  • 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 ...
  • Wu, Yi-ling (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
    This thesis aims at establishing a set of rules for the design of a house type in Boston's Back Bay. The theory of which this study is based on is built-form theory which undertake the morphological development of the ...
  • Mein, Michel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1983)
  • Keast, Jeffrey David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
    A prototype system for concurrent printing and scanning of documents has been constructed. By taking a personal computer ink-jet printer and modifying it to include a line-scan sensor, major benefits are derived. Both ...
  • Eichenberger, Kurt Frederick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
    The design and building process of Dr. Henry Chapman Mercer is explored for its relationship to vernacular design. The vehicle for this exploration is 'Fonthill,' the home of Dr. Mercer constructed by him in 1908. Complete ...
  • Fogarty, Dennis James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1975)
  • Salomon, Gitta B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
    Electronic publishing has been established as a unique means for providing information in an interactive and personalized manner. Although scholarly journals have been published electronically, large circulation magazines ...
  • Sparks, Devon D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The proliferation of consumer smartphones has offered new opportunities for environmental sensing and mobile computation. Recent smartphone models - equipped with GPS trackers, accelerometers, megapixel cameras and rich ...
  • Kollin, Joel S. (Joel Steven) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988)
  • Tayar, Memduh Ali (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
    The objective of this thesis is to develop design approaches to structural optimization. In the example of three-dimensional grid structures, widely known as 'space frames', possible configurations are explored which ...
