title Crowdsourcing: Theoretical framework, computational environments and design scenarios
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. 393-401
summary Crowdsourcing is a new concept for breaking with the traditional hierarchical model of collaborative design. Crowdsourcing is based on web-based contributions of individuals in a decentralized digital environment that supports the sharing of opinions and creative ideas. This article develops the concepts and issues associated with the possibility of crowdsourcing design as well as discussing its relationship to prior developments of media environments for collaborative design. Three scenarios for crowdsourcing in architectural design are developed as a basis for considering the requirements for the design and function of crowdsourcing media environments in architectural design.

summary This study introduces a conceptual analysis, a typological framework which aims to map a wide array of possible virtual worlds into a larger frame and explore their signifi cance for architectural education. Using this analysis, we discuss the properties of virtual worlds in four groups: “the real virtual, virtual augmented real, real augmented virtual and fantastic virtual”. Based on these, we propose four different strategies for integrating virtual worlds into architectural education. Overall, this contribution can be seen as a small step towards the revitalization of the architectural design curriculum.

title Localised design-manufacture for developing countries: A methodology for creating culturally sustainable architecture using CAD/CAM
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 285–294
summary This paper demonstrates the production of endogenous solutions for global development when applying local workforce skills in the design-manufacturing process using available computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) tools. The methodology outlined in this paper improves technology uptake in developing countries by promoting localisation of the design-manufacture process coupled with local knowledge to promote culturally sustainable technology dissemination. This paper documents a set of design rules and manufacturing methods used to create precision moulds with locally available CAD/CAM tools. The moulds shown here were used by local craftsmen in the casting and construction of a prototypical precast architectural system deployed in the urban slums around Nairobi, Kenya.

summary This paper addresses the current void between social agendas, environmental criteria and design methodology in urban planning through the implementation of new computational systems. It considers the application of digital design tools such as GIS and parametric systems towards more effi cient and effective design solutions. The digital design methods have been developed and tested within Grimshaw Architects Design Technology Group on both Australian and international urban development projects. A methodology for the use of parametric design for urban design development is suggested for defi ning, simplifying and categorising planning and design strategies. The following tools are a means of generating urban design concepts as digital forms in order to better inform the designer during the design process.

summary Assuming that the city is not an accomplished system, but a living body, in constant development, this study proposes a Grasshopper generative algorithm, which aims to interpret the favelas’ dynamics forces, responsible for these spaces continuous transformations. The generative process so defined is an open project, where the inhabitants are free to adapt the house, along the time, to their specific space demand, even respecting some assembling rules and constructive principles. The final result is a social dwelling construction process where flexibility and adaptability are integrated into the project, and where the variable time accomplish an important role into space configuration.

title Everyone has Idea, Everyone Can Be Architect: Our First Step for Finding a Good Architecture
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. 667-676
summary It is an immutable truth that architecture ultimately exists for humans. Similarly, it is a well-known fact that countless architectural concepts derived and evolved to restrain development, to control building projects and to consider environment are eventually for the benefit of humans. Architecture today, however, is in the hands of a few renowned architects even though it is supposed to refl ect human beings and times and to work for everyone. Is it too much to say that everyone should have a say in the space used by many? In that respect, we have devised DADL System. Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere. The system is an architectural game that stimulates human instincts, has online communities and is easily accessible by Anyone Anytime and Anywhere (3A Rules). DADL System aims to gather users’ ideas and develop architecture, which is essentially enabled by the ‘Advise’ feature. Advise is designed to lead users to think about architecture voluntarily and to guide them to express their ideas. The structure and contents of Advises are very important factors in DADL System. Also, it is divided into two domains, i.e. Web and Mobile, where data exchange is enabled via cloud computing, establishing a base in compliance with the ‘3A’ Rules. The DADL System supports the architecture of everyone without relying on opinions of a few, so as to open the infi nitive potential for communication between architecture and humans, which today’s architecture should advocate.

title Information Technology Utilization in Architectural Engineering: A Field Investigation at the Department of Architecture and Construction, Constantine (Algeria)
source CAAD | INNOVATION | PRACTICE [6th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2012 / ISBN 978-99958-2-063-3], Manama (Kingdom of Bahrain), 21-23 February 2012, pp. 155-156; 273-284
summary This paper is derived from an under developed research work, that is a PhD thesis which studies the influence of Information Technology (IT) on architectural practice in Algeria. It examines the use of IT by students of the Department of Architecture and Construction in Constantine in their design studio’s projects. The target of the study is to inspect the depth of utilization of IT, identify the advantages and shortcomings of use, and propose some solutions. A field survey was undertaken on a sample of students at the Department of Architecture and Construction. The survey has the following objectives: • to find out the students’ motivation behind the adoption and use of IT in their projects; • to identify the negative and positive aspects of use; • to identify the barriers that would hinder better use; and • to determine the impact of the IT tools on the design process and projects. // For a more comprehensive comprehension of the study case; a pilot field survey was conducted during two consecutive years. This enables the researchers to make comparisons between the survey’s results of the same year, and to study the trends of use by making comparisons between the results of these two years. SPSS was used to analyze the results. The analysis of results shows that the IT helps largely to improve the quality of presentations of the documents, images and graphics but this was an attempt from students to satisfy and influence the "others". In some cases, this has negatively affected the quality of design projects. It was used by students with poor design skills to cover up some weak aspects and faults in their design projects. On the other hand, some tutors opposed the exaggerated use of IT and the complete dependence on the computer during the design stage. They prefer the "traditional way" of design development. There is an ongoing conflict and arguments between students and tutors regarding this matter. However, It was noticed that the IT has effectively contribute in improving the competition level between students thus the quality of their design projects.

summary Salient attributes of previously designed projects can be examined to understand how key parameters could inform current design practices. These parameters include gross floor area, number of stories, occupancy, material type, geographic location, seismicity, climatic influences, etc. Two informative analysis tools for intelligent design have been developed which can be used from preliminary planning stages to the final design of individual structures to district-wide developments. These tools can evaluate concurrent influences of these parameters on the built environment. The first is the Environmental Analysis Tool™ (EA Tool). The EA Tool quantifies the estimated equivalent carbon dioxide emissions of structural components. The second analysis tool is Parametric City Modeling (PCM). PCM estimates the usable area of a tower by estimating net floor area. These tools can also be applied to multiple buildings at a district scale to facilitate a new level of design in urban planning efforts. Design information embodied in the physical built environment finds new purpose in the informative prediction of performance at the on-set of digital design. Harvesting and mining data as a natural resource brings new potential to informed design. These concepts and subsequent tools are vital to building sustainable and efficient cities of the future.

summary BIM technology is currently being implemented in the construction industry, though it is still underdeveloped in relation to Facility Management (FC) of extant buildings. There is a strong potential for future development due to the visualization and data analysis capabilities of this technology, amongst others (Becerik-Gerber, Jazizadeh, Li, & Calis, 2012). This research investigates how BIM can be implemented in existing buildings currently in operation. Using a public facility at the University of Bio-Bio as a case study, conclusions are drawn with respect the capabilities of BIM in order to optimize maintenance and operation of existing buildings.

summary The dualities of ‘Humanity and Nature’, ‘Organic and Inorganic’, Artificial and Synthetic’ are themes that have permeated architectural discourse since the beginning of the 20th c. The interplay between nature and machine can be directly related to the 19th c. discussion of nature and industrialism that was exemplified in the works of Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright that spawned the organic architect movement. Echoes of these dichotomous themes have been resuscitated with the introduction of computational and information processing as a fundamental part of contemporary theory and critical praxis. The ability to go beyond simplistic dualities is promised by the introduction of data informed multi-variable processes that allow for complex parametric processes that introduce a range of criteria within evaluative design frameworks. The investigations detailed herein focuses on surface morphology development that are explored and evaluated for their capacity to reintegrate the ideas from genetic and developmental biology into an architectural discourse that has historically been dominated by the mechanistic metaphor perpetuated throughout the modern era. Biological analogues in nature suggest that the zone of decoration plays an important role in the environmental response and climate adaptability of architecture. The building envelope represents the greatest potential energetic gain or loss, as much as 50 %, therefore the architectural envelope plays the most significant role in energy performance of the building. Indeed, from an environmental performance standpoint, the formal response of the envelope should tend toward complexity, as biology suggests, rather than the reduced modernist aesthetic. Information architecture coupled with environment and contextual data has the potential to return the focus of design to the rhizome, as the functional expressions of climatic performance and thermal comfort interplay within other cultural, social and economic frameworks informing the architectural artifact. Increasing the resolution that ornament requires in terms of geometric surface articulation has a reciprocal affect on the topological relationship between surface and space: the architectural envelope can respond through geometry on the surface scale in order to more responsively interface with the natural environment. This paper responds to increasing computational opportunities in architectural design and manufacturing; first by exploring the historical trajectory of discourse on nature vs. machine in architecture, then exploring the implications for utilizing environmental data to increase the energy performance of architecture at the building periphery, where building meets environment creating the synthetic Built Ecology.

title Using Situated FBS Ontology to Explore Designers’ Patterns of Behavior in Parametric EnvironmentsStructurally Intelligent Swarms
source CAAD | INNOVATION | PRACTICE [6th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2012 / ISBN 978-99958-2-063-3], Manama (Kingdom of Bahrain), 21-23 February 2012, pp. 23-32
summary Current literature suggests that there is limited empirical evidence supporting the understanding of designers’ behavior or processes in parametric design environments (PDEs). This on-going study explores designers’ patterns of behavior in PDEs and its relationship with design creativity. To achieve this, we introduce the situated function-behavior-structure (FBS) model to develop a customized coding scheme for future protocol studies. This FBS ontological model has been adapted to reflect the characteristics of parametric design. We propose to apply the results of the protocol analysis in identifying three levels of design behavior patterns: behavior patterns derived from design processes, behavior patterns derived from the whole design life-cycle and those derived from the two levels of parametric design activities (design knowledge based activities and rule algorithm based activities). Future experiments and subsequent protocol analysis will apply the coding scheme to identify these behavioral patterns. The relationship with design creativity will then be explored by mapping the identified behavior patterns against the design outcome assessment.

summary This paper explores the interaction and different types of representations enacted in a BIM-enabled environment that involves interdisciplinary and intradisciplinary collaboration among teams of designers in an architectural praxis context. By means of an ethnographic study conducted over the course of an architectural project from schematic design to construction documents, including five disciplines and twenty subjects, genres of communication interfaces are identified between BIM-authoring tools, sketching interfaces and domain specific analysis tools, and explored within the realm of distributed cognition. Implications in architectural practice and education are then discussed.

title Pedagogic Approach in the Age of Parametric Architecture: Experimental method for teaching architectural design studio to 3rd year level students
source Digital Crafting [7th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2014 / ISBN 978-603-90142-5-6], Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), 31 March - 3 April 2014, pp. 211-226
summary In this era, Architectural Design Practice is faced with a paradigm shift in its conventional approaches towards computational methods. In this regard, it is considered a pedagogic challenge to boost up knowledge and skills of architectural students’ towards an advanced approach of architectural design that emphasizes the potentials and complexity of computational environments and parametric tools for design problem solving. For introducing the concept of Parametric Oriented Design Methods to 3rd year level architectural students, an experimental pedagogic course was designed in the scholastic year of 2012-2013 at German Jordanian University GJU (School of Architecture and Built Environment SABE) to approach this concept. In the preparation phase, the experimental course was designed to incorporate structured instructing and training method to be consecutively performed within experimental lab environment to target predetermined learning outcomes and goals. The involved students were intentionally classified into three levels of previous involvement associated with the related software operating skills and computational design exposure. In the implementation phase, the predetermined instructing and training procedures were performed in the controlled environment according to the planned tasks and time intervals. Preceded tactics were prepared to be executed to resolve various anticipated complication. In this phase also, students’ performance and comprehension capacity were observed and recorded. In data analysis phase, the observed results were verified and correlations were recognized. In the final phase, conclusions were established and recommendations for further related pedagogic experiments were introduced.

title Digital conception(s): Architectural concepts of digital design and making
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 699–708
summary This paper presents an investigation of probative works of architectural thought and production executed in various forms of digital design and computational media. The applied design research focuses on an examination of the procedure or process constructed to both develop exact, precise digital models and constructed processes that result in design outcomes that cannot be pre-visioned. The changing position of the conceptualisation within the design process continually changes the relationship of the digital work and the computational framework. The work challenges one to interpret design processes of translation and transformation, through the continual oscillation between developed in pursuit of known results and constructed methods for making, in an effort to unravel the pretext of the singular point of view to reveal the intention of the design conception(s). The projects discussed here focus on relationships between the projection of space in architectural representation and the production of architectural form through complex geometries relative to discontinuities and the way in which they agitate and alter one another. DIGITAL conception(s) operate across three primary areas of research; animation, conceptualisation and fabrication. The work oscillates between digital and physical artefacts that intertwine digital/physical workflows while simultaneously engaging temporal issues of time based media through motion graphics and animate constructs.
