  • Costanza, David (David Nicholas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    I am designing a Case Study House to be sponsored by Royal Dutch Shell which utilizes the by-product of oil extraction, petroleum gas, to produce a zero waste, 100% petroleum based house. The motivation of the Case Study ...
  • Parker, Rodney Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976)
  • Lee, Chia Chieh (Chia Chieh Jessica) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    There is a total of more than 9700 convenient stores in Taiwan. In Taipei, the capital of the country, there is 1 convenient store in every 400 meters, which is equivalent to one convenient store in every 5 minutes. This ...
  • Wang, Yufei, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    The synthesis of forms is an interesting problem which has faced designers for years. So far, the only solution to this problem is to use the imagination of designers. Even though computers have been used in representing ...
  • Callahan, Mark A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1983)
    This thesis covers the design and implementation of a binocular display head-set akin to Dr . Ivan E. Sutherland's head-mounted display, but using several new technologies and new techniques in computer graphics: small ...
  • Patel, Sayjel Vijay (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    3D Sampling is introduced as a new spatial craft that can be applied to architectural design, akin to how sampling is applied in the field of electronic music. Through the development of 3-DJ, a prototype design software, ...
  • Davis, Lara K. (Lara Katherine) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This design-research thesis - The 4-Dimensional Masonry Construction - presents innovation in the design and construction of thin-shell tile vaulted structures. The core research contributions of this thesis are: #1 Testing ...
  • Stubbs, Sidney W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1961)
  • Steinberg, Marc J. (Marc Jonathan), 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    In 1959 professor of archeology Beno Rothenberg began investigating the production of copper in the Sinai desert and Aravah region of southern Israel. He discovered over 650 previously unknown ancient copper mining and ...
  • Yam, Hiu Lan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    150m2 - 40m2 - 60m3. Pencil Towers are slender pencil-like apartment buildings. They are commonly found in high-dense Asian cities such as Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore. Focusing on Hong Kong as the context of research, ...
  • Weil, Peggy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
    A technique of pictorially synthesizing facial imagery using optical videodiscs under computer control is described. Search, selection and averaging processes are performed on a catalogue of whole faces and facial features ...
  • Reed, Ronald Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1981)
    It is the opinion of this writer that the success or failure of a "place" or space as defined by architectural or urban design terms is linked not only to its physical boundaries and the reality of its elements and their ...
  • Stocker, Florian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
    Four fragments constitute the focus of analysis of this study; at the same time they are used as objects in the experimental set up of the thesis. This set up investigates the possibilities of a collage as a model for a ...
  • Wit, Andrew John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    As global populations continue toward higher levels of urban densification, sprawl has caused the United States to reach an un-sustainability low level of population density. The past six decades of sub-urbanization have ...
  • Segal, Andrew Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
  • Ansari, Amna (Amna K.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    America's symbols of governance, such as the ubiquitous state capitols and state capitol malls, are classically inspired European architecture and planning of reason and nature, adopted in America by Jefferson in 18th ...
  • Barr, MacDonald (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1957)
  • Richardson, James Rutherford (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012-03-01)
  • Roth, Curtis (Curtis A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis seeks to unpack the nature of ecology within architecture, not as a neutral science, but a legitimizing construct, building a future and transforming the ethics of the present towards very deliberate ideological ...
  • El-Zanfaly, Dina E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis proposes guidelines for designing kinetic architectural structures, in which rules based on shape grammars, are used for motion capturing and design. There is an increasing demand for adaptive architecture that ...
