  • Xu, Xiaoran, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In the urban labyrinth of Fes el-Bali, artisans toil away passionately in their courtyard houses that, with the increasing density of the medina over the past century, have come to dominate the surrounding architectural ...
  • 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 ...
  • Garbis, Leonidia Maria (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The purpose of this study is to investigate the benefits of adding natural fiber tensile reinforcement to aerated concrete. Concrete is a great composite material which can be created in various proportions and with various ...
  • Huang, Yu Linlin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis project proposes a rapid visualization machine that can produce agile prototypes of simple architectural plans on a finite grid system. While various visualization systems to demonstrate instantaneous three ...
  • Gallagher, Justin (Justin R.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis seeks to re-engage the intimate connection between architecture and the minds of its inhabitants through design that addresses specific cognitive needs. Architecture fundamentally shares a connection with the ...
  • Skupniewicz, Henry George (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The history of computation owes a major debt to the traditional crafts, and the worlds of design and computation have been interlinked since the development of mechanical computing systems during the 19 th century. As ...
  • Granville, Alina (Alina T.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    While architecture inherently makes sound when people and the environment interact with it, architects seldom orchestrate a building to produce sound. This thesis proposes a sonic facade that turns an existing building ...
  • Mennel, Kimberly I. (Kimberly Irene) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis aims to bring the handicraft of knitting into the realm of architecture as a low-tech means of fabrication in a world of high-tech design. This thesis attempts to break knitting down into its most essential ...
  • Boonbanjerdsri, Kimberlee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Inspired by my final Studio IV project in 2010, the Capsule Hotel, and the growing demand for efficient housing due to overcrowding in developing cities, this thesis explores, examines and realizes the need for compact ...
  • Latortue, Cynthia (Cynthia Pascale) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Surface in the city is scarce. As a typical day in the city progresses, the inhabitants' surface demands transform. A children's playground goes unused at night, the valuable surface should be re-adapted for an alternative ...
  • Brunetto, Leah B. (Leah Beth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This study explores how the forms of urban landscapes influence and reflect physical and metaphorical journeys through a city. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the artist and researcher investigates the diverse landscapes ...
  • Fayyad, Iman S. (Iman Salam) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Water plays an integral role in mediating the natural environment, ecosystems and habitats, and in shaping our natural landscapes. Using water as a tool for form-finding in landscape design fosters a sense of awareness of ...
  • Ray, Crystal (Crystal Shannon) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Plug-in city has been explored by others through 3d renditions, however, their 3D rendition are subject to interpretation as its design and development progressed through modeling and a series of drawings by Peter Cook. ...
  • Yang, Yang, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This project is an art project and a science project. Traditional forms of art - music, dance, fashion - are integrated with new technologies - electronics and software - to create an item of clothing, or "wearable", which ...
  • Jordan, Alexander D. W. (Alexander David Weigert) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Structures that carry most of their load through the axial forces of tension or compression are more materially efficient than standard structures. However, they are not as straightforward to design since the forces in the ...
  • Deshmane, Anisha V (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The entertainment industry relies fairly heavily on computer-generated imagery to depict built environments in current films, video games, and other forms of simulated reality. These often involve highly complex geometries ...
  • Kim, Frederick (Frederick C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Architectural discourse on transparency has centered on the idea of layering spaces, light construction, and perceptions of different spatial relationships and has a long history from modernism to the present. This thesis ...
  • Manning, Kayla (Kayla C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Designing within the landscape, architects are often challenged with the dilemma of what to build and to what extent if anything. The natural environment offers an architecture of its own parameters and rules. Building ...
  • Clonts, Kelly A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Most schools in Sierra Leone are constructed using a standard design with little variation from building to building. They are relatively high-cost and have poor ventilation, lighting and thermal comfort. In January 2010, ...
  • Reder, Renee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Downtowns of small cities and towns are often overlooked when thinking of cultural and gathering spaces. Unlike a large city that usually has a vibrant historical and cultural history represented by clustering of museums, ...
