title A Marker-less Augmented Reality System using Image Processing Techniques for Architecture and Urban Environment
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 713-722
summary In this study, Augmented Reality (AR) system is proposed to be used for outdoor renovation and maintenance projects of build- ings. The research proposes an outdoor marker-less AR system that considers the mobility of users and their long relative distance to tar- get buildings where 3D virtual objects should be augmented on. The proposed system uses local feature-based image registration technolo- gy and Structure from Motion (SfM) which reconstructs 3DCG mod- els using photographs from multiple viewpoints. A case study has been performed for a research building renovation scenario at Osaka University. The case study verified the performance of image registra- tion and tracking, and confirmed the applicability of the method.

title Evolutionary Solar Architecture - Generative Solar Design Through Soft Forms and Rigid Logics
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 55-64
summary This paper describes the development of a workflow for the production of a net zero off-grid research cabin.  The workflow deploys a number of affiliated parametric software packages as a form finding tool for the exterior envelope of this structure, with a focus on passive solar design as a generative formal driver. The design was required to incorporate the spatial and programmatic needs of the users in a compact, barrier free, net zero building. Simultaneously, the research question asked the designers to harness the potential of digital design in the consideration of future fabrication techniques, in order to optimize the building’s performance and the speed and quality of assembly once the project moves into construction. Parameters considered include solar exposure, external surface area, cost, fabrication, functionality, and aesthetic criteria. This project was developed by a multidisciplinary team of graduate students at the University of Calgary.

title Origami Explorations - A Generative Parametric Technique For kinetic cellular façade to optimize Daylight Performance
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 399-408
summary At present the kinetics is basic, but there is no doubt that research into the field of responsive building facades will continue, to find more sophisticated design and technical solutions. This research explores the possibilities of kinetic composition afforded by Origami different techniques using squared module. Origami and paper pleating techniques are one of the conceptual design approaches from which Kinetics can be developed. The paper examines the possibilities of different arrangements of folded modules to create environmental efficient kinetic morphed skins. The paper aims to achieve different Kinetic origami-based shading screens categorized by series of parameters to provide appropriate daylighting. The main tested parameters are the form of Origami folds, the module size and motion scenarios. Ten origami cases where explored first using conceptual folded paper maquette modules, then parametrically modelled and simulated at four times of the year, 21st of March, June, September and December, taken every hour of the working day.

title A Multi-Agent System for Facade Design: A design methodology for Design Exploration, Analysis and Simulated Robotic Fabrication
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 12-23
summary For contemporary design practices, there still remains a disconnect between design tools used for early stage design exploration and performance analysis, and those used for fabrication and construction of complex tectonic architectural systems. The research brings forward downstream fabrication constraints into the up-stream design exploration and design decision making. This paper addresses the issues of developing an integrated digital design work-flow and details a research framework for the incorporation of environmental performance into a robotic fabrication for early stage design exploration and generation of intricate and complex alternative façade designs. The method allows the user to import a design surface, define design parameters, set a number of environmental performance objectives, and then simulate and select a robotic construction strategy. Based on these inputs, design alternatives are generated and evaluated in terms of their performance criteria in consideration of their robotically simulated constructability. In order to validate the proposed framework, an experimental case study of office building façade designs that are generatively created from a multi-agent system for design methodology is design explored and evaluated. Initial results define a heuristic function for improving simulated robotic constructability and illustrate the functionality of our prototype. Project limitations and future research steps are then discussed.

title Generating an Anamorphic Image on a Curved Surface Utilizing Robotic Fabrication Process

summary The integration of industrial robots in the creative art industry has increased in recent years. Implementing both brick stacking robotic fabrication, following a curved wall, and generating an image viewed from a single point, by rotating the bricks around their centres, has yet to be studied. The goal of this research is to develop a functional, parametric working model and a workflow that ensure easy manipulation and control of the desired outcome via parameters. This paper shows a workflow for the automatic generation of anamorphic structures on a curved wall by utilizing modular brick-like elements. As a result, a code for the robot controller and the position of the structure during fabrication are provided.

title The Grammar of Crystallographic Expression
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 236-243
summary This paper stems from a research collaboration which brings together two disciplines at different ends of the scale spectrum: crystallography and architecture. The science of crystallography demonstrates that the properties of crystalline materials are a function of atomic/molecular interactions and arrangements at the atomic level—i.e., functions of the form and structure of the material. Some of these nano-geometries are frameworks with special characteristics, such as uni-directional porosity, multi-directional porosity, and varied combinations of flexibility and strength. This paper posits that the symmetry operations implicit in these materials can be regarded as a spatial grammar in the design of objects, spaces, and environments. The aim is to allow designers and architects to access the wealth of structural information that is now accumulated in crystallographic databases as well as the spatial symmetry logics utilized in crystallography to describe molecular arrangements. To enable this process, a bespoke software application has been developed as a tool-path to allow for interoperability between crystallographic datasets and CAD-based modelling systems. The application embeds the descriptive logic and generative principles of crystallographic symmetry. Using this software, the project, inter alia, produces results related to a class of geometrical surfaces called Triply Periodic Minimal (TPM) surfaces. In addition to digital iterations, a physical prototype of one such surface called the gyroid was constructed to test potential applications in design. The paper describes the development of these results and the conclusions derived from the first stage of user testing.

title Revising Stereotomy through Digital Technology

summary Stereotomy is usually regarded as a classic discipline in the field of architecture which has lost its relevance to other construction methods. Recently we have witnessed approaches to the stereotomic way of building using modern digital technologies, bringing the discipline to the present. On the other hand, the complex shaped buildings being built in the present seem to lack some kind of structure visible in classic stone architectures. A shift in construction methods must be attended to, with its metallic beams and concrete massifs. For an understanding of what remains the same and what changes from the classic literature, this paper tries to create analogies between contemporary architecture surfaces and the discrete stone structures of the past. To achieve this, a concept of stereotomy semantics is introduced, creating a different posture towards the problem of division of surface in architecture.

title Using Tensegrity and Folding to Generate Soft Responsive Architectural Skins
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 529-536
summary This paper describes the process of designing a prototype for a soft responsive system for a kinetic building facade. The prototype uses lightweight materials and mechanisms to generate a building facade skin that is both soft (less dependent on hard mechanical systems) and responsive (dynamically and simultaneously adapting to spatial and environmental conditions). By combining concepts stemming from both tensegrity structures and folding mechanisms, we develop a prototype that changes dynamically to produce varying facade patterns and perforations based on sensor-network data and feedback. We use radiation sensors and shape memory alloys to control the prototype mechanism and allow for the required parametric adaptation. Based on the data from the radiation sensors, the lengths of the shape memory alloys are altered using electric wires and are parametrically linked to the input data. The transformation in the resulting overall surface is directly linked to the desired levels of daylighting and solar exposure. We conclude with directions for future research, including full scale testing, advanced simulation, and multi-objective optimization.

title Combination of mass customisation and conventional construction: A case study of geodesic bamboo dome
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 777-786
summary With the development of advance fabrication, several digi- tal fabrication approaches have been developed. These approaches en- able better form exploration than the conventional manufacturing pro- cess. But, the built examples mostly rely on advance machinery which was not familiar or available in developed country where construction workers are still abundant. Meanwhile, much knowledge gathers in the field practice. This research is aimed to explore an alternative con- struction workflow and method with the combination of mass custom- ization and conventional construction method and to propose the structure system that emphasized this alternative workflow and meth- od. Lattice structure was proposed. The conventional construction method was used in the struts production and mass customization method, laser cutting, and was used for connection production. The algorithmic process was used mainly for data mining, details design, and component production. The backtracking was needed to be pre- dicted and addressed previously. Considerations that will be needed to be tested by further example are on the transition from the digital pro- cess to the manual process. Next research could be for analysing the other engineering aspect for this prototype and suggesting other struc- tural system with more optimal combination of conventional construc- tion and mass customization.

summary This paper explains a method will be used during a workshop for constructing complex-curved geometry with quad edge panels. In this workshop, we demonstrate that quad-edge mesh data structure can efficiently be used to construct complex large shapes. With hands-on experiments, we will show a vast variety of shapes can be constructed using square, rectangular, parallelogram and extruded-line shaped panels. In addition, using a system we have recently developed to unfold polygonal mesh, we will demonstrate how desired shapes can be constructed by using laser-cut quadrilateral panels. This approach is particularly suitable to construct complicated sculptural and architectural shapes from anisotropic materials that can only be bended in one direction.

title Arabic Calligraphy and Parametric Architecture - Translation from a calligraphic force to an architectural form
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 469-482
summary This paper describes an on-going research that unites two distinct and seemingly unrelated interests. One is Arabic calligraphy and the other is parametric architecture. The effort is to integrate these interests and, in doing so, balance cultural issues with technological ones, traditional with contemporary and spiritual with material. Moreover, this paper is inspired by Arabic calligraphy and its influence on Zaha Hadid’s designs; it is invigorated by parametric systems and their capacity as a source of architectural forms. This paper will observe the rising importance of computation technologies to architecture, which has always been a form of negotiation between ‘function and fiction’ and ‘force and form’. The paper proposes a Parametric Calligraphic Machine that simultaneously produces, connects and separates calligraphic surfaces, calligraphic images and calligraphic reality. Therefore, the goal is to examine this hypothesis in order to produce a set of techniques, tools and methods that inform the three-dimensional design process of Arabic calligraphy’s contemporary possibilities by addressing a process description rather than a state description of creating calligraphic images and calligraphic surfaces. The theoretical approach highlights issues pertaining to calligraphy, spatiality, translation, generative systems, parametric design, visual structure, force and form.

title Multiflight - Creating Interactive Stairs through Positive Technology
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 295-308
summary This paper details a pedagogical project which calls for an improved design performance of the existing built environment through the use of smart technology and data-driven design. The project is an investigation into ways in which to improve the performance of a ‘pre-selected university building’ through the use of a media facade that allows for interactive experiences. Existing problems of the selected building have been identified through observation and research using a rich picture and agile approach. An underutilised staircase was selected as the focus site for a series of computational design and interactive design studies. The brief of this mini-research project aims to encourage more people to use the stairs and create a memorable experience with a technological approach through the application of a site specific interactive media installation. The project is an interactive staircase which utilises LED strips and generative sound. The project features a series of light boxes which are connected to the existing staircase balustrade. Arduino, passive infra-red sensors, and other motion detection sensors were used to allow for light and generative sound interaction with users using visual scripting tools and a generative design platform. Sensing technology was used as a real-time data-gathering device during the site analysis phase as well as an input device for the designed prototype to allow the testing of the data-driven design. This paper details the study and resultant interactive prototypes. It also discusses the exploration of performance based design ideas into design workflows and the integration of sensing tools into the design process. It concludes by identifying possible implications on using the Internet of Things concepts to facilitate the design of interactive architecture.

title Autopoietic Features of the Urban Body's Elements - Similarity studies on network elements' attributes
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 71-78
summary The methodology presented in this paper is grounded on the analysis and relational relocation of attributes of the urban body, deriving from the reconstruction of the urban body as a network configuration. In contrast to the hierarchical constructions, network constructions allow for multiple connections between elements, therefore being closer to the complexity of the associative forces found in the structure of the urban body.Similarity function is applied in an attempt to restructure those attributes of the urban body which emerge from the position of each element (node) in relation to other elements of the network and not from the Cartesian topology. Being able to represent material elements as nodes, counter-bodies deriving from autopoietic -network functions emerge, allowing for an inquiry in what concerns the autopoietic features of the urban body in general, focusing on the application of autopoietic functions which generate the urban body parts and components and on the multiplicity of elements' structure, in terms of association of crowds of elements and sets of attributes' values, aiming at the redefinition of proximity as similarity and of remoteness as difference.

title Data-Insight-Driven Project Delivery: Approach to Accelerated Project Delivery Using Data Analytics, Data Mining and Data Visualization
source ACADIA 2017: DISCIPLINES & DISRUPTION [Proceedings of the 37th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-96506-1] Cambridge, MA 2-4 November, 2017), pp. 102-109
summary Today, 98% of megaprojects face cost overruns or delays. The average cost increase is 80% and the average slippage is 20 months behind schedule (McKinsey 2015). It is becoming increasingly challenging to efficiently support the scale, complexity and ambition of these projects. Simultaneously, project data is being captured at growing rates. We continue to capture more data on a project than ever before. Total data captured back in 2009 in the construction industry reached over 51 petabytes, or 51 million gigabytes (Mckinsey 2016). It is becoming increasingly necessary to develop new ways to leverage our project data to better manage the complexity on our projects and allow the many stakeholders to make better more informed decisions. This paper focuses on utilizing advances in data mining, data analytics and data visualization as means to extract project information from massive datasets in a timely fashion to assist in making key informed decisions for project delivery. As part of this paper, we present an innovative new use of these technologies as applied to a large-scale infrastructural megaproject, to deliver a set of over 4,000 construction documents in a six-month period that has the potential to dramatically transform our industry and the way we deliver projects in the future. This paper describes a framework used to measure production performance as part of any project’s set of project controls for accelerated project delivery.
