Autonomous mechanisms in architectural design systems
The development of architectural design systems that describe fully the form, structure and behaviour of a design relies heavily on the incorporation of intelligence in the representations, analyses, transformations and transactions used by the computer. Traditionally such intelligence takes either of two forms. The first is a methodical framework that guides actions supported by the design system (usually in a top-down fashion). The second is local, intelligence mechanisms that resolve discrete
Garlic is often called "the stinking rose." That's because it contains molecules composed of the same atoms that lurk in burnt matches and rotten eggs. This video explains the many uses of garlic and what chemicals are present. Some key words include: atom, electron, enzyme, sulfur, chemical reations, compounds, electron clouds, energy, and reactant. (7:00)

The Sunflower and the rose
Beloved by artists as well as gardeners, flowers are everywhere in art. But are they just flowers or do they carry hidden meanings? Is there a deeper significance - spiritual, cultural or aesthetic - than we realise? Put on your deerstalker and prepare to exercise your little grey cells as we tour a virtual art gallery looking for the clues that artists have left for us between the petals of the rose and the sunflower, two of summer's most beautiful flowers.
Devices and Desires
Organic devices are revolutionising lighting and solar cells, Professor Alison Walker will describe how this change will impact our lives. Light emission from organic materials is not very common in everyday life. However, some living creatures, such as fireflies and many sea creatures, emit light with amazingly high efficiencies.

Morphine is an extremely potent opiate analgesic psycho-active drug, and is considered to be the prototypical opioid. In clinical medicine, Morphine is regarded as the good stan
ICAtect-II: a framework for the integration of building design tools
The development of a system capable of integrating a range of building design tools poses many challenges. Our framework for integrating design tools provides a structured approach, allowing individual parts to be developed independently. In this paper, we describe the overall framework and suggest a method for modeling and implementing each portion of the framework. Furthermore, we illustrate how such a system can integrate several design tools and be realized as a functional design system.
