title Fabricação digital e variedade fora do contexto industrial
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. 320-323
summary This paper discusses issues raised during an experiment about the use of digital fabrication technologies in non-industrial contexts in three concurrent fronts: The first front was to get familiarized with the production ecology of a non-industrial building context, the favela. The second front was to verify the accessibility of digital fabrication technologies outside the industry by building a low cost CNC milling machine based on DIY instructions available in the internet. And the last front was to develop useful solutions with this technology to that context. Partial results are guidelines for improving the technology in order to fit the context

title Machinima Fictions: A Do - it - yourself Practice to Produce Animated Movies from Videogames
source SIGraDi 2010_Proceedings of the 14th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, pp. Bogotá, Colombia, November 17-19, 2010, pp. 153-156
summary The mixture of playing videogames and producing movies has produced a new kind of moving image, a hybrid that, in the underground realm of videogames, has silently lured thousands to enter its territories. In the late 1990s, devoted players started to use videogame software for movie production. Their activity molded a narrative medium called ‘machinima’. Two recent productions are discussed to describe the various facets of this phenomenon in order to present the features that make up machinima and how it is relevant to popular culture.

title Intelligent Informed Landscapes - The Eco-Systemic Prototypical Interventions' Generative and Iterative Co-Designing Co-Performances, Agencies and Processes
source M. Haeusler, M. A. Schnabel, T. Fukuda (eds.), Intelligent & Informed - Proceedings of the 24th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand, 15-18 April 2019, pp. 151-160
summary The work fights for a shift from Anthropocene in urban environment through both, analogue and digital eco-systemic prototypical urban interventions, mixing biological as well as digital performances of post-digital landscape. It directly engages with the local human and non-human communities as well as it offers its online recipes and codes for DIY local iterations tagged in public space. Such intelligent and informed cultural landscape therefore covers several multi-layered generative and iterative agencies for its self-development.

title Arduino Microcontrollers and The Queen’s Hamlet: Utilitarian and Hedonized DIY Practices in Contemporary Electronic Culture
source ACADIA 11: Integration through Computation [Proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)] [ISBN 978-1-6136-4595-6] Banff (Alberta) 13-16 October, 2011, pp. 44-47
summary In this paper, I will pull together concepts of utility-driven do-it-yourself (DIY) culture and pleasure-oriented DIY practice to investigate a significant trend in contemporary computing culture, the “maker” movement, typified by an interest in building personalized and handmade electronic devices with sensors, motors and lights, usually controlled by microcontrollers like the Arduino. My argument is that maker culture has been co-opted by consumer hobby culture, but this is not necessarily detrimental because it provides an important outlet for personal exploration, increases an understanding of how electronic media actually works and assists individuals to be actors in a culture that is increasingly complex, technological and digitized.

title Fabricate It, Paint It – And Don’t Wait up: Separating Fact from Fiction in Digitally Sponsored Fabrication
source Global Design and Local Materialization[Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures / ISBN 978-3-642-38973-3] Shanghai, China, July 3-5, 2013, pp. 149-158.
summary This paper offers perspectives on emerging trends in materiality and digital fabrication. It explores effects on communication practices and investigates how this changing materiality of data impacts collaboration and interoperability within design and making. Computer numerical controlled (CNC) routing and laser-cutting services are available in most major cities. Affordable kits for 3D printers, CNC routers and DIY KUKA robots are available across the Internet. A considerable part of the attraction of these tools is the ability to fabricate physical goods without detailed fabrication knowledge. We look at this phenomenon through two sets of examples, making furniture with a CNC router and making robots and tangibles with a 3D printer. In our examples it appears materiality remains an important factor throughout the process. We unpick these examples to shed light on how the technology impacts knowledge practices and ways of thinking during design and making.

title A Mobile Sensing Kit for Urban Analysis - For more legible, quantifiable intangible and temporary data
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. 63-70
summary This paper describes the design and testing of a mobile sensing kit for real-timeurban site analysis. It aims to contribute to a discussion on the importance ofsensing-based mapping of urban phenomena following our assertion that current delivery of urban analysis methodologies, with their emphasis on visuo-spatialanalysis only, fail to create maps that reflect the nuanced and layered interrelationships between the people and the physical environmental space they live in. In essence, the paper will bring to light the set up components and deployment of a mobile sensing kit that allows for usually mapped static invisible data (air quality, temperature, humidity) to be mapped as visible data. In other words, we want to explore how real-time geo-referenced data collection can enhance traditional data mapping and visualization methods enabling designers to understand better the urban space.

title BIM-Aided Prefabrication for Minimum Waste DIY Timber Houses
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 1, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 251-258
summary The continuous housing shortage demands efficient ways of design and construction. In the context of rising construction standards and shrinking manpower, one of the possible answers to the problem is prefabrication oriented towards do-it-yourself (DIY) construction methods, which could contribute to the low and middle income housing supply in the market. The article covers the process of developing an experimental tool for aiding single-family housing design with the use of small-element solid timber prefabrication, suitable for DIY assembly. The presented tool uses the potential of BIM technology adapting a traditionally-designed house to the needs of prefabrication and optimizing it in terms of waste generated in the assembly process. The presented experiment was realized in the Autodesk Revit environment and incorporates custom generative scripts developed in Dynamo-for-Revit. The prototype analyzed an input model and converted it into a prefabricated alternative based on the user- and technology-specified boundary conditions. The prototype was tested on the example design of a two-story single-family house. The results compare the automated optimized model conversion with manual adaptation approach. The implemented algorithm allowed for reducing the construction waste by more than 50%.

title From DiY to DiWO: from Crafting to Digital Collaboration
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 1313-1320
summary Cultural changes based on recent development of information technologies suggests that knowledge could be spread with less control and greater accessibility, allowing the emergence of communities that launch alternatives like, for example, networks of laboratories for manufacturing. However, similar ambitions regarding the creation of alternatives to industrial production can be identified in the countercultural context of the 1960s and 1970s. This article traces some comparisons between these two historical moments with the goal of investigate how do-it-yourself (DiY) appears (again) in the design scene today as do-it-with-others (DiWO), establishing approximations and distances between two selected objects of study.

title When Residents Are Makers:Using Additive Manufacturing for Rehabilitating Modernist Housing Heritage
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. 611-618
summary French colonial authorities realized numerous Modernist housing projects in the city of Algiers in the 1950s. Residents, mostly of low-income local communities, have modified these buildings over time to fulfill updated needs in overpopulation. While the government relocated the residents of some complexes to new settlements and demolished the buildings, in some, residences continued to live in and adapt the physical properties of the dwellings for new generations. These residents are already active agents in housing rehabilitation. Their modifications are almost systemic and have a language, inspiring sustainable approaches that are alternative to complete abolishment of architectural heritage. The efforts of the residents can be organized and enhanced with digital fabrication and open source sharing platforms of the maker culture. In pursuit of a rehabilitation strategy to these sites, we formally analyze the dweller modifications and assess the residents' competencies in order to formulate a context-oriented resident-driven do-it-yourself support framework.
