Universities are entrusted with the increasingly important responsibility of creating, sharing, and fostering use of knowledge on behalf of society, and to that end, are the recipients of tremendous investments of time, money, space, authority and freedom. Universities have embraced this role in diverse fashions, varying by tradition, period, and discipline, but we now ask them to go further. As we progress ever more deeply into a networked age, our knowledge institutions are faced with concomitant opportunities. They are challenged by society to become a driving force to create and disseminate knowledge – using innovative, effective, and dynamic approaches – derived from and for the networked world.

ENTREVISTA: DISEÑO

Estudio Job está formado por una pareja de diseñadores reconvertidos en inventores del ‘design art’, objetos en ediciones limitadas que quieren difuminar el límite entre arte y diseño.

ANATXU ZABALBEASCOA

Llega a la entrevista con una hora de retraso, sin agobios ni excusas, como si llegara en punto. Eso sí, perfectamente perfumado: camisa blanca, traje negro y botines de charol. Job Smeets (Bélgica, 1970) sabe que es inteligente. De eso vive. Para disimular, suelta extravagancias. Su compañera, de vida y obra, Nynke Tynagel (Holanda, 1977) sabe que funciona mejor en el segundo plano y ahí se mantiene: bella y distante. Si lo hubieran ensayado, no les saldría mejor. Se han acostumbrado a combinar el lujo cosmopolita con las incertidumbres del planeta, de las que les gusta hablar. Trabajan en ese terreno escurridizo: han elegido ser rebeldes, pero exponen en galerías y viven como reyes. Creen que ya no es la coherencia, sino la contradicción, lo que define el mundo del diseño de hoy.

Cities in 3D Case Study: Fredericton, Canada


Cities and local governments around the world are beginning to realize that it takes more than a traditional website to get discovered. Millions of people around the world are touring the planet or searching for businesses through free geospatial tools like Google Earth and Google Maps. Imagery, terrain, and 3D models all help these virtual visitors to formulate a picture in their mind.

The City of Fredericton uses Google Earth for city planning and other official uses. They had access to 3D building data so when they learned about Google’s Cities in 3D Program they offered to contribute their data to Google in the hope that it might appear in Google Earth. In addition to Google Earth, 3D data contributed to Google is used to display 3D buildings in Google Maps, which will benefit anyone trying to find a specific location in the City. If you’re a city or local government, have access to 3D data, and would like to «get on the virtual map», we encourage you to learn more by visiting our Cities in 3D Program website.

America's Most Historic Prison
America's Most Historic Prison

Opened in 1829 as part of a controversial movement to change the behavior of inmates through «confinement in solitude with labor,» Eastern State Penitentiary quickly became one of the most expensive and most copied buildings in the young United States. It is estimated that more than 300 prisons worldwide are based on the Penitentiary’s wagon-wheel, or «radial» floor plan.

Some of America’s most notorious criminals were held in the Penitentiary’s vaulted, sky-lit cells, including bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone. After 142 years of consecutive use, Eastern State Penitentiary was completely abandoned in 1971, and now stands, a lost world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.
