title Crossing Interactions between Architecture and Media
source Predicting the Future [25th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-6-5] Frankfurt am Main (Germany) 26-29 September 2007, pp. 827-835
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.
keywords Representation, design education, interdisciplinarity, computer-supported collaborative learning

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.

title Barcode housing system: Integrating floor plan layout generation processes within an open and collaborative system to design and build customized housing
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.

title A Quantitative Assessment of Changes in Work Activities Resulting from Computer-Assisted Design
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.

title Paremetric: Making
source Parametricism (SPC) ACADIA Regional 2011 Conference Proceedings
summary Digital fabrication has stimulated the return of the architect as builder over the past fifteen years or so and projects are showing up all over which implement these tools as a major design factor. More recently, parametrics has become a buzzword as its being used to design structures that respond to their environment and other site conditions. While parametrics can be a powerful tool, we rarely see it leave the realm of the design process and venture into the physical world.

source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 310-314
summary As the Web grows in the Education area, the new Information and Communication Technologies have been introduced to improve quality in remote education, and more interaction among students through a collaborative environment that helps the learning process. In architecture, many experiences have occurred among schools, giving their students the opportunity to experience this new reality. Like a virtual “field trip”, students with different cultures and oriented under different methodologies, have the opportunity to be part of an inter-institutional group to design together. The social-history theories of Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934), Russian psychologist that dedicated his life to education, seams to fit the new forms of virtual interaction among students. The aim of this article is to introduce the Vygotsky´s theories and its suitability as a pedagogical support to the Virtual Design Studios in architectural schools. [Full paper in Portuguese]

title EL PODER DE TRANSFORMACIÓN DE LOS MEDIOS DIGITALES (The Transformation Power of Digital Media)

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 SIGraDi 2004 - [Proceedings of the 8th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Porte Alegre - Brasil 10-12 november 2004
summary This paper targets to report the experience of a virtual design studio called Habitar a Cidade, or Living within the City. From march to july 2004, six brazillian universities. teachers and students groups in Architecture, living in five different brazillian states, were gathered by internet-based communication, and all of their design products have been displayed in specially designed websites. Furthermore, different ways of communicating have been used: messenger chats, e-mails, newsgroups, including the exchange of graphic files. The challenge of this experience was to put in relation schools with inequal levels both in computer equipments and computing design capacities. This paper aims at reading in a very preliminary way the relationship between the use of internet means and the studio.s activities . main goals. As a major conclusion, and despite some organization difficulties, the low cost of the experience and the relative easyness of its development are great reasons to redo it.

summary Today, with rapidly evolving information technology, computer technologies has become an interface rather than a tool for design process. With the development in computer applications it has become possible to solve design problems which were not possible to handle before. Computer environment which has become an interface rather than a tool for design has also led to the emergence of a number of concepts. New concepts such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) are being involved in design process. With the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) , AI has earned an interdisciplinary position. Agent based systems which are contained in the fields of AI have become the subjects of many researches in design basis. Approach to the problem solving process in the process of architectural/design problems is to be addressed as an important point within the scope of evaluation process. In this context user movements have a very critical role in process of problem solving according to the design problems. While designing or solving a design problem , ignoring the user movements can lead to unwanted results. Within the scope of this study user movements in city are considered in the context of emerging urban part/particles as a preliminary study.

summary As most of us have observed in the past few years, we have begun to emerge as intermediaries between education, practice and the new technologies. We have begun to provide new computational research orientations to the generation of knowledge about design and design&planning process. Over and above acting as a medium of access to tools, we have begun to function in new roles in our schools as strengthening the presence of theories and the intellectual content of design and planning education.

The emergence of new media and techniques are further influencing our function as interpreters of the conceptual implications of change and development. This is the challenge of ECAADE Vienna 97. We believe that it will be an exhilarating experience.
