2006 -- slides -- Vivienda Social en Latino-América, presentation in spanish for the Brazilian and Ibero-American Congress on Social Housing, Florianópolis, Brazil, November 2006. Evidence-based optimal practices for social housing are developed in a Latin American context. Solutions towards long-term sustainability help to attach residents to their built environment. At the same time, we analyze the failures of the standard social housing typologies favored by governments around the world.

Cellular automata that generate the Sierpinski carpet. Harmony-seeking computations. 15 Fundamental Properties. Generative codes, and their difference from static New Urbanist codes.

2008 -- slides -- Principles of Urban Structure, Milan Polytechnic, 5 June 2008. Figures from my book are used to illustrate the network city, universal distribution of sizes, fractal loading, capillarity, and other new concepts in urbanism

2008 -- video in italian -- L'Architettura oltre il Fondamentalismo Geometrico, intervista in italiano con Giuseppe Sottosanti, Palermo, 16 giugno 2008.

2008 -- slides -- Connecting the Fractal Coast, Mediterranean University of Reggio Calabria, Italy, September 2008. With the urbanization of the Mediterranean coastline into one continuous ribbon city, we need more intelligent techniques to manage its growth. The goal is to allow commercialization without destroying the life-giving qualities that attract people to the coastline in the first place. A method for long-term solutions utilizes fractals and networks. The proposed bridge to Sicily is discussed.

2009 -- slides -- Urban Nuclei and the Geometry of Streets: the Emergent Neighborhoods Model (with Michael Mehaffy, Sergio Porta, & Yodan Rofè), presented by Yodan Rofè at the Congress for the New Urbanism CNU XVII, Denver, 12 June 2009.
