title Computer-integrated collaborative design and operation in the construction industry
source Automation in Construction 7 (6) (1998) pp. 485-492
summary The construction industry is emerging as the next frontier for computer-integrated technologies, just as the manufacturing industry did 25 years ago. More recently, the emergence of Internet–Intranet technologies is creating new mechanisms for collaborative design and operation that were previously impossible. The advances that have occurred in the manufacturing industry in the areas of collaborative design, intelligent process planning and computer-integrated manufacturing provide significant insights for formulating analogous paradigms for computer-integrated construction. However, in many aspects, the development of enabling technologies (for design, operation and decision-making) to achieve this transformation in the construction industry is not as trivial as repackaging existing technologies and tools that have been developed for the manufacturing industry. In this paper, we draw attention to some of the significant research opportunities and challenges that exist in these areas of collaborative design and computer-integrated construction, and outline some related researches at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

title AVOCAAD, the Scheme
source Computerised Craftsmanship [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Paris (France) 24-26 September 1998, pp. 239-252
summary The Leonardo da Vinci pilot project AVOCAAD (Added Value of Computer Aided Architectural Design) aims to innovate the use of computers in architecture. Hereto, new course materials and structures are developed. Focus is on new unusual ways to use software in Architecture. In this paper, we first describe the context using the general AVOCAAD statement. In order to give structure to the developed materials, a scheme was developed. This AVOCAAD scheme is given and described. Some examples of concrete course materials are given in the next section. In order to innovate in the architectural curriculum as well as in design offices, these materials will be available through the Internet. Hereto, a web-structure for the exercises was developed. Some experience and conclusions are given in the final section.

title What offers Virtual Reality to the Designer?
source Proceedings of Conference on Integrated Design & Process Technology, Berlin, Germany
summary Virtual Reality being a relatively new technology receives much attention in scientific research as well as in public news media. In the first case because of the technical problems that still have to be solved to offer the functionality and performance required by the application developers. In the second case because of the appealing interface between the application user and the computer system. Design in general and especially architectural design has a long-standing tradition in solving design problems by mixing artistic and scientific approaches. Research has resulted in design theories and methodologies in order to better understand the design process and from that to improve the quality of the designed product. Before applying Virtual Reality as an enabling technology for design, the characteristics of the technology and of the application must be specified. This is not an easy job since VR is not yet very 'stable' and design is a very complex process. From the knowledge and experience in the Calibre research group a first draft of a specification is presented so that we can draw some conclusions on the applicability of VR for design.

title THE EMERGING DIGITAL STYLE: Attention shift in architectural style recognition
source CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 633-635
summary “Style” has long been an important index to observe the design thinking of designers in architecture. Gombrich (1968) defined style as a particular selection from the alternatives when doing things; Ackerman (1963) considered that a distiguishable ensemble of certain characteristics we call a style; Schapiro (1961) pointed out that style is constant forms, and sometimes the constant elements, qualities and expression; Kirsch (1998), Cha and Gero (1999) thought of style as a form element and shape pattern. As Simon and others referred to, style emerged from the process of problem solving, Chan (1994, 2001) ever devised a serious of experiments to set up the operational definitions of style, further five factors that relate to generating styles. Owing to that the greater part of sketches and drawings in the design process couldn’t be replaced by computer-aided design systems (Eisentraut, 1997), designers must shift between different problem-solving methods while facing different design problems. The purpose in this research is to discuss the influences of computer usage on style generation and style recognition: The employment of certain procedural factors that occurred in the design processes that using conventional media is different from the ones that using computer media? Do personal styles emerge while designers shifting between different media in the design processes? Does any unusual phenomenon emerge while accustomed CAD-systems designers recognizing a style?

title Shape Cognition in Design - Constructing a Cognitive Model of Shapes for Different Design Fields
source CAADRIA ‘98 [Proceedings of The Third Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 4-907662-009] Osaka (Japan) 22-24 April 1998, pp. 347-354
summary The purpose of this paper is to reveal the characteristics of shape cognition of different design fields in the ‘intuitive design’ domain, and to construct a cognitive model of shape cognition for different design fields. The research procedure used in this study consisted of two phases. The first phase was applied to protocol analysis study of three professional designers in architectural design, industrial design and graphic design respectively. In the second phase, one controlled laboratory experiment was designed to reveal the characteristics of designers’ shape perception in different ‘intuitive design’ fields. By these empirical findings, we found that designer’s cognitive processes of shapes would be not alike in different design fields. The results suggest that in different design fields, designer’s shape cognition processes will be different, and in each design field, similar cognitive processes of shape contained different design meanings.

title A Case Study of the Virtual Design Studio in Practice : The Olympic Stadium for Krakow 2006
source Computerised Craftsmanship [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Paris (France) 24-26 September 1998, pp. 253-261
summary Continually being redeveloped since its inception six years ago, Virtual Design Studio (VDS) represents a new method of practicing and teaching design. This paper focuses on a recent project which used VDS in a professional context: a design competition entry for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. Separated by six time zones, the authors offer distinctive views of VDS, discussing the creative aspects of long-distance design collaboration using both synchronous and asynchronous modes of communication. The authors consider Information Technology (IT) as a facilitator for design collaboration, and examine in this paper the extent to which this new condition expands the possibilities of creative design work.

title Shaping Structures
source New York: John Wiley and Sons
summary In Shaping Structures, an engineer and an architect, both longtime teachers of structures at major American universities, collaborate to present an inspired synthesis of the creative and the technical, explicating both the principles of statics and their application to the fascinating task of finding good form for structures. This richly visual volume features: * An easily understood development of the fundamentals of statics * Step-by-step demonstrations, using both numerical and graphical techniques, of simple yet powerful methods for finding form and forces for arched structures, suspended structures, cable-stayed structures, and highly efficient trusses * 120 photographs and more than 300 crisp drawings that illustrate and explain the magnificent structural triumphs of master architects and engineers -including Gustave Eiffel's famous tower, Robert Maillart's soaring bridges, Pier Luigi Nervi's landmark Turin Exhibition Hall, and many others * Calculations in both SI metric and conventional units throughout the book Requiring only the most rudimentary mathematical background yet accurate and fully functional, Shaping Structures provides an inviting point of entry to the study of structural design for engineering and architecture students -proving that the science of statics doesn't have to be lifeless, simplistic, or dull.

title Analyse architecturale et infographie
source Computerised Craftsmanship [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Paris (France) 24-26 September 1998, pp. 239-252
summary Dans cet article, nous nous intéresserons à trois expériences pédagogiques dans le cadre de l'enseignement de l'infographie. Il s'agit de montrer que l'infographie et l'histoire de l'architecture, champs apparemment distincts, peuvent faire l'objet d'approches transversales. Nous commencerons par l?examen de la modélisation par description textuelle pour ensuite nous intéresser à la modélisation procédurale à base de connaissances architecturales. Ces modes d?accès et de constitution "alternatifs" de modèles infographiques représentent un moyen privilégié de confronter la modélisation infographique à l'analyse architecturale notamment par le biais de la modélisation du savoir architectural. Nous verrons comment ces exercices confrontent nos étudiants à la fois à l'analyse architecturale, à une approche de la programmation structurée ou orientée-objet ainsi qu'à une utilisation "critique" des outils de conception assistée. Nous terminerons par une expérience d'animation infographique qui questionne la pertinence de l'image de synthèse comme support à l'analyse architecturale et à la communication de celle-ci.

source II Seminario Iberoamericano de Grafico Digital [SIGRADI Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-97190-0-X] Mar del Plata (Argentina) 9-11 september 1998, pp. 146-15 3
summary This paper discusses the problems emerging from the fast process of transformation of CAD techniques related to their teaching. In the first part, the evolution of cultural trends under the pressure of globalization is connected with its effects on the University teaching. Next, the specific problems of architectural design concerning these cultural changes are presented followed by comments about their relation with the particular case of computer aided design. The last part of the paper is devoted to put together the themes discussed in the preceding parts as a basis to outline some alternative ways of CAD teaching.

summary For centuries, representations have preceded the actual construction of a building. From tracing the outline of a building in the dirt prior to excavation, to a very specific description produced with the help of a computer, the representations are always once removed from the hysical artifact being described.
