summary Natural surveillance is one key factor proposed, in the approach to decrease fear of crime. Building fenestrations and outdoor spaces like terrace, balconies and verandas that extend the interior spaces and the indoor activities, beyond the closed external shell of the buildings, are proposed by CPTED, in their place specific policy guidelines, to help design out fear and crime. In this background, this study on natural surveillance opportunities, explores typological variations of these component outdoor spaces of buildings, in line with variations in size and location. The affordances considered for this study specifically focus on the ways in which these spaces structure the visual fields for the external observer. This paper thus reports the survey of visual preferences exploring the spatial affordances of building spaces and their association with fear of crime.

title Emergent Form from Structural Optimisation of the Voronoi Polyhedra Structure
source Proceedings of the Generative Arts conference, Milan, 2007
summary In the course of the exploration of computational means in the architectural design process, in order to investigate more complex, adaptive geometries, the Voronoi diagram has recently gained some attention, being a three-dimensional space-filling structure which is modular but not repetitive. The project looks at the Voronoi diagram as a load-bearing structure, and whether it can be useful for structural optimisation. Hereby the edges of the Voronoi polyhedra are regarded as structural members of a statical system, which then is assessed by structural analysis software. Results seem to indicate that the Voronoi approach produces a very specific structural as well as spatial type of order. Through the dislocation of the Voronoi cells, the statical structure becomes more complex through emergent topology changes, and the initially simple spatial system becomes much more complex thorough emerging adjacencies and interconnections between spaces. The characteristics of the emerging form, however, lie rather in the complexity how shifted spaces and parts are fitted together, than in a radical overall emergent geometry. Spatially as well as a structurally, the form moves from a simple modular repetitive system towards a more complex adaptive one, with interconnected parts which cannot stand alone but rather form an organic whole.

title Computational Color Design Process Towards Aesthetic Community Revitalization
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 677-686
summary This study describes the digital color design process using emotional words. The design process proposed in this paper consists of three steps: color scheme selection, color arrangement, and design evaluation. The application of the color design process is to design the landscape of the village. It is much more complicated to assign colors to already existing buildings in a village than to a single building. The originality of this study is that the design process suggests a solution to solve this complex color design problem using numerical evaluation of the generated design. A case study was developed to show the potential of the proposed digital color design process. Through the case study, the utility and potential of the digital design process were demonstrated.

title Tangible and Intangible Digital Heritage - Creating Virtual Environments to Engage Public Interpretation
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 225-232
summary This research developed an immersive, multi-dimensional Virtual Experience of the 'Gordon Wilson Flats', a Modern apartment block constructed during the 1950s in Wellington, New Zealand. The project explored methods to virtually reconstruct the spatial qualities of the building and document the flats in both their current and original states within the context of Wellington City. This digital heritage project documents both the tangible and intangible characteristics of the building to inform public discussion focused upon the flats. This approach was in an effort to capture the effect of time on the buildings tangible elements, and with the addition of oral histories, develop a narrative which is intended to facilitate architectural understanding and heighten engagement within the immersive virtual environment. This paper presents a digital methodology for the creation of a digital heritage experience with the purpose of engaging and informing public discussion.
