You have the power to change your brain Scientists have discovered that the brain can reorganize itself when confronted with new challenges, even through adulthood. Based on this research, Lumosity's exercises are engineered to train a range of cognitive functions, from working memory to fluid intelligence. Scientifically demonstrated benefits Scientific studies have shown that Lumosity training can improve your ability to dynamically allocate attention, which sharpens memory and processing skills.
images Peter Guenzel words Riya Patel A former hydraulic power station in Wapping, east London was the setting for the 2012 graduate review – Icon's annual selection of promising design graduates from schools around the UK. The 14 projects were innovative studies in a range of practical and social issues; including a fictitious restaurant, a folding sewing machine, odour-absorbing clothes hangers and a new process for making furniture by wrapping wood with threads. Now home to the Wapping Project arts centre, run by director Jules Wright, the Victorian power station is still filled with the heavy-duty pumps and machinery of its heyday.

This forward thinking and flexible programme is part of a disciplinary suite embracing the increasingly trans-disciplinary activities of the design profession and contemporary creative practice, while concurrently allowing you to refine and enhance skills within lighting design and light art installations. At the outset of the programme you will develop and apply a range of research methods in redefining your own design practice and creative outlook. You will further develop specific skills for spatial lighting design and light art & projection which will inform and enable highly developed outcomes in your self-directed major project work. This will also allow you to collaborate and make professional contacts with practitioners from other areas, including Design & Digital Arts and those in the School of Engineering and Built Environment. You also have the option of taking an MA or MDes award, depending on whether you complete a dissertation or design project report in trimester 3.

In 2007, VELUX joined forces with Foster + Partners to develop a skylight system which is 100% modular, making it easy to specify, highly adaptable and comprehensive in detail. The result of this collaboration was the VELUX Modular Skylights system. VELUX Modular Skylights are factory produced to a range of standard sizes, which can be combined in limitless combinations for complete design flexibility. The installation method allows the same standard units to be installed in a variety of configurations including longlights, ridgelights and atria. The pultruded composite framing material and low energy glazing also offer thermal performance amongst the very best on the skylight market.
I assemble small collections, and I create little vignettes. I pin things to the wall, and I hang things on hooks. I have piles of tribal textiles stacked up on chairs and on floors; I leave these piles everywhere.
Possessing one of the most inventive minds of the 20th century, George Nelson was one of those rare people who can envision what isn’t there yet. Nelson described his creative abilities as a series of “zaps” – flashes of inspiration and clarity that he turned into innovative design ideas. One such “zap” came in 1942 when Nelson conceived the first-ever pedestrian shopping mall – now a ubiquitous feature of our architectural landscape – detailed in his “Grass on Main Street” article.
London has been an inspiring architectural design scene to which New Zealand-born, London-based architect William Tozer recently added a fascinating conversion of an industrial space into a wood and concrete-defined contemporary loft apartment. http://freshome.com
