Author: Wolfgang Jung
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783663077565
Release Date: 2013-12-01
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchung steht die Villa Madama, die wohl bedeutendste, wenn auch nur zum Teil ausgeführte, Villa der römischen Hochrenaissance. Gespiegelt wird sie in dem für Raffaels Entwurfsansatz programmatischen Fresko der Schule von Athen und der in diesem Sinne vorbildhaften ersten Planung seines Lehrers Bramante für St.-Peter.Eine minutiöse Rekonstruktion der Entwurfsschritte - in der Malerei wie in der Architektur - bildet die Ausgangsbasis dieser Untersuchung; ihr erstes Ziel ist, Raffaels Vorstellung von der albertianischen venustas eines Kunstwerk näher zu fassen. Für diesen methodischen Ansatz ist Heinz Kählers großartige Arbeit Hadrian und seine Villa bei Tivoli ein wichtiges Vorbild.Die Ausgangsfrage der Untersuchung, gestellt an die etwa 472-jährige Villa Madama, nach der kompositionellen Schönheit ist grundsätzlich zeitlos. Hier ist Rudolf Wittkowers "Die Prinzipien der Architektur im Zeitalter des Humanismus" ebenso Ausgangs- wie Referenz-, aber auch Contrapunkt.

Administrative Governance

Author: Andrea Walter
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783658156800
Release Date: 2016-09-01
Genre: Political Science

Andrea Walter untersucht Chancen und Herausforderungen für Kommunalverwaltung in lokaler Politikgestaltung mit Vereinen und Verbänden am Beispiel einer Fallkommune. Sie illustriert das Rollenverständnis von Kommunalverwaltung sowie die Bedeutung von Interaktionsregeln und des lokalen Kontextes. Auf dieser Basis entwickelt sie ein Modell administrativer Governance. Ihre Befunde ordnet sie in den Kontext lokaler Governance, kooperativen Verwaltungshandelns und Fragen der Legitimation ein. Die Autorin beleuchtet damit eine bislang wenig beachtete Facette von Kommunalverwaltung, die primär als Zuarbeiterin von Politik gilt. Dabei umfasst ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer Arbeit auf lokaler Ebene die Interaktion mit (organisierter) Zivilgesellschaft – in Zeiten knapper Kassen und zunehmender Beteiligungsprozesse gilt dies umso mehr.
