“The future is not somewhere we go” “We are shaping the future through our choices and actions. We need a whole-brain approach to the future, not just a linear approach. It’s about balance.” Seek Risks and Uncover Opportunities. In The Trend Management Toolkit, the term “global macro vs. local micro” is used to separate overarching trends, also called Megatrends, […]


LEF and Soviet Art


When Jonathan Goldman arrived for work in June 2006 at LinkedIn, the business networking site, the place still felt like a start-up. The company had just under 8 million accounts, and the number was growing quickly as existing members invited their friends and colleagues to join. But users weren’t seeking out connections with the people […]

The Yale Architectural Journal’s latest edition, titled “Money,” discusses the controversial role of money in […]


There is a lot of buzz about data-driven design, but very little agreement about what data-driven design really means. Even deciding how to define data is difficult for teams with spotty access to data within their organizations, uneven understanding, and little shared language. For any site or app, it’s standard practice to have analytics, A/B tests, surveys, intercepts, […]


Everyone produces a long data trail as part of their work. Emails, calendar appointments, building information models (BIMs), meeting minutes, and issue trackers. While we use this data in the moment, we rarely take the time to look back and learn from the data we produce. Knowing the pulse of active projects as they relate to […]


Complexity is no longer an impediment but rather an opportunity, he writes on his website. And we see this embodied in his work, which is full of fine lines and curves and intricate patterns and shapes that look almost alien. The complexity of the result wowed people who saw it in person. Hansmeyer tells Gizmag […]


Nicomachean Ethics By Aristotle Written 350 B.C.E Translated by W. D. Ross Book VI 6 Scientific knowledge is judgement about things that are universal and necessary, and the conclusions of demonstration, and all scientific knowledge, follow from first principles (for scientific knowledge involves apprehension of a rational ground). This being so, the first principle from which what is scientifically […]


La Arquitectura y las Tecnologías tienen una relación con beneficios recíprocos. Es cierto que existen resistencias a ambos lados, pero no del todo consistentes. Quizás el Teorema de Gödel nos ilustre mejor este convulsionado escenario Comentario de Gustavo Piñeyro en Gaussianos. Todos los argumentos “gödelianos” (o “turingianos”, si se me permite el término) que intentan demostrar que […]


Once it was all started with 2D model, but now with the time it has been upgraded to 5D. From 2D drawing, we made 3D model and coordinate with them. Then we use the coordination-caliber quantities from takeoff for the 4D schedule and the 5D. It is a mathematical process. If a designer have the […]
