title Towards a Morphogenetic Control of Free-Form Surfaces for Designers
source Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures 2011 [Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures / ISBN 9782874561429] Liege (Belgium) 4-8 July 2011, pp. 165-180.
summary The present paper discusses a novel computational design strategy for approximating architectural free form geometry with discrete planar elements by using morphogenetic patterns. We report on an ongoing research project [1], which is focused on the design of flat ornamental tessellations by using computational geometry for the discretization of curved forms rather than manufacturing curvy elements, which typically increase cost. The significance of our approach lies in the fact that it allows the designer to progressively embrace the constructive constraints and their esthetic potential already in the design stage and to follow them through to actual fabrication.
keywords morphogenetic geometry, design strategies, user-interactiveness, design control, flat tessellations, ornamental structure.

title La Identificación de una Gramática Formal a través del Modelado Digital [Identification of a Shape Grammar through the Digital Modeling]
source SIGraDi 2011 [Proceedings of the 15th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Argentina - Santa Fe 16-18 November 2011, pp. 351-354
summary The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the use of digital modeling as identification instrument of a formal grammar. The identification is developed through the analysis of some furniture, in which it is used a formal grammar identification as a means to find out and generate a project language. This language construction is based on the grammar that generates forms which correspond to the same language, through the recursive application of a set of rules. Thus, the paper tries to identify a specific grammar for the furniture through its digital modeling.

title Immersion, interactivity and Non-Photorealistic: Analysis of a possibility for three-dimensional models of academic architectural projects
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 420-424.
summary This paper had as objective to propose a development method for a graphical representations with immersion, interactivity and non- photorealistic for use in the communication of academic architectural projects and which can be generated using the same digital models that students develop normally.

title Ornamental discretisation of free-form surfaces: Developing digital tools to integrate design rationalisation with the form finding process
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 347–356
summary The adoption of digital planning methods has given rise to an unprecedented formal freedom in architectural design. Free-form shapes enjoy considerable popularity in architectural production today. However, these shapes prove to be notoriously hard to fabricate. This paper reports on an ongoing research project investigating the approximation of continuous double-curved surfaces by discrete meshes consisting solely of planar facets, which can be constructed efficiently by using standardised, mass-produced building materials. We introduce our geometrical approach, which is based on the intersection of tangent planes to the surface, and present the digital tools we conceived to integrate the processes of design rationalisation and form-finding.

title Sewing timber panels: An innovative digitally supported joint system for self-supported timber plate structures
source Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Chennai 25-28 April 2012, pp. 213–222
summary This paper focuses on the joint system of flat panels as parts of a freeform building. This topic is a key area of the ongoing founded research project, in which we investigate nonstandard shapes, realized with standard building materials, namely cross-laminated timber (CLT). We use different discretization algorithms to overlay arbitrary freeform surfaces with ornaments consisting of polygonal flat panels. We investigate a series of ornaments and their discretization results on different surfaces. In this paper, we will present and discuss a new timber-to-timber joint system that we developed exclusively for this project. We discuss the results of the load tests that we performed recently and we take a look at the construction dependent requirements of the joint system concerning the tolerances and the geometry and also, how these constraints inform the digital process. As we will discuss throughout the paper, in earlier publications we described the form finding process and the geometrical guidelines for the discretization of a desired freeform building using ornamental flat patterns. This paper moves one step further as the digital becomes physical and it is closely related to building construction and the computational design outset.
