Fostering computational thinking through collaborative game-based learning
Algorithms are more and more pervading our everyday life: from automatic checkouts in supermarkets and e-banking to booking a flight online. Understanding an algorithmic solution to a problem is a very relevant activity ...
'Imag(in)ing Revolutionary Evolution in Apes and Humans in the 1920s: The Ages of Life Sculptures at the Darwin Museum, Moscow'.
The Darwin Museum in Moscow was, from its foundation in 1907, committed to using artworks to support stories of evolution. Nationalized in 1917 as an adjunct of Moscow State University, the museum remained under the direction ...
Improving Building Energy Efficiency through Measurement of Building Physics Properties Using Dynamic Heating Tests
Buildings contribute to nearly 30% of global carbon dioxide emissions, making a significant impact on climate change. Despite advanced design methods, such as those based on dynamic simulation tools, a significant discrepancy ...
Lessons learnt from design, off-site construction and performance analysis of deep energy retrofit of residential buildings
The article introduces the process of deep energy retrofit carried out on a residential building in the UK, using a ‘TCosy’ approach in which the existing building is completely surrounded by a new thermal envelope. It ...
A series of eight sculptures made of laser-cut plywood and cor-ten steel exhibited and commissioned in England and Australia exploring and honing a visual/spatial language of emergence, relationship and becoming, an interplay ...
Human and data-driven design fictions: : Entering the near-future zone
Modelling Computational Fluid Dynamics with Swarm Behaviour
(International Building Performance Association (IBPSA), 2018-09-11)
The paper looks at replacing the current top-down approach to modelling, predominantly used in dynamic simulation tools, with a nature inspired bottom-up approach based on principles of swarming. Computational fluid dynamics ...
Non-human Intention and Meaning-Making: An Ecological Theory
Social robots have the potential to problematize many attributes that have previously been considered, in philosophical discourse, to be unique to human beings. Thus, if one construes the explicit programming of robots as ...
Modeclix. The additively manufactured adaptable textile
Creating flexible materials using additive manufacturing techniques continues to be both challenging and rewarding. Our research project, Modeclix addresses the challenges through combining both traditional construction ...
The poster session as fusing theory and practice in art and design education: : Exhibiting an occluded genre
While the academic poster has been used extensively in the sciences, its particular pertinence in art and design education remains unrecognized. Posters (outputs) and the poster sessions that accompany them (processes) ...
