Austerity - The History of a Dangerous Idea [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Mark Blyth | Governments have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts - austerity - to solve the financial crisis. Austerity however is a dangerous idea that has time and again led to low growth and income inequality.

ICAtect-II: a framework for the integration of building design tools
The development of a system capable of integrating a range of building design tools poses many challenges. Our framework for integrating design tools provides a structured approach, allowing individual parts to be developed independently. In this paper, we describe the overall framework and suggest a method for modeling and implementing each portion of the framework. Furthermore, we illustrate how such a system can integrate several design tools and be realized as a functional design system.
