title A BIM Platform for Offsite Timber Construction
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 597-604
summary This paper discusses the potential of a BIM platform for offsite timber construction within the context of the UK construction industry. It examines the benefits, limitations, and challenges that BIM brings for offsite timber. Proof-of-concept projects are presented that deal with the architectural technology, structural engineering, and life cycle analysis aspects. These demonstrate the feasibility of the development of an open BIM platform which would establish a common standard for the industry. The paper concludes by suggesting an alternative business model for offsite timber construction, as enabled by Building Information Modelling.

title Rendezvous: An Architecture for Synchronous Multi-User Applications
source Proceedings, Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work. New York: ACM, pp. 317-328
summary Rendezvous is an architecture for creating synchronous multi-user applications. It consists of two parts: a run-time architecture for managing the multi-user session and a start-up architecture for managing the network connectivity. The run-time architecture is based on a User Interface Management System called MEL, which is a language extension to Common Lisp providing support for graphics operations, object-oriented programming, and constraints. Constraints are used to manage three dimensions of sharing: sharing of underlying information, sharing of views, and sharing of access. The start-up architecture decouples invoking and joining an application so that not all users need be known when the application is started. At present, the run-time architecture is completed and running test applications. As a first test of the complete Rendezvous architecture, we will implement a multi-user card game by the end of the summer.

title Shading Evaluations with General Three- Dimensional Models
source Computer Aided Design. September, 1985. vol. 17: pp. 305-310 : ill. includes bibliography
summary The SHADOWPACK package of computer programs has been developed to facilitate shading evaluations, for the direct component of solar radiation, with general 3D models. An interactive solid modelling program allows the user to construct and view the 3D model before saving it for further analysis and display. Other programs permit the graphical display of the shading situation throughout the year, the quantitative assessment of energy received on different faces of the model, and the display of the distribution of energy received on particular faces by means of contour plots. The use of the computer graphics approach has proved particularly convenient because of the similarity between the techniques used for graphical and numerical algorithms

title A Knowledge Based Computer- Aided Solar Design System
source ASHRAE Transactions (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers). Atlanta, GA: 1990. [5] p. : ill. includes bibliography
summary A knowledge based computer-aided architectural design system (KB-CAAD) for the schematic design and evaluation of passive solar buildings is presented. The presented tool is based on the integration of knowledge based and procedural simulation methods with any available CAAD system for building representation. The knowledge base contains the heuristic rules for the design of passive solar buildings. Whenever possible, the knowledge base guides the designer through the decision making process. However, if 'rules of thumb' are not acceptable for the particular design problem, the KB-CAAD tool guides the architect towards the optimal solution, by using a procedural simulation model. It is demonstrated, through a case study, that the proposed knowledge based design system not only leads to the design of better solar buildings, but that it takes less time and man-power to introduce the geometrical data that would be needed for a regular non-solar building representation

summary Representation is a key concept for understanding the social uses of technologies associated with manipulation, presentation, storage and maintenance of geographic information.This paper refers to forms of space representation, essentially derived from cartographic techniques, that bases many web applications which aid to promote the development of new forms of social interaction and influence the perception and use of public spaces. The paper discusses the relationship between spatial representation, spatial knowledge and technologies of representation and visualization of space.

title The Fear Of The Digital: From The Elusion Of Typology To Typologics
source First International Conference on Critical Digital: What Matters(s)? - 18-19 April 2008, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge (USA), pp. 255-266
summary It might seem that architecture has been forced to choose, once again, between two worlds of existence. One of them might be the construction of the tangible, the other, a “formal fantasy” that will never reach a legitimate status among the “tectonic” or the “structural”. This vague spectrum has confirmed the fear of loosing typology as a proof, of loosing a foremost validation for architecture. But one could see the virtual as a possibility to generate a structure of discourses and interactive tactics to reformulate the typological. This meaning that the virtual could transcend the so called “graphic” stigma and actually produce the discourses and spatial strategies to radicalize typology and move towards a radicalization of content.

title Algorithm for approximate NURBS skinning
source Computer-Aided Design, Vol. 28 (9) (1996) pp. 699-706
summary An algorithm for approximate skinning through cross-sectionalNURBS curves is presented. The method eliminates the problem of dealing with huge amounts of control points obtained during the curvecompatability process. It also allows the designer to specify large numbers of cross-sections and approximately fit a smooth surface to these curves to any given tolerance. Depending on the tolerances used, up to99% of the control points can be eliminated.

title A toolkit for Collaborative Design: Envisioning and Sharing the Identity of Place Through Traditional and Emergent Techniques of Simulation
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.418-426
summary The aim of this study is to develop a novel toolkit for co-design with community stakeholders based on the use of digital interactive simulations. The toolkit is composed of a variety of tools, with a specific focus on emergent technologies. We argue that tools, especially interactive and immersive ones, can be efficiently applied for enabling citizen engagement and supporting place-making processes thanks to the natural interaction and intuitive understanding of design schemes. The occasion for testing a co-design process and simulation techniques was the redesign of a shared public space, an initiative promoted by the project Citt? Studi Campus Sostenibile, a sustainable campus program supported by the Politecnico di Milano and the Universit? degli Studi di Milano.
