INDUSTRY UPDATES


Rutgers Business School
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
There was a time not long ago when a building such as TEN Arquitectos’ new business school for Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey, might have gotten by on its crisp good looks and structural exhibitionism alone.

A new way to simulate the sky
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
Early electric lamps most closely approximated firelight. Seen from a distance, the warm, pinpoint glow of the first incandescent might easily have been confused with its candle or gas lamp antecedents. Over time, however, lighting manufacturers have aspired to mimic daylight instead. This goal has proven to be a significant challenge, given the spectral complexity, variability and depth characteristics of natural sunlight and the visual effects created by the atmosphere through which it passes.

Biocomposites' silk-reinforced future
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
Growing consumer demand and market activity for sustainable materials has led to the study and application of natural fibers in biocomposites. Many composites already incorporate fibrous materials; for example, fiber-reinforced polymers can incorporate glass- or carbon-fiber strands. Hemp and flax may be among the most studied natural fibers, but in a March 2014, report in the journal Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing, Darshil U.
