Computational Environments with Multimodal Representations of Architectural Design Knowledge
This article discusses interaction between multimodal representations of architectural design knowledge, particularly focusing on relating explicit and implicit types of information. The aim of the presented research is to develop a computational environment that combines several modes of representation, including and integrating different forms of architectural design knowledge. Development of an interactive digital-models library and ontological model of architectural design factors are discus
Great Zoom out of Los Angeles, CA: The Hollywood Sign
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

ART 265-01, Pompeii: Toman Culture in Microcosm, Fall 2005
This course will examine the archaeological remains of the city of Pompeii and its environs, which were buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 C.E. The preservation of this area allows for an unparalleled opportunity to explore how the ancient Romans really lived and, most importantly, how Roman art and architecture was experienced and understood by its contemporary viewers. Students will be evaluated on their understanding of course content as well as their ability to make close observati
ART 231-01, History of Western Art I, Fall 2005
The objectives of the course are as follows: (1) to provide students with a comprehensive overview of major images, artists, and movements in Western art from Prehistory through the Middle Ages; (2) to integrate these images with the broader cultural history of the period; and (3) to develop visual and analytical skills appropriate to further study in Art History. This course is the first half of a year-long survey of Western Art and students are encouraged to continue with Art 232. Students are
ART 105-01, Beginning Painting, Fall 2005
This class is an opportunity to explore the possibilities of paint. You can expect to be immersed in certain fundamentals of material and technique including application, color, texture, scale and composition. But mostly you will be encouraged to experiment and have accidents. As Bacon implied, happy accidents can be a great source of strength and a catalyst for evolution in painting. You will find that the best way to create these conditions is to paint a lot. Here’s your opportunity to learn
ART 101-02, Drawing, Fall 2005
The class will provide the student with a working knowledge of traditional drawing materials and approaches. Additionally the instructor will use a variety of open-ended projects to expand the students’ drawing ability (vocabulary) and their ability to solve problems. Hopefully, through the class the student can understand better the role drawing can play in their life.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.
ART 305-01, Intermediate & Advanced Painting, Fall 2005
This class is an opportunity to customize your influences. It’s a chance to ilk out paths and options but also to experiment with making a body of work that stands on your own ideas (an experiment that helps you step outside of your boundaries is the most valuable one.) You’ll have many opportunities for such experiments this semester. I want to see you take risks and dare to make substantive changes in both paintings in progress and in your attitudes, ideas and explorations surrounding the
ART 323-01, Italian Renaissance Art, Fall 2005
Students will be introduced to the major artists, movements, and critical issues in Italian Renaissance Art. We will investigate the techniques, styles, contexts, imagery and the ways in which art was produced, displayed, and critically received. Other topics covered will include the role of the artist and patron in Renaissance Italy. Students will be exposed to current debates, controversies, and methodologies pertinent to art historical study. An important component of the course involves crit
ART 318-01, Greek Art and Architecture, Fall 2005
This course will survey the main periods and works of Greek art and architecture, employing a variety of interpretative strategies to the works. The goal of this study is to gain a better understanding of what motivated Greek artistic production and how the ancient Greeks interpreted and used those works.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.

21L.430 Popular Culture and Narrative: Literature, Comics, and Culture (MIT)
In this course, we will investigate popular culture and narrative by focusing on the relationship between literary texts and comics. Several questions shape the syllabus and provide a framework for approaching the course materials: How do familiar aspects of comics trace their origins to literary texts and broader cultural concerns? How have classic comics gone on to influence literary fiction? In what ways do contemporary graphic narratives bring a new kind of seriousness of purpose to comics,
Simultaneous Equations Concepts -- Elimination
This module teaches elimination as a means to solve simultaneous equations.
What Does "Class Action" Mean? The news of the Supreme Court decision on Walmart — declining to approve a massive lawsuit against an amazing company — was reported as if it amounted to some devastating blow to American life. Nonsense: the decision actually permits normalcy in economic development to proceed without a new round of destruction of wealth. Some lawyers might be sad, but it is great for the rest of us.

Embedded Rationality: A Unified Simulation Framework for Interactive Form Finding
This paper describes embedded rationality as a method for implicitly combining fabrication constraints into an interactive framework for conceptual design. While the concept of ?embedded rationality? has been previously discussed in the context of a parametric design environment, we employ this concept to present a novel framework for dynamic simulation as a method for interactive form-finding. By identifying categories of computational characteristics, we present a unified physics-solver that g
