How can a poet build something?
How Can a Poet Build Something? The poem Kubla Khan is a complex and perplexing poem. It was written after an opium-induced dream and serves as an insight into the subconscious of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It talks of things, which the reader would literally find impossible to imagine, and so is hard to deconstruct, it seems that it was never intended to be understood and rather just read and enjoyed. Without referring to the physical action of building with bricks and mortar, poets build through words, phrases, structure and grammatical devices. The most prominent grammatical devices used in this poem are hyperbole, metaphors and similes. All of these help emphasise what the poet is describing, they weave a lush visual tapestry in the reader's head. Starting at the top, the poem's title, Kubla Khan is the name of Genghis khan who lived lavishly. The poem describes a dome or temple he built in the mountains. The poem is structured with three stanzas, the rhyming structure seems random but it flows well and rhythmically. The hyperbole used, such as "caverns measureless to man", deeply emphasise his feelings and thoughts. Metaphors are another device used to emphasise emotions and experiences, as do similes. Alliteration is also used, as is religious imagery. All of these provide a media with which he can express his dream. The damsel with a dulcimer leads the poet to aspire
"Religious Expression can be done anywhere and should not be confined to just a building"
"Religious Expression can be done anywhere and should not be confined to just a building" I believe that worship should be performed any where that is decent and should not just be confined to a place/building of worship. Religious people believe that worship is a form of mental faithfulness. Worship isn't something that is measured by materialistic values or property. This is a strong point as it's the persons personal thoughts that make it worship. To worship doesn't concern what is around you or the people that you're with, it only concerns oneself and how you present and conduct yourself. Whether it's you're approach on life, you're dress or you're personal attitude. Worship is extremely personal and doesn't require the added, "extra" surroundings to help you're mental state of mind. I t is how you feel and you're attitudes towards life. The difference between the home, the street or the religious building is simply the location. To measure religious expression by what surrounds you is close minded thinking. It's like saying that you can't drink water because it comes out of different taps. It's all the same; it's that you drink it which is important! Traveling to a place of worship can be a problem as well if it's far away and also to maintain the place of worship could cost the regulars who visit the place of worship occasionally. However this is a weak reason as I
Construction Technology Complete Overview
Construction Technology and Surveying Settlement, Subsidence and Soil Types PH1A - Settlement Settlement occurs when the foundations of a building move in any way. It is caused by stressors or tension in the surrounding environment. Settlement cracks also occur in concrete walls or foundations shortly after being poured. These however are mostly due to shrinkage. Some of the problems this can create are cracks within the walls or even the foundations. Usually this can all be repaired and stabilized. The soil quality, foundation design and amount of reinforcement are all important when trying to overcome settlement. PH1B - Subsidence Subsidence occurs when the ground sinks due to underground 'voids'. A good example of this is if you construct building on top of abandoned mines; there will obviously be voids. The consequences of subsidence can be very serious. It can not only cause serious structural damage to buildings but to roads and underground services and utilities. Some areas may appear to be subsidence free for years but then either gradually or drastically change. PH1C - Soil Types Soil types are an extremely important factor when designing a new building, especially the foundations. There are two main soil types; Cohesive and Granular. Cohesive soils have smaller particles. Silt particles range from 0.063mm - 0.002mm and clay is composed of particles smaller
During the years 1928-29, Mies worked on four projects for office buildings, all of which reveal simplifications and refinements of his early experiments in glass buildings.

Strucutre was not used as an illustration of building systems engineering but as an architectural device which, torgther with the free-standing screens, describes the perpetuity of space. The visible continuity of the arcading is constant interrupted by the screen which have been slide as internvetions into the horizontal space that separate floor from ceiling. Now hownstand beam is allowed to interfere with the plane over hear For mies a more exact and new architecture had logically evolved out of his recent acquainteance with the steel frame. The grid of mullions, spandrels and columns appears to umpoase denser, more opaque perimeter wall to the building. The presence of the columns at the edge of the building appears to impart the wall with a thickness approximating to the thickness of the column itself. Likewise, internally, for the same reasons Mies tried to avoid a hald column projecting from a wall. What is interesting to note is that Mies, whether using steel concrete, frequently detailed both materials as if they has equally plastic properties. Steel prefers to be dry connected by bolting. There are never any visible bolted connections in Mies work. Analysis of attitude towards materials Steel
In order to achieve successful sustainable development in the construction industry, environmental responsibility, economical profitability and social awareness have to be well balanced and more impotantly, engineers always have to be aware of environment
CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY: COURSEWORK CONCEPT OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY In the past, the main object of construction industry was how to achieve our needs with efficient cost, materials, time, etc. For example, if domestic building is built, providing what we need, such as light, water supply, heating system, etc. within the acceptable cost range, was the only things that to be concerned. However, since industrial revolution, exploded construction industry led the many problems on environment. Huge increasing on consumption of natural resources emitted significant amount of CO2, and this emission was the main causes of global warming. Moreover, depletion of ozone layer, acid rain, smog, biodiversity loss and eutrophication were come out as another environmental issues. These environmental impacts have gradually increased and people started to think how to reduce the environmental impact with fulfil our needs. In other word, how to balancing between the environmental, economical social needs. This is the basic concept of sustainable development. Figure 1: Risk and impacts of global warming1 Sustainable development is defined as: development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs2. Sustainable development, especially, in the construction industry has become critical. In
Kenilworth Castle: How and why did the Castle Develop Over Time?
Kenilworth Castle: How and why did the Castle Develop Over Time? From the beginning of the 11th Century Kenilworth had just a lone watchtower atop the rocky knoll where the Stone Keep sits today. In this chapter I will describe the changes made to Kenilworth Castle over time, what, why and how affected these changes and who influenced their construction. In 1120 the first major building work took place at Kenilworth, a Motte and Bailey castle was built on the rocky, gravely hill in the place of the old Watchtower, fifty two years after a Motte and Bailey structure had appeared down the road at Warwick. The first tenant of Kenilworth Castle was Geoffrey De Clinton, after being granted the royal manor of Stoneleigh, he needed to defend himself against his neighbours the earls of Warwick. Between 1174-84 a heated political feud between Henry II and his son boiled over, resulting in Kenilworth Castle and others being provisioned and garrisoned by Henry. At this time the castle was rebuilt in stone, in Kenilworth's case red sandstone, a material easily come across in the area. Built with thick walls, latest state of the art defences such as Slit windows, parapets, a secure water supply and a single spiral staircase leading up the keep. The whole structure was crafted upon a sandstone plinth, heightening the keep further. The keep was an oblong shape building with square towers.
ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE, CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT STYLE An organisation needs a structure in order to achieve successfully its objectives. Businesses are structured
C2 - ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE, CULTURE AND MANAGEMENT STYLE An organisation needs a structure in order to achieve successfully its objectives. Businesses are structured in different ways according to the way there operate and according to their culture. The structure of the business can affect the way it works and performs. An ideal structure will enable management to perform in the most effective way, whereas as unsuitable structure can lead to poor morale among employees. It is important for an organisation to have a clear mission and a unifying culture, which no organisation can let the culture to get in the way of change. Kenwood is also in the cultural environment, which is of constant change and development, indicating that they must keep up with the changes even if it means taking a risk, this is to keep their competitive advantage. They also needs to keep their employees happy, as they are what sell the business and satisfy the customers. As many people are anxious of changes, many of the long-term employees do not like changes in which they work. If changes to the structure and the way in which they work improve Kenwood's ability to meet their objectives, it must be discussed with the employees so that they are content in helping the restructure to become a success in meeting their objectives. There are three main structures that an organisation could have: * Flat

I think most of you would find yourself familiar with the following scenario or even have the same experience. When you doing your essay as a student or searching information for your project as a worker, using the famous search engine like yahoo or Google, you will find piles of information on the internet whether they are relevant to your topic or not. Soon you will find that the more information you find and gather on the internet, the more difficult for you to do your task as not only lots of time is spent on gathering the information, but also, you need to spend enormous time on going through the information provided by the search engine. Worse still, much more time is needed for you to make a decision on which information is useful and relevant for your work, which is not. Some may comment that development in IT (Information technology) makes our lives easier and more comfortable as compared with several decades ago, nowadays, with technological advancement like the widespread of

When most people mention Ancient Egypt the first thing that comes to mind is the Pyramids. To construct such monuments required a mastery of art, architecture and social organization that few cultures would ever rival. The pyramids are said to have built Egypt by being the force that knit together the kingdom's economy. Their creations were so substantial, that the sight of these vast pyramids would take your breath away. Today, the valley of the Nile has an open air museum so people can witness these grand monuments. Obsessed with the afterlife, Egypt's rulers of 4,500 years ago glorified themselves in stone, thereby laying the foundation of the first great nation-state. A Pyramid is an enormous machine that helps the king go through the wall of the dead, achieve resurrection and live forever in the happiness of the gods. The start of the Old Kingdom is said to be the building of the Djoser's monument. The construction of Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djoser began around 2630 B.C. and was designed to awe the ancient Egyptians, to impress them with their rule's godlike strength. It was the world's first great construction project; indeed, it was the world's largest building. Djoser, the second king of the 3rd dynasty, hired an architect called Imhoptep who for the first time constructed a tomb completely of stone. Imhoptep is considered the preeminent genius of the Old Kingdom.
