title Exploring the ICT Potential to Maximize User - Built Space Interaction in Monumental Spaces - The case of the municipal agora in Chania, Crete
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 2, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 603-610
summary During the last two decades, the introduction of digital multimedia into the museums, monuments and exhibition spaces describe a new open and flexible institution, which is attentive to the needs of its visitors. In fact, many different opinions, preferences and personalized agendas acquire now a symbiotic relationship with the strict archeological site contexts with ICT. This relationship is established the moment that the actual space comes into terms with the visitors' needs and without compromising spatially, it reveals all the different movement alternatives that could satisfy the visitor. In fact, ICTs create alternative experiences through the juxtaposition of a digital layer on physical space. Drawing on this objective, this paper studies the relation between user and monument by enhancing their interaction in the Municipal Market of Chania, in Crete. The objective of the paper is to examine how state-of-the-art IoT systems can be seamlessly incorporated into the smart cultural heritage strategy of the suggested place. The macroscope is to explore alternatives strategies to enhance sustainable tourism in Chania.

title Reconstruccion Digital de Arquitectura: Un Metodo de EnseŇanza en Modelaje, Rendering, y Animacion (Digital Reconstruction of Architecture: A Method of Training in Modelling, Rendering and Animation)

summary Throughout time, scholars have been resurrecting the architecture of past ages, Sir Arthur Evans with the Palace of Knossos in Crete, Heinrich Schliemann with the ruins of Troy, and Thor Hyerdahl with the Kontiki and Ra ship reconstructions. Digital reconstruction provides a powerful means to portray architecture and environments that no longer exist; structures that exist in a decayed form can be restored to an appearance of their former condition; and artist's visions that never existed can be reinterpreted in three-dimensions. These types of projects are highly suitable for teaching students, especially in advanced classes, how to use computer graphics for modeling, rendering, and animation. It is often difficult to gather accurate geometric and texture data and the information that is available is often ambiguous or even contradictory. The ambiguity of the information forces the students to truly study and attempt to comprehend what they are trying to model. Indeed, working with incomplete and contradictory graphical information is a normal part of architectural practice that one often has to deal with in the early stages of design

summary The more complex our cities become the more difficult it is for designers to use traditional tools for understanding and analyzing the inner essence of an eco-system such as the contemporary urban environment. Even many of the recently crafted digital tools fail to address the necessity for a more holistic design approach which captures the virtual and the physical, the immaterial and the material. Handling of massive chunks of information, classification and assessment of diverse data is nowadays more crucial than ever before. We see a significant potential in combining the fields of composition in music and architecture through the use of information technology. Merging the two fields has the intense potential to release new, innovative tools for urban designers. This paper describes an innovative tool developed at the Technical University of Crete, through which an urban designer can work on the music transcription of a specific urban environment applying music compositional rules and filters in order to identify discordant entities, highlight imbalanced parts and make design corrections. Our cities can be tuned.

title Parametric Models and Algorithmic Thinking in Architectural Education
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. 401-410
summary Part of our research and teaching agenda at the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Crete focuses on algorithmic design with parametric models, its methodological characteristics and the study of applied and theoretical work that defined this architectural design thinking. Our work challenges architectural design processes, through the systematic study of parametric models. This paper presents three projects from the undergraduate elective course "Special Topics in Architectural Design", which took place during the spring semester of 2017, that investigated parametric models for a given architectural problem, inspired, to some extent, by precedents in 20th century architecture where students traced algorithmic design thinking. Although students understood well the concept and function of parametric models and in many cases applied them successfully for their design objectives, several of them did not fully assimilate some critical aspects of computation. This allowed us to determine areas of improvement and points of complete reevaluation in our educational strategy approach.

title Algorithmic Thinking in Design and Construction - Working with parametric models
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 19-28
summary This paper examines the parametric model in algorithmic design processes, using the outcome of an educational digital design and fabrication course as a case study. In its long history, algorithmic design as a form-finding method, allowed designers to manage complex non-standard associative geometries, suggesting a shift from the digital representation of form, to its systematic representation into a parametric model through code. Rather than a style or a tool, the parametric model is best defined in mathematical terms; in practice it incorporates the organizational logic of the form and the topological associations of its parts, so that a change in its constitutive parameters will invoke a concerted update of the entire model, and, iteratively, formal and structural variations. In a series of design experiments that took place at the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Crete in the spring of 2015, we used parametric models represented into visual code, from the initial conceptual stage to fabrication. From the experience and outcome of this course, we deduced that, compared to other digital formation methods, parametric models allow the designer to constantly interact with the model through the code, producing discreet variations without losing control of the design intentions, by “searching” into a wide range (albeit finite) of virtual results. This suggested a shift in culturally embedded patterns of modernist design thinking.

title Discrete Surfacesfor Architectural Design
source Nashboro Press 2007
summary Geometric problems originating in architecture can lead to interesting research and results in geometry processing, computer aided geometric design, and discrete differential geometry. In this ar- ticle we survey this development and consider an important problem of this kind: Discrete surfaces (meshes) which admit a multi-layered geometric support structure. It turns out that such meshes can be el- egantly studied via the concept of parallel mesh. Discrete versions of the network of principal curvature lines turn out to be parallel to ap- proximately spherical meshes. Both circular meshes and the conical meshes considered only recently are instances of this meta-theorem. We dicuss properties and interrelations of circular and conical meshes, and also their connections to meshes in static equilibrium and dis- crete minimal surfaces. We conclude with a list of research problems in geometry which are related to architectural design.

title Using Big Data to Design User-Centric Museums - From visitors loyal to museums to museums loyal to users
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. 233-242
summary With a view to design-led digital applications that meet the material world, we create hybrid spaces, where the user/visitor is active and takes part in one action in the material and virtual world. So, today, museums all over the world face the opportunity to re-invent themselves and their relationships with their visitors. They establish a complex non-linear dynamic ecosystem. ?his transformation brings out series of queries, such as the role of the architect that redefines the museum process and the new terms in the museum context. This paper refers to the dynamic changes that define a hybrid environment, describes the transformation into a user-centric museum and the approach to create visitor/user-centered museum and how this was applied into the Archaeological Museum in Chania, Crete. A museum that places visitors at the center of its mission.
