title Urban Wiki: An online urban design system
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This research involves the framework and design of Urban Wiki, an online urban design system employing Wiki concept. The term Urban Wiki is created by the researchers; its concepts and methodology will be introduced and presented. Urban Wiki aims to creating a networking system of urban designs, enabling the collaborative work between users around the world. The presented system framework is created and tested by the researchers from two different locations in the world. The purpose of the research is to study how the users can share effectively designing/modeling large scale urban projects. An urban project of a village scale is used to demonstrate the potentials of Urban Wiki, presenting its functions and highlighting the possible uses in the urban area. Moreover, using the created models opens up various urban paths of designing, decision-making, and sharing. Techniques employed in the design of Urban Wiki can potentially be used to build up scalable, easily navigable and extensible models of large-scale entities.

summary In the paper the main stages of the evolution of aided design methods (which led to the formation of new spaces of creation) will be presented. The first way in which human tried make his work easier were direct introduction of scientific researches in practice. Comprehension and studying the structure of design process creates real conditions for increase of its efficiency. Thanks to methodological researches the systematic design methods were developed. The next steep was introducing the IT technologies into the design process. Firstly as a simple tool, and after as the participant of the creative process. Last years an idea of “direct designing” – the use of VR as an environment for the spatial forms creation was elaborated. The environment starts to play a role of an active mediator joining the real world, the men and the computer. In this environment the designer has access to the processes and sources of creative activity. The qualitatively new process of architectural designing arises.

summary Este trabajo describe el seminario de Diseño Generativo ofrecido en el programa de posgrado en el área de Arquitectura y Construcción en la Universidad de Campinas en el primer semestre de 2008. El curso tuvo como objetivo introducir el tema de los métodos sistemáticos de generación de alternativas de diseño, como base para el desarrollo de sistemas de CAAD. El método pedagógico del curso estuvo compuesto por presentaciones teóricas, lecturas, discusiones, y ejercicios prácticos. Los sistemas generativos más conocidos fueron categorizados en dos grandes grupos: el de combinaciones de elementos (como la enumeración sistemática de combinaciones y los algoritmos genéticos) y el de los sistemas basados en reglas (como los fractales y la gramática de formas). Además de constituirse en una oportunidad para proponer una categorización de los principales sistemas generativos, el curso también permitió que se hiciera una reflexión sobre la importancia de la introducción de los sistemas generativos y de las técnicas de programación en los cursos de pre-grado y pos-grado.

title Shape Grammars and Historical Town Renovations: A Case Study in Monte Alegre Do Sul

summary Shape grammars have been used in architecture for analysis and synthesis - in the first case, mainly for the characterization of styles and in the later for the generation of novel compositions. The present research proposes the use of shape grammars for establishing guidelines for the requalification of historical areas that have lost their original characteristics due to improper renovations. In order to develop and test the proposed method, a study was carried out in a small Brazilian town called Monte Alegre do Sul. The town was chosen because its original urban morphology, developed in the XIXth century, is still relatively well preserved, although part of the original façades have been transformed. The objective of the research is to develop a shape grammar to set guidelines for the requalification of the already renovated façades in Monte Alegre do Sul.

title Visual sensitivity analysis of parametric design models: Improving agility in design
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 815- 829
summary The advances of generative and parametric CAD tools have enabled designers to create designs representations that are responsive, adoptable and flexible. However, the complexity of the models and limitation of human-visual systems posed challenges in effectively utilizing them for sensitivity analysis. In this prototyping study, we propose a method that aims at reduction of these challenges. The method proposes to improve visually analysing sensitivity of a design model to changes. It adapts Model-View-Controller approach in software design to decouple control and visualization features from the design model while providing interfaces between them through parametric associations. The case studies is presented to demonstrate applicability and limitation of the method.

summary This paper describes and reflects upon the results of an investigative project which explores the setting up of a material system – a parametric and generative assembly consisting of and taking into consideration material properties, manufacturing constraints and geometric behavior. The project approaches the subject through the construction of a logic-driven system aiming to explore the possibilities of a material system that fulfills spatial, structural and performative requirements concurrently and how these are negotiated in situations where they might be conflicting.

source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary The paper presents research and a case study investigating a series of events developed around Peer2Peer relational systems. The events emerged as a response to the identified needs forwarded by a post-graduate research group and evolved into information networks that serve an expanded, transdisciplinary community. The paper begins by reviewing a discussion model which integrated Peer2Peer relational principals within the event framework as a means of expanding transdisciplinary research and practice through peer networks, and concludes by considering the opportunities Peer2Peer relational systems offer to progress future university networks.

summary Tacit knowledge is paradoxical: something we know yet don't know we know, knowledge we sense but can't articulate. In Polanyi’s definition of tacit knowledge, “we know more than we can say" (1966/2009; Scott, 1985; Gelwick, 1977). It's important to see that tacit knowledge is part of a sequence; mental structures, in awareness when first learned, eventually become tacit, operating thenceforth as unquestioned assumptions. These tacit structures pose a problem for professional education in disciplines that encourage creativity. This paper examines the design and re-design of an interdisciplinary course intended to help make these tacit structures visible, to trigger frame awareness.

summary Innovation in digital manufacturing should not be impetuously assimilated, in particular in developing countries. They should not be rejected either, regarding them as unattainable. Industrial design knowledge establishes criteria to select and take advantage of the differential resources that these technologies provide to the project activity. Beyond the arguments that support and oppose digital manufacturing systems, the appropriation process progresses without definite information of the ways in which they are used by design studios and industries. Within the framework of a research project we developed a survey in order to obtain an outlook of the incorporation of these technologies in our country.

title An urban grammar for Portuguese colonial new towns in the 18th century
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This study describes the morphological urban order underlying Portuguese treatises and Portuguese urban cartographic representation produced from 16th century to 18th century. The historical documentation suggests that Pythagorean-Euclidian geometry appears to be a crucial ingredient for the understanding of Portuguese urban design-thinking and urban design-making. To unveil the genesis of the morphological urban order present in the Portuguese colonial plans of the eighteenth century, a descriptive method, Shape Grammar has been adopted. Shape Grammar, as method, supports the analysis of the form-making logic and has proved to be powerful in shape analysis, description, interpretation, classification, evaluation and generation of a design language.

summary Logic and evolution in ontogenetic processes for Architectural design was the title for a summer program taught at the Escuela de Arquitectura of the Universidad Anahuac from June to July 2008 in the State of Mexico, Mexico. Every single result in architectural design follows logical steps enclosed in the design processes. These logical processes evolve through space-time sequences in order to generate a diversity of possible solutions. In Biology an ontogenetic process refers to the development of an individual organism, anatomical or behavioral feature from the earliest stage to maturity. Following this development criteria students were encouraged to understand the main logics of natural and physical systems through the aid of computer programming. These logics must be understood as tridimensional geometries digitally generated. Right from the beginning all processes generated during the explorations and investigations had to be visualized as integral design performances. The integral design system must embedded structure, function, form and material capacities through the aid of computer programming, digital fabrication technologies and material assembling techniques. It is important to note that final prototypes had to demonstrate the diversity of capacities of the whole system in order to automate the components in evolution.

title Building Information Modeling and Interoperability
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary Interoperability is the ability of two or more systems to exchange information. It is one of the pillars of BIM because the information contained in a BIM model needs to be exchanged to be useful. IFC is cited as the best option for achieving interoperability in Construction but, although several applications have been certified to be IFC-compliant, flawed exchanges are too common yet. Behind IFC, some other less known standards play an important role to make BIM interoperability a reality. Among them are IDM, MVD and IFD. This paper will briefly show how these standards take part in data exchange and discuss the reasons why AEC interoperability is still such an elusive goal.

title A Syncretization Of Architecture, Engineering And Science:The use of CAD technology as a pedagogical tool in the teaching of environmentally sustainable design
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009 CD-Rom
summary Energy consumption in buildings is responsible for about 40% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. It is quite feasible that the energy consumption in buildings can be halved, but energy performance analysis must be integral to the entire design process. This imperative has led the authors to propose that architecture, engineering and science should be syncretized in the design process. This syncretization shares some features of the rhizomatic approach introduced by Deleuze and Guattari (2007). In rhizomatic systems all points can be, and should be connected. A rhizome can be considered as a space that develops, not from a point but from milieux. In the expansion of a rhizome, elements of the system do not follow tracings of other elements but they form a map of new vistas. Likewise, a syncretic approach is oblivious to the traditional boundaries between architecture, engineering and science. Syncretization has the potential to enrich the intellectual lives of architects, scientists and engineers, and it would have profoundly beneficial performative benefits.

title Unified Energy-Based Qualitative Representation for Building Analysis
source in J McDonnell and P Lloyd (eds), About: Designing. Analysing Design Meetings, CRC Press, pp. 213-229.
summary Currently, when designers develop a building design project, different representations are used for different building subsystems, such as spatial system, electrical system, lighting system, hydraulic system and HVAC. These representations are mainly used in the final design documentation stage. This book presents a qualitative approach to the development of a unified energy-based representation for building analysis called qualitative Archi Bond Graphs (QABGs). QABGs integrate different representations in the architectural domain into a unified representation. They can be applied in the conceptual, intermediate, and final building design stages. Combining graphical representations and qualitative equations, QABGs are applicable for building simulation and analysis for building dynamics in the space-people system and the building energy systems, and for energy interactions between the space-people system and the building energy systems.

summary In order to address the demands of an ever-increasingly data-driven architectural practice, the designer must become an interdisciplinary specialist. Therefore, it is necessary to rethink new strategies in order to establish a robust connective tissue between disciplines and specializations. Bringing new digital productions to the scale of a real building implies the need for radical innovation in non-standardized building solutions. This paradigm shift implies rethinking buildings as systems rather than the juxtaposition of optimized and monofunctional layers. This paper is rooted in a personal research agenda based in Systems Thinking, currently under development at Hyperbody, the research group
