Refreshing the Odour....... By John Cagliostro
eBook (ePub): $4.71
The book succinctly, accurately and humorously describes many and varied wilful meanderings beginning in central England and ending (often most) within Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. The same pages... More > also trace the author’s personal academic development from bird ringing, spotty teenager, via insect collecting undergraduate and flagrantly exploited post doctoral researcher, to the lofty heights of research professor in a post ’92 British university. A passion for both science and music has deliberately shaped the narrative on many occasions whence the author has paused to reflect upon the chaos and inconsistency that is evident within academia, the U.K. and the wider world beyond.

eBook (PDF): $25.00
A sequel to "Men of Manhattan", Albert Einstein: “Nobody expected me to lay golden eggs” is a new and different look at the man whose genius we often want to emulate. Although... More > this book recognizes his genius, it looks at it in a different light. Einstein, the not so good student, working in a patent office, developed his natural understanding of his world through an “out-of-the-box” curiosity among close friends and confidants, including his wife. His early career was unremarkable in the eyes of academia, and even after publication of his famous four papers in 1905, it was another four years before he was taken seriously as a scientist. We probably know him best for E=mc2, the so-called energy-mass equivalence formula, but much more is contained herein. Though this is not a rigorous mathematical treatment, we could not possibly know Einstein without a glimpse of his math.< Less

More > Professional world, this studio engaged the New Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Manhattan as a real client to propose how this organization and its architecture could evolve in the next generations to come. As contemporary society rapidly evolves and the Bowery neighborhood goes through a drastic transformation, the static nature of built architecture can be at odds with this current societal momentum. The intent of this studio was to propose new ways to allow the museum to grow and evolve with the neighborhood and to rethink the traditional boundaries of what constitutes a museum entity. Architecture that stays robust and relevant with society can allow a building to coexist with the generational forces that change neighborhoods.< Less
