The 27th PLEA conference PLEA2011 - Architecture and Sustainable Development marks the 30th anniversary of PLEA. The topics of the conference tackle a broad range well beyond the subject of energy. Following from the last PLEA conference that was held in Quebec in 2009, we want this celebratory PLEA 2011 in Louvain-la-Neuve to provide a special meeting ground for architects, engineers and researchers to debate the theme of sustainable architecture and the different aspects of sustainable development that range from the scale of the city to those of materials and components.

In 2005, the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) was established to enhance and coordinate fed., state, and local efforts to combat nuclear smuggling domestically and abroad.

This testimony provides preliminary observations addressing: (1) the status of DNDOżs efforts to develop a global nuclear detection architecture; (2) the challenges DNDO and other fed. agencies fac

"Cognitive architecture" questions of how evolving modalities - from bio-politics to noo-politics - can be mapped upon the city under contemporary conditions of urbanization and globalization. Noo-politics, most broadly understood as a power exerted over the life of the mind, re-configures perception, memory and attention, and also implicates potential ways and means by which neurobiological architecture is undergoing reconfiguration. This volume, motivated by theories such as 'cognitive capitalism' and concepts such as 'neural plasticity', shows how architecture and urban processes and produc
