title Encoding bamboo’s nature for freeform structure design
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 15 - no. 2, 169-182
summary Bamboo is a construction material that is renewable, environmentally friendly and widely available. It has long been used in various projects, ranging from temporary, easily assembled and rectilinear structures to complex freeform pavilions. Design with bamboo has never been easy to architects and engineers due to its irregular shape and round section. This prompts the need to develop a new design process that can accommodate those properties that hinder bamboo to be used by designers. In this article, we take a close look at freeform structure design and specifically demonstrate how systematically and algorithmically parametric modelling can be used to tackle bamboo material irregularities and bamboo jointing challenges. A two-stage optimization process is proposed to support a fabricable freeform structure design through encoding material properties and freeform shape optimization. The approach approximates the given freeform shape using a finite set of unique bamboo elements while maintaining the aesthetic design intention. By limiting the number of bamboo elements, it will provide insight to both designers and engineers on the efficiency and cost benefits of producing required structure elements for the final assembly.

title Some Phenomena of Design Thinking in the Concept Generation Stage Using Computer Media
source CAADRIA 2000 [Proceedings of the Fifth Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 981-04-2491-4] Singapore 18-19 May 2000, pp. 255-263
summary Today, the computer media has become more and more important in design process. It is not only used as kind of simulated and presented media. Also, various kinds of research start developing the computer aided design system and probing the possibility of using computers in creative activities. In resent years, many studies concentrate on the forepart of design, the concept generation stage, but most of them are based on conventional media such as papers and pencils. This study attempts to probe the different design thinking phenomenon produced through concept generation by computers and by conventional media; and the effects of the development and presence of design concept generation resulted from the merits and features of the computers themselves. The methodology used here is protocol analysis of gaining subject's verbal data in think-aloud way and then encoding it to analyze. The outcome of this study is to find some phenomena of design thinking when using computers to progress concept generation, and suggest further studies relating to the topic of methodology.

title Educational Experiment on Generative Tool Development in Architecture
source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 685-692
summary This paper describes an introductory computational design course for graduate students of design in which Islamic star patterns are utilized in teaching computational logic and design rules. Formal descriptions of eight pointed Islamic star pattern that depict a variety of geometrical structures and constraints of the Euclidean shapes are extracted with the shape grammar method. Then star pattern generator that runs on a specific CAD system is developed by encoding these formal descriptions in systems scripting language. The examples of new designs are generated, and then fabricated using various CAM technologies.
