The five-star luxury Hotel Ritz in Madrid is currently under refurbishment. The works include the construction of a new large skylight above the main hall inspired on the original design. This paper focus on the design and construction of this skylight which consist of 2 different parts, the Hall Bajo with a vault shape, and the Hall Alto which is a trapezoidal dome crowned by a pyramid roof. The structure consists in slender steel welded T profiles and small rectangular plates which connects the main beams. The connections between the structural members are welded in order to obtain a rigid connection. The perimeter consists in a welded RHS beam which creates a stiff tension ring which is completed by a visible cable. The pyramid roof performs as a compression ring for the in-plane loads and as a Vierendeel beam for the vertical loads. The cladding is composed of flat and cylindrical insulating glass panes. A geometric study is carried out in order to define the cylindrical surface that better fits a spherical frame. Some panes are structural, providing stability to the slender profiles. To guarantee the tight geometric tolerances required the structure is divided into modules, which also facilitates the transport.

The interiority of buildings in tropical countries requires specific characteristics unlike those in countries with four distinct seasons. Buildings in non-tropical climates must protect their inhabitants from extreme weather, meaning that the architecture's connection with nature is necessarily limited by a boundary which can withstand extreme climatic differences. In tropical countries, on the other hand, the temperature does not fluctuate much throughout the year, so the temperature difference between seasons is not extreme. This characteristic is reflected in traditional Nusantara architecture, which incorporates a breathable wall so that free winds come in, reducing heat. The roof is tilted or saddled-shaped to keep rain water away from the building. The architecture uses organic materials and includes terraces for dialogue with nature. Modern Indonesian architecture, however, particularly in large cities, is mostly closed off, severely limiting the interaction with nature. Since the advent of air conditioning (AC) technology during the 1980's, architecture has changed to seal the boundaries of the building. Advances in information technology such as Internet and smartphones have made for further changes to architecture in the area; some functional spaces are being discarded, while others are expanded. The relationship between architecture and nature is now constrained by impenetrable materials such as brick, concrete and glass, as opposed to the more traditional, permeable boundary. In contrast to this trend, modern Indonesian society is tempted to form a closer relationship with nature. This paper examines how a relationship between nature and the interior of buildings may be accommodated again, presenting some existing projects by several architects from Europe and Asian countries-including the authors' own work-as case studies.

Ecology and the Environment

Amanda Yates

The Nature of Cities

Brian McGrath

Both ecologists and architects need to together embrace the nature-culture continuum and to examine all the ways Nature is imagined, framed, viewed, cultivated, and used by city dwellers, as well as when it refuses to be tamed the way we expect it to. Our own intimate engagement with Nature emerges inside a particular natural-cultural continuum. Various human social groups construct different views of nature and act according to their particular sets of beliefs. This is the basis of the micro-politics of ecology.

James Miller

This paper critiques the application of the rights of nature in the production of eco-friendly architecture from a decolonizing perspective. The question at the center of our argument is whether the rights of nature can be useful as a method to express deeper relationships between natures and not peoples in architectural practice, or is the taking up of the rights of nature just another colonial manifestation of terra nullius meant to ensure settler colonial regimes are maintained in perpetuity? To tease out this question a recent architectural competition in Hawaii will be analyzed and explored as a methodology, alongside other architectural projects that serve as far more successful attempts at addressing indigenous rights, epistemologies and ways of building, which acknowledge settler colonialism and the need to decolonize architectural practice through respectfulness and reflexivity.

"This spring issue includes four essays. In describing the phenomenon of “running-with-a-stroller,” psychologist Tomo Imamichi makes a contribution to what might be called “everyday phenomenology.” Second, geographer Jacobs Sowers draws on a phenomenological approach to explore the unique character and ambience of southern California’s “Wonder Valley,” an unusual place inhabited by three different lifestyle groups that Jacobs identifies as “homesteaders,” “dystopics,” and “utopics.” In the third essay, independent researcher Stephen Wood probes his interest in place attachment by examining two lived dialectics: the spatial tension between inward and outward aspects of place; and the temporal tension between repetitive and singular events relating to place. In closing out this issue, environmental educator John Cameron writes a ninth “letter” from his island home off the coast of Tasmania. Drawing on an unusual environmental encounter with “phosphorescence,” Cameron ponders the difficult lived and conceptual tension between understanding and imagination. Current and back issues of EAP are available at: "

Now a day most work of the landscape architects are not often seen or are merely visible to the people. As for that, sometimes it prevents the appreciation of the work as an artful work. And also sometimes the work lost their functional and economical value. It seems to the people it was “natural” rather than “cultural”. In another way generally people believes it’s better to keep the nature untouched and human need not disturb the natural process. As we seen from the history most work of Frederick law Olmsted has been recognized as “natural” not “cultural” and after few decade people forgot their functional appeal (Sprine, 1995 page 111). His work on Yosemite national park or Boston’s river and fence way are can be great example of that fact. Constructing the “nature” in fact has some hidden controversy. The controversy lies on as the way of seen the landscape: either natural or cultural. Olmsted’s work makes us think about the middle ground about the controversy. It’s may be something like the John Muir’s concept of explaining the nature as temple and Gifford Pinchot’s concept of seeing nature as workshop. Lesley Instone (2004) in his article “Situating Nature: on doing cultural geographies of Australian nature” give the view point of a traveler who is traveling through the nature: “Negotiating the gap what is in our head and what is out there require strategies which refuses dualistic discourses and confound the distinction of nature and culture (page 132).” During my bachelor studies I was studied in Jahangirnagar University near Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh which is famous for its natural beauty and wild characteristics. The students always prevent the authority from the cutting down of trees and clear the forest to make new roads. But authority has the strong logic that the trees are at the age of dying and the authority needs to clean the trees to protect new one. This conflict reminds me about the searching for a middle ground where and by which we can construct nature in the way every one love and also fulfill its functional use. As Anne Whiston Sprine (1995) written: “nature can be constructed but it is not only a construction” (page 113).

2019 XJTLU International Conference: Architecture across Boundaries, KnE Social Sciences

As highlighted by the post-Cartesian discourse across philosophical schools, Western thought had been struggling for a long time with conceiving interconnectedness. The problematic of Western dualism is most apparent with the so-called mind-body problem, but the issue does not only relate to the separation of body and mind but also the separation of living beings from their environments. Asian philosophy, on the other hand, has had a long history of thinking relations. The paper argues that an architectural philosophy that is open for a dialogue with Asian views would allow for a new approach to conceptualising the interconnectedness of minds, bodies, environments, and cultures. Linking Asian and Western aesthetics with a discourse on ecology, and setting it into dialogue with contemporary theories of architecture, the paper also refers to recent research on embodiment that is engaging from a new point of view with the natural sciences, and that appears to confirm positions of traditional Chinese philosophy. Reconsidering traditional Chinese art and aesthetics, the paper suggests, could initiate a new eco-poetic way of thinking the built environment and its design in favour of a future that is more than smart.

How Wyndham Hotels & Resorts improved their data capabilities to get to know their guests better


Hospitality and leisure

We helped modernize Wyndham’s data architecture for better guest insights

Amazon Web Services

Running one hotel isn’t easy - running 9,000 hotels across 80 countries is a challenge on a different scale

In 2020, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, a franchisor which operates brands ranging from Super 8 to Wyndham Grand, was four years into a “cloud first” strategy and migration that had seen some early successes. Still, opportunities remained. Like many hospitality enterprises, Wyndham has grown in large part by acquisition to become a major international hotelier spanning 20 separate brands processing more than a million reservations a day.

Wyndham knew that data could provide a better understanding of guests, their stays and their preferences at Wyndham properties—and thus help positively impact the overall guest experience and loyalty. In 2016, the company undertook a large-scale data architecture overhaul as a first step. However, despite the years of investment, Wyndham still had opportunities for maximizing the potential of its data assets and to derive further benefits from investments already made.

Redesigning Wyndham’s data architecture with an eye toward a more efficient future and better guest experiences

The goal: Manage the Wyndham business more effectively by redesigning the data landscape to glean further insights and connect with guests in a personalized manner.

Wyndham had already implemented Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the basis for a new, cloud-based back end for data processing. However it was still relying on legacy platforms to ingest, move and process data. The first step was to help Wyndham more fully utilize AWS tools and services, while standardizing the methods by which data was transferred between its core systems. Specifically, Wyndham’s move to a more robust, scalable cloud environment provided improved quality checks, better error controls and better overall accuracy of its guest data.

One significant challenge was revamping the way that Wyndham handled data, including reviews for data integrity requiring manual review of each error—a painstakingly, slow and costly process. In the new data architecture, numerous AWS Platform as a Service (PaaS) tools were used, such as Amazon Kinesis, SFTP, Amazon API Gateway, to make sure that Wyndham’s data was streamlined, automated and moved to the new AWS environment securely. From an operational standpoint, tools such as Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon Elasticsearch and Amazon QuickSight enabled Wyndham to quickly visualize guest and property metrics through interactive dashboards. In aggregate, the newly established architecture – packaged using AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) - allowed Wyndham to access guest insights at a depth and speed which they had never experienced before.

Dramatic improvements in efficiency and accuracy , using the features of AWS

Before PwC entered the engagement, a single piece of data would travel an average of nine system steps to get from its point of creation to Wyndham’s central database, an error-fraught trip which would take up to two-and-a-half days to complete. Today, that number of steps has been reduced to four, and the journey now takes as little as five minutes. The quality of data has also been improved because it has been so effectively centralized, reducing the likelihood of inconsistencies and conflicts.

Wyndham has also seen an estimated 40 percent decrease in the time spent on managing its computing environment, thanks to being able to fully leverage the serverless architecture enabled through AWS. This in turn has helped reduce cost for the company, while now allowing Wyndham’s properties and corporate team to develop a fuller, more accurate understanding of its guests and their needs.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the travel industry in general, Wyndham is well-positioned for the impending recovery, thanks to a more efficient and accurate data architecture, rewarding the hotelier to help its owners spend more time focusing on their guests and less time investigating root causes behind data anomalies or inconsistencies.

“From better error handling to improved performance, we’re seeing a huge improvement in our technological capabilities which is positively impacting numerous areas of our business - and allowing us to focus on what matters most: our guests.”

Scott Strickland CIO, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts

“The underpinnings Wyndham had in place helped us redesign their data landscape to use AWS to its fullest potential - with a lens on protecting the integrity of Wyndham’s information and improving the accuracy of their guest data.”

Ali Abidi Principal, PwC
