title A Usability-based Building Model for Environmental Behavior Simulation
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 90-97
summary This paper describes a usability-based building model we developed for behavior simulation in design phase, and a systematic approach to implement it. Our model possesses not only geometric information of design elements but also non-geometric information of these elements, specifically, the relationships between the elements and the intended users. This relationship, which was implicitly understood by the designer, now becomes explicit to the simulated users. It utilizes CAD models and automates the conversion from CAD models to usability models and therefore requires minimal additional effort in preparing building data for behavior simulation, which has proven to be efficient and effective.

title The Singularity of Design Creativity
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. x-xvi
summary Singularity is the moment when an arithmetic progression converts into a geometric and acceleration takes off. Artificially creative design, as is manifested through the use of contemporary digital tools, is at such a moment in time and its impact on our cultural evolution is undeniable. A few decades ago, in the earlier days of computer aided design, we were asking whether CAD really had any effect on the quality of design and on our physical environment. We now know it does and the examples of a new architecture are plentiful. We shall look at some examples as more appear daily.

title MultiCAD – MOGA A System for Conceptual Style Design of Buildings
source Conference Proceedings of the 9th 3IA (2006) International Conference on Computer Graphics and Artificial Intelligence, p73-84
summary The synthesis of the three-dimensional morphology of a building is one of the most important tasks in architecture. Space planning and morphology are of the most interesting and complex of architectural design problems. Architectural design is guided by the constraints on the spatial composition and the morphology of the final building. During the conceptual phase problems are characterised by fuzziness and complexity. Building requirements are ill-defined and contradictory. The designer should explore the solution space for alternative building solutions while refining requirements and style preferences. In this paper we present the development and implementation of an Evolutionary Declarative Design system prototype for the aid of conceptual style design of buildings. The system is a specific MultiCAD prototype system including architectural knowledge, architectural style and a multi-objective genetic algorithm. Two design cases are presented for two different architectural styles. The applicability and efficiency of the system prototype are discussed.

source SIGraDi 2006 - [Proceedings of the 10th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Santiago de Chile - Chile 21-23 November 2006, pp. 350-354
summary Virtual Environments and their Interconnectivity in the Web for the Urban Planning. This work presents the creation of virtual environments based on the urban space of the Plaza Baralt in Maracaibo, Venezuela; in defined historical moments as study scenarios, using autonomous virtual agents. The selection of the scenarios is based in the analysis of the place in the present, and the study of multimedia material of the period 1920-2006. The main objective is developing virtual environments, incorporating the interconnectivity in the Web into a multi-user system, for the urban planning. Methodologically, it's divided into the following phases: 1) Data search; 2) Study of the social, cultural, religious and economical activities of the square; 3) Analysis of the urban space; 4) Virtual reconstruction of the scenarios in the present and in the period between 1900 - 1927; 5) VRML exporting ; 6) Characters' animation; 7) Integration of the models into a multi-user system; and 8) Web event for the presentation of the results.

summary In this paper we report on ongoing research in which the implications of urban scale pervasive computing (always and everywhere present) are investigated for urban life and urban design in the heritage environment of the city of Bath. We explore a theoretical framework for understanding and designing pervasive systems as an integral part of the urban landscape. We develop a framework based on Hillier's Space Syntax theories and Kostakos' PSP framework which encompasses the analysis of space and spatial patterns, alongside the consideration of personal, social and public interaction spaces to capture the complex relationship between pervasive systems, urban space in general and the impact of the deployment of pervasive systems on people's relationships to heritage and to each other. We describe these methodological issues in detail before giving examples from early studies of the types of result we are beginning to find.

source SIGraDi 2006 - [Proceedings of the 10th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Santiago de Chile - Chile 21-23 November 2006, pp. 117-121
summary For a contribution to problem solving processes at different areas, this paper presents the use of Digital Graphics as a knowledge object for a distance teaching/learning workshop. At the Learning Management System, different theoretical subjects with supporting tools were proposed, and exercises requiring collaborative work. An specific didactic situation using available technologies at Internet for 3D modelling, combined with satellite images and geographic information program was proposed. The final works were then shared by a 3D models repository. As a complement of this experience and in relation with their professional work, every student proposed a new didactic situation including Learning Objects, sharing them with the others members of the group, through conceptual maps built up in a co-operative way.

source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. i-ix
summary To advance the theme of communicating spaces we report on a case study of a market precinct known as the Barras, about one mile from the centre of the city of Glasgow and relate this to our investigation into intelligent environments. In the latter case we deploy Lego MindstormsTM RCX robot processing to explore interactions between a mobile sensing robot and simple environmental controls: movements of sliding screens in response to an autonomous mobile sensor. We speculate on the application of these techniques to augment physical marketplaces. We extend the lessons from these studies to a consideration of multiple modalities in sensory experience, multi-agent systems, and the use of sound, the human voice and repetition for defining and augmenting spaces.
