Fire In The Library Fire In The Mind Dr. Zhensu She And Tobey Crockett Part One

Dr. She discusses the potential for evolution within social structures, determined by an eastern approach of chi, using comparison between social structures and organisms occurring in nature. Correlations between chi fields and social structures are utilized in explaining harmony within organisms to achieve an optimal state. A student initiates discussion regarding Eastern versus Western social hierarchies and norms. Dr. She discusses the universal law of chi interactions, the cultivation and macroscopic conditions. Another student initiates a discussion regarding various types of social relationships and their specific types of exchanges of energy. Dr. She, Crockett and students discuss models of social interaction and different types of chi.

Subclip

Students pose the question of various types of relationships and how they would impact varied types of exchanges of energy, specifically romantic relationships. This encourages a discussion about the universal law of interaction, the impact of levels of awareness within types of love and the changes in concepts of love throughout history. Further discussion by Dr. She promotes the idea of higher consciousness of the world, the various stages of chi and the cultivation of the intention of an individual’s chi.


Sarah Graham Investigations into Urbanism and Architecture-clip_1292

Subclip

Graham discusses an open-concept, open-structured building. She discusses land art as an intervention that can transform a landscape. She discusses a project in Zurich which sought to create new definitions for community, a synthesis of living types, and proposals for alternative energy within a town center.


April Greiman

April 3, 1996 |
Introduction by: ,

Michael Rotondi, Michael Dobry and Tim Durfee introduce April Greiman as the speaker. April Greiman presents her work, including several print, web, video and CD-Rom designs and collaborations with architects. Greiman explains the projects as part of different categories that deal with color and energy, the four elements, light, transparency, language and the unfolding of technology in the design process.

Subclip

David Haberman leads a discussion on the relationship of markets, economics and hydrogen production. He examines the design considerations and the long-term economic factors related to the adoption of hydrogen fuels. Haberman concludes with a look at the opportunities for planners and architects to implement new energy technologies and infrastructures internationally.

Subclip

Steven Strong lectures on solar technologies. He begins with a discussion of his early engineering days on the Alaskan oil pipeline. He discusses the creation of autonomous power systems for emergency shelters along the pipe-route and his role in monitoring and calculating the energy usage. This lead to his focus on saving energy rather than producing. He then presents several of his first solar projects.

Kwinter begins by identifying two Copernican revolutions that have changed our consciousness of the world. The first is the hypothesis of continental drift and plate tectonics which introduced new understandings of energy flows. The second is the proliforation of imagery of the Earth from space, revealing the complexity and nuance of the Earth. His next argument involves linear and nonlinear systems. In a linear system the behavior of the whole is the sum of the parts. Nonlinear systems exhibit behavior where the whole is not the sum of its parts, rather, the primary behaviors exhibit properties from the interactions between the parts. Finally, Kwinter presents an overview of the work of biologist Conrad Waddington. Waddington was the first to investigate soft systems. He identified the epigenetic systems, which describe how form emerges from a homogeneous landscape.
