title Design Education in the Virtual Studio
source The Virtual Studio [Proceedings of the 12th European Conference on Education in Computer Aided Architectural Design / ISBN 0-9523687-0-6] Glasgow (Scotland) 7-10 September 1994, pp. 152-160
summary The paper presents an approach to the re-orientation of computational studies in support of the didactic role of the design education program. A definition of computational design studies is proposed which identifies the transfer of explicit design knowledge as one of the functions of this academic field. The concept of design knowledge modeling is introduced as an important component of the knowledge formulation role of computational design studies. A current project is discussed which employs knowledge modeling in a VR system to develop an interactive design environment.

title The Application of Virtual Reality Systems in Architectural Design Processes
source BIT Note Publication 95/1, Building Information Technology, Eindhoven
summary This publication describes the development and the application of a Virtual Reality system for the architectural design process. It is based on the results of research into Virtual Reality technology and in particular into the possibilities of a natural interface between a designer and a design system. This description is also based on the development of a laboratory set up for a "full immersive" and a "partially immersive" Virtual Reality application. This application offers a designer the possibility of modifying and assessing a 3D design model in "Virtual Reality" and is used in the course of several case studies. One of these case studies was the making of a presentation of a house design to possibly interested parties. The other case study was the use of Virtual Reality in the course of a design process. Finally this publication includes the description of some future and anticipated developments. The research problem is mainly posed by the questions regarding the ways in which the design process changes under the influence of amongst other factors the Virtual Reality technology. Other questions concern the ways in which the interface between a designer and a design system can be made as natural as possible, the way in which a design model can behave as autonomous as possible, and the way in which a representation can be made as realistic as possible. With regard to these the starting points were respectively the use of sensors, the definition of behaviour characteristics and the use of illumination simulations.
