title Design through Information Filtering. A search driven approach for developing a layperson's CAAD environment
source Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 0-7923-7023-6] Eindhoven, 8-11 July 2001, pp. 103-110
summary We propose a CAAD environment for non-designers. It is a new way to enable effective user participation during the design process. This CAAD environment contains an encapsulation of design knowledge and utilises information filtering as an interface to the design knowledge. Two prototypes are implemented as testbeds. So far, our experience has suggested that the approach has a promising future.

title Analogical Reasoning and Case Adaptation in Architectural Design: Computers Vs. Human Designers
source CAAD Futures 1997 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-7923-4726-9] München (Germany), 4-6 August 1997, pp. 787-800
summary This paper depicts the studies of the differences between human designers and computers in analogical reasoning and case adaptation. Four design experiments are undertaken to examine how designers conduct case-based design, apply dimensional and topological adaptation. The paper also examines the differences of case adaptation by novice and experienced designers, and between human judgement in case adaptation and the evaluation mechanism by providing similarity assessment. In conclusion, this study provides the comparative analysis from the above observation and implications on the development of case-based reasoning systems for designers.

title A Case-Based Decision Support System for Housing Refurbishment
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 2, pp. 288-299
summary Effective communication is a key for ensuring quality of housing refurbishment. This paper provides a framework of decision support system for housing refurbishment that helps designers better communicate with tenants who generally lack expert knowledge and can not express their needs clearly. The framework is constructed using Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) for retrieving past similar cases to meet the challenges and demands of the present refurbishment project at hand. With the help of the system, users can retrieve past cases that match the users’ requirements and revise them to meet current needs. It can also be used as design criteria for evaluating the final product to ensure its conformance with the initial planning. A test case is used to demonstrate the system’s suitability. The effectiveness of this system is supported by a post-experiment evaluation and interview with the tenant concerning his satisfaction on the refurbishment.

title What Is Intention Structure? - Represent Invisible Information of Spatial Depicts
source CAADRIA 2004 [Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] Seoul Korea 28-30 April 2004, pp. 275-286
summary The significant problem of this paper is how we convey spatial information to represent concrete meaning of mental imagery. For replying the above problem, we are developing a spatial information structure called "Intention Structure". Intention structure is used to represent some spatial experience of a particular person and awareness of the aura into some spatial depicts at that physical place. The meaning of “intention” is implied into a sequential relation when a navigator moves and gazes something in a place. This sequential relation can be described into two ways of spatial representation: one is the action of human body including “moving the body” and “moving the head”; another is converting the visual information into spatial memories through the behavior of gaze, including “the sight focus” and “the snapshot glance”. Otherwise, we also consider the limitation of topology at that physical place. Based on the above ideas, we use XML technologies in Java language to represent spatial data of intention structure for the describable usages of invisible information. we implemented this idea on a project of spatial analysis with Taiwanese traditional garden, the Lin family garden in Banciao, Taipei County, Taiwan.

title HOUSE SENSE: Designing smart houses with intelligent interface design
source CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 313-322
summary The research and development of smart houses are emergent because of the information and communication technological development and the search for better living quality from occupants. This paper therefore explores how smart technologies are applied into smart houses within the living context. Through a pilot study of cases and technological innovations to address the new living context by technology-interface-design strategies, a development framework of smart house is formed by three major elements, i.e. smart materials, technologies, and design. In order to actualize house senses, the prototype for smart houses is evolved. When space and wireless smart components are integrated, the living environment becomes more flexible and adaptable to accommodate or support activities digitally, and users can interact with space via context aware computing for acquiring and assimilating information in order to enhance their living experience.

title Case-based Representation and Adaptation in Design
source Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures: Education, Research, Applications [CAAD Futures ‘91 Conference Proceedings / ISBN 3-528-08821-4] Zürich (Switzerland), July 1991, pp. 301-312
summary By attempting to model the raw memory of experts, case-based reasoning is distinguished from traditional expert systems, which compile experts' knowledge into rules before new problems are given. A case-based reasoning system processes new problems with the most similar prior experiences available, and adapts the prior solutions to solve new problems. Case-based representation, of design knowledge utilizes the desirable features of the selected case as syntax rules to adapt the case to a new context. As a central issue of the paper, three types of adaptation aimed at topological modifications are described. The first type - casebased search - can be viewed as a localized search process. It follows the syntactical structure of the case to search for variations which provide the required functionality. Regarding the complexity of computation, it is recognized that when a context sensitive grammar is used to describe the desirable features, the search process become intractable. The second type of adaptation can be viewed as a process of self-organization, in which context-sensitive grammars play an essential role. Evaluations have to be simulated by local interaction among design primitives. The third type is called direct transduction. A case is translated directly to another structure according to its syntax by some translation functions. A direct transduction is not necessarily a composition of design operators and thus, a crosscontextual mapping is possible. As a perspective use of these adaptation methods, a CAD system which provides designers with the ability to modify the syntactical structure of a group of design elements, according to some concerned semantics, would support designers better than current CAD systems.

title A Layout Generation System for Elementary Schools

summary This paper describes a layout generation system that is realized by adapting the design problem formation and design process of the well-known SAR method. The purpose is to examine the idea that some certain types of design problems can be greatly simplified by conventional design techniques such as hierarchical decomposition, zoning, module, and most importantly, the concept of “support”, which is a spatial framework that dissects the planning site into sectors and zones of various spatial characteristics.

title Toward the integration of spatial and temporal information for Building Construction
source Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 0-7923-7023-6] Eindhoven, 8-11 July 2001, pp. 47-60
summary Building construction is a kind of complex process that integrates activities regarding design, materials, personnel and equipments. Information systems that describe building construction need to represent both the spatial information of the building design and the temporal information of construction plan. We classify four levels of integration for spatiotemporal information in building construction. We consider that the classification is important for the guidance of our research for that it distinguishes levels of complexity and applicability of data models that integrates spatiotemporal information. A prototype system is developed and tested for providing us a means to gain more insights to the problem.

title On the simulation of pedestrian behavior: A stochastic model based on Markov chain and information space
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 861- 874
summary Pedestrians move according to their internal states and the spatial information that they perceive at their locations. We use Markov chain to define the state transition of a pedestrian as a stochastic process, and the concept of cellular automata to simulate the way information disseminates in space. We have implemented an agent-based computer program to observe some emergent behaviors from the interactions between pedestrians and the information space they are surrounded. It is expected that the representational model can be used to assist designers in analyzing the relation between building plan and the circulation pattern.

title Spiritual ambiance in interactive temple
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 467-476
summary This paper introduces a new dimension of spiritual ambiance design using a real-world interactive temple design project. The research focus has shifted from users’ basic demands for physical design artifacts to the spiritual demands through embodied interaction. Thus, this study aims at enhancing the spiritual reflection in temple design through ambient media in interactive space. The objective of designing spiritual ambiance in temple is to develop a medium for taking the believers into religious contemplation and enhancing understanding of spirit of Bodhisattva Guan Yin. This research develops the design process of interactive space design with spiritual ambiance. Through the three design levels of emotional design principles, the design conceptual model of spiritual ambiance triggers resonances through metaphor association. To verify the conceptual model, the design concept is implemented in the physical space via human-centered embodied interaction. The on-site project not only introduces advanced sensing technology embedded into the temple but also verifies the applicability of human–computer interaction to a new dimension of spiritual ambiance design
