Driven by the rapid economic development, the development of transportation in China has begun to move towards mountainous areas. The climate environment, topography and landform of mountainous cities are different from those of plain areas. In mountainous cities, the area of opposite interchanges between expressways and urban roads is generally large, which has a certain contradiction with the topographic conditions of mountainous cities. Therefore, it is necessary to reasonably design the opposite interchanges between expressways and urban roads in mountainous cities. The author explores and analyzes the factors restricting the special-shaped interchange between expressway and urban road in mountainous cities and the main forms of special-shaped interchange, and puts forward a reasonable design scheme, hoping to make a smooth development of the special-shaped interchange in mountainous cities.

Study area is located at the southwest border of Yunnan Province and the southward extended part of Nushan Mountain, with complex and fragile geo-environmental conditions. Deep geological survey and mathematical analytical investigation on the geohazard distribution and hazard-causing mechanisms in this area were carried out in this study. The results revealed that: (1) The development of geohazards was affected differently by different slope shapes, slope structures and elevations; (2) Most of the geohazards were developed in medium shallow cut ridge-like medium-height mountainous geomorphological region and shallow cut steamed bun-like low and medium-height mountainous geomorphological region, and they were relatively concentrated on tectonic zones like fault zones; (3) The slopes formed by loose earth piling up on the surface of Indo-Chinese magmatic rock and Lancang Group metamorphic rock formations were most prone to slope instability and even landslide. The deep study on the geohazard distribution and hazard-causing mechanisms can provide geoscientific basis and reference for the prevention and mitigation work of geohazards under similar geo-environmental conditions.

As the main force of construction enterprises, construction enterprises shoulder the important task of national pillar industries. However, at present, construction enterprises are still labor-intensive enterprises, with low profitability, low overall scientific and technological level, insufficient innovation ability and weak application and protection of intellectual property rights. Based on the current situation of construction enterprises, combined with the author’s enterprise, this paper considers the problems existing in the intellectual property management of construction enterprises, and puts forward some countermeasures for the intellectual property management.

As an important part of today’s social development, cities are also an important guarantee for the improvement of people’s living standards. As an important model of urban spatial layout, urban planning and management plays an important role in the development of urban economy, politics and culture. Based on this, this paper takes “urban planning and management” as the research theme, analyzes the existing planning model, and starts from the aspects of content and form, improves the pertinence and directivity of the existing planning system, so as to provide valuable reference for experts in the field.

This article will use Foucault’s theory to critically consider the relationship between power, people, space and society at the boundary where different powers conflict with each other. Through the analysis of the project “Decolonizing Al Nada,” this article will discuss how relations with those with power and social mentality are reframed at the border through the reconstruction of architecture and space.

In the 18th century, British gardens began to transform from a classical to a natural landscape style. During this period, they were influenced by the economy, local nature, as well as foreign cultures. The 18th century was the golden period of cultural exchange between China and the West which gave Britain the opportunity to absorb the cultures of Chinese classical gardens. British gardeners had used various elements of Chinese classical gardens as their point of reference which promoted the development of British natural landscape gardens.

“Professional Guiding Standards for Advanced Education Architecture in University Undergraduate Students” (2013 edition) indicates that the education system of architecture should include a section on “environment and site.” It should involve six learning components which are concepts of site and environment, site terrain classifications, environment of two tendencies, elements involved in the sites, elements of environmental impact, and site design.[1] As site design (drawing) has become a significant topic in the examination of registered architects, many domestic architecture colleges have set up site design courses as independent ones. After more than ten years of exploration and research in developing the education system of site design courses, teaching experiences and achievements have been acquired. Site design courses have been gradually integrated with general plan design, registered architect examination, and architectural programming. Teachers have specified relevant learning goals in the regular daily curriculum in addition to the basic and vocational education of architecture. In this way, the site design course would be more in line with the educational goals of architecture. This paper aims to analyze the education of site design courses in hope of developing the future architectural education.

In order to improve the implementability of municipal road design, the rational application of BIM Technology in the process of road design is a common method in current road engineering design units. The advantages of BIM Technology, such as visualization, simulation, coordination and optimization, are increasingly recognized by the industry. In this paper, the author draws on many years of practical experience to introduce the advantages of BIM Technology, as well as how to apply BIM Technology to optimize municipal road design work and to discuss some views, in the hopes of assisting in the further improvement of the level of municipal road constructions in China.

Slope ecological protection technology is a form of slope protection with high ornamental and good economic value. At present, it is widely used in highways and urban streets’ slope protection works. However, its use is not very common in mountain tourism highways; hence, it is necessary to implement strategies for mountain tourism highway slope ecological protection design to promote excellent development.

Currently, expressways encourage the use of interchange design methods in the layout mode to improve the safety of expressway operation in order to relieve road transportation pressure and strengthen the prevention of traffic safety accidents. The advantages and characteristics of the interchange method are more obvious and have important application value when compared to other interchange methods. This paper mainly studies and analyzes on the safety design and major challenges of interchanges in order to ensure the safe application of interchange forms in expressways.
