If they did, then everyone would be Jean-Claude Van Damme. And now that I've given Jean-Claude Van Damme the plot for his next movie, let's talk about some of his colleagues. These are the action stars who, regardless of any real-life martial arts experience or toughness, never seemed able to put together a convincing fight scene. There was hardly any kung fu in the show, which was lucky, since Carradine fought like a gentle current pushing a corpse against a rock.
The facades, clad in a buff-colored limestone that matches the Brandenburg Gate, are scaled independently from one another, so that the proportions of both are appropriate to the immediate urban area within which they each exist.
The Pariser Platz facade features a series of simple, punched openings and deeply-recessed window bays, allowing the building to blend naturally into the unique urban fabric which is the setting of the Brandenburg Gate. A glass canopy covers the main entry from Pariser Platz.
The high-volume foyer immediately inside the main entry offers a view into the building's large interior atrium, which features a curving glass ceiling and a curving glass floor.
A wood-clad arcade leads to the office elevator lobbies, which are located on either side of the atrium. Offices and conference spaces are organized around the atrium, and are oriented inward to take advantage of the natural light that floods through the glass ceiling.
The building's primary conference hall is located within a highly sculptural shell that rests on the glass floor in the center of the atrium making it appear to float in the space.
The beginning of the form for the Conference Room grew out of the Peter Lewis House; a 6 year project that was never realized. From towhen he worked intensively on the Lewis House, Gehry used the project to experiment with free-form shapes that since have shown up in many of his most famous buildings.
The room was actually booked for future conferences long before it was constructed A Sky Lounge is located on the roof of the building, beneath a stainless steel collar that surrounds the Southern end of the atrium's glass ceiling. The Sky Lounge features high ceilings and expansive glazing designed to take advantage of the building's spectacular views of the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and the Tiergarden.
A second, smaller interior atrium will serve the residential component of the project. This atrium promotes ventilation in the residential area and allows natural light to enter both sides of each apartment.
A reflecting pool at the bottom of the atrium adds a dynamic quality to the light, best seen from the glass elevators that service the residential area. Experience Music Project, Seattle, Washington The Experience Music Project is an exciting blend of exhibits, technology, media, and hands-on activities that combines the interpretive aspects of a traditional museum, educational role of a school, state-of-the-art research facilities of a specialized library, and audience-drawing qualities of performance venues and popular attractions Exhibits and public programs are envisioned as a three-dimensional floating puzzle formed by six elements, with each piece being critical to the shape and the nature of the whole.
The building itself consists of a cluster of colorful curving elements clad in a variety of materials. The Seattle Center Monorail, a remnant of the World's Fair that continues to provide transportation between Seattle Center and downtown Seattle, passes through the building, allowing Monorail riders to glimpse inside.
Aerospace software was used to design the undulating folds of metal found throughout the building. The 21, metal shingles that form the outer shell were cut by lasers guided by data generated directly from the modeling software.
In addition to 35, square feet of exhibition space, the building houses a restaurant, bookstore, and administrative spaces, with support and storage areas located beneath grade.This is What Happens When You Ask Scientists to Explain Their PhDs in Dance Watch this year’s winners of the “Dance Your Ph.D” contest animate sperm competition, cell division and sleep.

Announcing the Dance Your Ph.D. winner By John Bohannon Nov. 24, , AM When Florence Metz turned in her Ph.D. thesis on water protection policy this year at the University of Bern in. Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while are well aware of the value I place on writing. I find that any time I’m mulling something over, writing down .
The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue. Your interpretive thesis is the argument that you wish to make the work that you have written and then support with through the evidence that you present within the body of your writing.
Coming up with a solid and defendable thesis, however, is not always a simple task and many students will struggle with it no matter how far through their 5/5.
