Univ of Florida Implementing DDN HPC Storage with Nvidia DGX SuperPOD Architecture for AI-Centric Supercomputing

DDN today announced its AI400X all-NVME flash storage system will help amplify capabilities of the University of Florida’s flagship supercomputer, “HiPerGator,” to make it the world’s fastest AI supercomputer in academia, according to DDN and Nvidia.

Building on DDN’s partnership with UF, this third-generation HiPerGator will integrate 10 DDN AI400X appliances intended to deliver maximum productivity from the 140 Nvidia DGX A100 systems, which contain 1,120 A100 Tensor Core GPUs, at the center of this AI-centric supercomputer and data center. DDN said recent enhancements to meta data performance and data access capabilities have advanced the ability of A3I to serve as the hub for the university’s AI data.

The HiPerGator system, scheduled for deployment this winter, will consist of 4 petabytes of storage to feed the DGX A100 systems, with data flowing through Nvidia Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand network.

UF has said it is committed to every student

Creating an inclusive welfare architecture – columns

The recently announced Atmanirbhar 3.0 package offers important insights into the Centre’s approach to welfare spending in response to the economic shocks caused by Covid-19. The choices point to critical limitations in India’s current welfare architecture and the politics that shape spending choices. With the focus now shifting to the 2021 budget, there is an urgent need to reflect on these choices and articulate a road map for the next year. A robust, inclusive welfare architecture is both a moral imperative as well a critical component for economic recovery.

First, the good news. India’s existing welfare architecture has proved resilient and capable in preventing deep distress in rural India. The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and the Public Distribution System (PDS) proved to be lifelines as central and state governments were able to mobilise the administrative machinery and expand the welfare net, at relative speed. By October,

natalie dionne architecture embeds wooden house into rocky canadian forest

natalie dionne architecture has embedded this wooden private residence into a rocky forest in east bolton, canada. prioritizing a low impact intervention to the existing terrain, the montréal-based studio has elevated the main living level of ‘forest house I’ above the ground. wood dominates a restrained palette of materials, both inside and outside the 215 sqm home, which strives towards symbiosis with the surrounding environment.natalie dionne architecture embeds wooden house into rocky canadian forestall images by raphaël thibodeau

 

 

natalie dionne architecture overcame the challenges in the existing topography by elevating the main volume of the house in order to make a soft landing on the rocky outcrop to the north, where the best light was to be found. this move ensured optimal views of the surrounding natural environment, while it also created a dramatic approach to the home. anchored at one end, atop a base where a lonely rock once stood, the main floor hovers over the rocky

That Never-Signed Modern Architecture Ban Is Still Making Its Mark

Back in February, a drafted executive order stirred up controversy for its plan around “Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again.” The move would have broken from tradition to codify an official federal architectural style within the General Services Administration, a departure from nearly 60 years of policy precedent that even architectural classicists proved unwilling to embrace.

Ultimately, the draft order never came to fruition. But as new reporting from Bloomberg CityLab suggests, it seems that the unsigned executive order may have influenced at least one General Services Administration solicitation in 2020, creating potential issues of authority and oversight. Another solicitation, which predated the draft executive order, is also well worth considering. 

Based on language from that February 2019 solicitation for an $86 million federal courthouse project in Huntsville, Alabama, it would appear that GSA’s stated preference for neoclassical architecture predates the public revelation of the executive order itself by almost a

VR architecture reveals stunning details, but can’t always capture ambience

We were used to consuming architecture – both near to home and far away – with ease. But this year, our travel wings severed, heritage sites found themselves scrambling to hasten their digital aspirations.

Marcel Proust famously imagined one day travel might be possible without needing to voyage to “strange lands” but through “possessing other eyes”. In 2020, this has become true: virtual reality has allowed audiences to stay put but engaged in architecture and historic buildings.

From the comfort of our home, we can participate in a virtual guided tour of the English architect John Soane’s wondrous house and museum in the heart of London.

The intricate and beautifully preserved Georgian interiors, including the basement “Sepulchral Chamber” – where Soane installed a 3,000-year-old pharaoh’s tomb in 1824 – can be accessed from multiple viewing angles that turn the solid stone walls magically transparent.

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) today announced a $10m gift from a foundation led by the green architect and industrial designer Emilio Ambasz that will establish an institute exploring the relationship between architecture and ecology.

The Argentinian-born Ambasz, who served as the curator of design in MoMA’s department of architecture and design from 1969 to 1976 and as a trustee of MoMA PS1 from 2002 to 2006, is known for probing the relationship between what is man-made and what is natural. He has been a member of the museum’s International Council since 1978.

MoMA said that the goals of the new entity, the Emilio Ambasz Institute for the Joint Study of the Built and Natural Environment, would be to spur dialogue, conversation and research while highlighting the championed theme of architecture and sustainability.
