Retrofit 40 By Blake Belanger, Howard Hahn
Paperback: $44.32
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) has undertaken a multi-decade planning effort to help coordinate new growth in an urban context of changing demographic and economic patterns in the Kansas... More > City Metro Area. Retrofit 40 was an eight-week summer studio course led by Assistant Professors Blake Belanger and Howard Hahn, and was comprised of seventeen landscape architecture students including non-baccalaureate master’s degree students entering their fourth year and post-baccalaureate master’s degree students entering their second year of study. As an academic research and design inquiry, the studio chose to approach dilemmas and opportunities of the corridor from a visionary perspective with a planning horizon of 2040 and beyond. Recognizing the challenges of current economic conditions, the studio also proposed progressive strategies to catalyze short-term interventions. This book documents the research, design, and results of Retrofit 40.< Less
Defunct Retrofitting By Richard Lucero

Suburbia has transitioned from being the home of the nuclear family to the new home of DINKs, double income no kids. These new inhabitants seek urban life within the suburban environment. Suburban... More > building typologies like that of the strip mall and big box store are often the only escapes within suburbia. These typologies are severely lacking in their ability to be re-adapted and converted to other uses beyond retail. This investigation, research and concept is an attempt to try and in-vision how one might retrofit the defunct.< Less
The E34 Factory Options Retrofit Guide By Marcus Corbin
Hardcover: $125.00
Ships in 6-8 business days.
This unofficial DIY guide shows how to retrofit the various factory options to the BMW E34 vehicle. The guide covers most of the two dozen options available for the E34, from the integral sunshades... More > to the headlight washers and seat memory, and takes the reader step by step through the retrofits, describing the parts needed, tools, wiring, and installation steps to be followed. The guide includes color photographs illustrating the retrofit steps and showing various views of how the cars are put together. The text covers the steps on the basis of actual retrofits, provides tips not covered in factory instructions, includes part numbers, and describes factory and other useful reference materials. The retrofits can be done by a hobbyist without mechanic’s training. The introduction to the book provides a description of the special features – optional or not – that made these cars such outstanding luxury vehicles, on top of their reliability, solidity, performance, and beauty.< Less
Beyond Warhol in the 21st Century: A Post-Pop MetaRomantic Retrofit By Robert Henry Mutterson II
Paperback: $23.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Catalog for an exciting and groundbreaking art exhibition in Chicago, April-May 2010 featuring four contemporary artists from across the country who explore the tensions between Modernism and Pop Art... More > through the works of Andy Warhol. Rather than a simple, shorehugging reiteration of the pop style and aesthetic of Warhol in the mode of Jeff Koons, they filter Warhol through their own metaromantic prism in a strong, provocative and highly subjective manner. These four would rather advance the personal vision of the artist than negate it. Exploration, both interior and of the world at large, is their chief goal, whether it is reexamining old truths or retrofitting a synthesis of prior methods, styles and ethea with a new vocabulary.< Less
OTREC-RR-10-17 By Peter Dusicka

This study examines retrofitting bridge brace elements with fiber reinforced composites to provide restraint against buckling. The composites are fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite pultruded... More > sections and wet lay-up wraps. Prototype specimens were tested using reverse cyclic loading, and their performance was characterized by their compressive strength and their overall hysteretic behavior. This exploratory study shows that retrofitting slender bracing members with FRP sections improves performance. All retrofitted specimens show improved compressive strength in the linear elastic and plastic deformation range of the slender bracing member. The cyclic behavior had only a marginal improvement due to failure at the bolted brace connections. Brace modification marginally improved cyclic performance. Despite the challenges of connection failures, applying fiber reinforced composites has a potential to restrain buckling of slender bracing members and to improve compressive resistance.< Less

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte was approached by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, requesting student surveyors to participate in a ‘nation-wide’ building... More > survey of older, smaller, commercial and mixed-use buildings. The surveyors volunteered for the position with a return of 3 credit hours earned toward their education. All students were or currently are seeking their Masters of Architecture, “with a strong interest in building classification, preservation, building reuse and/or sustainability”. The surveyors conducted the building survey using the survey website (www.greenlabsurvey.org) in combination with a printable copy of the survey and other associated supporting documents, including a survey handbook.< Less
