How we engineered the world’s first engineered flooring
In the late 1960s, a group of engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Pennsylvania, and other institutions were working on a project called “designing” the world around us.
The goal was to find a way to create a system that would be so powerful that it would be invisible to the naked eye.
But the idea was far from a fluke: engineers had been building a system for decades.
The system was called “engineered architecture,” and it was based on a process known as “structural metamaterials” that allowed the structures to be shaped like a specific shape without having to be made entirely of concrete.
That idea led to the development of a number of other forms of engineered architecture, including the ubiquitous “architectural engineer” or “archimedean.”
The idea of building a building with structural metamomaterials was the brainchild of the British architect Sir John Harrison, who came up with the concept in the early 1960s.
The basic idea was to build a building using a type of metamodal called a “diamond.”
The diamond has three concentric circles around it that can be rotated 180 degrees.
As the circle is rotated, the diamond’s length becomes smaller, making it easier to align the corners.
A building that’s easier to manipulate than any concrete flooring you might have ever encountered.
(See photos of the world in the 1960s.)
The idea was quickly embraced by the architectural world and was a powerful one at the time.
But it was quickly taken over by a new breed of engineers, who quickly developed the idea that the diamond could be designed to be as invisible as possible.
They called their project the “hidden diamond” because it would have no visible shape to the human eye.
To the untrained eye, the diamonds were actually a very, very different building design.
Instead of being flat, they were made of an “invisible diamond.”
And instead of being round like a diamond, they actually were a very curved diamond that looked like a flat diamond.
It’s a bit like what happens when you put a square on a circle, and the square is made of diamond and then you twist the circle to make it turn, then the square turns back into a diamond and the circle turns.
The “invisibility diamond” was the first real-world example of “archistere,” a word that refers to the idea of a building that has no visible structure.
The concept, called “archismere,” is a form of engineered design, and it’s been used by many of the best architects, from the likes of Rem Koolhaas and Edward Hopper to the likes on the Royal Institute of British Architects.
But even the most technically-advanced of the “archists” could not have done it without the help of an engineer.
And the engineer who was building it was none other than John Harrison himself.
Built in London’s Chelsea neighborhood in the late 1940s, Harrison’s project was one of the most important engineering breakthroughs of the 20th century.
It would later be called the “Harrison-designed” system.
Harrison was a master of the art of design.
His ideas were based on the principles of “structuring,” a term that describes the way a building works, but it’s often applied to buildings that were built before he arrived at MIT.
In his time at MIT, Harrison designed several projects that were so successful that the school named its new campus after him.
In one of his first projects, a glass box that would sit in the middle of the school’s main building.
The glass box would be an incredible building for its time.
The design was simple, and if you thought about it, it looked pretty good.
(It was also, in fact, the most complicated glass box ever built.)
But it didn’t work out so well.
In 1943, the British government began to build factories in the United States that would produce the glass box.
Harrison, a native New Yorker, was part of a group that went to work on a prototype.
But after a few months, Harrison noticed something strange.
He noticed that the box’s construction looked a lot more like the way concrete floors had been made before he started working there.
Harrison realized that he was not the only one who noticed this.
He was joined by other architects.
Eventually, they came to the same conclusion that Harrison had: that the way the building was built was not what he was used to.
And that the glass boxes were an obvious step toward solving the problem.
They decided to design the box themselves, and they built it.
The box’s first floor consisted of a square with a circular opening.
Inside was a concrete slab, which was later reinforced with concrete blocks.
The first floor also contained a “pile,” which was essentially a floor made of a combination of wood and concrete.
The pile was filled with bricks and concrete,
