title O ensino da disciplina de informática aplicada à arquitetura: Uma experiência pedagógica [The teaching of the course "Computer Science Applied to Architecture": A Pedagogical Experience]
source SIGraDi 2004 - [Proceedings of the 8th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Porte Alegre - Brasil 10-12 november 2004
summary This paper argues about one teaching experience that begun at the present semester in a subject called Informática Aplicada à Arquitetura. This subject is part of the third semester.s course in Architecture and Urbanism. Although, many new experiences that shows some didactic changes, that subject was structured in bases of an old .AUTOCAD course.. Our proposition was changing in this structure and introducing a discussion about new methodology of teaching of .Informática Aplicada a Arquitetura.. The general objective is discussing about a new methodology of teaching this subject in architecture and urbanism course. The paper conclude that, in spite of a very preliminary conclusion, it shows that is fundamental changing the idea of this subject introducing new discursion and new form of adapt ting this subject with the new concept of design in architecture.

title Testing the Benefits of Animation
source AVOCAAD First International Conference [AVOCAAD Conference Proceedings / ISBN 90-76101-01-09] Brussels (Belgium) 10-12 April 1997, pp. 255-262
summary This paper presents the results of an attempt to empirically test the hypothesis that expanding the range of graphic formats used in architectural communication can lead to an increase in effectiveness. To be specific, the comprehension of users was tested to measure the effectiveness of computer generated animation in comparison with still images. The dynamic functioning of a natural ventilation system was explained to two matched groups of building users. The explanation was presented in an animated video to one group and in still images to the other group. Immediately after viewing the group which viewed the animated version demonstrated a superior comprehension in a multiple-choice questionnaire test.

title The Phidias Hypercad System: Extending CAD with Hypermedia
source From Research to Practice [ACADIA Conference Proceedings] Big Sky (Montana - USA) 4-6 October 1990, pp. 145-156
summary Phidias is software which integrates computer-aided design graphics with hypermedia to create a hypermedia CAD - or hyperCAD - system. Phidias allows architects to develop building form while having immediate and nearly effortless access to a rich store of textual, numerical, and graphical information. This information access can make a wide variety of design literature and research findings available to architects in a way and at a time that they can easily use it. Thus, Phidias is intended to help bridge the gap between architectural research and practice.

title Visualization of construction planning information
source Proceedings of Intelligent User Interface 98, ACM, San Francisco, CA
summary A construction schedule helps planners to identity potential construction problems prior to actual building construction. Planners must envision the sequence of construction, the workspace logistics, and utilization of resources and equipment in space and over time. This paper discusses methods of generating, visuaMng, and evahrating construction planning information with CAD based tools. We use a construction example to illustrate how feature extraction of 3D CAD models can help identify construction problems and evaluate the quality of a construction plan through 4D analysis and 4D annotation.

title Learning From Characterized Designs
source Southampton: CM Publications, 1987. pp. 347-359
summary Designs can be described by the morphism between two descriptor sets: decisions and performances. Characterized designs are those in which both decisions and their consequent performances are articulated. Pareto optimization is discussed as a means of structuring performances and decisions. The induction algorithm ID3 is presented as a means of abstracting general relationships from sets of characterized designs. An example from the domain of building design is presented

title Creative Processes : Can They be Automated?
source Design Computing Unit, Department of Architectural and Design Science, University of Sydney, 1989. pp. 69-94. CADLINE has abstract only
summary This paper attempts to identify the nature of creative processes and the relationship of those processes to the automated information processing techniques. Creative processes are characterized in terms of three categories of activity: problem solving, selection and reminding. Intuitive control is identified as a necessary component of any process capable of yielding a creative outcome. The nature of intuitive control is explored. The possibility of automating such control is considered. The implications of the presented characterization of creative processes in relation to the development of fully-automated systems and semi-automated support systems are described

title Urban Prototyping: Socializing the Design to Fabrication process

summary Within the context of burgeoning urban populations and the rolling back of state resources, there is growing interest in ways in which citizens may participate in the creation of resilient and livable cities. This paper proposes the concept of ‘urban prototyping,’ and employs a design research methodology to develop and document the socially-sponsored design and digital fabrication of an urban shelter. We explore how we might use networked design and fabrication technologies to leverage the social capital locked within non-professional communities so that our current cities might evolve into whatever our next cities need to be.

source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 353-366
summary In recent years, sensors and sensor networks have been broadly employed in buildings to monitor diverse aspects of the built environment. Sensors are commonly used to track indoor and outdoor climatic variables such as humidity, temperature, and solar radiation; and to recognize patterns in the activity of people. We propose that in addition to this common instrumental role, data gathered from sensors could also play an important aesthetic and cultural role in the design of engaging architectural spaces. We describe a design study that explores the use of sensor data as a means to qualitatively differen-tiate between spaces within the building, a role traditionally performed by architectural ornament.

source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This report examines the application of physical models and digital ones as tools in the design of reinforced concrete shells. The development of computational processes and consequently the process of analyzing the structure as the finite element method allows more complex forms to be applied in architectural projects. The research demonstrates the potential of this tool, through the analysis of contemporary projects such as the “Memorial da America Latina” of Oscar Niemeyer, with modeling of the structure in ANSYS.

summary Classified as a historical monument, it is the world’s third biggest building and was once the oldest airport in service. In accordance with the designs of Ernst Sagebiel, a student of Erich Mendelsohn, construction work started in 1936. The outbreak of the Second World War prevented the completion of the building project. After the war, the area became an American military base, gaining international fame in the postwar period, thanks to the Allied airlift Luftbru_cke.
