title Transformative Solar Panels: A Multidisciplinary Approach
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 11 - no. 2, 227-246
summary This paper focuses on the applications of geometrically transformable and expandable structures with deployed "energy production" mode and retracted "wind shedding" mode to replace the fixed photovoltaic (PV) panels and racking systems currently used in buildings rooftop installations. The significance of this expandable geometric system relies on its embedded motion grammar, i.e. rotation and translation transformations, in the system. The research draws inspiration from reconfiguration of compound tree leaves in nature, and addresses issues of redesign and modeling challenges that led to digital fabrication of the prototype. Finally, the research studies the development of a multidisciplinary research from the distributed cognition point of view, and emphasizes on the role of an iterative creation, sharing and reflection method for the development of a common ground for a successful collaboration.

title Morphological Behavior of Shape Memory Polymers Toward a Deployable, Adaptive Architecture
source ACADIA 13: Adaptive Architecture [Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-926724-22-5] Cambridge 24-26 October, 2013), pp. 121-128
summary Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) are an emerging class of “smart materials” that have dual-shape capability. They are able to undergo significant deformation when exposed to an external stimulus such as heat or light. SMPs have been widely investigated within the biomedicine and aerospace industries; however, their potential has yet to be explored within an architectural framework. The research presented in this paper begins an investigation into the morphological behavior ofSMPs toward a deployable, adaptive architecture. The structure’s ease of assembly, compact storage, transportability and configurable properties offer promising applications in emergency and disaster relief shelters, lightweight recreational structures and a variety of other applications in the temporary construction and aerospace industry. This paper explores the use of SMPs through the development of a dynamic actuator that links a series of interconnected panels creating overall form to a self-standing structure. The shape-shifting behavior of the SMP allows the dynamic actuator to become flexible when storage and transportability are required. Alternatively, when exposed to the appropriate temperature range, the actuator is capable of returning to its memorized state for on-site deployment. Through a series ofprototypes, this paper will provide a fundamental understanding of the SMP’s thermo-mechanicalproperties toward deployable, adaptive architecture.

title Peripheral Tools to Support Collaboration: Probing to Design Collaboration Through Role-Playing
source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 241-250
summary Peripheral devices like smart phones offer an opportunity to lower the barrier to spontaneous collection and sharing of information during distributed collaboration. We have completed development of guidelines and a framework that focuses on peripheral devices in collaboration. In order to explore the design space generated by our principles, we conducted a role-playing experiment about commissioning a building, in which an “on-site” team and a “design” team were expected to find and resolve discrepancies between requirements, design documents, and the actual site. The teams were given Styrofoam panels to act as pretend smart peripherals to invoke play and help probe the design space. We found that “reflection on action” (debriefing and subsequent brainstorming) was fruitful for ideation and theorem building about interaction, but “reflection in action” failed. Yet, reflection in action, particularly with such probes, is important to capture the “mechanics of collaboration”. Therefore, we are considering adapting improvisational theatre to our study of distributed collaboration.

title Adaptive [skins]: Responsive building skin systems based on tensegrity principles
source FUTURE TRADITIONS [1st eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings / ISBN 978-989-8527-03-5], University of Porto, Faculty of Architecture (Portugal), 4-5 April 2013, pp. 155-170
summary The project investigates responsive building skin systems that adapt to the dynamic environmental conditions to regulate the internal conditions in a habitable space over different periods of time by exhibiting a state of motion and dynamism. Heat and Light are the primary parameters for regulation, leading to energy efficiency and dynamic spatial effects. Passive and active skins using shape memory alloys and pneumatic actuators are developed through investigations of smart systems that integrate smart materials and smart geometries. The precedents in this domain have rarely dealt with individually controlled multiple parameters of heat and light in a single system, which is attempted in this project. Owing to the complexity of the multi-parametric system, genetic algorithms are developed for system optimization and calibrated with physical prototypes at varied scales. The developed systems are tested against two distinct climatic models- New Delhi and Barcelona, and evaluated for performance, based on heat and light, which are quantified as solar gain and illuminance as principles, and daylight factor for evaluation purpose. The use of genetic algorithms makes the problem solving faster and accurate. New tool-sets are developed in the process by combining various digital tools, to create a real-time feedback and memory loop system.

title The Role of Functional Knowledge in Multidisciplinary Design: The Case of Solar Energy Integration in Buildings
source SIGraDi 2013 [Proceedings of the 17th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-7051-86-1] Chile - Valparaíso 20 - 22 November 2013, pp. 333 - 337
summary The paper presents a model-based methodology to support multidisciplinary collaboration for the application of photovoltaic systems to buildings. It focuses on the representation of domain specific knowledge necessary for the design of novel PV racking and mounting structures, based on principles of multi-functionality and functional integration. The proposed representation is based on a language for modeling functional requirements in terms of causal behaviors. These behavioral models provide common ground not only for multidisciplinary design, but also for the elaboration of performance metrics and verification procedures for evaluation of design alternatives. The paper concludes with a discussion on the potential of Model-based approach to support innovation in Design.

title Alloplastic Architecture: The Design of an Interactive Tensegrity Structure
source ACADIA 13: Adaptive Architecture [Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-926724-22-5] Cambridge 24-26 October, 2013), pp. 129-136
summary This paper attempts to document the crucial questions addressed and analyze the decisions made in the design of an interactive structure. One of the main contributions of this paper is to explore how a physical environment can change its shape to accommodate various spatial performances based on the movement of the user’s body. The central focus is on the relationship between materials, form and interactive systems of control.Alloplastic Architecture is a project involving an adaptive tensegrity structure that responds to human movement. The intention is to establish a scenario whereby a dancer can dance with the structure such that it reacts to her presence without any physical contact. Thus, three issues within the design process need to be addressed: what kind of structure might be most appropriate for form transformation (structure), how best to make it adaptive (adaptation) and how to control the movement of the structure (control). Lessons learnt from this project, in terms of its structural adaptability, language of soft form transformation and the technique of controlling the interaction will provide new possibilities for enriching human-environment interactions.

summary What if we had materials that weren’t solid and static like traditional building materials are? What if these materials could dynamically change and adapt to varying environmental situations and stimulations and evolve and learn over time? What if they were autonomous, self-sufficient and independent but could communicate with each other and exchange information? What would this “living matter” mean for architecture and the way we perceive the built environment? This paper looks briefly at current concepts and investigations in regards to programmable matter that occupy various areas of architectural research. It then goes into detail in describing the most recent smart material installation “Resinance” that was supervised by Manuel Kretzer and Benjamin Dillenburger and realized by the 2012/13 Master of Advanced Studies class as part of the materiability research at the Chair for CAAD, ETH Zürich in March 2013. The highly speculative sculpture links approaches in generative design, digital fabrication, physical/ubiquitous computing, distributed networks, swarm behavior and agent-based communication with bioinspiration and organic simulation in a responsive entity that reacts to user input and adapts its behavior over time.

title Assimilating Interactive Technology into Architectural Design – A Quest for developing an ‘Architectural Drawing’ for Urban Interaction Design as a Communication Platform Through Combining Physical Sensing Devices with Simulation Software
source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 365-373
summary Assimilating Interactive Technology into Architectural Design – A Quest for developing an ‘Architectural Drawing’ for Urban Interaction Design as a Communication Platform Through Combining Physical Sensing Devices with Simulation Software The research presented in this paper investigates the need for an equivalent of architectural drawings for urban interaction design in an architectural scale in order to communicate interaction design intentions to design participants and clients through using state of the art computer, gaming and sensor technologies. The paper discusses two projects (a) Blur Building, as a large scale interaction design project executed through an experienced team and (b) presents as student design project coordinated by the researchers as a reference project. Both projects in this paper are discussed and evaluated from an Urban Interaction Design point of view. This   paper   emphasizes   the   significance   for   establishing ‘drawing’ equivalents for urban interaction design, discussing representation of ideas in architectural design; followed by outlining existing methods of interactive design representation, such as storyboards to then introduce current advancements in gaming environments. The following paper introduces a framework for future research projects that will design, deploy and evaluate of prototypes as a communication platform combining physical sensing devices in combination with gaming engines to enable a digital / physical hybrid. This would allow designers and clients to test, evaluate and improve urban interactions in a design phase prior to completing the project.

title A Minimal Tension Canopy – Through Investigations of Self-Organised Systems
source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 147-156
summary The dynamics of a physics-based algorithm which acquires its complex organization through a number of localised interactions applied over a prescribed network can be described as a self-organised system. This in turn has the capacity to define explicit form and space based upon behavioural computational processes with an embedded structural logic. This paper discusses the way in which physics based algorithms can be used to inform the organisation of a compressional structure in a case study. Its structure is based on Hooke’s law of elasticity; which establishes a three dimensional catenary logic through a number of localised interactions applied over an entire network. This is applied to a project with specific constraints to site, boundary conditions and maximising solar gain whilst maintaining structural rigidity. The methodological approach describes the design to assembly process in which the project has been developed. This includes the applied generative design tools in order to establish the self-organised logic, the form finding process, the techniques of design documentation, the fabrication process and the logistics of construction and assembly.

summary The paper presents a developed method and algorithm to create environmental sustainable optimised forms based on the solar energy received in relation to receiving, containing and distributing energy. Different studies are created based upon this approach, to which forms are evaluated against conventional building geometries. The work shows a significant improvement on several aspects of environmental performance. Lastly the work presents an idea of maximum structures, rather than minimum structures as a path in future research work.

summary As architectural design methodologies focus increasingly on the production of dynamic form, the means to actuate these forms, the input that fuels parametric processes, analytical form-generating techniques and responsive controls is of primary concern. In the virtual test beds where systems are developed, inputs are often ad-hoc, based on crude assumptions of the environment, or disconnected from the physical environment entirely.Inverting a technique originally developed to illuminate virtual objects with light captured from real (physical) environments, this project explores image-based lighting as a means of detailed environmental light sensing. The objective of the project is to demonstrate the application of High Dynamic Range (HDR) image data acquired continuously in the physical world as signal input to inform, actuate and evaluate responsive solar control and daylighting systems. As a proof of concept, a virtual hemispherical dome consisting of 145 apertures is controlled to respond in real time to continuous image-based measurements of sky luminance, seeking a defined set of daylighting and solar control objectives. The paper concludes by discussing the implications of incorporating real-world environmental data in the development of dynamic form.

title Exploring Urban Space: Volumetric Site Analysis for Conceptual Design in the Urban Context
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 11 - no. 2, 157-182
summary This paper proposes a set of new analytic and visualization methods for conceptual design in the urban context. The methodology is based on the discretization of the urban site into a volumetric grid of points. For each of these points, different physical properties such as solar radiation, airflow, and visibility are computed. Subsequently interactive visualization techniques allow the observation of the site at a volumetric, directional and dynamic level, making visible information that is typically invisible. Several case-studies demonstrate how this allows to generate suggestions, for example, for the definition of the form of a building or for the rationalization of its surfaces. This approach aims at developing a conceptual design process that allows the fusion of active technologies, passive methods, and expressive aspects, in cohesive concepts able to embrace and exploit the diversities of an urban site.

title SolarPierce: A Solar Path Based Generative System

summary In hot and arid climates, limiting solar heat gain while also providing daylight into a structure is a major concern in building design. Building skin that gradually changes in porosity can help limit solar heat gain. Since solar heat gain is primarily a problem during summer, the path the sun follows during summer must be taken into account in determining opening sizes. In this paper, the researcher reports on a study where a generative system called SolarPierce was developed using AutoLISP, the scripting language of AutoCAD, to generate solid geometry for a building skin based on the sun’s path in a given geographical area. The system automatically punches different size openings in a given shell structure where openings facing the sun are the smallest and those fully facing away from the sun are the largest. Opening sizes gradually change from a given minimum to a given maximum depending on how much they face the sun.

source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 107-116
summary Our research focuses on bio-inspired evolutionary design based on genetic algorithms to explore façade surfacesthat improve adaptivity and solar performance of stadium design during the early stages of design development. This paper describes prototype implementation of an automated computer design system, its architecture, and initial results. Our approach highlights importance of early exploration of architectural geometries by rapidly narrowing down optimised design solutions within an infinite search space of possible design solutions. Additionally, the prototype supports automatic generation of design variations and demonstrates potential use of genetic algorithms as a means to constrained design exploration.

title Customizable Volumetric High Performance Brise-Soleil System Based on the Use of Planar Faces

summary This paper presents a proposal for a cellular brise-soleil system appropriate for tropical humid climates. The system controls thermal gains whilst allowing for specific lighting requirements, permitting, in many cases, interior thermal and light comfort conditions without the use of thermal machines or artificial lighting. The development of the system involved a definition of variable design parameters and areas of performance evaluation and optimization, plus construction detailing development represented by a first project to be completed in 2014. Even if the geometrical definitions, optimization processes and production machinery are relatively simple and not particularly new to anyone in the field, it is claimed that the use of such already widely available technologies at this basic level, when solving relevant problems, has still to be used in generalised ways by common designers, and with the example shown, this paper wishes to promote such prospect.

source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 653-662
summary This paper reports on the final stage of a research project with the realization of a real scale prototype and ties an empirical finale to the project, which started as a fundamental research project three years ago. The scope of this research project was to explore new ways, how Non-Standard Architecture can be build with standard building elements using contemporary building processes and materials resource efficiently. Mass Customization and File to Factory, concepts where a continuous digital workflow is applied, were fundamental to our approach. Within this framework we developed generic parametric details and made them part of the whole process from the beginning of the design to the manufacturing. The present paper describes a strategy for the assembly of a large prototype, consisting of approximately 50 flat timber panels that are being assembled to a structure of the size of a small house. The paper focuses especially on the customized falsework, we designed for the construction of the prototype, which became a crucial part of the assembling process besides the assembly of the actual prototype.

summary In this paper, we look at the surface tessellation problem, in particular, the problem of meshing a surface with the added consideration of incorporating constructible building components. When a surface is tessellated into discrete counterparts, certain conditions usually occur on the surface boundaries that are caused by trimming operations; for example, irregularly shaped panels at the trimmed edges. We present an algorithmic approach to tessellating quad-dominant mesh surfaces to deal with such irregular boundary conditions, and demonstrate its application through surface subdivision examples.

summary The present work constitutes the first stage of an ongoing research on the interaction between morphological characteristics of the urban fabric and the amount of social activity in such spaces. In order to analyze such correlation, the current research links together two different field of studies: Space Syntax on one side, for the morphological analysis of the spatial configuration of the urban fabric, and a remote sensing study about social activity in the analyzed urban context, on the other. Data extracted from location-based online Social Networks databases (e.g. Foursquare) are employed in order to perform such survey. The resulting methodology constitutes an early attempt to set a novel approach to the study of the relationships between the morphological and configurational characteristics of urban systems and actual human dynamics in urban contexts.

summary ‘Ambient Terrain’ explores the application of large-scale, sensor-based site analysis. The research develops various techniques dealing with the logging, storage, retrieval, analysis, and representation of sensor and image-based data. These techniques could be utilized in concert with traditional site preparation and site information gathering processes, and could arguably serve to reevaluate the site preparation process altogether in a manner which not only focuses on terrestrial data, but also on metrics which are dynamic and multidimensional.The research proposes direct applications for urban space and the built environment, in the modes of site appraisal, design and the generation of new spatial strategies.
