title ICT-enabled Civic Empowerment and Participation: in Design, through Design
source Thompson, Emine Mine (ed.), Fusion - Proceedings of the 32nd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, UK, 10-12 September 2014, pp. 89-97
summary This paper aims to discuss the potentials of novel modes of participatory design in relation to the latest developments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The first part of the study involves the extraction of the basic principles from the extraordinary cases of the Medical Faculty Housing by Lucien Kroll (1976) and Cedric Price's Fun Place (1965) in which various forms of ICT-enabled participation were conceived. In the second part, we reframe the existing ICT tools and strategies and elaborate their potentials to support the modes of participation performed in these two cases. As a result, by distilling the created knowledge, we introduce a model of ICT-enabled design participation which exploits a set of collective action tools to support sustainable ways of self-organization and bottom-up design.

title Buoyant Memory - Neuroscience for a Virtual Architecture
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 55-60
summary Gravity prescribes a very specific maxim for the built environment represented by the horizontal layer cake we are all so familiar with. This is contrasted by designs such as the International Space Station where no floor is present and every surface provides some function whether storage, data display and instrumentation or biological support infrastructure. Because of the homogeneity of approach to each surface an astronaut requires literal markers to orient oneself within the vessel. Very seldom within the natural, earth-bound environment does one find oneself in a situation where “up” is a questionable vector. What happens when architecture is translated to the virtual. What is the role of the architect or of his or her architecture in a virtual universe. Would a virtual architecture itself not become a social engine, its social context being that of online gaming, crowdfunding and social media? This engine's main role being the creation of architecturally inspiring gathering spaces for learning, playing and community building.

title Crowdfunding as a Collaborative Design Tool - Codefining the Variables for Mass Customisation Design Products
source Thompson, Emine Mine (ed.), Fusion - Proceedings of the 32nd eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, UK, 10-12 September 2014, pp. 245-249
summary Designfunding, defined here as a unique category of crowdfunding, is described and explored regarding its potential to become an important collaborative design tool for parametric design and mass customisation concepts. As it may serve, among other aspects, the preliminary first-hand gathering of customer desires as a basis for detailing a designer's conception of a design product, possibilities of the integration of this tool into design-education are proposed and discussed. .
