About this Item: North Point Press; Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York, 2002. Paperback. Condition: Fine. 1st. 193 pp.; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. "A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and practice of manufacture and environmentalism. 'Reduce, reuse, recycle' urge environmentalists in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. As William McDonough and Michael Braungart argue in their provocative, visionary book, however, this approach perpetuates a one-way, 'cradle to grave' manufacturing model that dates to the Industrial Revolution and casts off as much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste, much of it toxic. Why not challenge the notion that human industry must inevitably damage the natural world, they ask. In fact, why not take nature itself as our model? A tree produces thousands of blossoms in order to create another tree, yet we do not consider its abundance wasteful but safe, beautiful, and highly effective hence, 'waste equals food' is the first principle the book sets forth. Products might be designed so that, after their useful life, they provide nourishment for something new-either as 'biological nutrients' that safely re-enter the environment or as 'technical nutrients' that circulate within closed-loop industrial cycles, without being 'downcycled' into low-grade uses (as most 'recyclables' now are). Elaborating their principles from experience (re)designing everything from carpeting to corporate campuses, the authors make an exciting and viable case for change. / William McDonough is an architect and the founding principal of William McDonough + Partners, Architecture and Community Design, based in Charlottesville, Virginia. From 1994 to 1999 he served as dean of the school of architecture at the University of Virginia. In 1999 Time magazine recognized him as a 'Hero for the Planet,' stating that 'his utopianism is grounded in a unified philosophy that--in demonstrable and practical ways--is changing the design of the world.' In 1996, he received the Presidential Award for Sustainable Development, the highest environmental honor given by United States. Michael Braungart is a chemist and the founder of the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA) in Hamburg, Germany. Prior to starting EPEA, he was the director of the chemistry section for Greenpeace. Since 1984 he has been lecturing at universities, businesses, and institutions around the world on critical new concepts for ecological chemistry and materials flow management. Dr. Braungart is the recipient of numerous honors, awards, and fellowships from the Heinz Endowment, the W. Alton Jones Foundation, and other organizations. In 1995 the authors created McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, a product and systems development firm assisting client companies in implementing their unique sustaining design protocol. Their clients include Ford Motor Company, Nike, Herman Miller, BASF, DesignTex, Pendleton, Volvo, and the city of Chicago." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible.

About this Item: Alfred A. Knopf; A Borzoi Book, New York, 1993. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. xvi, 347 pp., illus., index; 25 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Remainder mark/top edge. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "For more than half a century, Peter Blake has lived in the mainstream of contemporary architecture and art. As writer, magazine editor, critic, and practicing architect, he has numbered among his friends and acquaintances (and occasionally enemies) virtually all of the major figures of modern architecture, and a good many famous artists as well. In this crisp and lively memoir, he brings them - and the time he shared with them - vividly and memorably to life. The anecdotes are memorable. Here is Frank Lloyd Wright (regarded by Blake as a perfect example of "the Artist as Ham," though he greatly admired his buildings) exploding at the discovery of young Blake's savage review of his Autobiography . Bertrand Russell trying to escape visitors by hiding up a tree in Pennsylvania, as he calmly puffs away on his pipe . Buckminster Fuller tap-dancing on a drafting table to demonstrate the metrical affinity between bebop and a new mathematical system he is working on . Mies van der Rohe at work, stolidly gazing at a model of an ITT building while assistants scurry around making alterations . Marcel Breuer telling how he invented his famous chair . Philip Johnson delightedly answering a solemn question about heat loss from a visitor to his glass house: "The heat loss is absolutely tremendous"--And beaming from ear to ear. But No Place Like Utopia also has a deeper theme: how modern architecture, born and raised between the wars and after with a strong sense of social and political idealism, in the 1960s gradually fell back into its ancient role as an elitist pursuit dedicated to flattering the rich and powerful. Only now, as Blake makes clear, can we see the beginnings of a return to its original principles. From the push-and-pull of politics, culminating in the witch-hunts of the McCarthy period, to heady days in the magazine business, first with Architectural Forum and then with the brilliant but ultimately doomed Architecture Plus, Peter Blake has always been energetically involved with his art and with his era. No Place Like Utopia is thus doubly valuable, as a wonderfully readable historical and personal document, and a pungent commentary on where modern architecture went wrong and right." - Publisher.

About this Item: Clarkson Potter, New York, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. xii, 532 pp., [48] pp. of plates, illus., maps, bib. notes, index; 25 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Small remainder mark (ink dot)/top edge. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket, with light shelfwear, protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "The Municipal Art Society was founded in New York City in the wake of the World's Columbian Exposition, when the Great White City in Chicago ushered in a new conception of what American cities could achieve through coordinated planning and the collaboration of the nation's best classical architects and artists. In 1890s New York, much of the population lived in apartments that had no toilets; developers considered it their inalienable right to build a skyscraper on a twenty-foot lot; and graft, not need, determined the city government's construction priorities. If this situation has changed, we owe it less to the councilmen and mayors who enacted legislation than to the citizen activists who persuaded them to do so. Shaping the City is a stirring account of a century of just such citizen activism, not a dry institutional history but the inside story of city government as it affects the physical environment. We know of MAS today as the organization that led the fight against overdevelopment at Columbus Circle and the battle to retain the honky-tonk character of Times Square. but in its early days. MAS was the guiding force behind the City Beautiful movement. Its members built the city's great classical ensembles, and they ushered in a golden age of municipal architecture with their designs for bridges, park pavilions, monuments, even lamp posts. MAS was among the first organizations to demand the introduction of zoning to New York. It also pioneered the concept of community planning and undertook the seemingly hopeless task of protecting landmarks, persuading Mayor Robert F. Wagner to sign the Landmarks Preservation Law -- a model for the rest of the nation. In these pages, Gregory F. Gilmartin has looked beyond the narrow scope of architectural history and focuses instead on the people, policies, and politics that shape the cityscape. He is frank in his portrayal of politicians and dirty tricks and encouraging in his portraits of citizens and programs that have made a difference. Shaping the City is addressed not only to those who are specifically interested in architecture, art history, parks, preservation, and urban history, but also to the more general reader who loves cities but is disturbed by the destruction of neighborhoods and the overwhelming scale of new developments. The book is especially valuable as a demonstration that the political process can be made to work for the public interest. The result is not nostalgia, but will convince readers that they -- as the Municipal Art Society has done and continues to do -- can participate shaping the agenda for the future. / Gregory F. Gilmartin is the coauthor of New York 1900 and New York 1930, which was nominated for the National Book Award in 1987. He lives in New York City and is currently a designer with Peter Pennoyer Architects." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible. Seller Inventory # 039455

About this Item: Excel Books, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a revolutionary way of looking at the processes involved in buying. This book elaborates the basic concepts of Supply Chain Management and provides a comprehensive coverage of the methodology and key strategic drivers in the different processes involved in operating and designing a Supply Chain. The book explains the evolution of Supply Chain Management, its concept and philosophy. It also looks at the different elements that go into the design of the Supply Chain and the purchasing functions from the supply chain perspective. The book not only deals with the planning function of SCM, it also covers the fundamental concepts of forecasting and demand management, planning and control, including the aggregate plan, the different types of inventory models and their classification, work-in-progress and finished goods inventory and quality as a new and major component of Supply Chain Management. Information plays a critical part in properly designed supply chains. Therefore, a whole chapter is dedicated to discuss the functionality of information in supply chains. It describes the principles behind generating `Supply Chain Information` as well as the different architectures of supply chain information apart from covering the fundamentals of e-Business. Different aspects and modes of transportation in India, containerization, impact of globalization on logistics, warehouse designs, materials handling systems and warehousing strategies are the other important topics that have been discussed in the book. The book not only begins with the bull-whip effect, it also ends with it. The last chapter discusses supply chain coordination problems and solutions to these problems. This book is not an academic treatise, though it provides the most comprehensive coverage of the different facets of supply chain management. An important feature of this book is that its text is supported by some outstanding case studies developed by the faculty of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Printed Pages: 728.

About this Item: PHI Learning, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Intended as a textbook on graphics at undergraduate and postgraduate level, the primary objective of the book is to seamlessly integrate the theory of Computer Graphics with its implementation. The theory and implementation aspects are designed concisely to suit a semester-long course. Students of BE/BTech level of Computer Science, Information Technology and related disciplines will not only learn the basic theoretical concepts on Graphics, but also learn the modifications necessary in order to implement them in the discrete space of the computer screen. Practising engineers will find this book helpful as the C program implementations available in this book could be used as kernel to build a graphics system. This book is also suitable for the students of M.Sc. (Computer Science) and Computer Applications (BCA/MCA). To suit the present day need, the C implementations are done for Windows operating system exposing students to important concepts of message-driven programming. For wider acceptability, Dev C++ (an open source integrated windows program development environment) versions of the implementations of graphics programs are also included in the companion CD-ROM. This book introduces the students to Windows programming and explains the building blocks for the implementation of computer graphics algorithms. It advances on to elaborate the two-dimensional geometric transformations and the design and implementation of the algorithms of line drawing, circle drawing, drawing curves, filling and clipping. In addition, this well-written text describes three-dimensional graphics and hidden surface removal algorithms and their implementations. Finally, the book discusses illumination and shading along with the Phong illumination model. Key Features : Includes fundamental theoretical concepts of computer graphics.

About this Item: John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage. Language: English . Brand New Book. You ve read the headlines: industry after industry (airlines, automakers, drug companies, high tech) battered by globalization, deregulation, and commoditization. The Darwinian struggle to deliver profitable products and services keeps getting more brutal as competitive advantage gaps get narrower and narrower. Anything you invent today will soon be copied by someone else probably better or cheaper. Many companies thrive during the early stages of their life cycle, reveling in bursts of energy and advancement, only to fall slack during periods of inertia and die out while others surge ahead. But some notable companies have figured out how to deal with Darwin at every phase of their evolution making changes on the fly while fending off challenges from every quarter. Dealing with Darwin will help you understand your company s role in its market ecosystem; where your competitive advantage came from in the past and how it will change in the future; what kinds of differentiation will be most rewarded in your current marketplace; and how to transform your internal dynamics to overcome the inertia that threatens every bold innovation. Bestselling author Geoffrey Moore has consulted for dozens of major companies on this challenge of innovation versus inertia. But in the fall of 2002, he got an unprecedented offer from John Chambers, the CEO of Cisco Systems: unlimited access to Cisco s management processes, with permission to reveal exactly how Cisco continues to innovate relentlessly as a mature enterprise. This collaboration led to the case study that forms the heart of the book not just an insider story but a masterpiece of management analysis. Dealing with Darwin, Moore s most ambitious work to date, offers nothing less than a new unified theory of the evolution of markets. Drawing on hundreds of different examples, Moore illuminates how established companies can prevent their own extinction not by throwing resources wildly at every potential innovation, but by moving forward with precision, courage, and smart timing. Geoff Moore is the master at creating a vocabulary for management strategy that captures the competitive dynamics of the times. In Dealing with Darwin, he uses this signature skill to tackle the fundamental challenge of twenty-first-century business how to create profitable growth in an increasingly competitive global economy. His models are helpful both for focusing innovation strategy and for improving productivity, and they have played an important role in the continuing evolution of our company. John T. Chambers, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cisco Systems, Inc. Dealing with Darwin provides a lucid and engaging perspective on managing innovation, an integral component of Motorola s vision of seamless mobility. Moore s frameworks his theory of innovation types, his ideas about the impact of business architecture on innovation, and his model for resource recycling to fund ongoing innovation efforts all have relevant application in today s rapidly evolving and increasingly competitive marketplace. Edward J. Zander, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Motorola Globalization is driving everyone to rethink their innovation strategies, and that not only includes SAP but most of our customers as well. For some time we have been using the models and vocabulary outlined in this book to help chart our own future and to better understand our customers changing needs. Geoff s experience and insight have made him a valued adviser during a time of critical transition in our industry. Dr. Henning Kagerman, CEO, SAP AG With Dealing with Darwin, Geoff Moore has provided the first practical guide to successfully navigate the dynamics of product and market innovation at all phases of the business cycle. This is a must read to successfully compete in the twenty-first century. William T. Coleman, Chief Executive Officer, Cassatt Corporation; Cofounder and Former Chairman, BEA Systems, Inc.
