  • Olgyay, Victor W. (Victor Wayne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
    Home is an elusive concept. In one manner it is highly specific and individual in its definition, and in other aspects it is ubiquitous, present in our every act. In this thesis I explore several possible definitions of ...
  • Sclaroff, Stanley Edward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
  • Friedman, Ben Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1980)
  • Miller, Christopher M., M. Arch. (Christopher Michael). Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Housing today has little do with architecture. Design is a currency of services, while housing today is intensively packaged as a consumer good. It is packaged with land as speculative real-estate, and bundled abstractly ...
  • Bagley, Saurabh, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Cities grow and with it urban form, unique to each, keeps evolving. Delhi can be perceived as having a poly centric, poly-nodal, radial city structure and a circumferential and partly sectoral form. World over, cities have ...
  • Kaminski-Coughlin, Ian Perry (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Victor Gruen's reliance on architecture of consumer consumption to construct the "crystallization points" of social, cultural life in the suburbs has failed. We see through history the decline of architectural quality and ...
  • Troukens, Philippe, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    The work environment has experienced tremendous change in the past few decades. The need for global communication, enabled by technology, has been the prime catalyst to transform the traditional demand for office space ...
  • Hanna, Karim M. (Karim Magdy), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is physically and psychologically isolated from its surroundings. It is an introverted experience. To the public, MIT is hidden under a shroud of invisibility. The goal of this ...
  • Choi, Joshua (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis presents a system that uses games. It allows people to participate in the process of designing an architectural space. The site for the design project of this experimental methodology is a courtyard on MIT ...
  • Radoman, Slobodan, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The largest lake in the Balkans, the largest bird "airport" in Europe, multinational, protected under the Ramsar Convention, a candidate for the UNESCO transboundary biosphere enlisting, the Skadar Lake is yet, economically ...
  • Su, Po-An (Po-An Leo) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Secondary frequency regulation is a necessary electric grid ancillary service that balances electric power system supply and demand on short time intervals of seconds to minutes. Commercial HVAC chillers may be well ...
  • Botero, Maria Antónia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This design project was an experimental case study to establish a viable, reduced-size typological alternative for single-family housing as a potential vehicle for the densification of the urban suburbs. Through demographic ...
  • Ponti Walton, Liliana Mirkovic (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Streissguth, Daniel M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1949)
  • Hernández Merchan, Carlos Henrique (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987)
    This thesis has the purpose of describing the meaning and applications of deployable structures (making emphasis in the scissor-hinged and sliding mechanisms.) and the development of new geometries, details, and mechanisms ...
  • Giesecke, Ken, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    My thesis is an exploration of design methods and tools using origami as a vehicle to test their usefulness and coming to terms with their limitations. I have taken my fascination with a particular development in origami ...
  • Wolfson, Michael A. (Michael Alan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1990)
    Phoenix Arizona is a valley in which the temperature rises above 100 F for over a hundred days a year, with an average of 300 days of sunshine. The Architectural form does not reflect such a climate. Phoenix has been labeled ...
  • Richard, Paul N. (Paul Normand) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
    The focus of this thesis is the relationship between the natural landscape and the architecture of northern New Mexico. Through the design of a home and work-related out-buildings elements of reference are used to preserve ...
  • Xing, Hai-Yun Helen, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Desiccant dehumidification has been given increasing interest in the air conditioning industry. Compared with conventional vapor compression air conditioning systems, desiccant dehumidification saves energy by separating ...
  • Saslaw, Ellen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1987)
    What an architect does, designing, is a design act and not the making of an object, a design. A design act is an intentional act about built use. We give reasons for intentional acts and are responsible for knowing that ...
