title Procedural Terrain: A Virtual Bulldozer
source Sixth International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 9971-62-423-0] Singapore, 24-26 September 1995, pp. 257-265
summary We describe a system for procedural landform design, which uses the simple metaphor of a two-dimensional profile or «bladeŽ, swept along a three-dimensional trajectory, or «pathŽ, leaving behind a modeled surface in its wake. This «pathŽ and «bladeŽ system can mimic a common bulldozer Ů a simple rectangular blade moved along a path constrained to straight lined and large radius curves Ů as well as more fanciful landform designs Ů a blade of continually changing profile swept along an exponential spiral path, for instance. Our prototype «bulldozerŽ (implemented in AutoLisp) operates in a field of procedurally defined landform «primitivesŽ to create a virtual surface, and uses a standard rectangular mesh for displaying the resultant landform.

title Design from Known to New -Issues of Generative Architecture under Digital Environment
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary Given the power of digital design media, architects are confronting a new territory of architectural morphology. This paper attempts to explore the issues of generative architecture under digital environment. It is concerned with architectural precedents, their morphological attributes, and morphological analysis as the point of departure for generating new designs. Three design experiments are employed for the exploration. The first experiment addresses the issue of a single building. The second experiment focuses on the problem of urban architecture. The third design experiment places emphasis on the issue of urban landform. In addition to the exciting novel forms and spaces generated from the afore-mentioned design experiments, a number of critical issues on generative architecture are raised and discussed in the paper. Among them are: (1) the concept and logic underlying the methodology of the design experiments; (2) the formulation of the generative design systems utilizing the existing morphological structures; (3) the employment of the digital design media (e.g. image processing, 3D abstraction and extrusion) for various purposes during the process of analysis and generation.

title Constructing and Reconstructing the City: The Glasgow Experience
source SIGraDi 2002 - [Proceedings of the 6th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Caracas (Venezuela) 27-29 november 2002, pp. 94-96
summary This paper describes and illustrates three very different uses of Information and Computing Technology (ICT) to represent, interpret and provide access to the city of Glasgow, Scotlandís largest city. The first application is a web-based three dimensional model of the city centre comprising the topography of the landform, the road and river networks and around 10,000 individual buildings. The model provides the interface to a number of different databases and search engines help the user explor the city. The second application is a recently completed CD-ROM illustrating, from an aerial perspective, the growth of the city from pre-historic times to the present. It comprises 230 images, 140,000 words of text, 5 video clips and 35 sound clips. The third application is to create a web-based massive archive of images (around 10,000) and historical events, personalities, objects and themes that can be updated and enlarged inexpensively and made available on-line to the widest possible audience.

title Ground Sculpture on CADD: Forming and Coloring the Landform in a Graphic Data Base
source New Ideas and Directions for the 1990ís [ACADIA Conference Proceedings] Gainsville (Florida - USA) 27-29 October 1989, pp. 49-59
summary A graphic data base of our campus is being developed to record physical inventory and to provide a three- dimensional development tool for the University. The campus has many changes in elevation. Computer terrain modeling is planned to provide traditional contour information as well as to furnish a base for perspective views of the campus. Selecting an appropriate geometry to record the landform, and determining criteria for coloration of the ground surface is critical to the success of the project. Methods of modeling a three-dimensional surface are discussed; color principles which articulate landform are explored. A methodology is illustrated which achieves a flexible model of the campus landform.

title Land forming while you are on site
source CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 89-7141-648-3] New Delhi (India) 28-30 April 2005, vol. 1, pp. 387-397
summary In landscape architecture design, land forming is the key to trigger many design concepts. However, the design media we currently used doesnít provide suitable data or better visual feedback to designers when they are on site. In this paper, we develop a framework as well as a ubiquitous device called MODA comprised of five components. They are sensors, representation, display/viewing, motion and control that result from behaviors observation and analysis. According to the framework, a practical example of landform design is conducted and examined with one version of MODA combining both hardware and software.
