title Relevamiento con drones; el caso Real de San Carlos [Drone mapping; case study: Real de San Carlos]
source SiGraDi 2014 [Proceedings of the 18th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-9974-99-655-7] Uruguay - Montevideo 12 - 14 November 2014, pp. 649-652
summary Cultural landscapes, although complex realities, give shape and meaning to the tangible and intangible components which form the foundations of human cultural background. The architecture of the city of Colonia del Sacramento fits within this context, and builds up a unique cultural landscape inserted in the logic of the historical heritage protection system. This concept, which implies wealth but also conflicts, demands a multidisciplinary approach grounded on a wide vision of this issue. Likewise, this comprehensive approach contributes to reverse and correct the lack of capacity and/or interest to save these examples of man-made landscape (prefabrication, mega-projects of the beginnings of the 20th Century, etc.), which are essential pieces of heritage conservation. Since 1943 the bullring is owned by the Municipality of Colonia. In the last decade the building was fenced to prevent breakdown risk. Still, illegal access occurs quite easily, increasing the risk and potential damage, in addition to the spoilage caused by more than one hundred years of inactivity and lack of maintenance. This paper proposes a method to survey and record the current status of the building, from photos taken by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV, drones), allowing the registry without the need of direct access to the site. The survey will enable three types of results: series of mapped photographs, 3D models and an interactive platform for aerial view. The aim is to provide valuable and essential documentation for next stages of consolidation works, competitions and eventualy, new uses of the heritage building.

title Restitución perspectiva mediante el uso de herramientas digitales para la confección deuna base de datos de obras arquitectónicas - (Perspective Restitution by means of the use of Digital Tools for the Preparation of a Data Base of Architectonic Works)
source SIGraDi’2000 - Construindo (n)o espacio digital (constructing the digital Space) [4th SIGRADI Conference Proceedings / ISBN 85-88027-02-X] Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) 25-28 september 2000, pp. 188-190
summary The work is developed applying the perspective restitution method, based on the photographic survey of buildings. It researches the accuracy selection of the instruments, that should be effective, easy to manage, low cost and it allow fast results so as to let us compile a digital graphic data bases of the chosen works. The aim of the project is to elaborate graphic documents not only from the paradigmatic works but also from domestic architecture, so important in the consolidation of city. The idea is to include new concepts about the use of digital devices and instruments. The emphasis is on the production of a low cost graphic documents, obtained with standard hardware and software used at our University. The architectural works selected belongs to the Rosario’s Rationalist heritage that have to be completed at the Municipal Archive.

title Introductory Computer Programming as a Means for Extending Spatial and Temporal Understanding
source Eternity, Infinity and Virtuality in Architecture [Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture / 1-880250-09-8] Washington D.C. 19-22 October 2000, pp. 129-135
summary Should computer programming be taught within schools of architecture? Incorporating even low-level computer programming within architectural education curricula is a matter of debate but we have found it useful to do so for two reasons: as an introduction or at least a consolidation of the realm of descriptive geometry and in providing an environment for experimenting in morphological time-based change. Mathematics and descriptive geometry formed a significant proportion of architectural education until the end of the 19th century. This proportion has declined in contemporary curricula, possibly at some cost for despite major advances in automated manufacture, Cartesian measurement is still the principal ‘language’ with which to describe building for construction purposes. When computer programming is used as a platform for instruction in logic and spatial representation, the waning interest in mathematics as a basis for spatial description can be readdressed using a left-field approach. Students gain insights into topology, Cartesian space and morphology through programmatic form finding, as opposed to through direct manipulation. In this context, it matters to the architect-programmer how the program operates more than what it does. This paper describes an assignment where students are given a figurative conceptual space comprising the three Cartesian axes with a cube at its centre. Six Phileban solids mark the Cartesian axial limits to the space. Any point in this space represents a hybrid of one, two or three transformations from the central cube towards the various Phileban solids. Students are asked to predict the topological and morphological outcomes of the operations. Through programming, they become aware of morphogenesis and hybridisation. Here we articulate the hypothesis above and report on the outcome from a student group, whose work reveals wider learning opportunities for architecture students in computer programming than conventionally assumed.

title From TSL survey to HBIM, issues on survey and information modeling implementation for the built heritage - The case study of the Temple di Bacco Ravello
source Fioravanti, A, Cursi, S, Elahmar, S, Gargaro, S, Loffreda, G, Novembri, G, Trento, A (eds.), ShoCK! - Sharing Computational Knowledge! - Proceedings of the 35th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, 20-22 September 2017, pp. 39-48
summary The research presents an application of HBIM to the recovery process and design, which allows to highlight some potentialities and criticalities of what has become an important instrument in the documentation and conservation of architectural heritage. The object of the research is the Temple di Bacco, built by Lord Girmthorpe as his final resting place and located within the gardens of Villa Cimbrone, Ravello (SA).The survey has presented several difficulties due to the particular configuration of the site, very steep, with very limited space around the object. If on the one hand the TLS obvious to the lack of edges of cylindrical objects, on the other hand it poses problems for the tangency of the scan points. The Scan to BIM methodology has proven to be effective and has allowed to overcome the difficulties associated with the conformation of the artefact and of the site, in the study of the analyzed object. In conclusion, some assessments and results are reported, aimed at sharing and defining strategies and methodologies of scientific validity regarding the application of the HBIM model to a process of recovery and consolidation of an existing building object.

title Thinking Soils: A synthetic biology approach to material-based design computation
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 460-469
summary The paper details the computational modelling work to define a new type of responsive material system based on genetically engineered bacteria cells. We introduce the discipline of synthetic biology and show how it may be possible to program a cell to respond genetically to inputs from its environment. We propose a system of synthetic biocementing, where engineered cells, living within a soil matrix, respond to pore pressure changes in their environment when the soil is loaded by synthesising new material and strengthening the soil. We develop a prototype CAD system which maps genetic responses of individual bacteria cells to geotechnical models of stress and pore pressure. We show different gene promoter sensitivities may make substantial changes to patterns of consolidation. We conclude by indicating future research in this area which combines both in vivo and in silico work.

title Relações Críticas no Ensino de Sistemas CAD [Critic Relations in Teaching CAD Systems]
source SIGraDi 2012 [Proceedings of the 16th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Brasil - Fortaleza 13-16 November 2012, pp. 312-316
summary The present work part of the questioning about teaching models of CAD within an experimental didactic activity where questions emerge about possible formalism produced by direct application of technology in the generative processes of architectural objects. In this sense suggests a docent position in guiding the student as one who no longer plays in the formalization process geometries, but a builder of a critical process that requires attention to issues beyond form that assist the consolidation of a social actor.

title De-coding Rio de Janeiro's Favelas - Shape grammar application as a contribution to the debate over the regularisation of favelas. The case of Parque Royal.
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. 429-438
summary This study constitutes the first step of a broader PhD project, which aims to build a bridge between the architectural and the juridical examination of the typicality of low-income settlements within the city of Rio de Janeiro, the favelas. The purpose is to define a rule-based typological analysis to ease the process of evaluating the typicality of favelas and the possible, desirable form of its regularisation. This objective strives to equip all the actors involved in the debate with an analytical device able to represent the socially acknowledged, yet unofficial, rules that have been moulding favelas so far. By this means, this study tests shape grammar as a methodology for approaching this interdisciplinary issue. A shape grammar for a first case study, Parque Royal favela, located in the Governor Island, is presented. As preliminary results of the research, the paper encompasses the three early stages of construction of the case study: invasion, expansion and consolidation.

title Monitoring the Dynamics of Informal Settlements in Dar Es Salaam by Remote Sensing: Exploring the Use of Spot, Ers and Small Format Aerial Photography
source CORP 2003, Vienna University of Technology, 25.2.-28.2.2003 [Proceedings on CD-Rom]
summary Dar es Salaam is exemplary for cities in the developing world facing an enormous population growth. In the last decades, unplanned settlements have tremendously expanded, causing that around 70 percent of the urban dwellers are living now-a-days in these areas. Tools for monitoring such tremendous growth are relatively weak in developing countries, thus an effective satellite based monitoring system can provide a useful instrument for monitoring the dynamics of urban development. An investigation to asses the ability of extracting reliable information on the expansion and consolidation levels (density) of urban development of the city of Dar es Salaam from SPOT-HRV and ERS-SAR images is described. The use of SPOT and ERS should provide data that is complementary to data derived from the most recent aerial photography and from digital topographic maps. In a series of experiments various classification and fusion techniques are applied to the SPOT-HRV and ERS-SAR data to extract information on building density that is comparable to that obtained from the 1992 data. Ultimately, building density is estimated by linear and non-linear regression models on the basis of an one ha kernel and further aggregation is made to the level of informal settlements for a final analysis. In order to assess the reliability, use is made of several sample areas that are relatively stable over the study period, as well as, of data derived from small format aerial photography. The experiments show a high correlation between the density data derived from the satellite images and the test areas.

summary The following contribution describes research work in progress within the context of the focal field of research and development "Remote Teamwork (RT)" at Vienna University of Technology. Current research work is aiming at the elaboration of suited collaborative remote-working structures for research and project transactions (incl. study projects) - within the context of spatial planning - on the basis of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM, a technology of broad band telecommunications). The generation and manipulation of digital spatial models and their virtual transportation within large distances represent main objectives. The current subjects in architecture, urban and regional planning (e.g. master planning, building-up planning, urban design, interior design) act as test projects to be defined in the course of the research work in their contents and spatial context and to be represented as digital spatial working models. Special attention is given to consolidation, harmonizing and advancement of current single activities in the field of ATM (e.g. facilitation of the access to technology, definition of project partners at the global level, development of originary, planning- and design-relevant software on the basis of native-ATM).

summary The work we present may be considered as the consolidation of a methodology that was already outlined in the paper presented in the second M&D congress held in San Sebastian (1998). We establish that, in architectural design, the computer is only used in the last step in order to achieve the traditional Euclidean design in a more precise and comfortable way and to improve the quality of the handmade designs. Our proposal consists in modifying the process from the very beginning of the creative act. That is, when the design conception is born. If we want to obtain the maximum benefit of the computer possibilities, we ought to support this conception by means of a language tuned with the mentioned tool. Due to the fact that the internal language used by the computer for producing graphics is mathematical, we must incorporate, in some way, this language in the codification of the creative process. In accordance with this setting, we propose a mathematical grammar for the design based on the construction of modulated standard mathematical functions. This grammar is developed independently from the graphical software and it is specified only when a particular computer program for the effective generation on the graphical objects is selected.

summary Absence of reliable and accurate surveying of Tibetan architectural heritage has long been a major constraint for architects, architectural historians and archeologists working in that region. Due to distinctive geographical environment and architectural typology, unique surveying technologies are required in Tibet. In the last three years, integrated digital surveying technologies are applied to architectural heritage in Gyantse, a Tibetan city. The aim of the surveying is to document and analyze local architectural heritage for potential technical intervention such as consolidation, restoration and renovation. Key technical issues ranging from reliability of consumer-level UAV to BIM-based platform are presented in the article. The conclusions are that digital technologies greatly improve architectural heritage surveying in Tibet in terms of accuracy, efficiency and versatility. Future works will be addressed in more robust algorithms for points cloud semantic segmentation, change detection of large-scale architectural heritage based on remotely sensed imagery over time, and data exchange and coordination between BIM and GIS, etc.
