Enterprise Physics 101 Typically I entitle my seminar material “Enterprise Physics 101” for several reasons but basically, the more I think about Enterprise Architecture, the more I am convinced it is all Physics. Nothing is happening by accident. I am not talking about short term issues... I have a friend, Joe Rosenberger... Any way you look at it, if you don’t understand the laws of nature and you violate them, it doesn’t matter what your heart is or what you are thinking about, if you violate the laws of nature, you are going to experience pain... it is only a matter of time. So... in my seminar for the General Management folks, I was explaining that I was there to help them understand the laws of nature relative to Enterprises. Now, I call my seminars, “Enterprise Physics 101”. This whole discipline of Enterprise Architecture is only about 50 years old. The stress levels for General Management tend to be rather high! “Chief! General Management does have a point however! Enterprise Physics 101 Enterprise Physics 101
Enterprisearchitectuur Enterprisearchitectuur Enterprise Architecture Model uit 1989 van het Amerikaanse National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) dat de gelaagdheid van de architecturen laat zien, en de wisselwerking tussen de lagen[1] Enterprisearchitectuur (EA) (Engels: Enterprise Architecture) is een jong vakgebied tussen bedrijfskunde, informatiekunde en informatica, dat als doel heeft ervoor te zorgen dat een organisatie zich in al haar geledingen in de gewenste richting ontwikkelt. Overzicht[bewerken] Het woord "enterprisearchitectuur" kan betrekking hebben op: Om te voorkomen dat de mensen die zich bezighouden met de organisatie-inrichting langs elkaar heen werken, maken enterprisearchitecten een beschrijving van de gewenste situatie. Deze beschrijving bestaat uit richtinggevende afspraken en tekeningen en beschrijft de gewenste situatie vanuit de verschillende invalshoeken. Er zijn verschillende enterprisearchitectuur raamwerken waarin standaardgezichtspunten zijn vastgelegd. Definities[bewerken] (Prof. dr.

Voronoi From 3d Curves Voronoi From 3d Curves Recently I have been experimenting with generating 3D voronoi structures from points arrayed along curves. The voronoi cells follow the curve and define a continuous space around the curve. Essentially the voronoi is generating surfaces that define the space that falls between these knot like curves. Because of the density of the points along the curve these interesting surfaces are generated that are reminiscent of minimal surfaces.
Gadamer's Aesthetics Gadamer's Aesthetics 1. Art as Interlocutor Gadamer's aesthetics fosters an attentiveness towards the mystery of the given and its unexpected folds of meaningfulness. Gadamer's arguments are varied, ushering the reader towards an aesthetic attentiveness rather than making iconoclastic declarations about what the aesthetic is. They embrace close readings of the poets Rilke and Celan as well as broad strategic manoeuvres which defend the cognitive status of aesthetic and hermeneutical judgements. Gadamer insists that a picture or image that is worthy of being called a work of art, has the power to affect us immediately. Gadamer's aesthetics is strictly anti-Kantian. Gadamer's opposition to aesthetic idealism is supported by the claim that art “cannot be satisfactorily translated in terms of conceptual knowledge” (RB 69). First: Gadamer's conceives art as presentational (darstellen) rather than representational (vorstellen). 2. In The Relevance of the Beautiful Gadamer elucidates substance as follows. 3. 4. 5.

Urban planning Urban planning designs settlements, from the smallest towns to the largest cities. Shown here is Hong Kong from Western District overlooking Kowloon, across Victoria Harbour. Urban planning (urban, city, and town planning) is a technical and political process concerned with the use of land and design of the urban environment, including transportation networks, to guide and ensure the orderly development of settlements and communities. It concerns itself with research and analysis, strategic thinking, architecture, urban design, public consultation, policy recommendations, implementation and management.[1] A plan can take a variety of forms including strategic plans, comprehensive plans, neighborhood plans, regulatory and incentive strategies, or historic preservation plans. Planners are often also responsible for enforcing the chosen policies. History[edit] Many Central American civilizations also planned their cities, including sewage systems and running water.

Connecting Two Continents Ultimate Challenge Artist's rendering of concept for the Bering Strait bridge. The Bering Strait was last crossed by humans 20,000 years ago during the ice age, when ice formed a bridge between North America and Asia. Today, 47 miles and some of the harshest ocean and arctic conditions separate the two continents. However, there are many who believe there would be great economical, sociological, and political value in connecting the two land masses by bridge or tunnel. Imagine being able to travel from London to Moscow to Washington, DC, all over land. However, despite the potential benefits, there have yet to be any serious attempts to put these concepts into reality. Climatic, Geologic, and Geographic Challenges The Bering Strait lies just south of the Arctic Circle and is subject to long, dark winters and extreme weather [average winter lows of −20 °C (−4 °F) with extreme lows approaching −50 °C (−58 °F)] and high winds. The region is marked by frequent and sometimes large-magnitude earthquakes. Connecting Two Continents Ultimate Challenge
3D Printed Architecture

The European Space Agency (ESA) is currently exploring the possibility of establishing a permanent lunar base with the aid of 3D printing technology. The space agency and Foster + Partners, the London-based architecture firm that worked closely with the agency in the exploration of the project, have released a video outlining how they envision a future mission to construct a moonbase may unfold. Whilst the idea of a frontier settlement on Mars has captured the imagination of the general public, establishing a base on the Moon would be a much more attainable prospect and could even serve as a proving ground for a mission to the Red Planet. For mankind to establish a permanent outpost beyond low-Earth orbit, certain safeguards are required to protect us from the harsh conditions that prevail beyond the defensive shield of our planet's atmosphere. The process of transforming the "lunar" material into a usable building block began by mixing the basaltic rock with magnesium oxide. Source: ESA ESA explores the concept of a 3D-printed moonbase
Following our recent report of a Chinese company printing 10 houses in a day, the potential for architects to essentially click-and-print complex large-scale projects on a regular basis has moved a step closer to reality. This week, the UK's Loughborough University announced a deal with construction company Skanska and architecture firm Foster + Partners to develop and commercialize 3D concrete printing. View all The researchers at Loughborough's School of Civil and Building Engineering have been developing 3D concrete printing technology with a view to commercialization for seven years now, and have refined their technique to a system that comprises a gantry and robotic arm – the latter now in its second generation of development. Much like Andrey Rudenko's 3D concrete printer, Loughborough's device extrudes cement-based mortar under very precise computer control into layers, in order to create building components, which are then joined together.

These buildings were created with a 3D printer It might not exactly sound appealing to live in, but a Chinese company has constructed two buildings using a 3D printer that recycles industrial waste to form new building material. Shanghai-based Winsun has been showing off the two neighboring projects, one an 1100-square-meter villa, the other a 6-story residential block, in the Chinese city of Suzhou. The residential block is the world’s tallest 3D-printed building, according to the company. It took Winsun a day to print out one level of the residential block, and then five more to put the level together. Michael Kan Winsun was founded in 2002, and specializes in 3D printers designed for construction. The company’s printers are 6.6 meters tall, and work by secreting layers of construction material on top each other to form densely packed building blocks. Winsun is promoting the printers as an environmentally friendly technology, given that the ink can be made from recycled building materials.
