What means might be developed to... More > provide these basic services relying primarily on local natural resources? Could these services create local jobs? This was the problem statement set out for the farming settlement of Fouché, a hamlet spread out along a main road running through Les Palmes district in the central/SW region of Haiti. Fouché lies on the coast about 10 miles west from Léogâne, the epicenter of the devastating January 12, 2010 earthquake.

More > of sectors including the nation’s mass transit and other transportation systems, banking and financial systems, factories, energy systems and the electric power grid, and telecommunications, which increasingly rely on a complex array of computer networks, including the public Internet. However, many of these systems and networks were not built and designed with security in mind. Therefore, our cyber infrastructure contains many holes, risks, and vulnerabilities that may enable an attacker to cause damage or disrupt cyber infrastructure operations. Threats to cyber infrastructure safety and security come from hackers, terrorists, criminal groups, and sophisticated organized crime groups; even nation-states and foreign intelligence services conduct cyber warfare.< Less

More > architecture as the source for innovation that condition contemporary built environments. We thus aim for systemic innovations as the basis of meaningful and relevant evolutions of both built environments and the practice of architecture. The focus in this graduate research studio is on energy systems as the basis of necessary and compelling transformations of urban architecture. This section will consider Embodied Energy, On-Site Energy Production, Thermally Active Surfaces, and Day-lighting Energy as primary systems and parameters that can direct integrated design innovations.< Less
