summary The research presented in this paper revolves around the experimental development of the morpho-structural potential of folded architectural structures made of wood. The aims are to develop an innovative system for timber used in sustainable construction and to increase the inventory of wood architectural tectonics. Laminated timber panels associated with "digital production line" approach have opened up new perspectives for the building industry in creating prefabricated wooden structures. This article provides a characterization of the digital chain associated to the development of non-standard folded structures which consist of wood panels by way of a full-scale experimental pavilion. The purpose is the study of architectural design process from parametric modeling (through CNC machining) and assembly operations to production. Towards the completion of the pavilion, a number of analytical experiments have been performed.

title Generative Design for Folded Timber Structures
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 673-682
summary Folding structures belong to the group of lightweight structural systems, which often consist of polygonal elements like triangles or quadrangles. Folding structures whose construction is made out of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels represent an innovative step in the timber industry, which has many advantages. CLT panels can be used simultaneously as supporting elements and as finishing building envelopes. There are many prefabrication possibilities, high efficient material consumption, low production and assembly costs, and it has environmental advantages over conventional materials used for folding structure like concrete, metal or glass. CLT folding structures are not sufficiently explored. One of the reasons may lie in the fact of limited design possibilities, which includes the specificity of CLT capacity. Another reason is maybe the inability to use standard wooden connectors to transfer the forces along the thin linear edges where the panels are supported. The aim of this paper is to present design possibilities through parametric modelling using the characteristics of CLT. Using the example of a wooden theatre stage we will present results of our research.

title Phototropism of Tensile Façade System through Material Agency
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 127-136
summary This paper researches material agencies, mechanical systems and façade designs that are able to respond to environmental changes through local interactions, inspired by biological systems. These are based on a model of distributed intelligence founded on plants and animal collectives, from which intelligent behavior emerges through simple local associations. Biological collective systems integrate material form and responsiveness and have the potential to inform new architectural and engineering strategies. The design approach of this research is based on a data-driven methodology spanning from design inception to simulation and physical modeling. Data-driven models, common in the fields of natural science, offer a method to generate and test a multiplicity of responsive solutions. The driving concepts are three types of evolutionary adaptation: flexibility, acclimation, and learning. The proposed façade system is a responsive textile shading structure which uses integrated actuators that moderate their local environments through simple interactions with their immediate neighbors. Computational techniques coupled to material logics create an integral design framework leading to heterogeneous environmental and structural conditions, producing local responses to environmental stimuli and ultimately effective performance of the whole system.

title Adaptive Polymer Based BIPV Skin

summary This study focuses on developing three-dimensional solar panels, as an alternative to traditional flat Photovoltaic (PV) surfaces in Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV). We propose to increase the energy efficiency of buildings by using the entire envelope for energy production as well as by increasing the efficiency of solar energy output in orientations which were traditionally considered as non-ideal. The panels are constructed from Polycarbonate with integrated flexible photovoltaic film, solar paint or dye. The methodology included digital algorithm-based tools for achieving optimized variable three-dimensional surfaces according to local orientation and location, computational climatic simulations and comparative field tests. In addition, the structural, mechanical and thermal properties of the integration between flexible PV sheets and hard plastic curved panels were studied. Interim results demonstrate a potential improvement of 50-80% in energy production per building unit resulting from geometric variations per-se. The dependence of energy production by surface geometry was revealed and an optimized method for solar material distribution on the surface was proposed. A parametric digital tool for automatic generation of optimized three-dimensional panels was developed together with a database and material models of the optimized panels system.

summary The paper presents the initial results of a study that examines the potential of using the concept of topological interlocking as a structural and organizational mechanism for architecture in general, and for building façades in particular. The paper opens with a review of existing research on the notion of topological interlocking. It then presents a catalogue that characterizes the various types of topological interlocking systems and compares the potential of these types to be employed in architectural design. This is followed by a discussion regarding the results of fabrication experiments that examine the specific types, which appear to have the best potential for architectural design.

summary Advancements in technologies provide Architects, today, with the means to expose new expressive forms using traditional materials. It is therefore possible to design dynamic actuating systems, where several different expressions, or differentiations inherent in the same material, are able to modify its topology and enhance its properties. Wood, traditionally used in construction, is given static expression during its life cycle, where an alignment, or assembly detail, helps retain its original shape. This research outlines the integration of specific and individual anatomical information of wood during the design process. It aids in utilizing the analyzed biological variability and natural irregularities of wood within a material-based architecture, in view of developing a lightweight, and light-filtering dynamic skin. Additionally, the research helps to explore an understanding of the differentiated material composition of wood as its major capacity, rather than its deficiency. Moreover, it analyzes form, material, and structure, as complex interrelations that are embedded in, and explored through an integral design process that seeks to employ typically disregarded, highly differentiated flat materials, in view of enhancing their latent dimensional deformation potential. The main focus of this research is to explore that latent geometric deformation of emerging patterns based on an array of heterogeneous wood veneers in relation to their Hygroscopic and Anisotropic properties. These properties are expressed through a set of flat skins and Mobius arrangements, articulating complex geometric ranges that reveal additional properties, such as bendability and flexibility.

title Generative Processes in Tower Design: Simultaneous Integration of Tower Subsystems Through Biomimetic Analogies
source ACADIA 2105: Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene [Proceedings of the 35th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-53726-8] Cincinnati 19-25 October, 2015), pp. 173-184
summary The research presented in the paper formulates part of the methodological approach of a recently completed PhD thesis. The principle aim of the thesis is to achieve simultaneous integration of tower subsystems which can coherently adapt to their internal and external context during the initial phases of the design process. In this framework, the tower subsystems are grouped as the structural system, floor system, vertical circulation system, facade system, and environmental system. The paper focuses on the implementation of the specific biomimetic analogies towards the integration of tower subsystems through computationally generated dynamic systems. The biomimetic analogies are the mechanical and organizational properties of branched constructions, the mechanical properties of the bamboo stem, and the micro-structure of the porcupine quill/ hedgehog spine. Each biomimetic analogy is described in relation to the design domain. Methods of employing the mathematical and geometrical principles of the biomimetic analogies during design explorations are elaborated. Outcomes of the design output are outlined and discussed with a concentration on achieving tower subsystem integration, differentiation, and co-adaptation properties.

summary This paper presents research on the prototyping of multi-agent systems for architectural design. It proposes a design exploration methodology at the intersection of architecture, engineering, and computer science. The motivation of the work includes exploring bottom up generative methods coupled with optimizing performance criteria including for geometric complexity and objective functions for environmental, structural and fabrication parameters. The paper presents the development of a research framework and initial experiments to provide design solutions, which simultaneously satisfy complexly coupled and often contradicting objectives. The prototypical experiments and initial algorithms are described through a set of different design cases and agents within this framework; for the generation of façade panels for light control; for emergent design of shell structures; for actual construction of reciprocal frames; and for robotic fabrication. Initial results include multi-agent derived efficiencies for environmental and fabrication criteria and discussion of future steps for inclusion of human and structural factors.

summary With the rapid development of the digital fabrication technology, structural performance based design shows broad application prospects. Based on the research project "Reverse rafter", this paper aims to explore the possibility of simulating and re-applying Chinese traditional wood tectonics with structure performance based computational technology. Taking "eaves rafter" as research prototype, this project employed topology optimization as research method and “Millipede” as analysis tool. Through the comparison between the analysis results of traditional structure calculation and topology optimization method, this project revealed the underlying structural principles of "eaves rafter", based on which a modern reciprocal structure installation was generated through digital design method. CNC cutting technology was employed to ensure the fabrication accuracy in digital fabrication processes.

title Biomimetic-Computational Design for Double Facades in Hot Climates - A Porous Folded Façade for Office Buildings
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 687-696
summary Biomimetic design is an approach that is gaining momentum among architects and designers. Computational design and performance simulation software represent powerful tools that help in applying biomimetic ideas in architectural design and in understanding how such proposals would behave. This paper addresses the challenge of reducing cooling loads while trying to maintain daylight needs of office buildings in hot climatic regions. Specifically, it focuses on double skin facades whose application in hot climates is somewhat controversial. Ideas from nature serve as inspiration in designing a porous, folded double façade for an existing building, aiming at increasing heat lost by convection in the façade cavity as well as reducing heat gained by radiation. The cooling loads and daylight autonomy of an office room are compared before and after the proposed design to evaluate its performance.

summary This paper describes a design approach for discerning solar gain and assigning appropriate external shading devices. The approach includes a macro analysis locating where and when the building receives direct sunlight and locating desired interior daylighting; along with a micro analysis of how folded sun-shading motifs filter or block direct sunlight. The approach uses a collaborative analytical workflow with feedback from virtual and physical simulations informing design explorations. This iterative, reciprocating process is illustrated by student efforts to design shading structures for a building based on incident solar radiation. Designers begin with cutting and folding paper study models, then lasercut 2D tessellation patterns to create sculptural shading screens to be examined with a heliodon. Physical daylighting modeling reveals aesthetic opportunities to develop with parametric design. Motifs are then digitally modeled and analysed for shading effectiveness. Analysing the solar radiation of simple motifs helps beginners learn the software for subsequent urban situations. The efficacy of these simulations is discussed along with ways that the results could be interpreted to initiate design decisions for a building skin.

title Hybrid Representation: Intaglio Etching of Digital Models
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 13 - no. 3, 237-256
summary This paper explores an alternative approach to architectural representation by using computation and digital modeling to develop novel modes of drawing. The project was initiated for the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR 2014) and was exhibited in the seminal Kunsthal Rotterdam in the summer of 2014. The project, entitled Weerkas, was a set of twelve intaglio etchings. A combination of digital modeling programs such as Rhino, Grasshopper and 3D Studio Max and drafting software AutoCAD were used to develop the drawings. The digital files were photo-transferred and etched using a polymer intaglio plate. The analog/digital hybrid explores the limitations of such a combined means of expression and its possible significance in developing a two from three-dimensional drawing technique.

title Interactive Design Exploration with Alt.Text
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 13 - no. 2, 103-122
summary It is well accepted that search is an effective model for design. Newell and Simons’ Human Information Processing model is foundational to this view. Designers use symbols and structures to express, store, off-load, recall, and manage their work. They mix general and detailed elements, organize their problem-space differently, seek ways to identify repetitive tasks, and utilize external media. An integral aspect of design-search is the comparison of alternatives, because the goal is usually to come close, if not fully satisfy, a set of requirements. Searching problem-spaces with currently available tools is challenging due to a number of issues related to creating and comparing alternative representations of one’s thought process and outcome. In this paper, we present Alt.Text, a prototype that we developed to explore strategies for supporting design search. While Alt.Text only handles text-based documents, we believe that many of its features can be generalized to the domain of architectural design.

summary In the transformation of industrial ruins – machine-buildings belonging to a relatively recent past – the dichotomous processes of change and preservation allow to reinterpret the design action as the intrusion of a new life. In the projects for the reuse and recycling of productive heritage, the delicate balance between the safeguard of the identity and the updating of the image to the changing contemporary needs may be declined through the notions of novelty and originality in architecture. The concept of originality – meant as an original re-reading of the pre-existences – can produce novelty as a new spatial interpretation, capable of generating an authentic innovation even just through limited interventions. Two projects of transformation for productive buildings – both partly realized – may act as research media to describe this transition: ever since the first life of these buildings has been unequivocally concluded, their ruins have become an integral part of the landscape, standing in a state of waiting and calling for projects able to insufflate a second life within them.

summary Masonry Unit Database (MUD) is an integral part of Building Information Modeling for Masonry (BIM-M) initiative. MUD provides a data structure framework for storing the required data for digital representation of masonry units. Specific information about masonry units such as price, geometry and physical properties is needed throughout the lifecycle of a building project, including the design, construction, maintenance, and demolition stages. The development of MUD contributes to enhancement of masonry BIM tools for practitioners to incorporate up-to-date masonry product information into their projects. There are five main stages in the development of MUD: development of process map of masonry building project lifecycle, data requirement identification, physical design of database, design of data import structures, and finally design of data export structures. This paper focuses on the development of the SQL based MUD, and a Revit-Dynamo data export plugin for this database. The developed plugin is especially beneficial as it provides a tool for fast and accurate generation of the parametric and data enhanced masonry units as Revit families on the fly from the stored dimensions and attributes in the database. The generated masonry units with this method would be embedded in masonry wall systems in BIM building project.

title Transformable Physical Design Media

summary Computer-aided design tools have become an integral part of much architectural design practice, to the point where design is heavily dependent on the assistance of these tools. But current computer-aided design tools are fundamentally limited by the WIMP (windows, icons, menus, and pointer) interface, reliant on 2d input and output. Design of buildings and other 3D objects via 2D workflow is slowed by the conversions that designers must make. In this paper, we explore the potential of transformable physical design media through two design tool prototypes: Integrated spatial gesture-based direct 3D modeling and display system (InSpire), and tangible objects based massing study tool kits (CuBe). Both of these design tool prototypes allow designers to develop their design within a fully 3d environment with optical and haptic references, so that the interaction between designer and design object become much more intuitive and direct.We conclude by discussing some related subjects in the domain of HCI and argue that transformable physical design media represent a desirable solution for enhancing design experience. Architects and designers could benefit from the usage of transformable physical design media, especially during the early phases of architectural design by allowing designers to efficiently alter the topology properties.
