title Programming framework for architectural design ANAR+: Object oriented geometry
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 771- 785
summary From the recent advent of scripting tools integrated into commercial CAAD software and everyday design practice, the use of programming applied to an architectural design process becomes a necessary field of study. The presented research explores the use of programming as explorative and reflexive medium (Schön, 1983) through the development of a programming framework for architectural design. Based on Java, the ANAR+ library is a parametric geometry environment meant to be used as programming interface by designers. Form exploration strategies based on parametric variations depend on the internal logic description, a key role for form generation. In most commercial CAD software, geometric data structures are often predefined objects, thus constraining the form exploration, whereas digital architectural research and teaching are in need for an encompassing tool able to step beyond new software products limitations.

title Architects of information: Designing Architectural metaphors
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary Recently, the handling of information design by architects was motivated by the progress and exploration of digital technologies. They began to experiment with the use of informational metaphors and their application in virtual environments. This paper presents these new experimentations in 3D information visualization designed by architects interested in experimentation with digital media as information environments in design. The examples presented in this paper attempt to demonstrate the design of information and aim to illustrate approaches to the representation of the structure and relationships within abstract datasets. The architectural exploitation of metaphors may constitute unique formulations of knowledge structures capable of communicating information in unique ways.

title Kirimurê: uma aplicação da Modelagem Geométrica na produção da Forma Arquitetônica [Kirimurê: an application of geometric modeling on the synthesis 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 Kirimurê is as Brazilian Indian Tupinambás called the Baia de Todos os Santos. Around the bay developed a region with significant agricultural production, at a time Salvador was the main export port in the Southern Hemisphere. This economic strength and its export potential were greatly due to the saveiro, a small wooden vessel with sail propulsion, which dominated these waters for a long time. Testimony of the Bahia’s history, they had great influence in the culture of Bahia. Currently, these vessels are disappearing and with them the traditional techniques of shipbuilding, intangible heritage, held in memory of the master builders. This paper presents an experience in developing the architectural shape of a complex building using geometric modeling, to house this cultural heritage.

title Visualizing Bits as Urban Semiotics
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 33-42
summary Geosemiotics, defined as the study of meaning of placing signs in the material world, concerns the interaction of spatial, individual, social, and cultural contexts. Mobile technology, enabling spatial awareness successfully, has turned our living space into coordinates to broaden geosemiotics study. With interdisciplinary perspectives, there is an emerging potential to integrate the study of mobile spatial interaction and geosemiotics and we address several open issues of geospatial applications in this paper. Since indexicality is the focus of geosemiotics study, we focus on digital indexicalities referring to physical space. Physical indexical signs are usually set by government or organizations rather than individuals, and therefore we propose a new concept to place personal indexical signs in the physical space with mobile devices and augmented reality technology. Overlapped onto the physical world via visual, iconic, and metaphorical methods, what these unique personal semiotics bring is a living space with novel urban landscape and geosemiotics.

title Study on Zoning of Urban Morphology based on GIS
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 317-326
summary The traditional studies of urban morphology mainly focus on material aspects such as urban construction, urban environment. The writers of the paper, however, point out that the nature behind material aspects should be load capacity of urban land-use, which can be reflected through some economic and technological indexes, such as floor area ratio(FAR), building density and building height, and generally they are relative. The paper forms a new morphology zoning method after having studied the relation of the above indexes based on the digital methods of GIS. This rout of thought may have some reference value for controlling the expanse of urban land-use, optimizing the allocation of resources and urban morphology and supervising the implementation of urban planning. In the paper, the author proposed the concept of “zhubei” to describe and evaluate urban morphology. We can further analyze “zhubei” regards urban planning analysis and management, for example, the slope analysis, aspect analysis, view analysis, area and volume analysis etc. Therefore, we can describe current urban morphology and evaluate its rationality by relevant conclusions just like describing vegetation.

title The Design of a Mobile Navigation System Based on QR Codes for Historic Buildings
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 103-112
summary Due to the rapid development of mobile and compact electronic devices such as PDAs and smart phones, designers and developers now have to consider user mobility and the dynamic context of use in the design of interactive systems. In this study, literatures associated with mobile navigation systems in museums and historic buildings are first reviewed in order to understand the features, advantages, and drawbacks of current mobile navigation technology. The feasibility of applying QR codes in the navigation of historic buildings is then discussed, and the mobile navigation principles mentioned in previous literatures are applied in our proposed system. A number of common problems are encountered in the navigation of local historic buildings or museums. Visitors (1) cannot understand what makes an exhibited item a work of art; (2) do not know where to start or how to get started; (3) feel rushed by guides during the guided tour; and (4) find that the audio guide is not clear enough. Managers of historic buildings or museums are generally concerned about (1) the high cost of constructing a mobile navigation environment; (2) possible damage to devices; and (3) the cost of device maintenance. This study attempts to solve the above issues by constructing an affordable digital navigation environment that enables users to clearly understand each exhibited item and its location.

summary This research explores new ways to integrate manufacturing knowledge in to design phases. Through the use of design for manufacturing (DfM) concept, and looking at relations between its potential application in component design and its implementation using digital manufacturing technologies, the author implemented a DfM model that varies from previous models by incorporated learning in the process. This process was based on; a knowledge systematization process; and the incremental development and refinement of design heuristics and metrics. Subsequently the attempt on this research is twofold. One is to realize a process to capture and organize manufacturing knowledge, and second to organize that knowledge and make it available as a DfM model for component design using specific CNC technology.

title Programmatic Formation: Practical Applications of Parametric Design
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 7 - no. 4, 587-604
summary Programmatic Formation explores design as a responsive process. The study we present engages the complexity of the surroundings using parametric and generative design methods. It illustrates that responsiveness of designs can be achieved beyond geometric explorations. The parametric models can combine and respond simultaneously to design and its programmatic factors, such as performance-sensitive design-decisions, and constraints. We demonstrate this through a series of case studies for a housing tower. The studies explore the extent to which non-spatial parameters can be incorporated into spatial parametric dependencies in design. The results apply digital design and modeling, common to the curriculum of architecture schools, to the practical realm of building design and city planning. While practitioners are often slow to include contemporary design and planning methods into their daily work, the research illustrates how the incorporation of skills and knowledge acquired as part of university education can be effectively incorporated into everyday design and planning.

title I think Therefore i-Phone: The influence of Pervasive Media on Collaboration and Multi-Disciplinary Group Work
source Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures 2011 [Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures / ISBN 9782874561429] Liege (Belgium) 4-8 July 2011, pp. 69-84.
summary The study of value and its transfer during the multi-disciplinary process of design is stable fodder for research; an entire issue of Design Studies has been devoted to Values in the Design Process. By scrutinising design meetings Dantec (2009) and Ball (2009) separately examine the mechanisms of value transfer between the agents involved in design (clients, designers, engineers). Dantec suggests this is best understood in terms of requirement, values and narrative; Ball proposes it should be viewed as a combination of "analogical reasoning" and "environmental simulation". If we look at Vitruvius and his primary architectural manual (Pollio 1960) we find values‚Äîin the form of firmitas, utilitas and venustas‚Äîembedded in this early codification of architectural practice. However, as much current research is restricted to design practice what occurs when value frameworks move between domains of cultural activity (such as design to construction and vice-versa) is not privileged with a comparably sizable body of research. This paper is concerned with the ongoing usage of pervasive media and cellular phones within communications and value transfer across the disciplinary threshold of design and construction. Through participation in a building project we analyse the subtleties of interaction between analogue communication such as sketches and digitally sponsored communication such as e-mail and mobile phone usage. Analysing the communications between the designer and builder during construction suggests it is also a creative process and the distinctions between design and construction processes are complex and often blurred. This work provides an observational basis for understanding mobile computing as a dynamic ‚Äòtuning‚Äô device‚Äîas hypothesized by Richard Coyne (2010)‚Äîthat ameliorates the brittleness of communication between different disciplines. A follow up study deploys ‚Äòdigital fieldnotes‚Äô (dfn) a bespoke iPhone application designed to test further suppositions regarding the influence exerted upon group working by mobile computing. Within collaboration individual communiqu_©s have different levels of importance depending on the specific topic of discussion and the contributing participant. This project furthers the earlier study; expanding upon what mobile computing is and enabling us to infer how these emergent devices affect collaboration. Findings from these two investigations suggest that the synchronous and asynchronous clamour of analogue and digital tools that surround design and construction are not exclusively inefficiencies or disruptions to be expunged. Observational evidence suggests they may provide contingency and continue to have value attending to the relationship between static components‚Äîand the avoidance of failure‚Äîwithin a complex system such as design and construction.

summary This report examines the application of physical models and digital ones as tools in the design of reinforced concrete shells. The development of computational processes and consequently the process of analyzing the structure as the finite element method allows more complex forms to be applied in architectural projects. The research demonstrates the potential of this tool, through the analysis of contemporary projects such as the “Memorial da America Latina” of Oscar Niemeyer, with modeling of the structure in ANSYS.

title Integral Computational Design for Composite Spacer Fabric Structures: Integral Processes of Form Generation and Fabrication for Sandwich Structured Composites with 3D Warp-Knitted Textile Core
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. 289-298
summary Spacer fabrics are three dimensionally warp-knitted textiles that can be draped over complex double curved surfaces with no need for cut patterns or additional seams. This paper explains the development of an integral computational approach to the design and fabrication of sandwich composite structures with a spacer fabric core. Contrary to the common hierarchy of architectural design processes that prioritizes the definition of form over the inherent characteristics of materialization, this approach aims at an integral computational design process capable of unfolding a design from the constraints of making. The way the material capacity of spacer fabrics combined with the constraints of sandwich composite manufacturing directly informs the computational design process will be explained along the development of two prototype structures.

summary For considerable time research has been conducted into architectural design activities and the digital tools that support these design activities. Previous research endeavors have focused on specific aspects of digital tools and design processes and have yielded correspondingly focused insights. This effort attempts to build a framework that allows assembling insights from research across the domain of digitally supported facilities design in order to develop a cohesive set of design tool specifications. This design tool specification framework in combination with a review of existing research will allow identification of areas for future investigation to rethink concept tool design.

source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 235-243
summary The principal objective of building management is to control facilities planning and facilities operations and maintenance, that effective criteria in strategic planning about preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance. The key of success in managing the building and facilities is all about collecting and interpreting data on diverse facets of property use. Computer databases are the ideal vehicles in which to log, store and manipulate data; almost unlimited information can be measured and entered en masse. The strength of such information storage is its capacity for expansion and the diversity of subject; it becomes large and requires greater and greater operator familiarity with its structure in order to interrogate successfully. The ultimate solution is to computer–base the entire operation, by using the three-dimensional building modelling to control the operation. This solution will simulate building in virtual environment and the building system data (Architectural part and Engineering part) will collect in digital data type. The digital data will classification and made three-dimensional database relations. This research focus in three sections of the operation as three-dimensional database relationship, topological simulation and smart system, that applied to generate the prototype building management application “Architecture Building Facilities Management: ABFM”.

summary In the research project presented in this paper we investigate the architectonic and constructive potential of additive digital fabrication in timber construction through robotic processes as well as the relation of functional requirements of an exterior wooden wall to design. Form finding through performance analysis is of great interest for architects. With advanced digital fabrication technologies at hand it is possible to produce articulate building elements. This can be exploited to analyze and transform performance criteria into architectural expression. We argue that functional requirements and formal characteristics are interdependent. To allow performance criteria drive the generative parameters of design, custom software tools need to be developed which impart physical aspects of building elements to digital design models.

summary This study aims to contribute to the architectural history, theory and design research. As being part of the modern tradition, it is an enquiry into the epistemological consequences of program-based architectural design whose progenitors lie at the very idea of the modern movement. It aims to develop arguments at the continuation of the discussion of the program emerged in the 1960s. In the study, the main problem in the contemporary design and especially in the digital design that are caused by the disengagement from a convincing epistemological clarity is addressed via a review on program, and an additional introductory survey.

summary This essay codifies and extends contemporary conceptions of systemic organization using architectural case studies within the context of 1950’s space-time. Given the dominance of certain concerns within the profession of architecture during that time—prefabrication and strict modularity—the selected case studies reveal unprecedented characteristics which anticipate current developments in algorithmic and parametric formation. The projects in question demonstrate sophisticated strategies for differentiated part-to-whole relationships which predate contemporary organizational systems, now derived with the aid of digital computation. Their importance to current architectural discourse lies in distinguishing the manner in which they manifest notions of space-time, including transformation, continuity and modulation, as architects increasingly operate within dexterous and interconnected environments.

summary In this paper we present a new parametric approach based on environmental constraints, in order to generate digital models of architectural shape, directly within a three dimensional geo-referenced environment. Those constraints may be regarded as force fields with a specific spatial dimension. The system allows user, through implementation of specific generative procedures, to manage interactive architectural design processes. The designer is able to explore all possible infinite scenarios and the various possible design alternatives, by changing the parameters values and verifying in real time the results of the changes. Two experiments are presented.
