Gravity Overview - Free Science Video by Brightstorm
All objects with mass attract and are attracted by all other objects with mass because of a force called gravity. The strength of gravity is proportional to the mass of the object. We are pulled to the Earth by it's gravitational forces but we also pull the earth towards us. Because we are much less massive than than the Earth, our gravitational pull is not strong enough to have any affect on it. Gravity pulls us towards Earth such that we accelerate at 9.8 m/s^2. &n

A Design Methodological Framework for Interactive Architecture
Interactive architecture is a fairly recent phenomenon enabled through new materials and technologies. Through experimentation architects are coping with questions of changeability, adaptability, and interaction. However, there are no comprehensive design methods to support this type of architecture. In this paper we aim to bring together methods that can support the design of interactive architecture. The methods are ordered in a methodological framework that provides an overview of possible ap
