Fogel published the landmark paper "On the Organization of Intellect" which sparked the first endeavours into evolutionary computing. Dynamic Knowledge Repository for Parametric Design New Zealand, Wellington, Victoria University of Wellington JULY 2013, VS322 Te Aro Campus 20th - 21st: PARAMETRIC MODELLING + DESIGN PATTERNS 27th - 28th: PARAMETRIC MODELLING + DYNAMIC KNOWLEDGE REPOSITORY SPACES ARE LIMITED.

Media Park Ciudad Juarez \ SHINE Architecture Shelter for Juarez The spatial topology intends to generate a dichotomy in use: a sheltered space with inner uses and an upper skin working as open transversal spaces in a city in vicissitude. Media Park Ciudad Juarez, sketch courtesy SHINE Architecture The morphology was given by bioclimatic studies having as outcome a series of passive strategies for the extreme and complex weather of Ciudad Juarez. The cracks or gills in the roof allow in north natural daylight and controlled south diffuse light. In terms of temperature, the apertures are design to leave summer south winds to get in and be directed , as well as working all year long as overheat outputs.

DIY Sod Sofas: Recline in Real Green-Grass Lawn Loungers On a hot summer day, there is nothing like taking off your shoes or using sandals to expose your toes for a walk through a low garden or lawn.
