Faces That Make Money
BY ROYI AKAVIA
@ VOL 27
ON DEC 18, 2015
The distinctive pieces introduced here combine a collage made of real devalued international currency and layers of varnish over which Royi Akavia paints the portraits of modern subjects who have money, make money and spend money. The works are also burned with fire to create a glasslike 3-D surface reminiscent of old world craftsmanship. The end result: The rich and famous – such as Queen Elizabeth – are situated atop such personalities as Bolivar, Leonardo, Lenin and Margaret Thatcher.
University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism
BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.

Does money make you mean?
BY PAUL SMEETS
@ VOL 34
ON JAN 30, 2018
What do you think, does money make you mean? Paul Smeets, Associate Professor in Finance at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, investigated the influence of money on prosocial behaviour over the last few years.
Traditionally finance researchers have only focused on how to behave
to earn more money. Paul flipped this question around and asked: Does having more money influence your behaviour?
