title A Digital Design Environment for Large- Scale Rapid Manufacturing
source ACADIA 09: reForm( ) - Building a Better Tomorrow [Proceedings of the 29th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-9842705-0-7] Chicago (Illinois) 22-25 October, 2009), pp. 201-208
summary Innovation in architectural design often follows technological innovation. This innovation can often be related to advances in construction techniques or design tools. This paper focuses on the development of a digital design environment for a new manufacturing process that can produce large architectural components. The design environment can be customized so that it incorporates both the flexibility and the constraints of the construction technology, such that the components produced maximize the core concept of the technology. Rapid Prototyping is a mature technology that has been around for 25 years in the manufacturing and product design industries. It is used primarily to speed up the product design cycle time from concept to physical realization for evaluation; it is now gaining a foothold in contemporary architectural practice. A number of protagonists are taking the Rapid Prototyping concept a stage further by developing large-scale processes capable of printing architectural components; there are even claims of the ability to produce whole buildings. These processes will give the architect a new palette of choice in terms of component design, and promise similar levels of geometric freedom as the Rapid Prototyping counterparts.

title Arquitectura modular basada en la Teoría de los Policubos [Modular architecture based on the Theory of Polycubes]
source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 477-481
summary This paper analyzes the theory of polycubes from the basic unit the cube, until the formation of more complex shapes, understanding the assembly and operation of polycube parts, is part of the use of theory in architectural projects, determining the cubic module (dimensions) and its combination aspect. Relates modulation with numerical series for the distribution and creation of environments. In the end establishes two design methodologies based on the theory, that it will work in a ludic way and culminate in housing prototypes.

title Comparative analyses of use of different digital media in architectural design process [Análise Comparativa do Uso de Diversas Mídias Digitais no Desenvolvimento do Projeto Arquitetônico]
source SIGraDi 2007 - [Proceedings of the 11th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] México D.F. - México 23-25 October 2007, pp. 177-181
summary This paper discusses a class experience that investigates the design process using different digital media. The objective is comparing the advantages e disadvantages in different architectural design stage of three different computer graphics software: Sketch up, AutoCAD e ArchiCAD. At first an initial design process of three groups of individuals is carried out. In the next step, specialization on computer graphics software, time spent in design, graphics quality, design quality and the level of computer graphics tools thought as aids to architectural design are investigated. The results indicate the importance to choose different computer graphics to different design problem.

summary The general thematic of our work tackles the question of the generative design tool efficiency to stimulate a creative architectural conception in the context of sustainable development. We focus our point of view on the conceptual research phases. We would like to characterise the human creative mechanisms in a situation of generative assistance where digital tool reveals some degree of autonomy and incorporates environmental constraints. Thus, we implement an evolutionary design tool in which energetic performances of the analogon are used in order to orient the evolution. Our tool is based on an interactive genetic algorithm that ensures both a broad exploration of the solutions space and the subjective user preferences accounting. Users groups were confronted to the tool in a conception situation and creativity was evaluated and characterized.

title Geoinclus?o: Sistemas de Informaç?o Geográfica e Crowdthinking [Geoinclusion: Geographical Information Systems and Crowdthinking]
source SIGraDi 2016 [Proceedings of the 20th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-7051-86-1] Argentina, Buenos Aires 9 - 11 November 2016, pp.471-475
summary This article aims to disseminate the concept of "geoinclusion" for the iberoamerican scientific community. This concept was created in 2007 by the ‘GIS Laboratory’ of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) to operationalize the "crowdthinking" through Geographic Information Systems (specially the web and mobile versions). Ever since, it was tested by educational, health, safety and environment sectors and the result was the creation and continuous improvement of the web plataform VICON.SAGA. The paper will demonstrate its four fundamental principles of knowledge construction: decentralization, authenticity, integration and resilience.

title Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing at Foster + Partners

summary Over the last 15 years, rapid prototyping has been an integral part of the design process in the car and aerospace industry (Brad Fox 2006). Recently the architecture profession has started to use these techniques in its design process (Greg Corke 2006), and some architecture schools have begun experimenting with these technologies. ¶ Foster + Partners have been one of the first architecture practices to fully integrate rapid prototyping within its design process. The technology was initially seen as a sketch model making tool in the early stages of the design, in particular for projects with complicated geometries. It surpassed this purpose within a year and it is now seen an essential design tool for many projects and in for many project stages. The office’s rapid prototyping department now produces about 3500 models a year. ¶ Besides, or perhaps because of, rapid prototyping, Foster + Partners have started to experiment with rapid manufacturing. This first was done through the design and manufacture of a Christmas tree for the charity organisation Save the Children.

title Apprendre des machines

summary Nous qui devons enseigner à nos élèves les techniques du dessin traditionnel avons trop souvent recours à des recettes et normes mnémotechniques venues des ateliers et studios d'art traditionnels. De telles stratégies, souvent personnelles et intransférables, s'appuyant sur de longues heures de pratique, sont difficilement assimilables pour des élèves qui ne disposent pas de tant de temps pour s'entraîner, ni d'une telle expérience perceptive; dans le meilleur des cas, il en résulte un dessin stéréotypé ou, s'il est brillant, c'est que l'élève savait déjà dessiner. Comme nous considérons que le dessin traditionnel et le CAD sont les deux outils fondamentaux qui permettent à tout architecte d'exprimer ses idées, il nous a semblé opportun de chercher les points communs entre ces deux disciplines. Dans un discours illustré de dessins d'auteurs divers, nous essaierons de démontrer comment, si nous utilisons exactement les mêmes critères que ceux qui régissent un ordinateur dans l'interprétation de ce qu'il voit, le résultat de la représentation est pleinement expressif et efficace. Si nous sommes capables de rationaliser cette méthodologie et de la transmettre à nos élèves, nous aurons répondu à notre double objectif: leur enseigner à dessiner par des techniques traditionnelles, dûment rationalisées et comprendre un peu mieux le fonctionnement des ordinateurs.

title Future Traditions. Rethinking Traditions and Envisioning the Future of Architecture Through the Use of Digital Technologies
source 1st eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings [ISBN 978-989-8527-03-5], University of Porto, Faculty of Architecture (Portugal), 4-5 April 2013, 250p.
summary The debate around the impact of digital technologies in architecture is usually centered on the discovery of new possibilities for the discipline. However, the past and traditions can also play an important role in the future of architecture. After 50 years of technological assimilation, architects have today the necessary distance to embrace a critical reflection about how computers support the dynamics of continuity or rupture in the discipline. Thus, to understand how digital technologies can contribute to rethink traditions and to inspire the future of architecture became the main goal of the 1st eCAADe Regional International Workshop dedicated to the theme of “Future Traditions”, hosted by the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto, Portugal.

title Symmetry-Based Generative Design: A Teaching Experiment
source Open Systems: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2013) / Singapore 15-18 May 2013, pp. 303-312
summary Throughout history, symmetry has been widely explored as a geometric strategy to conceive architectural forms and spaces. Nonetheless, its concept has changed and expanded overtime, and its design exploration does not mean anymore the generation of simple and predictable solutions. By framing in history this idea, the present paper discusses the relevance of exploring symmetry in architectural design today, by means of computational design and fabrication processes. It confirms the emergence of a renewed interest in the topic based on two main ideas: On the one hand, symmetry-based design supports the generation of unique and apparent complex solutions out of simple geometric rules, in a bottom-up fashion. On the other hand, despite this intricacy, it assures modularity in the design components, which can bring benefits at the construction level. As the background for testing and illustrating its theoretical arguments, this paper describes the work produced in the Constructive Geometry course at FAUP.

title Robotic Fabrication in Architectural Education: An Experience on the Design and Construction of Brick Structures
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 143-147.
summary In the last decade, architectural researchers have demonstrated the potential of using robots to design and construct in novel ways. However, the integration of such practices in architectural education has been difficult and the examples are rare. By analyzing this context, this paper describes a teaching experience at FAUP where robotic technologies were introduced to the Master students for the first time. The assignment consisted in the production of a brick structure and ended up with the construction of a 1:1 scale installation. With this experience, this paper wants to contribute for the dissemination of robotic technologies in architectural curriculums.
