title The Potential of Non-Manifold Topology in the Early Design Stages
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. 381-493
summary The importance of decisions made during the early design stages has prompted researchers to advocate the use of building performance simulation (BPS) during that stage. This paper investigates non-manifold topology (NTM) as a novel approach to 3D modelling that has the potential to be highly compatible with the early design stages and with the input requirements for BPS. The proposed approach avoids the process of simplifying polyhedral models produced by Building Information Modelling (BIM) software to conduct BPS. In particular, NTM allows for a clear segmentation of a building, unambiguous space boundaries, and perfectly matched surfaces and glazing subsurfaces. The NTM approach was tested through a software prototype that integrates 3D modelling software and an energy simulation engine.

title Generating Schematic Diagrams of MEP Systems from 3D Building Information Models for Use in Conservation
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. 293-302
summary In this paper, we propose a method of generating schematic diagrams from 3D models of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems in order to represent this information in a more traditional, user-friendly format. It can be difficult to grasp the relationships between various MEP elements in building information models (BIM) because they are represented in a visually complex, three-dimensional manner. On the other hand, the relationships between building elements can be easily understood when using traditional schematic diagrams. First, sets of connected elements are extracted from a 3D model of MEP elements using their connection properties. Next, various elements of these systems are identified as nodes and their connections are represented as edges. Finally, these systems are displayed as a schematic diagram using element attribute information.

title Integrating clinic process flow, space syntax and space adjacency analysis: Formalization of computational method in building programming
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 262-272.
summary This paper presents a computational space adjacency analysis method by integrating information and analysis from process flow methods used in the healthcare system with space syntax methods used in architecture. These methods involve similar conceptual properties related to activity, space and flow. However, their implementation in the building programming process is disconnected, and relies solely on experience and expert opinions. The basic approach for the integration was by abstracting these similar properties in the process flow diagram, space connectivity diagram, and justified plan graph into nodes and edges representations. A case study of a clinic that is currently in the construction phase was used to develop the integration procedure and comparison analysis with the actual floorplan.

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 Performative Design and Fabrication of a Parametric Wall Screen for Tropical Climates - A Modular Approach
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. 521-530
summary We have developed a modular approach to the parametric design of a patterned façade for tropical climates, using a “lighter” data set and model that integrates a number of performance considerations. This modular approach separates the façade's design into form, façade pattern, façade density requirements, and façade components, and reintegrates these aspects via a triangular mesh, represented as a fast and convenient data structure based on half-edges. Through this separation, the design team can simultaneously work on the architectural appearance of the design, its performance, and its fabrication, while retaining holistic control through the constant reintegration of design changes via the half-edge data structure. In this way, we retain the advantages of a parametrically driven design process, such as automatic design generation and the integration of performance aspects, while permitting more flexible and non-sequential design explorations by different members of the design team.

title Integrating Responsive and Kinetic Systems in the Design Studio: A Pedagogical Framework
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. 71-80
summary Responsive architecture is one of the growing areas of computational design that is not getting adequate attention in CAAD curricula. A pedagogical approach to designing responsive systems requires more than the typical knowledge, tools or skill sets in architectural design studios. This paper presents a framework for integrating responsive and kinetic systems in the architectural design studio. The framework builds on findings of two design studios conducted at The American University in Cairo, Egypt. In both studios, students were asked to design elements of responsive architecture that work towards the development of their projects. The paper demonstrates the process and outcomes of both studios. It then demonstrates how concepts of integrated project delivery are incorporated to propose a framework that engages students in designing, fabricating and operating responsive systems in different phases of the design process. A discussion follows regarding dynamics of design studio in light of the proposed framework.

title Making Sense of those Batteries and Wires: Parametric Design between Emergence and Autonomy
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 279-296.
summary This paper reports on the process and outcomes of a digital design studio that integrates parametric design and generative systems in architectural and urban design projects. It explores the interrelationship between the emergence of innovative formal representations using parametric design systems on the one hand, and design autonomy; more specifically the conscious process of generating and developing an architectural concept, on the other. Groups of undergraduate students working on an architectural project are asked to identify a specific conceptual parti that addresses an aspect of architectural quality, define strategies that satisfy those aspects, and computational methodologies to implement those strategies, such as rule-based systems, self-organization systems, and genetic algorithms. The paper describes the educational approach and studio outcomes, discusses implications for CAAD education and curricula, and addresses issues to be considered for parametric and generative software development.

title Closing the Loop for Interactive Architecture - Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, and Wearables
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. 623-632
summary Interactive architecture occurs in buildings when part of the building engages in exchange of information with the user, in such a way that the interactive system adjusts it's assumptions about the user's needs and desires. Acquiring the user's needs and desires is no trivial task. Currently there are no techniques that will reliably make such assertions. Building a system that unobtrusively monitors the inhabitant seems to be a tall order, and making the system ask the user all the time is very distracting for the user. An alternative option has become available however: personal wearables are increasingly monitoring the user. Therefore it suffices that the interactive system of the building gets in touch with those wearables, rather than duplicating the sensing function of the wearables. The enabling technology for wearables is Internet of Things, which connects physical objects (smart objects) on a virtual level, and Cloud Computing, which provides a scalable storage environment for wearables and smart objects. In this paper we outline the implications of the convergence of these three technologies in the light of interactive architecture.

title Error as Optimization - Using Cellular Automata Systems to Introduce Bias in Aggregation Models through Multigrids
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. 601-610
summary This paper is focusing on the idea of error as the origin of difference in form but also as the path and the necessity for optimization. It describes the use of Cellular Automata (CA) for a series of structural and formal elements, whose proliferation is guided through sets of differential grids (multigrids) and leads to the buildup of big span structures and edifices as, for example, a cathedral. Starting from the error as the main idea/tool for optimization, taxonomies of morphological errors occur and at a next step, they are informed with contextual elements to produce an architectural system. A toolbox is composed that can be implemented in different scales and environmental parameters, providing variation, optimization, complexity and detail density. Different sets of experiments were created starting from linear structural elements and continuing to space dividers and larger surface components.

title The Use of Digital Fabrication as a Sketching Tool in the Architectural Design Process - A Case Study
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. 319-324
summary Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies including computer numerically controlled (CNC) milling, laser cutting and 3D printing are becoming cheaper and globally more accessible. Accordingly, many design professionals, academics and students have been able to experience the benefits and challenges of using digital fabrication in their designs. The use of digital fabrication in the education of architecture students has become normal in many schools of architecture, and there is a growing demand for computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) logic and fabrication knowledge in student learning. Clearly, architecture students are acquiring material base-thinking, time management, production methods and various software skills through this digital fabrication. However, it appears to be the case that architecture students use digital fabrication mainly in the final stage of their design or in their finishing work. In this study, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies have been used as a sketch tool rather than simply for fabricating a final product in the architectural design process and the advantages of this educational practice are demonstrated.

summary In continuation to the Deceptive Landscape Installation research project (Agkathidis, Kocatürk 2014), this paper investigates the implementation of generative design techniques in undergraduate architectural design education. After reviewing the main definitions of generative design synoptically, we have assessed the application of a modified generative method on a final year, undergraduate design studio, in order to evaluate its potential and its suitability within the framework of a research led design studio, leading to an RIBA accredited Part I degree. Our research findings based on analysis of the design outputs, student performance, external examiners reports as well as student course evaluation surveys indicate a positive outcome on the studio's design approach, as well as its suitability for an undergraduate design studio. They initiate a flourishing debate about accomplishments and failures of a design methodology, which still remains alien to many undergraduate curricula.

title Social Sensory Architectures: Articulating Textile Hybrid Structures for Multi-Sensory Responsiveness and Collaborative Play

summary This paper describes the development of the StretchPLAY prototype as a part of the Social Sensory Surfaces research project, focusing on the design of tactile and responsive environments for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The project is directed specifically at issues with sensory processing, the inability of the nervous system to filter sensory input in order to indicate an appropriate response. This can be referred to as a “traffic jam” of sensory data where the intensity of such unfiltered information leads to an over-intensified sensory experience, and ultimately a dis-regulated state. To create a sensory regulating environments, a tactile structure is developed integrating physical, visual and auditory feedback. The structure is defined as a textile hybrid system integrating a seamless knitted textile to form a continuous topologically complex surface. Advancements in the fabrication of the boundary structure, of glass-fiber reinforced rods, enable the form to be more robustly structured than previous examples of textile hybrid or tent-like structures. The tensioned textile is activated as a tangible interface where sensing of touch and pressure on the surface triggers ranges of visual and auditory response. A specific child, a five-year old girl with ASD, is studied in order to tailor the technologies as a response to her sensory challenges. This project is a collaboration with students, researchers and faculty in the fields of architecture, computer science, information (human-computer interaction), music and civil engineering, along with practitioners in the field of ASD-based therapies.

title Biomimetic-Computational Design for Double Facades in Hot Climates - A Porous Folded Façade for Office Buildings

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 The Klimasymmetry research project is part of ongoing investigations that ask how the design of a surface emanating radiant heating and cooling can influence the non-visual spatial boundaries created by asymmetrical thermal conditions. This research investigates the nature of the surface as an initiator of a thermal environment in an attempt to locate thermal tactility and the spatial perception according to radiant heat transfer. Surface qualities such as the quantity of area and thermal capacity of the material affects the ability of the panel to emit or absorb electromagnetic radiation, informing the geometry, topography, and location of each panel relative to the human body.

summary Nowadays as the aim to reduce the environmental impact of buildings becomes more apparent, a new architectural design approach is gaining momentum called sustainable architectural design. Sustainable architectural design process includes some regulations itself, which requires calculations, comparisons and consists of several possible conflicting objectives that need to be considered together. A successful green building design can be performed by the creation of alternative designs generated according to all the sustainability parameters and local regulations in conceptual design stage. As there are conflicting criteria's according to LEED and BREAM sustainable site parameters, local regulations and local climate conditions, an efficient decision support system can be developed by the help of Pareto based non-dominated genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) which is used for several possibly conflicting objectives that need to be considered together. In this paper, a model which aims to produce site layout alternatives according to sustainability criteria for cooperative apartment house complexes, will be mentioned.

summary This paper presents a parametric approach toward studying the characteristics of the Islamic geometric patterns (IGP). The presented computational system utilizes a parametric description of the geometry to initiate the process of metamorphosis exploration and to document the generated variations. The study found that changing the parameters in the description produces new variations that have a wide range of qualitative and quantitative properties; some match exactly the properties of traditionally existed geometries.
