From Intuition to Precision
Design has been described as making inspire decisions with incomplete information. True, we may use prior knowledge, we may even think we understand the causalites involved, but what really matters is exploration: of new forms, of new materials, and speculation about the response to the resulting effects. Essentially, this exploration has its own dynamics, involving intuition and spontaneity, and without which there is no design. But of course we all know that this is not the whole story. Design
Form in Islamic Architecture: A new vision by using 3D Studio Max program
Architecture is a record of human civilization, values, principles and concepts.

Faculty Forum Online: The Strange New Worlds of Exoplanets
The study of exoplanets—planets outside the solar system that orbit distant stars—can be portrayed as a single-minded quest for habitable, Earth-like planets. But the most remarkable discoveries have been exoplanets with unanticipated properties that can make habitation impossible.
In the first Faculty Forum Online of 2014, Associate Professor Joshua Winn ’94, SM ’94, PhD ’01 described these new worlds—and shared research discoveries about the formation and evolution of planets. Fol

Portale di archeologia medievale
The University of Siena, Italy, has produced a portal for students and researchers of medieval archaeology. The research projects and the "online publications" are the most useful sections.

The texts are generally brief, but there are several pictures and computer graphics. In particular, GIS technologies have been applied to all the projects. An entire section conce

Informal learning in early teacher development
In the context of increasing expansion of a competence – based model of teacher development, the counter-balance of a more articulate description and explanation of informal learning is urgently required. Our first use of the term in the context of professional learning emerged from preliminary theorising on the experience of learning to teach from the narrative data of beginners. It was invoked to describe learning that seemed to take place outside the formal structures and prescriptions of p
