  • Vaulot, Laélia Kim-Lan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Elastic gridshells are obtained by elastic deformation of an initially flat grid into a three-dimensional shell-like geometry and were first implemented in architecture in the 1970's. Their mechanical behaviour, which ...
  • Fund, Ariane Ida (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Inherently characterized by the interaction of geometry and forces, the unique nature of long span dome, shell, and membrane structures readily allows collaboration between architects and engineers in the examination of ...
  • Lee, Juney, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Skyscraper is a by-product of 19th century American industrialism. spirit, and disaster. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was a catastrophe that necessitated dense and rapid reconstruction, both of which the high-rise provided. ...

  • Prevendar, Nathaniel J. (Nathaniel Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Over the next quarter century the U.S. population will expand by 25 percent, an unprecedented steep and rapid increase that has already begun. The urban and suburban land area has been expanding to create a sprawling ...
  • Tao, Alice (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Over the past century, there have existed two major types of structural engineers. Some, like Robert Maillart, contributed greatly to the advancement of new forms. Others, such as Peter Rice, produced their most innovative ...
  • Wang, Jue, M.C.P. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The subject of "clean energy city" has attained increased attention in recent year. However, almost all studies to date about "clean energy" are either at the building scale or the regional scale and little touches the ...
  • Mothersill, Philippa (Philippa Jane) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We have an unconscious understanding of the meaning of different physical objects through our extensive interactions with them. Designers can extend and adapt pre-existing symbolic meanings through the design of these ...
