#Tiny Living [#geekgirl]

“Chris Tack made seven trips to Goodwill to get rid of his stuff, before moving into the 140-square-foot home he and his wife Malissa Tack designed and built. Constructed on a trailer bed and parked in Snohomish, Washington, the house is more than enough space for them, the couple says. And one advantage of a home on wheels, the 29-year-olds say, is that you can always move.”

biome Symposium 2012 :: Talks, Paper Presentations and more …18th Aug #Sydney Uni #architecture #design #biology #biome #geekgirl

18 August 2012 :: Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning,  University of Sydney

biome is a cluster of researchers, practitioners and artists investigating natural paradigms as a language shared in biology, mathematics, music, behavioural studies, engineering, interaction design and architecture. Digital derivations of biological systems, biomimetics, are increasingly informing research in a diverse range of disciplines. The biome Symposium engages in conversations that explore a mathematical language (code, script, parameter, algorithm) as a natural paradigm, and transfers of this language into and out of the diverse fields of biology, mathematics, music, behavioural studies, engineering, interaction design and architecture.
