source [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Eindhoven (The Netherlands) 11-13 November 1993
summary In June 1993 the Computer Lab had the opportunity to organize a three-week workshop for approximately 10 students without any prior knowledge whatsoever of CAAD. We decided to make the most of this chance to experiment with the CAAD training programme.

title Comparative Evaluation of Four Daylighting Software Programs
source 1998 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings Proceedings. American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy
summary By the mid-1980's, a number of software packages were under development to predict daylighting performance in buildings, in particular illumination levels in daylighted spaces. An evaluation in 1988 by Ubbelohde et al. demonstrated that none of the software then available was capable of predicting the simplest of real daylighting designs. In the last ten years computer capabilities have evolved rapidly and we have four major packages widely available in the United States. This paper presents a comparative evaluation from the perspective of building and daylighting design practice. A contemporary building completed in 1993 was used as a base case for evaluation. We present the results from field measurements, software predictions and physical modeling as a basis for discussing the capabilities of the software packages in architectural design practice. We found the current software packages far more powerful and nuanced in their ability to predict daylight than previously. Some can accurately predict quantitative daylight performance under varying sky conditions and produce handsome and accurate visualizations of the space. The programs differ significantly, however, in their ease of use, modeling basis and the emphasis between quantitative predictions and visualization in the output.

title Personality assessment in regard to design strategies
source Timmermans, Harry (Ed.), Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture (Proceedings of a conference held in Mierlo, the Netherlands in July 1992), ISBN 0-7923-2444-7
summary This paper discusses some preliminary results of several knowledge-acquisition and documentation-structuring techniques that were used to assess the working styles of architects. The focus of this assessment was on their strategic design behaviour. Hettema's Interactive Personality Model (Hettema 1979, 1989) was used to explain and interpret these results. The methods used to acquire the necessary data are protocol analysis, card sorting and interviews. The results suggest that at least three parameters can be used to explain and differentiate the strategic design behaviour of architects. These parameters are S (site-oriented), B (brief-oriented) and C (concept-oriented). A priority hierarchy of these parameters reveals six major distinguishable working styles. These results are captured in a new design model that can be used in data bank implementations.

title Information Models for Integrated Design
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 375-390
summary A major problem in the development of integrated systems for building design is the complexity of building design information. This paper discusses a number of abstraction mechanisms for information modelling, which help to reduce the complexity of building design information, without losing semantics. A distinction is made in universal mechanisms and mechanisms for building design information. The usage of the mechanisms is illustrated with an example of a building type model.

title Minicode Generator: A Methodology to Extract Generic Building Codes
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 225-239
summary This paper describes work in progress. It summarizes the methodology for analyzing building codes and isolating generic building characteristics. These characteristics can be used by building code experts to markup code documents and subsequently by building code users to extract code provisions that apply to their projects. Although this methodology has been developed for the National Building Code of Canada, it can be applied to any model code and implemented on most computer platforms using off-the-shelf software. The paper outlines the scope of the research, the historical development, the problems encountered, and paradigms for markup and extraction of code provisions.

title 3D Computer graphics
source Addison-Wesley, pp, 1-13
summary The third edition of Alan Watt's 3D Computer Graphics, a bible of computer graphics, includes a CD-ROM full of examples and updated information on graphics and rendering algorithms. The book discusses many of the techniques that have evolved in the seven years since the previous edition was published. 3D Computer Graphics is a textbook, and it's designed for serious programmers creating graphics applications (not end users). Over the course of 16 sections, Watt introduces the concepts and implementation of computer imaging, from "Mathematical Fundamentals of Computer Graphics" to "Representation and Rendering" and ending with "Image-Based Rendering and Photo-Modeling." The last section, devoted to computer animation, includes methods for linked structures, collision detection, and particle animation (to name a few). Although the topics are sometimes hard to grasp, Mr. Watt writes clearly and concisely, making generous use of diagrams to help convey the principles described in the text. The accompanying CD-ROM includes over a dozen studies of computer graphics techniques and rendering algorithms. Presented in HTML, the exhaustive studies, each with a matrix of thumbnails, demonstrates the varied achievable results. One minor complaint here: although the thumbnails can be clicked to view a much larger image, the larger versions come in .tif format, which few (if any) Web browsers can view. Users will need another application to view them. Having the large image in .jpg format would have enabled the reader to view it in the already-open Web browser.

title Architectural Education Objectives and the Use of Multimedia
source [eCAADe Conference Proceedings] Eindhoven (The Netherlands) 11-13 November 1993
summary The almost universal curriculum format for schools of architecture involves conventional lecturing techniques in the areas of history. structures, construction. building materials, urban planning, contextual studies and of late CAAD. Conventional academic wisdom dictates that the information and techniques gained from these lectures be applied through the design studio where this acquired data is synthesized with design concepts to produce an end product. Conventional lecture styles have usually imparted information through the spoken word emphasized and accompanied by written support through the use of hand-outs, black/white boards, overhead projection and the ubiquitous slides! More adventurous exponents have endeavored to incorporate videos, films and projection of computer generated screens to supplement the basic information transfer. The transmission retention/comprehension rates of concepts, ideas and basic data have depended greatly on the charisma of the individual lecturer, his command of the subject and the students' enthusiasm to partake of the process of information transference. The inherent problems of lectures being a one way action with little, if any, participatory involvement of the students have caused concerned lecturers to resort to seminars, tutorial, tests, exercises and other forced participation modes to involve students in their own education.

title Layouts, Solids, Grammar Interpreters and Fire Stations
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 75-90
summary This paper is presented in three main parts. First, it reports the results of an effort to combine two representations (layouts and solid models) within a single generative framework. Second, it describes fire stations as a building type and reports a phased grammar that embodies information about the type and generates fire station designs likely to be members of the type. Third, it describes a useful way of controlling grammatical generation via interactive decisions on rule application, hierarchical decomposition of designs, and ordering of the conflict set of rule instantiations.
