Expanded Polystyrene foam (EPS) is a chemically inert and 100% recyclable material that is lightweight and has a good compression strength per weight ratio; however, its current construction use is mostly limited to insulation or landfill. The key concept of this paper is to develop an EPS composite to create an ultra-lightweight long-span...

The main goal of this article is to provide a critical reflection on what computing may contribute to an open understanding of performance in architecture. We propose a phenomenological approach to computing since it combines several concepts concerning the user’s experience of space. In order to study the human movement in space, we will...

This paper proposes a complementary approach for the architectural design studio. By interpreting architecture by means of an interactive (dance) performance as design task it combines architectural theoretical examination with the implementation of new technologies and event realization. This design studio concept integrates scenography,...

Setting up a completely new architectural academic curriculum for a brand-new school of architecture. Elaborating, critical space within the new curriculum for the teaching and learning of ‘digital-technologies’ (DT) through the integration of them with its core subjects, rather than understanding the teaching/learning of such technologies as an...

Radial and mixed flow turbines which are an important component of a turbocharger consist essentially of a volute, a rotor and a diffuser. Vaneless volute turbines, which have reasonable performance and low cost, are the most used in turbochargers for automotive engines. Care has to be done in the design of the volute, whose function is to...

The purpose of this paper it to explore the concept of adding value by real estate and related performance indicators, and the way it is or could be applied in value-based design and management of buildings. The concept is being illustrated with research findings on hospital buildings, based on a literature review and ten interviews with CEOs...
