  • Conclusions and Reflections: Emergent Models

    Whittaker, David; Cole, RE (2006)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Interprets the findings of the individual contributors, highlighting the emergence of a 'reformed' (large firm) model of innovation, a nascent small firm model, and hence a possible 'dual' innovation system.

  • Marginalisation: A Case Study: Confinement

    McIntosh, Tracey (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Histories of confinement are not just histories of incarceration and internment. Māori and other indigenous peoples have experienced other types of confinement in colonial and post-colonial settings. I draw to attention the expereince of imprisoned young Maori women and their social location to illustrate the way that disadvantage is reproduced and accumulated so that prison life becomes negatively but normatively accepted. In looking at the broader literature both nationally and internationally I hope to bring attention to both the experience of marginalisation and some of the consequences and research issues that this type of scholarship produces.

  • Use of waste powder coatings as binders for the manufacture of composite materials.

    Abyhankar, AC; Edmonds, Neil; Easteal, AJ (2007)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Powder coatings are 100% solid dry powders that are used to coat a wide variety of substrates. They are considered an environmentally friendly coating option with no volatile emissions and minimal overspray wastage. Fines (5% of the powder manufactured) that are not fit for application are also generated during production. Reworking them into usable powder is a costly and cumbersome process and hence they are not reclaimed. For this study three powder coating thermosetting powders were selected. Composites were made by using waste powder coating powders (WPCP) and fines as a primary binder, along with secondary binders and sawdust as the reinforcing material. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were used to characterise composite boards formed using compressive moulding. The composite boards resemble particle boards and were tested for their mechanical properties according to the prescribed standard (AS/NZS 1895.1:2004 for Reconstituted Wood Based Panels). All results confirmed that the composite boards had mechanical performances comparable with conventional commercial boards. As they are constructed wholly from industrial waste materials these particle boards are novel products, and commercialization of this industrial ecological product is envisioned.

  • 1:1 Modelling and Fabrication Studios

    RIEGER, U (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    This paper will introduce the concept of the Model of first Order as an investigation and communication tool for the architectural design process. It will address the principles of parallel thinking in architecture and the relationship between concept and result. Additional examples will show how this tool has been applied in design studios and large scale fabrication studios at the School of Architecture and Planning.

  • The Seven 'C's: The role of the Planning studio in educating for the future

    Aitken Rose, Elizabeth; Higgins, M; Kabzamalova, E; Dixon, J (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The role of the planning studio is coming under increasing scrutiny as a tool for teaching and learning. Major shifts in tertiary education and professional practice are taking place that have major implications for the future of studio. The convergence of these shifts and their outcomes raise important issues and questions about the on-going rationale for studio and its utility as a teaching and learning method in the future.

  • Interdisciplinary Teaching and its Affect on Assessment

    Speers, James (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Art is described as a subjective game that requires inventive behavior. At the same time however, it is also understood to depend on processes of shared agreement (Ross 1982). This paper is concerned with the ways in which assessment processes might themselves provide a model of this understanding. My interest lies in whether assessment is able to provide students with the opportunity to practice the dual skills of invention and recognition. My paper will report on, and analyse the experiences of students in relation to assessment. It will also consider how interdisciplinary teaching methods can provide opportunities for enhanced feedback to students in the learning environment. Lastly, I will reflect on the importance of the subjective/ discursive model described by Ross above as a necessary structure for interdisciplinary teaching and beyond this, as a fundamental dimension of education and the wider social world itself.

  • From Plato to plaid

    Shand, Peter (2008)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    In the late 1980s, Chris and Helen Cherry’s fashion label Workshop occupied a small store on the southern corner of the Century Arcade and central Auckland’s High Street. As well as what were their trademark coloured denim and linen garments, stock included tee-shirts with screened images of episodes from Giotto’s Scrovegni Chapel, overlain with spidery Batman forms, dense rubbery doily patterns and simple, one-word texts in a quick, easy hand. Twenty years on, Swanndri, the iconic manufacturer of good keen bloke-wear, operates a fl agship store in Nuffi eld Street in Newmarket. The Karen Walker range designed for the label includes tee-shirts where the bushwear’s recognisable check is rendered as if in softer palette oil pastel and with a knowing, cheeky nod to the checkered patterning of both Swanndri and the global fashion phenomenon Burberry.

  • Agent-based models: because they're worth it?

    O'Sullivan, David; Millington, JDA; Perry, George; Wainwright, J (2012)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    We address the question of when the relative complicatedness of spatial agent-based models (ABMs) compared to alternative modelling approaches can be justifi ed. The spectrum of ABM types from simple, abstract models to complicated models aspiring to realism makes a single answer impossible. Therefore we focus on identifying circumstances where the advantages of ABMs outweigh the additional effort involved. We fi rst recall the reasons for building any model: to simplify the phenomena at hand to improve understanding. Thus, the representational detail of ABMs may not always be desirable. We suggest that critical aspects of the phenomena of interest that help us to assess the likely usefulness of ABMs are the nature of the decisions which actors make, and how their decisions relate to the spatio-temporal grain and extent of the system. More specifi cally, the heterogeneity of the decision-making context of actors, the importance of interaction effects, and the overall size and organization of the system must be considered. We conclude by suggesting that there are good grounds based on our discussion for ABMs to become a widely used approach in understanding many spatial systems.
