After World War II, research and development boomed in all fields of science and technology. New technologies in aerospace, microelectronics, computers, and advancements in Internet and cell phones were all brought fourth by the in-depth research that began to push the development of new ideas and creations by engineers. Rocket propelling engines and the use of atomic and nuclear power were all designed and tinkered by engineers.\

To continue producing these sophisticated technologies engineers began to expand research efforts and reforming educational programs. Intensive research began to not only bring new technologies to the world but new ideas and powerful bodies of knowledge. The field developed in-depth theories and established itself as its own science of creating, explaining, and utilizing man made systems.

For the future, the combination of intellectual disciplines and technology in new emerging fields. For example, nanotechnology will take over the era of microelectronics. Biotechnology is also a multidisciplinary field that integrates biology, biochemistry, and physics.

Johnathon Guzik's insight:

This technologically advanced building is designed so the people inside get a bond with nature even better they would outside.  They can be sitting at their desk and go pick an apple or go sit underneath an over-hanging grape vine for a break.
