title Polytrim: Collaborative Setting for Environmental Design
source Sixth International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 9971-62-423-0] Singapore, 24-26 September 1995, pp. 647-658
summary This paper begins with a review of the structuring values and questions the Centre for Landscape Research (CLR) is interested in answering with its testbed software system Polytrim (and its derivatives; CLRview, CLRpaint, CLRmosaic available via anonymous ftp over the internet). The mid section of the paper serves as a guide to Polytrim's structure and implementation issues. Some of the most enduring and significant principles learned from Polytrim's use over the last six years of use in research, teaching and professional practice are introduced. The paper will end with an overview of characteristics that we believe our next generation of software should achieve. The CLR's digital library on the World-Wide Web provides an extensive Set of illustrations and detailed descriptions of the ideas and figures presented in this paper. Endnotes provide specific internet addresses for those that wish to read, see or use the system.

title Dynamic Data Sets as Collaboration in Urban Design
source Sixth International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 9971-62-423-0] Singapore, 24-26 September 1995, pp. 709-718
summary Computer applications to urban design involve a distinctively rich hybrid of geometric, geographic, and annotative information. This condition raises opportunities for collaboration, needs for data integration, and examples of the increasing importance of rich datasets as a basis for design work. This paper describes these general issues, provides substantive examples from recent studio work, and demonstrates a specific implementation of software integration. The latter includes a prototypical data interface, translation tables for multimedia linkage, and capacity to work together with a web browser.

title Onsite Robotic Fabrication for Flexible Workspaces - Towards Design and Robotic Fabrication of an Integrated Responsive Ceiling System for A Workspace Environment
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 59-68
summary Open, flexible workspaces were introduced decades ago, but architectural design approaches to ceiling systems have not changed substantially. This paper discusses the development of strategies and prototypes for a lightweight, integrated ceiling structure that is robotically woven. Through geometrically complex, fibre-reinforced building elements that are produced onsite, a new distribution system for data and light can be provided and support individual and multi-group collaborations in an contemporary open-plan office for maximum flexibility. The paper introduces applied design research with case studies that test robotic weaving on an architectural ceiling. The second part contextualises the presented work by linking it to workspace scenarios and an on-site robotic process with a resulting data distribution that is designed to produce degrees of freedom for high flexibility in use, allowing occupants to organise the workspace layout autonomously so that workflow constellations in different teams can be adequately expressed through space. The paper concludes with a discussion of a framework for robotic methods developed for the carbon-fibre overhead weaving processes, followed by conclusions and outlook towards future potentials.

title Computational Issues in Urban Design: Developing a Strategy for Solar Impact Assessment
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 543-555
summary A comprehensive method for identifying the impacts on solar access of large scale architectural projects still continues to be an important and controversial area in city planning and urban design. Previous research studies such as the Sun Wind and Pedestrian Comfort, a study of Toronto's Central Area, demonstrated approaches possible when dealing with solar issues related to urban design. Existing techniques for solar inventory, analysis and evaluation, while effective, are often dependent on single event analysis (shadow casting) or manual procedures that are time consuming and exceedingly complex especially when needed for day-to-day use by planners or architects involved in complex urban projects. The Centre for Landscape Research has undertaken as part of its research to develop a computational approach that would help city urban designers evaluate and represent the issues of solar access in an urban setting. This paper will outline a series of computational methods developed to utilize an existing municipal digital data base and to describe complex issues of solar access in terms of urban form and context. A technique will be described that quantitatively assesses the total solar potential of a site as compared to changes in solar access due to different urban design proposals. Two-, three- and four-dimensional representation techniques are developed to facilitate understanding of the analysis to users such as city officials, the public, developers, etc.
