title Digital design and manufacture based on Chiloean boats
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 6 - no. 3, pp. 317-333
summary This paper proposes a design methodology for the manufacture of complex, double-curved surfaces based on the digital reconstruction of traditional structural and constructive elements of Chiloean boats. It also suggests a beneficial association between digital design and CAD CAM for manufacture using locally crafted construction techniques. The incorporation of innovated contemporary digital design and fabrication tools into traditional construction systems, aims to optimize and perpetuate traditional artisanal craft construction of complex shapes developed in the south of Chile. The importance of this research in budget-restricted economies, lies in the possibility of applying local construction and assembly techniques to new sophisticated designs that may satisfy the country's architectural needs. Scale models are used to record the design process and constructive development while information flow charts document the design methodology for the construction of complex geometries.

title World8: International working group for new virtual reality applications in architecture
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 547- 556
summary This paper introduces the activities of World8, an international working group on virtual reality, and demonstrates the group’s developed VR applications in architecture. Group members come from eight universities around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Chile, Canada, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates. The main objective is to develop a research framework for collaboration between architectural schools and a software developing company. Specifically, the group is looking to create new applications for VR visualizations of urban settings with dynamic agents such as human and vehicular traffic. Models developed by these members are explained, and the project is reviewed based on survey results.

title New Territories: The digital model as a shape-laboratory in architectural education
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 264-269
summary New digital technologies allow architecture students to explore architectural shape freed of many of the formal and physical constraints implicit in traditional analog representation technologies. We believe that this will allow for a greater understanding of the origin of architectural form and the emergence of new project methodologies, informed by current day developments in digital art and visualization systems. Ultimately, the new generation of architects should be able to select, adapt and create digital tools that allow them to process, manipulate and give form to wide-ranging and complex data sets.

title Parametric urban simulation: digital modeling system for building codes
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 591-596
summary Urban building codes include a series of abstract geometric and mathematical prescriptions whose final built result is not easily visualized by non-technical users. This makes an informed public debate about the proposed regulations difficult and leaves the final definition of the exact ratios and formulas in the hands of local governments’ technical consultants. Even these experts usually have only gross numerical approximations, photomontages and other non-rigorous representations of the final built environment on which to base their decisions. We propose a system which, taking as its inputs the roads and lots of the area under consideration, as well as the proposed building codes, generates a detailed three dimensional model that gives neighbors, users and authorities’ access to a common, objective preview of the foreseeable result of the codes under consideration. We believe this will lead to a greater transparency and participation in building code definition and approval processes. [Full paper in Spanish]

title Modular Flow; Hard on parametrics
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary The design and fabrication of an exhibition display project was taken as an opportunity to explore parametric design with a group of students in Chile. This article presents the experience of a design studio workshop exercise by addressing the introduction of parametric design principles and the development of a built academic project through a team based design and fabrication process. The strategy followed by the team was to utilize parametric models as a mean to materialize driving variables of the project into unexpected geometries to be deployed in different public spaces in Santiago. Context, time scale and available technology resulted in a non-obvious combination of advanced digital design and fabrication techniques and low-cost mass-produced materials.

source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 587-592
summary This paper relates the experience of the author in finding digital tools to generate diversity of results in the design process of one project, aiming to generate base tools developed in the form of script codes, that may operate in diverse fields of action reacting to the diverse variables characteristics of each place, The development of the script is what allows this to happen.

title Architecture of Structural Membrane in Chile
source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 593-600
summary The present paper deals with the theoretical and technical reflection on basic structural principles that allow the generation and controlling of architectural complexity of double curvature surfaces.Despite the difficulties in designing and building such complex forms, Chile has several examples that were developed and built during the first half of the twentieth century. All of them were developed with local building technologies which studied the implementation of experimental and simple materials with innovative mounting techniques. All of them explored new structural concepts generating great interest of architectural spaces for religious cult, housing and civil works. The research objective of this work deals with the recognition and analysis with contemporary modelling and simulation tools that can reveal the type of relationship that occurs between the initial conception of the architectural shape and membranous structural surfaces. Their curvature and sleekness generated innovative structural spaces that contain an architectural envelope with clear and revealing expression of the acting forces.

summary In order to promote a sustainable design in building information modeling systems (BIM), it proposes a color-code to mark the volume and rooms according geometric relationships defined by parametric environmental simulations. For suggest the estimated performance of the building and sectors, and encourage design adjustments to reduce energy demands with proper comfort. This approach is applied to single housing in temperate-humid climate based on records and analysis carried on in Concepción, Chile. Like a visual aid for designers to improve environmental performance of buildings.
