On December 10, 1986 the Greater New York Section of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the engineering section of the New York Academy of Sciences jointly presented a program on mining the planets.

... ucted outside of Tucson, Arizona. When it is completed eight people will inhabit it for two years entirely sealed off from the outside world.

Bruce Goff's Bavinger House Introduction: Bruce Goffs working career spanned sixty-six years, from 1916, when he began working in an architects office, until his death in 1982.

His idiosyncratic designs juxtaposed shapes in unexpected but delightful combinations. His reliance on unusual materials resulted in strange, sometimes futuristic combinations of colors and textures. His interior designs were resolutely unconv ...

We have to think of it as something continuous and something growing; something becoming, always becoming. Goff believed that the sense of surprise ...
