The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877
This course explores the causes, course, and consequences of the American Civil War, from the 1840s to 1877. The primary goal of the course is to understand the multiple meanings of a transforming event in American history. Those meanings may be defined in many ways: national, sectional, racial, constitutional, individual, social, intellectual, or moral. Four broad themes are closely examined: the crisis of union and disunion in an expanding republic; slavery, race, and emancipation as national
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.
