Why teachers drink Have you ever taught a lesson and thought you did a great job of it?

The digital architecture of tomorrow
This paper presents an ongoing research project about the development of the materials and fabrication techniques for a fundamentally new class of architectural composite. This type of composite, which is a representative example of an even broader class of smart architectural material, has the potential to change the design and function of an architectural structure or living environment. As of today, this kind of composite does not exist. Once completed, this will be the first technology on i

Res gestae Divi Augusti : fotogrammetria
This Italian website focusing on the Latin and Greek inscription known as "Res gestae Divi Augusti" (part of the "Monumentum Ancyranum") publishes a full catalogue of high definition pictures with some tools to improve readability. As part of the project, two sets of pictures separated by a decade will be published in an attempt to determine the degrade of the monumental inscription. Although entirely in Italian, the website is mainly a collection of pictures that can be easily browsed. The "Res

Intuitive and Effective Design of Periodic Symmetric Tiles
This paper presents a new approach for intuitive and effective design of periodic symmetric tiles. We observe that planar graphs can effectively represent symmetric tiles and graph drawing provides an intuitive paradigm for designing symmetric tiles. Moreover, based on our theoretical work to represent hexagonal symmetry by rectangular symmetry, we are able to present all symmetric tiles as graphs embedded on a torus and based on simple modulo operations. This approach enables us to develop a si
