title Augmented Vision: Digital Devices and Post-processing for Experiential Learning
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 714-719
summary Today, digital devices and post-processing provide for rich mediated observations of places. When we observe the natural world through a digital lens, it alters perception and augments our understanding. Digital devices affect the observing reality through a bias of digital laws, thus participating by revealing layers of information concealed within the captured scene. This paper outlines strategies for digitally augmenting our innate powers of observation and facilitating critical experiential learning through digital visual notation. Digitally augmented observation techniques were tested during student and professor related travel/study with Ball State University. Examples of time-based motion capture such as serial digital photography, post processed image manipulation, and digital video/still collage with multimedia narrative will be used to illustrate how digitally enhanced augmented vision techniques render observation of the everyday world in new terms. Additionally, the paper points to a trajectory for future digital notes scholarship by examining the potential for innovative new pedagogies, and situating the discourse in relation to an existing body of scholarship on traditional visual notes.

title VIRTUAL CONTEXT - INVESTIGATING THE CHARACTERISTICS AND OPPORTUNITIES OF DIGITAL VISUALISATION MEDIA FOR SITUATED APPROACHES TO ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IN AN URBAN ENVIRONMENT
source Delft University Press
summary This research initiative addresses the issue of Design in relation to Virtual Context.

Central to this study are the innovative potentials and instrumental opportunities of computer based media techniques, capable of generating interactive models and changing perspectives for the benefit of urban and architectural design.

The ambition was to not only make a contribution to the existing body of knowledge concerning digital technologies and their applications, but explore theoretical conditions which might help define and stimulate further study.

From the outset, the focus was on furthering the opportunities for computer based representation media in creative design. On the basis of a series of explorative studies the subject of this research was targeted: the issue of Design in Context, or more specifically: Design(ing) in a Virtual Context.

During the process there was a marked shift in the conception of the subject from – more or less immersive – VR technologies in the direction of approaches which might be expected to become readily available in practice and education and could be effective in actual design processes. This insight also brought about a shift in emphasis from realism per-se towards creating a sense of situatedness.

The design representation system which was developed was intended to not just allow for one type of model view, but to afford an array of different views, from which the designer would be able to choose freely, depending on the phase and focus of design as well as personal preferences. A series of interface prototypes and support tools were developed especially and successively tested experimentally. 

For the intended final design driven experimental study, different virtual context models were considered. Eventually, an integral –  purely fictitious – design ‘environment’ was constructed in the computer, so that the workings of the proposed system and its components would be tested systematically.

A conscious choice was made for an in depth study, on a relatively modest scale, which would a certain amount of mutual involvement between designer and researcher, to confront the participants with the finer aspects of the proposed system in a relatively short time and to gather detailed data. A half dozen design professionals were invited to participate in a closely monitored experimental exercise.

The results of this study therefore do not offer straightforward, indisputable facts, to be considered representative for the design community as a whole, but indicate that the working methods of the individual designers – when discovering aspects of the site, developing and presenting proposals and reflecting on the qualities of represented designs – tend to vary considerably. For this reason the interactive representation system proved to be of value. Participants could express different view preferences, with more or less realistic image modes being used in different phases of their design developments, with varying experiences of situatedness. Some of the design professionals participants were very appreciative of the system’s opportunities, others tended to be more ‘set in their ways’.

The results of this experimental study indicate that there may particularly be opportunities for interface applications which are able to function interactively, offering individual designers –  as well as others involved in evaluating design proposals – a variety of tools with which to approach specific design artefacts in their changing contexts. Virtual models can play not only an important role as a ‘reminder’ for the designer but also to other parties playing an active role in the design and implementation processes. Interactive environment models are not only promising as exploration tools for existing sites, but could be valuable to test the impact of a design on its location. This could be especially interesting if the site is difficult or impossible to visit or as yet a virtual construction. In addition such an approach might be beneficial for objective comparison and evaluation of design proposals in competitions and in education as well as in on-line collaborative design projects where the context is still in the process of being developed.

title Virtual Architecture as Representation for Creative Design Process - Through a Collaborative eDesign Studio
source Digital Design: The Quest for New Paradigms [23nd eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-3-2] Lisbon (Portugal) 21-24 September 2005, pp. 37-45
summary Using Virtual Architecture (VA) as a general scheme for representations to sustain the reflection activities involved in the design process can help students to initiate creative design ideas. Because of its implicit abstract nature, VA can be used, to represent original ideas or processes, or well-known architectural theories to articulate design ideas. Furthermore, VA as a mean of expression, turn out to be a source of inspiration for students who perceive it as medium with very few limits with which to develop, explore and express their design intuitions. A recent collaborative edesign studio experience is reported to illustrate the benefit observed. Using three examples out of ten student projects, we show how designs and design process have been characterized by those virtual representations. In fall semester 2004, the edesign studio took place between the Schools of Architecture of Toulouse and Université Laval in Québec. VA was both an academic and a studio topic at Laval while the other school students had a traditional design task to tackle, namely the rehabilitation of Chapou University Residences for students in Toulouse. Students from both schools composed each edesign team. In addition, three common architectural themes were web-documented and introduced to both classes: room, as defined by Louis Kahn: “a space which knows what it wants to be is a room”; color, as an architectural medium in dialectic with structure; and body-space relationships, as articulated by Gilles Deleuze and its projection to cyberspace. From the edesign studio results, we are arguing that virtual architecture should be looked at not only as new domain to be investigated by architects and taught in academic studios but also as a new medium of design to develop and explore design intuitions through virtual representations.

summary We are engaged in the process of exploiting gestural signs and pedestrian postures for the purpose of utilizing additional possibilities through the creation of a new Wearable Electronic Garment, as medium for inscription. Animated, cyber-performers move, deform, and re-arrange themselves, augmenting the dimensions of expressiveness/meaning during performance. The cognitive approach produced by thinking in/out of these bodies will similarly trigger changes in consciousness, affecting content and virtual story telling. Together we explore the interaction of text/gestures as movement—as in dance, human day- to-day postures, and our capacity to embody and generate meaning. Cyber dancers use gestures in order to cybernetically inscribe them. The composed gestures become the source of intention that relates to itself; its communicating environment becomes a visualization of the self-reflexivity of both the dance and consciousness. The dance is between worlds of humans, cyber-humans, and the source language as transforms into the domain of visible thought.

title New enchantments: design, hypermedia, and motivation
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 69-74
summary From the analogy between computer and theater, such as proposed by Brenda Laurel, this paper aims to introduce a discussion on the possibility of contemporary dramaturgies’ contributions to the project of hypermedia interfaces that are able to motivate the users action. Some of Bertolt Brecht’s concepts, although namely opposed to Aristotle´s poetics, are briefly introduced as they refer to the idea of commitment with audience motivation. This approach requires the presentation of some key issues regarding the idea of engaging human-computer experiences. These issues evolve from Laurel’s theory, published in the early 1990s and focussed in the computer as a medium for action representation, to contemporary concerns that start to address the urge for new study fields related to the design of human-computer activities.

title The Post-Medium Condition

summary Theorists in art, architecture and visual media have described the digital world as a world of mediumlessness and proclaimed that the medium of a work, once the ontological determinant for the classification of the arts, is rendered meaningless by recent technological and cultural developments (Krauss, 2000; Negroponte, 1995; Manovich, 2001). Although indebted to specific media-based techniques and their attendant ideologies, software removes the material reality of techniques to an immaterial condition where the effects of material operations are reproduced abstractly. This paper asserts that a productive approach for digital design can be found in the acknowledgement that the importance of the digital format is not that it de-materializes media, but that it allows for the maximum intermingling of media. A re-conceptualization of media follows from this, defined now as, a set of conventions derived from the material conditions of a given technical support, conventions out of which to develop a form of expressiveness that can be both projective and mnemonic (Krauss, 2000). The paper will focus on the identification of these conventions towards the development of new forms of expressiveness in architecture. Further demonstration of the intermingling of materially-based conventions is carried out in the paper through a comparative analysis of contemporary works of art and architecture, taking installation art as a particular example. A new design approach based on the maximum intermingling of media takes account of integrative strategies towards the digital and the material and sees them as inextricably linked. In the digital “medium” different sets of conventions derived from different material conditions transfer their informational assets producing fully formed, material-digital ingenuity.

title On the Pedagogical Benefits of Incorporating Digital Media in the Teaching of Architectural History and Theory
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 2, pp. 109-115
summary This paper reports on the use of physical and digital media in a history and theories of twentieth century architecture and landscape course. An electronic bulletin board (ebb) was used to generate an open forum for critical dialogue on textual, physical, and digital media. It gave teachers and students the ability to observe the course in new ways. Student interactions with the ebb transformed a culture of hidden collaboration to an open exchange of ideas and concepts. Of particular interest here is the use of 3-D digital composing tools (VRML) that provided a simple, but powerful way to visualize ideas which physical representation often could not. This approach instilled a philosophy of linking design and theory, where history and theory are seen as a body of knowledge consciously brought to bear on design practice.

title Research on the design technique begun from "human activity" in an environmental design
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 2, pp. 26-37
summary In environmental design, an important point is that each person concerned deals with a specific aspect of a project, and it is important these people discuss with, arrive at consensus, and advance steadily. One general problem in this environmental initial design stage that should be mentioned is that of concentrating only on the act of building, "field and facility". That is, the human activity, such as use, maintenance management, etc. after construction, and building usage are seldom considered. The purpose of the research is to make sharing the image of "human activity" easy within a team, and the research proposes media which support this as part of a design technique which performs examination and proposal smoothly, and can examine "field and facility" continuously.

summary Throughout history, architecture has transposed contributions bound to structuralist focus or to musical composition. This is from linguistic and music respectively. New visualization systems show the possibility to give transpositions a new meaning, form the potentialities of hypermedia; locking for new projects parameters. This papers will show experimental workshop results developed within CI+D 2000 “New speeches and design process”. They study links and explore our work interrelating word – music and image. These processes are developed by people coming from literature, visual arts, music, and architecture areas. Lastly, the first results will be shown. Since parameters were transposed from music, by using NURBS forms, space prefiguration is tried out. [Full paper in Spanish]

summary It is presented a development of an exploratory experience about a hyper medial 4D and 5D space design workshop. The concept of 4D /5D space refers to a new representation order of the digital media that inserts space-time variables, where the subject’s action articulates the space. Directed by a group of professors, it was focused from different disciplines, and destined to a heterogeneous group of students. The work methodology recognizes and links the cyberspace, heterogenesis and morphogenesis concepts. As implications, it is observed the mutation of digital image-form creation, production, storage, interchange, interaction and social use, next to languages hybridation and representation systems. As conclusions, it is considered that the digital image-form is a random event, a result of an interrupted but not closed process where the creation vectors, procedures, direction variables and the subject prefiguration are the outstanding characteristics.

summary Space designers usually look for information on site before proceeding design. They image any possibilities of design, while they are on site. Restricted to traditional design media, if they want to develop their ideas further, they have to go back to desks. This kind of design process can capture only part of information of the site. Why not do some developments directly when designers are on the site? That is the starting point of this paper. The whole situation of site is very complicated, so it is very difficult discussing all the possibilities. In order to understand how to design on site, reducing the variations is needed. Tsai and Chang (2005) proposed a prototype about design on site, which focuses on land forming. So I chose interior as the site to reduce the variation and have more controllable factors. Still there are many factors effecting design on site, scale is very unique and very important factor of them. Beginners are difficult to really feel how long it is on the plan drawing, and even most advanced VR equipment still can’t fully present the rich information on the site. To experience the site though body, the main idea is how to propose a portable device that can support space designer to do design on site directly, with intuitional body movement and precise scale, and get feedback immediately.

summary The VR technology has been used as the application of architectural presentation tool in the field of industry. The high immersion and intuitive visual information are the great merits of design evaluation when we are using the virtual environments. But the distortion of distance perception in VR is a problem when the accuracy of distance presentation is required to evaluate the preliminary design concept precisely. In this paper, we have carried out some experiments about distance estimation in the immersive virtual environments to verity the factors and their influence. First, we verify the difference of distance estimation in the real and the virtual hallway. The result showed that subjects underestimate the walked distance in the condition of virtual hallway. At the next experiment about the influence of image-resolution, we have figured out the resolution has affected on the distance estimation in the virtual environments.

source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 575-579
summary This paper is based on the phenomenological approach of the imagination and poetic image of the philosopher Gaston Bachelard (1957, 1960), through a discussion of the role played by imaginary impulse in the comprehension and representation of urban nature. Our aim is to explore the epistemological potential of a poetic interpretation of eye-driven landscapes by an ontology of sight. We will do so by exploring two topopoetics themes given by Bachelard`s phenomenology, such as a blue sky deepness e o movement of intimate immensity, from which Win Wenders`s cinematic urban spaces will be analyzed. We believe the poetic contemplation of film framing would be a way from where the city and its eye-driven landscapes would meet their full human destiny. [Full paper in Portuguese]

title THE DIGITAL IMAGE IN THE MEDIATION BETWEEN ARCHITECT AND USER
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005
summary Digital mediation is considered to facilitate architect-user understanding, in order to enlarging the communicative competition, causing an involved attitude in the receptor. This paper proposes the study and analysis of the new communicative situation with the purpose of evaluate the impact of digital mediation in the understanding between producer and user. The investigation is focused as a comprehensive qualitative study. The process begins when the receptor contacts to media and then, it is able to observe attitudes and communicative competitions that play in the relationship. Variables involved in defi nition of digital mediation are: content, consumption ways, structures, digital image and alternative means. Observable attitudes of the receiver are organized in three categories: cognition, perceptive and emotive. Functional methodological tools are hoped to be found in order to evaluate the reach and infl uence of DM in the producer-user communication.

summary This paper suggests a method known as High Dynamic Range Image (HDRI) to pre-visualise architectural elements in three-dimensional (3D) environment used by Computer Graphic Imaging (CGI) film-makers to integrate 3D models and characters into live action background (special effect). This Intensification Research Priority Area (IRPA) grant project was developed to suggest ways to achieve effective rendering solution and composition of the final output. It will focus on experimental modelling of local cultural elements that provides solutions for radiosity-type effects and dirt shadings. A set of data from an established site (i.e. environment) was captured and represented in High Dynamic Range (HDR) file. This data is integrated with architectural elements (e.g. 3D objects) and then pre-rendered to get the 3D visualisation of the actual environment. Several different exposures were also captured and tested to establish the correct rendering and lighting condition. This earlier result shows that HDRI method provides accurate visualisation and drastically reduces the rendering time without compromising the data (images) with accurate lighting. This paper will demonstrate the process of HDRI, compare the visual impact with ‘radiosity’ technique and other related rendering solutions and present the results, which are useful for architectural animation, simulation and other modelling developments.

summary The goal of his work is to establish the foundation for several lines of research that derive from the study of spatial conducts, also from the relation between private and public and from the exploration of jeans of representation employed for this purpose. Three lines of research were explored according to two scales. The first one is called Major Narrative: its cognitive procedure is historical and generalizing. The other is called Minor Narrative and its cognitive procedure is particular and autobiographical. In both scales the exploration was organized through the conjunction of words and diagrams. By this method a permanent interaction was sought between written thought and spatial thought represented by images. The main conclusion obtained was that the conjunction between word and image produces new tools for spatial knowledge. Those can generate new ways for the understanding of territorial reality. This understanding can not be obtained by traditional architectural representations. [Full paper in Spanish]

summary This paper describes how the application of interactive three dimensional computer modelling enables students of architecture to gain a comprehensive insight into how buildings are made. An intimate exploration of what can be, in the student’s perception, a lacklustre subject area is revitalized through the use of virtual building models and introduces the student to the potentials of this medium in communicating their own design work. In addition the published case studies are navigated as one would a web site which is a familiar and comfortable format for the student. Original working drawings and specification provided by architects are utilised in generating detailed three dimensional virtual models of the complete building along with larger scale detail studies of particular building components. The models are then animated or transferred to VRML format for publication within interactive case studies. The case studies may be accessed via the department server for use by staff during lectures and seminars or informally by the individual student.

summary During the last few decades, the new technology has transformed the profession of architects and designers, and now significantly affects knowledge and abilities required by students and by professionals in order to realize their projects. This article presents methodologies used, experimental observations held, and results obtained in a research project aiming at verifying several hypotheses concerning the influence of computer use on the creative design process development in the architectural studio. Using the informative potential of observations on existing teaching methods and configurations, the research project aspires to reinforce the innovations and to propose recommendations for the teaching of architectural design using computer technology and communication networks. Micro experiments were performed with third year students in architecture. The scheme of the observations includes two design sessions at the beginning of the term: one with paper-and-pencil and the other one on a computer; and one design session at the end of the term – only on a computer. Thanks to this scheme, qualitative comparisons could be made between free-hand and computer-aided design on one hand, and between design on computer at the beginning and at the end of the term, on the other

summary The emotion of the data and the data of the emotion. The application of the Technologies of Information and Communication (TIC) in the processes of architectural design has expanded the spectrum of what can be observed from human living and habitable space. This way the average digital medium allows us to know more about our daily life; not only in the functional or productive moment but also in the nonfunctional and specifically emotional instances. This new media allows us to observe with more precision the human practices in their diverse states of mobility: rest, leisure, entertainment, distraction, etc. These observed and decoded qualities can be carried into data and then integrate it into the act of design as a fresh piece of information that can organize matter. To undertake this theme I present subsequently a process of design with 4 themes related digitally. Designing with Sounds, Digital Production, The house Messenger, Hardware and Software.
