storey office block with no apparent signage or branding. Inside this building a small room of operations is located where only a chosen few of Lego's 3000 local employees have ever set foot. Pyongyang North Korea, 1987. Construction begins on the Ryugyong Hotel, a project intended to show the world just how powerful and glorious the North Korean regime is. Cut to 2016, and the hotel is still not finished nearly 30 years later, making it the Half Life three of construction projects. Bureau 39 is another North Korean secret location, but this time we have no confirmed pictures of the building, because this is the site of some extremely shady goings on. Bureau 39 is reportedly where Kim Jong Un's Korean Workers Party orchestrates and executes various illegal activities which take place across the globe, and the CIA estimate that the operations conducted within this one building are responsible for counterfeit US currency production, illegal weapons sales, narcotic production and distribution, and an international insurance fraud scheme, all of which rake in between five hundred million and one billion dollars per year. It's three in a row for North Korea as in 2015 this ominously designed building was opened - the North Korean Science and Technology Complex known as Ssuk Islet. See how it's shaped like a giant atom? Like something a super-villain would do to his super-secret volcano base? That can't be good, that can't be good at all. Construction began in 2014 but Kim Jong Un wanted it built quicker than that. Built in 1994 Vauxhall Cross is one of London's most iconic buildings, and as well as being the place James Bond gets a paycheck it is also the real-life home of Britain's SIS and MI6 intelligence services.

This paper focuses on the interpretation of space at manorial sites in Normandy from the central middle ages, and what spatial analysis can provide to a social meaning of a building. Focusing on research undertaken at manorial sites in Calvados, this paper suggests that considering spatial aspects of medieval buildings provides a heightened awareness to the society using these places, particularly in examining the ways in which social authority would be embodied or enacted through the material trappings as well as the spatial indications of the buildings. The main sites under examination include the Motte d’Olivet (Decaëns 1981, 1987, 1988), Chateau de Creully (Impey 1993, 1995, 2012) and Beaumont-le-Richard (Impey 1993, 1999). As a result of the spatial examination, this paper will also seek to interpret the Motte d’Olivet within a broader context of landscape considerations and a contextualized view of the place and its owners. Parallels to English sites such as Goltho (Beresford 1987, Stocker 1989) and Boothby Pagnell (Neck et al. 1992, Blair 1993) will be drawn to demonstrate potential consistencies or contradictions to a cross-Channel society. This paper will ultimately demonstrate the varying applicability of spatial analysis in considering social interpretations of buildings particularly for interdisciplinary studies of buildings and societies. This is seen through the Norman and English case studies of the paper, in seeking to discern aspects of the relationships between these intertwined societies of the central middle ages. Overall the paper will demonstrate that the utilization of spatial analysis can be used not only to deepen an understanding of society and their buildings, such as those in Calvados in a period of cultural exchange, domination, and altering views of authority, but also that the use of this method can further illuminate aspects of space and society by using a different lens to view the Norman worlds of the central middle ages.

"Net Zero Buildings in San Diego: The New Model for our Built Environment" Date: Wednesday May 13, 2015 Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Location: World Resources Simulation Center 1088 Third Ave San Diego, CA 92101 Event Summary: A zero energy bill every month for your electricity? The concept is compelling...and feasible. Net Zero Energy Buildings are buildings that produce as much (clean) energy as they use over the course of a year, through a combination of: Exemplary building design to minimize energy requirements, and Renewable energy systems that meet these reduced needs Under California's recent revisions to Title 24 (the state's energy code aimed at reducing energy use in new and altered homes and commercial buildings), all new residential construction is to be Zero Net Energy (ZNE) by 2020 with all new commercial buildings achieving ZNE by 2030. The code also applies to retrofit projects that pass certain thresholds. These changes promise to reshape the construction industry in significant ways. In this month's 100% Renewable San Diego event, experts will share with us their experiences in building clean buildings and provide knowledge on how to move towards making your home, office, store or other building Net Zero.
