The Dynamic Perception of Digitally Created Abstract Urban Space
Sigmund Freud in his book has used a City as a Metaphor of human Psyche. According to him City is not only images of the forms given us in the process of perception but all invisible and nowadays not existing forms (buildings) too. This way of representing historical sequences is possible thanks to ability of our mind to parallel consideration of different spatial meanings. Aldo Rossi called it - ?analogous City? ? a city which includes the existing buildings, buildings which was existed in the

Hybrid Design Environment
This paper discusses some preliminary ideas concerning new design environment or environment of designing. Main thesis of this paper is that process of creation and perception of architecture proceed between Real and Virtual. Architecture is created by analog and/or digital media. A the result we have the multitude and diversity of spaces and tools. Defining these terms is important for understanding a new process of design and a new space of designing. It gives us possibilities to create the ne

1.5.1 A ‘two currency’ world?

The introduction of the Euro threatens to have a significant impact on the international monetary economy as well as on the economies of the EU countries themselves. As yet this impact is not altogether clear since the Euro has only been operating for a few years. But certain trends are emerging and the possibilities are opening up. It is the main features of these trends that we concentrate upon in this section.

A preliminary point here is that the Euro exchange rate is not a policy va

Lecture 2, Unintended Consequences: Antonio del Pollaiuolo's Hercules and Deianira (c. 1475-80)
The Gallery's best known Renaissance painting shows Hercules about to shoot a centaur who is abducting his bride. Everybody admires the vigorous action and vast landscape. What about the subject? In the myth, she is rescued, but the shooting eventually leads to a horrible death for Hercules. We don't see that; does it help to know it?

1.2 Time, space, temperature and energy

The conventional view of the Universe is that, at the very instant of the Big Bang, the Universe came into being. There was no 'before' this instant since the Big Bang marked the creation of time. No location for this event can be specified since the Big Bang marked the creation of space. All that can be discussed are times after the Big Bang, and things that happen in the space created as a result of it. This is a difficult concept to visualize; but please bear with us and examine the conseq

An approach for the interoperation of web-distributed applications with a design model
This paper defines the data and inference requirements for the integration of analysis applications with a product model described by a CAD/CAE application. Application input conditions often require sets of complex data that may be considered views of a product model database. We introduce a method that is compatible with the STEP and PLIB product description standards to define an intermediate model that selects, extracts, and validates views of information from a product model to serve as inp

The Magic School Bus "Flexes Its Muscles" - Body Mechanics
In the TV show "FLEXES ITS MUSCLES," Ms Frizzle takes the bus (and class) to R.U. Humerus' extraordinary Body Shop for repairs -- but Ralphie seizes the opportunity to build a robot to do his chores. The class joins in and they discover how bones, joints and muscles work together to help us move. But they do the job a little too well, and the Ralphiebot starts to take over. Can Ralphie stop the robot before it's too late? (22:00)
