title Full-Scale Exercices: Spatial Experiments in Lausanne and Vienna
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part C, pp. 17-20
summary This contribution deals with the question, what the simulation in full-scale can convey to the architecture students within their architecture studies. Is it predominantly their independant investigation of architectural space, an aid for decision making regarding their confrontation with "space" as such? Or should the student rather rely on his own imagination? Apart from some exeptions it is the built space that is the subject of all and every planning work, and it is then at the latest that all the advantages and shortcomings are uncovered. Spatial experiments performed is Lausanne in Vienna are introduced, special attention been given to the specific methodical procedure involved.

title TOOLS FOR VISUAL SIMULATION OF SPACE AND THEIR USE BY STUDENTS
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part B, pp. 33-38
summary Most visual representations of architectural space are still done using drawings of ground plan, section and view. Yet, when experience is lacking - as with students or laypeople - these two-dimensional representations hardly show their correspondence to a three-dimensional reality. This article examines the various visual techniques for spatial simulation available today and their implementation by students involved with architectural projects.

title A NEW SCANNING SKY SIMULATOR
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part B, pp. 43-48
summary A sky simulator has been developed to study daylighting systems on scale models (diffuse component of daylight). This apparatus is of a completely new concept (scanning sky simulator) and has numerous advantages in comparison with similar devices. It allows in particular the reproduction of any sky condition and distinguishes itself by easy calibration, reduced maintenance and moderate electric consumption. The simulator is equipped with a measuring and visualisation system which allows the user to simultaneously carry out quantitative studies (profile of daylight factors) and qualitative studies (visual lighting effects). In this paper, a description of the system and its functioning as well as an application example are given.

title The Uses of Inconsistency in Design
source New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1992. pp. 1-13 : ill. includes bibliography.--- This article is the introduction chapter to the book
summary In this paper two of the central dogmas underlying most current theories of design evaluation are challenged: that the representations used by a designer must be well formed, and that a designer must have a consistent belief framework within which to make judgements about design proposals. The crucial roles in design of ambiguous and inconsistent representations and provisional beliefs are examined, and a model of design exploration based on nonmonotonic modes of reasoning is sketched

title SAD - SIMULATOR AIDED DESIGN
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part B, pp. 39-42
summary The multi-level, multidimensional nature of architecture means that the only way to experience it and evaluate it is by moving within the buildings and the environment they constitute. Until today, architectural projects could only be observed after they had been finished. The recently developed environmental simulator is the solution to the problem. With the simulator and scale models we can observe the experience of moving around within the buildings and thus make a significant improvement in the certainty of the assumed architectural experience and content while the project is still under design.

title Computers, Video and Architecture
source CAAD Instruction: The New Teaching of an Architect? [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Barcelona (Spain) 12-14 November 1992, pp. 377-378
summary The prime objective of this study is the analysis and the understanding of the underlying architectural principles (ideas) behind the particular seminar work that they have been given. Although this study is limited to one building its real significance lies not only in what it tells us about it, but also what it reveals about architecture itself. By distilling and comparing these buildings and stripping away the circumstances of their creation, we are shown universal principles of their design. This universality invites comparison to other buildings far removed in time and place.

title Electronic Collage
source CAAD Instruction: The New Teaching of an Architect? [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Barcelona (Spain) 12-14 November 1992, pp. 241-250
summary A painting is always a potential form of collage. The discovery made by Braque and Picasso was already implied in the carefully-done executions of tapestries backgrounds and mural decorating of all the italian and flemish paintings which started to be produced since Giotto's, where the represented and the presented were mixed up. And also, in a more pedantic way, in a famous painting of Courbet "L'Atelier du Peintre, allegorie reelle" (1885). In this work, the artist is shown sitting in front of his work, grasping a brush with his right hand while holding a palette, which is at the centre of the composition, in his left hand. There are some figures surrounding the master, some nearer, others further away; in the corners of the atelier one can still see silhouettes which we don't really know whether they belong to real characters or to painted ones on the master's canvases. This ambiguity brings us back to the foreground, to this central palette where the colours, distributed in heaps are, simultaneously, concretion and representation, real matter and figurative matter.

title Education in Computing - Computing in Education
source CAAD Instruction: The New Teaching of an Architect? [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Barcelona (Spain) 12-14 November 1992, pp. 387-398
summary The theme of this presentation which is entitled 'Education in Computing & Computing in Education' is certainly of great importance in the present climate characterized on the one hand by availability of highly efficient hardware, low-cost procedures and environments which are of great interest also as far as education is concerned. Within this topic it is of primary importance to ask oneself the question 'To learn architecture with computers must students learn computers?', and should the answer be 'yes', to ask 'To what extent? What level of complexity needs to be attained in order to realize this aim? What resources need to be dedicated to the learning of computer science? Should deep involvement be necessary, at what point should we refer to a computer scientist?' In an attempt to answer these questions, it is useful to examine the state of the art within computer science vs. engineering and computer science vs. education.

title From Notion to Motion
source CAAD Instruction: The New Teaching of an Architect? [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Barcelona (Spain) 12-14 November 1992, pp. 543-551
summary Going from notion to motion is a way, or a working system. It means the illustration in motion of critical written topics. It's also an indirect channel to normalize the use of CAD and other kind of software and periferials in a School of Architecture held only by a user technology. We deal with texts and the choice of these is absolutely determinant. First of all because of the volition of using those which time has allowed to clearly decant and now are seen together with the answers or continuities that they have generated. That is to say, we do not write on the subjects we talk about, we illustrate, in motion, the arguments that authors have already written about them. We refer to notion in the sense that we always set off from a seminal argument. But also because we collect, if necessary, its revisions or extensions. This is to say we try to track the notion helping ourselves with the motion.

title Form And Performance in Design Education (Basic Architectural Unit 5)
source CAAD Instruction: The New Teaching of an Architect? [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Barcelona (Spain) 12-14 November 1992, pp. 535-542
summary There are some fundamental issues in todays architectural education which seem important yet very hard to achieve. One of this issues is the interdependence between design and technology. There is one group in architectural education which beliefs that the question of how to conceive (arch.) and how to construct (arch.) are interdependent. Consequently in this line of thinking the design concept requires verification on a technological level. The second issue which has often been debated is performance. Related to it is a line of thinking which is not satisfied with the formal issues of design - and how it looks, but wants to carry design to point where you also know - what it does and with it how much it costs. Cost-consciousness is the final issue addressed. We all know that there are limits to what a school can do or what a school can be. And, there is an essential difference between practise and education. Yet at the same time the argument is that only consciousness is required thus leading to the basic understanding that form performance and costs are interrelated and interdependent issues in architectural design.

title Defining Virtual Reality: Dimensions Determining Telepresence
source Journal of Communication, Vol. 24 No. 4 (Autumn 1992): 73-93
summary Virtual reality (VR) is typically defined in terms of technological hardware. This paper attempts to cast a new, variable-based definition of virtual reality that can be used to classify virtual reality in relation to other media. The defintion of virtual reality is based on concepts of "presence" and "telepresence," which refer to the sense of being in an environment, generated by natural or mediated means, respectively. Two technological dimensions that contribute to telepresence, vividness and interactivity, are discussed. A variety of media are classified according to these dimensions. Suggestions are made for the application of the new definition of virtual reality within the field of communication research.

title THE MEASURABLE AND THE UNMEASURABLE OR - FROM FORM TO DESIGN TO EXISTANCE
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part B, pp. 55-62
summary This article discusses the architectural design process from two sides of the spectrum: the formal exercises of experts and the participatory process involving users. The "place" of the full-scale-modelling laboratory at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne is then assessed with respect to this spectrum. It may seem that activities in a full-scale laboratory are closer to the participation process than to formal exercises. However, activities of the full-scale laboratory in Lausanne may best be situated around the middle of the design process. It is clearly within the realm of the measurable (since each construction can easily be measured.) Yet, it does not quite correspond to the real building; it remains an abstraction, a model. And in this quality of abstraction lies the potential to give form to the unmeasurable. It is a tool which allows a transformation of the unmeasurable aspects of an idea into the unmeasurable of existence.

title Oberhausen ”Center” — Marketstreet under One Roof
source Endoscopy as a Tool in Architecture [Proceedings of the 1st European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 951-722-069-3] Tampere (Finland), 25-28 August 1993, pp. 99-108
summary Oberhausen/Germany is said to be the birth place of the Ruhr industry. At present we can witness a unique structural change in the history of this city. Well into the sixties still an internationally renowned industrial location for coal and steel Oberhausen shall, according to the plans of local and regional governments, be developed into a center of service industries of top European niveau within the next three years. This development was and is the logical consequence of its salient position in the nexus of important European traffic routes. If one includes nearby Holland which is situated to the northwest Oberhausen can draw on the resources of a substantial market area. Attractive services provided, it can and shall be developed into an international center of attraction for more than 13 million people within a travel time radius of only 60 minutes. In its present borders, the town comprises the communities of Sterkrade, Osterfeld and old Oberhausen which had been independent up to 1929. On their joint boundaries a competitive metropolis of coal related and heavy industry developed, and that particularly after the Second World War. Oberhausen had excellent connections on water, rail and road with all the supraregional transportation networks. The continuous economic power of the settlement area could, apparently, not be questioned. At the beginning of the sixties Oberhausen was hit the harder by the downfall of this seemingly safe economic branch. Up to 1992 almost 40 000 jobs were lost in the city. Within 30 years Oberhausen lost everything it had gained in the years since its foundation. In the heart of the city a huge industrial wasteland was left.

title MOCK-UP SYSTEM WAGENINGEN: DEVELOPMENT, LIMITATION AND FUTURE
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part A, pp. 15-18
summary A brief description of the development of the Mock-up System (MUS) in the context of the Wageningen training program. The students are first taught some keywords in understanding of the building process. They are then trained to express how they want to live (theory) and later on they confront themselves with what they have built in the MUS (practice) . Besides being an educational tool, the MUS is used for pre-building evaluation and research questions. The drawbacks or limitations of the system (outdoor reality versus indoor simulation) and future use by different target groups are also discussed in this paper. The power of the MUS is, and will continue to be, the concrete building of communicational results and the generation of communication by doing so.

title TOOLS RECONSIDERED: SIX AFFIRMATIONS
source Proceedings of the 4rd European Full-Scale Modelling Conference / Lausanne (Switzerland) 9-12 September 1992, Part B, pp. 49-54
summary This paper intends to formulate and discuss some unavoidable questions about the use of drawings, models and other tools by architects and other people concerned with architectural projects. These questions are presented as provocative affirmations: Every tool is an obstacle. Every tool is a trap. There is no complete tool. Fast tools shorten the time for reflection. Better tools don't automatically produce better architecture. Every real building betrays previous drawings, models, etc.The article shows that the choice of tools and the manner of their application are not innocent, that - independantly from the working-situation - tools must be considered from a critical standpoint and with particular attention to complementarities between several tools. We finally identify the development, discussion and valuation of concrete spatial qualities as the most difficult stake of such indirect working methods.
