O_1:// the hypertextu(r)al matrix
Founded in 1995 LAB[au], laboratory for architecture and urbanism, links theoretic research LAB[a+u] to concrete works of conception and realisations LA.BAU. LAB[au] elaborates a ?hyperdesign? investigating the implications of new technologies of communication and computation in spatiotemporal and social processes and their forms of representation as architecture and urbanism. The transposition of the hypertext model to architectural and urban concepts question the mutation of the spatial and se

Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 3. Inventing Notations
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,Kenilworth Study: Pizzas In the fourth grade, the students encounter counting problems where the solutions cannot be built using standard manipulatives. As he invents his own notation systems, one student, Matt, builds on previous work to arrive at a solution

The paper discusses mathematical form generation as an academic methodology to develop new approaches to architectural design. The academic design studio ?Math objects? investigates the relationship between complex 3d-surfaces and mathematics in order to expand the formal repertoire of architecture. It claims that the process of form generation can be seen as an autonomous entity, which is independent from an overall strategy or any a priori meaning. Architecture has always originated from a co
The paper investigates knotting techniques as a method for generating wall systems. The essential matter of the paper is to demonstrate the potential of knotted, algorithmic architecture through different research studies, which share the knotting of linear elements as a common methodology for design development. Combinatorial Productivity implies that by combining linear elements hidden properties of a system emerge and thereby the system becomes productive.

When the Audience Clicks: Buying Attention in the Digital Age
Discussion of media buying and the attention-creation industry - showing how the fixation on audiences' click-like behaviour is a disruptive institutional force, and how buyers' new approaches to attention are creating new forms of social discrimination. A huge part of the media business is about getting people's attention and proving it to advertisers. The goal is to present people with interesting stuff-articles, videos, music - so they will see commercial messages that ride along, and sometim

Seeing Tibetan art
This site is a survey canvassing opinions of American, Swiss and Tibetan participants about their impressions of a number of works of Tibetan art. Whilst this may not be of direct relevance to visitors to the site from outside of these regions, the website is nonetheless of interest due to the variety of works it displays which cover a range of periods and styles. There is also the promise of future results from the survey, which should prove useful to any scholar of South Asian art and the perc

1964 Johnson Campaign Ad
The most famous of all presidential campaign ads, Lyndon Johnson’s “Peace Little Girl (Daisy)” is based on the simple but stunning juxtaposition of a little girl picking petals off a flower with a countdown to a nuclear explosion. This was also the first time that a child was used in a campaign ad. (1:00)
his video segment from IdahoPTV's D4K shows how scientists used a CT scan of the actual mummy remains to find some evidence of how King Tut might have died when he was only 20. You can see a compound fracture in the young King's leg which might have led to a deadly infection. (1:17)
