    Developing airport systems infrastructure is a partnership, not a transaction

    As airport engineers and designers, it’s crucial that we understand that our services are more than just a commodity.

    Lighting that makes you feel good

    Most people walk through life looking straight ahead. Constantly moving, performing their daily activities as quickly and efficiently as possible. For us, our gaze tends to travel upward. As lighting designers, what has become part of the background for most people fascinates and intrigues us.

    R&B Life: ASHRAE Leadership U Program

    Recently, I attended the ASHRAE Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington as a participant in the Leadership U program. If you don’t already know, ASHRAE is the leading society for advancement of the built environment, and its members are continually researching, writing standards, and providing education resources for the building industry. Leadership U is a program sponsored by the Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) in which four young engineers are selected to shadow the four Vice Presidents of ASHRAE. The goal of the program is to transfer knowledge from the senior members in ASHRAE to the future leaders of the organization.

    In “the business” – those familiar with the vagaries of aviation security – we too often get so immersed that we lose context. Aviation security is not in fact a steady-state feature of aviation, but a constantly evolving response to moving circumstances.

    I love this short film by Saint Louisan Charles Eames called “Powers of 10.” It demonstrates dramatically the effect of raising the number 10 to successive exponential powers. It was shot in 1968 for IBM and narrated by the Manhattan Project and MIT physicist Philip Morrison.
