title Uma Investigação da Ideia de uma Nova Espacialidade através da Representação Arquitetônica Contemporânea: Impactos Tecnológicos [A research of the idea of new spatiality through contemporary architectural drawing: technological impacts]
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary The idea of spatiality is changing with the explosion of concrete boundaries in this age; this new idea is between the limited space and the continuum space. This paper shows a critical reading of three architectural drawings – ‘Micromegas’ (Daniel Libeskind), ‘The Block’ (Bernard Tschumi) and ‘The World’ (Zaha Hadid); the objective is discussing an idea of space impressed in these drawings, and the relationships with digital realm too. The base of this discussion is in Vidler´s Warped Space and Virilio´s Lost Dimension, searching to understand characteristics and influences that help the construction of this idea of space.

title Using multi-level virtual environments as a medium for conducting design review through a shared IFC dataset
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 585- 597
summary For a long time the Architecture-Engineering-Construction (AEC) community has had difficulty in communicating the content of their work, not only the various specialties involved, but also to their clients. Studies (Doorst and Cross 2001; Bakhtin 1994) suggest the importance of multi-role collaborative environments in supporting design processes. We are developing a Multi Level Design Review Tool for the AEC industry which allows multiple actors to congregate and interact as agents around a central Building Model. It merges real-time virtual 3D visualization technologies with Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) to support both high levels of semantic content and seamless interoperability.

title Using Virtual Worlds as Collaborative Environments for Innovation and Design: Lessons Learned and Observations from Case Studies in Architectural Projects
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. 523-532
summary In this paper we discuss observations and lessons learned in conducting architectural design projects in virtual worlds. By integrating a community of users in virtual worlds into a collaborative architectural design process, organisations can tap the community’s creativity and intelligence through immersive technology. The paper provides an overview of the latest advances of information and communication technologies in immersive virtual environments and discusses some of the observations and lessons learned which should be taken into account in developing collaboration models for such activities. Here we propose four modes of collaboration, based on the choices for degree of openness and governance structure, which are illustrated by four case studies.

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.

title Urban Spaces by the Space Syntax Method: A Proposal for the South Haliç Region
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. 827-834
summary For a designer-architect to be able to make accurate predictions for any particular urban space, he/she needs to know the development stages of the city, as well as the city’s various features across time. Thus, it is necessary to read the different segments that constitute the city to reveal its historical, cultural, social, physical and symbolic features. The aim of this study is to determine the social and physical problems of a historical urban space and subsequently to introduce physical and functional suggestions to improve the identified problems, and for the development of the area. The South Haliç Area was chosen as a work-space because of its special importance in protecting the historical and cultural heritage found there and transferring it to future generations. With this in mind, in addition to literature studies, on-site observations and interviews, the area has been analyzed and evaluated using the space syntax method. The suggestions developed for the identified problems and solutions have been re-analyzed, and both the present data and the data obtained after the suggestions have been examined and the results have been presented.

summary The latest biological and digital technologies offer new possibilities and benefits for the production of new architecture: There is vast potential in the natural world if we work with DNA as though it were natural software, and in the digital realm if we work with software as though it were digital DNA. Pioneers in these fields converge in the Biodigital Architecture Master’s Degree, with the Genetic Architectures Research Group and Ph.D. Programme, at the ESARQ (Universitat Internacional de Catalunya), in Barcelona. The purpose of this paper is to put forward the theoretical basis and some of the research carried out to date.

summary The creative processes by which designers go through are frequently associated with the notion of intuition. This paper is part of an initial discussion that relies on some concepts brought by Bergson to discuss theoretically about specific tools or design instruments. Three of these instruments that use the image as a mean of representation and elaboration of ideas are discussed: the mood board, the blue sky research and the storyboard.

summary Circular causality, circular logic and subjectivity are rejected by many scientists while some designers regard them as keys to understanding the design process. With this paper I hope to stimulate a discussion about a largely unquestioned foundation of our field: the form of enquiry. Taking (as others before) this form to be circular, I examine the implications of and for research and education. Ideally, this discussion should inspire a new branch in our field: A philosophy of computeraided design research.

title Cylindrical Mesh Morphologies: Study of Computational Meshes based on Parameters of Force, Material, and Space for the Design of Tension-Active Structures
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. 39-46
summary In experimenting with digital processes for simulating the behavior of tension-active cable nets, a method was developed for creating informed geometries by utilizing computational meshes that carry properties of structure, space, and material. A spring-based particle system provided the dynamics to simulate the flow of tension force through the geometry. Particular functions were scripted to embed logics for fabrication and analysis of spatial parameters. This formulated a lightweight, reactive design tool for which multiple cable net morphologies could be quickly generated. This paper will describe the experiments in creating the method to generate such cable net morphologies, and discuss the potential application for this computational framework to apply to other architectural systems.

title Digital Templates: Diagrams of Associations

summary This paper claims that a speculative design space exists within the crafting of digital rule-based associations in parametric modeling environments, which promises to support potent contemporary designs in architecture. In addition to reviewing some diagrammatic frameworks located within the techniques of associative design modeling, this paper also details a project for a research-oriented practice based on the development of a registry of digital diagrams called “re-usables.” Working with “re-usable templates” of association, a precise sequence of design logic is invented for each project, while some of its aspects are re-used and re-configured. Such practice aims to operate between the “one-off” world of the all-custom and the entirely reproducible world of “copy-paste.”

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 investigates the relation between parametric modeling (PM) and digital fabrication (DF) of complex shapes in architecture. The complexity involving the recent designs in architecture has demanded new procedures, as much during the conception as to make possible its construction. Thus, the PM and the DF have allowed architects and engineers conceiving, detailing and constructing complex structures with more precision and faster. In this paper, the author contributes for a discussion in this field, still incipient in Brazil, particularly in the process of PM teach-learning.

title 3D Collaborative Environments in Archaeology: Experiencing the Reconstruction of the Past
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 7 - no. 1, 57-76
summary This paper presents the outcome of the research project: "Integrated Technologies of Robotics and Virtual Environments in Archaeology", financed by the Italian Ministry of the University and Scientific Research, FIRB (Funds for the Investments of Basic Research). The aim of the project is to experiment and realize a multi-user domain on the web aimed to a multidisciplinary scientific community: archaeologists, historians, experts in human and social sciences, communication experts. The capacity to load, share and interact with data in the same spatial virtual environment can increase the level of learning and scientific communication. The project is the result of the collaboration between CNR-ITABC of Rome, the University of California, Merced, the Department of Archaeology of the University of Pisa and Scuola S. Anna of Pisa. It focuses on three archaeological sites: the Teban tomb 14 in the necropolis of Gurna, Fayum Medinet Madi, both in Egypt, and Khor Rori, in Oman. The collaborative environment is constructed through a virtual reality system. This allows to create a virtual space where it is possible to share 3D information on the project and to host additional behaviors of the scientific community.

summary The paper highlights a built example of a human-scale spatial environment composed of discrete collaborative modules. The primary goals were to develop and understand strategies that can be applied to interactive architecture. The design and construction were carried out in an academic context that was displayed to a public audience of approximately 200,000 people over the course of three days. In addressing the performance parameters of the prototype, the concept focused on several key strategies: 1) geometry 2) movement 3) connections 4) scale and 5) computational control, and human interaction. The final objective of the approach was to create an innovative design that was a minimally functional spatial environment with the capability for evolving additional multi-functionality. Heavy emphasis was placed on creating a full-scale environment that a person could walk through, interact with, and experience spatially.

title Redesigning The Brick
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 381-390
summary This research examines the value of “redesigning the brick,” in creating a new vocabulary of basic architectural building blocks with autonomous reconfigurable robotics. The paper highlights several built examples by the author of robotic architectural environments and the work of architecture students whereby individual modules were created within the context of a design studio and applied to scenarios of space making at various scales. Several strategies for decentralized control were explored dictating how individual parts of a system should behave and how local interactions between individual modules can lead to the emergence of global behaviour. The students schematically designed selfreplicating models which would allow for each object to be able to attach, detach, and reconfigure according to predetermined computational logic. The projects successfully demonstrate various strategies for mechanical design, locomotion and control.

summary This article presents the current state of an ongoing research project developed at the ARIAM-LAREA laboratory of the school of Paris La Villette. The aim of this research is to offer architects digital tools that allow them to explore the project with freehand sketches as they do with pencil and paper. The role of these tools is to interpret the freehand sketches in order to work on them and transform them. They produce from these freehand sketches a digital model from which it will be possible to build a 3D representation, or to evaluate the project from any technical point of view. This paper only shows the part of the system that recognizes particular strokes in an architectural drawing.

title Kinetic Tensegrity Grids with 3D Compressed Components

summary This paper details a series of preliminary explorations into the concept of kinetic tensegrity grids that can respond to stimuli by changing their shape, porosity, and transparency. The research presented explores double-layer tensegrity grids that utilize 3D “compressed” components. A case study demonstrates their applicability to the formation of sophisticated building envelopes that can actively or passively respond to changes in the environment. A computational form-finding tool is introduced to study design variations in real time. This tool is shown to expand the design spectrum by supporting increased complexity and revealing unexpected design potential. This research is significant as it outlines a practical methodology for conceiving responsive building systems. In particular, it illustrates an approach that synthesizes design concerns with engineering and fabrication goals.

title Beyond Representation: Real Time Form Finding of Tensegrity Structures with 3d ‘Compressed’ Components
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. 21-30
summary Tensegrity structures are of interest to architecture and engineering as a practical means to explore lightweight and rapidly deployable modular structures that have a high degree of geometric freedom and formal potency. The notion of tensegrity structures with 3D ‘compressed’ components is introduced and their feasibility is demonstrated through selected physical models. Attempts to further explore the architectural potential of tensegrity structures within a computational environment have proven difficult, as they are statically indeterminate and require form finding procedures to “find a geometry compatible with a self-stress state” (Motro 2002). An overview of tensegrity ‘capable’ software that can be used for architectural design is followed by a discussion that introduces an additional computational method based on particle-spring systems. This approach enables real time manipulation of tensegrity networks. Two projects that utilize this unique tool are described.

summary This research describes a tool which can be used outdoors instead of a paper medium by a group of people to facilitate city tour guiding or design studies. First, the problems of the device and software which constitute the developed outdoor type MR (Mixed Reality) system were considered. Problems regarding the display, sensor, and composition with video and 3DCG images were clarified. In addition, taking account of the problem that the display is dark outdoors, the luminosity of a number of displays was measured in a dark room and outdoors. In addition to the dark room contrast ratio, the importance of ambient contrast was highlighted through the experiment.

summary The research focuses on the performative capacities of a pneumatic material system in regards to the specific environmental conditions. The use of Adaptation as a mechanism to modulate environmental performance was the main focus of the design process and research. The location of the sun during the day acts as a trigger to adapt the system, allowing the system to passively augment the environmental conditions. A new form-finding method that combines digital and material processes has been the main method by which the experiments were undertaken. This approach necessitates a dramatic shift in the architectural design, from producing static to environmentally responsive objects. It requires a shift in thinking from buildings as static and non-active systems to material system existing over time within specific environments capable of complex environmental performances.
