Bioengineering at MIT: Building Bridges Between the Sciences, Engineering and Health Care (Part One
In Doug Lauffenburger’s view, MIT’s new bioengineering degree program is not merely justified, it is essential. Revolutionary changes in biological sciences—specifically, in molecular biology and genomics—have given scientists the means to understand and control both the building blocks and larger systems of
Imagining MIT: Designing a Campus for the Twenty-First Century
After viewing William Mitchell’s presentation, viewers may wish to apply to MIT, or at the very least, take a campus tour, to experience up close the architecture he describes. Mitchell’s talk -- drawn from his recent book, Imagining MIT-- first skims the history of MIT’s classical, industry-minded buildings, then f
Reflections on e-Design: The e-Studio Experience
The influence of digital media and information technology on architectural design education and practice is increasingly evident. The practice and learning of architecture is increasingly aided by and dependant on digital media. Digital technologies not only provide new production methods, but also expand our abilities to create, explore, manipulate and compose space. In contemporary design education, there is a continuous demand to deliver new skills in digital media and to rethink architectura

The University as Patron of Cutting Edge Architecture
William Mitchell opens this session by describing MIT as an “enormously critical place.” The Stata Center, during its design and construction, fed the campus “attitude of not taking anything for granted and rethinking premises.” So it’s no surprise that debate and some sparring ensue during this spirited panel.
The University as Patron of Cutting Edge Architecture
The opening of The Ray and Maria Stata Center, MIT’s latest innovative building, inspires this panel’s historical review of collegiate architecture projects. James Ackerman provides the longest lens, focusing first on the earliest, national trends, when buildings served as both residences and classrooms. In the 18th century
Placing Words: Symbols, Space, and the City
The evolution of architecture resembles nothing so much as the fleshing out and refinement of an organism, in William Mitchell’s condensed account. In pre-industrial times, architecture was “fundamentally skeleton and skin—a structure that protects and keeps out the weather.” The industrial era brought an incre
Is There a Black Architect in the House?
“If there is any kind of profession that’s gotten away with a kind of benign neglect of diversifying itself over the course of last 30 years, it’s architecture,” says Ted Landsmark. With one chart after another, he plots the dismal record of design schools, firms and professional associations in modifyin
High-Eco-Tech: Building Avant la Garde
There’s more than a little magic in Werner Sobek’s constructions, which balance aesthetics, architectural constraints and pathbreaking science to, in his words, “go beyond” nature’s own limits.
Sobek walks us through his portfolio of engineering feats, enabled by a worldwide architecture and engi
The backyards of Williamsburg's finest homes tell the story of a separate society. Author Mike Olmert reads the architecture of outbuildings.
'Impact: Earth!' simulator shows effects of asteroid hit
Purdue University has unveiled ''Impact: Earth!'' a new website that allows anyone to calculate the potential damage a comet or asteroid would cause if it hit the Earth. The interactive website is scientifically accurate enough to be used by homeland security and NASA, but user-friendly and visual enough for elementary school students, said Jay Melosh, the distinguished professor of earth and atmospheric sciences and physics at Purdue who led the creation of the impact effects calculator. http:/
An Introduction to Computational Multiphysics: Motivations for Triple-M Modeling
Modern science is increasingly faced with problems of ever greater complexity, straddling across the traditional disciplinary boundaries between physics, chemistry, material science and biology. Computational science is responding to this challenge with a steadfast development of innovative modeling techniques, designed in such a way as to offer an optimal handling of the information transfer procedures connecting the different scales/levels involved in the quantitative description of the aforem
GRCC & Lawrence Technology University Form Partnership
