summary Improved adherence to hand hygiene (hand washing or use of alcohol-based hand rubs) can significantly reduce the transmission of multi-drug resistant organisms and prevent many healthcare associated infections. This paper describes a technological intervention with sensing and reminding mechanisms for hand hygiene adherence in a smart patient room.

summary Vertical development of flexible domestic programs in surfaces, interstices or grounds. The studio explores several possibilities on coupling, adherence, or hybridation as a method of strategies of urban occupation and urban preexistences. The main subject centers its intentions on sustentation of an architectonic device and evaluates in them the conditions to implement a program domestic servant of extreme survival. Its focuses in the development of structural systems and process of adaptation and in the construction of dwellings devices with transformable components and technical details brought from them specially characteristics in operative furniture as an articulator of the house daily use.

title Shape recognition in three dimensions
source Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 19 : 585-603
summary The subshape recognition problem for three-dimensional shapes under linear transformations is considered. The problem is analysed in a series of cases, some that provide a determinate number of solutions and others that have indeterminately many solutions. Procedures for its solution for general shapes are developed. Difficulties posed by strict adherence to rational transformations are examined. As a corollary, an outline of a procedure for determining the symmetries of a shape is presented. Subject

title A Design Gallery System: Prototype and Evaluation

summary Designers work by creating alternatives. Current design media restrict this practice through their near-universal adherence to a single-state document model. We describe the implementation of an online gallery system built as part of a research program to understand new media types for working with design alternatives in parametric modeling. The online gallery supports multiple commercially available parametric modelers. A user study shows a significant difference between two modes of gallery operation and a qualitative study describes user patterns in using the online gallery system.

title Appropriate Collectives: A Contemporary Structure For Collaborative Working
source Timmermans, Harry (Ed.), Sixth Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning - Part one: Architecture Proceedings Avegoor, the Netherlands), 2002
summary This paper attempts to illustrate the importance of the conceptual initiative in the design process and how, through the development of a poetic narrative, it can inform the process of creative design andmanufacture. The argument outlined proposes the adoption of a poetic narrative as a mechanism for defining and clarifying the designers’ intention with the use of metaphorical associations advocated as ameans of exploiting our innate ability for intuitive extrapolation. Our approach gives emphasis to the conceptual corollary or intellectual process that underpins all considered design work and challenges the traditionally accepted methods of project development where this phase of the process is seen as having a pre-prescribed beginning and end. The paper is also intended as a statement of intent that celebrates the unique nature of our interdisciplinary working practices and, as a contextualisingdocument that posits a realistic and contemporary vision for the future of collaborative endeavours. We illustrate how, through the adherence to a philosophy of creative realism and by the establishment of legitimate, ephemeral collectives; we can effectively instigate and address opportunities in many areas at any given time. In the paper we actively promote an expansive and creative engagement with the dynamics of project inception, development and control as a means of realising our collective aspirations and of ensuring project ownership in the widest sense. The paper discusses creatively critical architectural and new media projects that attempt to subvert a number of modern orthodoxies bysupplanting them with an affective internal logic.
