Formed of huge gun positions with massive thick concrete walls. It would take at least a division to seize, but in the early dawn while the Belgium defenders looked out horizontally, German Fallschirmjaegers Paratroopers and gliders did the impossible.
Is Ablarc still posting? I hope nothing unfortunate happened. Lrfox- Anyone tried PM-ing him? It could be a terrible nuisance and drive him further away like a nagging, over-bearing girlfriend, but I miss his posts as well.
He just started posting again over at WNY so hopefully he will be back here soon as well. NY gets everything first. Not only is it well designed and executed, it was built in the early- to mids, long before there was a proven market for anything like this.
He may have driven Westy from here too. I hope they both come back. Might have heard it a thousand times before but I never get sick of it.
Things get a bit heated from time to time and there is the occasional bozo who makes moronic or offensive comments, but this is the internet. His urban design and planning projects are rather impressive in my opinion. Dilworth Crescent is a wonderful new urbanist creation, Toccoa College looks to be an interesting reinterpretation of St.
But those churches…stick a cross on a warehouse and presto! A conscious choice to set themselves apart from the Catholic and Episcopal styles of architecture and worship.
The staff of this predecessor was comprised entirely of Mr. Friction between the dean of this school and the volatile Mr. Incze resulted in his resigning his teaching job in the late s. His early engagement in what has come to be called New Urbanism was based on his knowledge of history.
Dilworth Crescent, Charlotte, NC was largely his brainchild. It was immensely profitable for its developer, James Gross a former student of Incze.
This project was, as noted by contributors to archBOSTON, a decade ahead of its time, but the inspiration for its compact site plan is centuries old. Incze failed to build a reputation based upon his contribution to this lucrative development. Thomas Incze was satisfied playing the role of dishonorable prophet.
He was always right, and the rest of the world was dead wrong. This was not due to a lack of clarity, however, but mainly due to his intransigence. He was stubborn, proud, and at times insolent and abusive.
My personal campaign to humanize him ended in defeat. I have vowed to never speak to him again. Historic prototypes were resurrected, transported to a present-day site, then promoted to a revolving series of aspiring real estate developers. Every scheme was viable, yet very few were actually developed.
The speculative work was underwritten by funds earned through individual building commissions. Speed of execution and extremely low fees ensured that there was a seemingly limitless supply of work.
Regrettably, the late recession set in, and this hitherto reliable supply dwindled to almost nothing. A journey that began with a privileged childhood in Europe, continued through Harvard and Yale, an abbreviated academic career, and, finally, a highly subsidized and ultimately fruitless obsession with urban design has now come to a bittersweet close.
Though I managed to earn a living throughout my association with Mr. Incze, I had no desire to remain as heir apparent to a firm whose income was based solely on low cost and quick turnaround.
The costs were set by Mr.The greatest irony of the post-modern Left is not just their incoherent marriage of Nihilism with intense moral indignation and self-righteousness, but their habit of hanging this mess on Nietzsche and Marx-- Nietzsche, who saw Nihilism as the greatest danger and challenge of the age and who dismissed "that cheapest of propaganda tricks, a moral .
SHE was one of those pretty and charming girls, born by a blunder of destiny in a family of employees. She had no dowry, no expectations, no means of being known, understood, loved, married by a man rich and distinguished;: and she let them make a match for her with a little clerk in the Department of Education.
1: She was simple since she could . Table 2, based on the Army's 77 BCT program, shows the changes in terms of Army battalions. The Army's decision to increase the number of maneuver companies in its modular heavy BCT battalions from three to four makes it necessary to consider the number of combat maneuver companies as well as the number of battalions.
Some children wanted the cafe where their friends were murdered to be torn down. But grieving parents needed it to remain.
The architects of Utøya’s memorial building in Norway explain how they. Yesterday, we posted the obituary of Claude Holloway, a British Motor Torpedo Boat commander, who heroically saved dozens of sailors in the German attack on Bari, Italy in Holloway was nearly killed by mustard gas bombs secretly carried aboard the American Liberty ship, SS John Harvey.
Ironically, the explosion of this secret mustard gas and its terrible aftermath, may have helped save.
The treatment of slaves in the United States varied by time and place, but was generally brutal and degrading. Whipping and sexual abuse, including rape, were common.
Teaching slaves to read was discouraged or (depending upon the state) prohibited, so as to hinder aspirations for escape or rebellion.
