Despite occasional flood damage, it withstood wheeled traffic for 500-odd years – thanks, legend says, to eggs mixed into the mortar (though recent investigations have disproved this myth) – until it was made pedestrian-only after WWII.

With slide film, it is probably best to take 5 bracketed exposures at 1/2 f-stop intervals. Our vision of Sustainability embraces a wide range of design strategies including optimizing the building orientation and envelope design to reduce heat gain while enabling access to natural daylight; improving air quality through use of low-emitting materials and increased air filtration; and incorporation of water-conserving plumbing fixtures and high efficiency mechanical systems that most facility managers can operate without specialized training.
