Battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas - CSA tribute (Heritage not Hatred)
The battle at Pea Ridge, Arkansas is shown from the Confederate viewpoint. Basically a slide show with music narration. May be too intense for younger students. A map of the battle location would help students. Also, the fact they mention the battle was with Abe Lincoln's men instead of the United States of America is worth noting.
A CAVE-Interface in CAAD-Education
The so called "CAVE-interface" is a very interesting and thrilling development for architects! It supports a better illusion of space by exposing almost a 270? view of a computer model than the 60? which can be viewed on an ordinary computer screen. At the Lund University we have got the possibility to experiment with a CAVE-installation, using it in research and the education of CAAD. The technique and two experiments are discribed. The possibilities are discussed and some problems and question

Mass vs. Weight: Stretching Mass
In this video, an astronaut on board the International Space Station demonstrates weightlessness by comparing two water bags tethered to a line by stretchable bands. Despite the fact that the two bags have very different masses (one is full; one is empty) neither experiences a gravitational force, as evidenced by the lack of "stretch" in the connecting tethers.This media asset is from the Mass vs. Weight series produced by the Teaching From Space Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
Behavior-based Computational Design Methodologies: Integrative processes for force defined material
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati

Digital Visualization in the Teaching of Cognitive Visualization
Professional design offices claim that our graduates have difficulties with their free-hand perspective drawing skills. This fact, which has become obvious over the last 5 years, is parallel to a clear tendency towards the use of 3-dimensional digital imagery in the projects of our students. Frequently, faculty tends to blame the computer for the shortcomings of our students in the use of traditional media, yet there is no clear evidence on the source of the blame. At a more fundamental level, t
