Product Description The book Re-Coded: Studio Rocker introduces re-coding as a strategy for architectural production. The importance of code and coding for the architectural discourse and production is exemplified in works by the architects Peter Eisenman, Greg Lynn, and Karl Chu. In response to these works, Studio Rocker developed in nine projects a new code-based design dimension. De-coding and Re-coding are hereby comprehended as processes which equally inform architectural discourses and productions. Re-coded: Studio Rocker inquires in how far architecture and media always inform each other respectively. In vain of this question, the free play of symbols becomes the foundation for the material generation of form and space. Free from all material and perceptual constraints, particularly symbolic orders allow innovative material and perceptive realizations to emerge. Ingeborg RockerÕs introduction provides a theoretical context for the experimental work that follows. Each project is subsequently presented in detail through text and color graphics. The Book accompanied the exhibition Re-coded: Studio Rocker held at the Aedes Gallery East in Berlin 29.07.2005 Ð 15.09.2005. Foreword and Text: Ingeborg M. Rocker Concept and Design: Ingeborg M.

Manipulation We think we're the ones who control what we see, read, think and remember. But is that true? Who decides? And who should decide? This hour, TED speakers reveal just how easily we can be manipulated.

#443 Batteries This week on Science for the People we take a deep dive into modern batteries: how they work now and how they might work in the future. We speak with Gerbrand Ceder from UC Berkeley, about the most commonly used batteries today, how they work, and how they could work better. And we talk with Kathryn Toghill, electrochemist from Lancaster University, about redox flow batteries and how they could help make our power grids more sustainable.
