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

In the Wake of Economic Reform: New Prospects for a National Building State
  Has economic reform run its course? What potential remains for the resumption of nation building progress? Contrary to expectations Canberra emerges from 20 years of neo-liberalism with disciplined government, ample revenues, an effective regulative apparatus and – perhaps – the capacity for government to steer the economy towards a brighter future. In this lecture, Professor Pusey weighs these prospects against the negative impacts of neo-liberalism on our institutions and th

1.6.2 Education

Education is obviously one of the crucial dimensions in any attempt to develop a future European identity or at least more understanding and convergence among Europeans. If the school made the nation, it should also be a key factor in promoting Europeanness. Observers of the school scene in Europe acknowledge the existence of a growing sentiment of interest for European themes (institutions, politics, peoples, languages). Furthermore, the EU-based exchange programmes have recognised the impor

Around 1919 & in Mexico City
Mexico furnished the era of social and cultural change that started ‘right around 1910’ with its first popular revolution. By 1919 Mexico City had become a refuge for the world’s radicals. To a despairing world, it offered a unique site to safely experiment with all sorts of enchantments.

Divided We Stand: Political Reflections on the Federal Experiment
Was the federation of the six Australian colonies into a Commonwealth of Australia really such a good idea? What were the alternatives? Might there have been a better way of doing things? The hard and brutal fact is that the Federation in the end was a political compromise; it was a product of some ferocious horse-trading and Canberra is its monument. This lecture looks at the politics - as distinct from the legal and financial aspects - of Australia's federal arrangements. How the politica

Does China Play By Our Rules And How Much Does It Matter
The arrest of Rio Tinto executive Stern Hu, and more recently China's cancellation of a ministerial visit over Canberra's decision to grant a visa to Uighur figurehead Rebiya Kadeer has put Australia-China relations sharply in focus. Relations between these key trading partners appears rocky at a time many would have envisioned ties to be getting warmer. China's behaviour has prompted many to look at China's internal politics and rule of law, as well as the price paid for dealing with China and
