title How Real Is the Sense of Presence in A Virtual Environment? : Applying Protocol Analysis for Data Collection
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 1, pp. 188-197
summary This study attempts to investigate the sense of presence in a fully immersive virtual environment. The methodology applied in this study used protocol analysis for data collection. A preliminary experiment was conducted to explore noticeable phenomena to develop a hypothesis for the final experiments. Four different virtual reality models, representing four different kinds of virtual space, were navigated in C6 (CAVE facilities) by two human subjects. Results of the research in this direction have provided valuable understanding regarding the sense of presence in the virtual environment.

title Working with a CAAD's Spreadsheet
source Architectural Computing from Turing to 2000 [eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9523687-5-7] Liverpool (UK) 15-17 September 1999, pp. 217-222
summary This paper shows the content of a subject imparted at the ETSAB (UPC). It describes the use of CAD systems in tasks that could not even be thought before new technology arrival and traditional methods had to be used. CAD systems potential to simultaneously work with constitutive objects and relations between them is taken into advantage. The definite design is not only the juxtaposition of some but the tight relation linking them. This work proposes CAD systems to be used in architectural design projects as spreadsheets to perform arithmetic calculations. The process to obtain an architectural model has ended in a logic sequence of formal operations, which uses completely defined objects as data. Any element of the project, data or operation, can be changed and model updating is automatically performed obtaining the new result. Finally a concrete exercise developed along the course is shown like a practical example.

title On the Use of Occlusion Maps to Examine Additions to Existing Buildings

summary This paper discusses occlusion maps, or diagrams of isovists deployed in a plan field, which graphically describe an inhabitant’s position-dependent perception of a building’s visual permeability. Occlusion maps are shown here to be an important tool for analyzing the effect that additions to existing buildings have on this perception. The question is critical because additions invariably affect the visual permeability of their host buildings.

title Understanding Structural Movement Joints with CAAD Animation
source [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Eindhoven (The Netherlands) 11-13 November 1993
summary The well-established use, as an architectural design tool, of computer graphics using 'fly-through' techniques gives a highly visual overview of design concepts and may additionally illustrate certain specific details, but it cannot show their time-dependent dynamic function. This paper describes and illustrates how CAAD animation can be used to analyse not only structural philosophy but also the dynamic effects of nonstatic loading and thermal movement, thus leading to a better understanding of the design criteria applied in certain elegant solutions. The CAAD video animations illustrate the structural philosophy relating to the facade of the refurbished Bracken House, London and the dynamic operation of key movement junctions within Stansted Airport and East Croydon Railway Station.

title From Ancient To Digital: The Challenges Of A Major Transition Towards The Virtual Reconstruction Of The Andean Past (With Special Reference To Inca Architecture.)
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary The definition of an underlying shape grammar behind Inca architecture can assist in the virtual archaeological reconstruction of destroyed sites; that is, allowing us to step from the ancient to the digital realm. The Inca architectural style tends to be consistent throughout the Andes and was in effect, a statement of power. Geometricity, interlocking patterns, orthogonal layouts, colour and texture reversal, modular compression, derivations, rotation, mirroring, repetition, symmetry, proportion, ratios, recombination and Andean “entasis” are qualities frequently encountered in Andean art and architecture. They are “CAD-friendly” and can be integrated into predictive digital virtual reconstruction techniques representing partially damaged and substantially destroyed ancient Andean monuments (and fine arts).

title Learning in the Domain of Decisions and Performances
source IAAI'86 Conference. 1986. pp. i:1:1-9. CADLINE has abstract only
summary Many domains present themselves as mappings between two classes of spaces: decision spaces and performance spaces. All design domains can be represented in this manner where the designer takes decisions which manifest themselves as performances in the designed artifact. Learning in these domains can take account of the structural characteristics of the spaces and of the mappings. This paper describes a system, PARE, which learns in the domain of decisions and performances by making use of the characteristics of a particular structuring concept known as 'Pareto optimality.' Much is known about the concept and its features which are used as hypotheses. If the hypotheses succeed then learning takes place by specializing the hypotheses' characteristics. Characterizations of Pareto optimality are described and the feature extraction process shown. The feature extraction process utilizes fuzzy pattern matching. An example of the system, written in ConSUN workstations, is presented from the domain of fenestration design

summary The use of informatic tools (computer-aided design) may be associated to designer tasks since the first phase of product conception until industrial production. By using these CAD tools during the initial design phase, it is possible to predict, identify and correct mistakes. This is an interdisciplinary article that presents and discusses an experience as a teacher of graphics computation II, offered to product design students. It also reveals the didactic methods and psychological approaches applied to address this challenge: Achievement motivation, pedagogy of autonomy and learning pyramid. The didactic experiment was positive and lead to interesting learning results.

summary The course Systems of Representation has been conceived as an open structure made up of relationships between different areas of knowledge. Art and new media, architectural theory and visual communication, graphic design and interface design, digital tools and manual techniques, are put into relation in the theory lessons and in the realization of exercises. The crossing interactions between the different media gives rise to an interdisciplinary and participatory education, with the support of information and communication technologies. The paper focuses in the content and results of two of the six themes that make the course: Text and Image.

title In-Space: Learning to Give Form to Space
source Proceedings of the 8th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference
summary A perspective represents space as seen from the outside, with the eye of the transcendental subject; an eye –represented by a geometric view point– which not only sees a space, but a space as it is seen by the subject. Motion is inherent to our experience of space which is not fixed and static –like a perspective assumes– but dynamic.

source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 656- 670
summary The goal of the project has been to design and implement an ICT environment which facilitates the interaction of the different actors (architects, builders, manufacturers, occupants) involved in the design, construction and use of affordable housing built with industrialized methods. The interwoven working environments which form the structure of the system enable the actors to carry out their activities in a synchronous and asynchronous manner. As well as providing a structure that supports collaboration, the system automatically generates housing units and buildings.

title Deep learning in design workflows: The elusive design pixel
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 16 - no. 4, 328-340
summary The recent wave of developments and research in the field of deep learning and artificial intelligence is causing the border between the intuitive and deterministic domains to be redrawn, especially in computer vision and natural language processing. As designers frequently invoke vision and language in the context of design, this article takes a step back to ask if deep learning’s capabilities might be applied to design workflows, especially in architecture. In addition to addressing this general question, the article discusses one of several prototypes, BIMToVec, developed to examine the use of deep learning in design. It employs techniques like those used in natural language processing to interpret building information models. The article also proposes a homogeneous data format, provisionally called a design pixel, which can store design information as spatial-semantic maps. This would make designers’ intuitive thoughts more accessible to deep learning algorithms while also allowing designers to communicate abstractly with design software.

summary This paper proposes that the increasing weight of computer techniques in all the design operations is going to transform the way as design itself is defined. The discussion is organized around the concept of description as complementary concept of the definition of things. It is shown how descriptions can substitute for definitions when they include new elements, which transform the original concept. On that basis it is argued that the new description means can lead to transform the way as architecture itself is looked at.

source Behaviour and Information Technology 1986 v.5 n.3 p.259-271
summary In an effort to understand how computer-assisted design (CAD) can be optimized in an organizational setting, perceptions and attitudes of CAD users about their jobs and workplace are compared with those of non-users. Results indicate that the implementation of CAD may not result in the expected benefits if CAD is not appropriately managed. Job unpredictability, job autonomy, and job interdependence are three areas in particular needing management attention if CAD benefits are to be achieved.
