title Robots: Automatización en Diseño y Construcción para la Enseñanza de Arquitectura [Robots: Automation in Design and Manufacturing for Teaching Architecture]
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. 439 - 443
summary Industrial robots controlled by parametric design software and visual programming environments are gaining popularity in the research and use of non-conventional construction processes in architecture. Process automation which can be personalized through variable components promises to become an industry standard with similar cost structures to current pre-fabrication industrial processes. In order to incorporate competencies from non-serial variable architectural modular design, an initial teaching initiative (Advanced Architectural Design Studio – USM) was developed in Latin América. The strategy employed is based on incorporating concepts and instruments of Construction & Design Automation for CAD/CAM processes with a Six Axis Robotic Arm (KUKA KR125/2).

title Parsimonious Models of Urban Space
source Predicting the Future [25th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-6-5] Frankfurt am Main (Germany) 26-29 September 2007, pp. 335-342
summary This paper sets out an approach to urban modelling derived from early work with cellular automata and agglomeration models. In these cases the models are an example of distributed representation, where the rules built in to the model are replicated in all the discrete components of the model be they cells or agents. This is the classic AI. / AL paradigm of emergent systems. The paper describes the main structure of the models, and presents examples of the use of this modelling process in design education, pointing out the way dynamic models allow mapping on to interesting speculations about the dynamic of the city, and its social systems. The paper ends with a report on the use of such models as a design decision support system and how they will be used in planned work in master planning in the London Thames gateway area under the UK govt. sustainable communities initiative.

title Impacto de la Visualización de Información e Interpretación de Gráficas de Herramientas de Simulación Energética en la Toma de Decisiones de Diseño [Impact of Information Visualization and Interpretation of Graphs Energy Simulation Tool in Design Decision-Making ]
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. 383 - 387
summary Simulation programs are an important tool to reduce building energy demands. However, there are difficulties that limit the use of these applications including the understanding and interpretation of the results. Due to the uncertainty regarding the reading and interpretation of results leading to design decisions, we propose a graphical display analysis, both scientific and information, charts, tables, diagrams, etc. Which apply to both energy simulation tools as complementary programs. It seeks to establish what tools have the greatest impact in the analysis process and how it influences the design decisions.

title An Interactive Poster System to Solicit Casual Design Feedback
source Silicon + Skin: Biological Processes and Computation, [Proceedings of the 28th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) / ISBN 978-0-9789463-4-0] Minneapolis 16-19 October 2008, 438-447
summary As part of a government funded grant in ubiquitous social computing, we have developed and deployed an interactive poster kiosk that invites casual feedback on student design work or other items of interest among peers in the School of Architecture. The system runs on a standard PC with a large LCD display and a touch-sensitive overlay. Posters reside in the system as web-page URIs. Passersby provide feedback on poster content by “finger painting” on the touch screen. The system e-mails the feedback to the poster provider. We have deployed the system in the Architecture Library for a period of three weeks. During that time, interaction with the kiosk passed through three general phases—unfamiliarity, novelty, and familiarity—with the peak interaction occurring during the middle phase. This paper describes the development and deployment of the system, the quantity and quality of the feedback it attracted, and concludes with recommendations for repeating and improving the exercise.

title Exporting the Studio Model of Learning
source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 509-516
summary We have conducted a series of interdisciplinary studios that partner students in the School of Architecture with peers in the College of Computing Sciences, with two principal goals: to foster creativity in the development of information technology, and conversely, to support creativity through information technology. Our studio project focuses on ubiquitous social computing as a topic of interest to both communities that requires their collaboration to realize a physical implementation. There are administrative as well as cultural hurdles in conducting such a studio. To assess the impact of the pedagogical approach, we employed qualitative observations as well as quantitative survey data. Best results depend on achieving a degree of parity in studio experience across disciplines.

title Geometria y Grafica Digital Como Reflexion y Racionalizacion Del Proyecto Arquitectonico (Geometry and Digital Graphics as Reflexion and Rationalization of the Architectural Project)
source II Seminario Iberoamericano de Grafico Digital [SIGRADI Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-97190-0-X] Mar del Plata (Argentina) 9-11 september 1998, pp. 280-285
summary The methodology of the work consists in the following: (a) Starting from the photographic image of an architectonic work (Santisimo Sacramento Church situated in 3451 Bv. OroÒo street, Rosario city, Santa Fe, Republica Argentina), and applying the rules of Descriptive Geometry. about photographic perspective, rebuild - restore the orthogonal parallel projection of its facade. (b) Once the restitution is done, introduce the information into the computer, in order to: Make a geometric analysis of the architectonic shape, applying 2D systems (bidimensional diedric or Monge method ) and 3D (tridimensional, wireframes and renders); Obtain a complete 3D image of the Tower, that means the virtual model of the real object.

summary In order to promote a sustainable design in building information modeling systems (BIM), it proposes a color-code to mark the volume and rooms according geometric relationships defined by parametric environmental simulations. For suggest the estimated performance of the building and sectors, and encourage design adjustments to reduce energy demands with proper comfort. This approach is applied to single housing in temperate-humid climate based on records and analysis carried on in Concepción, Chile. Like a visual aid for designers to improve environmental performance of buildings.
