title Civic Media Platforms and Participatory Urbanism: A Critical Reflection
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 10 - no. 2, 253-274
summary In this paper, we explicate our research on technology-mediated urban experience specific to two hyper-local tests in which the space of the ‘public’ is transformed into a virtual network by connective broadcasting. The first case study presents collective mapping in Rio de Janeiro toward increased civic engagement and sustainability, the second tests documentation of political demonstrations for strategic and archival purposes for Occupy Boston. Grouped under the term “participatory urbanism,” the projects intend to explore how an individual activates interstitial space (between the physical city and hovering networks, between public and private) by engaging technology and civic media to affect change in the built environment. The physical and virtual environments serve as reciprocal sources of information, engendering a collective practice of shared encounters. We investigate how such encounters of user-centered activity through mobile and web-based media support or implicate the perception and manipulation of the built environment over spans of time and locations, and will highlight qualitative elements of a mobile and web platform designed for successful civic engagement and participatory urbanism.

title Responsive Architectures
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. 335-344
summary Real-time supply of computational power into built environments enables to re-address questions of user experience, comfort and building performance. This presentation discusses the features of responsive architecture through the example of a ‘programmable window’ that was designed and deployed in a prototype house, in Trento, N. Italy. In the example the parts and functionalities of building skins were revisited, to integrate advances in electroactive materials, information communication technologies and control systems engineering.

title Using Computational Fluid Dynamics to Assess Natural Airflow in a Prototype House-Interior
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. 373 - 377
summary This paper presents an airflow study with Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) software that was used to model the natural ventilation attributes at the interior of a prototype house. This study informed the design development phase of the house and guided the design of a dynamic curtain wall involving a matrix of 3 x 9 openable windows for its south façade. Alternative ways of modeling the building geometry were employed and different possible states of the house were examined to determine how change in the orientation and the basic dimensions of the envelope, and modifications in the number, distribution and angle of the open windows affect natural ventilation.

title Designing Synchronous Interactions for the Fenestration System of a Prototype Sustainable Dwelling
source Digital Crafting [7th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2014 / ISBN 978-603-90142-5-6], Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), 31 March - 3 April 2014, pp. 291-301
summary This paper presents an interactive fenestration system designed for the principal façade of a prototype sustainable dwelling. The system attains autonomous, responsive and interactive modes of operation, and is able to provide synchronous response to a wide variety of environmental conditions and user needs. The method to address the design of the system was to integrate electro-active materials and real time sensing and control technologies. The test was to implement a full-scale façade with the abovementioned capabilities. This presentation discusses the features, technologies and reasoning followed in the design and implementation of the façade.

title Designing A Connected Sustainable Living Environment
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 11 - no. 2, 183-204
summary This paper presents the design and development of a prototype, connected to a sustainable home project, which is at its final stage of implementation in Trento, N. Italy. The paper specifically focuses on the design ends and the technological means deployed in the process of implementing the prototype. Design ends outline the technical premises underpinning the development of the house systems. Technological means refer to the methods and technologies that had been deployed to satisfy the premises. Emphasis is given to the properties of the reconfigurable façade and the autonomous control system of the house, where variable transmittance materials, AI methods for building control and digital simulation are used in combination.

summary The paper presents how the latest advances in autonomous building management and electrically activated materials affect the design, production, and operation of residential buildings. The innovative features of an elementary prototype house, which is at the fi nal stage of construction in Trento, N. Italy, are discussed with a view to expose the opportunities and the problems that these new technological developments pose to design research.

title Designing an Interactive Architectural Element for a Responsive House
source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 369-372
summary This paper presents the features and the reasoning followed in the process of designing a programmable architectural element for a prototype house – a interactive façade involving a matrix of programmable windows. The façade contributes to the precise adjustment of view, airflow, solar radiation, and heat, by allowing the automated modification of the chromatism, the angle and the light transmittance of each individual window.
