REAL estate development, ARCHITECTURAL designs, and COLLEGE graduates
The article presents diverse real estate development designs created by 2006 British architecture graduates. By using rapid prototyping techniques, University College student Tobias Klein created the Chapel of Our Lady de Regla, an inverted chapel slotted into an existing courtyard to meet the need for space to bury the dead. Westminster University graduate Gillian Lambert designed a studio house for the weather-obsessed architect. Edinburgh University graduate David Eland developed a design for a pharmaceutical research facility.
RADIO technology equipment and MOBILE communication systems
Describes Ericsson's approach to dealing with a potential EMC/EMI and solving a packing density problem in its design of the PBA313 01/2 radio, which forms part of a module designed to support the firm's Bluetooth short-range mobile wireless link. Principles of Ericsson's self-screening technique; Rapid prototyping and application.
