title Communication, Coordination and Collaboration: Media affordances and Team Performance in a Collaborative Design Environment
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 225-232

summary Advances in digital media are encouraging designers to adopt digital tools during early stages of design ideation as well as to facilitate collaboration in design teams. Collaborative environments for design teams should take into consideration both the multimodal nature of design representation as well as the complexity of team cognition. Collaborative tools that take a “black-box” approach often limit affordances for design ideation and collaboration. We describe here a collaborative environment that we put together using a kit-of-parts approach and underlying theoretical considerations. We also describe systematic usability evaluation of the collaborative environment by constraining select media affordances and qualitatively examining the impact on a team's design process. Preliminary findings were used to improve the environment and lay the groundwork for developing tele-collaborative environments.

title A Cyber-Enabled Collaborative Design Studio
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 7 - no. 2, 267-288
summary The research project investigates the use of a network-enabled platform involving a combination of technologies. As a preliminary report on a proof-of-concept design studio conducted in 2007 between Carleton University and Pennsylvania State University, the paper first describes the implementation of this network-centric collaborative design platform. The report articulates the “staging” of the conditions of possibility for a dynamic interplay between technological mediation and the reality of making, then compares the use of high bandwidth technology with customized symmetrical toolsets in the telecollaborative environment, versus commercial toolsets deployed over moderate bandwidth connections. In each setting, the collaborative environment is assessed according to issues encountered by students and design outcomes. The effectiveness of the digitally mediated collaborative studio is also gauged in terms of student reaction to the learning process via feedback surveys and questionnaires.

title Participation, Intersubjectivity, And Presence In a Digitally Mediated Workspace: A Participatory Design Studio between Pennsylvania State University and Carleton University
source CAADRIA 2008 [Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Chiang Mai (Thailand) 9-12 April 2008, pp. 364-370
summary A paradigm shift in the world of architecture brought by the recent developments in visualization and communication technology not only offers us drastically different ways to collaborate, but also questions traditional location dependent collaborations. This new technology offers us new possibilities for a more phenomenologically rich mode of creative activity and participation. The goal of the Participatory Design Studio was to allow architecture students in multiple locations to collaborate in real-time by sharing computational resources, geometric datasets, and multimedia content including high-definition video. The technologies involved in this research include the National LambdaRail (layer 3, PacketNet with 1Gb/s connection) and CA*net 4 (Canadian broadband layer 2 with 10gb/s lightpath connectivity) allowing Standard Definition videoconference, utilization of Deep Computing Visualization, Remote Visual Networking (RVN) and Web Service access and control of the APN devices through the dashboard solution that makes integration seamless to the workflow and transparent to the user.

title Quest for Efficiency: Examining Cognitive Processes Underlying the Use of 3D Modeling Tools
source Stouffs, Rudi and Sariyildiz, Sevil (eds.), Computation and Performance – Proceedings of the 31st eCAADe Conference – Volume 1, Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, 18-20 September 2013, pp. 101-107

summary In this paper we examine the strategies used in 3D modeling for their efficiency. Our study explores the underlying cognitive process that drives design thinking as well the choice of strategies for using specific features in a given CAD software. We take a cognitive task analysis approach to examine our question. Of a total sample of 19 participants, the strategies of the fastest and slowest users are compared to identify areas of improvement for software development as well as user training.

title Remote Studio Site Experiences: Investigating the Potential to Develop the Immersive Site Visit
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 421-430
summary Immersive technologies are now enabling better and more affordable immersive experiences, offering the opportunity to revisit their use in the architectural and landscape studio to gain site information. Considering when travel to a site is limited or not possible, immersive experiences can help with conveying site information by overcoming issues faced in earlier virtual studios. We focused on developing three applications to understand the workflow for incorporating site information to generate an immersive site experience. The applications were implemented in a semester-long joint architecture and landscape architecture studio focused on remotely designing for the Santa Marta informal settlement in Rio, Brazil. Preliminary results of implementing the applications indicate a positive outlook towards using immersive experiences for site information particularly when a site is remote.

title Understanding the genesis of form in Brazilian informal settlements: modelling the environment as a preliminary approach to design
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 552-559
summary This work is part of a larger research that proposes an alternative approach to housing for low-income people, based on the model of Brazilian favelas, with the goal of generating housing solutions that are more adapted to physical conditions, affordable, and spatially rich. This paper presents how the favela Santa Marta (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) was modeled through three types of models: digital, immersive and computational/ analytic model. The argument is that by using a more holistic modelling, it is possible to gain a deeper understanding of the genesis and formal structure of informal settlements and develop better approaches for tackling related challenges.
