summary This paper presents a framework for modeling the way that designers interpret their world during design activity. Designers interpret the world through their expectations. Expectations are derived from situation. Agents form concepts in situations and use concepts in situations. A model of concept formation based upon a geometric representation of conceptual space is described. In the model, expectations are constructed from memory within a situation. In interpretation, the world is made to look like expectations. Some preliminary explorations with an implementation are described.

summary Language is a particular kind of formal structure. It allows systematic approach to the subject matter for the speaker while providing an exploratory space to reason with. In this paper, we present a simple language that describes spatial qualities of architecture based on the geometry of built elements. We also provide a detailed description of the components and the structure of our language and show how one might construct compound definitions using the language. We then discuss the implication of constructing a language and how we can use it as a tool and research model in the study of architecture.

title Digital Design through Production Pedagogy: Cases Involving Student/Industry Collaboration
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary Innovation through digital design in contemporary practice has led to completely new ways of designing and making architecture. To prepare for these innovative opportunities, students are turning to alternative skill sets than those traditionally gained in an architectural curriculum. This paper argues that we must reconstruct our architectural curricula in order to better prepare students for a shifting professional landscape. While current material-based production realities of translating digital design into built form have much in common with modernist traditions, exercises, sequences, and collaborative opportunities in schools should pass through a relevant lens examining the true potential of working with the information age.

summary This paper updates a research project that tries to take a snapshot on the use of computers in the average architectural firms in two European countries. Our main interest is to see whether the digital design methods are starting to have an impact in these offices. First results of this research using an online web questionnaire have been presented at the eCAADe 2007 conference in Frankfurt and have been updated and presented at the Sigradi 2008 conference in Havana. At the moment we are working with additional interviews and we are preparing a rerun of the questionnaire to have an idea about the current developments. This paper is still based mainly on the findings we presented at the Sigradi conference to bring this information to the eCAADe community as well. We will be presenting the results of the new questionnaire in Istanbul.

title Rapid SmartCode Modeling - Procedural Modeling for Urban Environments
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This paper presents an image-driven method to rapidly generate 3D digital urban models for presentation in a real-time Virtual Reality (VR) environment. Several computational tools and methods are developed in order to give the end user the ability to transform a single 2D image into a realistically textured and rendered a 3D urban model. Using this method, city models based on SmartCode, a template for planning and urban design, are generated and presented in a VR visualization tool. The methods to generate VR city models including inputs, process, output, and pipeline are explained. One generated 3D city model is demonstrated in the results section.

summary Recent introduction and coupling of digitally mediated design and production environments facilitated a radical deviation from the traditional ways of using representations, knowledge assets, organizational forms and standards. Consequently, we observe an abundance of the traditional views of design and the emergence of new cognitive models/constructs based on the emerging relationships between the designer, the design object (artefact), the design tools/systems and the organizational network of the various actors and their activities in building design & production. The paper reports on the initial findings of an ongoing research which aims to uncover the ways in which digitalization and digital tools have recently been adopted to the work practices of multidisciplinary firms and the evolving socio-technical networks and organizational infrastructures within architectural practice.

title An AR-Based Navigation Interface
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 441-449
summary In order to improve the learning effect of the navigation interfaces in current museums, the architectural exhibition in museum exhibition hall is taken as an example in this study. An instant interactive navigation interface which is different from those used before is developed to guide the visitors to learn exactly the designing styles of architects. Two results are reached in this experiment: 1) a model of knowledge acquirement which is most possibly related to the learning process based on the exhibition of learning topics; 2) the influences of operating movements on specific topics that emphasize knowledge domains.

title Programming framework for architectural design ANAR+: Object oriented geometry
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 771- 785
summary From the recent advent of scripting tools integrated into commercial CAAD software and everyday design practice, the use of programming applied to an architectural design process becomes a necessary field of study. The presented research explores the use of programming as explorative and reflexive medium (Schön, 1983) through the development of a programming framework for architectural design. Based on Java, the ANAR+ library is a parametric geometry environment meant to be used as programming interface by designers. Form exploration strategies based on parametric variations depend on the internal logic description, a key role for form generation. In most commercial CAD software, geometric data structures are often predefined objects, thus constraining the form exploration, whereas digital architectural research and teaching are in need for an encompassing tool able to step beyond new software products limitations.

summary A new urban space information model for urban computing environment is proposed to achieve dynamic state of context-awareness in urban computing environment. For this, an abstract space model served as an integrating layer for disparate indoor and outdoor spatial information models based on potential design scenarios. At the end of the project, a prototype and a test-bed are implemented.

title Study on Zoning of Urban Morphology based on GIS
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 317-326
summary The traditional studies of urban morphology mainly focus on material aspects such as urban construction, urban environment. The writers of the paper, however, point out that the nature behind material aspects should be load capacity of urban land-use, which can be reflected through some economic and technological indexes, such as floor area ratio(FAR), building density and building height, and generally they are relative. The paper forms a new morphology zoning method after having studied the relation of the above indexes based on the digital methods of GIS. This rout of thought may have some reference value for controlling the expanse of urban land-use, optimizing the allocation of resources and urban morphology and supervising the implementation of urban planning. In the paper, the author proposed the concept of “zhubei” to describe and evaluate urban morphology. We can further analyze “zhubei” regards urban planning analysis and management, for example, the slope analysis, aspect analysis, view analysis, area and volume analysis etc. Therefore, we can describe current urban morphology and evaluate its rationality by relevant conclusions just like describing vegetation.

title The Design of a Mobile Navigation System Based on QR Codes for Historic Buildings
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 103-112
summary Due to the rapid development of mobile and compact electronic devices such as PDAs and smart phones, designers and developers now have to consider user mobility and the dynamic context of use in the design of interactive systems. In this study, literatures associated with mobile navigation systems in museums and historic buildings are first reviewed in order to understand the features, advantages, and drawbacks of current mobile navigation technology. The feasibility of applying QR codes in the navigation of historic buildings is then discussed, and the mobile navigation principles mentioned in previous literatures are applied in our proposed system. A number of common problems are encountered in the navigation of local historic buildings or museums. Visitors (1) cannot understand what makes an exhibited item a work of art; (2) do not know where to start or how to get started; (3) feel rushed by guides during the guided tour; and (4) find that the audio guide is not clear enough. Managers of historic buildings or museums are generally concerned about (1) the high cost of constructing a mobile navigation environment; (2) possible damage to devices; and (3) the cost of device maintenance. This study attempts to solve the above issues by constructing an affordable digital navigation environment that enables users to clearly understand each exhibited item and its location.

title Programmatic Formation: Practical Applications of Parametric Design
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 7 - no. 4, 587-604
summary Programmatic Formation explores design as a responsive process. The study we present engages the complexity of the surroundings using parametric and generative design methods. It illustrates that responsiveness of designs can be achieved beyond geometric explorations. The parametric models can combine and respond simultaneously to design and its programmatic factors, such as performance-sensitive design-decisions, and constraints. We demonstrate this through a series of case studies for a housing tower. The studies explore the extent to which non-spatial parameters can be incorporated into spatial parametric dependencies in design. The results apply digital design and modeling, common to the curriculum of architecture schools, to the practical realm of building design and city planning. While practitioners are often slow to include contemporary design and planning methods into their daily work, the research illustrates how the incorporation of skills and knowledge acquired as part of university education can be effectively incorporated into everyday design and planning.

title O Uso de Modelagem Generativa para Representação de Modulações de Alvenarias em Ferramentas BIM
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary One approach to perform the design for production of masonry with BIM tools is to explicitly represent the wall elements. However, this strategy decreases the application performance because of model complexity. Generative Modeling is a modeling paradigm aimed at defining rules and applying them for generating models. The masonry block placement is associated with a set of rules, making the use of generative modeling a viable solution to implicitly represent the blocks. This paper presents some preliminary results of our research on investigating if Generative Modeling can help in the representation of masonry modulation and for the proposal of a shape grammar for representing its basic elements.

title Performance As A Design Driver in Robotic Timber Construction
source Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 22-25 April 2009, pp. 663-671
summary In the research project presented in this paper we investigate the architectonic and constructive potential of additive digital fabrication in timber construction through robotic processes as well as the relation of functional requirements of an exterior wooden wall to design. Form finding through performance analysis is of great interest for architects. With advanced digital fabrication technologies at hand it is possible to produce articulate building elements. This can be exploited to analyze and transform performance criteria into architectural expression. We argue that functional requirements and formal characteristics are interdependent. To allow performance criteria drive the generative parameters of design, custom software tools need to be developed which impart physical aspects of building elements to digital design models.

source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This study aims to contribute to the architectural history, theory and design research. As being part of the modern tradition, it is an enquiry into the epistemological consequences of program-based architectural design whose progenitors lie at the very idea of the modern movement. It aims to develop arguments at the continuation of the discussion of the program emerged in the 1960s. In the study, the main problem in the contemporary design and especially in the digital design that are caused by the disengagement from a convincing epistemological clarity is addressed via a review on program, and an additional introductory survey.

title An urban grammar for Portuguese colonial new towns in the 18th century
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This study describes the morphological urban order underlying Portuguese treatises and Portuguese urban cartographic representation produced from 16th century to 18th century. The historical documentation suggests that Pythagorean-Euclidian geometry appears to be a crucial ingredient for the understanding of Portuguese urban design-thinking and urban design-making. To unveil the genesis of the morphological urban order present in the Portuguese colonial plans of the eighteenth century, a descriptive method, Shape Grammar has been adopted. Shape Grammar, as method, supports the analysis of the form-making logic and has proved to be powerful in shape analysis, description, interpretation, classification, evaluation and generation of a design language.

summary In this paper we present a new parametric approach based on environmental constraints, in order to generate digital models of architectural shape, directly within a three dimensional geo-referenced environment. Those constraints may be regarded as force fields with a specific spatial dimension. The system allows user, through implementation of specific generative procedures, to manage interactive architectural design processes. The designer is able to explore all possible infinite scenarios and the various possible design alternatives, by changing the parameters values and verifying in real time the results of the changes. Two experiments are presented.

summary Capitalism does play a decisive role in the planning and generation of countless generic typologies in the urban landscape to a certain extent. This also includes the planning and generation of housing models. As a result of conventional planning that is based on ‘entrepreneurship subdivision’, only similar housing model for a specific income group is sometimes offered. In the long term, this kind of development occupies massive land, which is not suitable for sustainable growth and creates social segregation. This paper suggests an alternative approach of ‘associative design’. Parametric design software is utilized to generate the housing diversity. It aims to construct a population of housing units that together form a new neigh­borhood model based on the land specificity that emphasizes its economic and ecological factors.

summary In the course of a study into the origins of the Ionic order, a group of fragmentary early capitals of historic importance were measured by short-range laser-scanning, and then reconstructed in their original state by means of NURBS surface modelling. Drawings, renderings and scaled facsimiles were produced from both types of model, and proved invaluable in the formal analysis of the objects by architectural historians. It is suggested that these digital methods are more objective and accurate than traditional drawings and plaster reconstructions, and the resulting datasets more sustainable and of greater value to subsequent researchers.
