Ancient Greek architecture is a product of the Hellenic and the Hellenistic people. Ancient Greek architecture is best known for its temples, most of which are found in the region as ruins. Ancient Greek architecture is distinguished by its highly formalized characteristics, both of structure and decoration, particularly in the temples. Most often these temples are raised on the high grounds so that the beauty of the well illuminated structure can be enjoyed from a good distance away in all angles. Although limestone was available the building material primarily used was stone, especially high quality marble.
Lowry seems to encapsulate Manchester’s industrial identity. His paintings appear to be faithful recordings of a particular time and geographical space, but many of these paintings were dreamscapes or composite paintings that were nostalgic in their imagining of a great industrial prowess that was fast disappearing after 1913. The perception of Lowry today is complex, but in many ways gives us an insight into how Manchester is represented both consciously and unconsciously. The paradox of Lowry is that while his painting, Piccadilly Circus (Figure 1) reached £5.6 million
Karl Blossfeldt was born in 1865 and was a German photographer, sculptor, teacher and artist that worked in Berlin, Germany. He was best known for his series of homemade cameras ranging from a zoom of up to 30 times the actual size of the subject. As his cameras were created in such an early period of time, his work amazed thousands and his photographs published as Unformen der Kunst was an instant bestseller, making Blossfeldt famous overnight. He photographed magnified images of plants, showing the architectural and artistic nature of the abstract shapes and structures of how plants grow; which both him and his father were inspired by. Blossfeldt was also a professor of Applied Art at Berlin Arts and Crafts School and used his photographs with his students, showing them too of the different forms of plants up close for their study.
Moreover, in Scenario one, this measure will provide $2,312,095 NPV for the company, which is the highest among all the measures, provided and in Scenario two, providing NPV with $9,252,190 for Carrefour make this measure the most profitable one after implementation. Solar Chiller Air-Conditioning is the best building design for Carrefour to adopt even though the building cost is higher than other measures but this project is a long-term investment, Solar Chiller Air-Conditioning can always provide the highest NPV, in other words, this measure will make most money for Carrefour. Exterior Wall Construction also provides positive NPV in all scenarios and has the second highest NPV among all six measures, so I will also recommend Exterior Wall Construction. I think another important issue Monaco should take into consideration could be the country-China. As stated in the case, the Chinese government did not really pay much attention to the green building or green construction.
He emerged as the wealthiest private individual in early twentieth century, and earned the title of “Lumber King” . He was also known for his contribution towards the development of the great West. Mr. Booth and Mr. Weyerhaeuser became very successful industrialists with the common traits of entrepreneurs, including strong leadership, determination, and risk-taking, yet they had different attitudes towards nurturing high potential venture opportunities.

Following their footsteps, was another Muslim Scientist Al Jazari who is listed among the most significant scientists in the history of mankind and is still awed in the scientific world for his mechanical marvels. He lived in 13th century in the city of Tor, an area between The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Being the most brilliant engineering mind of his time, he also served as the Chief Engineer as the King’s palace, where his father had formerly served. Inspired by the work of his predecessor the Banu Musa Brothers 300 years later their knowledge was inherited by Al Jazair, who further started digging into the vast knowledge of working of those water clocks and became the inventive engineer of his time. In 1206, encouraged and motivated by the words of the king Nasir Al-din to “not to lose what he has wearied himself with” he listed down his work, inventions and devices in his famous “Book of Ingenious Mechanical
Case Study 9.1: DeHavilland’s Falling Comet The DeHavilland story is a fascinating example of a well-respected organization that sought to be first to market with a radical new technology and cut some important safety corners, with disastrous results. The story highlights the problems when innovations in design are pushed too far, too quickly. With its unique design and all the additional features that made it radical, the Comet should have been slowly integrated into production and use, instead of being rushed to market. DeHavilland knew that Boeing was at work on its own design, the 707, and felt the need to be first to market. In this rush, they cut a number of safety corners with disastrous results.
