This book documents most of the events held in 2013 to celebrate the first hundred years of Clemson University's architectural program (1913-2013). The centennial events began in March with a four-campus meeting to honor the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building Research and Urban Studies in Genoa, Italy, and the Barcelona Architecture Center. Exhibitions, lectures, and other events continued at various locations (in Clemson and elsewhere) through October.

In recent years, municipalities throughout the United States have considered, and some have instituted, regulations and restrictions on retail grocery and carrier bags in order to promote sustainability and reduce perceived litter problems. At the time of writing of this report, about six percent of the U.S. population was covered by legislation or regulation affecting the selection and use of grocery bags. Such legislation is designed to encourage use of selected carrier bag types and discourage use of other types. Much controversy exists, however, as to whether the various alternatives encouraged by the regulations are environmentally superior solutions.
In light of this trend, the intended application of this study is to provide an objective, data-driven platform upon which decisions about grocery bag use can be made. This study aims to fulfill that goal by making a comparative assertion among the six types of grocery carrier bags studied based on their respective potential environmental impacts, using data appropriate to the United States. Since widespread misconceptions exist among consumers regarding the potential environmental impact of the various bag types, the authors also hope to equip the general public with the information they need to make informed decisions about their own individual bag use. The authors intend to use the results of this study in a comparative assertion to be disclosed to the public, especially legislators and consumers.

Since its first year of instruction in 1913, architectural education at Clemson has been mindful of its geographies--its connections and relationships to both the state of South Carolina and to the wider world. This book outlines the century of Clemson's architectural program in the form of a time-line, laid out in two half-century parts.

This is a book about a man who may have done more to give the parks their present character than anyone in their history.… As Sherwood confesses, there is so much in the large Hartzog arsenal of assets that it is difficult to identify a very few attributes that made him special. However, Sherwood sees Hartzog's desire for further learning and growth as possibly his single greatest asset. While this zest for continued improvement was an important personal incentive, the crucial point is that Hartzog saw it as the means by which he could realize the full potential of his endeavors within the park service.

During the past thirty years, the sensitive management of historic landscapes has emerged as a prominent concern among those who appreciate how preserving a rich and vital past is integral to successful community and environmental stewardship. Accompanied by a critical introduction and concluding essay, the papers in this volume convey the diversity of contemporary historic landscape preservation projects located in North America, England, Germany, India, and Australia. Exploring the Boundaries of Historic Landscape Preservation offers an excellent summation of the current state of discussion and practice in this exciting field and casts light on some of the active frontiers of its future growth.

The Piedmont of South Carolina today is a patchwork of forests, farms, pastures, and developed urban and suburban landscapes. Clemson University’s habitats and natural history reflect similar diversity and history of landscape use, being home to native plants as well as ornamentals, a variety of animals and insects, with layers of history and change reflected in the landscape. The campus has a significant green framework, an interconnected system of landscape plantings, gardens, creeks, remnant natural areas, and shoreline. These green spaces enrich the lives of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, offering a green antidote to the increasing pace of urbanization in upstate South Carolina. Discovering the inhabitants of these green areas on campus enriches our understanding of the environment on which we depend. This field guide will inspire you to observe and investigate the natural world.

Using the measures outlined in this booklet as a "system" is easy. Planting trees on the east and west sides of your home, installing pavements that are reflective and porous, and redirecting winter winds are all ideas that can be implemented for new homes as well as for retro-fitting existing homes. By incorporating these cost effective and innovative approaches to energy efficiency around your home, you can simultaneously reduce energy costs and create a more pleasant environment.
