This course, intended for both graduate and upper level undergraduate students, will focus on understanding of the basic molecular structural principles of biological materials. It will address the molecular structures of various materials of biological origin, such as several types of collagen, silk, spider silk, wool, hair, bones, shells, protein adhesives, GFP, and self-assembling peptides. It will also address molecular design of new biological materials applying the molecular structural pri

Islamic Architecture and Digital Databases
Epigraphy in Islamic architecture represented an indispensable element in its conceptual design and structure. Our research investigates this unique role, which epigraphy played in Islamic architecture as a tool singularizing this architecture and the sensuality it inspires inside a building while bestowing on it its particular identity. This how SADEPIG came to being: it is a virtual database regrouping all the information about the monumental epigraphy which date from the Sa?dian period in Mor

3.4 Understanding legal rules

We have seen that legislative bodies can change legal rules as policy makers initiate reforms, but this is not the only way in which legal rules develop. Courts also have a role in interpreting statutes according to legal principles, and their decisions (which are referred to as ‘case law’) must be taken into account before we can confidently state that a particular position is ‘the law’. Court decisions are also subject to appeal and review, so the law does not remain static. The fac

Teaching and Learning - Full Brainwash
We often speak of changes in design process due to an application of computers. But in my opinion we more often rather speak of lack of changes. Lets hope that some day we will be able to witness full integrity and compatibility of design process and tools applied in it. Quite possible such an integrity may occur in the cyberspace. Nevertheless before that could happen some changes within the teaching methods at faculties of architecture, where despite great numbers of computer equipment used, t
