title Conservación digital de las prácticas constructivas utilizando el sistema KOC. Estudio de caso: Edificio Mario Laserna [Digital preservation of building practices, using the KOC system. Case study: Mario Laserna building]
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 362-365
summary Around the middle of the 20th century, construction techniques in Colombia displayed important technical advances, but because there was a lack of documentation strategies most of this knowledge was lost. However, in 2008 the Mario Laserna building at Universidad de los Andes, Bogota, received the XVII International Cemex Building Award for its contribution to the development of construction technology using concrete. Considering the problem of recording the lessons learned from this experience, this paper demonstrates how to carry out the digital preservation of technical knowledge in the field of construction by means of the Knowledge Objects of Construction (KOC) system, specifically the construction process for a concrete beam.

summary The imminent disruption of the modern paradigms of serialization, repetition and standardization, poses us a myriad of new questions regarding both the emerging aesthetics and the upcoming production means for a new architecture. Despite the canonic approach in which architects tend to invest, the public and private demand for mass housing production is increasing at an astonishing rate, requiring architects to rethink traditional— modern—strategies and to gain control over contemporary—digital—tools. This paper describes an academic research project focused on the implementation of such tools. Some related work is presented, emphasizing some of the approaches in parametric plan layout generation. And a case study is formulated in which the mass design of serially customized layouts is prepared to be solved through a beta plugin for Rhino – Grasshopper.

summary This paper is an analysis of the insufficient nature of binary terms to define and discuss digital information flow and fabrication, and seeks to purport ways in which these binary definitions can be dispelled in favor of a push towards wholeness in both our understanding of the contemporary design climate as well as our own interaction with objects and material.

source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.197-205
summary Cities have always been locations of densified collections of various kinds of networks. While usually networks are conceived as a kind of immaterial logistic devices, we emphasize another quality of networks, their capabilities for associative learning. We propose autonomous associative networks in their probabilistic flavor, such as so-called Self-Organizing Maps, as abstract candidate structures for simulation experiments and as actualized structures of real cities as well. The properties of Self-Organizing Maps allow to introduce a whole new area of analytical procedures to conceive of the city and its properties. It also makes it possible to operationalize the attractivity of cities or the success of the implementation of urban planning.

title Memory Mesh: Conformationally Adaptive Solar Shading
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 412-414
summary Innovative technologies that enable more efficient use of energy in the built environment contribute to the effectiveness of green building design, and to sustainable building practices. Digital fabrication can be used to unlock the inherent physical properties of common materials as a means to create solar shades which change shape in response to ambient conditions and user needs in a system which relies on extremely simple mechanical actuation. These conformationally adaptive solar shades take advantage of materials which can be deformed not only to occlude or permit the passage of light, but also to produce optimal angles for the maximization the interception of solar radiation of the surface of the device itself.

title Simply complex: a case study of construction-driven design using computational methods
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 585-594
summary This paper explores how fabrication-based criteria can be integrated into design processes through computational methods. Based on the ongoing project of the Library of the Bao’an Cultural Complex in Shenzhen, China (referred as ‘the Library’ in this paper hereafter), this paper discusses the process of the rationalisation of an intuitive architectural form and its subsequent tiling design based on the adaptation to the conventional fabrication techniques of the building façade industry in China. These objectives are followed by the establishment of robust computational systems of automation that provide a concrete basis for the visualisation, the development of envelope details, and the generation of the list of component data for fabrication. This integrative approach is markedly different from a more conventional one, in which computational systems serve as a priori solutions to unconstraint design sketches.

title Function & Action: Verifying a functional program in a game-oriented environment
source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.389-394
summary The finding of a functional program for any kind of building involves a great amount of knowledge about the behavior of future building users. This knowledge can be gathered by looking at relevant building literature (Adler, 1999; Neufert and Neufert, 2000) or by investigating the actual processes taking place in similar environments, the latter being demonstrated e.g. by (Schütte-Lihotzky, 2004) or new functionalist approaches of the MVRDV group (Costanzo, 2006)). Both techniques have the disadvantage that the architect might assume a behavior which is seldom experienced in real life (either through lack of information or by failing to meet the building user’s expectations). What is needed is a verification step in which the design is tested on real users. We have devised a game-like environment (Figure 1a) in which it is possible to capture the behavior of future building users in order to verify the relevance of the design even at a very early stage. As result of applying our approach, we can find previously overlooked usage situations, which may be used to further adapt the design to the user’s needs.

summary The concepts of “life” and “information” become all the more deeply connected as life becomes inextricably affected by both data and technologies. Architecture is intimately related to this new reality, and it contributes to the discourse of the interdependency of life and information and how it impacts our very structures of perception.

title Digital architecture for humanitarian design: a case study of applying digital technologies in post-disaster reconstruction
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 413-422
summary This paper describes the context and proposal for applying digital technology in humanitarian design for remote areas of developing countries that are the most technologically challenged. It presents a case study of on-going post-disaster reconstruction in the Solomon Islands. A system of digital tools, in particular parametric modelling, was devised to optimise the exemplar design for site and project specific needs, and reduce time and cost required in the overall design and construction process. Shelters developed under this system will start construction in 2010.

title Development and Social Experiment for a Tourism Information Collection System by Tourists
source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.565-573
summary It can be said that improving tourism facilities will be indispensable for the economy of our country in the future. To improve tourism facilities, tourism information evaluated by tourists should be collected and transformed into useful knowledge, and then this knowledge should be used for the planning and the improvement of tour routes and the infrastructure of sightseeing areas. Therefore, this research describes a tourism information collection system. The collection system was used to identify tourists’ needs accurately, effectively and widely by using a CPCG (Cell-Phone with Camera and GPS) and by developing a SIMS (Sightseeing Information Management Server). To verify the proposed methods, the author carried out a social experiment. The experiment showed that the proposed methods were effective.

title Kids and new media: how young people act within virtual architecture
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 433-442
summary Today’s children are familiar with many fields of new media. They can’t even resist. Even more they have a more natural approach to new technologies than many of the grown-ups. In several workshops we tried to test how these young students would interact within a virtual environment configured for architectural needs. Providing a special setup equipped with a tracking system and sensors we investigated the children’s behaviour and the robustness of our system with regard to the education of elder students and further research.
