Dynamic Buildings: Customizing Structures for Human Comfort and Sustainability


By Gabe Dunsmith

Architecture students at Purdue University are kick-starting a bold new initiative to integrate people into the design and operation of buildings they inhabit.

Actually, looking back, I’m glad they didn’t. That would have been wasteful, and such destructive behavior really wasn’t as “cool” in their later years. The Who could still put on an incredible concert though.

As Simple, or Perhaps Complicated, as Flicking a Switch


You know what’s fun? Reminiscing about old, iconic commercials is fun. You’ve got your “Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner,” the California Raisins dancing across your screen, and some excessively persistent kid giving a limping and clearly frustrated “Mean Joe” Greene of the Pittsburgh Steelers a Coca-Cola in exchange for his sweaty, disgusting football jersey. Ahhhhhhhh, good times.
