title Interactive Multimedia Design: Operational Structures and Intuitive Environments for CD-ROM

summary This paper presents practical design concepts for the production of CD-ROMs or on-line media projects which are intended for scholastic and professional use. It is based on the experience and knowledge which has been gained while developing a multimedia package here at the Department of Architecture at CUHK. The package deals exclusively with the technical issue of vertical transportation in buildings, and is intended to be used as a design tool in professional offices, as well as in classroom settings. The required research and production for the development of the structures, formats, and interfaces of this project, along with the consequential evaluation and revision of this work, has led to a greater understanding of appropriate applications for interactive interactive multimedia designs. Specially, the paper addresses the fundamental issues of ‘user-format’, and a distinction is made between applications which operate as ‘tools’ and those which operate as ‘resources’. Descriptions are provided for both types of operational formats, and suggestions are made as to how one might decided which format would be appropriate for a specific project. Briefly, resource produces imply that a user actively pursues information in a relatively static environment, while tool procedures imply that a user works jointly with the software to process information and arrive at a unique output. This distinction between the two formats is mostly grounded in the design of the structure and user-interface, and thus the point is made that the material content of the application does not necessarily imply a mandatory use of either format. In light of this observation that an application’s format relies on the appropriateness of operational procedures, rather than on its material content, further discussions of the implications of such procedures (using a ‘resource’ vs. using a ‘tool’) are provided.

title Integrating Electronic Media into the Architecture Studio -A Teaching Development Grant at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
source CAADRIA ‘98 [Proceedings of The Third Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 4-907662-009] Osaka (Japan) 22-24 April 1998, pp. 31-38
summary Increasingly, architecture students and instructors are exposed to a widening array of softwares, hardwares, and strategies for the production and representation of architectural work. In an effort to promote the effective use of these tools within design education, instructors need to develop strategies for implementing them into the design studios. A teaching development grant which has been received by the Department of Architecture at CUHK is entitled Integrated Media Design Studio. This investigation involves multiple instructors, and levels of design studios. It provides an environment of a wide range of available equipment for producing, evaluating, documenting, and communicating architectural work in the studio. In addition to increasing the effective use of technology resources, and also raising the quality of studio instruction, this teaching development grant aims to create opportunities to further integrate other courses within the studio environment.
