This project was a case study of an existing building with a focus on material properties and capacities. The material studied was the steel used in the custom amorphous columns. It was also an opportunity to exercise my skills with graphic development. The spread was constructed using a range of software including Photoshop and InDesign. The 3D model was constructed using a combination of rhinoceros, with grasshopper used to model the columns, and then transferred to Revit to be rendered with the VRay beta plugin.

Sendai Mediatheque – Toyo Ito – Kevin McKitrick | Toyo ito, Sendai, Library plan
We are currently in Beta version and updating this search on a regular basis. Text description provided by the architects. With the intentions of designing a transparent cultural media center that is supported by a unique system to allow complete visibility and transparency to the surrounding community, the Sendai Mediatheque by Toyo Ito is revolutionary in it's engineering and aesthetic. This striking visual quality that is one of the most identifiable characteristics of the project is comprable to large trees in a forest, and function as light shafts as well as storage for all of the utilities, networks and systems. Each plan is free form, as the structural column lattices are independent of the facade and fluctuate in diameter as they stretch from floor to floor. The four largest tubes are situated at the corners of the plates, which serve as the principle means of support and bracing. Five of the nine smaller tubes are straight and contain elevators, while the other four are more crooked and carry the ducts and wires.
Case Study – Japan Earthquake & Tsunami 11/03/11
The test confirmed that using a private 4. Since then, the city has established itself as an international leader in disaster risk reduction and reconstruction. As part of a smart city initiative, Sendai wanted to develop an emergency response system that could improve its ability to monitor tsunamis, broadcast alerts and evacuate affected areas. Workers steer a fleet of connected camera- and loudspeaker-equipped drones from a command and control center. Enhanced coverage and performance ensure reliable delivery of media streams between drones and the command and control center.
IMP-type carbapenemase, found in various Gram-negative bacteria, has been increasingly detected worldwide. We aimed to study the outcomes and risk factors for acquisition of IMP-type carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae IMP-CRE , as this has not been evaluated in detail. The risk factors for acquisition for the CRE and CSE groups and mortality rates, which were calculated using multivariate logistic regression models with weighting according to the inverse probability of propensity scores, were compared. We found that IMP-CRE may not contribute to worsened clinical outcomes, compared to CSE, and gastrostomy, previous intravenous therapy, hemodialysis, and broad-spectrum antimicrobial exposure were identified as risk factors for CRE isolation.
