title Excellence Criteria of Science in Architecture
source Digital Design: The Quest for New Paradigms [23nd eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-3-2] Lisbon (Portugal) 21-24 September 2005, pp. 639-646
summary The relation of the architectural community to the generally established scientific rules always seems to be problematic. The same refers to the general trend of increasing quantity by neglecting quality at the same time. Nevertheless, the present situation of the rising quantification in comparison to the wider context calls for special attention. The extent of socio-spatial consequences requires the identification of the wider system references, useful to introduce the lacking cultural criteria into the general evaluation system. Combined with the identification of the ‘scientific’ level in architecture, this could change the perception that architectural design lacks its scientific tradition. Both may stimulate architects to take their own scientific traditions more seriously, enhancing the tradition itself. The paper contributes to the discussion about the excellence criteria of science in architecture with the explanation of the ‘formal’ proofs of relevance and vitality of architectural research to replace the favoritised ‘impact factor’ differentiation, where it is still (or even more intensively) taken as the key criterion of research excellence.

title Architectural representation and new media
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 664-666
summary This work has the objective of utilizing as a way of representation of architetonic projects, the interactive multimedia, that inserts in it’s universe ways of static and moviments expressions , images, animations, musics, videos, present elements in the experiencie of space, what facilitates the compreension of the object. More than knowning the multimedia tools, as a project is represented, you must fully study it, recognize its principal characteristics and how to treat them in a way that the spectator experiences it, as a room or as a town.

title Lesson 1 in Design Computing Does not Have to be with Computers
source Digital Design: The Quest for New Paradigms [23nd eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-3-2] Lisbon (Portugal) 21-24 September 2005, pp. 311-318
summary This paper proposes basic design instruction as a possible setting for introducing the concept of design computing to architecture students in the first year of their education. The argument is based on two viewpoints. The first extends the positivistic understanding of computation to visual reasoning in general. The second recognizes visual design activity as a reasoning process. The author suggests that, in order for computation to be embedded in the ways of design thinking, an understanding of it needs to be built-in, both as concept and as practice, into learning about the design process. The study draws attention particularly to basic design instruction as a setting for design and computation to be learnt concurrently. Examples from the first year curriculum at Middle East Technical University are given to illustrate the discussion.

title Interactive Rind Modeling for Architectural Design
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 3 - no. 1, 93-106
summary The paper presents a new modeling technique for architectural design. Rind modeling provides for the easy creation of surfaces resembling peeled and punctured rinds. We show how the method's two main steps of creation of a shell or crust and then opening holes in the crust by punching or peeling can be encapsulated into a real time semi-automatic interactive algorithm.The rind modeling method allows us to develop a user-friendly tool for designers and architects. The new tool extends the abilities of polygonal modeling and allows designers to work on structured and consistent models for architectural design purposes. Rind modeling gives architects and designers a processing flexibility. It can be used in conceptual modeling during the early design phase. It can also be efficiently used for creating variety of shell structures for architectural design.
