Matter as Energy What Architects Need to Know

Dr. Winifred E. Newman, Prof. Shahin Vassigh, Dr. Yimin Zhu


Current advances in technology and cyberspace
capacity coupled with emerging research in science education are
creating new opportunities to enhance architectural education in
the science and technology areas and prepare students for
effective collaboration with other stakeholders in the building
industry. The project described in this paper addresses the need
for the improvement of science and technology education and
proposes that using advances in digital technology to engage
students in interactive learning is a necessary step. One of the
most promising and youngest applications of computer
technology has been in developing in educational games. Using
new technologies to re-think the education of the architect in the
relation to matter as energy reinforces the role of architecture in
science, technology and mathematics.
