Representing the Aesthetics of Richard Meier?s Houses Using Building Information Modeling
Beyond its widespread use for representing technical aspects and matters of building and construction science, Building information modeling (BIM) can be used to represent architectural relationships and rules drawn from aesthetic theory. This research suggests that BIM provides not only vocabulary but also syntactical tools that can be used to capture an architectural language. In a case study using Richard Meier?s language for single-family detached houses, a BIM template has been devised to r

@Google Presents Michael Nielsen: Reinventing Discovery
"In Reinventing Discovery, Michael Nielsen argues that we are living at the dawn of the most dramatic change in science in more than 300 years. This change is being driven by powerful new cognitive tools, enabled by the internet, which are greatly accelerating scientific discovery. There are many books about how the internet is changing business or the workplace or government. But this is the first book about something much more fundamental: how the internet is transforming the nature of our col

4 The celebrity persona and the celebrity text

It has been emphasised that we can only know stars through media texts (Dyer, 1998) and this can be extended to seeing celebrities themselves as texts, though for celebrities of any longevity we would certainly have to consider them as large, complex and modulating ones. This section will look at how we might go about reading such a text. There is a distinction between the ‘real’ person and a persona presented in the public arena. One pervasive feature of the ‘large celebrity text’ is

What is the interplay between an event and its "frames"? What is special and distinctive about stage events? How and why do contemporary dramatists turn back in time for their settings, models, and materials? How do they play with this material to create performance pieces of importance and delight for modern audiences? How do they create distinct, fresh perspectives using the stage in an era of mass and multi-media? What is the implied audience for these plays, and how does that clash or coinci

5.5 Nurses, district nurses and midwives

While access to GPs and outpatient services was growing, access to nursing care was expanding in some sectors and declining in others. The numbers of trained professional nurses who were employed in wealthy households to care for seriously ill family members fell in the first decades of the twentieth century. These nurses stayed in the patient's home, carrying out the doctor's instructions, monitoring the patient's condition and providing general care – making beds, bathing the patient, giv

1.2.8 Caroline

Caroline’s experience was rather different. She was brought face to face with death when she was involved in a fatal car accident. Her friend who was driving at the time was killed outright whilst Caroline escaped unhurt. She found the reality of this difficult to assimilate and felt a sense of guilt.

For a long time after the accident – several months – I kept replaying it over and over again in my mind and
