The meaning of Architecture in Information Architecture : analysis and reflection

Fuss, Megan ; Schneider, René (Dir.)

Mémoire de master : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; MASID 63.

There are various ways of identifying ‘Architecture’. It takes different shapes depending on the circumstances and the field of study, forming distinct disciplines. Furthermore, they all follow their own set of defined characteristics and principles that are reflective of their good practices and of how they are characterized. This paper converges both Information Architecture and...

During the last twenty years, the topic of form has become one of the most controversial issues in public and professional discussions about architecture. Ever since the Digital Turn, it has been exacerbated, since computer-aided design makes it possible, rapidly and effortlessly, to create extraordinary and emblematic buildings. These icons are threatening to become banal and often express...

Computer architecture : from the orthogonal valuation of names up to structuring the N-stream

Lafitte, Jean-Louis ; Héritier, Charles-André (Dir.) ; Chopard, Bastien (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Genève, 2002 ; Sc. 3420.

Starting with computer organization, as pointed out by Flynn under the form of two streams (instructions stream xI, data stream yD), the author introduces a third stream, the Names stream zN. Generalizing Flynn in that way leads to a much wider and deeper taxomnomy. In a second step, starting from concrete situation in modern computers where data are rarely accessed in memory directly through one...
