title Computation against design? Toward a new logicocentrism in architecture
source ACADIA 10: LIFE in:formation, On Responsive Information and Variations in Architecture [Proceedings of the 30th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-4507-3471-4] New York 21-24 October, 2010), pp. 49-52
summary The purpose of this paper is to make apparent critical and theoretical aspects of the instrumentation of new technologies inside architectural processes. After twenty five years of “Choral Work” between architecture and post-structuralist philosophy superimposed together inside architectural processes, we now face a new technological era which seems to provide a new figure of authority by replacing logocentrism to mathematical logicocentrism. Everywhere, the “insemination” of computer by biogenetic algorithms and codification processes transform matter into a zoocentric paradigmatic system, which is supposed, by its internal “modulation,” to extend our potential of social dynamics into space. The goal of our demonstration will then be to examine new technical and theoretical strategies, in a way that the positivistic structure of computation can avoid a totalizing effect (that leading architecture under technological domination), but open up to an un-programmable (emergent) future far above “weaving” and calculated design.

title Reflections about a Graphic and Applied Informatics in the career of Architecture [Reflexiones sobre una informática gráfica y aplicada en la formación del arquitecto]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 168-173
summary The Pedagogy for using Graphic and Applied Informatics in Architecture is not yet a “close question”. In this paper are presented the skills reached by developing undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The experiences submitted are based on the fusion and integration between the informatics sciences and the other matters. A further integration is claimed in the close future in order to obtain a major “intelligent use” of the technology. This is a new challenge for both, students and professors of Havana’s Faculty of Architecture. These experiences could help to others Schools and Faculties for improving their results in this topic.

title Emprendimiento de Componentes Constructivos Paramétricos [Entrepreneurship of Building Parametric Components]
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. 244 - 248
summary New technologies of parametric design and digital fabrication encourages development of building components, involving a new approach to architectural work and promote professional endeavors. This paper presents several experiences of recent graduates of architecture in U. Bio-Bio, Chile, which demonstrate these capabilities. The development of a roof module, a structural grid, a flexible envelope, cutting partitions and folded units for wind protection are examples of mass-customization, with implementation of new processes of design, construction and divulgation into the building industry.

title Estrategia Experimental para la Visualización de Datos Urbanos: Visualización, Análisis y Evaluación de Flujos Vehiculares & Transporte Público [Experimental Strategy for Urban Data Visualization: Visualization, Analysis and Evaluation of Vehicle & Transportation Flows]
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. 116 - 119
summary The distance between the data and conventional graphical representation (line graphs, pie, bar), subtraction urban context information impoverishing their reading and understanding of territory, therefore his chances of inference, which leads to the omission of information for lack of representation. The urban spatial referencing such data could accommodate a much more thorough examination of these to a deeper realization of Analysis, Diagnostics and Evaluations for the city and its transport system is, as this research focuses his gaze, looking promote the efficient functioning of this important player in the city urban. This research presents the early development of a 'Strategy for representing experimental urban data "and visualization, using a graphical editor graphics algorithmic " Grasshopper ", as well as investigate their impact and how these can glimpse useful criteria to consider in the implementation and urban design.

title Constructing the String Wall - Mapping the Material Process
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 326-335
summary The String Wall is the emergent product of a study on technological applications in architecture. Our team attempted to test the limits of the common partition wall construction, challenging the standard notion of the partition screen wall that recedes behind the structures, spaces and objects as a background condition. Such vibrant a partition as the SW becomes the center to the formation of the space it defines. The story of the SW could be described as the organic combination of the bow and the twist. The latent materiality and geometry of the bow and the twist as composite systems that are mined for their structural, tectonic and programmatic potential are tested prior to final construction by 3D printed scaled models. The SW is composed of successive frames that consist of vertical twisted strips of plywood attached to wooden beams. These frames emulate the stud elements of the conventional dry wall partition systems and are manufactured entirely manually. On the other hand, the use of CNC milling machine is employed for the production of the bowed plywood strips that fill in the frame. Three fluctuated curvatures produce strips that are combined rhythmically to produce the striated effect of the SW. The material is manipulated in order to expose its hidden side, the sequence of the multiple layers of the different infilling conditions. The oblique perspective of the SW is achieved through a novel geometric transparency, thus offering constantly changing views to a moving observer. The manipulation of the position of the component bowed and twisted strips explore the application of a see-through condition that escapes the norm and reveals the back to the front in a unique whole. The void of the screen wall becomes ultimately programmatic through the use of light. A sequence of halogen lights situated at the top and bottom of the in-between the wooden strips void create the dumbfounded effect of the SW experience.
