In fact, the report said, because drone pilots watch their targets sometimes for days and weeks before pulling the trigger — and then see them blown up on a high-resolution video screen — they are more susceptible to post-traumatic stress than pilots of manned aircraft.The panel instead reserves the bulk of its criticism for how two successive American presidents have conducted a “long-term killing program based on secret rationales,” and how too little thought has been given to what consequences might be spawned by this new way of waging war.

This thesis has interpreted typography and architecture as fields of dynamic organization systems which operate under a common set of parameters, while understanding that they exist independently of one another. Architects have the opportunity to build new spaces and structures, but the letterforms in our alphabet have been passed down, and typographic design reinvents these existing conditions based on a number of fundamentally architectural design concepts. Typography then becomes a process of managing a vast collection of parts in the same way that buildings are constructed frame space and facilitate programatic requirements. However, while many of their fundamental principles overlap, a literal synthesis of typography and architecture-making buildings from letters or letters from buildings-would only succeed in combining the most superficial characteristics of two design fields that should exist independently, but always be acutely aware of their deep-seated relationship.
