title A Virtual Design Platform: Bridging Barriers When Designing with Computers
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 205-212
summary The paper summarizes the results of a diploma thesis. Taking the potential of computers to be an ultimate design-medium as its premise, the thesis examines how to enhance the way we use digital design tools. It identifies central characteristics of the design process that need to be considered in a digital design environment. Based on a conception of design as a cyclic process involving appropriate design tools, the paper singles out usability, in the sense of ease of use of such tools, as a key criteria for overcoming problems associated with designing on and with the computer. Drawing on these considerations a prototype has been developed which attempts to bridge barriers between the use of different design tools using an existing software framework.

title Ubicomp-Kaizen
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 215-224
summary This paper describes the successful development of a design supporting method called ‘Ubicomp-Kaizen’ for the design of computerintegrated ‘smart’ buildings. The tool uses known methods of qualitymanagement of the car-manufacturing industry and integrates them into the architectural design process. By this, the CAAD-topics ‘design methodology’, ‘ubicomp/smart buildings’, ‘interactive architecture’ and ‘Building Information Model (BIM)’ are involved. In result it proves the successful integration and application of tools known from the product development industry such as ‘Quality-Function-Deployment (QFD)’ and ‘Failure Mode and Effects Analyze (FMEA)’ within the iterative building design. The outlook formulates a side-result which is the setup of a digital decision supporting tool and the extension of the IFC-definitions in order to integrate aspects of user-interaction and ubicomp."

title Architectural morphogenesis - Towards a new description of architectural form
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary Introduction of computational techniques and numeric potentials to the process of architectural design has significantly challenged the process of form generation. Architectural morphogenesis denotes the generation of architectural form via its geometric adaptation to materiality and constructability. This work is presented as a part of a research activity which investigates integration of construction information as well as material properties to geometric description of the architectural form. Different aspects of architectural form are explored through analysis of certain examples. Basic issues of the research were examined through a one week workshop experiment with architecture students

title Gaussian Vault Geometry: Digital Design and Fabrication of Scaled Prototypes
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp.267-276
summary This paper reports on three approaches to the translation of Gaussian surface models into scaled physical prototype models. Using the geometry of Eladio Dieste’s Gaussian Vaults, the paper reports on the aspects encountered in the process of digital to physical prototype fabrication. The primary focus of the paper is on exploring the design geometry, investigating methods for preparing the geometry for fabrication and constructing physical prototypes. Three different approaches in the translation from digital to physical models are investigated: rapid prototyping, two dimensional surface models in paper and structural component models using Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) fabrication. The three approaches identify a body of knowledge in the design and prototyping of Gaussian vaults. Finally the paper discusses the digital to fabrication translation processes with regards to the characteristics, benefits and limitations of the three approaches of prototyping the ruled surface geometry of Gaussian Vaults.

title 3D Scans of As-Built Urban Scenes in A City Scale
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 297-306
summary The purpose of this research is to build digital urban landscape, based on as-built environmental information. Scans were made to an expressway and surrounding buildings through the center of a city. A 3D long-range laser scanner was used to record buildings, plants, and open spaces in a static configuration, plus the records of pedestrians, vehicles, objects in a dynamic form. As the scan tolerance can be controlled in less than 4 mm/50 m, the final urban information management system creates a precise description of objects with colors and textures feasible for internet browsing as well as for infrastructure dimensioning and construction monitoring.

title Rethinking Eiermann’s Horten Tile - A new structuralism?
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary The structural idea of a universal structure that is valuable for different situations gets new power through new design and manufacturing methods. Genetic evolutionary algorithms can find pheno-typical solutions based on capable geno-typical structures. These design systems need to transform abstract architectural requirements into geometric parameters. In a studio students were asked to apply this structural idea to the redesign of the Eiermann’s Horten façade.

title Digital Technologies, Methods, and Tools in Support of the Architectural Development at Herzog & de Meuron
source ACADIA 09: reForm( ) - Building a Better Tomorrow [Proceedings of the 29th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-9842705-0-7] Chicago (Illinois) 22-25 October, 2009), pp. 26-29
summary The architectural office of Herzog & de Meuron (HdM) started in 1978 and has grown to a company of about 330 employees. Besides the two founding partners who participate in every project there are nine additional partners who take responsibility for individual projects. Furthermore, the office collaborates with artists and outside experts of various fields to support and enhance the available knowledge and skills. The partners ensure that each project has a distinct and unique identity and is well adapted to its environment. This emphasis on the uniqueness of a project characterizes the design philosophy of HdM.The growth of the office and the size and complexity of the projects has demanded continuous adaptation of the office structure. The amount of required data is increasing exponentially, while the design cycles are, generally, becoming shorter. The challenge is to find the right tools and media. HdM does not restrict itself to the realm of digital tools but, rather, uses all possible media: hand sketches in pencil, together with diagrams, drawings, and images, as well as physical and digital models.

summary Aim of this paper is to discuss the paradigmatic changes in the conception and production of ”monumentality” through the transition from analog to digital forms of communication, design and production. Before looking for a correspondence to “monumentality” in the digital era, the basic concepts that define “monumentality” like aesthetics & public space will be theorized and discussed briefly. We will be questioning via examples, whether the classical conception and production of the “monument” still pursues in the digital era or if the digital revolution is able to alter the chemistry of it.

title Depth Perception in Real and Pictorial Spaces: A Computational Framework to Represent and Simulate Built Environments
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 543-552
summary Architectural design is often mediated on two-dimensional representation systems and envisioned three-dimensionally in the pictorial space. The developments of advanced digital technologies have enabled us to create the pictorial representations of un-built design projects that can appear as real as photographs. The visually appealing pictures produced by photorealistic rendering tools are useful for visualizing the form and the spatial layout of the proposed architectural design; but they may be inadequate and misleading for simulating the perceptual qualities of space. This paper draws from the recent developments in computer graphics (physically based renderings and perceptually based tone mapping techniques) and proposes a computational framework to faithfully represent and simulate pictorial spaces. Guidelines are provided for generating images with appropriate representation and simulation techniques so that architects can make informed design decisions about the perceptual qualities of their designs and researchers can study depth perception in computer environments.

title Digital wood craft
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 673- 686
summary In 1995, Robin Evans points out in his book The Projective Cast how the development of techniques changed architecture and the space inhabited in times of Gothic and early Renaissance. We see a parallel phenomenon today, where the interplay of technology and tool gives shape to new design (Kolarevic 2005). Yet in opposition to the interwoven fields of design and craft of the late Gothic, today’s building sector is enormously diversified, and a growing complexity in the building process and number of used materials can be observed. This gives an opposite point of departure into a more integrated field of design and innovation in architectural design and building industry.

title Is An On-Virtu Digital Sketching Encironment Cognitively Identical To In-Situ Free-Hand Sketching?
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 473-482
summary This study demonstrates that an on-virtu digital sketching environment is cognitively almost identical to in-situ free-hand sketching. The former can support the designers’ drawing activities with good resolution, and can provide remote communication in a face-to-face atmosphere. The study’s empirical examination of the environment rested on protocol analysis and coding schemes of the design-prototype and the reflection-in-action. The results indicate that the two environments are similar in terms of design-process speed, design process, and design content. The results provide implications for CAD and design practice.

title Cognitive Styles and Performance in Traditional Versus Digital Design Media

summary This paper investigates the interactions between cognitive styles as measured by Riding’s Cognitive Styles Analysis and performance in traditional versus digital design media. An empirical research revealed that design performance in both media correlated with being at the Imager side of the cognitive styles continuum. The Wholist-Analytic dimension was found to be independent from performance. The Bonferroni tests indicated that the digital drafting scores of the Imagers were significantly higher than that of the Verbalisers, but no other significant relation was observed. The findings suggest that drawing with computers entails specific cognitive actions that may favour visual type of individuals.

summary To apprehend and apply the design concepts is directly related to the content of the education, the participation of the students in the design process and the design media facilities. The computer as a different design media affects the design process and also the design product. Accordingly, as a considerable fact, some of the courses in the architectural education program are based on the digital medium. However, enhancing the integration between the design courses, implemented in the studios, as a main part of the architectural design education and the digital media courses is contemplated as an actual requirement. In this context, regarding to the complement enclosure of this research, considering the affection of the transformations of the design pragmatics to the design educations, the traditional and the digital design methodologies are comparative underscored, and also the contributions of the digital design methodology to the traditional way of artificial manufacturing are analyzed during the development process of the design. For this purpose, the design theories, the digital design methodologies and accordingly the investigation properties about the construction of the theoretical conceptualization of the digital methodology, the approaches about the education and the design methodologies are literally overviewed. This comparative analysis had constituted the main comprehension of this inquisition.

source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.295-303
summary The parametric design techniques are developed over the past 15 years. And a new style called parametricism is born, which is the style rooted in digital animation techniques. The parametricism is based on the advanced parametric design systems and scripting method (Schumacher, 2009). This study is the research of defining the city of Istanbul and the skyscraper together in the sense of the parametricism. The result is expected to be a self-sufficient urban living proposal by using generative and parametric tools and scripting techniques. The other purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the skyscraper and the natural world, and the urban living.
