title Using WebGIS and Videoconferencing to SupportDistributed Concurrent Urban Planning WorkshopsA case supporting a collaborative community "Treasure MapCreation” workshop
source H.J.P. Timmermans, B. de Vries (eds.) 2008, Design & Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning, ISBN 978-90-6814-173-3, University of Technology Eindhoven, published on CD
summary This study focuses on an experimental method that employs the internet, WebGIS and videoconference systems to enable gathering and sharing of information from concurrently hosted multiple distributed participatory planning workshops. The method is expected to contribute to time, effort and economic savings while enabling greater grassroots participation as well as promoting the whole participatory planning process through more efficient information collection, sharing and updating. The authors present as a case study a distributed WS supported by videoconferencing and WebGIS systems reporting on the challenges and the implications for use in supporting participatory planning from the community scale to the larger scale regional planning levels are discussed.

title ASOM
source Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture, Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2014) / Kyoto 14-16 May 2014, pp. 117–126
summary Recently more researches on tangible objects have been conducted that enhance the intuitive polygonal or surface modelling of designers in digital and physical worlds. However, a few researches have been done that augment the digital solid modelling with tangible objects. In this paper, we present the Augmented Solid Modeller (ASoM) which helps designers create more complex shapes by a combination of Boolean operations between a different type of 3D-printed tangible objects, which is different from the conventional single shape type bottom-up modelling approaches. When multiple objects intersect each other at a given position and angle, the interference or removed shape is often unexpected for designers. Also, as 3D-printed objects are used for designers only to configure and discuss the shape of final digital 3D model in existing CAAD, ASoM changes the role of 3D-printed objects from the replicas to reusable tools for other modelling opportunities. We offered ASoM to students majoring or interested in CAAD and interviewed them to get comments. Since the speed and precision of 3D-printing will achieve immediate improvement, ASoM is a pioneer in developing cutting-edge approach for designers to model both in digital and physical worlds.

title Development of educational-use computational fluid dynamics programming environment and workshop
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 14 - no. 2, 119-130
summary In the current computer-aided architectural design education, students do not necessarily need to be taught to use more digital tools, but need to be introduced to the possibilities of designing their own digital tools. Designing the original tools with the assistance of educational-use environment for computational fluid dynamics programming improves the capability of the students to estimate the flows around architectures based on the mathematical background and the actual program. The authors have developed Educational Library for Fluid as an educational-use environment for computational fluid dynamics programming and ran the workshop where the students majoring in computer-aided architectural design tried to design computational fluid dynamics tools with Educational Library for Fluid. In this article, the details of Educational Library for Fluid and the results of the workshop are being reported. In addition, the key points of computational fluid dynamics education that the authors learned through the experience of the workshop are shared.

title SMAAD Surface: A tangible interface for smart material aided architectural design
source Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / The University of Newcastle, Australia 27-29 April 2011, pp. 355-364
summary In this paper, we present Smart Material Aided Architectural Design (SMAAD), the design technique to realize intuitive shape modelling with synchronizing a tangible user interface (TUI) and a 3D CAD system. To realize SMAAD, we first implemented SMAAD Surface, the TUI that imitates the free-form surface. The TUI is a fabric device, in which flex sensors and actuators (shape memory alloys) are embedded. As a designer changes the textile shape using his/her hands, its surface data will be sent to the CAD system through the sensor and a free-form surface can be created in the PC. The operation in the opposite direction is also possible, in which the CAD surface data is sent to the fabric device to dynamically change its shape. SMAAD releases architectural designers from complex GUI operations and visual programming and enables digital model creation through natural manual operations for physical models.
