title Prototypical architecture: Design research method with full-scale models
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 689–698
summary This paper will discuss the role of the prototype in the design process, in the context of adaptive principles and iterative procedures. The starting point of this study will be the analysis of several recent projects from THEVERYMANY™ and their concept of “prototypical architecture”. This paper aims to give an insight into both a different conception of architecture and the specific ways of research-oriented work which have redefined the role of the prototype in the design process. In the analysis presented here, the role of computer-aided architectural design is seen as fundamental in the development and further improvement of the iterative design process through faster and more affordable construction of prototypes.

title On Shape Grammars, Color Grammars and Sortal Grammars: A sortal grammar interpreter for varying shape grammar formalisms
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-2-0, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp .479-487
summary Grammar formalisms for design come in a large variety, requiring different representations of the entities being generated, and different interpretative mechanisms for this generation. Most examples of shape grammars rely on labeled shapes, a combination of line segments and labeled points. Color grammars extend the shape grammar formalism to allow for a variety of qualitative aspects of design, such as color, to be integrated in the rules of a shape grammar. Sortal grammars consider a compositional approach to the representational structures underlying (augmented) shape grammars, allowing for a variety of grammar formalism to be defi ned and explored. In this paper, we revisit and explore an exemplar shape grammar from literature to illustrate the use of different grammar formalisms and consider the implementation of rule application within a sortal grammar interpreter.

title Open Systems
source Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2012, 977 p.
summary Contemporary challenges require inclusively integrated approaches to designing. Constrained by established modes of practice, such integration is impossible without a radical commitment to openness. In response to this need, the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) brought together contributions that engage with open systems in all aspects of architectural and urban design: open with respect to the scale of the design objectives and the context, from a building component within a building system to a neighbourhood or city within its urban and rural context; open with respect to the domains being considered, from planning to sustainable performance of a building or city; open with respect to the collaboration of disciplines and participants, from ad-hoc brainstorming to a rigorous process of consultation and feedback; open with respect to design methods and techniques, from physical modelling to digital prototyping; open with respect to design models and representations being adopted, from a parametric exploration to an ontological delineation considering Building Information Modelling, Built Environment Modelling or City Information Modelling; open with respect to the tools and applications being adopted, despite interoperability issues, from modelling to simulation and assessment; open with respect to the learning approach being adopted, from informal interaction and sharing to formal design education; open with respect to the open source approach being adopted in research and development, in order to gather community involvement and use. The conference was held 15-18 May 2013 at the Department of Architecture, School of Design and Environment, at National University of Singapore.By focusing on the theme of Open Systems, CAADRIA 2013 aimed to explore all these aspects and more, and raise awareness to the need of breaching disciplinary boundaries and reaching creative communities at all levels of expertise, by pooling resources, knowledge and practices, and integrating them through the adoption of open systems.

title Congonhas Media Cascade - Ituita: A Permanent Urban Interactive Interface For Citizenship
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-3-7, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 293-300
summary This paper presents the process behind the design of an interactive Media Cascade in the historic city of Congonhas, Minas Gerais, Brazil. It first introduces the physical and social context of the rehabilitation of the city, in which the cascade, called Ituita, was proposed. Different to the ephemeral character of most urban interactive installations, Ituita intends to become a permanent reference for the citizens, being as much as a playful interface for interaction as a place for raising and putting in evidence issues related to the city. This paper, thus, presents the three different levels of interaction—reactive, pro-active and dialogical—proposed in the interface designed for Ituita. Then, it discusses the possible urban benefi t of such a proposal and concludes with assessments of both technological and social slant.

title Speculative Structures: Reanimating Latent Structural Intelligence in Agent-based Continuum Structures
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-2-0, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 365-373
summary The potential afforded by the open search spaces of both agent-based models and evolutionary engines have given architecture yet another set of computational tools to play with, yet more often than not and with some cause, they are used in isolation from one another. This research explores the set of techniques and results of having combined swarm formations, FEM software and an evolutionary engine within a parametric modeling environment such that they induce materially intelligent and structurally viable swarmed formations. A set of protocols are developed for grafting these formations into the already-built environment, treating it as a resource to be accessed and exploited toward the production of novel morphogenetic results and architectural possibilities.

source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 423-425
summary This paper intends to describe part of a project that aims at the valorisation of historical-architectural heritage of a university. Thus, this text describes issues related to visual and geometric modeling of digital models to be viewed in Augmented Reality. For this the study came from the analysis of the use of models previously developed for other applications. So, a methodology was developed for the optimization of the modeling process that was based on the technique of Retopology, which means the model is to rebuild polygon by polygon until it is complete, but with a minimum of quadrilateral faces.

title Topological Interlocking Assemblies

summary Topological interlocking is a concept developed in material science. Solid modules form a structural system without the use of glue or mortar. Given fixed boundaries the elements constrain each other kinematically. This project seeks to re-conceptualize the system within an architectural framework by embracing computational design, analysis and fabrication tools and procedures. The goal is to develop geometrical differentiated, reversible, force-locked systems and the processes and methods to design and manufacture them. Students of the Architecture and Performative Design Studio (APD) at the Staedelschule Architecture Class (SAC) and the author developed the presented projects. The paper discusses the pedagogical approach of starting a design research studio from a very narrow material system. The research is continued at the School of Architecture of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm.

title Design Ecologies for Responsive Environments: Resonant Chamber, an Acoustically Performative System"
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 373-382
summary This paper positions the development and performance of a responsive acoustic envelope system, called Resonant Chamber, within significant discourses in ecology, systems theory and cybernetics. The project is developed through two dominant threads. First, the synthetic design process that entails engaging simultaneous computational and physical investigations which inform each other through various feedback and control regimes - from simulation and testing frameworks to material limits and behaviors to geometric, technological and manufacturing limitations or constraints. Second, the paper elaborates on the system's embedded sensing, communication, feedback and actuation system that transforms its performance to a kinetic, responsive environment that opens up possibilities for active acoustic control, as well as open-ended interaction and play with inhabitants. Within this paradigm, the designer operates through an adaptive mode, between control and the dynamic shaping of possibilities within digital, physical and effective logics, constraints and opportunities.

title The Agency of Responsive Envelopes: Interaction, Politics and Interconnected Systems
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 10 - no. 3, 377-400
summary This article positions the territory of responsive envelopes within the context of contemporary disciplinary questions surrounding the politics of the architectural envelope on one hand, and the agency of material explication of environmental, social and spatial performance on the other. Two recent prototype-based responsive envelope projects undertaken by the authors, the Stratus Project and Resonant Chamber, are described in detail relative to the reciprocity between the development of their materiality, form, production methods and their dynamic interaction with external forces, environments and inhabitants. An argument is made that responsive envelopes, in their capacity to structure continually evolving energetic, material and information exchanges between humans, buildings and the wider environment, have the potential to actively construct and enable political participation through spatial transformation, data driven processing and informatics. These envelopes are positioned as agents within wider ecologies and social systems, and as sites for the design of robotic architectures to engage such questions.

title The Virtual Space of the Dynamic Hypermedia Device, a Habitable Space
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 10 - no. 2, 237-252
summary The hybrid contemporary space, which integrates urban and interactive virtual spaces, implies particular ways of inhabiting that suggests new identities, promoting the constant alternation between its different worlds.This article proposes to analyze and understand the design, construction and appropriation processes in this new social space-time. These processes are not only guaranteed by the accessibility to new media, but they involve the organization of complex strategies which included the development of instruments and landscapes that allow the migrations and interweaving between two realities: the urban and the virtual.This project generated an accumulation of unforgettable experiences that turned into a multiplicity of words and images that expanded through informal media or planned strategies.These activities allow reflecting upon the behaviors, meanings, and diverse thresholds that were constructed by the actors themselves during this process, and suggest new ways of being-in-the-world.

source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 47-51
summary The purpose of this project is to propose a reflection about the characteristics that interactive virtual spaces or interface-spaces must have, to be considered inhabiting places. This reflection is based on the analysis, design, construction and experimentation of different interface-spaces that respond to this premise, which are developed for different users-inhabitants in different contexts, and it will enable to elaborate design and evaluation guidelines based on orientation, accessibility, performativity, heuristics and usability criteria; related to the ways of interaction and communication that the virtual environment proposes, and the hypermedia language and narrative, under an open access-open code perspective.

summary This paper presents the Hybrid Territory Project, a cultural public policies research project carried ou by Nomads.usp, the Center for Studies of Interactive Living, of the University of São Paulo, Brazil. The central theme of the project is to understand how public cultural policies can make use of digital media in an effort to connect people and groups living in social realities apart from each other. The project seeks to bring physical and virtual instances together by means of cultural actions in urban areas. Moreover, it aims to design coexistence from joint work carried out by diverse actors, including architects, who have a voice in defi ning the project goals, actions, and methods. It is expected that the project will provide strategies for public policies to lay down conditions favoring the coexistence of differences in cities as enriching and desirable.

title Parametricism: Indian social need in complexity and chaos
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 433–442
summary Indian society living in its physical context and administrative boundaries is complex. The contemporary built environment imitating perceived advance technology where development is purely measured by material consumption is chaos. The present approach to meet dynamic and diverse demands emerging from the complexity and economical boom is fragmented and superficial. The challenge is to find order – the hidden patterns - through an approach that analysis and interprets the complexity with the holistic vision to offer contextual variety inclusive of qualitative richness in the existing chaos. Considering that Parametricism is based on algorithms and mathematics it is generally understood as quantification where as it is also important to understand its qualitative impact. The paper is an inquiry on qualitative gains of Parametricism that helps shaping society in Indian context. This is demonstrated by bringing forward understanding on qualitative gains of Parametricism exemplified with an academic exploration and inter-relating them with Indian examples to showcase the opportunities.

summary The introduction of digital technologies in architecture formed new relations between space and people that are affected by the redefi nitionof the spatial properties. Ambient projections can augment walls creating hybrid spatial confi gurations without changing the physical morphology of space. Such augmentations allow space to be transformed into a dynamic environment where visual boundaries are dissolved. This paper argues that in order to adapt our understanding of spatial analysis we need to look space as a dual system of physical and virtual properties incorporating human’s behavioural and perceptional changes.Extending the idea of visibility graph analysis by using the ‘augmented visibility’ representation, which includes a joined set of spaces in both physical and virtual domain, the paper presents interesting fi nding and correlations with data fromexperiment observations.

summary Facades have great impact in a house´s performance being directly linked to energetic consumption and comfort. Computing sciences propose the systematization of design processes, making it possible to determine an optimal configuration for a tropical building, in order to get a desired comfort performance, based on the implementation of parametric design and artificial intelligence. This research seeks sustainable design by implementing design guidelines, geometrical parameterization and its further optimization. Now it is possible from early stages of design to provide results that can benefit people generating comfort conditions.

title The fabrication of fabrication: a second order design process
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 10 - no. 3, 401-422
summary The project discussed here was developed during a research & design seminar on biologically inspired prototypingi. Based on the observation that nature produces infinite structural and formal configurations through re-cycling of only one material (fibers), a ‘machine’ was designed that can fabricate complex shapes using a variety of thread types. The paper theoretically situates a form-finding process with possible applications in construction and discusses the first phase of design as well as the early second stage and the factors that affect our decisions for future development. The author is concerned with the possible value of such a process for architecture, as well as a philosophical meaning of ‘layered’ design processes.

summary This paper offers an assessment of two methods for design, one based on intuitive design skills, the other on design decision based on feedback from analysis. The author is interested in the students’ perception of the process requirements within two different rule-based systems. The project, given within a class on biologically inspired design, demands a design solution that operates on two layers: the first being “function” the second “aesthetics”: students were asked to resolve a column, while designing for “Elegance”. Their work focused on an elegant building component without compromising structural efficiency. The results are discussed as indicators of possibly integrating analysis tools in creative processes and also understanding different learning paradigms for students.

summary With the development and maturity of various digital media, architectural design process has gained considerable more freedom as compared with modernism. Digitalized virtual environment and advanced industrial machines are continuously been discussed and applied to experimental projects, creating astonishing architectural shapes which have been diffi cult to create in the past. Under such digital architectural trend, this research analyzed various digital fabrication methods through different architectural projects. By comparing the properties and processes of each fabrication manner, we aim to come up with a preliminary framework of an executable fabrication process which synthesized advantages from multiple fabrication methods.
